1949 Vincent Black Lightning
The same auction will also see the sale of a Vincent Black Lightning, one of only 30 ever made.
Sometimes called the ‘Ferrari GTO of two wheels’, this beautiful example (the second one built) is expected to fetch between £300,000 – 380,000.
Ordered new in 1949 for Swiss NSU factory team racer Hans Stärkle, it has a full ownership history and is the earliest most original example in existence.
