(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in writing to the Seller decline to sell the Lot, and the Seller shall be liable to Coys as though the Seller had withdrawn the lot from sale without Coys consent.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. Coys may in its discretion withhold remittance of the Net Sale Proceeds to the Seller until such time as the Seller has deposited with Coys the V5 registration document in the case of a UK registered vehicle or, in the case of an unregistered, or non-UK registered vehicle, the appropriate documents of title (ownership) relevant and appropriate to the country of registration of the vehicle, and any other documentation relating to the vehicle in the Seller’s possession or control which he agreed with Coys to supply. 21. BUYER’S DEFAULT 21.1 In the event that the Purchase Price is not duly paid in accordance with Condition 20.1, Coys may hold the Buyer in default and shall as against the Buyer (a “Defaulting Buyer”) have the following rights, in addition to those set out in Condition 21.4 below: (a) As agent for the Seller, to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 5% per annum above the Bank of England base rate on so much of the Purchase Price as remains due and unpaid; (b) To retain any Lot sold to the same Buyer at the same or any other Auction and to release it only after payment of the total amount due; (c) To reject or disregard any bid or bids made by or on behalf of the Defaulting Buyer at any future auction or to require payment of a deposit before any future bid made by or on behalf of that Buyer; (d) To apply any money due or to become due to the Defaulting Buyer in or towards settlement of the total amount due and to exercise a charge on any property of the Defaulting Buyer which is in Coys’ possession for any purpose. 21.2. 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
and any other sums that the Buyer shall be liable to pay Coys; (b) To cancel the sale of that or any other Lot sold to the Defaulting Buyer at the same or any other auction notwithstanding the total amount due in respect of such other Lot shall have been paid; (c) To re-sell the Lot or cause it to be resold by public auction or private sale. 21.3. If the Buyer fails or refuses to pay the Purchase Price in full within 35 days of the Auction, Coys will notify the Seller who may instruct Coys as to the appropriate course of action, including (where permitted under Clause 21.2) but not limited to one or more of the courses of action set out in Condition 21.4 below. 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. In the absence of any written instructions from the Seller to Coys within 14 days of Coys’ notice to the Seller served in accordance with Condition 21.3 above then Coys shall in its sole discretion be entitled to do any of the following in its capacity as the Seller’s agent and with the Seller’s full authority:(a) To agree terms for the payment of the Purchase Price with the Buyer; (b) To remove, store and insure the Lot at the expense of the Buyer; (c) To settle claims and/or proceedings made by or against the Buyer on such terms as Coys shall at its absolute discretion think fit; (d) To take such steps as Coys shall at its absolute discretion consider necessary to collect the monies due from the Buyer; (e) Where appropriate to rescind and/or terminate the sale and in its sole discretion: (i) Return the Lot to the Seller, and distribute any monies received to the Buyer in accordance with Conditions 21.5 and/or 21.6; (ii) Offer the Lot for re-sale, by Auction or private treaty, with or without Reserve; (iii) Purchase the Lot itself at the Hammer Price or such other price as may be agreed with the Seller, in which case property in the Lot shall pass to Coys and Coys shall remit the Hammer Price to the Seller within fourteen days of its election less any sums payable pursuant to Condition 21.5 below; (f) To appoint a solicitor and/or other agent to pursue any of the courses of action referred to in sub-paragraphs (a) to (e) above and the Seller authorises Coys to take any of the courses referred to in this Condition 21.4, including the issue and prosecution of proceedings on the Seller’s behalf and in the Seller’s name. 21.5. In the event that the sale contract for the Lot is rescinded because of the Buyer’s default aforesaid, whether as a result of the Seller’s instruction or Coys’ action taken under Condition 21.4, the Seller shall nonetheless (and without prejudice to any claim that he may have against the Buyer) be liable to pay to Coys the following sums: (a) Legal or other costs on an indemnity basis reasonably incurred by Coys in connection with such steps; and (b) Expenses; (c) The Seller’s Commission, by way of remuneration for the services performed by Coys down to the date of rescission, and not by way of penalty or liquidated damages. 21.6. Any monies recovered by and paid to Coys in consequence of Coys taking one or more of the steps referred to in Condition 21.4 against a Defaulting Buyer, or any of the Purchase Price as shall have been paid by the Defaulting Buyer, shall be applied to the payment of:(a) Legal or other costs reasonably incurred by Coys in connection with such steps; and then (b) Expenses; and then (c) The Seller’s Commission, by way of remuneration for the services performed by Coys down to the date of recovery, and not by way of penalty or liquidated damages. (d) Any balance remaining shall be apportioned pro rata as between the Buyer’s Premium, and any payable sums to the Seller; and then (e) Any balance thereafter to the Buyer. 21.7 In the event that any monies recovered do not cover the sums set out at Conditions 21.6(a)
to (c), any such shortfall shall be made good by the Seller to Coys on demand. 22. REMOVAL OF PURCHASES 22.1. The Buyer shall, at his own expense, remove the Lot purchased not later than the day and time specified in the “General Information” section of the Catalogue but not before payment in full to Coys of the Purchase Price whether in respect of this or any other Lot. 22.2. The Buyer shall be responsible for all removals, storage, insurance and other charges on any Lot not taken away at the day and time specified in Condition 22.1 above. 22.3. If the Lot is not collected by the Buyer within 2 days of the Auction, whether or not the Purchase Price has been paid, and whether or not the Buyer is consequently entitled to collect the Lot, Coys shall remove, store (either at Coys’ premises or elsewhere) and insure the Lot at the expense of the Buyer and only release the Lot after payment of the total amount due. 22.4. If the Buyer fails to collect the Lot within 14 days of the Auction, Coys shall notify the Seller who shall at his sole discretion elect to: (a) Cancel the sale of the Lot and take back possession of the Lot; or (b) Re-sell the Lot or cause it to be re-sold by public auction or private sale; or (c) Continue to remove, store and insure the Lot at his expense, but subject to being entitled to recoupment of such expenses from the Buyer, and subject to being entitled to elect (a) or (b) at any time thereafter. 22.5 In the event that the sale contract is cancelled, or the Lot is re-sold, in accordance with Condition 22.4 above, the same provisions shall apply as under Condition 21.6 above, “Buyer’s Default”, as regards any of the Purchase Price paid to the date of that cancellation or re-sale. 23. RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOTS PURCHASED 23.1. Subject to the Seller’s compliance with Condition 7.1(d), it shall be the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that any Motor Vehicle purchased at Auction complies with the appropriate statute or regulation for driving, using or transporting it and for ensuring that any necessary test certificate is in force.

1969 Lotus Europa S2 Registration Number: EU taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 54/1496
Estimate: €25,000 – €35,000
In the 1960s, Lotus won more F1 World Championships than any other manufacturer. They also produced the Europa a stunning and affordable road going coupe. Designed and built around the lightweight alloy Renault 16 engine the mid engined coupe, had a drag coefficient of only 0.3, handled and performed superbly, and gave the customer a chance to experience race car handling on the road. The ‘Europa’ concept originated during 1963 with drawings by Ron Hickman, then director of Lotus Engineering. The Europa S2, or Type 54, was introduced in April 1968. It offered a number of refinements from its predecessors including electric windows, fully adjustable seats, a new interior, and a polished wooden fascia for the dashboard. Dispatched from the Lotus factory in march 1969 to the USA’s eastern distributor. The Europa has seen a comprehensive restoration completed in 2016 and has bills and receipts to show work carried out. Presented in a stunning colour combination and fantastic allround condition the Europa has European taxes paid and is ready to be used by a new custodian. Offered with a Lotus certificate of provenance and a substantial history file.
1971 Triumph Stag Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: LE1388L
Estimate: €16,000 - €21,000
Stylish, fast and practical, the Stag began life as a Triumph 2000-based styling exercise by Italian carrossier Giovanni Michelotti. A 2+2 convertible, Michelotti’s design featured a quad-lamp grille and sculpted front and rear ends, the latter destined to appear on many future Triumphs. By the time production commenced in 1970, the 2000’s six-cylinder engine had been replaced by a 3.0-litre V8 based on an overhead-camshaft four already being produced by Triumph for SAAB. A padded, ‘T’-shaped roll bar bracing the door pillars and windscreen was one of the Stag’s most distinctive features, and the model could be had in soft-top, hardtop, or soft-withhardtop forms. This early Mark I Triumph Stag, fitted with the rare and desirable manual gearbox, was delivered new in 1971 and has covered a very sensible 93,000 miles since. The Stag has benefitted from previous restoration work to the bodywork, whilst the original black interior is nicely preserved. Finished in Spruce Green with a matching and rare factory hardtop, we understand the Stag’s 3 litre V8 runs well, and the car drives very nicely. Offered with all EU taxes paid, this stylish yet practical GT is the perfect car for summer driving.
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.
1974 Porsche 911 S Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 9114100771
Estimate: €45,000 - €50,000
After 1973, it was decided that the 2.4 litre wasn’t really fast enough for the 911, with the impending American emissions standards threatening to slow the model down to the point that ordinary Cadillacs would smoke its droopy tail. The solution: to take the 2.7 litre engine developed for the Carrera RS, detune it a bit, and make it standard across the board. This made the 911 a very usable sports car for all driving conditions. It was only natural that capacity for mainstream production should be increased to 2,687cc, which gave a good increase in torque to match the 150bhp of the 911 2.7 Coupe. Impact bumpers were now required to satisfy American law and production ran from 1974 to 1977. Returning back to Europe from Japan, this very nice Porsche 911 in desirable S specification comes with many extras such as; original Fuchs wheels, 5 speed gearbox and air-conditioning, to name a few. The car was recently lavished with a service to renew all the joints and rubbers at a cost of €2,700. With an odometer reading circa 84,000km and believed to be genuine, this 911 S coupe, so elegantly finished in silver with black leather interior, is sure to please its next 911 enthusiast.
1958 Volkswagen Panel Van - Offered with No Reserve Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 329308
Estimate: €8,000 - €13,00 NO RESERVE The early versions of the T1 until 1955 were often called the “Barndoor” (retrospectively called T1a since the 1990s), owing to the enormous rear engine cover, while the later versions with a slightly modified body (the roofline above the windshield is extended), smaller engine bay, and 15” road wheels instead of the original 16” ones are nowadays called the T1b (again, only called this since the 1990s, based on VW’s retrospective T1,2,3,4 etc. naming system.). From the 1964 model year, when the rear door was made wider (same as on the bay-window or T2), the vehicle could be referred to as the T1c. 1964 also saw the introduction of an optional sliding door for the passenger/cargo area instead of the outwardly hinged doors typical of cargo vans. This early sought after T1 split screen Panel Van was first delivered in 1958 to the US, residing in sunny California for much of its life. Although solid, the van would benefit from either a full restoration or mechanical refurbishment whilst maintaining its unique patina. Offered with US title and all EU taxes paid, this would make a fantastic project for the VW enthusiast.

Nissan 240RS “Group B” road registered rally car. Chassis #179 of 200 built, of which only 50 were right hand drive Registration Number: NA
Chassis Number: BS110 000179
Estimate: €60,000 – €70,000
This example is a very rare right hand drive example. First registered on the 1st April 1985 to Driver Mr Dan Daly and entered into Tour of Ireland 1985. The Nissan comes with its original registration papers and plates as well as recent service and dyno reports. The full history is known and has been documented in previous motoring magazine articles as well as being shown in photos from previous rally’s. A Genuine factory competition car prepped by Team Nissan Europe (UK). With three registered keepers the 240RS is showing 14,500km and comes equipped with new tyres, a hi-torque starter motor and Rebuilt cylinder head. Also included is the competition manual and workshop manual with special tools. Eligible for Goodwood Group B UK, Rally masters San Marino IT and Eiffel Rally DE.
1993 BMW 850 CSI One of only 1,510 produced Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WBSEG91030CC00188
Estimate: €58,000 - €65,000
Never officially releasing an M8, the CSi was developed as BMW’s top-of the range 8 series competitor to the likes of Mercedes-Benz top of the range SL’s. The CSi was fitted with 70% stiffer springs, BMW M servotronic power steering, limited slip differential with oil cooler and newly developed 5.6 litre and V12 engine. The twelvecylinder engine received an additional 600cc displacement and optimized engine electronics producing a massive 380bhp. Paired with a sophisticated chassis with active rear axle kinematics and a generously sized brake system, this and much more make it a very competitive machine. On offer here today is a wonderful example of one of the mere 1,510 CSi variants produced in its limited production run between 1992 and 1996. Finished in the very desirable and original “Diamond Schwarz Metallic” with “Antharazit Buffalo” leather interior, the car is described to be in exceptional condition. The interior can be described as very chic and is furnished with wood inlays. With most 850’s having covered huge mileage, generally being enjoyed up and down the Autobahn, the modest 108,503km (less than 68,000 miles) recorded on this particular example is very interesting indeed.

1965 Alfa-Romeo Giulia 1600 Subject of an extensive mechanical and bare-metal restoration in 2011 Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: AR379851
Estimate: €55,000 - €60,000
Sporting elegant coachwork designed and built by Pininfarina, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider was a huge success and continued virtually unchanged in 1.6-litre Giulia guise when the latter joined the line-up in 1962. Launched at the Monza Autodrome on 27th June that year, the Giulia range was the work of a design team headed by one of the greatest of Italian automobile engineers, Dr Orazio Satta Puliga, who had been responsible for all the post-war Alfa Romeos. The capacity increase from 1,300 to 1,600cc boosted maximum power of Alfa’s classic twin-cam four from 80 to 92bhp and the car’s top speed to 109mph. Reliability was likewise enhanced and the larger engine was noticeably smoother and less fussy. A five-speed gearbox was standard on the Giulia 1600 Spider, which remained in production until 1966. Described by Cars Illustrated as ‘probably one of the most delightful small sports cars which will ever be produced,’ the Giulia Spider is certainly one of the most attractive Alfa Romeos of its day and remains highly regarded now. This beautiful example of the ever appreciating larger engined 1600 Giulia Spider has had only three owners form new and was subject to an extensive mechanical and cosmetic restoration in 2008-2011. The factory 1600cc Normale engine was rebuilt to Veloce specifications and having driven approximately 1,600km over the last year, the car remains in excellent condition throughout. Its last thorough service and inspection was completed 8 months ago. On top of stripping the car to bare metal for its respray, a coating of rust inhibitor was also applied to the underside. Numerous photos documenting the restoration are available on request. The AR00112 coded 1600 engine is correct for the car’s Normale specification and fitted with a pair of Weber carburettors, it was given a complete rebuild in 2010 beyond standard Normale specifications, and is described by the seller to be a ‘strong runner’. This is a very nice matching numbers car supplied with thorough photo documentation of its older restoration.
1964 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 881724
Estimate: €145,000 - €160,000
Introduced in 3.8-litre form in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and a 150 mph top speed. Its design owed much to that of the racing D-Type; a monocoque tub formed 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. The E-Type’s performance did not disappoint. Weighing in at around 500lb less than the XK150, and with aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer’s experience gained with the D-Type, Jaguar created one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. This beautiful example is one of the last 3.8 litre examples produced before jaguar moved to the less desirable 4.2 engines. The later 3.8 examples received a number of revisions and this particular car now has the later gearbox, longer rear axle and movable seats. In recent years this car has undergone a comprehensive restoration brining it to the wonderful condition that it is in today. Invoices for all of the mechanical and cosmetic work can be found in the cars history file, alongside a Classic Data inspection and valuation report. Having been given an excellent 2+ rating and a valuation of €175,000 by Classic Data speaks volumes to the lengths that this cars previous custodians have gone in maintaining the cars originality, and the energy given to bring this car back to its former glory.
1987 BMW E30 M3 German Delivered Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: WB5AK050301891346
Estimate: €45,000 - €50,000
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 German delivered example has always remained in Germany and resultantly is offered with a current TUV as well as previous certificates. In the true nature of its recent fastidious German ownership, the car has had a vast amount of money spent on it to ensure that it is mechanically sound and as fun to drive today as it was the day it left the factory. Owed by its previous owner since 2006, this legendary car from the 80’s has been well looked after and maintained, and is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner. Numerous photos of the car including its underside are available upon request.
1977 Range Rover by Alcom Devices Commissioned for King Juan Carlos of Spain Ca. 3,300 kilometres recorded from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €35,000 - €45,000
This special armoured Range Rover was commissioned by King Juan Carlos in 1977, ordered from Alcom Devices in London. One of the first projects became known as Alcom which made it possible to track him in cars, yachts, helicopters or anywhere else. The radio communication was scrambled to prevent eavesdropping, the bodywork was modified with 10mm bulletproof glass all round, and the front of the car was designed in the shape of a battering ram, to aide escape if required. The interior, by Wood & Pickett of London, was highly luxurious; with leather Recaro seats to the front, a leather bench seat in the rear for bodyguards, and a set of glasses and decanter. A number of buttons managed the communication system, and also the spotlights, television, siren and blue lights. The Range Rover also has a built-in fire extinguishing system and an oxygen cylinder, and even a real smoke bomb cannon with vents on all sides to create a smoke screen. From a Dutch Land Rover collection, the Alcom shows only 3,300 kms from new. Supplied with documentation of its history, this is without doubt a unique opportunity for the serious collector. 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.
1871 Lamborghini Espada Series II Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 8236
Estimate: €140,000 - €160,000
In 1963 Ferruccio Lamborghini took the motoring world by storm by announcing a brand new high performance gran turismo, the 350GTV. In production form this outrageous machine was toned down and sold as the 350GT, this in turn becoming the 400GT. Two years later Lamborghini stunned the public still further with the introduction of the amazing Miura. While the public and competitors alike were still catching their breath the Marzal was unveiled, a flamboyant proposal for a luxury full four seater, incorporating many novel features, including a rear mounted straight six engine. Lamborghini, born under the sign of the bull, hence the charging bull insignia, adopted bull fighting terms for the names of his cars and his new four seater was to be no exception. Espada, as the car was called, is the sword used by the matador to deliver the fatal wound. Lamborghini once again stole the Geneva show in 1968 with the Espada, styled by Marcello Gandini, the genius who heads Bertone’s design studio and whose other designs include the Marzal, Countach, Diablo, Lancia Stratos and Cizeta V16. Despite its incredible styling the car was comparatively conventional, incorporating a pressed steel semi-monocoque built by Marchesi in Modena, into the front of which was placed the 4 litre quad camshaft V12 engine from the 400GT, mated to a 5 speed gearbox. 320bhp was sufficient to propel the car’s four occupants to over 150mph., while they lounged in sumptuous leather upholstery, cooled by air conditioning. The Espada was the fastest full four seater in the world, and even thirty years later few cars come close to matching its towering abilities. Clearly the Espada was far more advanced than its opposition and the final production figure ran to over 1,200 units, proving it to be as popular as it was capable. This stunning example is presented in white with the desirable red leather interior and was the subject of a restoration in the 1980s. The vendor prior to the present owner had owned the car for some 27 years and it was during his ownership in Florida that it was restored. The engine has recently been serviced and this fabulous iconic Italian sports car is frequently used. These wonderful sports cars with 4 seat capacity are great for touring or for more exhilarating driving on country roads. Described to be in good overall condition, this surely is not an opportunity to be missed. Stunning!
1989 BMW Z1 Motorsport Unique example displayed by BMW to celebrate 100 year anniversary Registration Number: German Registered

