Two cars owned by former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman are to be sold at auction next month.

A 1971 Citroen Maserati SM is expected to fetch between £35,000 and £40,000 and a 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250S £20,000 to £25,000 at the sale on June 26.

He drove the cars to studios during the recording of several famous Stones albums, including Beggars Banquet (1968), Let It Bleed (1969), Exile On Main St (1972) and Tattoo You (1981).

Wyman said: "From 1971 to 1982, I was living in the South of France and I frequently drove the Maserati from my new home in Vence to Paris, where we recorded the albums Some Girls, Emotional Rescue and Tattoo You."
