(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in writing to the Seller decline to sell the Lot, and the Seller shall be liable to Coys as though the Seller had withdrawn the lot from sale without Coys consent.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. Coys, its agents or employees shall not be responsible for any defaults beyond Coys’ control relating to telephone, fax or other absentee bids including without limitation any telecommunications fault or failure. 18. 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.

If the Buyer continues to fail to make payment of the Purchase Price in full within 14 days of it falling due under Condition 20.1, Coys may (if so instructed by the Seller, or acting of its own motion in accordance with Condition 21.4 below) without prejudice to any other rights it may have, exercise one or more of the following additional remedies: (a) To institute proceedings against the Buyer in its own name, or in the name of the Seller for damages or specific performance for breach of the sale contract; (b) To institute proceedings against the Buyer in its own name in respect of the Buyer’s Premium

Such notice will draw attention to the 14 day limit for the provision of instructions as set out in Condition 21.4 below. Coys shall if instructed take reasonable steps to assist the Seller but Coys shall be under no obligation to institute proceedings in its own name or personally incur any cost or expense. 21.4.

1986 Peugeot 205 GTI Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: VF3741C66G7218093
Estimate: £ £10,000 – £15,000
The King of the hot hatches. Volkswagen may have started the GTI craze in 1976, but many still consider the Peugeot 205 GTI as the greatest of them all. The 205 was launched in 1983, a brilliant rival to its contemporaries with its ‘wheel at each corner’ design and flyweight mass. No wonder it won What Cars ‘Car of the Year’ in 1984 and was declared ‘Car of the Decade’ by CAR Magazine in 1990. The 205 1.6 GTI arrived in April 1984, singled out for its sublime handling and revvy 105bhp engine. The 205 T16 winning the World Rally Championship in 1985, helping to promote the road-going 205’s inherent abilities and ultimate potential. The GTI model was produced until 1994, firmly establishing itself as a must-have future classic and today, low-mileage, genuine examples are very rare, extremely hard to unearth and much sought-after. This lovely 1.6 litre example shows C39,370 miles from new and comes complete with a compressive history file including a full-service history. Owned by just two custodians from new the car presents itself very well, there are very few blemishes to the paint and the interior is in good condition throughout. In good running order this low mileage 205 GTI is offered with two keys and a UK registration document.
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.
1993 MG RV8 One of Under 50 Original UK Cars Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: 000297
Estimate: £15,000 – £20,000
In 1992, 12 years after the last MG sports car had rolled off the Abingdon production lines, Austin-Rover made the inspired decision to revive this most charismatic of British marques by introducing an entirely new model – the MG RV8. The success of the Heritage MGB replacement bodyshell had demonstrated the continuing popularity of that car, so the decision was taken to base the new model on MG’s most successful sports car, suitably re-engineered for the 1990s. The MG RV8 was announced at the 1992 Motor Show, its launch being timed to coincide with the MGB’s 30th anniversary. Although recognisably related to its distinguished forebear, the RV8 was wider, lower and sleeker, featuring fully integrated body-coloured bumpers in the modern idiom. Beneath the powerbulged bonnet there was the latest 3.9-litre version of the Rover V8 engine, a modern derivative of that used to power the MGB V8 back in the 1970s, mated to a Rover LT77 five-speed manual gearbox. With a maximum power output of 188bhp and capable of a top speed of 135mph, the RV8 was the most powerful MG ever at the time of its launch. The UK price on introduction was £26,500. Only 1,983 MG RV8s were built in total making this a future classic, around 75% of these were exported to Japan with the remainder sold new in the UK. There was no left-hand drive version. This lovely example was produced on the 23rh May 1993 and is a rare one of only 43 UK Right hand drive models. Offered in its original colour combination of Night Fire Red over Dark Stone leather trim. Many invoices accompany the car as well as a Uk registration document, Heritage certificate and Mot until January 2019. Showing a mere 85,598 miles on the odometer this is a superb opportunity to acquire a low mileage rare model.
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.
1980 Saab 99 Turbo Standard and unmolested Three previous owners with comprehensive history Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 99803002795
Estimate: £9,000 - £12,500
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 nonsunroof 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.
1962 Lamborghini 2R Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 11745
Estimate: £12,000 - £15,000
Lamborghini Trattori was founded in 1948 and were well-known for the production of not just tractors, but also of military and industrial engines. The company grew quickly, developing many specialized models and becoming one of the largest agricultural manufacturers in Italy. Details of Sig. Lamborghini’s tractor production are usually just a side note to the stories surrounding the 400 GT, Miura, Countach etc. however, he was, in fact, a very successful industrialist and the tractors that bear his name are still in production today. The 2R model is powered by a three cylinder, air cooled diesel engine, producing 39bhp fed through a four-speed gearbox with high and low diff settings. This Lamborghini 2R Tractor is presented in truly remarkable condition having recently restoration. Largely original and correct, the 2R comes with its original Italian registration papers. The agricultural cousin of the Muria and 400GT the 2R is a must-have feature vehicle for any collector or enthusiast, a great example of where it all began for the brand. Alternatively, with the PTO at the back, it’s a very practical proposition for anyone who might want to put it to use on a smallholding or around the farm. At today’s guide price, we challenge anyone to find an expertly restored 1960’s Lamborghini for less than £20,000! But this Lamborghini is now offer on sale with very low reserve.
1989 Ford Escort XR3i Cabriolet 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.
1988 Audi Quattro 3,000 miles since engine rebuild. Registration Number: Uk registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £20,000- £30,000
The early 1980’s is often thought of as the “golden era” of rally racing. The principle governing body for motorsports, the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), introduced a new category called Group B in 1982 to replace the rear-wheel drive Group 2 and the sportscar class Group 4 categories. Group B permitted all-wheel drive drivelines and near limitless horsepower output. With relatively low production numbers needed to satisfy homologation requirements, this class prompted the development of some of the fastest and most powerful rally cars in the history of the motorsport. One of the manufacturers that responded to the opportunity to compete in Group B was Audi, who campaigned the first all-wheel drive vehicle in rally racing. In a field dominated by rear-wheel drivelines, Audi engineers effectively pioneered and implemented an all-wheel driveline into the Audi Quattro 80 A1 (urQuattro, or “original” Quattro). With rally drivers such as Michèle Mouton, Hannu Mikkola and Stig Blomqvist behind the wheel, the Quattro dominated. Audi won the constructors’ title in 1982, and second place in 1983, validating the effectiveness of all-wheel drive. Despite its innovations, the Quattro was not without its weaknesses. Excessive length and weight became apparent when compared to its peers in the class, Ford, Lancia and Peugeot. Audi furthered its development of the Quattro, leading to the eventual introduction of an even higher performing Audi contender, the Sport Quattro S1, in 1984. In the hands of Blomqvist, Mikkola, Walter Röhrl and Mouton, the Sport Quattro S1 raised the bar once again. Audi was at the top of the constructors’ podium once again in 1984. In addition to Group B competition, the Sport Quattro S1 proved formidable on the mountain. With Mouton behind the wheel, it won the 1985 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and set a hill climb record. The Quattro on offer today was bought in Glasgow by the current vendor. He then undertook a bare metal respray. Mechanically the car is fitted with an S2 20 valve unit, the car was re-assembled by Quattro Concepts of Watlington and it has covered a mere 3,000 miles since the work. Said to drive superbly this iconic example of the Quattro warrants a closer inspection. 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.
1973 Aston Martin V8 Original Right Hand Drive Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: V8/11046/RCA
Estimate: ÂŁ65,000- ÂŁ80,000
Although always intended to house the new Tadek Marek-designed V8, the DBS first appeared with the 4.0-litre straight six of the concurrently produced DB6. Styled in-house by Bill Towns, the four-seater DBS employed a platform-type chassis with independent suspension all round: wishbone and coil-spring at the front, De Dion with Watts linkage at the rear. Bigger and more luxuriously appointed than the DB6, the heavier DBS disappointed some by virtue of its slightly reduced performance, but there were no complaints when the V8 arrived in 1969.
With an estimated 345bhp available from its 5,340cc, fuel-injected, four-cam motor, the DBS V8 could reach 100mph in under 14 seconds, running on to a top speed of 160mph - a staggering performance in those days and one which fully justified the claim that it was the fastest production car in the world. Even in automatic transmission form the V8 could reach 100mph in around 15 seconds and better 145mph flat-out.
