(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in writing to the Seller decline to sell the Lot, and the Seller shall be liable to Coys as though the Seller had withdrawn the lot from sale without Coys consent.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 Hammer Price, 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.

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 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.

1961 Porsche Diesel Type 219 Tractor Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: 2193688
Estimate: €13,000 - €15,000
Following spells at the Austro-Daimler, Mercedes-Benz, and Steyr companies, all of which benefited greatly from his monumental engineering prowess, Dr. Ferdinand Porsche set up his own design consultancy in Stuttgart on 25th April 1931. Dr Ing. F Porsche’s most celebrated product of the 1930s was, of course, Hitler’s ‘People’s Car – the Volkswagen – but the company was also active in other fields, literally so in the case of its tractor project. Several prototypes were constructed prior to WW2, the earliest of which were powered by petrol engines, before Dr. Porsche turned to diesel power, eventually developing a series of one, two, three and four-cylinder air-cooled engines ranging in output from 14 to 55bhp. As with all things from Dr. Porsche’s fertile imagination, the tractors owed little to convention and much to creativity and efficiency and imagination. An unusual feature of Porsche’s drive system was its hydraulic coupling between the engine and the gearbox, which permitted smooth, clutchless gear changes, reducing wear on the transmission components and was simple to use and maintain by unsophisticated farmers. After the end of the war, Porsche was barred from producing its own tractors and only companies that had been making tractors prior to and during the war were permitted to carry on, forcing Porsche to license its designs to other manufacturers. Agreements were concluded with two companies, Allgaier GmbH in Germany and Hofherr Schrantz in Austria, and then in 1954 Mannesmann AG diversified into tractor manufacture by acquiring the rights to Porsche’s engine and Allgaier’s tractor design, setting up Porsche-Diesel Motorenbau GmbH. Registered in 1961, this 2 cylinder Type 219 Diesel Tractor displays the kind of patina only available with unrestored classics, and is all the better for it. The tractor runs well we understand, and shows just 6,630 kilometres recorded. One of the cheapest, and most fun, entries into classic Porsche ownership!

1968 OM Leoncino Recovery Truck Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 34C11623426657
Estimate: â‚Ź7,000 - â‚Ź10,000
The Leoncino was a medium-sized truck produced by the manufacturer OM based in Brescia. Production ran from from 1950 to 1968. The truck had a width which was narrower than its competitors, which was perfect for navigating through narrower city centre roads. The Leoncino was the first of a series of trucks named in a Zoological theme. Others included the Tigrotto, Tiger, Lupetto, Cerbiatto, Daino and Orsetto models. First delivered new to Brescia in 1968, this trusty truck has been in the ownership of a Dutch enthusiast in recent times, used to transport his period Ferrari 250 GT Boano to and from events. The truck runs and drives well, including importantly the PTO system to the rear. All in all a very useful classic support vehicle for period racing and concours events, and offered with Dutch registration papers.

1972 Alfa 1300 GT Junior Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: AR1283030
Estimate: €15,000 - €18,000
The Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior was the entry model to the Alfa Romeo coupé range. It was introduced in 1965 as the replacement for the 101 series Giulia Sprint 1300, which was the final development of the Giulietta Sprint series. The GT 1300 Junior was fitted with the same 1300 (1290 cc) twin cam engine, as fitted to the Giulietta series cars, but revised for the 105 series with reduced port sizes and other modifications. The smaller engine was introduced in order to allow buyers to choose an Alfa Romeo coupé while avoiding the higher taxes on the models with larger engine capacity, especially in Alfa Romeo’s home Italian market. The GT 1300 Junior was in production for over a decade. Throughout this period it was updated by the factory, incorporating many of the same revisions applied to the larger-engined models. Together with the Giulia 1300 Ti, the GT 1300 Junior pioneered the use of ATE disc brakes as later fitted throughout the 105 series, replacing the Dunlop discs on earlier cars. The first few GT 1300 Juniors lacked a brake servo, and had the low rear wheel arches of the Giulia Sprint GT and Giulia Sprint GTV. From 1967, a servo was fitted as standard, together with higher rear wheel arches as adopted later on the 1750 GTV. In 1968, concurrently with the replacement of the Giulia Sprint GT Veloce by the 1750 GTV, the GT 1300 Junior was revised with many of the new parts from the 1750 GTV. This included the dashboard, the suspension and larger wheels. In 1970 the Junior was revised a second time, and received the same nose treatment as the 1750 GTV, without the step but with only two headlights. For 1972, new wheels featuring smaller hubcaps with exposed wheel nuts like those on the 2000 GTV were fitted. This very clean rust-free example shows excellent patina and performs well with tight handling. The GT Junior shows 97,000 kilometres from new, with the 1300cc motor performing especially well matched to the 5 speed gearbox. All in all really fun classic car which can be enjoyed all year round.

1972 Mercedes Benz W108 280SE 4.5 V8 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WDB10806712008875
Estimate: €10,000 - €14,000
The Mercedes-Benz W108 and W109 were produced from 1965 through to 1972, and a total of 383,361 units were manufactured. Premièred in 1965, the initial model line-up consisted of three W108s: 250S, 250SE, 300SE W109, and the 300SEL. Engines for the new car were carried over from the previous generation, but enlarged and refined. The 250S was the entry-level vehicle fitted with a 2496cc engine, delivering 130 bhp. The 250SE featured an identical straight-six, but with fuel injection with power improved to 150 bhp. Both the 300SE and 300SEL came with the 2996 cc engine, producing 170 bhp. The cylinder capacity of the 3 litre Mercedes engine was unchanged since 1951. The arrival of the big-block 4520cc 225 hp M117 engine allowed for a final set of vehicles to be launched in the spring of 1971, the W108 280SE 4.5 and 280SEL 4.5 and the W109 300SEL 4.5. This was destined solely for the US market. Performance improved, top speed – 205 km/h, 0-100 – 9.5 seconds. This ex Texas USA example comes with its original owner’s manual, maintenance book and history file. Still retaining its original steel wheels with trims, factory electric windows, ivory chrome horn ring steering wheel, Factory Air Conditioning and many other early style features that came to an end towards the early 70’s. A true rust-free car in incredible condition with original features that have stood the test of time. There is a full maintenance and history file and has been carefully maintained by professionals over the years. Recently driven from Spain to the UK with no problems whatsoever. This car continues to amaze and delight with its roaring V8 engine and low mileage for the next lucky owner to enjoy!
1939 Amilcar B38 2-Door Aluminium Sportsmans Coupe by Factory Barn Find - Offered at No Reserve Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 50009
Estimate: No Reserve
Innovative alloy-bodied car, with just one owner for over 40 years and offered in barn find condition. The Amilcar Compound was produced from 1938 through the early 1940s with 681 examples built plus an additional 159 commercial vehicles (as many as 950 examples were reportedly built). They were designed by French engineer Jean-Albert Gregoire and given front-wheel drive configuration. Alpax, an aluminum alloy, was used extensively on the car. This was a new technology which often cause production delays due to the scarcity. The first Compound, the Compound B38, was shown at the 1937 Paris Motor Show. Most of the Compounds that followed were saloon and sedan bodies, with perhaps a cabriolet. This desirable and technically advanced car is offered from the current owner, who has enjoyed the car for over 40 years. Finished in metallic blue with a matching blue leather interior, the Amilcar is said to be completely rust-free, is offered with its original UK registration document and at No Reserve to the highest bidder.
1949 Cadillac Series 75 Fleetwood Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €30,000 - €40,000
The tailfins which were to be the hallmark of Cadillac styling throughout the fifties were first seen on the 1948 models; the inspiration was of course the P38 Lightning which had helped win World War II. The following year GM announced the first two door hard top the first such model to be known as the Coupe deVille, a name which survived for the next twenty years. A new power plant was also unveiled a smooth, potent V8 which dramatically improved performance along with power interestingly, fuel consumption. The engine benefitted from design innovations and improvements with the result that the engine was a remarkable 200 lbs lighter, five inches shorter and four inches lower than the model it replaced. The series 75 was Cadillac’s largest and most luxurious offering for the season. The big news was the new engine and a handsome re-revised dashboard, still impressive sixty years later. Top of the line for Cadillac was the Series 75 Imperial Limousine, designed to be the last word in luxury, with an eye watering list price for the time of $5,170, which inevitably resulted in sales of only 626 units for 1949. Today’s delightful example is finished in Embassy Black, with a sumptuous interior upholstered in Taupe fabric, which features twin occasional seats and all the luxury gadgets expected by a Cadillac buyer. American cars of this era remain as impressive as they were always intended to be, with the distinct advantage that these post-war cars are very drivable as well with the silky V8 well matched to the excellent Hydramatic automatic gearbox. This is a very handsome and well preserved specimen of what was always a rare car and is now even more so. Its condition indicates careful and sparing use and the car will provide be an impressive ornament to any collection.
1975 Citroen DS Super 5 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: DS21M4556298
Estimate: €18,000 - €22,000
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. Cherished for 17 years by the current owner, this car has been meticulously maintained and is described to be in very good condition throughout.
1992 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet Sportline Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WVW ZZZ 15ZNK018893
Estimate: â‚Ź14,000 - â‚Ź16,000
Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 1979, the topless Golf was offered in most countries as the GLi with a 1588cc GTi engine and stiffer suspension, alongside the GLS which had the 70bhp 1457cc unit. The GLi convertible got the 1.8 GTi engine in 1982 and the smaller petrol lump was replaced by the 1595cc carburettor unit in 1983. Spec levels were improved in 1990 and for the first time a hydraulically operated power hood became an option on GTI models. The Sportline from 1991 particularly appealed to younger buyers and this original paintwork car, with no accident history and only 64,000km since new really does impress. Three responsible owners have kept the car on the road and retained original parts where some small alterations were made to the lights. Recent works include necessary part replacements in the engine such as belts, filters and work on the brakes. Additional works such as bearings, rubbers and more can be viewed in the history file.

