(b) The Seller has complied with all requirements relating to any export or import of the Lot as may be required, and has notified Coys in writing of any failure to comply with such requirements by the Seller or any previous owner of the Lot; (c) The Seller has notified Coys in writing of any material alterations to the Lot of which the Seller is aware and of any concerns expressed by third parties in relation to the authenticity, provenance, origin, age, condition or quality of the Lot and has provided Coys with all such information in the Seller’s possession; (d) In the case of a Motor Vehicle which may be lawfully used on a public road, complies with all statutory provisions and that there is in force any test certificate required by law in relation to such use, or the Seller has notified Coys in writing that any such vehicle cannot lawfully be used on a public road; (e) The Seller warrants that the information about the Lot given to Coys, including (for the avoidance of doubt and without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) all information set out in the Auction Entry Form, and statements made about it, is true 7.2 The Seller of a Lot not in the possession of Coys on its premises or under its control warrants and undertakes that the Lot will be available and in a deliverable state on demand by the Buyer; . 7.3 The Seller hereby acknowledges that Coys has entered into this contract in reliance on the representations set out in Conditions 7.1(a) to (e) and the information set out in the Auction Entry Form. 7.4 The Seller shall indemnify Coys against any and all actions, claims, actual costs (including legal and expert costs, fees and disbursements), demands, expenses, fines, liabilities, losses, penalties and proceedings arising out of the falsity of any of the warranties and representations set out in Conditions 7.1(a) to (f). 7.5. If Coys has reasonable cause for believing that the Seller is in breach of any one or more of the warranties set out in this Condition 7, Coys may by giving notice in writing to the Seller decline to sell the Lot, and the Seller shall be liable to Coys as though the Seller had withdrawn the lot from sale without Coys consent. If the Lot is in the possession of Coys, it may retain it until any sums due to Coys are paid, the cost of storage being borne by the Seller. 7.6 The Seller shall further indemnify Coys in respect of any actual legal or other costs reasonably incurred by it in investigating any claim concerning the ownership of a Lot and/or the Seller’s right to sell the Lot, the accuracy of the description of the Lot contained in the Catalogue or in defending any claim relating thereto, and Coys shall be entitled to withhold the amount of such costs from any payment due to be made to the Seller in accordance with Condition 2.
8. VEHICLE REGISTRATION NUMBERS 8.1. If the Seller wishes to sell any Motor Vehicle but to retain the right to the registration number of the Vehicle (“VRN”) , it is the Seller’s responsibility to notify Coys in writing either on the Auction Entry Form or sooner. 8.2. It shall be the Seller’s responsibility to take all necessary steps to ensure that the current VRN is reserved and that a new number is allocated prior to the Motor Vehicle being sold at the Auction and if he does not do so, Coys shall not be responsible for any loss or damage whatsoever and howsoever arising (including for the avoidance of doubt arising out of Coys’ negligence) out of the Seller’s loss of the right to the VRN following the sale of the Vehicle. 8.3. Coys may, at its own discretion, (without any assumption of responsibility or duty towards the Seller or the Buyer) take such steps to facilitate the reservation or transfer of any particular registration number as it thinks fit in order to assist the Seller or Buyer but strictly on condition that no claim attaches to Coys for taking any such steps whether arising out of Coys’ negligence or any other cause whatsoever. 9. RESERVES 9.1. The Seller may place a reserve price (“Reserve”) on any Lot prior to the Auction and once placed by the Seller, it may not be changed without the written consent of Coys. All Lots will be sold without Reserve unless a Reserve has been agreed by Coys in writing. 9.2. Where a Reserve has been agreed, only Coys may bid on behalf of the Seller. If the Seller makes such bid, then the Auctioneer may knock the Lot down to the Seller without observing any Reserve and the Seller shall pay to Coys the Buyer’s Premium in addition to the Seller’s Commission and Expenses. 9.3. Where a Reserve is agreed, Coys may in its sole discretion sell a Lot for less than the Reserve but shall account to the Seller as if the Lot had been sold for the Reserve. 9.4. Where no Reserve has been placed, the Seller may bid either personally or through the agency of any person. 9.5. If no Reserve has been placed on a Lot, Coys shall not be held liable should the Lot be purchased for a price below any lowest estimated selling price of the Lot given in any Catalogue, save insofar as and limited to the extent that the same arises out of the actual fault or negligence of Coys. 10. COMMISSION AND EXPENSES 10.1. The parties hereby acknowledge that Coys shall be entitled to deduct from the Hammer Price a Seller’s Commission of 10% plus VAT (or, in the case of automobilia, 15% plus VAT) or such other sum agreed by Coys in writing, plus any Expenses, and any other sums due from the Seller to Coys. 10.2. The Buyer shall pay (and the Seller acknowledges Coys’ entitlement to) a Buyer’s Premium equal to 15% of the first £50,000 or €50,000 of the Hammer Price, and 12.5% upon such of the Hammer Price as exceeds £50,000 or €50,000, plus VAT. 11. PHOTOGRAPHY AND ILLUSTRATIONS The Seller permits Coys without payment to photograph and make illustrations of any Lot and to use at its discretion any photograph or illustration of or in respect of a Lot supplied by the Seller, whether or not in conjunction with the Auction. The copyright in all photographs taken and illustrations made of any Lot by or on behalf of Coys shall be the absolute property of Coys. 12. COYS’ ESTIMATES AND DESCRIPTIONS 12.1. Coys make no warranty or representation as to the anticipated or likely selling price of any Lot. Any estimate given by Coys, whether written or oral and whether or not printed in any Catalogue for the Auction, as to the estimated selling price of any Lot is a statement of opinion only and may be subject to revision from time to time at Coys’ sole discretion and should not be relied upon as an indication of the actual selling price. 12.2. Coys shall not be liable to the Seller for any error or mis-statement in or omission from the description of any Lot in any Catalogue where:(a) Coys have been provided with such description by the Seller or any person on his behalf; or (b) Coys have provided the Seller with a copy of such description prior to publication of the
Catalogue and neither the Seller nor any person on his behalf have notified Coys in writing within seven days of any error or mis-statement in or omission from the description. 12.3. Any Motor Vehicle is sold as a collector’s item and not as a means of transport. Buyers are specifically warned that any vehicle sold as such may well have had parts replaced and paint renewed or be made up of parts from other vehicles the condition of which may be difficult to establish. Coys has to rely on information as to date, condition authenticity, maintenance, repairs and restoration provided by Sellers and does not, and cannot, undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lots to establish whether the vehicle or other Lot conforms with the description in the catalogue. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to carry out such inspection as he thinks necessary. Unless a vehicle is described as wholly original, the Buyer may not assume that all or any part of it is original. 12.4. No warranty is given by Coys as to the accuracy of the description of any Lot in any Catalogue or as to the age, authenticity, suitability, provenance, attribution, origin, condition, fitness for purpose, merchantable or satisfactory quality of any Lot or roadworthiness of any Motor Vehicle, and any warranties or conditions that would otherwise be implied by the Sale of Goods Act 1979 in relation to the foregoing are hereby expressly excluded. 12.5. Coys has no duty to the Seller to investigate the accuracy of the description of any Lot provided by or on behalf of the Seller. 13. WITHDRAWAL OF LOTS 13.1. The Seller may by notice in writing to Coys withdraw the Lot from the Auction. In the event of such withdrawal, the Seller shall within 14 days of withdrawal pay Coys the sums set out in this Condition 13. All such sums shall be payable to Coys as remuneration for the services performed by Coys down to the date of withdrawal, and not by way of penalty or liquidated damages. 13.2 In all cases of withdrawal, including under 7.5 above, the Seller shall be liable to pay Coys 10% of the estimated value of the Lot, notwithstanding that commission of a lesser, or no, amount had previously been agreed, to reflect the time, effort, loss of publicity and buyer’s premium suffered by Coys. The estimated value shall be the higher of:(a) The Seller’s estimate of value as previously notified to Coys or, if more than one figure, the highest figure or if none; (b) The value estimated in the Catalogue, or if more than one figure is given, the highest figure; (c) If none of the above apply such figure as Coys shall reasonably estimate as the value. (d) Plus in each case VAT on such fee and Expenses. 13.3. In the event that the Lot is withdrawn from the Auction after the publication of the Auction catalogue, the Seller shall in addition to the sum set out in Condition 13.2, be liable to pay Coys a further sum equal to the Buyer’s Premium (as defined in Condition 10.2 above) that would have been payable upon the Lot realising the aforesaid estimated value at Auction, plus VAT. 13.4. In the event that the Seller withdraws the Lot from the Auction, the Seller shall arrange for collection and removal of the Lot at his own expense within two working days after the date of withdrawal provided that the Seller may not collect the Lot unless and until any withdrawal fee payable under Conditions 13.2 and 13.3 shall have been paid in full. 14. UNSOLD LOTS 14.1 Where any Lot fails to sell at the Auction, Coys will have the sole and exclusive right to sell the Lot by private treaty within 14 days of the Auction date. These terms and conditions (including, for the avoidance of doubt, Condition 9 as to Reserves) shall govern any such sale by private treaty. 14.2. Unless Coys elects to sell the Lot by private treaty in accordance with Clause 14.1, the Seller shall arrange for the removal of any unsold Lot by 1.00 pm the day following the Auction or by such other time as agreed by Coys. 14.3. Failure to remove any unsold Lot pursuant to Condition 14.2 above will entitle Coys to charge the Seller a reasonable storage charge per day. The Seller shall further reimburse Coys for
any reasonable removal, insurance and other expenses. 14.4. If within 28 days after the Auction the Seller fails to give instructions to Coys regarding the disposal of the Lot, Coys shall have the exclusive right at its election to: (a) sell the Lot by private treaty, or (b) by Auction without Reserve, in either case in accordance with these Conditions. In such case, Coys shall be entitled to deduct from any sale price all sums owing to Coys including the Seller’s Commission and any charges incurred under this Condition 14. 15. RISK AND INSURANCE 15.1 The Lot shall at all times remain at the risk of the Seller until ownership of the Lot passes from the Seller to the Buyer under these Conditions. At no time shall ownership of the Lot pass to Coys other than in accordance with clause 21.4(e)(iii). 15.2 Until such time as risk passes to the Buyer in accordance with Condition 18, responsibility for arranging insurance for the Lot shall remain with the Seller, whereupon it shall pass to the Buyer. In no case shall Coys undertake responsibility for arranging insurance. 15.3. Coys will not be liable for any injury, loss or damage caused by any Lot unless caused by the negligence of Coys, its employees or agents in the ordinary course of their duties to Coys or by the Seller’s negligence or other breach of the Conditions. The Seller or the Buyer (as appropriate) shall compensate Coys in full in respect of all claims and proceedings brought against Coys in respect of injury, loss or damage caused by the Seller’s or Buyer’s (as appropriate) negligence or breach of any obligation under the Conditions. 16. THE BUYER 16.1. The Buyer shall be the highest bidder at the Auction. The Buyer’s bid shall form the basis of the Hammer Price. Any dispute as to any bid shall be settled by the Auctioneer at his absolute discretion. 16.2. Every bidder shall be deemed to act as principal unless prior to the commencement of the Auction there is a written acceptance by Coys that a bidder acts as agent on behalf of the named principal, and that its principal has agreed to and/ or is bound by these Conditions; in which case he shall be jointly liable with the principal by these Conditions. 16.3. No person shall be entitled to bid at the Auction without first having completed and delivered to Coys a bidder’s registration form and bidders attention is drawn to the information in the Catalogue under the heading “General Information”. 17. ABSENTEE BIDS Whilst the interest of prospective Buyers are best served by attendance at the Auction, Coys will if so instructed execute bids on behalf of prospective bidders.

