H&H is acting as the agent of the Seller in offering his lot for sale by auction. We cannot and do not inspect each lot in detail to verify the Seller’s description - often we only see it shortly before the Sale. Therefore, we cannot and do not take responsibility for the condition of the lot or the accuracy of its description. This is the reason for our very specific terms as to roadworthiness (Condition 19.1) and absence of warranties (Condition 12.1), which intending purchasers should read carefully.

Commission / Telephone Bids

We will make reasonable efforts to execute commission and telephone bids when instructed provided they are received by 5pm the day before the Sale. Lot(s) will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and reserves. Where more than one commission bid is submitted at the same winning amount, the commission bid submitted to the Auctioneer first will be the winning bid. We reserve the right to request a refundable deposit of approximately 10% of the intended bid amount.

Racing Cars & Documentation

Buyers are reminded that the presence of an old HVIF (FIA papers) or other documentation does not constitute a ‘promise’ on behalf of the MSA or other issuing authority that they will be re-issued on demand. A car’s application for a Historic Technical Passport will be subject to the prevailing regulation in Appendix K and can be reviewed, much the same way Veteran Cars can be re-dated, as new information comes to light. The Issuing Authority can refuse to issue new papers. Any prospective purchaser should check the position of the Lot prior to bidding.

Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates

When mention is made of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates in this catalogue it should be borne in mind that the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain does from time to time review cars already dated and, in some instances, where fresh evidence becomes

available, alter the date. Whilst the Club makes every effort to ensure accuracy, the date shown on the Dating Plate or Dating Certificate cannot be guaranteed as correct and intending purchasers should make their own enquiries as to the date of the car.

Export Licence / Dates

Export licences may be required for any lot manufactured or produced 50 years or more prior to the date of export from the U.K. It is the responsibility of the buyer to obtain the licence and correct documentation prior to the exportation of the lot.

PLEASE NOTE: We have been advised that vehicles registered on, and imported from, the Isle of Man are not subject to Import Duty. Nor is a NOVA application required for their re-registration in the United Kingdom.

Vehicle Identity and Competition History

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. The Auctioneer has to rely on information as to the date, condition and authenticity provided by the Seller and does not provide its own description, and does not and cannot undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lot and it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that the Lot conforms to the description in the catalogue. The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN number under which a vehicle is offered, but relies on the Seller’s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing, rallying or ‘exworks’ history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis, body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times, both in a vehicle’s ‘works’ career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes ‘works’ vehicles were fitted with different registration plates, so that a vehicle could meet a particular event’s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity.

Removal of Lots

A representative of our preferred transport provider E.M. Rogers will be present at the sale to assist with any transport requirements. All lots are held at the purchaser’s risk at the fall of the hammer and must be removed not later than 1pm on the day following the sale. Please note, if lot(s) are not removed by then the standard charges as stated in our Terms and Conditions will apply.

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Introduced three years after Chevrolet’s wonderfully dramatic 1965 Mako Shark II show car, the so-called ‘C3’ Corvette borrowed heavily from its design exercise sibling’s ‘coke bottle’ silhouette. Underpinned by a perimeter frame chassis featuring all-round independent suspension, recirculating ball steering and fourwheel disc brakes, the newcomer’s beautifully moulded fibreglass skin wore slimline chrome bumpers. With even the mildest of its ‘small block’ V8 engines being rated at 300bhp and 360lbft of torque, the C3 was a predictably strong performer. Tested by Road & Track magazine against a Porsche 911, Jaguar E-type and Mercedes-Benz 280SL just such a ‘baby’ Vette acquitted itself with honours. Demolishing the opposition in a straight line, it split the Europeans on the slalom and other handling tests. A stronger seller than its soft-top sibling, some 22,129 Stingray Coupes were completed during the 1969 model year.

Fitted with four-speed manual transmission, this particular example was originally finished in Riverside Gold Metallic with Black upholstery. Imported by the vendor from California during 2011, he sold it to a friend the following year before buying it back four months later. Repainted Red but not run for a good while, the Coupe will require recommissioning prior to use. The door cards are currently detached as is part of the centre console. Riding on Boyd Coddington five-spoke alloy wheels shod with BF Goodrich tyres, this striking Stingray is thought to be only the twenty-first Coupe built during the 1969 model year. Surely worthy of a return to the road, it is offered for sale with a V5C Registration Document, copy State of California Certificate of Title, assorted US bills and two old MOTs.

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo



Introduced in October 2007, the final generation of Mitsubishi’s legendary, rally-bred EVO road rockets – the X – was no mere rehash of its forebears. Under the four-door saloon’s menacing Omer Halilhodzic-penned skin lay a brand-new, all-alloy 2.0 litre DOHC engine, the 4B11 MIVEC, which allowed service intervals to be increased from 4,500 to 10,000 miles and a thoroughly revised version of Mitsubishi’s permanent all-wheel drive system dubbed S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) that enabled torque vectoring across the rear axle. Also new was the option of a six-speed, dual clutch ‘SST’ transmission (akin to VW’s DSG or Porsche’s PDK) with steering-mounted magnesium alloy shift paddles. A far more engaging unit than the Tiptronic automatic gearbox it supplanted, SST quickly found favour with those driving at ‘maximum attack’. Unique to the UK and honed by HKS Engineering, the Evo X FQ-300 GSR SST boasted some 295PS and 300lbft of torque and was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds and 155mph. Winner of the 2008 Automotive Excellence Awards’ ‘Fun to Drive’ category and shortlisted for the ‘World Performance Car of the Year’ prize, the Evo X was also chosen by the British constabulary for use as a high-speed pursuit police car.

Finished in Lightning Blue with Black cloth upholstery, this particular example was supplied new by the Poole Car Centre Ltd of Dorset (an authorised Ralliart dealer). Serviced at 1,493, 9,594, 10,976, 11,783, 23,008, 34,061, 40,028, 43,739, 51,252, 56,784 and 61, 251 miles, the odometer currently shows some 68,600 warranted miles. Accompanying invoices record the fitment of lighter Girodisc brakes and various suspension polybushes.

Under the bonnet, ‘HF08 AFV’ appears largely standard aside from a HKS sports air filter and aftermarket ‘dump valve’. Starting readily and running evenly during our recent photography session, the Mitsubishi is still electrifyingly fast (especially cross country). Practical, affordable and fun, this Evo X is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, original book pack, MOT certificate valid until June 2023 and sundry invoices.

No: HF08 AFV MOT: June 2023 Chassis No: CZ4A0002114

This powerful hill-climb/sprint car was formerly owned & developed by a British hill-climb champion and is a class-winning car. Ex British Hill climb champion Rhys Howells competed ‘BRW 490Y’ competed with the car in the national sprint and hill-climb championships (although the car had also competed successfully prior to his purchase). Previously prepared by Simpson motorsport of Lydney, who put MOTs on the car in 2019 & 2020, it has a highly desirable & valuable J.E. Developments (John Eales) engine fitted. Stamped #4501047 (next to dip stick) it is a 4.5 litre TVR Tuscan Challenge engine producing c.350bhp. Putting the power down is a five speed Borg Warner gearbox via LSD, driving 17’’ lightweight Image wheels with brand new Nankang AR1 tyres. The height adjustable suspension uses a bespoke rear 4 link trailing arm with Panhard rod. The bonnet, boot and both front/rear bumpers are lightweight GRP. It’s evident the TR has been purpose-built and ready to go.

TT Motor Racing of Dorset have worked through the brakes, fitted new Lumenition, coil & tuned the engine. It has recently had new belts, new fluids, a new water pump and a new battery fitted. A new high pressure fuel pump and regulator have also been fitted. In addition, it is spanner checked along with wheel alignment & corner weights checked. The car weighs 1,050kg in total. A June 2021 rolling road session enabled the set-up of carburettors and revealed a strong engine producing 350bhp. A track test at Castle Combe in October 2021, showed the car to be fast and handling very well. Owing to a change of the vendor’s plans this great looking car is offered for sale. I bought this road legal car 2020 to do French hill-climbs in 2021 and then the pandemic came along and the events were cancelled. It has had a current MOT up to 18th October 2022 and much expense has been recently spent getting it to this point.

Lotus Elise 111R


Notable as the first Lotus Elise to be sold in America, the 111R was launched at the 2004 Los Angeles Auto Show and powered by a more emissions compliant Toyota 1.8 litre engine allied to six-speed manual transmission. Housed in a bespoke subframe, the incoming powerplant featured a Yamaha-designed DOHC cylinder head, variable valve timing and a carefully remapped ECU. Credited with developing 189bhp and 138lbft of torque, the 111R was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds and 150mph. Equipped with servo-assisted ABS brakes as standard, customers could pay £1,995 extra for a Touring Pack that transformed the car’s usability courtesy of better sound insulation, carpet, electric windows, uprated stereo and full leather or Alcantara upholstery.

Finished in the striking combination of Saffron Yellow with Black leather upholstery, this particular example was supplied new by Christopher Neil Ltd of Northwich complete with the desirable Touring Pack. Serviced at 1,210, 8,125, 17,300, 20,336, 26,984, 29,928, 37,975, 44,519 and 52,796 miles, ‘DK55 ETA’ currently shows a warranted 54,700 miles to its odometer. Acquired by its last (third) registered keeper during March 2009, the Elise proved a reliable companion. Starting readily and running well during our recent photography session, the two-seater provides a notably engaging driving experience. Indeed, it still feels capable – in the best Lotus tradition – of showing a clean pair of heels to far more exotic machinery on the right road. The softtop is in good order and the presence of factory stickers within the rear boot compartment reassuring. Interestingly, it appears that the DVLA’s listing for the Lotus Elise 111R (Touring) amounts to just 317 cars. Offered for sale with original book pack, V5C Registration Document, two keys and assorted paperwork.

2005 Nissan 350z Convertible

No Reserve


1992 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet

Estimate: £12,000 - £14,000*

Reg No: YR05 GHH

The 350z has become somewhat of a cult classic, not only for its fantastic exhaust note, driveability and reliability, but also due to its use in popular film franchises including the ‘Fast and the Furious’. With values steadily increasing, these are a fantastic opportunity for the driver among us.

Presented in Black with contrasting Burnt Orange interior, this particular 350Z benefits from specification including air conditioning, cruise control electrically adjustable seats, 6 CD interchanger, telephone connectivity and much more. Now showing just 55,026 miles on the odometer with 3 former keepers, the car benefited from a replacement clutch and flywheel in December 2013, ECU remap January 2017 with rolling road power runs, which show an increase from 241bhp to 261bhp, replacement hood in July 2017 and more recently in 2021/22, a replacement exhaust centre and rear section, replacement battery, petrol air filter and a full detail.

Included with the vehicle is a comprehensive history file including its original bookpack, which contains service manuals, as well as the warranty and maintenance record which displays 5 stamps. As well as this, a large collection of previous invoices and MOTs, as well as the V5C document. The vendor rates the condition of the bodywork, engine, electrical equipment, paintwork, transmission and interior trim all as ‘Very Good’.

Reg No: J950 TRP Chassis No: WP0ZZZ94ZMN430358 MOT: December 2022

Introduced in 1989, the Porsche 944 S2 was powered by a 3-litre (2990cc) DOHC four-cylinder engine allied to a five-speed manual transmission. With a quoted 208bhp and 207lbft of torque on tap, the model was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 6 seconds and 150mph. The first open-topped 944 derivative - the S2 Cabriolet - featured a body built by the American Sunroof Company (ASC) of Weinsberg, Germany and many of the same styling cues as its Coupe sibling. Just 5,656 944 S2 Cabriolets were made before the model was superseded by the 968 in 1991.

Having been first registered in March of 1992 this very attractive and original-looking 944 Series 2 Cabriolet was delivered with the 5-speed transmission. Showing evidence of careful ownership and just 89,800 miles on the odometer, the car comes with its original Porsche service book with 19 stamps for servicing. A further 8 stamps show fluid, belt and condition checks at Porsche dealerships as well as independent specialist garages. The MOT history is extensive and includes an itemised list of service and repair work and a collection of invoices for parts and work carried out. Inside this 944 has a Blue leather interior with the Blue leather carried through to the dashboard steering wheel. A Blaupunkt Lausanne CD radio player provides the tunes for that perfect long-distance trip with the fabric soft top down.

2003 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante

2005 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG

Introduced at the March 1999 Geneva Salon, the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage eschewed its predecessor’s 3228cc supercharged straight-six for a 5935cc 48-valve, all-alloy V12 that developed 420bhp and 400lbft. Available with a choice of six-speed manual, five-speed automatic, or (later) Touchtronic semi-auto transmission, the DB7 Vantage could be had in Coupe or Volante (Convertible) guises.

