Foreword

After our debut last year, we’re delighted to return to the NEC for the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show Sale. It promises to be a spectacular end to what has been a very exciting and successful year for Silverstone Auctions. During the year we’ve continued to bring great service to both buyers and vendors alike, achieving some record-breaking results along the way and even raising over £165,000 for BBC Children in Need. However, this weekend’s event promises to be our biggest auction ever, reflected by the fact that it will be held over two days in order to accommodate more than 90 classic cars and motorcycles. What’s more, we have also brought together a wonderful collection of automobillia and lifestyle goods, including rare watches and fine wines for you to enjoy. But it’s not just the sheer number of lots we’re offering that’s impressive, as the eclectic mix and quality of models too. From motoring icons to modern wonders, we’ve secured vehicles to meet a wealth of tastes. It’s always a joy to be at the UK’s biggest classic car show and I look forward to meeting many fellow enthusiasts here. Our sale is your opportunity to secure the car of your dreams and be part of the heart of the action. Whatever catches your eye, please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of the team who will be more than happy to assist you in any query you may have.

Managing Director, Silverstone Auctions

1967 Austin Mini Cooper S MkI Registration: KRS 598F Chassis Number: C-A2S7-1012010A Engine Number: 9F-SA-Y45891

NEC Classic Motor Show Sale

Estimate (£): No Reserve First introduced in 1959, the Mini is the most famous small car in the world. The inventor, Sir Alec Issigonis, and friend, John Cooper, could both see the potential of the car in competition and their joint vision lead to the Morris Mini Cooper first appearing in 1961. Their development and evolution eventually led to the Austin Mini Cooper S appearing in 1963, and they went on to claim world-wide success in both rallying and racing with the versatile and nimble Mini. The Cooper S’s iconic appeal as a sportier version of the Mini was specifically underlined by its success at the Monte Carlo Rally in 1964, 1965 and 1967, as well as its appearance in the 1967 British film, ‘The Italian Job’, in which Minis and Mini Coopers play a key role in a bank heist. Built 8th May 1967, this Mk1 Austin Mini cooper S was delivered new to Aberdeen motors. It was purchased in 1980 by our vendor and used sparingly for just 1 year as

a show car (being taken to many local classic car events). The car was laid away in the garage in immaculate and believed original condition showing just 36,335 miles. Fate would then mean that the car would not turn a wheel for a further 32 years! As time went by, more and more items were placed in the garage until the mini was barely visible. It was then rediscovered recently and saw daylight once again for the first time since the 1980s. Unfortunately, when it left the garage the Mini was not in the same condition as when it entered. A leak in the garage roof had been slowly dripping on to the car running down the rain gutters down the A-pillars and eventually coming to rest in the sills and footwells which of course now need attention. Due to this, damp has affected the interior of the car and dashboard panel as well. Since being pulled from its long term resting place the brakes have been freed and the engine we are told was started on the key and does run with no knocks or smoke however the clutch is believed to be seized and we would recommend inspection of the engine as well. Offered without reserved, this is a superb untouched example of the rare and highly desirable MkI Cooper S that is now prime for a loving restoration to return the car back to its once show condition.

The MGB hardly needs any introduction, after all it is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary this year. Introduced in 1962, the ‘B’ refined the strides made by the outgoing MGA. Sporting the robust and easily tuneable 97 bhp BMC B series engine and a four speed gear box, the MGB soon became a favourite amongst the sporting fraternity. It gave them access to a “middle ground” between the small ‘Spridgets’ and the “hairy chested “ Big Healeys. This is an exceptional MG B GT having had the benefit of a total ground up restoration to build the ultimate MGB GT from 2005/6 and has covered just 4,800 miles since. The car has had no expense spared during its restoration and has been built on a brand new heritage shell including bonnet, boot and doors. The interior is similarly finished to a high standard including sports seats and sparco harnesses. The engine, which has been w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

totally rebuilt with new parts including crank, balance conrods, pistons, gas flowed head, big racing valves, racing valve springs and pushrods, lightened flywheel, 45 twin choke weber, full 718 kent cam, race exhaust manifold, and large peco exhaust. The engine features hardened valve seats so runs on unleaded fuel. New brakes, master cylinder and clutch have also been fitted along with having the gearbox rebuilt with overdrive on 3rd and 4th. The suspension has also benefitted from restoration and been rebuilt with polyurethane bushes all round, rear parabolic race springs, lowered gas shocks, negative camber lower antiroll arms and larger front anti-roll bars. The body and mechanicals were not the only areas to receive attention and the car now has a new fuel tank, wiring loom, new glass and a chrome bumper conversion with new Minilator anthracite wheels. All this work has been carried out to a high specification and standard with top quality components and receipts for close to £14,000 excluding the cost of the shell, body pannels and painting costs! Stored and covered in a heated garage, not used in the wet and having covered just 400 miles in the last 12 months, this is a great MGB GT which deserves to be used and enjoyed!

This stylish and iconic 1976 Ford Capri MKII 1600L is a credit to its owner. Resplendent in White with a Black vinyl roof, it has been owned by this proud Club Member since September 2007 purchased, as it was, with just 18,089 miles on the clock. It was recently MoT’d with just 20,654 genuine miles recorded. Records show the Capri was first registered on 15/12/1976 and purchased from Broadway Motors of Wantage by Mr D Austin. In January 1978 it was sold to a Mr F. Southam for £2,445 and bought from R C Woods Car Sales of Hounslow, with 13,764 miles on the clock. From this time to November 1993 the Capri had only covered 4,200 miles, with Mr Southam still the owner. There is no history from November 1993 MoT which recorded 17,964 miles until November 2007 MoT, which recorded 18,099 miles. Our vendor had no reason to believe this was not genuine due to the condition of the car meaning it had travelled just 135 miles in 14 years and had apparently been garaged all that time.

The 911 Carrera 3.0 litre was produced for just 2 years, 1976 and 1977, bringing together several elements from some of their best previous cars. It used the same die cast aluminium crank-case of the famous 2.7 RS Carrera, but the same 3.0 engine as the new 911 Turbo, which had then just been introduced. Only 3687 cars in total were built worldwide, of which just 1123 were Targa’s, and only a very small number of those were produced in right hand drive. This car was supplied by AFN of Isleworth on the 1st January 1976 as a right hand drive UK 1976 model 3.0 Carrera Targa to Mr. Peter Agg of Trojan Works in Croydon Surrey. (who built the original McLaren race cars)

w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

It was first supplied as a ‘Sportomatic’ and finished in Diamond Silver, but much later changed to a 5 speed manual gearbox and re-painted in Porsche ‘6801’ Grey, the same colour as all Steve Mcqueen’s Porsche’s of the period. In the late 90’s the car was bought by Mr. Gordon Webb and then owned by him, and various members of his family for the next decade, until being purchased by our vendor- who had known the car and it’s original history from new. It was apparently restored by Autofarm in 1998 prior to purchase by Mr. Webb and has certainly been fastidiously maintained throughout it’s life and 90,000 mile history. The history file contains bills and receipts for extensive maintenance every year dating back to 2001 and the original owners pack and maintenance guide provides some earlier main dealer history. The mileage appears genuine and corrolates to the ownership history, although it is not warranted. The car was re-painted by our fastidious vendor about 12 months ago and is presented fresh from a recent service and MOT. The car is now ready to use and enjoy, drives extremely well and represents a rare version of a truly iconic car that will remain highly sought after and collectable.

Mercedes-Benz introduced the R107 series in 1972 and built the car until 1989. This was the period where Mercedes-Benz build quality was very superior to just about every other brand on the market and the 500 SL was their ultimate soft top flagship in the mid 1980’s, frequently resulting in a 3 to 5 year waiting list. Finished in Manganese Brown with full Nappa Safron leather, this original right hand drive 500 SL was first registered in 1982 and exported to Jersey for just 3 years, returning on the 25-10-1985. First registered to Constable Ian Skipper O.B.E, it has had only 3 owners from new, the second for 27 years. It was supplied with the important factory options of leather upholstery, rear seats, air conditioning and cruise control. It presents very well today and has subsequently had a discreet JVC unit fitted, which allows a hands free bluetooth telephone connection, as well as an MP3 player and w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

I-Pod connection. In addition a Clifford G5 650 CAT 1 alarm and immobiliser have been fitted, as well as both a factory hard top (and hoist) and outdoor cockpit cover which are both available with the car. Alloy wheels, front fog lights, top tint windscreen and headlamp wash/wipe were all standard but the subtle additon of a later wind deflector and park distance control front and rear are useful add-ons. The comprehensive history file confirms the current mileage of just 31,000-an average of just over 1,000 miles per annum-and the car comes to the sale with a current MOT until 25/02/2014. In summary a great car in outstanding condition from a fantastic era of MercedesBenz engineering, that is already becoming recognised as a genuine classic of the future.

After years of producing stylish special-bodied Fiatbased coupés and sedans, Abarth introduced 595 and 695 as a baby rear-engine Fiat 500. When compared to the production version, you will note the 595 was virtually identical except for the logo, badge on the radiator grille and the coat-of-arms on both sides of the car. Like all Abarths, the key differences are found in the mechanical upgrades that pushed its top speed to over 90mph. The two cylinders were ‘siamesed’ in special cast iron, the exhaust pipes leading up to it were polished, the valve-springs were upgraded and specially designed pistons and camshaft fitted. Further modifications were made to the original piston rods and crankshaft. The original carburettor was increased in size and an Abarth

Karl Abarth, later known as Carlo Abarth, was born in Austria. He created a small manufacturing empire in Italy during the 1950s building performance exhaust systems and parts for Fiats and other European makes. Carlo adopted his Scorpio birth sign as the logo for his company. He soon evolved into a car manufacturer in his own right. Fiat most often supplied the body shells or partly completed cars, which Abarth modified. The Fiat/Abarth arrangement benefited both concerns since it resulted in the many class victories that his cars captured in competition.

Lot 310 >> 1960 Ford Thunderbird

The Thunderbird entered production for the 1955 model year as a sporty two-seat convertible. Unlike the Chevrolet Corvette, it was not marketed as a sports car. Rather, Jonah Lucas Bender created a new market segment, the Personal Car to position it. It’s amazing how many details can be overlooked in history, and the large folder containing the complete history of the ‘Bird’ proves a prime example.

By late 1969, and having covered only 36,605 miles, it was considered and ‘Old-Bird’ and laid to rest at the Hoffmans’ residence and didn’t get resurrected until 1980. Sporting a fresh re-paint it was entered into the Vintage Thunderbird Club of America Concours Awards in 1982, now showing 40,461 miles on the clock, and scored 287 points out of 300.

The fifth generation SL was in production between 2002 and 2008 and featured the all-new retractable hardtop - perfect for those British showers! Ardent MercedesBenz followers raved about the stability of the car with the hard-top in place and the ease at which they could remove it. Such was its success, the SL is still one of the leading cars in the MB range. This car from 2002 is a lefthand drive variant featuring the very capable 5.0L 302hp V8 powerplant mated to a standard auto gearbox. It has travelled just 40,00miles (showing 64,000Kms) and has more than eight UK MoT’s. Despite being lefthand drive, it has been UK registered certainly since 2005, being used by our vendor at his home in Nice yet maintained through his own mechanics in the UK each year. The Vendor is the owner of one of the most distinguished single-seat race teams outside Formula One. Regrettably, no official MB w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

It is presented in a very pleasing colour scheme with private registration and to be sold Without Reserve. Don’t let it get away...

The Porsche 944 S was first introduced in 1987 as a 2.5 litre 16 valve giving 189 bhp. But, it was the introduction of the 944 S2 in 1989 when things got more interesting with their all-new 3.0 dual overhead cam, 16 valve, 4-cylinder engine giving 211 bhp. This was combined with the smoother bodywork of the Turbo model creating a good looking car that drove extremely well and received excellent press.

The 124 Sport Spider was marketed by Fiat between 1966 and 1980 having debuted at the November 1966 Turin Motor Show. Designed and manufactured by Italian carrozzeria Pininfarina, more specifically by Sergio Pininfarina. Sergio used the already available designs of the Chevrolet Corvette ‘Rondine’ and Ferrari 275 GTS. The four-cylinder engine was designed by Dan Varo and used in the Spider and Coupé was a double overhead cam, aluminium cross-flow head version of the sedan’s pushrod unit. It started in 1966 with a capacity of 1438cc, progressively increasing to 1608cc in 1970, 1756cc in 1974 and finally 1995cc in 1979. The double overhead cam version was the first mass manufactured DOHC to utilise reinforced rubber timing belts, an innovation that would come into nearly universal use in the decades after its introduction. Uprated versions powered race cars such as the Fiat w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

131 Mirafiori, Special T, Lancia Beta Montecarlo, Delta Integrale and many others. This right-hand drive Spider was exported from the United States in the 1990s and converted from a US spec car to a Euro, non-emission regulated, example. Described by the vendor as in rust-free condition, the ‘scaffold pole’ bumpers were removed, new suspension fitted and new clutch. In addition, the interior benefits from a recent re-trim in leather and the bodywork from a recent respray. The owner is only selling the car as he has covered 1,000 miles since it was imported. He does state that second gear synchro is weak but has not attended to it as he rather enjoys double de-clutching. Finished in a lovely colour combination of black with beige leather interior, this little Fiat offers mini-Ferrari styling and Italian flair on a budget.