SALE 18.1. A contract of sale is made between the Seller and the Buyer on the acceptance of a bid by the fall of the Auctioneer’s hammer. Coys is not a party to the contract of sale and has no liability for any act or default by the Seller or the Buyer. 18.2. The Buyer shall :(a) Immediately upon a Lot is sold, give to Coys his name and address and, if so requested, proof of identity if he has not already done so; and (b) Pay to Coys as agent for the Seller the Purchase Price in accordance with Condition 20.1 unless credit terms have been agreed with Coys in writing before the Auction. 18.3. Full payment for all Lots must be made to Coys by means of bankers draft, cash, telegraphic transfer or debit card in pounds sterling or the currency in which the sale was conducted. Where the Buyer wishes to pay by cheque and Coys has agreed that the Buyer may do so, the Lot will not be released until the cheque has been cleared. 18.4. No Lot may be collected until the Purchase Price has been received by Coys and payments by a Buyer to Coys may be applied by Coys towards any sums due from that Buyer to Coys on any account whatsoever notwithstanding any
directions to the contrary by the Buyer or his agent whether express or implied. 18.5. The ownership of the Lot will pass to the Buyer only when the Purchase Price in cleared funds has been received by Coys. 18.6. Immediately a Lot is sold the risk shall pass to the Buyer notwithstanding that possession will not be given and ownership will not pass to the Buyer before payment of the Purchase Price in full and Coys will not be responsible for any damage to or the loss or destruction of the Lot or any injury, loss or damage caused by the Lot unless caused by the negligence of or other breach of duty by Coys, its employees or agents in the ordinary course of their duties to Coys. The Buyer will compensate Coys in full in respect of all claims and proceedings brought against Coys in respect of any loss or damage to the Lot or injury, loss or damage caused by it not arising from the negligence of or other breach of duty by Coys, its employees or agents in the ordinary course of their duties to Coys. 19. VALUE ADDED TAX VAT payable by the Buyer on the Hammer Price may be refundable by Customs and Excise on proof of export, but Coys makes no warranties in this regard. 20. PAYMENT OF SALE PROCEEDS 20.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing by both Coys and the Seller, the Buyer shall pay Coys forthwith and in any event no later than 35 days from the Auction the Purchase Price. 20.2. Coys shall pay the Net Sale Proceeds to the Seller not later than 35 days after the Auction, or within five working days after receiving cleared funds from the Buyer, whichever shall be the later. Coys shall be under no liability as a result of or arising out of any delay or failure by the Buyer in making payment. 20.3 Unless an alternative method of payment has been agreed by Coys in writing, payment of the Net Sale Proceeds shall be made by sending to the Seller a cheque drawn on Coys’ client account by first class post at the Seller’s risk. 20.4.

Such notice will draw attention to the 14 day limit for the provision of instructions as set out in Condition 21.4 below.

1966 Ford Mustang Race Car Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £8,000 - £10,000
The first-generation Ford Mustang was manufactured by the Ford Motor Company from April 1964 until 1973. The introduction of the Mustang created a new class of automobile known as the pony car. The Mustang’s styling, with its long hood and short deck, proved wildly popular and inspired a host of imitators. It was initially introduced as a hardtop and convertible with the fastback version put on sale the following year. At the time of its introduction, the Mustang, sharing its underpinnings with the Falcon, was slotted into a compact car segment. With each revision, the Mustang saw an increase in overall dimensions and in engine power. The 1971 model saw a drastic redesign to its predecessors. After an initial surge, sales were steadily declining, as Ford began working on a new generation Mustang. With the onset of the 1973 oil crisis, Ford was prepared, having already designed the smaller Mustang II for the 1974 model year. This new car had no common components with preceding models. This “mean” looking ‘66 Mustang has been prepared for club racing and sprints, fitted with a high output 5 litre V8 motor, quick shift sequential gearbox, and the correct racing seats and harnesses. Still maintaining its striking and aggressive looks, the car is as at home on the streets of London as it is on the start-line of Santa Pod.
Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1985 Porsche 944 Coupe Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £9,000 - £13,000
‘Here was a model much more in the Porsche tradition, a 217km/h (135mph) coupé with sparkling acceleration and superlative handling. Some 90,000 were built during a 10-year manufacturing life.’ – Jonathan Wood, ‘Porsche – The Legend’. Announced in 1981, the 944 was the third of Porsche’s new family of front-engined sports cars. The first of the line, the 924, had arrived in November 1975 and drew heavily on Volkswagen/Audi components: the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, overhead-camshaft engine being a development of the Audi 100’s and the four-speed transaxle transmission a VW unit. Six years later, along came its close relative – the 944 – which was constructed along similar lines and from a distance hard to tell apart from its 924 progenitor. Beneath the bodywork (50mm wider than the 924’s) was a 2.5-litre, 163bhp overhead-camshaft ‘four’ – in effect half of the 928’s V8 bored out – fitted with twin balancer shafts to counter the vibration often encountered in such units. The rear transaxle – a five-speed affair this time – was retained, while the 924-type running gear was suitably up-rated to cope with the 944’s superior performance. Subsequent developments included a Turbo, 16-valve 944S/S2 and a cabriolet. First registered in 1985, this early Porsche 944 has been owned by just one enthusiast for the past 7 years. The Porsche is said to drive and perform very well, and is offered with full VOSA MOT history to support the extremely low recorded mileage of 23,000 miles. Offered in the classic 1980s combination of Guards Red with a Black Leather interior, forget about firing up the Quattro, instead go with this far cooler, more refined, unburstable modern classic.

1989 Ford Escort XR3i Cabriolet 11,000 miles from new Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: WF0LXXGKALLU54126
Estimate: £6,000- £8,000
When Ford launched the Escort XR3, the benchmark VW Golf GTi had ruled the hot hatchback market for several years. However, Ford’s new offering was a package that combined the looks, performance, and handling demanded by customers in the early eighties. With the introduction of the fuel injected XR3i in 1983, performance was further improved and the XR range captivated a new younger audience who had moved on from the old rear-wheel drive Escorts beloved by their parents. Also introduced in 1983, the Escort Cabriolet in both XR3i and Ghia specifications was Ford of Europe’s first convertible since the 1960s. Based around a reinforced monocoque chassis, the convertible was engineered by German coachbuilder Karmann. An elegant and practical design, it featured the same all-round independent suspension, rack and pinion steering and brakes as its more common hatchback siblings. Powered by a fuel-injected 1597cc SOHC four-cylinder engine allied to a five-speed manual transmission, the XR3i Cabriolet was capable of nearly 120mph and became the ‘darling’ of the 1980s overnight. This stunning 1990 XR3i is finished in a very sporting and period shade of ice white with a classic grey interior and is in truly remarkable condition having lived a sheltered life in the care of the same family for the last 11 years, residing in an underground car park in Chelsea, London. Purchased in 1990, this sparkling little cabriolet has been its owner’s pride and joy ever since and has spent most of its life being admired in her garage. As one would expect the condition of the car is very good and appears untouched. It’s accompanied by a history file which includes its UK V5C and bills for recent work carried out by her local specialists. With just 11,000 miles from new this wonderful XR3i is ready for its next adventure.

1996 Aston Martin DB7 Volante 18,000 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £28,000 - £33,000
Introduced in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin’s first six-cylinder model since production of the DBS had finished in 1971. Designed by Ian Callum at the same time as he designed the coupe, the Volante looks elegant both hood up or down, much like the earlier Aston Martin drophead cars. Well received, it attracted new customers worldwide, with the traditional layout of the curvaceous two door coupé body, robust six-cylinder engine and a luxury interior. Power was supplied by an all-alloy, double overhead camshaft, supercharged, 24-valve, in-line six-cylinder engine which produced 335bhp at 5750rpm. The DB7 was undoubtedly the catalyst for the modern line of Aston Martin. Presented in its original Obsidian Black Metallic finish with a matching Raven Black leather interior, this DB7 Volante shows a mere 18,000 miles from new, supported by a full service record. With just 3 former keepers, the DB7 is said to both look and drive superbly. A wonderful example of this swiftly appreciating classic, and the genesis of the modern Aston Martin line; a great investment and a rewarding driving experience.
1970 Mustang Mach 1 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: OT05H137353
Estimate: £28,000 - £35,000
1969 was the benchmark year for Ford Mustang in its proliferation of performance names and engines. No fewer than six factory performance Mustang models were available (GT, Boss 302, Boss 429, Shelby GT350, Shelby GT500 and the Mach 1). Additionally, seven variations of V-8s were available in the ‘69–’70 models; most of these also available in the new Mach 1. The Mach 1 started with a V8 powered ‘Sportsroof’ body and added numerous visual and performance enhancing items such as matte black hood treatment with hood pins, hood scoop (including optional Shaker scoop), competition suspension, chrome pop-open gas cap, revised wheels with Goodyear Polyglas tires, chrome exhaust tips, deluxe interior, livery and dealer optional chin spoiler, rear deck spoiler, and rear window louvers. Standard on Mach 1’s was a fierce but cosmetic hood scoop that had integrated turn-signal lights mounted in the back. A more functional option was the signature “Shaker hood”, an air scoop mounted directly to the top of the motor, used to collect fresh air and so named for its tendency to “shake” above the rumbling V8 below. The interior came complete with teak wood grain details, full sound deadening material and high-back sport bucket seats. In 1969 endurance driver Mickey Thompson took three Mach 1 Mustangs to the Bonneville salt flats for a feature in Hot Rod magazine, in the process setting 295 speed and endurance records over a series of 500-mile and 24-hour courses. This 1970 H Code Mustang Mach 1 comes with the 351 Windsor engine which has been stroked to 408 cubic inches by drag racing specialist Dave Billadeau. The estimated 300bhp (as tested on a rolling road in November 2017) is put down through a 4 speed top loader manual transmission with Hurst Shifter. We understand that the car underwent a full restoration circa. 2010 prior to the current vendor obtaining the car and there is an exhaustive list of extras and expense which has been lavished on the car. This can be seen in the extensive history file and the car also benefits from being authenticated with a Marti report. A wonderful example of this true American muscle car and presented in excellent condition throughout, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a well sorted and appreciating classic.
1993 Lotus Esprit S4 Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: SCC08290RHA61160
Estimate: £15,000 - £20,000
In 1970 Tony Rudd, who had arrived at Lotus the previous year, proposed two new model development projects. The first, Project M50, resulted in the 1974 Elite. The second, Project M70, meant to develop a successor to the Europa which, like the Europa, was to be a two-door fixed-head mid-engined coupé. Work began on the new car in mid-1971 with production of a 1:4 scale model. According to Italdesign, Chapman was disappointed with the wind-tunnel test results with the model and halted the project, but the Italian carrozzeria pressed on and built a full-size mock-up on a stretched, modified Europa chassis. That nameless prototype, often simply called “the Silver Car”, appeared on the Italdesign stand at the 1972 Turin Auto Show and convinced Chapman to approve further development. In 1993, another exterior and interior revamp of the car resulted in the S4 which was the first model to include power steering. The exterior redesign was done by Julian Thompson, which included a smaller rear spoiler placed halfway up the rear decklid. Other major changes were to the front and rear bumpers, side skirts and valence panels. New five spoke alloy wheels were also included in the redesign. The S4 retained the same horsepower as the SE at 264 hp. Presented in Lotus yellow with magnolia interior the example on offer presents well, the paintwork is good with no real signs of wear and the interior shows little sign of its age. Included in the history file is a UK registration document and current Mot test certificate along with bills of maintenance work. In good driving order this Esprit offers a fantastic opportunity to acquire a much collectable model of the Lotus brand. :
1995 Aston Martin Virage Supercharged V8 Wide Body One of three. Under 10,000 miles from new Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £220,000- £280,000
Shown at the 1988 Birmingham Motor Show in Coupe form, with first deliveries in 1990, the sensational new Virage re-stated its forerunner’s muscular looks in the modern idiom, slightly narrower but with increased interior space. With 330bhp, a top speed approaching 160mph was possible and 60mph in under 7 seconds. By 1990 the Virage Volante was announced, with first deliveries in 1992/3. Meanwhile Aston Martin’s Works Service had developed and produced a high performance version of the Virage Coupe equipped with a host of upgrades to improve the overall performance still further.
1 of just 3 examples produced with this exclusive coachwork incorporating the front and rear styling of the Supercharged V8 Vantage model. This particular example is finished in handsome Rolls-Royce Royal Blue with Magnolia hides piped blue. Walnut veneers and a blue Mohair hood finish the luxurious specifications. Equipped with automatic transmission, Sports exhaust and comprehensive Hi-Fi, Bluetooth, I-pod integration and reversing camera.
Sold previously by Nicholas Mee & Co, and featuring in their FullBore E Magazine (Issue 13), this stunning and highly equipped example has covered under 10,000 miles from new and received over 20 Aston Martin services, regardless of the low miles. Without doubt one of the finest Virage Volante examples we have seen, this exclusive car, costing circa ÂŁ250k when new, is in outstanding condition throughout.
