LOT 101

1986 BEN BOWLBY SC100

This is the very car that was designed and built by Ben Bowlby and his dad Richard in 1985 and was raced by Ben in Special Saloons from the 1986 season onwards. The car is currently eligible for the CSCC Special Saloon and Modsports Championship. During the time that Ben was using and developing the car, there was a Channel 4 documentary about Ben and the car ‘The nuts and bolts of Ben Bowlby’ (the current owner has this on vhs videos) as well as a YouTube clip of Ben visiting Frank Durney at Lotus to discuss the car’s aerodynamics. Amongst the design innovations by Ben in the early 80s were the flat floor, diffuser, adjustable front splitter and a ride height levelling system which sadly got banned. Whilst Ben Bowlby went on to climb the motorsport design and engineering ladder working for the likes of Lola and Chip Ganassi, his more recent innovations have been the Delta Wing Project and Nissan’s LMP1 car. The car was owned/raced by a number of drivers throughout the early 1990s including Erling Jenson who ran this car at some point as well as Paul Brend and Derek Barrett. The car was always regarded as ridiculously fast for a sub 1-litre car and held the class C lap record for years at Castle Combe being first 1-litre car to lap the Wiltshire circuit in under a minute and at an average speed of over 100mph. Throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, the car still made occasional race appearances but its outright pace was being eclipsed by the newer generation of club ‘prototypes’ such as Radicals and Junos. The car was then bought in mid-2010 by its current owner. His intention had always been to get the car back on track and then enjoy a number of track days before commissioning Simon Green Motorsport

to carry out a full rebuild of the car, and is often the way, this became a full restoration. The engine was removed and all suspension components stripped down, all rose joints checked over and replaced. and the wishbones were media blasted, crack tested and then fully powder coated. The chassis was stripped back too, and all welds crack tested before painting in gloss black. Whilst the engine was removed, a brand new 1,100cc unit was fitted from a ZZR Kawasaki and had one of their modified sumps and oil systems fitted. All the wheel bearings were replaced as were the driveshafts and UJs, and the exhaust system was fully ceramic coated along with new carbon race exhausts. The car even passed noise restrictions at Bedford Autodrome. Finally, it had brand new front and rear sections of bodywork made and these were created from moulds supplied with the car and which will be supplied to the new owner. In addition, the old wooden-based front splitter and rear diffuser were remade using carbon and aluminium to save weight and reduce flex. The last job was to make and fit carbon infills to cover the side pod section, as well as reduce the flex in this area. Offered without reserve, this car represents an incredible opportunity for the ultimate track-day car that will destroy practically anything else in sight. As mentioned, the car is also eligible for the CSCC Special Saloon and Modsports Championship. This amazing car must be seen to be appreciated and is offered in superb overall condition. Not to be missed!

Instantly dubbed ‘the poor man’s E-Type’, the wonderful GT6 was styled by Giovanni Michelotti in response to a brief from Triumph to produce a GT version of the Spitfire. Much more than a Spitfire with a hard top, it featured a fastback body that was so aerodynamically efficient it was later copied by the Competition Department at Triumph for the ‘works’ Spitfire entries at Le Mans. The GT6 shared the same powerful 2-litre six-cylinder engine with the Triumph Vitesse and with 105bhp on tap, could reach 60mph in 10 seconds and topped out at 112mph – figures that comfortably trounced the rival MGB. Launched in 1966, the first cars had the same wayward swing-axle rear suspension as the Spitfire and the Herald but this was ditched in the MkII versions of 1968 for a more conventional reversed lower wishbones set up.

1968 TRIUMPH GT6 RACE CAR

LOT 102

Registration: LRH95G Chassis Number: KC/52006 Engine Number: Not Specified Estimate (£): 12,000 - 15,000

This 1968 GT6 is an ‘entry level’ racer and was originally purchased in Holland nine years ago by our vendor as a ‘rolling chassis’. It was then taken to renowned Triumph specialist, Northampton based ‘Jigsaw’, who set about carefully building the car to ‘Appendix K’ specification. After the work was finished and the car was ready to go, it was entered in the 2013 Porto Historic and acquitted itself well, for a maiden outing, with two fourth place finishes. However, other commitments have meant that our vendor has simply not had the time to spare and the car has not raced since. Offered with a UK V5, a fresh MoT and HTP papers (applied for at the time of consignment), this well-prepared GT6 offers amazing value for someone seeking a low-cost entry into motor sport.

LOT 103

1959 MG A ROADSTER

Officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1955, the MGA was produced from 1955 to 1962 replacing the older ‘T-type’ cars and represented a complete break from the pre-war rectangular style. The MGA’s bodywork was based largely on that of a one-off MG TD specially built by the MG factory at the request of racing privateer George Phillips for Le mans in 1952. Later, a new chassis was designed enabling the driver to sit lower in the car with even cleaner bodywork and this was known as EX 175. This first prototype, in turn, was developed into EX182 and four of these were built for Le Mans in 1955 with the intention of entering the Production Class as they were, effectively, ‘pre-production’ MGAs. When the production date at Abingdon slipped a little, the three green cars (the other was red) were re-entered in the Prototype Class which provided a little latitude for further modifications. In the event, two cars finished in 12th and 17th proving the MGA’s potential. The MGA has been raced extensively since its 1955 introduction and with considerable success, both in period, and in today’s historic race series. Regularly seen at European and UK circuits for many years, this very sound ex-California car, was built in July 1959 and competed in the HARC MG-Competitions-Holland series during the 1990s. Imported into the UK in 2002 and issued with FIA Papers, the car was regularly raced until 2007 when the decision was made that the time had come for a re-commission and update. In 2008 work commenced, and the car was fitted with a new, very competitive, 1950cc engine with Weber 45DCOE carburetor, tubular manifold and big-bore exhaust system, an all-syncro 4-speed MGB

gearbox, uprated suspension using MGB Uprights, larger disc brakes, and 5.5J steel wheel rims. Unlike many UK club race cars, this very sound example retains all the original specification aluminum and steel panels with the addition of a Sebring-style front valance and a full-width low profile front windscreen. The car was then a regular competitor in the popular and exciting “Equipe” GTS race series from 2008 to 2015, and more recently has participated in various other events for 1950’s cars, including those run by the Bentley Drivers Club and Aston Martin Owners Club. Approved and issued with FIA Historic Identity Papers several years ago (now expired), the car has since been sympathetically modified to compete in UK club races, however, with a change of engine capacity and ancillaries, front brakes, and gearbox, the car could once again be made FIA eligible. Safety equipment includes a period style roll hoop with a diagonal brace and door bar, boot-mounted foam filled alloy fuel tank, race seat, harness, fire extinguisher, and electrical cut-offs. We advise interested purchasers to inspect these items to ensure they are within date. A fantastic and competitive racer, eligible for the majority of the best 50’s and 60’s sports car events. A superb opportunity to dip your toe in competitive historic racing and at a competitive price.

The Lotus Cortina came into being because of Ford’s decision to step up their motorsport involvement in the early 1960s. Ford’s Walter Hayes spoke to Colin Chapman, asking him to come up with a competitive saloon, using the Cortina as a base, that could be produced in sufficient numbers to satisfy the mandatory ‘Group 2’ homologation requirements, and with which the Blue Oval could beat all comers. The solution was to take Ford’s bullet-proof 1500 Kent engine, fit it with a twin-cam cylinder head, pop it into a stiffened Cortina shell, sort out the suspension and brakes and paint a green stripe down the side. The cars would be built by Lotus at its plant in Cheshunt, and marketed as the Ford Cortina Lotus. Once fully developed, Lotus-Cortinas absolutely shone on track driven by household names including Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, Jackie Ickx, Roger Clark and many, many more. Unlike many others racing today, this car has genuine period racing history and throughout its 52 years has benefited from constant development. The complete history of this competitive FIA Lotus Cortina is recorded from 21-2-1964 when it was first registered in Vercelli, Italy, to racer Giancarlo ‘Mici’ Giordano. The Lotus was sold in 1967 to its second owner, Sergio Piana, who was also a capable racer, as was its third, Mario Fren, who acquired the car in 1968 and was to keep it for a further twenty-two years. From 2000 to 2011 the car was owned by a fastidious BRDC member who was responsible for its maintenance and preparation, and his intelligent development resulted in the car becoming a recognised front-runner and race winner during his ownership. This level of competitiveness was particularly well respected as it was not achieved at the expense of originality. Since 2011, this car has been raced only a

handful of times by our vendor, who is also a highly experienced racer, and most notably during his ownership this car was leading for a large proportion of the Silverstone Classic U2TC race in 2013. The car is currently fitted with an engine built by the well-respected John Smurthwaite, and we are informed this unit has had only two hours running since new. Our vendor has also added under his ownership a DC electronics supplied, lightweight competition electric power steering (motor/gearbox, ecu, wiring loom) which was bought at a price of £9,000 not long ago. This equipment is a bolted on to the steering column and can easily be removed. What’s also fantastic about this car is that our vendor has gone to great lengths to create the sort of all round package needed to go racing effectively. Generously included with the car, are a zero-hours John Smurthwaite spare engine (normal retail £24K), a spare gearbox built with new internals (£7,500) and a pair of differentials (£3,500 each). Two new sets of Magnesium wheels (at a cost of £1,000 each) and a number of smaller spares enhance this historic racing package, and at a guide price of £70-£80k for the lot, is an opportunity not to be missed. This is a fabulous and rare example of an FIA Lotus Cortina with enviable provenance and decades of period history. The car is eligible for a variety of Touring Car Series throughout Europe, including the U2TC and Masters, and considering the content of the overall package with the spare units, represents remarkable value for money.

This immaculate and special car was built from a lightweight seam-welded shell and features a T45 welded-in FIA roll cage, special front springs and roll bar with Armstrong adjustable Lever shock absorbers by Pete Cauldwell of Worldwide Imports. The rear features special springs with an ‘A’ frame anti-tramp bar and adjustable Lever shock absorbers as well as EN40 steel half shafts, double bearing hubs and a limited slip differential. The new ‘lightweight’ interior features a period Stack dashboard and instruments, with belts and seat all in date.

Owned and more recently raced by the legendary Gordon Shedden, twice British Touring Car Champion and all round nice guy, ‘Flash’ has too many commitments in 2016 to race this particular car, which now represents a unique opportunity to acquire a famous and very successful Goodwood friendly saloon. Run and prepared by the famous Neal family owned ‘Team Dynamics’, who are responsible for the running of the Honda Works cars in the current BTCC. The car is ‘on the button’ and offered absolutely ready to race and win, and is eligible for numerous series - such as the HRDC series for 1950’s cars, and is also a highly likely invitee for the next 1950’s St. Mary’s Trophy grid at the Goodwood Revival. Uniquely, the new owner will also benefit from a test day ‘handover’ if required from Team Dynamics and Flash himself.

The unique engine is prepared and hand built by none other than Neil Brown of Neil Brown Engineering, the man responsible for the build and development of the Works Honda engines in the current BTCC incorporating new parts from MED and Swiftune.

1972 FORD ESCORT RS 1600 MKI FIA RACE CAR

Ralph Broad was a Birmingham-born racing driver and more famously an exceptional engineer. His company, Broadspeed, was part of a huge industry that grew up around the British Motor Corporation (BMC) Mini in the 1960s. Throughout the sixties, the Broadspeed cars were very successful in European saloon car events and the British Saloon Car Championship, winning their class at Monza, Spa, and Zandvoort with their Cooper ‘S’ in 1965. In the same year, John Fitzpatrick won the British Saloon Car title in a Broadspeed Ford Anglia. The partnership with BMC was ended on a friendly basis when Broadspeed’s allegiance moved to Ford, however, successes continued with the Ford Escort and in 1971 John Fitzpatrick won four rounds of the BTCC. Offered here is a replica Broadspeed Escort RS1600 BDA from that period, built by ex-Jaguar and Ford race engineer David Silcox. It enjoyed considerable success driven in New Zealand by Dave Crowther before being acquired by our vendor in 2009. Preparation and engineering input were then entrusted to Mass Racing and a dyno sheet shows the Ford Cosworth BDG with Lucas fuel injection producing 271 bhp at 8500rpm.

All the pick-up points are heavy duty with Koni coil-overs all round.The rack and pinion steering is unique with the rack passing through the front cross member, and discs are fitted all round which are bias adjustable. Weight is kept to the minimum with a fibreglass bonnet, boot, and doors and the rear screen and side windows are Lexan. The bubble wheel arch extensions are steel. We are informed by the owner that the Historic Technical Passport has recently been renewed and the Escort is mechanically ‘’race ready’’. We advise any interested parties to satisfy themselves on the validity dates of the safety equipment. In the hands of our vendor, this wellprepared car has enjoyed outings at the Algarve, Donington, and Masters Historic Festivals. This superb, period correct, 1600 BDA Escort is potentially eligible to compete is some of the finest historic events in the race calendar. With this level of preparation it surely represents exceptional value and is probably one the most rewarding historic saloon car racers on the market today.

1966 FIA FORD MUSTANG RACE CAR

Registration: HOV 117D Chassis Number: 6F09C341372 Engine Number: Not specified Estimate (£): 50,000 - 60,000

UK saloon car racing in the 1960s was epitomised by the battles between the American V8s and the British Lotus Ford Cortinas, Austin Minis and Hillman Imps. They were driven, in this early period of the BTCC, by Grand Prix stars of the day such as Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart and Sir Stirling Moss, as well as saloon car specialists like Frank Gardener, Brian Muir, Roy Pierpoint, Warwick Banks and John Fitzpatrick. It was an exciting and evocative period of motor sport 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.

This car is fitted with a 289ci 4.8-litre V8 engine with new cylinder heads from Modus Engine Services, mated to a 4-speed manual ‘Top loader’ with a Hurst shifter. The interior houses two new Cobra Monaco buckets seats, Sparco 5-point harnesses and a mandatory plumbed in fire extinguisher. Potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality and currency of all the safety equipment in this car. The car was finished and race prepared by well-known specialist Steve Curl, and now looks stunning. Having not completed a race as yet, this car has it all to prove and comes supplied with a UK V5c and current FIA HTP papers valid until 2026.

Presented here is a 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback ‘Shelby Replica’ that has been purpose built to Appendix K FIA specification for Period F - 1962 to 1965. Purchased by our vendor as a road car in 2014, all the rot was cut out and the bodyshell sorted ready to accept a Custom Cages roll-cage that was welded into place, before a bare-metal respray in Wimbledon White with the customary blue stripe.

This iconic car is eligible for many historic championship events such as the FIA Pre-66 GT Championship, 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, hence the passenger seat. It’s a professionally built, full-race, FIA Mustang in the right colour scheme at a very sensible guide. An opportunity not to be missed.

2000 FORD MONDEO SUPER TOURER

In the year 2000, on the back of a (rumoured) £12m budget from Ford, Banbury based legendary race and rally experts, Prodrive, built 3 Super Tourers to contest the 2000 British Touring Car Championship. With factory drivers Alain Menu, Anthony Reid and Rickard Rydell they went on to dominate the championship completely, winning most of the rounds and finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the 2000 British Touring Car Championship final standings. At a supposed cost of £1m each car (and £3m running budget per car) the team dominated like no other before or since. One car was written off during the season, so only 3 of the 4 cars ever built survive today. The ‘Menu’ Championship winning car features in the Banbury Prodrive museum, the ‘Reid’ car is campaigned enthusiastically by noted Ford collector/driver Alvin Powell and this is the only other car (chassis: # Prodrive 004), as driven that season by Rickard Rydell. Bought by the highly enthusiastic current privateer owner from us in 2014, the car has since been campaigned successfully by him over the past 2 seasons in mainstream historic touring car races, including an outright win at the highly prestigious 2014 Super Touring Race at the Silverstone Classic, driven by ex-World Touring Car Champion - Rob Huff - and is a more than welcome entrant into the current great series for period Super Tourers run by Jonny Westbrook and Dave Jarman. The car is ‘on the button’ and ready to race and has been maintained by a professional team, regardless of cost, during current ownership. The latest bill, from highly respected Mardi Gras Motorsport, confirms

1966 PORSCHE 911 SWB COMPETITION

When Porsche introduced their 911 model in 1963 the sports car market throughout the world was taken aback by its great looks, light weight, advanced engineering and outstanding performance and handling. The early cars featured a short wheelbase chassis and a smooth ‘flat 6 Boxer’ engine, of 2.0-litre capacity, that gave the car excellent performance. This was enhanced at the end of ‘65/early ‘66 by the introduction of the ‘S’ variant which gave 158BHP, as well as larger brakes, Fuchs alloy wheels and a close ratio 5-speed gearbox.

More recently its highly experienced UK vendor has raced it on Tour Britannia and in several UK historic races with professional maintenance throughout. The engine is a low mileage 2.0 litre Courage prepared unit running on Weber carburettors coupled to a smooth ‘901’ type dog-leg 5-speed gearbox and lsd. The car has a recent multipoint cage and a 100 litre ATL bag tank, both fitted in 2012, and both FFSA and FIA HTP papers which are currently being updated. The car weighs just 1002 Kgs and is competitive in its class.

This particular car is a 1965/1966 short wheelbase version of the 911 2.0 litre, that has great provenance having been previously owned by noted driver, Alain Schlesinger. He had the car originally prepared for competition by Jacques Bourgoin and subsequently run and maintained by Courage Motorsport in France. Subsequently, it has been driven by some outstanding French drivers in historic racing, including Jacques Laffite, Gerard Larousse, Bernard Darniche and Jean-Claude Andruet.

The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms that the car was actually built in May ‘66, although it runs to ‘65 spec for FIA purposes. These rare early short wheelbase 911s are very desirable for use in competition now, including at Goodwood, and this is an excellent and well-prepared example.

2015 BAMFORD ROSE ASTON MARTIN V8 VANTAGE

This particular V8 was built by Bamford Rose in March 2015 as a racing car to comply with the technical regulations governing The Aston Martin V8 Vantage Cup (class V2) run by Aston Club Racing, forming part of a race series competing with works prepared/Prodrive GT4 cars. The car was developed from a 2007 V8 road car that had sustained a bit of damage (Cat D) in a road accident. The engine is 4.7litre full race GT4 engine built by Adrian Miller of Bamford Rose and is reported to produce 485 BHP. To achieve that output, Bamford Rose tuned equal length exhaust manifolds; 200 cell catalysts along with using ITG air filters and 3-way exhaust control switch to meet track DB noise restrictions. For the driveline, a lightweight flywheel has been used with a twin-plate sintered clutch along with a fully rebuilt and ‘superpolished’ gearbox with all the seals renewed. In terms oh handling and set-up, electromagnetic switchable dampers with a cockpit switch for dry/wet conditions have been fitted along with a much ‘beefier’ rear anti-roll bar. GT4 spec front uprights are preferred with front and rear rose-jointing along with an adjustable rear toe link. Retardation is entrusted to V12 Vantage front and rear brakes (6 pot front and 4 pot rear). Two sets of black painted 19-inch race wheels shod with 255/40/19 (f) and 285/35/19 (r) Pirelli ‘P Zeros’ plus one set of unused Kumho quali / test day tyres are included in the sale. The interior has also been professionally stripped and trimmed by Bamford Rose. They started by removing the airbags and added new Sparco race seats with 5-point harnesses. An FIA /GT4 roll cage was fitted along with a state of the art fire extinguisher system, battery cut off switches and a lightweight heavy duty race battery. The pedals

were re-positioned, the steering lock was removed and a detachable GT4 steering wheel was preferred. The Carbon centre console now houses switchgear and the dash itself was re-trimmed in non-reflective Alcantara. There is a forward-facing camcorder mounted on the roll cage, electric windows are retained for ventilation and the standard door locks are also kept, but the central locking system has been removed along with the alarm. The DSC/ABS/ Traction control has also been retained but has been de-sensitised and re-programmed for circuit driving. The front and rear of the chassis were stiffened with significant weight removal, particularly in the rear, and an easy-up manual jacking system was added. The body panels are all lightweight parts used from V12 Vantage road cars and GT4 spec parts such as the ‘diveplanes’ and an adjustable rear wing help keep the car stable in high-speed corners. As if this stunning car’s dramatic looks were not enough, it’s been finished in head-turning Pearlescent Aston Racing Green with Red and Black accents and White Aston Club Racing square number cards on doors and bonnet. As a result of all this work this track weapon partnered with a prestigious badge weighs 1470kg, offers genuine performance and is also in possession of a UK V5C meaning that, should you so wish, you could drive it to the pub!! All mechanical, and other replacement parts and components have less than six hours running time since this car was converted in March 2015. This is a fantastic all round package enabling its new owner to enjoy track days and the club racing scene whilst looking ‘pretty damn cool’ in the process.

The 2-Eleven is the most ‘track-focused’ road car Lotus has ever built and the emphasis is on the ‘road car’ bit because despite the wings, splitters, launch control, and racing stripes the Lotus 2-Eleven can be driven to the shops. It’s a lightweight track car. It has no doors, no roof and no concessions to comfort. You can’t drive it on the road without a crash helmet, well you could if you like the taste of flying insects, and you don’t really want to be venturing too far from home if there’s rain in the air. However, when the sun is shining and you’re faced with a long ribbon of empty tarmac (country road or local circuit) the Lotus 2-Eleven is just the business. It’s all about weight or the lack of it. Overall, the 2-Eleven tips the scales at 670kg, around 200kg lighter than the Elise ‘S’ (not a heavy car), but packs a whopping 118 more horses from its 252.bhp, supercharged, four-cylinder 16-valve Toyota engine.

Underneath, the Lotus 2-Eleven’s underpinnings are a combination of the original high-sill (and therefore stiffer) Elise chassis and the latest rear subframe, accommodating the transverse mid-mounted Toyota engine. The result is a guided missile that can sprint to 60mph in 3.8 seconds, 100mph in 8.9 seconds and reach 150mph. The 2008 Lotus 2-Eleven here has been enjoyed by one owner and covered just 4,000 miles including a few track-days. The car was completely stripped in 2012 and rebuilt to GT4 spec., including a factory 270ps upgrade, Torsen LSD, Kaz gearbox, full FIA roll cage, single seat fibreglass cover panel, Moroso sump etc. It has just been repainted in Ecurie Ecosse Blue and is in exceptional condition. If picking up the children from school is not part of you daily vehicular requirements, then this focussed little Lotus could be the most fun you have ever had with your clothes on!

The 13-piece fibreglass bodywork is constructed with a material called ‘Coremat’ that is pretty much the strongest non-woven (i.e. noncarbonfibre) material available. It’s also cheaper and easier to produce and the 2-Eleven’s suit of clothes weighs just 38kg.

1973 DATSUN 240Z WORKS RALLY REPLICA

The Datsun 240Z, (latterly the 260Z and 280Z) was the first generation of ‘Z’ two-seat coupés produced by Nissan in Japan from 1969 to 1978. Its dramatic looks owed a considerable amount to a 1960’s styling concept drawn by Count Albrecht Goertz for Datsun, presumably at a time when they were considering ways to break into the European sports car market. The early cars were powered by a lusty 2.4 litre, straight six, overhead cam engine, developing around 150bhp resulting in a 0-60 time of 8 seconds, and a top speed of 125mph. A five-speed manual gearbox was standard and the car featured independent suspension all round with MacPherson struts at the front and Chapman links at the rear. Rack and pinion power steering and front disc brakes meant that the 240Z was a thoroughly modern package. The car complies fully with ‘MSA Stage Rally’ regulations. The body shell has been reinforced with additional heavy-duty chassis legs, added gussets, and has been double seam-welded to ensure it’s as strong as it can be. Mostly steel, the bodywork is finished in the correct shade of Red with Matt Black and is enhanced by a ‘Works’ style GRP bonnet, tailgate and ‘drop’ front bumper.

All this power is transmitted to the back wheels through a heavy duty clutch, a close-ratio five-speed gearbox and an R200 4.3 ratio, platetype limited slip differential. Currently sitting on 6J ‘Minilite’ alloy wheels and Kumho gravel tyres, the running gear includes a quick-ratio ‘Star Motorsport’ steering rack, Bilstein adjustable MacPherson struts, and reinforced wishbones. Braking is handled by 4-pot alloy brake calipers all round, fitted with Mintex M1155 pads squeezing vented discs up front with solid discs at the rear. The brakes are connected via Aeroquip hoses to an adjustable bias bar and a hydraulic handbrake. This potent machine is fully furnished in rally trim with ‘Motordrive’ rally seats, four-point ‘Sabelt’ harnesses, and a custom designed ‘rally’ dashboard fitted with a Brantz Tripmaster. UK registered and presented with a recent MoT and current MSA Historic Vehicle Identity papers, this car is a superb example and perfect for both accomplished and novice rally drivers. Built by one of the best preparers in the business and seldom used, it simply would not be possible to build a car to such a high specification for this price.

The power train consists of a freshly rebuilt 2.9ltr engine producing approximately 240bhp, fitted with a ‘Nismo’ spec rally camshaft, a lightened flywheel, triple Weber 45DOCE carburetors on a Mangoletsi inlet manifold, and a Nismo exhaust manifold with a Tony Law competition exhaust. A 6mm Dural sump guard protects the engine and gearbox, and the fuel tank is protected by a 4mm version of the same.

2007 FORD FUSION NASCAR EX-ROBBY GORDON

Registration: Not Specified Chassis Number: M-20826-AA Engine Number: Not Specified Estimate (£): 20,000 - 25,000

Offered for sale is a very exciting, rare and unusual car in the UK and a first for Silverstone Auctions! A 2007 Ford Fusion Nextel Cup Nascar, built, owned and driven by the legendary driver Robby Gordon. An awesome car that gets the attention of everyone who sees it. The exterior of the car looks like a genuine retired race car, with the odd battle scar adding to the authentic look of a car used in anger in the white-hot pace that is American Nascar.

Prior to being imported here, the car was taken to a Nascar workshop in the USA specialising in the race preparation of Nascars for gentlemen drivers and overall the car checked out very well. The specialists stated there were no signs of any accident damage, with the chassis appearing to be all straight and correct. In fact, the car received high praise from the shop owner who is a perfectionist and typically critical of most cars that pass through his works!

Fitted with a small block engine that has been professionally built by Menards Racing Development, with expensive performance parts such as the Wilson intake manifold, this car also retains its very expensive twin ignition boxes and sounds incredible. It’s enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and grown men cry! At the end of a racing season these cars are typically sold off to the American public as ‘bare bones’ cars, however, this car managed to escape that fate and many of the expensive and crucial parts remained with the car making this a very exciting proposition for anyone wishing to purchase this racer.

Since being in the UK the car has formed part of a private collection which includes many exciting vehicles including a collection of race Ferraris, however, the vendor informs us that no other car in his collection creates the excitement and interest as this Nascar, a car he loves and is reluctantly being sold to slim down his collection. A very rare opportunity to add one of the most exotic and unusual race cars in the UK to your garage and to become the envy of your friends and colleagues. You can now finally pretend to be Cole Trickle in your own garage!