In 1972 the acquisition of Aston Martin by Company Developments brought with it a change of name for the V8-engined cars: out went DBS V8, in came AM V8. This new Series 2 was readily distinguishable by its restyled front that now featured two instead of four headlamps and recalled the looks of the earlier DB six-cylinder cars. Electronic ignition and air conditioning were now standard. A desirable, automatic transmission model, chassis number ‘11046’ was first delivered in 1973, and has covered a mere 66,300 miles since. Offered with its original instruction booklet, a certificate of authenticity and original brochure; it comes complete with a good history file with a vast array of old MoT’s, bills and receipts. The car is finished in arguably the best colour combination for a V8- Aston, pewter light green metallic with complementary back hide. One of the most sought after of post-war Aston Martins, this beautiful V8 is worthy of the closest inspection.
Porsche 911 3.2 Cabriolet Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ91ZH5150202
Estimate: £30,000 – £40,000
A ‘modern classic’ if ever there was one, Porsche’s long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter’s rearengine layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356’s VWbased suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche’s single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. Porsche’s first take on a 911 convertible had been the Targa model of 1965, a ‘halfway house’ design chosen because of fears that a genuine soft-top would not meet US Federal safety regulations, but by 1981 the company felt able to proceed with the genuine article. Introduced in normally aspirated 3.0-litre form in 1982, the 911 Cabriolet lost little, if any, rigidity with the deletion of the Targa roll-over bar, while its speedily raised/lowered top featured a detachable, zip-fastened rear window. Introducing a ‘proper’ soft-top proved to be a shrewd move by Porsche, as sales immediately exceed those of the Targa version, and the popular Cabriolet continued when the ‘Carrera’ name was applied to all 911 models in 1983, co-incidentally with the introduction of the 3.2-litre engine. Not merely enlarged, the new engine was also extensively revised and produced 231bhp, 27 horsepower up on its predecessor. The 911 Carrera’s top speed was now 152mph, with 100mph reachable in a breath-taking 13.6 seconds. This example on offer is presented in its original colour combination and is presented in good all-round order. The panels and bodywork are straight and the engine runs well. Offered with full service history and a valid mot. Ready for a new custodian.
1966 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Rare Manual Gearbox Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £40,000 - £60,000
“The Sting Ray hit the American sports car market like a thunderclap, reminiscent of the knock-’em-dead debut of the Jaguar E-Type two years previously; comparisons were not slow to materialize. For the first time in history the Corvette was a sell-out success.” Richard M Langworth, The Complete Book Of The Corvette. To say that the Sting Ray’s arrival caused a sensation would be grossly understating its impact on the North American sports car market. Indeed, such was its runaway success that the St Louis factory hired a second shift but still could not build cars fast enough to meet demand. Styled in General Motors’ Art and Colour Studio under Bill Mitchell, the new Corvette featured radical styling pioneered on Mitchell’s successful Stingray sports-racer, and for the first time there was a Gran Turismo coupé in the range. Beneath the skin was an all-new ladder-frame chassis with independent rear suspension, the adoption of which enabled the centre of gravity to be significantly lowered, improving both roadholding and ride. This new frame was the work of Corvette Chief Engineer, Zora Arkus-Duntov who said: ‘For the first time I have a Corvette which I am proud to use in Europe.’ As had been the case with the previous (1956-62) generation of Corvettes, development proceeded slowly, being characterized by annual facelifts and few engineering changes of note. On the latter front, the long-overdue arrival of fourwheel disc brakes was the most significant development for 1965 while Chevrolet’s 327ci (5.4-liter) 250bhp standard V8 was joined by an optional 396ci (6.5-liter) Big Block for ‘65 only, then a ‘427’ until the end of Sting Ray production in 1967. Now recognized as representing a ‘golden age’ for the Corvette, the Sting Ray version was manufactured from 1963 to 1967 and has since gone on to become a highly collectible modern classic. The sporting Corvette offered here is a rare manual version finished in Milano Maroon. Recently serviced, this beautiful 1966 Roadster is ready for spirited drives on rallies, and should be powerful enough to satisfy your straight-line “needfor-speed”! 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.
1951 Jaguar XK120 Roadster Original Right Hand Drive Example Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: ÂŁ100,000 - ÂŁ120,000
The Jaguar XK120 caused an absolute sensation when it was launched at the 1948 Motor Show. In the post-war era of rationing, general austerity and hardship it came as a stunning vision of what the future might hold. It was, without doubt, the most beautiful car in the world, and the fastest unsupercharged production sports model ever made up to that time. Its claimed top speed of 120mph was so astonishing that to prove it Jaguar took one over to Belgium and clocked 132mph!
The response from the public at the Motor Show launch on 20th October 1948 caught Jaguar by surprise, and as orders poured in it was immediately obvious that the level of home and export demand could only be satisfied by moving from a lightweight alloy-bodied ash frame construction to tooling up for volume production in steel. This took time to achieve and the first 57 right hand drive cars, and 183 left-hand drive cars, were hand-produced in lightweight aluminium alloy. Throughout the 6 year production run, Jaguar manufactured a mere 609 Right hand drive roadsters for the home market and we are proud to be offering one of them here today. Finished Mist grey with red leather interior, this Matching numbers UK Right hand drive XK120 Roadster has been subject to a recent no-expense-spared mechanical and cosmetic renovation. Mechanical works completed included overhauling the brakes, steering, suspension, all bushes and carburettor, as well as the supply and fitting of new exhaust system, vitreous enamel manifolds, shock absorbers, rear leaf springs, clutch, plugs, brake lines, fuel lines, petrol pump and complete electrical system.
Furthermore the quality level in which the cars detailed cosmetic restoration has been finished, can only be fully appreciated when viewing the car in the flesh. Having been subject to a bare metal respray, total re-trim including all weather equipment and re-chroming of all of the brightwork, this rare Right hand drive XK120 Roadster is truly a fantastic example and is ready to be enjoyed in the forthcoming summer months.
1973 BMW 3.0 CSI - Original UK/RHD 1 previous owner – less than 24,000 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 2265336
Estimate: £45,000 - £55,000
With BMW looking to push the marque further upmarket, the combination of their bahn-storming six cylinder engine and a pretty but underpowered Coupé in its portfolio, it was almost inevitable that the two would get together. The resulting E9 Coupé is one of BMW’s best ever Coupés. British buyers had to wait until 1969 before they could sample the new car and shortly after, in 1971, the 3.0 CS made its debut with another 10bhp and more torque for better flexibility. This year also saw the introduction of this car – the 3.0 CSI fuel injected version, and with more power it became BMW’s first 200bhp plus machine. It was always an expensive machine at some £6,000 when new in 1971 – that would have bought you a Porsche 911 of the period or even an entrylevel Ferrari. In recent years, prices of its big brother, the legendary CSL have rapidly risen to a whole new league with the CSI’s tipped to follow.
What we have on offer here today is a very rare example; one of only 207 right-hand-drive CSI’s ever produced, less than half that of the number of right-hand-drive CSL’s of which a modest 500 were made. Purchased by its second and current owner on the 23rd of August 1999, the car has been kept in immaculate condition ever since. With an incredibly low recorded mileage of 23,200, under its current ownership the car has always been stored in a climate controlled garage and has almost never been driven in the rain or wet roads.
It is for all practical purposes in the condition in which it was delivered to its first owner all those years ago, showing a modest level of age-related wear and tear, its condition is a true testament to the level of care to which this car has been the subject of. With around 40 CSIâ€™s currently on UK roads today including left-hand-drive examples of which 7,935 were produced, to find a right-hand-drive one with such impeccable ownership history, mileage and service history is almost impossible.
2006 Ford Mustang 450 GT Cervini bodied Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: IZVFT82H655130861
Estimate: £15,000 - £20,000
Ford introduced a re-designed 2005 model year Mustang at the 2004 North American International Auto Show that was based on the new D2C platform. Developed under the direction of Chief Engineer Hau Thai-Tang, a veteran engineer for Ford’s IndyCar program under Mario Andretti, and exterior styling designer Sid Ramnarace. The fifth-generation Mustang’s styling echoes the fastback Mustang models of the late-1960s. For the 2005 to 2010 production years, the base model was powered by a 210bhp cast-iron block 4.0 L SOHC V6, while the GT used an aluminum block 4.6 L SOHC 3-valve Modular V8 with variable camshaft timing that produced 300bhp. Base models had a Tremec T5 5-speed manual transmission with Ford’s 5R55S 5-speed automatic being optional. Automatic GTs also featured this, but manual GTs had the Tremec TR-3650 5-speed. This menacing looking Mustang has benefitted from a full makeover by specialists, Cervini, which the vendor tells us included a supercharger and uprated suspension. Presented in bronze with black interior, this car has a reported 30,000 miles showing on the odometer and is described to be in an overall good condition throughout. A true American muscle car with that iconic Fastback line.