Presented in Slate Blue with complementing Grey leather interior, this 2003 model year DB7 was purchased by its current owner in 2012 and shortly after, was subject to extensive works to bring it to standard, totalling over £11,000. Since purchase, the car has been dry stored, seeing occasional use, but turned over monthly and run to temperature, rolled to prevent flat spots and serviced routinely. Now showing just c.81,000 miles and benefiting from having had just 3 former keepers, this DB7 Vantage is offered with its original bookpack containing 16 service stamps, with the most recent with EMS Ltd at 79,862 miles. Also included is a hand-written expenditure record for 2012 when the car was purchased, a small collection of previous receipts and invoices and the current V5C Document. As well as this, the car boasts an MOT valid until 22 August 2023.

Along with the mid-generation refresh of the C-Class in 2005, the C32 AMG was replaced, giving way to a new 5.4-litre naturally aspirated V8-powered C55 AMG. This was an evolution of the V8 engine found in the previous E-Class, with power raised to 270 kW (367 PS) and torque climbing to 510 Nm (376 lbft). The C55 AMG uses a V8 from the same engine family as the W202 generation C43 AMG. Though maximum speed is still electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), the 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) time has dropped to 4.7 seconds. Unlike the less-powerful V6s in the rest of the MercedesBenz line-up, the C55 AMG continued to use the five-speed automatic with AMG Speed shift. The C55 shares its longer front end design with the CLK55 AMG to accommodate the larger 5.4-litre engine. The C 55AMG is one of two AMG models to feature different structure than its base Mercedes platform, the other being the W204 C63 with its custom elongated engine bay. The C55 was the first AMG C-Class to feature quad exhaust outlets and an external differential cooler. The Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time for the C55 AMG is 8:22 compared to 8:37 for the C32 AMG mainly due to the revised suspension and extra torque.

The C55 AMG offered here was originally delivered to Japan and first registered in November 2005. In 2021 the car was imported into the UK, with the odometer reading just 70,615 kilometres or 43,878 miles, which is warranted by the Japanese Export Vehicle Inspection Center (JEVIC) as the accompanying certificate will show. While in the current vendor’s ownership, the C55 AMG has benefitted from a recentMOT and service, new spark plugs and a replacement Lambda sensor. Described by the vendor as being in exceptional condition inside and out and driving as it should, the car comes with the owner’s manual, a JEVIC certificate, two sets of keys and recent invoices.

The chance meeting between John Cooper and Aurelio Lampredi at the 1959 Italian GP is now an established part of Mini folklore. Having charmed a very early 850cc model out of BMC and driven it to Monza, Cooper was accosted by Fiat engineer (and ex-Ferrari F1 designer) Lampredi. Infected by his old enemy’s enthusiasm, the Italian asked to borrow the new wonder car. Returning several hours later, he heralded it as the future of automotive design before adding “if it weren’t so ugly, I’d shoot myself”. Unperturbed Cooper continued to harass Issigonis and BMC until they agreed to build a ‘hot’ version. Initially conceived as a homologation special, the Mini Cooper was launched in July 1961. Powered by an enlarged 997cc engine and benefiting from front disc brakes, it gave way to a succession of ever quicker variants culminating in the 1275 ‘S’ of 1964.

Manufactured on 5th March 1964 and sold through Morris Garages Ltd of Oxford, ‘8007 ET’ was supplied new to the home market, in right-hand drive Mk1 Morris Mini Cooper 1071 ‘S’ form. Entering into the ownership of one family in 1977 (and remaining until 2003), during their ownership the Mini was subject to a full restoration, with the bodyshell receiving restoration in 1995. New subframes front and back were fitted with a bare metal repaint in Tartan Red and a Cambridge White roof, as presented today.

In 2009, the Cooper S was professionally built to a full race FIA specification at a not inconsiderable expense, with bills on file for during 2009 amounting to over £35,000. This decision was prompted by an announcement from Goodwood that the 2009 St Mary’s Trophy two-driver race would be run exclusively for Mini Coopers in celebration of the Mini’s 50th Birthday. Built to FIA spec and fitted with a full roll cage, Cobra seats with five-point harnesses, internally routed brake lines, heated front screen, plumbed-in fire extinguisher, and genuine Vortz ‘rose petal’ wheels.

The Saturday seat for the St Mary’s Trophy was offered to multiple CART Champion and 1986 Indy Car winner Bobby Rahal. Front-wheel drive Minis didn’t seem to appear anywhere on Mr. Rahal’s CV, yet despite this, he finished Saturday’s race in a respectable 13th ahead of some talented drivers including Jochen Mass, Warwick Banks, Vern Schuppan, Andy Rouse, Tiff Needell, John Cleland, and Stephan Johansson. Following the 2009 race, the car has seen very little competition use.

Powered by one of Swiftune’s legendary 1293 cc engines, incorporating a Tuftrided crank, race pistons, Stage 3 head, lightened and balanced flywheel, and twin HS4 carburettors, and is believed to produce 115bhp at the flywheel. To keep temperatures under control, it benefits from an oil cooler accompanied by a wide radiator coupled with a multiblade fan. The gearbox is a close-ratio fourspeed coupled to a competition differential and clutch. Hi-Lo adjustable suspension provides the handling and nimbleness synonymous with Minis and braking by way of ‘S’ discs and calipers up front and Minifins to the rear.

Accompanied by a large history file including restoration/build photographs, MOTs dating back to 1973, the aforementioned BMHIT heritage certificate, a large selection of invoices, and a copy of the Mini World article where it was featured as the cover car in June 1996. A very capable Cooper S with previous Goodwood experience and lightly raced since completion. A fabulous opportunity.

Integra Type


The Honda Integra Type R DC2 was a smash hit when it launched in 1995. Car journalists and motoring enthusiasts alike praised the little Honda for its incredible handling and performance. With such high regard for the first-generation Integra Type R, the second generation had a lot to live up to. The fourth-generation Integra would be introduced in Japan in April 2001, and produced until 2006. Ultimately, it would be regarded as one of the besthandling front-wheel drive cars of all time and is fast becoming a modern classic. The Integra received a facelift in 2005. The headlight and taillight assemblies lost the so-called ‘teardrop’ shape. This made the assemblies flush with the bumpers. The interior received new trim and gauge clusters, an immobilizer and alarm became standard, the body became stiffer, the suspension springs were redesigned, and the car’s tendency to bump steer was reduced.

Presented in Nighthawk Black Pearl with contrasting red Recaro seats, this stunning facelift Integra Type R was manufactured for the Japanese market in 2006. Imported to the UK and registered in May of 2021, the odometer now displays only 59,430 miles. ‘EG55 FWM’ comes accompanied with its Auction window display sheet, showing the car as a highly regarded Grade 4. As well as this, its Honda bookpack containing an impressive sum of Japanese service history and documentation. Within the bookpack is also the Japanese tear-out maintenance booklet, owner’s manual, Honda Safety Points manual, Honda Maintenance Notes booklet, another Honda booklet, Pioneer stereo booklet and further Japanese documentation. In addition, the car also includes its export certificate, as well as the Kenwood stereo manual still in its plastic wallet, with spare lead, remote, radio code card and manuals. Finally, a spare key and the UK V5C document which displays ‘zero’ previous keepers.

1983 BMW

Alpina B2.8

Estimate: £39,000


Built between 1981 and 1985, this is one of less than ten cars that are thought to have survived. Supplied with the M30 528i straight six-cylinder engine that was upgraded as part of the conversion with the Alpina B9 type exhaust system, and the power output measured an impressive 192bhp at 5800rpm. Alpina springs and Bilstein gas dampers cost a considerable premium over the BMW 528i SE (E28) upon which it was based.

Manufactured in 1983, this B2.8 is a rare UK-supplied, right-hand drive, 5 speed manual example, being supplied new via Western Counties BMW and is finished in stunning Henna Red In previous long-term ownership, from 1988 until 2021, and remaining in storage from 2006 until the end of that period, ‘A818 VNY’ has covered just 54,460 miles from new, at the time of consignment, and has had only four former keepers.

The Alpina specification visually includes; Alpina 16in wheel rims, dealer stripe kit, Alpina front spoiler, rear spoiler, Alpina badges and dashboard plaque and steering wheel. It has benefitted from recommissioning in 2022, which includes full brake overhaul with new discs, pads, and hoses; full service; new fuel tank and fuel lines; valve clearances adjustment and general thorough check through.

In the last six months thousands of pounds have been spent and a massive amount of man hours improving and transforming this example to the car presented today. The exterior has been repainted in factory correct Hennarot (Henna Red) paint, the engine bay has been refreshed, being cleaned, repainted and detailed and ancillaries have been replaced/refurbished where required. The original wheels have been fully refurbished. Original Alpina & BMW parts have been sourced from Germany at great cost to complete this car as accurately as possible including a correct Gold stripe kit, original Alpina rear spoiler, all badges, Alpina wheel centres, fog lamps, grille and many other parts.

‘A818 VNY’ is offered with the original book pack, including the original stamped handbook, a current V5C, and is MOT’d until April 2023.

809J MOT: Exempt

Using body moulds taken from a Cobra MKII as its basis, the BRA 289 was among the first evocations to appear on the UK market with over 260 examples being produced from 1981 to 1998. Designed by John Berry and Peter Ibbotson in Doncaster, its bespoke square-section tubular chassis made use of MGB running gear (front suspension, steering, rear axle etc) and was clothed in lightweight fibreglass. Rover’s delicious sounding, allalloy 3.5 litre V8 engine was the powerplant of choice often allied to five-speed manual transmission. A power to weight ratio of over 200bhp per ton was readily achievable and fun behind the wheel all but guaranteed if a BRA 289 was built / set-up correctly.

An accompanying photo album shows the care and consideration that Rodney Rushton of The Laleham Forge & Engineering Company put into constructing this particular example. Displayed at the National Component Car Show midbuild, the two-seater is understood to have been fitted with a Rover 3.5 litre V8 engine tuned to circa 225bhp and allied to a strengthened five-speed manual gearbox. Further benefiting from BRA’s optional Handling Pack and an estimated 100 hours of preparation work prior to being painted Ferrari Red, the twoseater also boasted a soft-top, hardtop, tonneau cover and sidescreeens. Interestingly, the MG B Roadster which served as its donor is understood to have appeared in the TV series, Inspector Morse. Sparingly used since being purchased from Classic Cars & Campers Ltd of Herefordshire for £14,900 in June 2019, ‘VOJ 809J’ is now in need of recommissioning. Registered with the DVLA as a BRA / MG 289 MKII, it passed its last MOT test on 26th February 2020 with ‘no advisories’ (less than 200 miles ago). Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, sales invoice and the aforementioned photo album.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera

Targa Sport

Estimate: £40,000 - £45,000*

Developed under the watchful eye of Porsche Chief Executive Peter Schutz, the 911 Carrera 3.2 made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show of September 1983. Estimated to be 80 percent new, the model’s 3164cc (hence ‘3.2’) flat-six engine was credited with developing some 231bhp and 209lbft of torque. Allied to a fivespeed manual transmission, it proved both rev-happy and flexible, making the model capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and a 153mph top speed. In order to cope with the increased performance, the brakes were enlarged and the top two gear ratios slightly raised. Among other improvements was a redesigned timing chain tensioner - the Achilles heel of the earlier engines. Early examples of the 3.2 employed the 915 type manual gearbox with reverse gear located beneath fifth, while 1987 to 1989 models had the stronger G50 unit in which reverse was located beside the fifth ratio. An optional ‘Sport’ pack became available during 1984, comprising a deeper front valance, ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler, stiffer Bilstein dampers and 16-inch Fuchs forged alloy wheels with Black centres.

Here we have a wonderful example of the much sought after Porsche 911 Carrera - Targa Sport, finished in Grand Prix White with a Black Targa Top that is in great condition. The interior is impressive with its Blue leather and Red seat piping, which we are informed was an original option at the point of ordering.

“G743 GJT” was first registered in 1989 and was a factory “UK Sport” model specification, which included electronically adjustable seats, air conditioning, electric windows and the iconic “Whale Tail” spoiler. The 231 BHP 3.2 litre normally aspirated flat-six engine supplies the power to the much favoured G50 manual transmission, it can propel the car from 0-60 mph in just 5.3 seconds and achieve a top speed in excess of 150mph. Its worth noting that the speedometer was replaced on 11th September 1990 by Mann Island official Porsche centre when it had 8577 recorded, therefore the total mileage covered is now c.108,000, this is correctly documented in the service record. The vehicle comes with a comprehensive service history carried out mainly by Porsche main dealer and Specialist garages, the service book shows that the vehicle has covered only c.500 miles since its last service. As well as benefitting from a Clifford alarm plus immobiliser the car will be sold with 2 original keys, 2 original alarm fobs and comes complete with bookpack, service records, V5C, and original jack and tool kit. This is a great opportunity to purchase an iconic “Fast Road” classic Porsche that presents really well and has clearly been looked after.

