Race Retro Competition & Classic Car Sale

www.silverstoneauctions.com


Welcome Welcome to Stoneleigh Park for Race Retro and our first auction of the year. It’s a privilege to be a part of this fantastic event, one of Europe’s premier shows for historic motorsport and I’m delighted to be back. We first hosted a sale here in 2012 and our auction has grown so much in that time, now with more than 90 classic road cars, 40 competition cars, watches, lifestyle items and automobilia offered over three days this weekend. As an historic racing enthusiast myself, this is one of my highlights of the year and I look forward to meeting as many other fans as possible over the weekend. The team and I have been exceptionally busy putting together a very special catalogue of highly collectable cars for your buying pleasure, which I’m sure will tempt you. Of particular note in the road car sale, and becoming something of a speciality for Silverstone Auctions, is the number of highly original, low-mileage and singleownership cars available, some offered on the open market for the very first time. As part of the dedicated Competition Car Sale there is a huge variety of highly competitive and successful examples on offer, many with recent victories and ready to race. 2016 was an excellent year for Silverstone Auctions and certainly surpassed our expectations. Our sale rooms were busier than ever, with many new clients buying and selling with us, and we finished the year with an amazing total of 445 cars sold for a total hammer value of £26 million, including an incredible 10 new world records. Details of this year’s sales are now available, so if you’re looking to sell then please speak with a member of the team. Back to this weekend’s auctions and with such a large offering, please do not hesitate to talk to a member of our team if you require any assistance with securing your dream car. Finally I would like to say thank you for attending this weekend’s sales and I look forward to seeing you again at one of our upcoming auctions. Good luck and enjoy the sales this weekend. Happy bidding!

This 1968 Rover 2000TC was bought in 1993 by classic car journalist, Mark Dixon, as a low-mileage, low-ownership and solid car that was an ideal basis to convert for endurance historic road-rallying. Holbay Engineering was tasked with gas-flowing the cylinder head and inlet manifold in a quest for more power and they also modified the cam profile and fitted a tubular exhaust manifold for improved torque lower down the rev-range. Additionally, a long-range fuel system and uprated springs and competition shock absorbers helped the handling, whilst a Safety Devices roll cage and sump guard provided additional protection.

this classic 2000TC and prepare it for competition use once again. The brakes received attention including rebuilding the rear brake calipers, and the whole car was carefully inspected before being offered for a fresh MOT test. The fact that the work involved only amounted to a modest £700 pays testament to the sound condition of this rally-proven Rover. Subsequently said to drive extremely well by a noted current motoring journalist, it would need minimal work and perhaps a little cosmetic tidying before tackling another long-distance road rally, making it a very good value proposition and a great route into International Historic Road Rallying.

The car took part in the punishing 1993 Classic Marathon to Morocco finishing a creditable 8th overall, and the 1997 Liege-Istanbul-Liege where it was rewarded with 7th place overall. It was then sold to Jan Pearce in 1999 and subsequently competed in the 2002 “Trial to the Nile” and the 2005 Classic Marathon to Croatia, as well as the 2006 Tatry Marathon to Slovakia. Sadly, Jan passed away in 2014, and the car has remained unused until November 2016 when the decision was made to recommission

This well-presented Escort was originally manufactured in 1974 but lives on as a purpose-built, tarmac spec club rally car. The initial build was carried out by an ex-Gartrac engineer and the car was fitted with a full cage, seam-welded, Group 4 alloy wheel arches, alloy fuel tank sitting on a lightened tank support, and a fibreglass bonnet and boot, suspension is by means of a four-link, Panhard rod, and gas coil-over rear setup, with Bilsteins on the front. Competition brakes with AP Racing calipers all round are in charge of the stopping department.

It is difficult to imagine a Stage Rally in the early seventies without the Mk1 Ford Escort. Those of us who put up with the really early morning starts and the trudge through dank woods over ankle-twisting tree stumps in order to get as close to the action as possible were often rewarded with the sight and sound of Escorts doing what they do best. You could hear them way before you saw them, the cacophonous howl of a BDA at 10,000 revs screaming for more cold air would echo up through the pines and then, suddenly, a pair of bright headlights on the outside of four seven-inch Cibie Oscars would burn a hole in the mist and then race past, only inches away, the exhaust resonating in your chest as your internal organs vibrate in sympathy, and if you were really lucky you would get showered in gravel as well. Addictive.

1974 Ford Escort 1300 Mk1

The car is fitted with an all-steel, 1300 BDH (BDA) engine which has the benefit of a dry sump oil system and is fuelled through twin 45 Webers. An earlier dyno printout, which is with the car, indicates that it was producing 147.2bhp and 96.3lb/ft at the flywheel at that point. A heavy-duty AP twin-plate hydraulic clutch is mated to the ‘Tran-X’ (Type 9), five-speed, straight-cut gearbox with an RS2000 bell housing, and at the rear, the power is distributed through a fully floating ‘Atlas’ axle with ‘ZF’ LSD and 5.8:1 CWP. Inside, the car has been prepared as you might expect with a bespoke dashboard containing the appropriate instruments and an accessible fuse board with ‘pop-out’ fuses supplied by a competition wiring loom. All the fuel, oil, and extinguisher lines are run internally. The pedal box is biased and the navigator’s foot brace is heavy-duty light alloy. We understand that the bucket seats and harnesses are now out of date for competition use. This is a good entry-level rally car with an MSA Logbook. The preparation and build appear to have been done to a high standard and the Diamond White paintwork is in generally very good shape, apart from the inevitable small battle scars, however, a little fettling and some updates on the safety equipment would transform this car. BDA-engined, Mk1 Escorts will undoubtedly have a long future in Historic Rallying and at this guide, TPU 534N could offer a sensibly priced entry into the club.

The Lotus Elise is a two-seat, rear-wheel drive, mid-engined roadster conceived in early 1994 and released in September 1996. This ‘96 Lotus Elise has been built to ‘Lotus Elise Trophy’ specification. During the build, a range of race spec suspension parts were fitted including new wishbone bushes, wheel bearings and ball joints all round, Hofmann’s ARB Nitron one-way damper 650/750 springs with helpers, Hofmann’s ARB with Nylatron mounts, Eliseparts lightweight steering arms, rose-jointed track rod ends, OEM steering uprights and Eliseparts rose-jointed rear toe links.

In terms of safety equipment, a custom cages T45 six-point cage has been fitted and a lifeline Zero 2000 4kg electronic fire extinguisher with four nozzles and an electric solid-state cut-off switch is included. Our vendor tells us the seats and belts are in date.

Retardation relies on AP 295mm front discs with Eliseparts aluminium-belled rear discs (floating), and rota slipstream alloys were fitted along with an alloy Eliseparts radiator, quick-fill fuel pipe and quick-release fuel cap.

The car, in general, is reported to weigh around 718kg with 10 litres of fuel. In July 2015, in the hands of a novice, the car was first in class and 3rd overall in CSCC New Millennium at Rockingham Motor Speedway. It has been regularly maintained by DMD Motorsports and CAD Motorsport Engine Developments provided our vendor with a printout of the Dyno results which show 181bhp with 140lb/ft of torque. Our vendor tells us that the parts alone to build this car would be in excess of 21K, so what a great opportunity to acquire a fast entry-level racer at a competitive guide price.

For the engine and drive train, the bottom end is based on 19k mile TF160 engine, MS2 head with VVC hydraulic followers, PTP stainless valves (VHPD size), PTP valve springs, Newman PH3 cams, Piper vernier pulleys, 52mm throttle body, Janspeed 4-2-1 manifold, five-inch silenced cat pipe, Eliseparts lightweight silencer and flywheel. Race TF clutch plate and cover, B4BP gearbox (four races since rebuild) with type B Torsen LSD have been fitted along with Eliseparts motorsports gear linkage.

Julius Thurgood’s vision of assembling an entire grid of 1950s Austin A30s for the St. Mary’s Trophy at the 2016 Goodwood Revival proved to be a fantastic recipe for really close, one-make racing and proved an irresistible proposition for a number of today’s top drivers.

detail. Mike’s experience of preparing race-winning cars goes back to the late 1980s when he dominated in a production saloon BMW M3, and since those days he has built, prepared and driven cars in just about every series of national and international racing with phenomenal success.

His club, the ‘Historic Racing Drivers Club’, drew up a comprehensive set of rules and regulations that meant all the cars were very closely matched resulting in crowd-pleasing, truly spectacular racing with a large field of these brightly coloured little saloons battling, inches apart, all the way around Goodwood.

The brief for this particular car was very simple: go and build the best A30 in the world and then win Goodwood. All the right ingredients were there, including the driving talents of his son, Andrew, a previous British Touring Car Champion and three times winner of the Independents’ Championship.

So successful was the whole idea, that the organisers of this year’s Silverstone Classic in July are also hoping to attract a full grid of Austin A30s, and such is the interest amongst drivers at every level, that competition for places on the grid will be fierce. So what better car could you buy than the A30 that won outright at the 2016 Revival?

This is a unique opportunity to buy the very best A30 on the grid, prepared to the highest of standards, superbly painted by Normandale in Dove Grey and Cream, and fully developed by the Jordan family into an outright winner, built with no expense spared.

1973 Triumph Dolomite Sprint

Although the Triumph Dolomite range, introduced in 1972, had proved to be refined and sporty, competitors such as BMW’s 2002 had a performance advantage which was costing Triumph dearly, both in terms of sales and prestige. To remedy this, they unveiled the Dolomite Sprint in June 1973, although the launch had been delayed by a year, having been due to go on sale in 1972 alongside the main range. A team of engineers, led by Spen King, developed a 16-valve single overhead camshaft head. The capacity was increased to 1,998cc and, combined with bigger carbs, the output was upped to 127bhp. This represented a significant increase over the smaller 1850cc variant, however, it fell frustratingly short of the original target of 135bhp. As a result of this new engine, the Dolomite Sprint has a claim to be the world’s first truly mass-produced multi-valve car and the design of the cylinder head won a British Design Council Award in 1974. Performance was excellent, with 0-60 mph taking around 8.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 119 mph. We are informed that this particular Dolomite Sprint entered the 1974 Spa 24 Hours as part of a four-car team sponsored by Butch Tailors – the ‘Butch Racing Team’. Car no. 46 was driven by Claude De Wael and Etienne Staelpart and the team also ran the car that finished 5th overall, driven by the famous pairing of Tony Dron and Andy Rouse. Whilst running very well in the top ten, this particular car (chassis

2110) unfortunately failed in the 23rd hour (listed as suspension maladies but believed to be a rear axle failure). The following year, it’s believed the car was entered into the 1975 Spa 24 Hours, again as part of the Butch Racing Team entry. The car was eventually to end up in the ownership of Nelio Brunetti, along with its sister car Chassis no. 3353. Brunetti continued to use this car in European Touring Car events held mainly in Belgium and Italy. Our vendor informs us that he believes it was last raced in 1981, and chassis ‘2110’ now remains exactly as it was when it returned from its last outing, in this distinctive Black, Orange and White colour scheme with sponsorship by ‘Mach 3’ (Belgian shoemakers) and Brunetti’s name on the roof. Since then ’2110’ and sister chassis ‘3353’ have remained together for most of their lives passing through European dealers until they both ended up in the hands of Dirk Van Gorp, from whom our vendor purchased it and the car has been stored in the UK ever since. A ‘British Motor Industry Heritage Trust’ certificate accompanies the ‘Dolly’ and confirms ‘2110’ was built on 12th July 1973. The original wheels, along with various other components, are included in the sale. What an interesting project to bring this special ‘Dolly’ back to its former racing glory.

Over the course of the next few years, many famous drivers including Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Peter Arundell, Jacky Ickx, Jack Sears and Sir John Whitmore would achieve notable success driving the works Cortinas of Team Lotus. In addition to numerous victories in individual races, Jim Clark won the 1964 British Saloon Car Championship outright and Jack Sears achieved a class win the following year, however, one of the greatest successes was achieved, not in a Team Lotus works car, but in one of the Alan Mann Racing cars when, in 1965, Sir John Whitmore won the European Touring Car Championship with an incredible eight class victories and six outright wins from nine starts. This superbly presented Lotus Cortina started life in 1965 as a Ford Cortina GT and was extensively rallied in Norway and Sweden in their National Rally Championships (the car is still accompanied by some FIA paperwork from the period). When our vendor purchased the car in 2009 it had already been converted from a ‘GT’ to, effectively, a

From its inception, the Ford Cortina Lotus was designed as a quick, modern road car, however, its ‘raison d’être’ was undoubtedly motorsport. It appeared in its first race a mere nine months after its introduction in January 1963 and only a few weeks after becoming generally available, announcing its arrival by taking 3rd and 4th place at the Oulton Park Gold Cup meeting in September of that year. Whilst based on a production two-door Ford body shell, Lotus Cortinas were far from standard and featured uprated engines, brakes, suspension and lightened bodies. Other visible exterior changes included the factory colour scheme of Ermine White with a Sherwood Green stripe and the fitting of front quarter bumpers and discreet Lotus badges.

full Lotus Cortina, however, as the car was to join his three-car ‘Lotus Cortina Team’ competing at circuits in Denmark and Sweden, a full rebuild to FIA spec as a circuit racer was undertaken with the intention of being a front-runner in U2TC. During the winter of 2009/10, the car was taken down to a bare shell, the alloy bonnet and doors refurbished, and then superbly finished in the very smart team colours of Venetian Red with a Silver stripe. The engine was rebuilt by respected Swedish tuner Roger Svensson as was the Quaife close-ratio gearbox with its alloy bell housing. Power is fed through a Salisbury limited-slip differential with a 4.44 CWP. Suspension is by Leda adjustables all round and the car sits on Parnasport wheels with a further four lightweight wheels included in the package. All the glass, apart from the windscreen, has been replaced with ‘Lexan’ polycarbonate in order to save a couple of kilos. A transponder is fitted and in-car lap times are displayed on an AMB TnetX 2G display. No expense appears to have been spared in the build and preparation of this fabulous sixties racer and our vendor believes he has spent around £90,000 bringing the car up to this level. It has its Danish National Registration documents and, by the time of the sale, will be in possession of an FIA Historic Technical Passport. At this guide, with Lotus Cortina prices continuing to climb, this well-presented and on-the-button mid-sixties’ ‘Touring Car’ looks tremendous value and could be a competitive entry in a number of British and European championships.

The Ford Escort Mk1 was introduced in 1967 and was a commercial success in many parts of Western Europe, and remarkably, in the UK it was the bestselling car during the whole of the 1960s. In June 1974, less than six years after the car’s UK introduction, Ford announced the completion of the ‘Two Millionth’ Ford Escort, a milestone unmatched by any Ford model outside the USA. The Escort used a brand new unitary construction bodyshell and came with a choice of 1098cc or 1298cc four-cylinder, overhead valve engines. It also featured contemporary styling cues in tune with its time: a subtle Detroit-inspired “Coke bottle” waistline and the “dogbone” shaped front grille – arguably the car’s most famous styling feature. The Escort became very successful as a rally car and eventually went on to become one of the most successful rally cars of all time. The Ford works team was practically unbeatable in the late 1960s / early 1970s and, arguably, the Escort’s greatest victory was in the 1970 London to Mexico World Cup Rally being driven by Finnish legend Hannu Mikkola. This Ford Escort Mk1 1300 was built into a lightened sprint/trackfocused car approximately six years ago with 95% new parts. Lift the bonnet and you will find an all-steel 1300 Crossflow engine with dry-sump mated to a four-speed dog box and an alloy differential

housing. There is a tension strut brace across the front and a rear rose jointed anti-rollbar. Suspension is provided by adjustable Bilstein shock absorbers all round, and the braking is assisted by AP front calipers and an adjustable bias pedal box. A Safety Devices front and rear roll cage keep occupants safe, along with Sparco bucket seats. We recommend that potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality and currency of all the safety equipment in this car, i.e. seats, harnesses and fire extinguishers. This car will arrive at the sale with a NOVA reference number allowing potential buyers to go on and register the car with the DVLA to obtain a UK V5c. Since completion, this Escort has been lightly used having only competed in two sprints in Ireland, and therefore represents a fantastic route into either continuing with sprints or circuit racing. Or perhaps, with the appropriate modifications it could be used as a rally car, where Escorts are synonymous with success.

Introduced in 1966, the Camaro was offered in two-door form with both coupé and convertible body styles to choose from, as well as a range of different engine sizes, and trim and styling packages. Top of the pile at Chevrolet was the macho Z28 powered by a rumbling 302in3, 5.0-litre small-block V8 and this was their chosen contender for the battles that lay ahead. Whilst salesmen in car dealerships across the States fought it out for units sold, Chevrolet decided that it wanted to take the fight to Ford on the race tracks of America and prepared cars that complied with the ‘Group 2’ regulations drafted for the Sports Car Club of America TransAmerican Series allowing cars with up to 5.7-litre engines to compete. Famous Camaro drivers included Mark Donohue, ex-F1 pilot Ronny Bucknum and Jerry Thompson. It was Donohue though, who took the spoils in the 1968 and ‘69 seasons driving a Penske-prepared Camaro with utter domination in the Trans-Am series. It wasn’t long before European teams and drivers spotted the successes of their American counterparts and these cars soon appeared at race circuits across Europe. We are pleased to offer this particular historically important Chevrolet Camaro which was run and prepared by Bill Shaw Racing for the 1970 British Saloon Car Championship season, with former champion Roy Pierpoint at the wheel. Martin Thomas went on to campaign the car successfully for the 1971 - 1973 seasons, taking in rounds of the European Touring Car Championship as well as a busy season in the UK, with sponsorship provided by ICI ‘Flame Out’ fire extinguishers and Ovaltine and the Camaro in a distinctive white and orange livery. A full season in 1971 was rewarded with a victory and fine podiums at the International European Meeting at Magny-Cours, Moorlands Trophy British GP Support Race at Silverstone, and the Yellow Pages meeting at Thruxton. One of the highlights that particular year came in the Iberia Trophy Race at the South London circuit of Crystal Palace,

As the 1960s roared on, so too did the introduction of a new generation of powerful, big block V8 saloon cars in the United States that came to be known as ‘Muscle Cars’. Ford claimed ‘bragging rights’ with its dramatic new Mustang, destined to become one of the all-time greats, whilst other ‘Motor City’ favourites included the Dodge Charger, Pontiac GTO, Plymouth Barracuda and the Chevrolet Camaro.

where Mike Crabtree in a Ford Escort, Gerry Marshall in his Vauxhall Viva and Martin Thomas in this Camaro fought a furious race-long battle, pushing each other to the limits. This moment has since been immortalised in the BBC’s ‘100 Greatest Sporting Moments’ with heightened excitement coming from Murray Walker’s commentary! At the end of the 1973 season, Martin Thomas switched to the second generation Camaro and his, slightly battle-worn, steed was allowed to rest on its laurels for a few years. However, in the early 1990s, Martin decided to rebuild the car and get it back out on circuit again, running a 5.0-litre V8 engine mated to a four-speed close-ratio Muncie ‘rockcrusher’ gearbox and painting the car in a blue livery. Remaining in his possession until 2004, the car was then sold directly to our vendor who has since successfully competed in Heritage Grand Touring Cars, Aston Martin Owners Club, Masters, and Classic Sports Car Club events as well as a number of demonstrations including: the 50th Anniversary of the BTCC at Silverstone, an appearance on BBC’s Top Gear 50th Anniversary of Touring Cars with Richard Hammond and ‘The Stig’ at the Wheel and the reunion at Crystal Palace in 2014 when the famous 1971 race was celebrated with Mike Crabtree back behind the wheel of his John Willment Ford Escort and Martin Thomas demonstrating this car, the trusty blue Camaro. Supplied with a pair of steel doors, old FIA papers, magazines and a wonderful history file, this Camaro is the perfect candidate for ‘Blue Riband’ events like the Gerry Marshall Trophy at the Goodwood Members Meeting or perhaps the HSCC Historic Touring Car Championship. We recommend that potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality and currency of all the safety equipment in this car, i.e. seat, harnesses and fire extinguishers. This cracking Camaro has the stance and presence of a serious racing car and rarely do competition cars with this history and provenance come to market. It would be welcomed by organisers anywhere and fondly remembered by the millions who have watched the black and white footage from Crystal Palace. We urge you to come and look at this Camaro with your own eyes.

Reynard Motorsport was founded by Adrian Reynard in 1973 as Sabre Automotive Ltd, building its name in lower formulae racing series and at one time became the world’s largest racing car manufacturer. Initially based at Bicester and latterly at Reynard Park, near Brackley, the company built successful cars in Formula Ford 1600, Formula Ford 2000, Formula Vauxhall Lotus, Formula Three, Formula 3000, Indy Car, and even had a brief dalliance with Formula 1. Their chassis were known for their giant killing abilities and this, with the help of their talented Commercial Director, Rick Gorne, translated into a number of successful business opportunities for the company in the racing car world. They even designed carbon seats for Virgin Atlantic. The Formula Vauxhall Lotus single-seater racing car was developed by Reynard for a number of years after the demise of Formula Ford 2000 in the late 1980s. The cars boasted a 2.0-litre Vauxhall engine

This Reynard single-seater has enjoyed a varied career and has been run by former owners on a number of occasions at the legendary Spa and Silverstone Grand Prix circuits. Benefitting from many thousands of pounds in investment over the years, this car is eligible for series such as the Monoposto Car Club Championship and would make an incredible track day weapon. This actual car was a class winner in the Monoposto series in 2013 and ran successfully at the Spa Classic in July 2014. Included in the sale are an additional set of wheels fitted with slick tyres and a number of other spares are available by separate negotiation. This example represents a superb opportunity for developing any young talent looking to move up from karting or Formula Ford to more serious single-seaters, or simply to carry on racing in Monoposto, one of the friendliest and most helpful clubs in motor racing.

1996 Honda Accord Super Tourer

Bid via the Internet on lot 110

“Super Touring” was a motor racing formula for saloon cars defined by the FIA in 1993 and was broadly based on the 2.0-litre Touring Car regulations from the 1990 British Touring Car Championship. The FIA organised a World Cup from 1993-1995 and the term ‘Super Tourer’ was adopted from 1995. ‘Super Touring’ replaced ‘Group A’ as the pinnacle of saloon car championships around the world, but as the manufacturer’s ‘Works’ teams gradually withdrew, the category sadly ended in 2000.

onwards, the car has appeared in various races in the ever-popular and fast-growing Super Touring Series, part of the HSCC package. Two wins at Thruxton in the 2013 season were recorded as well as a win at the 2015 Donington Park race. More recently the Car was raced at the Knockhill round of the 2016 Super Touring car Championship by touring car legend, Gabriele Tarquini, and he demonstrated that he had lost none of his famous car control by taking two outright wins in a very competitive field.

It is believed that the late, great David Leslie drove this Honda Accord Supertourer throughout the 1996 British Touring Car Championship season. David had a strong season with the car finishing fourth overall in the Driver’s Championship and he enjoyed three outright wins in a very competitive year, with the most notable coming at the British Grand Prix support race. Following that season, we understand the car won the 1997 Moscow Open Championship and came back to race in UK club championships in the early 2000s.

This car is presented exactly as it finished the last race of the 2016 season as the overall winner. If driving a proper Touring Car is on your ‘bucket list’, then this is a superb opportunity to buy a race-winning car that will give you instant access to one of the most exciting series in the UK historic racing car calendar. Included with the car is a comprehensive spares package and running and setup info, all of which is too long to list here, and interested parties should get in touch to get a full list of what’s available.

During the mid-1980s the tenacious little Renault 5 GT Turbo was utilised for racing with great effect, competing in the Renaultsupported ‘Renault 5 Elf Turbo UK Cup’ championship until 1990/91. The car presented here has been known to Renault motorsport specialist Mark Fish for a long time and back in 2000/2001 they meticulously built the car to go racing. The build utilised a clean donor 1987 shell with all the correct modifications and many genuine parts to make it competitive, however, its only race outing was in the Renault 5 Anniversary Race at Thruxton in 2004, where it qualified on pole position and finished second. Since 2004, Mark Fish Motorsport have looked after the car for a customer who used it for track-days. At this time the car was bright red and in 2009 was the subject of a magazine article in ‘Performance French Cars’ (see photos). Some years later, the owner saw some photographs of the ‘Harlow Sheet Metal’ sponsored cars that Mark Fish raced so successfully in the Renault 5 Elf Turbo UK Cup championship and decided he would really like a replica. He commissioned Mark Fish to do a full nut and bolt rebuild and faithfully recreate the car that would have run in the official manufacturer-supported races. The car was built to the regulations

of the Cup, with performance in line with Renault’s specifications for the championship, being completed in 2014. Since then, the car has only been used once and is presented to very high standard, both mechanically and cosmetically. The car in its current guise uses many original parts from the period, with the engine benefiting from a raft of new components It is a fully rebuilt, blueprinted unit producing 150bhp at the flywheel, with 14.5PSI boost, a separate 13-row strapped inter-cooler and a competition air-filter. Like the race cars, there is also a baffled sump, uprated engine mountings, an oil cooler and thermostat. The suspension setup uses Koni Sport adjustable dampers. The exhaust system is straight-through with side exits whilst the race-spec brakes benefit from front bumper ducts. The car sits on original steel wheels specified for the Cup championship and is complete with a full spare set (10 original wheels – 6 x Michelin slicks & 4 x Dunlop wets) What with Mark Fish’s long association with this car and his wealth of Renault knowledge – during the 1990s his team won seven Renault 5 championships in a row – it really should inspire confidence in what is a great car offering all the flavour and excitement of an in-period racecar but at a very reasonable price.

1961 Emeryson Formula 1 Climax FPF (FIA)

It’s a glorious, late July afternoon in 1962 and the massed crowds in the stands at Aintree chatter excitedly in anticipation just prior to the start of the British Grand Prix. You are sat in the new ‘works’ Emeryson F1 (Chassis 1004) and in qualifying the car has gone well with the 1500cc Climax FPF running sweetly. The four-cylinder was never going to be a match for the V8 cars, however, Innes has qualified a remarkable third and a top ten finish might just be on. The man with the ‘5-Minute’ board strides self-consciously back and forth across the front row with the board high above his head, and not for the first time in the last few minutes, you tighten your shoulder straps just a tad. The early afternoon sun glints off the first few rows of cars and you can clearly see Jim Clark’s distinctive helmet in the Lotus 25 on pole with Surtees’ Lola not far away in second. Innes Ireland makes up the front row in his four-cylinder Lotus 24, well aware that the fast-starting Bruce McClaren in his Cooper and Graham Hill in the powerful BRM P57 are only a few feet behind. At the 3-minute board, Dan Gurney and Jo Bonnier start their Porsches almost in unison and Richie Ginther’s BRM immediately follows suit. Just in front of you the wily Jack Brabham buttons his Lotus into life and gives a ‘thumbs up’ to Roy Salvadori in the Lola whilst Phil Hill’s pretty 156 Ferrari seems reluctant to cooperate, but eventually concedes with a calico-tearing rasp and a waft of fragrant Castrol ‘R’. Fast forward 55 years to Goodwood in September and it really could be you sitting in 1004 on the Glover Trophy grid at this year’s Revival, and, amazingly, surrounded by a number of other cars that shared the ‘62 season. The Emeryson qualifies for the Glover Trophy (1.5-litre Formula 1 cars raced between 1961 and 1965) and, as a result of its rarity (it’s the last surviving example), its standard of preparation and its crowdpleasing, sunshine yellow paint finish, has regularly been invited by Lord March to take part in this prestigious race for Grand Prix cars. Paul Emery was a racing driver and creator of a number of frontwheel drive Formula 2 and 3 cars in the early fifties, all campaigned under the name of ‘Emeryson’ and latterly with lots of help and some necessary funding from former Cooper Works driver, Alan Mann, the Emeryson marque went on to become an established constructor of F2 cars. The 1961 season saw the latest development by Paul as the all

new Emeryson-Climax F1 car was introduced to the world of Formula 1 and the car was much admired for its styling and engineering standards. The Belgian race team, ‘Ecurie Nationale Belge’, were particularly interested and ordered three Maserati-engined cars for the 1961 season to be piloted by Lucien Bianchi, André Pilette, and Willy Mairesse and all were painted in the national racing colour of bright yellow. Sadly a combination of bad luck and some high-speed accidents meant that it wasn’t long before all three cars were ‘hors de combat’ however Bianchi managed a 4th at the Brussels Grand Prix and Mairesse an 11th in Syracuse in April. Subsequently, they changed to Lotus 18s and the Emeryson cars were offered for sale. The persuasive Tony Settember talked his American compatriot, Hugh Powell into funding a ‘works’ Emeryson team with the cars restored to original, running Coventry-Climax engines. This duly happened and Chassis 1004 was to enjoy some success in late 1961 and ‘62.

only surviving F1 Emeryson and even this car might not have made it, had it not been for the efforts of car restorer and showroom owner, Peter Morley who bought it in 1992 and returned it to the way it would have been when driven by Settember and Campbell-Jones in its heyday. When fully finished it was entered at the first Goodwood Circuit Revival in 1998 driven by Paul Osborn.

With Lotus 24s and 25s, Lolas and BRMs changing hands at between £300,000 and £400,000, this competitive 1962 Grand Prix car seems an attractive way into a very exclusive club.

Our vendor purchased 1004 in 1999 and fettled it to his taste. In his first outing after purchasing the car, and carrying the number 31 as used by Jack Fairman in 1961, he was delighted to finish four places behind Sir Stirling Moss’ Maserati at the 2000 Monaco Grand Prix Historique. Over the following 16 seasons, he has raced the car extensively with the HSCC, enjoying a number of class wins, and the HGPCA at Goodwood, Donington, Silverstone and on the Continent and has been lucky enough to take part in seven of the last eight Monaco Historique. Now in his eighty-first year, he has decided to hang up his helmet and pursue his other great passion, skiing! (I kid you not). As can be seen from the photographs the car is in excellent condition and has a current FIA Historic Technical Passport and Vehicle Identity (21877). The engine is a 1500cc, 4-cylinder, Coventry-Climax FPF mated to a Hewland Mk6 and we understand that both were performing perfectly on the car’s last outing. The cockpit appears a bit more commodious than other cars from the same period, which is a distinct advantage if you are no longer the size of a National Hunt jockey. Our vendor is naturally keen to meet the new owner and run through the spares package, gear ratios, safety equipment dates etc. This lovely little car is a piece of Grand Prix History and presumably will continue to be invited to all the best places, presenting the lucky new owner with a couple of super options. Either to drive the car themselves and live the dream of racing a Grand Prix car from such an exciting era at Monaco and Goodwood, or to enter the car for one of today’s talented young Historic Racers and fully enjoy the glitz and glamour on offer to entrants at the world’s most prestigious motor racing venues.

The Ford Sierra RS Cosworth was launched at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show and was the first Ford to wear the ‘Cosworth’ badge. Only 5,545 were built in order to homologate the car for ‘Group A’ Touring Car racing and were based on the three-door Sierra bodyshell but fitted with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine of now legendary repute. This power unit featured a double overhead camshaft opening 16 valves, and was force fed through a Garret T3 turbo and intercooler, giving a reliable 204bhp, which resulted in a top speed of 150mph and a 0-60 time of just 6.8 seconds! The purposeful-looking Sierra RS Cosworth on offer here has been built with circuit use in mind. The shell has never been fitted with a sunroof and has been subject to a full strip, restoration and re-spray. It’s fitted with an aluminium, multi-point roll cage, a biased pedal box, and the brake lines, fuel pipes, and new ‘Motorsport’ wiring loom are braided and run within the car. The dashboard is bespoke and carries a number of auxiliary gauges and a pair of competition seats (along with full harnesses) have been fitted. The car has been set-up on ‘Gaz’ coil-over suspension all around and the rear beam and trailing arms have been powder coated satin black. The brakes have been refurbished and built for competition use, and the car sits on Gold magnesium 7x15-inch wheels.

The engine is a Dave Brooks-built ‘GP A’ unit with a ‘200’ cylinder block, lightened and balanced crank and rods, Mahle pistons and BD 14 camshafts, and has covered around 500 miles since new. Fuel is force-fed with the aid of the T3 turbo and the sparks are provided by a Group A coil and leads. The car has a heavy-duty AP clutch and the gearbox and diff have only covered around 500 miles since their respective rebuilds. The engine is described by the vendor as being in “excellent running order” and the Dave Brooks Engineering engine build sheet is with the car. There is a twin side-exit exhaust fitted and an uprated fuel pump. The Diamond White paintwork is described as being in “very good condition” and the coachwork as “in good condition with minor scrapes and scuffs”. This is a well prepared Cosworth that would make an excellent trackday car or could be developed further for sprints and hill climbs or turned into a full race car for circuit racing.

