1963 Citroen 2CV One registered owner from new

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1963 Citroen 2CV One registered owner from new Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 1302913 Year: 1963 Make: Citroen Model: 2CV The Citroën 2CV or ‘deux chevaux’ (two horsepower) was an economy car produced by the French car maker Citroën from 1948-1990. It was technologically advanced and innovative but with uncompromisingly utilitarian and unconventional looks. Its deceptively simple Bauhaus inspired bodywork belied the sheer quality of its underlying engineering. It was designed to move the French peasantry on from horses and carts and is considered one of Citroën’s most iconic cars. In 1953, ‘Autocar’ in a technical review of the car, wrote of, “…the extraordinary ingenuity of this design, which is undoubtedly the most original since the Model T Ford”. It was described by CAR magazine journalist and author L. Setright as “the most intelligent application of minimalism ever to succeed as a car.” It was designed for low cost, simplicity of use, versatility, reliability, and off-road driving. For this it had a light, easily serviceable engine, extremely soft, long travel suspension (with adjustable ride height), high ground clearance and for oversized loads, a car-wide canvas sunroof. This fantastically original 2CV is presented in unrestored condition, having had only one private owner from new, before spending 20 years in a private collection. The 2CV has never been restored, rather preserved, with the brakes having been recently reconditioned. These 2CVs are great fun, and are a wonderfully usable classic icon.

Description: 1980 Fiat 124 Spider Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: ZFA124CS000178104 Year: 1980 Make: Fiat Model: 124 Spider The Fiat 124 Sport Spider is a monocoque, front-engine, rear drive 2+2 convertible sports car manufactured by Fiat Automobiles for model years 1966-1980. Designed and manufactured by Italian carrozzeria Pininfarina, the 124 Spider debuted at the November 1966 Turin Auto Show. The 124 Spider was sold in Europe and the U.S. from its introduction until the 1975 model year when it was modified to comply with new U.S. regulations and no European version was produced. Sales in Europe resumed when Pininfarina took over production in 1983 under the name Pininfarina Europa Spider. The body of the car was designed and marketed by Pininfarina with styling by Tom Tjaarda. In 1972, a sports version of the spider debuted. This was required for a type-approval of its rally version, which earned some remarkable success. The four-cylinder engine used in the spider and coupé is a double overhead cam, aluminum crossflow head version of the sedan’s pushrod unit. It started in 1966 with a capacity of 1438 cc progressively increasing to 1608 cc in 1970 and finally 1,995 cc in 1979. This lovely example of this pretty little Italian sports car is presented in newly painted red with beige leather interior which has also recently been renewed. The car is powered by a lively 2 litre which is fun on country roads but is also lazy enough on long tours. These cars are iconic to the Italian marque and represent everything that is fun about open top sports car motoring.

1993 Porsche 928 GTS

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1993 Porsche 928 GTS Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: WPOZZZ92ZPS800503 Year: 1993 Make: Porsche Model: 928 GTS The Porsche 928 is a luxury GT car produced by Porsche AG of Germany from 1978 to 1995. Originally intended to replace the company's well-known and famed 911, the 928 combined the power, poise, and handling of a sports car with the refinement, comfort, and equipment of a luxury sedan to create what some Porsche executives thought would be a vehicle with wider appeal than the compact, quirky and sometimes difficult 911. The 928 featured a large, front-mounted and water-cooled V8 engine driving the rear wheels. Originally displacing 4.5 L and featuring a single overhead camshaft design, it produced 219 hp for the North American market and 237 hp (176 kW/240 PS) in other markets. The 928 GTS came for sale in late 1991 as a 1992 model in Europe and in spring of 1992 as an early 1993 model in North America. Changed bodywork, larger front brakes and a new, more powerful 5.4 L, 350 PS engine were the big advertised changes; what Porsche wasn't advertising was the price. Loaded GTS models could eclipse US$100,000 in 1995, making them among the most expensive cars on the road at the time. This immaculate Porsche 928 GTS is one of the extremely rare examples with the 5 - speed manual gearbox, of which only 667 were produced. Having been meticulously looked after by only 2 collector owners in all its life, the car shows a fully stamped service booklet from mileage 15802 kms to the warranted mileage of now 76,500 kms. The cars first owner, an Italian pharmacist, purchased this superb 928 GTS with 9000 kms directly from Porsche Centre Napoli and since 1996 all invoices from the first owner are available in the cars file. Since his purchase in 2012 the now vendor and second owner invested a further circa €20,000 in the car, namely a first class respray in 2012/2013 in its original blue metallic at circa € 10.000. Invoices are available on file as well. The 928 GTS comes with power steering, electric sunroof, radio / cassette ( Blaupunkt Symphony ), central locking, electric mirrors, heat protecting windows, 5 - speed gearbox, electric side screens, sport seats in leather, airbags, alarm system, catalyst converter, cruise control and much more. The car comes with a TUV to 2017.

1983 BMW 320i Baur Cabriolet

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1983 BMW 320i Baur Cabriolet Reg. Number: Dutch Registered Chassis Number: WBAAA310XD9129752 Year: 1983 Make: BMW Model: 320i Despite the introduction of the official E30 Cabriolet in 1987, BMW’s long history with Baur meant that the TC2 conversion was still available as an option for Saloon models for the entirety of production, finishing in 1991. While never as popular as convertibles, it is still possible to find Baur versions of the entire E30 model range, from the 316 to the 318iS, and even an M3 version was constructed. As a respectable coachbuilder, Baur put a lot of time and effort into the design of the TC2. The aim was to build more than just a cabriolet; their roof design would also offer targa- and landau-style open tops as well. This meant that the soft fabric roof would be split into two parts, with the division across the B-pillars. These two parts could then be individually removed. In that way, removing the forward section offered the same roof as Porsche, who owned the copyright to the “targa” name, while removing just the rear section offered a landau rear opening. Removing both sections converted the car to a full cabriolet. To do this, it was necessary to stiffen the shell so that neither safety nor performance would be compromised once the roof was removed. Baur therefore designed a “cage”, a reinforced frame that runs under the roof gutters and C-pillars, connected across the boot and roof by lateral bars to form a roll-bar. Two holes are drilled in the frame of the side windows to locate the frame, and then the whole construction is welded to the existing E30 structure. This early Baur conversion, based on the six cylinder 320i, was first registered in the summer of 1983, and has clearly been cared for extremely well during its life. Finished in a supremely stylish combination of dark blue with a matching blue velour cloth interior, the car is offered with a full service history, which includes the relevant books. These Baur cabriolets offer high levels of refinement and practically, with the wind-in-the-hair fun of a full convertible – an excellent example and really the best of both worlds.

1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Body-Off Restoration - Invoices Totalling €125,000

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Body-Off Restoration - Invoices Totalling €125,000 Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 11304412015555 Year: 1970 Make: Mercedes-Benz Model: 280SL In March 1963 the new generation of SL sports cars was launched with the debut of the 230 SL at the Geneva Show. This revolutionary new model replaced the now ageing 190 and 300 SL models, and cutting-edge Mercedes engineering together with elegance and practicality, made the ‘pagoda top’ SL one of the most distinctive and attractive cars of its era. In closed form it offered handsome proportions and coupé-like comfort, while the easy removal of the hard-top turned it into an open top sports car for the summer months. During the 1960s Mercedes-Benz refined and updated the SL by also fitting the 250 engine, and finally the 280. As today, Mercedes-Benz cars were never cheap but superb build quality and sophisticated styling made the 280 SL a very popular choice with the rich and famous, as well as the merely well-heeled. Imported from the dry States of America, this 280SL has been subject to a meticulous body off restoration with costs totalling €125,000 EUR. It was noted by the owner that prior to the restoration, the car showed no signs of any previous accidents or rust and that the bodywork was in an excellent unrestored state. No panels had to be replaced or repaired. With numerous and detailed photographs depicting the restoration in great detail, we are informed that the car is now found in excellent condition throughout. Finished in one of the most desirable colour combinations of silver grey metallic with contrasting black leather interior, this is truly a remarkable example of the extremely stylish and ever appreciating classics.

1975 Triumph TR6 – 2 owners from new

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1975 Triumph TR6 – 2 owners from new Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: CF 38573 U Year: 1975 Make: Triumph Model: TR6 The Triumph TR6 was the best-selling Triumph in history when production ended in 1976, but was later surpassed by the TR7. More than 94,000 TR6s were built, ninety per cent of them to US specification. The TR6 was a refined sports car. It featured pile carpets on floors and boot (trunk), plush-looking bucket seats, a lovely wooden dashboard and a full complement of instrumentation. In the US, it featured the six-cylinder engine that was carried over from the TR250, while the UK version had a more powerful fuel-injected engine from the TR5 that included the Lucas mechanical fuel injection system. It traces its lineage back to the four-cylinder Triumphs: TR4, TR4A, TR3/TR3A and TR2. This stylish six-cylinder sports car is regarded by some as the last true Triumph. This beautiful example has had only 2 owners from new, the first to 2012. The second owner, an Irishman living in Germany, purchased the TR6 directly from the first owner to make a Coast to Coast road trip afterwards, later before bringing the car back home to Germany. The TR6 is quite stunning in its originality; we see the factory-applied first paint, the intact and untouched tan vinyl interior, the original carpets, dash and wood trim, and the original soft top which is also in excellent condition. Having been maintained to a high standard, the car runs and drives very well. Furthermore the chassis and underside have been professionally cleaned and preserved. This TR6 featured in a detailed comparison report from a leading German classic car magazine between the Porsche 914/6 and a Fiat 124 Spider. The TR6 was described thus, “Those who can find a so well preserved, highly authentic TR6 in the US, can consider themselves very fortunate.” Showing only 35,000 miles recorded, and offered with its original instruction booklet, a copy of the Auto Zeitung article, double set of keys as well as hood and tonneau cover, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for TR6 fans.