1975 Ford Escort RS2000 Evocation

The MkI Ford Escort was introduced in Ireland and the United Kingdom at the end of 1967, making its show debut at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. The Escort had conventional rear-wheel drive and a four-speed manual gearbox, or threespeed automatic transmission. The suspension consisted of MacPherson strut front suspension and a simple live axle mounted on leaf springs. The Escort was the first small Ford to use rack-and-pinion steering. The MkI featured contemporary styling cues in tune with its time: a subtle Detroit-inspired “Coke bottle” waistline and the “dogbone” shaped front grille – arguably the car’s main stylistic feature.

Manufactured in 1975, chassis number ‘BBATPA79227’ was supplied new to the European market. Discovered by the vendor in Malta in 2016, when on holiday in the country, the vendors purchased the car from the owner and arranged for its repatriation to the United Kingdom that same year. An evocation of the iconic RS2000, ‘KAJ 163N’ began life originally as a 1300 two-door, since being fitted with a 2.1 litre Pinto straight-four engine allied to a five-speed Type-9 manual gearbox. Finished in Black with a complementing Black interior upholstery, the Escort has been fitted with new RS alloy wheels and tyres, a twin-box RS2000 exhaust system; RS2000 alloy sump and bell housing during current ownership, as well as the RS steering wheel.

Subject to much further improvement while with the vendor, the work has included a full interior refresh with retrimmed seats and a Newton Commercial carpet set; bare metal repainting; new front discs and pads; new top mounts, ball joints and Bilstein front struts; a replacement distributor; and rolling road tuning in 2021. With a recorded mileage of 73,337 miles (at time of consignment), the Ford is accompanied by a history file comprising of a collection of invoices relating to the vendor’s improvements, previous MOT certificates and a current V5C. The Escort is also expected to possess a fresh MOT certificate in time for sale.

1998 TVR


Introduced at the 1992 Motor Show, the Chimaera was intended to be a more practical, user-friendly machine than the formidable Griffith. To this end, it sported a proper boot and a more cosseting interior. Power came from a variety of Rover V8-derived units, though, even the entry-level 4.0 litre was quoted as developing 240bhp/270lbft. The slowest of the range, it was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds, 0-100mph in 12.1 seconds and 152mph! Luckily all Chimaeras came with four-wheel disc brakes and a Quaife differential as standard.

A 4.5 litre model was added to the line-up in 1997. Peter Wheeler took over TVR Engineering in 1982 and Rover V8s up to 4.5-litres were developed. It was originally intended to be fitted with the AJP8 V8 engine but due to the engine not being ready on time, a bored version of the Rover V8 was used instead. The Chimaera 450 was said to offer 285bhp and 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds.4,546cc

With an original order form still with the car, dating from 1998, this Chimaera 4.5 (aka 450) was supplied new by S.P Brough and Company that year. Finished in Starmist Blue with Light Grey hide, with just 1 former private keeper we are told it has always been garage stored. Power steering is a welcome option as part of the package and the alloy wheels have recently been refurbished. An appropriate TVR related plate, ‘S123 TVR’ is offered as part of the sale.

Last serviced in 2020 at 54,923 with a brake and clutch fluid change, the 4.5 is offered with a collection of invoices for the servicing. There are two keys and two key fobs along with an owner’s wallet and service book with 22 stamps from an independent specialist and will be offered with a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale.

c.£25,000 spent on the build

The original Mini was a revolution on wheels, offering iconic style and space for the masses. The fuel crisis beating ‘people’s car’ that became a fashion icon, synonymous with Britain and the ‘swinging ‘60s. The mechanical genius of the design placed the ubiquitous ‘A-Series’ engine transversely across the frame with the gearbox with its sump. A rubber cone suspension replaced springs, accentuating the ‘go kart’-like handling and allowing for 80 percent of the floorpan to be used by passengers and their luggage.

Described by the vendor as a ‘no expense spared’ custom build by Chay Spellman from Mini World on the Costa Del Sol, it was actually circa £25,000 that was spent on the builder’s vision for this Mini. The new Pearlescent Pink and White paintwork alone would have been a healthy chunk of that, however, the specification goes beyond paint. Upgraded with a fuel-injected 1480cc ‘Mini Speed’ engine and a stainless exhaust, the car sits on Hi-Lo suspension, Spax shock absorbers and 7x13 ‘ultra-light’ 8-spoke chrome Minilite-style wheels. Inside the dashboard has been given a fabulous looking Cooper 500 dash with Pink and White Alcantara seats with silver stitching and Swarovski badges. Since the finish of the build, it has covered just 14,500 miles (new clocks fitted) since, rarely seen the rain and was subject to a full service in 2021.

Extensive service history

Estimate: £50,000 - £60,000*

The most successful Formula One team of the 1970s with four World Championships to its credit, that same decade saw Lotus launch a credible rival to the Ferrari 308 and Porsche 911. Unveiled at the October 1975 Paris Salon, the Esprit was notable as one of Giorgetto Guigiaro’s earliest polygonal designs. A mid-engined two-seater equipped with all-round independent coil-over suspension, four-wheel disc brakes and rack and pinion steering, the newcomer also featured a recumbent, racing car-esque seating position. Powered by a 1973cc DOHC four-cylinder engine allied to five-speed manual transmission (housed in a transaxle), the fibreglass-bodied Esprit weighed just 900kg. Although road testers found it difficult to emulate the factory’s performance figures (0-60mph in 6.8 seconds and 137mph), their praise for the Lotus flagship’s ride / handling balance and overall poise was universal. Arriving in 1978, the Series 2 (or S2) version sported an integral front spoiler, revamped interior, C-post ducts, bespoke 14-inch alloy wheels and new taillights. More refined than its predecessor, production lasted until 1981 by which time some 1,061 had been made. However, by far the most famous and sought after S2 derivative was the ‘World Championship Commemorative Model’. Released in 1978 to celebrate Lotus winning its seventh World Championship title that year and finished in the same, highly distinctive Black and Gold ‘JPS’ livery as the company’s Formula One cars, the original idea had been to build 300 (100 for the UK, 100 for America and 100 for the Rest of the World). In practice less than half that number are thought to have been completed with the UK receiving 92 or 94 examples (sources differ).

According to an accompanying Group Lotus PLC facsimile, this particular example – chassis 79020641G – was UK car number 61. Completed on 20th February 1979, it was road registered less than two weeks later and supplied via the London Lotus Centre of Chelsea. Exceptionally original, the Esprit is warranted to have covered only 26,000 miles from new. The ‘JPS’ livery is no longer perfect with signs of crazing in the gel coat and micro blistering etc but, if anything, that only reinforces the car’s authenticity. The interior trim is notably well preserved with the model specific three-spoke Mario Andretti-signed, leather-rimmed steering wheel and commemorative plaque remaining in situ. More unusually, ‘FBC 199T’ is also able to boast its factory-fitted Hitachi Digital stereo complete with ‘JPS’ knobs not to mention its ‘JPS’ logoed gear lever and door-mounted cigarette lighters. Purchased by the vendor from marque specialist Bell & Colvill under the Lotus Approved Used Car scheme at 22,575 miles in May 2011, the Esprit joined his collection of Lotus single-seaters, road cars and memorabilia. Sparingly used over the past eleven years, the two-seater was entrusted to the renowned Paul Matty Sports Cars for a new exhaust and cambelt plus attention to its cooling fans and carburettors etc. during April 2019 at 25,822 miles (£2,882.69).

1976 Pontiac Firebird

Estimate: £30,000 - £40,000*

Mixing two of America’s great loves, the motorcar and the big screen, can have a seismic effect on popular culture. Petrolheads around the globe struggle to disassociate a Highland Green Ford Mustang Fastback from Steve McQueen’s Frank Bullitt (‘Bullitt’), a speeding DeLorean from Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly (‘Back to the Future’) or a Black and Gold Pontiac Firebird from Burt Reynolds’ Bo ‘Bandit’ Darville (‘Smokey and the Bandit’). Of the three iconic machines, it is the Firebird which had by far the biggest starring role. Indeed, director Hal Needham often cites the Pontiac as one of his film’s biggest characters!

Although ‘Smokey and the Bandit’ was the second highest grossing film of 1977 (behind Star Wars), much of it had been shot the previous year. All four of the Firebirds that Pontiac supplied were actually 1976-model year cars with 1977-model year front ends grafted on. Conscious of this ‘anorak fact’, the previous owner of chassis 2T87M6N595918 actively sought a 1976 model-year car in which to live out his Bandit dreams. A true fan, he recreated various scenes from the film including having a police car pictured in his driver’s door mirror and running in convoy with a big rig as well as participating in the 40th Anniversary ‘Bandit Run’. The Firebird he chose began life as one of the more luxurious Esprit models equipped with a 350 cu in (5.7 litre) V8 engine allied to automatic transmission. Repainted in the trademark Black and Gold colour scheme, the 2+2-seater’s exterior also sports a ‘flaming chicken’ bonnet decal, Gold-centred alloy wheels and lift-out targa roof panels. While, the interior’s Black upholstery is offset by an authentic-looking anodised Gold dashboard and a (non-functioning) CB radio. Starting readily and running well during our recent photography session, the Pontiac sounds decidedly menacing courtesy of its non-standard exhaust system. However, the ‘icing on the cake’ so to speak are the genuine Burt Reynolds signatures to the centre armrest and ‘Bandit’ rear number plate which were obtained when the legendary actor made his final public appearance at Bubba Fest in Tennessee, August 10th-12th 2018.

Among the very last, and possibly THE last, Firebirds to be signed by Reynolds, chassis 2T87M6N595918 prompted a friendship between its previous and current keepers. Tragically, the former lost his life in a light aircraft crash on Independence Day. Imported by the seller and UK registered, this Reynolds-signed ‘Trans Am’ draws a crowd wherever it goes. A ‘must have’ for Bandit fans everywhere, it is offered for sale with UK V5C Registration Document, owner’s manuals and sundry paperwork. It is worth noting that a 1977-model year Trans Am which had previously belonged to Burt Reynolds sold for $495,000 nine months ago, while one of the Trans Ams used to promote the film in period fetched $550,000 during 2016.

Porsche 944 Turbo

Following the international success of their nimble 924, Porsche designed an all-alloy, 2.5-litre inline-four for their new 944 which they planned to introduce in 1982. Their talented engineers were able to produce a very smooth running four-cylinder engine by utilising two counter-rotating balance shafts running at twice engine speed. The result is a large fourcylinder engine that feels as turbine-smooth as a six-cylinder. A turbocharged version of the 944 was always on the cards, and for the 1985 model year, Porsche introduced the 944 Turbo, known internally as the 951. Forced induction boosted the 2.5-litre engine by a healthy 60bhp, up to 217bhp, with the clutch and gearbox uprated to suit while the Turbo S version of model year 1988 produced up to 250 hp thanks to its larger turbocharger. For model year 1989, the 944 Turbo received the same engine as the Turbo S model. The 944 Turbo also featured several other changes, such as improved aerodynamics, notably an integrated front bumper, standard external oil coolers for both the engine and transmission, standard 16-inch wheels (optional forged Fuchs alloys), and a slightly stiffer suspension set-up. The Turbo’s front and rear brakes were borrowed from the Porsche 911, with Brembo 4-piston fixed callipers and 12-inch discs. ABS was also standard.

This Porsche 944 Turbo was first registered on the 4th of January 1989 and is an original UK-supplied, right-hand drive example finished in the striking combination of Porsche White with a Black cloth and leather interior upholstery. The Porsche is fitted with the turbocharged 2479cc four-cylinder engine mated to the uprated five speed manual gearbox and has the optional glass sunroof. Having covered a total of just over 85,000 miles from new, the 944 Turbo has had only eight former keepers and been in the present ownership since September 1999. In that time it has often been shown at various events and, reputedly, it has frequently been placed in the top 3 of the many Porsche Owners Club meetings and shows it attended. This exceptional 944 Turbo is offered with a comprehensive history file showing it has a full up to date service record including a fresh cambelt replacement and a new head gasket fitted, a sheaf of invoices, the original book pack and two factory keys with a working original alarm/immobiliser.