1975 FIA GROUP 2 FORD ESCORT BDG ZAKSPEED REPLICA

Although a Formula One constructor from 1985-89, Zakspeed is better known for its FIA Group 2 Escorts and its Group 5 Capris. They did, however, enter seventy-four Grand Prix and were unique at one stage producing an F1 car with their own chassis and engine; only Ferrari had the same in-house facility. Founded by Erich Zakowski in 1968, they were actively involved in many forms of motorsport and employed many well-known drivers - Klaus Ludwig, Manfred Winkelhock, Jonathan Palmer, Martin Brundle and Bernd Schneider all drove Zakspeeds from F1 to Touring Cars. Built and prepared by Mark Wright Motorsport, this FIA Escort BDG is well regarded and accepted as a fully developed front running historic racer. It is engineered and finished to a very high standard in its recreated form as the famous Europa-Mobel Zakspeed Escort with full MSA and HTP papers. The specification includes an all-alloy Ford 2.0 BDG with custom profile cams, full race-spec head, steel bottom end, dry sump, Weber 50 carburettors, tubular manifold and a race exhaust system. Built by Tracksport, the gearbox is a five-speed Type 9 incorporating special roller bearings and straight cut gears and the rear axle has a special fully floating 4.4 gripper type differential. The front suspension is fully rose-jointed with coil-over damping, alloy hubs and adjustable top mounts. The rear suspension is a four linkage set up ‘A’ frame with top links and inboard coil-overs. It has ‘Monte Carlo’ discs all round with a biased pedal box and the car sits on split rim 15’’ Compomotives, 10”inch fronts and 13’’ rears, wearing Avon slicks. It’s fitted with a new moulded front spoiler and the car is supplied with a spare and the

original mould to deal with the inevitable. The rebuild, in preparation for the 2016 season has now been completed and included the engine, alloy gearbox, back axle and the shock-absorbers. The seat, belts and fire extinguisher are all in-date and ready for the season, and the vendor is happy to provide detailed engineering information and offer advice on set-ups. This Escort holds numerous lap records, fastest laps and has been piloted to a number of overall race wins powered by its very reliable, John Smirthwaite built, 265bhp Ford BDG. The car is a Masters Historic Grp2 Championship winner, HSCC Supertourers class winner and finished a very close third in the closed wheel HSCC support race to the Spa 6 Hours last year. This is possibly the fastest Group 2 Escort available today, and having just had a 2016 ‘turn key’ refresh, this proven racer represents a great opportunity, for a realistic budget, to clamber onto the top step of the podium at a number of prestigious Historic Saloon Car events. Our generous vendor has included in this package a Motor Racing Legends Historic Touring Car Challenge entry into this year’s Silverstone Classic race. The car will come to the auction prepped for the race and if, for whatever reason it doesn’t sell, he will compete it himself in that race which is run out of the paddock directly below the auction hall. So for any potential buyer out there you can buy a rapid Group 2 Escort on the Thursday night and race the car on Friday at one of the world’s largest historic motorsport festivals….

1987 BMW ARROWS FORMULA ONE EX DEREK WARWICK

Having finished 9th in 1984 in the Formula One Championship Table and 8th in 1985, Arrows Grand Prix International had high hopes for 1986 with their new A9 car and its BMW M12 turbo. It wasn’t to be however, and sadly the team ended the year pointless. For 1987, BMW decided they “wanted their ball back” and pulled the plug, leaving Arrows with the promising new A10 but no engine and no money.

The car was purchased by the current owner in 2002 and stored for approximately four years, however, a number of opportunities became available for the car to be displayed and driven at events, so the decision was taken to bring it out of storage and prepare it to return to the circuits. It has since been driven at no more than two events each year with a total of 1-2 hours driving time.

However, Arrows team boss, ex Lotus F1 driver and legendary negotiator, Jackie Oliver, managed to squeeze some support from their primary sponsor USF&G. BMW then agreed to continue to supply engines as long as they were assembled by, and branded as, Megatron. With additional strokes of genius, he brought in Ross Brawn to head up the design team and recruited the highly talented new driver pairing of Derek Warwick and Eddie Cheever. They had driven together as part of the successful Silk Cut Jaguar Endurance Team and were both race winners as well as being notable for being able to provide good engineering feedback.

Recently, the car has been looked after by the very well respected Roger Heavens Motorsport and has benefitted from a partial engine rebuild early in 2016, an extended roll hoop, and the wishbones have been crack tested. The car will have a simplified starting procedure by the time it is offered for sale, and will be supplied with a small number of spares.

1981 PORSCHE 924 CARRERA GTR

Porsche had ambitions to return to Le Mans in 1980 with the intention of running in Group 4 (Sports Cars) and decided to base the new competition car on their successful 924 mainstream model. Naturally, in order to withstand the rigours of 24 hours around Le Sarthe, the full-race cars would have to be substantially different from their ‘shopping’ siblings. Firstly, however, Porsche had to comply with the FIA Homologation Regulations dealing with the construction and quantities produced of a relevant road-car on which the ‘racer’ was to be based. Earlier, in 1979, Porsche had produced a styling exercise exploring possible design elements for future road cars, and this was made public at the Frankfurt Motor Show that year. One of these design submissions involved a much more masculine and aggressive look applied to the 924 and this was well received and later, became a major influence on the shape of the new 944.

24 T H E S I LV E R STO N E C LAS S I C SA L E 2 0 1 6

However, in the meantime, it was decided to apply some aspects of the Frankfurt styling exercise to the existing 924 and the result was the 924 Carrera GT (labelled 937 and 938-rhd). As well as the more dramatic bodywork, all non-essential elements were removed from the car in an effort to reduce weight. Standard specification included a close ratio, dog-leg, 5-speed gearbox, LSD, Bilstein shock absorbers, polyurethane front and rear flared guards, a polyurethane front spoiler, and a bonnet mounted air scoop for the intercooler. With a 2-litre turbocharged engine producing 210 bhp, it will reach a top speed of 150 mph and hits 60 mph in an impressive 6.5 seconds. Porsche made 406 of the 924 Carrera GTs in 1981, including six prototypes. A step up from the GT was the GTS, of which 59 were made in the Stuttgart factory. These were more powerful than the standard Carrera GT, thanks largely to increased boost. The GTS models are distinguished by perspex headlamp covers replacing the pop-up headlights on the GT,

www. s i l ve rsto n e a u ct i o n s . c o m


1981 PORSCHE 924 CARRERA GTR

and an intercooler in front of the engine rather than on top of it. 15 of the 59 were ‘Club Sport’ cars, featuring a roll cage, more power, and less weight than the regular GTS. However, the ultimate 924 in competition terms was undoubtedly the GTR, some of which were available to private customers at a cost of $75,000. Porsche built just 17 examples, of which nine either raced in or qualified at Le Mans. Other examples of the 17 GTRs were raced in Europe, the US and Japan, with one notable exception, this particular car! The GTR benefitted from Porsche’s constant factory development. The intercooler was relocated to the front, as with the GTS, but was much larger, filling much of the nose of the car, and the cars were delivered from Porsche with fully integrated roll cages, fully adjustable suspension, and four-piston 935 brake calipers squeezing larger 31cm discs. The engine was a highly modified version of the 2.0litre motor used in all 924s, featuring dry sump lubrication, which helped it produce 375bhp and 299 lb/ft of torque. The figures were very impressive. Weighing 930 kilos, the GTR was good for 180mph/ 290kmh (more when aerodynamically detailed), and 0-60mph took 4.7 seconds. In 1980, Porsche entered three 924 GTRs at the 24hrs of Le Mans, finishing 6th, 12th and 13th overall, and went on to achieve an excellent class win in 1982. This amazing one owner, 109 kilometres from new, survivor has an even more incredible story to tell. One of only two cars delivered to Japan from new (the other example having been used for racing), the car was brought into the country in 1981 by Porsche importer ‘Garage Italya’. In 1983, after being stored for 2 years, it was purchased by a Japanese

businessman and classic car enthusiast who wanted to add it to his private collection. The car was never raced, but was enjoyed a handful of times on the track at Suzuka and the Fuji Speedway. On each occasion, our fastidious Japanese owner made a record of the distance travelled at each track day. According to his records, the car covered just 109 kilometres in the first 7 years of his ownership, after which the 924 was carefully stored in his two-storey garage, safely in the first-floor attic space accessible by a car lift. The GTR was then removed from storage each year, taken on a trailer to be serviced, brought back, then placed back in position in the garage. From 1981 to 2006 the car was serviced by Porsche specialist ‘Tomei Car Service’, then latterly by Porsche specialist ‘Garage Tool Box’. In the intervening period, the engine was started and run regularly. Offered with a Japanese title document and records of its minimal usage and extensive maintenance, this GTR is surely the best available example of Porsche’s ultimate and rare incarnation of the 924. However, there is much more to this car than that simple background. It is by far and away the most original, untouched and completely unmolested example of any Porsche we have ever seen. It is presented exactly today as the factory built it, even down to the initials on the stickers on the engine management box! It is a complete time warp car and a total one-off investment opportunity, unique in this anniversary year of the Porsche ‘transaxle cars’ and introduction of the original 924 model.

1998 MARCOS MANTIS GT3

GT3 racing is fabulous, but running at the ‘front end’ with so many competitive cars has now become very expensive in terms of the initial team set up and race by race running costs. Whilst thrilling to drive and impressive to listen to and look at, the current crop of cars are becoming ever more complex and costly to run, with life on the major units such as the engine and gearboxes becoming shorter and the financial numbers getting bigger. Sadly, these large initial costs may well result in fewer and fewer people having the privilege to experience the thrill of racing GT3 cars. Thankfully, we at Silverstone Auctions can offer attractive solutions to costly 2016 spec GT3 racing, and this well proven and refined Marcos GT3 is an ideal example. Offered here with a comprehensive amount of spares, (detailed below), this package offers potentially outstanding value considering the amount of kit, and is being offered at a guide price of £30-£35k. Whilst yes, this is not a current GT3 car, but with those current spec cars fetching £300K+ before spares and actual running costs, what better chance for a new team to ‘dip a toe in the water’ of this ever popular and iconic racing scene. The grunt comes from a Chevy LS7 developing approximately 600 BHP with a Motec dash and ECU, whilst the gearbox is a Hewland sequential flat-shift with an Aston Martin DBRS9 differential. The car sits on Dymag centre-lock wheels and has an Endurance fuel tank with quick-fill along with endurance spec front lighting – perfect for Dutch Supercar, GT Cup, Britcar or Belcar. Indeed, this Marcos has been developed by renowned BRDC member and 2016 Le Mans entrant, Ollie Bryant, and has previously competed in four Britcar 24 hour races, resulting in class podiums, along with being the actual car to win the Marcos challenge series in the late 90’s.

A true piece of Alfa Romeo racing history, a genuine factory Alfa Romeo 156 Touring car. This Alfa Romeo has had a very competitive racing career, winning the Campeonato de Italia de Superproducción in 1999, a recognised race car throughout Europe with great success throughout its racing life. Built by Fiat Auto Corse to FIA Super Production regulations in 1998, this Alfa Romeo 156 was used to good effect by renowned touring car team Scuderia Bigazzi to win the Campeonato de Italia de Superproducción with Luis Villamil behind the wheel. Subsequently, it was imported to the UK by GA Motorsports, the team founded by works British and Italian Touring Car Champion, Gary Ayles for use in the British Touring Car Championship. Running in the Super Production Class under the GA Janspeed banner the car was driven in 2001 by Gavin Pyper who gathered great pace, eventually finishing 6th in the championship. In 2002 the car was entered for the full BTCC season by GA Motorsports for Alan Blencowe who finished 7th in the championship, recording three podium finishes. 2003 saw the GA Motorsports team once again enter the car for a limited campaign in the BTCC, where Chris Ryan scored a victory in the opening round at Mondello Park. Subsequently sold, the car was run in the Britcar Production championship by Brunswick Automotive and was raced in the Nurburgring 24 Hour Race in 2005.

This car will require some recommissioning work, but it would make a very exciting prospect to add to any Alfa Romeo aficionado’s collection, or to return to the circuits to be used as its makers intended.

The car is offered in good order with a fresh Brunswick Automotive built 2.0-litre engine featuring steel crankshaft and rods, JE forged pistons and a full race cylinder head. The engine is fitted with Jenvey throttle bodies and runs EFI-Euro 6 engine management together with Magnetti Marelli data logging, all equating to an output of

1960 FORD ANGLIA

Registration: 501 UYR Chassis Number: 105E115195 Engine Number: Not Specified Estimate (£): 20,000 - 25,000

In 1962, Ford introduced the Anglia Super to the range with a higher level of equipment. Engine capacity was increased to 1198cc and it was now fitted with the all-synchromesh four-speed gearbox from the Cortina. There was more chrome, a luxury interior and a heater as standard. Strap on a pair of spot lights and you had a useful rally car. The engine was capable of being modified to produce much more power and it became the motive power unit for various forms of motorsport. The Ford Anglia was entered in the Monte Carlo Rally from 1960-65 finishing consistently above its station, and today rally and racing Anglias are still an important and competitive part of the historic scene and are homologated by the FIA at 997cc, 1198cc and1340cc.

Alex Postan, himself no stranger to motorsport, rebuilt the car for a final time with an Autosportif all steel 1650 cc Ford pre-Crossflow engine, along with a full gearbox rebuild and some other remedial work at a total cost of over £10,000. The car was dyno tested by DTW engines and showed a figure of 151 bhp at 7500 rpm. Raced and rallied in England and on the continent, this car has proved to be an excellent, multi-discipline, tarmac competition car. To the Historic Ford aficionado, it has the ultimate specification: all steel 1650cc precrossflow with twin Weber 45 carburettors and A6 camshaft; the gearbox is a straight-cut, TranX three rail, Rocket ‘box; and the ‘A’ frame rear axle has a Quaife Torsen differential and three-piece competition half shafts.

Offered here is a competition prepared 1960 Ford Anglia with a superb history. A letter in the file from 11th November 1992 states that the car was previously owned by a Mr John Charles D. Smith, at which point it was registered URX 949. The car was eventually passed down to a Mrs P.G. Griffin, daughter of the first owner, who later sold it to a Mr Toplis of Nottingham. URX was built up into ‘club rally’ spec and then sold to well-known Cobra racer John Atkins of Banbury. He persuaded the DVLA to release the iconic Anglebox registration ‘105E’ made notorious in the early days of saloon car racing by the infamous ‘Doc’ Merfield. FIA Appendix ‘K’ papers as a 1200 were gained in 2000 and the car was invited to the Goodwood Revival where it finished 12th of 22 competitors in the St Mary’s Trophy race that included famous names like, Smokin’ John Rhodes, Jackie Oliver, Gerry Marshall and Silverstone Auction’s very own MD Nick Whale. Atkins repeated the exercise the following year before dismantling the car and selling the car to Alex Postan who rebuilt it as a 1650cc Anglia in the style of the Superspeed cars as raced by John Young and Chris Craft.

Finished in dark metallic blue with a silver roof, the cockpit houses two Sparco seats and safety harnesses. There is also a plumbed in fire extinguisher behind the driver’s seat, hidden neatly underneath the original rear seats which still remain in situ. Potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality and currency of all the safety equipment in this car. More recently this ‘Anglebox’ has only made it out into the competitive arena a handful of times, the last of which was at Prescott last year.

This versatile little Anglia is crying out not to be stuck in a garage in the Cotswolds with a doting custodian, but should be back ‘out there’ on the circuits with the HSCC, tarmac rallying, Prescott and Shelsley, or possibly even used as the most fun way to get between pubs on a Sunday morning! Supplied with two box-files of invoices and correspondence, workshop manuals, (now expired) FIA papers and a UK V5c.

1966 FORD CORTINA TO LOTUS MK I FIA APPENDIX K

Starting life on the 23rd June 1966 as a Ford Cortina De Luxe, this car was bought by our gentleman racer vendor, Eifion Jones in 2013. In common with many racing Cortinas, the donor car was converted to full Appendix K Lotus Cortina specification, from a standard Cortina base car with no expense spared. The engine was built by Competition Engine Services to FIA Appendix K spec and runs on 45 DCOE Weber carburettors, producing a very healthy 183 bhp, as confirmed in a copy of the dyno sheet in the history file. The lightweight shell was aciddipped at the start of the process, and all the brackets to convert to ‘A’ frame were fitted, which means it can be easily converted to ‘A’ frame and coil springs if required. The shell was seam stitched and the T45 safety cage was welded in. The doors, bonnet and boot lid are alloy, keeping the weight down to, what our vendor informs us, is a very competitive 756 kilograms. A competition clutch was mated to a Quaife close ratio straight cut gearbox, alloy bellhousing, tail shaft and remote gearchange housing. The back axle was modified for negative camber and fitted with an alloy differential housing, containing a 4:7-1 differential and LSD. Specially made aircraft-quality steel half shafts were added, the front struts were modified for negative camber and fitted with adjustable Ohlins shocks, and the rear leaf springs were mated to adjustable Ohlins shocks. The one-inch anti-roll bar was fitted with increased castor mountings and the brakes fitted with competition pads and linings, bias pedal box and adjustable rear brakes.

Our vendor has a lifetime’s experience of racing, from auto grass to motorbikes, but it was Eifion’s friend and neighbour, former Formula 3000 racing driver, Tim Davies who convinced Eifion to buy a Ford Cortina and prepare it for circuit racing. With this car, Eifion went on to win the CTCRC Class Championship two years on the trot, in 2014 and 2015. At the tender age of 68, Eifion has decided to retire from competition circuit racing and this incredibly “well sorted” race car, is offered with full FIA Appendix K paperwork, dated 21st April 2015 and valid to 2025. The car is supplied with a Swansea V5, dyno sheets, FIA Historic Technical Passport, a spare 4:9-1 differential with fresh LSD and a set of four magnesium wheels. With a total racing time of some 8 hours, this car is ready for the track and eligible for a whole host of race classes.

We were informed by the cars original Japanese owners that the shell was prepared by Fiat Auto Course in Italy from a new, old-stock 155 body shell. Upon completion the car was shipped to Japan, where the build was finally assembled and fitted with the V6 3ltr 24 valve engine, endowing the car with a lovely wail at full song and enviable performance. During the build process, the car was also fitted with a GTV Cup ECU, larger Brembo front brakes, carbon bonnet and boot body panels, front splitter and rear spoiler, CDA air cleaner, Uni Course exhaust system and finished off with 17-inch Techno Mag wheels.

It appears to have enjoyed some competition outings in Japan and since being imported to the UK has formed part of a private collection and not been used in anger on the track. The owner has driven the car on private roads in the UK and informs us the car feels extremely exciting to drive, with a wonderful basso V6 howl, reminiscent of those exciting DTM V6 cars of the period. As with many cars of its ilk, it hasn’t been used for some time, so will require some light recommissioning before the lucky new owner ventures out onto the track to relive those exciting memories of that golden period in Touring Car history.

The TS8 was the second Surtees Formula 5000 design and was based on the team’s Surtees TS7 Formula 1 car. It sold well to privateers and won races in Mike Hailwood’s hands, but engine problems prevented him topping the table in the 1971 British series. Built on the same jigs as the TS7, it had the same suspension, wheels and brakes but used a Hewland DG300 gearbox and the wheelbase was some three inches longer due to the longer bell housing. Like the Cosworth DFV in their F1 car, the Chevy V8 was fully stressed, but the mountings for the rear radius rods were repositioned on the rear bulkhead. This Surtees, ‘TS8/006’, is one of two cars originally owned by Doug Champlin and Fred Carillo of Champ Carr (Capistrano, CA). These cars were run for Sam Posey in the US in 1971 and Rocky Moran in 1972. In 1971, Sam Posey steered this car to second place overall in the Formula 5000 championship finishing just behind David Hobbs’ McLaren. Raced again in the US until 1975 ‘TS8/006’ is then believed to have been owned by Chuck Haines (Can-Am Cars) who kept the car for a number of years but then advertised it for sale in the late ‘90s

John set about restoring the car, crack testing a number of components, and getting the car ‘race ready’. However, just before the car was completely finished, John was persuaded to sell ‘006’ to our vendor in early 2006. He immediately finished the project to a very high standard, applied and received FIA papers and put in an entry for the Grand Prix Masters at Spa, which was to be the car’s first race in over 30 years. Since that race in 2006, the car has been securely stored and is started up on a regular basis. These Surtees F5000 cars were some of the best-looking single seaters of the decade and offered here with a sensible and competitive guide price of £30-£35k, this is a great opportunity to acquire a rare and very fast 70’s F5000 car eligible for a number of championships in the UK and all over the world.

The Austin A40 has played a very significant role in British saloon car racing over the years, starting most notably when Doc Shepherd secured the British Saloon Car Championship in 1960 with an example. Two models were used for motorsport purposes, including the MarkII Farina. With numerous race wins, podiums, fastest laps and pole positions to its name, ‘GFO 117’ is one of the most recognisable cars in British historic motorsport. It’s been a Goodwood Revival favourite for more than a decade where it has finished on the podium of the St Mary’s Trophy races on a number of occasions. Highlights of its recent career include three class wins, along with an overall victory in 2007 and three overall wins in 2008, including one at Spa-Francorchamps. A dominant six wins followed in 2009, followed by a 3rd at Goodwood in 2010. The car continued to set the pace in 2011 with a pole position at the Snetterton HRDC event, followed by a 3rd at the Castle Combe race. The car has been driven by a host of celebrated motorsport figures including Perry McCarthy and David Hobbs. ‘GFO 117’ was recently the subject of a double-page feature in Autosport magazine, a copy of which is available, as well as a complete set of qualifying and race results from the last seven years.

Our vendor purchased the car from Silverstone Auctions at The Classic Sale in 2013 and had well respected historic motorsport preparation company, Rae Davis Racing, complete a full rebuild at the cost of £15,000 for which there are supporting invoices in the history file. At the same time, the 1293cc A-Series engine was rebuilt by Nick Swift costing a further £8,000, and it has only completed one race distance since. The car is offered with a comprehensive package of spares, including a Quaife gearbox, bodywork, Mk1 shell, two Quaife half-shafts, spare standard radiator, spare LSD, spare starter & alternator, front and rear springs and spare wheels & tyres.

Pre-season testing resulted in the March being retubbed (no.26) after an accident at Snetterton. Ian Taylor competed in all major F3 Championships in 1973 winning the Forward Trust Championship outright in a field that reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of aspiring single seater drivers. He also finished fifth in the John Player and sixth in the Lombard North Central Championships.

1958 TRIUMPH TR3A

The TR3 was produced by the Standard-Triumph Motor Company from 1955 until 1957 and was the first British production car to have front disc brakes as standard. It was powered by the ubiquitous Standard 1991cc four-cylinder engine that now produced 100 bhp and the four-speed gearbox was available with optional overdrive which was electrically operated. Performance was more than adequate considering the basic cost of below a thousand pounds, with top speed just over a 100mph and 0-60 a spirited 10.8 seconds. Only one tenth of the production of over thirteen thousand remained in the UK as the TR3 sold very well in the USA and was a motorsport ‘stalwart’ in the Sports Car Club of America. This is a well known TR3A full-race car which has successfully competed in various race championships over many decades, including Thoroughbreds, Swinging 60s, TR Register, HSCC, Top Hat and Masters series. Powered by a 2198cc full steel engine lightened and balanced, 89mm forged pistons, steel crank, ‘Carillo’ rods, tubular exhaust manifold, and a lightweight steel flywheel. Fuelled by twin 45 DCOE Webers it revs to 7,600rpm, and we’re informed produces circa 170bhp at the rear wheels. The engine has just had a refresh ready for the sale and at the same time was fitted with a brand new Stage-3 cylinder head, a new radiator, and cooling pipes.

It was only one year old when Steve McQueen chose to wear it in ‘Le Mans’, the famous car racing film and on the wrist of this major star it soon became an icon. The Heuer Monaco was reintroduced in 1998 and has proven to be just as popular now as it ever was. This example is a Limited Edition no. 64 of only 200.

1952 AC 2 LITRE

“In an AC, you are transported in the lap of luxury: Fine cloth, leather and polished walnut trim, comfortable seating, a general quietness that allows you to enjoy the sound of the smoothest of engines. Surprisingly sporty handling that makes driving a pleasure. Very wide doors for easy entrance or exit, that ‘clunk’ shut with a reassurance that confirms the superb build quality. Wonderful styling that attracts compliments from men, women, children and teenagers alike.” That was a contemporary description of the AC 2-Litre and says it all really. Produced in Surrey between 1947 and 1956, only 1,284 AC Two-Litre, two (and later four) door saloons were ever produced and there were even fewer Drophead Coupés and ‘Buckland’ tourers. The aluminiumpanelled body on a wooden frame was mounted on a conventional steel chassis with rigid axles front and rear with semi-elliptic leaf springs and, for the first time on an AC, hydraulic dampers. From 1951, the car was fitted with hydraulic brakes all round.

Registration: TBA Chassis Number: TBA Engine Number: TBA No Reserve

A 2-door saloon tested by ‘The Motor’ magazine in 1948 had a top speed of 80 mph (130 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 19.9 seconds. A fuel consumption of 23 miles per gallon was recorded and the test car cost £1,277 including taxes. Offered here is a rare 1952, AC-2 litre ‘barn find’ that’s been with our vendor for over 20 years – hidden away in a dark corner. Finished in Maroon with a Blue leather interior and 44,706 miles indicated on the distinctive speedometer, the car stands completely ‘square’ and appears sound and all there, although every aspect of the car will need to be restored with the possible exception of the interior which could potentially be reused. Time just hasn’t been available for our vendor to commence the restoration project, so today the car is offered in true barn find condition and at No Reserve. There is an active owner’s club for these cars and parts are more available than you might think for something so rare. When fully restored this car would be an excellent example of an elegant, early-fifties, sporting saloon and would be an exciting restoration project.

AC’s 1991cc engine was first offered by the company in the AC16 in 1922 however, by 1947, the engine boasted a power output of 74bhp which increased again in 1951 to 85bhp. With its light alloy block, cast iron cross-flow head, chain-driven overhead camshaft, and triple carburettors this six-cylinder engine was very advanced for its day.

When Ferrari introduced the Testarossa in Paris in 1984, it was regarded as possibly the best car Ferrari had ever built but, whilst the design was spectacular, it was not considered to be as sensually beautiful as numerous GT Ferraris of the past. As a complete departure, Pininfarina had designed a modern, aerodynamic and efficient body shape, immediately recognisable by its very distinctive side ‘strakes’ unlike anything else seen in the post-war period. The name ‘Testarossa’, literally Redhead, became synonymous with Ferrari sports racing cars in the 50s and 60s and was resurrected at the launch of this new model at the Porte de Versailles in 1984. Housing a 4.9-litre V12 engine producing 390bhp, the car was capable of a respectable 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 196mph. Produced between 1984 and 1991, some 7,177 Testarossas were made in total. Once again, time showed Pininfarina’s design to be durable, and throughout the eighties, the distinctive ‘strakes’ were echoed in other design disciplines from cars to kettles. However, although the design may have seemed to be ‘of the moment’, the Testarossa proved itself to be a well-built car, and despite its ‘Eigerrivaling’ list price, turned out to be Ferrari’s most successful model ever. Today it’s a design icon, symbolic of eighties culture, and despite a period in the “boondocks”, its popularity is returning rapidly. It’s not a surprise really since the Testarossa offers a rare package of serious performance, practicality, and reasonable comfort and although a little heavy at low speeds, its confidence-inspiring handling at high speed becomes almost addictive. First registered on the 6th March 1987, this left-hand drive, European market, Testarossa is finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero interior and contrasting Red carpets. It was delivered new to the Italian market through Milan dealer ‘CREPALDI’ and its first owner is recorded as

GEFINA S.p.A.. The early service history indicates that its first service was at CREPALDI on 28/4/87 and the next entry was considerably later, on 28/7/98 at GARAGE ZENITH in Switzerland with mileage unrecorded. A later owner presumably used the car between Monaco and Kent, as there is history of a cambelt change and annual service at Kent High Performance Cars on 18/1/03 (30,352km) and further services in Kent (27/04/03- 35,807km) and CAVALLARI- Monaco (25/06/04 - 37,961km). The car was imported from the South of France in early 2013 and went straight to Foskers Engineering for a replacement cambelt and annual service resulting in a bill for £2,800. A further £1, 500 was spent at Autoclass MK on 14/08/14 attending to some brake issues and repainting of spoiler due to stone chips. Our vendor acquired this Testarossa in 2015 to add to his collection, however, a change of circumstances now mean it is being offered for sale. In order to present the car in an absolutely sale-ready condition, our vendor left it with Keys Motorsport at Silverstone in early April, and they have carried out a further cambelt change (at 51,000km) with some additional work (invoice for £4700.00 in file). The wheels have been stripped and repainted and the Ferrari was then MoT’d, fully valeted, and is now ready for inspection. This immaculate Testarossa is accompanied by its cherished plate, D12 FER, and a box file containing a fairly comprehensive history, import documents, service records, invoices, the Ferrari tan leather book wallet, an original brochure(in German), injection manual, wiring diagrams, a parts list and various related publications. All in all – a super package.