1952 Mercedes-Benz 220 Saloon Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 01542/52
Estimate: €35,000 - €40,000
The Frankfurt Motor Show in the Spring of 1951 saw the return of Mercedes-Benz to their traditional place in the high quality market with the introduction of the 220 series. In line with the rest of the contemporary range of models, these cars featured six cylinder single overhead camshaft engines, valves being across, not in line with, the head. This unit produced 80bhp at a relaxed 4,600rpm, giving an impressive 90mph top speed. Roadworthiness was described by The Motor at the time as outstanding, all independent suspension giving a remarkably level ride on poor secondary roads, yet with good high speed cornering and precise steering. This car was not cheap however, the German price of £1,098 being inflated to £2,123 for the UK market. Beautifully finished in two-tone red over black, mechanically the car is in good condition and has been very well maintained. Cosmetically, the car is also finished to a high quality with a lot of attention to detail.
1963 Ford Thunderbird Fitted with rare Sports Roadster package Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 3Y852109751
Estimate: €34,000 - €39,000
This beautiful Ford Thunderbird convertible comes fitted with the very rare Sports Roadster package meaning that this third generation Thunderbird is equipped with Kelsey Heyes designed 48-spoke rims and special fibreglass tonneau cover giving it the sporty styling of the first generation two-seater. The Sports Roadster package while immensely beautiful was slow-selling due the extremely high price of the package. Ford’s records inform us that only 1427 were made in ’62, only 455 in ’63 and a mere 50 made in ’64, making this 1963 example very rare indeed. Several years ago this now very impressive example underwent a complete restoration, and despite being described as having been in a good, original and very solid condition before works begun, a vast amount of money has been spent making this car even better. The 6.4 litre V8 runs well and the automatic gearbox shifts smooth and the electric soft-top works as it should. Altogether a very nice example.
1991 BMW Z1 AC Schnitzer One of 10 produced – Extensive history file Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WBABA91040AL06957
Estimate: €58,000 - €68,000
Produced on the 19th February 1991 and delivered to Schnitzer in Freilassing on the 25th February, the car remains in its original and very desirable colour scheme of Traumschrwarz and dark grey leather interior. Both of which are described to be in good condition throughout. The car is provided with extensive documentation including maintenance booklets, invoices, English MOT reports and remarkably a signature from Mr. Harm Lagaay, - the Dutch man who originally designed the Z1 for BMW! With only 10 Z1’s originally tuned by AC Schnitzer, rarely are these exclusive cars ever seen, let alone offered for sale on the open market. With even average Z1’s selling well in today’s market, a special edition low-production example with such an extensive history file can only represent a fantastic investment opportunity. Offered with a very realistic reserve.
1992 Porsche 964 RS French delivered example 45,800km from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WP0ZZZ96ZMS491035
Estimate: €180,000 - €230,000
Representing a major step forward in the development of Porsche’s perennial 911, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 2 (‘Type 964’ in factory parlance) had been launched in 1989, the former marking the first time that four-wheel drive had been seen on a series-production model. Porsche had experimented with fourwheel drive on the 959 supercar, and many of the lessons learned from the latter influenced the design of the new Carreras’ chassis and suspension. Face-lifted but retaining that familiar shape, the newcomers had been given a more extensive work-over mechanically, 87% of parts being claimed as entirely new. The pair shared the same 3.6-litre, flat-six engine, while power-assisted steering (another 911 ‘first’), anti-lock brakes and a five-speed manual transmission were standard on both, with the Tiptronic auto gearbox a Carrera 2-only option. Its new engine enabled the 964 to out-perform the old ‘3.2’ yet still met the latest emissions regulations, top speed increasing to 162mph with 60mph attainable in 5.4 seconds (5.6 seconds Tiptronic). Evoking memories of the legendary 2.7 and 3.0-litre RS and RSR ‘homologation specials’ of the 1970’s, in 1992 Porsche introduced a Type 964 Carrera RS, which was a lightweight variant like its illustrious forebears. It was based on the ‘Carrera Cup’ competition car and sold in the European market only. The Carrera RS retained the 3.6-litre engine, which was boosted in maximum output to 260bhp. Delivered new on the 28th of April 1992 to its first private owner in France, this fastidiously looked after 964RS has travelled a mere 45,800km from new. Finished in white over black, the car has had only 2 previous owners and comes with a Porsche Scheckheft, numerous bills and invoices confirming mileage, space saver wheel, original tools, compressor, and is fitted with its original magnesium wheels.
1934 Alfa Romeo 6C Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 700200
Estimate: €175,000 - €220,000
The 2300’s newly developed six-cylinder 2,309cc engine featured an integrally cast crankcase and cylinder block topped by an aluminium-alloy cylinder head. Two basic specifications were available, the Turismo model with a long wheelbase chassis and the Gran Turimso models with a shortened wheelbase. In 1934 the 6C 2300 made an a uspicious competition debut in the inaugural “Giro d’Italia – Coppa d’Oro del Littorio”, a race held in three stages over a total of some 5,687 km. Four cars with open coachwork by Brianza were entrusted to the Scuderia Ferrari, which collaborated closely with Alfa Romeo in the competition department. The engines were equipped with a new inlet manifold and two 35 mm Solex carburettors, two 3-in-1 exhaust manifolds, a longer differential ratio, Bosch electrics with a second battery, enlarged petrol tank, two petrol pumps and the addition of a rev counter.
Thus equipped, the engines produced more than 100 hp. Alfa Romeo did meet some bad luck in the course of the race as the leading car driven by Marinoni had an accident in the second stage. However, the other three cars had more success, with the Rosa-Comotti car finishing second, and the other cars finishing fourth and fifth overall. The definitive success of the model however came at the “Targa Abruzzo – 24 Ore di Pescara” on 12th and 13th August 1934 where three Berlinette with coachwork by Touring finished 1st, 2nd and 3rd with the Cortese-Severi car winning against stiff competition from the Lancia Astura driven by Pintacuda-Brivio, who had won the previous Giro d’Italia, and the two Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 of Tazio Nuvolari and Guy Moll.
On the back of this success, Alfa Romeo decided to build a small series of 60 Gran Turismo cars with the mechanical specifications of the racing Berlinetta with various coachwork, ranging from saloons to open spiders. These cars were called Pescara to record these triumphant race results. They were the predecessor of the new 6C 2300 B Mille Miglia models with Touring bodies which debuted at the 1937 Mille Miglia. This wonderful Alfa Romeo 6C was first registered in 1934, later being rebodied in the Pescara style by John Lawson of Australia in 1953. Lawson clearly loved the Alfa, keeping the car for 36 years in all. The Alfa enjoyed a restoration in 1970, during which time the current engine and gearbox were fitted to the car. Currently registered to Germany, the AlfaRomeo has participated in many prestigious rallies across Europe, and is ready to be enjoyed once more, having had a rebuild of the gearbox to ensure it performs well. A rare opportunity to buy this Alfa-Romeo 6 C at a fraction of the price of an original Grand Sport, and as such not to be missed.
1997 Ferrari F355 Challenge Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFXR41B000107970
Estimate: €150,000 – €200,000
This Ferrari 355 Challenge is an original factory Challenge car which was delivered to Auto-Neuser and thought to be one of five cars delivered to Germany. The car was delivered as a road legal race car, with air conditioning and Ferrari service book, stamped and specified as ‘Ferrari 355 B Challenge’. The car has from the factory the F40 brake kit with special air-cooling, ultra-light magnesium rims and Challenge exhaust system. The car has two former owners and was part of a collection from 2008 to 2016, and was rarely used during this time. Purchased by the current owner after this period, the task of restoration began with a frame off restoration. Now complete and in race setup producing 450bhp up to 11,000 rpm, the car is said to have incredible acceleration and a top speed of 320km/h. Having covered 47,250km to date and offer with ‘Original documents’. These Challenge cars are low-production, road legal racers, celebrated by enthusiasts and collectors alike are said to be the last road legal, six-speed racing cars Ferrari ever built and are of ever growing popularity and collectability.
1968 Porsche 911L Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 22805253
Estimate: €75,000 - €85,000
Production of the successor to the Porsche 356 began in 1964. It had appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show under the ‘901’ banner, however, Peugeot claimed that they had a legal right to this number sequence so the 911 was born. This fantastic matching numbers example of the rare 911L model was sold new via agent VW Pacific of Culver City, California, on 11th March 1968, finished in Polo Red with a black leather interior. Now restored very nicely and presented in Grand Prix white with distinctive black Porsche stripes, this beautiful 911L is offered with a Porsche COA, original books and service records. Supplied with Dutch registration papers, this is a lovely example of a very rare variant of the early 911.
1958 Mercedes-Benz 300 “Adenauer” Beautiful older restoration Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 7500153
Estimate: €58,000 - €65,000
Sharing many mechanical and optical innovations with the iconic 300SL “Gullwing” including an almost identical engine, these W189 series cars are exceptionally exclusive and one of the rarest postwar Mercedes models. The 300d was the successor to the 300c and received among other things, an improved injection engine delivering 160bhp. Suitably finished in black and equipped with a beautiful wooden dashboard and grey velour interior, the chromework and pillar-less windows makes this car a truly impressive limousine. Described by the vendor to be in beautiful original condition with solid bodywork and perfect panel fits, hinges and locks, the car has recently been equipped with a new exhaust system and presents very well indeed. Having been subject to an older restoration, the car is in a very good condition whilst retaining some lovely patina which provides great confidence into the cars overall condition and level of care to which the car has been subject to over the years.
1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 1R9154
Estimate: €70,000 - €90,000
This nicely restored Series II Roadster (OTS) model was delivered new to the United States, returning to the Netherlands in the mid1990s, where it was restored and enjoyed regularly on the road. Still retaining its matching numbers 4.2 litre motor, the E-Type is fitted with an original set of 72-spoke chrome wire wheels, a stainless steel exhaust and an “as new” black canvas convertible roof. Maintained very well by its last private owner, the E-Type has had APK technical inspections every 2 years, with the most recent valid to September 2018 (with no comments). The history file also contains recent repair invoices to demonstrate the level of attention that the E-Type has benefitted from. A very well loved and cherished classic, this is a fine example of the definitive sportscar of the 1960s.
1982 De Tomaso GT 5 Last owner since 1985 Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 09204
Estimate: €180,000 - €210,000
Having established himself as a serious automobile manufacturer with the Mangusta coupé, Alejandro De Tomaso commissioned Lamborghini designer Gianpaolo Dallara to produce the chassis for his new mid-engined supercar, the Pantera. Dallara opted for unitary construction for the steel chassis/body – abandoning the Mangusta’s backbone frame – and competition-specification double wishbone/coilspring suspension all round. The Ford Motor Company was De Tomaso’s partner at the time of the Pantera’s introduction in 1971 and thus the Pantera, like the Mangusta, relied on Ford V8 power. Mated to an all-synchro ZF five-speed transaxle, the 5.8-litre Cleveland engine varied in output depending on the destination market, and in European trim came with 330bhp on tap, enabling the Pantera to complete the 0-60mph sprint in a little over 5 seconds and touch 160mph flat out. Styled by Tom Tjaarda at Carrozzeria Ghia, the stunning coupé body was in fact built by Vignale, both companies being part of De Tomaso’s empire in the early 1970’s. De Tomaso’s longstanding relationship with the Ford Motor Company led to an arrangement whereby the Pantera was distributed through select LincolnMercury dealerships in the USA, where a lower compression, 248bhp Cleveland motor (meeting stricter emissions regulations) was introduced for 1972. The 1974 energy crisis led to a parting of the ways between Ford and De Tomaso, who continued to sell the Pantera in Europe. According to De Tomaso the chassis was completely revised in 1980, beginning with chassis number 9000. From May 1980 the lineup included the GT5, which had bonded and riveted-on fibreglass wheelarch extensions and from November 1984 the GT5S model which had blended arches and a distinctive widebody look. The GT5 also incorporated better brakes, a more luxurious interior, much larger wheels and tires and the fiberglass body kit also included an air dam and side skirts. Production of the wide body GT5 (and similarly equipped narrow body GTS models) continued until 1985, when the GT5-S replaced the GT5. This GT5 we have here is a super rare car and one of the few, delivered to Germany when new. This one has a total recorded mileage of only approximately 8,200 kms from new and is described to be in mint condition throughout. Owned by the now vendor since 1985, the car has been fastidiously maintained and serviced. Throughout most of its life time it has been stored in ideal condition. Finished in silver with its original black interior, as it left the factory, this GT5 surely is an unrepeatable opportunity for the serious collector of the most important De Tomaso’s ever built and as such not to be missed.
1994 Porsche 993 Cup Car Ex-Schumacher, complete with Wagenpass Registration Number: N/A
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ99ZRS398075
Estimate: €200,000 - €250,000
993 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998 (model years 19951998 in the United States), replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches, with the 993 being not just the last air-cooled 911, but also the last of the hand built 911s. The 993 generation of the 911 is often referred to as the best and most desirable of the 911 series, not only because of its beauty, but also because its performance is very good, even by modern standards, and the 993 was “the last complete ‘modern classic’”; “the 993 was and forever will be that last fresh breath of air that Porsche gave the world; elegance and muscle all in one package.” The book “Porsche 993 – Essential Companion” refers to the 993 as the “King of Porsche,” and it is generally acknowledged as “The purists’ Holy Grail. This particular 993 Cup Car was extensively campaigned during the 1994 and 1995 FIA World Championship Porsche Cup Series and was also raced by none other than Ralph Schumacher. Complete with Wagenpass, restored and wellprepared, further details are available upon request.
1957 Aston Martin DB Mark III Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: AM300/3/1747
Estimate: €250,000 - €300,000
The landmark DB2, considered the first “true” post-war Aston Martin, was introduced in May 1950. The ultimate and most highly refined variant, the DB Mark III, debuted in March 1957 and was produced through July 1959, when the DB4 ultimately succeeded it. Legendary Aston Martin engineer Tadek Marek thoroughly revised the existing six-cylinder W.O. Bentley/Lagonda engine design, with output rising to 162bhp or 178bhp with the optional twin-exhaust system. Front disc brakes supplemented “Alfin” finned aluminium rear drum brakes, with the upgrade optional on the first 100 DB Mark III’s and standard on the final Mark IIIB variant of 1958-1959.
Styling and body fittings were updated, most notably with a revised grille opening inspired by the DB3S sports racer that provided unmistakable brand continuity and essentially remained in effect through the V8 models of the late 1980’s. The Frank Feeley-revised instrument panel echoed the grille’s shape, with the gauges now positioned directly in front of the driver.
Only 551 DB Mark III’s were produced, including one purpose-built competition model, with 462 Coupes and 84 Drophead Coupes built. By virtue of their Feltham-era, hand-built quality and legendary capabilities, each surviving example remains highly coveted today.
The stunning example you see here has enjoyed a huge frame-off restoration over a 3 year period, during which all key areas of the car were attended to, supported by a photographic record of the works. Extremely well finished in Ivory White with a Red Leather interior, this is one of the very nicest DB series Astons we have seen for a long time.
1958 Jaguar XK150 Roadster Registration Number: UK regsitered
Chassis Number: S830464 Estimate: €120,000- €140,000
Introduced in the spring of 1957, the XK150 was available at first only in fixed and drophead coupé forms, the open roadster version not appearing until the following year. At 190bhp, the engine’s maximum power output was identical to that of the XK140 so performance was little changed. ‘Special Equipment’ and ‘S’ versions came with 210 and 250bhp respectively, the latter delivering an astonishing 0-60mph time of 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 136mph. This was achieved by the introduction of the Weslake-developed ‘straight-port’ cylinder head, high-compression pistons, triple 2 SU carburettors and twin electric fuel pumps. Overdrive and a Borg-Warner automatic gearbox were the transmission options, the latter becoming an increasingly popular choice, while a Thornton Powr-Lok limitedslip differential was available for the XK150S. Steel wheels remained the standard fitting, though XK150s so equipped are a great rarity, as most were sold in SE (Special Equipment) specification with centre-lock wire wheels. The much-admired chromed Jaguar mascot was made available as an optional extra on an XK for the first time. This wonderful left hand drive XK150 benefits from a very recent and significant body off restoration, and has been finished to a very high standard. The engine has also benefited from a rebuild. The matching numbers engine was stripped , and reassembled and then re-fitted. All the brightwork has been either replaced or rechromed along with a new set of wire wheels. The interior has also been re-trimmed again to a very high standard. Offered with the associated restoration invoices and a V5C document, this wonderful example of the XK may be considered a truly ‘best in class’ example.
1962 Porsche 356 B Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 119240
Estimate: €80,000 - €100,000
Porsche has always manufactured rewarding cars, beautifully made and totally individual, in many ways the modern equivalent to the pre-war Bugatti. The 356 was Porsche’s first production car, and hence the model which brought the marque such enduring fame around the world. Its reliability, performance and wonderfully entertaining handling endeared it to many a keen driver in its time. As so many of the 356 Porsches, the car on offer here spent its life until 2014 in the US. Purchased by the vendor in unrestored condition, a full restoration was started in Germany including all cosmetics as well as engine, gearbox and its mechanics. The outcome of this restoration resulted in this fabulous Porsche 356 of which a condition and valuation report gave it a clear ‘2’ in all respects and is available in the cars history file. Coming with German historic papers, this black beauty with sumptuous red leather interior is immediately usable on the road and of course suitable at the many historic events it is eligible for.
1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL ‘Gullwing’ Evocation by Anton ‘Tony’ Ostermeier One of 50 hand-built examples by Anton Ostermeier One of only two fitted with the 3.4L AMG engine Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WG82491S
Estimate: €260,000 - €320,000
Launched in 1954, the production 300 SL retained the spaceframe chassis and lightweight aluminium-alloy bodywork of the W194 racer while its mechanical underpinnings, like the latter’s, owed much to the contemporary Mercedes-Benz 300 luxury saloon. A 2,996cc overhead-camshaft inline six, the 300 SL’s engine was canted at 45 degrees to achieve a low bonnet line and produced 215bhp (DIN) at 5,800rpm using Bosch mechanical fuel injection. A four-speed, all-synchromesh manual gearbox transmitted power to the hypoid bevel rear axle. Suspension was independent all round: by wishbones and coil springs at the front, with swing axles and coil springs at the rear. The company’s U.S. distributor, Max Hoffman, decided that there was a market in America for a fast, sensual MercedesBenz coupe, and a production version of the racing 300 SL (complete with the fascinating gullwing doors) would be it. This 300SL Recreation was built by the well known Anton ‘Tony’ Ostermeier. As a former Mercedes employee, Ostermeier had a workshop in Gardena, California called Gullwing Car Company. From that location the well-made, hand craft ‘gullwings’ were created. This SL on offer is a Tony Ostermeier car with many original Mercedes components.
The cars were built on a modern 300E chassis, featured an updated drivetrain, suspension, and brakes that made for a very usable street car. Molds were made from an original 300 SL Gullwing, ensuring accuracy. The panels were made of aluminium reinforced with aircraft epoxy/fiberglass and steel. The parts crafted by Tony were so accurate and of high quality that they were ultimately purchased and used on authentic 300SL coupes and roadsters. Mercedes-Benz in Germany was one of his customers.
Tony Ostermeier built 50 Gullwings in the 80’s in California. Most cars have been purchased by original Mercedes 300 SL owners, who preferred to use an Ostermeier one as a daily car instead of the “Museum Gullwing”. All the cars were fitted with a 2.8 or 3.0 straight six Mercedes engine / 180 hp. The bodies were made in composite aluminium, the GLARE (Glass Laminated Aluminium Reinforced Epoxy), developed for the aéronautical industry. Only 2 cars were built with the new AMG 3.4 straight six engine, with a desirable 280 hp, which turns it into a real sport car. This car is one of those 2. In 2015 this rare AMG example underwent a comprehensive restoration by Rotscher Classics who are a renowned Mercedes-Benz specialist in Germany. The restoration was well-documented and consisted of up-rating the original 4 speed automatic gearbox with a manual 6 speed. The car has covered a mere 58.000 km from new and only 800 km since its restoration. The Ostermeier cars are the only Gullwing replicas available in the world that were built before Mercedes-Benz Company, trademarked the shape of the 300 SL. Since the 80’s the Ostermeier Gullwing value, has always been at the very least 25% of the original Mercedes Gullwing price. Offered with a great history and German registration papers, this example can only be described as good to excellent condition throughout.
1969 Porsche 911T Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 119121556
Estimate: €65,000 – €75,000
‘The 911 is the best Porsche ever – all the vices of the old suspension have been eliminated, and the modern offbeat styling should have a much broader appeal than the old bathtub shape. The overheadcam, 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. Delivered new to California U.S.A in Goldgrun green with faux leather interior this matching numbers 911T on offer presents in excellent condition. A body off no expense spared restoration has recently been completed including a comprehensive bare metal respray to a very high standard.