1999 Lotus Elise TT190 Supercharged

The Lotus Elise was rightly described as the world’s most advanced sports car when it made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1995. Famously named after a granddaughter of Romano Artioli, the then chairman of Lotus, it was built on a futuristic epoxy-bonded extruded aluminium chassis and all designed and developed in-house at Lotus.

The time-honoured relationship between ‘form and function’ was clearly evident in the way the Elise handled, with doublewishbone, independent coil-over suspension, rack and pinion steering, and ventilated disc brakes. Its lightweight chassis-tub, at just 690kg and two-piece ‘clamshell’ fibreglass bodywork paired to a mid-mounted, 1.8-litre K-series engine, produced 118bhp, enough to propel the car to 60mph in just 6.1 seconds with more than adequate torque.

This particular Elise, first registered in March 1999, is a rather special iteration, having been fitted with the ever popular Turbo Technics TT190 Supercharger conversion by Hanger 111 when just 5000 miles old. This particular system results in a power increase from the 118 BHP as standard, to an astonishing 188bhp, with 170lb-ft torque. Purchased by its current owner from Cotswold Motorsport in July 2019, ‘T945 JOG’ has now covered just 33,411 miles from new, with only 4 former keepers and has been looked after largely by Lotus and performance car specialists.

‘T945 JOG’ comes accompanied with its original book pack containing driving controls, technical data and warranty booklet, dealer directory and maintenance record book. As well as this, a copy of the original purchase order, Lotus EEC Certificate of Conformity, a large collection of previous MOT certificates and invoices, the current V5C document and two sets of keys with accompanying fobs.

Ferrari 360

Introduced in 1999 as a replacement for the F355, the 360 was an entirely new design featuring an aluminium spaceframe chassis which was 40% stiffer and 28% lighter than the tubular steel arrangement of its predecessor. The revised bodywork resulted in the downforce being improved by a factor of four over the F355. Powered by a 3.6-litre V8 coupled to either a six-speed manual or F1 electrohydraulic manual transmission, the 360’s lighter weight improved the 0-60 mph dash to just 4.2 seconds with a nominal top speed of over 180mph. In 2001, the ‘Spider’ version was introduced, the stiffness of the spaceframe being ideally suited to handle an open top. This was followed in 2003 by the ultimate incarnation - the 360 racing series inspired Challenge Stradale - featuring a number of weight-saving and tuning modifications by the factory.

First registered in March 2004 by supplying dealer Graypaul of Loughborough, this late-model manual ‘Spider’ was acquired by the vendor in 2017 and has since spent its life in Northern Ireland at his holiday property. Retaining its full document pack, including factory-supplied service book; it displays eleven stamps between 2004 and 2018 from a combination of approved and independent specialists. The cam belts were replaced in 2014 and again more recently in 2017 at 31,088 miles.

The paint presents in good condition with only minor blemishes and scuffs reported by the vendor - the wings are also embellished with the optional ‘Scuderia Ferrari’ shields. Weather protection is provided in the form of a black fabric convertible hood, which is in good shape, with no rips or tears, and the mechanism worked perfectly during our recent photography session. The interior is finished in striking Crema and the condition of the cabin reflects the modest mileage, with minimal wear. There is slight rubbing to some of the buttons and controls which is a common issue with Ferrari cars of this period, and the original analogue Ferrari-branded stereo head unit has been replaced with a far more user-friendly contemporary system. Accompanying the car is the original leather document pack, including the Guarantee card from Graypaul Motors, factory toolkit, NOS Ferrari-branded tyre inflator and an indoor car cover.

This privately-owned Ferrari 360 Spider is a thrilling open-top supercar, which benefits from a timeless factory specification. Even more aurally exciting than the Modena coupe thanks to being able to drop the roof to listen to the glorious V8 behind you; this is a well-maintained car that presents well in arguably the most desirable colour combination. It is now ready to be cherished and enjoyed on the road by a new owner, and would make a fine addition to any collection of Maranello’s finest.

Styled by American Tony Lapine, Porsche’s front-engined, water-cooled, V8-powered 2+2 928 was launched at the 1977 Geneva Salon. Not only was it about as mechanically different to the ubiquitous 911 as it could possibly be, but represented the company’s first foray into grand touring territory. Nevertheless it received a rapturous reception from the press and was duly awarded the 1978 Car of The Year Award. Built from 1992 to 1995 the 928 GTS was the last evolutionary stage of the 928 model which featured flared rear wings, a red light panel at the rear, a rear wing painted in exterior colour, exterior mirrors in the Cup design plus 17” Cup rims as standard. The 5.4-litre engine of the GTS generated 350 hp.

It is believed that this 928 GTS was first delivered in 1992 through Porsche Malaysia to the Sultan of Brunei’s Royal Garage as its chassis number features on a published list of cars owned by the Brunei Royal Family in the 1990’s. It is finished in a striking Porsche Coral Red with a Black hide interior piped in Red and is fitted with an automatic transmission. After having remained in the Brunei Royal Collection for quite some time the car was acquired by a Brunei resident and subsequently had a few local owners before being imported into the UK in September 2020 by its only UK keeper to date. Since then the Porsche has been well looked after and after having covered less than 42,000 kilometres or 26,000 miles the car is said by the vendor to be in very good condition mechanically and cosmetically. Having undergone a recent service, this very low-mileage 928 with its special provenance comes with a partial service history, special Brunei Ministry export licence, a fresh MOT and current V5.

2005 BMW M3 Convertible

The E46 BMW M3 was previewed at the German Motor Show in 1999 as a concept. Although, when manufactured, the actual car bore a very close resemblance when it was introduced in October 2000, the E46 M3 was only available as a two door coupé or convertible body style. It was available with the 3.2-litre (3246cc) S54 M-tuned engine. The M3’s S54 engine had a redline of 8,000 rpm and as with most M engines, the S54 had 6 individual throttle bodies, in this case electronically operated (drive-by-wire throttle). With power going through either a six-speed Getrag gearbox or an SMG (sequential manual gearbox) drive logic transmission, the E46 M3 was full of electronic gadgetry, which included driver aids such as dynamic stability control, cornering brake control and a limited slip differential. With a reported top speed of 155mph and 0-60mph in a blistering 5.1 seconds, the M3 certainly lived up to its name and did not disappoint!

This example of the desirable E46 M3 Convertible was manufactured in 2005 and is fitted with the 3246cc M Power straight-six engine mated to the desirable 6 Speed manual gearbox. Finished in Metallic Silver complemented with a Red leather interior upholstery, Parrot phone kit and headrest TV screens, the specification certainly makes it into a usable and comfortable ‘mile-munching’ Munich cruiser. It is said to have had the boot floor inspected and requiring no remedial action, as historically there have been issues with cracks in the floor where the subframe mounts are located in the boot area. The M3 has covered 75,100 miles from new across six former keepers and was subject to a full service in 2021 and has recently benefitted from a wheel refurbishment and a pair of new rear tyres. It is offered with a bookpack, handbooks and service book with 11 entries, collection of invoices, old MOTs, spare key and rear parking sensors.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X – FQ-440 MR Is perhaps the ultimate Evo, only 40 were built to celebrate 40 years of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK and the end of the Evo bloodline. The “FQ” is rumoured to stand for something like ‘ferociously quick’ or something much less printable! which Mitsubishi have never denied or confirmed. With 440PS under the bonnet: an incredible 220hp per litre, delivered via a rather large turbocharger, custom intake system, intercooler and exhaust manifold from Janspeed, and bazooka-like tailpipes, the FQ-440 is not only “FQ” it sounds awesome as well. This road going Japanese super saloon is capable of 0-62mph in just 3.6 seconds and boasts amazing handling with its 4-wheel drive system, hi-tech suspension and Active Yaw Control, bringing the car to a halt is also enhanced with the beefed-up Alcon brakes. Power is transmitted to the 4 road wheels via the legendary Mitsubishi SST automatic transmission, with flappy paddle steering controls for those who prefer to control the shift pattern. The exterior styling of the car is not exactly subtle either, with lowered suspension, BBS alloys, front and rear spoilers, and a vortex generator on the roof.

Our vendor purchased ‘GT10 EVO’, No. 27 of 40 built, new from one of Mitsubishis’ premier Ralliart dealers in 2014 and the same dealer has maintained it ever since. Despite just having 1,800 miles on the clock at the time of consignment the car has been serviced annually by a team of Ralliart trained technicians and has a service book full of stamps to substantiate this. The vendor, an avid collector of special cars ordered the car from Mitsubishi with £10,000 worth of factory upgrades which included the Appearance Pack with carbon grilles in the wings and bonnet, bespoke full leather trim embossed with serial no. “027”, carbon dipped alloy wheels, premium mat set, privacy glass, and Cobra Trak 5 anti-theft tracking system.

‘GT10 EVO’, part of a large collection, has been dry stored in a heated garage from new and reportedly never ventured out in the rain. The story goes, that due to the considerable list of factory extras specified, the vehicle delivery deadline to our vendor was missed, by way of an apology and as a gesture of goodwill Mitsubishi presented the vendor with a ‘40 year anniversary EVO’ watch, which will be included in the sale along with a brand new ‘Ralliart’ garage sign. The car will come with the aforementioned extras, service book, owner’s bookpack, and V5C logbook.

‘GT10 EVO’ is probably the finest “near new” example of the iconic Lancer Evolution FQ-440 and perfect for collectors of such iconic cars.

1994 Toyota Supra Mk4

Twin Turbo

With its sizeable tail spoiler and bonnet scoop Toyota’s A80 model Supra Turbo certainly displayed the hallmarks of a performance 2+2, yet few British drivers will have experienced its full potential, as the sale car is understood to be one of just 250 genuine UK specification examples made. Think 320bhp resulting in a 0-60mph acceleration time in the mid 4 second bracket and an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph, rising to nearer 180mph if unfettered – i.e. serious performance even by today’s standards.

This rare UK-market Toyota Supra Mk4 Twin Turbo was originally delivered to its fortunate first owner by Rylands Solihull and registered on the 14th of November 1994. Finished in striking Red paintwork with a Beige leather interior, it is fitted with a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged ‘2JZ-GTE’ straight-six engine, producing 326bhp, coupled to a Getrag V160 six-speed manual gearbox with a Torsen limited-slip differential. Further improvements and upgrades include ‘Blitz Techno’ staggeredfitment alloy wheels with Pirelli P Zero Nero tyres, Brembo Gran Turismo brakes, a TRD fuel cap, adjustable HKS coilover suspension, an HKS competition exhaust and front-mounted intercooler, HKS and Samco hoses, braided oil cooler hoses, an HKS Electronic Valve controller and A-pillar mounted gauges, Momo pedals and a Cobra Cat 1 alarm system.

The history file accompanying the car shows that this Supra has been very well looked after and serviced regularly. In July 2021 it was serviced by Revolution of Bromyard, which included a timing belt replacement, fresh fluids and filters and two new Pirelli P Zero Nero rear tyres. According to the vendor the car drives and handles beautifully and is in stunning condition inside and out, having covered only 49,000 miles. It has had just four previous keepers on the V5c and was in single-family ownership from 2002 to 2021. Forming part of a private collection of 1980s and 1990s Japanese vehicles and having been used sparingly it is now offered for sale including the cherished registration ABJ 746. Accompanying the car is a large history file with owners handbook, stamped service book, invoices, workshop handbooks and drawings, tools and two sets of keys.

1987 Porsche 911

Carrera 3.2 Sport

Historically, and thus far, the most important Porsche model has been the 1964-introduced 911, which was to remain in production in much the same form for the next 30 years, albeit progressively updated and modified. With a basically similar layout to the 356, the new 911 was built on a steel platform chassis with suspension by torsion bars, Macpherson struts at the front and trailing arms at the rear. The first version of the 911 was powered by an air-cooled 2-litre, horizontally opposed six with 5-speed box first used on the 904 competition coupe. Capacity increased, first to 2.4, then 2.7-litres, whilst from 1984, the capacity of the legendary Porsche motor was increased from 3.0 to 3.2-litres and the SC 911 became the 911 Carrera.

Supplied new by JCT600 of Leeds, this Carrera 3.2 Sport displays just c.67,700 miles from new and has been looked after in current ownership since 2013. This is a desirable 1988-model year (‘J’ Series) example with the preferred G50 manual gearbox. Finished in the rare and stunning combination of Diamantblau Metallic (LM5U Diamond Blue Met.) which was only offered for two years; the matching Black leather upholstery complements the exterior colour and the marque. 2012 saw the car receiving refreshed paintwork and the interior trimmed in its factory colours.

