Stars and their cars

Jay Kay from Jamiroquai

by staff writer JP

1969 Dodge Charger owned by Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay

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

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

"A star-studded celebrity past… and one of the best examples of a 1969 Dodge Charger Bullitt"
Nick Whale, Managing Director at Silverstone Auctions

With a potent 8.2-litre V8 engine and 3-speed automatic gearbox, the left hand-drive American muscle car undoubtedly took centre stage when auctioned in 2018. The Silverstone Auctions Race Retro Classic Car Sale saw the final bid at £94,500, almost double its lower estimate.