1954 Land Rover Series 1 Registration Number UK Registered
Chassis Number: 57102040
Estimate: £15,000 - £20,000
Inspired by the US Army’s wartime ‘Jeep’, developed in haste and intended for short-term, small-scale production, the Land Rover would defy its creators’ initial scepticism. Rover bosses the Wilks brothers saw the need for a tough, four-wheeldrive, utility vehicle to serve the needs of the agricultural community in the immediate post-war years, but even so the Land Rover’s runaway success took the company by surprise. Ruggedly built and simple in construction, the Land Rover proved capable of surviving in countries where conditions were primitive (to say the least), a virtue that helped contribute to its worldwide acceptance. Indeed, it is estimated that two-thirds of all Land Rovers ever produced are still in existence today. First delivered new in December of 1954, this wonderful early Series 1 Land Rover resided for many years in the Hampshire estate of Burlyns Ball Hill, in the custodianship of a Major Eustace Bonnet. Exhumed after many years stored in barns on the estate, the Series 1 has enjoyed a careful and sympathetic restoration by the current owner, a Land Rover enthusiast. The engine was rebuilt and converted to run on unleaded fuel, and during the rebuild many either new or old stock/OEM parts used wherever possible. Careful not to over restore the Series 1, our vendor had it painted in a satin finish shade of green, and trimmed it with canvas seating. Supplied with history file and UK V5, this is a well presented example of the early Land Rover, and one which nicely strikes the balance between restoration and preservation.
1995 Porsche 968 Sport Registered to the current keeper since 2005 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WP0ZZZ96ZSS815170
Estimate: £19,000 - £23,000
Between 1993 and 1995 Porsche offered a lighter-weight “Clubsport” version of the 968 for enthusiasts seeking increased track performance. The car was offered in basic stripped out form with no air conditioning, sunroof, or electric windows and no sound proofing either. Revised track suspension, Recaro seats, 17” wheels with 225 front and 255 rear tyres and a close ratio 6 speed manual gearbox all featured as standard, although airbags, heated washer jets, rear seat and rear wiper were all removed. This was a serious no compromise track car with performance to match from it’s 3.0 litre 16V 240bhp engine. The ‘Sport’ was a later, more refined edition fitted with more comfortable seats and electric windows, but otherwise identical to the ‘Clubsport’ without the graphics. First registered on the 27th of October 1994 as a 1995 model, this particular example is one of the desirable 968 sport models which were only supplied to the UK market. Having covered a mere 65,225 miles from new the car comes with a complete service history as depicted below. Registered to the same registered keeper since 2005. Its desirable Midnight blue paintwork is said to be great and stone-chip free thanks to having been fitted with anti-stone chip coating to its paintwork. The interior is also said to be in brilliant condition and a true credit to its fastidious owners. Tyres are N rated and matching. The car is also supplied with all of its service books and two sets of keys and a fresh MOT will be provided before the auction.
1968 Daimler Sovereign Exceptional history file including 22 MOT certificates Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 1433885BW
Estimate: £18,000 - £22,000
The Daimler Sovereign was introduced at the October 1966 London Motor Show, and produced for two years as the ultimate expression of a series of ‘compact sporting saloons’ offered by Jaguar throughout that decade, all of which shared the same wheelbase. Developed from the Jaguar S-Type, the 420 cost around £200 more than that model and effectively ended buyer interest in it, although the S-Type continued to be sold alongside the 420/Sovereign until both were supplanted by the Jaguar XJ6 late in 1968. First registered on the 1st December 1968 to Mrs Wilby of Clobbs Gorse, Hampshire, the car remained in her ownership until 1991. It was subsequently sold by Beaulieu Cars Ltd on the 25th April 1991, and correspondence states that the car was chauffeur driven since new and fully serviced throughout and had covered 26,000 miles. The car came into the possession of Frederick Newman of Pinner on the 14th may 1991 with the third owner, Michael De Boer of East Molesey taking ownership on the 28th May 2011. The car is presented in the stunning and original combination of pacific blue with a contrasting grey hide interior with few if any better preserved than this example. With 28,000 miles recorded and supplied with its original registration number OYY 393, it is perhaps the finest on the market and is supplied with its original Daimler handbook wallet which contains its original operating, maintenance and service handbook; Periodic Maintenance voucher booklet; original sales booklet as well as the original owner’s service policy pamphlet. Twenty-two old MoT certificates dating back to 1971 accompany the UK V5 document, various correspondence and bills in the history file. A unique and truly stunning motor car that is described by the owner to be nothing less than excellent in all respects.
2005 Aston Matrin Vanquish S 17,500 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SCFAC1434513501699
Estimate: £120,000 - £150,000
Developed from the 1998 Project Vantage concept car, the V12 Vanquish entered production in 2001. The Vanquish marked a large step in the company’s engineering featuring a bonded aluminium chassis combined with many pieces of traditional craftsmanship ushering in a new era for Aston Martin. V12 Vanquish featured a body tub made from extruded aluminium and Carbon Fibre with extensive use of more Carbon Fibre and composite materials throughout the crash structure of the car. This extremely rigid and safe body-shell was then clothed in hand-finished, Superformed aluminium panels. Underneath the handmade bonnet sat a 460bhp version of the Aston Martin V12 engine, delivering its power via a 6-speed manual gearbox controlled by an electro-hydraulic paddle shift gear change. Building on the sales success of the original Vanquish the Vanquish S featured an increase in engine power (up from 460bhp to 520bhp) and revised gear and back axle ratios. Top speed was quoted as being in excess of 200mph, making it one of the fastest Aston Martin road cars built at Newport Pagnell. The exterior panels were still lovingly hand finished in the factory panel shop from Superformed aluminium. Discreet changes to the ‘S’ included a bigger, revised grille, front splitter and a raised rear ‘spoiler’ built into the boot lid to keep the car stable at high speed. Inside, the Vanquish S showed what could be achieved with beautiful hand stitched leather. The dashboard and many of the smaller interior pieces were now trimmed in hide adding to the bespoke feel of the already impressive coupe. Very late cars adopted updated switchgear, an Aston Martin audio system and standard fit Satellite Navigation screen. This wonderful example has covered a mere 17,500 miles from new and is described to be in excellent condition throughout. Presented in black metallic with a sumptuous contrasting tan interior, this car has been fastidiously maintained and benefits from a full main dealer service history. Along with the stamped service book, there is also the original owner’s manual and tool kit present with the car. A stunning example of this sought after limited edition Aston which has shown to be a strong investment over recent years. (Interested parties should note that the private plate is not included in the sale.)
2009 Holden Lumina Ordered by GM and raced in period, built at a cost of £154,000 Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000
Based on a Holden Commodore VE chassis, this touring car version was originally built by General Motors to FIA specification for a single make championship in Bahrain, supporting the Bahrain Grand Prix in 2010 and 2011. The car was rebuilt in 2015 in order to enter the Britcar Endurance series, and was sponsored by Dunlop in 2015 - 2016.
The engine used was a normally aspirated water-cooled LSX 376 V8 pushing out c.450 bhp through a sequential gearbox and via a ZF LSD to the rear. The suspension is fully adjustable, and the dual system braking is supplied by AP Racing and PFC. The body shell has been optimised for reduced weight and improved aerodynamics, and fitted with a welded-in roll cage, electric fire extinguishing system, and 80 litre fuel tank.
Our vendor advises that a full spares package is available upon request, and by separate negotiation. A full printout of the specification is also available upon request. Built at a cost of ÂŁ154,000, this highly capable race car is offered with a very sensible reserve price.
2012 Ferrari FF UK delivered with 35,000 miles recorded and full Ferrari Service History Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFF73K000984030
Estimate: £100,000 - £120,000
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 well specified UK-delivered example, finished in Nero Black with a Cognac leather interior, is showing a mere c.36,000 miles from new with full Ferrari service history. 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.
1968 Porsche 912 European delivered with c.45,000 kilometres recorded from new
Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 129020996
Estimate: £30,000 - £35,000
Put into production in July 1964, the 911 presaged the end of 356-production. It was July 1965 before the 911 made it to the US, and customers immediately noticed the differences from its predecessor. In addition to being more modern and more powerful, it was also more expensive: nearly $2,000 more than the comparable 356 model. In Europe, too, this was a problem. Thus, by April 1965 a “transitional model” entered production. Essentially a 911 with a 356-type flat four, the new car, designated “912,” was not only less expensive, selling at near-356 prices, but enjoyed more even weight distribution and better economy. The combination of the four-cylinder engine and the slipperier 911 design was capable of achieving 30 mpg. This exceptional and original Porsche 912, finished in Irish Green (colour code 6806 / 213), was first delivered new to the Netherlands in 1968. Since being brought into the UK in 2015 the 912 has been maintained and serviced by Porsche 912 specialist ‘Porsche 912 Revival Cars.’ According to our vendor the car drives beautifully, enhanced by the fitment of Weber 401DF carburetors in 2016 (the original Solex carburettors are available if required). To improve handling the 912 has been fitted with special order Koni shock absorbers all round, and braking is bettered by new discs on each corner. The car’s original Fuchs wheels have also been refurbished to original specification, and protected with a special coating. Showing 45,000, and although we are unable to confirm if this is genuine, the running of the engine would suggest this is a genuine low mileage example. Offered with all receipts and invoices for works completed since 2015, and a fresh MOT to 2019, this is a great opportunity own a genuine European-delivered 912 in great shape and ready to enjoy.