1999 Lotus Elise £150,000 build Campaigned by Mark Waldren/Streber Motorsport in period Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: SSCGA1117WHE3402
Estimate: £30,000 - £40,000
Developed from a standard production Elise rolling chassis, this lightweight (and high-tech) racing car was built in 1998 to contest the 1999 British Speed Hillclimb Championship. The bodywork is constructed from ultra light autoclaved composite carbon fibre, unpainted in the quest for ultimate weight loss. The chassis remains the ground breaking extruded aluminium epoxy bonded assembly by Hydro Raufoss UK Ltd. With unprecedented accuracy and excellent torsional rigidity, this was deemed a perfect base for a competition car. Mid-mounted is the 1400cc aluminium 4 cylinder, 16 valve K series engine, which was tuned to produce 300bhp, aided in large by internal componentry developed by Turbo Technics. Breathing through a Garrett VNT (Variable Nozzle Turbocharger) which allows the pitch of a perimeter ring of vanes to be altered, giving optimum performance over a wide speed range. The turbocharger is considerably modified by Turbo Technics and includes a computer controlled wastegate. The turbine spins at up to 140,000 rpm, with an exhaust gas temperature of 1000 “c, and the air is cooled by a four stage charge cooler. Power to weight ratio is of prime importance, true to the Colin Chapman legacy. It is essential that the driver Mark Waldron maintains a constant 76kg, the Corbeau carbon fibre Kevlar reinforced seat and 6 point Willans safety harness with aluminium adjusters are located as close as possible to the centreline of the car, however, suspension settings are precisely measured at each of the four contact patches of the dual compound Bridgestone tyres and any imbalance will upset the handling of the car. The Lotus Sport Original Performance Products front and-roll bar and uniball rear toe link assembly developed for competition have been installed to cope with the increased loads applied during racing. The braking system is largely as the production car, using the aluminium metal matrix ventilated discs. The pedal box has been slightly modified and incorporates a larger accelerator pedal and an adjustable brake proportioning valve has been introduced to control front to rear brake balance. James Lister & Sons produce the flexible racing hoses and fittings to cope with the pressures under racing conditions Supplied new direct from the Lotus factory in Hethel, this well-known Elise, prepared at a cost of £150,000 by Streber Motorsport in Devon, was campaigned by Mark Waldren from 1999 to 2001, winning the Hillclimb Championship in 2001. Mark sold the car in April 2003 to its current keeper who to this day still owns the car. Presented in excellent condition and offered with its history file, this is a wonderful example of a competitive and hugely entertaining car, offered at a fraction of the build cost.

1957 Austin A35 HRDC Race Car Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: A2S5 HCS 15332 / HRDC – 019
Estimate: £20,000 - £25,000
Introduced in 1956, the A35 replaced the highly successful Austin A30. The name reflected the larger and more powerful 34hp A-Series engine enabling a slightly higher top speed and better acceleration. Similar in appearance to the A30 except for a larger rear window aperture and a painted front grill with chrome horse-shoe surround, both had 13” wheels and was offered as a two or four door saloon, ‘Countryman’ estate and van. The A35 was successfully raced in its day and can still be seen today at historic race meetings. This wonderful A35 presented in Old English White was built to full HRDC 2017 race specification by the current vendor. This bare metal rebuild included new sills, floorplans and door braces; as well as a full HRDC rollcage and fibreglass wings, bonnet and boot. We are advised that all the safety equipment included seat and harnesses are in date and the car is described to be both competitive and easy to drive. The car is eligible for HRDC Academy and A Series Challenge, HRDC Touring Greats, Coy’s Trophy and CTCRC Pre ’66; among others. Recently the car was driven to First in Class at the 2017 Donington Historic Festival and was also chosen to compete in the St Mary’s Trophy at the Goodwood Revival in 2016, driven by the enigmatic Sir Chris Hoy. The car comes with a detailed history file containing all the invoices for the restoration / build, as well as all the necessary papers for racing and we are told that the current builder and preparer of the car is available to offer race support to the new owner should it be required. A wonderful prospect for the 2018 season and a sure ticket into some of the most exhilarating racing there is on offer.
1979 Lotus Sunbeam Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: R4DCY9L158139
Estimate: £30,000 - £40,000
The road version of the Sunbeam Lotus Rallye, the winner of the Rallye World Championships in 1981, the Sunbeam Lotus was launched in 1979 at the Geneva Motor Show. The first cars were supplied in the summer of 1979, offered all in black with silver stripes and a grey interior. The rolling body shells from the Linwood factory were brought to Lotus in Norfolk by road, where the twin cam engine and ZF 5-speed gearbox were fitted, in addition to other items such as a larger radiator alloy wheels. Then cars were brought back to the end control to Linwood, inspected and despatched to the dealer network. By 1981 the Sunbeam Lotus enjoyed a facelift, with larger headlamps, a modified radiator grill, different exterior mirrors and a larger fuel tank, in addition to modifications to the engine. In order to boost sales the Sunbeam changed colour to Moonstone Bue, with the option of either silver or black stripes. The car saw much success in the World Rally Championship - in 1980, Henri Toivonen won the 29th Lombard RAC Rally in one, and, in 1981, the Sunbeam Lotus brought the entire manufacturer’s championship to Talbot. This extremely well sorted works specification Sunbeam Lotus has been rebuilt for rallying to a high level of detail. The starting point is the shell which has been strengthened and seam welded, and modified with a works tub to accomodate a larger fuel tank and dry sump oil tank. The wheel arches have been extended to Group 4 specification, and a Safety Device bolt-in cage has been fitted. The wiring loom has been replaced with a rally-designed item featuring pop-out fuses. The engine has been treated to a rebuild by specialist Phil Davison (featuring omega pistons and conrods, and a big valve head), and is now running with dry sump lubrication, which helps it to produce 240bhp (a print out is available to support this). Fueling is handled by 50mm Weber carburettors, breathing is improved by a Tony Law exhaust manifold and system, and cooling is bettered with an alloy radiator. The rebuilt motor drives through a Martin Jones 5 speed ZF gearbox, and handling is taken care of by Bilstein all around, with rose-jointed front track control arms, works specification steering rack and thicker tie rods. Finally braking is addressed with the fitting of four pot front, and two pot rear calipers astride vented front and solid rear discs. Offered with a recent MoT certificate and MSA historic papers, this is wonderful rally car which is ready to compete. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1964 Jaguar XK120 Roadster Evocation Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 001
Estimate: £23,000 - £28,000
It was at the 1948 London Motor Show that Jaguar virtually threw the sports car world into turmoil with its stunning XK120. Here was a car with incredible style and looks, a powerful six cylinder engine installed in an outstanding chassis and a remarkably low price – a quarter that of a V12 Ferrari with similar performance. The combination was unbeatable and without doubt the XK120 was an absolute milestone for both Jaguar and the motor industry as a whole. XK120 orders flooded in, ironic as it was designed as an interim model to publicise the XK engine for the new Mk VII saloon – Jaguar had only planned to produce around 200! This unique XK120 has been built to the highest standards and incorporates many original XK and S-type parts which would cost a fortune to replicate today. To name a few, this includes its windscreen, front and rear bumpers, lights and dashboard dials. In terms of appearance the car is easily mistaken for a genuine XK120 and is arguably one of the best evocation XK120’s we have seen in a very long time. Under the bonnet the car is fitted with a 420 Daimler engine giving this lightweight bodied XK120 fantastic performance. Driving beautifully, this car truly represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a wonderful example of a XK120 at the fraction of the price.
1999 Mitsubishi Carisma Ex – DTCC Tim Coronel Registration Number: N/A
Chassis Number: TBC
Estimate: £19,000 - £22,000
The Mitsubishi Carisma is a large family car produced for the European market by Mitsubishi from 1995 to 2004. The model name was derived from a combination of the English car and the Greek kharisma, meaning “divine gift”.It was co developed with Volvo, sharing its Chassis with the first generation of the Volvo S40, and built at the NedCar factory in Born, Netherlands, which the two companies co-owned at the time. Over 350,000 were built during its production run. The car was judged to be a reliable, low cost vehicle but lacked visual appeal and competed by price and size in two very competitive markets without a strong selling point. The Mitsubishi charisma on offer here previously ran in the Dutch Touring Car Championship from 1999 to 2003 winning all four season. The car was driven by Tim Coronel, Tim made his first steps in racing by winning the Dutch Citroën AX Cup in 1994 as a 22-year-old. He followed this with a move into single-seaters finishing seventh and then fifth in two years in the Formula Opel Eurocup. In 1997 he raced in German F3. He moved to Touring Cars in 1998 racing a Mitsubishi Carisma in the Dutch Championship
1987 Mercedes-Benz 500SE 23,000 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBC
Estimate: £10,000 - £15,000
In 1979 the type series W 126 replaced the preceding model from the series W 116. In the 1980’s the 126 became the icon of West German politicians and business tycoons. Members of the federal government were almost exclusively driven in these cars, however, usually in an armoured version. The former chancellor Helmut Kohl had a model from this series and put it out of service only after it had done ca. 500,000 kilometres. Even Nelson Mandela had a 500 SE. A total of 74,060 units of the coupé were built. This blue with blue interior example has been subject to very little use, and is said to be in excellent condition. With only 23,000 miles from new and complete with all tools and books, this example is one for the collector. To be offered with a fresh MoT.
1991 Honda NSX Rare Right Hand Drive Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: NA11000986
Estimate: £27,000 - £32,000
The legendary Honda NSX (standing for New Sportscar Experimental) was developed by the Honda Motor Corporation between 1984 and its eventual launch in 1990, with major chassis and suspension input from three times F1 World Champion, Ayrton Senna. The NSX featured a state of the art 3.0-litre V6 ‘VTEC’ engine (variable valve timing) and an all-aluminium monocoque body, encompassing a revolutionary extruded aluminium alloy frame and suspension. This made the car extremely light and extremely strong. Other game-changing features included 4 channel ABS brakes, titanium connecting rods in the engine and later in the model’s life – an electric power steering system as well as an upgrade to a 3.2-litre V6 engine. The car was the first real Japanese ‘Supercar’, proving itself and quickly establishing respect from its key competitors. Production continued right up until 2005, with only subtle changes made throughout its life. Finished in Sebring Silver with contrasting black leather, this beautifully maintained NSX has recently been taken to Honda for a full 96 point inspection, as well as road test to ensure that any and all minor faults were rectified as well as giving the car a thorough service. New coolant, gearbox oil as well as an engine service was included. Additionally the car has had its cambelt’s changed as well as having new rocker gaskets fitted. Fitted with the Type-R bonnet. This on-the-button example was purchased by its current custodian from a friend who worked for McLaren and was relocating to Spain at the time. Knowing how much fun the car was to drive, we are told it was an easy decision and the car has brought its current custodian to many local events such as Goodwood, Beaulieu and Wilton. Sadly, due to yet another house move, this NSX is regretfully back on the market. Being offered for sale for a very honest reason and described to be in good to excellent condition in all respects, this represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase one of the world’s most recognisable supercars are a very realistic price.
Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster Registration Number: EU taxes paid
Chassis Number: IE13084
Estimate: £85,000 -£95,000
One of the greatest post-war sports cars, Jaguar’s E-Type made immediate headlines on its launch at the Geneva Show in March 1961. Here was a sleek and beautiful 150mph car with a competition pedigree: 0-60mph and 0-l00mph in 6.9 and 16.2 seconds respectively. It could be bought for just over £2,000, almost half the cost of an Aston Martin or Ferrari. A direct descendant of the XK120 and competition C and D-Type models that so dominated 1950s sports car racing, the E-Type shared its 265bhp 3.8 litre twin-cam straight-six engine with the XK150 ‘S’, mated to a Moss four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios. Beneath the William Lyons/Malcolm Sayer-styled body, available in either closed or roadster form, the steel monocoque chassis sported all-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, mounted inboard at the back. Motor magazine road tested a UK spec E-Type 4.2 in 1964. They summarized it as “The new 4.2 supersedes the early 3.8 as the fastest car Motor has tested. The absurd ease which 100mph can be exceeded in a 1⁄4 mile never failed to astonish. 3,000 miles of testing confirms that this is still one of the world’s outstanding cars.” The example on offer here has been the subject of a meticulous restoration by its previous custodian, part of a private collection in Canada where all the stages of restoration have been photographed and logged in the comprehensive history file that accompanies the car. Its reported that an overhaul of the engine, gearbox and suspension was also carried out during this time. Presented in the charming colour combination of opalescent maroon with a beige hood and maroon interior, the car comes complete with a rare factory hardtop. Since its restoration the e-type has seen regular but light use and therefore still presents extremely well. This 1966 Jaguar E-type Series 1 Convertible is one of the last of the very sought after Series 1’s, and is said to be in excellent condition; it drives smoothly and the exhaust sounds like no other on the road.