1962 BMW 502 V8 “Barockengel” Long-Term Private Ownership Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 65226
Estimate: €27,000 - €32,000
First presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1951, the BMW 501 marked the first series-produced BMW since the war and represented the opening ripple in what was to become a gathering wave of success for BMW until this day. BMW continued to stand out with the release of the 502 and by 1954 it became the world’s first volumeproduced vehicle to be fitted with a V8 built from aluminium; a remarkable success. Resultantly, the BMW 501 and 502 had cemented the company’s reputation as the leading manufacturer of prestigious and sporting sedans and cabriolets, and made the history books as the first German V8 engine built from aluminium. The unique and captivating design earned the nickname “Baroque Angel”. Fitted with desirable Sunroof option.
1990 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit II Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: SCAZS02A0LCX31027
Estimate: €18,000 - €21,000
The Silver Spirit was introduced by Rolls-Royce in 1980 as the first of a new generation of company models. It formed the basis for the Flying Spur, Silver Dawn, Touring Limousine, Park Ward, and Bentley Mulsanne/Eight series. The Spirit/Spur carried over the basic design of the Silver Shadow, its 6.75 L L410 V8 engine and GM sourced THM 400 3-speed automatic gearbox, and similarly styled unitary bodywork manufactured at Pressed Steel. The Spur/Spirit continued the Silver Shadow’s emphasis on ride quality by utilising its hydropneumatic selflevelling suspension, modified with Girling automatic hydraulic ride height control system and gas-charged shock absorbers The Silver Spur was a long-wheelbase version of the Silver Spirit, and the was the first car to feature the retractable Spirit of Ecstasy. Three incarnations of both cars appeared between 1980 and 1997; the Mark I (1980-1989), the Mark II (19891993) and the Mark III (1993-1996). First registered on 1st June 1990, this later Spirit II model has covered a mere 66,000 kilometres from new. Finished Acrylic White with a matching cream leather interior, this regularly maintained example was serviced within the last 1000 kilometres or so and is ready to be pressed into further service. The Spur model offers both exceptional quality and value in the market, so we are sure this stunning example will attract a lot of interest.
1961 Chrysler Windsor Hardtop Coupe Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 8213189815
Estimate: €10,000 - €15,000
The Chrysler Windsor is a full-size car which was built by Chrysler from 1939 through to the 1960s. The final Chrysler Windsor sold in the United States was produced in 1961, but production in Canada continued until 1966. The Canadian 1961 to 1966 Windsor model was for all intents and purposes the equivalent of the Chrysler Newport in the United States. The Windsor was positioned above the entry-level Royal from 1939 to 1950. With the demise of the Royal for the 1951 model year the Windsor became Chrysler’s price leader through to 1960. For the 1961 model year the Chrysler Newport was made the marque’s price leader with the Windsor positioned one level above the Newport. Chrysler replaced the Windsor name in 1962 with the introduction of the non-lettered series Chrysler 300. Delivered in the final year of production for this model, this charming Windsor Hardtop Coupe shows a mere 47,500 miles recorded, believed to be correct. The Windsor is finished in a period-correct shade of turquoise with an original leatherette/ cloth interior. The overall impression is very positive, with clean coachwork and engine bay, and many original features inside and out. Simple to maintain, and fun for cruising, this is a great classic choice for the whole family to enjoy!
1968 Triumph TR250 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €25,000 - €30,000
Triumph’s TR Series began with the unveiling of a prototype (the TR1) at the 1952 London Motorshow. The TR2 was launched the following year, and so began an uninterrupted run of two-seater Sports Cars that ended in 1981 with the last of the TR8s. Code named `Zest’, the TR4 was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the TR3A. Though based on the chassis and drivetrain of its much-loved predecessor, it cut a far more modern dash, thanks to an all new Michelotti-styled body. Power was provided by Triumph’s proven OHV four-cylinder engine with capacity increased to 2138cc. Other mechanical updates included a wider track front and rear, rack and pinion steering and an all-synchromesh gearbox. The optional overdrive now operated on second and third gears as well as top. There was also the option of a unique hardtop with fixed glass rear window, integral rollbar and removable centre section. The short-lived, but now much sought after, TR5 was visually identical to the TR4, but notably more potent thanks to the 2498cc straight-six that sat in place of the TR4’s four-cylinder unit – a total of just 2,947 TR5s left the factory between October 1967 and November 1968. Built over an almost identical period, the TR250 was effectively a TR5 for the American market. Finished in British Racing Green with a cream interior, this well kept example of the low volume TR250 model has just enjoyed a program of refurbishment, with attention to the interior and soft-top, and new tyres all round. The engine is said to run perfectly with good oil pressure and strong performance. The TR250 is in many ways the best of both worlds; the good looks of the earlier TR4, but with the smooth six cylinder performance of the later cars – a pretty tempting proposition!
1991 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC Coupé Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WDB1260451A579855
Estimate: €25,000 - €30,000
Mercedes-Benz set out to build the best luxury car in the world and – for the duration of the 1980s – the W126 C-Class succeeded admirably in achieving this goal. The W126 model employed a new range of light alloy V8 engines and a more aerodynamic shape (with a class leading 0.36cd) over the previous S-Class, significantly improving fuel consumption. A number of innovative safety systems, including ABS and SRS airbags, were seen on a production car for the first time. A coupe version of the W126 was envisaged right from the outset and the elegant SEC featured distinctive pillarless styling with more sharply raked front and rear windscreens, unique front-end styling and a shorter wheelbase. Initially available in two versions, the 380SEC and 500SEC, each powered by a single-overhead cam V8 engine with Bosch electronic fuel injection and four-speed automatic transmission, the big Benz coupe enjoyed effortless performance. At the 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show three new models were unveiled, the 420SEC, 500SEC and a new flagship badged the 560SEC, along with further mechanical improvements including dualrange (Sport and Economy) automatic transmission, revised 15-inch alloy wheels and upgraded brakes. The lower body sills were redesigned, giving the SEC a cleaner look, while the 560 model benefited from 215/65 tyres, ABS, speed-sensitive suspension and various interior upgrades. The 560’s M117 V8 engine was rated at 300 bhp, with 325 lb/ft of torque on tap, resulting in a top speed of 150mph with acceleration to match. The car in our sale is the top of the range, with the most powerful engine available (5.6 litre rated at 300 bhp), traction control system and self-levelling of the rear suspension. Highly prized at the time by celebrities, it remains one of the best coupés ever produced by Mercedes-Benz and this example is no exception. This wonderful late car, first registered in February 1992, has covered a mere 64,800 kilometres from new, supported by detailed service records. We understand the SEC has enjoyed maintenance at 4,000, 10,000, 17,000, 28,000, 36,000, 41,000, 47,000, 56,000, 61,000 and 64,000 kilometres. Recently in the region of €9,000 has been invested to perfect the cosmetic and driving appeal. Finished in Blue-Black metallic paint with a black leather interior, and fitted with many period factory options such as driver’s airbag, climate control and heat-insulated glass, this is a fine example of one of Mercedes’ best efforts of the modern era.
1992 Lancia Delta Integrale Evolution Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZLA831AB000554879
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
Between 1987 and 1992, the Integrale utterly dominated its branch of motor sport, winning 46 rallies and six constructors’ championships outright. And to keep the rally car at the sharp end of the results table, the road car went through a number of iterations, each more potent than the last. As a road car, the Integrale is a truly joyful experience. Just like on the rally stages, its big rivalry in the early days came in the form of the Audi Quattro however the Delta was smaller, quicker and much lighter on its feet. The Integrale is a true drivers’ machine, and delivers a huge amount of feel and feedback that makes them irresistible. This nice example of Lancia’s world beater, finished in the rare scheme of metallic Derby Green with a very nicely preserved grey alcantara interior, really puts a smile on your face with its punchy performance and rally inspired looks. The road holding of the Delta is exceptional and with its freshly rebuilt engine the acceleration is extremely strong. If you are seeking a competition-bred machine to keep in the garage and enjoy on high days and holidays, this lovely example will knock your socks off!
1973 BMW 3.0 CSi Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 2266267
Estimate: €70,000 - €90,000
With BMW looking to push the marque further upmarket, the combination of their bahn-storming six cylinder engine and a pretty but underpowered Coupé in its portfolio, it was almost inevitable that the two would get together. The resulting E9 Coupé is one of BMW’s best ever Coupés. British buyers had to wait until 1969 before they could sample the new car and shortly after, in 1971, the 3.0 CS made its debut with another 10bhp and more torque for better flexibility. This year also saw the introduction of this car – the 3.0 CSI fuel injected version, and with more power it became BMW’s first 200bhp plus machine. It was always an expensive machine at some £6,000 when new in 1971 – that would have bought you a Porsche 911 of the period or even an entry-level Ferrari. In recent years, prices of its big brother, the legendary CSL have rapidly risen to a whole new league with the CSI’s tipped to follow. The fabulous example, first delivered in December 1973, has recently enjoyed a hugely exhaustive restoration. The work is well documented in a photographic diary, and clearly was carried out to exacting standards. The underneath of the car equally as impressive as the outside and interior, in fact having sold many of these Coupes this must rank as the nicest CSi that we have seen. The CSi is beautifully finished in the perfect 1970s shade of Taiga Green, with the added enhancement of larger period Alpina wheels on each corner. If you seeking the ultimate 1970s German GT car, then look no further than this stunning E9 CSi.
1966 Maserati Sebring Series II Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: AM101S10415
Estimate: €180,000 – €190,000
Introduced in 1962, the Sebring was one of the final manifestations of the landmark 3500 GT, which had been the linchpin of Maserati’s program 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 centered on switching production from competition to road models. The Modena marque’s new era began in 1957 with the launch of the Touring-bodied 3500 GT, its first road car built in significant numbers. A luxury 2+2, the 3500GT drew heavily on Maserati’s competition experience, employing a tubular chassis frame and an engine derived from the 350S sports car unit of 1956. Suspension was independent at the front by wishbones and coil springs, while at the back there was a conventional live axle/semi-elliptic arrangement. The 3500 GT’s designer was none other than Giulio Alfieri, creator of the immortal Tipo 60/61 ‘Birdcage’ sports-racer and the man responsible for developing the 250F into a World Championship winner. The twin-overhead-camshaft, six-cylinder engine was a close relative of that used in the 250F and developed around 220bhp initially, later examples producing 235bhp on Lucas mechanical fuel injection. Built initially with drum brakes and four-speed transmission, the 3500 GT was progressively updated, gaining five speeds, front disc brakes and, finally, all-disc braking.
A car possessing such impeccable antecedents not unnaturally attracted the attention of Italyâ€™s finest carrozzeria: Allemano, Bertone and Frua all created bodies for the 3500 GT chassis. Most Coupes were the work of Touring, while all but one (a Frua-bodied example) of the much less common Spider version were the work of Carrozzeria Vignale. Built on the short-wheelbase chassis of the Spider and likewise styled by Vignale, the Sebring Coupe arrived in 1962. By now a five-speed ZF gearbox, four-wheel disc brakes and fuel injection were standard equipment, with automatic transmission, air conditioning and a limited-slip differential available as options. With a hefty price tag, the new Maserati was some 22% more expensive than the contemporary Aston Martin DB5, its closest rival. Introduced in 1965, the Sebring Series II came with a 3.7-litre, potent 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, 242 of which were in the second series. The car on display today is matching numbers with 79,000km recorded on its odometer. Produced in 1966 was delivered to Swiss owners before it was registered in Germany in 2005. In 2012 it was sold to the current owner and carefully looked after to the sound of EUR16,000 with a number of improvements including an injection and heating overhaul. Available with the car are two sets of keys, spare parts catalogue and Certificate of Origin from Maserati.
1992 Porsche 964 Carrera 2 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ96ZW404585
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
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 four-wheel 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 1970s, 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. Beautifully presented in Grand Prix white with grey leather interior, this very original 964 Carrera 2 is described to be in excellent condition throughout with a good service history.
1961 Warwick GT 350 V8 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WGT00006
Estimate: €40,000 - €50,000
After Peerless Cars closed their doors in 1960 Bernie Rodger continued to develop his design, the Peerless GT, now re-named `Warwick GT`. The car appeared littlechanged at first glance. In fact the car had received two major revisions and one minor one. The space-frame had been reinforced, the dash-panel revised and a tilt-forward, one-piece nose replaced the old bonnet and wings. This remarkable innovation pre-dated the `E type` Jaguar by a year. The car you see here is the Warwick GT works car ’75 RBH’. Road tested in period in 2-litre form, this car appeared in ‘Motor 1961 and was road tested by the great John Bolster for ‘Autosport (21st April 1961). Used as a development car by the Warwick company for the GT350 programme – the car was fitted with an all-aluminium Buick V-8 and described as a GT350 in the 1961 edition of ‘The Illustrated Book of Cars. ’75 RBH’ had the following competition history: 1961 RAC Rally 1961 Goodwood Motor Show Test Day – driven by Lord Strathcarron 1961 Silverstone 750MC 6 hour relay 1961 Brighton Speed Trials 1961 Brands Hatch August Bank Holiday Race 1961 British Empire Trophy 1961 Goodwood Whitsun Meeting (GT Scratch race driven by Bernie Roger) 1962 A similar car competed at the ’62 Sebring 12 hours in the United States ’75 RBH’ was discovered many years ago by the respected collector Hugh James, still in GT350 V8 form. Following a rebuild the car was debuted at the 2009 Goodwood Revival meeting, where it took part in the ‘Fordwater Trophy’ for production sportscars. The Warwick benefits from a recent repaint, a steering, braking and suspension rebuild, a new Helix clutch and a stainless exhaust system. Offered with a full FIA Historic Technical Passport (valid to 2025), a UK V5 document, and a substantial spares package including many original parts (full list available), this is a truly unique racing car with a fascinating past but also a very bright future.
1988 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 ST Recreation Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ91ZJS121550
Estimate: €175,000 - €185,000
In 1970 new rules allowed the wheel arches of the 911 to be extended (flared) a further 2 inches from standard to accommodate wider wheels. The engine capacity was also increased to 2195cc by increasing the bore to 84 mm. Porsche could now enlarge the cubic capacity of the engine by bore increase only, as per regulations, enabling them to run at the next class limit of 2,5 litres – an objective accomplished in several stages. At the first stage, the capacity of the engine was increased to 2247cc, an increase in bore of just 1 mm to 85 mm. At the same time the factory made use of “Biral” cylinders which consisted of cast-iron cylinders with alloy fins bonded on. Twin ignition had now been homologated (with normal coils and contact breakers) and this was part of the engine tune, together with polished and crack tested connecting rods. The compression ratio of the 2247cc S-model was 10.3:1. As before, standard valves were used (46mm inlet and 40mm exhaust). Bosch twin row, six-plunger pump (mechanical) fuel injection was now used, the pump of which was modified with a space cam to match the Carrera 6 racing cams which were installed. Tuned induction pipes without an air filter were also used. The racing engine for group 4 could be ordered with Weber IDA carburettors with 42 mm diameter choke tubes – curiously the factory claiming a power output of 230 hp for both units. The standard crankshaft and bearings were also used, measuring 66mm. Thirty of these engines were built, the factory designating them “Type 911/20.” This 1988 factory model has gone through a ground up re-build mechanically and aesthetically as per Motorsport models of the type 911 ST. Modifications include body work such as side panel work, interior Alcantara race seats, roll cage and lightweight interior. The car also benefits from a 3.5-litre upgraded engine, special exhaust and much more.
1958 MGA Roadster Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: â‚Ź28,000 - â‚Ź31,000
By the time Le Mans came around the design of what would be known as the MGA had effectively been finalised, the race itself being little more than a useful opportunity to check that everything was as it should be. Conceived as replacement for the traditional T-Series MGs, the MGA combined a rigid chassis with the Austindesigned, 1,489cc B-Series engine that had first appeared in the ZA Magnette. Initially this engine produced 68bhp at 5,500rpm, though this was later raised to 72bhp at the same revs to further improve performance. Running gear was based on that of the TF, with independent front suspension and a live rear axle, but as far as its road manners were concerned, the far superior MGA was in an entirely different league. Clad in a stylish aerodynamic body and capable of topping 95mph, the MGA proved an instant hit, selling 13,000 units in its first full year of production. Attractive, stylish and guaranteed head-turner anywhere, the MGA is among the most desirable and driveable of classic post-war sports cars. They are also exceptionally user friendly, being cheap to run and easily maintained by the home mechanic, with ample spares and service back-up provided by an extensive network of specialists. This delightful MGA Roadster was delivered new to Belgium, more recently being the lucky recipient of a full body-off restoration to a high standard. The MGA is said to drive well with an extremely smooth engine and gearbox, and is provided with all weather-gear such as sidescreens, hood and full tonneau cover. Finished in red with chrome wire wheels and with a lovely black leather interior, this is a really attractive classic car to enjoy the summer months with.
Land-Rover 90 Defender - Factory V8 Model Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ91ZJS121550
Estimate: â‚Ź25,000 - â‚Ź29,000
Production of the model now known as the Defender began in 1983 as the Land Rover 110, a name which reflected the 110-inch length of the wheelbase. The Land Rover 90, with 93-inch wheelbase soon followed. Superficially there is little to distinguish the post-1983 vehicles from the Series III Land Rover. A full-length bonnet, revised grille, plus the fitting of wheel arch extensions to cover wider-track axles are the most noticeable changes. Initially the conservative engineering department insisted that the Land Rover was also available with a part-time 4WD system familiar to derivatives produced since 1949. However the part-time system failed to sell and was quickly dropped from the options list by 1984. While the engine and other body panels carried over from the Series III, mechanically the 90 and 110 were modernized, including coil springs, permanent four wheel drive from the Range Rover, a more more interior and more powerful engines. This wonderful Defender was owned by an enthusiast who undertook a comprehensive program of restoration and improvements on the Land Rover, spending in the region of â‚Ź20,000 in parts alone. Since being completed the Defender has completed a mere 1000 kms, and now must be one of the nicest available today. The Defender is supplied with Belgian registration documents. This super cool factory short wheelbase model was fitted from new with the most powerful V8 engine, which when combined with the factory soft top becomes a very flexible and useful leisure vehicle with good performance. In current ownership the Landy has benefitted from a service with all new fluids, a new alternator and the fitting of a sports exhaust system. All in all a hugely enjoyable and fun modern classic offering endless possibilities for great escapes!
1968 Maserati Mexico 4.2 Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: AM112*358*
Estimate: €70,000 - €80,000
The Mexico was launched at the Turin Motor Show in 1966. Replacing the Sebring four-seat sedan model, Maserati’s new Maserati V8 sport sedan had elegant, yet understated bodywork from Carrozzeria Vignale, Maserati’s favourite stylist. The car was aimed at luxury four-passenger sedan customers, but with a much sportier character than the larger Quattroporte. The 4.7 litre V8 gave 290 horsepower, sufficient power to propel it to about 225 km / h, although some sources claimed to have reached about 240 km / h. With the exception of the swinging rear axle, Mexico’s mechanical components were identical to those of the contemporary Quattroporte with independent front wishbone suspension, four disc brakes, a standard five-speed ZF gearbox or an automatic transmission option. The production of the Mexico ceased in 1973 after 480 cars with which the contemporary Ghibli seemed to have been produced in mass with its 1,274 copies. This matching numbers example has only 52500km on the clock and was ordered on the 18th of April 1968 from Sport Auto Roma, delivered in June of that year to its first owner. The current owner has had the car since 2007 and include in its history file are service records mounting up to EUR50,000. Earlier work includes axle rubbers, brakes, clutch hydraulics, fuel tanks, hoses, water pump, AC overhaul and Seatbelts. The car has had its carburettors overhauled in 2013, had 4 new tyres in 2017 and more recently had an engine overhaul and service in 2018. Car comes with German papers, 2 sets of keys, original manual, handbooks and Maserati Certificate of Origin.
1969 Porsche 911 S Matching Numbers Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 9110300906
Estimate: €120,000 - €140,000
The first of many high-performance versions of the newly introduced 911 arrived in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoke 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. By this time, the 911 models had established themselves as one of Europe’s most refined and enjoyable sports cars for the road, and also as a serious weapon on the racetrack in production-based formulae. To have a Porsche 911 as a road car made a statement – you knew about the best things in life. Just take the king of cool for instance; in the opening scenes of the cult movie Le Mans, Steve McQueen is seen charging around French country roads in a 2.2-litre 1970 911S – the glorious sound of its flat-six and virtually open fuel injection intakes are remembered by most who have seen the movie. It’s perhaps no surprise that McQueen kept one for his own personal use long after filming was over. This wonderful example has benefitted from a frame-off restoration from 2014 to 2018 by GT-Classic, presented in its original colours inside and out. The engine was also completely refurbished with costs amounting to €20,000. Certainly an excellent example of this highly collectible model.
1962 Lancia Flaminia GT by Touring of Milan One private owner from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 824001602
Estimate: €70,000 - €100,000
At the 1957 Geneva Motor Show the replacement for the legendary and highly successful Lancia Aurelia was revealed. Named the Flaminia, after a famous Roman road (just as the Aurelia and the Appia had been), it made a profound impression on the automotive world, with its good looks and with Lancia’s traditional quirky and interesting engineering. The Flaminia body design set the stylistic benchmark for saloon cars for years to come and is perhaps Pininfarina’s most influential work of the era. It was clear that also a Flaminia convertible had to follow, and the answer of course was already staring Lancia management in the eye: the Flaminia GT by Carrozzeria Touring. Amazingly this early Touring-bodied Flaminia has had just one private owner from new, who purchased the car from his local dealer in 1961 and enjoyed it for a further 54 years before finally hanging up his driving gloves. More recently time and effort has been invested into bringing the car up to the condition you see here; notably the engine has been overhauled and the car has benefitted from a repaint in its original shade of Bianco Saratoga, which contrasts nicely with the black leather interior. It is exciting to find such a well-preserved original example of this rare and stylish model, a delightful Italian tourer and a wise choice for the canny collector.
1961 Daimler SP250 “Dart” Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €60,000 - €70,000
An unusual departure for a firm more noted for its stately limousines, the SP250 sports car was Daimler’s final fling before its acquisition by Jaguar. Aimed at the North American market and launched in 1959, the SP250 employed a separate ladder-type chassis on which sat controversially styled fibreglass coachwork manufactured by Daimler themselves. Fourwheel disc brakes were an unusual feature at the time but unquestionably the car’s biggest virtue was its magnificent 2.5-litre V8 engine. An outstandingly flexible unit, the smaller of Daimler’s two Edward Turner designed V8s produced 140bhp, an output good enough to propel the SP250 to a top speed of 125mph. In keeping with the demands of its intended market, automatic transmission was available as an option. The model survived Jaguar’s 1960 take-over, benefiting from its new owner’s attention that resulted in the much-improved ‘B’ version. Introduced in April 1961, the SP250 ‘B’ boasted a stiffer chassis and thicker fibreglass coachwork.
This 1961 Dart has been the beneficiary of a â€œtotal restorationâ€? over a two year period, and as you can imagine is presented in beautiful condition. During the restoration the chassis and suspension were powder-coated and many smaller items were galvanized. The Daimler was finished to a high standard, with a number of improvements such as the fitting of optional overdrive, servo-assisted braking, and all new weather equipment in mohair. Amazingly never driven after being restored, this is effectively an as-new out of the box Daimler.