2015 NORTON DOMINATOR SS NO. 50 OF 50

The original Dominator was a 500 twin designed by Bert Hopwood during the winter of 1947/48 to compete against Triumph’s Speed Twin. Bert had been on the Speed Twin design team at Triumph, and Norton hoped that he could bring some of that expertise to the table. They must have been pleased with his efforts as the Dominator sold well from its initial launch in mid-1949, and developments of this design set the pattern for Norton twins for the next 30 years. It’s now five years since Norton returned to production under the control of Stuart Garner, a youthful entrepreneur who’d made a fortune in fireworks before buying the ailing marque in 2008. His first model, the Commando 961, was a stylish retro roadster, conceived by an American engineer and Norton expert who had run out of money. Garner revamped the Commando prototype, brought it to market and has since been producing small but increasing numbers while expanding the business around it. The latest piece of brilliant motorcycle design to emerge from Norton is the Dominator SS. Over the past few years most major motorcycle manufacturers have introduced a model that has a ‘Retro’ look, and in most cases, it’s purely cosmetic, and certainly this new bike looks every inch the archetypal British ‘Café Racer’. However, like the closely related Domiracer, a nonroad-legal model of which just 50 units were built and quickly sold in 2015, it’s essentially a carefully engineered version of the Commando 961. Its 961cc, parallel-twin engine is identical to the Commando’s, complete with old-style pushrod valve operation. The modest maximum output of 80bhp is unchanged, although the limited-edition SS comes with a free-breathing exhaust system that adds a few horsepower. Additional design features of the SS include a polished yoke set and instrument surrounds, polished rear sprocket, billet foot

controls, carbon airbox, carbon tail end with Union Jack livery, carbon front mudguard, flyscreen and rear wheel mudguard. The tank is hand made in aluminium or painted steel with the option of a Union Flag or Chequer design. The exhaust is ‘Euro 3 standards’ in stainless with megaphone style silencers, it’s suspended on ‘Ohlins’, and the brakes are ‘Brembo Monobloc’. Anyone with an ‘engineering eye’ can look at this bike and instantly see that no expense has been spared in terms of material quality or design solutions. With only 50 of these special Dominators built, and with demand exceeding supply, Norton were naturally keen that they went to ‘good homes’. The company Principal retained No1/50 and our vendor was lucky enough to secure No50/50 which is the bike offered here. Our vendor was able to make a good case to Norton when he mentioned that his Grandfather, Edward ‘Ted’ Smith had owned a series of Nortons in the Thirties and was involved in racing them in the Isle of Man. In fact, in 1937, Ted had taken part in the Senior Manx Grand Prix on his 498cc Norton International, with some support from the factory, and had finished a commendable 21st with a best lap at 69.73mph! Other members of the family had owned Nortons at different times, so it was obvious that Nortons were in the family DNA. Dominator SS No.50, which has covered less than 10 miles, is now reluctantly for sale as a move to Switzerland is on the cards and space will be limited. This fabulous and rare motorcycle is not just a collage of sixties styling cues, but the living embodiment of a name that has stirred the soul of bike enthusiasts for over a hundred years – The Norton Motorcycle Company.

Designed by BMW Head of Design, David Robb, the R1200C was BMW’s attempt to tap into the Harley Davidson cruiser style market and was a significant departure from their previous endeavors. An advance promotional placement of the R1200C in the James Bond film “Tomorrow Never Dies”, ahead of the first deliveries to dealers was a real coup for the company’s Marketing Department and ensured a global audience. The BMW R1200C is a Harley-Davidson rival with German engineering. Like most cruisers, it sells on looks. The power characteristics of the R1200 are typical of large capacity twin cylinder cruisers where low down torque is more desirable than outright speed. Dynamically it’s better than many of its rivals thanks to quality engineering and light(ish) weight. With its low centre of gravity, lengthened wheelbase (1,650mm) and modern suspension, BMW’s radical cruiser has pushed road-holding standards, arguably, even higher.

1997 TVR CHIMAERA 4.0

The TVR Chimaera was launched at the British Motor Show in 1992 and, unusually for TVR, the ‘show’ car looked as if it was actually production-ready, and so it proved. At the time, TVR were basking in the adulation heaped upon the Griffith, and the Chimaera only served to reinforce the perception that here was a home-grown manufacturer capable of mixing it with the big boys. The ‘S’ series of cars were, at the time, still selling well, but with the advent of the Chimaera, TVR’s management knew that their immediate future was V8 powered. Both the ‘S’ and Griffith range were all-out sports models, and the Chimaera’s emphasis was slightly softer, but it was all fairly relative and in Blackpool parlance soft and TVR are not normally bedfellows. Legend has it that during the styling of the Chimaera, TVR boss Peter Wheeler’s dog, Ned, took a bite out of one of the foam models. Wheeler decided that he liked the new styling feature and incorporated the recesses to house the front indicators! The Chimaera’s underpinnings were based on the Griffith’s, which were in turn based on the Tuscan racer. Different dampers and an anti-roll bar were fitted, as was a more accommodating boot to reinforce the new car’s Grand Touring image. This 1997 TVR Chimaera 4.0 litre, registration number ‘P200 TVR’, was supplied new by Christopher Neil Ltd and first registered on the 1st of March 1997. It’s been enjoyed by its one registered owner from new and has covered a mere 33,000 miles, impressively supported by a comprehensive service history with some 13 stamps in the book (11 of these being carried out by Christopher Neil) and a history file with 16 MoT certificates present. Powered by the ubiquitous Rover 4.0-litre V8 engine producing 240 bhp, and with the car weighing only 1060kg, it is said to go extremely well. The vendor informs us that “it drives as it should with no apparent faults, and everything works as it should.

There are no known issues, no overheating, the gearbox and axle are silent and the engine is holding the makers oil pressure when hot”. Finished in ‘Put your Sunglasses on’ Red with similarly coloured carpets and a contrasting Grey leather interior this TVR is in excellent condition perhaps explained by the fact that it has been kept under cover in a heated garage all its life.The invoice file also contains the details of the car being ‘Waxoyled’ on 3/9/04 and 15/4/09. P200 TVR is presented to Auction with an MoT certificate valid until April 2017 which was issued with no advisories and was last serviced by Christopher Neil 17/11/15. The Chimaera is without doubt one of the best ways to access the joys of TVR ownership. Less intimidating and more thoroughly sorted than the Cerbera and Griffith models, it nonetheless offers 95% of the thrills with a tiny dash of practicality. If you are contemplating buying a TVR, you will doubtless be aware that they have one or two little peculiarities, and the best way to minimise potential pitfalls is to find a one-owner, low mileage car that has been well looked after, which is exactly what we have here. But, no matter, it’ll all become worthwhile as soon as the road opens up and you hear the growl of that big V8.

1958 AUSTIN HEALEY FROGEYE SPRITE

The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small, open sports car which was announced to the press in Monte Carlo on 20th May, 1958, just before the Monaco Grand Prix. It was intended to be a low-cost model that ‘a chap could keep in his bike shed’, yet be the successor to the sporting versions of the pre-war Austin Seven. The Sprite was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, which received a royalty payment from the manufacturers, BMC. It first went on sale at a price of £669, using a mildly tuned version of the Austin A-Series engine and it shared many other components from existing cars to keep costs down. The little Sprite quickly became affectionately known as the ‘Frogeye’ in the UK and the ‘Bugeye’ in the US, because its headlights were prominently mounted on top of the bonnet, inboard of the front wings. Originally the designers had intended that the headlights could be retracted, with the lenses facing skyward when not in use; but costcutting by BMC led to the flip-up mechanism being deleted. The front sheet-metal assembly, including the bonnet and wings, was a onepiece unit, hinged from the back that swung up to allow access to the engine compartment. The 43bhp, 948cc engine was upgraded with twin 1 1/8” inch SU carburettors.

To provide a more spirited drive, a fully rebuilt 1275cc A-Series engine has been slotted into place, with fast road cams, new pistons, valves, new radiator and fully rebuilt 1 1/4 SU Carbs, with breathing via a 3-branch manifold. Mated to the engine is a professionally rebuilt gearbox and differential, and with the added power, a disc brake conversion was decided upon. A new wiring harness, integrating the Lucas spot lamps with the main headlights (Lucas P700 ‘Tripods’) was fitted. All the original gauges were reconditioned, making the dashboard look sharp and the rest of the interior was trimmed in dark blue with a light blue piping to complement the colour of the paint and an Avanti steering wheel fitted. Nice period accessories such as a Speedwell pedal, BARC club badge and lap belts complete the look of this lovely ‘Frogeye’ Sprite. Having covered minimal mileage since the restoration, any potential buyers would be advised that a period of running-in of the engine would be advisable. Supplied with a recent MoT and a V5c, this beautifully finished Frogeye Sprite will certainly put a smile on your face and will charm onlookers wherever it goes.

Presented here is an original right-hand drive, home market supplied, Mk1 Austin-Healey Sprite despatched from the factory on 21st June 1958. The Heritage certificate in the file shows that the car left the production line fitted with toughened glass, a heater, rev counter, windscreen washers, front bumpers and a miles-per-hour speedometer. Our vendor, a chartered mechanical engineer, purchased the car two years ago as a classic in need of a full restoration. The body was totally stripped and media blasted, before having new floors, new sills and new 1/4 elliptical mounts. The shell was then returned to its original colour and painted professionally in Speedwell Blue.

1993 FERRARI 348 TB

Introduced at the 1989 Frankfurt Motor-show, the Ferrari 348 was a truly innovative design utilising a robot-welded sheet steel monocoque that not only broke with Maranello tradition but also brought considerable gains in torsional rigidity and dimensional accuracy. The newcomer was powered by a longitudinally mounted ‘quad-cam’ 32-valve 3405cc V8 (originally found in the 288 GTO) allied to fivespeed manual transmission. Developing some 300bhp and 238lbft of torque, the two-seater had need of its all-round independent suspension (with wishbones, springs, telescopic shocks, anti-roll bars and revised geometry), larger ventilated ABS disc brakes, self-locking ZF differential and rack-and-pinion steering. 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. A near performance match for its Testarossa ‘big brother’ (contemporary road tests spoke of 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds and a 171mph top speed), the two also shared a number of styling cues. Though, the similarity was unsurprising given that both models were clothed by Pininfarina and featured side-mounted radiators. The 348 was equipped with a dry-sump system giving it a lower centre of gravity and to prevent oil starvation at high speeds and during hard cornering. The oil level can only be accurately checked on the dip-stick when the engine is running due to this setup. The 348 was also fitted with adjustable ride height suspension and a removable rear sub-frame to speed up the removal of the engine for maintenance.

The suffix TB came from the transverse gearbox and closed ‘Berlinetta’ body style. After numerous improvements incorporated into later cars, including to the suspension geometry, the 348 was replaced by the F355 in 1994. EVO magazine’s Henry Catchpole wrote a very in-depth article in February 2015, where he drove and critiqued a Ferrari 308, 348, F355, 360 and F430 against a 458 Italia, saying about the 348TB ‘‘I’m excited because it’s instantly obvious this car has some of the best steering, possibly the best, that I have ever sat behind.’’ To see the full article follow: http://www.evo.co.uk/ferrari/458/12164/ferrari-458-italia-meets308-348-f355-360-and-f430/page/0/2 The car offered for sale here is a 1993 Ferrari 348TB, being just 1 of 130 UK-supplied RHD cars (Chassis: ZFFKA35C000092832). It was first registered on the 25th August 1993, making it one of the later cars, and hence benefitting from the factory-issued updates to the model as it evolved.

Ever since the 300SL of the mid-fifties, Mercedes-Benz has upheld its SL range of convertible GTs as the zenith of its engineering abilities and design flair. Introduced in 2002, after some five years in development, the R230 Series SL Roadster was certainly no exception to this tradition. Painstakingly modelled on a state-of-the-art supercomputer which enabled the designers to analyse every curve and line, it looked utterly sensational with an air of barely contained aggression that gave it huge road presence. Packed full of sophisticated electronic driver aids which made it immensely safe but also fun to drive, it was an instant hit with press and public alike and is widely considered to be the best-looking Mercedes for many years. The power-operated aluminium folding roof was particularly admired and would disappear into the top of the boot at the press of a button in just 16 seconds, yet still leave enough room underneath for 206 litres of luggage space.

Capable of ballistic pace when required, it also excelled as a sybaritic cruiser with 24mpg economy and there can be few finer ways to cross a continent. The only snag was the £75,000 price tag which restricted ownership to a privileged few. That original list price will not trouble the purchaser of today’s 2006, 500SL which has been enjoyed by two owners and only covered 4,787 miles from new. Indeed, our current private vendor has only covered 300 miles in this car since he bought it in 2008 to add to his collection, and it’s now offered for sale having recently been sent to his local Mercedes dealership for a service, health check and a fresh MoT prior to our auction. This is an enormous amount of motor car offered at a very attractive guide, and with the mileage indicated, is barely run in and ready for many more miles of powerful, enjoyable cruising.

First of the R230 range was the SL500 with its 5.4-litre V8 engine which produced 306bhp and a hefty 339ft lb of torque, all this power being delivered through a silky-smooth, 7-speed automatic gearbox. Even in a substantial body with lots of electronic toys and a folding alloy roof, it was capable of propelling the SL through 60mph in just 6 seconds with the (limited) top speed of 155mph comfortably achieved on the right stretch of road.

From 1961, the E-Type evolved and improved with every iteration from the original Series 1 Coupés and Roadsters, through the Series II cars of the late 1960s, until finally the Series III arrived in 1971, this 5.3 V12 only being available as a convertible or a ‘2+2’. The Series III was built on a slightly longer wheelbase with appropriate chassis modifications and larger, more effective brakes in the hope of coping with the turbine smooth, 272bhp delivered by the V12. The grille was enlarged and the beautiful lines were enhanced with flared wheel arches. It now had the ride quality that could match any of its GT rivals, and with power steering and the, newly optional airconditioning, it possessed the civility and approachability that would make it attractive to a slightly more reticent customer base. 7,297 Series III 2+2s are recorded as having been sold worldwide before production ceased.

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 5,500 cc, 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 - made a superb drivers car! This particular 550 Maranello has an interesting past history having been formerly owned by the great Sir Geoff Hurst MBE, the living legend of football and hat-trick scorer when England last won the World Cup in 1966.

1979 LOTUS ESPRIT JPS SHOW CAR 1 OF 2

Registration: YTF 238T Chassis Number: 78100495G Engine Number: CC907780915417 Estimate (£): 30,000 - 40,000

The Lotus Esprit was launched at the 1975 Paris Auto Show and would evolve on a regular basis with its shape being influenced over the years by the pencils of three very well-regarded designers, Giugiaro, Peter Stevens, and Julian Thomson. Initially it was going to be called ‘Kiwi’ but eventually it followed with Lotus tradition of every model name starting with the letter ‘E’ and ‘Esprit’ was the result. It also followed in Lotus’ tradition with its sparkling performance owing much to the car’s “lightness”, or more correctly, lack of weight with the early cars weighing only 1000kgs. It was well received and noted for its fine handling and lively power output from its Lotus ‘907’ 2.0-litre 4 cylinder engine. The chassis was more than capable of handling various increases in power and by 1980, Lotus had introduced the 2.2-litre turbocharged Limited Edition in the colours of their Formula One sponsor, Essex Petroleum. However, a couple of years earlier in 1978, they had commemorated the success of the Lotus 79 and the World Championship for Mario Andretti by finishing some S2 Esprits in the distinctive Black and Gold of John Player Specials.

34. Anyway, Lotus are absolutely clear that it was the second car off the line and one of the two Show Cars.

Extensive research and correspondence with Lotus have established that this was one of two ‘Show’ cars used by Lotus at the October 1978 Motor Show and subsequently in their promotions. The Lotus ‘Certificate of Vehicle Provenance’ tells us that it was manufactured in early October 1978 as an S2 Commemorative Edition finished in Black (L15) and was later supplied to Station Garage in Taplow. At this point the car was known as ‘002’ and carried out its glamorous duties and magazine tests as ‘002’, however in those days the build numbers were generally allocated by the sales team and it’s believed that a mix up occurred and that number may well have been allocated to another customer or that the car had been forgotten as it was being finished and detailed by the ‘Show Team’, and so technically this car is Number

The substantial file accompanying the car contains a number of V5s, MOT certificates (25), a collage of invoices, an original Esprit brochure in mint condition, an immaculate copy of the John Player 1978 British Grand Prix Program, the Lotus CoVP, and a letter from Andy Graham at Lotus Cars confirming the significance of this particular car.

From the V5s we can see that this Esprit has been enjoyed by a number of owners and the history file bulges with dozens of invoices containing information about the ups and downs in the life of this iconic Lotus. There is way too much to detail here but suffice it to say that for the last 15 years the car appears to have been looked after by Christopher Neil and latterly by Paul Matty, both men of immense reputation within the world of Loti. Our vendor acquired this JPS Lotus in December 2012 to use and enjoy. He is the proprietor of a well-respected company that specialises in the restoration and preservation of Classic Porsches and is particularly fastidious about having his personal cars absolutely ‘right’. Naturally, he has a number of interesting cars to ‘play with’ and recently the Lotus has been scarcely used, so the time has come for someone else to enjoy it.

If you have always fancied a Black and Gold Esprit, it would be really cool to own a famous one.

1948 BUICK ROADMASTER CONVERTIBLE

“Buick’s the Buy” - “Look this eye-filling smoothie over and make note of the happy news. You bet! You can have DYNAFLOW on the Roadmaster.” (The Michigan Daily, 1948). In 1948, the fourth generation ‘Roadmaster’ Convertible was the Buick Motor Company’s top of the range. Powered by a 5.2litre (320cu in) Fireball 18, it was 18 feet long and weighed 2,100kg. The car was styled by the legendary Harley Earl and it was obvious from his reintroduction of chrome and the return to flamboyant ‘swoopy’ lines that the austerity of World War Two was becoming a memory. For the ‘48 model there were a number of changes including a ‘Series’ script on the front wings and the white ‘Tenelite’ steering wheel that had been used previously was traded in for a black one, in order to match the change from a two-tone wood grain instrument panel to a two-tone grey one with silver tone instruments. A new optional custom trim option was offered, consisting of cloth upholstery with leather bolsters with the robe cord cover and lower door panels trimmed in leatherette. Convertibles acquired power windows, seats and top as standard equipment. However, the biggest advancement was the introduction of ‘Dynaflow’, the first passenger car torque converter transmission. Optional on the Roadmaster in its first year, it was so popular that by the following year it was standard equipment.

This 1948 Roadmaster is fitted with the much hyped Dynaflow transmission and has been in our vendor’s possession since 1974, with the accompanying V5 informing us that it was imported into the UK from Belgium on the 21st of June 1954. As can be seen, it’s in classic ‘barn find’ condition and requires total restoration. The validity of such a large undertaking is aided by the fact that as a result of a ‘49 Roadmaster Convertible starring in the film “Rain Man” with Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise, Roadmaster Convertibles from the late forties/early fifties are now seriously ‘cool’. Consequently, a number of these, comparatively uncomplicated cars have been, or are being restored and there is now very good availability of parts and panels, which is good news as some of the interior and most of the chrome appears to be missing. This restoration is one for the brave, however, when finished this stylish American film star would be welcome anywhere.

1972 FORD ESCORT RS 1600

The original Ford Escort was introduced at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1968 and soon became a commercial success as an attractive small family saloon. Ford had, for a number of years, used active participation in motor sport as a means of getting their showroom doors swinging on a Monday morning, and the new Escort was to prove no exception. Popular at club level in every discipline of the sport, it was at International level that the name ‘Escort’ became synonymous with winning. 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 result and the ensuing acclaim prompted Ford to produce the famous Escort Mexico (1.6 L ‘Kent’engine) road version in honour of the rally car. One step up from the Mexico, the Escort ‘RS1600’ was developed using an engine that was essentially a detuned Formula 3 unit designated BDA (Belt Drive ‘A’ Series). Both the Mexico and RS1600 were built simultaneously at the now famous Ford Advanced Vehicle Operations (AVO) facility located at the Aveley Plant in South Essex. As well as higher performance engines and sports suspension, these models featured strengthened bodyshells, making them ideal for rallying. Even today, Mark I Escorts are still very popular in the Historic Rally scene with their reputation for a great balance of power and handling, making them true driver’s cars. The BDA engine emits a distinctive and appealing ‘growl’, which can be heard for quite a distance when the vehicle is being driven hard. Estimates suggest that only around 1,137 RS1600s were produced in total.

The car offered for sale today was first registered in the UK on 11th February 1972 and was purchased by the current owner to form part of his collection. He has kept the car in a dehumidified garage and cherished this extremely collectable road-going example. The speedometer is reading 3,490, which we believe is the total mileage covered since this car underwent a ground up restoration. There are bills in the history file from renowned marque expert Andy Stapley Motorsport who has maintained the car, and there are also dynamometer testing sheets that show an impressive 167.8 bhp @ 6200 rpm. According to a number of sources, we understand there are less than 50 RS1600s registered or on SORN in the UK. The vast majority of these have been extensively raced, rallied or exported and have lived hard lives. As a result, it is very unusual to find a road car finished to such a high standard. The Le Mans Green paintwork is superb with excellent shut lines and has been completed to a very high standard. The interior is completely standard and correct, and the engine bay is spotless. This immaculate 1972, RS1600 sits ‘all-square’ and presents really well in its period-correct, bright green. It’s ‘on the button’, has a fresh MoT and is crying out to be used.

The Datsun 240Z was unveiled to the press in October 1969 and made its public appearance a few days later at the Tokyo Motor Show. To say it was well-received would be an understatement with its stylish modernity, well set out interior and lusty six cylinder engine. It was effectively a modern Healey, virtually capturing the sports car market worldwide and eventually production at the Shatai’s Hiratsuka plant could not keep up with the demand for the rakish new 240Z. Offered here is a one-owner, 56,000 miles, left-hand drive Datsun 240Z in remarkably original condition with a very evocative history from new. Finished in Monte Carlo Red with a Black interior, it was purchased new in Georgia, USA in May 1971 by its sole owner Richard Friese, following a combat tour of Vietnam. It remained in his possession, rarely leaving his hometown until arriving in the UK, having been bought directly from him in 2014. There is a fascinating letter of authenticity from him confirming the car’s history and his 43 years of ownership of this rare Series 1 coupé. This faithful 240Z had accompanied him from his days as a youthful recruit at Robins Air Force Base, to his re-assignment to The Pentagon and through every aspect of his eventful life until his retirement in 1999 and beyond.

1936 SINGER NINE LE MANS SPORTS SPECIAL

In the early 1930s, Singer & Co. Ltd.(later to become Singer Motors) was in a reasonably secure financial position although lagging a distant third behind rivals Austin and Morris in numbers produced, hampered mainly by a lack of factory space. The 8hp Junior was selling well, but in a fairly dramatic move in 1932, they launched the much more sporting Nine using a 972cc, 26.5bhp version of the overhead cam engine in an entirely new chassis with hydraulic brakes. A tentative sortie into endurance racing using a Nine Sports resulted in a respectable 13th. place at Les Vingt-Quatre Heures du Mans in 1933 and the decision was made to capitalise on this new international success by introducing a new model called the “Le Mans”. This version was powered by a 6 cylinder overhead camshaft engine of 1493cc fed by twin one and a quarter inch SU carburettors and featured a fourspeed close(r) ratio gearbox, dry plate clutch, spiral bevel final drive, four wheel hydraulic brakes and half elliptic front and rear springs with friction shock absorbers. Body changes included the addition of an externally mounted 12-gallon slab fuel tank, fitted with a quick action filler cap and twin rear mounted spare tires to complete the competition look. Clothed in a very attractive body with a racing fuel filler and twin spare wheels, and looking every inch the “little racer”, the Le Mans proved irresistible in the mid-thirties to a public enjoying a rapidly improving standard of living, becoming interested in the now fashionable sport of motor racing and to whom the black days of World War 1 were a distant memory and the next conflict only a glimmer on the horizon.

Rally based around the Berlin games of that year. Three Gold Medals were awarded, one for the driver, one for the co-driver and one for the car! This Singer Nine Le Mans Speed Special was purchased approximately forty years ago by our late vendor. The owner was the well-regarded motorcycle ace Alf Peatman and regular Silverstone Auctions followers may remember him as the owner of the incredibly rusty Ferrari Dino and the white project Aston Martin DBS we sold in 2014. Apparently, this little Singer had sat at the rear of his local garage for many years and was about to be scrapped, when Alf bought it for a few pounds in the 1970s and set about restoring the car completely. He was not one to use his cars an awful lot and, on completion of its restoration it was never registered and sat in his garage alongside the Ferrari and Aston until he passed away in 2014. At this point, the family intended to keep the car, however, a change of plans means it is now being offered for sale. Since 2014 the car has been lightly recommissioned. The engine runs and the car will drive under its own steam, however, it’s essentially just as it left its 40-year resting place and will need further inspection and re-commissioning to make it roadworthy and presentable once again. An excellent basis for a full restoration or a sympathetic preservation as this car has a wonderful patina and a great story to tell.

Unique is a word that is often incorrectly used but the Singer Nine Le Mans is unique in that it is the only car, ever, to have won an Olympic Gold Medal when the legendary Betty Haig won the 1936 Olympic

This rare UK delivered SM was first registered on 20/08/75 to Peter Borender of Chipping Sodbury and he was the car’s custodian until May 2000. He appears to have been particularly fastidious about keeping records, as there are a considerable number of invoices in the history file relating to his expenditure during his 25 years of ownership. All the initial work was carried out by Citroen in Slough including full services on 13/6/78 (18,000 miles) and 14/1/82 (36,000 miles) and there are a dozen invoices totalling just over £2,000 from Citroen up until November ‘83. On the 8th of May, 2000 our Citroen came into the possession of its second owner, a Mr. Murphy from Kendal and he in turn sold the car to our vendor in October last year. During Mr. Murphy’s tenure it appears the car was in possession of an MOT most of the time with a couple of periods of SORN. The most recent MOT whilst the car was owned by him was on 29/07/15 with a mileage of 67,026. There are only two invoices for this period (in the file) from Dave Ashworth Citroen in Blackpool amounting to £4,000. Our vendor purchased this SM with the intention of keeping it for family use and decided to go through the car completely until it was exactly the way he wanted it. Immediately after his purchase in December the SM spent some time with ‘Export 56’ who fitted a new windscreen and at the same time “Stripped the paint from the roof, bonnet, N/S wing and door, etch primed, repaired and prepared the surfaces, and painted those panels blending it in to the existing paint.” Other minor areas of body work were addressed at the same time. The car was finished to the appropriate standard and registered in his wife’s name and returned to the road on 11/12/2015. Shortly afterwards on 29/12, five new tyres and a new battery were fitted.

the car was left with marque specialist Andrew Brodie in North London whose brief was to examine every aspect of the car and assess what it would take to return it to as near ‘perfection’ as was achievable. Since then Andrew Brodie Engineering have been working through a long list of jobs over £11,000 spent, the details of which are in the file. In late March the entire interior was replaced with a Black Leather one which interestingly had come from the car once belonging to Mike Hailwood. Apparently John Surtees had given him the new SM after he had won the 1972, F2 Championship and Mike had decided to replace the leather interior with, presumably, cloth. Perhaps Mr. Hailwood had seen enough of Black Leather to last him a lifetime. A change of plans, however, now mean that this amazing car is being offered for sale. In addition to a large number of MOT Certificates, (including the latest on 14/04/2016 at 67,417 miles), the V5C, and the large invoice pile, the car’s box file contains a1972 UK Market SM Press Release, an original 1972 Sales Brochure, a ‘Thoroughbred and Classic Cars’ 1974 Road Test, a repair manual and some photographs of the recent bodywork restoration. These were very advanced, innovative motor cars when they were first introduced and are now difficult to find and sought after. They are inevitably complex and require specialists to carry out maintenance, so finding one that has been gone through ‘stem to stern’ is a rare opportunity.