2006 Lotus Exige GT3 Registration Number: N/A
Chassis Number: CR03
Estimate: £60,000 - £70,000
A prototype of the Lotus Sport Exige GT3 race car was unveiled at the annual FIA GT Championship presentation ceremony outside the world famous Casino in Monte Carlo, Monaco on 02 December, 2005. The following day (03 December 2005), the first test for the car took place at the high speed Paul Ricard High Tech Test Track in Southern France under FIA supervision, the first stage in the Lotus Sport Exige GT3 becoming eligible for FIA GT3 competition. This FIA series, which will started in 2006, is for race cars that have an equal power to weight, and that have a direct lineage to their road going versions. The Lotus Sport Exige GT3 entrant had been developed by Lotus Sport, the performance arm of Lotus Cars and is a derivative of the standard Lotus Exige coupe model. Weighing in at approximately 750 kg, it stays true to the ”performance through light weight” core Lotus philosophy. The car uses a race prepared 1.8 2ZZ-GE VVTL-i engine with a Roots type supercharger and air to air intercooler which utilises the Lotus T4e Engine Control Unit to produce 285 hp at 7,800 rpm. This gives an impressive power to weight ratio of 380 hp / tonne or 2.6 kg / PS The vendor bought the car we have on offer today directly from the race team at the end of the season in 2006, with the deal brokered at Lotus Motorsport and the Vendor viewing the car at Hethel. The car was built by Lotus Motorsport to campaign in the 2006 British GT Championship, a total of 3 cars were built for the British GT Championship after the team decided around 2/3rd of the way through the season they were doing well but worried that they only had 2 cars and if one became damaged they would be at risk of losing Championship points. They built this 3rd car which was bought by the current vendor and is offered here.
1984 BMW 635 ‘Marlboro’ Group A Touring car -HTP papers -Successful in the Peter Auto Group A Heritage Touring Car Series Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £210,000 - £230,000
The BMW M635CSi was the brainchild of BMW’s Motorsport department and arrived to the market in 1984. Karmann manufactured the early 6-Series BMWs from launch in 1976 before BMW took production in-house. The engine was a development of the M1 supercar’s 3453cc, 24-valve, six-cylinder unit producing 286bhp, the increased power necessitating chassis improvements which included altered weight distribution, revised suspension, larger brakes and a limited-slip differential. There was also a close-ratio five-speed gearbox (or four-speed multi-mode auto) and a more luxurious interior, while outwardly this ultimate 6-Series model was readily distinguishable by virtue of its ‘M Technic’ body kit. Performance was impressive with the M635CSi being capable of reaching 0-62mph in around 6 seconds on its way to a top speed in excess of 155mph.
The car we have on offer today was built new by Geoff Steel Racing over the winter of 2015/16 with the aim to compete in the Peter Auto Heritage Touring Car series, from an original E24 shell purchased from Southern Italy as a full, road legal car in very good condition.
The vehicle was subject to a completely stripped to bare shell and dipped, a T45 FIA specification cage fitted and a full engine strip and rebuild. The gearbox was replaced with a rebuilt FIA Group A specification box, and a new FIA specification 100 litre capacity fuel cell was added. The car currently runs with 310bhp and weights 1200kgs and is said to have passed full HTP check first time and papers issued. With a number of high placed finishes in the European Group A season, including an impressive 2nd at Spa in 2016 and 2nd at the Algarve classic in 2017, the would certainly be a contender in the right hands.
1981 Ford Capri 3.0 Ghia Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WFOCXXGAECBJ09655
Estimate: £3,000 - £5,000 (No Reserve)
The Capri Mk3 was referred to internally as “Project Carla”, and although little more than a substantial update of the Mk2, it was often referred to as the Mk3. The first cars were available in March 1978, but failed to halt a terminal decline in sales. The concept of a heavily facelifted Capri 2 was shown at the 1976 Geneva show: a Capri 2 with a front very similar to the Escort RS2000 (with four headlamps and black slatted grille), and with a rear spoiler, essentially previewed the model some time before launch. The Mk3 featured improved aerodynamics, leading to improved performance and economy over the Mk2 and the trademark quad headlamps were introduced. At launch the existing engine and transmission combinations of the Capri 2 were carried over, with the 3.0 S model regarded as the most desirable model although in truth the softer, Ghia derivative with automatic rather than manual transmission the bigger seller of the two V6 engined models. Rolling off the production shortly before the 3 litre model was replaced by the smaller 2.8 litre V6, this 1981 Capri 3.0 Ghia shows only two previous registered keepers, and 78,000 miles recorded, supported by a large history file. Supplied with an MoT certificate valid to November 2018, and offered with No Reserve to the highest bidder, this is we feel an excellent basis for further restoration.
1983 Mercedes 500SL Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 10704622003420
Estimate: ÂŁ15,000 - ÂŁ20,000
The SLs of this era (the 107 chassis) really established themselves as icons of quality and success on the Continent as well as the Americas; unlike the previous SL range, these cars were rugged and durable and could accumulate high mileage and still remain reliable with just the most basic of care. The first of the generation was the 350 SL, a car that is now beginning to occupy a strong place in the hearts of Mercedes-Benz collectors; it was the original pure design with no emissions equipment to speak of, small plated bumpers and manual windows. Being lighter and unrestricted from an emissions standpoint meant the cars were lively performers as well as quiet and comfortable touring cars. Following the discontinuation of the SLC in September 1981, the 107 series continued initially as the 280, 380 and 500 SL. At this time, the V8 engines were re-tuned for greater efficiency. First registered in the summer of 1983, this wonderful UK delivered 500SL has been in the custodianship of only 3 owners from new. The current vendor, a Mercedes enthusiast and collector, has undertaken a program of light refurbishment to improve the overall look and feel of the SL, which has just recently been completed. Offered with a full service history, all relevant books and manuals, and finished in a stylish combination of champagne metallic gold with a cream interior, this is a nice example of what has become the most desirable and collectible version in recent years.
2005 Mercedes CLK DTM 1 of only 40 Right Hand Drive examples produced worldwide 2 owners and only 7,400 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WDB2093422F163648
Estimate: £190,000 - £230,000
“There are AMG Benzes, really quite special AMG Benzes, and pretty damn amazing, spectacular and rare AMG Benzes. And the last of these is what you are looking at here.” Richard Bremner, Autocar Magazine, 2005. The DTM was a special edition coupé built for the road out of the bones of the full racing-spec 209 CLK DTM that raced in the ultra-competitive German DTM racing series. Originally priced at the equivalent of around £161,000 when launched, it sold out as soon buyers could scrabble to their local Mercedes dealer to place an order, and is now one of the most collectible Mercedes models available today. The 582 bhp 5.4 litre supercharged V8 engine was limited to a top speed of 300 km/h. That’s right, limited to 300km/h. Front and rear track were widened by 74 and 110mm respectively and special tyres, produced specifically for the car,
allowed 1.35g of lateral acceleration. 0-100 km/h came in an amazing 3.8 secs. Very high profile customers only were ‘ invited’ to become owners, which included F1 drivers of the day such as Mika Hakkinen and Jenson Button. Modelled on the racing version used by DTM hero and AMG racer Bernd Schneider, the CLK DTM also featured many bodywork modifications derived from racing, such as the deeper front apron, larger intake ducts, flared wheel arches and a boot-mounted rear wing. Many of these body panels were built from carbon fibre, along with interior panels too. One of only 40 were ever destined to the UK, and this very low mileage example surely must rank as one of the best. Our CLK DTM has covered only 7,400 miles in the hands of two private owners, and is supplied with a fully documented Mercedes Service History record.
Supplied with the perfect number plate DT55 AMG, and with a new UK MoT certificate, this is by far one of the most exclusive and sought after limited-edition Mercedes-Benz models of recent years, and one we feel has an excellent future in the classic car market.
2002 Porsche 996 GT2 Registration Number: UK Registration
Chassis Number: WP0ZZZ99235095082
Estimate: £60,000 - £80,000
Based on the 993 generation of the 911 Turbo, the Porsche GT2 debuted in 1993. Intended as a customer GT racer, it replaced the 964 Carrera RSR. The first generation GT2 had plastic fenders wider than the 911 profile and a smaller rear wing with air scoops in the struts. At introduction it had a twin-turbo 3.6-liter engine putting out 430 bhp; in 1998 it was uprated to 450 bhp. The name was taken from the GT2 class in which it was designed to compete. Just 57 road-going cars were built. GT2s competed in the BPR Global GT Series, achieving seven class wins in the first season, as well as a class victory in the 1996 24 Heures du Mans. The Le Mans win was repeated in 1997. The cars also won three races in the FIA GT Championship. In 1999, the second generation GT2 arrived, based on the 996, which had succeeded the 993. Porsche had decided to concentrate on a new normally-aspirated GT3 for competition, but used the GT3’s 3.6-liter engine, in turbocharged form, in the new GT2. Power was up to 462 bhp, 483 after displacement was increased to 3.8 litres in 2000. The transmission was a six-speed manual. Similar wide fenders were used, along with a more aggressive nose. The rear wing also grew in size.Power was not the only objective. Weight was reduced by 200 pounds from the basic 911 Turbo, and handling was improved with stiffer springs and other suspension modifications. The body modifications improved the car’s aerodynamics. The second-generation GT2s were campaigned by privateers with success in some of the national series like Belcar in Belgium. 996-generation GT2s were expensive cars, and production quantities were tiny. This fine example presented in its original colour scheme is presented well, the alloy wheels show little sign of wear as does the interior which is also very clean. These GT2s are fantastically rare and collectible cars, and offer rock-solid investment potential for the future. Offered with a UK V5 and UK MoT certificate, this rare model is no exception.
1987 Mercedes 560SL Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £15,000 - £20,000
When Mercedes redesigned its famed SL in 1971, there was a lot of equity behind it – after all, when the incomparable 300SL Coupe and Roadster were built fewer than 20 years before, they set the world on fire. The next-generation 230/250/280SL in 1963 brought Mercedes’ sports car down to Earth, replacing both the incredible 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL. For the next SL, Mercedes started with the chassis of the mid-size “W114/115” model and added the motors from the large “W116” S-Class. The result was a luxurious V8 Convertible that ended up being the longest passenger car series ever produced by Mercedes to date. Despite its age, the final iteration, the 560SL, remained a prized automotive status symbol and an iconic part of the brand’s lineup, until it was finally replaced by the all-new fourth-generation SL in 1990. This lovely top of the range 560SL model is finished in the highly attractive combination of Ivory with a Cognac leather interior. The SL is offered with full service history from first delivery, all relevant books and manuals, two sets of keys, and is presented in truly wonderful condition in all respects. An extremely stylish modern classic car which can be used and enjoyed throughout the whole year.
1995 Porsche 993 Private collection, 25,300 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ99Z55313203
Estimate: £50,000 - £60,000
Since its introduction it has undergone continuous development, though the basic concept has remained little changed. The engines were air-cooled until the introduction of the Type 996 in 1998. The 993 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998, replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches. Like previous and future generations of the Porsche 911, there were several variants of the car manufactured, varying in body style, engines, drivetrains and included equipment. The external design of the Porsche 993, penned by Englishman Toni Hatter, retained the basic bodyshell architecture of the 964 and other earlier 911 models, but with revised external panels, with much more flared wheelarches and a smoother front and rear bumper design, an enlarged retractable rear wing, teardrop mirrors, but keeping the doors and roof panels. Delivered new on the 1st March 1995 this lovely right hand drive example is offered with the attractive colour combination of avantime green over black leather interior and is in fantastic all-round condition. Supplied with a comprehensive history file with many bills and receipts as well as the original service and workshop booklets. The car has been kept in a private collection and has been maintained by marque specialists throughout its life. The body work, paint and interior are all in excellent order as is the powerful 3.6 litre flat six which is also in good working condition. Showing a mere 25,300 miles on the odometer and being a one owner example, this must be one of the best 993’s on the market today. An iconic example of this exceptional marque.
1969 Ford Escort MK1 - Race/Rally Prepared Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £8,000 - £10,000 (No Reserve)
The Ford Escort Mk I was introduced in 1967 and was a commercial success in many parts of Western Europe. However, in the UK it was the best-selling car during the 1960s. In June 1974, less than six years after the car’s UK introduction, Ford announced the completion of the two millionth Ford Escort, a milestone unmatched by any Ford model outside the USA. The Escort used a brand new unitary construction body shell and came with a choice of 1098cc or 1298cc four cylinder, overhead valve engines. It also featured contemporary styling cues in tune with its time: a subtle Detroit-inspired “Coke bottle” waistline and the “dogbone” shaped front grille arguably the car’s most famous stylistic feature. The Escorts became very successful as a rally car and they eventually went on to become one of the most successful rally cars of all time. The Ford works team was practically unbeatable in the late 1960s / early 1970s and, arguably, the Escort’s greatest victory was in the 1970 London to Mexico World Cup Rally being driven by Finnish legend Hannu Mikkola. This Escort has been repatriated from South Africa, where it was prepared for motorsport use. The Escort is supplied with the relevant NOVA as proof of customs clearance, in addition to South African shipping papers. A great, cost effective way to get into Historic Motorsport.