1950 ‘Berlin III’ E2 Class BMW 328 Racing Boat Registration Number: N/A
Chassis Number: N/A
Estimate: €180,000 – €240,000
Built in 1950 this BMW 328 engine-powered racing boat was piloted by accomplished speedboat racer Jürgen Baginski. Designed by highly respected boat-builder Max Steaves to compete in the 2-litre European Class E and designed with the stylings of the Class D racing runabouts of the American Powerboat Federation. Fitted with the 6-cylinder engine of the BMW 328 roadster, extensively restored after being found in 2003, with over 2,500 working hours. ‘Berlin III’ is more than likely one of the earliest BMW racing boats of the post-war period and would be a highlight of any BMW collection.
1956 Jaguar Mark VII Ex Queen Ingrid of Denmark Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 740171
Estimate: €35,000 - €40,000
The Jaguar Mk VII was launched in 1950 and production carried on until the introduction of the Mk VII M in 1954. The ‘M’ cars could be distinguished from their predecessors most easily by the horn grilles beneath the headlights. These replaced the formerly integrated auxiliary lamps which were now perched on the bumpers and slightly further from the centre of the car than before. The newer model also had wrap-around bumpers that carried on a little further along the sides of the car. Early in 1956 a Mark VII M won the Monte Carlo rally paving the way for these big Jaguar sedans to play a leading part in British saloon car racing for the next few years. First delivered to Her Majesty Queen Ingrid of Denmark this beautifully presented Jaguar comes with a Heritage Certificate confirming her ownership. Benefitting from a re-spray in the charming two-tone combination of silver over blue with grey interior this is a superb Jaguar with Royal provenance.
1969 BMW 2000 Ti Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €24,000 - €29,000
The post-World War II crisis in Europe was not a great period for BMW. The brand offered either large, expensive luxury barges – which weren’t as profitable as expected – or microcars powered by motorbike engines, which were already dated at the time and were slowly becoming a thing of the past. In order to prevent financial trouble of the company (even Daimler Benz pondered its takeover), the Germans set to work on a new middle-class model, which would still be comfortable and elegant, but also affordable at the same time. The result was the “Neue Klasse” – “New Class” series, thanks to which BMW recovered financially and established its market position and image. The BMW 2000 was an enhanced and more powerful version. It was distinguished by a better equipped interior, new front (with rectangular headlamps in Europe and round ones in the USA) and restyled taillights. Initially the only available engine was a 100 BHP two-litre, but in 1966 the engine line-up was joined by 120 BHP a 2000 TI version. The BMW Neue Klasse was universally praised by its style, performance, efficiency, comfort and handling. It was a much anticipated sales success and helped BMW recover financially. It was also successful in motorsport (having won the 24-hour endurance race at Spa several times). Numerous features were introduced in this car for the first time and were also used in many other BMW vehicles that came along subsequently. It is often said that the Neue Klasse defined brand’s character and set path for its development, whereas its heritage is still present in today’s products of the Bavarian giant. The 2000 Ti you see here is a later facelifted model from 1969, with a number of minor improvements to the trim inside and out. The dashboard is altered; headrests, radio console, steering wheel, door panel handles and door panels feature fewer chrome highlights. Showing just 78,000 kilometers recorded, this beautifully preserved original example is still presented in its original shade of Chamonix White, with much of the first paint still visible to the bodywork and closing panels. Below the waste line the paint was stripped back to bare metal and refinished professionally. The interior is finished in the correct navy coloured leatherette and is still in excellent order. We are sure this charming classic executive car will provide much pleasure for its lucky next owner. 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.
1982 Mercedes Benz SL 500 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WDB10704612000643
Estimate: â‚Ź28,000 - â‚Ź33,000
The SLs of this era (the 107 chassis) really established themselves as icons of quality and success on the Continent as well as the Americas; unlike the previous SL range, these cars were rugged and durable and could accumulate high mileage and still remain reliable with just the most basic of care. The first of the generation was the 350 SL, a car that is now beginning to occupy a strong place in the hearts of Mercedes-Benz collectors; it was the original pure design with no emissions equipment to speak of, small plated bumpers and manual windows. Being lighter and unrestricted from an emissions standpoint meant the cars were lively performers as well as quiet and comfortable touring cars. Following the discontinuation of the SLC in September 1981, the 107 series continued initially as the 280, 380 and 500 SL. At this time, the V8 engines were re-tuned for greater efficiency.
This SL500 R107 was first delivered in Germany and then exported to the US until 2017. In great condition, this fine automobile has been well preserved and includes improved corrosion protection for the years ahead. Repainted and restored about 12 years ago, paint and chrome are in top condition. The car has a TUV which is valid until 2020 which it passed without any problems. Furthermore, the car has undergone recent work visible in the history file. A fine example for a lucky new owner to enjoy.
1995 BMW Alpina B12 5.7 Coupee Fitted with rare and desirable manual gearbox Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WAPBC57C05SD20051
Estimate: €120,000 - €130,000
Based on the BMW 850CSi which was presented to the public in 1992, the B12 5.7 Coupe was one of the fastest cars Alpina have ever made. The engine is based on the BMW Motorsport prepared 5.6-litre V12, which produces 380bhp. Alpina modified the engine capacity to 5.7-litres, as well as the intake, crankshaft and camshafts. A new exhaust system featuring Alpina’s own stainless steel catalytic converters was fitted, and the Motronic engine management system was reprogrammed. These changes improved output to 416bhp and 570Nm of torque. The B12 Coupe was based on the already highly regarded BMW 850 CSi, typically Alpina finely honed the car with an extensive list of upgrades resulting in a very rapid and satisfying driving machine and the fastest BMW ever at the time. Performance was phenomenal – a top speed in excess of 180mph with a sub 5 second dash to 60mph. A handmade carbon fibre bonnet with NACA duct reduced weight and aided engine cooling, whilst uprated Alpina springs with Bilstein dampers and massive 285/35 rear tyres mounted on Alpina 20 spoke alloy wheels greatly aided road holding. The standard gearbox was a Getrag 6-speed manual, though the Shift-Tronic gearbox was an option.
This range-topping B12 5.7 was specified from new with the rare and desirable 6-speed manual gearbox. Part of a small collection of classics, the Alpina has been owned by just one collector for c. 15 years. Finished in Dakar Yellow, the B12 is supplied with many older bills for maintenance and repairs with BMW dealer Bernhardt und Roehrich and BMW specialist Detlev Schmitter. Having been in dry storage in recent years, the BMW would benefit from a service with new fluids. This model is now becoming exceptionally desirable in the classic cars market, as such we feel now is a very good time to invest in one of the most collectible BMWs you can buy.
2005 Porsche 996 Turbo S Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WP0ZZZ99Z5S680235
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
This Porsche Type 996 was the first new 911 that was completely redesigned. Only 503 Turbo S with automatic transmission are made. The Turbo was introduced in 2000, increasing power output to 415 brake horsepower, with a 0–60 sprint over in just 4.2 seconds. As the factory began to wind down this beloved model, it offered the end-all-be-all of the series: the Turbo S is a very expensive model (€ 225.000,00) with many/many options. The vital statistics of this fully original Turbo S are impressive ! Technically, the Turbo S remained similar to the Turbo, but instead was outfitted with the X50 + X51 original manufacturer performance options, bumping horsepower up to 485 brake horsepower, as well as the brakes of the 911 Turbo S also has been uprated similarly. Fitted as standard are the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes(PCCB) system, offering a 50% weight reduction per wheel over the conventional steel brake disc equivalent, as well as superior fade resistance characteristics under heavy braking. Larger turbochargers and improved intercoolers helped to raise torque to 457 foot pounds. Top speed was rated at >200 mph. Offered here is one such rare example, finished in the classic colour combination of silver exterior on black leather. Provided with the car are all of the original manuals it as a two-owner vehicle with no accidents. Originally delivered new to the Middle East, this Turbo S was exported to The Netherlands in 2015, where it has been with its current owner. It has always been serviced by Porsche and it is now ready to be driven and enjoyed. *** This Porsche has Dutch licence plates and also German ‘Zulassungsbescheinigung’ papers ! *** *** The Dutch VAT is deductible and the Dutch BPM is refundable
1962 Alfa-Romeo Giulia 1600 Spider Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: AR373841
Estimate: €50,000 - €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. First registered on the 1st January 1962, this beautiful example features the more powerful 92hp 1600cc engine, which we understand runs perfectly and drives very nicely. Overall the Spider displays a delightful patina, with no signs of corrosion to the bodywork and a very nicely preserved interior. The Spider shows 26,960 kilometres recorded, and is offered with French registration papers. With the legendary twin-cam motor in full song, driving this achingly pretty sports car with the wind in the hair must surely be the epitome of “La Dolce Vita”!
1967 Maserati Mistral 3.7 Coupe Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: AM*109644
Estimate: €190,000 - €230,000
Maserati’s survival strategy for the 1960s centred on establishing the company – which hitherto had mainly concentrated on its Grand Prix and sports car racing activities – as a producer of road cars. The Modena marque’s new era began in 1957 with the launch at the Geneva Salon of the Touring-bodied 3500GT. A luxury ‘2+2’, the 3500GT drew heavily on Maserati’s competition experience, employing a tubular chassis frame and an engine derived from the 350S sports car unit of 1956. Suspension was independent at the front by wishbones and coil springs, while at the back there was a conventional live axle/semi-elliptic arrangement. The 3500GT’s designer was none other than Giulio Alfieri, creator of the immortal Tipo 60/61 ‘Birdcage’ sports-racer and the man responsible for developing the 250F into a World Championship winner. The twin-overhead-camshaft, six-cylinder engine was a close relative of that used in the 250F and developed around 220bhp initially, later examples producing 235bhp on Lucas mechanical fuel injection. Built initially with drum brakes and four-speed transmission, the 3500GT was progressively updated, gaining five speeds, front disc brakes and, finally, all-disc braking. The next development of the theme arrived in 1962. Built on the short-wheelbase chassis of the Vignale-bodied 3500GT spyder, the Sebring coupé featured a five-speed gearbox, disc brakes and fuel injection as standard equipment, with automatic transmission, air conditioning and a limited-slip differential available as options. Last of the classic six-cylinder Maseratis, the Pietro Frua-styled Mistral commenced production in 1963. The 3.7-litre version of the famous long-stroke engine was fitted to most cars, other options being the 3.5-litre or, from 1966, the 4.0-litre unit, all of which came with Lucas fuel injection. A handsome two-seater on a shortened, square-tube chassis, the Mistral was built in coupé and spyder versions, the former’s opening rear window hatch making it unusually practical for a sports car. A five-speed gearbox, disc brakes and fuel injection were standard equipment; automatic transmission, air conditioning and a limited-slip differential the options. Production ceased in 1970, by which time a total of 827 coupés and 123 spyders had been built. File Image
This incredible example has been restored with what can only be described as a total obsession to detail. Originally registered in 1967, the 3700 Coupe was more recently purchased by a German businessman and enthusiast who undertook an exhaustive â€œnut and boltâ€? restoration to a fabulous standard. Much of the work was contracted back to Maserati themselves, such as the engine and transmission, final preparation and painting of the coachwork, and the interior trimwork. Our vendor was very particular about the quality of the finish, as such only original components were used throughout, even though this increased the length of time taken to complete the project. Finished in Grigio Metallic with a Tan Leather interior, this stunning Maserati is offered at a fraction of the price suggested in the valuation report. An unrepeatable and exceptional opportunity to own one of the very best of this model on the market today.
1965 Dodge Monaco Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: D456138536
Estimate: €33,000 - €40,000
On introduction on September 25th, 1964, for the 1965 model year, the Dodge Monaco was intended to compete with the Pontiac Grand Prix in what came to be known as the personal luxury market, but ended up filling in for Dodge in the fullsize, luxury line instead. The 1965 Monaco was based on the Custom 880 two-door hardtop body. The Monaco received special badging, different taillight and grille treatment, and a sportier interior with a full-length center console, as well as a 383 cu in, 325bhp V8 engine as standard equipment. Larger, more powerful engines were also available as options. The Monaco competed with the Ford LTD, a top-of-the-line model in the Galaxie 500 series, the Caprice package for the Impala Sport Sedan, as well as the 1966 Plymouth VIP model for its Fury series and the Ambassador DPL offered by American Motors. These models provided competition for mid-priced sedans like Chrysler, Oldsmobile, Buick, and Mercury. 1991 Porsche 964 Carrera RSR Evocation The exclusive Type 964 Carrera RSR, of which only 51 examples were built, was the Turbo-bodied racing version of the Carrera RS. It was fitted with a 3.8-litre type M64/04 RSR-specific engine. This dry-sumped, single-ignition powerplant developed an impressive 350 horsepower and 284 foot-pounds of torque, all fed through an uprated five-speed manual transaxle. Unbiased reviewers viewed those official numbers as very conservative. A more realistic figure, they declared, was at least 375 horsepower. Car and Driver magazine produced a 0–60 mph result of 3.7 seconds, quicker than a Ferrari F40. Ever dominant, the RSR racked up stunning race results from the outset, winning overall at the Spa 24 Hours, Suzuka 1000 KM, and 24 Hours of Interlagos. There was also a class victory at Le Mans, a 1-4 class sweep at the Daytona 24 Hours, and another class victory at Sebring. Wonderfully original and still sporting its first coat of paint, this is a true survivor with extensive history including the original purchase invoice. A winner of several shows in the USA this is a wonderfully original and unmolested car.
1983 Porsche 911 SC Cabriolet Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ91ZDS150461
Estimate: €42,000 - €48,000
A ‘modern classic’ if ever there was one, Porsche’s long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter’s rear-engine layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356’s VWbased suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche’s single-overhead-camshaft, aircooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. Porsche’s first take on a 911 convertible had been the Targa model of 1965, a ‘halfway house’ design chosen because of fears that a genuine soft-top would not meet US Federal safety regulations, but by 1981 the company felt able to proceed with the genuine article. Introduced in normally aspirated 3.0-litre form in 1982, the 911 Cabriolet lost little, if any, rigidity with the deletion of the Targa roll-over bar, while its speedily raised/lowered top featured a detachable, zip-fastened rear window. Introducing a ‘proper’ soft-top proved to be a shrewd move by Porsche, as sales immediately exceed those of the Targa version. Finished in the very 1980s shade of Grand Prix white with a black leather interior, this fantastic and rare early 911 Cabriolet was first registered in the summer of 1983, the last year of production for the SC model, and also the first for the new cabriolet format. More recently the 911 has been part of a larger collection, which has now been reduced hence the Porsche becoming available on the market. We understand the engine had benefited from an overhaul, and with just 90,000 kilometres recorded is ready to be enjoyed right away. This lovely 911 is offered with a US (California) title, clean Carfax report, and with European taxes paid.
1984 Lamborghini Jalpa Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: ZA9J00000ELA12098
Estimate: €60,000 - €70,000
The Lamborghini Jalpa made its public debut at the March 1981 Geneva Auto Show; joining the Countach, this open coupe (removable “targa-style” roof section) has been referred to as Lamborghini’s “practical exotic car.” The Jalpa was penned by Marcello Gandini of Carozzeria Bertone, who designed many preceding Lamborghini’s. A new “flying buttress” roofline extension, along either side of the engine bay, created a sharp fastback profile featuring jutting air intakes and uncompromising lines to create a car that looks purposeful and intimidating. The November 1982 issue of Road & Track magazine featured the Jalpa on the cover and commented that “Exotic automobiles are wonderfully exciting. They provoke emotional responses among car enthusiasts that often transcend all rational considerations.” They continued that people “go crazy over a swoopy, low exotic car whose rumbling exhaust note synchronizes with their pulse rate.”
Recognized as the final attempt at creating an entry level Lamborghini with a V-8 engine; the Jalpa was another name given in true Lamborghini tradition, taken from a famous breed of fighting bulls, just like the Miura model name from the late 1960s. This new model was based on the original Urraco, but the Jalpa was more a successor to the Silhouette in concept with the similar open top, targa-style roof configuration of one large removable panel above the driver and passenger. One of a mere 411 examples produced, this rare Jalpa has covered a mere 18,000 miles from new. In the ownership of a Lamborghini enthusiast for some years, the Jalpa has been used sparingly and dry stored when not in use. A rare car and rapidly becoming very collectible.
1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution I Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WDB2010361F601406
Estimate: €50,000 - €70,000
The Evolution 1 was the answer to the BMW M3 Sport Evolution, with new spoilers and wider wheel arches. Many changes were made to brakes and suspension, with full SLS (self levelling suspension) allowing the vehicle ride height to be adjusted from a 3-position interior switch. This beautiful “Blau Schwarz (199U)” Evolution 1 (number 200 of 500) was built in March 1989 and delivered through the official dealership Fahrzeug-Werke Lueg Gmbh in Bochum, who serviced the car from 1989 until 2000, after which it was stored before a recent mechanical overhaul by its second owner. This very well sorted Evolution I has recently benefited from a complete and thorough service and check up with an official dealer, and is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. First registered to Bremen on 28th March 1989, this rare Evolution was finished in Blue/Black metallic with a black leather interior and a number of factory options. Owned by a UK-based enthusiast since 2001, the Evo I is in good condition condition in all respects, and is supplied with invoices for maintenance over the years to the tune of £12,000, in addition to a UK MoT certificate and UK V5 document. With just 90,000 kilometres recorded this is a very sensibly priced example of an increasingly rare and desirable homologation special.
1975 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
Rolls-Royce’s adoption of unitary construction for its new Silver Shadow and T-Series Bentley necessitated the reorganisation of in-house coachbuilder H J Mulliner, Park Ward to enable it to produce new designs on the Shadow floorpan. Recalling the firm’s glamorous Grands Routiers of pre-war days such as the Phantom II Continental, these final coachbuilt models were limited to just two, a two-door coupé or similar convertible, the former arriving in March 1966 and the latter in September the following year. Some of the frontal panels were shared with the standard four-door saloon, but otherwise the new bodyshells were unique, featuring a distinctive dipping upper wing line with parallel crease, and revised, more rounded posterior. Construction involved shuttling the bodyshells between the Crewe factory and MPW’s Willesden plant, a necessarily lengthy process that took all of 20 weeks for the saloon and slightly longer for the more complex convertible. These exclusive cars were hand built in the best traditions of British coachbuilding using only materials of the finest quality including Wilton carpeting, Connolly hide and burr walnut veneers, such painstaking attention to detail resulting in a price some 50% higher than that of the standard Silver Shadow. Nevertheless, demand for these more glamorous alternatives to the much more numerous four-door model was strong right from the start, a state of affairs that resulted in them being given their own model name – ‘Corniche’ – in March 1971. In Corniche form Rolls-Royce’s well-tried 6.7-litre V8 produced around 10% more power than standard and proved capable of propelling the car to a top speed in excess of 120mph with sportscar-beating acceleration to match. The model proved a major success for Rolls-Royce; periodically revised and up-dated, it remained in production well into the 1990s, the last (Convertible) examples being delivered in 1995. This most elegant early Corniche was supplied to Rome, Italy, late in 1975, having later been brought to the United Kingdom in 1980. In previous ownership for c. 20 years, the Corniche has benefited from much attention over the years. The Corniche benefits from a recent overhaul to the braking system, and is offered with factory build sheets, service history in the UK and Athens, and recent Avon tyres on each corner. With just three owners from new, this desirable European-delivered example shows a very sensible 88,000 kilometres recorded. Finished in its original shade of Caribbean Blue with a dark blue leather interior, this is a wonderfully stylish RollsRoyce, and we feel exceptional value for the 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.
1963 BMW 3200 CS Coupe by Bertone - two owners from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 76122
Estimate: €110,000 - €140,000
The 3200 CS was launched in 1962, and it was in many ways a watershed car for BMW. It marked the end of the traditional large V-8 cars, yet it was also the earliest ancestor of today’s BMW coupés, which offer high style, high performance, and high comfort in equal measure. The styling by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Bertone was crisp and tailored, with wide windows and a spacious interior, and it appeared very modern for its era. Numerous styling cues used on the 3200 CS during its four-year lifespan were carried over to later BMWs, with the most notable being the “Hofmeister kink” on the C-pillar. In addition, the 3200 CS was the first BMW to feature the hallmark “roundie” tail lamps, which were made famous on the ever-popular 2002.
This matching numbers and only two owner example was first delivered new in 1963 to Zurich, Switzerland, later finding its way to Belgium in recent years. In 2015 the BMW was treated to much restoration and refurbishment work, as such the impression inside and out is very attractive, the engine and gearbox are in good order and run very nicely. One of around fifty 3200 CS known to survive of the 603-car production run, and beautifully finished in black with a well preserved beige interior, this impressive 3200 is offered with Belgian papers and a BMW certificate of authenticity.
1954 Austin-Healey 100/4 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €60,000 - €80,000
In 1951, when the established range of Healey cars was selling steadily but out of the price range of most enthusiasts, Donald Healey realised there was a market for a relatively low-priced but high performance sports car. A readily available, reliable and tuneable engine was required and BMC agreed to supply the 2,660cc four cylinder unit from its Austin A90 model, together with Austin’s three-speed with overdrive gearbox. For the chassis of the new car Healey and his son Geoffrey designed a simple but torsionally strong ladder frame using the A90’s independent coil spring/wishbone front suspension and a leaf-sprung rear axle located by Panhard rod, with drum brakes all round. Finally, an attractive, open two seater body was penned by Gerry Coker, the final rendition of which incorporated some last minute changes by Donald Healey himself. The result, launched to a surprised public at the 1952 London Motor Show, caused a sensation and met with immediate approval from press and enthusiasts alike. It looked superb with performance to match; producing 94bhp at 4,000rpm, it could achieve 111mph with the windscreen folded flat and 0-60mph acceleration in 10.3 seconds.
sides of the Atlantic.
Called simply the Healey 100, the new car also caught the attention of BMC supremo Leonard Lord who at once struck an agreement with Healey to market the car as the Austin Healey 100. Production began in May 1953 and it wasn’t long before the model was selling like hot cakes and featuring strongly in production racing on both
This early 100/4 went through a comprehensive body-off restoration during 2017 – 2018, including a rebuild of the matching numbers four cylinder 2660cc engine. In conjunction with the 3 speed (with overdrive) gearbox, we understand the car drives very nicely indeed. Finished in Ice Blue over Old English White, and with a lovely Dark Blue leather interior and chromed wire wheels, this is a wonderful looking and driving classic car for the enthusiast and collector.
1991 Porsche 964 Carrera Cup – 3.8 RSR Specification Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 1505033
Estimate: €180,000 - €200,000
The exclusive Type 964 Carrera RSR, of which only 51 examples were built, was the Turbo-bodied racing version of the Carrera RS. It was fitted with a 3.8-litre type M64/04 RSR-specific engine. This dry-sumped, single-ignition powerplant developed an impressive 350 horsepower and 284 foot-pounds of torque, all fed through an uprated five-speed manual transaxle. Unbiased reviewers viewed those official numbers as very conservative. A more realistic figure, they declared, was at least 375 horsepower. Car and Driver magazine produced a 0–60 mph result of 3.7 seconds, quicker than a Ferrari F40. Ever dominant, the RSR racked up stunning race results from the outset, winning overall at the Spa 24 Hours, Suzuka 1000 KM, and 24 Hours of Interlagos. There was also a class victory at Le Mans, a 1-4 class sweep at the Daytona 24 Hours, and another class victory at Sebring.