1988 Porsche 930 Turbo

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1988 Porsche 930 Turbo Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: WPOZZZ93ZJS070425 Year: 1988 Make: Porsche Model: 930 Turbo Porsche began experimenting with turbocharging technology on their race cars during the late 1960s, and in 1972 began development on a turbocharged version of the 911. Porsche originally needed to produce the car in order to comply with homologation regulations and had intended on marketing it as a street legal race vehicle like the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS. The FIA's Appendix "J" rules that brought about the 911 Turbo Carrera RSR 2.1 in 1974 changed in 1975 and 1976. Ernst Fuhrmann adapted the turbo-technology originally developed for the 917/30 CAN-AM car to the 3.0 litre flat-six from the Carrera RS 3.0, creating what Porsche internally dubbed as 930. Only 1642 Porsche 930 turbo cabriolets were built and this 1988 car comes with a 18 - page expert's report, rating it as an excellent accident free and matching numbers example in condition 1- and a value of €132,000. Its components still bear the original Porsche stickers with VIN numbers and only some of the body parts have been repainted for cosmetic reasons: for instance, the front bumper and the boot section. Most of the bodywork still carries the original paint in white and the original blue leather interior. The car has had only 3 owners - including the present vendor - and a warranted total mileage of only 62500 km as confirmed by Carfax. Other equipment includes, a Porsche wireless/CD CDR 220 unit, air conditioning, sports seats in leather which are electrically adjustable, leather doorcards, and the steering wheel is also leather clad. This turbo Porsche sits on correct Fuchs alloy wheels. This is an extremely well sorted and rare Porsche 930 turbo cabriolet.

1955 Ford Thunderbird V8 292 Ci

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1955 Ford Thunderbird V8 292 Ci Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: P5FH23GG790 Year: 1955 Make: Ford Model: Thunderbird The Thunderbird was launched in 1955, being Ford’s answer to the Chevrolet Corvette, which was having things largely its own way in the rapidly growing market of rich young Americans who wanted a sleek and sporting car. Sales estimates for the first two years of production were far in excess of the predicted figures, trouncing the Corvette and forcing some dramatic rethinking at General Motors. Ford, however, deemed that the only modifications that needed to be made to the Thunderbird were safety features like energy absorbing instrument panel padding and safety door latches, plus practical developments that enhanced the car’s usability. This example has the standard (for 1956 only) ‘Continental’ spare wheel mounting which gave extra luggage space in the boot and the 12 volt electrics which replaced the six volt system used on the 1955 model. This absolutely superb example in silver with a white hard top comes with turquoise interior, with leather seats and automatic gearbox. The odometer is showing just 37,000 kms and it comes with new tyres. These were the envy of many in the USA in its original heyday and this sentiment has not wavered being one of the most sought after of the “ golden era” boulevard driving sports cars of the ‘50s.

1967 Jaguar Mark II 3.4 Saloon

Description: 1967 Jaguar Mark II 3.4 Saloon Reg. Number: Dutch Registered Chassis Number: P181256BW Year: 1967 Make: Jaguar Model: Mark II 3.4 Saloon Although the Mk I was a great success, selling four times as many as the larger Jaguar saloons, Jaguar boss William Lyons was not content. He knew it could be improved. Happily, virtually every aspect that had been criticised received attention in the new MkII range introduced in October 1959. These cars were to rank among the best loved Jaguars ever made and are today regarded as classics. There were some detail changes, including a redesigned interior that was more modern but retained the traditional Jaguar image. Jaguar saloons led the field in production and touring car races during much of the 60s. Not surprisingly the quickest and most successful private entries came from John Coombs’ Jaguar dealership in Guilford. John Coombs had significant race experience and his dealership simply got it right for a fortunate few racing enthusiasts. Very early on that included Hill, Salvadori and Salmon. Rolling off the Jaguar production line in 1967, this charming Mark II has been subject to an older restoration, and still presents well. The engine, chassis and transmission are said to be in good condition, as are the bodywork and paint. Finished in the classic Jaguar shade of British Racing Green, with a lovely wood and black leather interior, this delightful Mark II is said to run and drive well. Supplied with Dutch registration papers, what a great car to take the whole family out on a sunny day!

1993 Ferrari 512 TR

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1993 Ferrari 512 TR Reg. Number: VAT Qualifying Chassis Number: ZFFLA40B000096509 Year: 1993 Make: Ferrari Model: 512 TR Introduced in 1992, the 512 TR was one of the final developments of Ferrari’s sensational Testarossa supercar. Ferrari’s flagship model, the Testarossa revived a famous name from the Italian company’s past when it arrived in 1984. A ‘next generation’ Berlinetta Boxer, the Testarossa retained its predecessor’s amidships-mounted, 5.0-litre, flat-12 engine; the latter now boasting a maximum power output raised to 380bhp courtesy of four-valve cylinder heads. Despite the power increase, smoothness and driveability were enhanced, the car possessing excellent top gear flexibility allied to a maximum speed of 180mph. Unlike some of its rivals, the Testarossa possessed light controls and was relatively easy to drive, factors which, allied to its outstanding performance and stunning looks, contributed to an instant and sustained high level of demand. In 1992 the original Testarossa was succeeded by the extensively revised and improved 512 TR version, which came with 422bhp on tap and noticeably greater grip than its predecessor, the latter being much appreciated by Autocar’s tester: ‘The 512 resolved information about the road surface explicitly; the Testarossa’s feedback wasn’t as sharply focussed nor ultimately as useful when travelling quickly.’ And the 512 TR could certainly manage that, its claimed top speed being 314km/h. Sold new by Auto Becker Ferrari in Germany, and finished in a stunning combination of Giallo Modena with a Nero black leather interior, this well preserved example has been a part of Ferrari collections in Europe and further afield for a number of years. The 512 shows a mere 29,800 kilometres from new, documented with service books and receipts (including engine-out services), and a German Fahrzeugbrief (KFZ). An excellent low-mileage 512 TR in wonderful colours, this is a great addition to any serious collection and one which we are sure will prove to be a sound long-term investment. Note: Interested parties should be aware that VAT is payable on this vehicle at the local prevailing rate.

1974 Rolls-Royce Corniche

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1974 Rolls-Royce Corniche Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: TBA Year: 1974 Make: Rolls-Royce Model: Corniche Recalling the firm’s glamorous Grandes Routières of pre-war days such as the Phantom II Continental, the coachbuilt variants of the new Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and T-Series Bentley were limited to just two: a two-door coupé or similar convertible, the former arriving in March 1966 and the latter in September the following year. Some of the frontal panels were shared with the standard four-door saloon but otherwise the new bodyshells were unique, featuring a distinctive dipping upper wing line with parallel crease, and revised, more rounded posterior. Construction involved shuttling the bodyshells between the Crewe factory and H J Mulliner Park Ward’s Willesden plant, a necessarily lengthy process that took all of 20 weeks for the saloon and slightly longer for the more complex convertible. These exclusive cars were hand built in the best traditions of British coachbuilding using only materials of the finest quality including Wilton carpeting, Connolly hide and burr walnut veneers, such painstaking attention to detail resulting in a price some 50% higher than that of the standard Silver Shadow. Nevertheless, demand for these more glamorous alternatives to the much more numerous four-door model was strong right from the start, a state of affairs that resulted in them being given their own model name – ‘Corniche’ – in March 1971. In Corniche form Rolls-Royce’s well-tried 6.7-litre V8 produced around 10% more power than standard and proved capable of propelling the car to a top speed in excess of 120mph with sports car-beating acceleration to match. Despite its sky-high asking price, the model proved a major success for Rolls-Royce; periodically revised and up-dated, it remained in production well into the 1990s, the last (Convertible) examples being delivered in 1995. Easily one of the most recognisable models built by Rolls Royce, most people have seen a Corniche Convertible on television, in movies or on exotic locations around the world. As a sportier model than the Shadow, the Corniche features a rev. counter, 10% more engine power, and uprated suspension. This beautiful example is a 1974 model, supplied with its original history book and warranty information. The Corniche was restored by a leading Rolls-Royce specialist in the Netherlands and has since been well maintained (which is supported by a number of invoices on file). As such this V8-powered coupe is said to drive very smoothly. With only 780 built, we feel the Corniche is a solid investment for years to come. A wonderful car to own and a delight to drive.

Description: 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: WP0AC2993TS376239 Year: 1996 Make: Porsche Model: 993 Turbo 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.[2] 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.”[3] 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.” The 993 Turbo coupé was released in 1995. It featured a new turbocharged engine displacing 3.6 liters and producing 408 PS. Twin turbochargers and air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals were used. The 993 Turbo was the first 911 Turbo with all-wheel drive, finally delivering Porsche 959 performance as a production car. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to any of the previous production Turbos. This 993 Turbo coupe, built in 1996, immediately went into Porsche`s exclusive department for several months and received numerous works extra features, which are extremely rare in this configuration. The has been in the hands of two collectors all its life and is in absolutely fantastic condition. It comes with a warranted 84,000 kms substantiated by chronological invoices from Porsche specialists which can be seen in the file. There is a 21 page report on its condition which says its “1” and has a value of €193,000. The car comes with a 6 speed gearbox, air conditioning, electrically adjustable coloured seat belts, cruise control, 3 piece Cargraphic alloy wheels to name but a few attributes with the car.

