Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: YK625224215 Year: 1964 Make: Morris Model: Mini Cooper S Issigonis’ friend John Cooper, owner of the Cooper Car Company and designer and builder of Formula One and rally cars, saw the potential of the Mini for competition.

1990 Mazda MX-5 17,000 miles from new

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1990 Mazda MX-5 17,000 miles from new Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: JMZNA18B200107571 Year: 1990 Make: Mazda Model: MX5 Launched at the Chicago Motor Show in 1989 as a 970kg lightweight, two seater roadster with near 50/50 weight distribution, the MX-5 has gone on to be one of the highest unit volume selling cars of all time. A natural successor to the Lotus Elan, MGA and Triumph Spitfire, powered by a 1598cc 115bhp engine, it is now entirely legitimate to call the early MX-5 Mk1 a true design icon. This particular vehicle can only be described in terms of being ‘as new’ or ‘showroom’ condition. Covering a total of just 17,025 miles (backed up by all MOTs and its Mazda stamped service book) the car was first registered 13 August 1990. The car was in the first batch of UK delivered cars. We know this because launch cars were only available in either red, white or blue, fitted with electric windows and equipped with a black leather Momo steering wheel. Unmarked inside, outside and underside, we understand it claimed 2nd prize in the national MX-5 concours in 2013. Three owners in total, with fully documented and comprehensive service history (the last service carried out in March 2016 – including new cam belt and tyres) the car in our view must be one of the best available, anywhere in the world. The car comes supplied with fully fitted Mazda MX-5 car cover, tonneau cover and a box file full of receipts, books and brochures. If ever a car can be described as a future classic, then this one must be it.

1999 Maserati Quattroporte

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1999 Maserati Quattroporte Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: ZAM3337B0000350111 Year: 1999 Make: Maserati Model: Quattroporte The Quattroporte was a four-door, five-seater saloon with a steel unibody construction. The overall layout remained unchanged from the Biturbos from which the car descended: longitudinal front engine, rear-wheel drive, all-independent suspension with MacPherson struts upfront and trailing arms at the rear. Despite these similarities the suspension had been re-engineered: rear trailing arms had a tube framework structure like on the Shamal, and together with the limited slip differential were attached to the body via a newly designed tubular subframe. The fourth generation Quattroporte (Tipo AM337) was built from 1994 to 2001. It was built on an evolved and stretched version of the Biturbo saloons’ architecture, and used twin-turbocharged V6 and V8 engines respectively from the Maserati Shamal and Ghibli coupés. For this reason the car retained very compact exterior dimensions, and is smaller than any of its predecessors and successors. As the designer’s signature angular rear wheel arches gave away, the wedge-shaped aerodynamic body was the work of Marcello Gandini. This lovely example presented in claret with black leather interior comes with its original hand book and with automatic transmission. The interior is in very good original condition and the engine has been described by the vendor to be excellent. This is a desirable iconic Italian sports saloon which is in good condition throughout and would be great as a comfortable fast tourer.

1954 FIAT 500C ‘Topolino’ Belvedere Estate Car

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1954 FIAT 500C ‘Topolino’ Belvedere Estate Car Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 419714 Year: 1954 Make: Fiat Model: 500C Better equipped than many cars twice its size, the FIAT 500 – soon nicknamed ‘Topolino’ (mouse) – brought a degree of refinement hitherto unknown to small cars when launched in 1936. Lockheed hydraulic brakes, independent front suspension and 12-volt electrics were all features while an engine mounted ahead of the front axle helped maximise cabin space for the two occupants. The 569cc, four-cylinder, sidevalve motor produced a modest 13bhp but as the Topolino weighed little more than half a ton it could nevertheless manage a respectable 50mph-plus under favourable conditions. For most buyers though, the frugal (up-to-50mpg) fuel consumption would have been the major attraction. Introduced in 1946, the 500B featured a more powerful (16.5bhp) overhead-valve engine that would be carried over to the Topolino’s final incarnation – the restyled 500C of 1949, which was the first FIAT model to offer a heating/de-misting system as standard. At the same time as the 500B was introduced, a Giardiniera estate car (also known as the Belvedere) was added to the range, offering four-seat accommodation as well as increased luggage space. Equipped with the superior overhead-valve engine, these later Topolinos were genuine 60mph cars, though no less economical than their predecessors. Highly impressed by the little Fiat’s capabilities, Autocar concluded its 1949 test report on a Giardiniera most favourably: ‘…this exceptionally small car is a highly attractive proposition, whether it be judged on the score of pleasure in driving, economy or all-round utility,’ which pretty much sums up its appeal today. The vendor advises us that he purchased this charming Topolino from its previous owner of in Italy where it has resided its entire life. Restored while in the previous owner’s care, the car is attractively finished in green with red interior and fabric roof. Offered with a UK NOVA.

1952 Alfa Romeo 1900 M ‘Matta’ Mille Miglia Eligibl

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900 M ‘Matta’ Mille Miglia Eligibl Reg. Number: Italian Registered Chassis Number: AR5101739 Year: 1952 Make: Alfa Romeo Model: 1900 M Despite the obvious, AR does not stand for Alfa Romeo, but rather Autovettura da Ricognizione, or reconnaissance vehicle. Based on a formula devised by Italy’s Ministry of Defense, Alfa Romeo took to the challenge to design a vehicle that could overcome all obstacles. Somewhat irreverently, it was also called the Alfa Matta, which translates to Mad Alfa, the forebear of the modern sport utility vehicle. Alfa delivered 2,000 to the Italian government, along with another 50 for civilian use. It was produced from 1952 to 1954, when it became known as the AR52. Specifications issued by the Italian military for a reconnaissance vehicle referenced the ubiquitous Willys Jeep, of which there were many in Italy following World War II. The first step of Alfa’s design team, headed by Giuseppe Busso, was to acquire a Land Rover, a vehicle considered superior by the design chief in comparison to the American Jeep. By April of 1951, a prototype based on the Land Rover, with a new front end and a 65-horsepower, 1,900-cubic centimetre twin-cam engine, took to the road, driven by Consalvo Sanesi. Only a few days later, the army’s representative, Colonel Garbani, identified a number of problems to be addressed. A brand new prototype appeared on 5 October. Fitted with independent front suspension and a rigid rear axle, four-wheel drum brakes, and a torpedo-shaped body that could be covered with a canvas top for all-weather protection, it weighed just 1,250 kilograms. This time, Colonel Garbani reported favourable results, and the vehicle was put in production. Engineer Antonio Alessio, then managing director of Alfa, saw the vehicle in action, and it is he who is credited with nicknaming it the “Matta.” Ultimately, the Ministry’s order went to Fiat. Most of the AR51s produced went to Italy’s Carabinieri, army, and police force before production ceased. Interestingly, the vehicle was entered in the 1952 Mille Miglia in the Military Vehicle category, beating the similar Fiat Campagnolas by 42 minutes. Later, the off-roaders appeared in the Monte Grosso, Artico Lualdi, Fratellanza, Peace, and the Vaticano–Peking raids, as well as the Bonzi Expedition to Indonesia. This spartan Alfa Romeo reconnaissance vehicle is in off-road-ready condition and willing to take on any terrain one could find themselves crossing. In the unlikely event one should get stuck in a rut, the rear-mounted spade and pickaxe may very well come in handy. A unique alternative to the Willys Jeep and Fiat Campagnola, this Alfa Matta will be a sure-fire hit to any collector.

1989 Mini ‘30’ By Wood & Pickett 25,000 Recorded Miles

Description: 1989 Mini ‘30’ By Wood & Pickett 25,000 Recorded Miles Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: SAXXL2S1N20438163 Year: 1989 Make: Mini Model: 30 By the time the Mini celebrated its 30th anniversary it had already passed the remarkable production milestone of 5 million (achieved in 1986). Based on the Mini Mayfair and introduced in June 1989, the ‘30’ was the most luxuriously equipped Mini Limited Edition model to date. Just two alternative paint schemes were offered – Cherry Red or black – featuring contrasting duo-tone coachlines and ‘1959-1989’ decals and bonnet badge. Wheelarch extensions, door mirrors and sill covers were colour matched to the body, chrome finish being reinstated for the grille, bumpers and door handles, while Minilite-style alloy wheels (soon to feature on the Mini Cooper) were a particularly handsome addition to the package. 3,000 cars were built for the UK market, the colour split being 2,000 in red, 1,000 in black. Since the 1960s, Wood & Pickett was the premiere coach builder for Minis, outfitting vehicles for both celebrities and royalty. These included members of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, Elton John, celebrity sportsmen and members of the acting fraternity. Wood & Pickett were justly proud that they produced the most expensive Minis in the world. High-end interior finishes and personalized details adorned the mini’s belonging to many of the rich and famous over the years and one noteworthy example is Mick Jagger’s Cooper, though exact specifications and whereabouts are not known. Not only is this Mini ‘30’ finished in the rarer black livery with matching red-piped leather interior, however it, just like Jaggers Cooper, has ‘Wood & Pickett’ coachwork, rare for any Mini, let alone for one of the Anniversary Mini ‘30’s. Other noteworthy mentions for this wonderful three owner car from new include, a wood-trimmed dashboard, a sunroof and luxurious leather trimming. In storage for the last ten years, the car has been re-commissioned and MoT’d. A total of 25,000 recorded miles have been recorded on the odometer. Included in the cars history file are its MoT certificate and Swansea V5 document, stamped service book & original after sale service voucher, mini handbook and numerous invoices.