The Westfield XTR2 (extreme track and road) is an ultra lightweight, two-seater sports car manufactured by Westfield Sportscars Limited, of Kingswinford in the West Midlands. The essence of the car is a lightweight steel tubular spaceframe enclosing a 170bhp, 1299cc Suzuki Hayabusa four-cylinder motorcycle engine, mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox. These are very focused little cars where the emphasis is squarely on performance and handling. However, it lacks a windscreen, side doors, roof, and is virtually devoid of interior luxury and, as a result of this simplicity, the car only weighs between 410-440 kilos, depending on configuration. The very high power-to-weight ratio and the ‘toppy’ power curve of the high-revving Suzuki mean that these cars are realistically happiest on a circuit, however, they are still legal for road use (at least in the UK). The Westfield XTR2 fits well into the ‘Bike Engined Class’ and has become very popular at track days, hill climbs and sprints.

was painstakingly assembled by a fully qualified engineer in liaison with the Westfield factory in 2009 and incorporates a stiffer chassis and suspension (again in conjunction with the factory) to produce the ultimate specification, but remains in standard engine trim (190bhp) for strength and reliability. The clutch and drive chain have also been uprated, as have the brakes and dampers. It’s fitted with a twin-element rear wing that can be adjusted accordingly to suit individual circuits, and also has the option of running with two, or a single seat, which greatly reduces weight again. The car runs a Stack rev-counter with sequential shift indicator along with a digital gear display on a carbon dash, recent new Avon ZZR (road legal) tyres and has just been treated to fresh fluids. All paperwork and invoices along with build photos, wiring diagrams, and setup sheets will accompany the car, which has completed less than 3hrs of total running time since it was built and looks to be in fabulous condition. As usual with a competition car, it is advisable to check all the racerelated safety equipment for legality and date. This Brilliant Orange Westfield is a confection of carbon, steel and alloy, and looks good enough to hang on the kitchen wall, but with 0-60 in 3.2 seconds, 155mph, quicker than an Atom and half the price, I don’t think that’s what I’d be doing with it.

The MGB has been gracing British motor racing circuits for over 50 years and is surely one of the most instantly recognisable and accessible racing cars in the historic world. This competitive MGB full-race car is accompanied by a specification list running to three full pages, detailing the car’s upgrades and race modifications. It’s obviously too long to list here, but please feel free to contact the office for further details. The car was originally raced by Alan Mills in the 1990s, before being sold to Brian Lambert in 1994 who painted the car in its current livery of Old English White with a Black hardtop. In 1996, Brian won the Flemings Thoroughbred Sportscar Championship but was sadly pipped to first place by Roy McCarthy in the BCV8 Championship that year by half a point. The MG was then stored for a number of years, and in 2005 was bought by Ian Prior who commissioned BLC Engineering to build a new full-race engine for the coming season. Bob Luff of BLC Engineering recalls that this was one of the best ‘B’ series engines they ever built, producing a healthy 200bhp. The engine spec sheet is quite lengthy, but the highlights include; 1950cc, 200bhp, Bob Luff head, ‘works’ steel crank, ‘Arrow’ steel con-rods,’Acrilite’ pistons, Kent 712SP camshaft, Kent roller-rockers, lightweight Kent cam-followers, Davies Craig electronic water pump, Piper Vernier pulleys, lightened and polished pushrods, an aluminium back plate, a full-race lightweight flywheel, full race ‘quartermaster’ clutch, custom exhaust manifold, and split Dellorto 48s. The car was fitted with Spax adjustable dampers and custom machined Nylatron bushes at the same time.

The car was sold in 2012 and has since been used sparingly at a few track and test days, including two BCV8 events last year, one of which was at Silverstone. At Brands Hatch, driven by a novice racer, this able MGB still managed to finish 2nd in class. The current owner has fitted new in-date seat belts and a fire extinguisher. Also included with the car are 4 x spare ‘Minilite’ wheels shod with wet weather tyres and an additional spare matching ‘Compomotive’ wheel with a new dry tyre. This car is eligible for numerous race categories including the MGCC’s BCV8 Championship, Cockshoot Cup, Peter Best Insurance Challenge, and Thoroughbred Sportscar Championship. The regulations for these series vary slightly but not substantially. KYR 294 is a well-prepared and established MGB racer and a great way into club racing. It has been a front runner in the past and could well be again in the future.

Ian Prior sold the car to Tom Jones midway through the 2006 season and he used it to good effect the following year, winning the 2007 ‘BCV8 Championship’ and in fact, the car still holds a couple of lap records. In 2011 Tom entrusted the car to his own company, TJ Engineering, to give the MG a complete nut and bolt rebuild and prepare it for the following season.

Performance figures for the RS2600 were very impressive in period with 2,637cc producing 150bhp at 5,800rpm, sufficient to propel the rangetopping Capri from 0-62mph in 8.6secs and on to a top speed of 124mph.

Norris is best known to us here for his determined efforts mixing his ‘Class B’ Alfa GTV with the ‘ Class A Capris’ to great effect and managing to win the 1983 Uniroyal Production Saloon Car Championship in the process. It has been modified for racing purposes but the lack of a history file does not allow us to establish when this took place. In fact, all the paperwork confirms, is that the car returned to Germany in 1984 and was then sold to a UK resident in 1990.

UK saloon racing in the 1960s was epitomised by the battles between the American V8s and the British Lotus Ford Cortinas and Austin Coopers of the day. They were driven in the British Saloon Car Championship (pre-BTCC) by Grand-Prix stars of the day such as Jim Clark, Jack Brabham and Graham Hill, as well as saloon car specialists like Frank Gardener, Brian Muir, Sir Gawaine Bailie, Roy Pierpoint and Jack Sears. It was an exciting and evocative period of racing and the crowds enjoyed the closeness of the racing brought about by the contrasting abilities of the nimble Cortinas and Minis and the straight line speed of the V8s.

Its last outing was at the Spa Six Hours in 2014 and the car has not completed any racing since, but it was driven by Bruno Senna for ITV’s episode 4 of ‘The Classic Car Show’ in 2015. This car is supplied with a UK V5C and current FIA HTP papers valid until 2024. This iconic car is eligible for many historic championship events such as the FIA Pre-66 GT Championship, the Masters Series or the fantastic Spa 6-Hours. The fact that it’s road registered opens up the possibility of using this dramatic car for tours and road rallies and, at this attractive guide price, could be your route into historic motorsport.

This particular example is a 1965 Ford Mustang ‘Notchback’ that has been purpose-built to ‘Appendix K’ FIA specification for Period F - 1962 to 1965 Competition Touring cars. This car is fitted with a 289ci (4.7-litre) V8 engine, mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox with a Hurst shifter. Open the driver’s door and you are greeted with a Cobra Imola Pro bucket seat, Titon race harnesses, Dynamat flooring and a Lifeline fire system. Potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality, currency and date of all the safety equipment in this car.

1989 Aston Martin AMR1 ‘Group C’

Prior to Aston Martin’s most recent campaign in World GT racing with the DBR9s in 2005, it was 1989 when the bespoke British manufacturer last had a factory team competing in International motorsport. The AMR1 ran its first race in that year’s World SportsPrototype Championship for Group ‘C’ machines and benefited from the company’s earlier experiences with its superb V8, which had previously powered the Nimrod, and later the EMKA and Cheetah-Aston Martins, in the early and middle years of the Group C formula. With fuel limited to 100 litres, force-fed cars could only run high boost in qualifying when consumption was not an issue. Former Aston dealer Robin Hamilton saw the potential such rules would provide for Tadek Marek’s all-alloy V8, which he had already run in a modified DBS V8 at Le Mans in 1977 and 1979. Hamilton’s Nimrod project, using a flat-bottomed Lola monocoque as its base, was bolstered by the financial input of Aston owner Peter Livanos and then new Aston Martin Lagonda chairman, Victor Gauntlett, whose Pace Petroleum concern held a 50% stake in AML. This triumvirate formed Nimrod Racing Automobiles with Aston Martin Tickford preparing engines for what was realistically a semi-works operation. When, however, late regulation changes reduced minimum weight from 1,000kg to 800kg and permitted ground-effect aero, the Nimrod was effectively outdated before its first race, and Livanos pulled out in January 1982. Ultimately, it was the privately-run Nimrod of Lord Downe, the Aston Martin Owners Club’s late former President, that outshone the NRA entries, securing a memorable seventh place at Le Mans in 1982 and third overall in the WEC. That was about as good as it got and after the dreadful double crash of the two Downe machines at Le Mans in 1984, Nimrods, bar a few IMSA races in America the following year, ran no more. The EMKA and Cheetah cars competed for a little longer, completing their final races In 1985. Importantly, though, Aston’s V8 had demonstrated its potential to be competitive in endurance racing. Penned by Canadian Max Boxstrom, the AMR1 sported a carbon/ kevlar central tub but with a wide aerofoil under the nose, which created ground-effect at the front of the car making it, at that point,

unique amongst Group ‘C’ machines. Also radical was the car’s truncated rear with a very wide underbody venturi, necessitating the engine and in-house transaxle to be mounted at a notably inclined angle, this having the added benefit of placing most of the transaxle’s height forward of the rear axle line. As for the V8, it would benefit from four valves per cylinder using the latest version of the engine developed for the Virage road car, which would be launched in October 1988. Redesign of the production engine had been entrusted to American Reeves Calloway, and it was natural that development of the 6.0-litre racing unit should continue in his hands. After a testing crash prevented AMR1 from racing at the WS-PC’s opening 1989 round at Suzuka, chassis AMR1/01 made its debut at Dijon-Prenois in May. Unfortunately, limited testing resulted in a suspension setup totally unsuited for the track and a lowly 17th position for Brian Redman and David Leslie. Two cars were entered for Le Mans to be crewed by Ray Mallock/ David Leslie/David Sears (AMR1/03) and Redman/Michael Roe/ Costas Los (AMR1/01). 03 retired with engine failure in the eleventh hour but AMR1/01 finished a commendable 11th in only its second race after a lengthy, unscheduled pit stop. It had though, become clear that the car’s design created too much downforce and excessive drag, limiting the Aston’s potential top speed by some 20mph. Indeed, down the Mulsanne Straight the AMR1s had been 1mph slower than the EMKA-Aston in 1985, but the later cars had the edge in terms of braking and cornering. AMR1/04 was finished in time for Brands Hatch and was lighter with extensive suspension improvements. The result was a fine 4th place for Redman/Leslie, albeit assisted by a high rate of attrition, but clearly, AMR1 had the potential to run in the top six, beating the debutant turbocharged Jaguar XJR-11 in the process. It also marked the first race appearance in Britain of a factory Aston for 25 years. At the Nürburgring, the lack of top speed again told, and with the same driver duo AMR1/04 took a solid 8th place. The best result would follow at Donington Park when Leslie/Roe came home 6th in

AMR1/04 and Redman/Sears 7th in another new chassis, AMR1/05 (the lightest yet) an impressive and genuine result without the aid of a high retirement rate as at Brands. On to Spa-Francorchamps and Redman, sharing AMR1/05 with Stanley Dickens, finished 7th while Leslie/Roe in AMR1/04 suffered engine failure. Alas, the final round in Mexico City would be the final race for the Aston. Chassis AMR1/05, now with a 6.3-litre, ‘Version Two’ engine producing 740bhp, finished 8th driven by Leslie/Roe, and in so doing secured 6th place overall for the team in the championship despite missing two races. Although a revised AMR2 model with improved aerodynamics was on the drawing board and would later undergo testing, the Le Mans dream came to an abrupt end. Quite simply, parent company Ford did not want Aston Martin competing head-to-head against Jaguar, its other prestige brand.

managed by Ray Mallock, the thundering Aston setting the fastest lap. 2004 saw AMR1/05 net two thirds at Silverstone, driven respectively by the owner and Bob Berridge. In 2005 both AMR1/04 and AMR1/05 competed in historic Group C/IMSA events in America with Bob Berridge and our vendor at the wheel. After years of sterling service in Group C racing the current owner stepped back in 2013 and gave the controls to GT3 winner Andy Meyrick who put AMR1/05 on the front row of the grid at Donington in May 2013. After a phenomenal first lap, Andy emerged onto the pit straight significantly in the lead a position he fought and wrestled to hold on to until he took the flag for the marque’s first ever win on UK soil.

Happily, historic Group ‘C’ racing in Europe and IMSA events in America continue to provide the stirring sight of these fabulous machines in full flight. An ever-popular spectacle, these evocative endurance sportscars draw appreciative crowds wherever they appear and since 2000, European grids have increased dramatically with Jaguar, Porsche, Spice, Argo, Lancia, Tiga, March and Nissan all represented.

In its next outing in 2014, our vendor put his Aston GT3 co-driver, Le Mans P2 winner Tom Kimber-Smith, behind the wheel at the Le Mans 24hr support race. In front of a crowd in excess of 100,000, Tom placed the car 5th in qualifying and started the first lap in determined style. In no time 05 was up to 2nd and Tom held that position to the flag. The aero and braking dynamics of the AMR1 shone again as this was an amazing result for a normally aspirated Group C car on an acknowledged ‘power circuit’ where the turbo cars should have walked away with the honours.

Since 2001, chassis AMR1/05, fitted with a 6.0 rather than 6.3-litre engine, has been putting up some fine performances, in the hands of, initially, David Leslie and the current owner. On the car’s historic race debut at Silverstone, they finished a creditable 9th, and the combination has since gone from strength to strength. David Leslie displayed his rapid pace in the Aston at a couple of two-driver races in 2002, notably at Snetterton where he chased victor Win Percy’s Jaguar XJR-11 all the way to the flag.

Most recently, in October 2016, French sportscar legend Nick Minassian drove AMR1/05, prepared and run by Group C specialists John Danby Racing, to a superb outright victory at Paul Ricard. This car represents a major piece of motor racing heritage with unquestionable provenance, superb build quality, and with a proven ability to win, as demonstrated in its recent two outings.

The model’s first-ever international victory followed at Monza in 2003, most aptly with David Leslie at the wheel and with the team

In the 1960s, with the introduction of the 105 series, Alfa Romeo took ‘Touring Car’ racing by storm winning the European Touring Car Championship in 1966, 1967 and 1968. The later Alfa Romeo GTAm won further ETCC titles in 1970 and 1971. This well-prepared early Giulia Sprint GT historic race car was first modified for circuit racing in Denmark in 2001. Built from a genuine early ‘Scalino’ (step-front), RHD car imported from South Africa. Prepared to FIA Appendix ‘K’ specification, the car has been constantly developed and regularly maintained throughout its life. It’s powered by a 1600cc Milan-manufactured ‘Nord’ engine, built by Alfa Romeo engine guru Jim Evans, which, we understand, produced a dyno reading of 157bhp at the flywheel. This power is transferred to the track through a 5-speed, close ratio gearbox, and a limited slip differential. The car is fitted with a ‘Safety Devices’ roll cage, a long-range, FIA approved, foam-filled fuel cell, and obviously the appropriate seat, harness, extinguisher system and electrical cut-offs to comply with

the regulations. As always, with a competition car that has not been used recently, it’s best to check the currency of those items that are dated. Our vendor has enjoyed lots of success with this car including outings at the Spa Six Hours and finishing 9th overall in U2TC. However, other commitments have meant that the car has seen little use in recent years. Presented with a comprehensive portfolio of the car’s race preparation, listing parts and labour and including photos of the work carried out, and complete with FIA HTP and HSCC papers, the car is eligible for a wide variety of UK and International FIA events including U2TC, CTCRC, HSCC, CSCC (Swinging Sixties & Classic K Series). Everyone loves a 105 Alfa, none more so than this stylish Giulia Sprint with the purposeful looks of a GTAM. A fantastic little Alfa racer that could be a lot of fun and provides an affordable way on to some of Europe’s most desirable grids.

Over the next few years the tough and reliable Rapier would acquit itself well as a competition car, and in addition to the Series III’s success as a front-line rally car for the Rootes Group Competition Department, it achieved many class and some overall wins at ‘Club’ level, particularly at short circuits and sprints. The delightful Duck-egg Blue and Royal Blue Rapier presented here was originally a rally car, having won The Rally of the Tests in 2004 and placing 2nd in 2002 driven/navigated by Robin Eyre-Maunsell & Peter Scott. It was then acquired via Julius Thurgood and raced in early HRDC and U2TC events. During the spring of 2012 it was prepared by Chris Snowdon Racing for the well-known Sussex Solicitor, Harry Sherrard after he received an invitation to race in the St Mary’s Trophy races at the Goodwood Revival Meeting in 2012. CSR completed a full bare-metal rebuild of the shell, carried out a comprehensive overhaul, developed the suspension, installed a roll cage, and lightened the car where possible. The engine has been fully rebuilt and developed by Dave Wells’ S.H. Engineering, whilst

the gearbox is close-ratio with a ‘Supaclutch’ and a light flywheel done by Allgears. The suspension has been specifically developed by ‘Cornering Force’ and includes many ingenious ideas and strengthened components. The St Mary’s Trophy is a two-race, two-driver Pro-Am and Harry Sherrard was lucky enough to secure, as a co-driver, the former Formula 1, IndyCar and Le Mans star Derek Daly who made a return to racing for the first time in many years. It was an evocative visit to Goodwood for the 59-year-old, US domiciled Irishman, who after a stellar career in the junior formulae, had his first test in a Formula 1 car at the famous Sussex circuit. The pair performed credibly, considering their lack of practice, with Daly finishing 12th in Race 1 and Sherrard bringing the car home in 16th on the Sunday with an overall result of an excellent 12th behind some serious ‘peddlers’. Having been used little over the last few years and coming with an extensive file documenting its development, this little ‘Rootes Racer’ remains very smart and, we understand, drives well. Nicely prepared Rapiers are welcome at any motorsport gathering and this lovely car with Goodwood and Derek Daly provenance represents fantastic value for a vehicle that may offer the opportunity to compete at Europe’s most prestigious events.

The Ford Capri was a dominant force in Saloon Car racing during the early 1970s, driven by legends such as Gordon Spice, Stuart Graham and Brian Muir. Easily adapted and set up for racing, it was a popular choice for the professional and club driver alike. Naturally, in such fiercely competitive championships, there were certain ‘names’ that would come up on a regular basis when ‘winning’ was being discussed. CC Racing run by Dave Cook and Peter Clark, Neil Brown engines, and Gordon Spice became the names associated with all the necessary ingredients for success. Another name that will always be inextricably linked with racing Fords was Alan Mann who had been running a Ford factory team since 1964. The team ran cars in events as diverse as the Monte Carlo Rally, the Tour de France Automobile and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Their distinctive red and gold livery graced and became synonymous with a number of winning Fords including the GT40, Cortina, Falcon, and the Escort, and the sublime Ford F3L prototype was built and raced by Alan Mann Racing. Some of the best drivers of the period including Graham Hill, Sir Jackie Stewart, Sir John Whitmore and Frank Gardner raced for the team, which achieved substantial successes at every level in motorsport.

the Capri again ran superbly, dipping into 1minute 28 seconds, and rewarded John, this time paired with the legendary Steve Soper, with 3rd place overall. This is a very well known car and has been consistently maintained. The engine has completed three races and the gearbox was rebuilt in 2016. We understand that all safety items are still in date. Full details of the spec and build details of this competitive, race-ready car will be made available to interested parties. The popularity of the Gerry Marshall Trophy will mean that other circuits will be keen to run events on a similar basis, providing even more opportunities for these crowd-pleasing Capris to go racing. In the right hands, this is a winning car and is available for sale now.

Prior to the 2008 season, Alan Mann Racing set about building a ‘Group 1’ Capri for his son Henry Mann to contest some historic events, and a road-going Ford Capri 3.0S was sourced as a donor car. It was not a great surprise then, when given Henry’s widely acknowledged skills and the expertise available within the team when it comes to building quick Fords, that he won the 2008 Masters Championship. Ever since then, this superbly prepared Capri has consistently been the fastest Capri out there. Entered in the Gerry Marshall Trophy at the 73rd Members Meeting in 2014 for the very talented John Young and the charismatic Emanuelle Pirro, the car acquitted itself well in practice, sitting neatly on pole. Emanuelle finished an excellent 2nd in Race 1, however, a small mechanical gremlin on the grid for Race 2 meant that John Young’s drive from the pit lane to a remarkable 2nd place against bigger capacity opposition driven by serious ‘peddlers’, was one of the highlights of the meeting.

1968 Ginetta G16

The Ginetta marque, which will shortly celebrate its 60th anniversary, has consistently punched above its weight throughout three distinct periods of ownership. Founded in 1957 by the brothers Walklett - Bob, Douglas, Ivor and Trevers - the company developed from a business fabricating steel-framed agricultural buildings in rural Suffolk into a respected low-volume manufacturer of road and competition cars. Following the retirement of the Walkletts in 1989, the company was sold but failed, and was then bought by an international group of enthusiasts led by the ebullient Martin Phaff. Based in Sheffield, they produced a number of models including the G27 and G33 but times were difficult and the company was only kept afloat by the burning ambition of the directors and their emphasis on continuing to build cars suitable for UK club motorsport. In 2005 Ginetta was sold to the charismatic Lawrence Tomlinson’s thriving LNT Automotive Group and in 2007 moved to a new stateof-the-art factory near Leeds. Since then the company has become synonymous with a range of competitive GT and GT4 cars (G40, G55, and G60) and, uniquely, running three major UK championships using their own cars. This rich vein of success in modern motorsport has resulted in the marque’s early cars, particularly the G4, G12 and G16 enjoying considerable extra cachet and becoming very sought after. The brothers first collaborative effort in car construction was a prewar Wolseley Hornet-derived special (retrospectively known as the G1) which came to a premature sticky end against an immovable tree stump in their parents garden. Unbowed, Ivor and his siblings pushed on with the G2, a tube-framed ‘clubmans’ roadster designed by Trevers utilising Ford E93A parts and bearing a distinct resemblance to the Lotus 6. The brothers offered it as a sideline to their engineering business and it was a moderate success with production reaching around 100. The G3 followed fitted with a Ford 997/106E and clothed in their first attempt at a GRP body. It was a touch ungainly but not a bad effort and sold around 60. However, all was forgiven in 1961 with the arrival of the shapely G4. The old adage “If it looks right, it is right” certainly applied to the astonishingly pretty little Ginetta and, fitted initially with the unburstable 1-litre Ford 105E Anglia engine and

32

Race Retro Competition & Classic Car Sale

subsequently with a Lotus Twin-Cam, the G4 captured the imagination of the competition set and was raced with widespread success as far afield as the USA and Canada. On short circuits, it proved the match of Divas, Marcos and the nimble Elans and in the hands of the late Chris Meek would become famous for the ‘David and Goliath’ battles with much more powerful Jaguars and the occasional Ferrari. Some serious sports racing cars were to follow, starting with the midengined G12 coupé which debuted in 1966. Its spaceframe chassis was clothed in a distinctive body, the central ‘hull’ of which was bonded to the tubular structure, and looked a bit like a G4 that had spent a considerable time at the gym. Suspension was by double wishbones up front (with the ubiquitous Triumph Herald uprights), and reversed lower wishbone and top links at the rear, triangulated by radius rods. A variety of engines, from 1-litre Ford SCA Formula 2 ‘screamer’ to a rumbling V8, were fitted at various times but all drove through Hewland transaxles. It wasn’t long, however, before the initial success of the G12 was curtailed by the arrival of Derek Bennett’s brilliant Chevron GT prototypes (later developed into the B6 and B8 production versions of ‘67 and ‘68 respectively), however, the brother’s disappointment was moderated by the introduction of their neat little Hillman Imp-powered G15 road car. The marque’s best seller merited the Walklett’s fullest attention at the factory (now relocated to Witham, Essex), and brought much needed financial stability, but their love affair with sportscar racing was far from over. The G16 of 1968-9, a sleek evolution of the G12 theme, embraced the new open cockpit ‘Group 6’ regulations, albeit with a high windscreen, the frame of which was connected to the roll cage by a distinctive T-piece. Once again, the model was designed from the start to accept a wide range of power units and eight G16s are documented as having been built in period. Although the 1790cc, Ford-based Cosworth FVC was becoming the 2.0-litre of choice in racing circles, BMW’s singleoverhead-cam M10 (2002-type) engine often proved a slightly less powerful but more reliable option over longer distances. G16s also competed with 1600cc Cosworth FVA and Coventry-Climax engines, as well as BRM and larger-capacity Oldsmobile V8s. However, with

G15 production in full swing, there was no spare capacity at Ginetta to properly develop the G16 racer and, inevitably, much of this work fell on customers’ shoulders.

This is a super opportunity to own a well prepared, race-ready, historic Ginetta with current HTP papers that is eligible for a number of championships, would be welcome anywhere, and is on offer at less than half the price of a Chevron B8!

The Mustard Yellow G16 on offer here is Chassis Number 16/008 and was the last chassis built, however, it was never sold and remained in the Walklett family until its purchase by our vendor in 2014. This is confirmed by a covering letter from Ivor Walklett. The car had been around for ages and with the growing popularity of G16s in classic racing, it was decided that the time had come to eventually finish it. Common sense dictated that a new chassis would be appropriate and this was duly fabricated using the original jig and the car built up to a rolling chassis with the intention of securing an Historic Technical Passport (the 1969 chassis will be supplied as part of the package). Race car preparer Ian MacDonald was tasked with building the car and he installed a Craig Beck BMW 2.0-litre and Hewland FT200. The engine produces around 225bhp breathing through twin 48 Webers and exhales through a custom-made manifold and stainless steel system, which we understand meets circuit noise limits. Tony Wilson, who is known to be particularly fastidious, rebuilt the Hewland and any worn components were replaced. The rear wheel bearings have been upgraded (the UJs and splines have remained as original with the HTP in mind) and the gear linkage, which was an issue in period, has been modified and is now fully resolved. The car sits on 8 and 10-inch split rims clothed with the appropriate Dunlop rubber. As the build was fairly recent, the extinguishers and belts are all legal and in-date as is the HANS, which has 2-inch shoulder straps. Our vendors have spent a lot of time testing and developing 008 during their ownership and were just starting to achieve some success with a class podium at the HSCC Guards 3-hour race at Snetterton this season. Anyone doubting the competitiveness of a well driven G16 should have a look at the 20-minute ‘YouTube’ in-car coverage of the 2012 Silverstone round of the HSCC Guards Trophy when 008’s sister car started from the back of the grid and blew everything else into the weeds, winning overall.

The Type 101 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider appeared in 1959 but from 1962 onward the 101 was referred to as the Giulia, now fitted with a larger capacity engine. Both the Giulietta and Giulia, with either the 1290cc or 1570cc Twin-Cam engine, were adored by racing specialists who could tease out higher performance almost on demand. The car presented here, according to its chassis number, is a Type 101.23 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider. The chassis number (AR101.23/373985) is correct for a Spider model and denotes it as a Giulia, albeit a very early 1962 example, just in the change-over period from the 1290cc Giulietta to 1570cc Giulia. The car’s racing life commenced in the mid-1980s, when Keith Goring, the well-known Alfa enthusiast and founder of ‘Alfas Unlimited Inc.’ used his expertise to transform a rolling rust and accident-free Spider road-car into competitive race-car configured with a 1290cc engine. For many years Keith campaigned the car up and down the East Coast with much success at Lime Rock, Grand Bahamas, Watkins Glen, Daytona and Sebring. As such a well-known historic race car, it became known as simply ‘#92’, having now worn this number for three decades. The car was sold on to a Fred Schueddekopp of Washington State and again in March 2009 to an owner who commenced a full bare-metal and mechanical restoration of it. This well-documented process was

very thorough, now with a 1570cc engine fitted. Following this, the car raced as part of the Northern California CSRG vintage series at Sears Point and Thunderhill. In 2012, it was re-fitted with a race-spec 1290cc engine producing 128bhp built by Glenn Olivera of Berkeley, CA whilst Jon Norman Racing installed a limited-slip rear-end and a Giulietta bonnet was also added. In this same year, due to its provenance and being the only Giulia Spider in either race, the car was entered and accepted into the Monterey Reunion and Pre-Reunion races. The rebuilt engine has covered just three races, whilst the head was more recently overhauled by Dan Marvin of Berkeley with all new valves and springs, with just one raced covered. The 5-speed close-ratio gearbox was also refurbished only a few races ago. It is at this specification and usage level that the car is now offered for sale at auction. The car has now been officially imported into the UK (NOVA Ref: NOVA17P794213) and has received some light cosmetic recommissioning. With minimal modifications, this rare Spider race-car could be used in numerous UK and European events. It comes with an impressive history file, including many photographs documenting its restoration. With prices now for road-going Type 101 Giulia Spiders often in excess of £50,000, this race example with decent provenance and lots of potential would make a good buy.

This car was bought new in Dubai for use at the Autodrome but had only been used for a few test days before shipping to the UK. It was purchased from us in February 2016 by our vendor and the Radical joined his immaculate Ferrari collection and kick-started a passion for track days that culminated in him doing eight in this car. During his tenure, our vendor fitted new batteries and driveshafts and naturally the car was prepped before each outing and the oil regularly changed. This consignor advised our vendor not to attempt to patch-fix two three inch cracks to the rear fibreglass above each rear wheel-arch, a common problem with lift-off panels of this type, and to present the car to auction ‘as is’.

This 1963 E-Type left the factory as a left-hand drive roadster and was the 784th built. It returned to the UK and was registered here on the 22nd September 1995, and we believe it was converted to right-hand drive around this time. The conversion to a ‘Lightweight’ was carried out by Brian Wilkinson of Zealia Engineering who are particularly well-respected in the world of Classic Jaguars. Based upon a correct E-Type monocoque, engine frame and running gear, the outer panelling – beautifully shaped to replicate a proper Lightweight – is made from GRP. The result is a very light, very fast and very competent E-Type Jaguar suitable for use on the road and for circuit use. The car is fitted with a partial roll cage and all the (GRP) outer panels have been fitted to the original E-Type tub. We understand that Zealia reinforced the tub as per the original ‘lightweights’ and that uprated Willwood brakes were fitted. A 3.8-litre engine was rebuilt to competition specification with dry sump lubrication and side-draught Webers, and the gearbox has been replaced with a five-speed Getrag unit. The car sits on replica ‘Lightweight E-Type’ peg-drive ‘Dunlop’ wheels with three-eared spinners.

We understand that once finished, the car was entered in a number of Scottish Motor Racing Club events at Knockhill during 1999 in the hands of its owner Steve Wallace. In January 2017, one of the 12 original 1963 Lightweight E-Types, sold for a sterling equivalent of £5,860,000 and therefore this race-proven recreation offers incredible value for money. Presented today with some scuffs to the lightweight panels and in need of a little detailing, this car offers its new owner the opportunity to return the car to historic racing (all the ‘lifed’ safety equipment will need checking for dates), or with its fresh MOT certificate, a very evocative, really quick, road legal E-Type. An original early E-Type rebuilt to a decent competition specification, and prepared by a highly-regarded engineer, using proven chassis tweaks and accurate external panels, as an ‘homage’ to the world’s most desirable Jaguars.

Given that lasting image, it’s probably not surprising that, should you be contemplating building a competitive ‘Club’ rally car from an early mini shell, then replicating the distinctive and much-admired ‘Works’ cars is a no-brainer, which was the decision made by David Becket who in his earlier days rallied a Vanguard for Standard Triumph. This recreation was based on a 1960 Mini (first registered on the 1st. January 1961) and was a perfect starting point as the really early shells were significantly lighter. In 2007, the car was sold to the US and is believed to have been used in ‘regularity rallies’ and time-trials. In 2015, it was repatriated back to the UK through Bob West, the MGA Specialists, and sold to Mike Wilkinson (of M&C Wilkinson Ltd.). He set about further developing the car and getting it to the specification you see here. Our vendor then purchased the car with the intention of campaigning it as a husband and wife team, but other projects took over and the car has been little used of late. It has lots to recommend it and it’s worth noting the details: Engine: 1275cc II (eleven) stud head polished and ported, competition rocker gear, rally camshaft with torque bias, twinchoke Weber carburetor, Cooper ‘S’ 23D Distributor, lightened and balanced connecting rods, competition pistons, lightened and balanced Cooper ‘S’ crank, Duplex timing gear, high capacity oil pump, large-vane water pump, an additional engine steady bar, a high output alternator, Swifttune race exhaust with a manifold

It’s amazing how many motoring images from three or four years in the mid-1960s have gone on to become almost iconic. Steve McQueen’s Highland Green, Shelby 390GT with smoke pouring from the tortured rear tyres, Jim Clark’s Lotus Cortina waving a wheel at the crowd, bespattered, orange and blue, Gulf GT40s crossing the finishing line at Le Mans, and anyone with even a passing interest in Rallying can instantly recall those night-time pictures of the worldbeating works Mini-Cooper S’ of Aaltonen, Makinen and Hopkirk battling through heavy snow on the Col de Turini in ‘65 and ‘66.

It’s road registered, has lots of presence, and would be hard to beat in terms of sheer driving fun for the money.

The famous BMW 3.0 CSL Batmobile was made available for sale in BMW showrooms during May 1972. In order to homologate the race car and enable it to compete in the European Touring Car Championship. Toine Hezemans won the European Touring Car championship of 1973, and also won the class at Le Mans driving with Dieter Quester, and the Batmobile went to win the ETC series every year between 1975 and 1979. It looked spectacular with the combination of a huge front air dam and a massive rear wing on the boot. The name ‘Batmobile’ summed up the dramatic appearance of the legendary racer, which featured on many schoolboys’ bedroom walls as an iconic racer of the era.

A spares package come with this Lot which includes a total of eight spare wheels, various brake pads, drive shaft components, wheel bearings, various suspension parts and front centre lock hubs. The FIA papers are now expired and the seat and belts should be changed before competitive use. However, it is an exciting package that hopefully will once again thrill the crowds as an all-time classic touring car legend.

