Shatner will sign both for the buyer.

He said: "Mechanical things have always fascinated me.

"The sound of the exhaust, the ticking of the engine, the sleekness of the design have intrigued and entranced me.

"I look for cars like the ones I am selling: this great VW Phaeton - one of the most advanced cars in the world at its time - and this Aston Martin DB7, which is a jewel of design.

"Barrett-Jackson is one of the great names in car auctions. I have two wonderful cars that I am sending to them.

"They are like my kids, but I know they will get great care and I will be there for the adoption process. I am looking forward to it."

Shatner is a famous lover of all things automobile. Last year he drove his self-designed motorbike, The Rivet, over 2,000 miles across the US for charity.

His memorabilia is also very much in demand. In 2006 he sold his kidney stone to an online auction site for $25,000.