1969 Porsche 911 T -Matching numbers example Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 119122793
Estimate: £75,000 - £85,000
‘The 911 is the best Porsche ever – all the vices of the old suspension have been eliminate, and the modern offbeat styling should have a much broader appeal than the old bathtub shape. The overhead-cam, air-cooled flat 6-cylinder engine, the 5-speed all-synchro transmission, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are irresistible to anybody who ever felt a flicker of desire for any Porsche in the past.’ Car & Driver. The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. In 1967 the 911T (Touring) was introduced as a new base model, initially with the 2.0-litre engine in 110bhp form before gaining the 2.2-litre unit along with the rest of the range in 1969, by which time the 911’s wheelbase had been extended by 57mm to tame the sometimes wayward handling. Such was the 911’s success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them, a state of affairs that led to a substantial proportion being manufactured by coachbuilder Karmann at its Osnabrück factory.
This stunning, recently restored example of a rare 1969 911T with fully working Sportomatic transmission is presented in its original colour scheme of red with red interior. Imported from the USA by the current owner in 2013, the car has undergone a full restoration over the last four years with work undertaken by Porsche Specialists Nine Excellence, together with Porsche Approved Body Shop. Imported from the USA by the owner in October 2013 this matching number 1969 911 Touring with Sportomatic transmission has undergone a full restoration over the last four years. The work has been conducted by Porsche Specialist Nine Excellence together with Porsche Approved Body Shop. The car has been restored completely whilst retaining original parts. The bodywork has been painted in the original colour, the car had a complete new underside fitted by Porsche Ap-
proved Body Shop. The interior has been fully re-trimmed retaining original parts where appropriate. The engine has been restored, with original carburettors rebuilt and the transmission has been overhauled and works perfectly. The rest of the mechanics have been overhauled including the shocks, brakes etc. The semi-automatic transmission known as Sportomatic had a conventional synchromesh gearbox along with a torque converter and a normal clutch which was controlled by a vacuum controlled lever. Shifting gears without a clutch pedal to press resulted in very smooth changes and a more relaxed drive when compared to its manual siblings. Over the decades many of these transmissions were converted to manual transmission which means there are very few left that work as well as this one does. With a recorded 41,847 miles and extensive history folder including COA and original parts, this is an excellent opportunity to purchase what we considered to be one of the best available examples. Everything on the car is matching numbers and whilst there is no need for a MoT due to its age, the car has passed with no advisories.
1988 Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: A05A8JLA12269
Estimate: £250,000- £350,000
In 1966, Lamborghini defined the ‘supercar’ with the Miura. Instantly an icon, the mid-engine high-velocity coupe put the nascent carmaker on the map for groundbreaking design and performance. The legendary Miura was always going to be a hard act to follow, so the extent to which its successor eclipsed the greatest of 1960s supercars came as something of a shock to all. The sensation of the 1971 Geneva Salon, the Countach was styled, like its predecessor, by Bertone’s Marcello Gandini. Drawing from his revolutionary Lancia Stratos Zero concept the year before, Gandini designed the Countach as an angular wedge with crisp lines and dramatic angles. The production version would not be seen for another two years, with deliveries commencing in 1974.
Lamborghini employed the Miura’s fantastic four-cam V12 engine for the Countach, mounted longitudinally behind the cabin. To achieve optimum weight distribution, designer Paolo Stanzani placed the five-speed gearbox ahead of the engine between the seats, and the differential – driven by a shaft passing through the sump – at the rear. The result was a delightful gearchange and a better-balanced car than the Miura. When production began in 1974, the Countach sported an improved spaceframe chassis and the standard 4.0-liter, instead of the prototype’s 5.0-litre, engine. Even with the smaller engine producing ‘only’ 370bhp, the lightweight Countach could attain 170mph and, as one would expect, offered incredible roadholding and maneuverability.
The first upgrades appeared in 1978 as the ‘LP400S’, with the addition of flared wheel arches to accommodate massive 345mm rear tires for increased grip and stability. A large rear aerofoil became available that further accentuated the outrageous styling of the Countach and was, unsurprisingly, the choice of most customers. The Countach’s largest potential market, the USA, remained untapped until the arrival of the ‘emissions friendly’ LP500S in 1982. While horsepower remained the same as the smaller engine, the updated 4,754cc unit delivered a welcome boost in torque.
The ultimate iteration of the Countach debuted in 1985 as the Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole, named for its thunderous 5,167cc engine and new four-valvesper-cylinder heads. This 414 horsepower version was capable of an astonishing top speed of 186 mph. In 1987, the design of the Countach became more outrageous still, with the addition of straked sideskirts. First roaring to life in Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese workshop in October of 1987, this 1988 model year Bianco Polo Park Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole was destined for the US market. Featuring a fuel-injected version of Lamborghini’s new 48-valve 5,167cc V12, this potent supercar was driven sparingly by its first owner, an Illinois resident according to the cars CARFAX. By 1995, this rare Italian supercar had covered just over 8,000 miles when it came was sold to a collector who kept it maintained and stored in a climate and humidity controlled museum setting for 15 years. Thanks to careful maintenance over the past 27 years, the Quattrovalvole on offer remains in highly original condition. The angular Kevlar and aluminum bodywork is very straight and the Bianco Polo Park paintwork presents beautiful throughout. At some point, the large American-market bumpers were removed, replaced with the considerably less intrusive European-specification examples.
Upon raising the iconic scissor-style doors, the cabin is swathed in its original black leather, which shows minimal wear and retains a rich black hue. The bolstered seats are in similarly good condition, as is expected with such a low mileage example. All gauges and interior features, including the air-conditioning, are in fine working order. With fewer than 35,000 kilometers shown on the odometer, a figure believed to be the cars actual mileage from new, this Countach underwent an extensive servicing in October of 2015, preparing it to be enjoyed by its next owner, who returned the car to the UK where it has been maintained as part of his collection. Offered with its original tool kit and jack, this Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole is an absolute head-turner in highly original state and, thanks to its recently serviced V12, performs as incredibly as it looks.
2003 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFDT57B000133631
Estimate: ÂŁ130,000 - ÂŁ150,000
The first model to be rolled out was the 360 Modena, followed later by the 360 Spider, and finally, as a special edition, the Challenge Stradale, which was the highest performance road-legal version of the 360 produced by the factory, featuring carbon ceramic brakes (from the Enzo), track tuned suspension, aerodynamic gains, weight reduction, power improvements and revised gearbox software among its track focused brief. From a handling and braking performance perspective, it was the equivalent of adding a FHP (Fiorano Handling Pack) to the 360, which was available for V12 models such as the 550, 575 or F599 but never separately for the V8s.
Finished in the traditional shade of Rossa Corsa, this 2003 Challenge Stradale is offered with all of its original books and tools alongside an extensive service history which includes the fitting of a new clutch, exhaust and cambelt service less than 2,000kmâ€™s ago, a break down for which can be seen below. It is quite clear from its history that the car has been looked after and maintained over the years with no expense spared and as such the car drives just as well as it did the day it left the factory. Showing a respectable 52,000 kilometres (c. 32,000 miles) recorded, this is an excellent example in all respects and having benefitted from a recent service by Maranello, provides a highly rewarding driving experience with strong investment potential over the coming years.

1958 Jaguar XK150 Open Two Seater JDC Concours Winner Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: S831029
Estimate: £90,000 - £110,000
Although having a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140, the XK150 was radically modernized. A one piece windscreen replaced the split screen and the wing line no longer dropped as much over the doors. The bonnet was widened, opened down to the wings, and on the roadster the bulkhead was moved back four inches to make the bonnet longer. In the interior, the XK140’s walnut dashboard was replaced by one trimmed in leather. On the early drophead coupés, an aluminum centre dash panel with an X pattern engraving was fitted which looked similar to the early 3.8 E-type. It was discontinued after June 1958. Thinner doors gave more interior space. The standard engine, the same as fitted to the XK140, was the 3.4 litre DOHC Jaguar straight six rated at 180bhp at 5750rpm but most cars were fitted with the SE engine that had a modified cylinder head with larger exhaust valves rated at 210bhp at 5500rpm. Twin 1.75-inch SU HD6 carburetors were fitted. Four-wheel Dunlop 12 inch disc brakes appeared for the first time although it was theoretically possible to order a car with drums. Either wire wheels or disc wheels could be specified. Suspension and chassis were very similar to that on the XK140. These were high performance, well appointed sports touring cars and could cope with long distances with alacrity.