This particular car was converted from a 3.0CS road car in the late 1980s by saloon racer, the late Tim Busby, and has accumulated many excellent race results over the ensuing 30 years on race tracks all over the world. In 2004 it was sold to Silverstone Auctions owner, Nick Whale, and co-owned by Nick’s best mate Ian Guest. The pair campaigned the car in Patrick Peter’s Classic Endurance Racing series ‘CER’, throughout Europe, including twice at Classic Le Mans in 2004 and 2006 where it won its ‘Plateau’ on both occasions. It also won the coveted Index of Performance award at the 2006 Classic Le Mans, as well as further class wins at Monza, Silverstone, and Spa. It was then sold to Alan Tice who successfully campaigned the car for two or three seasons in the Masters series, before changing hands again in 2013 to our vendor who is a well-known collector of classic cars but not a racer. During his ownership he had the engine rebuilt by noted engine specialist Lester Owen in 2014 at a cost of £6,800, and also had the bodywork modified to Group IV type arches and a full repaint. Since then the car has been to one track day where it covered just a handful of laps at Silverstone. The dyno sheet confirms 379bhp on tap and 306lb/ft torque available when Lester had finished the engine rebuild late in 2014. The original, and very rare, Kugelfischer slide fuel injection is still fitted and the car is ready to be enjoyed once again, although it will need fresh race preparation as it has had so little use over the last three years.

In October 1997, Mitsubishi introduced the radical ‘Pajero Evolution’ in order to homologate their Paris-Dakar entry of the same year. Standard fitment was a 3.5-litre, 24-valve DOHC V6 engine, which featured their very advanced MIVEC system (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing and Electronic lift Control). A new dual-plenum variable intake further improved both bhp and torque throughout the power range and an enhanced suspension with high-tech dampers improved both ride and handling. This very special Evolution, chassis number V554401341 was purchased from Mitsubishi by Ralli Art with a view to it being built into a T1/T2 Rally Specification vehicle, eligible for the aforementioned Dakar Rally, and many thousands of pounds were invested in building this car for its client Matador Tyres. These Evos were the most successful in their series and D-OR1010 took part in many Rallies (including the Dakar) and comes with its original Passport showing scrutineers remarks, dates and stamps etc., confirming that this Evo has seen some serious action.

D-OR1010 was then returned to its original Ralli Art Red and re-commissioned back to its prime off-road status, however, the current owner has changed his plans and is not going to use the car for competition – so it’s now ready for a new owner to pick up the reins. A number of documents will accompany the car including the Scrutineer’s Forms showing events entered, invoices, the original build sheets and wiring diagrams. The car comes with a number of replacement parts including wishbones, CV joints, and driveshafts, which are the bits most likely to be damaged during off-road competition. The vehicle is not road registered in the UK but it may be possible to MOT test and register the car in order to compete in road rallies and time-trials. This represents a rare opportunity to buy a piece of off-road racing history with a decent pedigree, and it does make an amazing noise.

The car found its way from Matador Germany over to Matador Wales with a view to being used for promotional work and also to take part in the British Off-Road Championship, however, it became sidelined for a period before finding its way into the current owner’s hands.

1984 Rover SD1 V8

Chassis Number: TBC Engine Number: TBC Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000

Bid via the Internet on lot 130

Launched on the home market in 1976, the SD1 (code for Specialist Division Number 1) was British Leyland’s replacement for both the Triumph 2000/2500 and Rover P6, and was largely the creative responsibility of the duo that had already conceived the Range Rover – David Bache (design) and Spen King (engineering). The new Rover was initially only available with a 3.5-litre V8 followed a year later by the 2.3 and 2.6 straight sixes, however, it was the Buick-designed 3500cc V8 engined car that was to create the most impact, offering power and comfort in equal measure and culminating in its crowning as European Car of the Year in 1977.

Power comes from a recently rebuilt, 4.5-litre ‘Tuscan Challenge’ wet-sump engine (original dry-sump and pump are included) with quad 48mm Dellortos and is reported to produce around 355bhp with significant torque (dyno printout with the car). To cope with this considerable ‘grunt’ the gearbox is a beefy Getrag 262 five-speed with a hydraulic throw-out bearing and an upgraded clutch assembly. A race spec ‘Safety Devices’ roll cage, 90-litre FIA fuel tank, and OMP race seats and belts complete the impressive specification. Our vendor reports that the car weighs around 1,080kgs, which taking into account the horsepower on tap, suggests that this is a seriously quick motor car.

This Rover SD1 race car has been finished in a style very similar to the 1983 Marlboro-sponsored TWR Vitesse and has been racing in the Dutch race series ‘YTCC’ at world famous European race tracks such as Hockenheim, Zandvoort, Spa and Le Mans.

Included with the car are lots of pictures of the rebuild, some from the earlier conversion in 1994, various magazines in which the car has featured, recent race programs, and sundry documents from its early road going years, showing it was actually first registered in the UK on the 21st May 1984. Invoices are present covering recent works and a number of UK MOT tests from the 80s and early 90s.

Our vendor acquired a road going SD1 some years ago that had been modified for occasional track use and set about rebuilding it to full racing spec. He started by totally stripping the car, had the shell aciddipped and started the rebuild process with the intention of creating a competitive and fun historic race car. Various new parts were sourced from ‘Rimmer Bros’ and the chassis was seam-welded resulting in a very stiff base which was then built up with uni-ball suspension, adjustable Leda shocks and four-pot calipers all round.

Ultima Sports Ltd. is a sports car manufacturer currently based in Hinckley in Leicestershire. They were founded in 1992 by Ted and Richard Marlow and are best known for building and distributing worldwide the amazing Ultima Evolution which held the distinction of being the fastest production car in the world and, at one time, was famously quicker that any other supercar around the Top Gear track by seconds. Offered here is the original prototype chassis made by Ultima which also formed the basis of the original Pro-Sport 3000 chassis designed by Lee Noble. It was subsequently modified to accept a Ferrari engine and ZF gearbox by Ryan Hodges for use in Thundersports. Its current specification was engineered by Gerry Cannon of Cantrac incorporating a Rover/Buick engine mated to a Renault Sport Alpine GTA gearbox. Front suspension and brakes are from an Arrows A8 Grand Prix car and rear uprights from a Lola Can-Am car. The bodywork is molded from Kevlar mat and the cockpit and doors are Carbon Fibre. The original chassis is mild steel spaceframe with aluminum panels on the floor and sides.

program in the mid-1970s. It was subsequently bought by Victor Gauntlet at the closing down sale of BL’s Competition Department in 1976. In 2009 the engine was overhauled by the respected J.E. Developments fitting a new crankshaft and two liners in the process. When rolling road tested at Peter Baldwins it produced 286bhp at the rear wheels running on Weber IDAs from a Formula 5000 car. A very comprehensive and lengthy specification sheet listing in detail all components will be available at the time of sale. This stunning Ultima weighs in at 820kg which suggests a fairly serious power-toweight ratio. It has been used by its owner at sprint events but would be quite at home on a circuit in a suitable championship. Lots of interesting history, incredible performance and, at this guide, it’s difficult to imagine more ‘Bangs for your Buck’.

There was a time, between 1999 and 2004, that this particular car was the most dominant and successful Lotus Cortina racing in the UK. Known affectionately as ‘LUV 12’, because the car always ran with the plates LUV 12, (although never registered as such) it won many races in both the HSCC Series and FIA races abroad. It was part of a two car équipe, very professionally prepared and run, with engines built and developed by Nick Stagg Engineering. This car won many races both in the UK and abroad and, in fact, was never beaten by another Lotus Cortina holding many lap records for both the class and overall. It is extremely well set up (so says our MD, Nick Whale, who drove the car both at Spa and the A1 Ring), handles superbly, and would undoubtedly still be competitive today, particularly in the ever-popular HSCC Historic Saloon series, for which it is still eligible. Sadly, this much-lauded Lotus has not waved a wheel for most of the last decade as our vendor hung up his helmet, but was too emotionally attached to it to sell it and thus it will need recommissioning before being raced again. However, it provides a fantastic basis with an exceptional history, offers great value for money in this price range and is just begging to be driven again.

release spotlights, 10mm endurance sump guard, integrated roof rack assembly, carbon roof scoop, Safari bull-bar with modern headlamps etc.

In the mid-1990s it was professionally rebuilt for competition purposes as an exact replica of the famous Roger Clark RS1600 Mk1 “LVX 942J” for renowned rally driver and collector, Roy Cathcart. Staying in his collection and unused, it was eventually sold to Neil Calvert in 1999 and used in the inaugural MSA British Historic Rally Championship in 2000 (against our MD Nick Whale!).

The specification is massively comprehensive and will be supplied to any potential buyer, as will the spares list and a copy of ‘RS The Faster Ford’ by Jeremy Walton and ‘Escort Performance’ by Dennis Foy - both of which this car features in. They have even made a model of this car, which is available through Trofu models.

Neil won class C4, finishing third overall in the championship, and was only to use the car twice more - the ‘Bulldog’ rally and the Roger Albert Clark rally - both in 2004.

Sadly, the 2011 London to Capetown rally was cancelled and, as a result, the car has never turned a wheel, in anger remaining quietly indoors ever since in professional dry storage, not an appropriate fate for such an immaculately prepared, stunningly presented example of the ‘Golden Years’ of British Rallying!

Kept carefully in dry storage until 2009, it was then sold to our vendor who commissioned top International historic rally team, ‘Dansport’ of Chesterfield, to professionally convert the car to the ultimate ‘Safari’ specification for participation in the 2011 LondonCapetown rally.

Offered today fully prepared with zero competitive miles, it represents a very special opportunity to acquire an ultimate Safari spec Escort at a small fraction of its original build cost.

The shell was sent to Gartac Engineering who converted it to lefthand drive, fitted a Safari-spec roll cage, and then added long-range fuel tanks and full Safari-spec suspension. The modifications and upgrades are to the highest of standards and the full specification can be supplied on request to our offices. However, here are some highlights: 2.3-litre ‘Pinto’ built with a heavy duty block, steel crank and rods, forged pistons, competition valves and camshafts, a 10.7:1 compression ratio, heavy duty AP clutch, 5-speed T9 Helical c/r gearbox with alloy casing, fully floating rear axle, 5.1 CWP and Gripper half shafts.

The damaged shell and original logbook, which had been given to Michelin by British Leyland for tyre testing with a normal Metro ID, was sold on. Barton was then able to purchase a rolling shell from Dave Appleby, the renowned 6R4 expert and Tony Ponds ‘works’ 6R4 technician. So with factory approval, the 6R4 was granted a correct 6R4 ID making it possible for the DVLA, with the correct provenance, to issue an age-related plate.

In the mid-1980s, the ‘Group B’ race category of the World Rally Championship inspired the wildest, most powerful rally cars ever built. The MG Metro 6R4 was born out of this short-lived turbocharged era and Austin Rover’s optimistic thirst for motorsport success after the TR7 V8 and TR8 rally cars had hung up their competitive boots. The entire project was the brainchild of Austin Rover Motor Sport Chief, John Davenport, who collaborated with the best engineering brains in the land and Patrick Head and John Piper from Williams F1 were brought onboard.

The car has been campaigned latterly by Ron Aiken of Mainline Haulage from 2001. From then until 2008, he competed in an estimated twenty-five tarmac events with four outright wins, six top three results and rarely finished out of the top ten for the remainder. Between 2009 and 2013 the 6R4 was laid up in dry storage. For the 2014 season, the engine was rebuilt by Mike Barratt Race Engines in Lincoln and Ian Chamberlain Motorsport refitted it and prepared the car. He finished 2nd overall in the Wigan and District Motor Club ‘Cetus Stages’ and 4th overall at ‘AdgeSpeed’, however, gearbox problems led to retirements at Rockingham and MIRA in 2015. Last year, Bara Engineering overhauled the large-tooth dog box and thickwall centre differential. The 2.5-litre engine runs on slide throttles and a Lucas engine management system. The Metro is now on the button and ready to compete with a full MOT certificate. With ‘Group B’ rally cars hitting the £400,000 mark, British Leyland’s very capable answer to the elite manufacturers ‘Group B’ cars, now looks incredible value.

Legendary and much-missed rally legend Colin Steele McRae, MBE needs no long introduction. As the son of five-time British Rally Champion, Jimmy McRae and brother of rally driver Alister McRae, he was the 1991 and 1992 British Rally Champion and, in 1995, became the first Brit and the youngest person ever to win the World Rally Championship Drivers’ title, a record he still holds. With rallying running through the family bloodline, it is a pleasure for Silverstone Auctions to offer this car, coming directly from Colin’s Uncle, Hugh ‘Shuggs’Steel. Having been in Hugh’s ownership since 1984, he gave the car to his son in 2008, however, for storage reasons, Hugh has retained the car. Although Hugh is a talented rally driver in his own right, it was Colin’s skill at the wheel of this 1976 Escort MkII in the 1990 Hackle Rally that inspired a page in the acclaimed book, “McRae - Just Colin” by Colin McMaster and David Evans, and with kind permission we can publish an extract penned by Robert Reid, Colin’s co-driver that day: ‘I got a phone call from Colin… “Fancy doing The Hackle at the weekend, Rab?”…and so off we went and did it in his Uncle Shugg’s MkII Escort Pinto. It was a horrible wet day but we won the event… there was a flat-out downhill bit and at this point, McRae leant right across to my side of the car whilst I was trying to read the map. I wondered what the hell he was doing, then I realised he’d slackened off his belts to see out of my side because at 90mph the windscreen wiper on his side had lifted completely off the screen.’ A copy of this book, signed by Jimmy McRae, is included in the sale. This car was built without compromise and some brief details of the specification follow: The shell was fully seam-welded on a gusseted chassis before being fitted with a ‘Safety Devices’ 14-point cage. Sill skids were fitted and a 12-gallon alloy fuel tank was mounted on a strengthened platform prior to all the fuel, oil and brake pipes being run internally.

A Panhard 5-link setup was chosen for the rear suspension with singleleaf slipper springs and Bilstein shocks. The front end is controlled by adjustable Bilstein ‘coil-overs’ with roller top-mounts, adjustable control arms and a ‘beefy’ roll-bar. An OMP steering wheel feeds steering input through a bespoke fully adjustable power-steering system and a ‘quick’ rack. Retardation is aided by the use of vented discs on alloy hubs with AP 4-pot calipers, the handbrake is hydraulic, and the pedal box is offset and has a dashboard adjuster. The car sits on 15-inch Group 4 Minilites. The 2.4 Holbay engine was subject to a full rebuild in 2011, which included a new block, pistons and billeted crankshaft, the head was ported and polished at the same time, and a torque-biased Holbay cam was fitted. Fuel is fed to the two ‘48’ Webers by twin faucet fuel pumps, exploded by electronic ignition and a Holbay distributor, and exhausted through a Janspeed tubular manifold and single-box system. (NB the Holbay engine block SR 48986 is supplied with the car.) The oil system is dry-sumped with the alloy oil tank and 6-port pump in the rear of the car. The alloy engine sump is protected by a lightweight sumpguard. Power is fed through an AP twin-paddle clutch to the quick-shift, 5-speed Quaife competition gearbox and subsequently through the lightened and balanced single-piece propshaft to the fully-floating Salisbury axle with limited-slip diff. Everything is kept cool by an alloy high-capacity radiator and a full competition coolant system. Inside the car is fully equipped with OMP bucket seats and sixpoint harnesses, AFF plumbed-in fire extinguisher, AFF hand held extinguisher and all the usual instruments including a Stack rev counter. To conclude, this car has the dual distinction of being a winner in the hands of one of the 20th Century’s greatest rally drivers, and a unique thirty-three-year McRae family ownership. Described as “ready to rally” with all the paperwork in place, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a car steeped in history at a very attractive guide price.

Although most frequently féted for their success in International Rallying, Mk1 Escorts were equally at home on the circuits. Most familiar in the colours of Broadspeed, Zakspeed and Alan Mann Racing, they would also feature strongly in a series of one-make celebrity races and of course the Escort Mexico Challenge. This 1974 Mk1 Escort has been specifically developed to pay homage to the Red and Gold Group 1 cars run by the much respected and much missed Alan Mann. It has been a competitive participant for the last 10 years with the same owner in the BARC Classic Touring Cars Championship and could do likewise with the CSCC. The basis of the car is a clean 1974 shell, which was fully prepared (seam-welded and Waxoyled) in 2006 by ‘Prepfab Motorsport Engineering’ with a multi-point welded-in roll cage. The engine is a full-race spec 2.0-litre Pinto, which in September 2016 was built by a former BRM engineer at Paul Fisher Engineering at a cost of £10,000. The engine has only done 1.5 hours of racing since this build. Many new parts were used including a Farndon steel crank, steel rods, Accralite forged pistons, a large valve head, Tony Law exhaust, and a Titan dry sump kit. The engine produces over 200bhp as tested on a dyno (print-out in the history file). Also fitted are a steel flywheel, twin 45 Webers, an H&H distributor and coil, an

Power is fed through a Quaife 4-speed, dog-leg box, a twin-plate hydraulic racing clutch, and a single-piece prop-shaft, to a 3.9 limited-slip differential with ‘Group 4’ half-shafts. The steering uses fully-adjustable electronic power-assistance. The brakes utilise Princess 4-pot calipers with a rear disc brake conversion and a hydraulic handbrake. The suspension setup is Bilstein front shock-absorbers with an AVO rear with adjustable track control arms, a Panhard rod and anti-tramp bars. Also fitted is a 10-gallon, stainless steel fuel tank with twin pumps and the catch-tank and battery are securely boot-mounted. In terms of safety, all the wiring and fluid pipes are run internally with a ‘Lifeline 2000’ plumbed-in fire extinguisher and internal switch-box. The car comes with a spare set of wheels and tyres. The door cards and door handles are still in place, presumably to comply with the regs, but otherwise, the car is a pure racer. The standard of preparation seems superb and I don’t know many racing drivers who wouldn’t be happy to jump in this evocative little red and gold Escort.

First registered on the last day of September in 1965, this lovely four-door Cortina GT was restored about 16 years ago and developed into an Historic Rally Car.

sale from the car’s past life are two front original Rally-style seats and the standard serviceable rear diff. Motoscope of Northallerton have done a lot of work on this car and there are a number of bills in the history file, along with a full history since 2000.

In 2000, the car was fully stripped and treated to a bare metal respray in Ermine White with a side flash in Grey, rather than Lotus Green.

Our vendor has known the car for 16 years and owned it for six and he tells us that ‘Everything works’.

It was then carefully built with Historic (Regularity) Rallies in mind, noting the requirements of the appropriate regulations, and currently, possesses both FIA and FIVA papers.

It’s unusual to find a four-door rally car but they weren’t uncommon back in the sixties, and indeed, were often preferred by crews as “They are easier to climb out of when you are upside down”.

The detailed list of modifications is too long to list here but includes a Rocket (2000E) gear box, low rear axle ratio with Trans-X Salisbury English LSD 22T, Lotus Cortina front anti-roll bar, Twin Facet fuel pumps and fuel regulator, and 2 ‘GTS’ Recliner front seats.

This is a very tidy and nicely prepared car and somehow just ‘looks right’. We can’t think of a better way to get involved in Historic Rallying.

The engine was rebuilt in 2007 at 8,200 miles (14,000 miles now indicated) and has recently had new front brake calipers, pads, and new rear wheel cylinders. Minilite Wheels really suit a Cortina and CTH 969C has six with decent tyres and in addition, has four reconditioned original steel wheels with tyres. Also included in the

Originally introduced in 1967, the Ford Escort was a success in many parts of Western Europe. In the UK it was the highest selling car of the whole of the 1960s and In 1974, less than six years after the car’s UK introduction, Ford announced the completion of the two millionth Ford Escort, a milestone unmatched by any Ford model outside the USA. This Mk1 Escort has been built to race specification, but not any ordinary Mk1 race specification. Steve Howard, who used to build cars for the Clarkson ‘Top Gear’ team such as the BMW M3 that they famously drove in the ‘Britcar 24 Hours’, created this car as a labour of love. It’s not clear whether the car was built to a set of championship regs for ‘Super Saloons’ or Castle Combe, or was simply an exercise in producing the ‘wildest’ Mk1 Escort they could, but the result is spectacular and the car is road-legal with a V5. The spec sheet is too long to list here but will be available with the car at the auction. Under the bonnet is a TVR 4.5 AJP V8 running a flat plane billet crank, steel rods and billet cams. Engine management is by MBE with TVR throttle bodies and we understand that the result is a reported 500 bhp and 316lb ft of torque.

All this grunt is handled by a Borg-Warner five-speed box with a straight cut fifth gear and racing clutch. Gaz ‘Gold’ coil overs are used for the front suspension, Gaz adjustable telescopic dampers on the rear and the whole car is ‘rose-jointed’. The brakes are AP racing, four-pot calipers with 320mm vented and drilled discs up front and a setup from a 2WD Sierra Cosworth at the rear. The car is accompanied by an interesting article in ‘Fast Ford’ magazine detailing its history. Finished in Ford Focus ‘ST’ Orange with Black ‘Mexico’ stripes, this car looks great sat on Silver Minilites and it wouldn’t take a lot of detailing to turn it into a ‘Paddock Queen’, however, it’s the quality of components and sheer engineering integrity that is the essence of this Ford, and whether you chose to continue to use it on the circuits, for Sprints and Hill Climbs, or put it through an MOT test and rumble round town, 500bhp in a Mk1 Escort has to be addictive!

Crosslé may have begun by producing Ford specials, and their forté has always been Formula Ford, but prior to the FF 1600 cars of 1969, they produced cars to compete in Formula Junior, Formula 2, Formula B (as in this case) and Formula 5000. The company’s reputation took a major leap forward in 1967 with the introduction of the Series 12F produced for competition in ‘Formula B’. The 12F was a monoposto, mid-engined, space frame, car powered by an inline 4-cylinder Lotus twin-cam version of the 1600cc Ford. American Crosslé importer, Roger Barr, won the 1968 SCCA ‘Formula B’ title in one of the four 12Fs (six were produced in total) that were shipped to America. This 12F is understood to be one of those four and we believe raced between 1967 and 1972 at East Coast venues, recording 11 wins and several top place finishes including Watkins Glen, NY, Marlboro, MD, and Reading PA. This car recorded the fastest time of the day in the opening race at Pocono Raceway in 1968. Prior to our vendor purchasing and returning the car to the UK in

The Crosslé Car company Limited of Northern Ireland began when founder John Crosslé climbed into his home built 1172cc Ford Special in March 1957. From that time forward, Crosslé built and maintained a reputation for designing quality race cars that are both competitive and sturdy.

2007, it’s evident from the car’s history file that it had been refreshed in 2000 with a new (all SCCA-legal) fuel cell, detachable wheel, 6-point harness, fire-control system, dual ignition system with switch on dash, front and rear brake balance, in-car rear roll bar adjuster, rain light, and in-car air-fuel gauge. The original and desirable Hewland Mark 5 transmission is still in place, now upgraded to mark 8/9 specifications. Shortly after his purchase, we are told that the car was returned to Crosslé for a detailed inspection in 2008 prior to our vendor racing it, however, for a number of reasons the car has never been used since. It’s in possession of an MSA HTP (2011) and is accompanied by a host of spares including a spare block. In common with any competition car that has not been used for a while, no matter how pretty it looks, a detailed inspection will be vital. Finished in Red and Gold on a Grey spaceframe, this is a very good looking car, sort of halfway between a mid-sixties F1 Lotus and an F3 Lola, with a distinct touch of Eagle-Weslake. The car is eligible for the HSCC Classic Racing Car series (Class C or G), Formula Libre, and one or two championships on the Continent, and could provide access to some serious grids for a very, very sensible guide.

Lot 501 Day 1

1981 Aston Martin Lagonda Series II Saloon

Chassis Number: 13073 Engine Number: V/580/3073 Estimate: No Reserve Leave a bid or book a phone bid on lot 501 Bid via the Internet on lot 501

The Aston Martin Lagonda was a luxury four-door saloon built by Aston Martin of Newport Pagnell, between 1976 and 1989. A total of 645 examples were produced at an average selling price of £150,000, and the name was derived from the Lagonda marque that Aston Martin had purchased in 1947. Aston Martin was facing severe financial pressure in the mid-1970s following the petrol crisis and the Lagonda was aimed predominantly at the US and Middle Eastern markets. The Lagonda was the first production car in the world to use computer management, a digital instrument panel and second series cathode ray tubes for the instrumentation. It combined striking styling with an opulent ‘members club’ leather interior, and with its state-ofthe-art instrument panel was a veritable spaceship. Coupled with a Chrysler 3-speed “TorqueFlite” automatic transmission, its quad-cam carburetted V8 could provide massive linear thrust when required. The later Series 3 and all Series 4 models were fuel injected. This Aston Martin Lagonda Series II Saloon has been in the possession of its last registered keeper since 200, and was purchased with the intention to restore the car as a ‘running project’. Unfortunately, the restoration was not completed and the car was stored for many years. Prior to coming off the road, this Lagonda was

82

Registration: LOOR13073

Race Retro Competition & Classic Car Sale

registered to previous owners including a Mr G. Williams (registration: GYW 7W) and a Mr P. Walton (registration: VHR 111). More recently, the car has been to a leading Aston Martin Heritage specialist for a full inspection. The engine is reported to run very smoothly and show good oil pressure. The electrical system is still in working condition, as is the digital instrument panel. The Aston Martin Heritage dealer has taken the car for an extensive test drive to test all main functions of the car like the engine, brake system, fuel system etc. “For a car that has stood for such a long time, she still shows remarkably good technical condition.” Understandably, the car does require a restoration, but “she really does deserve a second chance.” Offered without reserve, this Aston Martin Lagonda is sold strictly as seen and we encourage prospective bidders to inspect the vehicle prior to bidding. Finished in Laguna Beige bodywork with matching cream leather upholstery, this very rare car would make an ideal restoration candidate and deserves to be fully road-worthy once again. Interest in these dynamic Lagondas has certainly risen in recent years, as collectors acknowledge their limited production numbers, futuristic styling and advanced eighties technology.

Theoretically, it was only available from specially appointed Ford RS dealers, which was a bit of a marketing ploy. Powered by a potent CVH 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a Garrett T2 turbocharger, it was blindingly quick, developing 132bhp with a top speed of 133 mph and a 0-60 time of 7.9 seconds. The transmission was lifted from an Escort RS Turbo and the suspension was developed to cope with the higher cornering speeds. Visually, there was a set of 14’’ RS alloy wheels, a body kit, green rather than blue stripe mouldings, colour-coded rear spoiler and door pillars, opening rear quarter windows, green tinted glass and RS bonnet louvres. Anti-lock brakes and a ‘Quickclear’ heated front windscreen were options at extra cost. Inside the car, the differences included Raven-coloured Recaro seats trimmed in Benetton/Ascot, a grey leather-trimmed gear knob, and a three-spoke steering wheel with the RS Turbo logo embossed on the centre cap. The car was also fitted with a sunroof, electric windows, and central locking.

The Fiesta RS Turbo was the high-performance model in the Ford Fiesta Mk3 range and was introduced as a three-door version only in April 1990 with production continuing until 1992.

Lot 502

1990 Ford Fiesta RS Turbo

The car presented here then is something very special. It’s a completely standard 1990 Fiesta RS Turbo, having covered only 23,600 verifiable miles with just one previous keeper (between 1990 and 2015). The car has been kept in metaphorical cotton-wool and is in superb condition. The level of preservation under the bonnet and in the interior is matched only by the car’s underside – it appears to have never been out in the rain, with the PDI (pre-delivery inspection) marks still evident on the suspension. Interested parties are welcome to closely inspect this little Ford, the closer the better. It’s supplied with a thorough history file, containing many receipts for parts and servicing, numerous MOT certificates helping corroborate the mileage, and a complete Ford book pack containing the owner’s manuals etc. This is a real opportunity to buy a remarkable example of a rare ‘Fast Ford’. Very rarely do completely unmolested RS cars with so few miles and a confirmable history come to the market. With classic Ford prices for exceptional cars only going one way, this Fiesta RS could be a shrewd purchase.

1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16v Cosworth

Registration: F702 HWB Chassis Number: WDB2010352F557856/1 Engine Number: 10299020000260 Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000 Leave a bid or book a phone bid on lot 503 Bid via the Internet on lot 503

In 1983, Mercedes introduced the Cosworth 2.3-16 into their range and the new 16-valve cars were substantially different from the other 190 models. The body kit reduced the drag coefficient to 0.32, the steering ratio was quicker and the steering wheel smaller than that on other 190s, whilst the fuel tank was enlarged from 55 to 70L. The Getrag 5-speed manual gearbox was unique to the 16-valve and featured a ‘dog-leg’ first gear. An enlarged 2.5-litre engine replaced the 2.3 in 1988 and offered double-row timing chains to fix the unreliable single chains on the early 2.3s. Power output was up by 17bhp with a slight increase in torque. The suspension on 16-valve models is very different from the standard 190 and, as well as being lower and stiffer, it has quicker dampers, larger anti-roll bars, harder bushes and hydraulic self-levelling suspension on the rear, allowing the rear ride-height to remain constant even when the car is fully loaded. Our vendor acquired this right-hand drive, UK-supplied, MB 190E 2.516v Cosworth in 1992 when it was about three years old (originally registered 26/02/1989) and had been enjoyed by two previous owners. He used it on a regular basis until around 2005 when, although well maintained, the little Mercedes had begun to look a bit tired and sorry for itself. He had really enjoyed the car and was in a bit of a quandary as to whether to sell it and buy another, tidy the car and sell it then, or carry out a full renovation. After much deliberation, the latter course of action won the day and a full ‘nut and bolt’ restoration was decided upon although it wasn’t to be until March 2008 that the ball started rolling.

The story of the next few years and the details of this superb, no expense spared, total restoration is far too long to list here, however, anyone interested in this car might enjoy the extensive and lengthy account at: detailingworld.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=113980 The car was eventually finished in 2012 and we understand that it has covered less than 1,000 miles since then. The engine is effectively just run-in, and the coachwork, interior and mechanics are all postrestoration plus 1,000 miles. This car is fully loaded and comes with all the optional extras available at that time. The entertainment system allows for a hands-free phone, full flat-screen Sat Nav, TV, DVD, CD, rear-view camera and much more. The recorded mileage is known to be correct, but undocumented, and for the same reason, no service documents exist, however there are SORN Documents and a V5 with the car, and it will be freshly MOT’d at the time of the sale. When you look at the massive quantity of new parts fitted to this car and the all-encompassing nature of the rebuild, then its history is a touch academic. This delightful Cosworth Mercedes has been a complete ‘labour of love’ for its vendor and Silverstone Auctions welcome any inspection.

Having searched fruitlessly in the UK to find a single specialist that could carry out every single aspect of the car’s return to its sparkling best, our vendor eventually found a company in Germany that seemed happy and confident about undertaking the entire project. That company was Team Stadler Motorsport from Hannoversch Munden who specialise in Mercedes from the eighties and nineties and particularly the 190 Series (W201) The new engine was supplied and fitted by the well-known Merparts Ltd. from Port Glasgow in Scotland.

Of all the BMW ‘Z’ cars, the ‘Zukunft’ tag is arguably most fittingly applied to the Z1, a car that even now, twenty-five years after it first went on sale, looks fresh and modern. The Z1 used a skeletal frame on which the body panels were mounted, making it incredibly stiff, banishing scuttle shake and giving the car superb handling. The body panels were made of plastic, mounted on a substructure of hot-dipped galvanised pressed steel and the seams were continuously zinc welded, adding 25 per cent to body stiffness. The side panels and doors were made from General Electric’s ‘Xenoy’ injection-cast thermoplastic, the bonnet and boot lid were glass reinforced plastic and the whole body was painted in a special flexible lacquer. ‘State-of-the art’ thinking was evident in every aspect of the car’s design. Those magnificent doors were operated by toothed belts which lowered both the window and door at the touch of a button. The Z1 used the innovative ‘Z-axle’ suspension set-up at the rear and also featured some clever aerodynamics, the front of the car was designed to create a high-pressure zone ahead of the wheels to induce downforce whilst the aerofoil-shaped rear silencer helped to decrease turbulence and lift. The engine is one of BMW’s finest in the form of the M20B25 unit taken from the E30 325i. The Z1 is special in every sense of the word; it’s special to look at, to sit in, to drive and importantly, as the years have passed, people have clearly started to appreciate it as prices have soared. This is a marvellous little car with almost universal appeal and is, without a doubt, one of BMW’s finest moments of the past thirty years. When our vendor’s father bought this car new on the 5th August 1989, it was to spark a life-long passion in our vendor for the Z1, leading ultimately to him taking over ownership of the little Z1 from his father in 2004. At this point, he decided to undertake a programme of extensive restoration that ultimately cost close to £25,000, all of which is receipted in detail in the history file and is covered in detail in a book titled “BMW Z1 Roadster – Celebrating the 20th Anniversary in Pictures” authored by our enthusiastic vendor.

Starting with a replacement engine, (the original head had failed at 90,000 miles), a suitable Z1 2.5-litre engine with 33,000 miles was sourced and fitted. The details of this comprehensive restoration would fill a book (it did) and included a new ‘Visco’ clutch, new radiator, new belts on the electric doors, high performance ‘Franz Schaffer’ brake kit, ‘Motorsport’ suspension springs, new 3.91 ‘Visco’ limited slip differential, new Klaus Hermann Mayer roof, Franz Schaffer glass wind deflector, new windscreen, new front light glass covers, original Z1 ‘Nubuck’ leather seats, BTB twin exhaust system, remote locking and ‘ghost’ door opening kit, and 18-inch ‘Project Khan’ wheels, together with an original set of BMW 16-inch wheels. All of this was complemented by a panel-off respray in contemporary BMW colour Chilli Red by Rene Visser of Holland. Presented to auction with a fresh MOT, this Z1 has the distinction of being restored to an exacting standard, from long-term family ownership and is in superb order. The private registration number UL Z1 1898 is included, as is a whole host of spares, the ‘Project Khan’ alloy wheels and copy of the aforementioned book written by our vendor.