It is becoming hard to find DB7s that have been cared for by private owners and serviced correctly. However, this example has it all and represents a true undervalued British Grand Tourer that will provide its next owner with many more years of pleasure.

Complete with a full service history from new with all service stamps in the service book, the car also boasts 18” alloy wheels, heated front seats/Windscreen and Tracker. It was purchased by the previous owner from Murray Aston Martin in Edinburgh in June 2004 with 30,750 miles showing on the odometer. The car was purchased by the current owner with 44,700 miles on the odometer in February 2012 and has covered a mere 1,762 since.

Porsche introduced the 912 in 1965 as the successor to the 356; it had all the modernity of the 911 and trusted mechanics of the outgoing 356. In 1966 it actually outsold the 911 worldwide but the UK was slow to acknowledge the great handling and looks as the USA market couldn’t get enough. This has become significant as the comparatively low numbers sold in the UK means that today we have to look to the US to satisfy prospective European owners of this ‘cult classic’.

Finished in Guards Red with new black interior, this 912 is restored to a very good standard. Also fitted is the factory option 5-speed dog-leg gearbox and five dial dash. The history file contains a lot of hand written accounts by Duane Spencer and catalogues the expenditure lavished on this pretty 912. It also contains a recent invoice showing an engine rebuild and new clutch amounting to over £6,000 and comes with an MOT until April 2014.

Offered here is an original US car that was owned by Duane Spencer, the author of ‘The Complete Porsche 912 Guide’. As the title suggest, it’s a very comprehensive guide (copy included) and offers a good, informative read for a prospective buyer.

As the price of early 911s continues to rise, the 912 version represents a realistic alternative with ‘icon status’ and superior handling to match.

The appeal of the Series One to enthusiasts is down to its purity of design and its relative rarity. It was also built before British Leyland began influencing Jaguar’s activities so product quality is considered to be better. This best-of-breed Series One Daimler Sovereign has recently been the subject of a total restoration by a specialist company to a truly superb standard.

When the Porsche 964 when introduced in 1989 it was 85% different to the outgoing 911. The design incorporated more integral bumpers and a host of mechanical changes, most significant was the introduction of four wheel drive. The displacement was now up to 3600cc producing 250bhp. Power steering and ABS brakes were now fitted as standard. The torsion bar rear suspension was replaced with coil springs and shock absorbers. Such was the success that in the five years of production over 62,000 left the factory.

it has an MOT until August 2014. The mileage is only 99,297kms which converts to approximately 61,000 miles. As Porsche 964 variants continue to rise in value this low-mileage, fantastic condition Carrera 2 makes a very attractive candidate for the collector or to be enthusiastically driven as they represent a great driving experience.

The Porsche 964 Carrera 2 was surprisingly the only 911 the factory badged as such. Offered here in Guards Red with black leather interior is a beautiful LHD example.

AK Sportscars of Peterborough began in the mid 1980’s when two friends, who both had a passion for fine cars, got together. They had the ability to expertly design, mould and craft chassis-up replicas of AC Cobras . The car offered here today is perhaps one of the finest they have ever created. Registered in 2007, the body parts for this car had actually been crafted some three years earlier. This resulted in them being perfectly settled and this also meant that, when painted, the finish of the Iris Blue paint to the panels was impeccable and the usual waviness that you often see on painted fibreglass was not present. With contrasting Sutton Silver Le Mans stripes and that characterful poised look that Cobras so wonderfully accomplish, this car really is something to behold....and that’s before you’ve even heard it!

1969 MG C Roadster Registration: TLJ 986H Chassis Number: GCN1 8955G Engine Number: RUH 4600 Estimate (£): 17,000 - 20,000

The MGC was a 2912cc, straight-6 version of the MGB sold from 1967 and produced through to August 1969. In the twin SU carburettor form used in the MGC, the engine produced 145bhp at 5250rpm. The body shell needed considerable revision from it’s predecessor around the engine bay and to the floor pan, but externally the only differences were a distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a teardrop for carburettor clearance. It had different brakes from the MGB, 15 inch wheels, a lower geared rack and pinion and special torsion bar suspension with telescopic dampers. Like the MGB, it was available as a coupé and roadster. An overdrive gearbox or threespeed automatic gearbox were available as options. The car was capable of 120 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 10.0 seconds.

The interior leather seats are in good condition and the overdrive is functioning correctly. Wet weather can be avoided with a lovely Mohair hood that is in as new condition. In addition, a recent new stainless exhaust system allows for a fruity exhaust note to resonate when on the move.

Bristol Cars launched the Beaufighter in 1980, named after the World War II bomber aircraft manufactured by the Bristol Aeroplane Company, which turned to motor vehicle production at the end of the War. Bristol cars retain the exclusivity, rarity and welcome unpretentiousness their owners prefer compared to the somewhat ostentatious offerings of their competitors. Despite this claim, at launch, the Beaufighter was the fastest four-seater convertible in the world and one of the first turbo charged cars of the 1980s. In keeping with its aircraft heritage all body panels are in aluminium and the car was painstakingly hand-built at Filton, Bristol, in the shadow of Concorde’s birthplace. Of just 20 Beaufighters produced few have the desirable removable targa roof section, although all vehicles have the convertible Coupé de Ville folding rear section some with a hard top option in addition. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

E536 AGJ was first registered in 1987 as one of the last cars produced. It has four previous owners and genuine confirmed mileage of 85,000.

Work includes, repaint, new battery, new alternator, new rapid starter motor, replacement Bosch fans, new carburettor and turbo assembly, new tyres, replacement rear hood, refurbished headlining and leather interior, new carpets throughout, new additional rear silencer for quieter running and there are substantial servicing and maintenance invoices from Bristol Cars and American Car Care, London; Specialists in Bristol vehicles.

Ford Cosworth engines powered fourteen of the Formula1 cars on the grid but they both agreed it would be nice to see a Ford saloon winning again, especially a Sierra. It was not until the summer of 1983 when Turner was conducting a tour for Ford USA personnel around Cosworth Engineering in Northampton, highlighting the Grand Prix DFY engine, that the ‘moment’ emerged. He noticed a 16-valve Sierra motor Cosworth had developed privately. The decision thereafter to use a turbo was crucial as it would power the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth to total dominance in European Touring cars and in other motorsport events around the world. Turbocharging left BMW and Mercedes vying at best for class wins, importantly Ford w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

Sierras were first over the finishing line. Cosworth was founded by Mike Costin and Keith Duckworth and is most famous for the design and introduction of the Cosworth DFV Formula One engine. In June 1967, Graham Hill put a Lotus Cosworth on pole at Zandvoort. Somewhat dryly, at a earlier test at Snetterton, he had proclaimed it to ‘have some poke’! Jim Clark gave the Cosworth engine its maiden win at that Dutch Grand Prix. The Cosworth DFV would dominate Formula One for over fifteen years. Fords investment in Cosworth was a masterstroke and started one of the most successful brand partnerships in motorsport. Offered here is the sixth production Sierra Cosworth which was the sole transport of co-founder Mike Costin for many years. Most appropriately, it has resided in the reception area of Cosworth for nearly fifteen years. It has covered only 63,500 miles, is completely standard and even retains an original mild steel exhaust. Naturally, this is a very significant Sierra RS Cosworth and comes with all previous logbook types endorsing the ownership and a letter of authenticity from Cosworth. Silverstone Auctions are proud to have the opportunity to be involved with the sale of this fantastic Sierra RS Cosworth, a car that truly spawned and defined touring car racing in the eighties. Because of its associated history, this Sierra RS Cosworth represents ‘real genetics’ and must be the pinnacle road RS Cosworth. SilverstoneAuc tions

Introduced to the press in 1990 as ‘The fastest 4 door saloon in the world’, the Vauxhall Lotus Carlton was hand-assembled at Hethel by Lotus with unique chassis, brakes, steering and engine upgrades. The original 3000cc 24 valve straight six engine was handbuilt by Lotus and taken out to 3615cc and fitted with twin Garrett T25 turbochargers, a Behr intercooler, a unique strengthened block, steel crankshaft, Lotus con-rods and Mahle slipper pistons. The six speed ZF transmission was lifted from the GM Corvette of the day and the limited slip diff from the GM Holden Commodore V8. All this combined to give a 0-60mph in just over 5 seconds, an astonishing 0-100mph in 11 secs and a top speed of 177mph.

1961 Ford GT40 Replica Registration: UJA 263 Chassis Number: FS/1/61 Engine Number: 302c70-700k292 Estimate (£): 41,000 - 46,000

The Ford GT40 is one of the greatest race cars from one of the greatest racing periods. The 1960’s were the time of the famous Ford-Ferrari wars at Le Mans and in the World Sports Car championship, and purportedly, the GT40’s existence arose out of Ford’s desire and then failure to purchase Ferrari. What ensued is one of the greatest motorsport battles of all time between Ferrari, who had won Le Mans six consecutive times (1960-1965), and Ford, who then won Le Mans four consecutive times (1966-1969), proving that they too could compete at an international level. Consequently, given the cars’ competition pedigree and beautiful styling, these cars are worth well over a million dollars today. As a result, high quality dimensionally accurate recreations that employ original type Ford power plants are an affordable and enjoyable way to experience one of the all-time great cars. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

We are informed by the vendor that this incredible GT40 reincarnation built over a three year period from 1984 to 1987 is an exact replica of the 1966 MK 1 Le Mans winning GT40 and is painted in Gulf racing livery. We are informed that this car is built to the highest standard and all panels are made from the original moulds. It can be used as a competition car but we are informed it is also a very capable road car. Whether it’s trundling through small villages with that fabulous exhaust noise echoing off stonework or pressing out on the open road, it’s an incredible experience and an exclusive one at that. Sold with an MoT and Tax until August 2014, this car really does offer the meanest, leanest, hardest and fastest road experience ever. Silly though it is, no matter what else you’ve driven in your life, when you sit in that awkward to get into, bum-on-the-floor cockpit and stare out over the delicate swell of blue and orange, your first thought could be “#!?# me, I’m in a Gulf GT40!”

1958 Aston Martin DB2/4 MKIII Registration: VBT 512 Chassis Number: AM30031542 Engine Number: DBA1192 Estimate (£): 150,000 - 170,000

The DB 2/4 Mk III (normally simply called DB Mk III, even at the time of its introduction) is a sports car sold by Aston Martin from 1957 through 1959. It was an evolution of the DB2/4 Mk II model it replaced, developing that car’s W.O. Bentley-designed Lagonda 2.9L straight-6 engine, redesigned by Tadek Marek. Changes included a grille like that on the DB3S, a new instrument panel, and Girling disc brakes. The hydraulically operated clutch was new as well, and an optional Laycock-de Normanville overdrive, which was attached to the STD 4 speed gearbox after the 1st 100 cars. Worm-and-sector steering and a live axle rear end were carry overs. The standard DBA engine model with twin SU carburettors produced 162hp, though an optional dualexhaust system (a claimed 16 bhp increase) raised this w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

to a reputed 178hp. Thus equipped, the car could reach 60 mph in 9.3 seconds and hit 120 mph. An optional high-output DBB engine with three twin-choke Weber 35 DCO 3 carburettors, special long duration camshafts, high compression 8.6:1 pistons and the dual-exhaust system boasted 195hp, though this was rarer (just 10 cars thus equipped) than the mid-level DBD option with triple SU 1.75” carbs and 180hp also with the dual exhaust system, fitted to 47 cars. We are delighted to be able to offer this exquisite DB 2/4 MkIII for the first time since purchased new in 1958. Charles Sidney Ltd supplied “VBT 512” to our vendors’ late father on the 21st May 1958. The original invoice reads “To one Aston Martin DB Mark 111 Saloon finished in Peony with White Gold Upholstery, and fitted with Overdrive and Twin Exhaust system” for the sum of £3,242 19 shillings and 6p, which included 15 gallons of petrol at £3.12 and 6p. This one family owned Aston Martin has been meticulously maintained throughout its life. So much so that in the early 60’s it underwent a bare metal re-spray to Gold due to the original Peony paintwork blistering. There is simply not enough space in our catalogue to detail the huge history file that accompanies it, but rest assured it could fill a library. SilverstoneAuc tions

This particular Ferrari F355 Berlinetta, finished in the timeless Rosso Corsa with Crema interior, was delivered new on the 22/09/94 and as such is one of the desirable early models. It is presented in fantastic condition and shows just 46,000 miles. The car has remained in factory specification, having never received any modifications unlike so many of its counterparts.

The Ferrari F355 is a modern classic, so beautiful, so well-engineered and so well received that it marked the beginning of the end of the old-guard ‘Ferraristi’ philosophy that the only “real” Ferraris were ones with 12-cylinder engines. The Ferrari F355 Berlinetta and Targa GTS burst onto the world stage in the spring of 1994.

The increasingly rare and attractive Fiat 2400 Dino Coupé was assembled alongside the Ferrari 246 Dino at Maranello with both cars receiving the same engine. Ferrari had needed to produce 500 units to homologate their engines for F2 racing so an agreement was reached with Fiat to create three cars, a Ferrari Dino 206, a coupé and a spider. The initial capacity of the road going V6 engine was 1987cc but this was later increased to 2418cc which was used in the Fiat 2400 Dino and Ferrari 246 GT. The same engine was given to Lancia who installed it in the legendary Stratos.