‘E203 PHG’ is offered with 2 keys and the original book pack, with it’s owner’s manual and service book, the latter containing twenty-two entries. Additionally, there is a large collection of old MOTs and tax discs and with many invoices which include mechanical work in 2005. The last minor service was at 66,236 miles. The car benefits from a recent new battery, speed sensor, and a new front brake caliper in September 2022. The MOT runs through into April 2023. The vendor currently grades the paintwork, bodywork, interior, engine and gearbox as ‘Very Good/ Excellent’.

On the 27th July 1978, Lotus released details of the Esprit S2. The S2 was primarily a machine of greater creature comfort, rather than of improved performance. Made between 1978 and 1981, 1,061 S2s rolled of the production line. The top speed claim remained at 138mph for the 2.0 litre engine, whilst stability was improved via the use of the integrated front spoiler rather than a blade spoiler, seen on the S1. Additional aero included a set of ‘ears’ that were grafted onto the rear side windows and the S2’s rear received ribbed Rover SD1 tail lamps.

Finished in Bermuda Blue Metallic with cream leather interior. Offered here, is a Series 2 built for the 1980 home market. It presents extremely well, having had many thousands of pounds spent by its previous owner on a restoration project over a number of years. The car has been off the road and dry stored since 2014. Very low mileage of c.48,000, which is believed genuine. Mechanically, has had a thorough going over, servicing the engine, replacing the cambelt, manifold gaskets, cam cover gaskets, oil and filters etc. The engine and bay were then detailed and the cam covers were powder-coated and polished resulting in a superbly presented engine bay. The rear brake discs were replaced and the calipers were stripped and rebuilt and the front brakes were stripped & cleaned. The underside and suspension components of the car were then cleaned and the underside treated with fresh underseal. The interior was removed and completely re-carpeted and the seats cleaned and refreshed. The exterior was given a full respray and then polished & ceramic coated and the car sits on its fully refurbished alloy wheels.

A file with a large number of receipts and MOT certificates etc. accompanies this stunning Esprit, an iconic British Sportscar that comes fully prepared along with a fresh MOT ready for its new owner to enjoy. This is a fantastic opportunity to own a piece of British motoring heritage.

1984 Porsche 944 No Reserve

Porsche introduced the 944 in 1982 to replace the Porsche 924 as their entry-level model, although the 924 continued until 1988 as an even lower-priced alternative. Many Porsche enthusiasts considered the 944 to be the first real front engine Porsche, because it didn’t have the Audi sourced 2.0 litre engine from the 924. Instead, the 944 started life with a 2.5 litre straight-4 engine which was based on one-half of the Porsche 928’s V8 engine. Based on the earlier 924 body, some noticeable changes included flared wings, flared quarter panel and a larger rear spoiler.

Presented in Guards Red with contrasting Black cloth interior, this 1984 Porsche 944 was purchased by its current owner in 2013 with the intention of undertaking some minor renovations, but unfortunately never found the time. The car has been stored in a dry barn, with the condition of the interior and plastics clearly showing this, but is now offered for sale due to relocation. Subject to a recommissioning service including oil filter and plugs on 03 May 2022, this particular example is offered with related registration ‘OIB 9442’, as well as a small number of spares including drive belts, replacement gear cover and more. The odometer currently displays only 89,203 miles.

Offered with the vehicle is a comprehensive history containing a Haynes repair manual, 2x 944 service information manuals, its original leather bookpack containing pocket guide to Porsche ownership, letter from Porsche GB, Porsche Possessions booklet, Porsche directory and service booklet and maintenance book containing 10 stamps. Also included is a large collection of previous MOTs dating back to 1989, with most years from 1989 to 2005. As well as this, an extensive collection of previous invoices dating back to 1990.

2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI Tommi Makinen

Estimate: £38,000 - £45,000*

By mid-1996, Mitsubishi’s rallying success began to really reflect in Lancer Evolution sales. The 1996 WRC season brought Mitsubishi, together with a blisteringly quick Finn named Tommi Makinen, its first World Rally Championship drivers’ title. The fiercely competitive Makinen borrowed the phrase “maximum attack” and used it to devastating effect. By 1997, rallying had captured the imagination of petrol-heads all over the world and Mitsubishi sold 6,000 Evolution IVs in the first three days of its launch! In quick succession, the Lancer Evolution VI came to be and in the latter-half of 1999, Mitsubishi unleashed a special edition to celebrate its favourite son’s four consecutive WRC drivers’ titles from 1996-1999 - the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI ‘Tommi Makinen Edition’ (TME). The Evolution VI was already a technological tour de force, but the TME had a more responsive titanium turbocharger, uprated and lowered suspension (‘tuned to give improved initial response on tarmac surfaces’), quicker steering, a different exhaust, a new ECU, beefed-up transfer case internals, a redesigned front bumper for even better cooling and authentic 17-inch WRC Enkei alloy wheels. Plus, there was a special interior, featuring embossed Recaro seats, a MOMO steering wheel and red stitching. The performance upgrades saw the 0-60 mph sprint obliterated in 4.4 seconds and a maximum top speed of 150 mph. Power was rumoured to be over 300 bhp, rather than the 276 bhp ‘agreement’.

This particular Tommi Makinen Evo VI, a Japanese market car brought to the UK in November of 2006, is presented in the incredibly attractive combination of white with white wheels, and contrasting red and black embossed Recaro seats. Offered for sale with just 55,458 miles on the odometer, this incredibly collectible example has benefited from having had just 2 former keepers over the 16 years it has been in the UK. ‘W221 EHR’ has recently been subject to all 4 wheels refurbished with new centre caps, which have then been dressed in 4 new Toyo Proxes sport tyres, as well as a new battery. Unusually for a Japanese import, the vehicle is an extensive history file. Included is the Japanese service book, two Japanese owner’s manuals and further Japanese manuals, the number plate authorisation certificate, an English unstamped service book, most MOT certificates from 2006 to current, a large collection of previous receipts and invoices and a spare set of keys. The vendor rates the condition of the bodywork, paintwork, electrical equipment and interior trim all as ‘Excellent’, with the engine and transmission ‘Very Good’ purely as they are not standard.

2008 Bentley Continental GT Speed

Launched in 2007 at Laguna Village Polo and the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Continental GT Speed, available on the twodoor coupe platform only, featured an increase in power over the standard W12 being rated at 602bhp with 553 lb-ft of torque. 35kg was shaved off the weight over the normal GT, whilst its lower ride height and revised spring / damper and anti-roll bar settings improved handling. The 0-60mph sprint now took 4.3sec instead of the 4.6sec needed in the regular GT, and the top speed rose to 202mph. This electrifying performance was delivered to the road via 20” alloys with bespoke Pirelli P-Zero tyres. Further developments included the speed-sensitive Servotronic system being retuned, a solid-mounted front subframe and stiffer rear bushings added, and a ‘Dynamic’ mode for the Bosch 8.1 ESP system introduced. The front grille and lower air intakes were housed in a dark-tinted chrome matrix whilst wider rifled sports exhaust tail pipes adorned the rear.

Finished in Silver with contrasting Black leather upholstery, multi-spoke alloy wheels and interior wood accents, ‘YJ58 CXY’ has covered just 54,500 miles from new. A stunning looking machine, the Continental GT benefited from replacement rear exhaust boxes and repainted brake calipers in 2019. Treated to the last of eleven services during July 2020 (circa 1,400 miles ago), there can be few such inexpensive entries to 600bhp and 200mph-plus motoring! Steeped in history, it is almost a century since the ‘Speed’ moniker was first applied to a Bentley. Then, as now, it denotes a very special motorcar.

1984 Ford Escort

RS Turbo

Estimate: £18,000 - £22,000*

Developed by Ford’s Special Vehicle Engineering Department, the Escort RS Turbo broke cover in October 1984. A production run of 5,000 was planned to homologate the model for Group A competition but demand was such that 8,604 were made (with 5,576 being UK supplied). Only available in Diamond White - except for Lady Diana Spencer’s unique Black example - the three-door sported a comprehensive body kit and was powered by a turbocharged 1597cc CVH four-cylinder engine allied to a five-speed manual transmission. With some 132bhp and 133lbft of torque on tap, the ‘fast Ford’ was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 7.8 seconds and 128mph. Described by Motor Sport magazine as “perhaps the most enjoyable hot hatch currently available on the British market”, the Escort RS Turbo attracted a cult following that has gone from strength to strength, and with the model approaching its 40th anniversary, they could well be a very shrewd investment.

Manufactured in 1984, this RS Turbo was supplied new on the 25th of February by Hooley’s Garage Ltd of Nottingham to the first owner, Auto Windscreens of Chesterfield, who are understood to have ordered new a few Series 1 Escort RS Turbos, with this example being registered as ‘15 CXO’. Finished in the solely available colour of Diamond White matched to the iconic Grey Recaro interior upholstery, the Escort is thought to have been retained by Auto Windscreens until 1988. Presenting for sale now having covered a modest 83,136 miles from new (at time of consignment), ‘B490 GWF’ has been in current ownership since 2014 with seven former keepers.

While in the vendor’s possession, the Escort has benefitted from a new cambelt and tensioner less than 500 miles previous, as well as more recently, refurbishment of the RS alloy wheels, a replacement battery, and servicing. Offered with a large history file which contains the book pack comprising Motorists, Operations, and Dealer Guides, as well as the original service book. Also present is a handwritten log of ‘B490 GWFs’ maintenance, improvement, and servicing from 1990 onwards, with invoices dating back to 1990, twenty-eight MOT certificates dating back to 1989 (including a ‘no advisory’ MOT until June 2023), over twenty tax discs (dating onwards from 1992), a workshop manual, and a current V5C document completing the documents on file.

Pontiac GTO

Subject to a £150,000 build and producing some 750hp!



Reg No: BUU 37H Chassis No: CP24237 MOT: Exempt

The original much-vaunted series of GTOs reigned from 1964 to 1974 and were classic muscle cars of the period. Forced to adhere to the US manufacturers’ voluntary ban on factory-sponsored racing, GM had turned its attention to optimising the performance of its road cars, in order to maintain the interest of the young American enthusiast. The GTO was essentially the brainchild of three men - engine specialist Russell Gee, chassis engineer Bill Collins, and chief engineer John DeLorean; who later achieved fame for the car bearing his name and cheating the British taxpayer of millions of pounds. The GTO was DeLorean’s clever idea, but one strongly resented by Ferrari enthusiasts.

Originally conceived as a bare-bones, entry-level performance car, with the aim to counter the Plymouth Road Runner, the GTO Judge evolved into a top-of-the-line model for the GTO series and was available in both coupe and convertible body styles. In today’s market, the GTO Judge is now one of the most sought-after GTOs ever produced.

Manufactured in 1969, the GTO Judge offered has had somewhat an international existence, arriving in the United Kingdom very shortly after manufacture, and is thought to have resided in France at some stage since, reputedly while in the ownership of Argentinian footballer Javier Pastore during his time at Paris Saint-Germain F.C. Finished in the signature colour combination of Orange with Black leather interior upholstery, the Pontiac was the beneficiary of an extensive restoration and upgrade build in c.2000 with the cost understood to be somewhere in the region of £150,000 and producing a Judge with a massive specification and yielding around 750 horsepower.

The engine of choice was a Lamude Racing 455ci V8 with forged pistons, roller COMP cam, Edelbrock

Performer aluminium cylinder heads, Vortech supercharger, Holley dominator ECU, bespoke wiring loom, Edelbrock manifold fuel rails, Powertec starter motor, and an uprated regulator. The engine specification goes on with an uprated alternator, Accusump oiling system with electronic control, MSD ignition, distributor, 10mm leads, and with built-in full data logging. A Pro Alloy fuel tank with collector, Aeromotive fuel pump and filters and Aeroquip fuel lines throughout provides the fuelling with a Pro Alloy radiator, intercooler, and pipework cooling the V8.

Power is transmitted to the wheels through a Jerico five-speed straight cut dog gearbox and McLeod twin-plate clutch. Underneath, a Mark Williams nine-inch fabricated axle, locking differential, StrongArms front suspension, Hotchkis rear sport suspension (adjustable), and Halo adjustable dampers with Eibach springs all round control the ride and Baer/Alcon discs and calipers all round, allow the 750hp GTO the stopping power required.

The interior has been upgraded with diamond stitched leather upholstery and GTO embossing seats, Autometer gauges, a Hurst shifter, a hydraulic handbrake, and an adjustable AP Racing pedal box. The shell was provided with a full body-off restoration with bare metal re-painting and the external appearance is completed with 20-inch forged American racing wheels with Michelin Pilot tyres and an uprated exhaust system.