The M3, when launched in 1986, was the first purpose-built BMW saloon specifically designed with motor racing in mind. It was an ‘homologation special’ taken to the ultimate extreme with wheelbase and track optimised for the circuit, a high-revving powerful 2.3-litre, four-cylinder, 16-valve engine, a close ratio 5-speed gearbox with a direct drive top gear, purposeful square arches and fully optimised suspension and brakes. Only available in left-hand drive and priced at a hefty £26,000 in its day - it was unsurprising that only a very limited number of cars came to the UK. However, they completely dominated on the race track, with Touring Car titles claimed Internationally, including the most prestigious UK and German Touring Car crowns.

The Bentley Continental ‘T’ is a special motor car and comparatively rare, with just 322 examples gliding out the doors of the Crewe factory between 1996 and 2002. This rarity may have had something to do with an eye-watering list price of £234,000 plus options when new! The ‘T’ differed from the ‘R’ by having a shorter wheelbase, sportier handling, an increase in BHP from 400 to 420, but more significantly with a stump-pulling 650lbs/feet of torque, the highest of any road car at the time and higher even than any F1 car from the 1997 season. The January 1998 ‘Autocar’ said of the car after a road test; “Astonishingly rapid for any coupé, let alone one that weighs the same as five and a half Caterham 7s!”

During the 1960s in South Africa, Basil Green established a reputation for modifying European saloons to great effect. In 1969, his imagination was set alight by the arrival of the Ford Capri. He could see the potential to create a bespoke, more powerful and exciting version for the road, and that vision became the Ford Capri Perana. The Perana V8 is unique in that it is the only V8 Ford Capri ever officially sanctioned by Ford and was available from all South African Ford dealers with a full Ford warranty.

block but does, according to our vendor, utilise many original and correct components.

The Perana was based on the Mk1 Ford Capri 3000 XL but was powered by an up-rated Ford Mustang 5.0-litre ‘302 Windsor’ small block V8 Ford engine. Bright Yellow or ‘Piri Piri’ Red were officially the only colour options. The twin black stripes running either side of the bonnet and sweeping up the curve of the rear side windows and the chromed Rostyle wheels were the defining external features. In addition, the car had Perana badges below the XL badges and V8 badges on the bonnet and boot.

In the world of Ford Capris, a Perana V8 is one of those models that all the enthusiasts covet, the ‘Holy Grail’. With Classic Ford prices for rare and special examples only going one way, this is a real opportunity to own one of the true legends.

Since being officially imported by our vendor (NOVA No: 17P792400), the car has had a thorough re-commissioning with a professional engine rebuild. It has since been ratified by the Capri Mk1 Owners’ Club and is currently awaiting a UK registration number and V5C document.

These cars do not come onto the market often, and rarer still is a Perana with so many original and sought-after features as the car presented here. Our vendor’s interest in these rare and special cars spawned a meeting between his contact and Basil Green himself. What with a truly unique knowledge of these cars, Basil kindly had numerous telephone conversations with our vendor about this car. Its features were discussed and detailed photographs were sent to Basil, with him being able to identify from these many of the defining original features which a genuine Capri Perana should possess, including the correct Ford chassis tag, (which is hidden under the driver’s seat and confirms it was supplied to Perana Cars), an inverted steering rack and the all-important Basil Green Motors plate under the bonnet. This is, therefore, car #434 produced in 1972 and fitted with a very rare factory automatic gearbox. Being a later example means it has the more desirable flared wheel-arches and distinctive black louvered rear windscreen. The car is fitted with the correct specification 302 engine for a Perana Capri V8, however it does not retain the original

Alpina Burkard Bovensiepen GmbH & Co. KG, or simply ‘Alpina’ the official BMW tuning partner - has had a long and celebrated association with the Munich car maker, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015. Credited with re-engineering some very special cars over the years, Alpina’s approach is often to refine and build on the latent driving and styling characteristics of a standard car, adding a certain Alpina ‘magic’ that only they can bestow. Their reputation and following are very strong, appealing to discerning buyers who want a special, rare and characterful car. Such are their credentials, that Alpina was recognised by the German Ministry of Transport in 1983 as an ‘Automobile Manufacturer’ in its own right.

with air conditioning, electric glass sunroof, electric windows, electric door mirrors, central locking and an onboard computer.

In 1985, Alpina formed a partnership with Frank Sytner to establish a UK outlet for Alpina models at the Sytner Nottingham BMW dealership which had been awarded its initial BMW franchise in 1970. The first seven UK Alpina B10 3.5 E28s, were, according to online sources, based on the 528i, with later models being based on the 535i. The ‘Sytner Alpinas’, as they became known, were sent the 3.5-litre engine, suspension, badging and the all important dashboard plaque from the Alpina factory, for assembly in the UK.

Purchased by our vendor, the chief executive of a leading and wellknown company, to add to his stable of immaculate cars, the B10 has been well maintained but rarely used in his short tenure, and the decision has been made to allow the car to be enjoyed by its next lucky owner. With an odometer reading of fewer than 60,500 miles, the car presents beautifully and the black leather interior shows just enough patina. Included in the sale is a box of trophies, however the private registration number, B6 RMK, is not included. Retention proceedings have begun, and the car will no doubt be issued with its original registration number C824 NHR.

Launched in 1972, the Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 was originally fitted with Ferrari’s fabulous 4.4-litre V12 with 6 Weber carburettors producing 340bhp mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. In 1976, the 365 was replaced by the 400 Series, powered by an enlarged 310bhp, 4.8-litre, V12 which was now available with the option of a BorgWarner 3-speed automatic gearbox. At the same time in 1982, the interior was heavily revised and incorporated electronic switchgear including buttons to open the bonnet, the boot, and the fuel flaps electrically. Just 883 Automatic 400i examples were produced from 1979 to 1985, and according to online sources, 180 were in righthand drive. Copy order forms in the history file show this car was originally ordered through Maranello Concessionaires by H.R. Owen Ltd on 14th December 1983 with an automatic gearbox, Nero paintwork, Beige “Tropicale” leather, and rear air conditioning at a cost of £37,254. Handwritten notes on the copy order form appear to show it was refunded on 20th December 1983 and a handwritten name at the top states “Y. Manoukian”. A letter from the DVLA dated 16th August 2012 to a previous owner, a Mr G. Finley, states that the car was first registered on the DVLA system on the 1st February 2002.

and who converted it to a cabriolet, changed the colour and the interior, remains an intriguing mystery and very much worth further research. Nevertheless, the car has been well maintained since 2002 by Ferrari specialists Nick Cartwright and recently by Slades Garage of Buckinghamshire during our vendor’s tenure, which started on the 2nd July 2014. The car presents really well today, the red coachwork gleams, the interior sumptuously appointed in black leather is classic eighties and in great order, the Cromodoras look excellent, the hood looks fresh and the engine bay is remarkable. The odometer reading shows a shade under 9,000 miles which is not warranted. Presented to auction with a fresh MOT until January 2018, our vendor has used the car sparingly since 2014. This is one sexy, head-turning motor car and the fact that Ferrari rejected the possibility of offering a 400 Convertible smacks of a missed opportunity. We conclude that this unique conversion offers a distinct alternative to an equivalent Aston Martin V8 Volanté at a fraction of the price. Please note the car is now registered as A637 WEV.

With Jaguar’s racing pedigree with the ‘C’ and ‘D’ types from the 1950s still fresh in people’s memorie, it’s no wonder the E-Type captured the hearts and minds of everyone at its launch, and if all E-Types aged as gracefully as the car offered here then it’s easy to understand why that affection continues today. Built in 1965, this Series I car is fitted with the 4.2-litre powerplant, often considered the best engine. For the 4.2, Jaguar introduced their own all-synchromesh box, replacing the slightly demanding Moss gearbox, along with improved seating and brakes. The new box allowed faster changes and was well received in the motoring press at the time.

In 2013, the car was sent to respected coachbuilder Nigel Cooper and the bodywork was completely stripped to bare metal. The sills, boot floor, door skins, floor pans and rear wheel arches were attended to and the entire body was treated to a lovely repaint in its current colour of Dark Blue. There are pictures and bills on file documenting the restoration. In the interests of preserving as many genuine components as possible, the interior was kept largely untouched. The beautifully patinated Claret interior was preserved, along with the steering wheel and gear knob. The bodywork today presents very well indeed, with clean shut lines and very good panel fit. The engine bay is very tidy and the car sits beautifully on its painted wire wheels. Supplied with MOT Certificates dating back to the 1990s, a large number of invoices and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirming the engine block and head as matching, this Series I Roadster is ready for a new home. Prospective buyers should contact the office for further details or to arrange a pre-sale inspection.

For 1970, the C-Series 911 was introduced with a larger cylinder bore giving a capacity of 2165cc, producing 125bhp and now badged as a “T” at this power output. Alterations to suspension pick-up points improved the handling and gave a little more steering feel. Six-inch Fuchs ‘five-leaf’ forged alloys were now a standard fit. First registered on 27th July 1972, this 911T is an original, righthand drive car supplied by Porsche Cars Great Britain. It’s one of the rare “side oil fill” models, a feature that was dispensed with after only one year, as American ‘gas station’ attendants kept filling the oil tank with petrol! The car is absolutely fresh from a bare metal respray in Light Yellow (6262) and will have only covered a few road test and installation miles before the auction. Our vendors, who have rebuilt the car, are known to us for the quality of their restorations.

wheels have been refurbished and Michelin 185 x 75, VR15 XWX fitted at a cost of £256 a corner. This sparkling, newly painted, 911 will be accompanied by its Porsche Certificate of Authenicity, a comprehensive history with letters from AFN dating back to 1973, the Porsche ‘red wallet’ with the Owner’s Manual, two keys, and a fresh MOT. Early 911s possess a certain purity of line, particularly in lighter colours, a complete world away from the aerodynamic extravagances of the eighties and nineties, and in terms of style, it’s the early cars that engender the most appreciative glances. A well setup and maintained 911T, ‘E’ or ‘S’ driven with an intelligent right foot will provide some of the most quintessentially rewarding driving experiences you have ever had, and even the 125bhp 911T, for sale here, will leave you with a serious grin.

With an engine based on that of the 930 Turbo, the SC was a real gem with a strong, reliable drivetrain. The 2994cc engine produced 180bhp at launch, rising to 188bhp in 1979 and then, just one year later, to 204bhp - only 6hp shy of the output of the legendary 1973 Carrera RS! It used the same strong 5-speed 915-series gearbox as its predecessors but was the first 911 to feature servo-assisted brakes. The SC was offered as a coupé, Targa and, in late 1982 (for the ‘83 model year), as a cabriolet.

Mechanically is where this car would benefit from a little TLC. The suspension and brakes etc. are good but would benefit from a refresh after being in storage. The engine, whilst running, is not in the best of health, although the fuel injection is reported to work and the engine looks to be complete and original, but a rebuild is on the cards as the vendor informs us it sounds like the “shells are knocking”, probably because it has never been taken apart since leaving Stuttgart.

The 911SC was a very capable car, accelerating from 0-60mph in around six seconds and reaching a top speed of close to 150mph and was offered with several options, including the classic Fuchs alloy wheels. However, as time passed and the 911 evolved further, these models started to be less desirable, resulting in them becoming an accessible route into first time Porsche ownership and were not necessarily looked after properly by their impecunious new owners. Today, with the benefit of hindsight, they are seen as being properly engineered sports cars that drive well with the classic look and feel of an era that is now rightly back in fashion.

This car was originally sold in Europe and at some point ended up in the States, before being brought over to the UK around 5 years ago and stored until July 2016 when it was UK registered. A great project for the Porsche enthusiast and an ideal entry level example for those wishing to tick the 911 box.

This 911 SC has been in dry storage for the last 5 years as part of a large private collection. The bodywork is excellent, presented in its original colour of Oak Metallic Green (265), and whilst not the original paint, it’s in very good order throughout with only minor blemishes here and there. The outer panels are nice and straight with fantastic panel gaps as can be seen in the pictures. Underneath, the car looks straight and solid and even the wiring is all intact as it should be. The car sits on 7x15” ‘Cookie Cutters’ all round (not original to the car and would benefit from new tyres) with the correct 03/79 dated space saver under the hood. The interior is very well presented in green, all the carpets are in good order, as is the dashboard, and all of the instruments are reported to work as they should (speedometer is in Km/h). The windows are manually operated and there is an electric sunroof. The seats themselves are in good condition and really do complement the coachwork in a late 70s sort of way. The headlining is also in good condition although the sun visors are missing.

Originally designed as effective transport for the German masses, the Volkswagen Beetle emerged as an automotive success story after the Second World War, becoming popular throughout Europe, America and the rest of the world. As time went on, the car was improved and developed with no less than 70,000 identifiable modifications during its production run, which encompassed over 15 million vehicles globally.

time, the car moved to storage at the family home until 2006 when the Five Oaks Group closed down and the car passed to a private collector, Lester Torode. The car was shipped to England in approx. 2008 and came to our vendor in 2012 where it has remained as part of a wider collection. The car was again magazine featured in ‘Volksworld’ in the June 2009 edition (again a copy with the car).

On the 9th August 1966, Mrs Violet Winifred Hall took delivery of this one-year-old 1966, 50hp, 1300 Volkswagen Beetle from Jacksons Garage Ltd in Guernsey (part of the Five Oaks Motor Group) which her family owned. She planned to use it as her daily driver but did not drive it very much at all, and every service is detailed in the service book.

This car has never been restored, presents in broadly original condition, and the engine has enjoyed regular servicing. The interior presents very nicely indeed with the only major thing to note being a piece of beading coming away on the driver’s seat, but other than that it’s a comfortable place to be. The exterior is wonderful in its Java Green paint with straight panels and good panel fit all round.

There have been touch ups over the years and it’s worth noting that the front bumper was re-chromed around 2006 and a new rear bumper was fitted at this time also. This car really needs to be seen to be believed, as there are not many opportunities to purchase a car this original, with this mileage, and lots of history from this era.

The 360 Spider is Ferrari’s twentieth road-going convertible and was always designed with a Spider variant in mind. Since removing the roof of a coupé reduces the torsional rigidity, the 360 was built for strength in other areas and Ferrari designers strengthened the sills, stiffened the front of the floor pan, and redesigned the windscreen frame. The rear bulkhead had to be stiffened to cut out engine noise from the cabin. The convertible’s necessary dynamic rigidity is provided by additional side reinforcements and a cross brace in front of the engine. Passenger safety is ensured by a strengthened windscreen frame and roll bars. The use of light aluminium throughout results in the Spider weighing in only 60kg (130lb) heavier than the coupé.

For the 360, Ferrari partnered with Alcoa to produce an entirely new all-aluminium space frame chassis that was 40% stiffer than the F355 that it replaced. The design was 28% lighter despite a 10% increase in overall dimensions. Along with a lightweight frame, the new Pininfarina body styling dispensed with the previous decade’s sharp angles and flip-up headlights in favour of a much more modern, curvaceous outline. The new V8 engine, common to all versions, utilised a 3.6-litre capacity, flat plane crankshaft, titanium connecting rods and generates 395 bhp (294 kW, 400 PS). Despite what, on paper, look like modest gains, in reality, the power to weight ratio was significantly improved over the F355, due to the combination of both a lighter car and more power. According to Ferrari, weight was reduced by 60kg and the 0-100km/h (62mph) acceleration performance improved from 4.7 to 4.5 seconds.

transformation from a closed top to an open-air convertible is a twostage folding action that has been dubbed “a stunning 20-second mechanical symphony”. Offered on behalf of Nick Whale Sportscars Ltd, this very special lefthand drive 360 Spider F1 is finished in Grigio Titanio with Tan Leather and has covered less than 3,000 miles in total, having come from a private collection in Luxembourg. It has been stored in a meticulous manner, so much so that the car was still on the original tyres with no sign of perishing or cracking. It has had a new set of tyres fitted for this sale but the original set has been kept. It comes complete with all its original owner’s manuals and service book in the Ferrari leather book pack, an untouched toolkit in its leather holder and the original tyre inflation kit. The interior is in outstanding order with no sign of wear, the switches are all perfectly intact, the carpets and seats are pristine, and the car has a current MOT certficate. This sparkling F1 Spider was re-commissioned on the 3rd October 2014 at 4,542 kilometers by JMH Automotive, a well known Ferrari specialist. It had a full service and cambelts, a process repeated almost two years later on 30 August 2016 at 4,546 kilometres. We are confident that this extremely low mileage 360 Spider is one of the very best available to buy today.

As with the Modena version, its 3.6-litre V8 with 294 kW (400 PS; 395 bhp) is on display under a glass cover. The engine - confined in space by the convertible top’s storage area - enjoys additional cold air supply through especially large side grills. The intake manifolds were moved toward the center of the engine between the air supply conduits in the Spider’s engine compartment, as opposed to lying apart as with the Modena. In terms of performance, the 0-60 mph time was a little slower due to the slight weight increase, and the top speed was marginally reduced. Despite the car’s mid-mounted V8 engine, the electrically operated top is able to stow into the compartment when not in use. The

The ‘Series 2’ Escort RS Turbo (produced between 1986-1990) was much more approachable on the road, whereas the earlier car was, in reality, a bit of a ‘homologation special’. Many new features were adopted for the Series 2, including utilising the 1600cc, fuel-injected CVH engine from the Series 1 Turbo, now fitted with the Garret T3 turbo (water-cooled, unlike the S1), revised engine management settings, lower overall gearing, an improved gearbox and limitedslip differential, a larger clutch, improved KE Jetronic unit, and an inter-cooler. Suspension and chassis changes included stiffer front and rear springs, uprated anti-roll bars, mechanical ABS and larger brakes. The Series 2 car produced an impressive 132bhp at 5750 rpm, with maximum torque of 133 lb/ft at 2750 rpm, giving it serious performance with a top speed of 125mph and a 0-60mph time of 8.3 seconds. Although on paper, these figures were a tad down on the Series 1, the new car was considerably easier to drive quickly and, effectively, was a faster car.

Croft. Having gone as far as he could go in creating “the best Series 2 RS Turbo in the UK”, another project beckoned and Gary sold the car to a friend. The car’s next custodian was Mickey Stewart, who is a committee member of the Ford RS Owner’s Club and a passionate RS enthusiast who naturally continued to look after it before, in time, passing it on to our vendor to add to his collection.

This sparkling Black Escort RS Turbo Series 2, was delivered new by Hartford Motors of Grimsby to its first excited owner, John Richardson of Immingham on February 5th, 1988. He presumably enjoyed E771 PFU as he kept it until 2012 when the mileage was in the mid-16,000s. It was obviously his pride and joy as, towards the end of his ownership, the car was only used for special occasions but regularly MOT’d and fastidiously maintained. In fact, the MOT record shows that from July 2005, MOT Certificates were granted at 15,907, 15,974, 16,011, 16,116, 16,160, 16,242, 16,325, and in August 2012 the mileage was 16,459.

When describing a car’s condition, we are discouraged from using the words “flawless, immaculate, mint, unmarked and as good as new”, however it is difficult to describe this gleaming little RS without dipping into that bag of adjectives. Come along to the sale, bring a mirror and a magnifying glass, and form your own opinion.

The RS is accompanied by its book pack containing the fully stamped Service Record (all Ford apart from one marque specialist) showing the last oil service and MOT was carried out by Haynes of Maidstone on 11 March16 at 17,007 miles, its Owner’s Manuals, 3 keys, and a number of invoices for normal ‘wear and tear’ over the years including battery, tyres, a new fuel tank and fuel system, cam belt tensioners, suspension bushes, wiper arms etc. The indicated mileage is currently 17,048, and the car will be freshly MOT’d by the time of the sale.

The car’s second owner was Gary Jones who had been looking for some time for the best RS Turbo he could find. Although E771PFU was in splendid condition and had patently been looked after all its life, he was keen to go a little bit further and create a ‘Concours’ winner, which is exactly what he did. His attention to detail was remarkable, as evidenced by the photographs of the underneath of this remarkable RS, and he was rewarded with various accolades culminating with a top award from the RS Owner’s Club Concours at

Production of this left-hand drive, Polo Red (6802) 911’T’ was completed on the 7th January 1969, and on the 24th February 1969, it was registered at Competition Motors, the famous North Hollywood Porsche Dealership, before being delivered to its first owner Mr John Stanley Harlan with just 21 miles on the odometer. Mr Harlan was a very meticulous custodian and kept all the paperwork for each and every service up until August 1986 when the car was then safely stored away. Since then it has covered a mere 150 miles passing from John Harlans ownership to its current UK owner in September 2012 where it has been stored as part of a private collection. Sadly John Harlan passed away shortly after selling this car on 4th December 2012.

Underneath the car looks to be solid and straight and, whilst showing signs of use and obviously not restored, appears all correct and undamaged. The period paint coating retains a lovely patina except for a small patch where the brake master cylinder leaked at some point. The coachwork looks excellent with consistent panel gaps and the paintwork retains a remarkable depth of shine, particularly for a red car. The car is accompanied by its original Owner’s Manual, service book and wallet, and a number of service invoices. Effectively a one -owner car, this lovely 911T has never been restored, needs to be seen to be appreciated, and is a fantastic proposition for an astute buyer.

Matching numbers are confirmed by the Certificate of Authenticity which also lists the desirable extras fitted from new including tinted windows, antenna and loudspeakers. The car is fitted with the standard 4-speed gearbox which in itself is a rarity but is reported to be a pleasure to use. The engine retains all of its standard features and is very clean and presentable.

The BMW 502 was a luxury saloon built by BMW from 1954 until 1958, and in terms of character and style, is often regarded as the ancestor of the current 7 Series. It succeeded BMW’s first postwar car, the 501, a somewhat underpowered and uncompetitive 6-cylinder limousine. The company’s response, launched at the 1954 Geneva Motor Show, was the 502, with its V8 engine, and subtle styling changes. There were four variants offered with the 3.2-litre Super at the top of the range. The 502 was Germany’s first post-war car with a V8, but its high price of 17,450DM resulted in low sales figures, with only 190 units being sold in its first year of production, and total production of the 3.2-litre V8 variant standing at 3,865. Very few 502s were manufactured in right-hand drive, and ‘888 JMT’ is seemingly one of just twelve cars produced in this format. Our vendor purchased this rare car directly from BMW dealer Richard Cound many years ago as a road car, but during his ownership, the car has been given a competition focus. A regular in the St. Mary’s Trophy at the Goodwood Revival meeting over the years, it has been driven by many famous racing drivers including Marc Surer and Alan Jones, 1980 F1 World Champion. As is sometimes the case with racing hard around the fast flowing corners of Goodwood the original engine had a bit of a bad day and the engine currently in

the car is a period correct, 2.6 V8 that’s fresh from a rebuild, having only covered 250 miles since. Included with the car are the original block and remanufactured engine parts including pistons, liners, valves, etc, and the original engine could be re-commissioned and returned to the car ensuring originality. Our vendor runs a highly respected BMW racing team and has also run and looked after the car whilst in competition trim, so understands this classic BMW well. Before enjoying the sights and sounds of Goodwood, we understand this 1956 BMW 502 may well have been the original Earls Court Motorshow car, which given how the original buff log book (which accompanies the car) shows AFN Ltd as the first keeper, could well have been the case. Accompanying that original log book are a variety of previous MoTs and a letter from a previous owner in 1975 going through various details such as parts included and registration documents. This rare and special car offers unique access to the glamour of Goodwood, whilst remaining a rare and stylish road car with lots of provenance.

In 2002, a new variant of the DB7 was launched, named the V12 GT or GTA when equipped with automatic transmission. Its V12 engine produced 435 bhp and 410 lb·ft of torque in the manual car, although the automatic GTA retained the 420 bhp and 400 lb·ft of torque of the standard DB7 Vantage. Additionally, the GT and GTA chassis had substantially uprated suspension from the DB7 Vantage models, The tub was stiffened by 20% and special attention was paid to the aerodynamic balance with the adoption of additional sweeps for the undertray, wheel arch liner extensions and a revised boot lid spoiler which enhanced the new look. These additions helped to reduce lift by almost 50%. Aesthetically, compared to the Vantage, it has a mesh front grille, vents in the bonnet, a boot spoiler, an aluminium gear lever, optional carbon fibre trim and new wheels. It also has 355 mm front and 330 mm rear vented disc brakes made by Brembo. Production of the GT and GTA was extremely limited, as only 190 GTs and 112 GTAs were produced worldwide. This is a desirable manual, right-hand drive, DB7 GT that has covered just over 68,000 miles from new. Our vendor has owned

this car since 2006 after purchasing it from Charles Hurst Ltd in February of that year and has cherished it ever since. Indeed, he’s recently spent over £10k on getting the car up to his exacting standards having not covered much relative mileage over the past couple of years. Genuine Aston parts were used and he replaced all oils and fluids, front and rear discs plus pads, refurbished the wheels, along with fitting a new set of tyres, wipers and battery. The water pump was replaced along with the power steering pump, all belts, spark plugs and ignition coils along with all injector seals and complete vacuum pipe rubbers. Whilst our vendor was using this DB7 GT as his daily driver, Aston ‘Works Service’ carried out services as per the schedule and the last warranty claim was completed by Works service including new shocks, engine mounts, rear radius arms, and resulted in a hefty £7K bill. A striking, well-maintained, example of a rare Aston. N.B. The personal number plate (13 RAS) does not form part of the sale and has been transferred. New registration number TBA.

Designing a successor to the delicious Lamborghini Miura was something of a challenge for Marcello Gandini, however with the arrival of the ‘Countach’ in 1971, he demonstrated to the world that his ability to create automotive drama was alive and well. In fact, the word ‘Countach’ is Piedmontese slang for something that visually shocks and has no direct translation, but ‘wow’ is probably the most polite. The first Countach appeared at the Geneva Show in 1971- the same year that ‘Hot Pants’ appeared on our city streets - with a similar ability to distract. Big, bright and brash like the rest of the 70s, the Countach was to remain in production, through various iterations, for 15 years. With hindsight, it’s clear that the car’s ‘flying wedge’ design, with a sloping snout that appeared to descend directly from the windscreen, and innovative ‘scissor doors’, became a template for every supercar that followed. The original, beautifully clean profile was gradually bedecked with ‘wings and things’ as fashions changed over the years, and frequent small mechanical changes were often the result of customer input in their capacity as unwitting ‘development engineers’. In 1977, the first major update of the Countach, the LP400S, was prompted by the arrival of Pirelli’s P7 tyre, which, when mounted on cast alloy Campagnolo Bravo rims (15x8.5” and 15x12”) dramatically improved the car’s dynamics. The surrounding bodywork, arches and spoilers all grew in size and drama. With the new wheels came larger (11”) discs and shock absorbers, and the suspension geometry was redesigned to suit. Power and torque from the 3,929cc, V12 were increased (370 bhp/ 9,500 rpm and 267lbft/ 5,500 rpm) and a rear wing, which was about the size of Wales, was a $5,000 optional extra. It’s not a secret that the wing added weight and drag and did nothing for downforce but, hey, if you’ve got it flaunt it. The Countach’s potentially largest market - the USA - remained closed to it until the arrival of the ‘emissions friendly’ LP500S in 1982. Although no more powerful than before, the newcomer’s

Race Retro Competition & Classic Car Sale

4,754cc engine brought with it a useful increase in torque. The final development saw the engine enlarged to 5,167cc and new ‘fourvalves-per-cylinder’ heads adopted for the Countach Quattrovalvole in 1985, the latter’s 300km/h (186mph) top speed making it – at the time - the world’s fastest car. This is a rare, right-hand drive, UK-delivered LP500S, of which only 25 were made. Chassis number ‘12550’ was tested by ‘Car’ magazine whilst it was owned by racing driver, demolition contractor, Lamborghini aficionado, and colourful character, Barry Robinson, and carried the registration ‘BR 33’. A copy of the article, which appeared in Car’s April 1984 edition, is with the car. The Lamborghini’s first owner, Robinson, had had the engine blueprinted, its output being estimated by the factory at around 425bhp, some 50 horsepower more than standard. On the 15th of October 1983, Barry Robinson and his co-driver, the articulate and urbane, Alex Postan set a series of twelve British speed and endurance records for production cars with this Countach, lapping Vauxhall’s Millbrook test track at 180mph for extended periods. This car was acquired by its present keeper in mid-2014 and we understand that it had been in storage for the previous 10 years, and there are one or two invoices in the file from that period. Since his purchase in July 2014, our vendor has invested heavily in returning this Lamborghini to the glorious condition in which you find it today. There are a number of invoices relating to remedying minor mechanical ailments, new door glass and windscreen, tyres, battery etc. and in June 2016 the car was treated to a glass-out / trim-out respray. All these detailed invoices are in the car’s history file, along with the MOT certificate, magazine articles, manuals and service records, and information about the RAC Speed Records. This fabulous LP500S has a lot going for it; it is one of only 25 or possibly fewer, it’s in stunning condition, having been spared no expense during the last two years, and it was the holder of 12 British Outright Speed records in 1983. A unique opportunity.

Porsche produced the 911E from 1969 to 1973 and it was designed to be the most comfortable and drivable of the 911 range, fitting neatly between the 911T (Touring) and the 911S (Super). The designation ‘E’ came from the German for injection: Einspritzung. The mechanical fuel injection system (MFI) was developed jointly by Bosch and Porsche to be used on the 911E and the 911S and resulted in more power, better drivability, and a cleaner running engine. The 911E’s interior had a few more comfort features, better brakes and a distinctive gold script on the engine cover. This particular 1973 911E 2.4 was supplied new by Concours Porsche-Audi Inc. of St Louis, Missouri, to state resident Mr Melvin Walker of Florissant. Finished in Silver Metallic with a black leatherette and basketweave interior, the car was supplied with options including: sports seats, tinted windows and a leather steering wheel. The original service book accompanying the history file shows stamps from the supplying dealer when the car was but a year old, at which point Mr Walker had covered 35,835 miles. At some stage, the car passed to a Mr Lawrence Ruzicaka during the 1980s and an invoice for an engine rebuild at that time included new pistons and bearings, carried out by Frontier Automotive of Illinois. In 2000, popular Stateside Porsche forum ‘R-Gruppe’ member Tom Morgan of North Carolina bought the car. It was under Mr Morgan’s stewardship over a number of years that the car was to be the beneficiary of some attention including body repairs, a full bare-metal respray, a new headling, a Mocal oil-cooler, a rebuild of the engine to 911 ‘S’ specification (whilst retaining the original crankcases), a gearbox rebuild and a host of other work. A whole folder of bills, photographs and a CD containing further images pays testament to Mr Morgan’s caring ownership and his vision of creating a reliable, fast and usable all-rounder 911E. The car was then purchased in 2009 by a fastidious UK R-Gruppe member known to Silverstone Auctions, who imported the car to the UK and registered it with the DVLA. Interestingly, the purchaser then sold this 911E in 2011 to our vendor, to fund a long-term Porsche

project – a 904-6 Carrera GTS replica which in November 2014, Silverstone Auctions went on to sell for £146,000 at the NEC Classic Car Show! Our vendor, himself a serial Porsche 911 owner and motorsport enthusiast, was looking for something a little special and this car was too good to resist. His intention was to use the car for occasional hillclimbs and sprints whilst maintaining its touring capabilities. In 2012 the car was sent to marque specialist, ‘Ninemeister’ where the rear suspension was stripped and rebuilt, the engine and gearbox were both removed to rectify an oil leak, reset all valve clearance and a host of other remedial jobs, resulting in an invoice for £5,400. In 2015 the car was sent to another marque specialist, Gantspeed Engineering, where the transmission was partly dismantled and fully inspected before some components were replaced and the unit reassembled. In early 2016, our vendor decided to undertake a full engine rebuild using the expertise of Gantspeed, and upon completion, had the car tuned and rolling-road tested at Lambs in Chesterfield, where it was recorded producing 200 bhp at the flywheel. Another whole folder of invoices whilst the car has been in the UK accompanies the sale of the car with more than £20,000 having been spent in the care of our vendor to ensure that this special 911E performs at its best. Aesthetically pleasing Rennsport Safari seats and RS door cards have been fitted to give the interior a comfortable, but minimalist period feel. Supplied with a UK V5C, Certificates of Authenticity, an MOT until January ‘18 and a bulging history file, this is a highly useable and well sorted 911E, retaining its original engine, which has now been rebuilt and tweaked to perfection! With its sibling, the 911S, still commanding premium prices, this 911E represents a great alternative and is the perfect drivers’ Porsche that will reward close inspection.