Jaguar introduced the E-Type in March 1961 to worldwide acclaim. By May of that year, it had won its first race held at Oulton Park driven by Graham Hill. Success on road and track was to continue right up to 1974, with over 70,000 E-Types eventually produced in Coventry.

The 27 MOTs that accompany the car indicate that most of the car’s use was in its first 5 years; in fact in the last 34 years it has only done 23,778 miles. Presented in its original colour combination of Signal Red with Biscuit interior, the car is very original throughout (although the stowage box was professionally modified in 1996 to accommodate two seats). We are informed by the vendor that it drives well with no known faults. The current owner has spared no expense in maintenance.

NEC Classic Motor Show Sale

Estimate (£): 32,000 - 36,000

The first small Mercedes SL model was introduced in 1954 - the 190SL. The 190SL was aimed at a similar market as today’s SLK model and had pretty styling modelled on the larger 300SL model. The 190SL shared many of its components with the 190 saloon range including the 1897cc straight four engine. Unlike the saloon the 190SL benefitted from having twin-carbs which helped produce a top speed of 105mph. Most of the cars built had open roadster bodies although a small number of coupes were also produced. A factory hardtop was offered as an option as with this example, along with servo brakes (which were standard from 1956) and many other items.

HMRC letter confirms that all European taxes and duties have been paid on this vehicle. According to the original Japanese registration document, this 190SL was first registered in Japan in 1988. It is the owner’s belief that the car was restored around this time. Consequently, the car is showing some signs of its age but is running and shows no signs of obvious corrosion to the body. The boot floor and engine bay are also solid and it would seem that with a small amount of cosmetic love, this car could be brought up to a very high standard. Alternatively, it could be enjoyed as a useable classic in its current guise. We would urge any potential bidders to contact Silverstone Auctions for a fair and honest description of this vehicle prior to the sale. 190SLs in this condition are a rare find, as restored examples push towards and beyond the £100,000 mark.

This 190SL was discovered by the current owner in Japan earlier this year and imported back to Europe in July. The car had been stored as part of a large private collection in a temperature controlled environment. An w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

Mercedes have been producing an SL (Sport Leicht) model or range of models since 1954 when the landmark 300SL was unveiled. The similarly styled, but mechanically unrelated, 190 followed in 1955, completing the first generation of cars. The second generation SLs began with the 230 of 1963. It was distinguished by its lower waistline, big curved screens and a distinctive optional hardtop that earned the model its nickname, ‘Pagoda’. Over its nine years of production, the second generation SL’s engine grew in capacity from 2.3 litres (230SL) to 2.5 litres (250SL) and finally to 2.8 litres (280SL). The larger, third generation SL was launched in 1971, initially with just a 3.5-litre V8 engine (350SL) mated to four-speed automatic transmission. The car featured a two-door monocoque bodyshell with independent suspension all round - double wishbone and coil springs at the front and semi-trailing arms and coil springs at the rear. The power w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

assisted steering was Daimler-Benz’s own recirculating ball system. Braking was by discs all round - ventilated on the front. The range grew to two models when the 4.5 litre V8 (450SL) derivative arrived the following year and to three when the 2.8 litre straight-six (280SL) appeared in mainland Europe during 1974. The latter became available in the UK from October 1980 and remained in production until 1985, when it was replaced by the 300SL. Present here in excellent condition is a British supplied right hand drive 1985 convertible with original hard top. Showing a believed genuine 65,000 miles with MOTs to match. It shows signs of little use having spent much of its life in the Isle of White. Waxoiled when new the car has needed no rust treatment over the years due to its conveted life. It has however, in the last 12 months, benefitted from £4,000 investment including; new discs and pads, all oils and filters (engine, gearbox and axle), new dampers and wheel refurbishments. Period Blaupunkt radio and period wiper blades were fitted along with new headlight reflectors and is presented as it left the factory in 1985.

The 550 Spyder successor, the RSK (718) arrived in 1957 and continued with great success in motorsport events around the world. The Chamonix 550 Spyder is regarded as the closest replica to the real thing. It has a tubular chassis and coil-over suspension that make for incredible handling. The additional power from the 2.0litre injection engine makes it a very quick sportscar.

Porsche’s first attempt at building a race car was the 550 Spyder. It was powered by their Carrera 1500cc quadcam flat four engine and it soon gained a reputation of a ‘’Giant Killer’’ with just a modest 115bhp. In 1956 an evolution of the Spyder won the Targa Floria. During September 1955 one of the first ninety 550 Spyders (Vin 550 - 0055) would be immortalised in history when James Dean, actor and budding race driver collided with Donald Turnupseed on his way to the Salinas Road Race. The trans-axle was removed from the wreck and is still owned in the USA, the bodywork of ‘’Little Bastard’’ toured the States as a macabre reminder to speeding motorists.

1967 was a banner year for Ferrari as it introduced the mid-engine 330 P4, a renowned V12 endurance car meant to replace the previous year’s P3. Only four Ferrari P4-engined cars were ever made: one P3/4 and three 330 P4s. Their 3-valve cylinder head was modelled after Italian Grand Prix-winning Formula One cars. To this was added the same fuel injection system from the P3 for an output of up to 450bhp. Due to the great fame, sleek appearance and absolute rarity of the original design, most of us can only aspire simply to enjoy a hand-crafted and bespoke built P4 replica, similar to the exceptional car offered here.

The third owner gave the vehicle a sympathetic ‘restoration’ by which we understand means he overhauled the engine as it had not been used for a decade and carried out a high quality exterior repaint as the original paintwork had faded. Very little bodywork repairs were needed, as unlike many of its contemporaries the majority of this vehicle had not suffered from rust.

obvious it is that this is, without doubt, one of the best surviving examples. The Devonette has been back in use since 2001, at which time it had done 4,300miles, but has been used sparingly since. It has been a regular at a host of VW enthusiast concours events where the vehicle has won numerous awards. The most important of these being ‘Best Stock Type 2’ at the leading marque event, The VolksWorld Show and ‘Best in Class’ at one of the most strict VW Concours events at Stanford Hall. Since 2001, less than 12,000 miles have been added to the odometer (this period being backed up with MoTs and receipts).

Following on from the enormous success of the Lotus Cortina MK1, Ford introduced the Lotus Cortina MkII in 1967 with the famous Lotus 1600 twin cam engine now giving 109bhp. Externally all the cars had a black front grill, 5.5J x 13 steel wheels and Lotus badges on both rear wings and by the rear numberplate. The gearbox ratios remained to 2000E spec, but the final drive was lengthened to 3.77 to 1 from 3.9 to 1 and comfort and handling improvements were made with a larger fuel tank and radial tyres. This car has recently been the subject of significant expenditure and is now ready to be enjoyed on the road or form part of any serious Lotus collection. Recent work has included completely rebuilt and balanced carburettors, resulting in a smooth engine and superb engine bay that presents very well indeed.

There are classics that have emerged, after staggeringly long periods of storage, which have a beautiful patina about them and so you have to accept the faded paint or the faded carpets, dry upholstery and burst stitching, because it would be sacrilege to “restore” it.

The mileage then was 9,199 and there is no doubt that this is the original mileage. The Buick was imported to the UK in 2011 and has been meticulously cleaned and serviced to preserve the car. A few items stuck from lack of use or hardened grease have been rectified. It attended the Stars and Stripes rally at Tatton Park this summer and won best in class. The vendor has confirmed that the 110 mile round trip was covered in comfort and near silence at motorway speeds and the car returned 22 MPG.

Although Rolls-Royce’s acquisition of Bentley Motors in 1931 robbed the latter of its independence, it did at least ensure the survival of the Bentley name. Launched in 1933, the first of what would become known as the ‘Derby Bentleys’ continued the marque’s sporting associations. The ‘Silent Sportscar’, as it was quickly dubbed, had few peers and as a tireless long-distance tourer, it combining traditional Rolls-Royce refinement with Bentley performance and handling. Based on the contemporary Rolls-Royce 20/25, the 3½ litre Bentley was slightly shorter in the wheelbase and employed a tuned, twin-SU-carburettor-equipped version of the former’s 3,669cc overhead-valve six; an increase in bore size upped the capacity to 4,257cc in 1936.

extensive work carried out throughout its life and in fine running order, this attractive Bentley sounds superb and starts on the button. Having been built on a long wheel base chassis, the car is a full four seater and has ample power from the 3,665 cc straight six engine. NSU 242 is believed to have been a museum exhibit for a number of years. It was subsequently re-commissioned and has been used regularly by the owner, who is a lifelong Bentley Drivers’ Club member. More recently, the car has competed in a number of rallies with the vendor, notably the Bentley Drivers Club North West Spring Run in 2012 and 2013, and it is ‘always admired by other motorists’. Supplied with a current MOT until March 2014 and UK registration document showing 4 previous owners since 1989, this attractive pre-war Bentley Tourer promises many more years of fine Historic open top motoring.

According to the current owner, the car was re-bodied from a 1935 Derby Saloon in the 1980s to its current ‘Le Mans’ style tourer bodywork. Described as having had w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

The Porsche 930 Turbo was a genuine ‘Supercar’ that defined the seventies and eighties. It was one of the fastest production cars available at the time. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7RS which was increased to 3.0Litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gained from Porsche’s 917/30 Can-Am program. The bodywork received special treatment to produce one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear whale-tail. The brakes came directly from the Porsche 917 race car. The final evolution of the 930 Turbo saw the engine capacity increased to 3299cc, with improved upgrades on the intercooler and fitting of the G50 transmission. By 1989, the final year of production, the power had risen to 330bhp.

Cabriolet and was registered in the UK 16/8/1988, since then it has been professionally converted to right hand drive. The vendor informs us that a RUF 930 convertion was carried out on the car by Bob Watson Porsche and engine upgraded to 3.3 Turbo approximately 14 years ago for the previous owner. Finished in it’s original colour of Grand Prix White, Blue roof, with Marine Blue leather, it shows an incredible 29,882 miles on the odometer (MOT 357446172216 02/10/2012). Documented MOT certificates and original service stamps verify the mileage from new until 2001. The current owner purchased the vehicle in 2012 and commissioned Bob Watson Porsche once again to carry out a detailed re-build and restoration of 911 NWL. No expense has been spared, as verified by the bills and receipts that total in excess of £22,000. Additionally a recent re-spray at over £4000 has completed the restoration. Now ready for a new owner to enjoy this very well sorted and restored classic car. In enhancement to the value the registration “911 NWL” remains with the vehicle.

wallet contains a service book as record of maintenance stamped to 2004. The history file contains numerous invoices from independents thereafter. The nineteen seventies 911 2.7 models are now gaining traction in the classic market and this Coupé is a very usable example with scope for improvement. The colour combination looks suitably period with nice originality, and the car represents great value today.

The success of the Porsche 911 story has been well documented especially as we celebrated its 50th Anniversary. Since its introduction the genesis of the model has been punctuated with iconic and benchmark cars. The introduction of the 911S 2.4 in 1972 set new standards but perhaps the 2.7RS remains their greatest seventies achievement. It was only natural that capacity for mainstream production should be increased to 2687cc which gave a good increase in torque to match the 150 bhp of the 911 2.7 Coupé. Impact bumpers were now required to satisfy American law and production ran from 1974 to 1977.

Lot 352 >> 1968 Alfa Romeo 1750 Berlina Saloon

This Alfa Romeo 105 series 1750 Berlina 4-door Saloon was first registered on 9th December 1968. It was sold by Union Street Motors to a Mr Leggett, a flower gardener in Somerset now in his 90s and still driving. Mr Leggett owned TYD715G for 43 years until it was purchased by the current registered keeper in 2012 with a odometer reading of just 39,000 miles. Finished in midnight blue with nutmeg interior, this Berlina saloon is a very, very rare survivor in the UK and only four are known to the AROC. The car is described by the vendor as: “in superb condition throughout, both outside and in. It provides a superb and quiet modern drive... and is possibly the best one in the UK.”

Supplied with original tools, rare front arm rest (still in original bag), immobiliser, original service history, old tax discs and a full year’s MoT, this really is a car for the discerning Alfa enthusiast. Now reading a mere 43,000 miles.

In 1967, Alfa Romeo added a new saloon model to its range, the 1750 Berlina. The Berlina was based on the existing Giulia range and used a similar bodyshell which featured four headlamps. The Berlina used a 1779cc twin-carb engine which came with a hydraulic clutch mechanism. The Berlina braking system used a twin circuit design for safety as well as a servo and disc brakes. Sales of the 1750 Berlina were very slow in the UK as the companies reputation began to suffer due to the corrosion problems. Despite low sales in the UK, Alfa managed to produce over 100,000 of the Berlina before production ended in 1972.