1987 Fergus Ulster 2-Seater Sport One of Seven special-build cars - Inspired by the Aston Martin Ulster

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1987 Fergus Ulster 2-Seater Sport One of Seven special-build cars - Inspired by the Aston Martin Ulster Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: ZEQABJSZ423N Year: 1987 Make: Fergus Model: Ulster Only thirty ‘Ulsters’ were built by the factory. They were the most successful of the Aston Martin factory racers with the highest place at Le Mans being 3rd in 1935. They also competed at the Tourist Trophy, Mille Miglia, Targa Abruzzi and were frequently seen at Brooklands amongst other UK and international race tracks. Having been developed and driven by Bertelli himself, the Ulster was a pure sports car and was the culmination of over ten years of continuous racing experience. Still, even today, very few sports cars boast the pedigree of the Aston Martin ‘Ulster’. If you have always yearned for an Ulster, then this has to be the ultimate alternative. This replica is one of only 7 factory built replicas manufactured in 1987 by Fergus Engineering. Finished in British Racing Green, the car had been in its previous ownership some 20 years, and was regularly serviced and maintained by him. Described as starting on the button, the engine being based on a BMC 1800, provides a wonderful rasp. Every last detail is as accurate as possible, complete with AM badging and livery, and a beautiful patina on chrome and finish. The body is two part Aluminum and fiberglass, a caged cockpit and bespoke chassis. Huge storage in the rear boat tail, accessed from behind the seats, both of which are adjustable. The dashboard houses period instruments, with a four spoke steering wheel. The twin aero screens give a high level of protection. It sits very well on its correct 18” wire wheels and tyres. In addition to it’s outstanding appearance the quality of the ride is exceptional. Make no mistake this machine is huge fun to drive, even happily accommodating the owner who is 6ft 3. A nicely worn, period Aston Martin ceramic badge sits on top of the front grill. The leather is soft and supple, not cracked or dry. The carpets are complete and slightly worn. Complete with UK V5 title, MoT until August 2017, and a history file with various bills and receipts. It is also supplied with a tonneau cover. EX I934 is arguably the nearest thing to real 1930s motoring you can have at this price. According to the vendor, the detail in this model is truly outstanding, and she has been to VSCC meetings on several occasions and always gathers a crowd, who are always incredulous that the car is a replica. You must be ‘prepared to be surrounded wherever you take her, as she delights children and adults alike’. A very rare opportunity to own the nearest thing to a real Ulster, and become a welcomed and respected member to a very exclusive club.

1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: 13098312028787 Year: 1968 Make: Mercedes-Benz Model: 280SL In the Spring of 1963, Mercedes-Benz debuted an all-new roadster to replace the 190SL and 300SL- The 230SL. The 230SL ‘Pagoda’ was a stunning Paul Bracq designed two-seat convertible that followed Mercedes’ new design language, featuring crisp lines and upright headlights. The 230 SL was fitted with a prominent three-pointed star in its grill as a reference to the already iconic 300SL. To save on weight, the hood, door skins, trunk lid, and tonneau cover are all composed of aluminium. The nickname ‘Pagoda’ was quickly adopted thanks to the slightly concave roof on the optional removable hardtop that resembled a pagoda roof. Although controversial at its introduction, these SLs are now considered a masterpiece of design. In 1967, Mercedes introduced the third and final iteration of the ‘Pagoda’, the 280SL. The 280 featured the same modified W111 chassis with a rear swing axle and independent front suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Power came from a 2.8-litre version of Mercedes’ robust inline-six and used Bosch fuel injection- a combination producing 160 horsepower in US-market variants, which had to be modified slightly to comply with emissions standards. To compensate, the rear-end ratios were changed in these US-market cars to offer greater low-end acceleration. While the 280SL did not offer the performance of the 300SL, it is a very charming model with capable handling and braking thanks to its suspension and all-wheel disc brakes. These roadsters also have one of the most beautiful bodies produced in the 1960s and thanks to their robust inline-6 and luxurious Mercedes interior are wonderful cars to be driven and enjoyed. Delivered new to the USA and re-patriated back to the UK in 2014 this wonderful silver over black 280SL can only be described as in excellent overall condition. During a recent restoration in 2015, the body was sandblasted and stripped before being painted in the iconic silver arrows colours. With new suspension and braking system overhauled , it is now in mechanically excellent condition. Offered with a UK MoT and UK V5 registration, it is easy to see why these 280SL Mercedes sports cars remain popular today.

1995 Aston Martin DB7 18,000 Miles from New

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1995 Aston Martin DB7 18,000 Miles from New Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: SCFAA212X5K100063 Year: 1995 Make: Aston Martin Model: DB7 Introduced to the public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin’s first six cylinder model since production of the DB6 Mk. II ended in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen in its design. Arguably one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted new customers worldwide with its traditional layout, curvaceous two door coupé body and a powerful six cylinder engine. With a claimed top-speed of 165mph these are every inch a supercar but equally are surprisingly docile and tractable as an everyday road car. This particularly iconic racing green coupe has covered a mere 18,400 miles from new and is supplied with supporting service history and can only be described as excellent in terms of condition.

1965 Iso Revolta IR 340 Original unrestored matching numbers example

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1965 Iso Revolta IR 340 Original unrestored matching numbers example Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: IR410481 Year: 1965 Make: Iso Model: Revolta IR 340 The Iso Rivolta is a luxurious Coupé introduced in 1962 by Iso Automotoveicoli S.p.A. of Bresso, a suburb of Milan. Company chairman Renzo Rivolta and his colleague, former Ferrari engineer Giotto Bizzarrini saw it as a Gran-Turismo Car in the original sense of the term, designed for long and memorable journeys. For motor racing, however, the car was homologated not as a GT but as a Touring Car. The manufacturer wanted the car to be known for its powerful engine, high quality of construction and elegant style. Expensive press-tool dies were produced, but volumes never justified the investment in presses to go with them, and for several years the dies were kept at the factory and periodically sent out to be fitted to a sub-contracted press in the area in order that a batch of body panels could be produced. Although originally envisaged as a competitor for the elegant Fiat 2300 Coupé, the low sales volumes achieved by the Iso Rivolta 300 made it prudent to move the car and its price upmarket. A 5.4 litre V8 engine was fitted, similar to one of the units installed in the Chevrolet Corvette. The all-synchromesh four-speed gear change was operated with a central floor mounted stick shift. This particular example, originally from the United States, is presented in a condition which can only be described as a “ restoration” project. The car, however, runs and drives and is totally original with matching numbers, Borrani wheels , spare wheel, jack and comes with a 4 speed gearbox. This gearbox is mated to a hefty 5.4 Litre 327 Cubic inch V8. These are extremely rare Italian Bertone designed cars which are highly sought after and would make a wonderful concours restoration project. Presented in red with black interior and with everything original and unmolested, this is quite simply one of the most exciting projects available at this time.

2001 Porsche 996 GT3 Cup Rally

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 2001 Porsche 996 GT3 Cup Rally Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: WPOZZZ99215698849 Year: 2001 Make: Porsche Model: GT3 Cup Rally The motorsport department of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, developed a new aerodynamic kit for the 2001-specification of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. Modifications bring the engine closer to the road version thus ensuring less running costs as well as better equality of chances. Thanks to these comprehensive changes the near-standard racing car achieves faster lap times, offers further improved handling and easier service. The most obvious feature of the new GT3 Cup was its large fixed rear wing which more than doubles downforce at the rear axle. A modified front section ensured perfect aerodynamic balance. Tests proved faster lap times and at the same time, tyre wear was reduced due to less skidding. Heat dissipation from the engine, gearbox and brakes was significantly improved. The front section channeled the hot air from the enlarged central radiator upwards and this modification ensures that hot air no longer flows to the engine. A gearbox cowling, adopted from the 911 Turbo, improved the cooling. This 996 GT3 started life as a conventional 996 GT3 Cup car before being adapted to its current Rally Cup style. The car has been re-bodied to a 2003 style including a Carrera 2 front end to make space for the spare wheel and to help with weight distribution and the chassis has been strengthened where necessary. Underneath, the engine has been totally overhauled in 2013 with a new exhaust system from the last evolution 996 cup and fans have been added to the ventilators in the front. The gearbox has been completely overhauled by R-Power with shorter gears and a RS Cup clutch. Presented in white, without its racing colours and decals this car is ready to race.

Description: 1964 Marcos 1800 GT Ex Roger Ealand Multi Championship Winning Car - Original Race Car Reg. Number: BAD 323B Chassis Number: 4008 Year: 1964 Make: Marcos Model: 1800 GT This remarkable GT Sports car has a wonderful full history file which can be seen at our office – outlined below is just a sample of information on this important race car. This Marcos has had only 6 owners from new, Howard Steele of Wild Goose Garage in Gloucestershire being the first and was first registered in July 1964. The record of owners were then Chris Boulter, John Northcroft, David Pratley, Roger Ealand and lastly the present vendor. In 1969 Chris Boulter won the Freddie Dixon Trophy in this car, registered as BAD 323B ( and still is to this day) this was the first Championship in which a Marcos had won! Roger Ealand then won HSCC’s Classic and Sportscar Championship titles in 1981 and 1984 in this car. The car was then based in Australia for nearly 25 years and in 2009, whilst there, the car participated in the Historic under card at the Melbourne Formula One Grand Prix. The car then returned to the UK in the hands of David Methley ( well-known Historic racer and Marcos guru and friend of Roger Ealand) in 2010, when it was subsequently sold to the present owner. The vendor has competed in this car up until April 2016 when he “ hung up his helmet” and has decided to sell this fabulously successful GT racer. During his custodianship, he won numerous Classic Sports Car and Swinging Sixties races, was a Goodwood 2013 Class winner, HRDC “All Stars” winner on at least 6 ocassions including American Speed Fest June 2015, beating Bill Shepherd’s Mustang into second place and John Youngs E-Type into third! The car also competed in the 2012 Young Timer at the Nurburgring where it was on pole in “ Blue Group”. Also to note, it still holds the lap record at Donnigton in CSCC Swinging Sixties for a Marcos 1800GT. The engine is a Volvo B18 (1800) 40 mm valves, with Acrolite pistons and Carillo style rods and the gearbox is a Volvo M40. Full specifications of the car can be seen on file as well as the list of spares which comes with the car. This is a golden opportunity to acquire one of the most competitive GT racers in its series with a proven track record which is fully documented and is undoubtedly the most complete history of any Marcos that has been raced since its birth to the current day. The car still retains its registration of BAD 323B today. A substantial history file, with original photographs showing Roger Ealand and other owners at the wheel , as well as other various clippings etc.. all of which can be viewed. This also includes its original green log book showing its first registration and also a copy of the original build sheet.