In excellent all-round condition this 911 is ready for a new custodian for the coming summer months.
1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 1426952
Estimate: €40,000 - €45,000
The Alfa Romeo Montreal was designed by Bertone to an attempt of Alfa Romeo to create a competitive Grand Tourer. The V8 engine comes directly from the T33 Alfa Romeo Racing car and combined with the advanced Spica Injection engine. This would bring a real supercar sound and 0-60 at 7.6 seconds. Since the concept car was already unofficially known as The Montreal, Alfa Romeo kept the model name in production. Stylistically, the most eye catching feature is the car’s front end with four headlamps partly covered by unusual “grilles”, that retract when the lights are switched on. Finished in the classic combination of Rosso Alfa with a black interior, this nicely presented example has good bodywork with very good panel gaps, and we understand runs and drives extremely nicely. The interior is very well preserved, in fact the whole presentation of the car is very favourable. This rare “baby Miura” could stand proud next to much more valuable supercars new and old.
1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda Same ownership from 1971 to 2018 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 006028
Estimate: €65,000 - €80,000
If one is looking for the perfect all-around car for rallies, shows and Sunday cruising, this might be the car. With an exquisite history file from Long term ownership, this European-delivery 280SL is among the most desirable examples we have been entrusted with.

This stunning car on offer is finished in Blue, over its original and wonderful interior, the Pagoda roof hardtop is finished in the same blue paint as the rest of the car and is in excellent order. Complete with its original Manuals, and spare key this highly desirable European specification example, the car is equipped with headlamps that create a truly distinctive look on the Pagoda in comparison to the US models that sport round sealed beam headlamps. Upon a recent road test, this 280SL performed as well as it presents, and gives one a feeling of quality craftsmanship.
1976 Ferrari 208 GT4 Dino Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 11378
Estimate: €50,000 - €60,000
Finished in its original Blu Chiaro Metallizzato with Blue interior, in early 2016 this car was the subject of a full photographic and documented nut and bolt restoration at the renowned Modena Classic Works. A stone’s throw from Ferrari’s home at Maranello, the work undertaken included a full respray, a sympathetic interior restoration and a full mechanical overhaul including new suspension and brakes. Furthermore, the engine and gearbox were rebuilt to exacting standards, with every nut and bolt zinc plated to return them to new condition. Presented with a mere 39,000km on the odometer, this car is exactly as it left the factory and in unrepeatable condition. The car comes with a UK V5 registration document and a history file containing over 1000 photos of the restoration and invoices in excess of €30,000. You are unlikely to find a better example of this model anywhere in the world.
Brooke E.R.A Monoposto Offered with Bedford Transporter and substantial spares package Offered at No Reserve Estimate: No Reserve
E.R.A - English Racing Automobiles Ltd was founded by Humphrey Cook, Raymond Mays, and Peter Berthon in November 1933 and established in Bourne Lincolnshire, within the grounds of Eastgate house the family home of Raymond Mays. Their ambition was to manufacture and campaign a team of single seater racing cars capable of upholding British prestige in Continental European racing. Henry Leslie Brooke built his single-seater racing car in 1936 based on a modified Riley Imp chassis and powered it initially with an 1100cc six-cylinder MG K3 engine. He entered a variety of UK based events during the 1937 season including the Imperial Trophy at Crystal Palace in October where it encountered the Maseratis (4CM) of Piero Trossi and “Johnny”, Luigi Villoresi (6CM) and Archie Hyde (8CM) along with the E.R.A’s of Raymond Mays, Arthur Dobson, B.Bira and Peter Whitehead. As this was his first season in the car he had little success, resulting in a total revamp during the winter period. The following season emerging with an Andre Girling independent front suspension and a Zoller supercharger.
It was competitive now and ran in the May JCC International Trophy Race at Brooklands followed by the June 28th London Grand Prix at Crystal Palace and on August the 27th the JCC 200 Mile Race at Brooklands before finishing fourth during the October Crystal Palace meeting. Constantly searching for a performance edge, Brooke experimented with a variety of MG, ERA, Alta and Dixon-Riley powerplants throughout the 1938 and 1939 seasons and he took delivery of a blown 1.5 litre Alta engine in April 1939 and is also known to have run the car with also a 2-litre engine. He also competed in the 1938 South African Grand Prix and Albi Grand Prix using a force-fed ERA motor in the former race.
The Brooke E.R.A took part in its last pre-war race at Crystal Palace before being laid-up during World War 2. Emerging from hibernation and with the supercharged 1.5 litre ERA engine, Henry Brooke took part in the June 1946 Shelley Walsh hill climb meeting without bodywork fitted as his coach builder hadn’t finished it in time. In 1947 the Brooke was passed on to well known racer George Nixon along with the Dixon-6CM unit and Nixon’s’ mechanics Tom and Fred Amos overhauled the car’s unborn 1750cc six-cylinder engine as Brooke had retained the ERA engine as a spare. Nixon had new bodywork and a twenty-five-gallon fuel tank fitted and made his competitive debut in the Brooke at the Isle of Man Manx Cup Race and the Nixon rose from third to first pulling away from the rest of the field to cross the finishing line in first place. George Nixon then bought an A-Type ERA and passed the Brooke onto fellow racer and BRDC member Ken Downing in 1949. Retiring from that year’s Manx Cup, Downing coaxed a third and two fourths in Goodwood Handicaps, seventh in the Lavant Cup and eighth in the Madgwick Cup and in the search for more speed, he fitted the Brooke with a 2 litre V12 Delage unit for 1950. The Brooke-Delage was not a success and later passed on to Derek Tasker and was still in Tasker’s possession eight years later, then briefly owned by Raphael Car Sales Ltd during the late 1960s until it was subsequently discovered in a heated Liverpool warehouse by Graham Baker of Holmes Chapel. Baker not only managed to track down Tom Amos but also made contact with Manx resident and BRDC member T. G. Moore both of whom helped flush out the Brooke’s history.
The car was restored in the early 1970’s and took part in various VSCC events the following decade before migrating to Belgium. The Brooke was reunited with a supercharged ERA engine during the early 1990s and its pre-WW2 independent front suspension assembly was refitted in 2000 at the FIA / HGPCA’s request. Driven by Barrie and Mark Gillies, it made UK appearances in 1994 and 1996 taking an outright win on the latter occasion at the Coys Festival of Speed and a second at Donington with successes at Goodwood but spent most of its track time on the continent participating in the European Historic Grand Prix (1999), Spa-Francorchamps (1999), Grand Prix de Pau (2001) and the European Historic Grand Prix at Zolder (2001). Outpacing a Maserati 250F and Ferrari Dino, Rod Jolley piloted the Brooke E.R.A to highly impressive third (wet conditions) and then a win on a dry track at the HGPCA’s Trofeo Alberto Ascari Imola meeting in 2002 before also setting the fastest time at that year’s Klausen-Rennen hill climb. Since then, it has had circuit outings at the Historic Grand Prix Dijon in 2002 and the European Historic Grand Prix Zolder in 2004 while its hill climb assault at Arosa in 2005 was rewarded with a pre-WW2 class win and eighth place overall behind only seven slick-shod modern racing cars and was raced by Marcus Pye at the Silverstone classic before being purchased by Tim Metcalfe who campaigned extensively with success around the major circuits up until 2010 and whilst running in fourth place at Goodwood decided to retire due to an engine issue. The Brooke has more recently had its 2 Litre blown E.R.A engine rebuilt for last year’s 2017 season where it campaigned at the Goodwood revival. As the only Brooke E.R.A Monoposto in existence it is very rare to see it come to the open market and the opportunity to acquire a historic racing car is very limited indeed. We are proud to offer this example with a highly regarded provenance and extremely competitive Historic racing career from surely the most nostalgic golden era of road racing competition and piloted in the right hands the Brooke is sure to be winning again. The Brooke ERA is offered with a substantial spares package including many valuable and rare parts that can provide the new custodian with an opportunity to build a spare ERA engine.
Perhaps most interestingly is a current V5 Registration document along with the original beige log book that was issued when a 2 seat racing car was made in the fifties and parts of the chassis that was retained. The 2 seater ran with the Dixon Riley 6C engine and was road registered . In addition is the recently restored 1936 Bedford WS ‘ERA’ transporter which was invited last year to the Goodwood Revival , the restoration was not finished in time and now completed it should be welcomed at any international event . This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a very historic competitive and established racer with a transporter and a substantial spares package.