Lot 353 >> 2000 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage NEC Classic Motor Show Sale

Lot 353

2000 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Registration: W791 CJW Chassis Number: SCFAB1238YK300656 Engine Number: AM2/00681 Estimate (£): 25,000 - 30,000

Launched at the 1993 Geneva Salon, and thanks to styling from Keith Helfet and Ian Callum, the DB7 looked beautiful. So - it stole the show, and met with critical acclaim. But it wasn’t up to scratch in some areas such as ergonomics, build quality and engine note. As a result Series 2 cars were launched in 1996, and were a big improvement. It was in 1999 that the V12-engined DB7 Vantage finally came of age. Even then, it was only with the final incarnation, the GT, that the DB7 could really give its key rivals a run for their money dynamically. But it’s the current affordability of the DB7 that really sets it out - it’s usefully fast and great looking. This beautiful ‘Aston Martin British Racing Green’ DB7 was first registered on 31st March 2000 to a Mr J Taylor of Warwick who kept the car for three years and in that time did 18,490 miles. On 11th July 2003 the car w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

was bought by a Mr H Meynell MBE from Aston Martin dealer PJ Evans for £66,000.00 who in the ten years since then has only covered 9,300 miles in the car, meaning the mileage now stands at an incredibly low 27,900 miles from new. This mileage is supported by the extensive service history. The Aston Racing Green bodywork is complimented by an interior in what Aston Martin call ‘Forest Fawn’ which is a very attractive combination of dark magnolia and dark green leather. The condition of the bodywork and the interior are absolutely immaculate, as you would expect for such a low mileage, two-owner car. The car comes with all books, unused tool kit & spare wheel and an extensive history file supporting the service history, which includes the purchase invoice when Mr Meynell bought the car in 2003. The car has an MOT until July 2014 with no Advisories. It also benefits from having the latest specification coil packs and plugs fitted at considerable cost. Being a DB7 Vantage the car is fitted with the 5.9 litre, 48 valve V12 engine producing 420 bhp and 400lb/ft of torque meaning the car will achieve 0-60 in 4.9 seconds and, being an automatic, will go on to a top speed of 165 mph. This Aston Martin is also fitted with a Tracker, which can be registered to the new owner. SilverstoneAuc tions

Lot 354 >> 1927 Morris Cowley Flatnose Tourer

Originally a bicycle dealer from Oxford, William Morris launched his first car, the Oxford, in 1913. In 1915 it was joined by the larger Cowley model, priced at £225, which went on to sell over 54,000 units by the end of 1925. A truly incredible British story of achievement and success.

This original UK market car was first registered in 1927 and built as a saloon for somebody from the Kent area, according to the history file. However, by 1989 it was -like so many other similar cars from that period -languishing in a barn.

1927 Morris Cowley Flatnose Tourer Registration: MM 4042 Chassis Number: D224695 Engine Number: 256943 Estimate (£): 11,500 - 13,000

had a top quality retrim in grey leather to match the newly repainted body and also a new hood and sidescreens. The engine was also rebuilt and fitted with an overhauled dynostart system and magneto. Unbelievably today it has covered just a few hundred miles since that comprehensive rebuild and is now ready to be enjoyed by the next owner. We are assured it drives well and comes with the original owner’s manual plus a lot of period technical literature and a fresh M.O.T. Still bearing its original registration number, it represents today a significant milestone in the history of the British and Midlands car history in a very affordable price range.

This is when the car was treated to a nut and bolt restoration which included converting the body to a new four seat Touring body, supplied by renowned Morris specialists, Cookes of Nottingham. The car SilverstoneAuc tions

This success meant the need for extra production facilities and so the ‘Hotchkiss factory’ in Coventry was acquired where triple shifting the workforce meant they could just about keep up with the incredible demand. The 11.9 horse power Hotchkiss engine was built at Coventry and mated to a 3 speed gearbox with a wet clutch. Early cars had a ‘bullnose’ external radiator which was replaced in 1926 by the ‘flat’ radiator and it was by these nicknames by which the two models were generally known.

1977 Jaguar XJ12 5.3 Coupé Registration: XPE 823S Chassis Number: 2G-1399BW Engine Number: 33232 Estimate (£): 12,000 - 15,000

Jaguar introduced the 2 door ‘XJ Coupé’ model, called the XJ-C in 1975 and built it until 1978, based on the short wheel base version of the XJ saloon. They built 6505 4.2 six cylinder cars, but just 1,873 of the 5.3 V12 engine versions over the 3 year period and just 329 of the V12’s in 1977. They were the flagship of the Jaguar range at the time and only available as an automatic with a walnut dashboard, leather upholstery, vinyl roof and air conditioning as standard.

since. In the mid 1990’s he carried out a full restoration which is documented and photographed in the comprehensive history file which included new front wings and new sills as well as a full professional repaint. The car still features the original Tudor Webasto sunroof, Radiomobile radio/tape player, chrome hubcaps and a new stainless steel exhaust. Used only on special occasions and when the sun is shining, the mileage today is just 43,200. It surely now represents a rare chance to enjoy a bit of Jaguar history within a reasonable price range, in true comfort and style, with the reassuring knowledge that your monies have been well invested.

This particular car was one of just 329 V12 Coupé’s built in 1977 and was sold new to the then deputy Chairman of ICI and has since had just 2 further owners. The car has extensive early history (including all M.O.T’s from new) in the file with lots of original documentation, including all invoices and the original handbooks and service books. The vendor has owned the car since 1984 and has given the car regular and continuous maintenance ever w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

1981 Alfa Romeo Spider 2000 S2 Registration: MMF 483W Chassis Number: Not Specified Engine Number: Not Specified Estimate (£): No Reserve

The Alfa Romeo Spider was produced from 1966 to 1993. It is widely regarded as a design classic and it remained in production for almost three decades with only minor aesthetic and mechanical changes. 1971 saw the Spider Veloce get a new, larger power plant - a 1962cc unit - and consequently the name was changed from ‘1750 Spider Veloce’ to ‘2000 Spider Veloce’. The 1600 Spider restarted production a year

later and emerged as the ‘Spider 1600 Junior’, it was in fact visually identical to the 1300. The 1300 and 2000 cars were modified in 1974 and 1975 respectively to include two small seats behind the front seats, thus becoming a “two plus two”. This 1981 Alfa Romeo spider is a series II model that was originally delivered to the USA. It spent much of its early life there until being imported in to the UK approximately 10 years ago. Since it has been in the UK, the car has led a largely coveted life, having only been used on fine, bright days. Benefiting from a recent respray and a new hood, the car is ready to go. These Alfa Romeo Spiders are great little cars to drive and enjoy.

1999 Yamaha XVS 650A Drag Star

Based on the Yamaha Virago 535 engine, the Dragstar (named V Star in USA) cylinders were bored an additional 5mm to 81mm and stroked 4mm more to 63mm, to net a displacement of 649cc. The Dragstar comes in two models. The custom with a lower seat height 695mm and slightly less weight, and the classic with a higher seat height of 708 mm. The custom is approximately 230 kg (510 lb) and the classic approximately 30kg heavier 260 kg. “T137 FBN” is the classic version and presented in fine original condition. Having covered only 10,421, the 11 MOTs in the history file dating back to 2002 verify the low mileage. SilverstoneAuc tions

A more powerful version of the Anglia joined the range in 1962, the Anglia Super. The Super used a larger 1197cc (1200) version of the standard Anglia engine and enjoyed improved performance as a result. To distinguish the new model, a two-tone paint scheme was standard which consisted of a side stripe and roof panel painted in a contrasting colour. Other “extras” included full wheel trims, better interior trim, a new front grille and extra badges. Delivered new by Dinnages Garages Ltd of Sussex in May of 1964, this beautiful little 105E Anglia has led a very pampered life. Finished in Ermine White over Platinum Grey, this amazing car has covered just under 16,500 miles from new and has only had three recorded owners; the first being from its date of registration through to 1977. We are informed by the vendor that there is the original new car sales invoice w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

from 1964 along with the original buff logbook, 4 old style MOT certificates from 1970, 1976, 1977 and 1978 with mileage readings of 10729, 14446, 14613 and 15411 respectively - indicating that this car’s mileage is genuine. There are few cars that are as easy to drive as a 105E Anglia and this car drives superbly. The predictable, user-friendly handling and light steering are a delight and the long gear shifter, with it’s mechanical ‘clunk click’ action, is simplicity itself. This isn’t just an urban runabout though; head to an open road and this little Anglia is remarkably competent. The four cylinder engine may be modest, but its eager! With such outstandingly low mileage, it’s no surprise that this car has survived so well. The bodywork is very straight and remarkably well preserved given it will be celebrating its 50th birthday next year. There are a few small use related paint marks but nothing that detracts from its overall appearance. This Anglia is a very honest and unabused car that could be an excellent starter classic or alternatively could appeal to a real Ford enthusiast. With much recent expenditure to get it in ‘tip top’ mechanical condition and the addition of a fresh MOT, this increasingly scarce Anglia could feasibly become a low mileage show stopper.

The bodywork is in excellent condition and shows no evidence of rust whilst the car itself runs without fault having been recently re-commissioned including the fitment of a new fuel pump and HT leads.

The BMW E24 was the first six series coupé produced by the German manufacturer. Because of its beautiful styling it was referred to as the ‘Bavarian Ferrari’. Production of the 630CS and the 633CSI started in March 1996 at the Karmann works but production was soon moved in-house to BMW. In 1979 the 628CSI was introduced with fuel injection and marked the end of any carburetted cars in the range. However it was not until 1982 that the 635CSI really came of age with an improved chassis, improved styling to the exterior and cabin. The engine was now a smaller bored and longer stroked displacement of 3430cc. The flagship was the BMW Motrorsport inspired M6, but the sporting pedigree for the BMW E24 had been established in the Seventies with BMW 635CSI touring cars being the mainstay of most of the European grids.

Widely regarded as a design classic, the Alfa Romeo Spider (105/115 series) was produced by the Italian manufacturer from 1966 to 1993. With production spanning three decades and only incurring minor aesthetic and mechanical changes in that period,. The car forever immortalised by Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate stands as a true credit to those first cars assembled by Pininfarina. This Pininfarina-penned Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto was manufactured on May 16th 1967 and sold new in the UK as a righthand drive model in Farina White with black vinyl interior. Offered now in deeply original condition this charming little Alfa, one of just 380 manufactured by the gutsy Italian car makers, is a charming opportunity to either be appreciated as is or considered as a candidate for a sympathetic restoration. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

Whilst the coachwork, interior and paintwork could benefit from some minor attention, the throaty 1570cc inline four cylinder twin-cam engine performs well; both the engine and the gear change are described by our vendor as responsive and accurate. Showing a believed genuine 96,000miles on the odometer this Duetto is accompanied by various bills, some expired MoTs and old-style plus new style V5C. We understand that the previous owner to our vendor bought the car with the intention to restore, but then had to sell after a change of plan. The previous owner to this had the car for 28 years and used it only sparingly. Whilst we’ve identified that this car could benefit from some restoration works, it does have a current MoT and could be used in its current guise without concern. This really is a charming example of an early Spider Duetto that drives effortlessly, oozes style and would be a pleasure to own.

The Seventies represented a truly ‘rich vein’ of Motorsport success for Porsche, regulation changes to ‘level the playing field’ only tested their resolve and ingenuity. The Porsche 917 was rendered obsolete by late 1972 with rule changes to the World Sportscar Championship now geared for prototypes. Without sufficient time to respond to complete a build program, Porsche switched their attention to the European GT Championship, developing still further the successfull 2.7 RS. If ever there was justice, it prevailed in early 1973 when a Porsche 2.8 RSR, virtually ‘out of the box’, won the 24hrs of Daytona - a field littered with Prototypes. Unsurprisingly, it totally dominated European GTs (considering its 911 underpinnings, a remarkable achievement). The 911 RSR derivatives would remain a ‘nemesis’ to manufacturers for a decade. Porsche entries won all of the ‘blue ribbon’ events - Le Mans, Daytona, Sebring, etc. with regularity.

The repositioning of the Bentley marque as Rolls-Royce’s enthusiastic, high-performance partner had begun in 1982 with the introduction of the Bentley Mulsanne Turbo, yet one crucial element of the package remained relatively undeveloped: the chassis. As it happened, the modifications necessary to enable this to be exploited to the full - firmer damping and altered spring rates - debuted in 1984 on the evocatively named yet normally aspirated Bentley Eight. By giving the Bentley Eight a simple mesh grille in vintage Le Mans style, its designers created a distinctive new model, furthering the marque’s revival as Rolls-Royce’s sporting partner. Conceived as an entry-level Bentley, the normally aspirated Eight was pitched against the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7-Series, yet was more expensive than its German rivals at a little under £50,000 when launched in 1984. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

This Bentley Eight has benefitted from full Bentley main dealer service history up to 60,000 miles, when it was placed into dry storage for the period from 1999 to 2005. At this point, it was carefully re-commissioned and enjoyed a pampered life covering little mileage. In November 2006, a major service was undertaken at 74,760 miles by a marque specialist. We are pleased to offer this normally-aspirated model with an indicated mileage of only 78,200. Finished in the pleasing exterior colour of Forest Green with Parchment leather interior, contrasted with Forest Green piping, what exceptional value for money these luxury saloons now represent. Entered by a private collector, who informs us that the vehicle drives exceptionally well, this model is equipped with air conditioning, cruise control, electric seats/mirrors, central locking, Wilton carpets, radio with CD player and alloy wheels with Goodyear Eagle whitewall tyres. This handsome vehicle has also recently benefitted from an oil and fluid service, including antifreeze change and new battery. Offered without reserve and a no advisory MOT until August 2014 (correlating the mileage history detailed herein); why not drive home today in an iconic piece of British motoring history?