1963 Deep Sanderson 301 Coupe – Le Mans Entrant 1963

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1963 Deep Sanderson 301 Coupe – Le Mans Entrant 1963 Reg. Number: N/A Chassis Number: 1003 Year: 1963 Make: Deep Model: Sanderson 301 Chris Lawrence was renowned for building Fomula Junior’s chassis since 1959, for his victory at the Freddy Dixon’s Trophy driving his Morgan, and for his special preparations of Triumph’s engines, which once set in the Morgan +4 Factory TOK 258, allows him to win the 2 liters class at Le Mans in 1962, performing 13th place at the Scratch. He then decided to create his own car, called Deep Sanderson, brand name inspired by a fashionable jazz band called Heep Sanderson, combined with his uncle’s name Tony Sanderson, who supported the project. He introduced his little coupé DS 301 at the Olympia’s car show in January 1962. During the show, Mike Costin and Colin Chapman visit his stand and have long discussions with him about the technical solutions chosen by Chris Lawrence to build his coupé. The style inspired the future Lotus Europe and Jaguar E Type. Chris Lawrence’s coupé DS 301 raced at Le Mans in 1963 in the 1000cc class. He ordered a special engine to Downtown Engineering Works, set at the back of the car with chassis n°3 (1003), plate number 2 ARX. Chris Lawrence drove the car himself, assisted by Chris Spender. Performances were fantastic, with a maximum speed timed at 152,6 MPH (245 km/h).Leading the 1000cc class, he is disqualified during the 20th hour of the race, for having not crossed enough distance at midnight. During the 1962 season, the n°3 coupé raced the Nurburgring’s 1000 km, then the Trophée d’Auvergne and Brands Hatch. Deep Sanderson returns back to Le Mans in 1964 with 2 coupés DS 301 in the 1300 cc class, but he failed during the test runs. Lawrence will also be back in 1968 with a DS 302, powered by a Ford Cortina’s 1500 cc engine. The car was sold during the sixties to a French, Mr Muratore, who raced with it until the early 80’s. The car was abandoned until David Ramsbotham who has completely restored it with the assistance of Chris Lawrence himself bought it. The restoration ended in 2009 and the car was back to the Fordwater’s trophy at Goodwood , with Richad Meins, and at The Grand Prix Historique de Pau in 2011. This car is now offered for sale with a huge amount of documentation and an origin certificate signed by Chris Lawrence (who passed away in August 2011).It owns a Historical Technical Passport (MSA/FIA) and an engine power analysis dating September 2016. It is ready to race again!

Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: WPOZZZ96ZLS400194 Year: 1989 Make: Porsche Model: 964 RWB The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive as options. The 964 was considered to be 85% new as compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2. The first 964s available in 1989 were all wheel drive equipped “Carrera 4″ models; Porsche added the rear wheel drive Carrera 2 variant to the range in 1990. Both variants were available as a coupe, Targa or Cabriolet. The 964 Carrera was the last generation sold with the traditional removable Targa roof. Later evolutions of the Targa, starting with the 993 generation, replaced that setup with a complex glass-roof “greenhouse” system. A new naturally aspirated engine called the M64 was used for 964 models, with a flat-6 displacement of 3.6 litres. Porsche substantially revised the suspension, replacing the rear torsion bars with coil springs and shock absorbers. Power steering and ABS brakes were added to the 911 for the first time; both were standard. The exterior bumpers and fog lamps became flush into the car, allowing for better aerodynamics. A new electric rear spoiler raised at speeds above 50 mph and lowered down flush with the rear engine lid at lower speeds or at rest. A new automatic climate control system provided superior heating and cooling. This stunning 964 is largely a racing car but has been made road legal. Complete with a full RWB Type body, the car has an upgrade list too long to cover in full but can be viewed in the file. Some upgrades includes upgraded front and rear brakes, a full APR exhaust system, APR Coilover Suspension, upgraded clutch, Recaro Racing seats and Willans harnesses. This car is fully race prepared. As well as being superb to look at, the car is frighteningly quick and is unlikely to be beaten on any track day. Presented in dark green and with 55,300miles on the clock, the car provides a precise and unadulterated driving experience.

Description: 2016 Ford GT40 Evocation Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: 108R0605 Year: 2016 Make: Ford Model: GT40 Evocation ‘An original GT40 is priceless, but an equally charismatic alternative is the GTD40. The pair are indistinguishable from five paces, let alone 50, so faithful is GTD’s replica even to the discerning eye. The GTD is no “kit car”, but a thoroughbred in every sense.’ – Autosport magazine 1989. A decade on from its final Le Mans win, the GT40 had become firmly established as one of the all-time great classic sports cars, leading to an increased demand for unmolested originals and the start of a replica-building industry. With a mere 107 GT40s being constructed at Ford Advanced Vehicles’ Slough factory between 1966 and 1972, it is hardly surprising that a cottage industry of independent manufacturers arose to satisfy the continuing demand for replicas of Ford’s charismatic Le Mans winner. Built designed and developed by the Legend Prof John Morris and his team in South Africa , this incredible incarnation of the GT40 is built to be as exacting as an original. Powered by a stunning 5 litre V8. Finsihed in blue with white stripes and a complementary black interior this wonderful example is supplied to us as new and unregistered. A full and detailed build specification is available on request. Not to be confused with the lesser Kit examples this car is certainly worth closer inspection.

Description: 1953 Lancia Aurelia B22 Saloon Mille Miglia Eligible - Ex Giovanni Bracco Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: B22 - 1267 Year: 1953 Make: Lancia Model: Aurelia B22 The Lancia Aurelia was a car produced by Italian manufacturer Lancia from 1950 to the summer of 1958. It is noted for using the first production V6 engine. Establishing a post-war Lancia tradition, the car was named after a Roman road: the Via Aurelia, leading from Rome to Pisa. The Aurelia was designed under the direction of engineer Vittorio Jano. Its engine, the first production V6 engine, a 60° design developed by Francesco de Virgilio—who was between 1943 and 1948 a Lancia engineer, and who worked under Jano. At the rear was an innovative combination transaxle with the gearbox, clutch, differential, and inboard-mounted drum brakes. The front suspension was a sliding pillar design, with rear semi-trailing arms. The Aurelia was also first car to be fitted with radial tyres as standard equipment. The second series Aurelia coupé pushed power up to 80 hp from the 1991 cc V6 with a higher compression ratio and repositioned valves. Other changes included better brakes and minor styling tweaks, such as chromed bumpers instead of the aluminium ones used in the earlier car. A new dashboard featured two larger instrument gauges. The suspension was unchanged from the first series. The B22 saloon was released in 1952 with dual Webers and a hotter camshaft which was good for 87 bhp at 4,300 rpm. In the 1951 Mille Miglia the 2-litre Aurelia, driven by Giovanni Bracco and Umberto Maglioli, finished 2nd beaten only by the Ferrari America. The same year it took first in class and 12th overall at Le Mans. Modified Aurelias took the first three places on 1952’s Targa Florio with Felice Bonetto as the winner and another win on Lièges-Rome-Lièges of 1953. Licensed as VC 36882 it was first owned by Giovanni Bracco, who then sold to Sandro Fasanino. He in turn sold the Lancia to Pietro Antonio Galliano. Bracco has won the Mille Miglia on at least one occasion! There are copies of supporting documentation, invoices for parts and servicing, and its original Italian licensing paperwork. It is also fitted with the extremely rare period-correct sports steering wheel. A rare opportunity to find a Mille Miglia eligible vehicle at this price level.

1980 Porsche 924 Richard Hammond BBC Top Gear Screen Featured

Description: 1980 Porsche 924 Richard Hammond BBC Top Gear Screen Featured Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: TBA Year: 1980 Make: Porsche Model: 924 The Porsche 924 is a luxury sports car which was produced by Porsche AG of Germany from 1976 to 1988. A two-door, 2+2 coupé, the 924 replaced the 914 as the company’s entry-level model, and was the model that finally retired the 912. In production terms, the 924 was the first Porsche model powered by a water-cooled, front-mounted engine although the similarly configured 928 was designed first. The front-engine, rear wheel drive arrangement was normal for most other manufacturers, but it was unusual for Porsche having previously only used mid- or rear-mounted engines of a boxer configuration, all of which had been air-cooled. It was the first Porsche to be offered with a fully automatic transmission. This car appeared on Top Gear in the Series 5 Episode 6 ‘Cheap Porsche Challenge’. Each presenter had £1500 to spend on a Porsche of their choice. Richard Hammond opted for this very 924. The Porsches went through a number of challenges including driving from London to Brighton and being lapped around the Top Gear track by The Stig. Richard decided to mod the 924 for the track challenge, lightening the car by removing the standard seats and carpets, plus new tyres and shocks were fitted. He also added the distinctive flame design on the car, with number stickers and a matt black bonnet. Jeremy Clarkson add in pen ‘inches tall’ below one of the 54 number stickers which still remains on the car. After it’s appearance on Top Gear the car was sold privately and has competed in a number of Sprint events in the South East of England. This is a very rare chance to buy a piece of British television motoring history.

Description: 1962 Morris Mini Special Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: 059505 Year: 1962 Make: Morris Model: Mini Special This Mini was imported from Australia in September 2014. It has a NOVA certifcate so all duties etc are paid. It has only covered running in mileage on a bench tester and 90% of components are brand new. All the special bits are there as can be seen and on a list which can be viewed in the file. lt is in beautiful condition and has never been raced. lt could be returned to a very quick and stylish road car or raced as was originally intended. Cylinder head work and cam grinding was done by respected Australian race engineer and tuner Graham Russell, he is a colleague of legendary David Vizard and they consult each other on flow bench testing etc. The engine is tuned to run on 100 octane leaded race fuel but could be returned to run on unleaded with additive. The bodywork is an original 1962 Morris Mini 850cc shell which has been sandblasted and excess metal removed and has had a steel roll cage welded into the body shell. Inside, a new race seat and 3 harness and window net have been fitted and the paintwork is Castrol 2 pack in green. All windows are Lehan and fitted into the original frames where possible. All window and door rubbers are new and the front screen is a new laminated unit. The carpet is made up to suit the floor area and the battery is mounted in the left hand rear of the car. This wonderful, quick “Special” is presented in fantastic all round condition in “ pea green” and would make a very interesting road car if converted but would also be a competitive entry to any hillclimb, sprint or circuit race. A lot of fun at a fraction of the cost if one was to build such a car to this specification.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 2003 Porsche 996 Turbo Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: TBA Year: 2003 Make: Porsche Model: 996 Turbo In 2000, Porsche introduced the 996 Turbo, equipped with four-wheel-drive and a 3.6-litre, twin turbocharged and intercooled flat-six producing 420bhp, making the car capable of 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds. In 2002, the standard models underwent minor re-styling, which included switching to the Turbo-style headlamps and to a new front fascia. These were sometimes known as the Mk2 generation of the 996. Although the Turbo is water-cooled, it is not the same engine that is found in regular 996s. The turbo engine can trace its ancestry back to the old air-cooled units and is directly related not only to the 996 GT3 but also the GT1 racer (3.2-litres and 600bhp!). The other 996 engines were a completely different design and had gasket problems that could lead to catastrophic failures, but not so the Turbo. This engine is very strong and can be tuned up to well over 500bhp. First registered in 2003 (on a 53 number plate) this 996 Turbo has three previous owners and has just over 101,000 miles from new. Finished in grey metallic with a contrasting black hide interior, the car boasts the aluminium-look package with aluminium coloured dials, gear lever and handbrake along with stainless-steel pipes and is described as being in original condition with no engine modifications. The car has a full documented service history carried out by Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield and HP Motorsports.