1996 Porsche 993 Turbo X50 22,500 miles from new. C16 car. Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: TBC
Estimate: £140,000- £160,000
Intended for drivers who demanded top performance, the 993 Turbo was first launched to the world in September 1985, where in Germany it was voted Sports Car of the Year by “Auto Motor and Sport” magazine. A huge sensation when it was launched, the 993 series Turbo was based on the Carrera 4. In fact, its unbelievable technical capabilities, and exceptionally good road-holding, led to it being compared in the magazine reports to the incredible 959. Three developments contributed to its tremendous performance. The engine had low inertia turbos, the transmission had six close-ratio speeds, and of course it came with four-wheel drive. At least 5% of the engine’s power is permanently applied to the front axle. The ratio will increase to 40% under extreme driving conditions. The 911 Turbo was conceived and built by motorsport enthusiasts. The addition of the X50 power pack with its adapted ECU meant that the maximum output rose to 430hp (331kw), and gained an additional oil cooler and a twin- chrome pipe exhaust from the 993 Turbo S model. The X50 power upgrade measurably improves the 993 Turbo, and the car is far better at being civilised and coping with everyday driving conditions than its competitors. This wonderful 993 turbo has covered just 22,500 miles from new. Immaculately presented with an impeccable service history which supports it mileage it benefits from the X50 upgrade. Having recently been serviced and forming part of a significant collection in the south of England this is arguably the lowest mileage C16 car on the market today. Truly for the Porsche connoisseur, the last aircooled 911 and arguably its best incarnation.
1995 Rolls-Royce Corniche Covertible Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £90,000 - £110,000
Rolls-Royce’s Corniche Convertible was introduced in 1970 as a convertible version of the popular Silver Shadow, and remained in production for an impressive 25 years. Each was built to a clients customer order at Rolls-Royce’s H.J. Mulliner Park Ward coachworks in London, and would take a substantial amount of time to handcraft to stately standards. With only the finest leather used within, the cars were an imposing rolling status symbol. Not just long lived, the Corniche Convertible was as desirable at the end of it’s 25 year run as it was in the beginning, a testament to its owners taste and success. This late 1995 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible, finished in white, with cream interior, boasts a exceedingly low 38,000 miles from new and being from the last year of production for these iconic and well established cars, it is one of the most desirable models to add to any Rolls-Royce collection.
1999 Bentley Continental SC Coupé One of 72 examples built Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: SCBZZ22E1XCX
Estimate: £70,000- £90,000
Bentley’s 1980s resurgence had hitherto relied exclusively on models whose basic architecture was shared with other Rolls-Royce products, but on display at Geneva in ‘85 was ‘Project 90’, a mocked-up coupé intended to gauge public response to the idea of a high-performance car unique to Bentley. When the real thing - the Bentley Continental R - was unveiled six years later, the waiting crowd burst into spontaneous applause. Styled with the assistance of consultants International Automotive Design, the Continental R benefited from computer-aided design and wind tunnel testing in the devising of its sleekly streamlined shape. Despite the need to incorporate non-traditional features such as doors recessed into the roof, the result looked every bit a Bentley, albeit one restated for the 1990s. Also new was the gearbox, a four-speed automatic with an ‘overdrive’ top ratio, but the main focus of interest was the newcomer’s performance. Needless to say, this was outstanding, the combination of the Turbo R engine in the new wind-cheating shape cutting the 0-60mph time to under 6 seconds and boosting top speed to in excess of 150mph. One of the more exclusive limited-edition variants of this already exclusive model was the Continental SC, its name referencing the exotic Sedanca Coupé bodied Bentleys of the 1930s. Launched at the 1998 Paris Show, the Continental SC featured a Targa-style removable roof, the glass panels being stored in the boot. ‘The SC may be massive, but it obviously isn’t so massive that 400-odd horses can’t give it genuinely impressive punch. The eerie part though, is the absolute silence.’ Clearly, the SC’s designers had not lost sight of Bentley’s reputation as ‘The Silent Sports Car’.
Delivered new to the USA, this wonderful left-hand drive Continental SC has covered only 48,000 miles and comes with its books and history. Described as in generally good condition, with nothing negative to report, this rarest of modern Bentleys is offered with the aforementioned service history, and V5C registration document. Rarely are these cars offered on the open market.
1967 Aston Martin DB6 Volante Previous long term ownership for 43 years Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: DBVC/3629/R
Estimate: £500,000 - £600,000
Considered by many to be the last ‘real’ Aston Martin, the DB6 was launched in 1965, updating the DB5. Although Royal patronage of the marque undoubtedly helped DB6 sales, the car arrived at a difficult time for Aston Martin, with the home economy in a parlous state and the US market subject to ever-more restrictive legislation. Though recognisably related to its Touring-styled DB4 ancestor, the DB6 abandoned the underlying Superleggera body structure of its predecessors in favour of a conventional steel fabrication while retaining the aluminium outer panels. Somewhat confusingly, ‘Superleggera’ badges continued to be applied for a time, presumably until stocks ran out. The wheelbase was now 4” (100mm) longer than before, resulting in an extensive restyle with more-raked windscreen, raised roofline and reshaped rear quarter windows.
Opening front quarter lights made a reappearance but the major change was at the rear where a Kamm-style tail with spoiler improved the aerodynamics, greatly enhancing stability at high speeds. ‘The tail lip halves the aerodynamic lift around maximum speed and brings in its train greater headroom and more luggage space,’ declared Motor magazine, concluding that the DB6 was one of the finest sports cars it had ever tested. The Tadek Marek-designed six-cylinder engine had been enlarged to 3,995cc for the preceding DB5 and remained unchanged. Power output on triple SU carburettors was 282bhp, rising to 325bhp in Vantage specification. Borg-Warner automatic transmission was offered alongside the standard ZF five-speed gearbox, and for the first time there was optional power-assisted steering.
Premiered at the 1965 London Motor Show, the convertible DB6 marked the first occasion the evocative â€˜Volanteâ€™ name had been applied to a soft-top Aston Martin. After 37 Volante convertibles had been completed on the DB5 short-wheelbase chassis, the model adopted the longer DB6 chassis in October 1966, first appearing in its definitive form at the London Motor Show. The stylish Volante offered four-seat accommodation and was generously appointed with leather upholstery, deep-pile carpets, an aircraft-style instrument cluster and an electrically operated hood.
In the summer of 1969 the Mark 2 DB6 was announced in saloon and convertible versions. Distinguishable by its flared wheel arches and DBS wheels, the DB6 Mark 2 came with power-assisted steering as standard and could be ordered with AE Brico electronic fuel injection. Between 1965 and 1970 when production ceased a total of 1,575 DB6 saloons was completed. During this time the factory made only 178 of the long-wheelbase Volantes and today these rare cars are among the most sought after of the David Brown-era Aston Martins. One of only 140 Volante-specification examples of the DB6, this wonderful motor car was supplied new by official Aston Martin dealer HW Motors Limited of Walton on Thames. Acquiring the car in 1973 a Mr Streeter of London was the second custodian for 43 years until the current vendor acquired the car more recently in 2016. The current owner, a prolific collector and enthusiast with a comprehensive collection, has decided after a couple of years of enjoyable ownership to hand his DB6 over to a new custodian. Originally ordered in Pacific Blue with a natural beige leather interior and tan hood, the DB6 has been meticulously maintained with bills and invoices of work from 1975. This wonderful matching numbers Aston is offered with the original factory jack and factory toolkit. Also accompanying the DB6 is a comprehensive history file containing a copy of the original build sheet, current and older MoT certificates, original workshop and instruction manuals and copies of invoices for previous works completed (from the likes of specialists such as Ian Mason, and Aston Martin amongst others). Offered with its original registration number, the example on offer is ready to be driven and enjoyed, this elegant softtop Aston Martin is surely the perfect way to enjoy the wonderful summer months.

Derived from the 308 GT4 of 1973, which was the only production Ferrari not to have been penned by Pininfarina but by Bertone, the Mondial 8 was essentially a made-over 308 GT4, but with Pininfariana-styled body and a longer wheelbase. It was the Maranello firm’s first attempt at producing a ‘world car’ model and to meet the increasingly stringent emission requirements of so many export markets, the famous 3-litre V8 engine had to be fuel-injected. A cleaner engine resulted in a loss of power and torque however. Even though the Mondial was not quite as powerful as the 308 GT4, it was much more practical. With true room for four people. The slightly longer wheelbase did not negatively affect handling, but did lead to phenomenal high speed stability. A well sorted Mondial is truly a great GT car. This right hand drive model on offer here today has been with the current vendor for several years during which time the car has been maintained to a high standard and always garaged. Work carried out during his tenure includes new flexi hoses for the brakes, new brake pads, new clutch slave cylinder, new antiroll bar bushes and replacement oil cooler. A new aluminium coolant expansion tank has also been fitted. The car currently sits on 348 wheels and the original wheels will be included in the sale. The car is described to be in a good condition all round and a pleasure to drive. A large history file accompanies the car, along with a current MoT and UK V5C registration.
1976 Ferrari Dino 208 GT4 - Ex Alex Wurz Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 12304
Estimate: £40,000 - £45,000
The Ferrari Dino 208 GT4 is the smaller brother of the Ferrari 308 and was revealed at the 1973 Paris Auto Salon. The model was conceived and designed for the Italian market, where cars with a larger than two-litre displacement engine were subject to a value-added tax of 38%. In order to circumvent this restrictive taxation, the engine was downsized to 1,991 cubic centimetres, making it the smallest production V8 ever used in a Ferrari road car. As this was a model specific to the Italian market, all were produced in a left-hand-drive configuration. The Dino 208 GT4 remained in production from 1975 to 1980, and with just 840 units receiving Maranello’s stamp of approval, it remains a rarely seen Ferrari. The 208 GT4’s 90-degree V8 engine contained belt-driven twin-overhead camshafts per bank, transversely mounted, with the all-synchromesh, five-speed transmission assembly below, and to the rear of, the engine’s wet sump. It was fitted with a bank of four twin-choke Weber carburettors, producing a very capable 180 horsepower. The exterior design of the 208 GT4 is similar to its 308 big brother, with the obvious external differences between the two models being the 208 GT4’s single exhaust pipe and the plain aluminium finish for the louvres on the front lid and engine cover, as opposed to satin black on the 308 GT4. With a pronounced wedge-shaped body, penned by Bertone, a look that was very much in keeping with the sharp-suited style of the period, there are a number of important design details, such as the boomerang-shaped air intakes on the sail panels, which border the rear quarter glass. The left side intake ducted cooling air to the oil radiator and the right side sent air to the carburettors, essential to making the most of the small-capacity V8 engine. The overall design is compact and well balanced, withstanding the test of time and shifting fashions. This highly original 208 GT4 was first delivered to Mr Gian Carlo Raccagni in Brescia in May 1976 and remained in his ownership for the following 39 years. In March of 2015 the car passed to Dima Automobili before being purchased by ex F1 driver, Alex Wurz, in May of the same year and registered in Monte Carlo. The car then passed to the current vendor who imported it to the UK on a NOVA but has decided to let the new owner be the first registered UK owner. We are advised that the car is in a very original and overall good condition. The car benefitted from a cambelt change in July 2016 and has only covered 100km since and is described to drive superbly. This 208 GT4 provides a wonderful opportunity to own an unmolested car with an excellent history, as well as the chance to be the first UK registered owner.
1978 Ferrari 308 GTS 7,649 miles from new. Right hand drive model Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 25171
Estimate: £30,000 - £40,000
Enzo Ferrari’s son, Alfredino “Dino” Ferrari, had a promising career as an engineer and businessman and was poised to take over his father’s motoring empire, continuing the Ferrari legacy through the next generation. Dino gained experience working alongside some of the greatest engineers in history, such as Vittorio Jano. He is credited with the concept of the big-bore 4-cylinder 750 Monza and convincing his father of the merits of a compact V6. Sadly, he became ill and passed away at the age of twenty-four but his legacy lived on in the form of the Dino 246GT and the unbroken line of mid-engined V8 cars that continue today. Dino’s 2.4 litre twin-overhead cam V6 was a jewel of an engine. It was fitted to the first mid-engine regular production Ferrari and became the lifeblood of the brand for the next 45 years. The successor to the Dino, the mighty 308, gained two cylinders and earned a Ferrari badge. The 308 GTB/GTS became the company’s most successful model to date, selling more than 12,000 examples over a 10 year production span. As the volume leader for so many years, the 308 was often toward the bottom of the collectability scale and many suffered from poor maintenance. Properly maintained 308’s are now highly sought-after and the model is enjoying a well-deserved and dramatic rise in collectability. This beautiful 1978 308 GTS is a desirable Carburettor model, which are becoming increasingly difficult to find in good condition. Sold new on September 20th 1978 by Maranello Sales, Egham to a Mr Cox of Surrey who would later part ways with the 308 in 1980. The mileage when sold was just 6,070 which is documented on the sale agreement letter to the then second owner Mr Brook who had the Ferrari for just a single year before passing it on to Mr Banks in 1981. Used sparingly at this time the 308 saw just 1,579 miles before being laid up. Recently recommissioned with a full service and cambelt replacement in 2017 the car is presented in good working order. The underside is clean and the body shows little sign of its age. Still in highly original condition this stunning example boasts a wonderful patina, the original Rosso Corsa paintwork shows off the lines of the 308 perfectly and the original interior, leather seats and matching black carpets have aged very well. Offered with a comprehensive history file containing many invoices, including a recent major service and timing belts change. Additionally, we note that the Ferrari is supplied with an order specification document from marque specialist Tony Willis and several documents to back up its mileage. With only 7,649 miles recorded, this is a great opportunity to acquire a rare model with wonderful provenance, which we are positive will prove to be a wise investment in years to come.