2007 Porsche 997 GT3 RS Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ99Z790639
Estimate: €105,000 - €135,000
Intended primarily for racing, though still road legal, the Porsche 911 GT3 – first introduced in 1999 – can trace its ancestry all the way back through a succession of high-performance models to the legendary 911 Carrera RS of 1973. The car takes its name from the FIA’s GT3 category of production sports car racing, and has been produced in a variety of versions since its introduction in 1999 on the Type 996 iteration of the perennial 911. Following the launch of the original Type 996 GT3, Porsche introduced an even more track-focused variant in 2003: the GT3 RS. Standing for RennSport (literally ‘race sport’), the ‘RS’ designation referenced that iconic first-of-the-line model of 40 years previously. In GT3 RS specification, the 3.6-litre flat-six ‘Metzger’ engine was up-rated, producing around 400bhp, although the claimed output remained unchanged at 318bhp for homologation purposes. The RS was lighter than the ‘ordinary’ GT3, weight saving measures including a polycarbonate rear window, and carbon-fibre bonnet and rear wing, while the stock cast-iron brake discs were replaced with ceramic composite rotors for greater fade resistance under competition conditions. RS suspension was adjustable, and the car ran some 3mm lower than the stock GT3. For 2006 the GT3 was extensively redesigned and improved on the Type 997 platform. New features included ‘zero lift’ aerodynamics and Porsche’s PASM electronically adjustable active suspension system, specially configured for track use. Porsche claimed a 0-60mph time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 193km/h for the new GT3. By the end of the year there was also an RS ‘homologation special’. Weight-saving measures similar to those seen on the Type 996 RS were applied, while the body was wider than that of the Type 997 GT3, accommodating an increase in rear track. This rare high-performance 911 variant has had only two previous owners from new and comes provided with full Porsche dealer service history. Described to be in good condition throughout, this fastidiously maintained, incredibly powerful and fun, yet usable road car is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
1972 Porsche 911 T/E Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: 9112
Estimate: €65,000 - €80,000
The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S, which featured stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels and a heavily revised and more powerful engine. Improved handling courtesy of a lengthened wheelbase arrived in 1969 and then in 1970 the 911’s air-cooled, flat six engine underwent the first of many enlargements – to 2.2 litres. By this time the models on offer had stabilised at three: the entry-level 911T, middle-ranking 911E and top-of-the-range 911S, all of which were available as either a closed coupé or Targa convertible. With the 2.2-litre engine’s arrival, a common type of cylinder head was adopted, the differing power outputs being determined principally by valve timing rather than valve sizes as had been the case hitherto. In 1972 all 911 variants received the 2,341cc (nominally 2.4-litre) unit, which in ‘E’ specification produced a maximum of 165bhp. This 91T/E on offer today is in good condition throughout. Matching numbers and finished in azure blue, this desirable 72’ example comes from a private Belgian collection and would welcome closer inspection.
1976 Porsche 930 3.0 Turbo Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 9307700146
Estimate: €110,000 - €130,000
Borrowing the flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler from the Carrera model, the Turbo had aggressive looks to match the performance. It also incorporated the most luxurious interior yet seen in a 911, with leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. One of only 644 Turbos manufactured in 1976, this fabulous matching numbers example was subject to a comprehensive restoration and now presents extremely nicely in its original shade of ‘Braunkupferdiamant’ with a re-trimmed beige leather interior. More recently the engine has benefitted from a further 7,000 in additional works. Showing 80,000km recorded, and offered with Porsche Geburtsurkunde, this is a first class example of one of the most collectible variants of the iconic 911 Turbo.
1952 Porsche 356 Pre-A 1500 Coupe Comprehensively restored - One of the first one-piece “bent” windscreen and synchronised transmission examples Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: 11481
Estimate: €250,000 - €300,000
Porsche’s Type 356, introduced in 1948, is acknowledged to be one of the world’s great sports cars and in 1951 an aluminium-bodied works car finished first in the 1,100cc class at the Le Mans 24-Hour Race and 20th overall, thus beginning the marque’s long and illustrious association with La Sarthe. Over a 15-year production run, the handsome and durable 356 evolved from a streamlined little aluminium-bodied coupe powered by a VW-derived, 46bhp 1,100cc air-cooled flat four to a powerful autobahn burner carrying a complex, two-litre four-cam boxer Carrera engine of 130bhp. Its development brought not only coupes, but luxurious cabriolets and more spartan speedsters and roadsters. The 1952 Porsche 356 Pre-A is an interesting model-year, as it marks the change from the split windshield to the bent windshield, which is curved in the centre and at each edge.
Here we have a fantastic Porsche 356 Pre-A Bent Window (Knicksheibe) from 1952, the genuine presentation model from Reutter of Stuttgart. In 1952 these Porsche 356’s were one of the fastest cars in production, accelerating to 170km/h and producing 102 NM of torque, largely due to its advanced crankshaft. Owned by a private collector and enthusiast, this early Pre-A has been subject of a comprehensive restoration that began in 2009 and is now found in excellent condition throughout. Having since been fastidiously looked after and kept in the company of several other early 356’s, the opportunity to purchase this car is born out of a reluctant sale.
Finished in the very desirable and original Porsche colour of Radium green, this represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase an early ‘Pre-A’. Rarely do these early examples come on the market and especially in this condition. With no Porsche Collection being truly complete without one of the founding models that began such a success story, and with prices for the early Pre-A’s reaching ever new heights, this particular example is offered with a very realistic reserve and is well worth close attention.
1992 Lamborghini LM002 One owner from new Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: ZA9LU45AXLLA12291
Estimate: €170,000 - €190,000
The LM002 resulted from a series of stillborn off-road prototypes originally conceived with military use in mind. First announced in the autumn of 1985 – then unveiled at the 1986 Brussels Auto Show – with deliveries commencing the following year, customers could specify their own level of equipment ranging from luxurious opulence on one end of the scale to Spartan functionality at the other. To cope with the desert terrain that was assumed to be the LM002’s natural home, Pirelli was commissioned to develop special tires and came up with the ‘Scorpion’, a design available in two different tread patterns (mixed use and sand only) that could be run virtually flat. A massive 290-litre gas tank ensured longrange touring abilities. It was only natural that such an ‘over the top’ vehicle would attract wealthy highprofile customers – the first LM002 is reputed to have been sold to HRH King Hassan of Morocco. The late Formula 1 World Champion Ayrton Senna was another high-profile owner, commissioning an LM002 complete with an estate car-type rear enclosure. With a warranted mileage of only 21,450 kms from new, this LM002, finished in black, presents itself in superb overall condition. Having purchased the car from a German Lamborghini dealership in 1993, where it served as a demonstrator, the now vendor is its only private owner to this day. The car was only used by him in the dry area of south Spain, where he owns a property. Of course it was serviced appropriately as such a car should and today it drives and looks very presentable. This now very sought after Lamborghini model of which only 241 were produced is finished in gleaming black with black leather interior and seating piped in red. The whole interior presents itself with a beautiful wooden dashboard and wood applicants in near new condition. Factory equipped with the V12 engine from the Lamborghini Countach LP 5000 S, this really is an exceptional car. The LM002 comes with German registration documents and a condition and valuation report in the cars file.
1988 Ferrari 328 GTS – Offered at No Reserve Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: ZFFXA20A4J0074721
Estimate: €50,000 - €60,000
Subsequently updated with four-valves per cylinder, the 308 was superseded by the mechanically similar but larger engined 328 GTB in 1985. By increasing both bore and stroke, the quattrovalvole engine’s capacity was raised to 3,186cc which, together with a higher compression ratio, revised pistons, and improved Marelli engine management system, lifted maximum power to 270bhp at 7,000rpm. Top speed was raised to within a whisker of 160mph, with the sprint to 60mph covered in 5.5 seconds. On the outside, the addition of Testarossa-style moulded bumpers, a deeper rear valance and an unobtrusive roof spoiler could not disguise its underlying beauty. This wonderful example was part of a considerable private collection for 19 years before the current vendor took ownership and as such has been meticulously maintained. With a mere 44,000 miles showing on the odometer and presented in the ever popular rosso corsa with sumptuous tan leather interior, this car is a real head-turner wherever it goes. The car comes complete with owners manual, tool roll, targa tonneau cover and has had the relevant taxes paid ready for registration within the EU. Offered at no reserve this is a wonderful opportunity to own a true Ferrari icon from the 1980’s.
1971 Jaguar E-Type Series II 4.2 Fixed Head Coupe Matching numbers with a lovely history file Registration Number: EU Taxes paid
Chassis Number: J712R28315
Estimate: €55,000 - €62,000
Launched in October 1964, the 4.2-litre version of Jaguar’s sensational E-Type brought with it a more user-friendly all-synchromesh gearbox and a superior Lockheed brake servo along with the bigger, torquier engine. Like its 3.8-litre forbear, the 4.2-litre E-Type was built in roadster and coupe forms, and in 1966 gained an additional ‘2+2 variant on a 9” longer wheelbase. Changes to United States safety and emissions legislation prompted the revised Series II E-Type of 1968. The headlight fairings were deleted, enlarged side and rear lights adopted, while a thickened front bumper centre section bridged a larger radiator intake. Interior changes included a collapsible steering column and rocker switches in place of the earlier toggles. This beautiful matching numbers manual example is not only offered with a swathe of service documentation but also its original maintenance and service handbook. Described by the owner as a great daily driver, the car comes with a lovely amount of patina and in fantastic original and unmolested condition. Clean, presentable and mechanically sound, this car is indeed a fun British sports car, but also a very practical Sunday driver.
1974 De Tomaso Pantera GTS Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 6817
Estimate: €120.000 - €140,000
Having established himself as a serious automobile manufacturer with the Mangusta coupé, Alejandro De Tomaso commissioned Lamborghini designer Gianpaolo Dallara to produce the chassis for his new mid-engined supercar, the Pantera. Dallara opted for unitary construction for the steel chassis/body – abandoning the Mangusta’s backbone frame – and competition-specification double wishbone/coil-spring suspension all round. The Ford Motor Company was De Tomaso’s partner at the time of the Pantera’s introduction in 1971 and thus the Pantera, like the Mangusta, relied on Ford V8 power. Mated to a ZF all-synchro five-speed transaxle, the 351ci (5.8-litre) Cleveland engine varied in output depending on the destination market, and in European trim came with 330bhp on tap, enabling the Pantera to complete the 0-60mph (0-96km/ h) sprint in a little over 5 seconds and touch 160mph (257km/h) flat out. Styled by Tom Tjaarda at Carrozzeria Ghia, the stunning coupé body was in fact built by Vignale, both companies being part of De Tomaso’s empire in the early 1970s. De Tomaso’s longstanding relationship with the Ford Motor Company led to an arrangement whereby the Pantera was distributed through select Lincoln-Mercury dealerships in the USA, where a lower compression, 248bhp Cleveland motor (meeting stricter emissions regulations) was introduced for 1972. The 1974 energy crisis led to a parting of the ways between Ford and De Tomaso, who continued to sell the Pantera in Europe. Exceptionally long-lived for a supercar, the Pantera was still around in the 1990s having undergone a series of upgrades. The first of these had appeared on the ‘L’ model of 1972, which featured ‘impact resistant’ bumpers and improved cooling and air conditioning systems. Flared wheelarches distinguished the GTS model of 1974, which in European trim came with a 350bhp engine, larger wheels/tyres and other performance enhancements. Introduced at approximately the same time was the GT/4, a development of the Group 4 competition cars of 1972/73. The first major revision of the Pantera’s body style occurred in 1980 with the introduction of the GT5 which, with its deep front air dam and delta-wing rear spoiler, represented one of the earliest examples of these aerodynamic devices being applied to passenger car design. Introduced in 1985, the GTS5 incorporated further revisions to the bodywork while its interior was significantly upgraded, rivalling that of many a luxury limousine. In 1990 the Pantera was completely redesigned by Bertone’s Marcello Gandini, stylist of Lamborghini’s Miura and Countach, emerging as virtually a completely new model. Production of the world longest-running supercar finally ceased in 1993. One of Just 400 GTS Pantera GTS produced. Subject to both Mechanical and Body restoration. Expert evidence by Doucy confirming its concours condition this wonderful GTS would grace any worldwide collection.
1972 Intermeccanica Indra Spider Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 81002414
Estimate: €45,000 - €55,000
The Indra was presented at the Geneva Automobile Show and was Intermeccanica’s most successful car yet. Between 1971 and 1974, 125 Indras in three variants, convertible, notchback coupe and fastback coupe were developed and built. In 1973 the Indra was presented at the New York Automobile Show, again with many orders taken and distributorship for U.S. set up. At this stage GM changed policy and stopped supplying both the Chevrolet engines and the Opel parts, as well as advising their Opel dealers in Germany that they were no longer to sell the Indras, with disastrous results for Intermeccanica. Distributor Erich Bitter developed a very similar replacement, the Bitter CD, built by Baur. One of only 60 Indra Spiders produced, this rare and desirable Italian sportscar is the only known example to be offered on the open market today. Finished in fly yellow with a black interior, the Indra makes an interesting and unusual alternative to the more mainstream sportscars of the 1970s.
2002 Morgan Aero 8 4,800 miles from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: SA9AERO8000460118
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
The engine first powering the Aero 8 was a 4,400 cc V8 built by BMW mated to a 6-Speed Getrag transmission. In 2007, the Series 4 Aero 8 was released which had an upgraded 4,799 cc V8 built by BMW with an optional ZF automatic transmission. All Aero 8’s are assembled at Morgan’s Malvern Link factory, where they are able to produce up to 14 cars a week (Aeros and traditionals). This lovely handmade Aero 8 was first registered in 2002, and in the last 16 years has covered a mere 4,800 miles (7,700 kilometres) from new. In keeping with the BMW power at the front, the Aero 8 was finished in BMW Avus Blue Metallic with a black leather interior, wooden veneers and aluminium dashboard. With the 282bhp V8 driving through a six-speed gearbox and lightweight chassis, this is a very fast, beautiful sounding sports car with classical Morgan looks. Offered with a Belgian title document, we have in many ways the perfect classic car; fast, fun, reliable and comfortable, but also with genuine head-turning looks and classic appeal.
1929 Bugatti Type 44 Fiacre Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 441141
Estimate: €500,000 - €550,000
Offered publically for the first time since over 4 decades, COYS is particularly proud to present this very rare survivor of only a handful remaining Bugatti T 44 Fiacres today. A sister car is in the world renowned known Mullin museum in California. Delivered new to French Bugatti dealership, Gaston Docime of Paris in 1930, this Bugatti came into the possession of a well-known collector and author of many Bugatti books, Mr Uwe Hucke, in the mid 1960`s. He kept the car until 1977 when he sold the car to Mr. Helmut Schellenberg, the well-known Bugatti racing driver of the 1930`s.
Mr. Schellenberg had the car professionally restored in Germany by the end of the 1970`s at German Bugatti specialist, Feierabend. He kept it until 2005, when it was sold to the now collector and vendor. Indeed, most of its life, 1965 – 2005, chassis #441141 was in the hands of only two collectors, internationally known by any Bugatti enthusiast the world over.
The Bugatti is presented in excellent condition throughout, a thorough service and inspection was done prior to this sale and the car is described as to be on the button and drive wonderfully. It is of course registered in the Bugatti register and comes with an ASC passport and German registration documents in the name of Helmut Schellenberg. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a wonderful Bugatti with the provenance to match.
1964 Fiat 2300S Abarth Coupe Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 114B5121566
Estimate: €40,000 - €50,000
When launched, the Fiat 2300S was one of the fastest and most attractive GT’s of its day, outperforming the Lancia Flaminia and the Alfa Romeo 2600. For competition purposes, Abarth bored out the block from 2,279cc to 2,323cc, fitted three Weber 40 DCOE twinchoke carburettors, increased the compression ratio, and fitted a multi-branch exhaust system. The result of these modifications was an increase in power to some 210bhp and a corresponding increase in top speed to over 130mph. For 1963, Abarth took the model a stage further, developing three competition coupés that competed that season. The most notable was that driven by Paul Frère and Lucien Bianchi, which achieved a class win and 2nd place overall at the Nürburgring 12-Hour race. Another 2300S driven by Rudi Golderner and Karl von Kothen finished in 9th place overall, and in the same year placed 12th overall in the Tour de France. Fun to drive, a Fiat 2300 S would be a delightful, charming, and powerful addition to any collection. Finished in a very attractive combination of Fiat Rosso with a Nero interior, this is a nice example of a very stylish and interesting GT car of the 1960’s.
1973 Range Rover Cabriolet Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €35,000 - €45,000
The Range Rover was greeted enthusiastically by both press and public on its arrival in 1970, offering comfortable cruising at 90mph and a greater off-road capability than most of its customers would ever need. The fact that the original lasted in production for an amazing 24 years before being replaced in 1994 only serves to illustrate the soundness of the original concept. Indeed, the ‘old’ Range Rover – evocatively renamed Range Rover Classic – did not disappear immediately but continued to be built for another year alongside the new version. This unique Range Rover Convertible was restored in 2005 and is now presented in excellent condition; the electric roof functions extremely well, the V8 motor is silky smooth, as is the automatic transmission. Supplied with photographic record of restoration, the Range Rover really drives and looks as good as new, finished in bronze metallic with a tan leather interior. Offered from a Dutch Land Rover collection, this is a fantastically fun and classic car, with prominent former ownership. A wonderful prospect!
1971 Datsun 240Z 44,000 miles from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: HLS3017206
Estimate: €23,000 - €27,000
This beautiful 240Z is presented in highly original and unmolested condition, having covered a mere 44,000 miles from new. Our Datsun is fitted with the desirable manual gearbox, which when mated to its smooth yet powerful 2.4 litre straight six motor provides an exciting driving experience. Furthermore we understand the original period interior is in excellent and barely used condition. Original Datsun 240Zs in good condition are becoming increasingly difficult to find in the current market, and as such we feel this beautiful low mileage example really deserves closer inspection. Finished in period orange with a black interior, we feel this is an excellent buy in the current market, and offered with a US title and EU taxes paid.
1994 Mercedes-Benz E500 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WDB1240361C1631767
Estimate: €25,000 – €35,000
When introduced, this state-of-the art example of automotive technology possessed one of lowest drag coefficients of any passenger vehicle, the 200 model achieving the remarkable figure of 0.28 Cd. Enhanced safety had been another priority, the W124 being designed to withstand an offset impact at 56km/h from front and rear without serious harm to the occupants, while within the passenger cabin there were numerous clever features contrived to minimise injuries in the event of an accident. Needless to say, build quality and reliability were both excellent. Finished in Silver Metallic with Anthracite leather interior, this fantastic example on offer was built in June 1994. Supplied new in Germany and subsequently delivered to Japan, noteworthy features include an electric sunroof, electrically adjustable heated front seats, automatic climate control, heat-insulating glass all round, alarm/ immobiliser, and an electric rear-window roller blind (full original order specification available). With just two previous owners it is said to be in excellent condition and is offered with a UK V5C Registration Certificate, roadworthiness certificate, tax form, owner’s manual, instruction books, service records, and three keys.
1983 Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFJA09B000041933/71
Estimate: €220,000 - €250,000
Ferrari’s newest Berlinetta Boxer model was introduced at the 1981 Frankfurt Salon and although it appeared to be very similar to the outgoing model from a distance, its biggest change was found under the rear clamshell and in the new model’s nomenclature. The 512 BBi replaced the 512 BB’s four Weber carburettors with a Bosh K-Jetronic fuel-injection system, hence the “i” in 512 BBi. This upgrade proved the 512 BBi to be much more user-friendly, making the car not only easier to start but also easier to maintain. For many clients, the addition of the fuel injection was a welcome change, and the 512 BBi is often considered to be the most liveable of Ferrari’s Berlinetta Boxer models. The 512 BBi also received a handful of cosmetic updates, including fitting exposed driving lights in the nose, shortening the aluminium egg-crate grille, and fitting rectangular parking lights in a new shroud for the exhaust at the rear. Just 1,007 examples were built from 1981 to 1984, before production transitioned to the Testarossa.
Built during April of 1982, and first registered in 1983, this stunning matching numbers BB was exported to the US early in its life before being repatriated into Germany in the 1990’s. From 1996 the Boxer became part of the Collection Alberto Garnerone in Turin until 2009, whereupon the car returned to Germany and to its now current ownership. During 2012 this well sorted BB enjoyed a mechanical restoration, including engineout work by well regarded specialist GPS Racing. We note also in the file is a record of an engine rebuild, supported by a bill for 28,000. The Ferrari now shows a very sensible 41,000 kilometres recorded from new. With such high levels of maintenance, the BB is said to be in superb working and driving condition, the body is very solid and straight and shows the correct panel fit. These Boxers are amongst our favourite Ferraris from all eras and this example, finished in the classic Rosso/Nero paint finish with a Crema leather interior, is one of the nicest we have seen for some time.
1976 Porsche 930 Turbo 3.0 Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 9307800174
Estimate: €85,000 - €115,000
Borrowing the flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler from the Carrera model, the Turbo had aggressive looks to match the performance. It also incorporated the most luxurious interior yet seen in a 911, with leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. One of only 644 Turbos manufactured in 1976 this lovely matching numbers 3.0 litre example has been fully restored in 2016 with documented costs in excess of 30,000. Reading a very modest c.45,800km on its odometer, the car comes offered with its very rare original high-tech Blaupunkt radio, fabspeed inox. exhaust system and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
1982 Porsche 930 Turbo Martini Tribute EU delivered and comprehensively restored matching numbers example Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ93ZCS000701
Estimate: €85,000 - €115,000
For 1978 the Turbo’s engine was enlarged to 3.3 litres, gaining an intercooler in the process; power increased to 300bhp and the top speed of what was the fastest-accelerating road car of its day went up to 160mph. Due to strong emission regulation in the US, the Turbo was not imported for the US market between 1979 and 1984, but retuned in 1985, now equipped with upgraded Motronic engine management systems. Targa and Cabriolet versions were also introduced.

1976 Porsche 911S Targa Serviced less than 500 miles ago Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 9116210063
Estimate: €36,000 - €43,000
After 1973, it was decided that the 2.4 litre wasn’t really fast enough for the 911, with the impending American emissions standards threatening to slow the model down to the point that ordinary Cadillac’s would smoke its droopy tail. The solution; to take the 2.7-litre engine developed for the Carrera RS, detune it a bit, and make it standard across the board. Described to be a great daily driver, the 911S on offer here is still finished in its original colour combination of Guards red over black leather interior. Having had a vast amount of work done, both mechanically and cosmetically, the car is in good condition in all respects. Works completed include suspension upgrades along with a new clutch, master cylinder, brake rotors, rebuilt callipers, fluid changes, and a tune-up. The suspension has been upgraded with Turbo tierods, new CV joints, Koni front struts, and Bilstein rear shocks. Offered with a lovely history file including service records, with the last service within the last 500 miles with a fluid change, new spark plug wires, and a new performance clutch, this sporty 911 is ready to hit the road and provide as much fun to its new owner as it has to its last.

1964 Mercury Comet Caliente Property of a Gentleman Registration Number: French Registered
Chassis Number: 516373
Estimate: €6,000 - €10,000
When the Comet first debuted in 1960 as sister to the Ford Falcon, Mercury was experiencing Multiple Personality Disorder. This began with the space-age styling of the 1957 Mercury’s, followed by the utter practicality of the Comet, which was at odds with a brand that was solidly in the medium-priced field. By 1961, even full-size Mercury’s were simply badge-engineered Fords. On offer with us here today is a very original and well-maintained example being sold out of a deceased estate. As with all of cars that belonged to this gentleman, this car has been very well looked after. Offered with original user’s manual and old papers, this lot presents the opportunity to purchase a lot of car for very little money.
1966 Peugeot 404i Property of a Gentleman Registration Number: French Registered
Chassis Number: 8208604
Estimate: €4,000 - €6,000
Styled by Pininfarina, the 404 was offered initially in saloon, estate and pickup guises. A convertible was added in 1962, and a coupé in 1963. The 404 had a 1.6-litre petrol engine, with either a Solex carburettor, although Kugelfischer mechanical fuel injection, or a 1.9-litre diesel engine were available as options. Another option, introduced at the Paris Motor Show as an alternative to the standard column-shift manual unit, was a 3-speed ZF automatic transmission similar to that already offered on certain BMW models. Popular as a taxicab, the 404 enjoyed a reputation for durability and value. Peugeot’s French production ended in 1975. Offered with its original owners manual and numerous maintenance bills, this very original example was a present to its previous custodian as a Valentines present. Used as a daily driver, the car is in beautiful condition and ready to be appreciated by its next custodian.
1970 Citroen ID 19B Property of a Gentleman Registration Number: French registration
Chassis Number: 3927167
Estimate: €7,000 - €9,000
After 180 years of secret development as the successor to the Traction Avant, the DS19 was introduced on the 5th of October 1955 at the Paris Motor Show. In the first 15 minutes of the show, 743 orders were taken, and orders for the first day totalled 12,000. During the 10 days of the show, the DS took in 80,000 deposits; a record that stood for over 60 years. The DS placed third in the 1999 Car of the Century competition, and fifth on Automobile Magazine’s “100 Coolest Cars” listing in 2005. It was also named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers, including Giorgetto Giugaro, Ian Callum, Roy Axe, Paul Bracq and Leonardo Fioravanti. Having been owned by its previous custodian for a number of years, this car has withstood the sands of time beautifully. Offered with French papers, this is yet another car which has been fastidiously looked after and regularly used by its owner.
1954 Studebaker Champion Property of a Gentleman Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: G1309438
Estimate: €7,000 - €9,000
In 1947, Studebaker completely redesigned the Champion and the Commander, making them the first new cars after World War II. The styling included new rear window, flat front fenders, as well as convenience features like back light illumination for gauges and automatic courtesy lights. The Champion made up 65.08% of the total sales for the automaker in 1947. Its 169.9 cu in (2.8.L) I6 engine produced 80 hp in 1947. In 1950, output was increased to 85 hp. Also, new styling (new grill, sheet metal, and rear end) was introduced, as well as an automatic transmission. This later model, somewhat more powerful to its predecessor, is a truly wonderful example of this very important post-war. Having clearly been stored correctly and proudly looked after, bringing a neglected example to a similar condition to this would be a very expensive prospect indeed, making this particular car a very good purchase. Regularly driven and ready for its next custodian.
1973 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 10704412011329
Estimate: €15,000 - €20,000
This fantastic Mercedes-Benz 450SL was delivered new in the spring of 1973 to a Mrs. Delisle in Enico, California, finished in luxurious Icon Gold Metallic with a black leather interior. During Mrs. Delisle’s ownership the SL was maintained by Mercedes Benz Lloyd Pearson Inc. of Pasadena. Having spent much of its life in sunny California, the bodywork of this early SL is very good with even panel gaps. The SL has benefitted from a repaint in the past, and still presents well, and indeed drives well due to careful maintenance over the years. The Mercedes is offered with a complete history file, a wallet containing all original manuals and instruction booklets, also owners registration and Mercedes data cards. Importantly the SL is offered with the factory hardtop, allowing it to be enjoyed all year round. These timeless classic Mercedes Sports were built to last and needed very little in the way of maintenance. This model comes with the highly desirable V8 which provides effortless acceleration and touring ability unmatched by many cars of the last few decades.
1973 De Tomaso Pantera (Uprated to GT 5 spec) Registration Number: EU taxes paid
Chassis Number: THPNN805218
Estimate: €110,000 - €120,000
Exceptionally long-lived for a supercar, the Pantera was still around in the 1990’s having undergone a series of upgrades. The first of these had appeared on the Lusso (luxury) ‘L’ model of 1972, which featured ‘impact resistant’ bumpers and improved cooling and air conditioning systems. Flared wheel arches distinguished the GTS model of 1974, which in European trim came with a 350bhp engine, larger wheels/tyres and other performance enhancements. Introduced at approximately the same time was the GT/4, a development of the Group 4 competition cars of 1972/73. This low mileage Pantera in GTS specification served for years as the demonstrator car of the Californian importer of De Tomaso cars. In view of this, the car was equipped with the best specification available and having been a showpiece of various fairs. It was regularly transported in a truck, meaning the modest mileage it has covered to this day is only 16,228. During a no expense spared full restoration, the 5 litre V8 engine was fitted with a big Holley carburettor and upgraded. The car is also equipped with a bigger cooling system and bigger brakes. The interior has been re-trimmed and Ford Motorsport seats are supplied. This wonderful Pantera is now ready to go, a mint super sports car with a pedigree and nothing for the faint hearted. 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.