They were 8-cylinder cars, sold in several models: a 2-door club coupe, a 2-door convertible, 4-door convertible, a 4-door sedan a 4-door town car and a 4-door limousine. This rare 1930’s Cadillac 355 (Golfers) Drophead Coupe by Fleetwood, is liveried in real 23 carat Gold Leaf and is believed by the vendor, to have once belonged to the mega star pianist Liberace. While not pristine, the car is described as being in lovely condition and has been the subject of a considerable renovation at a cost of tens of thousands of pounds. The car spent 12 years in a German museum purporting to be Liberace’s Cadillac. As the car now stands, you can still see the gold plating on the inner door handles and even the wiper arms. The precious stones are still present in the hub caps but the mascot has lost one its rubies. The gear knob is now wood and the exterior handles would appear to be chrome. Another unique feature of the car is the driving lights, which swivel in concert with the steering wheels. The gold leaf coachwork is offset by the full, white leather upholstery and a working hood completes this stunning vehicle. The car is powered by a 5.7 Litre V8 engine which is mated to a 3 speed manual transmission. The has recently been fully serviced. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a piece of history with exceptional additions and cosmetic enhancements one can only dream of!

Description: 1959 Alfa Romeo 101 Giulietta Sprint Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: 1493 22221 Year: 1959 Make: Alfa Romeo Model: 101 Giulietta Sprint With the introduction of the Bertone-styled Giulietta Sprint in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the ‘small car, big performance’ formula that would characterise the Milanese marque’s finest offerings from then on. Alfa’s classic twin-cam four was downsized to 1,290ccc for the 750-Series Giulietta, gaining an alloy cylinder block in the process. The Sprint coupé was soon joined by Berlina and Spider versions, the latter styled by Pininfarina and built on a slightly shorter wheelbase. The Giulietta family’s success surprised even Alfa themselves; production targets were revised upwards and to satisfy demands for increased performance, upgraded Veloce versions of the Sprint and Spider were introduced. The combination of a rev-happy engine, fine-handling, responsive chassis and excellent brakes make the Giulietta Sprint a driver’s car par excellence and explains why these stylish Alfa Romeos continue to attract the discerning enthusiast today. The Giulietta Sprint on offer today is presented in Alfa racing red with a blue and white racing stripe and yellow undercarriage. The car has been used in hill climbs, sprints and road rallies for over thirty years competing in Vernasca Silver Flag, Gran Premio Nuvolari and many other Italian events and more recently at the Crystal Palace Sprint and Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb. The car has had major work carried out over the last ten years including: brakes, suspension, bodywork and a full engine rebuild by Paul Nash Racing in 2014. The engine is from a TI, and was modified earlier in its life to accommodate some Velocé and other performance parts, it currently runs with a single Solex carb. It is a 101 model from 1959/60, and fully road registered for UK with current MOT. There is a full rollcage, fuel cell, 123 distributor, TZ replica alloys, Cobra rally seats and a beautiful Nardi steering wheel from a Giulietta SS. The car was part of the Auto Storiche SportItalia Team during the 1990’s, previously owned and raced by Marco Bodini (Son of Alceste Bodini, the Techno works driver of 1970’s). It was first issued with FIA/FIVA papers in the late 1980’s, however these are not current. The car is also said to have competed in one of the early Mille Miglia retrospectives. A stunning car and sure to be a strong investment, this Giulietta Sprint represents great value for money.

Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: GAN4/54417 Year: 1967 Make: Lenham Model: Le Mans Coupe Glassfibre component manufacturer Lenham turned to full-scale body construction towards the late 1950s/early 1960s, favouring the Austin-Healey Sprite as the basis for some pretty Le Mans-style coupes at the same time as the works’ own successful endurance racing programme was exploring similar avenues. A historic race car for most of its time, starting life as a historic rally car, campaigned by Gordon Howie (old FIVA papers included not FIA). Latterly bought by Barrie “Whizzo” Williams and subsequently bought by the vendor from Barrie. A fully race prepared car looked after by CCK Historic. This is a class winning car, having won the overall Class E HRS championship. The car prepared to HSCC HRS specification (HVIF papers), but also compatible with many other series including the HRDC. Most importantly a letter on file confirms that this was the last official conversion to Le Mans Coupe spec by the Lenham Motor Company.

Alfa Romeo was one of the first manufacturers to put a powerful engine in a light-weight car for mainstream production. The Giulia weighed about 1,000 kilograms. The car was equipped with a light alloy twin overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine, similar to that of the earlier Giulietta models range. Engine capacities offered were 1.3-litre or 1.6-litre.

But the grill, the rooflines and details on the bonnet and boot made for an integrated design from bumper to bumper. Thanks to Alfa Romeo using a wind tunnel during its development, the Giulia was very aerodynamic. The Guilia 1300 Super offered here is fitted with a 5 speed manual gearbox and is finished in a classic combination of grey paintwork with a complementary red interior. This particular example has been used on a variety of European rallies and events- and is certainly presented in fine fettle.

It set the standard when it comes to obtaining freedom and adventure on the open road and at its core is the philosophy ‘home is where you park it’. The first generation of the Volkswagen T1 split windshield, informally called the Microbus, Splitscreen, or Splittie among modern fans, was produced from 8 March 1950 through to the end of the 1967 model year. There were various other models built from this time right up to the present day. These iconic vans have been used around the world for a variety of purposes but they are most renowned and loved as campervans. This is a truly amazing take on the famous “ Camper”, which looks fantastic in its present guise. The vehicle underwent its shortening by 4ft around 1990. The interior is bespoke/customised and includes electric Porsche seats, DVD player, satellite navigation and astro turf as the carpet! The VW also enjoys high power Bose speakers. A fun “ camper” which will turn heads wherever you go and would not look out of place at the beach or in town.

Description: 2004 Ferrari 360 – Only 27,800 miles from new Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: ZFFYT53C000139646 Year: 2004 Make: Ferrari Model: 360 Ferrari’s most successful model since the 308, the F355 was always going to be a tough act to follow. Its successor needed to be ground breaking and revolutionary; two words which, without doubt the 360 lived up to. Starting with a clean sheet of paper in designing the 360 Modena, the new car attracted superlatives that put even its illustrious predecessor in the shade. Just about the only item carried over from the F355 was its glorious V8 engine, enlarged from 3.5 to 3.6 litres for the 360, producing 400bhp. In every other respect the 360 was entirely new, the most striking break with Ferrari tradition being the body’s frontal treatment; gone was the omnipresent oval grille, replaced by two separate intakes set low into the front wings. A larger car than the F355, the 360 owed its radical new shape to the quest for increased downforce, generating four times as much as its predecessor yet achieving the impressively low Cd of 0.33. There was further innovation beneath the skin: a lighter, stiffer aluminium spaceframe/monocoque replacing the old tubular steel arrangement, resulting in a dry weight around 220lbs less than that of the F355. The 360’s on-the-road dynamics constituted a significant advance, its best time around Ferrari’s Fiorano test track being some three seconds faster than the F355’s. This UK delivered right-hand drive manual 360 Spider is one of just 487 of its kind produced. Complete with a full Ferrari service history and original tool kit this form of specification of 360 is widely regarded as being the most desirable of the 360 model. With just 27,800 miles on the odometer, this stunning car, presented in Nurburgring Silver with Nero Black interior and silver stitching is described as being in good to excellent condition throughout. The car recently enjoyed a cam belt change (400 miles ago), comes with a spare cam-belt and is also fitted with an adobe sound system. The private number plate is included in the sale of the car.

Description: 1953 Jaguar XK120 Drophead Coupe Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: 667149 Year: 1953 Make: Jaguar Model: XK120 Drophead It was at the 1948 London Motor Show that Jaguar virtually threw the sports car world into turmoil with its stunning XK120. Here was a car with incredible style and looks, a powerful six cylinder engine installed in an outstanding chassis and a remarkably low price – a quarter that of a V12 Ferrari with similar performance. The combination was unbeatable and without doubt the Jaguar XK120 was an absolute milestone for both Jaguar and the motor industry as a whole. At the heart of the William Lyons styled roadster was that all-new 3,442cc, twin overhead camshaft XK engine producing 160bhp via twin SU carburettors – sufficient for 126mph and 0-60mph in 10.0 seconds. To further push the performance point home, in October 1948, with an aeroscreen and aluminium undershield the only modifications, an XK120 recorded 132.6mph for the flying mile in Jabekke, Belgium, making it indisputably the fastest off-the-shelf production car in the world. The XK120 was also endowed with fine road holding, its steel body – the originally planned limited production run used alloy bodies – clothing a shortened MkV chassis employing independent torsion bar/wishbone front suspension and a semi-elliptic leaf-sprung rear axle, while brakes were all round drums. The XK120 became a massive success both on the road and the track where it scored numerous victories. Many drivers raced the XK120 including Stirling Moss, Peter Walker, Peter Whitehead, Leslie Johnson and Ian Appleyard; indeed, in XK120C/C-Type form it won Le Mans in both 1951 and 1953 and its engine was to power three more Sarthe winners and a whole host of future Jaguars. The XK120 we have for sale here is a desirable right hand drive drophead coupe. The car has had only three owners since it left the factory on 5th December 1953 and was delivered to Mr James Wood in Worthing Sussex. It comes complete with full ownership and some service history spanning 60 years. This matching numbers car comes with a Jaguar heritage certificate. A thorough restoration lasting 4 years has recently been completed including a full engine rebuild and a photographic record of the restoration process is available to the new owner. It is therefore no surprise that the vendor describes the general condition of the car to be excellent. The car is presented in the stunning combination of grey with contrasting red hide interior. One of the finest examples of this legendary Jaguar that can be found on the market today and surely an opportunity not to be missed.

Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: SCBZD0002FCH10168 Year: 1985 Make: Bentley Model: Continental It was announced in 1981 by Rolls-Royce that the production of two door fixed head coupes in both Rolls-Royce and Bentley form would cease, with the decision taken to concentrate solely on convertible motor cars. The designation “Continental” had been used for some of Bentleys finest creations in the 1950’s and 1960’s and in 1984 the term was resurrected in the form of the Bentley Continental convertible. The stylish coachwork by Mulliner/Park Ward was designed by legendary stylist John Blatchley and was assembled and finished in London A right hand drive example, this beautiful and rare Bentley Continental was delivered to its first owner, Sir Elton John, via Jack Barclay Ltd of Berkeley Square, London on 15th February 1985 with the registration number ‘B120 WYM’. It featured prominently in the video for Elton John’s hit single of that same year, ‘Nikita’, where he is seen being driven in icy conditions admiring a Russian soldier of that name. Subsequently the registration was changed to the personalised ‘B20 ELT’, which is extant today. In 2008 the Bentley was acquired by a long-time classic car enthusiast based near Venice, who used it sparingly, the odometer showing a believed-genuine total of little more than 40,000 miles. Its current owner acquired the car a few years later and commissioned a comprehensive service with bills totalling over £10,000. Having added barely any miles on the clock since then, the car is described as being in good to excellent condition throughout. The only deviation from original specification is the installation of a boot-mounted CD changer and bass unit. Finished in Tudor Red with red-piped beige leather interior and matching hood, the car comes complete with a UK V5C registration document, the original stamped service book (recording Elton John as the first owner), warranty card, etc. A fantastic opportunity to acquire a piece of musical and showbiz history in Sir Elton John’s retiring year as a musician at 70 years old. Please note the car is sold with the original grey wheel hubs and tyres as seen in the ‘Nikita’ music video.

Description: 1974 Ferrari 246 GT Dino. Original Right Hand Drive. Ferrari Classiche Certification Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: 07246 Year: 1974 Make: Ferrari Model: 246 GT Dino A compact, aluminium-bodied coupe of striking appearance, the Pininfarina-styled Dino – named after Enzo Ferrari’s late son Alfredino Ferrari and intended as the first of a separate but related marque – was powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cam V6 driving through an in-unit five-speed transaxle. The motor’s 180bhp was powerful enough to propel the lightweight, aerodynamically efficient Dino to 142mph, and while there were few complaints about the car’s performance, the high cost enforced by its aluminium construction hindered sales. A 2.4-litre version on a longer wheelbase – the 246GT – replaced the Dino 206 in late 1969. The body was now steel and the cylinder block cast-iron rather than aluminium, but the bigger engine’s increased power – 195bhp at 7,600rpm – was adequate compensation for the weight gain. A Targa-top version, the 246GTS, followed in 1972. While not quite as fast in a straight line as its larger V12-engined stable-mates, the nimble Dino was capable of showing almost anything a clean pair of heels over twisty going. Leaving the factory in July 1973, it was delivered in 1974 Mr Ian Phillip. On the 30th April 1976 the car was purchased and registered to Greencoat Motor Co of London, with some 24,000 miles. A letter from Greencoat Motor Company dated the 27th September 1978 to Mr Thomas set out the cars background to date, The car was purchased by Mr William Jepp of Surrey on the 29th June 1981 who bought the car with circa 48,000 miles. Mr Jepp used Modena Engineering, for maintenance. Mr Percival Webster of Sussex, became the next recorded keeper on the 18th May 1982. Mr Percival owned the car for eight years when solicitor Mr Rory Fordyce of Middlesex became the next registered keeper on the 25th May 1988.Mr Fordyce appears to have sent it to Joe Nash of Dino Services, a major Dino specialist at this time. It was then purchased by Mr David Edwards of South Wales for £29,000 on the 27th July 1990. Mr Edwards had Dino Services complete the restoration which is documented with invoices and colour photographs. The car was refinished in its current hue of Rosso 300. The engine, gearbox, suspension, steering and brakes were also rebuilt by Dino Services with the final invoice in February 1991. It was re-trimmed in tan with black “Daytona” inserts by Dave Strange of Send, Surrey for £3,750 being completed on the 27th March 1991. Mr Edwards used the car, returning it to Joe Nash for a 500 mile service on the 3rd January 1992 The car was entered in the 1994 Ferrari Owners Club, where it won its class – first time entrants-with 332 points. Mr Brigstock kept the car until late 1997 when it was purchased by Mr Richard Boyd of Warwickshire who entrusted Mortimer Houghton Turner to look after the car. This included new camshafts, head gaskets and a clutch (October 1997, 59,577 miles) as well as routine servicing. The car passed into the ownership of Paradise Racing Ltd on the 19th July 1999 who sold it to Mr Alecos Pappas of London later that year. Mr Pappas took the car to the dry climate of Athens, Greece, before returning it to the UK and to Paradise Garage of London. Mr Sven Lorenz of London became the next recorded keeper on the 14th March 2003, buying the car from Paradise Garage. The penultimate owner, Mr Russell Backhouse of Dorset, became the next recorded keeper on the 12th November 2007. The last owner, a gentleman from London, bought the car in April 2010 with 63,289 miles on the odometer. A total of just 498 right hand drive Dino GTs were delivered to the UK via Maranello Concessionaires Limited; rarely are they offered on the open market, it promises the driving sensation only a Ferrari can deliver.

1967 SWB Porsche 912 Outlaw

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1967 SWB Porsche 912 Outlaw Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: 462107 Year: 1967 Make: Porsche Model: SWB 912 Porsche manufactured over 32,000 912s between 1965 and 1969 as an entry level model. Nimble with sharp handling, and with a better weight distribution compared with its 6 cylinder 911 brother, the compact 2+2 weighed in at just 965kg. Power came from a 1.6l flat 4 boxer engine carried over from the 356. The 912 actually outsold the 911 by a factor of 2:1, sharing its chassis, bodywork and running gear with the 911. The 912 Porsche model has not been in the limelight, until quite recently that is. Greatly loved by Porsche enthusiasts, who have known all about the excellent qualities of the 912, the model is now much more widely appreciated and gaining a strong and loyal following. This particular 912 is quite special. It is a well restored car in terms of bodywork and paint, with new suspension, brakes and interior. It is powered by a 2.7 l, 180 bhp, type IV VW engine, built by the leading Californian engine specialist, Fat Performance. Cooled by a 911 fan shroud and rear lid mounted Evans oil coolers, the engine has stainless steel headers and exhausts, twin Webers and electronic ignition. The 901 dog-leg 5 speed gearbox has been recently rebuilt, working in harmony with a short shift changer. The interior is all new, with ‘salt and pepper’ lightweight RS carpet set, RS type seats, four point race harness, fire extinguisher, refurbished 5 instrument dials (by Hollywood, CA), new Rennsport pedal box and custom door pads and period steering wheel. There is a custom screen heater/blower giving scope for winter driving. The build commenced in 2010 by the previous owner in Georgia, USA, starting with a rust free and straight 912 shell. The build took a total of 3 years, with receipts for over $40,000 within the file. The current owner imported the car from the USA, and then refurbished the original Fuchs alloys. The car comes with a valid V5 and MOT, and an assurance from the owner that the engine cracks and pops on over run and will turn heads wherever it goes. Simply stunning.

1958 Jaguar XK150 3.4 Litre Coupe – Original Right Hand Drive

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1958 Jaguar XK150 3.4 Litre Coupe – Original Right Hand Drive Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: S824726BW Year: 1958 Make: Jaguar Model: XK150 3.4 Coupe What would turn out to be the final glorious incarnation of Jaguar’s fabulous ‘XK’ series of sports cars arrived in 1957. As its nomenclature suggests, the XK150 was a progressive development of the XK120 and XK140, retaining the same basic chassis, 3.4-litre engine and four-speed Moss transmission of its predecessors while benefiting from a new, wider body that provided increased interior space and improved visibility courtesy of a single-piece wrap-around windscreen, replacing the XK140’s divided screen. Cleverly, the new body used many XK120/140 pressings, the increased width being achieved by means of a 4”-wide central fillet. A higher front wing line and broader radiator grille were other obvious differences, but the new model’s main talking point was its Dunlop disc brakes. Fade following repeated stops from high speed had been a problem of the earlier, drum-braked cars, but now the XK had stopping power to match its prodigious straight-line speed. Introduced in the spring of 1957, the XK150 was available at first only in fixed and drophead coupé forms, the open roadster version not appearing until the following year. At 190bhp, the standard 3.4-litre engine’s maximum power output was identical to that of the XK140, so performance was little changed. Overdrive and a Borg-Warner automatic gearbox were the transmission options, the latter becoming an increasingly popular choice, while a Thornton Powr-Lok limited-slip differential was available for the XK150S. This original Right Hand Drive XK 150 Coupe on offer today was built on the 11th December 1958 delivered new through Ritches of Glasgow. Currently finished in snowberry white with a complementary black interior the car has been used on a wide variety of events and rallies over the last decade. Offered with a Nova Certificate and copy of the Jaguar Heritage Certificate this would make a wonderful car to compete in a wide variety of tours and rallies next season.

Description: 1996 Porsche 993 Cup Reg. Number: N/A Chassis Number: WPOZZZ99ZTS398078 Year: 1996 Make: Porsche Model: 993 Cup 993 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998 (model years 1995-1998 in the United States), replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches, with the 993 being not just the last air-cooled 911, but also the last of the hand built 911s. The 993 generation of the 911 is often referred to as the best and most desirable of the 911 series, not only because of its beauty, but also because its performance is very good, even by modern standards, and the 993 was “the last complete ‘modern classic’”; “the 993 was and forever will be that last fresh breath of air that Porsche gave the world; elegance and muscle all in one package.” The book “Porsche 993 – Essential Companion” refers to the 993 as the “King of Porsche,” and it is generally acknowledged as “The purists’ Holy Grail. This Porsche 993 Cup was built for the 1996/7 Porsche Supercup series as a race-going version of the RSR. Sharing very similar DNA, the 993 cup differs mainly from the RSR in the way it is tuned in order to comply with the series regulations. Driven by Bernard Simmenauer, team mate of Renaud Collard the championship front-runner in the 1997 series, the car was later sold to a Swiss gentleman.