Ferrari F355 Spider Manual gearbox 24,000 miles from new Registration Number:
‘Complex, sophisticated, and very fast, it is the quantum leap that has enabled the Ferrari V8 to run in proud parallel with the 456GT and 550 Maranello,’ enthused Car magazine’s review of the F355. First presented to the motoring press in May 1994, the F355 effectively re-forged the reputation of Ferrari’s V8 which, 328 and 348 notwithstanding, had suffered since the introduction of the Mondial ‘world car’. The latter, with its four seats, well-appointed interior, and – relatively – soft ride, was considered far too sensible to be a ‘proper’ Ferrari; the F355 however, was cast in the mould of that great drivers’ car, the Dino 246GT. Just how great an advance it was may be gauged from the fact that the F355’s best time around Ferrari’s Fiorano test track was three seconds quicker than the formidable 512TR’s. Despite its prodigious performance the F355 was no mere ‘racer on the road’, but a thoroughly modern automobile employing state-of-the-art technology, in the form of computer-controlled variable damping, to reconcile the differing requirements of ultimate roadholding and acceptable comfort. A light-action clutch, proportional power-assisted steering, and driver’s air bag were other features calculated to make the car reassuringly user-friendly. The heart of the F355 though, was its phenomenal 3.5-litre V8 engine. Equipped with four overhead camshafts and five valves per cylinder – a layout borrowed from Ferrari’s Formula 1 engine – this remarkable unit produced a claimed 370bhp at 8,250rpm, with 268lb/ft of torque available from 5,000 to 6,500rpm. A six-speed gearbox, mounted transversely behind the longitudinally disposed engine, ensured a sufficiency of ratios to keep the motor on the boil whatever the situation.
This left-hand drive F355 Spyder is finished in Rosso Corsa with Nero leather, carpets, hood and interior has a mere 23,000 miles recorded. Sounding suitably throaty this classic 355 offered in arguably the best colour combination, with its desirable manual gearbox makes this car an instant classic that represents very fair value.
Ferrari 365 GT4/BB Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 18267
Estimate: £290,000 - £310,000
Ferrari’s first mid-engined 12-cylinder production road car, the 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer, was seen as early as 1971 in prototype form but did not go on sale until 1973. Designed to compete against the contemporary Lamborghini Miura and the newly-designed Countach, the 365 GT4 BB represented a major departure for Enzo Ferrari, replacing the front-engined Daytona. Ferrari had previously been of the opinion that such a powerful mid-engined road car would be too much for his customers, but eventually realized otherwise after the success of the mid-engined Dino racing cars, and of course the V6 mid-engined Dino road cars.
Most notably, the 365BB/512BB series was Ferrari’s first with a 180-degree flat 12-cylinder engine in a production car. From a design standpoint, the car is unmistakably related to its contemporaries like the 365 GTB/4 Daytona and 365 GTC/4, with its round taillights on its vertical rear and its sloping, dramatic lines. However, it also draws from the 1968 Ferrari P6 Berlinetta Speciale concept car with its mid-engine proportions, razor-sharp front end and visible lights. The 365 GT4/BB was clearly a Ferrari while also being something new entirely. Just 387 examples (of which just 58 were UK right hand drive cars) were produced before production ceased in May of 1976. With those few hundred cars, Ferrari ended its incredible front-engine era and opened a promising new chapter of mid-engine excellence in one fell swoop. The wonderful example on offer was ordered new in March 1975 by Ferrari royalty Colonel Ronnie Hoare; the chairman of Maranello Concessionaires UK. The original order form confirms that the blue met Dino paintwork with beige upholstery interior was the original specification. Also supplied new was five wheels and tyres, a tool kit, AC and Radio autovex
melody. An order form document from marque specialist Tony Willis confirms the above. The BB is accompanied by a comprehensive history file which consists of all major work carried out from 1982, including invoices for restoration work and maintenance work from specialist Nick Cartwright as well as many pictures detailing every stage of the restoration process including the bare metal respray that was recently undertaken. Also included is an original Ferrari tool kit and the original 365GT4/BB alloy wheels (the car currently sits on later 512BB alloys). Not only does this BB have great provenance but it also has bundles of character, the few custodians fortunate enough to own this car will know that it drives fantastically, the engine pulls well and the gearbox is smooth. A fantastic handling car with plenty of punch from the flat 12 motor. We are sure this early right-hand drive BB must be one of the best on the market today.
1994 Ferrari 348 Spider UK delivered from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £40,000 - £45,000
Introduced in 1989 as a replacement for the very successful 328 series, the 348 production line ran until 1995, when the 355 took its place. Late in 1993 the 348 saw subtle revisions in the bodywork and a new engine management system giving a power increase from 300bhp to 320bhp from its 3.4-litre V8. At the same time, the suspension was revised and rear axle widened, vastly improving both the handling and ride quality. In a 2015 retrospective, EVO Magazine compared the 458 Italia against its 308, 348, F355, 360 and F430 ancestors, where Henry Catchpole noted the primary highlight of the day being the 348’s steering, describing it as, “instantly obvious this car has some of the best steering, possibly the best, that I have ever sat behind.” He expounded on the car’s analogue character, describing the steering as, “coming alive in my hands. It literally starts wriggling around, talking excitedly about all the bumps in the road and sometimes making a bigger gesture as a camber attracts its attention. Despite the lack of assistance and the wheel’s relatively small diameter, it’s not heavy in any way, there’s just perfect weight and no slack to add to the constant communication.” This rare right hand drive, UK delivered 348 Spider is nicely presented in Nero Black with contrasting Crema Leather interior. Showing a mere 40,000 miles recorded from new, supported by the relevant service records, the 348 has been in the ownership of just one enthusiast for the last 11 years, and kept in a temperature controlled garage. A very original example of this modern classic, which is ready to be enjoyed by its next lucky owner.
1985 Ferrari 208 GTS Turbo Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFKAT1B000053149
Estimate: £40,000 - £50,000
In 1980 Ferrari introduced a two-litre version of the 308, the 208 GTB and 208 GTS. Produced mainly for the domestic Italian market, where new cars with engines above 2-litres were subjected to a much higher value added tax. The engine was de-bored to 68.8 mm (giving it an undersquare design) for a total displacement of 1,990.64 cc, resulting in one of the smallest V8 engines ever produced. Fed through four Weber 34 DCNF carburettors, the V8 produced 153 bhp at 6800 rpm. In 1982 the two-litre 208 was succeeded by a turbocharged and fuel injected version, the 208 GTS turbo unveiled at the Turin Motor Show. It was the first ever turbocharged road-going Ferrari. The 208’s engine was given a single KKK turbocharger with wastegate valve, Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and Marelli electronic ignition. Forced induction increased power to 217 bhp at 7000 rpm. A GTS version was introduced a year later, in 1983. Both outside and inside the 208 Turbo was almost identical to the contemporary 308 Quattrovalvole. It could be recognized by NACA ducts in front of the rear wheel well openings and “turbo” badging on the tail and shrouded exhaust pipes; the normally optional deep front spoiler and black roof aileron were standard. Production ended in 1985 after 437 GTB turbo and 250 GTS turbo cars were produced. In 1986 they were replaced by the 328-based, intercooled GTB/GTS Turbo. The 208 turbo offered here was built in 1985 and first registered in 1987 when it was imported to Malta by the first owner. Finished in Rosso Corsa over Nero leather, the car was used regularly by the first owner around the small island. It was then bought by its second owner who was the President of the Ferrari Owners Club in Malta, who set about a comprehensive restoration. The current vendor is the third owner and has been in possession of the car for the last 17 years. During his ownership the car has been fastidiously maintained and serviced every year at the Cronos Ferrari specialist in Sicily. The vendor describes the car to be in pristine condition, completely rust free and an absolute joy to drive. This particular car was also featured in the Hollywood film, ‘The Devil’s Double’, where the car was driven sporting early 1990’s Iraqi plates by Dominic Cooper. We are told the car performed her duties admirably during a gruelling day of filming, without missing a beat. The vehicle comes with her Maltese registration and a valid VRT until July 2018.
Lot 000 137
2012 Ferrari FF Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £120,000 - £130,000
Launched in 2011 as a replacement for the Ferrari 612, the shooting brake-styled four-seater offered buyers a first: a full-size Grand Tourer with a 651bhp V12 engine and, somewhat contentiously, four-wheel drive. Maranello had previously dabbled with four driven wheels in the 1987 408 Integrale concept, but the V12-engined FF is the first Ferrari to make series production with such a system. Most initial assessment of the FF when it was launched was at least partially concerned with the question of identity; can this generously proportioned four-wheel-drive estate car really be considered worthy of the emblem plastered on its flanks? The FF shares the design language of contemporary Ferraris, including the pulled-back headlights of the 458 Italia, and the twin circular taillights seen on the 458 as well as the 599 GTB Fiorano. Designed under the direction of Lowie Vermeersch, former Design Director at Pininfarina, and Flavio Manzoni, Ferrari’s Styling Centre, work on the shooting brake concept initially started following the creation of the Sintesi show car of 2007. Distinctive styling elements include a large egg-crate grille, defined side skirts, and four exhaust tips. The shooting brake configuration is a departure from the conventional wedge shape of modern Ferraris, and the FF has been likened to the similarly-shaped 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Drogo race car.
This fantastic UK-delivered from new example, finished in Nero Black with a Cognac leather interior, is showing a mere c.36,000 miles from new with just one registered owner. This beautiful and highly capable V12-engined Ferrari GT is, we feel a true modern classic, and a watershed moment in the rich history of Ferrari. Without doubt a model, collectors will be watching closely in the future.
1993 Ferrari F40 Michelotto LM Specification Registration Number: TBC
Chassis Number: ZFFGJ34B000080782
Estimate: £800,000 - £1,000,000
The Ferrari F40 is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door coupé sports car built from 1987 to 1992. The successor to the Ferrari 288 GTO, it was designed to celebrate Ferrari’s fortieth anniversary and was the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by Enzo Ferrari. At the time it was the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car that Ferrari sold to the public. Power came from an enlarged, 2.9 litre version of the GTO’s twin IHI turbocharged V8 developing 478bhp. The F40 did without a catalytic converter until 1990 when US regulations made them a requirement for emissions control reasons. The flanking exhaust pipes guide exhaust gases from each bank of cylinders while the central pipe guides gases released from the wastegate of the turbochargers.
Delivered new to Ferrari importer Kroymans BV in Holland on June 28th 1993 and prepared for racing by a Kroymans’ associated company, Cavallino Racing and subsequently sold to Mr H W te Pas of Dutch Racing Promotions at Blaricum, Holland. The car was totally restored for racing in 1995 with additional installations including a roll hoop and race suspension by G-Tex (Will Gollop) in England as well as race shock absorbers by Intrax. Also installed is a complete Stack instrumentation system and air jack.
The car was sold in 1998 to Ferrari collector and Privateer racer Michel Oprey. A replacement for his Ferrari 348 GT, both of which he campaigned in the Ferrari Porsche challenge in the 1990â€™s, the F40 being more powerful and subsequently more competitive. The Ferrari was then sold and raced by Patrick Huisman, David Hart, Mike Hezemans and Hans te Pas on various circuits throughout Europe.
Once again, the F40 participated in the Ferrari Porsche challenge throughout the 2000 season which included races at Monza, Spa, Brands Hatch, Zolder and the Nürburgring. In the late 2000’s the car was laid up at a marque specialists storage facility before being purchased by the current vendor and restored back to its former condition.