First registered in July 1958, this beautiful example has benefitted from exhaustive restoration over an eight year period, which was completed in the early 2000s. The bodywork was undertaken by specialist Contour Autocraft, whilst all trimming and upholstery was performed by MCT (Mic Turley), arguably the foremost UK Jaguar trimmer, using original patterns from Jaguar themselves. The restoration was finally completed with meticulous attention to detail and aided by past Jaguar Driver’s Club judges. As a result the XK went on to win the JDC Concours d’Elegance in 2000 and 2001, and was also a finalist in the Auto-
glym competition of 2001. S831029 has also appeared on the Discovery Channels, â€˜A Car is Rebornâ€™ television series. After winning the previously mentioned competitions, a number of sympathetic modifications were carried out to make it more driver-friendly. Power steering, electronic ignition and an electric cooling fan were added as well as highly effective Coopercraft brakes and a modern alternator. In addition, a stainless steel exhaust system has been added with all original parts kept if required. A very rare set luggage and the original and complete tool kit are included. Possibly one of the finest in the country, this XK150 Roadster represents many thousands of hours of effort as well as a keen eye for performance and style.
1970 Mercedes Benz 280SL Rare Right Hand Drive Example Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 11304422011176
Estimate: £70,000- £90,000
The last of a popular and extremely successful line begun with the 230 SL of 1963, the Mercedes-Benz 280 SL was introduced in 1967 powered by a new 2.8-litre six-cylinder engine that produced 180bhp, 20 horsepower more than the preceding 250 SL’s. The 280 SL’s 120mph top speed was no greater but it was significantly quicker off the mark, its 0-60mph time of 10 seconds being a whole second better than its predecessor’s. Christened ‘Pagoda’ after their distinctive cabin shape with its generous glass area, these SL models were amongst the best-loved sports-tourers of their day and remain highly sought after by collectors. An automatic transmission model, this particular original right hand drive 280 SL is finished in silver with a navy blue soft-top, this beautiful 280 SL is fitted with its original matching numbers engine. The 280 versions are the most desirable of the “Pagoda” Mercedes and as such are sought after by serious collectors and investors.
1997 Aston Martin DB7 Coupe Owned by the former AMOC Club Secretary Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SCFAA1113TK100697
Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000
Introduced to the public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin’s first six cylinder model since production of the DB6 Mk. II ended in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen in its design. Arguably one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted new customers worldwide with its traditional layout, curvaceous two door coupé body and a powerful six cylinder engine. This lovely example has been with the current vendor for the last 11 years and was owned by the Aston Martin Club Secretary (Diane Howe) prior to his ownership. Needless to say, the car presents in very good order with a history file that can only be described as exhaustive. A rare manual model, this DB7 looks wonderful in Cheviot Red and contrasting Parchment interior, which shows a delightful patina. A superbly original car that has been owned by true enthusiasts and would be a credit to any collector.
2006 Ferrari F430 Coupe Low mileage with full history Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFEZ5811000149413
Estimate: £60,000 - £70,000
Successor to the Ferrari 360, the F430 was debuted at the 2004 Paris Motor Show and produced up until 2009. Designed by Pininfarina, under the guidance of Frank Stephenson, the body styling of the F430 was revised from its predecessor in order to improve its aerodynamic efficiency. The F430 features a 4.3 litre V8 petrol engine of the “Ferrari-Maserati” F136 family. This new power plant was a significant departure for Ferrari, as all previous Ferrari V8 engines were descendants of the Dino racing program of the 1950s. This fifty-year development cycle came to an end with the entirely new 4.3 litre power plant, the architecture of which is expected to replace the Dino-derived V12 in most other Ferrari cars. Despite a 20% increase in displacement, engine weight grew by only 4 kilogrammes and engine dimensions were decreased, for easier packaging.
The connecting rods, pistons and crankshaft were all entirely new, while the four-valve cylinder head, valves and intake trumpets were copied directly from Formula 1 engines, for ideal volumetric efficiency. With a top speed in excess of 196 mph, the 430 can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds – extremely quick even by today’s standards.
Finished in the desirable colour of Argento Nurburgring this European delivered left-hand drive example has covered under 42,000 km from new (c. 26,000 miles). Its full service history is listed below and the car which is believed to have had only two previous owners is found in excellent condition throughout. Factory fitted options include; ceramic brakes, navigation, Scuderia shields, parking sensors, Ferrari logo on seats, yellow tachometer, CD changer and two keys & master. Provided with an MOT certificate valid until October 2018, original books and tools, this car is offered with a very realistic reserve and not to be missed.
1967 Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV Competizione Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: NO RESERVE
The first of Alfa Romeo’s Bertone-styled coupés - the 1.6-litre Giulia Sprint GT - was launched in 1963. Mechanically the stylish new 2+2 was much the same as the Giulia TI sports saloon, featuring a five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung live rear axle, and disc brakes all round. A 1300 model - the GT Junior - arrived in 1966, and the range was further extended the following year by the launch of the 1750 GTV, the latter powered by a 1,799cc, 118bhp version of Alfa’s classic twin-cam four housed in a four-headlamp version of the existing bodyshell running on 14” - down from 15” - wheels.
A short-lived but nevertheless popular model, the 1750 GTV underwent a minor mechanical and styling revision part way through production before being replaced by the 2000 version in 1972. Driver’s cars par excellence in the Alfa tradition, Bertone’s timelessly elegant Giulia coupés are among the most exciting sporting cars of the 1960’s and today all versions are highly sought after.
A huge amount of money was spent with Alfa Romeo Specialists, Alfaholics, developing this wonderful fast road/ track car. Fitted with a 2.0 Twin spark engine with programmable Omex ignition system running 45mm Webber carburettors on solid mounts, large core race radiator and oil cooler, recently subject to a full top and bottom end engine rebuild; it now develops a huge 190bhp.

1969 Porsche 911T 2.0 Litre coupe Over £20,000 recent expenditure. Matching Numbers Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: 119123429
Estimate: £55,000- £65,000
‘The 911 is the best Porsche ever – all the vices of the old suspension have been eliminate, and the modern offbeat styling should have a much broader appeal than the old bathtub shape. The overhead-cam, air-cooled flat 6-cylinder engine, the 5-speed all-synchro transmission, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are irresistible to anybody who ever felt a flicker of desire for any Porsche in the past.’ – Car & Driver. Porsche’s long-running and much loved 911 sports car first appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show as the ‘901’, but shortly after production proper commenced in 1964 had become the ‘911’ following Peugeot’s complaints about the use of ‘0’ model numbers. The preceding Type 356’s rear-engined layout was retained but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356’s VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche’s single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six engine displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3.0 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. In 1967 the 911T (Touring) was introduced as a new base model, initially with the 2.0-litre engine in 110bhp form before gaining the 2.2-litre unit along with the rest of the range in 1969, by which time the 911’s wheelbase had been extended by 57mm to tame the sometimes wayward handling. Such was the 911’s success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them, a state of affairs that led to a substantial proportion being manufactured by coachbuilder Karmann at its Osnabrück factory. Sympathetically restored over 2016 and 2017 back to its original Porsche specification of sand beige with black leatherette basket weave interior it is presented in excellent overall condition. A Californian car until 2015, the engine has also been subject to much work, including a top end rebuild and a new oil pump. Complete with Porsche certificate of authenticity confirming matching numbers and recent work totally over £20,000 it is MoT’d until January 2016.
1952 MG TD Five Decade Single Family Ownership Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TD12608
Estimate: £15,000 – £20,000
The 1950 MG TD combined the TC’s drivetrain, a modified hypoid-geared rear axle, the MG Y-Type chassis, a familiar T-Type style body and independent suspension using coil springs from the MG Y-Type Saloon. Also new; the rack and pinion steering, smaller 15-inch disc type road wheels, a left hand drive option and standard equipment bumpers with over-riders. The car was five inches wider with a track of 50 inches. In 1950, the TD Mk. II was introduced alongside the standard car, featuring a more highly tuned engine with 8.0:1 compression ratio giving 57bhp at 5500rpm. It featured twin fuel pumps, revised dampers, and a higher rear-axle ratio. Nearly 30,000 MG TD’s have been produced, including some 1,700 Mk. II models. When the series ended in 1953, all but 1,656 were exported with 23,488 of them to the United States. An example tested by ‘The Motor’ magazine in 1952 had a top speed of 77mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 18.2 seconds. On offer here today is a wonderful long-term ownership MG TD. Purchased by the vendor’s family in 1970, the car has been very well looked after and comes with an extensive history file that includes bills and receipts for work done on the car by none other than the renowned marque specialists Naylor Brothers. Estimated at a price to sell, this Lot presents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a lovely and very original MG TD.
