Sholto Gilbertson, Bonhams director of motor cars, said: "Chris Evans is offering 13 incredible motor cars at Bonhams sale, a stable which includes six outstanding Ferraris.
"Chris has been a long-standing client of Bonhams, so we're delighted to offer his incredible motor cars at Bonhams Goodwood Revival Sale.
"In refreshing his collection, others will have the opportunity to enjoy Chris's fantastic cars - after all, you never 'own' a classic car, you enjoy it, look after it and pass it on for others to appreciate."
More than 140 lots of Evans' Automobilia will also be offered, the proceeds of which will be donated to Children in Need.

Other motor cars offered from Chris Evans include a 1949 Jaguar XK120 'Alloy' Roadster estimated at between £500,000-£600,000 and a 1967 Jaguar XKSS 'Lynx', estimate £325,000-£375,000.
The sale takes place on September 12 at Goodwood in Chichester, West Sussex.
In June 2014's Supercar Event held at Dunsfold Park in aid of The Children's Trust, Evans auctioned off five rides around the Top Gear track in his LaFerrari.