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 anti-lock 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.

1971 ASTON MARTIN DBS VANTAGE

Introduced at the October 1967 Motor Show, the DBS was the successor to the famed Aston Martin DB6, although the two ran concurrently for three years. Styled in-house by William Towns, the aluminium-bodied four-seater had a sharper, more Italianate look than the curvaceous DB6 but still exuded road presence and looks mighty impressive even today. Longer, wider and more luxurious than the DB6, the DBS employed a platform-type chassis with independent suspension all round: wishbone and coil spring at the front, De Dion with Watts linkage at the rear. Autocar judged it superior to the preceding DB6 in many areas, offering four full-sized seats in addition to transformed handling and road holding courtesy of the new suspension and standardised power steering.Presented here is a 1971 Aston Martin DBS Vantage, chassis #5701/R, with a manual gearbox and one only 70 RHD Vantage specification cars built by the factory, and is offered from a small private collection. Believed to have left the factory painted red, the early history of the car is not present but the first MoT, from August 1977, records the mileage as 46,655 miles. An invoice from renowned marque specialist, Robin Hamilton, dated October 1980 made out to a Mr S. Herbert of StokeOn-Trent, documents bodywork repairs that were carried out at that time. These included stripping the paint on the left front wing & door, removal of rear wing panels and air vent to gain access to inner panels to remove rotten metalwork, strip down the left-hand door and re-weld and fit new metal, refit of door and repaint front & rear wings - all this work was done for the tidy sum of £970! Further invoices from the aforementioned specialist documents cylinder head work and engine tuning, for which the carburettors had to be rebuilt before a rolling road test was carried out, resulting in an indicated 160 bhp at the wheels.

In August 1988, the car was purchased by a Mr R. Foy of Romford from Autoclass Classic Cars of Finchley, London. A letter from the proprietor of the above-mentioned classic car dealer states that the odometer was reading 31,645 miles at the time, but in fact, the total mileage was 131,645 miles which correlates with the host of MoT certificates in the file. Before Mr Foy took delivery of the car, both floor pans were replaced and the car was given a full respray in Storm Red two-pack paint. In 1990, the Stratton Motor Company rebuilt the cylinder head, replaced a faulty piston and fitted all new pistons rings, along with fitting new big-end shells. At this time the carburettors were rebuilt and the engine re-assembled at a cost of £2,582. A Mr M. Williams of Holywell was to be the next keeper of this DBS Vantage from February 1994 to 2014. Under his stewardship, he kept a log every time the car received attention and in 1998 an unleaded fuel cylinder head conversion was carried out by the Aston Workshop. Presumably off the road for a couple of years, the log shows the Aston was back in action in 2003. Our vendor then purchased the car in 2014 and has used the Aston sparingly, attending the odd local classic car show and studiously avoiding wet weather.

The perfect candidate for a full restoration, or simply a car to drive and enjoy, the choice is yours....!

Manufactured in 1965 and first registered in April 1966, this gorgeous, original, home market RHD Series 1 FHC is offered from long-term ownership having been cherished by our vendor since 1995. The history of this particular E-Type is varied to say the least, and can be traced back to 1978 when a Mr. P. Shakeshaft of Surrey owned the car. In 1980 it appears that the car was being stored in a barn at the Cross Keys Pub in Llandfyllian, as security against a loan to his brother, however, in 1989 the property had to be demolished and the car was sold for the princely sum of £7,000 to a Mr. A Richards. Having languished for almost a decade, the car by this stage was starting to look rather sorry for itself, and Mr. Richards commenced a comprehensive restoration, logging approximately 900 hours of work which appears to have been carried out at a meticulous level. The bodywork was taken back to bare metal and any rusty areas were addressed and lead-loaded as required. The front chassis frame was replaced as were all the suspension joints and mountings.The mechanics of the car were, of course, attended to at this time with the engine and differential being fully rebuilt, whilst the gearbox was checked and deemed in good order. A new bonnet was fitted and the wheels were replaced with brand new sparkling chrome wires. All the new parts were purchased from Martyn Robey. Once this mechanical work had been completed, all the brightwork was refinished and the car’s original Dark Green colour was replaced with many coats of Carmen Red using high specification Dupont paint applied with the ‘Pressure-pot’ system, as per the factory.

Mr. Richards would keep the car until 1995 when it was sold to our vendor, a director of Top Gear in its heyday throughout the 1990s. It was as a result of encouragement by the presenter, Quentin Willson, which ultimately cemented his decision to buy an E-Type. After searching the length and breadth of the UK, our vendor finally settled on the car offered here and, of course, it was promptly featured in the show later that year with Jeremy Clarkson at the helm. The car would become quite the TV star over the following years being used in “The Car’s the Star” where (with some artistic license) it was seen to be approaching the famous 150mph top speed. E-Type ownership has been infectious for our vendor and the car is seldom unused, being driven as intended whenever possible. It’s occasionally allowed to stretch its legs, being treated to Goodwood and Castle Combe track days along with the odd blast up Prescott Hill. Of course, to be driven enthusiastically it needs to be in excellent mechanical order and has, indeed, benefited over the years with uprated brakes, more efficient cooling, a new clutch, new wishbones, electronic ignition, and a wealth of other new parts. Presented with a fascinating history file, this car is a very honest example indeed. Whilst it may not be a perfectly restored matching numbers example, nor finished in its original colour for that matter, this fantastic E-type is a true driver’s car and embodies the essence of sporting Jaguars. Equally loved as it is used, we certainly hope the new owner can achieve as much enjoyment as our vendor has in his 21 years of ownership.

Work included upgrading engines to 224bhp (with the potential to exceed 400bhp with extra boost in race trim), and numerous aerodynamic enhancements including a 30mm lip spoiler applied directly to the rear edge of the tailgate to increase rear downforce. New and larger cooling ducts for both the brakes and the engine intercooler were added at the front in addition to a larger and more effective chin spoiler, known as a ‘splitter’. The car was only available through 90 nominated RS specialist dealers and was sold for the price of £19,950. This stunning Ford RS500, Tickford Build no. 296, is finished in the classic colour combination of Black with an attractive Grey Cloth interior. It was first registered on 30/09/1987 to Gordon Nash of Ferndown and it remained his property until sold to a private collector (our vendor) on 04/02/1999 with an indicated mileage of around 19,550 miles. Since then, it has covered less than 100 miles in his possession and has formed part of his collection for over 17 years languishing happily in his heated showroom and started and moved around on a regular basis. He has never actually registered the car and the V5 shows Mr. Nash as its only owner.

Prior to the sale, on 13/5/16 with an indicated mileage of 19,589, the car has benefited from a full service, including cambelt, by Tremona Garage, the Ford RS specialists in Southampton and our vendor has told us that their telephone number is 02380775829 and his contact, Richard, knows the vehicle well and would be happy to talk to any interested parties. The service records are complete and up to date and are in the car’s history file along with MoTs, the original purchase invoice, details of the performance upgrade and correspondence from the Sierra RS500 Register. The indicated current mileage of 19,640 is warranted and the spare wheel has never been used. For a number of reasons, RS 500 Cosworths can often have a bit of a chequered past, however, E798 RRU is a very honest example with a completely transparent history, in excellent original condition and should not be missed.

In 1996, the car was sent to Hendy Ford Motor Sport where it was fitted with a new exhaust system and a “Performance Package” which included F1 Injectors, Group A Actuator, chip and 3-Bar Map sensor hardware. The original invoice can be found in the extensive history file.

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. 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 the 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. In common with most Ferraris launched in the 1980s, the Mondial received several updates until it was discontinued in 1993. The first iteration was dubbed Mondial 8 and was sold for roughly three years, between 1980 and 1982. Production ended at 703 units, about 12-percent of the total Mondial run in 13 years.

bad shape at all but will definitely need a light to medium restoration. The odometer indicates 35,000 kms, which may well be correct, but there is no history or paperwork with the car that can confirm this although we understand it was originally registered in Italy. A NOVA number will be issued prior to the sale. Looking at the car, it appears a very solid basis for a restoration with the interior needing most of the work In the past Mondials have not been seen as the most desirable of small Ferraris, however, with the passage of time, their smooth looks, willing engine and excellent handling are now gaining respect. Parts are available and this model is comparatively easy to work on, so this car, at no reserve, must surely be the most affordable way into Ferrari ownership.

The 1981, 3-litre Mondial 8 for sale here has spent many of its recent years hidden in a barn, but has now managed to escape and is ready for a new owner. The car is complete, starts and runs, and doesn’t look in

First shown in London at the October 1966 Earls Court Motor Show, the Jensen Interceptor had a model life of three years, being superseded in October 1969 by the Interceptor II. Only 1,024 of the original cars were built and, of these 923 were right-hand drive automatics. Jensen started as a coachbuilding firm in the early 1930s, and after a period putting their distinctive bodies on other manufacturers products, the company started producing their own sports cars. Oddly enough for a company experienced in both design and coachwork, the Interceptor was designed by Carrozzeria Touring in Milan and the early cars were bodied by Vignale in Turin, however production returned to West Bromwich before too long. The Interceptor has become one of the classic GT cars, favoured by Royalty and Rock Stars alike, and known to be smooth, quiet, very refined and easy to drive. This rare right-hand drive, automatic, Mk.I Interceptor is an original UK car first registered on 5th March 1968. The car remained in the UK until 2007 when it was exported to the continent where it currently resides with our Belgium vendor and former owner of Raidillon Watches.

At this stage in the car’s life, it was finished in a non-original shade of Red and so the choice was made to fully strip the incorrect paint and return it to its original colour of Crystal Blue. Whilst the car was being painted, all of the brightwork was removed and refinished, and when returned to the newly resprayed body the results were simply stunning. The wonderful Italian-styled cockpit presents very well with what, at first glance, appears to be the original interior showing only nominal signs of wear. While the car was previously UK registered, it’s currently registered in the EU so it will have a NOVA identity applied for at the time of sale, and will be accompanied by its history file containing many past invoices. A striking blend of Anglo-Italian with a dash of Americana under the bonnet, the Interceptor Mk.I certainly ticks all of the boxes.

It has clearly lived a much-cosseted life and whilst it was still in excellent condition, the decision was taken by our vendor to treat the car to a sympathetic restoration in 2014/15 at a cost of approximately €30,000. The car was subject to a mechanical overhaul with the fitting of many new remedial parts in the engine bay including a new radiator with dual fans to cure the occasional overheating issues of the early cars. The engine was also partly dismantled and checked for any damage or wear.

1958 AC ACE BRISTOL


The AC Ace first appeared at Earls Court in 1953 and epitomised a new era of British post-war sports car production. The owners of AC, Charles and Derek Hurlock, along with AC agent, Ken Rudd, transformed the company’s reputation by taking a racing special and putting it into production, with notable stylistic influences from Italian sports cars of the era. The result was a car that delivered both on the road, and particularly on the track thanks to the input of racing chassis designer John Tojeiro. Tojeiro employed the same simple tubular laddertype chassis with an aluminium body that he had used in his earlier specials. However, the Ace boasted all-round independent suspension by transverse springs (the first British sports car to do so), ensuring superb handling with minimal body roll and plenty of feedback. Such was the success of the Ace chassis, it became the foundation for the mighty Shelby Cobras with over three times the power of the original 105bhp, Weller designed, six-cylinder engine. The outdated AC unit eventually made way for the more refined Bristol straight-six, which had evolved from the pre-war BMW 328. The Bristol engine was far more suited to racing, as demonstrated with some success by Cooper, and in its standard form developed 128bhp at 6000rpm. Consequently, it is the Bristol-engined Ace that is most sought after by collectors. Chassis number BEX406 is a Bristol-engined Ace originally delivered to British Columbia Sports Cars in Canada on 3rd February 1958. According to the AC Owner’s Club, the original colour was Svecia Red with a Black leather interior and the car has recently been returned to this original colour scheme. By all accounts, the car was mainly set up for road use and had lived an easy life in Canada prior to repatriation to England in 1990. The car was discovered and purchased at this time, by respected AC specialist, Brian Classic, and he shipped the car back to England and had it converted to right-hand drive. It was purchased by a Mr C. Cadogan-Rawlingson of Suffolk, an AC Owner’s Club member, in 1991 and he was its custodian for 18 years. A Mr O’Connell acquired BEX406 in 2009 and had the engine, clutch and gearbox rebuilt by engine specialist Nick Finburg. This was carried out in order to compete in the 2010 Spa 6 hours, Dijon-Prenois and Sir Stirling Moss Trophy for pre-1961 sportscars at the Silverstone Classic. In 2013, the car was

purchased by its current owner, who has enjoyed it on road-rallies and at the 60th anniversary ACOC race at Silverstone in 2014. Works carried out in the last 500 miles have included a suspension rebuild, and a complete overhaul of the rear axle, brakes, and steering amongst other mechanical components. The aluminium, foam-filled, fuel tank holds 45 litres and feeds the fuel through a high-performance fuel pump, regulator and filter. The cooling features a deep core aluminium radiator with a Kenlowe thermostatic controlled fan and Evans waterless coolant. The ignition has been supplied by IN Racing and features a competition programmed electronic distributor. A new starter motor and alternator have been commissioned in the style of a period dynamo and all of these recent improvements have resulted in a car that inspires real confidence when driven. Additional features include a removable roll bar and full harness seat belts, both FIA approved, electrical kill switch, rear fog light, Brantz rally timer, calibrated gauges, good Avon tyres, all weather equipment and a removable hard top. One of the most appealing features of this AC Ace is its originality. The engine is the original ‘D’ series unit and is mated to its original gearbox with the all-important overdrive. Being one of the later Bristol engines, this car produces 128bhp compared to 125bhp in earlier models. A test on the engine in 2014 revealed very healthy compression in all 6 cylinders and this test report is available for viewing in the history file. The bodywork features original body stampings on the bonnet and boot and overall the chassis and body retain excellent patina. Supplied with an MSA Historical Technical Passport valid for racing, hill climbs and rallies, this charming Ace is eligible and would be welcomed at some extremely prestigious racing events around the world. Alternatively, the car is equally happy being exercised on country roads. The AC Ace Bristol is a car that rightfully deserves its place in the history books as grandfather to the legendary AC Cobra, and this exciting example offers a glorious opportunity to turn history into racing, rallying or every-day reality.

1939 FIAT TOPOLINO

Not long ago different countries made ‘different’ cars. This simple automotive fact is best demonstrated in the inexpensive vehicles built to put wheels under the masses. In the United States, there was the Model A. Big, uncomplicated and cheap. More like road-going tractors than proper cars. They somehow mirrored the American spirit with their Puritan appearance and ‘blacksmith’ approach to engineering problems. Great Britain had its Austin 7. Small, with quick steering to make it nimble on twisting English lanes. They were scaled down versions of contemporary big cars—it wouldn’t do to be seen driving something just up from a motorbike and sidecar, which speaks volumes about the very nature of the English character. Pre-war Germany had a number of People’s Cars, long before the KdF-Wagen (Beetle). Though these top sellers were never as small as the 500 as they actually did have room for a family and luggage. In 1936 you had the DKW ‘F’ Series cars, the Opel Kadett, Ford Eifel and Adler Trumpf Junior, just to name a few. However, they were all Germanic in style and execution and reflected the personality of German citizens at the time. And then there was Italy in 1933! A country in which more people knew the names of the entire Alfa-Romeo team than senior members of the government. What was needed was a car that was all things to all men. A baby sports car for a budding Grand Prix driver. Something to replace a rich farmer’s donkey for that rare trip into town. An object to be hungered after by every factory worker. A possession for which young couples would work six days a week in a distinctly un Latin-like frenzy. It was an impossible set of specifications around which to build a car. But engineer Dante Giacosa almost filled them.

Registration: TBA Chassis Number: 046973 Engine Number: 046873 No Reserve

Giacosa’s approach to the problem was radical and conservative at the same time. Economy demanded a tiny car as both petrol and steel were expensive in pre-war Italy. The young Italian engineer marked out a rectangle 6 1/2 feet long by 3 1/2 feet wide as the minimum amount of space required for two (Italian) people, their luggage, and the necessary machinery to take it all down the road at over 50 mph. If the new little car was to be at all successful it had to have a ride at least equal to contemporary larger cars. This called for two small bucket seats mounted in the very centre of the car. With a wheelbase inches shorter than the average modern bath, the centre was the only place, if driver and passenger were to be protected from the combination of Italian roads and Italian verve behind the wheel. All of this was pretty radical for 1933. Launched in 1937, the resulting Fiat 500 had a fantastic run remaining in production until being replaced by the familiar rear-engined 500 in 1955. The little car, with its 569cc four-cylinder engine and four-speed gearbox, soon earned the nickname Topolino, literally “Little Mouse”, for its ear-like headlamps on the front wings. Offered here is a 1939 Fiat 500 Topolino, No Reserve, ‘Barn find’ in the truest sense of the words. Our vendor has stored this car since 2004 but never had the chance to get round to commencing its restoration. There is a V5 with this car and the registration number is ‘TAS 143’. This little Fiat is a little further ‘down the road’ than the other prerestoration cars offered from the same collection, however, we understand parts are available and the diminutive nature of the vehicle makes it an approachable project on one of Italy’s most beloved cars.

The car offered here is a 1965 Jaguar E-type Series 1 4.2-litre fixed head coupé. This right-hand drive, UK-car is a fully matching numbers example (supported by inspection, corresponding paperwork and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate). The car also comes with its original buff logbook and information sent by the DVLA, to support its history. Also, in its history file are numerous invoices for work carried out and MoT certificates going back to 1973. It was manufactured on the 15th March 1965 and distributed by Henlys Ltd. of London on the 25th March 1965. The car was first registered on the 7th April 1965 with the private plate ‘773 KTA’, acquired from Devonshire County Council. It proudly still wears that registration today, having never had any other assigned to it. The car was originally painted Opalescent Silver Blue with Navy French Blue interior; again, a combination it still sports today. 773 KTA has always resided in the UK and has benefitted from having diligent previous owners, all of which have maintained and improved the car significantly over the years. It’s believed that the car was in regular use until around 1989 when unknown circumstances meant that it was dry stored for approximately 20 years. Following this period, it was sold to a prominent car collector who commissioned a full nut & bolt restoration by marque specialists, Lanes Cars of Collingwood. This extensive work was completed in 2011 and was fully documented with a photographic record. It shows every stage of the works undertaken, including the complete refurbishment and rebuild of the bodyshell which was taken back to bare metal. It addition, the engine was fully rebuilt including new pistons, con-rods, chains and valve guides, with the head suitably upgraded to run on unleaded fuel. The rear crank seal was upgraded, whilst the rear differential was fully

rebuilt and the rear axle carrier was completely refurbished. Additional upgrades also included the fitting of an ‘E Fabrication’ 5-speed gearbox (whilst importantly retaining the original 4-speed gearbox with the car for preservation of matching numbers status), adjustable shock absorbers, a larger cored radiator, an oil cooler, an electric fan, ‘Cooper Craft’ 4-pot callipers, a six branch stainless steel manifold and exhaust, competition chrome wire wheels, electronic ignition, seat-belts and airconditioning. Also fitted is a lifetime tracker device, merely requiring a change of name and a discretely installed modern audio/sat-nav unit. Following its completion, the collector used the newly restored car only sparingly, covering just a few hundred miles, before a move abroad meant it was sold to our vendor in 2013. Having always wanted a classic Jaguar, he appreciated what this particular car had to offer, however, he too has only used the car when time and health would allow, only covering an additional 350 dry miles approximately. Thus, since its full restoration, the car has covered just 647 miles whilst also being garaged to exacting standards. Regardless of not having driven the car that often, our vendor has greatly enjoyed his ownership and being part of its story, whilst deriving much satisfaction from fastidiously maintaining it. Not surprisingly, the car passed a MoT in May 2016 with ease. 773 KTA is a very special car. It offers a new owner the very ‘best of both worlds’ - a Series 1 E-type with matching-numbers, a clear lineage of ownership and history - but also with a level of restoration and improvement that is hugely reassuring and confidence-inspiring. This car is ready to be fully enjoyed and appreciated.

The story of the E-Type requires little introduction, however, what perhaps may need some explanation is the position in the market of the very early cars and their importance to collectors and marque enthusiasts alike. In common with Works of Art, Furniture, Philately, Fine Wines and all the other things people collect, the rarest and best quality items tend to attract collector’s interest and inevitably, the harder they are to find, the more expensive they can become. Should there be a number of well-heeled collectors chasing a particular painting, for example, then the result can be a serious clash of egos and wallets. This is equally true of Classic Cars and the E-Type is a perfect example. The most sought after of all the E-Types are the first 92 RHD cars produced and these are easily distinguished by their outside bonnet locks. Fifty-six of this first batch were supplied in July 1961 to Jaguar dealerships to be used as demonstrators and they were expressly forbidden to sell them until that September. With most of the first 20 cars produced being allocated for competition use, the very first road cars are considered to be the ‘Holy Grail’ of E-Types, and arguably of all collector’s cars. Chassis #062 is a rare opportunity to enjoy the thrill of ownership inherent in one of these special rare early cars. Chassis #62 was distributed to Scotland via Henleys of London as a demonstrator for potential customers in Edinburgh and the surrounding area on 14th July 1961. It was later sold in the first week of September to and first registered on the 8th September 1961 with the registration number HSS 124. Its first owner Mr I Simpson of North Berwick owned the car until 1978 when we can see from a sales invioce it was sold to a Mr D Russel of Edinbrough who then later sold the car to Mr A stwart in Fife before our vendor purchased the car from a gentleman in Edinbrough. It was destined to remain in to Scotland, where it still currently resides with our vendor the just the 5th owner. Number 62 is extra special in the history of E-types in that it has spent a very quiet life in Scotland living under the radar and having had just five, geographically close, owners from new. The result of this sheltered life is that until now, its whereabouts have been a mystery to historians and it was one of only a few of the original 92 cars that hadn’t been found. We are pleased to be offering this car on the open market for the first time, finally placing it correctly in the timeline of the E-type.

Much like many of its sister cars, #62 has over the years lost some of its distinguishing early features, which has partly helped to hide the significance of this car until now. The car most improtantly retains its orginal matching numbers engine including matching cylinder head. However while missing some of the more obvious early features the car retains not only the much revered ‘flat floor’ but in fact a whole myriad of other specific very early details including the split-link throttle linkage, review mirror amongst other little ques. From studying the comprehensive accompanying history file, the car appears to have been subject to both major and minor restoration works. In the mid to late 1970s by its orginal owner, it appears to have benefitted from a significant restoration both mechanically and bodily. At this point, we can see from accompanying invoices, that what we believe was the original ‘outside lock’ bonnet was replaced with a slightly later one by its owner at the time. Originally finished in Sherwood Green with a Suede Green Interior and French Grey roof, it was during this restoration that the car was repainted Carmen Red, the colour which it wears today and re-trimmed with its current lovely black interior. It was again sympathetically restored in the 1990s, which included another full engine rebuild. More recently under its current ownership, the car has been subject to yet more renovation to safeguard this rare car for the future. This considerate restoration took place over a period of 18 months and consisted of much bodywork including a further repaint in its current Carmen red. Presented with #62 is an excellent history file that dates back to 1975, and of course, includes a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The history file details much of the cars life in Bonnie Scotland through invoices from the 1970s to the present day. Possibly the definitive Jaguar connoisseur’s dream collectable, this lovely E-Type is in fabulous yet not over-restored condition, and represents a very special opportunity to own one of the first 92 at an attainable price, with further scope to return the car to exactly the way it was in July 1961 once again, and in doing so adding your name to the annals of Jaguar history.

Registration: OGS 396M Chassis Number: BFATPT00358 Engine Number: PU28538 Estimate (£): 28,000 - 32,000

The Escort RS2000 was the last car to be introduced to Ford’s ‘Advanced Vehicle’ range in June of 1973 and dovetailed nicely with its performance almost comparable to the more complex RS1600, but with the reliability and ease of maintenance of the Mexico. The car used the same Type 49 bodyshell as the Mexico and RS1600, however, there was a new engine in use at Ford, the 2-litre overhead cam, 100bhp, ‘Pinto’ design, which seemed, on paper, ideal for the RS. Fords then had the major problem of persuading the new bulky Pinto engine to fit into the engine bay, which was something it had never been designed to do. The only way of achieving this was by discarding the engine driven cooling fan and replacing it with a thermostatically controlled Kenlowe unit. The most appropriate gearbox was the German ‘E-box’, which was totally different to the one fitted to the RS1600, and the final drive was 3.54:1. The car was launched in England on 11th October 1973 priced at £1,586.

The restoration has been carried out to a very high standard, panel fit is superb throughout, the chrome work is bright and untarnished, and the doors open and close with a solid thud with no sign of droop or misalignment. Internally the cloth seats are in excellent order and are complemented by superb door cards and carpet set.

This particular Mk1 RS2000 was restored by ‘Tick Over’ of Dartford in Kent a couple of years ago and can be seen on their website homepage of vehicles they have restored over recent years. The vendor informs us that “OGS 396M bursts instantly into life with the first twist of the key. The four-speed manual is a delight to use, offering tight responsive shifts, and the car surges forward with the slightest tap of the throttle pedal but remains very manageable at all times. Everything feels tight and well put together, with no rattles or groans in evidence anywhere. Handling is super tight and responsive and the car drives superbly”.

In bright Banana Yellow, with its colour-coded Cibies, correct wheels, and period graphics, this 1974 2000RS is absolutely ‘on the money’ when it comes to the current classic car market. In the mid-seventies this would have been the car ‘to be seen in’, and in 2016, we think it has returned to that status.

This RS2000 boasts an exceptionally well-presented engine bay, suggesting that the engine rebuild has been carried out to the same high standard as the bodywork. Wiring is neat and tidy all round, as is the underneath of the car, so the new owner can display this car with pride at any car show. Having spent some time in a collection of ‘Sporting Fords’ and with a mileometer reading of 85,500 miles indicating that it hasn’t gone very far since its restoration, this RS remains in beautiful condition and is being sold with a fresh MoT.