This wonderful matching numbers example was subject to much restoration work in recent years, invoices from marque specialists confirm over £80,000 was spent on work carried out including an engine, gearbox and clutch overhaul. In good running condition and with an excellent provenance the F40 on offer is ready to be campaigned with a new owner. Included in the sale are four sets of racing wheel rims, additional exhaust system and a complete front bonnet (without lights).
1986 Ferrari Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet Registration Number: EU taxes paid
Chassis Number: ZFFXC26AxG0060445
Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000
The Ferrari Mondial cabriolet was produced by Ferrari from 1980 through to 1993. The Mondial saw Ferrari return to Pininfarina for styling and it was sold as a mid-sized coupe and, eventually, a cabriolet. It was conceived as a ‘usable’ model, offering the practicality of four seats with the performance of a Ferrari. Like the new 328 GTB, the Mondial’s engine grew in both bore and stroke to 3.2 L for 1985. Output was now 280 hp. Available in both Coupe and Cabriolet forms, styling was refreshed with restyled and body-coloured bumpers, similar to the 328 with more integrated indicators & driving lamps, and new wheels with a more rounded face. The 3.2 also boasted a major interior update, with a more ergonomic layout and a more rounded instrument binnacle,from 1987 onwards cars sported ABS . Fuel injection remained the primarily mechanical Bosch K-Jetronic (CIS) with an o2 sensor in the exhaust providing feedback to a simple computer for mixture trimming via a pulse modulated frequency valve that regulated control fuel pressure. Ignition system was Marelli Microplex, with electronic advance control and one distributor per bank of the V8. The 1988 Mondial 3.2 would be the final model year that retained the relatively low maintenance costs of the 308/328 drivetrain, allowing major service items like timing belt and clutch replacement to be performed with the engine/transmission package still in the car. This wonderfully original 3.2 litre cabriolet on offer is presented in the desirable colour combination of Ferrari Rosso Corsa Red over magnolia yellow interior. The Mondial presents very nicely the paint and body work are in good order as is the interior which shows little sign of its age. Included in the history file is an eleven-page specialist appraisal dated to May 2017 documenting the cars condition. Presented in good all-round condition and showing a modest 78,800 miles on the odometer the Mondial looks great and drives equally as well. An appreciating classic which is ready to be used.
1991 Ferrari 348 TS Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFKA36B000090857
Estimate: £40,000 - £50,000
First seen in prototype form in 1987, the Ferrari 348 entered production in 1989, replacing the immensely successful 328GTB/GTS. Mid-engined like its predecessor, the 348 differed by mounting its four-valves-per-cylinder, quad-cam V8 engine – now enlarged to 3.4 litres – longitudinally, enabling it to be positioned lower in the chassis. Another new departure was the transversely mounted fivespeed gearbox – a spin-off from Ferrari’s contemporary Formula 1 technology – which enabled weight to be concentrated within the wheelbase, thereby further improving the already brilliant roadholding. Initially typed ‘TS’ and ‘TB’ – trasversale berlinetta and trasversale spider – the 348 reverted to Ferrari’s traditional GTB/GTS nomenclature part way through production. With its aerodynamic skirts, spoilers, minimal overhangs and distinctive gill slats feeding air to side-mounted radiators, the stocky 348 looked very much like a scaled-down Testarossa and, with around 300bhp on tap and a top speed of 170mph, gave little away in terms of outright performance to its larger, 12-cylinder sibling. Production ceased in 1994 after 8,745 348’s of all types had been built.
This wonderful example was first registered in France before being imported to the UK in 1998 and has been owned by the current vendor since 2002. Showing a mere 41,300 miles on the odometer from new, the car is said to be in a very good condition throughout. Finished in brilliant Giallofly paintwork and Nero leather interior, the car has been kept in a garage during its current ownership and benefits from a recent service in July of this year. Included is a history file along with warranty book, ownerâ€™s manual, V5C registration and a current MOT. Here is a chance to acquire a superb V8 Ferrari spider that has been excellently maintained and benefits from a limited mileage.
1983 Ferrari 512BBi Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZFF5A09B000044995
Estimate: £250,000 - £300,000
Having reasserted itself at the top of the supercar hierarchy with the first ‘Boxer’ – the 365GTB/4 BB – Ferrari went one better with its successor, the 512BB. For the new Boxer, Ferrari abandoned its long-standing practice of denoting a model by the capacity of an individual cylinder and adopted the Dino-type nomenclature where ‘512’ indicates 5 litres/12 cylinders. Displacement was increased by enlarging both bore and stroke, while in addition the compression ratio was raised and dry-sump lubrication adopted. The result of all these changes was a useful increase in torque which, coupled with revised gear ratios, made the 512 more tractable. Changes to Pininfarina’s inspired coachwork were, not surprisingly, few. The running gear likewise came in for only minor revision while the already excellent all-round ventilated disc brakes remained unchanged. Inside, the 512 remained virtually the same as before but for the welcome adoption of multi-way adjustable seats in place of the fixed originals.
Road & Track magazine had achieved a speed of 175mph (280km/h) in the preceding 365GT/4 BB, and although lack of road space prevented the discovery of their test 512’s capability, Ferrari’s claimed maximum of 188mph (302km/h) was felt entirely realistic. In 1981 the model was updated with Bosch fuel injection, becoming the 512BBi. Once again, maximum power remained unchanged but there was more available at lower revs and torque increased still further. Possessing an engine directly related to Ferrari’s contemporary Formula 1 unit, as well as being both lighter and faster than the legendary Daytona, the 512BBi was one of the most capable and exciting supercars of its era and is still capable of providing all the thrills that an enthusiastic owner-driver could wish for. This left-hand drive example is one of only 1,007 512BBi models produced by Ferrari. Finished in Rosso Corsa red with dark blue interior trim and showing very little wear, the car is displayed in lovely condition all round.
Showing a total of 56,000 kilometres on the odometer the car was previously sold by Charles Pozzi automobiles of France in 1983 the car has seen just three owners from new and has been serviced less than 2,000 kilometres ago. Included in the sale are bills of service and maintenance work as well as a Ferrari booklet with important documents included. With the value of V12 Ferraris from the 1960â€™s and 1970â€™s having increased dramatically, users and investors alike have recognised the potential of the Berlinetta Boxer series, and particularly that of the more practical fuel-injected models such as this one.
1981 Ferrari Mondial 8 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFHD08B000036719
Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000
Ferrari’s first effort at building a car suitable for markets throughout the world, the Mondial 8 deployed the 308GT4’s 3.0-litre quad-cam V8 engine in a lengthened version of the latter’s chassis. Transmission and running gear remained much the same, with five-speed transaxle and independent suspension all round. Although reckoned by some to be less sporting than other Ferraris, the Mondial was still good for 225km/h-plus and its ride quality and comfort scored over long distances. The Mondial was also one of the first Ferraris to benefit from zinc anticorrosion coating of its steel panels. Considerably roomier than previous Ferrari 2+2s, the Pininfarina-styled Mondial has been described by Car magazine as, ‘the closest you’ll get to supercar family transport.’ Developments included a proper (non-Targa) Cabriolet, the introduction of a more-powerful ‘QV’ (Quattro-valvole: four-valves-per-cylinder) engine in 1982 and enlargement to 3.2 litres for 1985. The example on offer today is presented in the desirable and rare colour combination of Grey over red leather interior. Showing circa 74,000 Kilometres it is presented in good all-round condition. The body and paintwork are in good condition with little sign of wear. A comprehensive history file accompanies the car with a documented service book along with invoices of work that has been carried out. Offered with a current UK registration document and mot test certificate this fantastic example on offer today is ready to be used.
2002 Ferrari 360 Spider Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £55,000 - £65,000
Rare Right Hand Drive with only 14,800 miles from new - Serviced at Joe Macari less than 1000 miles ago Ferrari’s most successful model since the 308, the F355 was always going to be a tough act to follow. Its successor needed to be ground breaking and revolutionary; two words which, without doubt the 360 lived up to. Starting with a clean sheet of paper in designing the 360 Modena, the new car attracted superlatives that put even its illustrious predecessor in the shade. Just about the only item carried over from the F355 was its glorious V8 engine, enlarged from 3.5 to 3.6 litres for the 360, producing 400bhp. In every other respect the 360 was entirely new, the most striking break with Ferrari tradition being the body’s frontal treatment; gone was the omnipresent oval grille, replaced by two separate intakes set low into the front wings. A larger car than the F355, the 360 owed its radical new shape to the quest for increased downforce, generating four times as much as its predecessor yet achieving the impressively low Cd of 0.33. There was further innovation beneath the skin: a lighter, stiffer aluminium spaceframe/monocoque replacing the old tubular steel arrangement, resulting in a dry weight around 220lbs less than that of the F355. The 360’s on-the-road dynamics constituted a significant advance, its best time around Ferrari’s Fiorano test track being some three seconds faster than the F355’s. This splendid example finished in Silver with Sumptuous black leather interior, has covered an average of 1,000 miles a year since it left the factory in 2002. With only two custodians since 2004 and having been owned by its current for the last 3 years, as you would imagine this Ferrari has been very well looked after. The continuous MOT history shows that the car has received regular yet sparing use, and we are informed by the vendor that the car has also benefitted from a recent service by Joe Macari less than 1,000 miles ago.

Estimate: £40,000 - £45,000
The TVR Grantura was the first model in a long line of TVR cars and debuted in 1958. The cars went through a series of developments up to the Mark IV and 1800S models, the last ones being made in 1967. These coupés were hand-built at the TVR factory in Blackpool, with varying mechanical specifications, and could also be purchased in kit form by the enthusiast. The first of the Granturas used a fibreglass body moulded to a tubular steel backbone chassis and VW Beetle-based front and rear suspension. The car was designed around a 1,098 cc Coventry Climax type FWA engine but many different makes were fitted from 1,172 cc Ford side valve to the 1600 cc BMC from the MGA. These cars ran at Le Mans in period, and many today are the most competitive of FIA race cars- such as the car on offer today. Believed to be the original chassis and body of a factory car used in the 1965 Blackpool promenade sprints before being registered for the road and sold in 1966, this race prepared MKIII is now fitted with a newly rebuilt MASS racing 1840 MGB engine. The car is fitted with a 7 port aluminium crossflow head and twin 40 Webers producing around 172 BHP at the flywheel, with recent rolling road figures to prove. The gearbox is a close ratio 4 speed box with a Gripper LSD differential and oil cooler for endurance racing. The current vendor has bills amounting to circa £28,000 recently spent on the engine, gearbox and rear end modifications. Prior to the current vendor the car has a full engine rebuild in 2012 by MASS Developments at at a cost of £10,341 and there are two bills from Nigel Reuben Racing totalling a further £10,513 for the new differential and rear end set up. The car has HTP papers for historic racing and was used in endurance races at Spa and Nurburgring by the cars previous owner.
1947 MG TC Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: T.B.C
Estimate: £18,000- £25,000
The right-hand drive TC Midget appeared in 1946, and was almost identical in appearance to the pre-war Types TA and TB. These MGs had many endearing features, including a slab fuel tank, 19-inch diameter wire wheels, folding windshields and octagonal dashboard instruments. Sales got a great lift when a Life Magazine photographer shot one being driven underneath a big lumber carrier on a Los Angeles street. Many soon found their way into amateur racing, and almost every one of the legendary American sports car champions of the post-war era began their careers in a TC. The MG TC on offer today is an original UK car, which was exported to Vancouver Island and then repatriated back to the UK where it was the subject of an indepth restoration. Bills on file total over 23,000 GBP for the work. Most recently the car has been fitted with a new Pickering hood, along with side screens and tonneau covers and is running on Dunlop tyres with new tubes. For those collectors looking for a well presented T-Series MG, capable of participating in driving events and Concours shows alike, this example is worthy of serious consideration.
1964 Fiat 600D Registration Number: Italian
Chassis Number: 1852567
Estimate: £6,000- £8,000
In 1955 FIAT replaced its revolutionary Topolino small saloon, which had been around in one form or another since 1936, introducing the successor ‘600’ model at that year’s Geneva Salon. Historically significant as the first rear-engined FIAT, the 600 was a masterpiece of automotive packaging, cramming accommodation for four into the same 2,000mm wheelbase as the outgoing two-seater Topolino, which it undercut on price. The integral chassis/body featured independent suspension all round, while the 633cc water-cooled four-cylinder overhead-valve engine produced 22bhp, which was good enough for a top speed of 100km/h. The most significant upgrade to this outstandingly successful design occurred in 1960 with the introduction of the 600D, which featured a 767cc engine, altered gearing and greatly improved performance. Although conceived as basic transport for the masses, the 600 would prove to be extremely capable on the racetrack, where examples modified by Carlo Abarth regularly turned in giant-killing performances, dominating their class and humbling larger-engined rivals. A 4 owner from new example , this particular car was driven from Rome to Nottingham , where it is reported to have run very well. The body and interior was restored over the summer months by the 3rd owner , a specialist in 600’s. The engine was rebuilt at this time. The body was painted in the original colour by the renowned painters Camerni of Rome. A loveable and excellent example of the model.