1963 Ford Cortina 2 Dr, Deluxe GT Registration: VHV 793 Chassis Number: TBC Engine Number: 118EB631937 Estimate (£): 19,000 - 21,000

Brakes are uprated all round with front P16 Girling callipers with 9’’ manual adjusting rears with a 7’’ Girling 2b servo, 0.75 brake master cylinder, kunifer brake pipes throughout with stainless steel Goodridge flexible hoses. The deep gloss black paintwork is almost flawless in its appearance and has a deep mirror finish throughout with no discernible marks or scratches. To say this car is unique would be somewhat of an understatement, sold with an MOT until July of 2014, marvel at how this 60s saloon manages on so much on so little, the magic of this car is way more than the sum of its parts, it really is a revelation every time you get in and drive it, this is genuinely something special, as seen at Goodwood.

Here is the opportunity to purchase a very special MK1 Cortina. A very rare early MK1 GT , it has a few subtle differences to the later cars such as a full front grille, small oval indicators, full front bumper, dash clock layout with steering column rev counter and a 130 MPH speedo. Amazingly we are informed by the vendor that this car was restored by an avid Ford Cortina Club member who was also a mechanical engineer. He restored this stunning car over a 21 year period and as such the attention to detail is truly exceptional.

Lot 609

1990 Lister Jaguar XJS 7.0 Litre Le Mans Coupé Registration: G480WNJ Chassis Number: 037LJ04LM Engine Number: LP046/70L Estimate (£): 25,000 - 30,000

Lister is one of the most renowned names in sports car racing history. The Lister-Jaguar, designed by Brian Lister, swept almost all before it during its first full racing season in 1957. In recent years cars bearing the Lister name have been a major force in GT racing worldwide. From the early 1980s, the name has also graced some of the world’s fastest road cars. Following an agreement first with BLE Automotive and then with WP Automotive, we saw highly modified XJ-S models marketed as Lister-Jaguars. The famous Lister Jaguar connection made its commercial reappearance in 1986. Approximately 90 tuned Jaguar XJSs were produced, with the emphasis very much on super car performance. For those who felt the standard V12 Jaguar engine a bit insipid, Lister added a comprehensive tuning package. The fuel injection was modified with 4 additional injectors and throttle bodies. The engine management system was tweaked, the heads gas flowed with larger w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

valves fitted and to take the power, the crankshaft was nitrided, whilst Cosworth conrods carried special forged pistons. New bearings and a modified oil system were also deemed necessary in order to reliably deliver the 604bhp that it could now produce. The Le Mans Coupé was capable of over 200 mph with the correct gearing and was the first production car to do so. Clearly the suspension and braking were going to need some attention, and this they duly got. The car was made to look the part too with a full body kit and superb Lister Recaro leather interior. According to factory chassis records, this Lister Jaguar is one of only 20 Le Mans 7.0 litre Coupés ever made. Chassis number #037LJ04LM was exported from new but repatriated from Brunei by the last owner. It is believed that the car was delivered new to the Brunei Royal Family. Purchased by the current owner in 2004 with only 3,350 miles reading on the odometer, #037LJ04LM has been professionally stored since in a temperature controlled environment. A little over 120 miles have been covered to and from the MoT station over the last 9 years. However, oil changes at regular intervals have ensured that this incredibly rare car is in fine mechanical order.

In 1990 this car was sold new for nearly £160,000. Today, it is yours for a snip of that original price and surely represents an investment opportunity for any classic car collection. 1980s and 1990s exotica, such as Lister XJS’, have shown bullish rises in value recently as their depreciation curves level off and good examples become harder to source. w w w .silver s toneauc t ions.com

The bodywork is factory precise, the underside spotless and the paint is reflective of a car that has been used sparingly over the years. The engine bay is extremely clean and the inner wings flawless. It is very rare to find an XJS in such pristine original order, let alone a Lister Le Mans. The interior shows some signs of age, specifically the leather would benefit from reconolising treatment. Pre-auction inspection is welcomed and encouraged.

1982 Bentley Mulsanne Registration: DRO 630Y Chassis Number: SCBZS0007CCH05274 Engine Number: 05274 Estimate (£): No Reserve

The new Bentley Mulsanne promised to epitomise the very spirit of Bentley motoring by offering ample performance combined with complete comfort. It achieved this in spades which is perhaps why the Mulsanne variant continued in one guise or another for more than 12 years of production. Its name was derived from the manufacturers racing roots which saw five victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans between 1924 and 1930, the ‘Mulsanne Straight’ being the stretch of the circuit where cars reach their highest speeds. The Mulsanne shared the traditional 6.75 litre RollsRoyce V8 with aluminium alloy cylinder heads, two SU carburettors and a 3-speed automatic transmission.

w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

The lovely Bentley Mulsanne offered here today was first registered in August 1982 sporting the Forest Green coloured coachwork and light beige interior piped in green which it still sports now. The car is accompanied by all its correct manufacturer handbooks and a well stamped service book of no fewer than 9 insertions from 1,910 miles in December 1982, to 49,397 in 2006. The car was then laid up for a period before entering the large private collection of our vendor where it has been maintained by his mechanics, and used only occasionally. The mileage now is just 50,708 and the Bentley is offered with a fresh MoT with no advisories.

Introduced in 1965 the MGB GT was one of the earliest examples of the now popular hatchback car and the large load platform for luggage made the GT a really useful two-seat touring car. Although the coupé bodywork made the GT much heavier than the Roadster, its shape actually helped the performance with improved aerodynamics and gave the GT a slightly higher top speed than the Roadster and also an improvement in handling. First registered in June 1967 this very usable Mk.I MGB GT is finished in an unusual beige colour with red SilverstoneAuc tions

In all round good order, there are a few unfortunate defects in the panel work, particularly on the passenger door, but this is a relatively easy fix should one wish. We believe that the car was the subject of some restorative works in the period to 2005 as the odometer was reset with history picking up from the 2005/2006 MoT at 1,558miles, now showing just 3,103. It is a car that can be used and enjoyed and is a great first classic car for someone taking the plunge. MG’s are very simple of work on if necessary with mechanicals easily accessible and relatively uncomplicated. The car has just passed its MoT and coming from a large collection where it has resided since September 2009 it has been used only occasionally. A fabulous car! w w w .silver s toneauc t ions.com

The triple Le Mans winning Jaguar D-Type will need little introduction. Following on from the C-Type’s victories in 1951 and 1953, the D-Type, with its then state of the art chassis encompassing a central monocoque section, improved rear suspension and a more powerful XK engine, handsomely won the Vingt Quatre Heures du Mans in 1955, 1956 and 1957. Among the most desirable of collectors’ cars worldwide today even the “customer” cars - let alone the factory Works cars - fetch millions and for most of us therefore the only alternative is to acquire or commission a replica.

around the edges as a D-Type should look - but no less likely to turn heads and put a wide smile across your face. The gorgeous but costly replica Dunlop wheels of the original pattern are shod with new-in-2010 Michelin period looking tyres. This car boasts a history file comprising of a host of correspondence between owners, stacks of invoices and receipts for the work that has been undertaken throughout its life and other related notes. It has formed part of a large private collection and although it has been awarded a fresh MoT ahead of the sale, it hasn’t stretched its legs properly since late 2011. We would reasonably recommend that the buyer consider a minor engine service before subjecting the car to the aggressive use of which it is eminently capable. Don’t hesitate to own and enjoy such a motor car.

Excellently engineered and developed in 1997 from a Le Mans Sportscar Company replica kit, ‘YJI 37’ is tremendously quick with thanks to its 4.2litre powerplant from a 1972 Jaguar XJ6 donor as the V5C reflects.

The XK120 was launched in 1948 and it was an international sensation. The XK finally put Jaguar on the world stage and the racing derivatives would see the beginning of a hugely successful period for the company. The XK150 was the final incarnation of the XK and it appeared in May 1957. A more refined and capable machine than its predecessors, the 150 was easily identifiable by its higher scuttle and door line, wider grille and improved interior space. However, it retained much of the mechanical layout of the XK140 sharing the same 3.4 litre DOHC Jaguar straight-six, which developed 180bhp at 5750rpm. ‘The Jaguar XK150 is undeniably one of the world’s fastest and safest cars. It is quiet and exceptionally refined mechanically, docile and comfortable... we do not know of any more outstanding example of value for money,’ concluded The Autocar.

1972 Land Rover Range Rover Suffix A Registration: OUU 3L Chassis Number: 35504795A Engine Number: 35507794B Estimate (£): No Reserve

Good Classic Range Rovers are getting more and more difficult to find as interest in them soars. We remember fondly an Octane article from February 2011 pitting four Range Rovers owned by the who’s who of the London motoring set with (in our humble opinion) the ‘72 Suffix A in Davos White stealing the show. The owner of that vehicle saying of these machines that ‘the 1972 ‘Suffix A’ example will feel a bit ‘classic’ on the road, as it has the heavy four-speed gearbox and lacks power steering. Certainly it is not the sort of vehicle you want to hustle through central London but, once on the move, the steering lightens up appreciably, and whilst the gearshift is slow it is co-operative, and the car’s demeanour is friendly. Visibility is first class and the ride is supple. The all-round disc brakes work just fine and soon you begin to lean the long-travel suspension into corners with more commitment while exploring the V8’s 135bhp’. Perhaps this is why dealer showrooms and auctions in recent years have seen similar cars in complete restored condition make well above £20,000, and seemingly north of £50,000 in some cases if window prices are to be believed. The car offered here today is unlikely to reach those dizzy heights, but is none the less intriguing for the enthusiast who wants to complete the car to their own specification. It has been the recipient of w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

some recent remedial works to the body and to the unusual Tuscan Blue paintwork. As always, the tailgate on this car has suffered from corrosion and professional rectification is recommended. Otherwise, the car is in original order with the inevitable tarnishing to the Sand coloured vinyl seats, a spare set of which are offered by the vendor as part of this Lot. As we made comment to in our opening line, these cars are increasingly difficult to source so if you want to own one, and we strongly suggest you do, restoring one may be your only option. Offered Without Reserve, but with owner’s manual, original registration number, old-style V5, a replacement handbook, four uncut period keys and a hand-written mileage record kept by a fastidious former keeper, this is an excellent base from which to create one of those £20,000 showroom stars we eluded to...

The Jaguar X300 was manufactured between 1994 and 1997 and was the first offering by Ford as the new owners of Jaguar. The brief for the range was to improve build quality, improve reliability and introduce more of the Jaguar styling traditions. Ford invested heavily with state of art production techniques marking a commitment to the British auto industry. In December 1994 Queen Elizabeth II visited Browns Lane and marked the occasion by ordering the Daimler version for her own personal use. The ride quality of the XJ range had always been an industry standard. It was powered by the famous V12 engine, which now delivered even more turbine smooth refinement as electronic management improved.

1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 series 1 Fixed Head Coupé Registration: ASW 888C Chassis Number: 1E20370 Engine Number: 7E76409 Estimate (£): 52,000 - 60,000

It is difficult to imagine the impact of the Jaguar E-Type when it was launched back in 1961. The looks, the style, the engine and the value for money were all to become stuff of legend. Even Enzo Ferrari was forced to comment that it was “The most beautiful car in the world” at the time. With a top speed of 150 mph and a price tag of £2,196 for the Fixed Head Coupé, it was less than half the price of it’s contemporaries from either Germany or Italy. The E-Type single handedly moved the goal posts and it set an entirely new agenda in the world of Sportscars. In 1965 Jaguar refined the Series 1 with the introduction of an ultra smooth 4.2 version of the classic 6 cylinder engine which was to become accepted as their best version ever produced. It now drove as good as it looked. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

Last year, on the instruction of our vendor, it was completely nut and bolt restored by the Jaguar enthusiast and legend, Ray Parrott, and is in fact the last car he has restored prior to retirement at the age of 80! Finished in it’s original ultra smart colour combination of Gunmetal Grey with Black leather it received a bare metal repaint as well as a full engine rebuild with all new parts used where necessary. The total cost of all this work exceeded £80,000. (Bills on file) It was found to be “mechanically excellent” and needed very few new body panels or major engine components, so solid was the original car. Sensible upgrades were incorporated by Ray which included fitting a Getrag 5 speed gearbox, Coopercraft front brake upgrade, Series 2 rear brake upgrade, Polybushing all the suspension and a new radiator with additional cooling fans. The engine was fully rebuilt and had a new big valve head fitted, combined with a stainless 6 branch exhaust manifold system and a full stainless exhaust system. We strongly recommend that you Google the name ‘Ray Parrot Jaguar’ to understand the significance of who he is and the significance of the E-Type’s that he has restored in his later life time, particularly the last ever E-Type built which is well documented by Classic and Sportscar magazine. This restoration is to a high standard and the USP of this car is the special way that it drives today. A stunning highly collectable car, offered at a fraction of the cost to the current vendor.