Unveiled in October 1967, the DBS was the successor to the famed Aston Martin DB6, although the two ran concurrently for three years. Designed in-house by William Towns, the aluminium-bodied four-seater had a sharper appearance than the curvaceous DB6 but still exuded similar road presence. Longer, wider and more luxurious than the DB6, the DBS employed a platform-type chassis with independent suspension all round and offered a near perfect 50:50 weight distribution with better high-speed stability. Originally designed to accept an all-new V8 engine that had recently surfaced in racing Lolas that year, the V8 unit was not ready in time for the car’s launch, so it was fitted with the legendary, Tadek Marekdesigned, 4.0-litre, DB6 engine instead. This twin-cam engine was available in standard or Vantage tune - the latter producing 325bhp at 5,750rpm with triple Webers and hotter cams. In its road test of a DBS Vantage, Motor recorded 141mph with 0-60 and 0-l00mph reached in 7.1 and 18.0 seconds respectively. Production of the DBS stretched between September 1967 and April 1972, during which time only 68 RHD Vantage examples were produced, making the DBS 6 Vantage the lowest production Vantage model of all Aston Martins. Continuing Aston’s famed 007 connections,

the DBS was used by George Lazenby’s James Bond in the 1969 film ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’. A factory build sheet confirms that this genuine matching numbers DBS Vantage was delivered new to Dorking, Surrey with the registration D111 and the factory guarantee was issued on 14th October 1970. Finished in the very same original Olive Green as used by James Bond, and with complete factory Fawn interior, this car is presented in very original condition. The matching numbers, Vantage engine is reported to run very well, demonstrating good compressions and performance. A recent specialist service included installation of a new ‘Luminition’ ignition system, brake service, carb rebuild and full dyno-tuning on the rolling road. DBS values have been overshadowed by DB4/5/6 prices of late, however many believe this understated little brother is long overdue an increase in both demand and value. The car is supported by two exemplary history files, containing a chronologically-filed service history dating back to the 1980s, a full list of past ownership correspondence and registration documents, owner’s manuals, past MOTs and the original build data.

With Jaguar’s racing successes in the 1950s still fresh in the memory, it’s no wonder the E-Type captured the hearts and minds of a patriotic public at launch, and if all E-Types aged as gracefully as the car offered here, then it’s easy to understand why that affection continues today. The Series I, as it later became known, was introduced, initially for export only, in March 1961, and UK cars began to appear in showrooms some four months later in early July. The cars were initially fitted with the triple SU carburetted, 3.8-litre, six-cylinder Jaguar XK6 engine from the XK150S mated to a Moss (EB) 4-speed gearbox. This stunning, left-hand drive Jaguar E-Type was supplied new in Opalescent Silver Blue with Dark Blue interior on 3rd July 1964. According to the Heritage Certificate, the car was delivered to Jaguar Cars, New York and subsequently registered to a Mr A.E. Erickson of Mercer Island, Washington. In March 1976, a registration certificate was issued in the dry state of Arizona, which is where this car remained until it was brought to the UK in 2004. This example was then purchased by our vendor in March 2007 as a complete and very original restoration project. A painstaking rebuild began in earnest and the restoration was carried out over a four-year

Race Retro Competition & Classic Car Sale

period by our vendor, his mechanic and a number of specialists. There are a large number of bills and receipts in the history file for parts purchased. The car has covered a negligible mileage since it was restored and is presented today in superb condition. The panel fit is excellent, the bodywork has been finished to a very high standard, and the paintwork retains a good shine. The interior was completely retrimmed in Italian leather and the engine bay has been beautifully detailed. The engine block and head match the Heritage Certificate and the vendor will have the car taken to Jaguar specialists Lanes Cars prior to the auction, where it will be serviced and a condition report prepared. This will be available to prospective buyers before the auction. This Jaguar E-Type is supplied with a current UK Registration Certificate and copies of its previous Arizona title. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find an E-Type restored to this level and yet retaining its original feel and its original colour combination. We welcome all pre-sale inspections, and bidders should contact the office for further details and a copy of the aforementioned condition report.

The Ferrari F355 is a modern classic; so beautiful, so well-engineered and so well received that it marked the beginning of the end of the oldguard ‘Ferraristi’ philosophy that the only “real” Ferraris were ones with 12-cylinder engines. The Ferrari F355 Berlinetta and Targa GTS burst onto the world stage in the spring of 1994. It had almost exactly the same dimensions as its predecessor the 348, yet it was virtually a new car, as its stunning coachwork indicated. Many hours of wind tunnel testing influenced the harmonious shape which incorporated an F1 style flat bottom with an air flow channel that generated enough downforce to offset any lift. The longitudinally-mounted 3496cc V8 had a stunning 380 horsepower at a spine-tingling 8,250 rpm. The gearbox now had six speeds with a new type of synchromesh that made it much easier to shift. New electronically-adjustable shock absorbers varied their stiffness within milliseconds to suit the road surface. Around Ferrari’s 1.86 mile Fiorano test track, the 355 was two seconds a lap faster than the 12-cylinder 512 TR and that level of performance combined with its sensational shape made it a worldwide success story. From the same home as the flared arch Ferrari Dino 246 GT in this sale, we are delighted to also offer this manual Ferrari F355 Berlinetta for the first time ever. Supplied new to our vendor by Mortimer Houghton Turner Ltd on 20th March 1998, this stunning, right-hand

Another invoice in the file from Dick Lovett Swindon in 2008 shows the car received some maintenance and rectification work totalling £2,984. They were entrusted with the 355 again in 2010, and on this occasion, the air-conditioning compressor was overhauled and the car was fully detailed.  Having covered minimal mileage in the last few years, we would strongly recommend to prospective purchasers of this car that it be sent for a full service including fresh fluids, belts and filters as a minimum requirement before venturing out onto the roads.  Supplied with an MOT until 14th October ‘17, a full tool kit, tyre inflator, bespoke car cover, and leather book pack containing all the relevant manuals, this stunning F355 Berlinetta is now indicating what we believe to be a genuine 7,017 miles. Rarely do single-ownership examples of one of Pininfarina’s finest designs in such excellent condition come to market, and this one will certainly not disappoint.

Whoever he was, we assume his initials were RCW, and he kept the car until 11th August 1972, when it was bought by a Mr Raymond Knight of Exeter. Remaining in the county, the car changed hands on the 30th of September, 1977 to become the pride and joy of Adrian Harris, again of Exeter, who kept the car for a further nine years before it crossed the border into Somerset and into the custodianship of Peter Kerr of Bridgwater in September 1987. Mr. Kerr was to keep the car for twenty-one years, only covering 500 miles in the last 18 years of his ownership. On the 1st October 2008, a Mrs Angela Greenwood of Bristol bought the car, keeping it until 21st March 2013, when it moved to our vendor’s house in Bath.

There have been volumes written about the Jaguar E-Type, indeed there is no other British car, apart from perhaps the Mini, that has generated such a cult following. So it’s probably more appropriate to concentrate on the many merits of this exceptional E-Type Fixed Head Coupé on offer today.

1963 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Fixed Head Coupé

Having travelled less than 5,000 miles in thirty-eight years, and now showing a shade under 69,000 miles, our vendor decided to undertake a meticulous mechanical and body restoration. Included within the extensive renovation were new prop shafts, rebuilt suspension, uprated brakes, an engine rebuild, and the gearbox was changed to a Getrag 5-speed T5 to enhance driveability. These works were complemented by a fresh coat of paint in period Opalescent Dark Grey and this lovely Jaguar was rejuvenated at a cost (we understand) of some £45,000. Superbly presented today, the car is in possession of a fresh MOT, a super history file that includes the restoration invoices, and will be accompanied by the original Moss Box, EB 12731 JS (which will need recommissioning), to allay any concerns about a lack of originality. The car has been reluctantly offered for sale by our vendor, as his substantial collection of Rolls and Bentleys means that the E-Type has only been driven a handful of times in four years. To conclude, it is our pleasure to offer an early E-Type that is now ready to be enjoyed this Spring by its lucky new owner.

The Porsche 930 Turbo was a genuine ‘supercar’ that defined the Seventies and Eighties, and was one of the fastest production cars available at the time. It was first seen at the 1973 Paris Auto Show and full production commenced two years later. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7RS, which was increased to 3.-litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gained from Porsche’s 917/30 Can-Am program. The bodywork received special treatment resulting in one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear whale-tail and the brakes came directly from the Porsche 917 race car. This UK-supplied, 930 Turbo was delivered by Charles Follett Ltd. to a Mr Peter Swift on the 6th February 1980. Presented in Grand Prix White with Black leather sports seats, this iconic 80’s supercar has only covered 39,600 miles since that date and has been in our vendor’s possession since 2001.

latest stamp in the service book comes from Porsche specialists ‘Strasse’ in June of last year. Our vendor spent over £4,000 at this time to bring the car completely up to date and ready to go. AETTurbos reconditioned the turbos while the Prestige Bodyshop in Barnsley sorted a few minor paint blemishes on the front bumper. Strasse finished the work with a regular service and the car has covered little mileage since. Indeed, this car really is our vendor’s pride and joy and he has patently looked after it with the love and care it deserves. The car is accompanied by an MOT until June 2017 and some trophies from past ‘Porsche In The Park’ Concours events in the early 2000s. Topical, honest and very presentable, this 930 Turbo looks like an exciting proposition, especially taking into account the fast-growing 80’s turbo Porsche market – don’t miss out!

The specification includes a four-speed manual gearbox, electric windows, electric mirrors, electric sunroof, air-conditioning, Pirelli tyres all round, and the original tool kit is present. The car comes with a good service history and the original service book with many stamps present from various Porsche Specialists over the years. The

1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GT

The Ferrari Dino was built to honour Alfredo ‘Dino’ Ferrari, who died of muscular dystrophy in 1956. He was the only legitimate son of ‘Il Commendatore’, and unlike any previous road-going Ferrari, the Dino utilised a V6 engine (Tipo 156) which Alfredo himself had developed and advocated during his lifetime. Enzo Ferrari vehemently answered his critics when he said: “For reasons of mechanical efficiency he finally came to the conclusion that the engine should be a V6 and we accept his decision.” The acceptance of this decision resulted in a legacy of motor sport orientated derivatives from Formula One through to various famous sports car racing applications. Following this continued success on the track and in order to homologate Ferrari’s 1966 Formula Two campaign, a new line of mid-engined production V6 coupés with Fiat running gear went on sale in 1967 in two-litre form. However, in 1969 a larger 2.4-litre Dino was introduced, named the 246 GT or GTS in the case of the Spider. The voluptuous bodywork, which many people regard as the prettiest ever to grace a road-going Ferrari, was designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti. It covered a tubular chassis which carried wishbone independent suspension at each corner. The compact four-cam engine, which delivered 190bhp, was mounted transversely above the five-speed gearbox and just ahead of the rear axle, allowing for both a comfortable cockpit and some usable boot space. Proving a great sales success, production of the Dino 246 finished in 1974 with 2,487 GTs and 1,274 GTS models. We are delighted to be able to offer this exquisite, UK right-hand drive, 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GT for the first time in 22 years. Chassis #07336 was finished in Rosso Chiaro with a black vinyl interior and was ordered with incredibly rare and desirable flared wheel arches and stove-enamelled wide Campagnolo wheels. The car was first registered to Axon Armature Manufacturing Co. Ltd on 13th June 1974, and an original letter included in the file from the Birmingham-based firm states that the car was owned by

them until the early summer of 1977. The car then made its way to Germany briefly for a couple of months, before being sold to a Mr M. J. Willoughby of Lytham St Annes on 30th June 1977. An MOT dated 4th July 1977 shows that the car had by that time covered 10,221 miles. A resumé by Mr Willoughby of his ownership declares that he was quite often abroad, and as a result, the Dino was driven infrequently. Servicing during this period of ownership was carried out by an ex-Maserati mechanic and Italian car specialists Blakey & White of St Annes. The next owner of chassis #07336 was a Mr J. Fazackerley of Leigh, Lancashire, who purchased the car, we believe, in 1980. An invoice from GrayPaul Motors Ltd on 1st October 1982 details a carburettor rebuild to cure an engine misfire, de-glazing of brakes discs and other remedial jobs. The mileage logged at this time shows the car had covered 16,621 miles and a thorough road-test by the aforementioned dealer resulted in a fine bill of health and a new MOT on 14th October at 16,720 miles. A Mr J. Wilson of Chester became the next custodian of this stunning car in late 1982 with the majority of maintenance duties during his ownership being carried out by Graypaul Motors Ltd, for which there are numerous invoices in the file. An MOT issued on 1st June 1985 records the mileage at 23,600 miles. In April 1986, chassis #07336 became the property of renowned Ferrari collector, Mr Brandon Wang and under his ownership in 1989 the car was sent to respected Ferrari specialist Nick Cartwright where it was treated to a full detail of the engine bay, re-coated manifolds, fluids changed and the cooling system refurbished. After 7 years of ownership, the car was sold at the end of 1993 to Mortimer Houghton Turner Ltd. An internally raised workshop invoice shows the car was thoroughly checked over in March 1994 and Daytona-style seats were fitted at this time, before eventually being sold on 27th January 1995 to our vendor, when it had covered just over 30,500 miles.

Cherished and used on ‘high days and holidays’ only, our vendor eventually decided to send the car back to Ferrari specialist Nick Cartwright. In March 2014, work commenced removing all brightwork, glass, ancillaries, brakes and suspension. The engine, gearbox and petrol tanks were also removed along with all of the interior including the dashboard, leaving only the wiring loom in place. A bill for £7,693 is included in the file for this stage of the refurbishment.

Originally supplied with flared wheel arches and Campagnolo wheels, one of only 13 in the UK, the addition of Daytona seats makes this 246 GT the ultimate Dino specification, what Ferraristas call ‘Chairs and Flares’. Rarely do well-documented cars of this quality come to market and we are proud to offer this beautiful example which is now ready to begin the next chapter of its life after 22 years of enjoyment by our vendor.

The chassis and outriggers were freed of all underseal, surface rust, and treated before being etch primed. Corrosion was cut out where necessary and new tube welded into place and the chassis section around the engine bay received the same treatment. The doors were removed and corroded lower sections cut out before new meta was ‘wheeled up’ and lower door skin sections folded and welded into place. The rest of the body was masked up in preparation for a full repaint. At this stage in the process the brake calipers were stripped and rebuilt, the carburettors and other engine ancillaries removed and the engine and gearbox casing chemically cleaned and painted replacing all components ready for reinstallation. An invoice for £20,131 details this stage of the work undertaken. By June 2015 the car was being reassembled with fully rebuilt suspension using new Koni shock absorbers, a fully overhauled braking system and reinstallation of the detailed engine and gearbox. The dashboard was recovered in original ‘mouse hair’ material and the wiring harness checked before being fully refitted. Once chassis #07336 was back on its Campagnolo wheels, the engine was tuned and given a full service renewing all fluids and filters. The car was fully valeted and MOT tested on 23rd June 2015 at 34,558 miles before the keys were handed back. There is a final invoice of £40,696 for the re-assembly and restoration of the car. Supplied with 29 previous MOT Certificates, beginning in 1977 and currently tested until 22nd June 2017, this car is now showing only 34,935 miles, which we believe to be the correct distance covered in its 43 years. A complete toolkit and jack accompany the car, as well as a Ferrari Warranty Booklet, Dino Owner’s Manual and a UK V5C.

In 1978, Porsche introduced their new version of the 911, called the ‘911 SC’, and it featured a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. Originally, power output was 180bhp, later 188bhp and by 1981 it had increased to 204bhp. Built on 1st September 1978, this 911 SC was later sold by Al Veale Porsche/Audi Specialists in Santa Rosa, California to a Mr. Hughes in early 1990. Mr Hughes cherished the car until early 2001 (186,000 miles), at which point it was imported into the UK where it was registered to Karman Ghia Motor Works in March 2001 and they sold it to Mark Sutherland-Gray in April 2001 who in turn sold it to Lynda & Roy Caitlin (Autotronics Developments) in June of 2004. In November of 2005, it then passed to Timothy Gathercole and has been in its current ownership since March 2012. The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity lists all the options added to this car from new; Fuchs wheels (6” and 7”) still adorn the car in very good order, the US-spec headlamp rings were colour coded (with the car although European spec lights fitted), sports steering wheel, centre console, power windows, electric passenger mirror, sports seats (brown leather with perforated inlays), electric antenna, black roof liner, rear speakers, rectangular front fog lights, sliding roof.

of both units; the Californian-spec air pumps for the emissions have been removed but are with the car, as are most of the aircon parts. Since being imported to the UK, this SC has covered a mere 11k miles and has been serviced numerous times. The bodywork looks straight with no obvious signs of damage, and whilst the paintwork is not original, it is the correct colour and a high standard. The internals do not look to have been painted, still having the original stickers in the door shuts and engine bay. Moving inside the car, it is obvious that the seats require some remedial work; the driving seat having some cracks to the leather, however everything works as it should and the remainder of the Cocoa trim is in fine order. Generally, this car is very clean and has obviously been a cherished vehicle throughout its life. You would be hard pushed to find a better ‘unrestored’ car at this guide price.

The colour of this car is listed as ‘colour to sample’ on the COA but the paint code plaque lists it as ‘132’, which is Medium Ivory. This vehicle has been in dry storage since 2012 with the current owner and will be sold with a full 12 months MOT. There is UK MOT History going back to 2003 to verify mileage from that year and there is also some service history from the USA going up to 1990 at 93,423 miles. There is a letter from previous owner Mr Hughes, written in 2007 and detailing works carried out during his ownership telling us that the original gearbox was rebuilt along with the clutch, and the engine was rebuilt with new hydraulic tensioners at approx 176,000 miles. Currently, the mileage shown is 197,000. The car itself is in good order with the engine and gearbox having only covered 20k since a full rebuild

Begun in 1961, ‘Project S’ emerged from Citroën’s requirement to develop a sports variant of the revolutionary DS. As was customary for the quirky French firm, many running concept vehicles were developed with increasingly complex and upmarket features to differentiate the ‘sports’ project from the popular DS.

1973 Citroën SMi Maserati

Although no paperwork is present with the car, it would appear that it has been well maintained throughout its life particularly by our vendor. He tells us that “it’s in good working order with the suspension system working correctly”.

The acquisition of Maserati by Citroën in 1968 was motivated by the possibility of harnessing Maserati’s high-performance engine technology to produce a true Grand Tourer, combining the sophisticated Citroën suspension with the power of a Maserati V6.

Looking splendid in its Gold paintwork, the exterior is generally in good condition with the only noteworthy marks being a scuff on the passenger door and some localised paint blistering on the driver’s front wing and door. Much like the exterior, the leather interior is in good condition with only a few small marks and signs of wear.

The result was the Citroën SM, which was first shown to rapturous appreciation at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970. It went on sale in France in September of that year in left-hand drive only, although right-hand drive conversions were later offered in the UK and Australia. The SM was Citroën’s flagship vehicle, competing with other high-performance GTs of the time from manufacturers such as Jaguar, Lotus, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Alfa Romeo and Porsche.

Unfortunately, some of his other SM’s are proving a bit more demanding and this car is now being offered for sale. This exciting and rare piece of French exotica is now seeking a new owner to enjoy her over the spring and summer months. A great usable and well turned out example that is sure to turn heads no matter where you are, be it at a car show, your local high street, or just in the pub car park.

This 1973 SM is a rare and desirable Electronic-Injection example and was sourced and imported from Switzerland in February 2016, after much searching by our vendor who is a prolific Citroën SM collector.

With the 3500 GT nearing the end of its successful run, Maserati entrusted to Pietro Frua the task of designing a new two-seater coupé, based on the Tipo 109 chassis. So was born the Mistral, the first in a series a classic Maseratis to be given the name of a legendary wind and the last model from the Casa del Tridente to be equipped with a straight six cylinder engine before Maserati moved on to V8 engines for their production cars. Frua’s new creation, originally named the ‘Due Posti’ (two seats), was first shown in a preview at the Salone Internazionale dell’Automobile di Torino in November 1963. This classic Italian ‘GranTurismo’ entered production in 1964 and remained so until 1970. The seven years of production was proof of the beauty and originality of its design and is, in the view of many, the most beautiful body to come from Pietro Frua of Turin. It was at the suggestion of Col. Simone, the French Maserati Concessionaire, that the Due Posti should be renamed ‘Mistral’.

counting his own hands-on involvement, the receipts added up to around £45,000, a serious amount considering this did not include any labour. Completed in 2015 and supplied with an MOT Certificate until May 2017, the car presents very well today. The paintwork is not perfect but is very presentable, the interior has been kept largely original, and the engine bay looks superb and has been detailed and finished to a high standard, The car has covered a gentle 2,500 miles since it was finished. A copy of the previous registration details confirms just three registered keepers from new. We welcome pre-sale inspections and encourage prospective bidders to contact the office for further details. This incredibly rare Maserati is ready for a new home and offers exclusivity, performance, and excellent value, especially when compared with Aston Martins and Ferraris from the same era.

The engine was a direct descendent of the 6-cylinder unit mounted in the Tipo 350S sports racer and boasted a close relationship with the engine that powered the Tipo 250F F1 single-seater, driven by Manuel Fangio, to Maserati’s one and only F1 World Championship in 1957. Mistral engines evolved throughout its production life from 3,500cc to 3,700cc and then to 4,000cc. In total, just 828 Mistral Coupés were manufactured and of these, a very small percentage were delivered in right-hand drive form. This stunning and extremely rare, UK-supplied example was first registered on 14th October 1965 to a Mr James Alistair Todd of Marlborough. It remained with its first owner until 1989 and had just one additional owner until it was purchased by our vendor in 2008. Himself a skilled engineer, the car was then stripped and sympathetically restored over a seven-year period. The bodywork was painted and the engine was fully rebuilt with help and parts from Bill McGrath-Maserati. There are a number of invoices in the history file from Bill and other suppliers.

In Ford Motor Company’s long and hugely successful history, few events are as memorable and as important as the GT40’s four consecutive overall victories at Le Mans. The impetus to build Le Mans cars to compete with Ferrari undoubtedly stemmed from their failed attempt to acquire the Modena firm, and an understandably frustrated Ford enlisted Carroll Shelby and others to build a racing car with one mission: to beat Ferrari at Le Mans. With their goals set high, the GT40 became the most iconic and successful underdog in Le Mans history. Arriving in prototype form just in time for Ford’s centennial celebration in 2003, the new Ford GT borrowed heavily from the stunning design and profile of the GT40 and set out on a similar mission: to compete with – and surpass – the established ‘supercars’.

Purchased by our vendor in 2011, this Ford GT is finished in the evocative colour combination of white with blue racing stripes. Reading 8,350 miles, the service history consists of stamps and invoices from ‘Mountune’ and two services by Ford GT experts ‘GT101’. Prior to the auction it will be delivered to GT101 for a fresh service and check over. Prospective bidders are welcome to contact the office to arrange early viewings on this incredibly special car. The Ford GT is part of a rare class of modern cars that instantly become collectable, and have become more and more sought after. Given its inimitable heritage, prolific performance, stunning design, and thrilling driving experience, the Ford GT is a very special creation that will undoubtedly be revered for many years to come.

The ultra-high performance Ford GT showcases the finest in advanced technologies, constructed on a lightweight aluminum chassis clothed in superplastic-formed lightweight composite and aluminum body panels. Powered by a mid-mounted, hand-built, supercharged quad-cam 550bhp V8 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transaxle and featuring racing-derived suspension and braking systems, the GT delivers astounding power and performance. With this prolific power, the Ford GT will accelerate from 0-60 in about 3.5 seconds, hurtling on to some 205mph before the speed limiter kicks in. When production ceased in 2006, with just over 4,000 Ford GTs produced and only 101 delivered new to Europe, this epic Ford had made its mark on automotive history once again - and became an instant collector’s car. This very special Ford GT was one of five European supplied vehicles that were marked VIP by the Ford National Sales Company. Ford of Britain then allocated this vehicle to F1 world champion Jenson Button, MBE in May 2005, and he took delivery through Swiss Ford GT dealer Grimm in Geneva in August 2005. The car was first UK-registered in 2006 and supplied with the history file are copies of the order form signed by Mr Button.

Front-engined V12 Ferrari Grand Tourers have always been the stuff of legend since the days of the original 365 GTB/4 Daytona back in the early 1970s. This evolution has included the famous 456 model which was superseded in July 1996 by the Pininfarina designed 550 Maranello. Displacing 5,500cc, and built in Maranello, the 478 bhp engine powered a rear-wheel drive, front-engined car, with a rear ‘transaxle’ layout. All of this, when combined with the tubular steel space frame chassis, aluminium body panels, and double wishbone suspension, resulted in a superb drivers car!

Rosso, Bordeaux carpets and a ‘WSR’ plaque.

The Ferrari 550 also enjoyed a great amount of success on racing circuits, often in collaboration with Prodrive. In October 1998, Ferrari sent a lightly modified version to a 12-kilometre oval test track in Columbus, Ohio and set three new world records as follows: - Covering 100 miles at an average speed of 190.2mph. - Driving for one hour at an average speed of 184mph. - Covering 100 kilometres at 188.9mph.

Purchased by our vendor in 2005, the car has formed part of his collection ever since and he informs us it has been regularly serviced by his private mechanic. Now having covered just 33,800 miles, the car will be sent to Ferrari specialist Terry Keys at Silverstone prior to the auction, where a full service and MOT will be carried out and an independent condition report will be made available to prospective buyers.

To celebrate these records, Ferrari built 33 road cars to the exact specification of the record-setting car. The differences over the standard car were the Fiorano handling pack, leather trimmed roll cage, suede-covered steering wheel, and carbon bucket seats with Daytona stitching and race harnesses. Other changes included the Scuderia wing shields, throaty sports exhaust, brake calipers in

Supplied with the correct wallet, manuals and service book, we are delighted to offer this exceptionally rare right-hand drive ‘WSR’ to public auction for the first time in its life. We welcome pre-sale inspections and buyers should contact the office for early viewings. This beautiful 550 Maranello opens the door into a very exclusive club and represents an exciting opportunity for any collector.

The 356 is acknowledged as Porsche’s first venture into production and was a lightweight and nimble, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive, two-door sporting car available in hardtop coupé and open configurations. Engineering and design innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsport’s success and its popularity as a road car. Porsche continued to develop and refine the 356 with a focus on performance, and by the late 1950s fewer parts were shared with its pedestrian cousin, the Beetle, and increasing success in competition and its availability worldwide resulted in the distinctive little car, in all its iterations, finding over 76,000 homes between 1948 and 1966. Today, the Porsche 356 is a highly regarded collector’s car. This 356 B is a very early, left-hand drive T5, first delivered to the USA in April 1960. Originally finished in Ivory White with Red leatherette, the colour combination at some point was changed to Vermillion Red with a Tan leather interior.

carry out a few improvements this year, however, an ever-expanding collection has meant that it must now be offered for sale. The car comes with a small history file, with invoices totalling almost $2,500 relating to expenditure in 2015 which appears to document maintenance work on the car including re-commissioning of the brakes, wheel cylinders and setting up the carburettors. Currently unregistered, the car has a NOVA Certificate stating that all due taxes have been paid and an application to register the car can be made with the, all important, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity present, to assist the registration process. The world of early Porsches is a complex one, but this 356B is absolutely straightforward and is a super example of the desirable 356B T5. It’s in very good all round condition and would be even better with a bit of detailing, however it’s a totally usable early sixties Classic Porsche and would be welcome anywhere.

When launched to an eager public in 1961, the new E-Type Jaguar was available in either Open Two Seater (OTS) or two-seat Fixed Head Coupé (FHC) formats, the latter having a useful opening rear door, giving access to the ample luggage compartment. By the mid-1960s, the high demand for the car prompted Jaguar to offer a third option, for the driver with a young family, in the form of a 2+2 coupé. By adding nine inches to the wheelbase and two inches in height, it was then possible to fit a rear seat capable of seating two adults in tolerable comfort and perfect for children. The longer wheelbase also had the added benefit of allowing Jaguar to mate a Borg-Warner automatic transmission to the 4.2-litre engine, thereby further widening the appeal of the E-type.

going back to 1980, and dozens of older invoices for maintenance and servicing. We note from the file that the car had been stripped and fully painted some years ago, and at some point had been ‘Polybushed’ and fitted with a ‘sports’ exhaust manifold. The somewhat more ‘vertical’ appearance of the 2+2 is made less noticeable in darker colours and the deep blue hue on this car makes it look almost svelte. The interior is wonderfully patinated, not scruffy, just lived-in. With a fresh MOT and cosmetically sound this would be a good base for a new buyer to take it a bit further, however, it is currently a good looking, solid, usable classic, and it is an E-Type.

The Jaguar E-type 2+2 on offer here is a 4.2-litre, right-hand drive, Series ll with an automatic gearbox and chrome wire wheels. Its accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate states that it was finished on 22nd June 1970 and supplied by Henlys of London on 14th July 1970 to Harrison Gloucester Ltd in Horsforth finished in Indigo blue with a dark blue interior.

The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963. These final cars (before being replaced by the more complicated 964) were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche’s original design. Launched in 1984, and reviving the ‘Carrera’ name for the first time since 1977, these were the ultimate 1980’s sports cars. The all-alloy flat-6 engine, which had been fuel injected since 1971, received a final stretch to 3,164cc, giving a torque-rich 231bhp enough to propel the lithe and slippery coupé to over 150mph, with 0-60 mph coming up in 5.6 seconds. Cars built from September 1986 onwards were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 Getrag gearbox, but all 3.2 Carreras feature galvanised bodies, which together with Porsche’s legendary build quality, ensure that these classics are long lasting. The car presented here is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive 1988 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Sport Coupé. Quite remarkably this example has had just one previous owner and has accrued just 66,500 genuine and verifiable miles. This is supported by an original and fully stampedup service book (incorporating the recommended brake and coolant changes) and an impressive history file including a wealth of invoices.

The car was delivered new on the 20th January 1988 to a Londonbased customer through Charles Follett Ltd. of Berkeley Street who were the famous London agents for Jensen, Rolls-Royce, Daimler, Rover, Jaguar, and latterly Porsche. This first owner returned the car to their workshops for servicing at the correct intervals from 630 miles to 20,165 miles and later at the Official Porsche Centre (Dutton-Forshaw) between 25,297 miles and 31,880 miles. The car was subsequently serviced by Official Porsche Centre (Riverdale of Brighton) at 36,831 miles and then bought from them by its second owner (our vendor) on the 10th July 1995. There are a further nine service stamps (eight of which are from Paragon) right up until the 16th November 2016 at 66,419 miles. This car has obviously been well-maintained and presents, both mechanically and cosmetically, in very good condition. It has never required any major work due to its regular servicing, low mileage and garage storage. Rarely have these true classic 1980s 911s lived such a pampered life in the hands of so few owners. Small details like a complete Porsche tool-roll, jack and inflation kit, help support this dutiful ownership. This is a simply a lovely genuine example of one of the most popular and sought-after Porsche models.

The BMW 325i was a massively important car for BMW - and it remains an enduring success today. The E30 generation cemented BMW as the market leader in the medium sized saloon sector, and although it looked little different from its predecessor, thanks to understated styling by Claus Luthe, it was far more convincingly engineered and far better to drive. The upper models in the range, with their straight-six power, rear-wheel drive and perfectly judged steering, were the ones to have.

Supplied with an MOT Certificate until August 2017, the car is reported to be running and driving very well. The electric roof mechanism is functioning as it should and the manual gearbox is a joy to operate. This must be one of the rarest E30s available and is presented in totally standard and unmolested condition. An ideal companion for convertible Spring motoring at its very finest.

The 320i and - even more so - the 323i/325i were a real driver’s delight. The E12’s propensity to oversteer when it wanted to, had been tamed considerably in the E30. The manual 325i Sport was the best of the lot and with that wailing engine, controllable rearbiased handling, and all-round quality made this ‘the’ sports saloon to beat. This 325i Motorsport Cabriolet is one of just 250 right-hand drive limited editions made by BMW in 1989.

First seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1979, the Lancia Delta Integrale is best known for its domination of The World Rally Championship in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Constantly being developed, the first ‘Evoluzione’ cars were built at the end of 1991 and carried on through 1992 and these ‘Evo’ models were to be the final homologation cars built for the Lancia Rally Team competing under the Martini Racing banner. Arriving in June 1993, a further development of the HF Integrale naturally became known as the Evo II, and featured an updated version of the 2-litre 16-valve turbo engine producing a little more power (215bhp) and incorporated a three-way catalyst and a Lambda probe, with everything being run by a new Marelli integrated engine control system. In addition to the mechanical changes, the Evo II received a cosmetic and functional facelift that included new 16-inch light alloy rims with 205/45 ZR 16 tyres, a body colour roof moulding to underline the connection between the roof and the solar control windows, an aluminium fuel cap and air-intake grilles on the front mudguards, a red-painted cylinder head, a new leather-covered three-spoke MOMO steering wheel, and Recaro seats upholstered in beige Alcantara with diagonal stitching.

The car was imported by marque specialist Walkers Garage Ltd. in 2014 from Japan, and our vendor subsequently purchased the car from them and immediately asked them to go through the car carefully, prepare it for the UK and attend to any areas that were not 100%. Walkers in Northallerton are undoubtedly one of the UK’s top specialists in Lancia Deltas and particularly Integrales. In July 2015, Walkers felt they could achieve no more and returned the car to our vendor in exchange for £7,894.50. Reading just 13,167km at that point, the car has traveled a mere 373kms since recommissioning. Accompanying the Evo are its handbook, manual, a number of ‘Shakens’ (Japanese MOTs) and Walkers’ invoice. This car has a current MOT Certificate until 2018 and is fully UK-registered with no taxes to pay. Ready to be driven and enjoyed, or perhaps even put away. It does seem a shame not to use it, as these cars are “possibly the most fun you can have with your clothes on” but, on the other hand, they have significantly increased in value every year for the last ten years. This superb, low-milage, Integrale Evo II represent a fantastic opportunity to purchase a car that delivers at every level. This is one of the best examples we have ever seen, and would strongly recommend viewing of this car to fully appreciate just how special it is.