1952 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT Second Series Coachwork by Pinin Farina - Mille Miglia Eligible - Matching Numbers. Original Colour combination

Description: 1952 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT Second Series Coachwork by Pinin Farina - Mille Miglia Eligible - Matching Numbers. Original Colour combination Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: B20-1569 Year: 1952 Make: Lancia Model: Aurelia B20 ‘The B20 represented the birth and the realisation of the “Gran Turismo” concept – that is, an elegant comfortable sports car. The contemporary slogan was right on target: “A sports car in Tails” and Pininfarina’s bodywork remains a masterpiece of formal beauty.’ – Manganaro and Vinai ‘Lancia Corse’, 1988. Introduced in 1907, the Vincenzo Lancia’s first car showed an independence of thought and defiance of convention that would remain associated with the marque well into the modern era. After WW2 Lancia had recommenced production with the Aprilia and its smaller cousin the Ardea but waiting in the wings was yet another groundbreaking design: the Aurelia. Lancia’s classic Aurelia, the first car ever to employ a V6 engine, was launched at the 1950 Turin Motor Show. Designed in wartime by Francesco de Virgilio, the 1,754cc 60-degree V6 was of all-aluminium construction and used overhead valves operated via short pushrods instead of Lancia’s traditional overhead camshafts. An advanced unitary construction design, the Aurelia retained Lancia’s ‘sliding pillar’ independent front suspension, first seen on the Lambda, but used a novel semi-trailing-arm layout at the rear, another world first. The transmission too, was unusual, comprising a two-piece prop-shaft and combined gearbox/rear transaxle on which were mounted the inboard brakes, though for once this was not an entirely new departure. The B10 saloon was joined the following year by the Pinin Farina-styled B20 Coupé, a fastback ‘2+2’ on a shortened wheelbase which, with its combination of sports car performance and saloon car practicality, can be said to have introduced the Gran Turismo concept to the world. The Aurelia engine had been increased to 1,991cc in 1951 and it was this unit in up-rated form that went into the B20. Lighter and higher geared than the saloon, the B20 was good for a top speed of over 160km/h.

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.[2] 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 Carrera 4 S (1996) and later rear wheel drive Carrera S (1997) shared the Turbo model’s bodyshell, but housed the naturally aspirated Carrera engine in the rear. The 4S came with four-wheel drive, whereas the S (sometimes referred to as C2S) was rear wheel drive. Both S models had slightly lowered suspension compared to standard Carrera models. This lovely example in silver with black leather interior comes with sports electric seats and a sunroof. Its 18 inch wheels secure this car’s looks amongst the very best of this marque. These models are fast becoming much sought after this particular example is surely one of the best around.

Description: 1964 Porsche 356SC 1600 Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 108264 Year: 1964 Make: Porsche Model: 356SC 1600 Outwardly very similar to the final Porsche 356Bs, the ultimate 356C model arrived in 1963 sporting four-wheel disc brakes – first seen on the 2.0-litre Carrera 2 – among numerous detail improvements. Engines available – both of 1.6 litres – were the 75bhp ‘C’ and 95bhp ‘SC’, the latter replacing the Super 90. Testing a 356C in 1964, Road & Track enthused over its comfort, quality and excellent performance, concluding, ‘one would look a long time before finding a sports or GT car that offers more pure driving enjoyment.’ Dating from the penultimate year of production, this 356SC has the more desirable 95 horsepower engine. The car was sold new in Europe and has four german owners, Last owner had the car restored at 51000 km in 2006. Current milage is 65000 km. The restoration was carried out by Rupp, a renowned and respected Porsche specialist located in France.

1957 Mercedes-Benz 220S Cabriolet

Description: 1957 Mercedes-Benz 220S Cabriolet Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: 10921N7506764 Year: 1957 Make: Mercedes-Benz Model: 220S Cabriolet It is not always appreciated what a stir Mercedes-Benz road cars made in the 1950s. Leaving aside such obvious stars as the 300SL ‘Gullwing’, there were headlines like ‘Magnificent Mercedes’ when a new saloon came out. It is not hard to see why: the company introduced new levels of build quality to even its most mundane models. Take the 220S, here was a discreetly styled saloon with a top speed of 100mph – when it was introduced in 1956, 100mph was beyond some sports cars. It was superbly assembled at a time when most saloons were of dubious quality and it had such features as servo-assisted brakes and an overhead camshaft engine. It also basked in the reflected glory of Mercedes-Benz’s legendary return to Grand Prix racing in 1954 (Fangio won back-to-back World Championships) and it’s winning of the 1955 World Sports Car Championship. The kudos which surrounded the model range cannot be understated especially since Mercedes-Benz insisted on direct correlations between its road cars and competition cars. With the cars it introduced in the 1950s, Mercedes-Benz began to move to its present market niche. It was a decision which paid off as Mercedes-Benz has become an extraordinarily successful company on the back of matchless engineering and build quality. The 220S is part of that tradition and remains one of the most desirable motorcars of its day. This very beautiful 220S cabriolet was delivered new in 1957, and is still presented in very good condition today. The car is finished in a very stylish shade of light grey, with a contrasting red leather interior. We are pleased to note the 220S is still fitted with its original motor and manual gearbox, and a column-mounted shifter. The car has been checked over by the vendor, who confirms it is ready to be used and enjoyed on the road. Offered with all EU taxes paid, this is a beautiful and very stylish car which can be enjoyed straight away.

1956 Jaguar XK140 SE Fixed Head Coupe – 2 owners from new

Description: 1956 Jaguar XK140 SE Fixed Head Coupe – 2 owners from new Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: S815573 Year: 1956 Make: Jaguar Model: XK140 SE The XK120 set new standards in car design and manufacture, but some of Jaguar’s suppliers needed time to catch up – they were not used to making lights and brakes for 120+ mph cars. It is to Jaguar’s credit that it ran a development programme which continued to within months of the last XK150. When the XK140 was announced in 1954 it was essentially a Mk II version. It retained the excellent dynamics of the XK120 and its superb level of appointment and attention to detail. Engine power increased to 190bhp; there were stiffer torsion bars and improved lights, cooling, brakes and steering. The main improvement, however, was moving the engine and scuttle three inches forward which gave better handling and improved cockpit space without compromising the car’s stunning lines. On the coupés models there were additional seats for children but – nice touch – the back squabs were detachable so that an adult could use the space seated across the car. The entire range abounded with clever details such that the XK series is one of the few which truly merit the term ‘great’. All three models were outstanding, however and only the most expensive exotica could match them either under real driving conditions or for kerbside presence. Taking into account reliability, refinement and sheer pleasure of driving, the XK140 was one of the outstanding cars of its day and it remains one of the greatest classic cars. This stunning 1956 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head coupe was originally delivered to Canada and is fitted with the SE specification C-Type cylinder head. Having had only just 2 owners in the last 60 years, our vendor has had the XK inspected in his workshop and can confirm it drives extremely well. Finished in beautiful dark blue paint, with a grey leather interior and chrome wire wheels, and offered with original title and all duties paid, what a wonderful usable classic car which can be enjoyed in a number of events across Europe.

Description: 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL – manual gearbox Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 113044100007040 Year: 1968 Make: Mercedes-Benz Model: 280SL In March 1963 the new generation of SL sports cars was launched with the debut of the 230 SL at the Geneva Show. This revolutionary new model replaced the now ageing 190 and 300 SL models, and cutting-edge Mercedes engineering together with elegance and practicality, made the ‘pagoda top’ SL one of the most distinctive and attractive cars of its era. In closed form it offered handsome proportions and coupé-like comfort, while the easy removal of the hard-top turned it into an open top sports car for the summer months. During the 1960s Mercedes-Benz refined and updated the SL by also fitting the 250 engine, and finally the 280. As today, Mercedes-Benz cars were never cheap, but superb build quality and sophisticated styling made the 280 SL a very popular choice with the rich and famous, as well as the merely well-heeled. This beautiful Mercedes-Benz was delivered in 1968, finished in ‘Signal Rot’ with a black leather interior. Clearly bought when new by the more sporting driver, the car was fitted with the rare manual gearbox. Delivering almost 200 bhp, a well driven 280SL could keep up with most cars on the road. To keep the weather out, our car has a beautiful mohair soft top in addition to the original hard top. Offered with Dutch title and technical control, this well maintained example will provide many summers of fun for its lucky next owner.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1978 Porsche 911 3.0 SC ‘Rijkspolitie’ high speed pursuit vehicle Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 9118311671 Year: 1978 Make: Porsche Model: 911 3.0 SC Founded in 1962, the Rijkspolitie (SAS) was an elite Dutch police force, where officers had to go through a very tough selection process. The aim of the Rijkspolitie and the use of their elite high speed Porsches was to patrol the new Dutch highways; that for a long time had no speed restrictions at all. The use of Porsches in the Rijkspolitie was eventually discontinued in 1994. In 1978, Porsche introduced the new version of the 911, called the ‘911SC’. Porsche reintroduced the SC designation for the first time since the 356SC. It featured a 3.0-liter engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. Originally power output was 180 bhp, later 188 bhp and then in 1981 it was increased to 204 bhp. Finished in the identifiable red and white colours over black interior, this wonderfully restored 1978 Rijkspolitie Porsche 3.0 SC is provided today with period correct police equipment including the sirens, speakers and the light-up stop warning on the rear end of the car. This really is a very rare opportunity to own an original Dutch Police High Speed Pursuit vehicle with period correct police accessories and equipment, in police colours.