1960 Mercedes-Benz 190SL - Right Hand Drive Specification Recent £130,000+ restoration by marque specialist Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 121040-20018002
Estimate: £130,000 - £150,000
During the 50’s, when Mercedes-Benz were the dominant force in top-a motor sport, the undisputed flagship of the firm’s production car range was the stunning 300SL sports car. Highly desirable as it was, it was also financially out of the reach of most enthusiasts. Keen to capitalise on the 300SL’s numerous competition successes, and find a foothold in the increasingly lucrative sports car market, Mercedes-Benz introduced its smaller stablemate, the equally beautifully engineered 190SL. The 190SL was sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300SL, similar not just in terms of styling, engineering and detailing, but also sharing fully independent suspension, double wishbone suspension at the front and swing axles at the rear. The 190SL was powered by a new, slightly over square 1.9 litre straight-four SOHC engine that developed 120bhp with twin-choke dual Solex carburettors, the four-cylinder engine block was based on the six-cylinder engine of the 300 SL.
Teamed with a four-speed manual gearbox, this endowed the sleek aerodynamic and comparatively light 190SL that boasted a top speed of 115mph and a respectable 0-60 time of 13.0 seconds. This simply stunning Right Hand Drive 190SL was first delivered new to Asia in 1960, finding its way to the UK in the 1970’s. The SL has just benefited from a hugely detailed rebuild to the tune of over £130,000 by a highly respected specialist, with much attention given to the mechanicals, bodywork and trim, and is now presented in exceptional condition in all respects.
Presented in the definitive colour scheme of DB180 silver with a red leather interior, and correct in every detail, this 190SL is a fantastic opportunity to own a genuine RHD car that is growing in status, popularity and value. The SL is supplied with a thick history file detailing works completed, with previous invoices and ownership history. For those seeking a genuine investment quality RHD 190SL, we believe this fantastic example merits close inspection.
2005 Corvette by Riggins Engineering Registration Number: EU taxes paid
Chassis Number: TBC
Estimate: £80,000 – £100,000
For the C6 Corvette GM wanted to focus more upon refining the C5 than trying to redesign it. However, this did not prevent GM from trying to sell the C6 as being “all new” even though it was not. The press immediately saw through the marketing ploy and GM’s use of “simply changing the part numbers” to further the claim even though a large number of the parts were actually interchangeable between the C5 & C6. Car & Driver, along with Motor Trend quickly noticed the inaccuracy, noting that the C6 was more an “evolution of the C5, instead of a complete redo”. This even lead C&D to term the C6 as the “C5 and 11/16ths”. GM did give the C6 a nice face lift; reducing the exterior body overhangs for a noticeably overall reduction in outward dimension. The front headlights were also redone, deleting the traditional “pop-up” headlights, and thereby shedding a few more parts off of the list that could cause quality problems. Beyond that, the majority of the C6 difference focused upon a concerted effort to upgrade the interior quality. Some are quick to point to a change in wheelbase between the C5 and C6, but here again it was smoke and mirrors.
The change was necessitated by the use of a different automatic transmission which resulted in the rear linkage points being relocated; thus presenting a “longer” wheelbase. However, many people have studied the change and determined that it actually did nothing to alter the suspension geometry from the C5 and thus the “smoke & mirrors” idea that it was an “all new” geometry Interestingly, the C7 has returned to a “shorter” wheelbase more akin to the C5. If one were to Photoshop the C5, C6, and C7’s basic chassis’ frame to all be one color, they would look the same. So there was far more than just the front engine and rear transmission design of the C5 that was still very much present underneath the C6’s skin.
This fantastic race prepared example on offer has been built to specification by Riggins Engineering with no expense spared. The Corvette has campaigned in many international championships. Notably the Pironi championship and the V de V Championship where it had many competitive seasons as well as a podium finishes. Now looked after by motor racing specialist in the UK and Fitted with a 7 litre injected Chevrolet V-8 engine by the renown racing engineer Ted Wenz at Savannah race engineering. A Ford 9â€? quick change rear end and 5 speed gearbox are also fitted making this example one of the most competitive available, not a surprise then it set the GT lap record at Paul Ricard with Nigel Greensall at the wheel. A fantastic opportunity ready for a new custodian.
1976 Lamborghini Urraco Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £60,000 - £70,000
A ‘small’ Lamborghini intended to compete with rivals such as Ferrari’s Dino 308 and Porsche’s 911 in an important market sector, the Urraco was announced in 1970, with deliveries commencing in 1972. The Miura’s basic mechanical layout was adopted for the Urraco (the name means ‘young bull’) but in place of the former’s transversely mounted 4.0-litre V12 there was a 2.5-litre V8. The latter was unusual at the time in employing toothed rubber belts to drive its single overhead camshafts but despite its simpler specification produced a highly respectable 220bhp at 7,500rpm. Styled by Bertone, the unitary construction Urraco employed McPherson strut suspension all round and despite a wheelbase 9cm shorter than the Miura’s was roomy enough to accommodate a 2+2 cockpit. Brisk acceleration and a top speed of 143mph (230km/h) were complemented by leech-like roadholding and a comfortable ride. After 520 cars had been built, way below Lamborghini’s expectations, the Urraco P250 was superseded in 1974 by the P300. As its designation suggests, the P300 was powered by a 3.0-litre version of the V8 engine, which in addition to the capacity increase now boasted twin overhead camshafts and produced 250bhp - 265 horsepower from 1976 – which was good enough for a top speed of around 160mph. At the same time the transmission and suspension were improved, and the dashboard layout revised. Despite its basic soundness, superior performance and numerous improvements, this latest version of the Urraco still failed to sell in significant numbers and when production ceased in 1978 only 205 P300s had been made. This delightful left hand drive example of the Urraco is finished in the unusual colour combination of black over black. UK registered and with a current MoT it offers exceptional value for money.
2003 Noble M12 GTO-3 Supplied with invoices for c. £25,000 covering maintenance and upgrade works Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SA9M12RK113164
Estimate: £32,000 - £38,000
Originally involved in the design and development of the Ultima Mk1,2 & 3 and the Ascari FGT, it’s no surprise that Lee Noble wanted to set up his own car company and so in 1999 he formed the Leicester based sports car manufacturer Noble Automotive Ltd, known as Noble. After the early low production M10 convertible, he released the M12 sports car in 2000. Its space-frame chassis, composite body offered curvaceous and aggressive styling and the 2.5 litre twin-turbo midengine with rear wheel drive offered performance to boot. In 2002 the ‘volume’ was turned up with the introduction of the M12 GTO-3, now featuring a 3 litre version of the V6 Duratec and with a remapped ECU the GTO-3 produced a staggering 352bhp, which propelled this British giant killer to a sub 4sec 0-60mph and onto 170mph, offering both excellent on road characteristics or the ability to be a tuned track weapon. Delivered new in March 2003 by specialist Williams Automobiles Ltd. of Bristol, this stunning Noble M12 GTO-3 is believed to be 1 of only 116 cars produced. Finished in unblemished Titanium Silver with contrasting black / grey alcantara and leather interior, and supplied new with the optional and rare six-piece luggage set, our M12 has clearly been loved and cherished by its owners over the years. Further to the initial purchase price of £53,725, the history file shows invoices for a further £25,000, covering ongoing maintenance and servicing, also upgrades such as a baffled sump, uprated valve springs and the fitting of a Quaife Limited Slip Differential. A review of the dealer-issued wallet shows the following mileage intervals for servicing: PDI (59 miles), 992, 5146, 12489, 13888, 16773, 21247, 23166, 35239 and 42500 miles (in December 2017), with works being carried out via Noble-approved servicing agents. The GTO is presented exceptionally well, with the refurbished 18” alloy wheels giving the final visual touch to complement the intoxicating sound and supercar styling. Offered with a complete book pack, 2 keys, and a clear HPI report, this Noble M12 GT0 3 is a perfect example of how British engineering and ingenuity can take on and comprehensively beat its European contemporaries.
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.