This very special Evo II is finished in Metallic Cherry Red with a beautiful Recaro Suede interior enhanced by the black leather-wrapped momo steering wheel, black dashboard and black detailing. On paper, Black and Beige are not natural bedfellows but in this case, with the bright Red coachwork, the result is spectacular. The previous owner has chosen to retain the original delivery polyethene wrapping in the footwells and lower doors, and whilst this is unusual, it means that these areas will remain pristine. The odometer reads a mere 13,540 kilometers and having inspected the car closely this seems totally feasible and feel that you might struggle to find a better-presented Integrale. The paintwork retains an excellent shine, the door shuts and panel gaps look even, the engine bay is tidy and untouched, and the whole car retains a sense of originality.

State Limousines have always been a staple of the Rolls-Royce brand, and the successful launch of the long wheelbase Silver Cloud in 1957 created a demand for the Cloud-based Phantom V in 1959. The rarest of all long-wheelbase Rolls-Royce from the Cloud through to the Shadow and onward to the Spur are the fabled non-division cars. Offering greater leg room, as ironically the division takes up the four-inch extra space offered by the LWB, greater driver comfort as the front seats can go further back, and in this egalitarian age the driver, when taking his family and friends for a spin, feels less like a liveried chauffeur. These long-wheelbase, non-division Clouds were labelled the SCT100, and exclusively coach built by the famed James Young. This very special Cloud III SCT100 is one of 17 long-wheelbase variants in right-hand drive without a division, and the first ever such Cloud III LWB coach built by James Young. According to its two-volume history file, the car was ordered new for Stanley Thorpe Esq. of Surrey via Jack Barclay Ltd, and the copy order form, dated 29th May 1962, is signed by no less than Jack Barclay himself. It’s interesting to note that the history file mentions that the car was destined for the Jack Barclay stand at the Earls Court Motor Show in October 1962, with Mr. Thorpe taking possession on the 14th November 1962. The build history of the car stated it was to be delivered in Velvet Green with “Champagne” leather interior and the usual refinements of electric windows and incredibly for the day, a “speed control” system, later to be known as cruise control.

The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III, introduced in 1963, was the final development of the Silver Cloud line first offered in 1955, and was regarded by many as the finest in the company’s history. Rolls-Royce obviously felt the same way as the III was proudly advertised as “The Best Car in the World”. Powered by the same stalwart 6.2-litre all-alloy V8 that powered the Cloud II, but with a bit more power and a little less weight, the Cloud III was a sprightly performer. With its smooth and efficient power plant, stately looks and majestic presence the Cloud III would become the first choice for celebrities, business moguls and aristocrats alike.

Jack Barclay Ltd. had the car for sale again in 1972, and in the 1980s the car was to travel to the United States where it was registered in 1987 to Inland Business Machines Inc. of Sacremento, California. The dry state of California was to be a safe haven for the car and copy photographs in the file show it resplendent in the Californian sunshine. The car was later found by Car-Howard International Ltd., a well-known Rolls-Royce dealer of the period, and was repatriated in 1988/89 and sold to a Charles Pritchard Esq. who had business interests in Saudi Arabia, on the 10th July 1989 for the sum of £55,000 and he owned it until May 2001 when it became the property of Caroline Watson of Chichester. She had some work carried out by marque specialists, Taylors of Chichester, but the car was lightly used and she eventually sold it. Our vendor purchased this Cloud early last year to add to his extensive collection of Rolls and Bentleys, however, he is very particular when it comes to the condition of his cars, so the decision was made to commit the rare SCT to specialists NRT Motors of Corse Lawn. Their brief was to go through the car carefully dealing with any mechanical issues and carry out a partial respray back to its full Velvet Green. The history file shows recent bills for circa £18,000 and the car presents superbly today. The Burr Walnut cappings on the doors, B-post, picnic tables and fascia are in expectational condition, the leather seats display a gentle patina, and the rear centre armrest has a fitted wooden hairbrush and monogrammed mirror. To conclude, therefore, it is rare to find a car with such a detailed history that includes its original handbooks, period fittings, and benefiting from a sympathetic restoration. The MOTs and service records show that it has travelled less than 2,200 miles in twenty-four years, showing a current odometer reading of a shade under 105,000 miles and is presented to auction with a fresh MOT. The SCT is a rare car and with its delightfully swoopy James Young bodywork, understated interior, and inherent Roll-Royce presence, UYR 571 emanates style with a capital ‘S’.

It is believed, according to copy records supplied by the Rolls-Royce Enthusiast Club, that after Mr.Thorpe’s period of tenure the car was then owned by James Young Limited of Bromley themselves in 1968.

Ferrari unveiled the new Testarossa (F110) at the 1984 Paris Motor Show, marking the end of production of the legendary Boxer that had been the flagship 12-cylinder Ferrari model for the previous ten years. Styled by Pininfarina, the Testarossa (Red Head) paid homage to the great 1950s sports racers that originally bore that name, referring to their bright red rocker box covers. The mid-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration allowed the centre of gravity to be positioned in the middle of the car resulting in the weight distribution being 40/60 front and rear, almost an ideal balance in terms of road holding and steering response. The Testarossa was larger than its Boxer predecessor, some 6 inches wider and 2.5 inches longer at 2550mm, allowing for more leg room and combined with the raised roof height in the cabin made progress a little more comfortable, provided you could see the corners of the car, which you couldn’t.

that a superbly maintained Ferrari that is frequently used is often a ‘happy’ Ferrari, as these cars were designed to be exercised to the full, carefully and exactly maintained, and exercised again. There is no question that this 512 TR has been ‘superbly maintained’. There are 17 service stamps in the book with regular belt changes, the last being at 71,041 by GT Auto Services in Burntwood. The last service and MOT was carried out by F1 Performance in October 2016 at 71,745. A separate file contains the service invoices and 20 MOTs dating back to 1995 confirming the fastidiousness of the owners and explaining why this car remains in such fabulous condition. This is definitely a “wow” car, beautifully presented, sweetly running, with a comprehensive history and we welcome any inspection.

Production of the 512 TR commenced in 1991 with deliveries to customers in 1992 and was effectively a re-engineered Testarossa, although all at Ferrari were keen that it was regarded as a new model. As well as the slightly less dramatic styling and a few tweaks to the detailing, the main changes were chassis and engine related. The power of the 4.9 Litre, 48-valve, flat 12 was increased to 428 bhp from 380 with a similar improvement in torque, and with the benefit of a 30kg weight reduction on the earlier model, 0-60 times fell from 5.3 to 4.9 seconds. A total of 2,280 were produced, of which 50 were right-hand drive. This 1992 Ferrari 512 TR was destined for the UK from the start. It’s finished in the classic combination of Rosso Corsa with Crema hide and was supplied by Maranello Concessionaires in Egham to David McErlain of Longstone Hall, Great Longstone on the 5th June 1992. The odometer currently reads 71,752 which is basically good news, as those knowledgeable folk that deal in Ferraris all the time, know

The Azure was the ultimate Bentley convertible, hand built at Crewe between 1995 and 2009, it was a last hurrah for the faithful and traditional 6.75-litre V8 engine. The model was continuously developed over its 15-year production run, with the final version launched in the 2006 model year. The revised Azure was now based on the Arnage platform and power was provided by the, thencurrent, variant of the Bentley turbocharged V8 making 450 hp (340kW) and 645lb/ft (875N/m) of torque. The new Arnage was initially designed for the BMW 4.4-litre engine, however due to a strained relationship between the two manufacturers, Volkswagen was forced to significantly re-work the original 6.75-litre Rolls-Royce/ Bentley V8 into a new twin-turbo, ultra modern technology spec and a new six-speed automatic transmission fed all this power to the rear wheels. Bentley claimed a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 168mph (270km/h), slightly faster than the previous edition and still very good for a vehicle of this size and weight.

In 1967, Alfa Romeo dipped its toe into the Supercar sector by launching the Montreal, named after the Montreal Expo where it made its debut. Initially fitted with Alfa’s four cylinder, twin cam engine, by the time the Montreal was launched, for a limited production run at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, this had changed to an all-new V8 quad-cam competition-derived power unit with dry sump lubrication taken from the successful Type 33 sports racer and mated to a 5-speed ZF gearbox, an altogether more appropriate power plant for such an exotic machine. With a capacity of 2,593cc, the V8 featured twin overhead camshafts per bank and produced, via Alfa Romeo/Spica fuel injection and Bosch electronic ignition, 200bhp at 6,500rpm. This provided excellent performance with a top speed of 137mph and 0-60mph in just 7.6 seconds. Under the exotic Bertone designed 2+2 coupé coachwork, the Montreal incorporated many stylish features, such as the headlamp eyelids and the NACA duct on the bonnet. The floorpan was derived from a modified 1750 GTV chassis and sported independent coil sprung front suspension, live coil sprung rear axle, limited slip differential and ventilated discs. This resulted in excellent road holding and braking. In the stylish interior, the seats had built-in adjustable headrests and an unusual external feature was vacuumoperated headlamp stone guards.

handling kit which we understand really transforms the car’s road manners and predictability. Showing a, possibly genuine, 44,678km from new, the car is accompanied by almost all its MOTs since 1993 at which point the mileage was just 39,223km. From looking at the extensive history file, which includes a vast quantity of invoices, it is clear that this car has been well loved. We were all a little wary of Montreals a couple of decades ago, after all, the design is nearly 50 years old, they are a little complex, and there aren’t many around, however with the arrival of the Internet, any problem can be solved within minutes by the International band of Montreal enthusiasts which, as a potential new owner, is very comforting. The Montreal is a true piece of Italian design, its looks have stood the test of time and they can now be made reliable, which is probably why they are starting to get the attention they deserve. A very honest car that would benefit from further TLC to improve its aesthetics, this landmark Alfa is now in need of a new custodian who will be happy to realise this car’s potential.

This Alfa Romeo Montreal was first delivered to France, where it remained until 1989 before being imported into the UK. In 1993 it was purchased by the previous keeper, and it remained in his ownership for 22 years. The previous owner was a professional mechanic and the car, whilst never being fully restored, has been very well maintained and tastefully upgraded throughout its life. These upgrades include the replacement of the notoriously problematic injection system with a more traditional and reliable carburettor arrangement which really makes the engine sound throaty, and growl as a V8 should.

The CSK was intended primarily to publicise the new anti-roll suspension and was promoted as a sportier Range Rover with only 200 numbered examples produced. This special Range Rover featured a number of modifications improving both performance and passenger comfort and was the fastest production Range Rover ever built at that time, with a chipped version of the 3.9-litre V8 engine developing 185bhp. The increase in performance is complemented by improved handling at high speeds and Land Rover had introduced front and rear anti-roll bars and sports dampers, to give a smoother, more comfortable ride on normal roads. These cars were finished exclusively in Beluga black with chrome bumpers, silver pinstripe coach lines, and discrete silver CSK logos are positioned on both front wings and one on the lower tailgate. The interior is pure Range Rover with contrasting beige soft leather trim and the American Walnut fascia rail and door inserts are exclusive to this model. This particular car (no. 153 of 200) is the rarer manual version and was delivered new to Mr A J Greaves on the 9th December, 1991. To this day it has been enjoyed by 6 further keepers. This vehicle really is special having undergone a complete nut and bolt restoration in 2013/14 with invoices in excess of £115K. This car was restored to be used and enjoyed and offers some upgrades whilst retaining its period charm. The engine is a freshly built 4.6 with performance cams, whilst the suspension has been upgraded with polyurethane bushes throughout and uprated shocks and springs (original ethos, modern twist). All of the upgrades have been done in such a way that nothing is obvious and everything is understated. For example, the flexible brake lines are upgraded braided items but have been sheathed to look like originals such is the level of detail.

The axles are both new along with the differentials, and the NOS (new old stock) gearbox is mated to a NOS transfer box. The rebuilt 4.6 engine is lively and torquey out on the road breathing through a stainless exhaust system which sounds just right. The underneath of this car is as good as the exterior coachwork and the attention to detail in the paintwork is impressive The list detailing the sheer amount of attention that this shiny RR received is too long to print here but full details will be available at the sale. Since completion of the restoration the car has covered a mere 5,000 miles including a trip across Europe during which time it’s understood to have performed faultlessly. At this guide price, and in this condition, this CSK offers the very best of both worlds and a rare opportunity to own a car that has Charles Spencer King’s name all over it.

After awarding the car five stars, this is what the team at Auto Express had to say about the new Ford Focus RS when launched: “The engineers have done an amazing job. It’s got storming performance, amazing handling and grip, but also real character thanks to that charismatic five-cylinder engine.” Now, six years later, our opinion of this car exactly tallies with this summation.

Sold with all its accompanying book packs, a current MOT and in almost showroom order throughout as you’d expect. There are not likely to be many opportunities to buy such a well-maintained and equivalent low-mileage car as this. Everyone needs an Electric Green car in their lives at some point, so don’t hesitate.

This Focus RS absolutely screams ‘Hot Hatch’ with its vibrant Electric Green paintwork and extreme styling. Unlike so many low mileage examples, our car benefits from having been serviced every year, six services in total, by its one and only keeper, despite having traveled fewer than 2,000 miles from new. A real rarity. This is the Focus that Ford originally claimed it would never build – a limited run 300bhp super-hatch. But we’re delighted they did. We make no apology for what it is, with a huge twin-blade spoiler at the back, an aggressive bodykit, and serious performance from the turbocharged 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine. It delivers scintillating performance and is unmatched in its ability on the road, however, it’s also a true dual-purpose machine, with refined road manners for the (few) occasions when you don’t want to go fast.

This 2005 Cayenne is a ‘Turbo S’ and was considered perhaps the ultimate version of the Cayenne range at the time. As this is a very early Turbo ‘S’, the letter ‘S’ on the rear boot lid is not displayed on this car as our vendor informs us that the ‘S’ tag was added later in the production run. He has owned this car since new and has covered just over 32,000 miles since taking delivery in 2005 to join his, by all accounts, eclectic classic car collection. This car has mainly resided in the south of France, enjoying the warmer climate, and has been a faithful servant to him while spending long periods out there. The time has now come to find it a new home, so our vendor drove this car all the way back to the UK recently, to bring onto the open market for the first time, and the car ran smoothly and faultlessly during the two day trip.

The Porsche Cayenne is a mid-size luxury crossover sports utility vehicle produced by Porsche since 2002, with North American sales beginning in 2003. It was the first V8-engined vehicle built by Porsche since 1995 when the Porsche 928 was discontinued. It is also Porsche’s first non-sports car since the Super and Junior tractors of the 1950s, and their first vehicle with four doors.

2005 Porsche Cayenne Turbo ‘S’

There are a few scratches and blemishes on the bodywork that could do with a bit of attention, as you might expect with a car that has spent 10 years on French roads, and it’s worth noting that the dashboard on the driver’s side has succumbed to the unforgiving, Côte d’Azure sun. This is a great opportunity to acquire a genuine one owner Porsche Cayenne Turbo suggested at a very competitive guide price considering the style, performance and luxury on offer in return.

The Mercedes-Benz ‘R230’ first appeared in 2001 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but it was in 2003 that the seriously powerful and stunning looking SL55 AMG version was introduced. Massively fast and very distinctive looking, the 5.4-litre engine produced 476bhp and a tree stump-pulling 520lb-ft of torque! The SL55 AMG was further enhanced by an ‘F1’ Performance Package offering a host of impressive upgrades from standard specification. Closely derived from the official FIA Safety Car for 2002, the ‘F1’ pack included: a vented front splitter, larger 19” wheels, larger brakes, uprated engine cooling system, improved chassis, new transmission with the shift button behind the wheel and, of course. more power! When new, these uprated SL55s had a list price of over £110,000. This monstrous SL55 was ordered with the ‘F1’ performance package and was supplied new to the UK. It boasts a huge specification that includes: active body control, AMG sports suspension, command navigation, TV Tuner, roof lining in Alcantara, pulse seats -heated and vented, Parktronic front and rear, phone system, Keyless Go, tyre pressure monitor, Electric folding mirrors,

Bi-Xenon headlamps, fire extinguisher and Berry Red exclusive leather Interior. Finished in Obsidian Black Metallic, the bodywork presents very well indeed and the overall condition of the car is very impressive and suggests it has been cherished from new. The massive 19” wheels are shod with Bridgestone Potenza tyres all round and it has the all-important list of recalls, completed by Mercedes-Benz, including upgrades to the SBC braking system. There is a large service history with a mixture of main dealer and specialist stamps in the service book. The mileage of 41,500 miles is substantiated by the impressive service history and a service has just been carried out in January 2017.

Launched in 1963 to replace the underpowered 190SL and utilising some of the new manufacturing techniques being adopted in the emerging S-Class, the Paul Bracq designed 230SL was proudly unveiled to an appreciative audience at the Geneva Motor Show. Remaining in production until 1971 with around 49,000 finding customers, the W113 Class, frequently referred to as the ‘Pagoda’, eventually spanned three engine sizes.

1968 Mercedes-Benz 250SL Pagoda

Red with a Black roof in 1981. There is a fair bit of history with the car dating back to 1981 with most of the MOTs and invoices for servicing and maintenance. The current indicated mileage is 16,248, but we believe this is likely to be 116,248. The car appears mechanically and cosmetically sound, the chrome is excellent and the brilliant red paintwork retains a deep shine. We understand from our vendor that the car is a “good daily driver”. Accompanied by its soft and hard tops, a fresh MOT and sitting on four new tyres, this little red Pagoda is very appealing and the world’s enthusiasm for these charismatic, sixties, Mercedes sports cars shows little sign of abating.

They were offered with a 4-speed Automatic transmission or a 4/5-speed ZF manual gearbox. Production ended in January 1968 and its one-year production run makes the 250SL the rarest of the W113 series. Initially delivered to the UK in late March 1968, this right-hand drive, automatic, 250SL ‘Pagoda’ was first registered here on 1st April 1968.

This has to be the ultimate specification lightweight Mini! Built by Martin Prasse in Germany between 2007 and 2009, it boasts 138bhp yet weighs just 625kg resulting in around 220bhp/ton which should put a smile on anyone’s face. This incredible Mini was featured on the cover of ‘Mini World’ magazine in July 2011, and inside was an 8-page article chronicling everything that went into building this exceptionally track-focused car. Its history file contains invoices for just short of £30,000, but this does not include the labour or the purchase of the original bodyshell. Given the attention to detail and modern technical features, it would be impossible to replicate this car for less than £45,000 The car has been NOVA’d on arrival in the UK but carries a Dutch registration document and a German “Oldtimer” card. We urge you to come and see this impressive Mini for yourself and spend some time pouring over the many receipts and invoices to get a full understanding of just what has gone into its build.

With so few produced and with such a serious price tag, Rolls-Royce Phantoms of 1959 to 1991 were destined for some very special customers. Being a Head of State seemed a prerequisite for owning a Phantom. HM Queen Elizabeth II has a Phantom V, and her mother owned one as well. According to copy construction and test records supplied by the RollsRoyce Enthusiasts Club, this delightful Phantom V was ordered new by Nottingham Corporation as appropriate transport for their Lord Mayor and his guests. Delivery of the chassis to the coachbuilder, HJ Mulliner Park Ward, was scheduled for 20th May 1964 with the limousine due to be formally handed over on the 26th August 1964. The interior specification naturally included a cocktail cabinet containing two cut glass decanters and four glasses.

Introduced in 1959, Rolls-Royce’s new limousine model, the longwheelbase Phantom V, effectively replaced both the Phantom IV and the Silver Wraith. Built on a much modified and strengthened Silver Cloud II chassis, the new Phantom measured over 6 metres in length and enabled coachbuilders to combine the desirable qualities of a spacious interior with generous boot space and graceful lines. A lower final drive ratio ensured that whilst top speed was a little down on that of its stablemates, though still in excess of 100mph, the new Phantom could all but match them for acceleration.

1964 Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limousine

We understand from our vendors that the car was bought from Nottingham Corporation by A.W. Lymm Funeral Directors, and after some time in the United States returned to the UK and the custodianship of Mahony and Ward during the 2000s, before being registered to our vendors on the 7th October 2014. The interior of the car had suffered as a result of a small fire that mercifully did not affect the rest of the car, so it was dispatched to Classic Restorations of Alyth, Scotland who spent 12 months returning the interior to its former glory. The passenger compartment now presents superbly with the rear seats re-trimmed in Light Biscuit leather piped in Black with Charcoal carpeting and Black leather seats in the front. Having been looked after by Rolls-Royce specialists Shadow Vehicle Services of Pudsey, Leeds since 2010, the servicing and maintenance bills on file for that period come to a shade under £10,000. The car’s last service was in 2013 and it has covered a little over 1,000 miles since then. Resplendent in Gloss Black over Air Force Blue, this magnificent Phantom V is presented to auction with an MOT until September 2017 and an odometer reading of a shade under 95,000 miles. Recently serviced with its new interior this stately Rolls-Royce is ready to convey its occupants in regal splendour for many more years to come.

This special and unique British sports car was built by the highly respected Evanta Motor Company and is the brainchild of ‘For the Love of Cars’ classic car enthusiast, Ant Anstead. The Evanta ‘DB Barchetta’ (Italian for “little boat”) is a two-seater, open-top sports car, inspired by the design language of those classic 1950s Italian sports-racing cars (Ferrari, Maserati, Lancia, Abarth, and OSCA) so familiar from the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio. The Barchetta journey started out as a concept in 2012 and evolved naturally, based on customer feedback and daily in-house development. The “DB” (Double Bubble) Barchetta is the next phase of that development. The conversation that started the “DB” re-styling revolved around the necessity to provide roll-over protection for the European market, and how to cloak the additional chassis structure and provide the necessary strength, whilst staying true to the 1950s styling ethos that is the basis for the car. The solution was to create two aesthetically-pleasing bulges behind the occupants heads, reminiscent of the race cars that graced the period and named after a distinctive styling cue associated with the delicious offerings from the legendary House of Zagato.

car inspired by the beauty and sheer desirability of those glorious, sleek sports-racers of the late fifties. Buyers should be aware that VAT will be due on the final hammer price. N.B. The ‘Evanta Motor Company’ is now in administration and the company is under the direction of the joint administrators who are acting as agents of the company and without any personal liabilities. The car is sold “strictly as seen”. However, Ant Anstead has confirmed that his new company, ‘DOWSETTS CLASSIC CAR COMPANY LIMITED’ will, by agreement, warranty the ‘Double Bubble’ car for 12 months for general items (chassis, suspension etc.). Any engine/gearbox warranty will be transferred from the relevant supplier (if such transfer is permitted). Basically, it is his intention to look after the new customer.

During the evolution, numerous modifications were made to the interior, as well as introducing a number of mechanical and technical upgrades. Built on a bespoke tubular chassis and using a combination of GRP and Kevlar to create a one-piece body shell, the car is powered by the potent Chrysler 6.2-litre LS3 V8 producing an impressive 470bhp in a car weighing 1,050kg. Features include a 5-speed manual gearbox, fully adjustable suspension, power steering, bias adjustable disc brakes all round, full stainless 16” wire wheels, bespoke cooling and fuel systems, modern ECU power, plus leather and Alcantara trim. This left-hand drive and seriously cool British sports car is UKRegistered, has only completed five miles since being finished and is ready to go. Offered at no reserve, this is truly an unrepeatable opportunity to experience the comforts of a well-engineered modern

‘Turbo Technics’ was founded in 1981 by Geoff Kershaw, a former Garrett Ai-Research engineer who had worked on turbocharging Saab 99s and 900s. Turbo Technics turned their attentions to the Capris soon after. The advent of the definitive V6-engined 2.8i model in 1981 proved a superb platform for turbocharging, and whilst standard cars offered 160bhp, the Turbo Technics’ conversions ranged from 200bhp through to 280bhp. The tie-up with the Blue Oval paid dividends, with Ford being so impressed that they agreed to offer Turbo Technics-tweaked Capris through its dealerships, making them semi-official. Turbo Technics went on to modify other marques, and unlike many specialist tuners, they are still in

The Capri 280 ‘Brooklands’ was the run-out model of the legendary Ford coupé and featured a limited slip differential, full leather Recaro interior and 15-inch versions of the seven spoke 13-inch wheels fitted to the superseded Capri Injection Special. Ford originally intended to make 500 turbo-charged vehicles (by Turbo Technics) complete with gold alloy wheels, but a change of production planning meant a name change to Capri 280 (commonly known as Brooklands after the colour of Green that they were all painted), as the cars were simply the last models run down the production line. A total of 1,038 Capri 280s were built.

This 280 Brooklands was first registered in the UK on 5th August 1987, and is showing 5 former keepers from new. The car has recently been looked after by respected Ford engine specialist Ric Wood and he has carried out a fresh service. This included an oil change and replacement of perishable components. The car has covered a total mileage of over 50,000, and had a speedo change at 10,000 miles. This is believed to have been carried out by Turbo Technics when they converted the car.

The introduction of the MG Metro Turbo at the 1982 Birmingham Motor Show was the first hint that the company viewed the little Metro as anything other than a ‘bread and butter’ city car, and it would have taken a lot of foresight to envision the competition successes that were but a few years away. The new model benefitted from some input from Lotus Engineering Race Technology (nitrided steel crank and sodium-cooled exhaust valves) and the introduction of a Garret T3 Turbocharger persuaded the middle-aged ‘A’ Series to release a classleading 93bhp. The Garrett turbocharger was probably the single key factor that allowed the Metro Turbo to be developed into the 230bhp crowd-pleasing, flame-belching and crackling racer that was to become synonymous with British Touring Cars in the mid-eighties. Other positive features included powerful servo assisted brakes using four-pot callipers, ventilated discs up front, and stiffer suspension. The ‘MG Turbo’ also sported a new body kit utilising a front spoiler and four wheel-arch extensions that neatly balanced the MG Metro rear spoiler and this, together with the use of Turbo-specific larger 13” alloy wheels and low-profile tyres, enhanced the car’s looks considerably. Offered here is a remarkably original MG Metro Turbo with just 7,317 miles covered from new and representing a wonderful opportunity for an MG collector. It was ordered new by its first owner Mr H.W. Lamont, who kept it for thirty years, and was a special factory order

that included colour-coded bodywork, mainly to the lower half, a look that obviously impressed somebody as it subsequently became standard on the MKII in early 1985. The factory also painted the wiper arms, mirrors, and grille. Lex Mead, the supplying dealer, were so impressed that they persuaded Mr. Lamont to delay collecting the car and the Turbo remained displayed in their showroom for quite some time, attracting much admiration and, we would guess, a few orders. Remaining in fabulous condition, the car was awarded first prize in a couple of car-club Concours d’Elegance events in 2000 and 2001, before being professionally stored. Its equally proud second owner continued to cherish the car for another two years. The history file is absolutely complete, including full service details with all the MOT Certificates substantiating the indicated 7,317 miles. It’s complete with all documentation and even its original unused wheels and tyres, as the owner wanted to ensure its total originality. The original Dunlops are as new with the little mould flashes still sticking out. The condition of this MG Metro Turbo can only be described as “show-stopping”, and it’s a fascinating part of British Leyland history and, with hindsight, probably played the pivotal role in ‘morphing’ the Metro from a 1.1-litre shopping car into Leyland’s most successful competition car ever.

At its introduction in 1982, the Sierra’s revolutionary new shape proved a touch more divisive than Ford had anticipated and some serious marketing became a priority, so it was the obvious choice to become the platform for Ford’s new competition aspirations in conjunction with Cosworth. It fitted the brief well as it was rear-wheel drive, had good aerodynamics, albeit being prone to lift at high speeds and was available as a three-door. The new body kit and rear spoiler would sort out the lift issues but, more importantly, Ford still needed to build 5,000 units for homologation somewhat worrying when the company’s initial approach to the dealer network came back with an estimate that suggested they could sell around 1,500 units! The eventual sales record is, of course, history. Ford went on to sell 5,545 three-door cars including the RS500, of which only 500 were built, and the Cosworth engine also found its way into nearly 30,000 Ford Sierra Saloons (Cosworth 3dr, Sapphire 2wd, and 4wd). The Sierra Cosworth comfortably exceeded Ford’s best expectations and it went on to become one of the most successful Touring Car racers of all time, winning races all over the world.

It appears to have been used as normal everyday transport until the mid-nineties, when it was taken off the road and stored in the owner’s garage, where it was to remain unused for more than 20 years, making only an occasional appearance for an MOT. The recorded mileage of 42,780 miles is known by our vendor to be accurate, however since all service documentation has been lost, the mileage cannot be officially verified. The car has been MOT’d every year since 2012, but has not been used. Prior to receiving its latest MOT in January 2017, the car underwent a full brake overhaul including new discs and pads front and rear, and reconditioned callipers front and rear. The relevant invoices for this work are in the car’s history file along with the Registration Documents’, V5s and SORNs etc. This is a well-presented, completely standard and apparently unmolested example of these desirable eighties sporting saloons and is eminently usable with a sensible mileage that doesn’t mean you have to worry about putting a few more on, and an appearance that suggests that it has been cossetted all its life. A cracking ‘Cossie’.

Ashley Laminates were manufacturers of body shells and chassis for various specials between 1955 and 1962, and offered a range of bonnets and hardtops for other mass-produced sports cars, including the Austin-Healey Sprite and Jaguar E-Type. The ‘Ashley GT’ conversion came as a complete package and became popular amongst owners of Sprites and Midgets, transforming the little convertibles into small ‘Grand Tourers’. At some sTAGe, this 1965 MG Midget was converted with a Williams and Pritchard pattern nose and finished in dark green. The car found its way to Ireland but returned to the UK having been modified with a 1,275cc engine. In 2010, it was upgraded to a ‘fast road’ specification and was fitted with a new Ashley MkIII GT hardtop with Kamm tail and internal boot cover (supplied by Ashley distributors), new aluminium doors, a new windscreen, Ashley stainless steel grille, and correct front and rear Ashley badges. The car was fully repainted in Jaguar British Racing Green two-pack paint, giving it a beautiful finish.

The cooling system was comprehensively renewed with a new radiator, oil cooler and all new pipes and hoses, and the gearbox was overhauled with a 3:7 differential being fitted giving better cruising speeds at lower RPM. The front brakes were renewed, whilst the rears were overhauled with new seals, and the car now sits on wire wheels with 3-eared knock-offs. In the cabin, new Speedwellstyle bucket seats were fitted along with all new carpets and trim panels, a wood rim steering wheel, alloy gear knob, period cigar lighter and even a map reading light. Supplied with a UK V5C, the car will have a fresh MOT prior to the sale and is now looking in fine condition. With Ashley GTs now appearing at lots of historic motorsport events, this lovely little car is the perfect candidate for touring or may even provide a route into hill climbing or sprints.

Cosmetically, the bodywork was revised with wider wheel arches (similar to that of the 924 Carrera GT), a fresh interior and upgrades to the braking and suspension systems. With greater visual presence and the performance to match, better handling, stopping power and more creature comforts, the 944 was a major step forward. A turbo version of the 944 was always on the cards, and it boosted the 2.5-litre engine by nearly 60bhp, whilst both the clutch and gearbox were uprated to suit. The chassis was beefed up and thicker anti-roll bars and four-pot brake callipers were fitted. A smooth nose panel and a larger rear spoiler distinguished it from its lesser siblings. For 1988, a Turbo SE was offered with 250bhp thanks to a larger turbocharger, the transmission was again upgraded, and a limited slip diff was fitted along with uprated brakes and Koni dampers. From 1989-1991 the ‘SE’ specification was adopted for the standard 944 Turbo making it somewhat of a sleeping giant. The car presented here is something very special. It is one of the best 944 examples we have seen and it is a privilege to represent it. Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield painstakingly restored this 944 Turbo for its inclusion in the 2014 ‘Porsche Classic Restoration Competition’. The basis for this restoration was an original UK right-hand drive 1991, 944 Turbo, which had been well-known to the Porsche Centre for the previous 11 years, having been regularly serviced by them.

Following the international success of the 924, a more powerful Porsche-designed all-alloy, 2.5-litre inline-four, producing 163bhp, was introduced in 1982 for the 944. Porsche engineers were able to produce a very smooth running four-cylinder engine by utilising two counter-rotating balance shafts running at twice engine speed. These carry eccentric weights which produce inertial forces that balance out the unbalanced secondary forces, making a four-cylinder engine feel as smooth as a six.

accompanied by an original and fully stamped-up service book and an impressive history file including a wealth of invoices. The team removed the motor and transmission and set about a full re-commissioning and servicing process, replacing parts where needed including all the suspension’s perishables (springs, dampers and bushes), as well as the engine mounts. The receipts for the replacements parts alone total approximately £12,500, without the labour at Porsche rates!. This ambitious restoration saw the Porsche Centre team focus on the mechanical components, whilst the rolling shell was entrusted to nearby Porsche-approved prestige body-shop, Shorade. While Shorade worked their magic on the 944 Turbo’s bodywork – including a 400hour painting process in the iconic Porsche hue of Guards Red - Castle Vale-based Bespoke Leathering revamped the car’s leather upholstery, door-cards, headlining and carpets. All this work culminated in an award presented by Dr Wolfgang Porsche at the 2014 Porsche Festival at Brand Hatch. The car comes with all its receipts, a complete Porsche book-pack, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a specially printed, hardcover, photo catalogue documenting the Porsche restoration process from start to finish. This is a rare opportunity to purchase one of only a few cars that have ever been restored by an official Porsche Centre. This car offers the best-of-both worlds, coming with a documented service history whilst also having been completely refreshed at the hands of experts. The 944, the 968 and even the 928 are seeing their values rise in the wake of the ‘911 explosion’. Front-engined Porsches are having the renaissance they richly deserve, and this exceptional example, whilst being competitively guided, opens the door into a very exclusive club of Porsche ownership. Now ready to be enjoyed by a new owner, this is one not to be missed and has the potential to be a shrewd investment.