Supplied new by Cathedral Garage Ltd of Bristol in April of 1980, MLH 944V has led a very pampered life and has been meticulously maintained over the years. We are informed by the vendor that there is paperwork showing a Mr Philips purchasing the car in November of 1984 from Cathedral Garage, at which point the mileage was 19000. Incredibly, Mr Phillips owned the car for 29 years and kept a meticulous record of expenditure on the car. The car is supplied with all its original dealer handpack and books, MoT certificates and 2 sets of keys. The current mileage of 55,500 is obviously warranted and also confirms this to be a matching numbers car. We are told that in 2001, Mr Phillips decided the black paintwork was looking a little flat and decided to pay for a bare metal, windows out repaint which was carried out by Falcon Restorations near Bath at a cost of £6,554.12. A photographic documentation with invoicing is w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

included in the sale of this car and merely emphasises the attention to detail that this car has received over the years. The black paintwork is smooth and blemish free, shut lines are spot on and the overall stance of the car looks exactly right. This level of care and attention is continued under the bonnet and in the cockpit. The spotless and leak-free Lotus twin cam is complimented by a very tidy engine bay while the interior looks much as it did when it was delivered in 1980. The roarty four cylinder delivers the kind of sound you want from a British sports car, with no smoke or signs of overheating. Like every good Lotus, the precise steering and communicative chassis make driving this car a rich and rewarding experience. Reassuringly, in December 2012, MLH 944V was taken to marque specialist Skip Brown Cars in Cheshire for a major service, cambelt change and vehicle inspection report. Suffice to say this car is reported to be in beautiful condition throughout and is now also offered with a fresh MoT. This is a car that’s been cosseted; we doubt you will find a better example anywhere, so if you’re in the market we would suggest you form an orderly queue.

When the Porsche 964 when introduced in 1989 it was 85% different to the outgoing 911. The design incorporated more integral bumpers and a host of mechanical changes, most significant was the introduction of four wheel drive. The displacement was now up to 3600cc producing 250bhp. Power steering and ABS brakes were now fitted as standard. The torsion bar rear suspension was replaced with coil springs and shock absorbers.

The Alfa Romeo 105/115 series Coupés were built from 1963 until 1977. They were the successors to the celebrated Giulietta Sprint coupé and used the shortened floor-pan from the Giulia saloon car. The basic body shape, shared by all models, was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Bertone. It was one of his first major projects for Bertone and is often regarded as one of his finest commercial projects. It borrowed heavily from his earlier design for the Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint/2600 Sprint. Often considered as one of the best looking and handling classic saloon cars with its 5-speed gearbox, all round disc brakes, independent suspension and torquey engine they were very advanced for the time and have the capability to embarrass many of their modern counterparts.

The dry climate of Cyprus has treated this little Alfa well, the result of which is an Alfa Romeo that, as unbelievable as it may seem, is almost entirely original - with only minimal signs of welding in the passenger footwell and spare wheel well. When purchased by its second owner in 2011, the car was subject to a sympathetic restoration. As a result the car benefits from having had a complete respray, along with the interior recovered and headlining replaced, to retain the overall superb quality of the car. The brightwork was replaced and the mechanicals also received an overhaul with the engine receiving new piston rings and big end bearings. This Alfa looks as though it could have rolled out of the factory just last week and is in magnificent condition both inside and out, top and bottom. *Please note the car is presented with a FIVA Identity certificate and has no TAX or VAT payable.

The Porsche 911 2.8 RSR could not have had a better race debut, winning the 1973 Daytona 24hrs virtually straight from the factory. Peter Gregg and Hurley Haywood took overall victory following the demise of the prototypes. It was equally as dominant in the European GT Championship. The 2.8 RSR was truly a production based racer, the original underpinnings were from the road 911S and a dynasty would evolve to rightly put the Porsche 911 as one of the greatest competitors at all levels of motorsport... For this reason, the Porsche RSR Replica market has grown enormously and demand is far out-stripping supply of quality machines. Unlike many Porsche’s of the 1980’s period, this one has had just five owners from new, each taking extraordinary care of the servicing and maintenance of the car alongside regular usage. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

This RSR Replica finished in period Grand Prix White with Blue Carrera decals is based on a 1985 911 Carrera 3.2 shell and all the wings and bonnet and ducktail are fibreglass. The wheels are correct 16” Fuchs as used in period with 225/50z/r16 tyres to the front, and 245/45z/ r16 tyres to the rear that complement the look. The interior is largely standard and in very good order. The history file is very comprehensive throughout its life with Original service book including 20 stamps recording service from 1985 - 2002 at 125,000 miles. Most recently, the car has undergone the RSR replica works as you see today and benefits from a top-end engine and full 24,000 mile service in July of this year at 145,000 miles. The 915 gearbox was rebuilt and clutch replaced at 82,000miles in 1998, both performing faultlessly. In total, this is a well-executed RSR Replica which drives exceptionally well yet remains reasonably docile in traffic. This is a properly engineered and maintained Porsche with handling to match benefitting from retaining a comfortable cabin. Grand Prix White perfectly encompasses the period look and the whole package is great fun and an awesome presence.

1960 Triumph Vignale Italia 2000 Registration: M 177178 (Spain) Chassis Number: 030/ Engine Number: TBA Estimate (£): 23,000 - 28,000

This is believed to be the only example to have been imported to Spain and carries its original Madrid registration. Note that the car´s registration is no longer valid in Spain. Silverstone Auctions will alert HMRC through their NOVA system of the car’s existence, helping pave the way should the car be registered in the UK upon sale. We strongly recommend that overseas buyers check local regulations to understand the process of registration where you are.

The first owner of such a car would have paid huge import duties and would have required influence in Franco´s Spain to get an import permit at all. Such wealthy families often just parked cars up when the novelty wore off, as appears to have been the case with this Italia. SilverstoneAuc tions

This prime-for-restoration 1960 Triumph Italia was discovered in 2012 after many years in dry storage in Madrid. It´s history is being investigated, but it appears that the car was registered new in Madrid in 1960. It presents with less than 70,000kms and the interior shows little wear and tear. The mileage cannot be proved, but light usage and a benevolent climate have helped to preserve the car well by the standards of 1960s low-volume Italian coach-built series. There is some localised corrosion, but the chassis is very good and the unique and difficult-to-find trim features of the car are present and correct.

The Ex-Juan Manuel Fangio 1970 IKA Torino 380S Registration: SPW 82B (Argentina) Chassis Number: 613-00570 Engine Number: 7060349 Estimate (£): No Reserve

Silverstone Auctions are very proud to have been chosen by the family of the late, great, Juan Manuel Fangio to present his prized IKA Torino; a car very special to him and his family. Few may know the importance of the Torino to the Argentine people, and fewer still may know that the great racer himself was actually influential in the design and existence of the enormously popular Argentinian crafted Torino creating, as he did, the Torino in partnership with the IKA manufacturer and his friend, Battista “Pinin” Farina. By successes and percentages Juan Manuel Fangio can be regarded as the greatest race driver of all time. His Five World Championships came with four manufacturers during a narrow window in the Fifties, the most evocative era of Grand Prix and Sports Car Racing. His Formula One record percentages still eclipse any other driver. From 52 entries he won 24, achieved w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

29 pole positions and 48 front-row starts. He won the Argentinian Grand Prix four times, and not surprisingly “El Maestro” (‘’The Master’’) would become one of the most important figureheads for his homeland throughout the world. After all, he had represented Europe’s finest automotive giants and endeared himself in the most gladiatorial battle of subsequent motorsport globally. With just 1,558 units of the 380S Torino built between 1968 and 1970, this is in itself a very rare car, made all the more special on European shores and laced with Fangio history. His family tell us that he was gifted this car by the manufacturer, IKA (Industrias Kaiser Argentina, later IKA-Renault), in respect of his contribution to the creation of what is commonly referred to as Argentina’s national car, or perhaps in recognition of his input to the minor racing success of the Torino. In 1974, Fangio was appointed President of Mercedes-Benz Argentina, and its Honorary President for Life in 1987. This appointment and his continued association with the marque meant that he could no longer be seen behind the wheel of his Torino, albeit he remained the owner. Records with the car from 1975 show the inclusion of both his brother-in-law and a family friend to his insurance policy to be able to drive the car. SilverstoneAuc tions

Be under no doubt that, whilst deeply original, this treasured possession of the great racing driver has succumbed to some of the vagaries of time, and as such requires light cosmetic rectification in places on the paint and brightwork. That said, the car presents in exceptionally good order for the year, and has been unmolested by the family since the passing of its first owner in 1995, meaning you can enjoy it in the same way that he did. Mechanically the car is sound, albeit SilverstoneAuc tions

we would recommend having the car professionally inspected should you fancy your hand at emulating some of the impressive driving displayed in the career of its famous past-owner. Included with the Lot are many documents showing the ownership trail and reference of Fangio to this important motor car, which include a Titulo Del Automotor (Vehicle Title), insurance documents, Argentinian vehicle green card, Automovil Club membership, handbook, service book, Fangio’s International licence, and even a business card of the man himself as President of Mercedes-Benz Argentina. We are enormously honoured to offer this car Without Reserve to the global market from our sale at the Lancaster Insurance NEC Classic Motor Show and wish to thank the family of the late Juan Manuel Fangio for their faith in our suggestion of offering this car in the UK. European taxes and duties shall be payable on completion of a successful purchase should the car remain in the EU, and Silverstone Auctions respectfully recommend that all interested parties satisfy themselves as to the implications of the registration of the vehicle before they bid.

An Argentinian magazine celebrating the importance of the Torino accompanies the car and within is shared a story recounting the Torino’s most notable international racing success at the 84 hour Nürburgring race of 1969, with a Torino finishing in fourth place. The factory shipped three cars to Germany and after the three and a half days of racing, the #3 Torino driven by Eduardo Copello, Alberto Rodriguez Larreta, and Oscar Mauricio Franco, had covered the most laps of all - 334, but lost the top position because they accumulated various penalties during the race. The drivers’ recounted that their success was largely due to the presence of Fangio as team manager, saying that “with Fangio in our corner, doors just opened”. IKA Torino became the pride and joy of Argentine car enthusiasts when their country’s team showed that it could run with the best of Europe on Europe’s toughest circuit.

Following on from the enormous success of the Lotus Cortina MK1, Ford introduced the Lotus Cortina MkII in 1967 with the famous Lotus 1600 twin cam engine now giving 109bhp. Externally all the cars had a black front grill, 5.5J x 13 steel wheels and Lotus badges on both rear wings and by the rear numberplate. The gearbox ratios remained to 2000E spec, but the final drive was lengthened to 3.77 to 1 from 3.9 to 1 and comfort and handling improvements were made with a larger fuel tank and radial tyres. This 1970 Lotus Cortina was delivered new in UK RHD specification to Malta. It spent the much of it’s life in the mild winters and hot summers of Malta, until being repatriated to the UK 3 years ago by our vendor. It was purchased from a motor museum, where it was kept for 3 years on display. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

Reading just 15,503 miles from new, we are unable to verify this mileage, however, given that Malta is just 122 square miles in size, we can understand how one would have little use for a car on the island. The vendor has recently had the engine taken apart to satisfy himself that it is all in good order. He tells us that the cylinder linings shows little signs of wear and has replaced any perished items and the gaskets on the engine as a precaution. A great car that looks relatively untouched, and mileage aside, is in tremendous condition and a car that you would be proud to own.

Alfa Romeo introduced the 1600cc version of the Giulietta at the Auto Salon Geneva in March 1963, it would now be known as the Giulia SS. With a drag coefficient of only 0.28 its ‘’Disco Volante’’ styling by Bertone was years before its time and was regarded by many as the prettiest small-capacity coupé ever to be built. The pure aerodynamics which were applied to the design resulted in the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale having very low wind noise at high speeds and a top speed of over 120mph. This was all obtained from the 1570cc twin cam engine with twin Weber 45DCOE carburettors producing 112bhp. Of the 1400 Giulia SS models produced only 25 were converted to right hand drive by Ruddspeed in period.

The Ford Sierra RS Cosworth was launched at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show and was the first Ford to wear the ‘Cosworth’ badge. Only 5545 were built in order to homologate the car for Group A Touring car racing and were based on the 3 door Sierra bodyshell but fitted with a 2.0 litre turbo engine of now legendary repute. It featured a double overhead camshaft, 16 valve engine with a Garret T3 turbo and intercooler, giving a reliable 204bhp which produced a 150 mph top speed and a 0-60 time of just 6.8 seconds!

and the car looks fantastic in it’s original rare colour of Moonstone Blue. Stored in his home garage, but used less and less in recent years, the car is totally original (including the engine and gearbox) and preserved in a completely original state, contrasting with the many similar cars that ended up with modified turbos, suspension and trim. As such, it is highly collectable today and the Cosworth is now being recognised as a real future classic, with many experts predicting long term growth in value - similar to the limited edition fast Fords of previous generations. This is a real chance of fun classic car ownership with a car that one can add value to by carrying out minor restoration and improvements, whilst enjoying superb motoring in a real “blue oval” icon.

This UK supplied right hand drive car was bought new by our vendor on 24th November 1986 from his local Oxford Ford main agent.