2009 Honda S2000 2.0i

Estimate: £23,000 - £26,000*

Reg No: PJ09 TYU MOT: June 2023

Chassis No: JHMAP11308S200820

The S2000 was Honda’s 50th birthday present to itself. From its 1999 launch to its retirement in 2009, it had the ability to more than hold its own against the Porsche Boxster for the thrills and ability. Powered by the 2.0 litre VTEC engine, exotic and reliable engine performance could be had without a turbocharger. The later Suzuka-built examples, benefitted from many improvements, such as the suspension, with improved geometry and stability. A subframe revision improved rigidity. Revised cosmetics included the bumpers and lights.

H&H are delighted to offer for sale this beautiful Honda S2000 2.0i VTEC Roadster finished in red with a full black leather interior. This is truly a stunning example that has covered less than 20,000 miles and has only one owner from new. PJ09 TYU also boasts a complete Honda service history as documented in the service book. The vendor has looked after and maintained this car incredibly well and it was last serviced by Honda at the beginning of June 2022. The overall condition of this wonderful car has to be seen to be fully appreciated.

2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 2S

Estimate: £32,000 - £36,000*

Introduced in 2004, the 997-series of Porsche’s iconic 911 allied all the technological improvements of its 996-series predecessor – a lighter / stiffer bodyshell, better suspension / brakes, four-valve cylinder heads and a superior HVAC system – to more classical styling. Available in Carrera or Carrera S guises when launched, the latter boasted a more powerful 3.8 litre engine (rated at 350bhp/295lbft), sports exhaust, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and 19-inch wheels as standard. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds and 182mph, it soon became a driver’s favourite. Better built and better looking than a 996 and smaller and more agile than a 991 (or current 992), great examples of 997 manual gearbox cars are becoming increasingly collectible.

Finished in the handsome combination of Aluminium Silver with Metropole Blue leather upholstery, ‘CN56 NYG’ was also specified with a sunroof, cruise control, Sat Nav, upgraded BOSE stereo and electric / memory front seats. Supplied new by Porsche Centre Cardiff, the 997 is warranted to have covered just 48,900 miles from new and to have been main dealer serviced up until 37,780 miles. Thereafter, it has been looked after by various specialists. Acquired by its last registered keeper in February 2014, the past 6,000 miles have seen the Coupe treated to a new brake boost vacuum tandem pump, Sachs clutch, rear main seal, air-conditioning condensers, front brake discs, coolant / AC hard lines and timing chain tensioner sealing washers etc. Last serviced by Octane Garage of Crowborough during December 2021 at 48,768 miles (including fresh brake fluid and spark plugs), the 2+2-seater started readily and ran well during our recent photography session. Able to outrun and outhandle 1980s supercars like the Ferrari Testarossa or Lamborghini Countach yet tractable enough to trundle to Tesco, the Porsche 997 is for many the definition of a modern classic. Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, book pack and history file, this smart, low mileage, manual gearbox 3.8 S example has much to recommend

Reg No: CN56 NYG MOT: October 2023 Chassis No: WPOZZZ99Z7S720165 49,000 miles from new

The limited-edition RS500 Focus launched for its global debut at the Leipzig Motor Show in April 2010 and marked the final swansong for the remarkable Focus RS second generation. Designated to highlight its strictly limited production run of 500 vehicles, all sporting their own individual number, power was provided by a 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine, which generated 15% more power than the standard Focus RS, with some 345bhp, driving the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. Sporting a unique matt-black paint finish and then given a professional 3M satin foil film wrap to complete the exterior, with matching alloy wheels, the raw appearance was completed with 19-inch wheels, flared arches, a deep diffuser, and a wing that would embarrass a Porsche Turbo, leaving no doubt about its intentions and delivering a powerful visual impact unmatched by any other production Ford. The ultimate performance Ford at the time of launch, the last of these remarkable vehicles left Ford’s Assembly Plant in Germany in September 2010.

One of just 101 examples supplied new to the United Kingdom, number 129 of the 500 total cars, was distributed to Ford dealers Cliff Dickenson & Son, and registered new to the Director at the time. Finished in the iconic matt Panther Black, the RS500 passed to a second keeper before being repurchased by the Cliff Dickenson Director. Subsequently purchased by the vendor in 2012 (equating to four recorded owners across three individuals), it has been retained in his ownership ever since, and at the time of consignment has covered a mere 7,879 miles from new. Factory equipment includes the Lux Pack 2, comprising a seven-inch screen with satellite navigation and a rear-view camera.

While in the vendor’s possession, the RS500 has benefitted from a fully refurbished head unit by Blaupunkt in Germany to the cost of some £550, as well as a replacement cambelt, water pump, and auxiliary belts and tensioners in 2020 at 7,396 miles (with the originals still accompanying the car). Serviced solely by manufacturer main agents with eleven service records, the most recent being completed in July this year at 7,851 miles. A further three body and paint record stamps and a brake fluid change stamp are shown in the accompanying service book, all also from Ford dealers. Offered with a history file which contains the full original book pack comprising the handbook, service book, quick guide, and initial shipping tags and stickers, amongst more, the file also contains corresponding service invoices, the vendors purchase invoice, a letter from Cliff Dickenson & Son, a no advisory MOT until August 2023 and a current V5C document.

Provided a new battery and four tyres in 2021, the vendor has changed the inlet plenum (a known fragility of RS500s), as well as the fog lights and Ford wheel badges, but the originals are all accompanying. Pleasingly retaining the factory Continental Puncture Pack, and seat cover, the Focus is offered with the apt registration number of ‘RS60 FLY’. Surely a great opportunity for the “Fast Road” collector, especially being a low mileage example?

Austin Mini Cooper

Reg No: WHL 297G MOT: Exempt

No: CA2SB/118701A

The Mini was actually detuned before launch in 1959. The prototype’s 948cc engine made it embarrassingly rapid compared with other more expensive cars in the BMC group, and it was downgraded to 848cc and 34bhp. A collaboration between racing car builder John Cooper and the Mini’s creator Alec Issigonis, the Mini Cooper debuted in September 1961 with the ultimate 1275cc S variant arriving three years later. Famously winning the Monte Carlo Rally for the third time in 1967, that same year saw the Mini updated to MkII specification complete with redesigned radiator grille, revamped interior, larger rear windscreen and a host of other minor changes. Total MkII Cooper S production across both Austin and Morris brands amounted to just 6,300 cars.

Built on the 21st of August 1968 and issued the London registration number ‘WLH 297G’in February of 1969, this is a 1968 MkII Mini Cooper S that is known to the Mini Cooper Register. It will come as no surprise then that this S is accompanied by a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate. The BMIHT Certificate states that the car was built for the right-hand drive home market in Snowberry White with a Black roof . The car has previously benefitted from an extensive restoration some years ago, c.1989, and still appears to be in excellent order, with the paintwork holding up well. ‘WLH’ wears some desirable extras that include MkII Cooper S factory-style reclining seats (from Newton Commercial in 2015), Dunlop alloy wheels, a tachometer, a polished steering wheel and period front spot lamps.

Of the many receipts, an engine, gearbox and head overhaul was carried out in 2002 by MED Race Engines of Leicester. A history file includes sundry restoration photos, numerous bills, old tax discs and MOT certificates and so on, dating back through the decades.

Reg No: TDD 354H MOT: Exempt

Chassis No: SB2541

Typifying the maxim that a whole can be greater than the sum of its parts, the Lotus Seven was introduced at the 1957 Earls Court Motor Show. Based around a multi-tubular spaceframe chassis, the aluminium-panelled newcomer was powered by a choice of Ford 100E, Coventry Climax FWA or BMC A-series engines. Popular with sporting motorists and club racers alike, the Lotus Seven evolved through Series 2, 3 and 4 guises before the design rights were sold to Caterham in 1973.

Looking at Lotus Register information, it indicates ‘TDD 354H’ left the factory on the 17th of October of 1969 and was first registered in Gloucestershire of that year. 1 of just c.340 Series 3 Lotus 7s made, before production ceased in 1969, this pretty example still possesses ‘in-period’ features. ‘TDD’ has benefitted from a recent restoration, however, it remains a notably correct car with what we understand to be its original factory bodywork throughout, original Lotus 7 steering wheel, road wheels and even windscreen bolts etc.

An extensive history file documents the car over the decades with many receipts reflecting sensitive upgrades and maintenance and they include invoices from Caterham Cars. Amongst the receipts are those for; a rev’ counter repair in 2013 and a carburettor rebuild kit; new starter motor; new seat belts and a new manifold in 2015. Around this time a modified Ford Crossflow head was made to 1.580 x 1.340 with hardened seats. As part of the file, there are old MOT certificates dating back to the 1980s, along with an old ‘Blue’ V5 document. A notebook documents the car through maintenance entry notes from 10,766 miles up to 83,575 miles! The factory-fitted engine has been thoroughly overhauled to ‘Supersprint’ (1700cc) specification and still requires runningin. The car is offered complete with the current V5C.

Bentley Continental Supersports

Everything about the Bentley Continental Supersports was engineered for a single purpose: to deliver the most exhilarating driving experience possible from behind the wheel of a Bentley. The fastest, most powerful Bentley ever, it features a significantly tuned, more powerful twin-turbocharged engine and extensive use of lightweight components throughout, including carbon fibre and Alcantara interior trim, and the largest carbon fibre-reinforced silicon carbide ceramic disc brakes on a production car. The result was 0–60 mph in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 204 mph. In 2011, the original Supersports was joined by a convertible version that lost virtually nothing to its coupe sibling; 0–60 still took 3.9 seconds and top speed was down by only two, to 202 mph.

Costing some c.£190,000 when new, ‘HF61 ETL’ was manufactured in 2011, being supplied new through Bentley Hampshire in Lyndhurst. Fitted with the 6.0-litre W12 twin-turbocharged engine allied to the six-speed automatic transmission, the Bentley is finished in Tempest Grey metallic paintwork with Beluga Charcoal leather interior upholstery on carbon sports seats. The interior is finished with carbon fibre dash inlays, diamond-quilted Alcantara door panels, drilled-alloy sports foot pedals, and a wind deflector. In current registered ownership since 2018, the Supersport has had just three former keepers and had covered a mere 34,570 miles from new at the time of consignment.

Specified from new with the cost optional extras of the enhanced vehicle tracker system, powered boot opening and closing, rear-view camera (in addition to the ultrasonic park distance control), TV tuner to the infotainment system, 20’’ Supersport wheels, and space-saving spare wheel. Further equipped from standard with Bluetooth telephone system, CD-Changer, cruise control, climate control, heated front seats, navigation with colour screen, rain sensitive wipers, electronic sports air suspension, ventilated and cross-drilled brake discs.

Available in Carrera or Carrera S guises when launched, the former allied a 3.6 litre engine (rated at 321bhp/273lbft) to either a six-speed manual or five-speed Tiptronic transmission.

Reg No: GNO 468H Chassis No: BB49KL22447 MOT: Exempt

Where the Ford ‘RS’ moniker started. The RS1600 was announced in 1970 and was the successor to the Escort Twin Cam model. 1970 was a year when the Daily Mirror World Cup Rally was won by Hannu Mikkola driving a Ford Escort whilst Escorts also won 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th positions. A 16 valve double overhead cam replaced the twin cam of the earlier performance model, the Twin Cam. As well as higher performance engines and sports suspension, like the Mexico these models featured a strengthened bodyshell.

‘GNO468H’ is believed to be one of the Ford press and development cars. It carries the ‘GNO’ plate, so often seen on these related to the Ford factory marketing and development activity and ‘Works’ cars, in fact it is ‘53’ number plate digits different than a Hannu Mikkola ‘Works’ Escort Twin Cam. An article in a club newsletter by William Arnold refers to the car as one of the Escort RS1600 ‘Press cars...’ also used ‘for development purposes’.

Evidently, the Escort has been used in Historic Rallying, with much of the specification retaining factory spec. or typical ‘in-period’ motorsport upgrades. ‘GNO 468H’ competed regularly as an RS2000 Mk1 between 2002 and 2010 as part of the British Historic rallying season, entered into Class C3 for the Bulldog Historic Rally 2002/2009; Harry Flatters Historic Rally 2008/2009; Robin Hood Historic Stages 2003/2004/2008; Pirelli Historic Rally 2009/2010 and the Isle of Man Historic Rally in 2009/2010, amongst others.