Description: 1958 Austin-Healey 100-6 Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: BN4L-0-49658 Year: 1958 Make: Austin Healey Model: 100-6 Produced in-house by Healey’s small car company in Warwick and based on Austin A90 Atlantic mechanicals, Donald Healey built a single ‘Healey Hundred’ for the 1952 London Motor Show. The design impressed Leonard Lord, Managing Director of Austin, so much that a deal was struck with Healey to build it in quantity at Austin’s Longbridge factory. The car was renamed the Austin-Healey 100. The ‘100’ name comes from Donald Healey, who selected the name from the car’s ability to reach 100mph, then a remarkable figure for a production car. Following on from the successful Austin Healey 100, the second landmark model from this relatively new marque arrived in 1956, the 100-6. The 100-6 used a tuned version of the new BMC ‘C-series’ six cylinder engine in 2,639cc form. The new car had a longer wheelbase and featured a 2+2 interior; this model became known internally at BMC as the BN4. This beautifully restored Austin Healey 100-6 was imported from the dry state of California, and treated to a mechanical restoration by a Dutch specialist in 2013 (which included the engine, gearbox and other components). As such the 100-6 is said to run and drive very well, whilst the paintwork is good, the leather interior is new, and wire wheels have been fitted. Offered with a US title, and with all taxes paid, these Healeys offer fantastic fun with good investment potential.

1963 Citroen DS Cabriolet by Chapron

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1963 Citroen DS Cabriolet by Chapron Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 3281504 Year: 1963 Make: Citroen Model: DS Cabriolet Just as it had done 21 years previously with the revolutionary ‘Traction Avant’, Citroën stunned the world again in 1955 with the launch of the strikingly styled ‘DS’. Beneath the shark-like newcomer’s aerodynamically efficient, low-drag bodyshell there was all-independent, self-levelling, hydro-pneumatic suspension; plus power-operated brakes, clutch and steering. No European car would match the DS’s ride quality for several years, the fundamental soundness of Citroën’s ahead-of-its-time hydro-pneumatic suspension being demonstrated by its survival in present-day top-of-the-range models. The DS’s original 1,911cc, overhead-valve, long-stroke engine was replaced in 1966 by a short-stroke 1,985cc unit, also available in 2,175cc and 2,347cc versions, while other DS developments included swivelling headlights, fuel injection and a five-speed gearbox. Other models offered alongside the original DS were the ID (a simplified, cheaper version), the cavernous Safari estate and the two-door Décapotable (convertible), the latter created by the celebrated Parisian coachbuilder Henri Chapron. The arrival of the Citroën DS in 1955 presented Chapron with a fresh opportunity that would result in his name being forever linked with this remarkable car. His first convertibles were produced independently of Citroën but the factory eventually gave the project its blessing, the factory-approved Décapotables being built on the longer, stronger chassis of the ID Break (Estate). In total, 1,365 (factory) convertibles were made with either the DS 19 or DS 21 engine between 1960 and 1971, while Chapron built a further 389 of his own, the last in 1973. First registered in May 1963, this stunning example was first registered to Switzerland when new. The DS has enjoyed a highly comprehensive restoration which is supported by a photographic record. Such is the quality of the finished car that this example was chosen by the publishers of Classic and Sportscar to be photographed in their studios in London. Beautifully finished in Metallic Grey with a Wine Red leather interior, the car presents itself very well indeed. DS Cabriolets are highly prized by collectors, and this example must rank as one of the very best.

Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: WPOEB0910HS161234 Year: 1987 Make: Porsche Model: 911 Carrera Targa Porsche developed a reputation early on for their surprising performance from their small displacement rear-engine sports and racing cars. These ‘giant killers’ could outperform cars with much higher horsepower figures by making light cars with incredible handling. This combination gave Porsches their truly unique driving characteristics and dedicated following of Porsche enthusiasts. This exceptional 3.2 Targa is the last of the iconic impact bumper cars and is offered in the desirable colour combination of Black with a matching Black Leather interior. Interestingly this example was offered from new with the M900 “Tourist Delivery” option. As a tax incentive buyers were given the option to take delivery from the Stuttgart factory, indulging in a tour of the plant and museum, and leaving with a temporary “tourist” European driving license. You could then enjoy a holiday in your new Porsche before shipping the car back home. Naturally all M900 option cars were supplied with a road map of Western Germany and a first-aid kit. 911s of this era are amongst the fastest, most driveable supercars you can own. Dial in the wind-in-the-hair fun of the targa-top and you have a dream classic 911 in which to embark on summer tours, or merely blast through the lanes on a Sunday morning. This excellent example is very straight both inside and out, with good panel gaps and a clean underside. Offered with Porsche certificate and original service books, and with all EU taxes paid, what a compelling proposition for the Porsche enthusiast.

1979 Ford Capri 3.0 RS – Special

Description: 1979 Ford Capri 3.0 RS – Special Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: GAECWD 57396 Year: 1979 Make: Ford Model: Capri 3.0 RS The Capri Mk III was referred to internally as “Project Carla”, and although little more than a substantial update of the Capri II, it was often referred to as the Mk III. The first cars were available in March 1978, but failed to halt a terminal decline in sales. The concept of a heavily facelifted Capri II was shown at the 1976 Geneva show: a Capri II with a front very similar to the Escort RS2000 (with four headlamps and black slatted grille), and with a rear spoiler, essentially previewed the model some time before launch. The new styling cues, most notably the black “Aeroflow” grille (first used on the Mk I Fiesta) and the “sawtooth” rear lamp lenses echoed the new design language being introduced at that time by Ford of Europe’s chief stylist Uwe Bahnsen across the entire range. Similar styling elements were subsequently introduced in the 1979 Cortina 80, 1980 Escort Mk III and the 1981 Granada Mk IIb. In addition, the Mk III featured improved aerodynamics, leading to improved performance and economy over the Mk II and the trademark quad headlamps were introduced. At launch the existing engine and transmission combinations of the Capri II were carried over, with the 3.0 S model regarded as the most desirable model although the softer, more luxurious Ghia derivative with automatic, rather than manual transmission, was the bigger seller of the two V6-engined models. Only 100 Capri 3.0 RS were manufactured by Ford in 1979 and 1980 – exactly 50 units in each year.All were painted in white with blue side stripes. Today, this is one of the rarest and most sought after of the big Ford Capris. The car which we are pleased to offer comes from an important single marque collection and received a light restoration in 2013 and has been continuously serviced since. The restoration included brakes and brake cylinders including a remanufactured brake master cylinder, RS exhaust manifolds, air filter, new fuel pump, new sealing kit and ignition. Lastly, the car received a new protective underbody sealing and new paint. Reading only 112000 kms on its odometer, the car was regularly driven and its last service was done in summer of this year. Presented in beautiful all over condition with its original interior, this very rare Capri needs nothing and is ready to be enjoyed by its next lucky owner.

Description: 1956 Austin Healey 100M BN2 Le Mans Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: BN2-L/233030 Year: 1956 Make: Austin Helaey Model: 100M BN2 Le Mans Automotive developer and racer Donald Healey, looking to reach a broader sports car market, developed this iconic British sports car in 1953 using a 4-cylinder Austin A90 engine. An initial success, British Motors Corporation saw the value of a strong competitor to the Triumph TR Series and took over production. The BN2 was fitted with a real four-speed manual transmission, still with overdrive on the top two gears. Other features that distinguish the BN2 from the BN1 are the slightly larger front wheel arches, different rear axle. In 1955, a high-performance 100M model was introduced, with larger carburettors, a cold air box to increase engine air flow, high-lift camshaft and 8.1:1 compression pistons. It produced 110 bhp (82 kW) at 4500 rpm. The front suspension was stiffened and the bonnet gained louvres, along with a bonnet belt. Approximately 70% of 100Ms were finished with a two-tone paint scheme, including one White over Red and another in Black over Pink for display at the 1955 London Motor Show. In all, 640 100Ms were built by the factory. The 100M was a specially enhanced version of the car and was offered for just one year, 1955-1956. Modifications included a high compression head, four-speed gearbox with overdrive and improved front brakes. 100Ms competed in the Mille Miglia in 1953 and 1954. Finished in one of the most desirable colour combinations of black and Reno red with red leather interior and contrasting black hood, #233030 has recently undergone a meticulous restoration by one of the world’s leading Healey 100 experts, bringing the car to an excellent condition throughout. This is a genuine matching numbers example of one of the 640 BN2 100M’s ever made, offered in unrivalled condition this truly represents a very rare opportunity to join the elites’ of the Healey aficionado’s by owning one of the most iconic and enjoyable cars of the 50’s. Being sold out of a private Healey 100 collection which included two other 100M’s.

1981 Ferrari 308 GT4 Dino

Description: 1981 Ferrari 308 GT4 Dino Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 15584 Year: 1981 Make: Ferrari Model: 308 GT4 Dino Introduced at the 1973 Paris Motor Show, the Dino 308 GT4 was a significant departure for Ferrari in several ways. It was the first production car from Modena to feature a mid-engined V8, a layout that would become common to their core range for decades to come, along with the first production model to feature Bertone styling rather than Pininfarina bodywork. The styling was controversial at the time, with some journalists comparing it to the Bertone-designed Lancia Stratos and Lamborghini Urraco. The chassis was based on the Dino 246 but was stretched to make space for a 2+2 Configuration. The 3.0 Litre V8 was integrally joined with the gearbox and had an alloy block and heads with dual overhead camshafts fed through 4 Weber 40 DCNF carburettors. The GT4 was replaced by the Mondial 8 in 1980 after a production run of 2,826 308s and 840 208s. Interestingly, this very late 308 GT4 was supplied new in February 1981 by the French importer Pozzi, after official production ended. The car is finished in the extremely avant-garde combination of Marrone Metallizzato with a Beige leather interior, which we feel is a very suitable colour combination for a car designed to be a little more grown up than the preceding Dino 246. Occupants are kept cool by the option of air conditioning which is combined with a factory-fitted steel sun-roof, a very rare and desirable option. Now showing 74,000 kilometres recorded, the car has been serviced and fitted with new cambelts. Presented in excellent condition in all respects, with Belgian registration papers, what an exciting, yet slightly more subtle way to enjoy Ferrari motoring.

Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: MLA2901FVOM Year: 2004 Make: Lamborghini Model: Murcielago 6.2 V12 Styled by Luc Donckerwalke, the Lamborghini head of design at the time, the Lamborghini Murciélago was built between 2001 and 2010. Successor to the Diablo and the flagship of the Lamborghini’s lineup, the Murciélago was introduced as a coupé in 2001. It was Lamborghini’s first new design in eleven years and was also the brand’s first new model under the ownership of German parent company Audi. The First-generation Murciélagos, produced between 2001 and 2006, were powered by a Lamborghini V12 that traces its roots back to the company’s beginnings in the 1960s. The V12 engine produced 572 hp and powered the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds. With an angular design and exceptionally low body, the car sits just under 4 feet above ground. Scissor doors were carried over from earlier models, continuing the extreme looks Lamborghinis are so well known for. Presented in the rare colour combination of black with red interior, this left hand drive example comes with the favorable manual gearbox. With 54,900km on the odometer, the car is described as being in very good condition throughout. Complete with a full LP 640 body and with the upgraded LP 640 exhaust, the note of the V12 engine is widely regarded to be the best of any of the modern-day supercars. Combining the simplistic yet aggressive Lamborghini looks with the build-quality of the recently adopted Audi parent-company, the Murcielago is fast becoming a highly collectable car.

Description: 1965 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series 1 Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 5933 Year: 1965 Make: Ferrari Model: 330 GT 2+2 Replacing the 250 GTE 2+2 and the limited-production 330 America was the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2, which made its first public appearance at the Brussels Salon in January 1964. This new model helped carry on the success of the 2+2 models of the immediate past with several key updates, in hopes of seeing an increase in sales over the 250 GTE 2+2. Ferrari’s new four-seater featured a completely new body style from Pininfarina, one that was very distinctive from the other Ferrari models on sale at the time. The easiest way to identify the first-series 330 GT 2+2 is by its quad headlight front end. The Series II cars adapted dual headlights, leaving the Series I as the sole model of the entire 330 GT 2+2 production run to wear quad headlights. Other notable cosmetic changes include more angular nose and tail sections from the 250 GTE 2+2 and the introduction of a wider front grille to help increase airflow to the engine. Following in the footsteps of the 330 America in terms of its drivetrain, the 330 GT 2+2 featured a four-litre V-12 engine, which was mated to the existing four-speed-plus overdrive transmission in the 250 GTE. Its wheelbase was increased by two inches, and with the installation of Koni shock absorbers, handling had improved immensely. Before production began on the redesigned Series II, Ferrari had produced 625 examples of the initial series. The 330 GT 2+2 remains one of Ferrari’s finest four-passenger touring cars. With its 300-horsepower, 4.0-litre engine, it is powerful yet easy to drive around town, while its luxurious appointments make it as ideal for today’s road tours and events as when it was new. As 330-series Ferraris become more desirable to collectors, the 330 GT 2+2 provides an opportunity into Ferrari ownership at a reasonable price.

Description: 1971 Datsun 240Z – 2 owners from new Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: TBA Year: 1971 Make: Datsun Model: 240Z It soon became apparent during its creation, that the Datsun 240Z represented all the requirements of sports-minded drivers by fulfilling their desires for superb styling, power and safety whilst providing them with the most thrilling and enjoyable ride available in any car. Reporting 151 B.H.P and 146 lb ft of torque at just 4,400 rpm, Car & Driver said; “A brilliantly conceived car with twice as much thought having gone into it when compared to the Big Healey, MGC, Lotus Elan, Porsches and Corvettes”. Offering a 125mph top-speed and the 0-60mph dash in a shade under 8 seconds, the well-spaced 5-speed gear ratios made the most of the engine’s torque whilst retaining the ability to achieve in excess of 30 mpg, this was to put the ‘Z’ ahead of many of it’s contemporaries and on a par with Porsche 911s of the time. Very impressive, by anyone’s standards. Although Datsun didn’t invent the Overhead-Cam Engine, Disc Brakes or all-round Independent suspension, the 240Z incorporated all of these systems into a brilliantly conceived car. The Datsun ‘Z’ had an immeasurable record in competition, achieving excellent results in both racing and rallying, earning the car a deserved reputation for ruggedness and reliability. Carefully gas-flowing the cylinder head, increasing compression ratios, fitting high-lift performance camshafts and the use of Mangoletsi-type inlet manifolds with triple 40 DCOE carburettors, along with 6-into-1 exhaust manifolds and straight-through exhaust systems, led to power outputs in excess of 190 B.H.P and 0-60 mph times of around the 6 seconds mark. It was no surprise therefore that, for many years the Datsun 240Z was heralded as the most successful sports-car of all time. This fabulous two-owner car has never been completely restored, but has benefitted from light refurbishment, notably a repaint in its original shade. As such this car is presented in excellent condition in all respects. Offered with Belgian papers, what a wonderful sportscar for the connoisseur.

1962 Maserati Sebring with Giordanengo built A6GCS coachwork

Description: 1962 Maserati Sebring with Giordanengo built A6GCS coachwork Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: AM101*01507* Year: 1962 Make: Maserati Model: Sebring File Images The legendary Italian marque of Maserati had been founded in 1926 as a manufacturer of, predominantly, single-seat racing cars. A number of two-seat sports variants were produced pre-World War 2 but they were relatively rare, particularly in contrast to the many Vetturetta or Voiturette-class purebred open-wheeled racing models they manufactured. In 1937 the founding Maserati brothers sold their company to the industrialist Adolfo Orsi, who moved their factory from Bologna to Modena, and who retained the brothers’ services under a ten-year service contract. Upon its expiry they returned to Bologna where they founded their own independent OSCA company, but in Modena the Gruppo Orsi’s Automobili Maserati company went from strength to strength. The A6GCS was a very important model for them, and it enjoyed great racing success right from its debut in time for the 1947 season. Ever since the first races of the single-seat Maserati 6CM, Ernesto Maserati had nurtured a plan to use that 6-cylinder engine as the basis of sports car. As early as September 1946 Ernesto Maserati and engineer Alberto Massimino had produced an unsupercharged 6C-1500 driven by its new owner Guido Barbieri to race wins at Mantua and then – with Gigi Villoresi behind the wheel – at Voghera. This 1500cc 6-cylinder with single overhead camshaft breathed through three twin-choke Weber carburettors and developed around 90bhp. For 1947 Maserati had learned that Ferrari was poised to launch a new 1500cc V12-engined sporting rival. The news was literally like a red rag to a bull. The result was the Maserati A6GCS. Major styling houses such as Pinin Farina and Frua subsequently produced Gran Turismo versions of the basic A6G – ‘G’ for ‘Ghersa’, ‘iron’ crankcase engined model. As Massimino adopted a racing orientated ladder frame chassis with oval-section main longeron tubes – made for Maserati by the same specialist Gilco company that supplied Ferrari – the A6G emerged most famously as the A6GCS model – ‘C’ for ‘Corsa’ (race) and ‘S’ for ‘Sport’. Drivers Alberto Ascari and Gigi Villoresi excelled in these lightweight and spartan new sports-racing cars through the 1947-48 seasons, and the early-style A6GCS progressed in specialist production into 1953 – at least 16 being manufactured before the twin-overhead camshaft A6GCS/53 replaced it in much more intensive production – over 50 of these later cars – such as ‘2053’ now being offered here – becoming the backbone of 2-litre International sports car competition not only in Europe, but also in the USA. It is believed that 48 A6GCS/53 cars were produced with Spider bodies and four with the ‘Berlinetta Pininfarina’ closed coachwork. All were originally delivered with a 1985cc aluminum block, overhead twin-cam, twin-plug engine producing approximately 170 horse power. Through the years, many of the A6GCSs used for racing saw multiple engine changes and subsequent modifications. Often, American engines were inserted into the ageing chassis/body assemblies to replace the careworn 6-cylinder in-line Maserati originals. Aluminum Coachwork build by the legendary Giovanni Giordanengo, best known for his world class 250 TR and GTO evocations, this stunning A6GCS was built in Italy by him in 1989/1990.

2000 BMW Z8

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 2000 BMW Z8 Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: TBA Year: 2000 Make: BMW Model: Z8 That this new car, the Z8, is scorchingly fast comes as no surprise. It employs the potent 400-hp M5 powertrain, which endows the M5 sedan with the acceleration of a Corvette. Weighing about 500 pounds less than the two-ton M5, the Z8’s performance is beyond question.’ Car & Driver. In recent times many motor manufacturers, particularly those with a significant sporting heritage, have felt the need to reference iconic models from the past when launching their latest. BMW has proved adept at exploiting this ‘retro’ trend, commencing in 1996 with the Z3 coupé and convertible, the styling of which brilliantly recalled its fabulous ‘328’ sports car of pre-war days. Its next effort along similar lines – the ‘Z07’ concept car of 1997 – took its inspiration from the post-war Alfred Goetz-designed ‘507’, a luxurious limited-edition roadster which, despite its sublime looks and superb performance, all but bankrupted the struggling German company. The sensation of the 1997 Tokyo Auto Show, the Z07 was received so enthusiastically that BMW took the decision to press ahead with a production version: the Z8. Some of the Z07’s less practical features were deleted, including the four-spoke steering wheel, ‘double bubble’ hardtop and driver’s headrest fairing, but for the most part the Z8 remained remarkably faithful to the original concept, retaining the 507-like twin-nostril front grille and distinctive front-wing vents. A period-style interior had been one of the Z07’s most remarked upon features, and that too made it into the Z8. Car & Driver was moved to remark: ‘In truth, the Z8’s visual charisma is so powerful that just sitting in this car with the engine off is more fun than driving many other cars. Then when you press the starter button – set apart, also a tribute to the past – another level of excitement begins.’ The Z8’s body panelling and spaceframe chassis were fabricated in lightweight and corrosion resistant aluminium, while the 32-valve 4,941cc V8 engine, shared with M5 saloon, was built by BMW’s Motorsport division. With 400bhp on tap, the Z8 raced to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.7 seconds and only the built-in rev limiter stopped it from exceeding 250km/h (155mph). Power reached the run-flat tyres via a Getrag six-speed manual gearbox. Needless to say, the Z8 also came with all the modern appurtenances one would expect of a flagship model: traction control, stability control, front and side air bags, GPS navigation, climate control and power operation of the seats, steering wheel and convertible hood all being included in the package. The fact that the Z8 was a low-volume model assembled, for the most part, by hand, enabled BMW to offer customers considerable freedom in personalising their cars. Further enhancing its appeal to collectors, the factory announced that a 50-year stockpile of Z8 parts would be maintained. Despite a (US) launch price of over $128,000, initial demand was so high that a bidding war broke out, with many Z8s selling for well in excess of that figure. By the time production ceased in 2003, 5,703 of these fabulous cars had been built. This beautiful example was delivered new in September 2000, finished in the rarer option of black with a matching black leather interior, and matching hardtop. A damage-free example, the Z8 has been well maintained over the years, and as such is offered with the original manuals and service booklets to support its 84,000 kilometres. This stunning car is said to drive very well, with a powerful V8 and excellent handling. With interest in all BMW Z8s increasing year on year, this is not only a great car to enjoy but a solid investment too.

Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: WPOEB0914FS171049 Year: 1985 Make: Porsche Model: 911 Cabriolet Porsche revived the Carrera name – previously used for the competition orientated versions of the preceding 356 model – for its luxuriously equipped, top-of-the-range 911 in 1973, applying the evocative title to all 911 variants, coinciding with the introduction of the 3.2 litre engine, from the start of the 1984 model year. Although it remained an air-cooled flat six, the 3.2 motor was 80% new and incorporated an effective cam chain tensioner and associated lubrication system, which at last addressed a perennial 911 shortcoming. This enlarged and extensively revised new engine produced 231bhp, 27 horsepower more than its predecessor, endowing the Carrera with a level of performance approaching that of the original 911 Turbo of 1974, the bald statistics being a 0-60mph time of 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 152mph, with 100mph reachable in a breath-taking 13.6 seconds. A quarter of a century on, Carrera 3.2s are now highly sought after and for very good reason, though finding one in a condition such as this is not easy. This beautiful original matching-numbers example is finished in the classic 1980s combination of Grand Prix White with a white leather interior. This 911 has covered a sensible 104,000 miles from new, and offered with the relevant Porsche certification, in addition to US title and proof of EU taxes paid, A stunning usable,fast, practical Porsche which can be enjoyed all year round.

Description: 1973 Ford Escort Mexico – 2D 1600 GT Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: BFATNA 70029 Year: 1973 Make: Ford Model: Escort The Escort had conventional rear-wheel drive and a four-speed manual gearbox, or three-speed automatic transmission. The Escort was the first small Ford to use rack-and-pinion steering. The Mark I featured contemporary styling cues in tune with its time: a subtle Detroit-inspired “Coke bottle” waistline and the “dogbone” shaped front grille – arguably the car›s main stylistic feature. Similar Coke bottle styling featured in the larger Cortina Mark III (also built in West Germany as the Taunus) launched in 1970. higher performance version for rallies and racing was available, the Escort Twin Cam, built for Group 2 international rallying. It had an engine with a Lotus-made eight-valve twin camshaft head fitted to the 1.5 L non-crossflow block, which had a bigger bore than usual to give a capacity of 1,557 cc. This engine had originally been developed for the Lotus Elan. Production of the Twin Cam, which was originally produced at Halewood, was phased out as the Cosworth-engined RS1600 production began. The Mark I Escorts became successful as a rally car, and they eventually went on to become one of the most successful rally cars of all time.[14] The Ford works team was practically unbeatable in the late 1960s / early 1970s, and arguably the Escort’s greatest victory was in the 1970 London to Mexico World Cup Rally, co-driven by Finnish legend Hannu Mikkola and Swedish co-driver Gunnar Palm. This gave rise to the Escort Mexico (1598cc “crossflow”-engined) special edition road versions in honour of the rally car. Introduced in November 1970, 10,352 Mexico Mark I’s were built.[15 This example is a rare genuine original 1973 Ford Mexico 1600 GT produced for the Scandinavian market and shipped in 1973 to Finland where it resided until 2012. The car was never rallied and obviously had an easy life, showing its excellent condition and the believed genuine mileage of only 10255 kms on the odometer. In 2011 it was re-painted light blue which probably was its original colour. From Finland it was imported to Holland in 2012 from where it is now offered. The car is in excellent overal condition and comes with copies of tt’s manual, the original SF Rekisteriote Registerutdrag and the official SA-HK from 2012, duly signed by the Finish Museum Museoajoneuvo, stating its originality. The car correctly sits on its original wheels and still has its original and excellent interior, steering wheel etc. etc. This is a well- priced lovely original example offered in lovely condition.

1953 Austin Healey BN1 Project (Early Car)

Description: 1953 Austin Healey BN1 Project (Early Car) Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: BN1-L/145425 Year: 1953 Make: Austin Healey Model: BN1 Timing is everything and it’s something that British motor industry veteran Donald Healey knew a bit about. This was a man who had won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1931 driving an Invicta, but failed to finish in 1935 after colliding with a train while driving one of the three Triumph Dolomite straight-eights. Following World War II, Healey struck out on his own and from his base in Warwick, UK, began building very high-quality sporting cars using Riley running gear. There were roadsters and dropheads and coupes. These were cars that an upper middle-class owner could drive to work and rally or race on the weekends. But they weren’t cheap. Next came the Nash-Healey sports car. But despite modestly priced-running gear from the American independent manufacturer, the chassis, suspension and coachwork still resulted in a car that cost more than $4,000. Healey was well aware that he needed a car that could be built in larger numbers and sold at a lower price in the rapidly emerging sports car market in the new world. MG and Jaguar were selling the bulk of their production to North America and Triumph was readying the TR2. Using the four-cylinder 2.6 liter Austin A-90 engine and transmission, as well as other components from the parts bin of newly-formed BMC (a merger of the Austin and Nuffield/Morris companies), Healey produced a sleek and beautiful prototype styled by Gerry Coker. Healey showed his “Healey Hundred” at the 1952 Earls Court Motor Show in the UK and caught the eye of BMC supreme Leonard Lord. Again, Healey’s timing was perfect. Lord selected his car over a new MG prototype, thus delaying the replacement of the old-fashioned MG TD, which was also in the BMC family. When it went on sale in 1953, the beautiful Austin-Healey 100 cost less than $3,000 in the United States and would top 100mph. Those first cars, designated BN1, used the 90 bhp Austin engine, a three-speed transmission with overdrive and were happily received in the United States, which took most of the 10,688 cars produce. This is a fantastically rare, matching numbers “Barn Find” is one of the earlier and more desirable BN1’s. As can be seen from the heritage certificate, this car was originally finished in Healey grey (otherwise named Healey blue) with blue trim. The hood colour was never recorded so whomever decides to take up the task of restoring this exciting project may decide.

Description: 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo WLS1 Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: WPOZZZ992TS372134 Year: 1996 Make: Porsche Model: 993 Turbo The 993 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998, replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches. The 993 Turbo Coupe was released in 1995. It featured a new turbochargers engine displacing 3.6 liters producing 402 hp. Twin turbochargers and air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals were used. The 993 Turbo was the first Porsche Turbo with all-wheel drive. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to any of the previous production Turbos. In connection with two catalytic converters and an on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, it also made the 993 Turbo the cleanest sports car at its time. The Turbo’s bodywork differs from the Carrera body by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper mouldings and a fixed rear wing housing the intercoolers. new 18-inch alloy wheels with weight-reducing hollow spokes were standard. But this wasn’t enough for Porsche’s power-hungry clients. As such the 430bhp WLS1 powerkit was offered, comprising chip-tuning and increase in boost pressure (offered with the option code X50). To boost sales, highly equipped versions were offered and were called the 911 993 Turbo S. This unique Porsche 993 Turbo included the WLS1 powerkit for 993 turbo but also the option code X79 which added a front spoiler, air inlets instead of fog lamps and side air vents on the rear wings. Showing 65,000 recorded kilometres from new, the fabulous car is offered with the relevant manuals and evidence of servicing throughout its lifetime. These 993 Turbos are seen by many as the last of the breed of ultimate air-cooled 911s. Finished in gorgeous Arena Red with contrasting blue leather interior, this car should not be missed by any collector.

Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: WDB10704512014429 Year: 1982 Make: Mercedes-Benz Model: 380SL The SLs of this era (the 107 chassis) really established themselves as an icon of quality and success on the Continent as well as the Americas. Unlike the previous SL range, these cars were rugged and durable and could accumulate high mileage and still remain reliable with just the most basic of care. The first of the generation was the 350SL, a car that is now beginning to occupy a strong place in the hearts of Mercedes-Benz collectors, it was the original pure design with no emissions equipment to speak of, small plated bumpers and manual windows. Being lighter and unrestricted from an emissions standpoint meant the cars were lively performers as well as quiet and comfortable touring cars. Following the discontinuation of the SLC in September 1981, the 107 series continued initially as the 280, 380 and 500 SL. At this time, the V8 engines were re-tuned for greater efficiency. Finished in the classic combination of metallic silver with contrasting wine red leather interior, this lovely example has enjoyed much refurbishment over the last year or so. The bodywork has enjoyed a full repaint, the interior has been re-trimmed in sumptuous leather, and a new convertible soft top has been fitted. The mechanicals were deemed to be in good condition, nevertheless the engine was treated to a tune up. These timeless classic Mercedes Sports were built to last and needed very little in the way of maintenance. This model comes with the highly desirable V8 which provides effortless acceleration and touring ability matched by very few cars of the last few decades.