1959 MG Milano One of three produced Registration Number: TBC
Chassis Number: 0001
Estimate: £35,000 - £45,000
The car offered here is the first Milano MG built by Bruce Leer in 1959 using a Ferrari Monza styled open top Milano coachwork on an MG J2 chassis. The Milano body was constructed by renowned specialists JWF Glass-Fibre Industries (Australia). Ian Johnson was the J in JWF and joint owner with Bruce Leer. A TC engine running twin 1.5 inch SUs was used for power, driving a close ratio MG TC gearbox, TC diff housing with a modified A series diff centre. The Milano MG made its first competition appearance early in 1960 at Enoo Blass circuit at Orange. By 1961 the Milano MG held the under 1500cc lap record at Warwick Farm, and had bettered a top speed of 107 mph recorded on Con Rod Straight at Bathurst, and is reported to have achieved 120mph at Orange. The vendor informs us that the car has had a full body restoration and repaint in two pack orange, the original colour. Mechanically the car is said to be in excellent condition and running very well. The motor is an MG TF 1500 block with all steel internals and the head has been set up to run unleaded petrol. The car comes with Cams Historic Log Book and COD and is also eligible for FIA HTP papers. A very rare car that would be welcome at any number of historic racing events.
1964 Jaguar E-type Series 1 3.8 Roadster Multiple Concours winner. 43,000 miles. Matching Numbers Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: TBC
Estimate: £120,000 - £150,000
‘If Les Vingt Quatre Heures du Mans has been responsible for the new E-Type Jaguar, then that Homeric contest on the Sarthe circuit will have been abundantly justified. Here we have one of the quietest and most flexible cars on the market, capable of whispering along in top gear at 10mph or leaping into its 150mph stride on the brief depression of a pedal. A practical touring car, this, with its wide doors and capacious luggage space, yet it has a sheer beauty of line which easily beats the Italians at their own particular game.’ There have been few better summaries of the E-Type’s manifest virtues than the forgoing, penned by the inimitable John Bolster for Autosport shortly after the car’s debut. Conceived and developed as an open sports car, the Jaguar E-Type debuted at the Geneva Salon in March 1961 in Coupé form. The car caused a sensation - spontaneous applause breaking out at the unveiling - with its instantly classic lines and a 150mph top speed.
The newcomer’s design owed much to that of the Le Mans-winning D-Type sports-racer, a monocoque tub forming the main structure while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the 3.8-litre, triplecarburettor, ‘S’ unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. Its engine aside, only in terms of its transmission did the E-Type represent no significant advance over the XK150, whose durable four-speed Moss gearbox it retained. With a claimed 265bhp available, E-Type’s performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 500lbs less than the XK150 and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. Taller drivers though, could find the interior somewhat lacking in space, a criticism addressed by the introduction of foot wells (and other, more minor modifications) early in 1962. Today, the E-Types graceful lines live on in modern Jaguar sports cars, and there can be little doubt that William Lyons’ sublime creation would feature in any knowledgeable enthusiast’s ‘Top Ten’ of the world’s most beautiful cars of all time.
Manufactured in February 1964, this ‘Series 1’ was supplied new via Jaguar Cars, New York finished in dark blue with matching leather interior. The E-Type’s ownership history in the USA is unknown up to 1981 when the accompanying State of Ohio Title was issued to one Joe Maro of Campbell, Ohio. Exported to the UK in 1989, the car was first owned in this country by Mr J H P Hardwick of Cannock, Staffordshire, who had it fully restored by Bob Watson of Marston Green, Birmingham (see letter of confirmation on file). Works carried out included a total body rebuild by renowned specialists R S Panels; engine and gearbox overhaul by C F S Motors, the ‘box being the later all-synchromesh type; and an interior re-trim by Suffolk & Turley. Conversion to right-hand drive configuration was undertaken at this time. The E-Type’s second owner in the UK, Robert Anthony Hipkins of Kennington Road, London SE11, kept ‘EFD 747B’ from 1996 to 1999 when the car was sold to the current vendor via renowned marque specialists Eagle (copy of advertisement included) who have continued to maintain it. Eagle’s service invoices are on file together with a copy of the service handbook, Jaguar/Daimler dating letter, and a substantial quantity of expired MoT certificates dating back to 1989. ‘EFD 747B’ also comes with a copy of Classic Cars magazine (November 1996 edition) featuring it on the front cover and in an article, and a copy of the Birmingham NEC Classic Car Show programme featuring the E-Type as the centrefold. Described as in generally good/excellent condition, this well restored and well-maintained E-Type is offered with aforementioned history, current MoT/tax and V5C document.
1990 Aston Martin Virage Ex-Hunter Green V8 Commemorative Collection Less than 14,000 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: AMSLR 50016
Estimate: £60,000 - £80,000
Introduced at the Birmingham Motor Show in 1988, the Virage was joined by the high-performance Vantage in 1993, and the name of the standard car was changed to V8 Coupe in 1996. This V8-powered car was intended as the company’s top model, with the 6-cylinder 1994 DB7 positioned below it. Although the DB7 was switched to a V12 engine and claimed a performance advantage, this V8 model remained the exclusive, expensive, and hand-built flagship of the Aston Martin range. By the end of the 2000 model year, 1,050 of all Virage related models had been produced. “This Virage is the last vehicle of a series of nine V8 cars that were commissioned by an enthusiast in 1987 to celebrate 21 years of the Marek V8 cars, which came of age in 1990. They are all finished in the rich Hunter Green with Tan upholstery, burr walnut wood trim and dark green carpeting. All had registration numbers that were consecutive in the same Surrey C.C series. All except the Lagonda have manual gearboxes. In 1995 they passed into the caring hands of another enthusiast who built them a special garage with climate control. This owner, not having the time to exercise them all as he would wish, decided, with some reluctance, to sell them. Sadly, the collection was not sold as one, but broken up.” – Aston Martin Owners Club Register 2005. Having covered less than 14,000 miles from new, this early manual example of the Virage presents extremely well. The car received a full service, new clutch, release bearing and slave cylinder in February 2016 at Aston Martin Hagley and comes with a current MOT and UK V5C. A wonderfully original Virage with incredibly low mileage and fantastic provenance; a unique opportunity for the serious collector.
2009 Ford TSC GT40 Evocation by Tornado Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: AJMTSC1F363G67499
Estimate: £60,000 -£80,000
The purposeful mid-engine sports coupe is the finest Anglo-American supercar of the last century, with four straight victories at the Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race between 1966 and ’69. In 1966 alone, it finished 1-2-3 against Ferrari, in one of the most memorable photo finishes in the race’s distinguished history, cementing the car’s place in motorsports history and on the postered walls of teenaged bedrooms the world over. The Unique Ford GT40 evocation on offer today, is a complete one off- bespoke GT40 Lightweight specification car built in tribute to the Jacky Ickx GT40. Bodywork is the full Gulf wide arch kit with glass engine cover and rear window. The car has been professionally finished in the iconic Gulf livery with all sponsors airbrushed. The interior has been fitted with period replica seats, steering wheel, dash and gauges. A GPS speedo has been used for accuracy and a fire extinguisher system for safety. Purchased in 2012 this car had been built by a very high standard by Jeff Morris, a professor of engineering and Drag Car specialist. The remainder of the work was completed by Loaded Gunn Racing and the paintwork was done by BLD Group. Testament to the quality and attention to detail, the chassis has been powdercoated black and waxoyled and suspension arms, linkages and rollbars are all nickelplated. Its suspension is fully adjustable. The engine is a ford 302 5.7ltr with 8 stack Procomp fuel injection, JE pistons, H section forged conrods, road race cam, alloy heads and produces an impressive 380bhp. The exhaust is a 1.3/4” crossover with ceramic coating. The gearbox is the popular Renault Unitrak reworked by Chris Cole Engineering and has the higher 5th Ratio and Limited Slip Diff and connects to the engine with race clutch and flywheel. Brakes are by Wilwood and has 6 piston front callipers and 4 piston rears with integrated cable handbrake. Wheels are by Image and are BRM style 15” 8J Front and 12J Rears and functioning knock on spinners. The vendor describes the car to be one of the highest quality replicas on the market and that attention to detail can be seen everywhere and in little things such as chassis plate, bonnet catches and slam panel.
1999 Aston Martin DB7 Alfred Dunhill Limited Edition Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SCFAA1117XK102474
Estimate: £30,000 - £35,000
In June 1997 Aston Martin unveiled a unique DB7 derivative that had been produced for Alfred Dunhill, the leading British company specialising in men’s clothing and a range of luxury goods including writing implements, lighters, timepieces and fragrances. The car used design cues from many Alfred Dunhill products for the instruments, the interior appointments, various fittings and the exterior finish; in particular, elements of the ‘Millennium’ range of watches and the ‘AD 2000’ pen collection which were being launched later that year. Its exclusive luxury appointments included a humidor to contain fine cigars; a set of carbon fibre pens; a silver cigar cutter; a cigar lighter and a Dunhill Millennium watch set into the centre console. Special platinum metallic paintwork was chosen for the exterior and also for the wheels, the centres of which were inspired by the design of the Dunhill Millennium watch. The interior was upholstered in a contrasting Charcoal Connolly hide piped in silver grey, the traditional Aston Martin walnut veneers being replaced with brushed aluminium panels. Although the accompanying press release stated that the Alfred Dunhill DB7 was ‘A unique model and not for sale’, it was announced in December 1997 that production of up to 150 similar examples would begin in 1998, no doubt in response to demands from prospective customers. Two versions were to be offered – ‘smoking’ and ‘non smoking’ – the latter featuring a Dunhill grooming kit instead of the humidor. In the event, only 80-or-so Dunhill cars had been completed – in both coupé and Volante convertible versions – before the DB7 was discontinued. The wonderful DB7 Dunhill Edition offered here is number 38 and presented in Dunhill Platinum Silver with Charcoal leather interior. With only two previous owners and a recorded mileage of under 26,000, the car is described to be in excellent condition all round by its current vendor. The car benefits from a large history file, service book, current MoT and UK V5C registration. A very collectible example of a model which has been steadily on the rise.
1980 Saab 99 Turbo Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 99803002795
Estimate: £12,000 - £14,000
Making its world debut at the Frankfurt auto show in September 1977, the 99 Turbo instantly became one of the most emblematic cars in Saab’s entire history. The launch car, finished in a unique Pearl White, is part of the Saab AB factory collection in Trollhattan, Sweden. The four-cylinder 2.0 Litre Turbo engine offered 135bhp, compared to 115bhp for the standard engine. However, torque was increased dramatically. Saab was first to offer a turbo tuned for low speed torque in a sedan for daily driving, as opposed to high speed power in a pure sports car such as the Porsche 911. Saab also avoided problems previously encountered in turbocharging carburetted engines, by providing electronically controlled port fuel injection on the 99 Turbo. Emission control was via one of the first “closed loop” catalyst systems controlled by an oxygen sensor. A total of 10,607 Saab’s 99 Turbo were produced, starting with 100 test fleet cars in 1977 and continuing through 1982. It was offered in 2-door, 3-door, and (very few) 5-door body styles in Europe and a four-speed manual transmission was standard. Despite mostly understated exterior colors, each 99 Turbo was immediately recognizable by the specific “Inca” alloy wheels, front air dam, rear spoiler, interior upholstery, instrumentation and steering wheel. The 99 Turbo three-door hatchback was offered in the United States only during the 1978 model year, available in Black, Cardinal Red, Grey, and Silver. After an imported total of 4,233 cars, the 99 Turbo was replaced by the larger Saab 900 Turbo three and five-door hatchback as of 1979. First registered in May 1980, this wonderful later 99 Turbo has been in the custodianship of just three previous owners from new, supported by a sheaf of bills for servicing and repair works. The current owner, a serial Saab enthusiast and collector, purchased this non-sunroof 99 Turbo from a fellow enthusiast and garage owner who had owned and cherished the Saab for around 13 years. Over the years, and in addition to servicing and maintenance, the Turbo has benefited from a repaint in the original colour, the upgrading of the gearbox to a 5 speed unit, refurbishment of the rare Inca alloy wheels, and new tyres all round. Offered with an MoT to June 2018, in addition to service records and UK V5 document, this is a very nice example of one of the pioneers of modern turbo charged performance cars. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
