GALLERY: Dream cars coming up for auction

You don’t have to be a fully-signed up petrol head to appreciate this sneak preview of rare cars set to come under the hammer in Bedfordshire.

But if you are, the pictures are enough to set the heart racing even if some of the guide prices might cause you to break out in a sweat.

E Type Jaguar for sale at Classic Central's November 2015 auction PNL-151027-123208001

E Type Jaguar for sale at Classic Central's November 2015 auction PNL-151027-123208001

For a mere £100,000 to £120,000 you could be driving home in a beautiful E Type Jag, polished to perfection in red, with newly-upholstered leather seats.

Or if your inner boy racer is itching to get behind the wheel check out the more reasonably priced classic Ford Cortina and Escorts.

For head-turning class, there is a sleek 1970 Citroen DS, and for the ultimate in cute there is a pristine 1986 Fiat 126, or a classic 1967 Morris Minor 1000.

And anyone who is a fan of Mater from the Pixar pic CARS will love the 1948 Ford F1 Pickup.