2008 Melling Wildcat “Prototype” One family ownership from new.

Description: 2008 Melling Wildcat “Prototype” One family ownership from new. Reg. Number: Unregistered Chassis Number: TBA Year: 2008 Make: Melling Model: Wildcat Al Melling was one of the most prolific automotive engineers in his time, particularly for his involvement in designing the engines for the TVR sports cars. In 1994 TVR announced that they would shortly be producing their own in house engine, known as the AJP8, named after the first initials of the three men responsible, engine designer Al Melling, TVR design guru John Ravenscroft and Peter Wheeler himself. This engine, initially of 4.2 litres but later increased to 4.5 was and still is fitted to the Cerbera range and produces up to 420bhp and 380lbft of torque making the Cerbera one of the fastest 2+2 sports cars. From this engine the team developed the Speed Six which powers most production TVRs. Originally, Melling was commissioned to to design four Norton motorcycles: Manx, the Nirvana, the Buffalo and the Nemesis. However, Norton Motors failed and Melling was awarded all the rights of the project and possession of the tooling of the four intended bikes. Al Melling became involved in Formula One in 1989 and subsequently worked as a consultant to companies such as Lamborghini, Chevrolet, Leyton House Formula One and Benetton Formula One Team. He was involved with the development of an engine for the MasterCard Lola team for the 1997 season, but the new team folded after one race without running the engine. Some elements of the engine design were sold to Monte Carlo Automobile, and also to a company in America where that engine and the 4-valve Silk Cut Jaguar engine technology was used in design of the new Aston Martin V12. His team played a part in TWR’s V12 engine which helped Jaguar win Le Mans four years on the run, and he has always wanted his own car in the world’s most exciting road race. “The sale of the Hellcat would enable me to take a team to Le Mans but doing so has proved elusive” he said. The Melling Wildcat is a high performance roadster. The first prototype was completed in 2008 and production was scheduled in America and the UK in 2009. The Wildcat is powered by either the 4.5 litre AJP8 V8 producing 440BHP or a tuned 5.7 litre version of the Chevrolet small-block V8 producing over 450 bhp which is installed in this prototype. Its styling is similar to the TVR Griffith. Initially a proposed 150 units was supposed to be completed a year, with production starting in 2009; this did not happen. The Chevrolet engine in this car was developed by Melling himself and is purported to give 450bhp with a top speed of 180 mph and 0-60 in 3.5 seconds! This car was conceived to fill the gap left by the defunct British marques such as TVR, Marcos and others. Designed to strike a balance between high performance, low cost and adaptability for possible future legislative changes, the first running prototype car was made in only 9 months and appeared in Autocar in August 2008. All parts were designed by Al Melling including engine transmission, wheels, brakes, steering and seats except for the lights, tyres and windscreen. This particular engine was designed for General Motors to NASCA racing specification in the USA. This very exciting prototype designed and built by one of the UK’s visionaries in Motor Car design, presents itself as a great opportunity for someone to recommission it and take it on the road once again. The Wildcat has always remained with the family and is being sold by them.

1996 Porsche 993 Targa

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1996 Porsche 993 Targa Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: BBATTC69901 Year: 1977 Make: Ford Model: Escort Mk 2 It was the Escort that really put Ford on the rallying map, proving capable of winning World Championship events from 1968, when the Twin Cam model was the works’ frontline rally car, right through to 1981 when Ari Vatanen became World Rally Champion driving an Escort RS. In 1970 the Ford Twin Cam engine was replaced by a Cosworth BDA 16-valve unit to create the definitive Escort rally car – the RS1600 – though the engine was, in fact, homologated at 1,601cc to enable future enlargement up to the 2-litre class capacity limit. The first full 2.0-litre engines were homologated in 1972 and in works trim produced 235-240bhp. In this form the Escort RS1600 proved good enough to win the RAC Rally three times on the trot between 1972 and 1974, as well as a host of other World Championship events. There was also a closely related ‘spin off’ variant: the overhead-valve Kent-engined Mexico, which was intended to cater for those that wanted the RS1600’s style but had no need for its stupendous performance. When the Escort was re-launched as the ‘MkII’ for 1975, the rally car adopted the new-look bodyshell while retaining virtually the same running gear and was renamed ‘RS1800’, the latter change reflecting the capacity increase to 1,800cc. Building on the RS1600’s success, the RS1800 was further developed and in 2.0-litre form enjoyed an even more successful career than its forebear, remaining competitive well into the 1980s. The RS1800 made its winning debut as a works Group 2 car on the Granite Rally in April 1975, victory going to Roger Clark, who followed up by winning the Welsh International Rally. In that year’s Lombard-RAC Rally, Timo Makinen brought his RS1800 home ahead of the field to score the car’s first major international success. It would be the first of five consecutive Lombard-RAC victories for the RS1800 and its Escort RS Group 4 derivative. In 1979 the Escort brought Ford its first World Rally Championship for Makes while works driver Björn Waldegård became the first official World Rally Champion. After the works team withdrew from international rallying at the end of the 1979 season, the Escort baton was passed to the Rothmans-sponsored team run by David Sutton, which enjoyed strong links with the Boreham factory. In 1981 the Rothmans team made history when its driver Ari Vatanen became the first, and so far only, non-works World Rally Champion. This car was first used by the Ford works team on The San Remo Rally in 1977 with Bjorn Waldegard driving and finishing 5th overall. The car appeared in several guises, with different drivers, in the period from 1977 – Corsica / Jean Pierre Nicolas and 1978, Russell Brookes in Andrews Heat for Hire livery. In 1979 it was one of the two wide bodied escorts that were built specifically for the Monte Carlo Rally of that year. Again Bjorn Waldegard was the driver and finished 2nd overall on what was a controversial event. The sister car ( VHK 47S ), driven by Hannu Mikkola, finished 5th overall. After the 1979 Monte Carlo Rally both cars spent a period of time outside of the works facility at Boreham until in late 79 they were re commissioned with carburetors to the engines and sold by Ford to Raymond Rue the head of the Publimmo Corporation and exported to Monaco. After being sold by Ford the cars were registered 3256 and 1493 they could be seen on varying events in Europe, again driven by a variety of drivers. Both Ari Vatanen and Bjorn Waldegard driving the two on the Monte Carlo rally ( Vatanen 1980 ) ( Waldegard 1981 ) as private entrants for the Publimmo Corporation. After running several high profile drivers in a variety of manufacturer cars the Publimmo Corporation went bankrupt. The head of the organisation had a soft spot for the Monte Escorts and it is

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1978 Ford Escort RS2000 Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: CXATUR63333 Year: 1978 Make: Ford Model: Escort RS2000 The Escort was the car that proved Ford’s rallying pedigree. Escorts in various forms won World Championship events between 1968 and 1981 with Ari Vatanen becoming World Rally Champion driving an Escort RS in 1981. Ford allowed their customers to have a taste of their rally success with models such as the RS1600 and Mexico which were developed at Ford’s Advanced Vehicles Operations plant. These models had their weaknesses, with the Mexico deemed as too slow and the RS1600 although quick was too costly to manufacture and maintain. The answer to these shortcomings was the RS2000 launched in 1976 which was powered by the 2.0 litre single-overhead camshaft engine. It was very well received being both fast and easy to maintain. The RS2000 on sale here was originally registered in South Africa and imported to the UK in 2014. All documents for the car are present and correct and the car is in very original condition with original engine and Webber carburettors. The front seats have been recovered in period fabric and the car has benefitted from numerous new parts in 2014 and 2015 with receipts available. Originating from a sunny climate, this has allowed the bodywork to stay rust free and overall the vendor describes the condition of the car to be excellent. With only 63,000 showing on the clock, a good history file and finished in the classic colour combination of White with Black cloth interior, this is the perfect opportunity to own an iconic Escort RS.

Description: 1973 Porsche 911 2.4 S Targa Reg. Number: French Registered Chassis Number: 9113310416 Year: 1973 Make: Porsche Model: 911 2.4 S Targa Porsche’s long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter’s rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356’s VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche’s single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 liters and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. The first of countless upgrades came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, the increased urge raising top speed by 10mph to 135mph. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911’s handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements – to 2.2 liters. The S’s power output then was 180bhp, increasing to 190bhp with the introduction of the 2.4-liter engine for 1972. Tenacious adhesion, responsive steering, very good flexibility, superb brakes, meticulous finish and a solid, unburst able feel were just some of the virtues praised by Motor magazine in its test of a Porsche 911 in 1973. This wonderful blue 2.4S Targa was delivered in January 1973, and today is presented with both its matching numbers engine and in its original colour. The car was delivered new to Germany, and so is a desirable European model. It has been restored in the 1990 and is still in wonderful order- reported to drive and break well. Both door shuts and chrome work are reported to be in excellent condition. The interior is fitted with its original BlauPunkt radio and is finished in Black- it is again in very good order. Offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity Offered with its Carte Grise and Control Techniques.

Description: 1994 Fiat 16V Turbo “Unregistered” Only 825 miles from new. Ex Pininfarina Museum. Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: ZFA175000P0014756 Year: 1994 Make: Fiat Model: 16V Turbo The Fiat Coupé (type 175, officially titled the Coupé Fiat) was a coupé produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat between 1993 and 2000. The car was introduced at Brussels Motor Show in 1993. It is most remembered for its distinctive, angular design, with unique scalloped side panels. The body was designed by Chris Bangle from Centro Stile Fiat, while the interior was designed by Pininfarina. The exterior design would foreshadow much of late 1990s and early 2000s car design, acting as a precedent to both Bangle’s somewhat notorious work at BMW, as well as futuristic angular designs by other marques, such as Ford and Renault. Both the turbocharged 16v/4cylinder and 20v/5cylinder versions were equipped with a very efficient Viscodrive limited-slip differential to counter the understeer that plagues most powerful front wheel drive cars. Additionally, the coupe featured independent suspension all round: at the front MacPherson struts and lower wishbones anchored to an auxiliary crossbeam, offset coil springs and anti-roll bar; at the rear, trailing arms mounted on an auxiliary subframe, coil springs and an anti-roll bar. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a Fiat Coupe 16V Turbo – New / unregistered, as featured in Auto Italia Magazine. This particular Fiat Coupe is unique being one of 15 pre- production models built by Pininfarina as proof of manufacture. It was built for the RHD drive markets and used to test dealer feedback on the final trim and interior details, as such it has some individually quirky differences to the volume UK RHD drive cars. These include the gear lever, door rubbers, the carpet is made up of sections, it has a sunroof, single key and reads 825 miles. The miles where all completed by Pininfarina to prove the body construction and running gear, but the car was not road registered. Once the Fiat Coupe was put into production this car became part of the Pininfarina collection so it has not suffered from the elements outside and as such the paint is original and interior unmarked. Also included is a brand new / unused dealer set of mats. In 2012 Pininfarina went bankrupt and the assets of the company where frozen. This car was bought by a private individual in Italy and has now only appeared for sale within the UK. The Nova duties are paid but the car remains unregistered, Fiat have supplied the Certificate of Conformance and an official letter detailing the chassis number.