Description: 1972 BMW 3.0 CSi Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 2261539 Year: 1972 Make: BMW Model: 3.0 CSi With BMW looking to push the marque further upmarket, the combination of their bahn-storming six cylinder engine and a pretty but underpowered Coupé in its portfolio, it was almost inevitable that the two would get together. The resulting E9 Coupé is one of BMW’s best ever Coupés. British buyers had to wait until 1969 before they could sample the new car and shortly after, in 1971, the 3.0 CS made its debut with another 10bhp and more torque for better flexibility. This year also saw the introduction of this car – the 3.0 CSI fuel injected version, and with more power it became BMW’s first 200bhp plus machine. It was always an expensive machine at some £6,000 when new in 1971 – that would have bought you a Porsche 911 of the period or even an entry-level Ferrari. In recent years, prices of its big brother, the legendary CSL have rapidly risen to a whole new league with the CSI’s tipped to follow. This striking Swedish-delivered example of an increasingly rare and desirable model is presented in good condition in all respects, having been repainted in recent times. The chrome and glass are original and present well, the car has recently has new tyres and refurbished wheels. The engine starts right up and sounds great, having been serviced with new oil and filters. Additionally the alternator has been rebuilt and all the fuel lines have been replaced. Brakes have been attended to, with new brake hoses and new calipers in the back. Finished in its original shade of Baikal metallic blue with a contrasting retrimmed Tobacco leather interior, and described as being in good condition in all respects, this BMW 3.0 CSi is a highly usable, practical, swift, stylish way to enjoy classic motoring.

Description: 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: 7R-2923-9 Year: 1969 Make: Jaguar Model: E-Type Series II The first significant upgrade of Jaguar’s sensational E-Type sports car took shape in October 1964 with the launch of the 4.2-litre version. Along with the bigger, torquier engine came a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on first gear, and a superior Lockheed brake servo. Apart from ‘4.2’ badging, the car’s external appearance was unchanged, but under the skin there were numerous detail improvements. These mainly concerned the cooling and electrical systems, the latter gaining an alternator and adopting the industry standard negative ground, while the interior boasted a matt black dashboard and improved seating arrangements. The top speed of around 150mph remained unchanged, the main performance gain resulting from the larger engine being improved acceleration. Like its 3.8-litre forbear, the 4.2-litre E-Type was built in roadster and coupé forms, and in 1966 gained an additional 2+2 coupé variant on a 9” longer wheelbase. Intended to extend the E-Type’s appeal beyond the traditional sports car-buying market, the new ‘family orientated’ 2+2 came with improved visibility thanks to an increased glass area, more headroom, improved heating and ventilation, additional luggage space and optional Borg-Warner automatic transmission. In 1968 all three versions of the E-Type underwent major revision to comply with US safety and emissions legislation, emerging in ‘Series 2’ guise minus the original’s distinctive headlight covers. In addition, enlarged side and rear lights were adopted while a thickened front bumper centre section bridged a larger radiator intake. Interior changes included a collapsible steering column and rocker switches in place of the earlier toggles. This beautiful matching numbers 1969 Jaguar E-Type OTS has enjoyed a highly detailed restoration, and is finished in the classic combination of Signal Red with a Black Leather interior and matching soft-top. During the restoration the original engine was also rebuilt, and is now in excellent running condition. This nicely restored E-Type is ready for lots of driving fun in the summer months, whilst we are sure will prove to be a wise investment for the future.

Description: 1963 Lancia Flaminia 2.8 GT – 3C Convertible Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 8261341019 Year: 1963 Make: Lancia Model: Flaminia 2.8 GT The Lancia Flaminia is a luxury car produced by Italian automaker Lancia from 1957 to 1970. It was Lancia’s flagship model at that time, replacing the Aurelia. It was available throughout its lifetime as saloon, coupé and cabriolet. The Flaminia coupé and convertible were coachbuilt cars with bodies from several prestigious Italian coachbuilders. Four “presidential” stretched limousine Flaminias were produced by Pininfarina for use on state occasions. Carrozzeria Touring designed and built these aluminum bodied two-door versions, which can be easily distinguished by their four-round headlights (rather than two on Pininfarina Flaminias), and a shorter cabin – the wheelbase was decreased significantly for the GT and Convertibile, allowing for only two seats to be mounted. The GT was a coupé, while the Convertibile was obviously a cabriolet version (with optional hardtop). The GTL, introduced in 1962, was a 2+2 version of the GT with a slightly longer wheelbase. The Convertibile was in production until 1964, with 847 made in total (180 with the 2.8), while the GT and GTL lasted until 1965, with 1718 GTs and 300 GTLs made (out of which, 168 GTs and 297 GTLs with the 2.8). Only 180 Lancia Flaminia convertibles with the 2.8 litre engine were manufactured by the works. So any surviving examples in good condition are extremely rare and sought after. Especially the late 2.8 GT 3C, clothed by Touring in the most beautiful aluminium cabriolet body and an engine output of 140 HP, is the preferred specification for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

Description: 1998 Ferrari 456 GTA Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: ZFFWP50B000114507 Year: 1998 Make: Ferrari Model: 456 GTA The Pininfarina designed original 456 was available in GT and (from 1996) GTA forms. The difference in name signifies the transmission: the former has a six-speed manual and the latter has a four-speed automatic developed in partnership with FF Developments in Livonia, MI (which was later purchased by Ricardo Engineering in the UK). This was only the fourth automatic transmission ever offered by Ferrari. The 5.5 Litre (5474 cc) 65° V12 engine was derived from the Dino V6 rather than the more conventional 60° V12s used in the 412 and Daytona. It produced 436 hp (325 kW; 442 PS) with 4 valves per cylinder and Bosch Motronic 2.7 engine management. It could push the 1690 kg car and four passengers to 302 km/h (188 mph) making it the world’s fastest production four-seater. Acceleration to 100 km/h (62 mph) was just 5.2 seconds, with a 13.4 second quarter-mile time. At the time of its development, it was the most powerful road car ever developed by Ferrari (aside from the F40). The name 456 is derived from the fact that each cylinder displaces 456 cubic centimetres. This was the last Ferrari to use this naming convention. It is essentially a detuned version of the engine that appears in the 550 and 575. Despite its supercar performance, the 456 has a relatively unstressed engine, which has proven to be a very reliable unit. The chassis is a tubular steel spaceframe construction with a one-piece composite bonnet and body panels of aluminium. The body panels are welded to the chassis by using a special “sandwich filler” called feran that, when laid between, allows steel and aluminium to be welded. First registered on 12th November 1998, this beautiful example is finished in stunning metallic blue with a matching blue leather interior. An original European-delivered car from new, the GTA is offered with German registration papers. Pleasingly a service was completed in 2016, with very few kilometres having been completed since, and new cambelts were fitted at 63,000 kilometres. Offering with full history and all books contained in its leather pouch, this is a truly gorgeous, fast, modern, continent-crushing GT car.

From 1988 to 1996, 1215 units were built as four door or touring versions. The B10 Allrad is especially rare, being based on the BMW 525ix, with only 64 produced from October 1993. The displacement of the six-cylinder single-VANOS and four-valve technology was increased from 2.5 liters to 3.0 liters, and the performance was increased from 141 kW (192 hp) to 170 kW (231 hp). This example has covered a mere 90,000 kilometers from new, and as such is presented in good order throughout. The previous owner was the importer for Dinitrol rust treatment, so of course the car has been well preserved in his ownership. The B10 is offered with the relevant books and tools, the correct Alpina documentation, and is fitted with rare and desirable Alpina Recaro sports seats. Finished in Silver with an anthracite interior, this is a supremely stylish and powerful modern classic which can be used and enjoyed all year round.

Description: 1986 Citroen 2CV Charleston Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: VF7AZKACCKA215258 Year: 1986 Make: Citroen Model: 2CV Charleston In late 1980, the Charleston cost 24,800 francs, a premium of 4,820 francs over a 2CV6 Spéciale and 1,500 francs over a 2CV6 Club. For the sake of comparison, that same year a two-door Volkswagen Golf cost 29,490 francs. The 8,000 examples of the Charleston sold out very quickly and the car was added to the Citroën catalogue as a regular production model in July of 1981. In its transition from a limited-edition to a regular-production model, the Charleston gained disc brakes up front, chromed headlight housings and a a diamond-stitched cloth upholstery. The car became an instant hit and it enabled Citroën’s top brass to justify keeping the car around for a little longer. In July of 1982, Citroën offered the Charleston with a yellow and black two-tone motif that was not particularly popular among shoppers. It was replaced by a grey and black motif in July of 1983. The Charleston became the best-selling 2CV in the 1980s, and it was part of the lineup up until the deux chevaux was given the axe on July 27th, 1990. Finished in the very stylish combination of black over light grey, this is an excellent example of what is one of the most iconic cars of the last century.

The BMW 2002 tii, exquisite penance for the unrehabilitated car addict.” – Car and Driver, February 1972 With its lightweight body construction, four-wheel independent suspension, rear wheel drive and front disc brakes, the 2002 Tii provided lively performance along with the practicality of a spacious cabin and a large luggage area. There was no other car at that time that could match the Tii. Power came from the reliable race-bred 2.0 litre M10 overhead cam 4 cylinder engine with Kugelfischer (Bosch) mechanical fuel injection producing 130 bhp, which powered this family car to a top speed of 185 km/h. Finished in Chamonix White with a leather/cloth interior, this particularly solid example was delivered in Spain to a US soldier stationed in a military base. For this reason the dash controls are labelled with English text such as “wipers”, “lights”, and so on. The owner returned to the US, the car however remained in Spain until 2015. After receiving a technical inspection in 1988 the Tii went into storage until 2015, when it was bought by a Spanish collector who restored the car. The works included a rebuild of the injection pump, cleaning the fuel tank, a new timing injection pump, starter motor, exhaust, shock absorbers, wheel bearings, brakes, and new tyres all round. The body, never welded and with very little sign of corrosion, was then treated to a full repaint in Chamonix White. The 2002 Tii really is the definition of the “Ultimate Driving Machine”, and this example none more so. A great car to own and a good buy in the current market.