1955 Austin Healey Ward Special Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: BN1/222490
Estimate: €90,000 - €100,000
On 27 January 1955, Austin Healey 100 chassis no. BN1/22490 rolled off the Longbridge production line. The car was a black RHD export model destined for Sydney, Australia. The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate shows that the car had a red interior and black hood, wire wheels and a laminated windscreen – and (surprise!) no heater. Its engine no. was the same as the chassis no. - H1B22490-M – and the body no. 7491. Some time in the next few months the car was shipped to Australia. A Vicroads (Victorian road transport authority) archive search shows that it was registered in Victoria in 1955, registration no. GLE 273. Information provided with the car says Clive sold the car in 1959 to Tony Pickett, a Melbourne car dealer, According to Iain McPherson, however, the next owner was a D Corben. Iain’s records also show that at this time the car was painted red with a silver GT stripe. The same records show Bob Gray as the next owner, then Panda Motors from September 1963 until December 1964. Panda Motors was a business co-owned by Lindsay Hughes and his brother. Lindsay was later a partner with Neville Ham in Neville Lindsay Motors of Essendon who were one of Australia’s first Toyota car dealers. Lindsay developed the car and raced it extensively with varying degrees of success at Sandown, Winton, Albury, Philip Island and Calder until 1965, after which it sat in storage for a number of years. The following history has been pieced together from information provided by the Healey Factory, and from conversations with most of the previous owners – Clive Millis, Lindsay Hughes, Peter Marshell, John Best and Peter Rowland – and with Sid Ward’s son Andrew.
Sid Ward came to Australia from England in the early ‘50’s, where he had worked as a coachbuilder since apprenticed. According to Lindsay Hughes, he learned is craft making mudguards for buses. In Melbourne, he worked for Baker and Tait, then Bibby Panels and then on his own account as Tudor Replicars and Sid Ward Vintage Coachbuilder. His main business was coachwork in aluminium and timber, though at one time he assisted the Bolwell brothers with moulds for their original Bolwell Healey and the first Mk 5 Bolwells. According to Andrew Ward, the Bolwell Nagari, then at the concept stage, was one source of inspiration for the Healey-based coupe. Sid passed away in the early ‘70’s, however his Andrew has a large collection of photographs of his father’s projects, showing his bodies on SS Jaguar, Lagonda, Bugatti, Riley, Alvis, MG, Hispano Suiza, Lancia, Amilcar, Bentley and many more. There is also a large collection of 8mm home movies one of which shows Sid judging a Rolls Royce Concours d’Elegance in 1967, and a brief glimpse of the Ward Special nearing completion in his garage. Andrew also recalls his father building Repco Brabham panels for Jack, and a series of MG TC bodies for American customers – and some doughnut vans, some of which may still be around in Sydney! Although he is well known for his coach-building on all vintage vehicles, his best remembered project was the well-known duck’s tail body he built on the only Australian Rolls Royce Phantom One owned then by Don Sheils of Melbourne. Delivered to Sydney, Australia in 1955, this BN1 was fitted with an Ausca race body two years later and campaigned locally by Lindsay Hughes in the 1960’s with some success. In 1967 Hughes commissioned Sid Ward to build a full aluminium coupe body which the car still wears today. Not only a rare piece of Australian motor-racing history but one of the finest coachbuilt Healey specials to have been produced, this exceptionally rare example would be a credit to any collection.
The Harald Ertl 1979 BMW M1 World Land Speed Record Breaker Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WBSS9910004301150
Estimate: Refer Department
BMW’s glorious M1 supercar is a rare mix of stunning performance and practicality. Whenever it has been compared to other high performance sports cars from the 1970s and 80s by the motoring press it is always the BMW which comes out on top. The original concept was for a car which BMW could compete with in the Ferrari type market place, but which provided BMW-style reliability. However the Bavarian company were sufficiently aware of their inexperience in this field so Lamborghini was called in to design and develop the car, with the intention that they would be built under licence in the Sant’ Agata manufacturer’s factory. However at the crucial time Lamborghini went through one of their periodic financial crises and takeovers, so none of the production examples were actually built in Italy.
The bodywork was styled by Giugiaroâ€™s, Ital Design; with stunning compact two door coupe coachwork which accommodated two occupants and a mid-mounted six cylinder twin cam 24 valve BMW Motorsport engine with fuel injection. In this application 277 bhp was coaxed out of the superb motor, allowing a maximum speed in excess of 160 mph. and a 0-60 mph. sprint in 5.5 seconds. Handling was vice less and reliability was excellent. Furthermore, levels of comfort were of a degree unheard of in a mid-engined supercar up till then. This extraordinary BMW M1 was built to standard specification in 1979 and delivered to itâ€™s first owner in Berlin the following year. In 1981 the car was purchased by renowned racing driver, Harald Ertl, the following year; at which point the car went through an extreme makeover! Developed in conjunction with British Petroleum who were looking to promote their new Autogas product, this unique M1 was hoping to break 300km/h to set a new record.
Using Gustav Hoecker Sportwagen-Service GmbH, Ertl had the M1 engine fitted with twin KKK turbochargers developing in the region of 410bhp. On 17th October, 1981, Ertl managed to achieve a record breaking 301.4km/h. This wonderfully sleek and even more aggressively-styled M1 has recently been unearthed from a garage in East London, â€˜lostâ€™ for nearly a quarter of a century and coming to the market for the first time since 1993; this is possibly the rarest M1 in the models history. Undoubtedly a piece of motoring history and the subject of several magazine articles, this is a hugely interesting prospect for any serious enthusiast or collector.
1964 Maserati Mistral 3.7 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: AM 109*090*IGM
Estimate: €160,000 – €170,000
In 1964, Maserati offered a range of spectacular motorcars, with the Mistral and Quattroporte joining the Sebring, 3500 GT, and 3500 GT Spyder. Maserati was building upon the success of the 3500 GT and Sebring when it commissioned Pietro Frua to design a new body to be placed upon an updated Tipo 109 chassis. The two-seat coupé was named “Mistral”, after the strong winds blowing from the Mediterranean coast in the south of France, at the suggestion of Colonel John Simone, the French Maserati importer. The Mistral name was intended to represent speed, and the car certainly lived up to its promise. This was to be Maserati’s last car powered by its famed and well-proven straight-six engine, which had descended from the company’s 350S sports racing cars of the 1950s. A Salisbury rear axle handled the power from a ZF five-speed manual gearbox—a traditional tried-and-tested Maserati-type drivetrain. Whilst the Mistral was similar in length to its Sebring predecessor, it had a much more lithe and rounded profile, with a low beltline and curved glass. The relatively long bonnet was accented with a small air scoop, slim bumper, and a split air intake. Typical of Italian sports car construction at the time, the body was constructed in steel, whilst the doors, bonnet, and boot lid were fashioned out of aluminium. When unveiled, it was considered by many to be one of Frua’s finest designs.
A stunning matching numbers example in light blue offered with correspondence from Maserati confirming its engine number. Produced in 1964 and first registered in January of that year, this car enjoyed an engine overhaul in August of 2012 to the sum of â‚Ź32,000 EUR. There was a lucas injection overhaul in 2015 and total invoices for maintenance come to â‚Ź75,000 EUR. In superb condition, this example comes with German papers and Maserati confirmation of authenticity around production and vehicle numbers.
1991 Opel Lotus Omega - 375 kilometers from new Registration Number: Unregistered
Chassis Number: SCC000019M1284656
Estimate: €80,000 - €90,000
Take a pedestrian executive car and hand it to the Lotus engineers at Hethel to work their magic and the end result is a 377bhp super saloon able to hold its head high against rivals from the BMW M sport and Mercedes Benz AMG. The base 3-litre twin overhead camshaft 24 valve engine was bored and stroked to 3.6 litres, Lotus strengthened the block, upgraded the cylinder head, replaced the crankshaft, pistons and connecting rods and bolted on a pair of Garrett T25 turbochargers with intercoolers. With the Opel/Vauxhall standard gearbox unable to handle the huge additional torque (419 lb-ft), ZFs 6-speed enabled the Lotus Omega to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds, 0-100 in an astonishing 11.1 seconds and going on to a top speed of 186 mph (achieved in 5th rather than 6th gear) , a controversial figure, given that almost all of its rivals adhered to a gentleman’s agreement restricting the top speed of their super saloons to 155 mph. Obviously, with Lotus reputation for producing sweet-handling cars, they transformed the handling of the car, converting the rear suspension from an inferior semi-trailing arm set up to a multi-link setup offering vastly superior geometry. Fitment of 17” Ronal alloys enabled Lotus to squeeze in larger vented brake discs and four-pot calipers. With a limited slip differential and larger tyres, the Super Omega/Carlton was now more than capable of handling all that additional power.
Only produced from 1990 until 1992, a total of 950 Lotus Omega/Carltons were ever built. 1 of only 415 models produced for the German market, this incredible 1991 Lotus Omega has never been registered on the road in its 28 years. The Omega shows a mere 375 kilometers from new, having been stored very carefully by our vendor, and of course used extremely sparingly. As you can imagine the Lotus is presented in factory fresh condition. An amazing opportunity to own not only a piece of motoring history but effectively a genuinely brand new modern Lotus Omega, an opportunity not to be missed.