The Dino 208 GT4 is the smaller brother of the Ferrari 308 GT4, revealed at the 1973 Paris Auto Salon, and was specially designed for the Italian market to avoid the heavy taxation levied on cars in those days with engines above 2 litres. The 208 remained in production from 1975 to 1980, with a total of 840 units receiving Maranello’s stamp of approval, and as this was a specific Italian market model, all were produced in a left-hand drive configuration. The exterior design of the 208 GT4 is very similar to its bigger brother with a pronounced wedgeshaped body penned by Bertone, a look that was very much in vogue with the style of the period. Within the angular body, there were some very nice design details, like the boomerang shaped air intakes on the sail panels that bordered the rear quarter glass and the tunnel effect of the inner sail panels to the flat vertical rear screen. The left side intake ducted cooling air to the oil radiator and the right side sent air to the carburettors. The overall design was very tight and well balanced and the shape has stood the test of time very well, certainly better than some of its contemporaries. The only obvious external differences between the two models were the 208 GT4’s single exhaust pipe and the plain aluminium finish for the louvres on the front lid and engine cover as opposed to satin black on the 308 GT4.

Manufactured in 1976, our little Azzurro Blu Dino had naturally suffered from the effects of 40 years of Italian sunlight, but it had done less than 40,000km and was basically sound, so its owner felt that it was worth bringing back to life. When the decision was made to fully restore the car there was no doubt in the owner’s mind about who was going to carry out the work, so off it went to Modena Classic Works on via Karl Marx in Carpi to be reborn. They are internationally renowned for the

quality of their restorations which can be summed up by their mission statement; “The restoration of a classic car is not just a matter of business and economic investment. It’s especially made of our ability to gather up, in the area around Modena, a team of mechanics, body mechanics, panel beaters, latheturners, just to mention a few, who – all together – contribute to the symphony of car-restoring”. The details of the ‘nut and bolt’, physical and mechanical restoration of Chassis No.11378 would take too long to list here but there is an extensive photographic and documented record of every inch of this car before and after, and a close inspection of the car itself will confirm the breathtaking results. Even the term ‘nut and bolt’ is not sufficiently comprehensive as every nut, bolt, washer and bracket used in the rebuild was “yellow galvanised” to accurately replicate those that would have been used in the initial build in 1976. Finished in its original Azzurro Blu, this Dino is fresh onto the market and will be sold with all the relevant import, NOVA numbers in place. If you have an interest in owning one of these rare seventies 2-litre, 2+2 Ferraris, then we would respectfully suggest that you are not going to find a better one, anywhere.

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’. 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 quadcam 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.

GTs produced, this epic Ford had made its mark on automotive history once again - and became an instant collector’s car. This immaculate, left-hand drive, 2005 Ford GT has covered 10,080 miles since it left the factory just over 10 years ago. It was built in the US in 2005 and was imported into the UK later that year by Roush (Mountune). This car has since been enjoyed by its four UK owners and Roush have looked after the car for all of them. Indeed, in 2008 they ‘upgraded’ the car with a ‘Tubi’ exhaust system, updated throttle bodies and an uprated pulley all of which resulted in around 600 BHP. Included in the history file are all the MoTs backing up the mileage indicated and it also contains service invoices from Mountune and GT101 in 2008 and every year from 2012 onwards. The vendor describes the car as totally original, with its original paint and paint protection film. 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, Ford’s supercar is a very special creation that will undoubtedly be revered for years to come. This is a great opportunity to add a low mileage and well-specified example of these achingly desirable coupés to your collection.

Rarely do cars given a facelift look as good as the models they are intended to replace, but with the Mk2, Jaguar put paid to that particular theory. (Until the XJ, Jaguar’s postwar saloons were usually denoted by Roman numerals e.g. Mark VII, Mark VIII whilst the Mark 2 used Arabic Numerals, denoted on the rear of the car as “MK 2”). William Lyons, whilst not a trained draughtsman, was a bit more handson than most men in his position when it came to the final design of his beloved Jaguars. At one point the team in the drawing office developing the later XJS, were left ‘twiddling their thumbs’ until Sir William was happy with the rear-end and it wasn’t until Stan Keyworth managed to scrounge a Ferrari Dino 246GT and dropped it up to the Lyons family home on Gibbet Hill that the matter was resolved. The car was parked outside the bay window of the breakfast room for Sir William to stare at and ‘Hey Presto’ the back of the XJS came into being (have a look at a Dino and an early XJS). And so it had been with the Mark 2, which was altogether a more modern and stylish car in period, with a brighter interior and balanced looks that most of us still admire. 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 Mk2 saloon was voted ‘Car of the Year’ when launched in 1959 and would form the mainstay of Jaguar’s saloon production until 1967. This striking Mk2 was first registered in January 1962 and has its original engine and gearbox although the latter has been uprated to ‘allsynchro’. All the numbers match and the numerous MoT certificates and sundry invoices in the history file that accompanies the car seem to substantiate the indicated 58,679 miles as accurate.

The car was stripped to a bare shell and carefully prepared for several coats of fresh paint. At this point, the engine was comprehensively rebuilt and naturally everything was done that needed to be, to ensure the car ran well for many more miles. All the suspension was rebuilt with new springs and shock absorbers and the fuel tank and fuel lines were replaced. The brakes were upgraded with new master cylinders, new servo, ‘Coopercraft’ calipers in the front and an ‘XJ’ brake caliper conversion carried out at the rear. When the mechanical restoration was complete, the car was repainted in its original beautiful colour of Opalescent Blue, and the interior was re-trimmed by Suffolk and Turley in Blue-Grey leather and a new headlining fitted. The remaining interior was trimmed and carpeted in Mid-Blue and the iconic Mk2 dashboard was freshly veneered as were the door cappings and picnic tables. The interior of this early-sixties Jaguar looks like a great place to be, and it’s all delightfully set off by a period ‘Les Leston’ steering wheel. Most of the chrome work, excluding the window frames, was re-plated and the bumpers and external brightwork, triple chrome plated. All new body rubbers were fitted and the engine finished off with a new stainless steel exhaust, new water hoses, and a new uprated heater box. Finally, the wire wheels were powder coated in an appropriate shade of blue. Supplied with all its handbooks and a current MoT, this definitive classic is ready for a new owner to drive and enjoy.

In 2012, it was fully restored by M and C Wilkinson of Doncaster who are one of the most highly respected, family run Jaguar engineers and specialists in the country today and have been responsible for the restoration and rebuilding of some very special period Jaguar road and race cars.

Introduced in 3.8-litre form in May 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a veritable sensation when it first appeared, with classic smooth lines, great looks and, at the time, an amazing top speed of 150 MPH. William Lyons had created one of the all-time most beautiful cars ever to be produced by Jaguar. The styling, together with 265 bhp and a huge weight saving of over 500lbs on its immediate predecessor (the XK 150), was a formidable combination. The first evolution was the introduction of the 4.2-litre engine, fully synchronised gearbox and greater legroom to accommodate six foot plus drivers. This model is often regarded as the ultimate driving E-type, and even now a well-sorted example is a sensational driving experience with a sense of occasion that’s hard to replicate at any price in a classic car.

This particular car is a 4.2 series II Fixed Head Coupé manual, which was built in June 1970 as a UK right-hand drive car, and finished in Primrose yellow with Black leather upholstery. It retains the original engine and gearbox as verified by the Jaguar Heritage Certificate, supplied in the history file with this Lot.

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 V-12 by 250 cubic centimeters, to 5,748cc resulted in a healthy increase in power and torque, giving the 575M a top speed of 202 mph. 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 3,299 kms since leaving Maranello in its striking Rosso Corsa finish with a

Our vendor takes enormous pride in his cars and this example is no exception to the rule. 3,000 kms 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 8 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 3,295kms. 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 its original tool kit and literature are present along with the EU registration papers. This is truly 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.

1995 FERRARI F355 BERLINETTA MANUAL

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 old-guard ‘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 down-force to offset any lift.

collection but has hardly used it, and feels that this superb 355 should really be enjoyed by a new owner. The mileage at the latest MoT on 24/3/2016 was 55,256kms compared to 54,265 the previous year and despite having covered just under 1,000 kms in a year there are invoices for almost £1,500 for care and attention. The car is accompanied by a Tan Leather Ferrari book pack and an interesting history file. 355 aficionados insist that the ‘one to have’ is the six-speed manual with the 2.7 Motronic ignition system and the slimmer, pre-airbag, steering wheel which is exactly what we have here, and when presented in this colour combination and in this condition this car is irresistible.

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. Dating from March 1995, this lovely left-hand drive 355 Berlinetta has the desirable manual gearbox and is finished in the very rare colour combination of Argento Silver with a Bordeaux interior. Supplied new to Oman and subsequently moved to Spain before arriving in the UK, while in the custody of the original owner. From the history file this little Ferrari obviously spent some time darting around the lanes of South Herefordshire as there are a number of invoices relating to its last owner in Ross on Wye who, judging by the invoice file was particularly fastidious, even going as far as fitting brand new seats from Ferrari. Our vendor acquired the vehicle in August of last year to add to his

“The car you always promised yourself” was the advertising slogan used by Ford at the launch of their new Capri in 1969, and that may well have been true for lots of people, but if you were keen on ‘sporting motoring’, then the Capri 1300L was unlikely to have been on the letter you wrote to Santa Claus. However as the model range expanded and larger and larger engines became available, the Capri began to be recognised as a decent performance car. Ford were, and still are, experts in using their Motor Sport involvement to keep their showroom doors creaking, particularly so in the 1970s, and soon an RS 2600 Capri was commissioned and built to compete in the European Touring Car Championship, initially with considerable success. However, BMW had bigger ideas and introduced the more powerful 3.0CSL, rapidly stealing a march on Ford at the circuits. In response, Ford Advanced Vehicle Operations got the go ahead in September 1973, to build a batch of Capri RS 3100s to homologate the car for the E.T.C.C.and the motorsport public were treated to some very special racing in the ‘74/75 season as both manufacturers showed scant regard for cost, both on and off the track. The Essex 3.0 V6 was over bored to 3091 cc, developed by Cosworth, and when fuelled through a Weber 38DGAS, produced 148bhp and 187lb ft of torque. The gearbox was a standard Granada unit with an Atlas diff and this combination when fitted to the road car resulted in 0 to 60 in 7.3 secs and a top speed of 125mph. The suspension was modified with stiffer front springs and competition rear springs and Bilstein Gas Dampers were fitted all round. Slightly flared arches, twin tailpipes, RS four-spoke alloys, a shallow front splitter and an enormous rear wing completed the look. The interior was pure 3000GXL with a flat 2-spoke steering wheel. The RS3100 was offered in a number

of bright colours and they were all decaled in Gold around the power bulge, the rear panel and a triple line down the side. We now know that 248 were built, however in the middle of a world recession sales were slow and Ford wanted the space for the Capri II, so production was ended and the last 50 of the unsold cars were sent to Australia. The fabulous Sebring Red Capri here is a genuine UK RS3100 with matching numbers - bodyshell, chassis, SPA Special AVO plate, and engine, and carries its original registration number TEC 147M. It has remained completely standard without any modifications and still sits on RS3100 front Bilsteins, legs, discs, calipers and rear single leaf springs. Restored by our vendor in 2001 using the correct Ford panels (bonnet, boot lid, both doors and the front panel), he was equally fastidious about getting the paint colour exactly correct before the car was professionally resprayed. The quality of the restoration and the condition of the car today can clearly be seen in the accompanying photographs.This particular car is well known to Len Pierce of the RS Owners Club and he will be happy to confirm this is the genuine article. There are numerous pictures of the car available and interested parties are invited to contact Guy Lees-Milne at Silverstone Auctions. We understand that there are only about one hundred RS3100s left, and if you are keen to own one, then we feel you might struggle to find a better one than this.

Introduced in 1992, the Porsche 964RS was offered in three versions. The ‘standard’ RS was the ultimate development of the superb 964, embracing all the values inherent in earlier ‘RS’ models, and it was joined by the MOO2 (Touring) and the MOO3 N/GT (also known as the Clubsport). The N/GT was the lightest of the trio and was essentially a race ready road car with a welded in Matter roll cage and stripped-out interior in body colour. Standard equipment included narrower Recaro type seats with full harnesses, a fire extinguisher and an electrical cut-out. It still remains one of the most accomplished club racers ever produced by the factory. A Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms that this stunning 964 RS was sold new on 11th February 1992 by Porsche Deutschland, Germany. Supplied new in Guards Red with the desirable Clubsport interior, the original German Fahrzeugbrief confirms the first three owners up until 1997. The current owner purchased the vehicle in 2005 and has put significant time and expense into creating the ultimate Porsche road/track car.

PARR have maintained the car for many years and have conducted many of the upgrades themselves. Prospective bidders are welcome to contact PARR for a full and fair evaluation of its current condition. Many Porsche experts rate the 964 RS as the greatest 911 chassis ever, and with the ongoing intelligent development carried out by its current owner, we feel that this example has gradually evolved into one of the ultimate 911s money can buy today.

Reading just 70,287 kilometres from new, the car features the following very high specification, for which there are a large number of bills and receipts that document most of the works. The engine has been fully stripped and bored out to 3.8 litres using the original engine block. This included Billet cylinder heads, larger injectors, throttle bodies, GT3 crank, Carrillo rods, Sprint cams, all married up to a Motec engine management system. The exhaust system is a dual outlet stainless steel unit, which sounds incredible, and the car handles beautifully with JRZ 3-way suspension. Dynamically, the current owner has managed to shed significant weight with the addition of carbon front wings, carbon doors, carbon bonnet, carbon rear bumper, carbon engine lid, carbon front splitter, GT3 Clubsport leather seats and plexiglass rear quarters and rear window. The overall result is a normally aspirated, high-revving 964 RS that develops 360 bhp, weighs 1050 kg and is equally at home on

In 1992 BMW introduced this new M3 at the Paris Motor Show based on the E36 platform. The second incarnation of the M3 was a different animal to the 1980’s E30 original, with a straight-six in place of the fizzy four, modern styling and a more refined demeanour. At this time, the Motorsport Division’s new take on the iconic M3 was to utilise the standard M50TU engine (used in other E36s and earlier E34s). However, there were numerous upgrades over the standard M50 including individual throttle plates for each cylinder, continuously variable ‘Vanos’ valve timing, lightweight pistons, graphite-coated connecting rods, larger inlet valves and re-designed equal length exhaust manifolds. The resultant 24 valve, S50B30 engine had a capacity of 2990cc and produced 282bhp, an output approaching 100bhp/litre, pretty impressive. The torque curve is not dissimilar to Ayers Rock, in that it is high and flat - and the dual mass flywheel contributes to the engine’s ability to rev to nearly 7,300rpm. In 1996, the M3 was developed further with an increase in capacity to 3,152cc becoming known as the (M3) Evolution. The BMW E36 M3 is remembered for its road holding and all-round ability and was awarded “Best-Handling Car” by Car and Driver magazine in 1997.

The car presented here is a 1994 E36 M3 in the distinctive BMW colour of Avus Blue. This right-hand drive, UK car is in great original condition, having covered just 39,200 miles with just two former keepers. The car drives and feels just as you’d expect from such a wellpreserved example. The engine bay is in quite exceptional order, as is the driver-focused interior which displays minimal wear with even the wear-prone sports seats in great condition. Trying to find an earlier E36 M3 in this sort of condition is getting much harder. The inherent build-quality from this era is high, with a real feeling of being built-for-purpose and BMW had a hard act to follow after the E30 M3, so invested heavily in the development and execution of these early M3 E36 cars. This car comes with its BMW book-pack, a full set of keys, its complete tool kit and first aid pack. The servicing schedule is consistent with the mileage and shows five visits to a main dealer and a recent independent. The car is believed to have been in storage for approximately 12 years, explaining the low mileage, and was recently subjected to a full recommissioning, with an MoT until April 2017. With prices having risen significantly for well-preserved and original E30 M3s, this is an ideal opportunity now to acquire the following M3 incarnation before they do the same. This car is the right example to buy and keep.

The 599 replaced the 575 in the summer of 2006 and brought the front-engined V12 Ferrari slap bang into the modern age. Whereas the 550 and 575 always felt like modern classics, the 599 was every inch a new-age Ferrari: all-aluminium chassis, lashings of glossy carbon fibre, F1 SuperFast gearbox, F1-Trac stability and traction control, magnetic semi-active dampers and carbon-ceramic brakes, all wrapped in aggressive, aero-optimised bodywork with minimal overhangs and maximum presence.

Supplied with its original leather wallet, all manuals, original service book, spare key, navigation CD, key code card, radio key card, highfi warranty card and current MoT, we can think of no finer touring companion for this Summer. 599s have been steadily climbing in value in recent years, as collectors realise their incredible ability and allround usability.

Top billing, though, went to the engine - a lightly modified version of the Enzo’s 6-litre V12 with a mighty 611bhp at 7600rpm, endowing Ferrari’s new series-production flagship with truly sensational performance: 0-60 in 3.5sec, 0-100 in 7.4 and 205mph. This left-hand drive Ferrari 599 GTB was sold new on 12th March 2009 by a Ferrari main agent in Dubai. Finished in the stunning colour combination of Bianco Avus with Rosso hide interior, this example has covered just over 22,000 kilometres or 13,700 miles. Factory specifications include Daytona seats, carbon dash, centre section and driving zone, uprated Bose sound system, F1 paddle shift with carbon steering wheel and LED shift lights. A good service history accompanies this Ferrari and there are supplying dealer stamps from 2010, 2011, 2012. Most recently, this 599 has been maintained by respected marque specialists DK Engineering, who have just carried out a large service.

1983 FERRARI 400i AUTO

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 4.8 litres, V12 which was now available with the option of a Borg Warner 3-speed automatic gearbox. In 1979, the Webers were replaced with Bosch ‘K’ Fuel Injection and power dropped slightly to 305 bhp, however, some three years later, re-profiled camshafts restored around 5 bhp, bringing the output up to 310bhp. 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’ s were produced from 1979 to 1985. Originally supplied to Lancaster of Colchester for the sum of £32,474, the car was sold and registered to its first owner, a Mr. McTighe of Ingatestone on 1st February 1983. The Ferrari then changed hands in early January, 1985 and became the property of Conrad Ritblat & Co. for the exclusive use of John Ritblat, who later went on to receive a Knighthood and establish one of the largest property empires in the UK. The car remained on the company’s books until its closure in 1993 and was then adopted by Anthony Reeback, a fellow director of Conrad Ritblat and registered in his name on the 2nd of February 1989.

Reeback kept his distinguished Ferrari right the way through until 1997 when it was purchased by the talented singer-songwriter Andrew Ridgeley of ‘Wham’ fame. Andrew is well known for his love of cars and had his newly acquired 400i stripped, repainted and re-trimmed in Cream leather with Green piping and new Green carpets. Four years ago the car became part of a private collection where it has remained since. The odometer now indicates just over 58,000 miles and this is supported by its service history, lots of documentation, and old MoTs. The car has recently been serviced and the brakes overhauled and the owner tells us that it’s mechanically excellent and even the air conditioning works perfectly. Lightly used recently, mainly for outings to various Ferrari events up and down the country where the car is well known within the owners club, and graced the FOC stand at the 2014 Salon Privé Concours d’ Elegance. A rare opportunity to own a low mileage, low ownership Ferrari 400i.

1963 PORSCHE 550A SPYDER EVOCATION (ALUMINIUM)

Porsche’s first real attempt at building a race car was the 550 Spyder powered by their Carrera 1500cc quad-cam flat four engine. Although output was a modest 115bhp, the car was light and handled superbly and it soon gained a reputation as a ‘Giant Killer’. During September 1955 one of the first ninety 550 Spyders (Vin 550 - 0055) would be immortalised in history when James Dean, actor and budding racing driver collided fatally with Donald Turnupseed on his way to the Salinas Road Race. The trans-axle was removed from the wreck at the time and is still owned privately in the USA, and the bodywork of ‘’Little Bastard’’ toured the States as a macabre reminder to speeding motorists. Sadly between appearances, it went missing and has not been heard of since, however, I imagine it may well reappear one day.

vivid with true handling to match. Road manners and ride quality have been improved by swapping the original swing axle arrangement to a four-link de Dion and Panhard rod setup and fitting rack and pinion steering. With modern engineering thinking and design solutions, it would not be unfair to suggest that this 550A will outperform the original at every level. The transmission is a Porsche type 901, 5-speed gearbox with a Quaife torque biased differential and the clutch and flywheel are from a period sixty’s 911S racer. The engine is dry sumped and includes some additional Jake Raby cooling modifications.Many of the fittings are either Porsche 356 or 550, adding to the period feel of this stunning and beautifully engineered homage to the iconic Porsche 550 Spyder.

In 1956, the 550A Spyder made its appearance and, although externally similar, it was an altogether different car with a complex space-frame replacing the earlier ‘ladder’ chassis. Although only 37 were built in 56/7 the 550A’s abilities were remarkable and it proved very competitive in motorsport, bringing Porsche their first ever overall ‘Sports Car’ win in the 1956 Targo Florio.

Most of this car’s life has been spent in Slovenia, taken there some eight years ago by its English owner, a retired sports journalist. Now in his 80s, he brought the car back to the UK recently, where it has remained registered as AOW 265A. Its chassis identity 213089 is recorded on the V5C as 1963 Porsche Sports Cabriolet, its Porsche 356 donor. The Spyder has recently undergone a full professional repaint in 2015, has been serviced and comes with a current MoT.

Offered here is a stunning recreation of the 1956 Porsche 550A Spyder envisioned and brought to life by Kent based specialist race car constructor Lewis Barrow. Barrow Automotive Creations are renowned fabrication experts in aluminium and crafted an exact copy of the body and a space frame chassis. Paying testament to his work is the skill used to form the evocative curves of arguably one of the most iconic sports car of the fifties. The engine was built by air-cooled specialist Jake Raby who enlarged the 2.0litre Porsche IV 914 unit to 2400cc and with twin plug heads, ‘Jenvey’ throttle bodies and electronic ignition, it produces 257 bhp. With a weight of just 570kgs the performance is

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 old-guard ‘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 down-force 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.

He immediately sent the car to his preferred Ferrari specialist, QV London, who have in the past looked after other Prancing Horses in his possession.

The following year and less than 1,000 miles later, another service and MoT was carried out at QV London and in October 2015 the car was sent there again for its annual check-up. At the time of consignment, the car was due to head to QV London for a full health check before our vendor has one last hurrah in his pride and joy by driving her to the Le Mans Classic!

Finished in Nero Black with a black leather interior, this car has a much desired manual gearbox. A stamp in the service book by Penske Wynn Ferrari dated 19th October 2007 when the car had covered 28,422 miles, is supported by a service schedule report which gives a break-down of what would have been done to the car when it had its full service.

1972 BRISTOL 411 SERIES 3

The Bristol 411 was built by Bristol Cars from 1969 to 1976 and is now considered by marque aficionados to be the best of the V8-powered 400 Series cars, retaining the elegant good looks of the earlier cars and preceding the opinion-dividing angularity of the later 6-series. The 411 was the fifth series of Chrysler-V8 engined Bristols, however, the old A-type engine was now replaced by the much larger big-block B-series engine of 6,277cc - as compared to the 5,211cc in the Bristol 410. Suitably allied to Torqueflite automatic transmission, this much larger engine gave the 411 an estimated 30% more power than had been available in the 410, resulting in a 0-60mph of seven seconds and a top speed of 143mph. To cope with this extra power, all-round disc brakes and a limited slip differential were fitted, and independent coiland-wishbone front and torsion bar rear suspension kept everything civilised. During its seven years in production, the 411 was constantly being developed and updated. The 1971 Series 2 added self-levelling suspension and a metric odometer whilst the Series 3 from a year later had a lower compression ratio and completely revised styling. This edition was the first Bristol to possess the four-headlamp layout that had been tried on the 401 and 402 but on the 411-Series 3 was a spectacular success.

who subsequently passed it on to a relative and it was during this period that we believe the car was completely stripped and restored, with a colour change from Gold to Light Blue Metallic, and superbly re-trimmed. Following this work, circumstances resulted in this freshly restored Bristol being laid-up and stored for approximately nine years. In 2014, this splendid car was bought by our enthusiastic vendor (only the 4th owner), who has owned and maintained many classic cars over the years. He has improved this car in numerous areas, whilst participating in many events as an active member of the Bristol Owners Club. Recent work carried out includes improvements to the front suspension, maintenance of the gearbox, wheel bearings and back-axle, replacement brake servos, a restored headlining, renewed windscreen rubbers, attention to the bumpers, and the fitting of seatbelts. The engine benefits from a modern Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor. The car currently sits on a set of sparkling chrome wire wheels with ‘whitewall’ tyres, however, the original wheels and hubcaps are with the car but will require some minor refurbishment.

These cars were considered far more exclusive than their Rolls-Royce or Aston Martin peers at the time, with the total production of all series of 411 thought to have been just 287 cars. A journalist of the day christened the 411 “ The fastest true four-seat touring car in the world”.

This 411 drives and performs gracefully with all the power you would expect from a V8 Bristol and has recently passed an MoT test with no advisories, whilst also benefitting from new tyres and a recent engine tune. In 2015, it scored 1098 points out of a possible 1200 at the Bristol Owners Club Concours event. This “Gentleman’s’ Express” has been used sparingly for the last twelve years, with our vendor now requiring additional garage space, it deserves to be used and enjoyed by its new owner.

The car offered here is a 1972, 411 Series 3 that has been enjoyed by just three former keepers. In 1976 it was purchased by its second keeper

Bristol ownership is a rather exclusive club, and your membership card is right here in the form of this fabulous 411.

1986 FORD SIERRA RS COSWORTH

The Ford Sierra RS was the first Ford to carry the Cosworth name when production started in Belgium in June 86, however, the concept dated back to Brands Hatch in 1982. Walter Hayes and Stuart Turner had watched Rover dominate the touring car race supporting the British Grand Prix and with Ford Cosworth engines powering fourteen of the F1 cars on the grid they both agreed it would be nice to see a Ford saloon winning again, especially a Sierra. It was not until the summer of 1983, when Turner was conducting a tour for a group of Ford USA personnel around Cosworth Engineering in Northampton, highlighting the Grand Prix DFY engine, that the ‘moment’ emerged. He noticed a 16-valve Sierra engine that Cosworth had been developing privately and, in conversation, the decision was made to mate this with a turbo and this power unit eventually led to Ford’s total dominance in European Touring Cars with the Sierra Cosworth.

engine its maiden win at that Dutch Grand Prix, and the DFV would dominate Formula One for over fifteen years. Ford’s investment in Cosworth was a masterstroke and started one of the most successful brand partnerships in motorsport. Looking purposeful in Black, D999 HVR presents very well indeed and has only covered 34,000 miles from new, thanks to it being dry stored for 17 years. The car has undergone a comprehensive re-commissioning including a new cam belt with tensioners and a full service with all the fluids changed. It still retains all of its original features and interestingly does not have an after-market exhaust, keeping a ‘pattern part’ mild steel version. The car has been carefully detailed showing this original Fast Ford at its best. In gleaming Black with low mileage and a fresh MoT, this must surely be a great addition to any car collection.

Cosworth was founded by Mike Costin and Keith Duckworth and is most famous for the design and introduction of the Cosworth DFV Formula One engine. In June 1967, Graham Hill put a Lotus-Cosworth on pole at Zandvoort with Jim Clark going on to give the Cosworth

Synonymous with the Swinging Sixties, and epitomising the fashion and designs of the time, the E-Type’s enduring style continues to make it one of the world’s most desirable cars. ‘ADE 175J’ was built in 1971 and dispatched to New York in August of that year. At some point, it moved to Texas, and it was from there that this E-type was exported back to England.

