England - Finished in imposing, shiny gloss black paint and with a hand-finished leather interior, this particular ‘Bullitt’ spec model is based on the car in the cult 1968 film starring ‘King of Cool’ Steve McQueen.

Owned by Bruce Willis for ten years as a gift from his first wife, actress Demi Moore, Jay Kay bought the car in 2008 from the American actor and producer and imported it to the UK.

The comprehensive history file shows that in 2014 Jay Kay spent £25 000 to have the engine rebuilt and upgraded as part of an improvement package to make the car as near perfect as possible, resulting in an incredible driving machine that performs as well as it sounds.

Nick Whale, managing director at Silverstone Auctions, said: “What can we say about this amazing car! Aside from the fact that it has been enjoyed by two massive global mega-stars – Bruce Willis and Jay Kay – it is also an unbelievable example in its own right.

“Indeed, its star-studded celebrity past will attract interest from bidders around the world, who will also appreciate that it is one of the best examples of a 1969 Dodge Charger ‘Bullitt’ spec model currently available to buy.”

With a potent 8.2-litre V8 engine and 3-speed automatic gearbox, the left hand-drive American muscle car is estimated at between £50 000 and £60 000.
