With the Six Nations getting underway, I thought it would be fun to put together some of the most famous luxury assets from each nation. Without further ado, here they are:
This Land Rover features contributions from a host of celebrities including Bear Grylls and Virginia McKenna. Made in celebration of the Defender’s history, this model sold at a Bonham’s charity auction for a record £400,000 in December 2016.
This champagne is so exclusive that two bottles of it sold for an astounding $84,700 at a New York City auction in 2008 – that’s almost £57,000! Up until then, this year had never been available to the public.
Eileen Gray’s chair sold at Christie’s for roughly £19,000,000 in 2009 in a sale dedicated to the collection of Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Berge.
A classic amongst classics, it is considered one of the best sports cars of the 1960’s. One of these Ferraris is coming up for sale at Retromobile in Paris on the 4th of February, with estimates of £1.4m – £2.5m.
This is the most expensive whisky in the world selling for £381,620 in January of 2014. Only four of the special Lalique decanters were produced, and this was the only one offered to the public.
Kiffyn Williams is one of Wales’ most famous artists, known for his immediately recognisable paintings of Welsh landscapes. Williams joined the RA in 1975, in the middle of Welsh rugby’s second Golden Age.