The 2002 MSA Competition Car Log Book is present, showing that in 2002 MSA documents state an engine code of D179428 (Pinto engine) and the specification uprated to RS2000 specification and a 2038cc fitted with twin Weber 45 DCOE carbs. Other details from the early 2000s, state the car fitted with an alloy dry sump tank and oil pump, alloy 13” x 6” Minilite 8 spoke alloy rims and Polycarbonate windows. There is a Brantz 2 rally navigator trip computer and motorsport seats and roll cage etc. Accompanying this RS Escort are multiple MSA documents, a copy of the ownership history from the DVLA and invoices relating to the maintenance of the car in recent years.

Launched in 1964, the Mustang was originally offered in Notchback Coupe or Convertible guise only, based on the underpinnings of the Falcon and powered by a range of six- and eight-cylinder engines of up to 289ci (4.7-litre) capacity. The ultimately more famous Fastback option appeared a year later, with the model’s first significant facelift occurring during 1967. If you are a fan of the model of Mustang immortalised by Steve McQueen’s Lieutenant Frank Bullitt, and one of the most memorable car chases in cinematic history, then you’ll probably be taken by ‘JGU 257C’, which is perhaps the best 289 Fastback we have seen, and one of the highest specifications we have seen.

Manufactured on 23 November 1964 for the 1965 model year, this Mustang has had somewhat of a globetrotting history, living in Florida until it was imported to the UK in 1998. In 2009, the car was purchased by its next owner, who lived in the Netherlands, Monaco and back to the UK, with the car in that ownership being used on a number of European road rallies at the time. In April of 2020, the car was purchased by its current owner, with the car being stored professionally since.

Presented in a beautiful shade of Pearlescent Green with contrasting Black interior, ‘JGU 257C’ benefits from an impressive specification, including Ron Morris adjustable engine mounts, Edelbrock Performer Aluminium cylinder heads, Comp Cams magnum aluminium roller rockers, Edelbrock Performer RPM high lift hydraulic lifter camshaft, Edelbrock Performer timing gear set, Edelbrock Performer dual plane with Endurashine finish, Edelbrock Performer 4bbl 600cfm carburettor with silicone vacuum hose kit, high capacity air filter with chrome housing, MSD Pro-Billet electronic distributor with Blaster II Coil, Ford C4 Automatic transmission subject to overhaul in August of 2009 with Tru-Trac limited slip differential, Wilwood Front disc brakes with power booster and dual circuit master cylinder with proportioning valve. In addition, American Racing Torque Thrust D wheels, dressed in B F Goodrich Radial T/A tyres, Chrome plated Export Brace, heavy duty rear leaf springs with KYB Gas-A-Just shock absorbers and Prothane bushing kit, Ceramic coated exhaust with Try-Y Headers, Pypes 2.5’’ stainless steel Street Pro with X-Pipe dual exhaust and electric cut-out valves, High output 130 amp alternator with compact high torque starter motor, Wagner Brite-Lite headlights, MustangProject.com sequential LED tail lights, LED parking lights and LED instrument back lights, Grant 15’’ Riveted Walnut and brushed stainless steel steering wheel and much more.

In current ownership, the car has been subject to works including ceramic coating, pressed number plates and a Vodafone S7 tracker fitted in October 2020 at a cost of nearly £1,500. As well as this, in July 2021, power steering was fitted, along with some corrosion around the front and rear windscreen apertures rectified and replacement door seals. The total cost of this was over £4,600.

Included with the vehicle is an impressive history file, containing an extensive collection of documents from its time in the US, Europe and the UK. Included are invoices and receipts mainly from 1998 to present, in GBP, USD and EURO which total over £53,600 at today’s rates. A specification list of the vehicle lists a printed timeline of most of the major works undertaken between 2012 to present. As well as this, the history file does include a Florida title from 1989, and included is an original 1965 Mustang owner’s manual, instruction manual, spare set of keys and the current V5C document.

Styled by American Tony Lapine, Porsche’s front-engined, water-cooled, V8-powered 2+2 928 was launched at the 1977 Geneva Salon. Not only was it about as mechanically different to the ubiquitous 911 as it could possibly be, but represented the company’s first foray into grand touring territory. Nevertheless it received a rapturous reception from the press and was duly awarded the 1978 Car of The Year Award.

‘H567 JDE’ was originally delivered to Japan in 1991 and is finished in the rare combination of Amazon Green (Dark Blue Metallic) bodywork and a Can-Can Red hide interior trim. It was ordered with protective side mouldings, top tinted windscreen and a leather dashboard as optional extras. In 2015 the car was imported into the UK and has only had 2 previous UK keepers. A Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms the original details of the car.

The Porsche’s comprehensive UK history file shows that it received a lot of attention since 2015 with invoices totalling over £6850 on maintenance including cambelt, brakes and discs, suspension dampers, replacement of aged hoses and various other items. The current vendor has had the car fitted with a 928sport ceramic catalyst and stainless X-pipe imported from the USA which, according to him, add a further 30HP. The original exhaust is included in the sale. Furthermore, the tyres were upgraded to Pirelli N specification and a high end audio system was also fitted.

The vendor considers the paintwork to be in ‘really good condition’ while, following a recent service, he judges all the mechanical ‘to be in very good order’. At the time of consignment the 928 displayed a total of just over 87,000 kilometres, which roughly equates to 54,000 miles. It comes complete with a full toolkit, additional service history, owner’s books, a collection of invoices and current V5C.

Introduced at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Lotus Elise was a driver’s car par excellence. A paragon of lightness, agility and responsiveness, the newcomer utilised a bonded extruded aluminium chassis clad with fibreglass body panels. Midmounted and allied to five-speed manual transmission, its 1.8 litre K-Series engine produced a modest 118bhp and 122lbft of torque. However, with a kerb weight of just 725kg the two-seater was capable of 0-60mph in 5.8 seconds and over 120mph. Able to glide over a broken British B-road in typical Lotus fashion, the Elise did without power steering, ABS or traction control and was all the better for it. Early models featured Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) brake discs which not only minimised unsprung weight but also provided great feel. Enthusiasts are already seeking out Series 1 cars (especially MMC equipped examples) as representing the purest incarnation of the Elise; a trend which seems bound to continue.

Having placed his order through the London Lotus Centre, the first owner of ‘R404 JTM’ was such a marque enthusiast that he made several trips to Hethel to observe it being built (the associated photographs remain on file). Passionate about the Elise, he not only had it serviced on an annual (and sometimes biannual) basis initially but also subtly enhanced the two-seater’s driving dynamics and interior with S2 suspension components and S2-style upholstery. Another Lotus aficionado whose uncle had worked for the Norfolk firm before becoming specialising in the marque, the vendor was drawn to ‘R404 JTM’ by its condition, originality and impressive history file. Only the car’s second owner, he rates the engine, gearbox, electrical equipment, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim as all being ‘very good overall’. The Dark Blue soft-top roof is in good order as is the ‘shower cap’ and underside. Starting readily and running well during our recent photography session, this low mileage Elise S1 has much to recommend it and would certainly grace a marque collection.

Porsche 968 Clubsport

Intended for enthusiasts seeking enhanced on-track performance, the lightweight Club Sport did without much of the 968’s ‘luxury’ equipment; for example: there was less sound deadening insulation and the window lifts were hand operated, though features such as air conditioning, a sunroof, and an audio system remained available as options. The rear seats were deleted; the fronts replaced with lightweight Recaro competition seats; and a non-airbag steering wheel fitted. There was also a less complex wiring loom and a smaller battery; the result being a reduction in weight of around 100kg when compared to the standard 968. Improvements to the running gear included revised suspension, lowered ride height and 17” wheels shod with wider tyres. In 1993, the Porsche 968 Club Sport was voted ‘Performance Car of the Year’ by the UK’s Performance Car magazine. Stated by Porsche Club GB to be ‘arguably best of them all’, supported by a number of racing drivers, who have quoted it to be the best driving Porsche in Existence, the 968 Club Sport is tipped to be one of the next investment vehicles to buy and one of the greatest cars of all time.

One of 179 UK cars, this particular example, a 1994 model year car, is presented in Guards red and features the highly rare and desirable Guards Red backed Recaro bucket seats. In addition. Factory specification including Limited Slip Differential (M220) with 40% lock, side protection mouldings, top tinted windscreen and detachable and electrically operated roof panel make this a very collectible example. Subject to a full respray in 2017, ‘M675 WEG’ has benefited from extensive maintenance including a major service along with replacement fuel pipes and belts in August 2020, and a subsequent service in August of 2021 including a power steering overhaul, and Waxoyl treatment. Now showing 128,708 miles on the odometer, equating to just 4,500 per year, the car is offered for sale to its lucky new owner.

‘M675 WEG’ comes with what could well be one of the best history files we have seen. Certainly at least one of the most organised. The ring-binder included contains an abundance of invoices and receipts for work done over the years, totalling over £27,500. The folder is separated and organised by year going back to not only 1995, but before it was new, with each year having a cover page for clarity. At the front of the folder, presented is the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity which supports that this Lancaster Cambridge supplied Club Sport was originally Guards red, with the red wingback Recaro seats, with the options as mentioned above. Towards the back of the folder, included are two press release information documents on the Club Sport from 1992, which detail technical information on both the 968 Club Sport and the 968. As well as this, there are also both original brochures for the 968 and 968 CS, with an invitation to apply leaflet for the CS and of course the current UK V5C document, which, although displaying 15 former keepers, does not detract from the fact this car has clearly been well looked after throughout its life. Additionally, and importantly, also included is this car’s original leather wallet including Porsche Assistance brochure, Porsche Service directory, driver’s manual and guarantee and Maintenance manual which contains 22 stamps, with the most recent by Porsche specialists Braunton Engineering in August 2021. In addition, the book includes 3 coolant change stamps, 4 brake fluid change stamps and 4 belt tensioner check stamps. With an MOT valid until 17 August 2023.

1.1 An Entry Form in respect of each Lot must be completed fully and accurately, with an honest description of the Lot, signed and dated by the Seller and accompanied by the Entry Fee, when the Lot is entered. The Auctioneer may at any time ratify an incomplete form.

1.2 Any documentation pertaining to the Lot must be sent with the Entry Form to the Auctioneer’s office, or in any event delivered with the Lot to the Premises. The Contract between the Seller and the Auctioneer will be formed when the Auctioneer receives a signed Entry Form for the Lot, whether by hand, post, fax, email or by any other means, and whether or not the Entry Fee for that Lot has been paid, and whether or not the Form has been signed by the Auctioneer.


1.3 All relevant matters pertaining to the Lot such as a financial encumbrance, serious accident damage or other factors affecting value which are known to the Seller must be stated on the Entry Form. If a sale is lost because of the failure of the Seller to disclose to the Auctioneer all information which may reasonably be expected to affect the provenance, title, value or any other aspect of the Lot, the Auctioneer will charge and the Seller must pay the stated rates (both to Seller and Buyer) plus VAT.

1.4 If the Seller wishes to retain the registration number of a Lot, it is the Seller’s responsibility to notify the Auctioneer in writing on the Entry Form. It is the Seller’s responsibility to take all necessary steps to ensure that the current registration number is retained and a new number allocated prior to the Lot being sold. If the Seller does not do so, the Auctioneer shall not be responsible for any loss or damage whatsoever and howsoever arising out of the Seller’s loss of the right to the registration number following the sale of the Lot.

2.1 The Auctioneer shall have absolute discretion whether or not to accept any Lot for sale and shall be entitled to select the auction place, date, catalogue placement and photographs for the Lot.

2.2 The Seller gives the Auctioneer full and absolute right to photograph and illustrate any Lot placed in its hands for sale, and to use such photographs and illustrations as are provided by the Seller at any time at its absolute discretion (whether or not in connection with the Sale), with indemnity against copyright infringement.

2.3 The Seller is wholly responsible for the factual accuracy of, and for any judgments or opinions expressed in, the catalogue description of each Lot entered by him, and for any error, misstatement or omission of information in that description. Whether the description has been prepared by the Auctioneer or the Seller, a copy of the typed text will be provided to the Seller within a reasonable time prior to the Auction, and unless the Seller reacts with comments or changes prior to the Auction, the Auctioneer may treat that description as accepted by the Seller.

3.1 The Seller warrants to the Auctioneer and to the Buyer either that he is the true owner of the Lot or that he is duly authorised to sell the Lot by the true owner, and is able to transfer or procure transfer of good and marketable title to the Lot free from a third party claims or encumbrances.

3.2 In the event of an unsettled hire purchase, finance agreement or any other charge or lien affecting the Lot, the Auctioneer reserves the right to settle the amount due of such charges not exceeding the Sale Proceeds and if the Sale Proceeds are less than the charges outstanding the Seller will be responsible for the settlement of the balance forthwith. There will be a charge of £75 plus VAT for this service.