Chassis Number: AR*225932
Estimate: €22,000 - €30,000 No Reserve
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta was first introduced at the 1954 Turin Motor Show. The pretty little coupé was powered by the jewel like all alloy 1290cc twin overhead cam engine that incorporated hemispherical combustion chambers and domed pistons. The engine was mated to an alloy cased four speed gearbox. The car took the motoring press by storm as the performance and styling was a revelation for a production car in 1954. In 1955 the Berlina (saloon) was introduced with similar mechanical specifications. These early models were known as 750 series (not aligned with engine size) and in 1960 the 101 series was introduced. The new series of the Giulietta incorporated many upgrades particularly to the styling and trim details. Giulietta production in coupé, spider and berlina forms spanned from 1954 to 1965. The Berlina Ti models (Turismo Internazionale) were born in 1957 and were the luxury model of the range. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this wonderful Turismo Internazionale model is finished in dark grey with the correct grey cloth interior. The Alfa is complete with its ASI Gold Plate and is ready to be enjoyed by its next lucky owner.

The Bentley Turbo R is a high-performance car which was produced from 1985 to 1999. The “R” stood for “Roadholding”, to set it apart from its predecessor. It initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo and also sported a re-tuned suspension and wider tyres on alloy wheels, a first for a Bentley. From the 1987 model year, the Turbo R’s V8 engine was upgraded with fuel injection for added torque. Motor Trend called the Turbo R, “the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name”. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, the wonderful Bentley Turbo R offered here is finished in Grey with interior hide in Parchment.

Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €16,000 - €20,000 No Reserve
The second generation of the full-size K5 Blazer was produced from 1973 through 1991. For 1988, four new colors became available including forest green metallic, light mesa brown metallic, dark mesa brown metallic, and bright blue metallic. The 1988 Blazer also received a fixed mast antenna which replaced the prior windshield antenna. It also received a trip odometer as part of the gauge package cluster, new door handle seal, and an improved pulse windshield wiper control. GM temporarily changed the usual ‘C/K’ designation to ‘R’ and ‘V’ for the 1987 through 1991 model years. This had been done to avoid confusion with the GMT400-based Chevrolet C/K pickup trucks, which were introduced in 1988, during the overlap period.Throttlebody injection had been introduced in 1987 in the truck engines, and the 350 was made the standard power plant. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this wonderful Blazer is finished in grey metallic with a blue velour interior. A great example of really cool “go anywhere” usable classic.

From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector 1970 Fiat 124 Familiare - Offered at No Reserve 5,900 kilometres from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €6,000 - €8,000 No Reserve
The Fiat 124 is a small family car manufactured and marketed by Fiat between 1966 and 1974. The saloon superseded the Fiat 1300 and was the basis for several variants including a station wagon, a four-seater coupé (124 Sport Coupé), a two-seater convertible (124 Sport Spider) and a lengthened and more luxurious version, the 125, launched in early 1967. Following its introduction in 1966 with a publicity stunt, with Fiat filming the dropping of the car by parachute from a plane, the 124 won the 1967 European Car of the Year. As a clean-sheet design by Oscar Montabone, the chief engineer responsible for its development, the 124 used only the all-synchromesh gear box from the Fiat 1500. The 124 featured a spacious interior, advanced coil spring rear suspension, disc brakes on all wheels and lightweight construction. A 5-door station wagon variant (named 124 Familiare on its home market) as well as the 124 Sport Spider variants debuted at the 48th Turin Motor show in November 1966. A few months later, at the March 1967 Geneva Motor Show, the 124 Sport Coupé completed the range. The two Sport models were powered by an all-new 1.4-litre dual overhead camshaft engine producing 90 DIN-rated PS (66 kW; 89 hp) at 6,500 rpm. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this rare Familiare model has covered a mere 5,904 kilometres from new. Finished in grey with an original red leatherette interior, this well preserved example is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.

Chassis Number: WDB1240501A777090
Estimate: €10,000 - €13,000 No Reserve
W124 is the Mercedes-Benz internal chassis designation reference for the 1985 to 1995 version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Due to the high cost of German engineering and build quality, the model was designed to last many miles with awards won by high mileage versions. Front suspension is by way of a separate spring and damper while the rear suspension features the Mercedes multi-link axle introduced in 1982 on the 190 and which is now standard on many modern cars. Much of the 124’s engineering and many of its features were advanced automotive technology at introduction and incorporated innovations that were adopted throughout the industry. It had one of the lowest coefficient of drag of any vehicle at the time due to its aerodynamic body that included plastic moulding for the undercarriage to streamline airflow beneath the car, reducing fuel consumption and wind noise. Another feature of the W124 is the single windscreen wiper that had an eccentric mechanism at its base extending the wiper’s reach to the top corners of the windscreen. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this automatic 300CE has covered a mere 22,000 kilometres from new.

With its small, rear-engine 850 model doing well in the marketplace, for 1968 Fiat introduced an improved version, designated 850 Special. The 850, which had been new for 1964, featured an 843 cc water-cooled four at the rear, and a four-speed transaxle, fully-synchronized with Porsche synchros. It developed 34 bhp, 37 in a high-performance version. Seating was comfortable and a top speed of 75 mph was comparable with some 1,100 cc cars like the Morris Minor or Ford Anglia. At the 1965 Geneva motor show a fastback coupe was introduced, a 2+2 with 47 bhp engine. A sporty spider was also available, designed and built by Bertone. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this very cute Fiat 850 has covered a mere 4974 kilometres, and would certainly make an fun proposition for the next owner.