An instant classic, the body design was all-new, while beneath the skin the running gear was conventional Mercedes-Benz, featuring all-round independent suspension (by swing axles at the rear), disc front/drum rear brakes and a choice of four-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Top speed was in excess of 120mph. The 230SL even managed a debut competition victory, winning the Spa-Sofia-Liège Rally in the hands of Eugen Bohringer. Christened ‘pagoda top’ after their distinctive cabin shape, these SL models were amongst the best-loved sports-tourers of their day and continue to be highly sought after by collectors. Mercedes-Benz convertibles of all kinds have been on a rise for some time, and W113 Pagodas such as this 230SL are some of the most enjoyable and usable cars out there. This fabulous UK-registered car has had just two owners from new, and pleasingly has never been welded, although it has benefitted from a repaint in its original shade, and replacement convertible soft-top. Finished in a stunning shade of Green with a contrasting black leather interior, and supplied in excellent condition in all respects, in the world of the W113 Pagoda we feel this is a very safe bet indeed.

1965 Citroen ID

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1965 Citroen ID Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 3670404 Year: 1965 Make: Citroen Model: ID After 18 years of secret development, the Citroën DS 19 was introduced in 1955 at the Paris Motor Show. In the first 15 minutes of the show, 743 orders were taken, and orders for the first day totalled 12,000. When the DS was launched it pushed the boundaries in the ‘ride vs. handling’ compromise equation beyond what was thought possible in a motor vehicle. The DS was the first mass produced car with front disc brakes. It also featured hydropneumatic suspension which included an automatic levelling system and variable ground clearance, power steering and a semi-automatic transmission. Due to the fantastic ride of the DS it proved to be a successful rally car, where it was able to maintain amazingly high speeds on poor surfaces. The DS won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1959 and again in 1966, after the disqualification of the BMC Mini-Cooper team. In the 1000 Lakes Rally, Pauli Toivonen drove a DS19 to victory in 1962. The DS was voted 5th in Automobile Magazine’s “100 Coolest Cars” in 2005. It was also named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers. First registered on 28th July 1965, this delightful ID version has had only 3 owners from new, the first being French, before the car found its way to Belgium where it currently resides. The ID is offered with 12 years of maintenance history, and notably the hydraulic system has been been overhauled. Finished in white with a contrasting red interior, this Citroen is a fantastically stylish, comfortable classic which can be used and enjoyed every day.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1979 Mazda RX7 – one owner from new Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: 539851 Year: 1979 Make: Mazda Model: RX7 The Mazda RX-7 is a sports car that was produced by the Japanese automaker Mazda from 1978 to 2002. The first RX-7 featured a 1,146 cc (69.9 cu in) twin-rotor Wankel rotary engine and a front-midship, rear-wheel drive layout. The RX-7 replaced the RX-3, with both models sold in Japan as the Mazda Savanna. The original RX-7 was a sports car with pop-up headlamps. The compact and lightweight Wankel rotary engine is situated slightly behind the front axle, a configuration marketed by Mazda as “front mid-engine”. It was offered as a two-seat coupé, with optional “occasional” rear seats in Japan, Australia, the United States, and other parts of the world. The rear seats were initially marketed as a dealer-installed option for the North American markets. The RX-7 made Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best list five times. 811,634 RX-7s were produced. This incredible first generation example has had only one private owner, and is offered with 25,000 miles recorded from new. We have fully documented history going back to 1979, when the car was delivered by Milroy Mazda, Catskill, New York. The RX7 is supplied with its original bill of sale, payment receipt, all associated maintenance and instruction books, many service invoices, service reports and original brochures. The car was always been garage stored and only used in ideal weather conditions, as such it has never been repainted. The interior is equally lovely, with little signs of any wear. The chassis and bodywork were protected by a tectyl/wax treatment from new, so as you can imagine are in fantastic order. A truly exceptional car and fabulous opportunity for the Mazda enthusiast.

1968 Porsche 911”L”

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1968 Porsche 911”L” Reg. Number: EU Taxes Paid Chassis Number: 11805973 Year: 1968 Make: Porsche Model: 911 L Only produced for one year, the 911 L was introduced in 1968. The L is the name stood for ‘Late mode’. Featuring the same 130 horsepower as the original 911, the 911L was the most expensive of the 911s since the 911S wasn’t available in the US in 1968. Only a total of 449 911L’s were ever produced, and they all featured production dates after October 1967. Unfortunately, all of this led to both engineering and mechanical failures in the transmission and front suspension. Stuttgart, Germany engineers re-engineered the problem areas and constructed the remaining 449 vehicles and then released them for sale. Considered to be a very rare find, the 1968 Porsche 911L came with a soft rear window targa. The 911L joined the updated 911 range in 1967 which later would include the T and S models. Now featured standard 5 speed transmission the original came with a 1991cc air-cooled engine. A semi-automatic version was introduced in 1968. The top speed of the Porsche 911L was 131 mph. The Porsche 911L coupe 2.0 was considered to be a tuned-down US version of the Euro S model to achieve US emissions standards. Finished in Gemini Blue metallic with a black leatherette interior, this is a nice driving 911L with the matching numbers 130bhp engine and 5 speed gearbox. A rare car, and with good investment potential for the future.

1981 Ford Capri 2.8 RS Turbo

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1981 Ford Capri 2.8 RS Turbo Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: WFOCXXGAECBC 37532 Year: 1981 Make: Ford Model: Capri 2.8 RS Turbo From July 1981 to September 1982, German RS dealers marketed a limited edition, Zakspeed inspired, left-hand drive only, ‘Werksturbo’ model capable of 220 km/h (137 mph). Based on the 3.0 S, this derivative featured widened Series X bodywork, front and rear ‘Ford Motorsport’ badged spoilers, deep 7.5j four-spoked RS alloy wheels and an RS badged engine. The engine was based on a normally aspirated carburetor equipped 2.8-litre Cologne V6, Ford Granada (Europe) engine using electronic ignition, a tuftrided crankshaft, heavy duty head gaskets and oil pump, an oil cooler and a single Garrett T4 turbocharger providing 5.4 psi of boost, a limited slip differential, Bilstein dampers all around, an anti dive kit, uprated RS anti roll bars and single rear leaf springs, the engine put out 188 Hp at 5500rpm. Figures of around 200 produced examples are common, but numbered transmission tunnels possibly indicate 155 conversions were made. Only 155 LHD 2.8 RS turbo Capri`s were built by Ford Cologne from July 1981 until September 1982 and they were only available through Ford´s German RS dealers. Today they are very much sought after and a recently fully restored example like the one on offer today, is without doubt an opportunity not to be missed. Presented in olive green with the masculine flared wheel arches and black interior, it looks as good today as it did in the early 1980s when first manufactured. The car received a thorough restoration in 2016 by using only correct original Ford parts. It has resided in 2 single marque collections since 1999 and definitely is one of the very best available on the market. Coming with German paperwork, this rare collectors’ item is presented in superb condition.

1994 Porsche 911 type 993 Turbo

Description: 1994 Porsche 911 type 993 Turbo Reg. Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: WPO22299273371090 Year: 1994 Make: Porsche Model: 911 Type 993 Turbo 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 993 Turbo coupé was released in 1995. It featured a new turbocharged engine displacing 3.6 liters and producing 408 PS. Twin turbochargers and air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals were used. The 993 Turbo was the first 911 Turbo with all wheel drive, finally delivering Porsche 959 performance as a production car. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to any of the previous production Turbos. In connection with two catalytic converters and an on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, it also made the 993 Turbo the cleanest sports car at its time. The Turbo’s bodywork differs from the Carrera body by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper moldings, and a fixed rear wing housing the intercoolers. New 18-inch alloy wheels with weight-reducing hollow spokes were standard. This lovely example is presented in dark blue with black leather interior and comes with cruise control, xenon lights and a sunroof. These are very much sought after models of this marque and this is no exception.

1971 Citroën Méhari

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1971 Citroën Méhari Reg. Number: TBA Chassis Number: 9000419 Year: 1971 Make: Citroen Model: Mehari Almost certainly inspired by BMC’s Mini Moke, the Citroën Méhari first appeared in prototype form in 1967 and like its British counterpart was based on a standard production car. In the Citroën’s case it was the Dyane 6 version of the inimitable 2CV, so the Méhari featured the latter’s torsion-bar suspension and air-cooled 602cc twin-cylinder engine driving the front wheels. The open body was made of ABS plastic and, like the Moke, a detachable soft-top and side screens served as weather protection. Taking its name from a type of Camel known for its speed, the Méhari was launched at the Paris Auto Show in October 1968 and would remain in the range for the next 20 years, only disappearing when 2CV production ceased in France in 1988, by which time a total of 144,953 had been made. The Méhari you see here is an original car which has been imported into Belgium and was the welcome recipient of a restoration 4 years ago, which is supported by a file of restoration history. As testament to the quality of work, the Mehari was exhibited for 6 months at the C42 museum in Paris. Méharis are a true expression of the sense of freedom we enjoyed the 1960s and 70s, and this excellent example none more so. The perfect way to enjoy the summer, which is only just around the corner!