1984 Ferrari 512BBI The Last Right Hand Drive example built Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: 50357 Estimate: £225,000- £295,000
Having reasserted itself at the top of the supercar hierarchy with the first ‘Boxer’ - the 365 GTB/4 BB - Ferrari went one better with its successor, the 512 BB. 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. The increase in engine size from the original Boxer’s 4.4 litres was made not so much with increased power in mind but to enable the 512 BB to meet increasingly stringent emissions targets without loss of performance.
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: an air-dam spoiler beneath the nose, brake-cooling NACA ducts ahead of the rear wheel arches, four rear lights instead of six and revised air intake boxes, while slightly fatter rear tyres meant that the width of the 512’s rear grew by just over 25mm. The running gear likewise came in for only minor revision, gaining stiffer springs/anti-roll bars and altered damping rates, 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 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 was felt to be entirely realistic. The fact that this was down 4mph on the Lamborghini Countach’s ‘fastest ever’ maximum was considered unimportant. ‘That’s because, taken on balance, the Ferrari 512 Boxer wins a more important award, as the best all-round sports and GT car we’ve tested,’ enthused the highly respected American motoring magazine. ‘If we had to pin the reasons down to one it would have to be that the Ferrari doesn’t forget the driver. The Boxer has it all, the speed, the handling, the lovely shape, the well done cockpit and, most important of all, a reputation for reliability.’
In 1981 the model was updated with Bosch fuel injection, becoming the 512 BBi. 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 Ferrariâ€™s contemporary Formula 1 unit, as well as being both lighter and faster than the legendary Daytona, the 512 BBi 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. First delivered on 1st August 1984, this particular Boxer was the last ever UK Right Hand Drive car. It was supplied by Strattons of Wilmslow. It covered 874 miles that month and was first serviced on the 30/08/84. Serviced by Maranello and DK engineering in 85, 86 and 87, it was sold to Didie-Piron in 1989 before being purchased and sold by Talacrest in 1990.
The car then changed hands to a Mr Dalby of London before the car was sold to the renowned UK collector in 1998. Changing hands again the car was sold to Mr Sparks of Blockbuster Entertainment who had the car maintained by a variety of specialists. The car changed hands again in 2007 to another prominent collector at this time the car had covered 35,322 miles. The car was maintained by DK engineering during his care. Purchased by the current world renowned collector the car has been maintained again by DK engineering and is now being offered for sale publically for the first time. The last Boxer ever to be registered on UK roads this is certainly a car for the cognoscenti.
1961 Borgward Isabella TS Coupe Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 369995
Estimate: £18,000 - £25,000
Initially coming from South Africa this Isabella TS is a rare RHD version of what is affectionally called the most beautiful German coupe of the 1960s. Having spend some time in one of the most significant German collections, the car is only for sale, as the vendor could aquire a LHD version, indeed more suitable to drive on the continent. Described as to be in excellent condition with a total milage of under 100000 kms, the car presents itself in white with red and white interior. Supplied with german historic registration documents, and TÜV to august 2019, it surely represents a superb opportunity for Borgward enthusiasts and is sensibly reserved too. Not to be missed.
1987 BMW E30 M3 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WBSAK050301891900
Estimate: £40,000 - £45,000
The M3 debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1985 with deliveries of this exclusively left-hand drive model commencing a little over one year later. Magazine road tests were soon reporting top speeds of circa 140mph and a 0-60mph time of around 7 seconds, highly respectable figures even by today’s standards. Although it looked pretty much like a standard E30 3-Series from a distance, the M3 shared only the bonnet with its less-exotic sibling. The most obvious difference was the wider front and rear wings while only the most observant would have noticed the more steeply raked rear window and raised boot, changes made in the interests of aerodynamic efficiency. Necessary chassis improvements included lowered and stiffened suspension, wider wheels, five-stud hubs, ventilated front brake discs, ABS and a limited-slip differential as standard. The gearbox was a five-speed close-ratio Getrag. This immaculate example has only covered 59,000 miles and is backed up by a fully documented service history right from the early days of its life. Originally supplied new in Germany, it was bought by a collector who resided in Japan and was taken there in its first year of life to be part of a prestigious private collection. There the car was lovingly cared for and as a result of the warm climate and salt free roads, this example is totally rust-free and accident-free. Imported into the UK in 2017 the car was given a thorough inspection and had a fluid / oil service carried out along with the complete interior being fully re-trimmed to give it a fresh feel. The already amazing paintwork was professionally detailed and enhanced to give it factory fresh presence. Optional extras: Diamant Schwarz paint Recaro LS leather sports seats (very rare option) Air conditioning Central locking Tilt & slide sunroof electric Electric windows Sunblind Heated seats On-board computer ll with remote control Roof antenna Bilstein Suspension 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.
1955 Austin Healey 100 M specification Ex-Sorn Castle Collection Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: BN1/224917-M
Estimate: £45,000 - £55,000
These were cars that an upper middle-class owner could drive to work and rally or race on the weekends. But they weren’t cheap. Next came the Nash-Healey sports car. But despite modestly priced-running gear from the American independent manufacturer, the chassis, suspension and coachwork still resulted in a car that cost more than $4,000. Healey was well aware that he needed a car that could be built in larger numbers and sold at a lower price in the rapidly emerging sports car market in the new world. MG and Jaguar were selling the bulk of their production to North America and Triumph was readying the TR2. Using the four-cylinder 2.6 litre Austin A-90 engine and transmission, as well as other components from the parts bin of newly-formed BMC (a merger of the Austin and Nuffield/Morris companies), Healey produced a sleek and beautiful prototype styled by Gerry Coker. Healey showed his “Healey Hundred” at the 1952 ] Earls Court Motor Show in the UK and caught the eye of BMC supreme Leonard Lord.
Again, Healey’s timing was perfect. Lord selected his car over a new MG prototype, thus delaying the replacement of the old-fashioned MG TD, which was also in the BMC family. When it went on sale in 1953, the beautiful Austin-Healey 100 cost less than $3,000 in the United States and would top 100mph. Those first cars, designated BN1, used the 90 bhp Austin engine, a three-speed transmission with overdrive and were happily received in the United States, which took most of the 10,688 cars produced. The beautiful BN1 Austin-Healey 100 on offer was built in March 1955 and was delivered through Dove Limited, Croydon London with a heater and wire wheels. The chain of ownership can be traced back to Mr Van Santen who owned the car in Middlesex from 1961 to 1970. The car changes hands twice in two years before a December 1973 Motorsport Magazine highlights the car for sale. Detailed letters dating January 1974 show correspondence between the new owner
and the Healey owners Club. Correspondence in the cars file confirms it underwent a detailed restoration at this time. The car changed hands again in 1979 to 1989, where it was the property of Mr McIntyre ( A Director of the Royal Automobile Club) and formed part of the well regarded Sorn Castle Collection. In 1989 the car was sold to Mr Summers who owned the car until 1991. Denis Welch carried out an engine overhaul at this time. The car moves to Cumbria in 1992 where it remained the property of a Mr Coulthard until changing hands to the present keeper in 2000. In 2005 the car underwent its second restoration by Colin Groom of Newton Abbot, Devon. Details are in the file. Between 2002 and 2009 ÂŁ30,000 was spent on a variety of works, both mechanical and to the body. With over ÂŁ5,000 spent with Molesey Coach trimmers re-trimming the vehicle to a very high standard indeed. With its M specification upgrades, and larger radiator this car has been caressed by its fastidious owner to insure it has become an excellent example mechanically- performing as well in London traffic as it does on a country lane this well sorted example, with a large history file would be perfect for continental tours and events.
1959 MG Milano One of Three Produced Registration Number: N/A
Chassis Number: 0001
Estimate: £30,000 - £40,000
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.
1997 Honda NSX UK delivered with full Honda Service History from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £30,000 - £40,000
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 Kaiser Silver Metallic with contrasting Black Leather, this beautiful example was supplied new in 1997 to its first UK owner, specified with the more desirable manual gearbox. In the intervening years the NSX has been serviced regularly by Honda main dealers, with a total of twenty services recorded, the last being in the last 1000 miles by Honda in Surrey. This is a lovely example of what is now regarded as a true modern classic, with good history and a bright future in the market.
1952 MG TD Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 14228
Estimate: £21,000 - £25,000
The 1950 MG TD combined the TC’s drivetrain, a modified hypoid-geared rear axle, the MG Y-Type chassis, a familiar T-Type style body and independent suspension using coil springs from the MG Y-Type Saloon. Also new; the rack and pinion steering, smaller 15-inch disc type road wheels, a left hand drive option and standard equipment bumpers with over-riders. The car was five inches wider with a track of 50 inches. In 1950, the TD Mk. II was introduced alongside the standard car, featuring a more highly tuned engine with 8.0:1 compression ratio giving 57bhp at 5500rpm. It featured twin fuel pumps, revised dampers, and a higher rear-axle ratio. Nearly 30,000 MG TD’s have been produced, including some 1,700 Mk. II models. When the series ended in 1953, all but 1,656 were exported with 23,488 of them to the United States.