Undoubtedly this lot is a treasure for the military collector and unrepeatable with this level of extras.
1971 Porsche 911 T Targa In a collection since 1989 - offered at No Reserve Registration Number: US Registered
Chassis Number: 9111111718 Estimate: €50,000 - €60,000 No Reserve
Porsche’s long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter’s rearengined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356’s VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche’s single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300bhp. The first of countless up-grades came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, the increased urge raising top speed by 10mph to 135mph. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911’s handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements – to 2.2 litres. Tenacious adhesion, responsive steering, very good flexibility, superb brakes, meticulous finish and a solid, unburstable feel were just some of the virtues praised by Motor magazine in its test of a Porsche 911 in 1973. Residing in a Danish collection for almost 30 years, this stunning Porsche 911 T Targa 2.2 is described to be in excellent condition with a total mileage of only 62,800 miles and free of accidents or damages. A matching numbers example, this 911 Targa is finished in its original shade of yellow which was refreshed 2 years ago and with original black leatherette interior. Furthermore it is one of only very few 911 T`s having been delivered by the Porsche factory with some S-equipment as follows:5 speed gearbox, 5 alloy Fuchs wheels 6 x 15, S – instruments, S - oil tank, steering wheel in leather and tinted windows. Importantly, chassis #9111111718 is coming with a Porsche certificate of authenticity, US title, some Danish documents as well as the Porsche 911 T instruction booklet. Bidders are advised that import taxes will be payable if the car would be road registered within the EU at the reduced rate for vehicles with over 30 years of age. 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.

1957 AC Ace Bristol Competition Roadster Entered into the 1959 AvD Nurburgring 1000 kilometres race Full restoration to period specification Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: BEX249
Estimate: €300,000 - €400,000
The success of Cliff Davis’s Tojeiro sports racer prompted AC Cars to put the design into production in 1954 as the Ace. The Davis car’s pretty Ferrari 166-inspired barchetta bodywork was retained, as was John Tojeiro’s twin-tube ladder frame chassis and Cooper-influenced all-independent suspension, but the power unit was AC’s own venerable, 2-liter, long-stroke six. This single-overhead-camshaft engine originated in 1919 and with a modest 80bhp (later 100bhp) on tap, endowed the Ace with respectable performance. The AC Ace first appeared at Earls Court in 1953 and epitomised a new era of British post-war sports car production. The owners of AC, Charles and Derek Hurlock, along with AC agent, Ken Rudd, transformed the company’s reputation by taking a racing special and putting it into production, with notable stylistic influences from Italian sports cars of the era. The result was a car that delivered both on the road, and particularly on the track thanks to the input of racing chassis designer John Tojeiro. The Ace boasted all-round independent suspension by transverse springs (the first British sports car to do so), ensuring superb handling with minimal body roll and plenty of feedback. Such was the success of the Ace chas-
sis, it became the foundation for the mighty Shelby Cobras with over three times the power of the original 105bhp, Weller designed, six-cylinder engine. The outdated AC unit eventually made way for the more refined Bristol straight-six, which had evolved from the pre-war BMW 328. The Bristol engine was far more suited to racing, as demonstrated with some success by Cooper, and in its standard form developed 128bhp at 6000rpm. Consequently, it is the Bristol-engined Ace that is most sought after by collectors. The combination of a fine-handling chassis and a decent power-to-weight ratio helped the Ace to numerous successes in production sports car racing; arguably its finest achievement being a first-in-class and seventh overall finish at Le Mans in 1959. Indeed, its basic soundness and versatility were reflected in the fact that relatively few major changes were found necessary when the Ace was endowed with Ford V8 power to create the legendary Cobra. BEX249 was delivered new, finished in Ivory with a Black Interior, in January 1957 to a Major James K Cockrell of Virginia in the United States. Cockrell entered the car into the SCCA National Championship race at the Cumberland racetrack in Maryland, Ohio. The race was won by Carroll Shelby in a Maserati 300S, with Briggs Cunningham a close second in a Jaguar D-Type.
Cockrell was later deployed to Germany and prepared the car for ADAC races in Trier and Wiesbaden in the Spring of 1958. The motor fitted was deemed uncompetitive, so a new Bristol motor (100C687) was fitted before entering the championship, the same engine which is fitted to this day. Cockrell went on to win the 1958 German Championship in the 2 Litre category, and was nominated by the ADAC to enter the Ace into the AvD Nurburgring 1000 Kilometers race on 7th June 1959. Cockrell unfortunately did not finish the race due to an accident, ultimately the 1000 Kilometers was won by Stirling Moss in an Aston Martin DBR1 with Phil Hill and Tony Brooks coming in second and third respectively, both driving Ferrari 250 Testarossas. After the race the AC Ace was returned by Cockrell to his army base, who in a rather distressed state at his result in the 1000 Kilometers agreed to sell the car to another U.S. soldier by the name of Francis Gigliotti. Mr. Gigliotti stored the car for many years, gathering parts to restore the Ace, eventually taking the car back to the United States when he returned many years later. In 2006, whilst Mr. Gigliotti was still alive, the Ace passed hands to a Mr. Stangl who undertook a huge restoration to the condition you see the car in today. Our vendor purchased the car from Mr. Stangl and have kept it in dry conditions and used very lightly ever since. There are very few opportunities to purchase an AC Ace that has raced against the greats of motor racingâ€™s Golden Era of the 1950s, and in this incredible car we have just such an opportunity.
1963 Maserati Sebring Series I Registration Number: EU Registered
Estimate: €200,000 - €230,000
Introduced in 1962, the Sebring was one of the final manifestations of the landmark 3500GT, which had been the linchpin of Maserati’s programme to establish itself as a manufacturer of road cars. Despite numerous racetrack successes that included Juan Manuel Fangio’s fifth World Championship - at the wheel of a 250F - and runner-up spot in the World Sports Car Championship with the fabulous 450S - both in 1957, the marque’s most successful season - Maserati was by that time facing a bleak future. Its parent company’s financial difficulties forced a withdrawal from racing and Maserati’s survival strategy for the 1960s centred on switching production from competition to road models. Built on the short-wheelbase chassis of the spyder and likewise styled by Vignale, the Sebring 2+2 coupé arrived in 1962. By now a five-speed gearbox, four-wheel disc brakes and fuel injection were standard equipment, with automatic transmission, air conditioning and a limited-slip differential available as options. Introduced in 1965, the Sebring Series II came with a 3.7-litre, 245bhp engine while some cars left the factory with 4.0-litre units towards the end of production in 1966, by which time 591 Sebrings had been built, around 400 of which were in the first series. Chassis 1765 is the desirable first series model which has been very nicely restored and sensibly upgraded over the years, with the fitting of carburettors to replace the troublesome Lucas fuel injection system. This beautiful Sebring, delivered to Holland, is finished in the rare colour combination of Navy Blue with a Burgundy leather interior. We understand the bodywork is in very good condition, the engine runs well, in fact the whole mechanical condition of the car is excellent. Offered with Dutch title papers and current German TüV documents, this is a wonderful example of a rare and desirable GT car. A Maserati for the true connoisseur.
1950 Mercedes-Benz 170 SBC cabriolet Last owner for 46 years Registration Number: German Registered

1958 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Matching numbers, Belgian delivered from new One owner for 50 years Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 121040-7503097
Estimate: €100,000 - €120,000
In 1954 Mercedes-Benz had introduced the 300 SL sports car, a ‘Gullwing’ coupé inspired by the German manufacturer’s highly successful 300 Super Leicht series of sports-racers that had spearheaded its return to international competition. Expensive and exclusive, the 300 SL caused a sensation and set new standards for high performance sports cars. Introduced at the same time was a cheaper, less exotic but no less refined sports roadster: the 190 SL. Based on the 180 saloon whose all-independently-suspended running gear it used, the 190 SL did not enter production until January 1955, the delay being caused by alterations aimed at strengthening the saloon’s shortened platform to compensate for the open body’s reduced stiffness. Mounted on a detachable sub-frame together with the four-speed manual gearbox, front suspension and steering, the power unit was a 1,897cc overhead-camshaft four - the first such engine ever to feature in a Mercedes-Benz. Breathing through twin Solex downdraft carburettors, this M121 unit produced 105bhp at 5,700rpm, an output sufficient to propel the 190 SL to 100km/h in 14.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 171km/h. It was also relatively economical. The 190 SL was more comfortable than the typical British sports car, but the fact that its ride was more boulevard than sporting did nothing to deter sales. The model was a big hit in the USA, where many of the slightly fewer than 26,000 produced between 1955 and 1963 found homes. Completed in December 1957, this 190 SL is a rare European-delivered example that was sold new to a Mr. Van den Bergh, who reputedly purchased it at the 1958 Brussels Motor Show. Mr. Van den Bergh kept the car for some 50 years, only selling it in 2008 again to a Belgian enthusiast. The next owner, only its second in almost 60 years, had the 190 SL extensively restored, the colour being changed from weißgrau to silver at the same time. In addition, the engine and gearbox were overhauled and the original blue interior completely refurbished. Presented in beautiful condition, this is exceptional 190 SL with wonderful provenance.

1972 Lamborghini Jamara Series I From The Lamborghini Bull Collection of Dott. Fabio Lamborghini Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 10272
Estimate: €140,000 - €180,000
Ferruccio Lamborghini’s first production car, the Touring-styled 350 GT, was launched at the 1964 Geneva Motor Show featuring a glorious four-cam 3.5-litre V12 engine by Giotto Bizzarrini, which was housed in a chassis the work of Gianpaolo Dallara. The line of front-engined Grand Tourers continued with the 4-litre 400 GT and Islero 2+2s, the Espada four-seater saloon and finally, in 1970, the Jarama, the last of Lamborghini’s front-engined road cars. Launched at the 1979 Geneva Motor Show and named after a region of Spain famous for its fighting bulls, this new 160mph four-seater abandoned Lamborghini’s original spaceframe chassis in favour of a platform-type unitary construction, based on the Espada’s but of shorter wheelbase. An unusual styling feature was the nose with its quadruple headlamps partially obscured by electrically raised covers. The Jarama was styled at Carrozzeria Bertone by Marcello Gandini, the man responsible for the Miura, but with bodies assembled by Marazzi. An improved ‘S’ version, with 365bhp V12 engine, appeared in 1972, while later developments included Torqueflite automatic transmission and power-assisted steering. The car on offer was sold new in Italy on 13/03/1972. Delivered in silver with a black leather interior the car was sold to Germany in 1975, and was duly sent to Auto Kremer in Bonn, know for their excellent Lamborghini restorations. The bodywork and engine have been restored , with supporting photographs and invoices of the restoration. The interior was good and it was chosen not to restore. This Jarama has only covered a mere 200km since this restoration and truly presents an opportunity to aquire what must be one of the best Jamaras in the world, directly from Dott Fabio Lamborghini.
1978 Lamborghini Espada Series III From The Lamborghini Bull Collection of Dott. Fabio Lamborghini Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 9716
Estimate: €110,000 - €150,000
‘Carrozzeria Bertone unveiled one of its motor show sensations at the 1967 Geneva event, the Marzal. This dramatic concept car was seen as an approach to a four-seat Lamborghini… and it turned out to be a forerunner of the Espada, a genuine fourseater and a distinctive 1960s supercar.’ – David Hodges, ‘Lamborghini – The Legend’. Ferruccio Lamborghini’s first production car, the Touring-styled 350GT, had debuted at the 1964 Geneva Motor Show. The work of two of Italy’s most illustrious automobile designers, the 350GT featured a glorious 3.5-litre, four-cam V12 designed by Giotto Bizzarrini, housed in a chassis penned by Gianpaolo Dallara. The 350GT’s four camshafts and all-independent suspension meant that it upstaged the best that Ferrari offered at the time; but to compete with his Maranello rival’s larger models, Lamborghini needed a nominal four-seater and the 4.0-litre 400GT 2+2 duly appeared in 1966. Despite its novice status as an automobile manufacturer, Lamborghini had quickly dispelled any lingering doubts about its ability to compete with the world’s best Gran Turismos. Named after a matador’s sword, the Espada was styled along lines similar to those of the stillborn, rear-engined, six-cylinder Marzal but carried its 4.0-litre, four-cam V12 up front. The latter – first seen in the 400GT and used also by the contemporary Islero – produced 325bhp, an output sufficient to propel the distinctive, Bertone-styled coupé to 150mph. Islero running gear was employed but wedded to a platformtype, semi-monocoque chassis rather than the former’s tubular frame. Introduced in January 1970, the Series II cars came with an extra 25bhp, 155mph top speed, an improved dashboard layout and the option of power assisted steering. The dashboard was revised yet again in late 1972 for the Series III, which also incorporated power steering as standard, up-rated brakes, minor suspension improvements and a restyled front grille. Espada production ceased in 1978 after 1,217 of these imposing cars had been built. This wonderful example has spent over 33 years in single ownership, and forming part of Dott. Lamborghinis collection the car is well known by the Lamborghini owners club. Offered with German papers directly from the collection this car warrants closer inspection by any Lamborghini Connoisseur. Ready to drive and enjoy. 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.