Description: 2000 Porsche 996 GT3-R Reg. Number: N/A Chassis Number: WPOZZZ99ZYS692090 Year: 2000 Make: Porsche Model: 996 GT3-R In 1998 Porsche finally put the air-cooled flat-6 cylinder engine to rest. The last of the air-cooled 911s (993) left Weissach, and the assembly lines in Stuttgart. The 996 was the new 911, and its chassis was the GT car for the future of Porsche Motorsport. Every component of the 996 was new; chassis, bodywork, gearbox, engine, suspension, engine management, and cooling system. At the time of launch, the new GT3 R was made to the current ACO rules for the GT category in 1999. The 3.6 litre six cylinder engine develops in excess of 400 bhp and drives through a GT2 six-speed gearbox equipped with external cooling, pressurized lubrication, and a limited slip differential. The carbon fibre bodywork, combining light-weight and strength, makes maximum use of current aerodynamic principles to provide excellent grip with minimum drag. The chassis of the 911 GT3 R came completely equipped with the necessary components to comply with current sanctioning body regulations. Fitted, from the factory, with a fuel cell, externally adjustable shock absorbers, spherical bearings at suspension mounting points, electric power steering, and 380 mm, four pistons/caliper brakes the car was in many respects unbeatable on the track, winning its class in every arena it entered. Manufactured in 2000, chassis WPOZZZ99ZYS692090 was used in two Belcar events for Team M1 Cub-Renstal Excelsion before arriving in Le Mans of June that year to be driven by Philippe Verellen, Rudi Penders and Kurt Dujardyn. Between 2001 and 2003 the car remained in RTM Belcar control before changing hands to S&P Racing Belcar (run by FG Motorsport Services). After a rebuild in 2007 for the Dunlop Maxx Endurance series the car was rented to McDonalds Racing for the 2008 and 2009 series. In 2010 McDonalds Racing bought the car adjusting the body to a 997 shape but all 996 body parts were retained with the car. The engine is now a 3.9 2004 RSR engine which produces 440hp and 442nm of torque and having been mated to a 2002 RS manual 6-speed gearbox , now has a sequential gearbox fitted at a cost of over €30,000. One of the few cars with the NG-T Le Mans specification with all Porsche attestations present, this is a special car and having just had a full body restoration in 2016 bringing it back to its original 996 Le Mans specification at a cost of €20,000 it is in immaculate condition. Please note that all spare parts will be delivered to new owner once sold.

Under a licensing agreement in 1998 with De Tomaso and after purchasing a state of the art factory in Modena, the spiritual home of sports car building in Italy, Qvale began production of the Mangusta in 1999. The car’s conception benefited from an exotic blend from the cream of the world’s sports car builders. The body was designed by Marcello Gandini and the chassis designed by F1 designer, Enrique Scalabroni. The end result is something of a marvel. Powered by a Ford GT Cobra V8 4.6 litre ‘ Hi-Po’ engine producing some 320 bhp and through a manual 5 speed gearbox the car can reach a top speed of 160mph and 0-60mph in approximately 5 seconds. Another unique feature is the three position roof system lets you convert the Mangusta from a coupe to a Targa to a full convertible to suit all weather conditions. This exquisite one owner from new example is number 22 of just 272 total cars built and is believed to be the only GTR version which features the very striking paint work, finished in metallic navy blue with Shelby style white stripes. Described to be in excellent condition the car has a sumptuous tan leather interior which also features air conditioning, electric windows and seats and an Alpine stereo system. This one owner car has only 5,000 km showing and is currently German registered, supplied with a current TUV and European certificate of conformity.

Description: 1976 Jaguar XJ6 4.2 – Litre Reg. Number: Spanish Registered Chassis Number: 2T64270BW Year: 1976 Make: Jaguar Model: XJ6 4.2 Litre Launched to universal acclaim in 1968, the XJ6 refined concepts embodied by previous Jaguar saloons to create a car rivalling the best offered by Mercedes-Benz. The six-cylinder XK engine was available in either 2.8- or 4.2-litre capacities initially, the latter capable of propelling the luxuriously appointed XJ6 to a top speed of 120mph-plus, while there was a choice of either four-speed manual (usually with overdrive) or three-speed automatic transmission. In 1975 the range was extended by the introduction of two-door XJ6C and XJ12C coupés, which were built on the shorter of the two available wheelbase lengths. The prohibitive expense of getting its two-door pillar-less bodyshell to meet United States safety regulations meant that the coupé version never went on sale in the USA; consequently the model is one of the rarest of the XJ family, being produced between 1975 and 1977 only, and is becoming increasingly sought after by Jaguar collectors. With only one previous owner and 85,000 km from new, this wonderful green over green XJ is supplied with all books, tools and a folder of bills and receipts. Described as being in excellent condition throughout yet highly original – down to the original radio this example has been garaged its entire life, and serviced at the current families business since 1979.

1960 Facel Vega HK500

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1960 Facel Vega HK500 Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: HK1 BP5 Year: 1960 Make: Facel Vega Model: HK500 The advertising slogan for the Facel Vega HK500 put it in a nutshell: “For the Few Who Own the Finest”. The few included Pablo Picasso, Ringo Starr, Tony Curtis, Ava Gardner, Joan Fontaine and Maurice Trintignant. Stirling Moss spurned air travel in favour of driving his HK500 from race to race and Albert Camus famously met his end in one, crashing at 112mph while returning from a book launch with his publisher at the wheel. Costing more than a Mercedes Gullwing and three times as rare, the HK500 exuded opulent exclusivity from every stunningly handsome pore. The brainchild of French industrialist and designer Jean Daninos, the Facel Vega marque was born in 1954 in a bid to keep Paris on the map as a centre of automotive excellence at a time when great French marques like Delahaye, Delage, Talbot Lago and Panhard were being driven to the wall by punitive government taxes on high performance vehicles. Aimed squarely at the export market and launched in 1958, the HK500 was the most powerful Facel yet, initially fitted with a 5.9-litre Chrysler V8 that was soon supplanted by an even bigger 6.3-litre unit that pumped out a colossal 360bhp and 425 lbs-ft of torque. Tested by Motor magazine, the car topped out at 145mph, hit 60mph in 8.4 seconds and ran the quarter mile in 16.3 seconds. Styled by Daninos, engineered by Jacques Brasseur and with a chassis developed by Lance Macklin of HWM racing fame, the HK500 went as well as it looked with a fit and finish that was second to none. Rust-resistant stainless steel was used for brightwork, while a lavish passenger cabin was trimmed in the finest leathers with a fabulous aircraft-like dashboard that looked like wood but was in fact painted stainless steel. Only 490 examples were made before production was phased out in 1961 to make way for the Facel II. This particular car is especially rare, being one of just 105 HK500s that were factory made in RHD. An automatic model with power steering, Dunlop disc brakes, 3.31 rear axle, a black leather interior with red piping and Peony Red paintwork. One of the few UK Facels never to have changed its registration number, 891 AYF was first registered on 26th July 1960 and was sold new by Jack Barclay to T&A Collins Ltd of Dudley, thought to be shoe manufacturers with factories in Northampton. In late 1964 the car was sold to EE Jones of Birmingham and then passed through several other owners (including one who ran it at Santa Pod raceway where it clocked a 15 second quarter mile, outclassing a manual HK500) until it was acquired by the previous vendor in 1980.

Description: 2009 Ford TSC GT40 Evocation by Tornado Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: AJMTSC1F363G67499 Year: 2009 Make: Ford Model: GT40 Evocation The purposeful mid-engine sports coupe is the finest Anglo-American supercar of the last century, with four straight victories at the Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race between 1966 and ’69. In 1966 alone, it finished 1-2-3 against Ferrari, in one of the most memorable photo finishes in the race’s distinguished history, cementing the car’s place in motorsports history and on the postered walls of teenaged bedrooms the world over. The Unique Ford GT40 evocation on offer today, is a complete one off- bespoke GT40 Lightweight specification car built in tribute to the Jacky Ickx GT40. Bodywork is the full Gulf wide arch kit with glass engine cover and rear window. The car has been professionally finished in the iconic Gulf livery with all sponsors airbrushed. The interior has been fitted with period replica seats, steering wheel, dash and gauges. A GPS speedo has been used for accuracy and a fire extinguisher system for safety. Purchased in 2012 this car had been built by a very high standard by Jeff Morris, a professor of engineering and Drag Car specialist. The remainder of the work was completed by Loaded Gunn Racing and the paintwork was done by BLD Group. Testament to the quality and attention to detail, the chassis has been powdercoated black and waxoyled and suspension arms, linkages and rollbars are all nickel-plated. Its suspension is fully adjustable. The engine is a ford 302 5.7ltr with 8 stack Procomp fuel injection, JE pistons, H section forged conrods, road race cam, alloy heads and produces an impressive 380bhp. The exhaust is a 1.3/4” crossover with ceramic coating.

Brakes are by Wilwood and has 6 piston front callipers and 4 piston rears with integrated cable handbrake. Wheels are by Image and are BRM style 15” 8J Front and 12J Rears and functioning knock on spinners. The vendor describes the car to be one of the highest quality replicas on the market and that attention to detail can be seen everywhere and in little things such as chassis plate, bonnet catches and slam panel.