The Ferrari 348 series marked a radical departure in the way Maranello constructed its cars, replacing as they did a chassis of traditional steel tubes with a much stiffer monocoque structure with a tubular rear subframe. Suspension remained independent front and rear with wishbones, springs, telescopic shocks, anti-roll bars, and revised geometry. The ventilated disc brakes were much larger than those of its predecessor, the Ferrari 328, and used antilock technology. A midship-mounted V8 returned, but it was larger and more powerful displacing 3405cc, mounted longitudinally and mated to a transverse gearbox. The displacement accounted for the new car’s Ferrari 348 designation. The suffix TB came from the transverse gearbox and closed ‘Berlinetta’ body style. A higher compression ratio and updated fuel injection helped generate 300 horsepower, 30-40 more than the Ferrari 328, whilst a dry-sump oiling system gave the new Ferrari a lower centre of gravity. The 348 was the last design under the supervision of legendary chief stylist Leonardo Fioravanti, and a lot of the styling cues came from the Testarossa, particularly the side strakes, however, its forms were softer than those of the 328 but still curvaceous and with a longer wheelbase and wider track the interior had a bit more space. This beautiful left-hand drive 348TB was supplied new to Idropi S.P.A of Verona, Italy on 1st February 1990 and is one of 60 preproduction cars that were released to Ferrari dealers, the differences

being that the battery is located in the rear of the car, not the front, the prancing horse is painted black as opposed to silver, and the underside of the bonnet is finished in red, whereas production cars were black. Finished in Rosso with a Tan interior, the car was infrequently used, reflected in its incredibly low mileage. During its life, the previous owner was a member of the prestigious ‘Automotoclub Storico Italiano’, a well-respected car club in Italy. In September 2014, when the mileage was recorded at 2,490km, the car was sent to Toni Auto of Maranello for a service. Our vendor purchased the car in 2015 and immediately sent the car to the aforementioned specialist for a full recommission of the engine. At this time, the engine was removed in its entirety, dismantled, machined and cleaned before being reassembled and put back in the car. Photographs of this work and the €8,000 invoice are contained within the history file. ‘Ferrari Classiche’ has been prepared by Toni Auto of Maranello at a cost of 2,580 euros as shown by the invoice and certificate in the history file. This superb 348TB is supplied with a complete set of official Ferrari luggage, tools & jack and a full leather book pack containing all the relevant literature. Presented in exceptional condition, this car is a rare opportunity to own a 2,500km from new 348TB - a model that is now getting the attention that it richly deserves. This car ticks all the boxes and wouldn’t look out of place in any car collection.

The XK150 appeared in May 1957, replacing the 140, and was the final incarnation of the XK series. It was a more refined and capable machine than its predecessors, whilst being noticeably different from its earlier siblings. There was a significantly higher scuttle and door line, whilst the radiator grille reverted to the thinner slats of the 120 but was altogether wider. Larger wraparound bumpers were fitted, a curved windscreen replaced the divided one on the 120 and 140, and powerful, servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes all round were a welcome addition. However, the 150 retained much of the mechanical layout of the XK140, sharing the same 3.4-litre DOHC Jaguar straight-six until, in 1960, Jaguar increased the engine size to 3.8-litres providing the later cars with a class-leading 220bhp.

the car over the following 25 years. This fastidious process utilised the skills of numerous marque specialists, including a ground-up body restoration by M&C Wilkinson Ltd. The quality of the work is simply excellent, retaining as many original parts as possible and all major components were fully rebuilt and recommissioned. There is a photographic record of the whole process confirming the brothers’ very high standards and attention to detail. The brakes have been upgraded and the fitting of a more modern Jaguar XJ automatic gearbox makes this classic particularly easy to drive. Importantly, the original automatic gearbox will be supplied with the car in the interests of preserving matching numbers status, and this would be relatively straightforward to refurbish and reinstate. This extensive restoration was completed in 2013, with our vendor having used the car sparingly since, covering only a few hundred miles. ‘720 YUU’ is a very special car. It offers a new owner the very best-of-both worlds – a 3.8 XK150 with matching-numbers and continuity of ownership and history – with a level of restoration and improvement that is hugely reassuring and confidence-inspiring. This car is ready to be fully enjoyed and appreciated.

In 1951, the short wheelbase Alfa Romeo 1900C (c for corto-short) was introduced and was joined by the 1900TI, with a more powerful 100bhp engine, bigger valves, a higher compression ratio and twin carburettors. Two years later the 1900 Super and 1900 TI Super with a 1975cc engine were introduced. The TI Super had two twinchoke carburettors and produced around 115bhp which was fed through a 4-speed manual on basic versions and 5-speed manual in the Super Sprint. All versions had drum brakes, independent front suspension, and a live rear axle. Iginio Alessio, General Manager of Alfa Romeo at the time, was concerned for the viability of the independent Italian coachbuilding industry as the arrival of the unibody chassis design was threatening to put the ‘Carrozzerie’ out of business. Consequently, Alfa gave official contracts to Touring to build the sporty 1900 Sprint Coupé and to Pininfarina to build an elegant four-seat Cabriolet and Coupé. The availability of a suitable chassis led many other coachbuilders to build versions of the 1900. Carrozzeria Zagato built a small series of coupés with the unofficial designation of 1900 SSZ, designed for racing with an aerodynamic lightweight aluminium body, and Zagato’s trademark double-bubble roof.

Finished to a very high standard and elegantly wrapped in aluminium, this gorgeous Alfa Barchetta is running on Weber carburettors and sounds fantastic! The car has been registered in the UK and is documented on the V5C as a ‘1953 Alfa Romeo 1900’. Recently serviced, the engine is Alfa Romeo’s classic four-cylinder, twin-camshaft unit derived from the 60s Spider model. These are truly superb compact engines that have plenty of kick. This operatic engine coupled with the lightweight build makes for an undeniably rapid driving experience. With its 5-speed gearbox and ballerina-like sense of poise, it’s most at home on twisty Targa Florio style roads. This is an unmissable opportunity to acquire a unique car, itself a celebration of the essence of Italian creativity in metal. Offered at a realistic estimate when you consider the cost of more massproduced contemporary aluminum replicas and coachbuilt cars of the era, this example is an eminently affordable work of art.

By the time Ford dispensed (at least temporarily) with the Thunderbird moniker in 2005, the model had progressed through no less than 11 generations, the combined production total of which was in excess of 4.4 million. The first-generation cars hit the streets in October 1954 and, while it was created in direct response to Chevrolet’s Corvette, Ford’s emphasis was more on comfort than overt sportiness and is widely recognised as creating a new niche market, “the personal luxury car”. Though sleeker than most of its Ford siblings, it shared many of their components and the 292ci (4.8-litre) V8 engine was borrowed from the company’s Mercury division. By the time the fourth generation appeared in 1964, the T-Bird was an altogether larger proposition, with four rather than two seats and power from a 6.4-litre V8 of either 300bhp or 330bhp, mated to a three-speed automatic gearbox, and the styling was more in line with the trends at the time, almost a ‘Space Race’ car with styling cues taken from the space programme. The seat supports are mounted inboard, giving the appearance that the seats are hovering. The dashboard instruments are round like ‘Sputnik’ satellites, the wipers and heating are controlled using T-shaped levers mounted on the dashboard, and in the overhead console, there are buttons to control the flashers and warning lights for the seatbelts. Even the steering wheel moves to one side to enable easy

entry and exit of the vehicle. The best feature of the ‘66 model is the sequential rear indicators where the rear turn signal consists of three bulbs that flash in turn, very similar to the new range of Audis, however Ford had developed this technology 50 years ago! This beautiful Thunderbird was manufactured in Lorain, Ohio in 1966 and is fitted with the 390ci, 315hp V8, and three-speed ‘Cruise-O-Matic’. Finished in Brittany Blue with contrasting White Pearl Vinyl interior, this delightful piece of sixties Americana is certainly imposing. The vendor states that the car is in “beautiful condition” and the photographs certainly suggest so. We understand that everything works and even the fuel gauge and rear sequential indicators behave themselves. The car was purchased from a dealer in Florida who had eventually persuaded a local collector to part with it after a number of years in his collection. Included in the sale are a set of new OEM front seat covers. The vendor has also fitted a modern Holley carburettor with electric choke and ‘Petronix’ electronic ignition to ensure the big, sixties V8 bursts into life every time. (The original carb is included in the sale). The vendor tells us that this dramatic head-turner is ready for the 2017 show season and to be enjoyed by its new owner. Original Thunderbirds in this condition are a rare find.

The Jaguar XJ Coupé was based on the short wheelbase version of the XJ and offered in 4.2 and 5.3-litre engine sizes. In 1977, just 1,776 Jaguar XJ 12 4.2 Coupés and 329 5.3 V12s were built by the factory, making these coupés quite rare today. First registered in August 1977, this original UK right-hand drive, XJ Coupé was purchased by our vendor in 2015 from its previous owner, who had enjoyed the car for 11 years. His intention was to totally restore this unusual Jaguar and he had a clear idea of how he wanted it to look when it was finished. The process took almost two years and was only just completed prior to our auction. Originally a 4.2-litre, 6-cylinder example, this XJ had been converted to a V12 with four SU carburettors at some point in the past, which our vendor believes may have been about 20 years ago. The restoration began with a total strip back to a bare shell. Not a single bolt or piece of trim remained on the car (as can be seen from our photographs) and the shell was repaired where necessary, primed, rubbed down and primed again until it was ready to start taking the first of a dozen coats of paint. It was then finished in a lovely shade of Tyrolean Green. All the external chrome work has been re-plated to complement the new coat of paint. The car was then built up in the only way you can, by running brake pipes, the wiring loom, and fitting

all the components that attach to the bulkhead first, and generally assembling the whole car as it would have been done at Jaguar. The running gear, suspension, steering and brake systems were dismantled and reconditioned or replaced with new items where necessary. Similarly, the V12 engine and gearbox have been partly dismantled, checked, reconditioned and rebuilt as required. Naturally, the interior has been completely reinstated and the splendid net result can only be fully appreciated by sitting in it. A three-spoke wood rim wheel, a new ‘Everflex’ roof and chrome, 60-spoke, wire wheels complete the presentation of this unique V12 Jaguar XJ. The odometer currently reads a shade under 65,000 miles (not warranted) and this stunning Jaguar is accompanied by a partial history file documenting some of its past life, along with lots of invoices relating to the restoration. Another project forces our vendor to offer this car for sale at a fraction of its cost to him, and having seen little use since its completion. The XJ Coupé is fast becoming one of Jaguars most collectable saloons; Silverstone Auctions having sold restored V12 examples for record sums in 2016; this example represents an excellent choice for any classic car enthusiast who is in the market for something a little different.

In 1989, the second series of the 944 was introduced, powered by a 210bhp normally aspirated, double-overhead-cam, 16-valve, 3.0-litre version of the 944S engine, which was the largest four-cylinder engine in production at the time. The 944 S2 also benefited from a revised transmission and the gearing was tweaked to better suit the torque and peak power characteristics of the 3.0-litre M44/41 powerplant. The S2 had the same rounded nose and rear valance found on the 944 Turbo model and this was the first example of the use of an integrated front bumper, where the bumper and bonnet profiles would merge smoothly, a design feature that was adopted widely on production cars from the mid-nineties.

Developed in 1990, the B12 was an Alpina tuned version of the E31 8 Series BMW. Using the 5.0-litre V12 found in the 850i, the B12 was tuned to a healthy 350hp and hit 60mph in 6.8 seconds. This incredibly rare B12 5.0 was sold new in the UK through Sytner Nottingham and is one of just five right-hand drive B12 5.0 Alpinas ever produced, from a total production run of only 97 examples. Having covered just 39,000 miles from new, and with an extensive BMW main dealer service history, it has been owned and cherished by a true Alpina enthusiast. A letter from BMW is provided in the history file, which states this very car was the second most expensive B12 5.0 ever sold. Finished in Mauritius Blue with Light Grey leather covering the sports seats, other factory options included ASC+ traction control and electronic damper control.

This Alpina is very well known to the BMW Car Club and has recently been featured in magazine articles. In fact, it was featured just last year in Classic Cars Magazine under the title of ‘undercover supercar’ by Sam Dawson who wrote; “I am reluctant to return it to the dealer because it is not often you encounter such an uncanny all-rounder.” This extremely collectable vehicle represents a very exciting opportunity to own one of the very rarest of all BMW models. We welcome all pre-sale inspections and encourage prospective bidders to contact the office for further information. Picture Credit: Laurens Parsons and Classic Cars Magazine.

One of the many impressive aspects of this B12 5.0 is its history file. There is a complete MOT test history, along with 11 stamps in the service book, all from BMW main dealers. The last service was carried out by Sytner, Nottingham and included in the sale is approximately one month left on a BMW warranty.

“The Murciélago embodies the pure, unadulterated values of our brand. It is truly extreme, uncompromising and unmistakably Italian.” - the words of Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, in a speech in 2010 outlining the company’s future plans and celebrating the end of production of the Murciélago. The car may have been ‘unmistakably Italian’ but its name is unmistakably Spanish (Castillian for Bat), and is a continuation of Lamborghini’s tradition of naming its cars after legendary figures from the world of bullfighting, ‘Murciélago’ being the name of a particularly brave animal, who, in 1879, refused to succumb during a long and bloody encounter and displayed such spirit and passion that his life was spared. Introduced in 2001, and in production through a couple of variants until 2010, the Murciélago is an all-wheel drive, mid-engined, supercar that sits less than four feet tall and sports dramatic ‘scissor doors’. The power output of the early cars was around 570bhp, delivered through a six-speed manual gearbox with an integral differential driving the rear wheels and a viscous coupling centre differential providing power to the front. The very low-drag bodywork is constructed from carbon fibre, steel and aluminium and the suspension is conventional independent double wishbone. The ultimate development of the Murciélago appeared at the 2009 Geneva Show in the form of the LP 670-4 Super Veloce and was the spiritual successor to the raw and outrageous Diablo SV of 1995. Considerably lighter (200lb.) than its predecessor and with 663bhp available at 8,000 rpm, the 670 redefines the ‘super’ in supercar with performance quite a long way the other side of impressive. 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and 0-120 in 7.4 with 15” carbon-ceramic discs and pin-sharp steering result in one very focussed motor car. The original production plan of the ultimate Murciélago was limited to 350 cars however, only 186 LP 670-4s were produced before the factory had to make room for the new Aventador production line making these cars very rare.

This right-hand drive SV example has covered 14,000 kms from new and was originally delivered to Singapore. Last year the car was imported to the UK from there, the VAT was paid, and it was then put through an IVA test in order to be UK registered. Following that, Lamborghini Birmingham helped the vendor through the registration process and have prepared all the paperwork needed to UK register the car. We are informed that all that needs to be done in order to register the car is to simply fill out the new owner details and send them off to the DVLA. Whilst at Lamborghini Birmingham getting the registration documents sorted, they also serviced the car in August of last year and there are documents in the history file supporting this. There are also invoices present from Eurosports Auto Pte Ltd in Singapore from the period between 2010 and 2015. Finished in the striking combination of Arancio Leonis with an Alcantara interior, this car has a high specification including: 18inch split five spoke black painted alloy wheels, carbon ceramic front and rear brakes, orange brake calipers, Alcantara Nero Perseus interior, three spoke Alcantara steering wheel, contrast stitching, carbon fibre veneer, rear view camera, iPod interface with USB, Bluetooth system, Kenwood Stereo, sports seats, carbon fibre door inserts, carbon fibre ‘Murcielago’ engraved treadplates.

1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 V8 Coupé

The 3.5-litre version of the 280SE typifies the resurgence of largerengined Mercedes-Benz models that began in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when the progressive easing of fiscal constraints, which had dissuaded customers from buying cars with large capacity engines, encouraged the German manufacturer to offer bigger, more potent power units. Thus, the ultra-luxurious 280SE Coupé/Cabriolet and 300SEL saloon were the models chosen by Mercedes-Benz to launch its magnificent new 3.5-litre V8 engine in 1969. An over-square design featuring a cast-iron block and aluminium alloy cylinder heads, each equipped with a single overhead camshaft, this all-new, state-of-theart power unit produced 200bhp courtesy of Bosch electronic fuel injection and transistorised ignition. Thus equipped, the Coupé/ Cabriolet was good for 125mph with 60mph whispering by in 9.5 seconds, a substantial improvement on the six-cylinder version’s figures. Although the equivalent SEL saloon used the ‘New Generation’ bodyshell, the Coupé and Cabriolet kept the elegant coachwork that had debuted back in 1959 on the 220SE and, as befitted top-of-therange luxury models came equipped with automatic transmission, air conditioning, power windows and stereo radio as standard. Significantly, the 280SE 3.5 was to be the final model to feature this long-established and much-admired body style, and today these last-ofthe-line classics are highly sought after by discerning Mercedes-Benz collectors. But it’s not just their rarity that makes them so desirable, since they also represent some of the quickest Mercedes’ of that era.

by the previous owner, television actor and noted Mercedes enthusiast, Gary Mavers from 2014. New floors were installed to allay the common 280SE rust problem and new brakes, suspension and carpeting were fitted at the same time with receipts on file to the value of around £4,000. The underneath now looks very impressive. Our vendor has continued to care for this car and has spent some £2,600 on the interior including the fitting of a period radio, a discreet auxiliary connection for MP3 music playback, four speakers, and new carpets were fitted in the boot as recently as January 2017. The leather interior, wood and chrome fittings are in superb period condition, with beautiful patina, in fact, the whole car is excellent. JYY 95J is supplied to auction with an MOT certificate until May 2017, showing an odometer reading a shade over 46,500 miles. To conclude, the 280SE Coupé has a discreet opulence and the smooth 3.5 V8 engine, mated to the creamy automatic Mercedes gearbox, enables powerful but peaceful progress. The rear wraparound screen is redolent of a bygone era and in coupé form, the 280SE offers a significant saving compared to its cabriolet sister. (A best-of-breed example in right-hand drive was sold by Silverstone Auctions recently for £249,750.) Emanating style with a capital ‘S’, these smooth big coupés would be comfortable in St.Tropez, St. Moritz, St. John’s Wood, and even St. Evenage.

The 280SE 3.5 was a cheaper alternative, and a less obviously opulent contemporary of the Rolls-Royce Corniche Coupé. The most prestigious of the 280SE Coupé and Cabriolet variants is the 3.5-litre V8 model made for just two years from 1969 to 1971, the majority of these in left-hand drive. This delightful 1971 example, was, according to a copy of the Mercedes-Benz data card, destined for the UK and was finished in a very sophisticated shade (DB 180) of Metallic Silver, the colour it wears today, with a sumptuous black leather interior (241). The car has benefitted from some restoration work, mainly to the under body

In 1969, a ‘Trans Am’ performance and appearance package was offered named after the nationwide Trans Am race series. In February 1970 the second generation Firebird was launched and was offered with a 6.6-litre RAM Air engine that produced up to 370hp. Chevrolet had managed keen product placement of the Firebird with a Green Firebird appearing in the movie ‘MQ’ Starring John Wayne. This was the first of many appearances by the Firebird in movies leading right up to its iconic role in the Hal Needham Movie series, ‘Smokey and the Bandit’, which sent sales of Firebirds into the Stratosphere and secured it as one of the most iconic movie cars of all time.

The Arnage was Bentley’s top-of-the-range between 1998 and 2009 and utilised the famous 6.75-litre V8 throughout the model’s life although the car was developed and improved when the Series 2 was introduced in 2002. Known as either the Arnage ‘R’ or ‘T’, the Series 2 was refined in all areas, including the engine which now featured Bosch Motronic engine management and 2 small ‘Garret T3’ Turbochargers replacing the previous single large T4. The ‘R’ was the more luxurious car with a softer ride and a more restrained interior and the ‘T’ was altogether more performance focussed with stiffer suspension, engine-turned aluminium dashboard and split-rim alloy wheels with very low profile tyres. This particular Bentley Arnage R was supplied new on 1st January 2005 by Broughtons Bentley to its first owner. Presented in arguably one of the best colour combinations of Moonbeam Silver with Cotswold leather and secondary Nordic Hide, the traditionally elegant cabin is finished with Burr Walnut veneers.

As BMW sales climbed throughout the 1960s across Europe, their attention started to focus on Motorsport and their desire to create ‘The Ultimate Driving Machine’. The first model to reflect this was the ‘2002’, introduced in 1968 and their high-performance version, the ‘2002 Tii’, quickly followed in 1970 with a more powerful engine giving 120bhp, a 5-speed gearbox and uprated suspension and brakes. The chassis is that of the two-carburettor ‘2002 Ti’ uprated with stiffer springs, front and rear anti-roll bars, larger front disc brakes, and wider wheels. In the driveline, the ‘Tii’ has a slightly closer ratio 4-speed gearbox, a stronger clutch, and a longer axle ratio to increase top speed.

Further invoices indicate that a new water pump and a new radiator were fitted, and the distributor was changed for a correct one.

The interior also received its fair share of attention with over £1,000 spent on correctly re-trimming the seats in the original basket-weave style with the addition of new matching basket-weave mats.

1939 4 1/4-Ltr Blown Derby Bentley “Rusty Turner” Special

“A single-seater Bentley racing car that captured the imagination and hearts of the Great British public during the 1930s, has had a temporary export bar placed on it, to provide the last chance to raise the £5,149,800 needed to keep it in the UK.” (Surrey Advertiser) That car, known affectionately as the ‘Bentley Blower’, was originally designed, owned and raced by Sir Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin, and was Britain’s fastest racing car at the time. Birkin was one of the most effusive figures in British motor racing who enjoyed a superstar status comparable to that of some modern-day Formula 1 drivers. His ‘Bentley Boy’ high-society image was combined with fearless driving talent and for a generation of British racing enthusiasts, ‘Tiger Tim’s’ moustachioed, becapped and goggled figure, with his polka-dot scarf fluttering in the slipstream, personified an English ideal. Made primarily of steel, aluminium and wood, the ‘Blower’ was one of the first supercharged Bentleys. In the early 1930s, Birkin and the ‘Single-Seater’ were the darlings of Brooklands, widely regarded as the heart of the pre-war motor racing scene in the UK, and the car still holds the record for the fastest of all production-based racers at that track.

Race Retro Competition & Classic Car Sale

Following the tragic death of Birkin in 1933, the ‘Single-Seater’ was converted into a two-seat roadster, however, a subsequent owner, ‘Rusty’ Russ-Turner reunited the original body and chassis 25 years later, returning the car to Birkin’s Brooklands configuration and securing its long-term preservation in pre-war form. A boyhood Birkin fan and Bentley enthusiast, Russ-Turner had been a long-term admirer of the car. He recalled: “I had never lost my fascination for that car and one day I was at the Bentley Drivers’ Club, Hendon driving tests when a fellow member mentioned rumours that the Birkin single-seater was going to be sold to America. I went to see John Morley who said that nobody in England seemed to want it. In fact, they all seemed afraid of it. So after long negotiations, we came to an agreement, and in the summer of 1964 I collected it from his garage at Colnbrook, west of London, and drove it home to Leatherhead. It carried the two-seat body but Morley had also sold me the original track body as part of the deal. When I climbed behind that wheel it was the realisation of a dream. Ha! I was wearing a white silk shirt, and by the time I got home I was soaked in oil from head to foot!” Sadly, ‘Rusty’ Russ-Turner suffered a fatal heart attack at Silverstone whilst racing the car but will always be remembered as a visionary with Bentley in his DNA.

Which brings us to this wonderful Bentley Special for sale here. One of Rusty Turner’s dream projects in the late 1960s was to convert prewar Bentley saloons into two-seater ‘Sports Racers’ and this is one of three built by the talented Tony Fabian from Shoreham. It was based on a 1939 Bentley, 4 1/4-Litre, Park Ward saloon (Chassis No. B-88MR) which had originally been supplied by Jack Barclay to ‘education expert’ W.H.S. Chance on the 20th January 1939. The Bentley subsequently became the property of a Mr Campbell in Berkshire and, in turn, he accepted £475 from Philip Gowing in 1959 when the car had covered 47,300 miles. ‘Rusty’ Turner got his hands on the car in 1968 and commenced the conversion to a Sports Racer. The overdrive Derby chassis was shortened and fitted with an attractive two-seater sports body, and the engine was modified to accept a belt-driven, Wade low-pressure supercharger running at 3psi.

Finished in BRG with green upholstery, CUY 837 has been enjoyed and well-maintained by our vendor over the years and appears excellent mechanically. It’s generally in very good condition all round with the patina of decades of use and affection. It’s not immaculate, but then you wouldn’t want it to be. It’s enormously quick, intuitive and tactile, sounds tremendous, and emotes pre-war Bentley from every pore. CUY features in a couple of books ‘The 1938/1939 Overdrive Cars’ by Mervyn Frankel and Ian Strang and ‘Bentley Specials and Special Bentleys’ by Ray Roberts. This fabulous Bentley is not a replication but is the creation of, and a direct link to, the man who rescued the World’s most famous Bentley, raced it, and ultimately passed away in it. He designed this car to incorporate all the qualities he liked most in sporting Bentleys. It won’t appeal to everyone, but if it does then don’t miss this opportunity.

This charismatic Bentley has had a long and interesting history since then. It was owned and raced by Victor Gauntlett (Aston Martin) and in his capable hands was credited with the Silverstone Club lap record for Derby Bentleys. Subsequent owners include David Steel, Stanley Mann and Dr Denham before being acquired by our vendor in 2007.

In 1996, Ferrari introduced the 550 Maranello in a bid to revive their fabled line of grand tourers, and the 550 quickly proved to be an overwhelming success. Six years later in 2002, they introduced the 575M Maranello, which debuted a number of updates designed to make an incredible car even more potent. Increasing the displacement of the V12 by 250 cubic centimeters to 5,748cc resulted in a healthy increase in power and torque, giving the 575M a top speed of 202mph. The front end was slightly revised with newer headlights, a modified air intake and front spoiler, and the weight distribution was improved to 50/50. Buyers also had the opportunity to outfit their new car with an F1-style gearbox, which proved to be a very popular option. To help rein in the increased performance, the 575M was also fitted with larger brake discs. Inside, the interior was modernized and refreshed with an updated dashboard, trim, and steering wheel, amongst other minor improvements. We are delighted to offer this left-hand drive 575M for public sale. Sold new to its first and only private owner in 2005 by Ferrari SPA Torino, this simply stunning V12 beast has remarkably covered just 3,299km since leaving Maranello in its striking Rosso Corsa finish with a deep red interior. Our vendor takes enormous pride in his

cars and this example is no exception to the rule. 3,000km ticked by during the first 18 months of its life and the car was then taken straight to the Ferrari SPA Torino on 7th December 2007 for its first service. After that, this vehicle was stored for the next eight years, under its original cover, and was then bought out for the next main dealer service in June 2015 when the odometer was reading just 3,295km. Around 3,500 euros was spent at this particular service and the original service book, along with accompanying photos taken during the service, details the level of love and attention this desirable Ferrari has enjoyed. This vehicle needs to be seen to be fully appreciated, and you could be forgiven if you thought it left the showroom yesterday. All of its original tool kit and literature are present along with the EU registration papers and NOVA. This truly is a very special car and fitted with the F1 transmission, this 575M would be a worthy addition to any collection as a future collectible or thrilling weekend driver. Ferrari V12 motoring at its finest.

This stunning DB3S recreation was completed by Bill Monk (WAM) in 2015. It has covered approximately 280 miles since it was ready for the road. It is the last of only eleven of these wonderful celebrations of the DB3S by Bill Monk and the only one to recreate the style of the later DB3S ‘Works’ cars. Powered by a 3.5-litre straight six BMW engine, with triple Weber 40 DCOE twin-choke, side-draught carburettors it has been fully set up on a rolling road by Janspeed of Salisbury. Output was recorded at a very healthy 230bhp at the wheels with output sheets on file. Bill Monk previously owned two original Aston Martin DB3S’, chassis number 10, an ex-Le Mans car, and chassis number 120, one of only three DB3S coupés ever built. Inspired by his ownership of these legendary motor cars, Bill decided to produce DB3S recreations under the name WAM (William Anthony Monk) using a mould taken from one of the original cars and his extensive experience of restoring and working on Aston Martins. Finished in Aston Martin Racing Green with knock-off wire wheels, chrome spinners, and polished stainless steel side exhaust pipes, this DB3S recreation sounds as good as it looks, with equally impressive performance. The BMW 5-series engine was specifically

chosen, as opposed to a Jaguar straight-six engine, as the BMW unit provides very similar power to the original DB3S engine, sounds very similar, and the exhaust exits on the correct side, unlike the straightsix Jaguar engine. The majority of the running gear is Jaguar. This includes the front suspension (double wishbones and uprights with aftermarket coil spring damper units), the rear suspension (Jaguar lower wishbones, driveshafts and uprights) and with Jaguar servo-assisted disc brakes fitted at all corners. Exceptional attention to detail has been given to the interior, including a period-correct dashboard and steering wheel, along with period-style seats in green leather and matching green carpet. Complete with half and full tonneau covers, spare wheel, and tool set. Since being set up on the rolling road, the DB3S has covered only a few miles with recent outings including a test drive by a previous owner of the original DB3S chassis number 11, who was incredibly impressed by Bill Monk’s work and a high-speed parade around Silverstone circuit at the VSCC Spring Start meeting. This superb recreation will offer its new owner the chance to enjoy and experience the sights and sounds of the legendary DB3S for a fraction of the cost of the genuine article.

This particular 1970 Jaguar E-type Series II Fixed Head Coupé is finished in Regency Red with a Black leather interior and a manual gearbox and was supplied new to its first owner, Phyllis and Charles Butler on 12th September 1970, in Encinitas, California. He kept the car until 29th October 1974 then it was sold to a F.W. Steinberger, who kept the car until his death in 2014. Mr Steinberger was President and Chief Concours Judge of the Jaguar Club of North America for many years, cementing his enthusiasm for the marque further.

Some cars need no introduction and the Jaguar E-Type is no exception. The Series II Jaguar E-Types that were produced from 1969 to 1971 can be identified by their open headlights, no longer with glass covers, a wrap-around rear bumper with the tail lights now underneath, and the front indicators larger and similarly repositioned below the slightly heavier front bumpers. The cooling was much improved, helped by the enlarged ‘mouth’. Series II cars also feature twin electric fans and uprated brakes. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a ribbed appearance and for USspec cars, twin Stromberg carburretors were used. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned, with flick switches being substituted by rocker switches to meet U.S. regulations.

Imported to the UK in 2014 and then purchased by our vendor, the car was professionally converted to right-hand drive in 2015 by respected E-type specialists, Lanes Cars. Whilst this work was undertaken, other jobs were attended to, including: fitting a new engine frame, new front suspension, attending to dents on the underside, a brand new wiring loom, and new Dunlop tyres. The engine was serviced at this time, including fresh fluids. Bills for more than £14,000 for this work are included in the history file. This car is supplied with a Jaguar HeriTAGe certificate, a UK V5C, an MOT certificate until October ‘17, its owner’s operating manual and warranty booklets in their original Jaguar pouch. With Jaguar E-type prices seemingly continuing to soar, this three-owner Series II fixed head coupé is in fine condition and represents superb value in today’s market.

In 1997 Mr Steinberger felt that car would benefit from some attention, and being a concours judge, no expense was spared in terms of parts or workmanship on a thorough restoration. The car was entrusted to Jaguar marque specialist ‘More Than Just Cars’ of Upland, California to carry out the work, which is recorded photographically in the history file. The glass, brightwork, rubbers and interior were all removed, so that the car could be stripped back to bare metal, before being etch primed and refinished in its original colour of Regency Red. At the same time, all the chrome was replated and window rubbers renewed. The interior was treated to a retrim, which included new seat foam, door panels, carpets, dash top pad and a new headlining. A smaller steering wheel was also fitted to alleviate the acrobatics usually associated with getting in and out of an E-Type! The car was also used in many promotional videos and at events, the last being the premiere in Las Vegas of the movie The Mechanic, where the car was driven onto the red carpet by Jason Statham!

Manufactured in 1964 but registered in 1965, this purposeful Lotus Cortina Mk1 is a well-known car in Cortina circles. It’s an early ‘A’ frame model that was later converted to leaf springs when used for ‘Group 2’ Historic Rallying by the French Ecurie Ten Rally Team, circa 1990. This car was owned in the late 1980s by Richard HudsonEvans, known to most in the classic car industry as an auction commentator and regular contributor to all things motoring through ‘Classic Cars For Sale’ and other media, and featured regularly and affectionately in his jottings at that time.

GRO 28C was the subject of a restoration program in 2008/09 and consequently, the bodywork presents exceptionally well, as does the paint, the engine bay and underside of the car, which is corrosionfree.

Introduced in 1989, the Ferrari Mondial 3.4 T was the ‘spearhead for a new generation of V8 Ferraris’ and the final version of the Mondial. The ‘T’ was a reference to the new engine and transmission layout that now saw the engine mounted longitudinally with the gearbox transverse (forming a T), a characteristic of their Formula 1 ‘312T’, which had just won the 1989 World Championship. This set up would become the standard for all future mid-engined V8 Ferraris beginning with the 348 and continuing through to the 360. This is a superb original UK, right-hand drive, 3.4-litre, Mondial ‘T’ Cabriolet supplied to its first owner by HR Owen on the 19th of January, 1990. One thousand and ten Mondial T Cabriolets were built altogether with only 51 in right-hand drive making this example very rare. The odometer currently indicates 14,100 miles, which our vendor believes to be accurate, but the service record sadly has been lost so we are unable to substantiate this, however, there is a lot of additional history with the car. There are consecutive MOT certificates from February 2008 when the mileage was 11,072 and the car has covered an average of around 500 miles a year since then, so it should be possible to take a view.