At the heart of the William Lyons styled Roadster was the all-new 3.4 six cylinder engine featuring twin overhead camshafts, twin SU carburettors and giving 160BHP. This meant a 0-60mph in sub 10 seconds and a top speed of over 120mph, hence the name. It was to become a massive success in both the showroom and on the track, winning Le Mans in ‘51 and ‘53 with legends like Sir Stirling Moss at the wheel. This car is a genuinely exceptional UK market right hand drive car first supplied on 24th November 1950 by Henlys of London. It can only be described today as being in exceptional and highly original condition, confirmed by the matching numbers on the chassis, body, engine and gearbox. Restored completely by XK experts, Guy Broad, the Opalescent Silver paintwork has been refinished to a very high standard indeed and contrasts beautifully with the patinated and original red leather upholstery. The car has settled well from it’s restoration and now benefits from some minor but important upgrades including telescopic shock absorbers (rather than lever arms), Coopercraft brake conversion, period looking Britax safety belts and a stainless steel exhaust. The comprehensive history file shows both ownership and restoration history fully with all invoices present, and also includes a period of ownership by noted Jaguar expert - Nigel Dawes.

Ford had been working on a turbo charged machine that would tackle the new breed of ‘Group B’ Rally cars like the Audi Sport Quattro, Peugeot 205 T16 and the Lancia Delta and 037. Unusually for Ford they failed miserably with the Escort RS 1700T so they were forced to return to the drawing board and start all over again, the result was the RS200. The project commenced in 1983 with production of 200 cars planned to meet Group B requirements. Ghia designed the RS200 and, unusually, the bodywork was entrusted to a company who knew a fair bit about building fibreglass cars. Reliant. F1 gurus Tony Southgate and John Wheeler looked after the chassis engineering and the result was spectacular. Ford bosses demanded that it must have four-wheel drive and it was built round a space frame chassis, with a potent mid-mounted turbo-charged engine. The car was fitted w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

with the 1.8-litre 16-valve Cosworth BDA engine (the BDT) engine courtesy of well proven race engine builder Brian Hart. Add to this an innovative front mounted gearbox for better weight distribution plus a variable torque split differential from Ferguson and you had a real beast of a car. It looked like Ford finally had the package to beat... However a series of tragic accidents spelt the end of Group B, and it was also the end of an era for the fastest, most dangerous, most spectacular period in modern rallying. As a result, after just one year in competition, it was all over for the RS200, and so it never got to show off its full potential. However it did prove that it had enormous promise when many of the cars were spectacularly successful in Rallycross. To get FIA homologation Ford had to build 200 cars, it seems that six were classified as ‘prototypes’, so only 194 actually left the factory 46 of which where dismantled for spares, whilst just 90 of the cars built where converted and sold as road cars. This legendary Ford RS200 build #114 was delivered to its first owner a Mr N Turner on 02/05/1985. The Extras included the very rare 350BHP ‘Rally Spec’ upgrade. Whereas a standard car could reach 60 mph in 4 sec and do 140mph, when upgraded with the Ford-supplied SilverstoneAuc tions

Unlike most road cars that left the factory with the differential gearstick removed and the car being fixed in 37:63 four-wheel drive option.

In 1998 the car changed hands and was re-registered by DVLA as K648 XEL, before being changed to the number plate it bears today C20 ORS in 1999.

On purchasing the car the decision was made to make the car truly road usable and the clutch was replaced with a hydraulic version and an electronic engine mapping system was fitted, which improves the driving experience hugely and makes it a very useable car as well as a fantastic show piece. The car has also benefited from a total engine rebuild by DS Motorsport just 2,500 miles ago to the tune of over £5,000.

With its top speed of 150 mph and a price tag of £2196 for the FHC, it was less than half the price of any of its contemporaries from either Italy or Germany.

1995 Ferrari F512 M Registration: TBA Chassis Number: ZFFYA40JPN0101421 Engine Number: 38888 Estimate (£): 85,000 - 100,000

At the Paris Salon in October of 1994, Ferrari introduced the final version of the fabulous Testarossa series - designated the F512M. The letter “M” stood for modificata, with the vehicle featuring a modified design, a modified engine/transmission and various other internal and external modifications that truly made this rendition the “beast” of the Testarossa series. Although the original Testarossa displayed ground-breaking styling, design and performance, Ferrari did not rest on their laurels. There was constant improvement and enhancement of the Testarossa and it eventually evolved into the 512TR of 1991 and finally the F512M of 1995. With each evolution the styling, interior and performance were improved in a car that was consistently capable of top speeds in excess of 180 MPH and 0 to 60 MPH times of less than 5 seconds. Only 501 w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

F512Ms were manufactured worldwide, making them very collectable and a sound long-term investment opportunity. This stunning left-hand drive F512 M was sold new to Japan and featured prominently in two private collections until it was discovered by the current owner earlier this year. The service booklet shows 3 service stamps in Japan and a letter from Tony Willis of Maranello Concessionaires Archive confirms that the car was sold new in March 1995 in Japan. The current owner imported the vehicle on 15th July 2013 and sent it immediately to Ferrari marque specialists QV London for a major service. Pictures in the history file show the engine completely removed and all belts and tensioners were replaced. At the same time, all oils and fluids were changed, a compression test carried out, the air conditioning re-gassed, new drive shaft gator fitted and brake fluids changed. A bill of nearly £4,000 can be found in the history file for this work. Finished in its original colour combination of Rosso Corsa 300 with Nero hide, this final edition of the Testarossa bloodline is reading a mere 25,245 kilometres (15,687 miles) and is presented in simply stunning condition.

1967 Austin Healey 3000 MkII BJ8 Registration: Unregistered Chassis Number: HBJ842182 Engine Number: 29KRUH16773 Estimate (£): 46,000 - 50,000

The Austin-Healey 3000 was built from 1959 to 1967, and is the best known of the “big” Healey models. The car’s bodywork was made by Jensen Motors, and the vehicles were assembled at the BMC Abingdon works. The 3000 Mark III was launched in October 1963, and remained in production until the end of 1967 when production of Austin-Healey’s ceased. Classified as the BJ8, the new model was the most powerful and luxurious of the big Healeys, with a walnut-veneer dash, and a 150hp engine. This particular Austin Healey 3000 BJ8 was built in the final year of Healey production and was one of just 14 cars exported in RHD specification. It was delivered to the warm dry climate of Cyprus where it lived a muchloved life having had just two previous owners.

w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

The car was sold in the 1980’s to its second Cypriot owner who as a precision engineer set upon a detailed restoration that took 10 years eventually being completed in 2006. The reason for the lengthy time of the restoration was due to retaining as much of the original parts as possible which meant individually restoring each item on the car and only replacing parts where absolutely necessary. Unfortunately financial circumstances meant the car had to be sold after it had covered just 5200 miles since the restoration. It then found itself back in its birthplace where lack of space has necessitated the sale of the car. Since its return to the UK the car has had £3,500 spent on finishing touches to the car, which is supported by a three-page invoice from respected specialist ‘RetroMarques’. Presented in stunning condition as a result of a true “labour of love” restoration. This Big Healey is currently unregistered and is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner wherever he maybe. *Please note the car is presented with a FIVA Identity certificate and has no TAX or VAT payable. It also car complies with the latest NOVA Import legislation with a approved application. Silverstone Auctions will be happy to help with registration of the vehicle within the UK.

Then acquired in 2005 by a BMW Master technician, who is an avid fan of the brand, it took him 6 years to fully restore and rebuild the car in to the amazing machine that exists today. The car was fully stripped and restored with new front wings, bonnet, front panel, boot lid and doors and then resprayed in it’s original colour of Fjord blue. The engine, gearbox and diff were replaced with the ultra desirable engine and transmission from an early 90’s BMW M5 (E34), which itself was then fully rebuilt by our Master technician who incorporated Schrick cams in to the blueprinted engine, which now gives 325 BHP. The original close ratio 5 speed gearbox was also retained and a new clutch fitted. Additionally, the electric Recaro seats from the M5 were fitted front and rear although great care was taken to keep the outside totally standard with no give away as to what was underpinning the car in order to create a tasteful undercover wolf in sheep’s clothing!

There was a certain innocence to product placement in the early sixties. Incorporating a brand or product into a movie probably just seemed like a good idea at the time. Eon Productions - having been spurned by Jaguar - turned their attentions to Aston Martin to provide the ‘daily driver’ for MI6 agent, James Bond... the rest is more than just history. The 1964 Bond film, ‘Goldfinger’, made the DB5 one of the most famous cars of all time. Unsurprising as what man wouldn’t want to drive a beautiful car and imagine themselves as a wayward secret agent and all round ladies man. With the DB5 being resurrected in the latest James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’ it has further cemented the DB5’s significance in both cult history and also in motoring history. Not since the introduction of the E-type had the industry seen the glamour for such a car by royalty, rock stars, celebrities and the like. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

This matching numbers, original RHD UK delivered Aston Martin DB5 offered here is the embodiment of the car featured in the James Bond movies finished in the iconic Silver Birch colour. The second owner of the car then had it exported to the perfect classic car climate of Australia where no doubt the factory fitted webasto roof was much needed! It spent much of its life in dry, sunny Australia until being returned to its birthplace in 2012. On its return to the UK the car was subject to a sympathetic restoration which included not only refreshing the exterior and interior in Silver Birch over Black leather but also a detailed mechanical refurbishment. As one would expect the mechanical refurbishment addressed all core aspects of the car, which importantly included the removal and separation of the engine and gearbox. The engine was stripped and all parts inspected before being reassembled with new gaskets and seals. The Liners were removed and replaced, a refurbished standard size crankshaft was fitted with new bearings and the water galleries cleaned out. The cylinder head was also subject to refurbishment with the inlet and exhaust valves checked cleaned and reground before the head was rebuilt.

1970 ISO Rivolta GT Registration: RNK 900H Chassis Number: 410475 Engine Number: 683F12-125P Estimate (£): 20,000 - 30,000

The Rivolta, built between 1962 and 1970, was its first venture into the GT market and the cars were very impressive. A young Giugiaro designed the bodywork and former Ferrari engineer, Giotti Bizzarrini, created the chassis. It was a recipe that worked, and in many ways was similar to what Gordon Keeble was doing in the UK. The elegant Bertone-built steel body clothed a similar box-section frame with De Dion rear suspension. The Rivolta had an American V8 under the bonnet, giving it an impressive turn of speed. In fact, it was easily capable of more than 140mph. Being less than two-thirds of the cost of an entry-level Ferrari at the time, commercially the Rivolta picked up plenty of sales, being fast as well as practical with its four-seat capacity. Only a few good examples of the 797 exotic sports car exist today; like much Italian exotica from the 1960s, the car succumbed to corrosion. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

“RNK 900H” supplied new and first registered in the UK on 26th June 1970 to Douglas Stitt of Wardington Nr. Banbury. He part exchanged the car for a new Ford Escort at his local garage in the September of 1978. The garage owner and now current keeper decided not to sell the car on. The odometer showed then 89484 miles as it still does today, incredibly this original Rivolta has not turned a wheel since that day 35 years ago! The Rivolta has stood the test of time well, the 327 Chevrolet engine runs and sounds magnificent, although we would recommend appropriate inspections. The brakes are free and the General Motors manual four-speed gearbox appears to select all gears without fault. The car is in need of re-commissioning as would be expected having been stored in a barn for 35 years. There is evidence that the damp has started to take effect; although very solid, the paintwork is starting to show micro blisters. The interior is in remarkably good although somewhat patinated condition, with a wealth of totally original dials including an altimeter. Offered here is a completely original piece of classic Italian styling ready for a new lease of life and yearning for some use having been tucked away for so long.

The original Ford Sierra RS Cosworth was the first Ford to wear the Cosworth badge and was introduced at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show as a means of homologating the Sierra for Group A Touring Car racing, only 5545 were built. With its outlandish rear wing and stunning white bodywork this particular three-door Sierra RS Cosworth bears all the hallmarks of that revered type of road car, the original homologation model. The dashboard is in beautiful condition (a known weak spot on any Sierra), the body hugging Recaro seats are in superb order, even the gear knob and steering wheel still retain their factory grain finish. The pedal rubbers and original Ford rubber mats look virtually new so, clearly this Cosworth has led a very pampered life. The mileage recorded on this car is just under 3,500 miles, but is unwarranted as little service history is available and w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

the previous owner to the last registered keeper is now deceased. Silverstone Auctions have spent considerable time trying to verify this mileage, which we believe to be genuine, and would be delighted to hear from any previous owner, dealer or garage that can help us confirm the mileage. There is a BRDC club badge on the boot and a DAMS Motorsport decal which look to have been there for many years, both of which may help to identify it.... This particular Sierra Cosworth has been in private storage for many years with our vendor and as such has seen very little use on public roads. In November 2012 he sent the car for a ÂŁ1,700 (various bills are available in the history file) mechanical health-check by BBR GTi of Brackley in Northampton, who subsequently reported the car to drive without fault. The way the engine pulls and accelerates through the gears suggests that this is still very much the case today! The only known item that is not to original specification is the exhaust, which sadly is no longer available in standard form today. The bodywork is in superb condition, all panels seem original and the paint has a deep lustre throughout. All the doors and lids shut cleanly and panel gaps are narrow and consistent. Sold with a new MoT, this Sierra Cosworth really is a stunning car and is ready to be shown or driven in equal measures. SilverstoneAuc tions

1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster LHD Registration: 680 XUH Chassis Number: 877844 Engine Number: R68849 Estimate (£): 55,000 - 65,000

It is difficult to imagine the impact that the Jaguar E-type had when it was launched back in 1961. When the average saloon had a top speed of 70 mph and most were desperately dull, the E-type was an instant sensation, pre-empting computer aided design. The pre-eminent aerodynamist Malcom Sayer uniquely applied complex mathematical formulae to create the stunning E-type shape. Ironically he hated being called a stylist, yet he designed what is arguably one of the most beautiful cars ever seen. Today manufacturers build hundreds of prototypes when developing a new car; Jaguar built just a handful of cars prior to launch and the story of the E-type is now legendary around the globe. We are informed by the vendor that this particular car was the first car to be exported to New York in Masons Black and, as such, was a special order from w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

Browns Lane. It’s Heritage Certificate confirms its date of manufacture as the 8th of August 1962 and it was despatched to the United States on the 17th August 1962. When new this particular E Type was finished in Masons Black with contrasting Red leather interior and led a much pampered life in the United States until it was repatriated to the UK, in December of 1990 and subsequently purchased by its current and only UK owner. We are informed by the vendor that the car was then subject to a major mechanical overhaul which included removal of the engine which was then completely stripped and rebuilt. As such, it is a leak free unit that runs exceptionally sweetly with no errant noises and strong, fuss free power delivery. ‘680 XUH’ was then subsequently kept in secure dry storage and was the subject of a sympathetic rolling restoration over the next few years to keep the car in fine fettle. In 2008 the car was the subject of a major bodywork restoration project. The vendor informs us of the presence of paperwork and photos indicating various stages of the bodywork restoration, including the fitting of a new bonnet, and a further bill in March of 2008 for £10,000.