Chassis Number: WDB1260391/3045
Estimate: €18,000 - €22,000 No Reserve
In 1979 the type series W 126 replaced the preceding model from the series W 116. In the 1980’s the 126 became the icon of West German politicians and business tycoons. Members of the federal government were almost exclusively driven in these cars, however, usually in an armoured version. The former chancellor Helmut Kohl had a model from this series and put it out of service only after it had done ca. 500,000 kilometres. Even Nelson Mandela had a 500 SE. A total of 74,060 units of the coupé were built. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, we were impressed by how original this 500SE is. The S class is still fitted with its period cell phone, the blue leather interior is exceptionally well preserved, and the overall impression is one of a well loved older car. A super example of the nicest classics you can own and drive.
From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector 1969 Fiat 850 Coupe - Offered at No Reserve Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €9,000 - €12,000 No Reserve
The Fiat 850 was introduced as a two-door saloon in 1964 to replace the 600 with a more powerful 843cc engine. The sport coupé and spider appeared in 1965, both drew praise from testers of the day for having a decent turn of speed and excellent handling, Road and Track magazine described the coupé as ‘One of the best balanced and handsome designs available’. It is a little known fact that they were designed by one-time Ferrari designer Boano. The engines had higher compression pistons than the saloon with around 25% more power and would do nearly 50mpg, they also had disc front brakes as well as other improvements. It was revised in 1968 with twin headlights and rear lights, plus a 903cc engine but lost some of the finer detailing, charm and proportion of the original Boano design. There were several Abarth versions with 1000-2000cc engines. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this wonderful little car is presented in a very period shade of yellow with a black leatherette interior. This is surely one of the nicest examples around and is hugely entertaining little sports car with bags of character!

Chassis Number: 00523291
Estimate: €9,000 - €14,000 No Reserve
In October 1985 Lancia unveiled alongside the road-going Delta S4 a new version of the HF, renamed Delta HF turbo in view of the four-wheel-drive HF début awaited after the next summer. To address some criticisms the car was given less subdued styling features and more generous equipment to differentiate it from the other Deltas: red “HF turbo” scripts on the grille, the side skirts and the rear hatch, a three-spoke sport steering wheel, dual wing mirrors, a two-colour pinstripe along the mid-bodyside character line and Pirelli P6 tyres on 14-inch Cromodora alloy wheels with a new 8-hole design. Price, technical specifications and performance remained mostly unchanged. When in later years the more powerful, four-wheeldrive HF models were introduced the HF turbo remained on sale alongside them. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this nice original HF Turbo is well presented in Grigio metallic with the correct period grey velour interior. With the prices of Integrale versions now approaching six figures, this is a great alternative at a fraction of the price.

Chassis Number: 121042-10-014292
Estimate: â‚Ź90,000 - â‚Ź120,000 No Reserve
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 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 300 SL. Teamed with a four-speed manual gearbox, sleek aerodynamics and comparatively light weight allowed for a top speed of 115mph and a respectable 0-60 time of 13.0 seconds.
Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this outstanding example has enjoyed a hugely comprehensive restoration and is ready to be enjoyed by its lucky next owner. Beautifully finished in cream with a newly retrimmed wine red leather interior, this is one of the nicest examples we have seen for a long time.

Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €75,000 - €100,000 No Reserve
Introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 1963 as replacement for the 190SL, the 230SL abandoned its predecessor’s four-cylinder engine in favour of a 2.3 liter fuel-injected six cylinder engine derived from that of the 220SE and producing 150bhp. An instant classic, the body design was all-new while beneath the skin the running gear was conventional Mercedes-Benz, featuring all-round independent suspension (by swing axles at the rear), disc front/drum rear brakes and a choice of four-speed manual or automatic transmissions. With a top speed in excess of 120mph, the 230SL debuted competition victory and ended up winning the Spa-Sofia-Liège Rally in the hands of Eugen Bohringer.
Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this beautiful example has been restored to a high standard and wants no more than to be enjoyed by its lucky next owner. Finished in gunmetal grey with a sumptuous wine red leather interior, the 230SL is fitted with the much sportier four-speed manual gearbox. This lovely SL is a true credit to its owner and a tempting prospect for the collector.

From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector 1966 Lancia Flavia Coupé 1,8, ASI Targa Oro - Offered at No Reserve Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 815330*013106
Estimate: €20,000 - €30,000 No Reserve
The Lancia Flavia was produced from 1961 through 1975 with a total of 105,848 examples produced. The design was courtesy of Professor Fessia and initially offered only as a four door saloon. Mounted in the engine bay was an aluminum boxer engine that displaced 1.5-liters. Power was sent to the front wheels with Dunlop discs being placed on all four corners. The saloon was soon joined by a Pininfarina designed coupe sitting on a shortened wheelbase. Other coachbuilders were soon creating their own interpretation of the Flavia, including Vignale who produced a two door convertible, and Zagato created a two-door sports version constructed of lightweight design principles. The Vignale and Zagato versions would continued until Fiat took control of the company in the late 1960s and these two were discontinued. At which time, the coupe and saloon versions were given new bodywork. A 1.8-liter engine was introduced in 1963, featuring mechanical fuel injection using the Kugelfischer system and mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The engine was replaced in 1967 by a 2.0-liter version available as either a carbureted version of fuel injection. A four- or five-speed manual gearbox were also offered. This lovely Pininfarina coupe, with it’s beautiful elegant lines, is similar in design to the Ferrari 250GTE making it a grand touring classic sports car at a fraction of the price. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, and finished in silver with a lovely black leather interior and ASI gold plates, what a pleasant way to enjoy “La Dolce Vita”.
From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector 1962 Fiat 600D - Offered at No Reserve Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €7,000 - €10,000 No Reserve
In 1955 FIAT replaced its revolutionary Topolino small saloon, which had been around in one form or another since 1936, introducing the successor ‘600’ model at that year’s Geneva Salon. Historically significant as the first rear-engined FIAT, the 600 was a masterpiece of automotive packaging, cramming accommodation for four into the same 2,000mm wheelbase as the outgoing two-seater Topolino, which it undercut on price. The integral chassis/body featured independent suspension all round, while the 633cc water-cooled four-cylinder overhead-valve engine produced 22bhp, which was good enough for a top speed of 100km/h. The most significant upgrade to this outstandingly successful design occurred in 1960 with the introduction of the 600D, which featured a 767cc engine, altered gearing and greatly improved performance. Although conceived as basic transport for the masses, the 600 would prove to be extremely capable on the racetrack, where examples modified by Carlo Abarth regularly turned in giant-killing performances, dominating their class and humbling larger-engined rivals. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this delightful original example is finished in white with a black leatherette interior. All in all a huge amount of fun in a small compact package!

The Mercedes-Benz W126 is a series of saloon vehicles manufactured from September 1979 as the successor to the earlier W116 line, the W126 being the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz flagship to officially bear the S-Class name referring to Sonderklasse or ‘special class’. The W126 was initially offered in straight six, V8, and turbo diesel saloon models. Compared to its predecessor, the W126 was more aerodynamic, fuel efficient, capacious, and more powerfully engined. The W126 range also introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations including the first airbag (supplemental restraint systems), seatbelt pre-tensioners, and traction control. The W126 had a twelve-year production run between 1979 and 1991, the longest of any S-Class generation since the flagship models were first built in the mid-1950’s. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, unusually this rare variant is fitted with a manual gearbox which will suit the more enthusiastic drivers amongst collectors. Finished in metallic black with a light grey leather interior, and sitting on subtle steel wheels, this car is the epitome of conservative elegance.

From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector 1992 Mercedes-Benz 560 - Offered at No Reserve 10,800 kilometres recorded from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WDB1260451A518284
Estimate: €17,000 - €25,000 No Reserve
Mercedes-Benz set out to build the best luxury car in the world and – for the duration of the 1980s – the W126 C-Class succeeded admirably in achieving this goal. The W126 model employed a new range of light alloy V8 engines and a more aerodynamic shape (with a class leading 0.36cd) over the previous S-Class, significantly improving fuel consumption. A number of innovative safety systems, including ABS and SRS airbags, were seen on a production car for the first time. A coupe version of the W126 was envisaged right from the outset and the elegant SEC featured distinctive pillarless styling with more sharply raked front and rear windscreens, unique front-end styling and a shorter wheelbase. Initially available in two versions, the 380SEC and 500SEC, each powered by a single-overhead cam V8 engine with Bosch electronic fuel injection and four-speed automatic transmission, the big Benz coupe enjoyed effortless performance. At the 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show three new models were unveiled, the 420SEC, 500SEC and a new flagship badged the 560SEC, along with further mechanical improvements including dualrange (Sport and Economy) automatic transmission, revised 15-inch alloy wheels and upgraded brakes. The lower body sills were redesigned, giving the SEC a cleaner look, while the 560 model benefited from 215/65 tyres, ABS, speed-sensitive suspension and various interior upgrades. The 560’s M117 V8 engine was rated at 300 bhp, with 325 lb/ft of torque on tap, resulting in a top speed of 150mph with acceleration to match. Highly prized at the time by celebrities, it remains one of the best coupés ever produced by Mercedes-Benz and this example is no exception. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this fabulous example has covered a mere 10,800 kilometres from new, and as such is in super original order with many period correct details such as the Becker Mexico cassette player fitted from new. Finished in metallic black with a matching black leather interior featuring wood inserts, this is a very well preserved example of the best Mercedes you could buy in 1989.