3.3 Each Lot, in the condition as described on the Entry Form, and with all keys, spare or extra items and documents shall be delivered to the Premises at the expense of the Seller. The Seller of a Lot not held by the Auctioneer at the Premises or under its control warrants and undertakes to the Auctioneer that the Lot will be

made available and in a deliverable state at the time stated by the Auctioneer.

3.4 The Seller shall indemnify both the Auctioneer, its Employees and Agents, and the Buyer separately, against all payments, costs, expenses, demands, or any loss or damage whatsoever and wheresoever incurred or suffered by any of them in respect of any breach of these Conditions on the part of the Seller.

4.1 The Seller shall be entitled, prior to the sale to place a Reserve on any Lot, this being the minimum Hammer Price at which the Auctioneer is authorised to sell that Lot and to make its usual charges. A Reserve once placed by the Seller shall not be changed without the consent of the Auctioneer.

4.2 The Auctioneer may, at its option, sell the Lot at a Hammer Price below the Reserve but in any such case the Sale Proceeds to which the Seller is entitled shall be the same as if the sale had been at Reserve.

4.3 Where no Reserve has been placed on the Lot the Auctioneer shall in no way be liable should the Lot be purchased for a price below the lowest estimated selling price. In any event, any written or oral estimate of likely selling price given by the Auctioneer is an expression of opinion only and may not be relied upon by the Seller nor give rise to any claim.

4.4 If a Reserve is placed by the Seller in a currency other than Pounds Sterling, such a Reserve shall be calculated and converted into Sterling at the spot rate of exchange quoted to the Auctioneer by the National Westminster Bank Plc at close of business on the last banking day prior to the date of the Sale. The certificate in writing of the Auctioneer as to such rate shall be conclusive.

4.5 Where a Reserve has been placed, only the Auctioneer may bid on that Lot on behalf of the Seller. Should the Seller buy in his own Lot, the Seller must pay to the Auctioneer its stated rates (both Seller and Buyer) before the Lot is removed.

5.1 The Seller may by notice to the Auctioneer withdraw the Lot from the Auction. If the Seller does so he shall be liable to pay the Auctioneer the stated rate of the Seller’s and Buyer’s commission calculated on the estimated value of the Lot that the Auctioneer would have received had the Lot been sold for the estimated value. For the purposes of this clause the estimated value shall be the higher of:-

(a) the Seller’s estimate of value as previously notified to the Auctioneer 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, or if none,

(c) the Auctioneer’s reasonable estimate of its value; (d) plus VAT on such fee in either case and expenses;

5.2 In the event that the Seller withdraws the Lot from the Auction the Seller shall arrange for the collection/removal of the Lot at his own expense within 2 working days after the date of withdrawal provided that the Seller may not collect the Lot unless or until any withdrawal fee payable under Conditions 5.1 shall have been paid in full and any storage charges have been met by the Seller.

6. The Seller authorises the Auctioneer to deduct from the Hammer Price commission at the Stated Rate subject to the relevant minimum commission for each Lot, plus Expenses and VAT on both. The Seller acknowledges the Auctioneer’s right to charge and retain the Buyer’s Premium also in accordance with Condition 14.

7. The Seller of a Lot which is a road going means of transport warrants and undertakes to the Auctioneer that, as at the date of the Sale, either:

(a) the Lot will be VAT paid in the EU and registered in the UK, will be lawfully usable on the public road, complying with the provisions of current Road Traffic Legislation and all relevant regulations made thereunder and any statutory modifications thereof, and there is or will be in force an MOT Certificate required in relation to such use; or (alternatively)

(b) the Seller has notified the Auctioneer that the Lot does not or will not meet these requirements, and cannot legally be used on the road.

8. The Seller hereby agrees to indemnify the Auctioneer, its Agents and Employees against any and all claims, liability or damage and all related costs and expenses arising out of the proper execution by the Auctioneer of their obligations to the Seller under these Conditions, and in particular against any liability or claim which may be incurred by the Auctioneer as a result of any defect in the Lot, whether proving dangerous to human life or health or otherwise giving rise to a claim against the Auctioneer, or as a result of any default by the Seller or any breach of any of the warranties or undertakings herein by the Seller.

9.1 Where any Lot fails to sell, the Auctioneer shall notify the Seller accordingly. The Seller shall make arrangements either for the Auctioneer to re-offer that Lot for sale, or forthwith to collect the Lot and to pay the Expenses. If such arrangements are not made:

(a) by 1pm on the day following the date of the Sale, the Seller shall be responsible for the costs of any removal, storage and other expenses related to that Lot;

(b) within 3 months after formal notification by the Auctioneer to the Seller, the Auctioneer shall have the right (pursuant to the Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977 or any legislation that re-enacts or replaces it) to sell the Lot by private treaty or at public auction without reserve and to deduct from the Hammer Price or price received any sum owing to the Auctioneer including (without limitation) removal, storage and insurance expenses, the Expenses of both auctions, Commission at the Stated Rate on the sale and all other reasonable expenses, before remitting the balance to the Seller; or if he cannot be traced,


placing it in a bank account in the name of the Auctioneer on behalf of the Seller.

9.2 If the Seller later sells the Lot as a result of its exposure at the auction the Auctioneer will be entitled to their normal commission. In any event the Auctioneer will be entitled to try and effect a sale as the Seller’s agent within 14 days after the date of the auction (that time limit does not apply to a sale by the Seller). If the Auctioneer does so sell the Lot, they will also be entitled to their normal commission.

10.1 Where a Lot is sold, the Auctioneer shall initiate payment, by bank transfer, of the Sale Proceeds to the Seller 14 days after the Auctioneers have received in cleared funds the Total Amount Due from the Buyer. Should no bank details be provided by the seller, the Auctioneer will effect payment by sending its cheque, drawn in favour of the Seller, 14 days after receipt of cleared funds, by first class mail at the Seller’s risk.

10.2 If before the Total Amount Due is paid by the Buyer (whether or not because the Auctioneer has given credit terms to the Buyer) the Auctioneer pays to the Seller an amount equal to the net Sale Proceeds, title in the Lot shall pass from the Seller to the Auctioneer.

10.3 In the case of overseas Sellers, the Sale Proceeds will be paid to the Seller either in Sterling or in such other currency available to the Auctioneer as may have been agreed in writing between the Seller and the Auctioneer before the date of the Sale. The Auctioneer shall calculate the rate of exchange for the Sale Proceeds by reference to the spot rate of exchange quoted by the National Westminster Bank Plc at close of business on the date of the Sale, whichever is more favourable to the auctioneer.

10.4 If the Auctioneer receives notice of any dispute related to a sold Lot before the Sale Proceeds have been remitted to the Seller, the Auctioneer may withhold payment from the Seller until it thinks fit or until the Dispute is resolved, whichever is earlier.

10.5 The Auctioneer retains the right to withhold partial or total payment for any Lot if items committed to the Sale by the Seller and sold as part of the Lot, including any relevant documents, have not been delivered by the Seller.

10.6 The Seller shall maintain their insurance of the Lot until they are in receipt of the Sale Proceeds

11.1 If the Buyer fails to pay the Auctioneer the total Amount due within 21 days after the Sale, the Auctioneer will notify the Seller and take the Seller’s instructions as to the appropriate course of action. So far as in the Auctioneer’s opinion it is practicable, the Auctioneer will at the Seller’s expense assist the Seller to recover the Total Amount Due from the Buyer, but the Auctioneer shall be under no obligation to institute proceedings in its own name.

11.2 If circumstances outside the Auctioneer’s control do not permit the Auctioneer to take instructions from the Seller, the Seller hereby authorises the Auctioneer, at the Seller’s expense, to agree special terms for payment of the total Amount Due; to remove, store and insure the Lot sold; to settle claims made against the Buyer or the Seller on such terms as the Auctioneer shall in its absolute discretion think fit; to take

such steps as are necessary to collect the monies due by the Buyer to the Seller; and if necessary to rescind the sale and refund money to the Buyer.


12.1 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. The Auctioneer has to rely on information as to the date, condition and authenticity provided by the Seller and does not provide its own description, and does not and cannot undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lot and it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that the Lot conforms to the description in the catalogue. The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN number under which a vehicle is offered, but relies on the Seller’s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing, rallying or ‘exworks’ history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis, body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times, both in a vehicle’s ‘works’ career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes ‘works’ vehicles were fitted with different registration plates, so that a vehicle could meet a particular event’s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity.

12.2 The Buyer shall be the person making the highest bid at or over Reserve (if any) that is accepted by the Auctioneer, and the Contract shall be concluded at the fall of the hammer. The Auctioneer shall have the absolute discretion to settle any dispute related to bidding at the Sale. All sales are deemed not to be sales in the course of a business, unless notified to the contrary.

12.3 Every bidder shall be deemed to act as a principal unless the Auctioneer has, prior to the auction date, acknowledged (either by acceptance of the Bidder’s Registration Form which discloses the true principal, or otherwise in writing) that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of a disclosed principal.

12.4 The Auctioneer may in its absolute discretion refuse to accept any bid, advance the bidding as it may decide, withdraw or divide any Lot, combine any two or more Lots, and in the case of dispute may put up any Lot for auction again.

12.5 A prospective bidder should register his intention to bid for a Lot by completing fully and signing a Bidder’s Registration Form prior to executing his bid. If this has not been completed before the fall of the hammer, the Buyer shall forthwith complete the Bidder’s Registration Form. The Bidder shall also provide photographic identification. Failure to do so shall not invalidate the sale, unless the Auctioneer, in its absolute discretion, so decides.

12.6 Any bid which fails to reach the Reserve may be submitted by the Auctioneer to the Seller and if the Seller accepts that bid, the Lot will be deemed to have been sold to the Buyer at the sum bid at the fall of the hammer and the normal Terms and Conditions will apply to that sale.

13.1 Where a Lot is illustrated by a photograph, in the case of a vehicle with a registration number visible, that number will not be transferred with the vehicle to the Buyer unless the registration particulars appear in the written part of the description and the transfer has been authorised by the Seller. If the vehicle is sold to the Buyer before the formalities of the allocation of a different registration number to that vehicle are completed with the DVLA, the Buyer accepts that he will take all steps necessary to co-operate with either the Seller or the Auctioneer to have the number re-transferred to the Seller or as may be, and will take no steps to register the vehicle with the number in his name.

13.2 Whilst the interests of prospective Buyers are best served by personal attendance at the Sale, the Auctioneers will if so instructed execute bids on their behalf. Neither the Auctioneer nor its Employees or Agents will be responsible for any error or default in doing so or in failing altogether to do so. Where the Auctioneer executes bids on behalf of an absent bidder, each Lot will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and any relevant Reserve.

14. The Buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer in respect of each Lot the Buyer’s Commission calculated on the Hammer Price at the stated rates as set out above.

15. Where a Lot is described in the Catalogue or announced at the time of Sale as being subject to VAT on import, VAT will be payable in addition to the Hammer Price (which VAT may or may not be refundable by HM Customs & Excise on proof of export).

16.1 Upon the sale of a Lot, the Buyer shall:

16.2 Unless he has already done so, complete a Bidder’s Registration Form as in Condition 12.5 above;

16.3 Pay to the Auctioneer the total amount due, at latest by midday on the day after the Sale, notwithstanding that where the Buyer wishes to export the Lot, an export licence may be required which must be obtained by the Buyer at his own cost;

16.4 Accept that any payments received by the Auctioneer from a Buyer may be applied by the Auctioneer towards any sums owing from that Buyer to the Auctioneer on any account whatsoever, without regard to any directions of the Buyer or his agent, whether express or implied.

17.1 Until the total amount due has been received by the Auctioneer:

(a) title in a Lot shall not pass to the Buyer but the risk shall;

(b) no Lot may be taken away by or on behalf of the Buyer.

17.2 The Buyer shall be responsible for any removal, storage and insurance charges and any other Expenses on any Lot not paid for and taken away from the by 1pm on the day following the day of the sale.

17.3 If the Lot remains under the vendor’s control for any reason, either at their property or a third-party one, then the Buyer must remove it within ten days of the sale. Failure to do so will result in the Lot being uplifted to secure storage at the Buyer’s expense.


18.1 If a Buyer fails either to pay for or to take away any Lot, the Auctioneer may without further notice to the Buyer, at its discretion and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have, exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies, as may be relevant, in relation to any and all remedies for non-payment that the Auctioneer may choose to exercise.