Launched at the 1980 Geneva Auto Salon, the Mondial was the first Ferrari to depart from the company’s familiar three-digit naming scheme and its name was inspired by their famous Mondial sportsracers from the fifties. The Mondial saw Ferrari return to Pininfarina as its choice of styling house, and it was sold as a mid-sized coupé and eventually, a cabriolet. It was conceived as a ‘more usable’ model, offering the practicality of four seats with the performance of a midrange Ferrari and hopefully attracting a slightly wider audience than their traditionally more focused two-seaters. The car was not built as a monocoque in a conventional way, but instead, the steel outer body was produced by the famous Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Scaglietti, just down the road in nearby Modena and clothed a lightweight steel box-section space frame. The Mondial was the first Ferrari where the entire engine/gearbox/rear suspension assembly was mounted on a detachable steel sub-frame, making engine removal for a major rebuild or cylinder head removal much easier than it had been on earlier models.

The expression ‘no expense spared’ appears to be appropriate and our vendor has lavished much attention on the car since he acquired it on January the 20th, 2015. He immediately sent the car to QV London Ltd. in Windsor and apart from a full service and cam belt change, it looks as though they were asked to deal with every single thing the car needed. They obviously went through the car thoroughly as the invoice for just short of £7,000 suggests. When the Ferrari was as good mechanically as QV could get it, a move to Thames Valley Repairs in Maidenhead was on the agenda and there, over the following months, a further £12,000 was spent on the car’s coachwork including a fabulous respray. The original Magnolia interior trim has been restored and the windscreen was replaced at this point (£3,000). Since then the expenditure has continued with a new factory roof being fitted and the front lower valance and sill plates replaced and painted. All the invoices for the above are available for your inspection. This must be one of the lowest mileage and best-presented Mondials around, and fully serviced, restored and just MOT tested, this cracking cabriolet is ready for spring. In the world of Movies, the Mondial T Cabriolet was memorably driven by a visually-impaired Al Pacino in the 1992 film, ‘Scent of a Woman’. With values of these comfortable and approachable Ferraris hardening over recent years, this may be an excellent chance to enjoy top-down Ferrari motoring on a sensible budget.

The Bentley Arnage was launched in 1998, replacing the legendary Bentley Turbo R. Built by Bentley Motors in Crewe from 1998 to 2009, the Arnage and its Rolls-Royce sibling the Silver Seraph were introduced in the spring of 1998 and were the first entirely new designs for the two marques since 1980 when the Silver Spirit and Mulsanne models were introduced. The new Arnage was to be powered by a special twinturbo version of the 4.4-litre BMW V8, which was developed by Vickers subsidiary, Cosworth Engineering. When Aidan Barclay, the son of billionaire Sir David Barclay, and chairman of the Ritz Hotel, wanted a luxurious conveyance to glide around his myriad business addresses he naturally chose an Arnage. Bought new from H.R. Owen on the 9th June 1998, the accompanying invoice states the car was delivered in Bentley Black with a complementing black leather interior piped ‘Fireglow’, slide and tilt sunroof, and a radio telephone. The service book and a number of letters and invoices within the history file show that Mr. Barclay fastidiously maintained the car up until its sale, at 9,560 miles, to its second owner in November 2009. The Arnage joined a modest private collection that included Bentley, Jaguar, and Alvis amongst others, and during his ownership was lightly used but regularly maintained. This owner decided to convert the car to run on LPG in the interests of economy and this was completed at a cost of some £3,000. This neat LPG adaptation makes a big difference to running costs and has recently been checked and certified.

In early 1940, the United States Department of War had determined it needed a light, cross-country, four-wheel drive, reconnaissance vehicle and was anxious to have one in time for, what may possibly turn out to be, America’s entry into World War II in Europe. The U.S. Army solicited proposals from domestic car manufacturers for a replacement for its existing, ageing, light motor vehicles, mainly motorcycles and sidecars, and some Ford Model Ts. Recognising the need to create standard specifications, the Army formalised its requirements on July 11, 1940, and submitted them to 135 U.S. automotive manufacturers.

It’s a matter of history that ultimately two manufacturers were successful, Willys with their MB (US quarter-ton Army truck) and later, Ford with their GPW (in production designated GP.) Although this wonderful 1943 example has a chassis number starting MB, denoting a Willys, the body is indeed a Ford, an interesting anomaly that may have occurred in a number of ways, either “in theatre” repairs or during later restoration. First registered in the UK on the 20th March 1981, the previous vendor informs us that it was left to a gentleman in a Will along with a Humber Snipe. He decided to lend both vehicles to the Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) Museum at Arborfield, Berkshire, where it remained on display for the last fifteen years until the museum was relocated to Wiltshire in 2015.

In 1961, Lee Iacocca, vice president and general manager of the Ford Motor Company, had a vision. He imagined a car that would seat four people, have bucket seats, a floor mounted shifter, be no more than 180 inches long, weigh less than 2,500 pounds, and sell for less than $2,500.00. His dream became a reality when the Ford Mustang was born. The first generation Mustang was launched in April 1964 with Ford running three advertising campaigns on all three major TV channels across America at the same time. On the first day the car became available, Ford sold 22,000 Mustangs and by the end of the year, nearly half a million Mustangs had found new homes. A range of engines, body styles and extras ensured that the Mustang had a very broad appeal. In 1965 the ‘Mustang GT’ was introduced and featured five dial instruments, thicker roll bars, quick ratio steering, dual exhausts that exited through the rear valance, dual mounted fog lights in the grille, and special lower body side stripes. Another popular option was the ‘Rally Pac’, which added a tachometer and a clock. To this day, the GT models are the most desirable and sought after of all the Mustangs.

three-speed manual transmission and the optional 3.00:1 limitedslip differential. Other options were Power brakes, Power steering, ‘Magic-Air’ heater, two-speed wipers, Deluxe seatbelts, Tinted glass, Radio, Deluxe upholstery, Pistol-grip door handles, and most importantly the Rally-Pac. The extras alone added another $1,000 to the purchase price. Finished in Ivy Green Metallic with a contrasting Olive Green and Ivory interior and a White Vinyl roof, this fantastic car was imported by its current owner in 2015. The car was purchased from a Mustang specialist in America and the vendor tells us it was the apparent originality of the car that appealed to him. The only work that has been carried out to the car in his ownership was a professional respray with the lovely interior, excellent chassis and tidy engine bay needing no attention at all, presumably having been totally restored in the recent past. This sparkling American classic has taken pride of place at various shows up and down the country last year and has always proved 100% reliable.

The Alpine A110 Berlinette was launched in 1963 and soon became a legend in the rallying fraternity through its numerous successes, culminating in a European Rally Championship title with Alpine driver Jean-Claude Andruet at the wheel. By the late 60s, Alpine’s competition record hadn’t gone unnoticed and they were eventually allocated Renault’s full competition budget, effectively becoming the ‘motorsport department’ for the French manufacturer. This close collaboration eventually led to Renault buying Alpine in 1973. The follow-on act to the A110 was launched in 1971 with the Renault Alpine A310, featuring a four-cylinder, 1600cc Gordini engine. In 1976 the model was updated to accept a more powerful 2.7-litre V6 engine producing 150bhp. Weighing just 980kg and housing this improved power plant meant that the A310 was capable of almost 140mph. Like its predecessor, the A310 managed to replicate more competition success as a Group 4 rally entrant, eventually taking Guy Fréquelin to the French Rally Championship crown in 1977.

This particular left-hand drive example was registered new in Germany in 1979 and remained in a private collection for much of its time there. Finished in red with a black cloth interior, the car is in superb condition throughout, and sports the Fleischmann A310 ‘Group 4’ body. Correct, series one, three-stud ‘Gotti’ deep-dish wheels complete the look. Now showing an unwarranted, but believed to be correct mileage of just over 39,500 miles, this car is thought to be the only one of its kind currently residing in the UK. Supplied with an MOT certificate until August 2017, a UK V5C, past invoices, its original handbook, and the workshop manual. This Renault Alpine A310 is a rather special little coupé, very rare with distinctive looks, attractive but purposeful, rather like a French athlete in a German suit. We don’t think it will be very long before it finds a new home.

To emulate the look of the Group 4 Alpine A310s, German-based firm, ‘Fleischmann Tuning’, began offering tuning parts and body kits for road customers to be able to upgrade their cars. These upgrades were rare and much sought after.

The Ford Escort RS Cosworth proved that it was, indeed, possible to follow its legendary 1980s Sierra namesake. Just like the Lancia Integrale and Subaru Impreza, this was a ‘Group A’ rally car for the road - pure and simple. It was actually underpinned by a shortened version of the Sierra Cosworth RS Cosworth’s platform and powered by the same 2.0-litre turbocharged, longitudinally mounted, Cosworth-developed engine driving all four wheels. The car was designed and engineered in Boreham, was styled by noted designer Stephen Harper, and ended up being assembled by Karmann in Germany. The potential of the Escort was seen in its first event, the 1993 Monte Carlo Rally, where Delecour and Biasion came second and third respectively. The Escort continued to be very competitive throughout the ‘93 and ‘94 seasons but it was a ‘one-off’ guest drive by Tommi Makinen that provided the win on the 1994 1000 Lakes Rally. Importantly, and true to Ford’s grass roots philosophy, the Escort Cosworth provided a platform for National Rallying and Club enthusiasts throughout the world to enjoy ‘off the shelf’ competitive support.

In 2012, the car went to Geoff Page racing for a new cam belt, auxiliary belt, and fresh fluids.

The Jaguar Mkll was an altogether more modern and stylish car with a brighter interior and more balanced looks than the model it replaced. The 3.4 and 3.8 were the super-saloons of their day, with the 3.8 being the fastest saloon in the world at the time. The Jaguar MkII saloon was voted ‘Car of the Year’ when launched in 1959 and would form the mainstay of Jaguar’s saloon production until 1967. The car presented here is a 1963 Jaguar Mkll in the much sought-after specification of a 3.8-litre engine, manual/overdrive gearbox, wire wheels, and Carmen Red. This specification and its fully matching numbers status are supported by inspection, corresponding paperwork and a Jaguar HeriTAGe Trust Certificate. This Certificate and a supporting Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club letter (which are attached as a photo on the website listing) state the car was manufactured on the 5th July 1963 and dispatched to South Africa on the 4th November 1963. The nature of this export meant the car was then assembled in South Africa, which was the practice of the day. It was then sold to its first owner, a Mr G E Hinnaar, via John B Clarke’s Garage in Johannesburg. South Africa was secure during this period and labour was plentiful, so luxury cars tended to be particularly well-kept and maintained, plus they had the benefit of being used in a warm and dry climate.

The Crewe-built car’s numbers were impressive with twin-turbo VAG 6.0-litre W12 engines, developed in the Volkswagen Phaeton and stillborn W12 sports car, producing 552bhp and 479lb-ft torque. This prodigious output was fed through a six-speed automatic box from the new A8, and distributed by the quattro four-wheel drive system. 0-60 in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 196mph were significant for a car of this stature. Some six years later, also in Geneva, Bentley unveiled their new Continental Supersports boasting 621bhp and was indecently quick with 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 204mph, making it the fastest and the most powerful production Bentley ever. With a revised ‘tiptronic’ automatic gearbox employing a ‘quick-shift’ system, gear change times were reduced by 50%.

Unveiled in 2003 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Continental GT was a different animal altogether. Very importantly, the car differed significantly from the previous Continental R & T models in terms of its concept: although much of the car is hand-assembled, it is a mass-produced car made in significantly larger numbers. It is not a coachbuilt car. As a result, the price at launch was significantly less than the Continental R (approximately half) and this immediately exposed the car to an entirely different and much wider customer base as a more affordable car.

This particular Bentley Continental Supersports is a 2009, UKsupplied, right-hand drive example, finished in Black, with a half leather/half Alcantara interior, including the headlining and the doorcards. A pair of heated, two-piece, carbon fibre sports seats with red piping sit in the cabin, embossed with the Bentley logo in the headrests. A Breitling analogue clock sits above the satellite navigation panel, which also acts as the rear parking camera control display. Where rear passengers would normally reside, a carbon fibre cross-brace spans the cabin, generating torsional rigidity, showing the real intent of the ‘Supersports’. Sitting on 20-inch silver alloy wheels, the car is fitted with carbon ceramic brakes, adjustable suspension and a host of other options, and is effectively a very luxurious ‘Group A Touring Car’ for the road. The service book shows seven stamps, all from Bentley Main Dealers, the last of which was carried out on 5th May ‘16 when the car had covered 36,035 miles.

Dovetailing nicely with their various motorsport projects, Triple Eight has developed a range of performance road cars including Vauxhall’s fastest ever selling vehicle, the Astra, an achievement that the manufacturer celebrated by commissioning 100 bespoke ‘Triple Eight’ Astra T8 Coupés. A range of modifications were made to the interior, exterior bodywork and chassis of the standard Astra Coupé Turbo (on which the 888 is based). The engine, however, is unchanged - which means 192PS at 5400rpm and 250Nm of torque between 1950-5300rpm from the smooth, 2.0-litre 16v turbo unit. To focus the already sharp handling, the Astra Coupe 888 was lowered, sitting on Eibach springs and dampers. Seventeen-inch ‘OZ Racing’ alloy wheels were fitted, shod with 235/40 Michelin Pilot Sport tyres compared to the standard car’s 215 width tyres. The brakes featured an uprated Ferodo brake pad material, giving improved pedal feel. The Astra Coupé Turbo’s standard interior was also given quite a makeover, including Sparco front sports seats finished in blue and black Alcantara.

The driver line-up for its début BTCC year was Derek Warwick and John Cleland in the legendary Vectra and their crowdpleasing antics still regularly appear on YouTube clips. However, in 2001 the Vectra was replaced by the Astra Coupé and in 2002, the Astra became the car to beat in the BTCC with drivers Yvan Muller and James Thompson alongside Matt Neal in the sister ‘egg-sport’ car. Thompson eventually won the championship with Muller and Neal enjoying successes and the Astra became one, if not the, most successful car in BTCC history.

The Talbot Sunbeam Lotus was one of the most exciting hot hatchbacks to emerge from the 1970s and was originally conceived when Chrysler Group’s competition manager, Des O’Dell, decided that there was a need for the company to create a car that would be competitive in International ‘Group 4’ rallying. The Sunbeam 1.6 GLS appeared to be their most relevant product, so he approached Lotus and offered them one as a basis. Lotus Engineering rose to the challenge and within a couple of months had developed the GLS into a potential winner. As well as their expertise, Lotus supplied the 2.2 type-911 version of their 16-valve, four-cylinder engine coupled to a 5-speed ZF dog-leg gearbox, and also engineered a number of chassis and exhaust system improvements aimed squarely at beating the dominant Escort RS and Vauxhall Chevette HS/HSRs at their own game. Lotus’ efforts were rewarded in 1980 when a Sunbeam piloted by Henri Toivonen won the RAC Rally of Great Britain, and indeed, this would be the last time a rear-wheel-drive car ever took the title. In 1981, the Constructor’s World Championship was claimed by Sunbeam for the newly christened ‘Talbot’ team (having been renamed by new owners Peugeot in 1979). Homologation rules at the time dictated that for a new car to be eligible to compete internationally, it would also have to be offered to the general public and sold in a specified minimum number. In order to comply with this requirement, Talbot set up a separate production line at their Linwood factory to fabricate the body shells, which would then be shipped directly to Ludham Airfield where Lotus would fit the engine, suspension, and gearbox etc. These roadgoing Talbot Sunbeam Lotus ‘homologation specials’ were more than just fast, they certainly looked the part as well. Initially, they were offered only in Embassy Black with Silver stripes and sporting a brace of Marchal spotlights and bespoke ‘double four-spoke’ cast alloy wheels.

and delivered excellent performance. Glowing reports from the motoring press followed, noting the car’s razor sharp handling and rapid pace, indeed, even when driven today, the Sunbeam is still considered a truly thrilling drive, set apart from most by its rear wheel drive balance, beautifully weighted controls, and overall lightness. HFT 690W is one of those rare cars, and has been with its current owner for 21 years, having been enjoyed by six owners since 1981. It appears that this Sunbeam Lotus has had many thousands of pounds lavished on it over the years, keeping it fresh and resulting in a well sorted, very solid and usable classic car and, indeed, a lot of work has been carried out recently. The engine has been taken out of the car and fully rebuilt including new cylinder liners and high compression pistons, new big end bearings, the cylinder head ported and polished, new water pump, rebuilt distributor and all the other things you do when an engine is on the bench. Back in the car, it’s now been run-in, having completed 1,600 miles since its rebuild. Bilstein front struts, rated at 195lb, inside shorter springs have been fitted at the front and matching rears (210lb) and a new anti-roll bar keep the back end firmly planted. The front brakes were rebuilt to standard M16 specification including new discs, cables, brake cylinders, and master cylinder. To finish off, the steering rack was replaced along with new track control rod ends, making sure this focussed little hatchback stops and steers as well as when it left the factory. The odometer currently reads 88,000 miles which, although not warranted, the vendor believes to be correct. With similar cars from other manufacturers achieving well in excess of the guide on this particular car, this wonderful and rare Lotus must surely represent great value for money.

The Triumph TR4 was introduced in 1961 to follow its very successful predecessors, the TR2 and TR3. Code named ‘Zest’ during development, the body was given a more modern and updated appearance by Michelotti but its drivetrain and chassis remained the same using the well proven four-cylinder pushrod unit, albeit with an increased capacity to 2,138cc. Handling was improved by a three-inch wider track and the steering was also updated to a more modern and precise rack and pinion system. Internally, the car gained wind-up windows and the new angular rear end allowed for a boot with a very reasonable luggage capacity for a sports car. Another innovation was the option of an alloy hard top with a removable roof panel that was five years ahead of Porsche’s famous 911 Targa. 40,235 cars were built between 1961 and 1965 and over the years, this car has become one of Triumph’s most popular sports cars.

The braking system was overhauled, a new wiring harness fitted, and an alternator with high torque starter fitted. The very rare Weber DCOE 42s were overhauled and a 4-branch exhaust manifold fitted. The car also benefits from a Mallory twin-spark distributor to increase dwell angle. The interior was completely refurbished, including wool carpets, full seat refurbishment, a new boot board and a new hood. The car has been rolling road tuned and produces 110bhp at the flywheel. The rebuild has only recently been completed and the car has a current MOT certificate until December 2017. It has covered minimal miles since completion and looks fantastic sitting on silver Minilites. Offered at a most realistic estimate, this TR4 is ready for a new home.

This TR4 was originally exported to the dry state of California and returned to Europe in the 1980s being brought back to the UK by a previous owner in 2009. The current owner bought the car over three years ago as a running project, and since then he has treated it to a huge number of restorative works and converted the car from left to right-hand drive.

The 360 Spider is Ferrari’s twentieth road-going convertible and was always designed with a Spider variant in mind. Since removing the roof of a coupé reduces the torsional rigidity, the 360 was built for strength in other areas and Ferrari designers strengthened the sills, stiffened the front of the floor pan, and redesigned the windscreen frame. The rear bulkhead had to be stiffened to cut out engine noise from the cabin. The convertible’s necessary dynamic rigidity is provided by additional side reinforcements and a cross brace in front of the engine. Passenger safety is ensured by a strengthened windscreen frame and roll bars. The use of light aluminium throughout results in the Spider weighing in only 60kg (130lb) heavier than the coupé. Originally supplied by Maranello Sales in 2001, this right-hand drive, 360 Spider was ordered with the 6-speed ‘Electro-hydraulic’ F1 box, finished in GRIGIO TITANIO (3238) with black electric Daytona seats, and a factory upgraded sat nav. It has a complete service history documenting each and every service interval with a stamp at the correct allotted time. The cam belts were replaced during the service in August 2014, and the latest service was completed at 45,570 miles in April 2016. The car has a valid MOT certificate until 7th April 2017, showing no advisories.

The Vauxhall Chevette was a great little town car and was deservedly successful – but not what you might call quick. But that was in standard guise. The HS, aimed squarely at motorsport, was something else altogether. Building a works rally car back in the ‘70s normally meant squeezing your best engine into a small family car, adding big brakes, suspension tweaks, and different gearboxes and axles, to create an ‘homologation special’, then trying to sell 400 of them. Ford had the Escort RS, Talbot had the Sunbeam Lotus, Fiat the 131 Abarth and for Vauxhall, it was the Chevette ‘HS’. The 2,279cc slant-four from the HC range, with a new 16-valve head, was shoehorned into the Chevette’s tiny engine bay and Vauxhall raided the parts bins, coming up with the axle, brakes and suspension from the Kadett C GT/E, and a 5-speed Getrag gearbox and alloys from the Chevrolet Vega. The aerodynamics were improved with a front air dam and rear spoiler in the ‘Droopsnoot’ tradition, the paint was Silver and the interior was Tartan. Only 400 of these cars were ever built and as such, they are very rare and very collectable.

For what it lacks in refinement and on-road enjoyment, there’s absolutely nothing that can touch the Land Rover Defender off-road. It has an incredibly solid chassis, high ground clearance, amazing axle articulation, and four-wheel drive with low range gearing, and can effectively cope with almost anything the elements throw at it. However, up until now, the elements have not troubled the stunning 2010, Defender 90 Pick-up for sale here. It has never been out in the rain. I’ll say that again, 8,222 miles and it’s never been out in the rain! Our vendor has enjoyed some success in business and has allied his creative talents with an ability to clarify what he is trying to achieve and what he hopes to find at the end of it. He obviously applies the same principles to his motor vehicles, as in 2010, when he was looking for a new Land Rover he settled on a Defender 90 Pick-up but felt the need to create something a bit special, and the team at Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations were happy to help. He was not interested in ‘bling’, the opposite in fact, as he was keen to have his new vehicle look as traditional as possible. It was specified with a much earlier grille, the older heavy-duty wheels, and the car was to be painted in metallic ‘Galway Green’, a shade akin to the Land Rover greens of old but just a bit more special, sophisticated without being flash. To fulfil its primary role of

After a run of more than 60 years, the Land Rover Defender finished production on January 29th, 2016, marking the end (possibly) of a true British motoring legend that will be remembered forever, mainly because most of them will still be running!

moving people, a body-coloured full roll-cage was installed, which is surprisingly unobtrusive and serves as a perfect frame for the new canvas top. To add to the comfort of those in the back, the seats are covered in a Leaf green leather, the canvas top has roll-up sides with ‘clear vision’ panels, the rear door swings to the side, and there is a rear mounting step. However, the request that led to a sharp intake of breath at Land Rover was our vendor’s wish for an Automatic Gearbox! Whatever next? Now, we can all conjure up an image of a sturdy Welsh lass with a lamb under each arm, changing gear with her left knee and steering with her right, whilst whistling to her two sheepdogs and balancing a can of Brains Bitter on the dashboard, and I’m sure that there are a few good folk that could manage that, but the majority of newish Land Rover Defenders perform their daily duties in less rural circumstances. In suburban areas, most of these vehicles are used to deliver the kids to school, collect friends from the pub, drop off some feed at the stables and pick up some compost from the garden centre etc. Not jobs usually carried out by the ‘man of the house’, and for those of a slighter build, getting on a bit or with a dodgy left knee, an ‘Automatic’ transforms the whole process. Land Rover agreed, and our vendor was the proud possessor of, what may be, the only Automatic Defender 90 in existence. Otherwise, this vehicle is conventional and powered by the traditional, 2,401cc, 4-cylinder, 120bhp, diesel with which we are all familiar. It’s covered just over 8,000 miles in the last five years and is in the sort of condition that you might expect of a much-loved and well-maintained family car that has never been out in the rain. Sold with a current MOT certificate and all its relevant manuals, this fabulous understated, possibly unique, Land Rover is ready for a new owner. Just don’t get it wet!

The Evanta Motor Company was the brainchild of well known and respected Classic Car enthusiast, Ant Anstead and his partners and the company’s inspiration was to create a range of modern road-going sports cars that echoed the looks and qualities of those achingly beautiful sports-racers of the late fifties and early sixties. They were not replicas, but a marque in their own right, built in the spirit of those Jaguars, Ferraris, and Maseratis upon which we gaze in wonderment at Goodwood, Silverstone and Monaco. Clients were able to specify finishes, trim levels and other details, and the result was a personalised sports car that retained all the charm, character and wind-in-the-hair fun of cars of that period, with modern performance, brakes and road manners. This Evanta ‘D-Type’ Barchetta (Italian for ‘Little Boat’) is finished in period Sebring Blue with contrasting stripes and is a subtle homage to the single-cockpit Jaguar XKD (D-Type) racers of the 60s. The ‘Barchetta’ journey started out as a concept in 2012 and evolved, based on client feedback and daily in-house development. During the evolution, numerous modifications were made to the interior as well as making a number of mechanical and technical upgrades and at the same time ensuring that the car would be fully ‘IVA Compliant’ and road legal, however, it must be stressed that currently, the car DOES NOT have an IVA. Built on a bespoke tubular chassis and using composite and Kevlar to make a one-piece body

shell, the car is powered by the excellent Chrysler 6.2L LS3 V8 producing an ample 470bhp in a car weighing 1,050kg. Features include a 5-speed manual gearbox, fully adjustable suspension all round, power steering, bias adjustable disc brakes all round, full stainless wheels, bespoke cooling and fuel systems. N.B. “As can be seen from the photographs, the car remains incomplete and requires full trimming and some other details. As explained below, ‘The Evanta Motor Company’ are no longer trading, however, Ant Anstead has confirmed that he is happy to carry out the work required to finish this car (by separate negotiation), and that his new company, ‘DOWSETT CLASSIC CAR COMPANY LIMITED’ will warranty the ‘D-Type’ for 12 months for general items (chassis, suspension etc.) provided he is the one who carries out the final work. Any engine/gearbox warranty will be transferred from the relevant supplier (if such transfer is permitted). Basically, it is his intention to look after the new customer. Buyers should be aware that VAT will be due on the final ‘Hammer Price’.” N.B.The ‘Evanta Motor Company’ is now in administration and the company is under the direction of the joint administrators who are acting as agents of the company and without any personal liabilities. The car is sold “strictly as seen”.

The TVR Grantura is the first model in a long line of TVR cars debuting in 1958 and going through a series of developments leading from the I to IV and 1800S models with the last ones being made in 1967. Hand-built at the TVR factory in Blackpool, they came with varying mechanical specifications using Austin-Healey brakes, Volkswagen Beetle or Triumph suspension parts and BMC rear axles.

Lot 946

1960 TVR Grantura Series I

In December 2013, the car was finally finished and since then has been used sparingly. Supplied with its original green buff log book, details of previous owners, and bills for work carried out, this exceptionally rare Grantura is very attractive indeed. As the original model that launched the now well-known and loved TVR Brand, this example represents an exciting opportunity for any collector.

The Grantura bodyshell was made from glass-reinforced plastic and the power-plant could be chosen from overhead valve engines from Ford, a Coventry Climax unit or the MGA B-series engine. This car is a very rare Series 1 Grantura, of which only 100 were made. The 45th off the production line, it is powered by a Ford pre-crossflow 1500cc engine. Purchased by the current owner as a complete project in 2009, it was subsequently the subject of a £25,000 restoration with leading marque specialists. TVR specialist David Gerald took care of the running gear, chassis and engine and the shell and interior were prepared and superbly finished by Mark Goodacre in the stunning period Aston Martin colour of Roman Purple.

The Model ‘T’ survived far longer than it should have done because Henry Ford thought all a car needs to do is get you from A to B. No frills, no thrills. In the early twenties, he had declared that the “T had reached perfection and that there would probably never be any need to change its design”. The decision to change the model, partly to pacify his son Edsel, was made even more significant in that the mass production methods used in the T’s manufacture meant that the whole production line had to be changed, a feat which took almost exactly a year. With thorough planning and programmes to keep the dealers on board, Ford managed to keep it all together without any cars leaving the famous Highland plant during that change-over year. When it did arrive, the all new ‘A’ Model was worth the wait, with the market clamouring to get their hands on this exciting new car. Taking Ford overnight from ‘country cousin’ to ‘country club’, the Model A had a cachet lacking in the workhorse Model T and suddenly film stars and presidents were happy to pose next to one. Longer, lower and better suspended than its predecessor, it was powered by a Howard Hicks-designed, 3,285cc, L-head four-cylinder engine developing 40bhp (twice the Model T’s output) and boasted coil ignition and an integral water pump. Mated to a three-speed manual gearbox, 30mpg was achievable and with a top speed of 65mph, four-wheel drum brakes became a necessity. The vehicle was the first Ford to use the standard set of driver controls, with conventional brake and clutch pedals, throttle and gearchange.

the car for a number of years and it has been part of his private collection. The car must surely be one of the finest Model As in the country. I was lucky enough to own a prize-winning, Model A Tudor that had been restored in New Zealand and it was much admired, however, this car here is certainly the equal of it. Superbly finished in Maroon with Black wings and running boards, a Black textured roof, good chrome, a Cream coach line, and Cream wire wheels with Whitewall tyres, the overall effect is delightful. The interior is equally impressive with well-cut Grey cloth door cards, Salmon Pink woven cloth seat covers, and a new headlining. Mechanically these cars are very reliable with an ample supply of parts and decent electrics (particularly if converted to 12 volts), however, SV8544 appears to have benefited mechanically from the recent restoration and should behave well. The vendor states that “the car always starts on the button and is a pleasure to drive”. Model As are great starter classics, cheap to run, reliable, well supported, and always welcomed by the friendly owner’s club, and one in this condition, offered at a sensible guide, will definitely appeal.

Produced from December 1927, it was available in four standard colours, but not black and a range of body styles was offered, including saloons, tourers, coupés and light trucks. When production finally ceased in 1931, over 4.3 million had been sold in no fewer than 22 different styles. This stunning, left-hand drive Tudor model has been the subject of a comprehensive ‘nut and bolt’ restoration and has only been used a few times in the summer since completion, as can be seen by the photographs of the underneath of the car.

Buying Guide The golden rule for anyone hoping to buy at auction is to thoroughly inspect the lot you are interested in before bidding, as no warranty or guarantee is given with anything that is sold. For this reason the auction centre is open for viewing prior to each Auction (please check times). All bids are final and irrevocable.  

Bidder Registration

You can bid at auction either in person by attending the sale, by telephone, by leaving a commission bid or live online. To meet current legislative requirements, you will need to provide proof of identification in the form of a passport or driving licence and a recent utility bill as proof of address. When submitting forms in absentia, please ensure they reach us no later than 48 hours before the auction is due to take place.  

How fast will the auctioneer go?

The auctioneer will aim to sell approximately 90 lots of automobilia, watches and lifestyle per hour and 20 vehicles per hour.

Bidding at the sale If you are planning to attend the sale in person, please complete the relevant Bidder Registration Form. On production of this form you will be assigned a paddle number. Please note that entry to the auction only is on presentation of this sale catalogue, which admits two.  

Online bidding

Silverstone Auctions has partnered with proxibid. com to allow you to bid live on sale day from anywhere. Registration for internet bidding is done directly on their website. We advise that you register with them at least 48 hours before a sale to allow sufficient time for your registration to be approved. Using these providers carries an additional buyer’s premium charge of 1% for cars and 3% for automobilia/lifestyle and watches.

Telephone bidding** Should you be unable to attend the auction on sale day, telephone bidding will still allow you to bid live. On the day of the sale, a member of Silverstone Auctions will contact you, usually a few lots prior to your selected lots and will guide you through the process. It is important that you provide us with alternative contact numbers to ensure that we are able to contact you on the day. You may wish to leave a commission bid to be used in the event that we are unable to contact you. This, however, is entirely optional.

224

Race Retro Competition & Classic Car Sale

Commission bidding** If you think you might not be contactable on the day of the sale, you may leave with us a commission bid. To submit a commission bid, please complete our Telephone/Commission Bidder Registration form indicating, for each lot you wish to bid on, the maximum amount you are willing to bid up to (excluding commission and VAT). We will execute your bid as low as possible on your behalf. ** There is no charge for the telephone and commission bidding service.

Catalogues Catalogues can be purchased online or by contacting our catalogue subscription department on +44 (0)1926 691 141. Please ensure that you bring your catalogue to the sale as entry is by catalogue only. Whilst your Silverstone Auctions Catalogue admits two persons to the viewing day(s) and the sale day please refer to any specific Admission tickets that maybe required to enter the Event. Further copies of the catalogue can be purchased at the Auction.

Warranties All lots are sold on an ‘as seen’ basis. You may wish to bring a competent mechanic with you to inspect any Motor Vehicles on your behalf. The catalogue will describe the lots to the best of our ability on information supplied. You should, however, satisfy yourself as to the condition, age, and integrity of any lot prior to bidding as no warranties whatsoever are given in relation to any lot. Once the auctioneer drops the hammer, a contract is made and you are obligated to proceed with the purchase. It is therefore vital that you are satisfied with the condition of the lot you intend to bid upon before doing so.  

Charges

Like the vast majority of auctioneers, Silverstone Auctions Limited charge what is known as a buyer’s premium. Our standard buyer’s premium charges are 12.5% of the hammer price on motor vehicles (cars and motorcycles) and 20% of the hammer price for watches, automobila and lifestyle items. Buyer’s premium is subject to VAT at the prevailing rate on the day of the auction.