Combining Citröen’s advanced chassis technology and Maserati’s engine know-how, the SM (Série Maserati) featured DS-style hydro-pneumatic suspension, powerassisted all-round load-sensitive disc brakes and fully-powered, self-centering steering that allowed the car to be set up with zero caster, thereby keeping the tires in full contact with the road at all times. Citröen had acquired Maserati in 1968, principally to acquire the latter’s engine technology for its new top-of-the-range Gran Turismo coupé, and the Italian firm responded to the brief with remarkable speed by the simple expedient of chopping two cylinders off its Indy four-cam 90-degree V-8 to create the required V-6. After some juggling of engine dimensions, a capacity of 2,670 cc was settled on for a power output of 170 bhp. Citröen was the world leader in passenger car aerodynamics at the time, and the SM’s class-leading drag coefficient enabled it to reach 140 mph, making it the fastest front-wheel-drive car ever at that time. Fuel injection arrived in 1972, an automatic transmission option became available the following year and the engine was enlarged to 2,974 cc before the model was prematurely axed in 1975 following Citröen’s acquisition by Peugeot. Fondly remembered, these technically advanced and functionally beautiful cars remain highly sought after today. Built in May 1974 and delivered to Citroen dealer Enrico Masi in Prato , Italy in its current gold leaf colour the car was sold to its first owner in May 1975 and spent most of its life in the Tuscan town of Montecatini Terme until recently. Having just two owners from new it was recently (10,00km ago) subject to a engine rebuild. Complete with service books and original manuals , this wonderful Classic French GT comes directly from the collection of Dott. Fabio Lamborghini.
Lamborghini Tractor DL20/25 From The Lamborghini Bull Collection of Dott. Fabio Lamborghini Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 0633
Estimate: â‚Ź40,000 - â‚Ź60,000
Details of Mr. Lamborghiniâ€™s tractor production are usually just a side note to the stories surrounding the 400 GT, Miura, Countach, etc. He was, in fact, a very successful industrialist and the tractors that bear his name are still in production today. Lamborghini was founded in 1948 and were well-known for production of not just tractors, but also of military and industrial engines. Lamborghini Trattori grew quickly, developing many specialized models and becoming one of the largest agricultural manufacturers in Italy. While separate from automotive operations, the tractor business has been steadily successful and still produces specialized equipment for orchards, vineyards and other specialist farms around the world. example has benefitted from a dedicated owner who restored the tractor to its current impressive condition. When taking into consideration that this is made for a more rural purpose, it is indeed a well-engineered machine with plenty of power and reliability. The two-cylinder Diesel engine has plenty of torque to do active duty in the field, but would also be great fun to drive around the property. The belt-driven PTO is designed to run various pieces of farming equipment and is reported to be well-functioning, should one want to explore on his own. This little Lamborghini appears very correct and is finished in the traditional Lamborghini Trattori red on the bodywork, with a grey finish on the chassis and wheel hubs. A cute and appropriate addition to any collection, this DL25 is a great way to remember the roots of Lamborghini before they became immortal with flamboyant supercar design and directly from the collection of Dott. Fabio Lamborghini.
1967 Lamborghini Miura SV Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 3132 Estimate: €1,200,000 - €1,500,000
The first “supercar” from Lamborghini, and perhaps the first supercar the world had ever seen, was the P400 Miura. When it was first unveiled at the 1966 Geneva Salon, its impact was nothing short of extraordinary. Simply stated, the Miura looked like no other on the road, and it marked a paradigm shift in the design of high-performance cars. Its sensuous lines were undoubtedly indebted to the placement of its engine, which was mounted transversely, just behind the passenger compartment. The Miura’s performance also matched its looks, and the car would go on to be the poster child for a petrol-fueled generation. As such, Miuras could often be found in the garages of many of the most fashionable celebrities of the day, including Miles Davis, Rod Stewart, and Frank Sinatra. Marcello Gandini penned the gorgeous design at the age of 27, and it encapsulated the youthful spirit of the age. The car was beautifully styled throughout and had intricate details that always brought a smile to the driver’s face when interacting with the car, such as the shape of the doors, which were supposedly modeled off of the horns of a raging bull. To many, it boasted the perfect automotive silhouette, as it was just as sensual as it was muscular.
The final iteration of the Miura, the SV, featured numerous improvements over the already spectacular P400 S that came before it. The SV featured better handling, thanks to revised suspension, which helped to remove the “front-end lightness” that was so characteristic of the earlier cars; in turn, the rear bodywork was made slightly wider. Perhaps the most notable changes were to the engine, which featured larger carburetors and different cam-timing, as they made the SV much more user-friendly at lower rpms. With its engine producing 385bhp, the SV boasted incredible performance. A sprint to 60mph from a standstill took just 5.8 seconds and its top speed was quoted at 180mph. This beautiful example, an early production model, was despatched new in P400 specification to Oporto, Portugal on 14th September 1967, and sold via the Lamborghini dealer Vecar. After one year ownership it passed to the second keeper,
who owned the car for a further 7 years until 1975. In 1974, shortly after the ultimate ‘SV’ model had been launched, our Miura was returned to Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata factory to become one of very few examples upgraded to full ‘SV’ specification by the works in period. The work included rebuilding the motor, the front and rear chassis sections, brake systems (including brake cooling ducts) and suspension to ‘SV’ specification. Nine-inch wide rear wheels were mounted under a wider ‘SV’ rear body (stamped with nº 750 which was originally fitted to SV5100, the donor to the ‘SVJ’ produced at the factory for a Mr. Lansberg). Upon completion the Miura was sold within the family before being acquired by the next owner in the mid 1980s, who kept the car for a further 26 years. In 2008 chassis ‘3132’ enjoyed a highly comprehensive restoration, after which it was enjoyed on the road for a further four years before being sold by Coys at auction at our London True Greats Sale in 2012. In current ownership our vendor has prepared this beautiful Miura meticulously, with invoices from a marque specialist exceeding 50,000 to support various mechanical works. The Miura is supplied with its original Portuguese Livrete, correspondence and invoices from Lamborghini confirming all works carried out at Santa’Agata in 1974, further invoices for recent refurbishment and maintenance works, a letter of conformity and UK V5C document. Refinished extremely well in Arancio Orange, this is a beautiful example of one of the ultimate versions of Lamborghini’s groundbreaking supercars. 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 Porsche 356 B Cabriolet Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 157767
Estimate: €100,000 - €130,000
Porsche’s Type 356, introduced in 1948, and is acknowledged to be one of the world’s great sports cars. Over a 15-year production run, the handsome and durable 356 evolved from a streamlined little aluminium-bodied coupe powered by a VW-derived, 46hp 1100cc air-cooled flat four to a powerful autobahn burner carrying a complex, two-litre four-cam boxer Carrera engine of 130 horsepower. Its development brought not only coupes, but luxurious cabriolets and more spartan speedsters and roadsters. More than 76,000 examples were made in all by the time production ceased in 1965. The 356B, produced from 1960 through 1963, represents the mid-point in this design’s progression. In what is known as “T5” form, the B introduced new front and rear sheet-metal, while retaining the curved front trunk lid and rounded fend- ers of the 356A series. The B also added some features demanded by American customers, such as raised front and rear bumpers with over-riders to better protect the body from parking mishaps. The headlamps were raised, a larger hood handle added, and front vent windows appeared in the doors. Mechanically, the gearbox and drum brakes were upgraded. A new steering wheel and column refreshed the interior, along with redesigned rear seats. The mid-1962 356 B model was changed to the “T6” body type (twin engine lid grilles, an external fuel filler in the right front wing/fender and a larger rear window in the coupé). With just three owners from new, this wonderful 356 B cabriolet is showing 29,500km recorded on the odometer and has clearly been cherished throughout its lifetime. The first owner held the car for over 40 years and prior to sale we are informed that the car received a comprehensive restoration. The third and current owner bought chassis #157767 in 2012 and informs us that a program of maintenance and mechanical refurbishment has been carried out costing approximately 30,000. This wonderful 356 B, the penultimate Reutter Convertible of that year, also benefits from being fitted with the more powerful Super 90 engine offering brisk performance and an exhilarating drive. A condition report from December 2016 confirms the car as grade 2 and benefits from being offered in the original colour scheme. The car comes with Porsche COA, German registration and valid TUV and would be an enviable addition to any serious collection.
1968 Mercedes Benz 280SL Pagoda Registration Number:
Estimate: €40,000 - €60,000
The 280 featured the same modified W111 chassis with a rear swing axle and independent front suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Power came from a 2.8-liter version of Mercedes’ robust inline-six and used Bosch fuel injection, a combination producing 160 horsepower in US-market variants, which had to be modified slightly to comply with emissions standards. To compensate, the rear-end ratios were changed in these US-market cars to offer greater low-end acceleration. While the 280SL did not offer the performance of the 300SL, it is a very charming model with capable handling and braking thanks to its suspension and all-wheel disc brakes. These roadsters also have one of the most beautiful bodies produced in the 1960s. Thanks to their robust inline-six and their luxurious Mercedes interior, they are wonderful cars to be driven and enjoyed. Delivered new to Europe, this matching numbers and rare manual gearbox 280SL comes from a significant collection in the south of England. Subject to a recent restoration the car is presented in very good overall condition and would prove to be the perfect car for continental touring over the summer months. Realistic reserve.
1961 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark I Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: HBT713613
Estimate: €28,000 - €32,000
This well presented Healey 3000 Mk1 was first delivered in 1961, later being restored to a good standard in the UK. The bodywork in particular is very straight with good panel gaps all round, and we understand the Healey runs and drives very nicely through its overdrive gearbox, demonstrating the amount of careful maintenance which the car has enjoyed over the years. Resplendent in Old English White over Red, with a lovely Red Leather interior and wire wheels, the Healey is offered with full weather protection in the form of side screens and a full tonneau. Supplied with a thick file of invoices and previous MOTs, and on Dutch registration papers, this is a fine example of an ever popular and attractive British sports car.
1988 Porsche 959 Komfort Two Private Owners from New, European Supplied Registration Number: VAT Qualifying
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ95ZHS900023
Estimate: €850,000 - €950,000
Conceived in the early 1980’s as a four-wheel-drive Group B competitor that would showcase Porsche’s advanced automotive technology, the 959 was first displayed in ‘concept car’ form at the 1983 Frankfurt Motor Show, and despite the subsequent abandonment of the events for which it had been intended, entered limited production a couple of years later. Two versions were offered: ‘Sport’ and ‘Komfort’, their names reflecting each model’s level of interior trim. Representing the ultimate in automobile design, the 959 successfully adapted state-of-the art racing technology for road use, and even today its specification remains unparalleled. At the car’s heart was a unique, 2,849cc version of the classic, six-cylinder, air-cooled ‘boxer’ engine equipped with water-cooled, double-overhead-camshaft, four-valve cylinder heads. The latter had been developed initially for the 1981 Le Mans-winning 936 and were further refined on the even more successful 956/962 that triumphed at La Sarthe every year from 1982 to 1987. In 959 specification this formidable twin-turbo-charged unit produced 450bhp, an output which, combined with the lightweight part-composite body’s drag coefficient of just 0.32, proved sufficient to propel the 959 past 195mph and onto the front rank of all-time supercars.
Indeed, at the time of its introduction the 959 was the world’s fastest street-legal production car, despite the weight penalty associated with its complex transmission and other exotic features. The 959’s sophisticated four-wheel-drive six-speed transmission paved the way for that of the Carrera 4; computer controlled, it provided variable torque split with alternative programmes for dry, wet, icy or off-road conditions. There was double wishbone suspension all round, with electrically controlled ride height adjustment; the ABS brakes delivered race-car levels of retardation and the run-flat tyres were monitored for pressure loss, all of which made for a car faster than just about anything else on the road yet, in the best Porsche tradition was comfortable, practical and reliable. With its electric windows and mirrors, climate control, electrically heated seats and superb stereo system, the 959 Komfort rivalled many a limousine for luxury.
While other supercar manufacturers’ offerings were uncompromisingly raw, uncomfortable and hard work to drive, the Porsche 959 managed to surpass them all, combining breath-taking performance with a smooth ride, light controls and full interior equipment (in the Komfort). Rumour has it that Porsche sold the 959 for far less than it cost to produce, regarding the model as a showcase for its engineering expertise. In the UK the 959 was priced at around £145,000 when new (less than half what it cost Porsche to build each one) though speculators drove the price considerably higher. Although its Group B raison d’être had ceased to exist, the Porsche 959 did achieve one major competition victory, René Metge and Dominique Lemoyne winning the gruelling Paris-Dakar Rally in 1986 in their works 959 with similar cars in 2nd and 6th places, while the race-developed 961 variant finished 7th overall at Le Mans that year, winning the IMSA GT2 class and headed only by Group C Porsches, an amazing result for a production based car. In total, fewer than 300 of these exclusive supercars were made in period - the official factory figure is 292, while a further eight were assembled by the factory using the spares stock in 1992/1993. This fabulous example, showing only 22,000 kilometres recorded, was first delivered to Koengen in Germany in June 1988, finished in Metallic Silver with a dark grey leather interior, and fitted with the additional options of heated electric seats, alarm system, and lifting system. The 959 is supplied with a full service history, with the last service having been completed by Porsche Geneva. Offered with the relevant books and tools, this is a stunning example of the most advanced supercar of the 1980’s. Estimate: Note: Interested parties should note that VAT will be applicable at the buyer’s local rate.
2013 Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS Roadster Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: WDDRK7HA8CA008195
Estimate: €160,000 - €200,000
Although the relationship between Mercedes-Benz and AMG goes back 50 years, and they have been official partners for almost 25, the SLS-AMG was the first car designed in-house by the renowned performance tuners. The SLS Roadster and its Coupe sibling were viewed as spiritual successors to the iconic 300SL Roadster and Gullwing models of the 1950s, and immediately took over from the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren in 2010 at the high performance end of the Mercedes model range. The SLS (Sport Leicht Super) was largely assembled by hand, and was powered by what was at the time the most powerful normally aspirated series production engine ever produced. Although based upon the proven (and already potent) 6.2 Litre V8, the engine was modified to such an extent that it was given a new M-series engine code by AMG. Extensive use of lightweight components, balancing, engine remapping and changes to the lubrication system enabled a mighty 583 horsepower to be extracted, which propelled the car to 60 mph in a mere 3.8 seconds and onward to a maximum of 197 mph. In spite of its strong performance credentials, features such as the advanced traction control system, 175 litre boot capacity, heated seats, Thermotronic climate control system and high-speed hood – which took only 11 seconds to erect, and could be used up to speeds of 30 mph – made the AMG-SLS a genuine long distance GT car. The car on offer today has covered a mere 1,600 kilometres with just one owner from new. It is a European specification car, with 7 speed semi-automatic transmission, Bi-Xenon headlights and full AMG/ Bang & Olufsen sound system. Finished in the classic Mercedes colour combination of Silver with black interior and hood, and recently serviced at 1,300 kilometres, it is ready to be enjoyed by the new owner and is sure to become a classic and a sound investment in the coming years. NOTE : Interested parties should be aware that VAT is payable on this vehicle at the local prevailing rate.
1962 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 121041002534
Estimate: €100,000 - €130,000
In 1954, Mercedes displayed a concept at the New York Auto show of a beautiful two-seat roadster with a removable hardtop. This concept came to market in 1955 as the 190SL, a more approachable, less intense sports car compared to the recordbreaking 300SL ‘Gullwing’. While the 190SL features a carbureted 1.9 liter inline four cylinder engine compared to the 300SL’s direct-injected 3 liter slant six, they share basic engine design, suspension system, and level of detail and craftsmanship that defines Mercedes-Benz. The new engine, which shared the same bore and stroke of the 300SL, was paired with dual Solex carburetors and produced 120 horsepower. This powerplant was paired with a fully synchronized 4-speed transmission that sent power to the rear swing axles. The 190SL implemented the same suspension systems as the 300SL, affording it confident handling and drivability. The 190SL is immediately recognizable as a Mercedes, featuring dramatic curves and through yet restrained use of brightwork that defined this era of Mercedes. Many styling cues are borrowed from the 300SL as well, notably the massive three-pointed star in the grille as well as the ‘eyebrows’ over the wheels. While the 190SL did not quite offer the performance of other sports cars of the era, the impeccable quality and attractive styling made the 190 a massive success- selling over 25,000 units before production ceased in 1963. Many of these models were delivered to the United States, where its driving demeanor and elegant styling were highly valued. The 190SL is an important part of the culture of small roadsters in the 1950s, as it demonstrated how luxurious the platform could be. Well sorted throughout, the fine brightwork compliments the beige paintwork nicely. The black convertible top and window are equally well presented. Mechanically, this car is in fine working order and is confirmed to be matching numbers. This 190SL presents a rare opportunity to acquire a great example one of the most stylish roadsters of the 1950s with increased driving pleasure.
1971 Ferrari Dino 246 GT Berlinetta Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 02130
Estimate: €250,000 - €300,000
It was the need for a production-based engine for the new Formula 2 that had prompted the introduction of a ‘junior’ Ferrari, the Dino 206 GT, at the Turin Motor Show in 1967. The latest in a line of Dino V6 ‘quad-cam’ engines stretching back to the late 1950s, the new unit proved as successful on the racetrack as in the showroom, Derek Bell and Ernesto Brambilla both winning races in the European Championship, while Andrea de Adamich triumphed in the 1968 Argentine Temporada series. Building on experience gained with its successful limited edition Dino 206 S sports-racer of 1966, Ferrari retained the racer’s mid-engined layout for the road car but installed the power unit transversely rather than longitudinally. A compact, aluminium-bodied coupé of striking appearance, the Pininfarina-styled Dino – named after Enzo Ferrari’s late son Alfredino Ferrari and intended as the first of a separate but related marque – was powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cam V6 driving via an in-unit five-speed transaxle.
The motor’s 180bhp was good enough to propel the lightweight, aerodynamically-efficient Dino to 142mph, and while there were few complaints about the car’s performance, the high cost enforced by its aluminium construction hindered sales. A 2.4-litre version on a longer wheelbase – the 246 GT – replaced the original Dino 206 in late 1969. Built by Scaglietti, the body was now steel, and the cylinder block cast-iron rather than aluminium, but the bigger engine’s increased power – 195bhp at 7,600rpm – adequately compensated for the weight gain. The 246 was built in three series, referred to internally as “L,” “M,” and “E.” Series “L” cars, produced in late 1969 through 1970, have road wheels with a single knock-off spinner, front quarter bumpers that extend into the grille opening, and head rests mounted on the rear bulkhead.
A short run of Series “M” cars were produced in early 1971; these had five-bolt road wheels, an internal rear boot lid release catch, and seatmounted headrests. Series “E” cars were produced from early 1971 to the end of production in 1974. They incorporated all the changes to the Series “M” examples, together with further modifications to the engine and gearbox and detail revisions. While not quite as fast in a straight line as its larger V12-engined stablemates, the nimble Dino was capable of showing almost anything a clean pair of heels over twisty going terrain. Though Enzo was intent on marketing the Dino as a separate, lesser marque, these beloved cars are today considered “proper” Ferraris in every respect. This “M” series Dino 246 GT received a frame off restoration with all components having been refurbished and rebuilt mechanically and cosmetically. The result is a mint condition Ferrari 246 GT in all respects, inside, outside and from any angle. The work done on the car is documented with photographic evidence and available in the cars file, as is a fresh condition and valuation report, dated 14th February 2018, showing a value of 380,000, we are told by the vendor. Chassis #02130 also benefits from being the last produced 246 GT out of the sought after M-series and therefore a wonderful piece of Ferrari history. Coming to us with a believed genuine total mileage on its odometer of approximately 45,000 kms and with German registration documents, this Ferrari Dino with superb black leather interior is very reasonably reserved, considering its condition.
1964 Mercedes 220SEB Coupe Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 11102110018740
Estimate: €35,000 - €45,000
This matching numbers 220 SEB Coupe was delivered to the USA, and registered to its first owner in 1964. The 220 was in long term ownership from 1989 in Arizona before being brought back into the Netherlands in 2006. The rust-free bodywork has benefitted from an older restoration and repaint in its original shade of 050 white (Sonderlackierung), and still presents very nicely in contrast to the black leather interior. With the optional sliding sunroof open and all windows down, you could be forgiven for the sense you are driving in a full convertible. The combination of a smooth straight six motor fed by mechanical fuel injection, and driven through a smooth and precise four-speed manual gearbox, makes this a real joy to drive.
1982 Ferrari 400i Manual Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 36145
Estimate: €60,000 - €70,000
One of a few of its type, this stylish 400i was fitted with a rare manual gearbox, a more desirable option and very much in keeping with the Ferrari’s Grand Turismo status. The body we understand is rust-free and the panel gaps are very good. We understand the engine runs well and sounds very strong with lots of power, the braking and steering are very tight, and with the fitting of a new clutch the gears change smoothly. The original tan leather interior is very nicely preserved, as is the headlining and dashboard. Very attractively finished in Ferrari Blu Chiaro with a tan interior, this 400i really is a GT in the truest sense.
1972 Lancia Fulvia HF Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 818740002612
Estimate: €35,000 - €40,000
The introduction of the Fulvia saloon in 1963 maintained Lancia’s reputation for innovation in automobile design. Designed by Antonio Fessia, the boxy-styled Appia replacement featured an all-new, narrow-angle, V4, overhead-camshaft engine; front wheel drive; independent front suspension by double wishbones; and disc brakes all round. A 2+2 coupé on a shorter wheelbase was launched in 1965. Though mechanically similar, the beautiful newcomer had all the visual presence its progenitor lacked and came with a 1,216cc engine producing 80bhp. In 1967 the model was up-rated with the 1,298cc, 85bhp engine, becoming the Fulvia Rallye 1.3. Tuned, lightweight ‘HF’ versions provided increased performance and formed the basis of the works’ highly successful rally programme that saw the Fulvia HF1600 secure Lancia’s first Manufacturers’ World Championship in 1972. This very nicely presented Fulvia 1600 HF benefits from very strong bodywork with even panel gaps, and an extremely well preserved interior with its original HF seats. The powerful 1600cc motor runs and sounds delightful, driven through a smooth transmission and with excellent clutch and braking systems. We are a big fan of these Fulvias, and we are sure this well sorted example will prove a huge amount of fun for the next owner.
1990 BMW M5 Saloon Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WBSHD91040BK02704
Estimate: €19,000 - €23,000
Rolling off the BMW production line on 9th March 1990 to its first German customer, this early M5 was specified with a number of options such as an alarm system, sunroof, sun-blinds, ski sack, a mirror package, heated seats, climate control, and a BMW Bavaria CD player with hi-fi speaker. Finished in Macao Blau Metallic with a full black leather interior, and showing a mere 82,000 kilometres recorded, this is a good example of BMW’s genre-defining classic; a modern executive car with truly supercar performance.
1954 Cadillac Fleetwood Imperial Presidential Limousine Former presidential sedan for President Dwight Eisenhower Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €30,000 - €40,000
Dwight Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States, was considered a car lover and enjoyed several Cadillacs during two terms in office, from 1953 to 1961. Although Eisenhower’s security consultants could only dream of the technical finesses of today’s presidential sedan, a bulletproof vehicle with various small flaps and holes through which to retaliate to gun attacks was deemed ideal. And so in 1954 this Series 75 Fleetwood Imperial was pressed into service. In terms of ride comfort, the ‘54 Cadillac was truly presidential; wonderfully plush red velvet seats, acres of legroom, a high roof line so you could almost walk straight out of the car, additional extra-bright interior lighting so the president could be appropriately staged for photography, and when privacy was needed a large division buzzed up at the touch of a button. Eisenhower’s Fleetwood had a longer career, even if the president only used the car for two years. As soon as his next car was ready, he gifted the ‘54 Fleetwood during a state visit to Bolivia’s serving president, Victor Paz Estenssoro. Whilst Eisenhower never had to rely on the armour of his limousine, the Bolivian could only govern because of the thick steel plates in the doors and centimetre thick bulletproof glass in the windows. Shortly after receiving the Cadillac, Estenssoro was the target of an assassination attempt. Three of his bodyguards died from the machine gun fire of the attackers, but Estenssoro survived unharmed. The gun holes are still very visible on the windows, although the damage to the bodywork was repaired some years ago. Around 30 years ago the Cadillac was imported from Bolivia to Germany, where it resided for a number of years in a museum. Relieved of its duty at the museum and presented in running order, this Fleetwood is not only one of the most luxurious cars of the 1950’s, but also one with a fascinating past which it still wears to the current day.
1973 Porsche 911 2.4S Targa Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 9113310293
Estimate: €115,000 - €135,000
Delivered new in Belgium through D’Ieteren in 1973, this European specification example has remained in Belgium and France for the entirety of its life. Still retaining its matching numbers engine, the car is a wonderfully original, honest and accident free example finished in the very desirable colour combination of Oxford blue with black leather interior. Mechanically the car is ready to go and its engine described to run strong. The interior can be described as original with the appropriate amount of patina giving the car great character.