1958 JAGUAR XK150 3.4 FIXED HEAD COUPÉ

The XK120 was launched in 1948 and it was an international sensation finally putting Jaguar on the world stage and their competition successes would see the beginning of a hugely positive period for the company. The XK150 was the final incarnation of the XK series and it appeared in May 1957, as either a fixed or drophead coupé. A more refined and capable machine than its predecessors, the 150 was noticeably different from earlier versions of the XK theme with a higher scuttle and door line, whilst the radiator grille reverted to the thinner slats of the XK120, but was altogether wider. There were also larger wraparound bumpers fitted, a curved windscreen replaced the divided one on the XK120 and 140, and much needed servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes were fitted all-round. However, the XK150 retained much of the mechanical layout of the XK140 sharing the same 3.4-litre DOHC Jaguar straight-six, which developed 180bhp at 5750rpm. The car offered for sale here is a 1958 XK150 3.4-litre, right-hand drive fixed head coupé, specified with a manual gearbox. It was manufactured for the UK Home Market on the 2nd April 1958, being dispatched on the 28th April, via Henlys of London. First registered on the 17th July 1958, this very well preserved example still wears its original number plate, whilst also retaining its original chassis and drive-train (supported by inspection, corresponding paperwork and a JDHT Certificate). Originally painted Pearl Grey with red trim, it was repainted in Indigo Blue in 1980. The last time this car was sold, it did so with another prominent auction house, Coys of Kensington on the 4th May 1986, when our vendor purchased it. His long and diligent ownership saw the car go with him out to Spain, where it has been used sparingly for the last 30 years, occasionally being driven out on local rallies. The owner’s dedication

to the car extended to him utilising Jaguar specialists back in the UK to source parts and maintain its engine. In 2009/10 he commissioned long-established Jaguar parts company Norman Motors Ltd. of London to complete a full engine rebuild. They, in turn, utilised the skills of Greencats Ltd. of Colchester, who spent the best part of a year meticulously carrying out the work, at a cost of approximately £10,000. The car has covered just 2,600 miles since. The history file contains invoices and photographs of this work, plus many other bills for maintenance and parts over the years. Also present is a Jaguar/ Daimler Heritage Certificate helping to confirm its matching-numbers status, an original Jaguar XK Service Manual, plus the bill of sale from 1986 and some old MoT certificates / V5c documents. This very fine classic Jaguar car still retains a look and feel of genuine originality and authenticity. It is a credit to our vendor that money has been spent on mechanical componentry, whilst ensuring the preservation of many original features. The car drives and performs particularly well, having been driven back to the UK recently, some 1,800 miles, without issue or problem. Recently issued with a NOVA (Notification of Vehicle Arrival) number and is awaiting re-registration in the UK with a corresponding V5c, enabling it to be reunited with its original registration number, FFB 486. This distinguished and elegant car is in need of very little, but would benefit from some minor refreshing and auxiliary parts. It comes to auction following a long and conscientious ownership period, where it was much-loved. For cars of this era to hold onto such patina, whilst still being so eminently driveable mechanically, is testimony to the high regard in which they are held by dedicated owners and worth celebration.

The engine that would ultimately power the legendary Lotus Cortina began its life in 1961 when Colin Chapman commissioned a twin-cam version of the Ford Kent unit and bored it out to give 1,558cc. Whilst the it was still being developed, Ford asked Chapman to fit the engine to 1,000 Ford saloons for Group 2 homologation. Chapman accepted the challenge and the Ford Lotus Cortina was born. Ford supplied the bodyshells, whilst Lotus handled the mechanical and cosmetic changes. The model was to dominate saloon car racing for the Ford factory as it evolved throughout the 1960s and was driven by many stars of the day, including the legendary Jim Clark. In total, approximately 3,000 Lotus Cortinas were manufactured. This stunning 1965 Lotus Cortina was delivered new on 1st June 1965 to the UK and is a highly desirable A-Frame example, complete with deeper factory hump in the floor to accommodate the differential. A letter from the Lotus Cortina Register confirms that ELW 522C was inspected in 2009 and found to be a genuine Lotus Cortina with the correct chassis and registration number. This car is very well-known to the Lotus Cortina club as it used to be the pride and joy of the exchairman of the Mk I Ford Cortina Club, Mike Pratt.

Original letters and documents confirm the details of just 5 previous owners. In addition, a copy of ‘Thoroughbred & Classic Cars’ from October 1988 documents the 4-year marathon rebuild carried out by Mr. Pratt during the mid-1980s.

1996 FORD ESCORT RS COSWORTH LUX

The Ford Escort RS Cosworth proved that it was possible to follow its legendary 1980’s 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 season 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. At its retail launch in 1994, two models were available, the ‘Clubspec’ standard car at £21,380 and the more optioned ‘Lux’ version. Power was up slightly from the Sierra RS Cosworth, at 227bhp, and performance consequently improved. The first 2,500 cars up to May

1994 suffered from turbo lag, but the next 4,500 were improved thanks to their smaller Garrett T25 Turbo. In 1995, the RS Cosworth was treated to a mild facelift when it received a new honeycomb grille, restyled bumpers, a more attractive fascia and revised alloy wheels. The car continued until early 1996 when emissions regulations effectively ended its viability. Like pretty much every RS Ford, it was a classic from the moment it was built. N616 HLB is presented in Imperial Blue and is in outstanding condition. This is as near to the original specification as you will find, retaining all of its original features including, orange indicators, middle and lower splitter, the correct radio/cd player, original tyre change kit and all of its original Ford badging. This Cosworth has benefitted from not having any modifications whatsoever, and so will appeal to the purists out there. The car is accompanied by its original Ford Manuals, a full history from new, and has been enjoyed by three previous owners during its 34,700 miles. The paintwork has just been detailed showing the striking Imperial Blue at its best, and we thoroughly recommend viewing this well-presented, classic ‘Fast Ford’.

Registration: TBA Chassis Number: ZFFWA20T0G0066595 Engine Number: TBA Estimate (£): 45,000 - 55,000

The Ferrari 328 first appeared in 1985 as the successor to the 308 and featured a normally aspirated 3.2 V8 engine and very handsome styling. It became instantly popular and Ferrari went on to produce 7,400 variants worldwide during the production run which finished late in 1989. Now regarded as a true design classic, this ultimate 270 bhp ‘sports car of the day’ reached 0 - 60 in 5.5 seconds and went to a top speed of 166mph. The Ferrari 328GTS is an iconic and increasingly desirable product from the stable of the prancing horse. This charming left-hand drive example has spent its life to date in the dry and cossetted environment of a collector in Dubai. Recently arrived and dry stored in the UK, the car shows 50,000 kilometers or 31,000 miles and is in fine overall condition, as you would expect from a cherished car living in a dry state environment. This non-ABS 328 GTS offers the opportunity to invest in an appreciating modern classic car. The car has been the beneficiary of a recent £7,000 engine and general service, including a cam belt change. Supplied with all the correct NOVA paperwork the car can be registered in the UK or would be equally at home in Europe or the USA.

ROLLS-ROYCE CORNICHE CONVERTIBLE

The Corniche was a development of Rolls-Royce’s Silver Shadow and was manufactured between 1971 and 1996. It was assembled and finished in London at Mulliner Park Ward as a continuation of the 1965 Silver Shadow coupé and 1967 Drophead, with the Corniche name applied in March 1971. The car used a silky smooth 6.7 litre Rolls-Royce V8 engine, mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission and featured independent suspension with coil springs and hydraulic self-levelling. During its lifetime, a total of only 1,306 would glide smoothly out the doors of Mulliner PW.

Registration: EU REG Chassis Number: DRH 6571 Engine Number: TBA Estimate (£): 35,000 - 45,000

With the odometer indicating 58,000 miles this lovely car looks superb and is finished in the head turning colour combination of Tudor Red with Cream Leather and Coffee carpets. Anyone who saw one of these with the top down when they were first introduced, would have found it difficult to conceive that a collection of Steel, Glass, Plastic, Leather and Rubber could have been formed into something so ultimately desirable.

This Corniche was carefully assembled in the mid-seventies and spent some time in the ownership of Joe Kelly in Co.Wicklow before ending up in Denmark. It is brought to auction by CC-Cars of Bodalen in Denmark. A quick look at their website will demonstrate the standard of Classic Cars in which they deal, and their excellent standard of presentation.

Introduced in 1998 and assembled in BMW’s US plant in Greer, South Carolina, the Z3M was designed to be a performance version of the Z3, featuring a revised body, that included new front and rear bumpers, wider rear wings and a different boot lid. Along with the styling cues, the 3.2-litre engine was lifted from the E36 BMW M3 (S50) and was capable of producing a reported 317 brake horsepower. In 2001, the Z3M Roadster was fitted with the latest evolution of the M-Sport engine. This unit was taken from the legendary and more powerful E46 M3 (S54). Only 73 right-hand drive cars were produced with the S54 engine, making them incredibly rare & collectable today.

Offered here is an original UK, right hand drive BMW Z3M Roadster. One of the first S54 Engine cars built it was delivered new in 2000 to BMW GB Limited where it remained in BMW’s ownership as a show car/demonstrator until being sold in 2002.

Having been in the custodianship of our vendor for the past 12 years the car has been much cared for and used only on very rare occasions in the sunshine. The majority of the time however the car has remained under its fitted car cover inside a heated garage and in addition to its cover the car is accompanied by a good history file with its service records, original book pack and driver’s manual.

This is one of the 73 right-hand drive S54s, one of seven finished in Phoenix Yellow, and looks striking with its Kiwi/Black trimmed leather interior. The car features a host of optional extras including a Harman Kardon audio system, air conditioning, heated seats and many more.

For fans of BMW’s legendary M-Sport Division, this rare S54-engined Z3M is not to be missed, and represents an opportunity to enjoy a modern high-performance roadster that’s also a highly collectable classic.

What is particularly special about this car, however, is that it has covered a mere 9,700 miles from new and this is supported by seven

1990 ASTON MARTIN VIRAGE

Unveiled at the Birmingham Motor Show in 1988, the Aston Martin Virage was the first all-new Aston for nearly 20 years and, notably, it was also the first car to be produced under Ford’s ownership. Designed by John Heffernan and Ken Greeley, it was praised for its fresh contemporary styling. The new V8 engine was a development of the tried and tested 5.3-litre power unit but with new four-valve cylinder heads for better breathing and to overcome the inevitable power losses associated with the arrival of catalytic converters. The new car was hand-built with an aluminium bodyshell and embraced many of the legendary Aston Martin styling cues, including its distinctive grille and front wing vents. In spite of its aluminium body, the Virage was a large and heavy car, so the 32-valve, 5.3-litre V8 was pressed into service to persuade the big Aston up to 60mph in around 6.5 seconds. Just 1,050 Virage related models were produced in total, quite a low production number when compared to some of its predecessors.

Registration: TBA Chassis Number: SCFCAM1S2LBK5C148 Engine Number: TBA Estimate (£): 35,000 - 42,000

European VAT has been paid on the Aston and the car is ready to go, however, there are some minor areas where the paintwork needs a little attention and it could do with a little tlc and some detailing. Idiosyncratic and a bit ‘macho’, these cars are now widely accepted as the last of the classic Aston Martins before the launch of the Ford financed and Jaguar influenced DB7 in the late 1990s, and having reached the bottom of their depreciation curve recently, we have to agree with the delightful ‘Yazz’ - “The only way is up”.

Originally registered in the UK on 11/09/90, this Aston had two owners here before being shipped to Denmark. This Virage is right-hand drive, has only covered 34,000 miles from new and, we understand, drives superbly. Most Virage’ are automatic, but this is one of the very rare 5-speed manual cars with a ‘dog-leg’ gearbox. The car is finished in a lovely understated Valiant Blue, however, the interior is anything but, in fabulous Rich Red Connolly Leather with polished wood veneers.

The Sprinzel Sebring Sprite Coupé was introduced to the world at the London Racing Car Show in January 1961, and whilst only six examples were originally produced, two of these were raced at Sebring in 1961 in the hands of Pat (S221) and Stirling Moss (PMO 200) thus enhancing the marque’s pedigree. Lots of attempts were made, in period, to give the Austin Healey Sprite a competition advantage, some less than successful and some like Lenham and WSM did very well, but none ended up as revered as the John Sprinzel cars. Archers Garage located in Oldbury, nr. Birmingham has been long associated with British Sports Cars and re-created the pretty, streamlined hardtop and bonnet in the early nineties from an original Sprinzel car. Their work includes routine servicing of customers’ cars, production and assembly of Sebring Sprite body sections and, occasionally, complete cars. Brian Archer had wanted to re-produce John Sprinzel’s very pretty streamlined Sebring Sprite for some years and was finally able to do so in the early 1990s. The hardtop from the original WJB 707 and a good Sebring bonnet were the basis for the creation of the moulds, and from these many fibreglass replica parts have been produced and marketed for 20 years. Incidentally, Archers are the only company to have gained John Sprinzel’s approval.

1991 PORSCHE 911 (964) TURBO

The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models; most prominently, more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all wheel drive as options. Porsche chose to re-use the 3.3 litre engine from the 930 with several minor revisions resulting in the engine running smoother, being less prone to turbo lag, and more powerful with a total output of 320bhp at 5750rpm. The 964 Turbo is considered to be one of the prettiest 911s built and certainly one of the most powerful.

Registration: G4 TMF Chassis Number: WPOZZZ96ZMS470071 Engine Number: 61M00216 Estimate (£): 85,000 - 100,000

Externally, the car presents very well indeed with good shut lines and straight panels. There is a small area of rust under the driver’s side windscreen, which will require some attention, but it is the intention of the current owner to present the car in as original a condition as possible. The interior is original throughout and will be treated to a refurbishment prior to the auction. The last service was carried out in January by Porsche specialist Perfect Touch. Overall, this 964 Turbo is a highly collectable example that has been carefully maintained and is ready to use and enjoy. Buyers should be aware that the number plate shown is included in the sale.

This stunning 3.3 Litre, 964 Turbo is an original ‘C16’ UK specification, right-hand drive example that was sold new on 8th August 1991 by AFN London, at a cost of over £75,000. Finished in its original and very rare colour of Tahoe Blue with Linen White leather interior, the car has been maintained meticulously since new. The history file on this particular 964 Turbo is one of the best we have seen. Bills and receipts can be found in the folder, along with an original service booklet boasting 20 stamps, original wallet, previous V5 documents, tax discs and lots of MoT certificates that substantiate a total mileage of 65,510 miles from new. A large number of bills and receipts, along with service stamps, document huge expenditure with respected names such as AFN, Autofarm, Paragon and RPM. In addition, an engine rebuild was carried out by the current owner when he bought the car in 2009. Such were his high standards, the car wasn’t actually finished until 2012.

1987 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SE (W126)

The W126 was the flagship ‘S’ class of the Mercedes-Benz range between 1979 and 1991. The entry level was the very popular 280SE, which later became the 300SE in Sep 1985, when Mercedes developped an all new fuel efficient ‘Energy Program’ range of engines, including the new 3.0 litre straight six. This 300SE is from 1987 and is in exceptional condition today, having been on display in the Mercedes-Benz World Museum at Brooklands in Surrey, until very recently. The factory have inspected and maintained this car whilst under their care and regard as it as one of the best and most original right hand drive cars available today.

1988 JAGUAR XJS V12 CONVERTIBLE

The XJS Convertible, which first appeared in 1988 at a price of £36,000, was considerably more than merely a coupé with the roof removed. The earlier ‘T’-top cabriolet paved the way as the first open Jaguar since the demise of the E-Type in 1975, but this was to be the first full convertible and a strengthened sub-frame was employed in order to alleviate scuttle shake. It looked superb and elegant with the hood erect or folded and finally met the demands of the highly valued North American market. Retaining the roomy cockpit space of the coupé, the new convertible boasted a useful shelf for excess luggage and all the expected Jaguar refinements as standard. It made for a very fine open top grand touring car, exceeding the specification of other home-grown machinery and being much cheaper than the equivalent high-profile Mercedes SL. Today, this model is very much establishing itself as a most worthy latter-day classic, good examples being eagerly sought by connoisseurs of the marque.

If 1980’s styling is what you desire, then the XJS Convertible ticks the right boxes, and if you want a modern classic that delivers an enjoyable driving experience with the ability to get you to your destination quickly and in style, then this car has it in bucket loads. Sold with an MoT (expiry date of 30th May 2017), this beautiful XJS Convertible is ready for some roof down, late summer sunshine!

This stunning right-hand drive XJS convertible was built in 1988 and finished in Ice Blue Metallic with a stunning cream leather interior and a blue mohair hood. Described as being in superb original condition, the car is showing just 18,568 miles on the odometer which we believe to be genuine with service records to corroborate its infrequent use. There is a blue mohair cover for the roof when it’s folded down which looks to be in fine condition, along with a full complement of tools in the boot and all of the relevant manuals in their book pack

1997 MITSUBISHI PAJERO EVOLUTION 3.5 V-TIPTRONIC

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.

Registration: TBA Chassis Number: v55-4400603 Engine Number: 6g74 No Reserve

Loaded with extras, including, Sat-Nav, excellent sound system and touch screen entertainment system, the interior is described as well maintained, with no rips, tears or much sign of heavy use and in generally good condition. The engine is said to be smooth and the automatic gearbox is described as very slick and sporty. This Pajero will be UK registered before the Sale and a new MoT certificate will be issued. Offered as a no reserve entry, this rare and distinctive Pajero Evolution must be worth consideration.

This particular right-hand drive automatic car was built in 1997 and is believed to be one of just 2,500 built worldwide. Looking very impressive in Metallic Silver and Shadow Chrome with a contrasting factory Recaro interior, set off by chrome evolution alloys, this righthand drive Pajero Evo is currently reading 92,000 kms. Recently imported from Japan this car is supplied with a documented Japanese Mitsubishi Motors service history and its Evolution Handbook.

The car offered for sale here is a V8-250, manufactured in 1968, but first registered on the 16th January 1969, making it one of last examples. Finished in Old English White, with a red leather interior, this car is in simply fantastic condition, having benefitted from a no-expensespared restoration between 1999 and 2001, carried out by classic Jaguar specialists Martin Robey of Nuneaton. This exacting and wholly thorough process included a full bare metal respray, a complete engine and gearbox strip-down and rebuild, a differential, suspension and axle rebuild, with new discs and pads, new chrome wheels complete with new period tyres. According to the vendor, every component part of the car has been inspected, tested and replaced wherever it was felt necessary or expedient. In addition, the power steering and automatic gearbox have both been refurbished, with the fitting of a new fluted chrome front grill, a new fluted rear bonnet grill, new slim-line chrome bumpers, new chrome trims to bodywork, new headlights, sidelights and indicator lenses. The inside of the car is equally as impressive. All the seats have been re-upholstered in the best quality red leather, with new red carpets throughout, new wooden trims to door sills, dashboard and vanity cupboard. There is a working period radio, heated rear windscreen, and the original patinated steering wheel.

This fabulous car is accompanied by a number of invoices to the value of £71,000. When the restoration was complete in 2001, the car’s indicated mileage was just over 50,000 miles, however, when our car-enthusiast vendor purchased it in 2009, the mileage was still just 51,300 miles. Since this time, the vendor has thoroughly enjoyed the car, driving it with confidence throughout Europe and the current mileage is 57,000, meaning that the car has only covered approximately 7,000 miles in the last 15 years. Apparently, the car has performed perfectly, and benefitting from regular maintenance and up-keep, still looks and feels in superb condition today. The comprehensive history file also contains the car’s original buff log-book, a Jaguar/Daimler Heritage certificate helping to confirm its matching-numbers status, an original Daimler Service Manual, numerous MoT certificates (from 2001 to 2016) and an original Daimler promotional brochure for the V8-250. Equally as attractive as a Mk2 Jaguar with a charismatic engine, these Daimlers are nearly always a little cheaper to buy and have a discerning following. In this super condition, this late-sixties sporting saloon is not to be missed.

2006 BMW Z4 ROADSTER

The BMW Z4 was introduced in 2002 and was styled by BMW’s Danish designer Anders Warming. The car had its own unique appeal that helped it take on the Porsche Boxster directly, where the Z3 had always trailed in the Porsche’s wake. Thanks to a spread of engines and dose of practicality, the Z4 also managed to challenge the Mercedes SLK and Audi TT to be a very competent all-round roadster. Produced in BMW’s Spartanburg factory in South Carolina it was obvious the main market for the Z4 was in the USA. That hasn’t stopped it being a success in the UK, which has been a strong market for the BMW convertible. This superb example is a practical 2.0 Litre model that has covered just 32,127 miles and has been cherished by 1 owner from new.

The Defender always sat happily alongside the Range Rover and the Discovery in Land Rover’s model line-up, eschewing those cars luxury trimmings for no-nonsense straight-edged styling and a utilitarian interior. 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 LR 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 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, 2401 cc, 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 and all its relevant manuals, this fabulous understated, possibly unique, Land Rover is ready for a new owner. Just don’t get it wet!!!

1986 PORSCHE 911 SUPERSPORT COUPÉ

The early history of the iconic Porsche 911 is well documented, however, the mid eighties saw the replacement for the successful ‘SC’ model by the new “Carrera”model which was to be built between 1984 and 1989. In 1984 Porsche introduced the M491 option, which was officially called the Supersport, but was commonly known as the ‘Turbo body’. It featured the Turbo wider wheel arches front and rear and the distinctive “Whale Tail”. It also featured the stiffer Turbo suspension and the superior Turbo braking system, as well as the wider Turbo wheels and tyres. This stunning Supersport is one of only 3 UK right-hand drive cars to be supplied in a rare Iris Blue metallic finish with blue leather upholstery. Built and delivered in October 1985 the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms the following factory options were originally fitted:

Registration: C660 XLK Chassis Number: WPOZZZ91ZGS100157 Engine Number: 63G00168 Estimate (£): 45,000 - 55,000

Today the car still has the original service pack and handbooks as well as a comprehensive history file. This confirms that it has benefitted from continual improvement, including a gearbox rebuild in 2007, a complete respray 3-4 years ago, refurbished rare original Fuchs alloy wheels, new tyres, and a brand new fuel tank was recently fitted. Now recognised as highly collectable, this Supersport has an MoT until 25th November 2016 and is ready to use and enjoy. These are rare cars with the dramatic looks of a ‘Turbo’ and the somewhat more civilised characteristics of the regular Carrera, and in delightful ‘Iris Blue’, this is a very special Porsche.

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. In the never-ending quest for better handling, the Evoluzione had a wider front and rear track than earlier Deltas and in order to squeeze this under the bodywork, the already wide wheel arches were extended even further and in the process also became more rounded. The ‘new’ Integrale retained the four-wheel-drive layout with an epicyclic centre diff and torque splitter, plus a Ferguson viscous coupling and Torsen rear differential. The engine, although technically the same as the earlier 16V cars, was remapped to give 210bhp at 5750rpm in order to compensate for the slight increase in weight and increased frontal area.

This immaculate, one owner, left-hand drive, ‘Evo II’ is finished in Metallic Cherry Red with a beige interior. With only 62,000 miles from new and with 18 service stamps in the book, it’s in exceptional condition throughout and really needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated. Recently imported and with all current UK V5 documentation, it will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT. This Little Red Rocket is in superb condition and has patently been cherished in the past. Integrales are quick usable classics and the market for them continues to strengthen.

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” 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

1970 LOTUS ELAN S4 DHC

Handles like nothing else can...the Lotus Elan. Colin Chapman said; ‘In producing the latest Lotus Drophead and Fixed-head Coupé models, my design team set out to combine the outstandingly successful chassis, suspension and handling of the Elan with finely styled bodywork which would add functional good looks to the traditional Lotus handling and safety. We specified the comfort and silence of a luxury saloon. Finally, I demanded even higher standards of safety, quality and reliability than those that have made the Elan famous. All these objectives have been achieved in the new Lotus Elan S4 and I am proud to offer it for your consideration’. The Lotus Elan features a very strong steel backbone chassis on which is mounted, like a saddle, a GRP body. It has 4-wheel disc brakes and independent suspension all round. Power is delivered from the famous Lotus 1558cc Twin Cam engine through a Ford 4-speed gearbox to the rear wheels. This results in a compliant ride and very nimble handling characteristics. The Elan has enjoyed significant success in motor sport since the days it was launched and is often seen in large numbers at historic racing events. Production volume of the Elan S4 was about 3000 cars in total, with a small percentage of which was the SE version. The ‘Special Equipment’ version differs by having servo assisted brakes, an SE engine developing 118 bhp instead of 105 bhp, safety belts, a leather covered steering wheel, knock-on wheels with chrome embellishers, carpeted boot interior and Special Equipment badges. This 1970 S4 is a factory built SE, drophead convertible. Having had just 5 owners from new, the car presents superbly, having undergone a full restoration between 2008 - 2010 by well-regarded Lotus specialists ‘UK Sportscars’ in Kent.

A new ‘Spyder Engineering’ spaceframe chassis was fitted, and the body was taken back to a bare shell and re-finished in the current Sprint colours of red, white and gold. At the same time, the engine was fully rebuilt using QED supplied components, and the car benefitted from new carpets, hood and tonneau cover, amongst many other new parts. That was under 3,000 miles ago, and the car has only been used for high days and holidays since. The current enthusiast owner has substantially improved this super Elan since purchasing it some 3 years ago, sending it to Spyder Engineering near Peterborough, to go through and improve as required. In the last 500 miles, a large number of new and uprated parts have been fitted. The extensive list is as follows: Electronic ignition, alternator, hi-torque starter, electric fuel pump, stainless exhaust manifold, electric fan, Spyder high capacity alloy radiator, alloy fuel tank, heavy duty battery, immobiliser, battery charging point, Spyder driveshafts, Spyder adjustable rear wishbone arms, refurbished wheels, handbrake cable and pads, choke cable, tyres, fuel pipes, carb rebuild, anti-roll bar, engine mounts, inertia seat belts, boot board and carpet, clutch cylinder and hose, track rod ends, refinished cam cover with stainless nuts, repainted bumpers and, electric window motors rebuilt. The result is a fantastically sorted car that handles just as it should. Elans are possibly one of the most rewarding and affordable classics you can buy. Small, nimble and eye-wateringly fast along with plenty of room for even the tallest of drivers, this is a car sure to put a smile on your face and one to use and enjoy for many years to come.

2003 BMW E46 M3 CONVERTIBLE

Continuing BMW’s legendary reputation for producing fabulous small sporting saloons, the E46 BMW M3 was launched in October 2000 and featured the new 3.2 litre, S54 M-tuned engine. Offered in either coupé or convertible body styles, the car had a manual 6-speed gearbox as standard, or one could option an SMG 6-speed gearbox that had an electro-hydraulically actuated clutch, meaning that there was no clutch pedal, and gear changes could be made via the SMG gear lever or paddle shifts on the steering column. The E46 M3 was full of electronic gadgetry which included driver aids such as Dynamic Stability Control, Cornering Brake Control and a Limited Slip Differential. With a reported top speed of 155mph and 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds, this M3 certainly lived up to its name and did not disappoint!

