YouTuber finds £1million worth of cars in secret underground bunker

Two YouTubers have discovered £1million vintage cars, including one that belonged to a Malaysian Prime Minister, in an abandoned underground bunker.

The video captures the moment Ben and Eran, who run the Lost Adventures YouTube account, ventured into a building in Surrey – after eyeing it for several years – and ‘stumbled’ across a vintage car collection.

The “fascinating collection” of vintage cars included a variety of British classics, including a Formula 1 racing car, Bentley and Bristol Cars. They also found retro taxis, several prototypes, and several wooden replicas.

The discoverers revealed that the vehicles were in the bunker when the owners prepared the collection for auction.

The couple called the underground car park an “incredible place” and said they “have never seen cars like this on the street.”

Ben and Eran explored the lot in May 2020 as officials were preparing the vehicles for auction.

“I’ve had my eye on it for a few years because it looked so interesting,” Eran said.

“We set out to explore the abandoned building without realizing what it was. We jumped down only to find millions of pounds worth of cars under that place.’

They found the collection of vintage cars – some models so old that Eran said he “don’t even know half of what I see” – and various parts and signs.

Above all, they found a Proton Perdana, previously owned by Dr. Mahathir Mohammad, former Prime Minister of Malaysia. He had allegedly sent the car to the UK to help with hybrid fuel research.

“You would never see these cars on the street even if someone bought them. This was a once-in-a-lifetime look at these cars,” said the explorer.

“These cars are under this thing. This is madness.

“Absolutely crazy how much money these cars are worth. It’s just crazy.”

David Fletcher, the auctioneer in charge of the sale of the collection, estimates the total value at around £1 million.

He told The Sun the “fascinating collection” was also “very sad” because it marked the end of independent carmaker Bristol Cars.

The bunker that Ben and Eran explored was being used to store the company’s leftover stocks, Mr. Fletcher confirmed. He said most of the cars in the garage had been brought from the company’s showroom in Kensington.

“I’m presiding over the demise of Britain’s last independent carmaker, which is a very poignant, historic moment,” he said of the auction.

It’s unclear when the car sale will take place, as neither Fletcher nor his employer, Wyles Hardy & Co, immediately responded to Mail Online’s request for comment.

The Bristol-based company was formed after World War II as part of the Bristol Airplane Company and became independent in 1960. All of his vehicles were hand-built, as the small-batch manufacturer didn’t mass-produce.

Favored by wealthy car lovers, Bristol Cars garnered a “cult following” before going out of business in 2011.

The company revived in 2015 and announced a new car, The Bristol Bullet, but the vehicle never went on sale.

Bristol Cars collapsed again in 2020 and most of its assets were sold. However, the company will continue to operate under the Bristol Cars 8.0 name.

The company has announced a plan to revitalize the brand ahead of its 80th anniversary in 2025 as the “British Electric Vehicle Company”.