1948 Bentley Mk VI in the style of 4 ½ Litre Tourer

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1948 Bentley Mk VI in the style of 4 ½ Litre Tourer Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: B243CD Year: 1948 Make: Bentley Model: Mk VI W O Bentley proudly debuted the new 3-litre car bearing his name on Stand 126 at the 1919 Olympia Motor Exhibition, the prototype engine having fired up for the first time just a few weeks earlier. In only mildly developed form, this was the model which was to become a legend in motor racing history and which, with its leather-strapped bonnet, classical radiator design and British Racing Green livery has become the archetypal vintage sports car. Early success in the 1922 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, when Bentleys finished second, fourth and fifth to take the Team Prize, led to the introduction of the TT Replica (later known as the Speed Model). However, by the middle of the decade the 3-Litre’s competitiveness was on the wane and this, together with the fact that too many customers had been tempted to fit unsuitably heavy coachwork to the excellent 3-Litre chassis rather than accept the expense and complexity of Bentley’s 6 1/2 litre ‘Silent Six’, led to the introduction of the ‘4 1/2’. The new 4 1/2 Litre model effectively employed the chassis, transmission and brakes of the 3-Litre, combined with an engine that was in essence two-thirds of the six-cylinder 6 1/2 litre unit. Thus the new four-cylinder motor retained the six’s 100x140mm bore/stroke and Bentley’s familiar four-valves-per-cylinder fixed-’head architecture, but reverted to the front-end vertical camshaft drive of the 3-Litre. Bentley Motors lost no time in race-proving its new car. It is believed that the first prototype engine went into the 3-Litre chassis of the 1927 Le Mans practice car. Subsequently this same engine was fitted to the first production 4½-Litre chassis for that year’s Grand Prix d’Endurance at the Sarthe circuit. The original 4 1/2 Litre car, nicknamed by the team ‘Old Mother Gun’ and driven by Frank Clement and Leslie Callingham, promptly set the fastest race lap of 73.41mph before being eliminated in the infamous ‘White House Crash’ multiple pile-up. The 4 1/2 Litre was produced for four years, all but nine of the 665 cars made being built on the 3-Litre’s ‘Long Standard’, 10’ 10”-wheelbase chassis. Purchasers of the 4 1/2 Litre model were, in common with those of all vintage-period Bentleys, free to specify their preferences from a very considerable range of mechanical and electrical equipment, in addition to whatever body style and coachbuilder might be required. This wonderful Mk VI special is built in the style of a 4/12 Litre Tourer with a hand fabricated body in aluminium by Paul Forty , who educated himself whilst working for the Legendary Coachbuilder Bob Peterson. The result as you can imagine is fantastic and the car is resplendent in British Racing Green coachwork over green upholstery. The engine is from a later 6.75 litre V8 Bentley and is mated to the MK VI original 4 speed gearbox and also benefits from having an overdrive unit for relaxed cruising. Indeed during the vendor’s ownership he has travelled from London to the Midlands on many occasions- the car performing faultlessly. The front brakes have been upgraded to Wilwood discs but are hidden from view in aluminium cast drums. Serviced regularly and starting on the button, this wonderful MK VI is described as reliable and comfortable to drive, possessing plenty of power and torque for modern traffic. Its automotive styling is a guaranteed centre of attention at any of the most prestigious motoring events.

1983 Talbot Samba Group B

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1983 Talbot Samba Group B Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: 15570 Year: 1983 Make: Talbot Model: Samba Group B The Talbot Samba was a supermini car manufactured by the PSA Group in the former Simca factory in Poissy, France, and marketed under the short-lived modern-day Talbot brand. Based on the Peugeot 104, it was the only Talbot not inherited from Chrysler Europe, engineered by PSA alone. It was also the last new Talbot to be launched, and the last in production. Its demise in 1986 was effectively the end of the Talbot brand for passenger cars. Launched initially as a three-door hatchback, it was also for some time the only supermini available in a factory-ordered cabriolet body style, and the most economical car in Europe Following the rallying successes of the Simca 1000 and the Talbot Sunbeam, PSA launched the Samba Rallye. Fitted with the 1219 cc XW version of the X engine, delivering 66 kilowatt (90 PS), it came in either white or red, with a hood scoop and side stripes. In 1985, a version with the 1360 cc unit producing 59 kilowatt (80 PS) was launched, without the stripes. A special rallye-only Group B model, officially called the Peugeot Talbot Sport Samba Rallye preceded the later Peugeot 205 T16, with a 1285 cc, 96 kilowatt engine. This Samba Group B was commissioned by Drew Wylie and built by renowned experts Castelos Motorsport in Group B specification, including the engine, gearbox, limited slip differential , competition wiring loom , hydraulic hand brake and modern breaks and hubs. Offered with UK V5 registration and finished in it’s iconic livery, this certainly is a rare beast and could prove to offer a great deal of entertainment to its lucky new owner.

1991 Porsche 964 Cabriolet

Description: 1991 Porsche 964 Cabriolet Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: WPOZZZ96ZMS450974 Year: 1991 Make: Porsche Model: 964 Cabriolet The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive as options. A new naturally aspirated engine called the M64 was used for 964 models, with a flat-6 displacement of 3.6 litres. Porsche substantially revised the suspension, replacing the rear torsion bars with coil springs and shock absorbers. Power steering and ABS brakes were added to the 911 for the first time; both were standard. The exterior bumpers and fog lamps became flush into the car, allowing for better aerodynamics. A new electric rear spoiler raised at speeds above 50 mph and lowered down flush with the rear engine lid at lower speeds or at rest. A new automatic climate control system provided superior heating and cooling. Lagoon Blue is a great colour for this 1993 model Carrera 2 Cabriolet, set off by the navy leather interior trim. Pleasingly, this car was specified with rear wheel drive from new and the strong 3.6 litre flat-six engine makes for a smooth yet exciting drive. Coming from a well-known Porsche collection, this 964 Cabriolet is surely a sound investment.

1971 Range Rover Suffix A

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1971 Range Rover Suffix A Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: 35500797A Year: 1971 Make: Range Rover Model: Suffix A In late 1963 Rover’s director and general manager, A.B. Smith, asked Bernard Jackman to come and talk about ‘breaks’. Wondering slightly about the spelling, Jackman drove to Solihull, and was offered the job of Rover production director. “From that moment on, I’ve been Rover hook, line and sinker. At least until the last two years when I’ve had to get used to being Rover-Triumph and not just Rover.” He then went on to become Managing Director. Bernard Jackman was responsible for putting the V8 engine into production.“It was one of the smoothest jobs we ever had, for it was a brilliantly designed engine from a manufacturing point of view. Its assembly costs are much less than for the four cylinder engine, and its material costs are not very much more.” The Range Rover Classic is a 4×4 luxury SUV built by British car maker Land Rover from 1970 to 1996. It was available only in a 2-door body style until 1981, after which a 4 door became available. It was the first generation of vehicles produced under the Range Rover name. For most of its history it was known simply as the “Range Rover”; Land Rover coined the term “Range Rover Classic” for the brief period the model was built alongside its P38A successor, and applied the name retroactively to all first-generation Range Rovers. This model was delivered new the Goodwood Estate in October 1974 and is presented in red with beige interior. It comes with a full ownership history, certificate of factory record and has done 63,000 miles from new. The car has been waxoiled and serviced and comes with its owners handbook, dealer brochure, tools and jack. This is a wonderful useable example of this iconic British 4X4 which created a storm back in the early 1970s when first produced. Arguably, these were the greatest ever produced and favoured among many farmers who doubled their use not only on the farm but as a vehicle to ferry passengers in style and comfort to any evening event or Royal Ascot!

1966 Mini Cooper S BMC Competition Department 1 owner for over 30 years

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1966 Mini Cooper S BMC Competition Department 1 owner for over 30 years Reg. Number: UK Registered Chassis Number: 850926 Year: 1966 Make: Mini Model: Cooper S Launched in March 1963, the 1,071cc Mini Cooper S was the ultimate Mini, at its heart a much higher specification engine than the plain Cooper’s unit, and slightly larger but much more efficient front disc brakes. The increased potential of the S was quickly demonstrated by Rauno Aaltonen’s outright win on the 1963 Alpine Rally, followed by Paddy Hopkirk’s 1st place overall on the Monte Carlo, 3rd on the Tour de France and 4th on the RAC. Manufactured in 1966, 850926 has the distinction of being a Works Mini Cooper S and campaigned from 1966 through to 1968 in some of the greatest rallies piloted by two of the greatest names in Rallying history. In 1966, 850926 first Works outing was at the 27th Alpine Rally in early September with Timo Makinen at the wheel and Paul Easter carrying out co-driver duties but due to head gasket issues it was forced into an early retirement. Rally legend Paddy Hopkirk took the wheel for the RAC rally on the 19th November 1966. No fewer than seven works Mini’s lined up for the start and was the biggest entry for the Abingdon team. Hopkirk was unlucky – he was the leading British driver until he overshot a junction on a stage, reversed back and the transmission broke ending his rally. The following year Timo Makinen piloted the car at the Swedish rally but was forced to drop out on only the second special stage with brake trouble. In 1968 Hopkirk was again behind the wheel for the Circuit of Ireland, Hopkirk set very quick times from the start but was suffering with overheating problems, although not serious he was to retire with a broken differential on the Lough Eske stage. Later in the year, the car was fitted with an auxiliary radiator to help with the overheating and with Lars Ytterbring who put in a fine performance on the Scottish rally by finishing runner up to Roger Clarks Escort. This was the last time the car was used in anger but was subsequently put to good use as a publicity car with Paddy Hopkirk promoting the use of seatbelt safety with the then Minister of Transport Barbara Castle. After the car’s time in the limelight it was sold to Mr R Lawrence in late1968 followed by the ownership of Mr Simon and subsequently in 1978 it was exported to Switzerland into the ownership of Mr Fisher before passing into the current owner’s hands that has had the privilege of owning the car for more than 30 years. During this time the car featured in the August 1984 German magazine ADAC Motorwelt with German rally legend Walter Rohrl driving the Cooper S and comparing it to an Alpine A110 and an Audi Quattro. A copy of Mini by Rob Golding is supplied with the car and features 850926on page 102 which is signed by Rohrl after the magazine photo shoot. 850926 was invited to the 1984 Mini Cooper Club of Great Britain International Cooper day with 850926 getting a particular mention in the August edition of Classic and Sportscar as it came all the way from Switzerland.

2003 Porsche 996 GT3 Cup Rally

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 2003 Porsche 996 GT3 Cup Rally Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: WPOZZZ96235698137 Year: 2003 Make: Porsche Model: 996 GT3 Cup Rally The motorsport department of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, developed a new aerodynamic kit for the 2001-specification of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. Modifications bring the engine closer to the road version thus ensuring less running costs as well as better equality of chances. Thanks to these comprehensive changes the near-standard racing car achieves faster lap times, offers further improved handling and easier service. The most obvious feature of the new GT3 Cup was its large fixed rear wing which more than doubles downforce at the rear axle. A modified front section ensured perfect aerodynamic balance. Tests proved faster lap times and at the same time, tyre wear was reduced due to less skidding. Heat dissipation from the engine, gearbox and brakes was significantly improved. The front section channeled the hot air from the enlarged central radiator upwards and this modification ensures that hot air no longer flows to the engine. A gearbox cowling, adopted from the 911 Turbo, improved the cooling. Similarly to the other 996 GT3 Rally on offer, this car started life in the form of a conventional 996 GT3. After chassis strengthening as well as the adoption of a Carrera 2 front end to accommodate the spare wheel, the underside of the chassis was adapted to make the aluminium protection plate fit. The car enjoyed a comprehensive restoration in 2013 with changed gaskets, new seals and rubbers; as well as a new water pump and new fans mounted onto the radiators. The exhaust is from a final evolution 996 and a new RS Clutch and flywheel were adopted. The gearbox was overhauled by R-Power, shortening the gears, making the car far more effective on the rally stages. A fast and beautiful sounding car, there is a lot of fun to be had in this car and all for a very reasonable price.
