Formerly owned by the late Star Wars star Kenny Baker...registered on the 17th May 1982 this right-hand drive fixed head coupé was bought by the diminutive screen actor on the 6th June 2002. Birmingham-born Kenny, who died on the 13th August 2016, rose to prominence playing R2-D2, the robot sidekick in six of the Star Wars films, and acting as a consultant in the latest film. Presented to auction with a comprehensive history file and MOT until July 2017, this 76,500-mile luxury coupé will need some corrective work to the sills and bodywork.