This beautiful matching numbers MG TD, finished in Ivory with a Cognac Leather interior, is presented in excellent condition in all respects, and shows 70,000 miles recorded from new. Offered with all UK taxes paid, this is a highly enjoyable car for summer driving fun!
1960 Austin Healey 3000 Mk1 Restored by Austin Healey Specialists JME Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: H-BN7-L/9614
Estimate: £40,000 – £50,000
The enlargement of its C-Series six-cylinder engine to 2,912cc, and the adoption of Girling front disc brakes, differentiated the new-for-1959 Austin-Healey 3000 from the preceding 100/6. In 3000 form the rugged Austin six delivered 124bhp at 4,600rpm, good enough for a top speed (in overdrive) of 114mph. Otherwise, the car remained much as the 100/6, though the more-powerful disc brakes were a welcome improvement. The original 3000 was built from March 1959 to March 1961 as models BN7 Mark I (2-seater) and BT7 Mark I (2+2 version), becoming known as the Mark I after the Mark II was released. Robust and tuneable, in its time the Big Healey was immensely popular with privateer racers and ralliers. Today, 40 years after the end of production, Healey 3000s continue to be extensively campaigned in historic motorsport, both in tarmac events and on the rough stuff. Replicas of the works rally cars are among the most sought-after variants, and an extensive cottage industry of recognised specialists exists to cater for the demand for Austin-Healey parts, servicing and competition preparation.
This very well-sorted 3000 Mk1 presents extremely well, having enjoyed a thorough older restoration by leading marque specialist JME Healey, to the tune of £50,000. The work was highly detailed, and well documented, covering all major mechanical components, body, paint and trim. In previous ownership this lovely Healey has wanted for nothing. In 2014 the engine benefited from a rebuild by Healey specialists Orchard Restorations, a high lift camshaft was fitted, and the transmission overhauled by specialist Hardy Engineering. In the previous year the whole vehicle was repainted in the correct shade of Healey Blue. Used sparingly by the current vendor the Healey has been maintained meticulously and comes with an Mot until August 2018.
Finished in a beautiful combination of Healey Blue with contrasting navy leather, PSL 103 is a rare 2 seater BN7 model, of which only 2,825 were produced, compared with 10,825 for the 4 seater BT7. Offered with UK V5, evidence of restoration and maintenance work, a sheaf of MoTs, and heritage certificate, this is a highly capable sportscar which is very much on the button. Estimate 40,000 â€“ 50,000
1965 Lotus Elan S1 26R Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £65,000- £75,000
Very few small-capacity Gran Turismo cars of the 1960s come even close to matching the on-track charisma of the purebred little Lotus 26R. British constructor Colin Chapman’s Lotus company was at that time riding the absolute crest of a wave in terms of trend-setting fame, fortune and competition success. During the 1963 Formula 1 racing season Chapman’s factory team, Team Lotus, had utterly dominated the Grand Prix world. Their number one driver was the legendary Jim Clark. He had just won a record seven World Championship-qualifying Grand Prix races in the single season to clinch not only the Drivers’ World Championship title for himself but also the Formula 1 Constructors’ World Championship crown for Lotus itself.
The year had also seen him and his Lotus-powered-by-Ford turn the American speedway racing establishment upside down, by dominating the pace in the Indianapolis 500-Miles and then shining again in his rear-engined V8 car at Trenton and Milwaukee.
It was against this background that Colin Chapman had introduced his typically trend-setting, typically ingenious Lotus Elan. As a production sports car it used a new design of fabricated sheet steel skinned backbone chassis, over which the incredibly neat and compact glassfibre bodyshell sat like a saddle. Combine this structure’s light weight with a magnificent new 1594cc Ford-based 4-cylinder engine, super-tuned by addition of a twin-overhead camshaft Lotus cylinder head, and a sports car had been born which combined tremendous acceleration and disc-braking ability with stupendous road holding power. The Type 26R was the further-lightened, further-tuned, purebred road-racing version of this legendary design.
An original Series 1 Lotus Elan roadster converted to 26R specification for historic racing with new FIA Historic Technical Passport for GTS 10 valid until 2025. The car was originally built by Simon Hadfield before being exported to Sweden. Whilst there, it won the Nordics pre 1966 historic championship three times with two different drivers and was substantially rebuilt by well known Lotus specialist Bennets AB with parts from Tony Thompson Racing. These include a lightweight body, 26R chassis, straight cut close ratio gearbox, LSD, lightweight hubs, uprated driveshafts. It has a very strong 1588cc engine from twin cam specialist Roger Svensson producing approx 170bhp. It is currently on 13 inch magnesium alloys with Dunlop L section tyres. Since being repatriated to the UK, it has only competed in two races at the Masters Historic Festival at Brands one on the Indy circuit and one on the GP circuit where despite an unfamiliar driver, it beat many well established Elan teams. Beautiful condition inside and out and on the button and ready to go for 2017. Eligible for a huge number of race championships including Masters, GT & Sports Car Cup, Peter Auto and Legendary Circuits as well as events like the Spa 6 Hours, Silverstone Classic, Zandvoort Historic Grand Prix, Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix, Angouleme Circuit des Remparts etc etc A competitive car and potential class winner in the right hands in GTS 10.
1962 Jaguar E-type Series 1 3.8 Fixed Head Coupe Aluminium Dashboard Model Original Right hand drive Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 860911
Estimate: £70,000 – £90,000
Introduced in 3.8-litre form in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. Its design owed much to that of the racing D-Type: a monocoque tub forming the main structure while a tubular space frame extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, ‘S’ unit first offered as an option on the XK150. An optimistic 265bhp was claimed, but whatever the installed horsepower, the E-Type’s performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 500lb (227kg) 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. The Jaguar 3.8 fixed head coupe is probably one of the most desirable ‘E’ types and this superb example has one of the best specifications one could wish for.
Chassis number 860911 rolled off the production line in October 1962. Presented in its original specification, old English white over a light blue interior and fitted with its original 3.8 litre motor and 4 speed moss gearbox. In fantastic condition this example has been subject to much restoration work throughout recent years with well over £40,000 being spent. The work included a full bare metal re spray as well as maintenance work to the engine and interior. The comprehensive history file that accompanies the car includes many invoices of work carried out as well as photos of the restoration. Also included are many Mot test certificates, dating back to 1979 where the odometer reading was 43,000 miles. Every Mot from 1991 to 2018 is documented and suggests the current mileage reading of 54,750 to be genuine.
Offered with its original registration number ‘696 VC’, UK registration document and comprehensive history file this wonderful early E-type is one of few Right-hand Drive ‘Ali dash’ examples. The engine is strong and the panels and body present very well. Ready to be used in the coming summer months.
Ferrari 328GTS Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFXA20AxG0061559
Estimate: £45,000 – £55,000
Debuted at the 1985 Frankfurt Auto Show, the Ferrari 328 was the second model in Ferrari’s long and popular line of mid-engine V8 sports cars, continuing through the upcoming 488 GTB. The 328 was the replacement to the popular 308 and featured notable performance and design advancements over the outgoing model. The mid-mounted V8 engine was increased from 3.0 to 3.2 liters and the iconic Leonardo Fioravanti-designed body was updated for a smoother, more contemporary appearance with integrated bumpers and revised cooling ducts, resulting in a more cohesive and streamlined profile. Pininfarina built two variants of this mid-engine sportscar, the Gran Turismo Berlinetta Coupe and the Gran Turismo Spider, featuring a removable Targa top. While performance of the GTS was not the same as the GTB, it offered an exhilarating open-air driving experience, and afforded the driver and their fortunate passenger unbridled access to the unmistakable sound of the dry-sump Ferrari V8. In the short four year run of the 328, 6,068 examples were produced, a great success which, combined with the success and popularity of the 308, ensured the position of the mid-engine V8 in Ferrari’s permanent stable. In the summer of 1987, this particular 328 GTS left Ferrari’s Maranello factory finished in the timeless combination of Ferrari’s iconic Rosso Corsa paint over a fine Nero black Leather interior. The car on offer has had some minor modifications to UK specification. There are many invoices that accompany the car from previous work carried out. With three services since being in the Uk and reported to drive very well the 328gts in a rare colour combination is offered with UK registration document and valid Mot test certificate.