Offered with its original jack and owner’s manual, alongside a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and its original plaques from D’Ieteren, this car represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a timeless, matching numbers Belgian delivered top of the range 911 2.4S Targa.
1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFAA02A5B0036357
Estimate: £€55,000 - €65,000
Produced initially with fibreglass bodywork – the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari, the Scaglietti-built 308 GTB used steel after April 1977. Further developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and, finally, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder on the Quattrovalvole model in 1982. An exhilarating driver’s car and a Ferrari purist’s delight, the 308 GTSi and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello, with over 12,000 sold. Presented in the classic combination of Rosso Corsa with a contrasting Beige leather interior, this is a great example of an increasingly desirable car which remains very affordable when compared with other Italian exotica. The 308 is generally accepted as one of Ferrari’s all-time greatest road cars, and with prices on the rise, this is a great way into Ferrari ownership. Offered with good service history and original books.
2011 Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0 German delivered from new 6000 kilometers recorded with full history Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ99ZBS785161
Estimate: â‚Ź390,000 - â‚Ź430,000
In April 2011, rumours of a 4.0 litre version of the 997 GT3 RS started appearing in various automotive publications, soon followed by supposed spy shots and rendered images. Eventually, Porsche revealed that they were making the 911 GT3 RS 4.0, the very final evolution of the 997 featuring a 4.0 litre engine. The engine itself features the crankshaft from the RSR with increased stroke dimensions (from 76.4 mm to 80.4 mm). This has increased the power to 500 PS (368 kW; 493 hp) at 8250 rpm and 460 N m (339 lbf ft) of torque at 5750 rpm. Chassis development has been influenced by the GT2 RS and uses parts sourced from other RS 911s. Front dive planes give additional downforce up front. The car weighs in at 1370 kg, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 365 bhp per ton. Only 600 cars were built. Each car is individually numbered.
This being the final evolution of the highly sought after 997 GT3 series these very special 4 litre cars have proved a highly rewarding investment and maintained their collectability status year on year since.
First supplied via the Porsche Factory Collection in 2011, this stunning GT3 4.0, finished in black with silver decals, was registered to its original German owner in July 2011, later joining a small UK-based Porsche collection. The GT3 was well specified from new with a number of options such as black leather and alcantara interior, Carrera GT seats, front axle lift, Sports Chrono package, also PASM and PSM suspension packages. A full list of options is available upon request.
Our vendor, a fastidious collector and racer, has stored the car very carefully and used it lightly. Showing a mere 6,000 kilometers from new, and offered with Full Service History (the most recent at JZM Porsche in December 2017 at 5,985 kilometers) and with all relevant books, this is one of the very best of this model available on the market today.
1999 Ferrari 550 Maranello Two owners from new with full history Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFZR49B000114353
Estimate: €95,000 - €110,000
Firmly placed in Ferrari’s history as one of their finest big GTs, the 550 Maranello’s combination of its elegant Pininfarina lines and legendary front mounted 12-cylinder engine, meant that these cars had the potential to become instant classics, following in the footsteps and sharing the DNA of its forebear, the 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’. With modern styling cues, a 5.5-litre V12 engine producing around 485bhp and a reported top speed of 199mph, the 550 Maranello was a seriously quick motor car, The six-speed gearbox combined with a slightly more even torque curve meant that power delivery was a little less frenetic, and excellent weight distribution combined with the 550’s delightful road manners were all factors in the car becoming the perfect ‘European Grand Tourer’. The Ferrari 550 Maranello was the return of the front engined Ferrari’s and this 23 years after the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Finished in Nero (black) with a matching Nero leather interior, this original German-delivered car was first registered in January 1999 via Ferrari dealer Auto Becker. In 2002 and with 19,000 kilometers recorded the Ferrari went to its second and final owner in Sweden. During his 15 year ownership the Ferrari has clearly been cherished and maintained very well. In the book pack we see a full file with original service book and invoices to support the low mileage of 47,000 kms from new. From 2002 to 2013 we also see yearly technical controls, service invoices and stamps in the service book for works completed. If you are seeking a low mileage 550 Maranello in the best colour combination, with only two owners, and full and correct service history, then this is without doubt the one to have.
1967 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series II Rare Rossa Cordoba Under 42,000 miles Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 8975
Estimate: €250,000 – €300,000
The 330 GT 2+2 was launched at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1964 as an intended replacement for the successful 250 GTE. It was powered by the 209 engine previously used in the 400 Superamerica, which with various improvements but slight detuning now yielded around 330bhp. The wheelbase was about two inches longer than that of the 250, and Koni adjustable shock absorbers were fitted as standard. The bodywork of the 330 was altogether ‘sweeter’ and more essential than that of its predecessor, and had a particularly attractive sharpness of line. The car was also spacious and comfortable, living up well to its ‘GT’ denomination. Paul Frere, the noted Belgian racing driver and automotive journalist, road tested a 2+2 late in 1966. He came away suitably impressed: “In handling, this car is exactly like all Ferraris which I have driven before … It is close to being as neutral as one could want… But the most impressive feature of the handling of the 330 is the solidness with which it changes direction, particularly in s-bends, where it tracks with about the same precision as a modern race car.” This lovely matching numbers Series II single headlamp example, finished in its rare original Rosso Cordoba with black interior was delivered new in 1967 to its US owner. The car was believed to stay in the United States for around the next 30 years before being imported to France around 1994. The car was sold to a new owner in 1997, already restored and showing 36,000 miles on the odometer. In 2016 the current owner purchased the car and set about restoring, including putting the car back to its original colour or Rosso Cordoba. The engine at this time was overhauled, including tuning and replacing of rocker cover seals along with brake callipers. Now displaying a mileage of just under 42,000 miles, the vendor has noted ‘ the famous V12 engine with triple carburettors proved very versatile, driving smoothly even at low revs’ on a recent drive. This stunning GT will be delivered with ‘Original documents available’ and its Ferrari cover, only requiring a new garage. These iconic Italian sports cars are much sought after, and this 2+2 is no exception. These Ferraris were the envy of many in the 1960’s, and remain so to this day. 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.
1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 10704312005146
Estimate: €13,000 - €17,000
The SL’s of this era (the 107 chassis) really established themselves as an icon of quality and success on the Continent as well as the Americas. Unlike the previous SL range, these cars were rugged and durable and could accumulate high mileage and still remain reliable with just the most basic of care. Volume production of the first R107 car, the 350 SL, started in April 1971 alongside the last of the W113 cars; the 350 SLC followed in October. The early 1971 350SL’s are very rare and were available with an optional 4 speed fluid coupling automatic gearbox. This original unrestored 350SL was first delivered in 1972, finished in Signal Red with a black leather interior. The SL presents very nicely with even panel gaps and a good paint finish. Offered with all taxes paid this is a fine example of this timeless open top sports tourer, not to be missed.
1954 Jaguar XK120 SE OTS Matching numbers late production Special Equipment Roadster Registration Number: EU Taxes paid
Chassis Number: S-675055
Estimate: €75,000 - €90,000
It was at the 1948 London Motor Show that Jaguar virtually threw the sports car world into turmoil with its stunning XK120. Here was a car with incredible style and looks, a powerful six cylinder engine installed in an outstanding chassis and a remarkably low price, a quarter that of a V12 Ferrari, but with similar performance. This wonderful XK120 SE OTS still retains not only its original inline-six 3.4 litre engine but also its 4-speed manual gearbox. As a Special Equipment example, the car received several trim and performance upgrades over the standard XK120, which included increased power output, higher lift camshafts, stiffer suspension and a dual exhaust system. Sold with an original owner’s manual and period tri-bar headlights which are joined by Special Equipment fog lamps, the engine is said to start quickly and run well. This example was reportedly used to attend the 2007 and 2008 British Invasion events in Vermont, which involved round trips of nearly 600 miles each time. Recently fitted with new brake lines, brake pads, cylinders and brand new canopy.
1956 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 1210426502591
Estimate: â‚Ź100,000 - â‚Ź110,000
Stylistically evocative of the mighty 300SL, but with a slightly less complex drive train, the 190SL remains among the most desirable roadsters of its era. The prototype was first shown at the 1954 New York Auto Show, with the 190SL produced between May 1955 and February 1963. 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 120hp with twin-choke dual Solex carburettors, the four-cylinder engine block was based on the six-cylinder engine of the 300SL. Teamed with a four-speed manual gearbox, this endowed the sleep aerodynamic and comparatively light 190SL that boasted a top speed of 115mph and a respectable 0-60 time of 13.0 seconds. This beautiful matching numbers first series Mercedes 190SL was built in June of 1956, finding its first owner via the Mercedes Distributor of Los Angeles, California. Fitted with twin Weber carburettors which offer more power than the Solex items, our example has benefitted from an older restoration but still presents in good overall condition. The Mercedes is offered with a data card from the Mercedes Classic Center, which verifies this is indeed a matching numbers car. The 190SL was and is still very attractive as the more affordable alternative to the exclusive 300SL, and this nicely presented example finished in black with a bordeaux red leather interior, is no exception.
2010 Porsche 997 GT2 RS 1 one 500 produced worldwide European delivered, c.10,000 kilometres from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WP0ZZZ99ZBS776208
Estimate: €350,000 - €400,000
On May 4, 2010, an RS variant was announced to German dealers in Leipzig. The GT2 RS develops 620 PS (456 kW; 612 hp) and 700 N·m (516 lb·ft) of torque and weighs 70 kg (150 lb) less than the standard GT2, allowing for a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph) and 0–100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration of 3.5 seconds. It was the fastest and the most powerful 911 built of its generation. According to Porsche Motorsports manager Andreas Preuninger, the RS was conceived around 2007 as a skunk-works effort. The 727 code number selected for the project corresponds to one of the Nissan GT-R’s lap times around the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife. When the dust settled, Porsche claimed that test driver Timo Kluck had supposedly eclipsed that target by an impressive nine seconds. A total of only 500 cars were built worldwide. Each car is individually numbered. The quality and scarcity of these cars has maintained their excellent investment value and collectability status year on year since originally coming on sale.
First registered in late 2010 to Norway, this fabulous GT2 RS has more recently formed part of a UK-based Porsche collection. During its time in the UK the GT2 has been serviced by leading marque specialist JZM Porsche, sharing garage space and driving time with our vendor’s GT3 RS 4.0. Our vendor, a keen Porsche collector and racer, buys the very best cars he can find and then keeps them stored in the perfect environment and used lightly. As such the GT2 is in excellent condition in all respects, and of course is supplied with the relevant book packs and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The GT2 was fitted from new with a number of desirable options, a full list of which are available upon request. Presented in Carrera White with black leather and Alcantara interior, and showing c. 10,000 kilometres from new, this is a collectors grade Porsche of the highest standard.
Desirable factory options include: Black Leather & Alcantara Interior 6-Speed Manual Transmission Air Conditioning PCCB Ceramic Brakes PCM 3 Navigation Module Sound Package Upgraded Carbon Folding Bucket Seats Sport Chrono Package Plus Exterior Package In Carbon Carbon Centre Air Vent Door Entry Guards In Carbon With Logo Decorative Dashboard Trim In Carbon Carbon Trim On Belt Opening In B-pillar Rear Section Of Centre Console In Carbon Porsche Crest Embossed In Headrests Side Air Vent In Carbon On-Board Computer PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) Electrically Adjustable Heated Door Mirrors CD Compartment PSM Porsche Stability Management Tyre Pressure Monitoring System Xenon Lighting System.
1964 Volvo P1800S Very early “Bull Horn” bumper model Registration Number: EU Taxes paid
Chassis Number: 1604365249
Estimate: €32,000 - €38,000
On offer here is one of the very rare early ‘Bull Horn’ bumper examples that features gorgeous over-rider styled bumpers and more stylish chromework around the car. This particular car is one of the first to leave the production line in Sweden. Powered by a B18 inline-four paired to a 4-speed manual with overdrive, this car was in the care of its previous custodian for six years in which time has benefitted from a refurbished heating system, aftermarket brake servo and a new radiator, clutch and tires. Last serviced in December 2017 its 1.8 litre engine is believed original, its twin SU carburetors were overhauled in December 2016. Other work performed at that time included a new brake safety switch, throttle cables and clips, all flexible brake hoses, front brake pads, and washer nozzles. The engine is said to run well and the brake servo added by the previous owner improves the cars braking performance significantly. Arguably the most beautiful Volvo produced, this early example is not to be confused with the later and less stylish examples.
1962 Porsche 356B 1600 Previously owned by Porsche Club USA president for 54 years. Matching numbers engine comprehensively rebuilt Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 211752
Estimate: €60,000 - €70,000
This wonderful 356 was owned for 54 years by a Porsche Club of America president who entered it in the PCA-sponsored Viaje a Mexico event in 1967. #211752 still retains its numbers-matching 1,600cc engine and the Karmann-built body, which was repainted only once in its original colour of Champagne yellow, which contrasts nicely with its brown leather upholstery. In recent years the car has received a number of works to its mechanics including an engine rebuild and the fitment of a new clutch. The car has benefited from an engine rebuild, with new pistons, cylinders, bearings, push rod tubes, and other replacement items. Cylinder heads were resurfaced and received new valves, springs, and guides. The 4-speed manual transmission received a new clutch disc, pressure plate, and release bearing. Other concurrent work included stripping and re-sealing of the fuel tank, carburettor and fuel pump rebuilds, new oil lines and gaskets, new ignition parts, and more. Approximately 1,000 miles have reportedly been added since and the seller notes that the car drives beautifully and with good oil pressure.
1986 Porsche 928 DP Motorsport Series III For sale from the family of the first owner Recent €25,000 refurbishment Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: MRE843ZZZ9ZZ65841404
Estimate: €45,000 - €55,000
Although the DP 935 conversion, based on the Porsche 911 Turbo (930), was DP Motorsport’s best-selling car, it was not the only spectacular Porsche conversion offered by the company from Overath. The Porsche 928, Porsche’s most exclusive top-end model in the 1980’s, was also personalised by DP by means of a rather unsubtle, but very spectacular wide body kit. The DP Motorsport program for the Porsche 928 was introduced in 1984. To put it simple: the DP Motorsport version of the Porsche 928 was wide, extremely wide: almost 2 metres. The wider body of the DP 928 consisted of all new bodywork including new front bumper with large air-intakes, much wider front wings, side skirts which led up to the side streaked rear fenders, house rear wheels with huge 285mm section tyres. This new aerodynamic body resulted in a weight reduction close to 300kg. DP Motorsport developed the model over the years, with improvements to the design of the front bumper, and in later cars the pop-up headlamps were replaced with air intakes. Then there’s the rear bumper, the early version having both the DP and Porsche logos engraved in the plastic, the later version just had the DP logo. Rims were usually the extra wide Fuchs wheels, but in the late 1980’s OZ Futura rims were also fitted. Overall cost of the DP 928 conversion was 40.000 DM in 1984, which included the complete DP Motorsport bodykit, the special Fuchs wheels and new paintwork. Not included were a more sporty suspension which (in combination with the wider tires) significantly improved road handling of the Porsche 928 (at a cost of an extra 5.000 DM). Although there was a 370bhp engine modification available, the new design and aerodynamics were the most interesting additions to the model. This stunning example of the DP Motorsport 928 was ordered by our vendor’s father new in 1986, who bought the car directly from Josep Zirkelbach at the DP Factory in Overath, Sweden. The 928 was highly specified with a number of extras, a special green leather interior, and expensive magnesium BBS Le Mans 16 inch wheels on each corner. After five years of ownership our vendor’s father sold his beloved 928 privately, much to the dismay of his son, who in 2004 started to track down the family’s old 928. He found the car and after three weeks of negotiations with the then owner, our vendor finally managed to acquire back his family’s car. At the time the 928 had covered a mere 23,000 kilometres, and now 14 years later shows only a total of 75,000 kilometres recorded. The 928 has just benefited from a program of refurbishment, including a full repaint, at a cost of c. 25,000, and is now ready to be enjoyed to the full by its next lucky owner. With its Metallic Black paintwork, white and silver bonnet stripes and green leather interior, this DP really is period perfect. We have noticed ever increasing interest in period tuner conversions of German and Italian sports and GT cars in recent years. As such we feel this excellent example, with known history from new, really does merit further 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.
1989 Ford GT 40 by GTD Delivery mileage - 80 miles only Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 15585
Estimate: €120,000 - €150,000
A decade on from its final Le Mans win, the GT40 had become firmly established as one of the all-time great classic sports cars, leading to an increased demand for unmolested originals and the start of a replica-building industry. With a mere 107 GT40’s being constructed at Ford Advanced Vehicles’ Slough factory between 1966 and 1972, it is hardly surprising that a cottage industry of independent manufacturers arose to satisfy the continuing demand for replicas of Ford’s charismatic Le Mans winner. Founded in 1984 by Ray Christopher, GT Developments soon established itself as one of the foremost manufacturers of accurate GT40 replicas, over 600 of which have been produced over the years. Autosport and Autocar magazines tested an original, GTD-built example in 1989. The former had this to say: ‘An original GT40 is priceless, but an equally charismatic alternative is the GTD40. The pair are indistinguishable from five paces, let alone 50, so faithful is GTD’s replica even to the discerning eye. The GTD is no “kit car”, but a thoroughbred in every sense.’ The car on offer here went straight into a superb collection after having been built and to this date was only driven for less than 80 miles, which is indeed the cars delivery mileage. Freshly serviced and ready to be used, this amazing sports / racing car with its 5 litre V8 engine is still in as new condition and offered at a small fraction of the price of a genuine GT 40. Simply superb!
1985 Porsche 930 Turbo Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ93ZFS000429
Estimate: €75,000 - €85,000
According to Porsche Kardex, this car is a European (German) model, delivered new to Germany on 27th February 1985. Importantly, the car is a complete matching numbers example, in A1A1 black with full black leather interior and electric sunroof. The Porsche was exported to Japan and returned to Germany on 4th September 2015 as documented in its Unbedenklichkeitsbescheinigung of same date. Back in Germany the car was cosmetically restored with a fully photo-documented re-spray in its original colour and mechanically tuned as necessary. This magnificent Porsche sits on polished Fuchs wheels and is further equipped with air conditioning, power windows, electrical seat adjustments, electric mirrors, fog lights and radio. Its odometer reads a total mileage of ca. 71,000km, which is believed to be genuine. A recent valuation and condition report is available in the history file showing this example is very realistically reserved.
1964 Alfa Romeo 2600 Superleggera Spider by Touring Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: AR191516
Estimate: €90,000 - €110,000
This early Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider has been comprehensively restored in 2016. Its mechanics were overhauled in many areas including both axles, brake system, engine, gearbox, carburettors and more. The cars body has received a respray in its original colour of light ivory, the wonderfully original and lightly patinated black interior has been left untouched. The car furthermore comes with Dutch registration papers and clean TÜV report from 30.06.2016, enabling the car to be registered in Germany as a historic vehicle. Described by its vendor to be in excellent condition in all respects, this beautiful big Alfa Romeo Spider is sensibly reserved and not to be missed.
1988 Porsche 944 Turbo Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ95ZJN150504
Estimate: €16,000 - €20,000
This excellent manual Porsche 944 Turbo comes with full Italian registration documents and a fresh condition and valuation report. Beautifully finished in gleaming black with superb ivory leather interior and carpeting it also boasts air-conditioning and a sunroof. The overall condition, including engine bay and boot compartment, shows a very tidy and smart Porsche which is accident free and proving to be favourable in today’s market.
1983 Porsche 911 Turbo Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ93ZD5000726
Estimate: €60,000 - €70,000