With over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, it is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single design platform anywhere in the world. During the 1950’s, the car was modified progressively; the most obvious visual changes being the rear windows. Towards the end of 1964, the height of the side windows and windscreen grew slightly, giving the cabin a less pinched look which coincided with the introduction of a very slightly curved ‘panoramic’ windscreen. The same body appeared throughout 1966, with a 1300cc engine in place of the 1200cc engine; it was only in the 1973 model Super Beetle that it displayed an obviously curved windscreen. It has been regarded as something of a ‘cult’ car since its 1960’s association with the hippie movement and surf culture. The Beetle has made numerous appearances in Hollywood films; most notably Disney’s ‘The Love Bug’ comedy series from 1968 to 2005, starring as a pearl-white, 1963 Beetle - racing number 53 - called ‘Herbie’. This stunning 1972 Volkswagen Beetle 1300 is presented in really nice original condition. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, unlike many others this Beetle has clearly not been modified or customised, rather kept in factory specification and maintained. Finished in silver with a black leatherette interior, this is a great starter classic and we are sure will be huge fun to drive and own.
From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector 1992 Mercedes-Benz 260 Limousine, Ex TAMoil, Ex. Colonel Gaddafi - Offered at No Reserve 9,000 kms from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €10,000 - €15,000 No Reserve
The E-Class name first appeared in with the facelifted W124 in 1993. The diesel versions continued to be the fuel economy option over the four and six-cylinder and V8 petrol engines. In 1992, Mercedes increased petrol engine power outputs further. The V8 powered saloons were named and E 420/E 500 after 1993. Likewise, the 3.0-litre cars, for example 300 E. The W124 is built on a mid-sized vehicle platform. Due to the high cost of German engineering and build quality, the W124 was designed to last many miles, with awards actually given and worn by high mileage versions. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, we understand this rare limousine version of the W124 was used as executive transport for the oil and gas provider Tamoil, and in addition for Libya’s Colonel Gaddafi when visiting Italy. Libya’s Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was Africa’s and the Arab world’s longest-ruling, most erratic, most grimly fascinating leader - presiding for 42 years over this desert republic with vast oil reserves and just 6 million people. Finished in navy blue with a grey velour interior, this exceptional example shows a mere 9,000 kilometres from new, and has clearly been preserved extremely. This is a unique example with a fascinating history - if only we could hear the conversations entered into whilst relaxing in those comfortable rear seats?
From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector 1966 Opel Admiral 2800 - Offered at No Reserve 20,882 kilometres Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 273685758
Estimate: €12,000 - €17,000 No Reserve
In 1964, Opel introduced its KAD (Kapitän, Admiral, Diplomat) “A” series models. The Admiral “A” was the middle model in this three-car range. The cars were first presented in February 1964, but volume production of the Admiral began only in May 1964: Chevrolet powered V8 Diplomats started rolling off the production line three months later, in August 1964. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this wonderful survivor has to be seen to be appreciated. Finished in dark grey with a lovely red leatherette interior, the Admiral has covered a touch over 20,000 kilometres, and as such is exceptionally well preserved. What better to use to play out your cold war spy fantasies in than a sombre 1960s large engined Opel executive car?
From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector 2008 Subaru WRX Sti - Offered at No Reserve New car with only 338 kilometres recorded Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €30,000 - €40,000 No Reserve
Thanks to a high profile in rallying, Subaru is well-renowned for its performance cars - in particular the Impreza. You could spot the previous model a mile off with its huge spoiler and booming exhaust, but the firm took a different approach and the 2008 Impreza WRX STi is a very different car compared to what went before. For starters it was a rounded hatchback (rather than a four-door boxy saloon) and the extreme styling was been toned down. As a result it was more grown up and less like it’s been fitted with aftermarket extras. It is quick of course and the 300bhp 2.5-litre turbocharged engine propels it to 60mph in a mere 4.8 seconds. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this effectively “new” Impreza has covered just over 300 kilometres since when first delivered. Your one (and probably only) opportunity to own a new (2008) Subaru Impreza WRX STi.
From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL - Offered at No Reserve One owner and just 2400 kilometres from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €35,000 - €60,000 No Reserve
The Mercedes-Benz W126 model was the successor to the earlier W116 line, and the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz flagship to officially bear the S-Class name designating Sonderklasse or ‘special class’. The W126 debuted a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other vehicles in the company’s line up. The model range also introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first airbag (supplemental restraint systems), seatbelt pre-tensioners, and traction control. Six years of development resulted in the W126 model being introduced at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt in September 1979, with design work on the coupé beginning immediately after. Because the appearance differed from the rest of the Mercedes-Benz fleet at that time, some people did not appreciate the design at its launch; compared to its predecessor, the new model had a sleeker, lower profile look, with more aerodynamic qualities than previous models. For the first time, a Mercedes-Benz saloon was not equipped with traditional chrome bumpers; polyurethane deformable bumpers were used, and visually aligned with body panels. On offer today we have an extremely rare Mercedes 560 SEL. Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this incredible survivor was bought from the showroom new in 1989 by our vendor, and in the intervening years has covered an unbelievable 2,400 kilometres. Offered in virtually as new condition throughout, this must be one of the best examples available anywhere.
1970 Porsche 911S Targa Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 9110310642
Estimate: €130,000 - €150,000
Two years after the original coupé’s introduction, a convertible 911 – the ‘Targa’, named in honour of Porsche’s numerous victories in the Sicilian classic – arrived in 1966. Expected US safety legislation had prompted an ingenious approach to the soft-top 911, the Targa sporting a hefty roll-over bar to protect the occupants in the event of an inversion, together with removable roof and rear hood sections, which were stowed in the boot. For 1969 a quieter and less leak-prone fixed rear window replaced the less than perfect rear hood, and the ever-popular Targa would continue in this form well into the 1990s, sharing countless mechanical and styling developments with its closed cousin along the way. The much loved and instantly recognisable original Targa finally bowed out at the end of the 1990s when the Cabriolet became the sole open-topped 911 with the introduction of the Type 996 range for 1999. This beautiful 1970 Porsche 911S was specified from new in the desirable Targa format and finished in fabulous Conda Green with a black interior. The Porsche went to Italy first before finding its way to the Netherlands and the current ownership. The 911S has been used for light touring events, and so is fitted with sports seats, rally safety belts and a Brantz International ´S` tripmaster. Always maintained with a Porsche specialist in recent times, and with a current technical control document, this 911S wants for nothing more than just to be driven and enjoyed to the fullest!
1986 Ferrari Testarossa Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZFAA17B000066629
Estimate: €70,000 - €90,000
Ferrari’s brand-new Testarossa, the star of the 1984 Paris Motor Show, shocked the world at its premiere. It was a dramatic departure from the 512 BBi that preceded it, as its styling was angular and aggressive, yet its design was just as functional as it was attractive. The new Testarossa not only offered a step forward in terms of styling, but Ferrari’s new supercar also improved on all aspects of the outgoing Berlinetta Boxer models. The engine produced 40 more horsepower than that of the 512 BBi, helping the Testarossa accelerate from 0–60 mph in under 5.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 180 mph. Its dramatic side strakes that ran along the side of the car helped to channel air into the dual rear-mounted radiators, which kept both the engine and cabin from overheating. By 1988, the single “Flying Mirror” was replaced with more conventional dual mirrors, and the center lock wheels were changed for similar looking wheels with five bolts. This beautiful example was delivered new in late 1986, specified in the classic combination of Rosso Corsa paint with a Nero leather interior. The Testarossa has enjoyed a major service in recent times, in addition to an upgraded differential, and is offered with its stamped service book. With the care and attention our Testarossa has received, this is a nice driving example of the definitive 80s supercar.
1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale Single ownership for over 30 years Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: AR381315
Estimate: €100,000 - €120,000
With the advent of the 1950’s Alfa Romeo was forced to rationalise its production in order to survive financially. Unable to resist the occasional indulgence, however, they still built some exceptional competition and ‘limited edition’ high performance models. One such car was the Sprint Speciale series, appearing first in 1957 with the 1,290cc Giulietta engine, and then in 1963 with the more powerful 1,570cc Giulia unit. The exquisite and extraordinary coachwork was the masterpiece of Franco Scaglione, head of design at Bertone, who had previously penned the stunning BAT series of cars, based on the Alfa Romeo 1900. The family resemblance is obvious, with unmistakable similarity of line and a favourable drag coefficient, achieved by drawing heavily on experience gained from the BAT cars. With an all-up weight of under 950kg, a five-speed gearbox and an output of ll2bhp (in Giulia form), they made excellent road cars and were equally used in competition.
The bigger 1,570cc engined Giulia, as offered here, replaced the Giulietta and was introduced in March 1963 at the Autosalon in Geneva. The 1,570cc engine reached speeds of up to 200km/h (120mph). The engine, with Weber 40 DCOE2 carburettors, was taken from Giulia Sprint Veloce and delivered 112hp of power. Production ended in 1966 with only 1,400 Giulia Sprint Speciale produced. This exceptional Sprint Speciale, offered in red with contrasting black interior, has been in the current collection for over 30 years. Described to be in very good condition throughout and with the 1,600cc engine pulling well, this Alfa would be a credit to any serious collection and is worth a close inspection.
1981 Porsche 930 RUF BTR 3.4 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ93ZCS000068
Estimate: €100,000 - €120,000
For over 60 years the name of RUF has been associated with the automotive industry, meaning quality and craftsmanship. It started in 1939 when Alois Ruf, Sr. first formed his company, ‘AUTO RUF’, as a general service garage. Today this same company is still operated at its original location on Mindelheimer Street in the quaint and quiet town of Pfaffenhausen, situated in southern Germany’s Allgäu region. While Ruf Sr. continued to strengthen and expand the company, his son, Alois Ruf Jr., was developing his own interests and passions for ‘l’art-pour-idée’ in automobiles, the true sports car. Thus during the 1960’s the younger Ruf, driven by his own interests and apprenticed to his father, gained invaluable experience by servicing and restoring Porsches. Alois Ruf’s understanding of the strengths and inherent sporting characteristics of the Porsche 911 led to the company’s concentration on this model as the platform for all of its future automotive developments. This proved to be a wise and successful choice and has become the backbone of RUF production for many years now. The first RUF enhanced Porsche model made its debut in 1975. Two years later, the turbo charged 911 engine, which was enlarged to 3.3 litres by RUF through the use of larger pistons, had a distinct performance increase compared to the standard Porsche Turbo model. This was followed in 1978 by the development of a 217 bhp 3.2 litre version of the six cylinder naturally aspirated 3.0 litre engine Porsche offered (which was far below its true performance potential). This conversion was favourably received by sports car enthusiasts worldwide and resulted in numerous orders. This early RUF BTR was sold new to a Herr. Eugen Herbst on the 2nd September 1981. Herr Herbst had the car delivered to him in RUF BTR specification with a 3.4 litre motor fitted which produced 370+ bhp, in addition to other RUF items such as the exhaust, intercooler, steering wheel, gauges, and front spoiler. The RUF travelled with its owner when he later moved to Spain, and now resides in Belgium in new ownership. In more recent years the RUF has benefitted from much mechanical work, in addition to a repaint in its original shade of Guards Red. The RUF is offered with copies of original registration documents in addition to bills for mechanical works, and a recent condition report by leading expert Ms. Gert Beets. RUF Porsches are well established in the classic car world, with huge potential for growth. A good example of a desirable classic car with truly mind-blowing performance.
1990 BMW 850i Coupe Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WBAEG21020CB02944
Estimate: €22,000 - €25,000
The wonderfully dramatic BMW 8 Series Coupé was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1989 and positively bristled with innovations, as befitted the flagship model from the makers of “the ultimate driving machine”. Luxuriously trimmed inside and packed with all the gadgets that its jet-set client base could wish for, the 8 Series turned every journey into an occasion and made the driver feel special every time they slipped behind the wheel. Initially, it was powered by a magnificent allalloy, 5-litre V12 that produced 295bhp and a mighty 330lb/ft of torque. Allied to a 5-speed automatic gearbox that could be operated manually if really rapid progress was desired, this was sufficient to generate a 0-60mph time of just 6.8 seconds on its way to a top speed electronically limited to 155mph. This early V12-powered 850i Coupe was registered in the first year of production, finished in the ever popular shade of Diamond Black Metallic with a grey velour interior and a host of factory options. The 850i has clearly been well cared for over the years, with just 60,000 kilometres and 11 services in total, the last being at just under 58,000 kilometres. Arguably the last true GT car by BMW, this is an especially interesting early example in fine condition, and well worth further inspection.
1967 Ford Mustang Convertible Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €30,000 - €35,000
The Ford Mustang was conceived in the full knowledge that in the mid 1960’s the biggest population bubble in history was now coming of age in America, ‘baby boomers’ would rule the 1960’s and there was little or no reason to think they wanted to drive cars that were anything like the ones their parents owned. The iconic Ford Mustang, therefore, created a storm when it hit the streets and it still does to this day. Ford wanted to make the Mustang affordable and consequently it needed to share much of its engineering with an existing Ford product. They decided to base the Mustang on the smallest US Ford at the time, the Falcon. The Mustang was initially offered as either a ‘notchback’ coupé or convertible. It shared its front double-wishbone/coil spring and leaf spring rear suspension with the Falcon. Compared to the Falcon the cockpit sat further back on the chassis, resulting in a longer front end and shorter rear end design, both its roof and bonnet were also lower in comparison. It’s with those proportions, and detailed with such iconic touches such as the galloping horse in the grille, the cut-away side panels and the rear lights divided into three sections, that the Mustang became a car that people were instantly passionate about. This beautiful ‘67 Mustang Convertible enjoyed a comprehensive restoration in the United States during 2017, with a thorough mechanical overhaul and more recently preparation for European road use. The ‘Stang benefits from uprated Shelby-look wheels with new tyres, lending it a real muscle car look. Offered with a US title and taxes paid, and fresh German TÜV, this wild horse is ready to hit the road!
1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €70,000 – €90,000
File Image General Motors decided to enter the sporting car segment of the US market after two years of watching the phenomenal success of the Ford Mustang. The Chevrolet Camaro, was launched in September 1966 and soon found success in Trams-Am and NASCAR racing, which endorsed its sporting image. In 1967 the Camaro appeared as official pace car in the Indianapolis 500 and the following year the Camaro driven by race legend Mark Donohue won the Trans-Am championship with Roger Penske. The example you see here today is a 1968 ‘RS’, one of only a few example produced that year. This is the most sought after variant of the Camaro, born from a project realised by Bill Mitchell, the RS distinguishes itself from other Camaro models by the black panel across its nose and sinister front grill. The car was subject to more than two years of extensive work by the previous owner, comprising an Edelbrock kit: 4 barrel carburettors, hi performance distributor, flowmaster exhaust and headers. The car is being offered from a private collection that has been subject to a meticulous programme of maintenance.
1963 Triumph TR3A Registration Number: Belgian Registered
Chassis Number: TS64799L
Estimate: €35,000 - €40,000
Lacking a sports car capable of competing with those of MG and Jaguar, Triumph started developing a new sports car, the TR2, which it displayed proudly at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1953. An enormous success both at home and abroad, it was to be expected that its successor – the TR3 – would represent evolution rather than revolution. Introduced in October 1955, the TR3 was initially little different from the preceding TR2. Changes to the 2.0-liter engine boosted power from 90 to 95bhp, but the most obvious difference was the adoption of an ‘egg box’ radiator grille. The engine developed 100bhp courtesy of a new cylinder head by mid-1956; then in August, Girling front disc brakes were introduced. The TR3A was introduced during 1957, with cosmetic changes including new front-end styling featuring a full-width grille incorporating sidelights/indicators, and locking door and trunk handles plus an improved interior. Today these charismatic Triumph sports cars remain popular for their usability, ease of maintenance, good looks and the fact that they are immense fun to drive. This wonderful British sports car has benefitted from an extensive restoration with many new parts including weather equipment and interior. Presented in the quintessential colour scheme of British Racing Green with Black leather interior, this is a car ready for summer motoring.
1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 AMG Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 11603612006064
Estimate: €30,000 - €40,000
In the late sixties, Mercedes-Benz incorporated the 6.3-litre powerplant from its 600 limousine to its S-Klasse lineup, effectively creating the world’s first European Q-Car. The next generation of flagship models, the W116, would see its top models equipped with a refined 6.9-litre engine and a hydropneumatic suspension. The 6.9 was first shown to the motoring press at the Geneva Auto Show in 1974, and produced between 1975 and 1981 in extremely limited numbers. It was billed as the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz car line, and the successor to Mercedes-Benz’s original high-performance sedan, the 300SEL 6.3. The 6.9 also has the distinction of being among the first vehicles ever produced with optional electronically controlled anti-lock brakes, first introduced by Mercedes-Benz and Bosch in 1978. AMG started off by designing and testing racing engine, later expanding its business into building custom road cars based upon standard Mercedes cars. AMG initially produced a range of unofficial upgrade and accessories packages mainly for Mercedes-Benz production models of the 1970s and 80s. This fabulous example of the powerful 6.9 model resided in a private collection for many years, supported by a very comprehensive service record. Showing under 90,000 kilometres from new, the 6.9 runs and drives fabulously, and is fitted with a number of desirable AMG options. Offered with a UK V5 document, service records and Mercedes book pack, this is a wonderful example of a true thoroughbred super saloon.
1924 Alfa-Romeo RM Torpedo Tourer Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 12239
Estimate: €100,000 - €130,000
In 1920 Alfa Romeo’s then head designer, Merosi, began work on a new model for the company that would become known as the RL. It had a 3 litre, six cylinder, overhead valve engine with a four speed gearbox and live rear suspension – all of which put it at the forefront of design. Producing 56hp, it was a lively drive and became very popular resulting in Alfa selling a total of 2640 cars. In 1923 in light of the RL’s success, Alfa Romeo produced a smaller displacement model based on the RL – this was called the RM and was similar to its predecessor but powered by a 1944cc, four cylinder engine generating 40hp. Three different versions of the RM were offered for each year of production: the 1923 Normal, 1924 Sport and 1925 Unificato. For the Sport model they raised the compression ratio giving it higher power output of 44hp and a cruising speed of 56mph. A total of around 500 RMs were produced over the 3 years of manufacture, many of which were raced including the 1923 Coppa delle Alpi.
This exceptionally rare RM Torpedo Tourer model has benefited from a thorough restoration by the current owner over a three year period, and is ready to be enjoyed once more. Finished in Alfa dark red with a green leather interior, and with a rebuilt engine and gearbox, this is a fine prospect for the vintage car enthusiast. The Alfa-Romeo is available with the wings which are currently not fitted, and is offered with Italian registration papers.
1975 Lamborghini Urraco P250 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: DGM11132M
Estimate: €90,000 - €110,000
In the early 1970’s, Lamborghini was looking to cash in on the success of the Porsche 911 and Dino 246GT. At the time, Lamborghinis were known for their V12 engines and exotic styling. The Miura was nearing the end of production, the Countach was still in development, and the only other models in the lineup were the big four seat Espada or the 2+2 Jarama. For their “entry level” sports car, Lamborghini designed an all-new V8 engine to be mounted transversely behind the seats. The 90 degree V8 was small at just 2.5 liters, but with four belt-driven cams and Weber carburetors, it made a healthy 220 horsepower at 7500 rpm. It was also compact, cleverly designed to accommodate the accessories in the middle of the “vee”. A 5-speed transaxle put power down through the rear wheels. Unlike earlier Lamborghinis, the Urraco employed unitary construction, rather than a traditional tubular space frame. Suspension was attached via subframes that were easily removable for service. The new chassis was wrapped in an attractive Bertone body that took a few details from the Miura, but remained totally individual. The Urraco was compact, not much bigger than the Dino, but thanks to the long wheelbase and cab-forward design, it was much more practical with two tiny rear seats and a usable trunk. Performance was comparable to the contemporary Dino, Merak and 911, though a bit slower off the line thanks to tall gearing. In spite of the strong top-end performance from the sweet little V8 and balanced handling on four McPherson struts, the Lamborghini Urraco struggled to find buyers and only 791 trickled out of the Sant’Agata factory between 1973 and 1979. But the Urraco platform was far from a failure. It lived on well into the 1980’s as the 3.0 liter Silhouette and 3.5 liter Jalpa.
The early P250 is considered by purists to be best of all V8 Lamborghinis, and none more so than this early example. The Urraco presents extremely well with very straight bodywork, excellent paint and interior trim finish, and sits on the correct Campagnolo alloy wheels. We understand the 2.5 litre V8 was rebuilt in 2000, and runs strongly thanks to an upgrade to electronic ignition for more reliable running. The engine bay is clean, tidy and presentable. On the road, this Urraco exhibits all of the qualities one would expect from a Lamborghini â€“ taut handling, strong brakes and a solid feel through steering. These Junior Lamborghinis are rapidly appreciating as collectors have finally taken notice of their quality and performance. Considering the Raging Bull on the nose, the jewel of an alloy V8 behind the seats and a coachbuilt Bertone body, they are still a relative bargain. Much rarer than its contemporaries, few Urracos have survived in such nice, usable condition as this. We are confident this P250 will deliver junior supercar thrills in a unique and stylish package.
2009 Audi R8 V10 Coupe Desirable 6-speed manual gearbox Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WUAZZZ4279N003381
Estimate: €70,000 - €80,000
The Audi R8, based on the Audi Le Mans Quattro concept car, designed by Frank Lamberty and Julian Hoenig, first appeared at the 2003 International Geneva Motor Show and the 2003 Frankfurt International Motor Show. The R8 road car was officially launched at the Paris Auto Show on 30th September 2006. There was some confusion with the name which the car shares with the 24 Hours of Le Mans winning R8 Le Mans Prototype (LMP). Importantly, six-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, Jacky Ickx described the R8 as ‘the best handling road car today’. The clamour for more power saw it receive a modified version of the Gallardo’s 5.2 V10 in 2009. Suddenly the R8 had become very serious, packing 525PS and being offered in both a coupe and a Spyder convertible model. This wonderful European-delivered and just two owner V10 example was fitted from new with the very rare 6-speed manual gearbox, a €20,000 option when first supplied. In addition a number of other options are fitted (a full specification is available upon request).
Beautifully finished in pearl-effect Sapang Blue, this stunning supercar is offered with full maintenance history in additional to a recent service. The R8 has been professionally upgraded from 525hp to 650hp through the fitting of a Capristo Sports Exhaust System and remap, in addition to a race specification air induction kit. Additionally the R8 is fitted with an uprated carbon package to the engine compartment. This R8 is still presented with its first paint, is undamaged and accident-free. All in all a fabulous example of a rare and soon to be very collectible modern supercar.
1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Cabriolet Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ91ZES151457
Estimate: €30,000 - €35,000
Porsche developed a reputation early on for their surprising performance from their small displacement rear-engine sports and racing cars. These ‘giant killers’ could outperform cars with much higher horsepower figures by making light cars with incredible handling. This combination gave Porsches their truly unique driving characteristics and dedicated following of Porsche enthusiasts. Starting in 1963 with the original 911, Porsche has produced a line of six-cylinder rear-engine sportscars that could compete with much more powerful cars thanks to their low weight and superior handling. The 911 quickly became an icon of performance and handling and offered a driving experience unlike anything else. The 911 has continuously evolved into a more sophisticated, powerful, and capable driving machine, as well as a reliable and usable car. Introduced in 1984, The Carrera 3.2 was the last iteration of the classic 911 before the large changes for the 964. The Carrera 3.2 is fitted with a rear-mounted, air-cooled SOHC 3.2 liter flat six. This engine, equipped with Bosch LE-Jetronic fuel injection, could produce 217bhp at 5,900 rpm. Maximum torque was 195 foot-pounds at 4,800 rpm, which was delivered through the Getrag G50 five-speed manual transaxle and hydraulic clutch, much welcomed introductions for the 1987 production year. The Carrera 3.2 also featured an improved interior over its predecessor, the 911 SC, with liberal use of leather and comfort features like power seats, power wing mirrors, and air conditioning. True to Porsche’s reputation, the Carrera 3.2 offered the unique experience of driving pleasure and performance without sacrificing comfort and usability. Because of their robust construction and strong owners groups, these 1980s 911s are great cars to be enjoyed and driven. A wonderfully presented wide body version of the highly desirable Carrera 3.2 Cabriolet in the excellent colour scheme of black with tan interior.
1963 Triumph TR4 Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €18,000 - €21,000
The Triumph TR4 was introduced in 1961 to follow its very successful predecessors, the TR2 and TR3. Code named ‘Zest’ during development the body was given a more modern and updated appearance by Michelotti but its drivetrain and chassis remained the same using the well proven 4 cylinder pushrod unit, however its capacity was increased from 1991cc to 2138cc. Handling was improved by a three inch wider track and steering was also updated to the more modern and precise rack and pinion system. Internally the car gained wind up windows and the new angular rear end allowed for a boot with a very reasonable luggage capacity for a sports car. Another innovation was the option of an alloy hard top with a removable roof panel that was five years ahead of Porsche’s famous 911 Targa. 40,235 cars were built between 1961 and 1965 and over the years this car has become one of Triumph’s most popular sports cars. This bright and beautiful example was brought in from the dry state of California and treated to numerous mechanical upgrades. For example the engine was uprated with a fast-road camshaft, and with the various other improvements we have a quick and easy to handle sports car. Finished in Signal Red and with alloy Mini-lite wheels on each corner, this is a well-prepared classic car with a huge amount of capability.
2004 Porsche GT3 996 RS Registration Number: N/A
Chassis Number: WPO ZZZ 99Z45691782
Estimate: €170,000 - €200,000
An even more extreme version of the 911 GT3, the GT3 RS was first introduced in 2003 in an effort to homologate the GT3 RSR for racing. This offered Porsche the perfect opportunity to provide its customers with a track-ready 911 that could be road-registered and driven on the street, to and from the racetrack, if the owner so desired. Horsepower remained the same as the GT3, and the GT3 RS’s bump-up in performance was due to a handful of other alterations. Wider tires were fitted with a revised suspension for track use, and a large rear spoiler was fitted to help increase downforce. Weight was shed through reduction of interior sound deadening, air conditioning, rear seats, and a Perspex rear window instead of glass. These changes meant that the GT3 RS tipped the scales at just 1,360 kilograms, 50 kilograms lighter than the standard GT3. With a 0–60 mph time of 4.2 seconds leading to a top speed of 190 mph, the GT3 RS certainly was no slouch. All examples were fitted with a full roll cage and finished in white with either red or light blue trim, in a nod to the 2.7 RS of 1973.
This beautiful one owner example only has only driven 7,850km from new. Originally purchased from Porsche in 2004, it was exported to Switzerland in 2008. This is the club sport version and is in pristine condition letting viewers and prospective buyers enjoy the car for what it would have been in its hey-day.
1975 BMW 3.0 S Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 3023075
Estimate: €18,000 - €20,000
The BMW 3.0 model is part of the BMW ‘New Six’ range of cars, a series of sporting luxury sedans, and part of BMW’s efforts to re-establish itself in this market after production of the BMW 503 ended in 1963. The BMW ‘3.0’ was released in 1971 as a dual carburettor version, big bore 3.0S version, and also as a longer wheel-base model, the 3.0L. The BMW 3.0 series production run ended in 1977. This highly original example has come from a private collection in Sweden. Finished in red metallic with a beige interior it is described to be in good condition throughout. A desirable sunroof model this delightful 3.0 S would be at home in a city as it would be driving on twisty mountain roads.
1990 Range-Rover Classic - Rare Two Door Version Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €25,000 - €29,000
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 highly original and exceptionally well preserved Range Rover is fitted with the later and more reliable 3.9 litre motor, fed through Lucas electronic fuel injection and the classic ZF4 automatic gearbox. Range-Rovers are extremely capable modern classics which can be enjoyed in all weathers, and this later 2-door model is ready for many more years of service and weekend fun.
1975 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow I Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: SRH21011
Estimate €14,000 – €16,000
The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was a luxury saloon car built from 1965 until 1980 and was the first Rolls-Royce to be constructed using a monocoque chassis and, to date, has the largest production volume of any Rolls-Royce. The original Shadow was 3½” narrower and shorter than the Silver Cloud which it replaced, but managed to offer increased passenger and luggage space thanks to more efficient packaging made possible by its construction. Aside from a more modern appearance and construction, the Silver Shadow introduced many new features such as disc brakes instead of drum brakes and independent rear suspension rather than the ageing live axle design of previous cars. The pre-1970 Shadow 1 featured a 172 bhp 6.2 Litre V8 coupled to the same 4-speed automatic gearbox as the Silver Cloud sourced from General Motors. The car’s most innovative feature was a high-pressure hydraulic system licensed from Citroen, with dual-circuit braking and hydraulic self-levelling suspension. At first, both the front and rear of the car were controlled by the levelling system; the front levelling was deleted in 1969 as it had been determined that the rear levelling did almost all the work. Rolls-Royce achieved a high degree of ride quality with this arrangement.
This wonderful example has recently had a complete gearbox overhaul, along with engine checks and cosmetic work where needed. Now running beautifully, the car has recently been registered in Germany and the vendor is looking to sell due to lack of time to enjoy the vehicle.
1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 9300700149
Estimate: €90,000 - €110,000
Porsche began experimenting with turbocharging technology on their race cars during the late 1960s, and in 1972 began development on a turbocharged version of the 911. Porsche originally needed to produce the car in order to comply with homologation regulations and had intended on marketing it as a street legal race vehicle like the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS. The FIA’s Appendix “J” rules that brought about the 911 Turbo Carrera RSR 2.1 in 1974 changed in 1975 and 1976. The FIA announced that cars for Group 4 and Group 5 had to be production cars and be available for sale to individual purchasers through manufacturer dealer networks. For the 1976 season, new FIA regulations required manufacturers to produce 400 cars within a twenty-four month period to gain approval for Group 4. Group 5 would require the car to be derived from a homologated model in Group 3 or 4. Porsche’s Group 4 entry was the 934, homologated on 6 December 1975. For Group 5, Porsche would create one of the most successful racing cars of all time, the 935. The 911 Turbo was put into production in 1975. While the original purpose of the 911 Turbo was to gain homologation for the 1976 racing season, it quickly became popular among car enthusiasts. Four-hundred cars were produced by the end of 1975. Since Porsche wanted to be racing for the 1976 season, they gained FIA homologation for the Porsche Turbo for Group 4 in Nr. 645 on 6 Dec 1975 and the 1,000th 911 Turbo was completed on 5 May 1976.
This superb 930 Turbo was delivered new in Germany to the CEO of Volvo in the stunning colour combination of silver-green diamond with green leather interior. In 2017 the current vendor undertook a comprehensive restoration from the bodyshell up according to factory specifications using only OEM parts (all invoices in file). Since its restoration the car has not been in use and been carefully stored. Supplied with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, all paperwork, invoices, appraisals, and full photographic record of the work carried out, this is certainly one of the finest examples we have ever seen.
1924 LaFayette Model 134 Coupe Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 2978
Estimate: €60,000 - €80,000