1978 PORSCHE 911 3.0 SC

In 1978, Porsche introduced their latest development of the 911, christened the ‘911 SC’, with the SC standing for Super Carrera, Powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a five-speed, 915 transmission, power output initially was 180bhp, later 188bhp and then, in 1981, it was increased to a heady 204bhp. 1979 was the year that Porsche had envisioned that their new 928 would replace the 911 (we are still waiting for that to happen), however, 911 sales remained so strong that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into their core model. This early SC was manufactured in 1978 and is finished in Red with a black leather interior, piped in red and its history file shows that the car had spent a number of years in Ireland, with Irish Vehicle Test Certificates dating from 1993. Historical photos and invoices show the car had a wings-off respray in the late 1990s, and a letter

2005 ASTON MARTIN DB9 VOLANTE

Launched at the 2003 Frankfurt motor show, the exceptional Aston Martin DB9 promised to be one of the most sought after supercars of the decade. Henrik Fisker’s flowing design retained all the good looks of its predecessor, the highly acclaimed DB7. Weight was kept low by the use of aluminium and composites for the bodywork while power from the V12 was a healthy 450bhp which provided the Aston with acceleration to 100mph from standstill in only 10 seconds, then on to a near 190mph maximum speed. Weight distribution was a perfect 50:50 thanks to the front-mid engine layout with a rear-mounted sequential transmission. This right-hand drive DB9 Volante was sold new in 2005 by Stratstone of Wilmslow and has covered a mere 12,800 miles since then. Purchased by our vendor with just 64 miles on the clock, it’s presented in pristine condition inside and out. The service history is equally impressive, substantiating the low mileage and providing reassurance that the car has been maintained carefully by our vendor.

The paintwork retains a deep shine and the colour perfectly suits the subtle lines of the DB9. The interior is finished in black leather and complements the paintwork beautifully. The leather is blemish free and the carpets look factory fresh. The soft top is in good condition with virtually no blemishes to the canvas or headlining and the roof operating system works without fault at the push of a button. The engine is in fine health, fires up with haste and sounds throaty yet civilised, and the gearbox operates correctly and offers seamless gear changes in both automatic mode or using the paddles. On the road, the car handles sublimely and is remarkably refined over even the bumpiest of terrain. No untoward noises or knocks can be felt or heard and the car tracks perfectly true with no vibration. This DB9 Volante represents an ideal opportunity to acquire a fabulous low mileage Aston Martin at a fraction of its cost when new.

The Ford Cortina GT was already building a major reputation for competitive success in International rallying and circuit racing when Walter Hayes of Ford approached Colin Chapman and Lotus and discussed how they could further build the potential of this car. The new Ford Cortina-Lotus or ‘Lotus-Cortina’ entered production in February 1963, with a starting price of £910. While the road cars boasted 105bhp, the racing version possessed more like 150bhp. Once fully developed, Lotus-Cortinas absolutely shone on track driven by household names including Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, Jackie Ickx, Roger Clark and many, many more.

Produced from 1992 until 2003, the Ferrari 456 and later 456 M are front-engined ‘Grand Tourers’ in true Ferrari tradition, and were an overdue replacement for the outdated front-engined 412 which had been the company’s premium four-seat V12 car for many years. The name ‘456’ refers to the fact that each cylinder displaces 456 cubic centimeters and this was the last Ferrari to use this naming convention. Despite its supercar performance, 436bhp, 0-60mph in 5.2 secs, and a top speed of 188mph, the 456 has a relatively unstressed engine which has proven to be a very reliable unit. Its looks are smooth and understated, and distinctive external features include a small grille with fog lights on the outside, bonnet-mounted air scoops (removed on the 456M), a motorised undercarriage spoiler that begins its deployment above 65 mph and pop-up headlights, making this the last Ferrari to do so. The model was warmly received by press and enthusiasts alike, and although not produced in large numbers was always gently in demand by ‘silver-haired’ Ferrari owners before the 456M was eventually replaced in 2004 by the 612 Scaglietti. This particular Ferrari 456 GTA automatic was sold new to its first owner, a Mr D. Bralsford on 27th May 1997, by the then sole Channel Islands Distributor of Ferraris, Melbourne Garage in Jersey.

1964 MORRIS MINI COOPER 998

Father of the Mini, Alec Issigonis was firmly against the idea of a performance version of his new baby, despite several long evenings of animated discussion with his good friend, F1 guru, John Cooper in the Royal Oak. However, after JC appealed to BMC Management, Issigonis’ concerns were disregarded and the two good friends eventually cooperated in creating what rapidly became and still remains a legendary little motor car. The first cars used a 997cc twincarb A-series, changed for a short-stroke 998cc unit from 1964. Front disc brakes were standard and Mini-Coopers stood out thanks to their two-tone paint schemes and special grilles. Speeds of around 90mph may not have been all-out fast, but the Cooper’s handling brilliance turned it into a potent race and rally tool. The car offered here is a 1964 Morris Mini Cooper 998cc, manufactured for the UK home market on the 13th October 1964 and dispatched on the 5th November 1964 to Parkside Garages Ltd. in Coventry. This very original example still wears its Coventry number plate, whilst retaining its original chassis and drive-train (supported by inspection, corresponding paperwork and a BMIHT Certificate). It was discovered by a previous owner back in 1979, during a business trip to a farm in Kent. Purchased on the spot to prevent the farmer’s sons ‘rallying’ it around the fields, it soon became apparent that it was in very sound order. Over the ensuing years, the owner stripped it right down, replacing the Hydrolastic suspension with Alex Moulton’s dry rubber system which was re-introduced to the Mini a few years after this one was made. Painted Red and White when purchased, the car was repainted in its original combination of Tweed Grey and Old English White, and remains in standard specification, including

the original interior, with the exception of wider vented wheels and a sports steering wheel. In the history file, there is a Heritage Certificate, some MoT certificates confirming the indicated mileage, as well as a selection of DVLA paperwork and a number of invoices for recent work. There are also some entry forms (and the odd trophy) for the many Classic Car Shows in which this cracking little Mini Cooper has shone. Some recent work carried out includes refurbishment of the original wheels, new brakes, a new battery, new chrome trims, a full service and a fresh MoT. The vendor informs us the car is in excellent mechanical condition and drives superbly. Those of us old enough to remember these cars when they were first introduced, will recall how achingly desirable they seemed at the time, and even now our children see them as being archetypically cool ‘Sixties’. Red with a Black roof and Green with a White roof were the most common choices, however, Justin de Villeneuve and Twiggy had a Tweed Grey car with a White roof, which says it all really. This 1964, 998cc Mini Cooper is in excellent all round condition and is as much fun to drive now as it was in period. Have a look at this super little car and let yourself be captivated by its charm and honesty. It might be like getting together with an old friend from 1964 and finding them just as you remember them.

The Porsche 911 GT2, manufactured between 1993-2012, was the pinnacle of the Porsche’s performance car line-up and the most expensive model in that range. It was based on the 911 Turbo of the day but featured an upgraded turbo, larger brakes and competition derived suspension. It was also lighter than the Turbo being only available as a rear wheel drive car (N.B.The 993 and 996 versions did not feature traction control!) and always featured a lightweight, stripped-out interior. It was available in the 993, 996 and 997 generations of the Porsche 911.

2000 PORSCHE 911 (996) MILLENNIUM EDITION

Registration: V883 LDE Chassis Number: WP0ZZZ99ZYS602066 Engine Number: 66Y05920 Estimate (£): 35,000 - 40,000

The Porsche 911 (996) was first introduced in 1997 and represented a dramatic (and controversial) change for the company as it was the first water-cooled 911. The 996 was the first truly modern 911 - drive a 993 today and, by comparison, it will feel great but old, almost like a classic with its archaic switchgear and awkward ergonomics. The new car was far more practical too, with more space for touring, a roomier cabin and a structure that was 45% stiffer, yet despite all of this the 996 was 50kg lighter than the outgoing model.

Maple trim. This model also comes with the short-shift 6-speed manual gearbox and sports suspension (being 10mm lower than standard). As you’d expect for such a car, they have a very high specification including 18-inch Chrome ‘Turbo Look’ wheels, power sunroof, digital sound package, heated seats, power seat package, lumbar support, headlight washers, rear window wiper, Litronic (Xenon) headlights, onboard computer, Remote CD changer, navigation system and Porsche car-phone etc.

The car offered here is no mainstream or ordinary 996. This is a very rare model indeed. This is a 2000 Porsche 911 (996) ‘Millennium Edition’. In celebration of the Millennium, Porsche created just 911 special versions of its 996 Carrera 4 Coupé, appropriately named and based on the well-regarded all-wheel drive Carrera 4 with the 3.4-litre 300 bhp engine.

The car is described by its fastidious vendor as being in immaculate condition, both inside and out. Knowing something of his exacting standards when it comes to his cars, it really will be. This particular example has been rarely used, and is in beautiful original condition, including the underside. The chrome alloy wheels are unmarked and fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.

This is number 493, denoted by a commemorative plaque on the dashboard, and we believe it’s 1 of only 3 RHD UK ‘Millennium Edition’ cars. Delivered new to Jersey, the car has had two owners and covered just 23,088 miles having spent some of this time in a private collection, before being registered in the UK in 2015 with all taxes paid at the time. The car comes with a full service history, showing eight stamps in the book by Porsche main dealers and marque specialists,and was last serviced on the 7th May 2015 at 23,088 miles. Also in the history file is the original Bill of Sale along with numerous receipts for servicing and maintenance.

At the time of writing, there are no other ‘Millennium Editions’ currently for sale in the UK. This particular car is most likely the best example available anywhere. The 911 3.0, SC and 3.2, along with the 993 are seeing their values rise in the wake of the ‘911 explosion’, whilst the competent and well-engineered 996 is now happily being recognised as a very desirable ‘modern classic’. These rare limited-edition models are much sought-after by Porsche enthusiasts for good reason, and this is a superb example of a rare car.

These extraordinary cars are all painted in the unique colour of Chromaflar Violet (very deep purple), contrasting favourably with an interior combination of Millennium Natural Brown hide and dark Burr-

At the Geneva Motor Show in 1999, Aston Martin introduced the long awaited Vantage version of their successful DB7. Sporting a Cosworth designed, 5.9 litre V12 producing a creamy 420bhp the car was superquick and was electronically limited to 185mph. The V12 had a serious appetite for air compared to its 6-cylinder predecessor, demanding a larger intake and other modifications to the frontal airflow were made to aid cooling. Other changes included chassis and braking upgrades, to cope with the increased performance and Ian Callum enlarged the grill, added fog lamps and restyled the valances to give the car a more purposeful look. The Vantage interior leather trim was cut and sewn at a special trim shop at Newport Pagnell, where the carpet and wood veneers were also prepared. The 5.9 Litre V12 Vantage Volante, costing over £100,000 at its launch, remained in production until 2004. This particular car is a 2000 DB7 Vantage Volante V12 with the ultradesirable and rare 6-speed manual gearbox. It is superbly finished in one of the best colour combinations of Solent Silver Metallic with a Pacific Blue leather interior, and matching dashboard and carpets.

2014 ALFA ROMEO 4C TBI S-A

The Alfa Romeo 4C caused a sensation when it was revealed in ‘concept’ form at the Geneva show in 2011. The production version followed soon after, with exactly the same catwalk looks, while power came from a lusty 237bhp version of the 1.75-litre four-cylinder turbo found in the Giulietta Cloverleaf, mated to a six-speed TCT twin-clutch gearbox. This lightweight, rear wheel drive junior Italian supercar, was designed by Lorenzo Ramaciotti at the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo (Style Centre) and developed by Alfa Romeo. The Concept Car was the recipient of a host of International awards when it was first shown to the World and the production version, which differed little from the concept, was equally féted winning the “Most Beautiful Car of the Year 2013” at the 29th International Automobile Festival in France.

This sensational 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C TBI S-A was first registered in September 2014 by Guest Alfa Romeo of Willenhall for use by their dealer principal.

The Bentley Turbo R was a high-performance model produced by Bentley Motors Limited from 1985 to 1997. The “R” stood for “road holding”, to set it apart from its predecessor, the square headlight Mulsanne Turbo. It initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo and also sported retuned suspension and wider tires on alloy wheels, a first for a Bentley. From 1987, however, the Turbo R’s V8 engine was fitted with fuel injection for added torque. Motor Trend called the Turbo R “the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name” in their review of the car on its introduction to the United States in 1989, with car enthusiast Jay Leno first in the queue. It is quite hard for this consignor to describe driving a Turbo R. The engine is so quiet, the ride so smooth and the acres of leather and wood lulls you into a sense of security. You look down to find, to your alarm, that you are travelling at twice the speed you thought you were. The acceleration, with virtually no turbo lag, is almost linear, yet rear seat passengers continue to enjoy a ‘magic carpet’, ride. The Bentley Turbo RT was the last, rarest, most powerful and most expensive of the Turbo R line and was fitted with the 400 bhp (298 kW; 406 PS) twin-turbo 6.75 L V8 engine from the two-door Continental T. Performance was ‘more than adequate’ with a top speed limited to 150 mph. It is visually differentiated from other Bentley Turbo R models by

its sports wheels, radiator mesh grille and colour-coded bumpers with bright mesh inserts. The ultra-luxurious Turbo RT was built between 1997 and 1998, with just 252 cars produced prior to the introduction of the Arnage. This lovely example was registered, on the 24th July 1998, to a member of the Diplomatic Service through main dealer Jack Barclay of Mayfair. The car was originally supplied with various special order Mulliner extras, including chrome headlight surrounds and door sill plates, which it still retains. The history boasts main dealer receipts and a number of respected specialists with the most recent invoice for both cylinder head gaskets to be replaced and an accompanying receipt on file for £6,000. Bought by our vendor from Cheshire Classic Cars in March 2015 after a lengthy search on the recommendation of Martin Chisholm Collector Cars. The car presents wonderfully with a suitably regal but modern colour combination of Ocean Mica Metallic with a Magnolia leather interior. Showing some 47,300 miles this special Bentley will be presented to auction with a new MOT and freshly serviced.

1978 DATSUN 260Z

The Datsun 260Z was the second generation of ‘Z’ two-seat coupés produced by Nissan in Japan from 1975 to 1978. Its dramatic looks owed a considerable amount to a 1960’s styling concept drawn by Count Albrecht Goertz for Datsun, presumably at a time when they were considering ways to break into the European sports car market. The 260Z coupé replaced the 240Z. The engine was enlarged with a longer stroke to 2.6 litres with a consequential increase in power from 150bhp to 165 bhp and the car was stiffened by the extension of the chassis rails and the addition of a rear roll bar. Much like the 240Z, the car was fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard and the car featured independent suspension all round with MacPherson struts at the front and Chapman links at the rear. Rack and pinion power steering and front disc brakes meant that the ‘Z’ cars were a thoroughly modern package indeed. The Datsun 260Z offered here is an original UK, RHD car first registered on 10/3/1978 and has only had two owners having been purchased from the original owner by our vendor in 1994. At the time of purchase, our vendor had spent a long time trying to source the best 260Z possible and ended up selecting this car because of its very low mileage and single ownership.

Registration: SHT 800S Chassis Number: RS30-021058 Engine Number: L26-200294 Estimate (£): 25,000 - 35,000

When the car was pulled out of storage it underwent a thorough inspection by specialist Richard Thorne Classic Cars. The engine was turned by hand and then connected to a small auxiliary fuel tank to bypass the fuel tank/lines and briefly started and run with no obvious issues. In order for a new owner to fully run the car, the condition of the inside of the tank and fuel lines would need to be inspected and old fuel drained. It would also need a full mechanical service including thoroughly going through the braking system. Finished in a striking shade of Copper Bronze Metallic, the bodywork is generally in very good condition with small, localised bubbles of rust here and there and some surface rust on the chrome work. There are some minor paint blisters in various places, mainly on the roof. The underside looks fine with some minor surface rust, however, it appears to wear its original paint and has been ‘Waxoyled’ in the past. Inside the car is in very good original condition showing no obvious signs of excessive use. Presented as it was the day it left storage, this car is possibly an unrepeatable opportunity to own what could be one of the lowest mileage ‘Z’ cars in existence. Ready for recommissioning or preserving, this rare car would be a very rewarding and straightforward project.

After purchasing the car it was used sparingly for just one year before a change in circumstances meant that the car was put into storage in 1995 showing just 8,150 miles on the clock from new. It would remain there for a further 21 years, untouched, until being revealed in May of this year.

It wasn’t until a suggestion by Shah of Iran, that the car was offered as a civilian vehicle in 1979, with refinements coming 2 years later by way of air-conditioning, automatic transmission, a cable winch and protective headlamp grilles. Further improvements were offered in later years including more comfortable front seats, wider tyres & arches, central locking and differential locks.

1993 HONDA NSX

The legendary Honda NSX (standing for New Sportscar Experimental) was developed by the Honda Motor Corporation between 1984 and its eventual launch in 1990, with major chassis and suspension input from three times F1 World Champion, Ayrton Senna. The NSX featured a state of the art 3.0-litre V6 ‘VTEC’ engine (variable valve timing) and an all-aluminium monocoque body, encompassing a revolutionary extruded aluminium alloy frame and suspension. This made the car extremely light and extremely strong. Other game-changing features included 4-channel ABS brakes, titanium connecting rods in the engine and later in the model’s life - an electric power steering system as well as an upgrade to a 3.2-litre V6 engine. The car was the first real Japanese ‘Supercar’, proving itself and quickly establishing respect from its key competitors. Production continued right up until 2005, with only subtle changes made throughout its life. Offered here is a right-hand drive Honda NSX supplied new by Tokyo Honda, Aoyama Branch 2 in 1993 and finished in Silver with a Black roof and a black leather interior.

Firmly placed in Ferrari’s history as one of their finest big GTs, the 550 Maranello’s combination of its stylish Pininfarina lines and front mounted 12-cylinder engine meant this car had the potential to become an instant classic, following in the footsteps of its forebear, the 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’.

The Porsche 911 has featured consistently in the top ten cars of our generation. With a motorsport pedigree unsurpassed by any other car with true production underpinnings, it’s not surprising the 911 has endeared itself to the world. Coming of age at the beginning of the seventies, with wins at the Daytona 24hrs and the Targa Florio, they have never stopped winning since and cinema goers worldwide became familiar with the distinctive shape as the car of choice for a number of top stars. For 1972, the 911 had two major revisions, the most significant being an increase in capacity to 2341cc (known as the 2.4) but remained on carburettors, and externally an aggressive new front spoiler was incorporated below the bumper. This original right-hand drive, UK-delivered Porsche 911 2.4 T was first registered in 1972 and was specified in the ‘groovy’ colour of Royal Purple.

1949 LAND ROVER SERIES l 80’’

In the aftermath of World War Two, Rover’s chief engineer Maurice Wilks used a ‘demobbed’ Willys Jeep around his farm in Anglesey and was impressed with its abilities. Eventually, it wore out and he was keen to replace it with a British vehicle, however, nothing remotely similar was available. Coincidentally, his brother Spencer, who was Managing Director at Rover, had reached the same conclusion as he struggled to get his Rover 10 to reach the more inaccessible parts of his estate on Islay. It was whilst the brothers were on holiday on their North Wales farm together, that the plan was hatched to produce a light agricultural utility vehicle in the style of Maurice’s, fondly remembered, Jeep. They would have no idea that Maurice’s resulting design would become an icon and launch a whole new industry sector. The vehicle appeared as the ‘Land Rover’ in 1948, and proved so popular with the military and the farming fraternity that demand massively outstripped supply. It had an 80 inch wheelbase and a sturdy box section ladder-frame chassis and the open back arrangement with three seats in the front was undoubtedly influenced by the design of the Jeep. Naturally these vehicles were subject to lots of developments over a period of time and one of the most important of these was extending the wheelbase to give the vehicle a greater load capacity. Originally produced with a 1,600cc Petrol engine, Land Rover replaced this with the larger 2.0-litre petrol engine which was fitted between 1951 and 1958. Silverstone Auctions has had the honour of selling several early Land Rovers but this example of the iconic design is one of the earliest we have seen.

The ‘holy grail’ for any Land Rover enthusiast is an early Series l, and there are a number of visual clues for an early car. The lights must be behind the grille, no exterior door handles and a 1,600cc engine. The Land Rover offered here is a 1949 (for model year 1950) Series l 80’’ (Chassis number: R01603967). It was first registered in November 1949 and was dispatched to a quarry in Hertfordshire. Later in its life, this exceptionally well-preserved early example, did a stint over in France until 2007, when it was bought back to the UK. At some point, a previous owner has installed a later diesel Land Rover engine under the bonnet; however, very importantly, it does come with a period-correct 1,600cc petrol unit (that will require some recommissioning), bearing the correct serial number for this age of vehicle. This Land Rover also comes with its all-important Heritage Certificate and potentially, by seperate negotiation, some additional original spare parts. Series l Land Rovers with this level of preservation and originality are becoming rarer and much sought-after. This is where the legend started, the very basic yet ingenious go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle and this example has a patina and feel that would be impossible to replicate. Given the current market for early Series 1 Land Rovers, it represents excellent value and offers a new owner the option of taking advantage of its sound condition and side-plate engine as the basis of a total restoration or perhaps just recommissioning and preserving in its current charismatic state.

In period, the Ferrari 456 was the fastest production four-seater in the world. Powered by what was essentially a detuned version of the engine powering the 550 and 575, the new 5.5-litre V12 unleashed no less than 442 bhp and, except for the F40, the 456 was the most powerful road car developed by Ferrari up to that point. Pininfarina worked its magic on the 456 to create a subtly beautiful and curvaceous body contrasting with the hard edges of its predecessor. Aerodynamically efficient, the 456 remained stable up to its maximum speed of around 190 mph. Acclaimed on its debut, the 456’s styling has not dated and is a tribute to Pininfarina’s vision in creating one of the most beautiful vehicle designs of modern times. The ‘Modificata’ 456 M appeared in 1998, starting with chassis number 109589 and incorporated a number of changes including improvements to the aerodynamics and cooling, and the interior, still featuring Connolly Leather, was freshened up with new seats and other detailing. This left-hand drive 456M GTA was delivered new in 2002 and sold to a German collector. It then moved to sunny Monaco and displays an impressive mileage of only 37,661 kilometres or 23,401 miles from new.

The 308 GTB was launched at the Paris Motor show in 1975 as a direct replacement for the Dino 246, and the innovative Pininfarina design with sweeping curves and aggressive lines has gone on to become one of the most recognised Ferraris of all time. Fitted with a 2.9 litre DOHC V8 engine fitted with four Weber 40DCNF Carburetors that produced 255bhp, it was the first of ledgendary rear engined V8 Ferraris. The 308 would accelerate from 0 to 60mph in 6.5 seconds and was capable of reaching 159 mph. In 1980, ‘more manageable’ fuel injection replaced the Webers and, embarassingly, power went down from 255 bhp to 214 bhp, however, two years later four valves per cylinder were added giving ‘Quattro Valvole’ models 240bhp. The 308 was manufactured in both GTB and GTS forms from 1977 to 1985 before being replaced by the 328.

Ferrari has covered 23,500 miles in total, which is just over 600 a year. The original kph calibrated speedometer is still with the car. This low mileage is corroborated by a pile of old MoTs (excluding the first 4 years), the stamped service book, and a number of old invoices for services and work done dating back to 1980. The history file is extensive and along with the aforementioned invoices, MoTs and service records, there are awards for winning Concours and other classic shows from bygone years. The much-coveted, original tool roll is also present with the vehicle as is its original book pack and copies of magazines in which this sparkling Ferrari has appeared.

First registered on 08/04/1978, this rare, dry sump, carburetor Ferrari 308 GTB Chassis #23533, is one of the earliest right-hand drive GTB steel bodied cars.

From more recent times there is an invoice in 2013 from DK engineering for the sum of £3,500 for a service and general mechanical maintenance, followed by another in December 2015 for an extensive service by Carr’s Ferrari Main Dealer which included all belts, plugs, points and a gearbox service.

Clearly a much-loved car throughout its life, the first owner must have been quite a Ferrari aficionado having highly specified the car initially and adding rare factory options such as the boot spoiler. There is even an original letter from Ferrari, thanking the first owner for his purchase, in the history file.

Chassis #23533 must be one of the best examples of the 308 GTB out there. Ticking all the boxes for any astute car aficionado and perspicacious Ferrari collector. Low mileage, an excellent history and in remarkable condition, along with being one of the most desirable models and specifications money can buy.

It appears this lovely Ferrari was seldom used, and between 1978 and 1994 it only covered 6,768 miles. A letter from Ferrari main dealer, Mortimer Houghton Turner in Gloucester dated 28th April 1994, states that the speedometer was replaced due to it being calibrated in kms rather than miles from the factory. The car now shows 16,675 and, combined with the previous 6,768 miles, means that this cherished

1964 MORRIS MINOR 1000 CONVERTIBLE

After 14 years, and with over a million cars sold, Morris decided in 1962, that there might still be enough mileage in the Morris Minor for one last final nudge towards the future. The model range was completely comprehensive from saloon to pick-up, and there were still customers for the car, both at home and overseas, so the only way forward was to make it a bit more powerful and perhaps a touch more comfortable. Although the name Minor 1000 was retained, the changes were sufficient for the new model to be given its own ADO development number (ADO59). A larger version of the existing A-Series engine had been developed in conjunction with cylinder head specialist Harry Weslake for the, then new, ADO16 Austin/Morris 1100 range and these engines were now in production although the car wasn’t, so it could do no harm to provide it with some test mileage under the bonnet of the new Morris Minor. This new engine used a taller block to the 948cc unit, with increased bore and stroke bringing total capacity up to 1098cc. Other changes included a modified dashboard layout with toggle switches, textured steel instrument binnacle, and larger convex glove box covers. A different heater completed the interior upgrade, whilst larger combined front side/indicator light units, common to many BMC vehicles of the time, were fitted to the front wings. These now included a separate bulb and amber lens for indicators while larger tail lamp units also included amber rear flashers.

Isle of Wight, it was eventually purchased by our vendor, himself an Island resident, who was a neighbour of the original owners. The saloon body shell had been converted to a soft-top by an ex-Morris employee who had, in fact, worked at ‘The Morris’ doing similar work. The converted body stood in his garage for ten years, as an unfinished project, until purchased in 2002 by our vendor who then set about finishing the task in hand. The initial preparation was carried out by ‘Austin Morris Services’ on the Isle of Wight and after that, the final aspects of the job and the detailing were entrusted to well-regarded Morris Minor specialists, Charles Ware Morris Minor in Bristol. The car was completed on 23/10/09 and driven back to its home on the IOW, and the history file contains invoices and photos of the finished article in 2009. ADL 372B presents well in Dark Blue with a Light Cream hood and a Mid Blue and Parchment Leather interior. The speedometer indicates 275 miles, presumably covered since its restoration, but that can’t be confirmed. The engine bay looks excellent as does every other aspect of this Minor convertible. This, well-restored, ‘Moggy’ ragtop is a timeless classic, and in this condition, together with its distinctive exhaust burble, will surely turn every journey into a fun trip.

The Lancia Delta was first seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1979 and its development, the Delta Integrale, is perhaps best known for its domination of the World Rally Championship in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The first ‘Evoluzione’ cars were built at the end of 1991 and carried on through 1992. These were to be the final homologation cars built for the Lancia Rally Team, which raced under the Martini Racing banner. The Evoluzione II was never actually rallied by the factory themselves. In order to improve the handling, the Evoluzione had a wider track, front and rear, than earlier Deltas and in order to fit this revised track into the bodywork, the already wide wheel arches were extended even further and in the process also became more rounded. The new Integrale retained the four-wheel drive layout with an epicyclic centre diff with torque splitter, a Ferguson designed viscous coupling, and a Torsen rear differential. The engine, although technically the same as the earlier 16V cars, was remapped to give 210bhp at 5750rpm in order to compensate for the slight increase in weight and increased frontal area. These improvements were aimed at improving the handling potential of the car and it worked, with the new Integrale being considerably quicker over rally stages on both asphalt and gravel.