This car has bills totalling just under £24,000 for parts alone and one could easily spend close to £100,000 on a full restoration, so the economics of resuscitating a dead E-Type just don’t add up.

Since the prototype was unveiled in 1963, the Porsche 911 has gone on to become perhaps the most famous sports car of all time. A classically Germanic blend of engineering excellence and austerely beautiful design, it remains to this day perhaps the only supercar that can be reliably used every day. In 1973 it had already been 10 years since the 911 was first introduced and the spirit of the 911 was as alive as ever. This year brought some major innovations, like the characteristic shock-absorbing bumpers, the ‘ducktail’ and ‘whale-tail’ and a completely galvanized body. In the same year, one of the most influential models in the 911 history was introduced: the Carrera RS. Although in 1973 the ‘E’, ‘T’ and ‘S’ had a 2.4 engine, the RS had a tuned engine with a bigger bore, making for 2681cc of displacement. A year later the new models (G-series) w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

would be equiped with a detuned version of this 2.7 engine. The 2.7 S was produced in lower numbers in Europe than in America, despite the fact that engine output was 25 bhp higher. Even fewer Right-Hand Drive examples were sold and the example on offer today is one of the few survivors. First delivered to a Mr D Ballie of Glasgow on 20th September 1975, this early chrome S model boasts a lovely history, including the original stamped maintenance records from 1975 to 1980. There are even original Blaupunkt radio manuals and warranties in the service wallet. Subject to significant recent expenditure, NCS 290P has had only three previous owners, the last from 1976 to 2010. Recent work has included new exhaust, new carpets, new fuel tank, pump, filter, lines, metering unit and injectors. In addition, the car sits proudly on new Fuchs wheels and new tyres. Supplied with an MoT until June 2014, this delightful Porsche is presented in white with excellent black interior and is a car that can genuinely be used every day.

Dr.Greg Beacham turned his hobby of restoring Jaguar Mk.IIs into a business with a global reputation. He soon appreciated that with the iconic looks of the Mk.II a market existed for a totally revised engineering package to compliment the original shape. Using the original identification of early cars the bodyshell was completely restored becoming indistinguishable from new. The suspension was then used from later model Jaguar saloons, namely the XJ40 which allowed the fitting of independent rear suspension. This gave the Mk.II an excellent ride quality and handling to match. It also provided the Beacham Jaguars with a stance evident of special development. The interiors were again treated to special upgrades including air-conditioning and electric seats. The standard of wood varnishing was also taken to an extraordinary level.

The Ferrari 512 BB was the second generation of the 365 GT4 BB to have the 12 cylinder boxer engine. Enzo Ferrari , contrary to his engineer’s wishes, had delayed any mid-engine set-up, doubting the ability of his customer base to handle this configuration. The capacity was increased to nearly five litres and a dry sump fitted, then with suspension changes and various modifications Ferrari was back at number one in the supercar pecking order. The competence of the 512 BB was re-iterated by the world’s motoring press as many of them proclaimed this Ferrari as the best all-round Sports GT of the day in 1976. The Bosch fuel injected BB 512i was introduced in 1981 and was the very last of the series.

The Porsche 930 Turbo was a genuine ‘Supercar’ that defined the Seventies and Eighties. It was one of the fastest production cars available at the time. It was first seen at the 1973 Paris Auto Show and full production commenced two years later.

The bodywork received special treatment to produce one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear whale-tail.

All of the original service books, some old MoTs, spare key and recent bills can be found in the history file. More recently, ARR 450Y has been the subject of significant expenditure. Over £3,000 worth of parts alone have contributed to a significant overhaul of numerous mechanical components. In the last couple of months it has had new heat exchangers, heater pipes, new turbo, turbo pipes, o-rings, wastegate rebuild, brake lines, brake pads and a drive shaft overhaul. Furthermore, having received a large service the car is reported to be very fast and ready for extended use. With a full year’s MoT and presented in arguably the best colour combination of red bodywork with black leather interior, this stunning example has covered a mere 105,000 miles from new. This iconic Porsche remains one of the most recognised of all 911s with evocative bodywork and performance that became a benchmark. A true ‘Supercar’. SilverstoneAuc tions

Lot 647 >> 23 Window Samba

A Volkswagen, Germany letter of authenticity confirms that this 23 Window is an original microbus with sunroof and was delivered new to California on the 16th March 1962. Having resided in the U.S.A for the majority of its life, this bus was purchased by a Japanese collector looking for the perfect restoration candidate. In 2004 it was imported into Japan and was the subject of a bare-metal restoration. There are pictures available in the history file that show the car throughout the various stages of the rebuild. The 1600cc engine was rebuilt and clearly no expense was spared bringing this bus back up to an impeccable standard. The original Japanese registration document shows the car as first registered over there in 2004. In fact, this 23 window has covered only 2,200 miles since the restoration was SilverstoneAuc tions

The paintwork is finished in Turquoise Green and white and shows very little signs of use. The interior is in lovely condition in matching Turquoise and even has the original DeLuxe dash clock and fresh air blower. The seats are immaculately trimmed and one would be cautious inviting ten grubby friends to sit in the back, as the general presentation is superb.

The first generation of the Volkswagen Type 2 with the split windscreen, informally called the Microbus, Splitscreen or Splittie among modern fans, was produced from 8 March 1950 through the end of the 1967 model year. Among American enthusiasts, it is common to refer to the different models by the number of their windows. The sunroof DeLuxe with its additional eight small skylight windows is, accordingly, the 23-window. The 23- and later 21-window variants each carry the nickname ‘Samba’ and are the most desirable campers to collectors.

After 14 years of production and over 1 million units sold, Morris decided to carry out their final upgrades in 1962 for 1963 model year cars. The name Morris Minor Tourer was retained, although changes were sufficient for the new model to be given its own ADO internal development number. A larger version of the existing ‘A’ series engine had been developed in conjunction with cylinder head specialist, Harry Weslake, for the new ADO 16 Austin Morris 1100 range. This original 1963 Convertible has benefitted from the most painstaking restoration. It is an original UK right hand drive vehicle which retains its highly desirable original registration number of 152 XKE. Resplendent in Almond Green coachwork and Pearl Grey hood, this Deluxe model comes complete with the appropriate

Extras include heater, under-dash storage shelf, glove-box cubby aperture, period spot & fog lights, chrome badge bar, detachable picnic/luggage rack and full stainless steel exhaust system. Great to drive and surely a sound investment for the long-term as this marque is now recognised for its prominent role in the evolution of the history of the British Motor Corporation group. A comprehensive document folder featuring a BMIHT Heritage Certificate and reference manuals is presented with the vehicle for the new owner to enjoy.

The Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV Bertone Coupé, in its final evolution, was as ground breaking as Giugiaro’s earlier work for Bertone and it is still regarded as one of the prettiest Coupés ever produced. His design had a stunning visual balance, that was enhanced by the clever use of shaping to the front and rear screens. Introduced in late 1972 at Gardone Riviera, the final production run of the Bertone Coupé completely satisfied the Italian market, which was still sensitive to the over 2-litre tax system. Alfa Romeo would produce over 36,000 units to meet demand worldwide of this well regarded Bertone design.

Announced in 1986 along with the introduction with the Mk4 Escort, the next generation Escort RS Turbo (more commonly known as the Series 2) hit the showrooms later that year. It was one of the genuine hot hatches of its time. You could easily be forgiven for thinking that this car had just been built, such is the quality of the restoration and incredible attention to detail. We are informed by the vendor that this car was the subject of a nut and bolt restoration which took an amazing seven years to complete and cost in excess of £25,000. The quality of the paintwork can only be described as flawless with superb panel gaps that suggest the structure is both straight and taut with a mirror like finish to the glacier white paintwork; it’s as beautiful underneath as it is on top to.

The OZ performance alloys are shod with new Toyo sticky R888 Proxes all round and offer incredible traction to this car.

The introduction of the ZR-1 Corvette by Chevrolet in 1990 marked a big step forward for the venerable American sports car. In 1986 General Motors had acquired the Lotus Group and had access to their expertise that would enable the ZR-1 to be a competent contender in the world sports car market. Lotus were involved with the design of the aluminium block, 32 valve V8 engine that gave the Corvette sledgehammer performance. Given that this was the first design not to be GRP the performance made stunning reading. Top speed was over 180mph and 0-60 took just 4.4 seconds, but importantly is was a very robust sports car setting numerous endurance records as GM promoted the fact. One particular record set at Fort Stockton Raceway, Texas, was 24hrs at 175.885 mph with a distance of 4232.60 miles covered. Not surprisingly Galloway Corvettes have been a fixture at Le Mans 24hrs for many years. w w w.sil ve r s to n eau c t i o ns.com

Offered here is a Targa version of the ZR-1 manufactured in 1990 and finished in black with black interior, which was imported by the owner in 1997. Whilst on a driving tour of the West Coast he enjoyed the experience so much he went about shipping a version to the UK. One of the pleasing aspects of the ZR-1 is its light clutch compared with other super cars of the day. It has been well admired at various events and is a sliver medal recipient from the Corvette Owners meetings, mainly for its originality. The car has been maintained by renowned experts Geff Jeal and Tom Falconer and stored in an Airchamber. The history file contains records of expenditure, handbooks, old MOT certificates and spare keys. The owner still retains some spares, which can be purchased separately. Offered with 12 months MoT and road tax for 6 months, it is ready to drive away from the auction and move the odometer on from the 53338 that it currently shows. It is the model that launched the Corvette back into mainstream popularity because of its supercar performance and legendary reliability. Corvettes have defined the American Dream for a generation and at this guide it is surely tempting.

‘At last - a comfortable Mini’, was Motor magazine’s take on the Mini Clubman at its introduction in 1969. The Saloon version of the newcomer had been penned by ex-Ford stylist Roy Haynes as a replacement for the Riley Elf and Wolseley Hornet, while the related Estate car was intended to succeed the established Countryman and Traveller. However, a change of plan saw both round and square nosed Minis produced concurrently, until the Clubman range gave way to the Metro in 1980.

D280 YRN has been owned by the same family from new, passing from Uncle to Nephew.

The dash is pure Capri dominated by the rev counter and speedo, all gauges work correctly and all sit at normal operating temperatures, it really is nigh on 100 per cent. Turn the ignition key and the Cologne V6 bursts into life and quickly settles into a gentle burble, on the move there’s ample performance, the power delivery is smooth throughout the rev range, it’s all standard and just as it left the factory, there are no ominous noises emanating from the engine, gearbox or back axle meaning this is a properly sorted Capri. Finding another 280 Capri like this won’t be easy. This example ticks all the right boxes; condition, mileage, low ownership, history and is sold with a new MOT. This is the Capri with the most collectability potential and has to be one of the best available. SilverstoneAuc tions

It was a bold futuristic design but incorporated some state of the art Porsche innovation.

There are early servicing records and invoices along with the original purchase order and invoice from when the car was delivered new back in 1971. As you might expect from such a well maintained car with modest mileage, this TR6 looks highly original. That means it wears an appropriate patina rather than looking box fresh or newly restored. So, cosmetically, it isn’t perfect, but its slightly worn appearance is highly appropriate and there are no faults to cause any anguish.

The engine - very tidy in a clean engine bay - starts immediately and runs smoothly without any smoke or leaks. The straight six offers lots of grunt from low down and pulls well in all gears with overdrive on third and fourth that engages smoothly.

When Porsche introduced the 966 it was an all new design that shared few components from the previous 933 variant. It was the first 911 that was not air-cooled. The need for refinement and a higher expectation on power figures prompted Porsche to break with tradition. With the introduction of the 3600cc engine power was up to 320BHP giving impressive performance figures of 0-60 in 4.9 seconds and a top speed over 170mph. The bodywork styling started to adopt a more ‘aero’ look and the steeply raked screen completed the look.