Founded during 1919 and based in Mars Hill, Indiana, the LaFayette Motors Company boasted the technical expertise of none other than D’Orsay McCall White. An expat Glaswegian, McCall White served as chief engineer to the Daimler Motor Car Company, D. Napier & Son (where he designed a Land Speed Record car) and Crossley Motors before emigrating to the USA. Personally responsible for devising Cadillac’s first V8 engine, the Type 51, he later became the company’s vice president and was one of three people entrusted with developing the V12 Liberty aircraft engine during World War One. Drawing upon his aeronautical experience, 5.7 litre V8 engine that McCall White created for the LaFayette Model 134 featured a hollow case crankshaft weighing just 30.5lbs, air-pressurised fuel delivery system, internally driven accessories using Morse type chains, twin crankshaft-driven back-to-back water pumps, manifolding routed through the cylinder block and a dual exhaust system to the rear of the car which resulted in low back pressure. Fed by a multi-jet carburettor, the sophisticated power-plant developed 100bhp at 2,750rpm and was allied to three-speed manual transmission. Based around a substantial ladder frame chassis equipped with all-round semi-elliptic leaf-sprung suspension, worm and sector steering, fully floating back axle and rear wheel brakes. The Model 134 also incorporated thermostatically controlled radiator shutters. Relocating to Milwaukee, Wisconsin when Charles Nash of Nash Motors acquired control in 1923, LaFayette nevertheless ceased production the following year. Available in Touring, Sedan, Coupe, Torpedo, Roadster and Limousine guises, a mere 2,267 Model 134 cars were produced. Competition amid luxury car makers during the 1920’s was particularly
fierce. For all its engineering excellence LaFayette struggled to poach customers from established giants such as Cadillac and Packard especially as the Model 134 was more expensive than the former’s offerings and on a par price wise with the latter’s; the Four-Door Coupe model costing a princely $4,300 in 1924. The survival rate for LaFayette Model 134 cars has been estimated at just one percent. Finished in Dark Green over Black with Red pinstriping and Grey cloth upholstery, this particular Milwaukee-built example – chassis 2978 – wears Four-Door Coupe coachwork by the Seaman Body Corporation (number 31178). One of a pair of Model 134 cars supplied new to North Georgian steam locomotive manufacturer James Bulan Glover (the other being a Torpedo), it remained in his family until 2001. Dry stored in a basement for the previous seventy years, the LaFayette was complete but in need of a full restoration. Displayed ‘as found’ at the Nash Car Club of America’s 2002 Grand Nashional meeting, it caused an understandable stir. The vendor estimates that acquiring and refurbishing the Model 134 has cost some $200,000. Rewired, repainted, re-trimmed and treated to a thorough mechanical overhaul, the work took NCCA member Ben Bliss over three years to complete. Undeniably handsome, the Four-Door Coupe body sports a distinctive, prism-like windscreen, LaFayette calormeter, integral luggage trunk, LaFayette Motors Corporation Milwaukee hubcaps and twin rear-mounted spare wheels. To the interior, the well-stocked dashboard is complimented by a wooden steering wheel, wooden window frames, nickel-silver door furniture and blinds to the rear windows. Sparingly used since its completion save for a few rally outings, chassis 2978 is quite possibly the finest Model 134 in existence. Offered for sale with French Certificat d’Immatriculation (Carte Grise), UK V5C Registration Document, FIVA Identity Card, bill of sale from Mr Glover’s son (a distant relative of Teddy Roosevelt) and a huge history file. This is a rare opportunity to own an even rarer car in a truly breath-taking condition.
1962 Jaguar E Type ‘Flat Floor’ Roadster Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 876469
Estimate: €130,000 - €150,000
Introduced in 3.8-litre form in 1961, the E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. The newcomer’s design owed much to that of the racing D-Type: a monocoque tub forming the main structure, while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-litre, triplecarburettor ‘S’ unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. An optimistic 265bhp was claimed, but whatever the installed horsepower, the E-Type’s performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 500lb (227kg) less than the XK150 and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. Taller drivers though, could find the interior somewhat lacking in space, a criticism addressed by the introduction of foot wells (and other, more minor, modifications) early in 1962. But of all the versions of Jaguar’s long-lived and much-loved sports car, it is the very early ‘flat floor’ 3.8-litre cars built prior to February 1962 which, for many enthusiasts, remain the most desirable.
On offer here today is one of those rare ‘flat floor’ roadsters that have become the pinnacle of E Type collectors around the world. Purchased by the vendors father in the 1980’s this car was the subject of an older restoration in the early 1990’s and has been seldom driven since. Due to the value of this wonderful example, the owner decided to undertake a full engine rebuild earlier this year purely as a precautionary measure. At this time he also had the brakes and other items renewed with the total bill amounting to approximately £20,000. This delightful E Type represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire the rarest of the E Type legacy and a car that will always be the most coveted by any true Jaguar enthusiast.
1958 Austin-Healey Sprite Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €15,000 - €20,000
Intended to make sports car motoring more affordable, the Donald Healey-designed Sprite entered production at MG’s Abingdon factory in March 1958. The new car was officially introduced a few months later in Monte Carlo, just prior to the Monte Carlo Rally, underlining this brand new car’s sporting intentions. Its unitary construction body shell featured a distinctive, rearward-hinging, combined bonnet and wings, which was topped by two ‘frog eye’ headlamps, thus ensuring instant recognition and the now familiar nickname. Powered initially by the Austin A35’s 948cc A-Series engine, the Sprite used independent front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering, ensuring great roadholding. Equipped with twin SU carburetors, the engine produced 43bhp, which was good enough for a top speed of around 86mph. Despite a Spartan equipment level – even the front bumper was listed as an extra! – the ‘Frog Eye’ sold well, which perhaps was unsurprising as there was nothing competing with it either on price or performance. This delightful matching numbers Frogeye was originally delivered to Belgium, in 1958, and as such is one of the first delivered. The Sprite has been the recipient of a body-off restoration and still presents very well, complete with the correct soft-top, tonneau and side-screens. This cherry red “pocket rocket” drives very well with a sweet sounding and enthusiastic engine. We are sure this little Sprite will be a fun summer companion for a very sensible outlay.
1967 Fiat 124 Spider - one private owner from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 124AS004697
Estimate: €24,000 - €29,000
The Fiat 124 Sport Spider is a monocoque, front-engine, rear drive 2+2 convertible sports car manufactured by Fiat Automobiles for model years 1966-1980. Designed and manufactured by Italian carrozzeria Pininfarina, the 124 Spider debuted at the November 1966 Turin Auto Show. The 124 Spider was sold in Europe and the U.S. from its introduction until the 1975 model year when it was modified to comply with new U.S. regulations and no European version was produced. Sales in Europe resumed when Pininfarina took over production in 1983 under the name Pininfarina Europa Spider. The body of the car was designed and marketed by Pininfarina with styling by Tom Tjaarda. In 1972, a sports version of the spider debuted. This was required for a type-approval of its rally version, which earned some remarkable success. The fourcylinder engine used in the spider and coupé is a double overhead cam, aluminum crossflow head version of the sedan’s pushrod unit. It started in 1966 with a capacity of 1438 cc progressively increasing to 1608 cc in 1970 and finally 1,995 cc in 1979. This charming very early 124 Spider rolled off the production line in May 1967, destined for its first and only private Dutch owner from new. Over the years the Fiat has covered under 60,000 kilometers, and still retains many original features such as the interior trim and convertible roof. Finished in Grigio with a Vino Rosso interior, the Fiat has benefitted from the paint being refinished, in addition to other refurbishment works. If you are seeking a beautiful Fiat 124 Spider Series 1 then look no further.
1973 MGB GT Coupe Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: â‚Ź14,000 - â‚Ź17,000
The MGB was first introduced in May 1962 as a direct replacement for the MGA. Performance was brisk with power supplied by a 1,798cc four cylinder iron block engine set within a monocoque lightweight body shell with crumple zones incorporated. October 1965 saw the introduction of the GT and was based on the already popular roadster. Designed by Pininfarina, the new GT sported a hatchback giving useful access to the rear luggage space and a rear bench seat that enabled the car to be called a 2+2. Although acceleration was slightly slower than the roadster, top speed was better by 5mph due to the increased aerodynamic efficiency. This charming example was acquired as a rust-free car from California by a passionate Belgian classic car enthusiast who then undertook a programme of restoration works with no expense spared. The engine and gearbox were rebuilt, and the bodywork refinished from a bare shell to a high standard. We understand the MG drives extremely well with no faults observed. A well sorted example of a perennially popular fuss-free classic car.
1921 Willys Overland Model 91 Tourer Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: â‚Ź18,000 - â‚Ź22,000
In 1908, John Willys bought the Overland Automotive Division of Standard Wheel Company and in 1912 renamed it Willys-Overland Motor Company. From 1912 to 1918, Willys was the second largest producer of automobiles in the United States after Ford Motor Company. John Willys acquired the Electric Auto-Lite Company in 1914 and in 1917 formed the Willys Corporation to act as his holding company. In 1916, they acquired the Russell Motor Car Company of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, by 1917 New Process Gear, and in 1919 acquired the Duesenberg Motors Company plant in Elizabeth, New Jersey. This charming 1921 Model 91 four-door Tourer has enjoyed a comprehensive restoration by the current vendor. The vendor has gone to great lengths to maintain the original look and feel of the car, restoring the Willys without using any reproduction parts. This is a delightful vintage tourer and a real treat to both own and drive.
1973 Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: *17093
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
‘Most important was the double overhead cam engine. Like Rolls-Royce, no horsepower figure was quoted, but surely it was at least 320. More important was its massive amount of torque. Taken together with the turbine-like characteristics of the V12 engine, it mattered little which gear one was in or at what speed.’ Stanley Nowak on the 356GT4 2+2, ‘Ferrari on the Road’. Introduced towards the end of 1972, the 365GT4 2+2 was the biggest and best equipped four-seater Ferrari so far. Flagship of the Maranello range, it reaffirmed Ferrari’s determination to compete with the world’s finest luxury saloons. Based on the preceding 365GT 2+2, albeit lower, longer and wider, the newcomer was fitted with a four-cam version of the 4.4-litre V12 engine while retaining its predecessor’s mechanical underpinnings. A total of only 524 had been completed by the time production ceased in 1976.
This Italian delivered example has until recently spent all of its life in Italy, covering just over 90,000 kilometres. Originally specified in Blue Chiaro with a black leather interior, the 365 has has been refinished in Rossa Corsa in the past. With a major service in 2018 including carburettor adjustment, this super cool 70s GT car is ready for crosscontinental touring once more.
1968 Shelby GT-350 Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €75,000 – €100,000
The Shelby Mustang line had been created by Cobra builder and 1959 Le Mans winner Carroll Shelby in 1965 to give Ford a rival to the GM Corvette and provide the already hugely successful Mustang with a stronger performance image. Ford involvement in the Shelby programme increased in 1968, as the lease on Shelby’s Venice facility expired and the production was transferred to the A.O. Smith Company in Ionia, Michigan. The ’68 Shelby Mustangs were broadly similar to the 1967 models, with a redesigned front end and new tail lights. Shelby Automotive – and offshoot of Shelby American – contracted Smith to make and install special Shelby items. A new glass fibre bonnet top with twin wide air scoops across the front and louvers at the back was fitted along with a larger grille, again of glass fibre. The 1968 Shelby GT-350 was powered by Ford’s new 250-bhp 302 cu in (5-litre) V8 with hydraulic valve lifters and high-volume intake manifold with a 600-cfm Holley four-barrel carburettor and ‘Cobra-powered by Ford’ aluminium valve covers and ‘Cobra’ aluminium air cleaner.
File Images The car offered here is fitted with the optional â€˜Select-o-Maticâ€™ automatic transmission and was subject to a three year restoration by the previous owner, who acquired the car around 2001. Purchased by the current owner over 12 years ago, this car has former part of a Private Swiss collection and has been subject to a regular programme of maintenance and use.
2005 Porsche Carrera GT Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WPOCAA29875L001361
Estimate: €700,000 - €800,000
The Carrera GT proved to enthusiasts in the early 21st century that Porsche had not lost its way and was still very much capable of producing a world-class winning hypercar. Utilizing the very best technologies available to develop the chassis and drivetrain, the Carrera GT stood up against the likes of the Ferrari Enzo and the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. Unlike Ferrari and Mercedes-Benz, Porsche chose to fit the CGT with a six-speed manual transaxle mated to a unique multi-plate carbon ceramic clutch, making it a true driver’s car. As close as one can get to a race car for the road, the Carrera GT offers motorsport-inspired thrills for those brave enough to slide behind the wheel. Truly a thrill to drive in every aspect, this is a car best enjoyed on the open road and will certainly reward drivers talented enough to command and control the stunning performance that it provides. The story of Porsche’s Carrera GT starts five years before the first production model left Porsche’s facilities in Leipzig, Germany. Porsche sought to develop a new Le Mans prototype to replace the venerable GT1, which was powered by a 5.5 litre V10 engine. However, a change in FIA rules quickly shelved their racing plans while the model was in development, but Porsche remained undeterred and continued forward with plans to make the platform suitable for road use. To attract attention to their stand at the Paris Motor Show in 2000, Porsche displayed a road going concept of the car alongside their other production models. Combined with the amount of attention that the concept received, along with additional revenue from the Cayenne, Porsche decided to go ahead and produce the car. The Carrera GT was first offered for sale in 2004, alongside the Ferrari Enzo, Ford GT, and Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, and it more than held its own in what proved to be an incredible year for supercars. The materials that went into the construction of the Carrera GT were simply that of an engineer’s dream. By utilising a carbon fibre monocoque and sub frame, as well as carbon ceramic brakes, Porsche’s engineers pushed the envelope of what was mechanically possible in order to offer a car that was as light as it was strong. Porsche also designed a three-disc carbon fibre racing clutch for the car, which measured 7.5 inches in diameter and was about a third of the size of a normal clutch. Similar attention to detail was applied to nearly every facet of the car. The ultra-lightweight forged magnesium wheels had center-locking bolts that were colour-coded for each side of the car, ensuring that wrong bolts were never put on the incorrect side of the car.
At the heart of the Carrera GT lies a monstrous 5.7 litre V10 engine, the first V10 produced for use in a Porsche. Performance was incredible, with 605 horsepower and 435 foot-pounds of torque. The Carrera GT could rocket from 0–60 mph in 3.6 seconds, towards a top speed of 205 mph. The Carrera GT truly showed its racing roots when one, piloted by Walter Rohrl, lapped the July 2004 Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:28, a record for a Porsche, which was not broken until the release of the 911 GT2 RS in 2010. Slip into the Carrera GT’s carbon fibre bucket seats and it is clear that Porsche’s engineers did not limit the car’s track-focused nature to just the exterior and mechanical components. Every surface within reach is either leather, aluminium, or carbon fibre, and nothing in the car, minus the requisite stereo with CD player and air conditioning, distracts the driver from the task at hand. Everything else in the cockpit is typically Porsche, from the instrument layout with the tachometer in the centre, to the left-hand placement of the ignition. Porsche topped the gearstick, which was mated to a six-speed manual transmission, with a knob made of walnut, tying an organic link from past models into their technological tour de force, thereby showing that their most powerful creation to date indeed had a soul. By the time production ceased, 1,270 examples had been built. This very rare and sought after Carrera GT was first delivered new to Germany, later finding its way to Italy before entering the UK in more recent times. As is essential the CGT has been maintained to a high standard, with a total of 5 stamps recorded, including the important 10 year service and clutch replacement at a cost of c. £16,000. Finished in Basalt Black with matching black leather interior, this CGT is in absolutely beautiful condition throughout, and is fitted with the full carbon pack (including steering wheel ) and luggage set. All in all a truly exceptional example of one of greatest supercars of all time. 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.
1990 Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 “Cosworth” Fitted with rare manual gearbox Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WDB2010351F621358
Estimate: €18,000 - €21,000
Three cars, only slightly cosmetically altered, had set three world records in August at the Nardo testing facility in Italy, recording a combined average speed of 154.06 mph over the 50,000km endurance test, and establishing twelve international endurance records. This was later updated to the 190E 2.5 16v in 1988. Apart from the performance increase over the standard 190E, there were other notable changes. The body-kit reduced the drag coefficient to 0.32, one of the lowest CD values on a four-door saloon at the time, whilst also reducing lift at speed. The steering ratio was quicker and the steering wheel smaller than that on other 190s, whilst the fuel tank was enlarged from 55 to 70 litres. The Getrag 5-speed manual gearbox was unique to the 16-valve and featured a ‘racing’ gear pattern with a ‘dog-leg’ first gear. The steering ratio is quicker and the steering wheel smaller than that on other 190s, whilst the fuel tank is enlarged from 55 to 70 litres. But most important is the engine. It offers double-row timing chains to fix the easily snapping single chains on early 2.3 engines, and an increased peak output by 17 bhp (13 kW) with a slight increase in torque. The car delivers up to 204 hp (152 kW; 207 PS) Mercedes were not keen to publicise the fact that their most capable saloon had an engine developed by a British company. However some cylinder heads from 2.5 L cars were found to be stamped with the Coscast logo indicating they were cast at Cosworth’s foundry just like the 2.3 L cars. Cosworth also list the project code ‘WAB’ for the development of the 2.5-16-valve head just as they do for the 2.3-16-valve head. This clean example has been nicely kept over the years, and is well presented in Pearl Black with a matching black leather interior. Notably our Cosworth is fitted with the much sportier and more desirable 5-speed ZF manual gearbox, which when combined with the high revving multi-valve four cylinder motor provides an exhilarating driving experience. A great driving car and one of our favourites of this era.
1926 Essex Super Six “Special” Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €30,000 - €35,000
The Essex was a brand of automobile produced by the Essex Motor Company between 1918 and 1922 and by Hudson Motor Company of Detroit, Michigan between 1922 and 1933. Essex cars were designed to be moderately priced cars which would be affordable to the average family. Proving durable, their capabilities were checked upon and confirmed by AAA and the United States Postal Service. In 1919 an Essex completed a 50-hour, 3,037.4 miles (4,888.2 km) endurance test in Cincinnati, Ohio, at an average speed of 60.75 miles per hour. The early Essex cars also captured many hill climb records. In a special Essex race car, Glen Shultz won the 1923 Pikes Peak Hill Climb. By 1929, the Essex was third in U.S. sales, behind Ford and Chevrolet. Essex sales remained strong into 1931 before sales began to trend downward. For 1932 a redesigned Essex debuted and was named the EssexTerraplane, a play on the word aeroplane. For 1934 the Essex name was no more and the car carried on as the Terraplane This fantastically restored Super Six “Special” has been built with an fabulous eye for detail. Fitted with its original and torquey 6-cylinder engine, the car drives well with its three speeds, easy steering and effective braking. Supplied with much documentation, this eye catching special will we are sure be hugely enjoyable to own and drive for the next custodian.
1950 Simca 8 Sports Cabriolet Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 868108
Estimate: €50,000 - €60,000
The Sport version of the Simca 8 was first introduced in 1949. Clothed in beautiful coupé or cabriolet coachwork designed by Pinin Farina and crafted in aluminium by Facel Metallon, the 8 Sport boasted an engine tuned initially for 50bhp, gaining an extra 2bhp when its capacity was increased from 1,100cc to 1,200cc for 1950. Not surprisingly, with such favourable credentials the Simca 8 Sport proved outstandingly successful in competition; Amédée Gordini’s team in particular dominated the 1,100cc class in classic long-distance events of the day, making a lasting impression on the young Jean-Pierre Beltoise, for whom the 8 Sport became one of his three ‘dream cars’, the others being the MG TF and Triumph TR2. The wonderful matching numbers Simca 8 offered here has spent its whole life in Sweden with only two registered owners from new. Described to be in a wonderfully original condition and presented in a very elegant colour scheme, this Facel-designed convertible is the epitome of chic open top driving. A wonderful investment for the enthusiast or collector alike.
2002 Mercedes G500 Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WDB4638481X134071
Estimate: €30,000 - €35,000
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagon, short for Geländewagen (cross-country vehicle), is characterised by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. The G-Class is still in production and is one of the longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler’s history. It was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran and offered as a civilian version in 1979. A new version was expected for 2007, but ultimately whilst the new GL-Class is a fine performing product in the Mercedes tradition, it was not sufficient to steal the affection for the classic Geländewagen. And so the G-Wagon is still in production and selling well to the current day. This later very well specified G500 model is presented well with nice paintwork and very clean original black leather interior. With just 88,000 kilometers recorded, and a fresh service with mass airflow sensor, this is a highly capable classic which can be used and enjoyed in all weather conditions.
1970 Datsun 2000 SRL300 “Fairlady” - one of only 92 produced Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: SRL31114230
Estimate: €24,000 - €28,000
Datsun’s first serious attempt at building a sports car was badged the Fairlady, featuring attractive Italianate styling combined with some distinctly Japanese touches. Introduced in 1963, the Fairlady was a roadster very much in the British sports car tradtition and well equipped by the standards of the day, with a clock, radio and tonneau all standard. The earliest models came with an unusual side-facing rear seat for a third passenger and were powered a single-carburettor version of the G15 1500cc engine lifted from the Cedric sedan, while the remaining mechanical components were shared with the 310 series Bluebird. The power output of 77 horsepower was boosted to 85 on twin carburettor models built from 1963 until 1965, using side-draught 38 HJB Hitachis. A facelifted model was announced in 1965, with the original SP310 joined by 1600 (SP311) and Silvia Coupe derivatives, while the ultimate 2000 model of March 1967 saw the Fairlady through to the end of production in 1970. By the late 1960s the rest of the world had begun to take recognise the virtues of Datsun’s delightful little sports car and it enjoyed a successful career in Sports Car Club of America events, winning the C and D Production classes thanks to John Morton, Bob Sharp and others. The Fairlady proved a commercial success as well, with over 50,000 sold and inspired future generations of Datsun sports cars, including the legendary 240Z. Today the Fairlady enjoys a strong following both in Japan and abroad. This rare Datsun 2000 Fairlady is one of a mere 92 produced, fitted with the powerful 135 hp “U20” 2-litre engine and 5 speed gearbox. The Fairlady has enjoyed much maintenance over the years, as such it is offered with an extensive file of works completed. The interior has benefited from a retrim, as has the convertible roof. For those seeking a rare, fast alternative to the traditional 1960s sports-car, this Fairlady merits closer inspection.
1992 Porsche 964 RS Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ96ZNS490104
Estimate: €135,000 - €145,000
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 four-wheel 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 1970s, 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 to Spain before being exported to The Netherlands, France and the UK, the car was repatriated to The Netherlands in 2017. This car benefitted from an engine rebuild and has only covered 7,000km since. Presented in excellent overall condition it is a wonderful example of this highly sought-after model.
1967 BMW 2000 Ti Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 1455742
Estimate: €25,000 - €30,000
The post-World War II crisis in Europe was not a great period for BMW. The brand offered either large, expensive luxury barges – which weren’t as profitable as expected – or microcars powered by motorbike engines, which were already dated at the time and were slowly becoming a thing of the past. In order to prevent financial trouble of the company (even Daimler Benz pondered its takeover), the Germans set to work on a new middle-class model, which would still be comfortable and elegant, but also affordable at the same time. The result was the “Neue Klasse” – “New Class” series, thanks to which BMW recovered financially and established its market position and image. The BMW 2000 was an enhanced and more powerful version. It was distinguished by a better equipped interior, new front (with rectangular headlamps in Europe and round ones in the USA) and restyled taillights. Initially the only available engine was a 100 BHP two-litre, but in 1966 the engine line-up was joined by 120 BHP a 2000 TI version. The BMW Neue Klasse was universally praised by its style, performance, efficiency, comfort and handling. It was a much anticipated sales success and helped BMW recover financially. It was also successful in motorsport (having won the 24-hour endurance race at Spa several times). Numerous features were introduced in this car for the first time and were also used in many other BMW vehicles that came along subsequently. It is often said that the Neue Klasse defined brand’s character and set path for its development, whereas its heritage is still present in today’s products of the Bavarian giant. Showing just 87,000 kilometers recorded, this beautiful French delivered example benefits from much restoration work to present the stunning BMW you see here. The 2000 Ti is offered with its original bill of sale and maintenance bills, and is very stylishly presented in Chamonix White with a navy velour interior. If you are looking for a rare and stylish classic with good performance and much usability, this is the car for you.
1985 BMW 635CSi Coupe Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WBAEC8407F0610201
Estimate: €20,000 - €24,000
The E24 6 series was produced from 1976-1989 and was the replacement for the CS and CSL E9 coupes. Like the E9 coupes, the early bodies of the 6 were manufactured by Karmann until production was moved in-house by BMW. It was the proven E12 5 series that provided the chassis and much of the mechanicals for the E24. Dubbed the ‘Bavarian Ferrari’ the 6 series was a high end two door luxury sports coupe. The 628 model was produced until 1987 and was a budget model for the European market. The 633 Csi featured the first generation of DME and ABS brakes were available as an option. The following year, the 635 CSi received the same DME as the 633 Csi. The main update in 1982 was the entire reworking of the body which included a new front and rear end, which achieved a lighter and stronger vehicle. ABS brakes were now standard in all E24 models. A new 3430 cc engine was placed in the 635 CSi along with new engine management, DME II. This super stylish BMW was first registered in the summer of 1985, finished in Polar White with Pearl Beige leather sports seats and many other options as you would expect in a car of this calibre and era, such as air conditioning, on board computer, cruise control and ABS braking. In more recent years the BMW has benefited from much attention, with investment to the mechanics, new tyres, an overhaul to the air conditioning and a cosmetic refresh. Showing a very sensible 127,000 kilometres recorded, this is a well sorted example of one of BMW’s best modern GT cars.
1999 Mercedes SL320 34,000 kilometres from new Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WDB1290641F175955
Estimate: €22,000 - €27,000
The Mercedes-Benz R129 SL roadsters were produced from 1989 through 2002. The R129 replaced the R107 in 1989 and was in its turn replaced by the R230 SL-Class in 2002 for the 2003 model year. The R129 was produced as a two-door, two-seat roadster with an automated (electrohydraulic), collapsible textile roof, with a shell-like, color-matched, tonneau cover. All R129s came standard with an aluminum detachable hardtop that was fitted by folding the canvas roof down and manually attaching the hardtop. Designed in 1984, the R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 and featured many innovative details for the time, for instance electronically controlled damping (Adaptive Damping System ADS, optional) and a hidden, automatically extending roll-over bar. The R107’s rather dated rear diagonal swing axle gave way to a modern multi-link axle. The number of standard features was high, with electric action for the windows, mirrors, seats and hydraulic convertible top. This well specified SL320 model has covered a mere 34,000 kilometres from new, with recent servicing having been carried out at a cost of over €2000. Finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic with a Nappa / Anthracite leather interior, this is a super stylish modern classic that can be driven every day of the year.
1967 Daimler-Benz 230S Limousine Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 11101012099730
Estimate: €18,000 - €22,000
The W110 was Mercedes-Benz’s entry level line of midsize automobiles in the mid1960s. One of Mercedes’ “Fintail” series, the W110 initially was available with either a 1.9 L M121 petrol or diesel inline-four. The W110 line was refreshed in July, 1965 to become the 200 and Diesel 200D (model year 1966 for North America); at the same time, a six-cylinder 230 (successor to the Mercedes 220) became part of the W110 line. Production lasted just three more years, with the W115 220 and 220D introduced in 1968. The W110 and the 6-cylinder W111 were the first series of Mercedes cars to be extensively crash tested for occupant safety. At the rear, the tail lights were enlarged and squared off and the chrome trim was revised (including the removal of the chrome trim from the trailing edge of the tailfins). All models now featured air outlets with chrome trim on the C-pillars (identical to the W111 models). Inside, there were very few changes except all models now featured reclining front seats (excluding the bench seats) this had been previously an option on the 190c and 190Dc, and the 230 had a central armrest in the back seat as standard. Owned by the previous vendor for 16 years, the car is showing just 62,000 miles. The vehicle has enjoyed some engine work, overhauled brakes as well as cosmetic and necessary rubbers etc. Additional work can be viewed in the history file.
1985 Porsche 930 Turbo ‘Flatnose’ Matching Numbers Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ93ZFS000155
Estimate: €105,000 - €115,000
What set the 911 Turbo apart from its peers was the relaxed way this stupefying performance was delivered. Comparing the Turbo to similarly quick ‘he-man’ cars, such as the Holman & Moody-tuned Cobra 427 and the Ford GT40, Motor’s Roger Bell reckoned what made the Porsche so different was that it “hurls you forward with similar velocity but in an uncannily quiet and effortless way. To be shoved so hard in the back that you need high-back seats to keep you’re head on, yet neither to feel nor hear anything more than a muffled hum, is a very odd sensation indeed in a car.” The Turbo’s characteristic flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler had already been seen on the Carrera model, while the interior was the most luxurious yet in a 911, featuring leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows.
For 1978, the Turboâ€™s engine was enlarged to 3.3 litres, gaining an inter-cooler 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. This wonderful Swiss delivered 930 Turbo has been extensively restored and is presented in the desirable colour combination of black on black.
1994 BMW Alpina B12 5.0 Coupe Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WO9050108WBW63061
Estimate: €80,000 - €90,000
The 5.0-litre B12 Coupé was based upon BMW’s 850i, with characteristic Alpina improvements: new Mahle pistons, cam shafts and improved cylinder heads liberated an additional 49 bhp for a total output of 350 bhp whilst revised springs and Bilstein dampers focused the handling, with no loss of ride comfort. The package was completed aesthetically by an upgraded interior featuring Alpina accents, as well as subtle body kit and signature 20-spoke alloy wheels.
This 1994-delivered car has been part of a small collection for 15 years, during which it has been dry stored and used sparingly. Finished in one-off Morea Green with period-correct Alpina interior, the BMW is offered with older invoices for works completed, copy of older TUF and datacard. One of under 100 produced worldwide, this is a rare GT car which is hotly tipped for future investment potential.
1989 BMW M635 CSI Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WBAEE1413J2561280
Estimate: €40,000 - €50,000
The “Bayern-Express” M635 CSI debuted 1984 and is based on the E24 which came on the market in 1976. The M635 CSI being the “sporty” high-end version of the BMW 6 Series. This elegant coupe designed by chief designer Paul Bracq is a milestone in the history of the automobile. The four-valve M88 engine built in the M635 originally came from the M1 and was equipped with two overhead camshafts and six single-butterfly valves. ABS belonged to the standard equipment, otherwise the M635 CSI was lowered and equipped with a sports gear and differential lock to bring the high performance to the road. The coupé offered here comes from the last built series and was originally delivered to the USA. The BMW-BBS light alloy wheels, colour glass, 4 electric window lifts and cool box in the rear armrest are perhaps the perfect options for such a car. This coupled with the original BMW black-and-silver brightwork with beige leather trim, electric sunroof, electric sports seats, original BMW radio cassette without pixel errors makes this car an excellent example of the model. In 2007, this example was imported to Europe by a BMW enthusiast and has remained in his collection ever since. It is a rare opportunity to purchase a beautiful BMW M635 CSI with such an elegant colour combination. The absolute epitome of a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
1939 Cadillac Series 39-75 Imperial Sedan Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 3291984
Estimate: â‚Ź40,000 - â‚Ź50,000
Even though things were getting better in 1939, there were still only 2,069 examples of the Series 75 produced. The 1939 Cadillac 75 Models were completely restyled with; larger windows made for lighter more pleasant interior, and road behaviour was hugely improved by shortening the wheelbase. The Imperial sedan still rode on a 141 inch wheelbase, however, and was powered by a magnificent 346 cubic-inch V8 engine producing an impressive 135 horsepower, coupled with a three-speed manual transmission. This example I, a touring limousine with division is beautifully finished in Black with the front compartment luxuriously in black leather, and the rear in sumptuous beige cloth. The car clearly represents the pinnacle of bold American art deco design, including a superb dashboard which even still retains its period radio. The styling cues both of the interior and exterior are delightfully typical of luxury car design in the period and the car would take its place in any collection of significant automobiles. The condition of this splendid limousine plainly represents decades of careful use, which will be apparent both to experienced collectors and newcomers.