Borrowing the flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler from the Carrera model, the Turbo had aggressive looks to match the performance. It also incorporated the most luxurious interior yet seen in a 911, with leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. This matching numbers example, finished in Zinn Metallic with a black leather interior, has benefitted from a previous engine rebuild and is offered with Porsche Geburtsurkunde. We feel a very reasonably priced turbo in the current marketplace.
1973 Triumph TR6 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ICR5490L
Estimate: €15,000 - €20,000
The Triumph TR6 was the best-selling Triumph in history when production ended in 1976, but was later surpassed by the TR7. More than 94,000 TR6’s were built, ninety per cent of them to US specification. The TR6 was a refined sports car. It featured pile carpets on floors and boot, plush-looking bucket seats, a lovely wooden dashboard and a full complement of instrumentation. In the US, it featured the six-cylinder engine that was carried over from the TR250, while the UK version had a more powerful fuel-injected engine from the TR5 that included the Lucas mechanical fuel injection system. It traces its lineage back to the four-cylinder Triumphs: TR4, TR4A, TR3/TR3A and TR2. This stylish six-cylinder sports car is regarded by some as the last true Triumph. The TR6 presented here was delivered in 1973, finished in Triumph Pure White with black leatherette seats. The interior has the original wooden dashboard with original steering wheel. The Triumph is said to drive very well, with its powerful injection motor and optional overdrive gearbox. If you are seeking an honest TR6 in its original specification then this could well be the car for you. The TR6 is offered with Dutch registration papers.
1989 Porsche 911 Speedster Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: WPOEB091XKS173527
Estimate: €150,000 - €200,000
In 1989 Porsche reintroduced one of their most iconic body styles – the Speedster. This uncompromising variant hadn’t been offered since 1959, a time when 356s were rolling out of the factory and the 911 was still five years from inception. The first 911 Speedster was displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1987 but it would be 16 months before production actually began in January 1989. Regular 911 Cabriolet body shells were used for the mechanically standard Speedster, these being equipped with a cut-down, more steeply raked aluminium framed windscreen and special frameless one-piece side windows. Both the standard narrow-body and wider Turbo shell were available in most markets although bizarrely only the latter could be specified in North America and Germany. Inside, the seat rails were dropped by 20mm, the seats themselves having been a combination of Sport backs with standard lower sections. The rear seats were disposed of and the vacant area carpeted like the Club Sport, an optional storage box (again like that of the CS) having been a sensible upgrade. A manual heater and wind-down windows were fitted as standard. Only 2065 Speedsters were built in total all of which in 1989. This wonderful speedster is considered a most prized possession by its current custodian who describes the car to be in excellent condition in all respects. Offered with a swath of history records that follow it through the years, this meticulously looked-after G-series speedster has remained with its same owner in Germany since 2005. Having spent all but one year of its life in Germany, and with a very modest c.55,000 km recorded, this example which is finished in arguably the most desirable colour combination of Zermatt silver over black interior, is one of the nicest examples on offer in today’s market.
1964 Aston Martin DB5 Saloon Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: DB5/1447/R
Estimate: Refer Department
To many observers the Aston Martin DB5 is the epitome of the companyâ€™s models during the David Brown era, boasting both beauty and refined high performance. It is also perhaps the best known Aston Martin in the world, having starred in the James Bond films Goldfinger and Thunderball, complete with machine guns and other gadgetry. In evolution terms the DB5 is a Series V DB4 but with a 4.0 rather than 3.7 litre engine, its coachwork embodying detail changes; it thus featured similar stunning styling from Touring of Milan, incorporating DB4 GT-style faired-in headlamps, with aluminium panels attached to a lightweight steel frame using Touringâ€™s Superleggera method of construction. Underneath the platform chassis used independent coil spring wishbone front suspension with a live rear axle located by Watt linkage and parallel trailing arms. Disc brakes were fitted all round, but the Girling items of the DB4 GT rather than the DB4â€™s Dunlop discs.
Following its launch in July 1963 in saloon and convertible forms the DB5 received much praise, not least for its performance. A maximum of 148mph in standard trim, allied to 0-60 and 0-100mph in 7.1 and 16.9 seconds respectively, made the DB5 one of the fastest cars available and a match for the very best from Europe. Its production, however, was fairly short-lived, ending in September 1965 after 1,021 had been made; of these only 123 were Convertibles while just 65 had the Vantage engine. This very interesting DB5 Saloon was delivered new on 19th February 1964, finished in Sierra Blue with a contrasting grey connolly leather interior, and optioned with a sliding roof, wireless radio and heater. By the late 1990s the Aston was advertised for sale at Aston Martin specialist Nicholas Mee of London at 57,500 miles, selling the DB5 to Fawaz Al Hasawi, businessman and former owner of Nottingham Forrest football club.
The sale was completed on the basis that the car was refinished to “James Bond specification”, as such the DB5 was repainted in Silver Birch and the interior retrimmed in black leather. Al Hasawi kept the DB5 for a number of years as part of his collection, during which time he entrusted maintenance and repair work to Aston Service London and specialists Ian Mason and Trinity Engineering, supported by invoices on file totalling c. £65,000. The DB5 was later sold in 2015 to our current vendor via the specialist dealer Movendi in Duesseldorf, Germany, at which point it had been converted to left hand drive specification. Our vendor, a very keen James Bond enthusiast, decided to recreate the Goldfinger car with most of Q’s associated weapons and gadgets, and as such he entrusted a London-based specialist with the work. Revolving number plates were fitted to the front and rear of the car, very authentic “machine guns” spitting real flames appear from the grille at the flick of a switch, and a rear mounted “smoke gun” creates the desired smoke screen where necessary. Showing now c.60,000 miles recorded, and offered with a current and older UK V5 documents, a file of servicing a repair works completed, copy of original build sheet, and a number of MoT certificates dating to the 1990s, this is a wonderful proposition for the serious Bond fan.
1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 1R10362
Estimate: €70,000 - €80,000
The Jaguar E-Type (a.k.a. Jaguar XK-E) is a British sports car, which was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd. between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricing established the marque as an icon of 1960s motoring. More than 70,000 E-Types were sold. The Series 2 introduced a number of design changes, largely due to U.S. design legislation. The most distinctive feature is the absence of the aerodynamic glass headlight covers, which impacted several other imported cars, like the Citroën DS, as well. Unlike other cars, this retrograde step was applied worldwide for the E-Type. Other hallmarks of Series 2 cars are a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and tail lights below the bumpers, better cooling aided by an enlarged “mouth” and twin electric fans, and uprated brakes. New seats were fitted, which purists claim lacked the style of the originals but were certainly more comfortable.. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned; rocker switches that met US health and safety regulations were instated for toggle switches. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a more industrial “ribbed” appearance. According to its Jaguar Heritage Certificate of December 2016, this E-Type was exported in September 1969 to New York. Then finished in sable, the car received some restoration in 2016 having returned to Europe. Now presented in beautiful black livery with new black seating and new black hood, the car looks stunning. Reportedly un-welded underneath, driving as it should with a smooth gear change, it has also been finished to European specification; making it easy to register it in the EU. This E-Type roadster comes with the aforementioned Heritage Certificate, customs documents and the original Operating, Maintenance and Service Handbook. A wonderful opportunity to acquire the most quintessential of British sports cars that is ready to be enjoyed.
1952 Mercedes-Benz 220 A Cabriolet Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 18701209014/52
Estimate: €105,000 - €125,000
The Frankfurt Motor Show in the spring of 1951 saw the return of MercedesBenz to their traditional place in the high quality market with the introduction of the 220 series. In line with the rest of the contemporary range of models, these cars featured six cylinder single overhead camshaft engines, valves being across, not in line with, the head. This unit produced 80bhp at a relaxed 4,600rpm, giving an impressive 90mph top speed. Roadworthiness was described by The Motor at the time as outstanding, all independent suspension giving a remarkably level ride on poor secondary roads, yet with good high speed cornering and precise steering. This car was not cheap however, the German price of £1,098 being inflated to £2,123 for the UK market. Manufactured in November 1952, this 220 A cabriolet was first sold in Berlin and as today, came in black livery, red leather seating, Becker wireless and additional Bosch lamps with Hella straps. Later being sold by Mercedes-Benz to Paris it resided in France for many years. What is emarkable on this 220 A is the fact that it is still unmolested and very original to this day with only some minor cosmetic restoration. The majority of its interior, paint and chrome is original, if only a little patinated now. The maintenance file dates back 20 years and includes an inspection report of 2015 and a service in 2017 by Mercedes-Benz. Although not a concours contender in its current state, this is a very honest and rare sought after car and uncommonly available for sale in such original condition. One of only 2,360 Mercedes-Benz 220 A cabriolets built.
1966 Volkswagen Beetle 1500cc Cabriolet Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 157246542
Estimate: €27,000 - €32,000
This beautiful original Beetle Cabriolet, fitted with the more powerful 1500cc motor and front disc brakes, has recently enjoyed a very comprehensive restoration. The Beetle is finished in its original shade of Java Green paint, contrasted by a nicely re-trimmed interior in two-tone leather/cloth, with matching carpets. VW Beetle Cabriolets make brilliant classic cars, hugely enjoyable to drive and very simple and fun to maintain, and this nicely restored example makes a wonderful proposition. The Beetle is supplied with Dutch registration papers.
1972 Porsche 914 Targa Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 4722913389
Estimate: €18,000 - €21,000
This very nicely presented 914 Targa was first registered in March 1972 to Grand Rapids in Michigan, United States, finished in Weidengrun (green) to the exterior with Kunstleder Braun (brown leather) seats. The Porsche has recently been repatriated into Europe and benefits from a detailed program of restoration. The 914 has been repainted in its original shade of green, and the interior re-trimmed. The mechanical components have also been completely refurbished, as such overall this delightful Porsche is presented in very good order. Supplied with a US title, a thick file of previous invoices for repair and maintenance work, and with all European duties paid, this is a wonderful entry into Porsche ownership.
1966 Jaguar Mark II 3.8 Manual Overdrive Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €31,000 - €35,000
Jaguar saloons led the field in production and touring car races during much of the 1960’s. Not surprisingly the quickest and most successful private entries came from John Coombs’ Jaguar dealership in Guilford. John Coombs had significant race experience and his dealership simply got it right for a fortunate few racing enthusiasts. Very early on that included Hill, Salvadori and Salmon. This extremely well presented Mark II Jaguar is fitted with the most desirable specification of the 3.8 litre motor coupled to a manual (with overdrive) gearbox. The Mark II runs and drives very well, especially so with the fitted overdrive and power steering. Finished in British Racing Green with a grey Connolly leather interior and offered with Dutch registration documents and previous invoices for works completed, this is a fine example of the original modern sports saloon.
1987 Mercedes Benz 560 SL Roadster Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: A0805345
Estimate: €22,000 - €26,000
This Mercedes-Benz 560 SL was exported to Japan in European specification when new. On behalf of a German collector the car came back to Germany in 2015 when it was customs cleared and registered with German road registration papers. Today the car is in good condition and finished elegantly in blue/ black metallic with sumptuous black leather interior and many extras, namely its hard top in silver and a new soft top. These big 8 cylinder Mercedes SL’s are definitely underrated in today’s market and a rise in prices is certainly in the near future. In any case, this 560 SL is sure to please its new owner in the coming spring and summer months at a modest outlay.
1968 Mercedes Benz 280 SE Cabriolet Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 11102510000475
Estimate: €130,000 - €140,000
When Mercedes-Benz replaced the popular W111 220 series in 1966, the first SClass range was born. Much of the mechanical specification remained as before, but a new, sleeker bodyshell with lower roof and waist lines and a larger glass area proved to be a far more modern design than the dated, finned wing appearance of its predecessor; supplementing the saloons there were, as always, both coupé and cabriolet derivatives. All of these W108 models, however, shared similar all independent suspension, by wishbone/coil spring at the front together with a coil sprung swing axle at the rear; all round disc brakes and power assisted steering were also standard equipment. Power was initially provided by a choice of three overhead camshaft six cylinder engines: for the 250 S, the 2,496cc motor produced 130bhp via twin carburettors, with the 280 SE benefitting from Bosch fuel injection and an increase in output to 150bhp (rising in 1968 to 160bhp); transmission was invariably an automatic four-speed unit. This original Mercedes Benz 280 SE cabriolet was delivered to France when new. It is one of the rare examples with a 4 speed manual gearbox and the desirable floor shift gear lever. Beautifully finished in maroon with black leather interior, this early high radiator cabriolet comes with French road papers and presents itself in very good condition throughout. One of only 1,390 examples produced by the factory, this is a rare and highly collectible car for the connoisseur.
1955 Porsche 356 Pre A coupe Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 52908
Estimate: €200,000 – €240,000
One of the all-time great sports cars, the 356 was the work of Ferry Porsche and based on the Volkswagen designed by his father. Like the immortal ‘Beetle’, the 356 employed a platform-type chassis with rear-mounted air-cooled engine and all-independent torsion bar suspension. In 1951 a works car finished first in the 1,100cc class at the Le Mans 24-Hour Race, thus beginning the marque’s long and illustrious association with Le Sarthe. The first phase of development saw the 356’s engine grow to 1.3 litres and then to 1.5 litres; the original split windscreen replaced by a one-piece; and a Porsche synchromesh gearbox adopted. 1955 marked the arrival of the restyled 356A, the newcomer being readily distinguished by its rounded windscreen and 15 – down from 16 – wheels. This matching numbers example is fitted with its original factory 1500 engine. Last year in the Netherlands the 356 was treated to a very high-quality restoration which has been documented with bills and receipts of the work carried out. Originally delivered in Europe to Firma Hahn of Stuttgart, Germany in its original specification of 5410 B Adriatic blue metallic with blue leather interior. Offered with Dutch registration papers and a full history file documenting the restoration this wonderful example is not just excellently presented but also ready to be used by a new custodian.
1955 Porsche 356 Pre A Speedster 1600 Super Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 80961
Estimate: €290,000 – €340,000
As the first serial production car to wear the Porsche name, the 356 was the car that set the company firmly in the direction of building high quality, cleverly engineered sports cars that could punch well above their weight both on the road and at the circuit, a philosophy that has changed little today. The 356 was a relatively simple car that shared its basic layout with the Volkswagen Beetle and utilized a monocoque chassis design and a highly reworked version of the VW’s flat-four cylinder engine slung out behind the rear axle. For his own car, Dr. Porsche dramatically improved the VW engine with new heads, new cam, new crankshaft and other internals, as well as a dual carburettor intake. The result was an engine that revved freely and produced double the horsepower of the Beetle from whence it came. True to the Porsche ethos, the 356 was continuously being refined and revised over its 17-year production run without ever really being fully redesigned, and by the end of the run in 1965, horsepower had nearly doubled again from the first 356’s. Along with its continual mechanical refinement, the 356 was offered in many different body configurations sourced through a variety of German coachbuilders. Standard cars included the Coupé, Cabriolet, and Speedster.
There were also Notchback, Roadster and Convertible ‘D’ variants, most featuring subtle differences in the shape of the body. Perhaps the purest expression of the 356 as a driver-focused sports car was the Speedster. It first appeared in 1955 at the suggestion of the influential American importer, Max Hoffman who believed that a stripped-down, lower-cost 356 would sell well in America, particularly in sunny California where sports car racing was all the rage.
He believed that a lightweight car with simple equipment could be readily set up for track duty and driven home at the end of the day. Hoffman proved right and the Speedster was an instant hit. Instantly recognisable by virtue of its low, wraparound – as opposed to V-shaped – windscreen, smaller and entirely retractable hood, lower door waistline, horizontal trim strip at the level of the door handles, and twin bucket seats, all of which served to emphasise its sporting image. Powered initially by the 1.5-litre version of Porsche’s horizontally opposed four, upgraded to the new 1.6-litre, 60bhp engine with the introduction of the improved 356A in 1955. Priced at $2,995, the Speedster was the lightest of the 356’s, enjoying a commensurate performance boost that meant over 100mph was possible. Allied to its already renowned handling characteristics, this meant that these elegant little cars were an instant success in the burgeoning American sports car racing scene. Production was relatively short, however, running from 1955 through 1958, when it was replaced by the heavier, more luxurious Convertible ‘D’. Today, the Speedster remains one of the most highly sought-after and collectible variations on the 356 theme. Chassis number 80961 was delivered new to Lieutenant Robert Wesley stationed in Sonauto Paris on the 27th October 1955. A very rare car indeed this example is one of only 110 cars originally delivered with a 1600 Super engine. Delivered in colour code 5788 red with early styled black seats this very original example is presented in good condition all round. The paintwork shows little sign of wear and body panels are straight. Mechanically in good working order the car is fitted with a user friendly and very desirable Super 90 engine but does come complete with the original matching 1600 75bhp engine as part of the sale. Offered with a sizeable history file and Dutch registration documents. A fantastic opportunity to acquire a rare and original Pre A speedster with matching 1600 Super engine.
1985 Ferrari Mondial Cabriolet Recent €18,000 refurbishment Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 2FFUL15A1F0058175
Estimate: €36,000 - €42,000
The Mondial saw Ferrari return to Pininfarina as its choice of styling house, and it was sold as a mid-sized Coupé and, eventually, a Cabriolet. Conceived as a ‘more usable’ model, offering the practicality of four seats with the performance of a mid-range Ferrari, it was aimed at attracting a slightly wider audience than their traditionally more focused two-seaters. This 1985 3-litre Mondial Quattrovalvole Cabriolet is one of just 629 produced. Showing just 17,000 miles recorded the Mondial has benefited from much care in recent times. According to our vendor ca. 18,000 has been spent on various items, a full list of which is available upon request. A highly accessible entry into classic Ferrari ownership and a lovely car for the summer months.
1969 Ford Taunus 12M Turnier Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: EP17JA43906
Estimate: €12,000 - €16,000
The Ford Taunus was a family car sold by Ford in Germany, named after the Taunus mountain range, and first introduced in 1939. From 1952 to 1968 all German Fords were called the Taunus, using the model names 12M, 15M, 17M, 20M, and 26M. The “M” stands for “Meisterstück”, which translates in English to “Masterpiece”. The 12, 15 and 17M models were fitted with a straight-4 and later models a V4 engine. The 20 and 26M models had the Ford Cologne V6 engine. The 12, 15, 17 names refer to the engine displacement; 1200, 1500, 1700, and so on. Production continued through several versions until finally ending in 1994. One of the last of the 12M models, this stunning Taunus Turnier was first delivered in 1969, benefitting recently from a huge restoration at great expense. The Taunus was stripped, bodywork repairs completed, and repainted in Light Blue. The interior benefitted from a retrim, and the motor was also rebuilt. The quality of the work is evident; panel gaps are very good all round, and the overall finish is excellent both on the outside and underneath of the car. As a result of much mechanical attention the car now runs and drives very well. Offered with Portuguese registration papers, this must surely rank as one of the very best examples of the model available today.
1964 Mercedes Benz 300 SE Coupe Ex Royal family of Jordan Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 112021-12-006596
Estimate: €85,000 - €95,000
This 300 SE coupe was ordered originally by King Hussein of Jordan. It was equipped with some special options, such as reinforced front seats and a Becker wireless. After being used in his country by the Royal family, it was entrusted to the King’s son, Prince Mohammed Bin Talal who then lived in London. It was registered as an Embassy of Jordan car and remained in the British capital until 1968. On March 8th, 1968, it was sold to a Mr. Richard W. Tennant, based in Austria. The car saw very little use there and eventually was sold again to a well-known Austrian collector. He kept the car in a dry garage before selling it again to the now owner in 2015. From 2015 to 2017 the 300 SE was comprehensively restored while preserving the original parts and the patina that makes this beautiful automobile such a charming machine. The upholstery has been completely redone, as well as breaking, suspension and power systems. The paint, also redone some years ago is nicely mellowed and the body is described as being very sound. With its Royal provenance, well documented history and excellent condition, this special car is indeed something for the true Mercedes connoisseur.