1986 PORSCHE 911 (930) TURBO SE ‘FLATNOSE’

Anyone who followed the “World Championship of Makes” (essentially an international championship for long-distance Sports Car racing), will remember their surprise at the shape of the new 935 when it first appeared at Mugello in March 1976. Subsequently, these ‘Flachbau’ or ‘Flatnose’ 935s and 936s were to prove very competitive in the hands of drivers such as Ickx, Mass, and Stommelen and during the next two seasons managed four victories in eight World Championship races and a triumph at Le Mans in each year. However, Porsche began to worry that all these victories by the works Flatnose cars might alienate the vast number of private clients who were investing their own money in conventionally shaped competition 911s, and decided to restrict their efforts for 1978 to an entry at Le Mans. The distinctive look of the ‘Flachbau’ (literally translated as Low Build) obviously retained its appeal in the minds of their road car customers and from 1985 until early 1989, UK Porsche 930 buyers could specify their car in this style to special order. As confirmed by a letter from Porsche Cars GB Ltd, this 930 Turbo is a genuine right-hand drive, factory flatnose built in October 1986 under the ‘Sonderwunchprogramm’ (Special Wishes Programme). From the 948 cars produced between 1983 and 1989, this is one of the 49 righthand drive examples manufactured. This Porsche was ordered via a dealer in Switzerland in 1986, bound for a client in South Africa. He changed his mind and wanted to buy a Lamborghini and, as it happened, the person who became the first owner had just taken delivery of a Lamborghini to the correct specification in the UK; the dealer in Switzerland contacted him and asked if it was for sale, it was, so he took the Lamborghini to Switzerland

Despite this, it has stayed in his possession all of its life and is offered with its original registration number D294 ALR. The car was maintained in its early life by Swinford Motors Porsche dealer (Stourbridge), then by Wildcat Racing (Birmingham) during the mid-90s and, subsequently, by the Porscheshop between 2000 and 2015. The vendor has had confirmation from these companies and is trying to obtain copies of invoices. The car’s original matching numbers engine has covered just 69,700 miles. Mechanically, the car is in very good condition and recently over £10,000 has been spent with a Porsche specialist who has replaced the camshafts, the oil feed tubes, fitted a new ignition system and carried out a service. Finished in Guards Red with a Red piped Cream leather interior and fitted with the correct colour-coded Fuchs wheels, this 930 Turbo is supplied with an MoT test certificate, a copy of the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and the letter from Porsche GB confirming that this is an original ‘flatnose’ model. This very special car is a blue-chip icon of its era and represents an exciting opportunity for any lover of the Porsche marque.

Some cars need no introduction and the Jaguar E-Type is no exception. The Series II Jaguar E-Types 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 larger front indicators were 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. This delightful, Wedgewood Blue, Series II Fixedhead Coupé was delivered new to Henleys of Manchester on the 30th April 1970. The Heritage Certificate lists the original dealer as Braid Bros. of Colwyn Bay, who, as was common practice back then, registered the car in their own name on the 5th May 1970, and just two days later on the 7th sold the car to a Mr. Terence Owen who owned a TV shop across the road from the Braid Bros. showroom. On the 2nd August 1972, the car was sold to a Mr. Peter Owen, no relation. Mr. Owen moved house and therefore stands as the third and fourth entry on the Green Logbook. On the 12th September 1973, a Mr. Arthur Turner of Chorley, bought the car and he, in turn, passed it on to a Miss Caroline Heaney of Preston, Lancashire on the 12th September 1976. Miss Heaney transferred the E-Type to Mr. Graeme Noonan who resided at the same address on the 1st January 1979. A Mr. John Kelsall of Sale, Greater Manchester bought the car on the 23rd June 1981 and undertook a program of extensive restoration works lasting until 4th March 2002 when he sold the car to Mr. David Piggott of Stoke-on-Trent, who bought it as a retirement gift to himself. It is thanks to Mr. Piggott, our vendor’s cousin, that this history file is so detailed.

At 33,192 miles the car was fitted with a new speedometer, currently reading 40,418, and therefore the total mileage so far is 73,610. The car was treated to a stainless steel exhaust system and the rear suspension (IRS) was rebuilt in early 2013 followed by an engine rebuild in early 2014, and this consignor has witnessed the car’s steady oil pressure. Recent new parts fitted include a set of wire wheels and tyres. In 2015 the cylinder head was converted to run on lead-free petrol and the car is kept in a dehumidified garage. The local mechanic who has maintained and serviced the car over the years has checked and confirmed that the engine number matches that of the Heritage Certificate, although at the time of writing the gearbox numbers have not been verified. Our vendor, who is only selling due to his advancing years, wishes to stress that the car is in a good usable condition but far from Concours. Barney the Welsh Border Terrier often accompanies our vendor and his wife to local classic car shows, sitting on his own cushion in between them. We haven’t told Barney that the car is for sale yet. To this consignor’s eye, there are a few dings to the bodywork, no outward signs of rust and the seats show forty-six years of patina. The Britax sunroof is in good condition, closing and opening smoothly, and the engine has a tapping noise at low revs which may be down to a timing chain issue although we cannot confirm this.

1980 ASTON MARTIN V8 SERIES IV

Aston Martin’s customers had been clamouring for an eight-cylinder car for years, so eventually, the design team at Newport Pagnell succumbed to pressure from the Marketing Department and a larger two-door saloon for V8 applications was on the drawing board. However, in 1967 when the DBS first saw the light of day, the V8 engine was nowhere near ready so the new car was put into production with the straight-six Vantage engine from the DB6. Two years later, Tadek Marek’s V8 was production ready and Aston released the DBS V8. With the demise of the straight-six Vantage in 1973, the DBS V8, now restyled and called simply the Aston Martin V8, became the company’s mainstream car for nearly two decades. It took a wellearned retirement in favour of the Virage in 1989. Supplied new by James Edwards Ltd of Chester to its first owner, a Mr A.F. Piper from Beaconsfield, this Oscar India V8, chassis #12233, originally left the factory in Storm Red and was fitted with options that included air-conditioning, electric mirrors and ultra-rare cruise control. The early service history of this car is superbly documented with the original service book & continuation service book logging the services and mileage.

Upon purchase of the car, the previous owner to our vendor set about returning ‘NBF 599V’ to its best with a full body, interior and mechanical restoration in mind. The car was professionally repainted by L&L Bodyworks of Stoke-on-Trent at a cost of £8,000 and is now finished in fabulous Cumberland Grey, with an expensive Cream leather interior retrim by experts AutoTrim of Cradley Heath. The final re-assembly was entrusted to SJB Classics of Stoke-on-Trent, details of which are fully documented in the history file at length. Sitting on GKN alloys, there is nothing left to do other than turn the key and fire the burbling V8 into action. Supplied with a UK V5c and an MoT until 17th November 2016, this British muscle car needs no further expenditure, and with its DB predecessors commanding challenging amounts, these V8s are now getting the attention they’ve so richly deserved for many years.

The history file includes many invoices during the 90s from Aston Service in Dorset for parts, labour and service work on the car with bills totalling more than £5,000 over a 3 year period. It’s believed that in the early 2000s the front and rear suspension, brakes, differentials and driveshafts were all rebuilt, along with work on the sills and the underside of the car.

1979 FERRARI 308 GT4

Introduced at the 1973 Paris Motor Show, the Dino 308 GT4 was a significant departure for Ferrari in several ways. It was the first production car from Modena to feature a mid-engined V8, a layout that would become common to their core range for decades to come, along with the first production model to feature Bertone styling rather than Pininfarina bodywork. The styling was controversial at the time, with some journalists comparing it to the Bertone-designed Lancia Stratos and Lamborghini Urraco. The chassis was based on the Dino 246 but was stretched to make space for a 2+2 configuration. The 3.0-litre V8 was integrally joined with the gearbox and had an alloy block and heads with dual overhead camshafts fed through 4 Weber 40 DCNF carburettors.

1953 ALFA ROMEO 1900 SPECIALÉ BY ATL

In 1950, Alfa Romeo introduced their latest Saloon at the Paris Motor Show. Available initially with two or four doors it was the first Alfa assembled totally on a production line and was fitted with their new 1,884 cc, 90 bhp 4-cylinder twin cam engine. Designed by Orazio Satta, and produced from1950 to 1959, the car was simple, yet quick and sporty. In common with everything else in Italy on two or four wheels, the 1900 was raced and had great success in the Targa Florio, Stella Alpina, and other competitions. 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. This unique Alfa Romeo powered sports coupé, we belive however cannot confirm that it was built by ATL ( Autotecnica del Lario) in the city of Lecco in Lombardy in the mid-sixties/early seventies.

with boxed-in sections to which all of the mechanical ancillaries are attached. The voluptuous bodywork is hand formed in 12/10 gauge aluminum and is suspended over a steel birdcage like the patented Touring Superleggera method on the Maserati 3500GT or Aston Martin DB Series. The suspension is independent on all four wheels with coil spring shock absorbers, together with front disc and rear drum brakes and lovely period wire wheels. The engine is Alfa Romeo’s classic four-cylinder 1900 twin-camshaft unit derived from the 6C, and these are superb compact engines that have plenty of kick. This operatic engine coupled with the lightweight build of this car makes for an undeniably rapid sports car and with its well spaced 5-speed gearbox and ballerina-like sense of poise, it’s a delight on twisty Targa Florio style roads. Reminiscent of the iconic coachbuilt GT sports coupés of the 50s and 60s, the stunningly executed lines of this car are every bit as good as anything created by Alfa Romeo at the time. This is a truly unmissable opportunity to acquire a unique car that is a celebration of the essence of Italian creativity in metal. Offered at a realistic estimate when you consider the cost of more mass-produced contemporary aluminum replicas and coachbuilt cars of the era, this example is an eminently affordable work of art.

This stunning car looks to have been developed largely along the lines of the Alfa Romeo 2000 Sportiva Prototype built by Alfa Romeo in 1954, with styling cues from other notable Italian 50’s & 60’s Grand Touring cars. The chassis consists of varying diameter steel tubing

The car became widely known and iconic for its appearance and was modified as a time machine in the’Back to the Future’ film trilogy.

Having myself owned several very low mileage cars and inspected many more, I have carefully inspected and driven this car and I strongly believe that the indicated mileage of 3,220 is correct. This is backed up by all sorts of physical evidence eg. the condition of the switches, door seals, bodywork, chassis etc. The car has suffered some (mostly) sun damage during storage, which the current owner is sympathetically improving. It offers considerable further potential to become a real ‘low mileage show car’.” We are delighted to be able to offer such an extraordinary car that is gaining momentum in the collector’s car market on both sides of the Atlantic, and is offered to auction with an MOT until March 2017.

Respected expert, joint author of “DeLorean Celebrating the Impossible” and the historian of the DeLorean Owners Club UK, Chris Parnham has this to say on the car:

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 1950’s 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. Production of the 512TR commenced in 1991 with deliveries to customers in 1992 and was effectively a re-engineered Testarossa, although 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. This particular 512 TR has most recently been the property of successful English entrepreneur Peter De Savary, whose business accolades include shipping, property - famously at Land’s End and John O’Groats, yacht building and former Chairman of Millwall Football Club. It is an original UK, right-hand drive, 512 TR was supplied new by Maranello Sales Ltd Egham, to its first owner, a Mr D. Darsa of Kingston-Upon-Thames on 27.1.94 and finished in Chiaro Blue with a fine looking Crema leather interior. The car has had 3 former keepers, although 2 of them were a husband and wife who each appear on the log book. The service and maintenance records are well detailed and the service book shows a plethora of stamps from both the supplying dealer and other specialists:

1942 WILLYS JEEP WWII

One of the possible origins of the word ‘Jeep’ was from the Popeye cartoon series where ‘Eugene the Jeep’ was his jungle pet, small and able to solve impossible problems. At the time, as war raged in Europe, the earliest Jeeps formed a lasting impression on the American soldier which may have helped the adoption of the affectionate term Jeep. However, more likely is the fact that the vehicles designation was ‘GP’ and when said quickly and frequently GP quickly becomes ‘Geep’. Even more impressive was the time taken from concept to production of a design that has stood the test of time and become an unlikely motoring icon. From tenders being sent out, to a production run commencing, took less than two hundred days. Considering how the Jeep was conceived and its role in warfare, it is remarkable that some of the world’s finest classic car collections seem to always include a Willys or Ford WWII Jeep making the example offered here a candidate for serious consideration should one of these yardstick cars have so far eluded you.

Registration: TBA Chassis Number: 10465 Engine Number: TBA Estimate (£): 12,000 - 15,000

The example offered here was imported from Italy in 2015, and that country’s dry climate probably explains how it has survived in such remarkably solid original form. This is not a restored Jeep made up of remanufactured parts and panels, but a perfect candidate for either a restoration or to be preserved and enjoyed as is. In the past, it appears that it’s been subject to various interpretations of how to keep a WWII vehicle running, perhaps explained by its rural Italian past, but it starts with ease and ticks over reliably commensurate with a wartime engine. It retains many genuine mid-1942 production items including axles, gearbox and of course a remarkably well-preserved chassis and tub. The Bakelite steering wheel is still present together with its postMarch 1942 glove box. It does not require an MoT and has an allocated NOVA number for pending registration in the UK. Still a favorite with us and ‘de rigueur’ for Goodwood.

1972 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES III V12 ROADSTER

Jaguar introduced the E-Type in March 1961 to worldwide acclaim. Early forays into motor sport were rewarded in May of that year when Graham Hill celebrated the type’s first win at Oulton Park. Success on the track was reflected on the road and was to continue right up to 1974 with over 70,000 E-Types eventually produced in Coventry. From 1961, the E-Type evolved and improved throughout its lifecycle from the original Series 1 Coupés and Roadsters, through the Series 2 cars of the late 1960s until finally the Series 3 arrived in late 1971, this 5.3 V12 being only available as a convertible or a ‘2+2’. Approximately 7,990 Series 3 convertibles were sold worldwide before production ceased. Manufactured on 15th November 1972, this original UK right-hand drive E-Type Series III V12 roadster was delivered to a Mr R. E. Wray by Botswood of Ipswich, Suffolk, bearing registration ‘URT 264L’. Two owners before our vendor, the car was exported from the UK to Europe, and the then custodian owned it for 17 years before passing the baton onto the next owner who purchased the car in 2005. A year later, it was decided that the roof needed replacing, so a new hood was sourced and fitted. In 2007, the car was stripped back to bare metal, any necessary body repairs were undertaken, and the whole car was fully resprayed. After a number of years of routine maintenance and service work, it was time to have the heart of this ‘big cat’ examined, and so at the beginning of 2015 the engine was taken out and dismantled, ready for a full inspection and rebuild. Work included:

This work totalled more than 25,000 Euros and there are photographs accompanying the history file, as a well as a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Since purchasing the car, our vendor has now had it UK registered and it now wears the registration ‘8668 BY’ and a MoT certificate gained. The interior has been fully re-trimmed in black leather, a new exhaust fitted and other routine service work carried out to ensure this lovely V12 E-type looks even better. For many years the Series 3 lagged behind its older siblings in terms of desirability but no more, and the fruits of many hours of labour can be enjoyed with this E-Type Series III.

1992 PORSCHE 968 CLUB SPORT CS

The Porsche 968 was introduced to the world back in 1991 to excellent reviews. The standard 968 Coupé came with a 3-litre, 4-cylinder engine producing 225lb ft of torque and 240bhp. In 1992 Porsche set their sights on creating a car tailored more for the driving enthusiast and, in particular, one that would excel on track. In late 1992, the 968 Club Sport ‘CS’ was born. Mechanically almost identical to the standard coupé, sharing the same engine and 6-speed gearbox, the CS was a stripped-down, no-nonsense track weapon that saw dramatic improvements to the handling and overall performance. This was achieved by removing all luxury-orientated equipment from the options list, for example, less sound deadening material was used and the electric windows were replaced with hand wound units. In addition, Porsche installed manually adjustable lightweight Recaro racing seats rather than the standard power-operated leather buckets. A revised suspension system, optimized and lowered by 20mm, with 17-inch wheels were also to be found. With the no-frills approach, less weight, and optimised suspension, Porsche could focus media attention on the Club Sport’s fast road and track abilities. The 968 Club Sport achieved a ‘Performance Car Of The Year’ award in 1993 from Performance Car magazine in the UK. In total, just 1,923 units were produced, making the Club Sport a very rare limited edition Porsche. This original 968 Club Sport was one of the very first examples off the production line. According to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this ‘CS’ was completed on 5th November 1992 and sold new by Porsche Germany in left--hand drive. In fact, the vendor understands that it was actually used in the publicity brochures for the model. Whilst this cannot be confirmed, the earliest known CS model was built on 19th October 1992, just 17 days after this example.

Finished in Maritime Blue with a black interior, the car was ordered with the factory options of stronger battery, limited slip differential with 40% lock, Blaupunkt radio, reduced radio prep and air conditioning. It also features a roll cage, which is an after-market unit, and factory sports seats. One of the most impressive aspects of this 968 Club Sport is the two large history folders containing bills, previous MoT certificates, German registration documents and a copy of the original sales brochure. There is no doubt, that this car has been cherished by every one of its owners. There are 20 stamps in the original service book, ranging from main agents in both Germany and the UK to specialists such as PARR in Sussex. An engine rebuild was completed by PARR in 2008 and the vendor has just had a cambelt service carried out. Having covered a mighty 234,289 kms (145,000 miles) from new, the condition of this vehicle would suggest it has covered half of that mileage. We urge potential purchasers to see this car in the flesh, have it inspected by a specialist and reserve judgement until physically seen. The paintwork retains a good shine and is in good condition, the shut lines are presentable, the interior is in great order and the engine bay is beautifully clean with no obvious signs of accident damage. The car also drives extremely well and will be driven to the auction by the vendor. We can think of no greater track-day companion than this stunningly prepared and well-cosseted 968 CS. A very early example of a model that is considered by many to be a sleeping giant within the collector community. We tip the 968 Club Sport for great things in the future, as enthusiasts realize how truly fantastic they are to drive.

By the beginning of the Seventies every ‘supercar’ manufacturer needed a mid-engine design, and Maserati was no exception, so they employed the services of ‘Designer of the Decade’, Giorgetto Giugiaro. His eloquent pen was put to good use and the resultant Bora, and subsequent Merak were launched to much international acclaim. By 1975 Maserati had shrugged off the restraints of ownership by Citroën and were revitalised with De Tomaso as a partner. Fortunately for the Merak, this would see an increase in power from the three litre Maserati unit and further weight saving - the 220bhp Merak SS was the ultimate evolution - meant that the Merak could now fulfill its design brief to provide an alternative to the Lamborghini Urraco and the Ferrari 308/ GT4. Like the Bora, the Merak was comfortable and refined and really only differed by engine size and the treatment to the engine cover. The 2+2 design did offer occasional seating in the rear. When production ceased nearly a thousand Merak SS had been delivered.

Finished in the traditional colour combination of red with cream leather interior, the paintwork is generally bright but there is some evidence of shrinkage, some scratches to the finish and room for improvement. The car could be used in its current aesthetic condition or restored to a high standard, depending on the requirements of the buyer. The Merak SS is a rare car and they are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Supplied with its original paperwork from South Africa, UK V5C, current MoT, all taxes and duties have been paid on this vehicle. A useable Merak that would benefit from some mechanical fettling and aesthetic improvements. Prospective purchasers are welcome to inspect this Maserati prior to the auction and should contact the office for further details.

This Maserati Merak SS has recently been imported from the dry climate of Johannesburg, South Africa. The car is now UK registered, has passed its MoT with no advisories, and has recently been serviced complete with a fluid change and new battery.

1980 PORSCHE 911 SC TARGA

The 911SC with 204bhp was produced from August 1980 to July 1983 and arguably represents the sweet spot of 911 production. Up to this point, the engines were putting out 180bhp and lacking in raw power and the next 911 in the series, the Carrera, had lost that rigid race car feel, a conscious move by Porsche to compete with other more comfortable sports cars. The 911SC therefore, is the most pure and compelling 911 to own, providing great feedback to the driver and engendering real excitement with a feeling of security. Earlier cars had developed a reputation for ‘lift-off’ oversteer, however, these 911SCs are on the contrary quite easy to drive on the limit and hugely enjoyable. You can search for and find the cars balance, understand what it wants to do next and throttle back in time if you push too hard.

This is a true driver’s car that should prove reliable, and will provide many more thousands of miles of Porsche motoring, comfortable in the knowledge that your investment has been future-proofed.

Offered in beautiful Chiffon White with the desirable Targa roof, this sports car is an original right-hand drive car with an enviable history that has been subject to around £40,000 in restorative works. Conducted by respected specialist classic car restorers, Cardock Classics of Dublin, our 911SC has been the subject of a complete bare metal re-spray. In the process, all of the body trims, window seals, and light lenses were replaced. It further benefits from having re-furbished Fuchs alloys, new carpets, and a refurbished steering wheel. The Targa top has also been completely recommissioned and married with new latches for a tight seal. The tea-tray spoiler has been removed as it gives the car a purer look, however, it is included in the sale should a future custodian wish to replace it. Prior to refurbishment, the car had been known to Cardock Classics since 2001.

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. Recognizing 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.) Impressively the time taken from conception and tenders being sent out, to the production lines starting to roll, was less than two hundred days, amazing for a vehicle that has stood the test of time and become an unlikely motoring icon. This ability to get things done quickly and well was the deciding factor in America being asked to produce military hardware in vast numbers and build hundreds of ships, arguably influencing the outcome of the Second World War.

Considering the manner in which the Jeep was conceived and its role in warfare, it’s remarkable that most of the finest classic car collections will include a Willys or Ford WWII Jeep, making the restored example offered here a candidate for serious consideration should one of these yardstick cars have, so far, eluded you. This excellent and rare, Ford built, GPW Jeep was imported into the UK in 2012 having been fastidiously restored by the President of the Ford GPW Owners Club in the USA and is a consummate piece of military history. A USB drive, included with the cars history file, documents the restoration. Every nut and bolt received attention and the detail is fantastic, even down to the period tools and heavy-duty tow rope attached to the vehicle. Every rural car show in the country now has a section for Military Vehicles, and with WW2 re-enactments and the prestigious classic car meetings all clamouring for 1940’s Jeeps, this stunningly well-restored example could keep you busy for the rest of the Summer.

As the war progressed Willys-Overland produced over 300,000 Jeeps and the Ford Motor Co. was drafted in to help boost production and contributed over 250,000 units. Ford assembled Jeeps were recognizable by their pressed steel grilles as opposed to the Willys’ slat style grille.

1969 AUSTIN MINI COOPER MKII

Alec Issigonis’ friend John Cooper, owner of the Cooper Car Company and designer and builder of Formula 1 and Sports Cars, saw the potential of the Mini for competition. Issigonis was initially reluctant to see the Mini as a performance car, but after John Cooper appealed to BMC management, the two men collaborated to create the Mini Cooper, and the Austin and Morris Mini Coopers debuted simultaneously in 1961. Some six years later, the Cooper MkIIs appeared and were more refined without diluting the out and out fun of these amazing little cars. The overall production figures of the Mk II were only just behind the earlier cars.

The original chassis plate is present in the history file and its original 998cc engine is still in situ. Launched in 1967, the Mk II Coopers are regarded by many, in hindsight, as the most attractive of the Mini Cooper evolution with the squared rear lights, larger rear window, and new grille, but still retaining the sliding windows and one or two early features so characteristic of the original Mini. The look is further enhanced with the slightly wider vented steel rims.

Offered here is a beautifully restored Austin Mini Cooper MkII finished in the classic combination of Tartan Red with a Black roof and interior trim. The registration document reveals that it has had only three previous owners and still carries its original Reading

1996 MERCEDES-BENZ SL70 AMG

Launched in 1989, the R129-series continued the SL dynasty from Mercedes-Benz, a ‘Sport Lightweight’ family which began in 1954 with the legendary 300SL Roadster and ‘Gullwing’, and has survived into its 6th generation with the current R231-series. Traditionally the most sporting model of the MB line-up, the SL was the preserve of the rich and famous when new and many F1 drivers used them as day-to-day cars in the early nineties, Ayrton Senna included. From the hypnotic dance of the electric hood mechanism to the roll bar that automatically flipped up if the car sensed an accident, the SL oozed sophistication with all the latest technology such as adaptive suspension with active damping, airbags, traction control, air con and a superb new five-link rear suspension all as standard. A variety of engine sizes were available with SLs over the years, particularly from AMG, and undoubtedly the largest was the rare SL73 from 1995 (and briefly again in ‘98). However, the rarest of the lot we believe, was the 7.0 litre, 500bhp SL70 AMG This impressive 1996, Mercedes-Benz SL70 AMG 7.0 litre V12 (registration number ‘P452 CCT’) has covered a mere 55,123 kms which is supported by a comprehensive ‘YANASE’ Mercedes-Benz AMG Main dealer service history.

AMG records show this car as being engine number 17 with a displacement of 7200cc. Further AMG enhancements include the fitting of a sports exhaust, AMG 18 inch wheels, an AMG wood veneer set on the black interior, and the inevitable AMG badging inside and out. This very rare car is offered with all its books and manuals (including the original leather bound AMG wallet). Described as a fabulously usable car with ballistic performance, and the polite road manners of a small saloon. This gleaming black SL70 has serious presence and, dare we say it, looks more than a little menacing, and until the United States Air Force decide to dispose of some second-hand ordnance, this is as close as you are likely to get to your own ‘Stealth Bomber’.

The successor to the successful Land Rover Series l was, unsurprisingly the Series ll, which remained in production from 1958 to 1961. It was available with 88” and 109” in wheelbases, normally referred to as the ‘SWB’ and ‘LWB’. This was the first Land Rover to receive the attention of Rover’s styling department - Chief Stylist David Bache produced the familiar ‘barrel side’ waistline to cover the vehicle’s wider track and the improved design of the truck cab variant, introducing the curved side windows and rounded roof still used on current Land Rovers. The Land Rover was the product of continuous evolution and refinement throughout the fifties and sixties with improvements in every area including stability and a tighter turning circle. It was a period in which Land Rover took the lead in the emerging market for fourwheel drive vehicles. As a tough, reliable mobility platform, countless organisations came to depend on Land Rover vehicles to get personnel and equipment into the most challenging situations...and then safely out again.

The Land Rover offered here is a Series II, 109’’ Station Wagon first registered on the 31st March 1959. It is Chassis number #30 (161900030) - and is believed to be the 2nd oldest Series ll 109’’ on the Land Rover Register. Having slumbered in a barn for approximately twenty years, it retains its original drivetrain, including the correct 2286cc engine, ‘Elephant Hide’ interior and original Safari Roof. The chassis and bulkhead are said to be in good order. After some recommissioning, it runs and drives, but will require some additional fettling to make 100% road-ready. Many original features remain making this early, and rarely found complete, Series ll 109’’, a real find. It’s no surprise that these unsung workhorses should eventually come of age and now, with countless clubs and organisations established to preserve and service them, prices are beginning to rise. Original and unmolested examples, especially with early chassis numbers, are the ones to own. This unassuming classic vehicle is just right for preservation or as the basis for a complete restoration.

The Series ll started its production run in April 1958 but customers wanting a 109’’ Station Wagon had to wait for until September 1958 to purchase one. As a carry-over feature from the later Series l examples, Series ll Station Wagons also came fitted with a ‘Safari Roof’. This ingenious design consisted of a second roof skin fitted on top of the vehicle. This kept the interior cool in hot weather and reduced condensation in cold weather.

Driving for Team Lotus and resident on the Isle of Man at the time, the future Formula One and Indycar World Series Champion appears to have sold the Coupé following his move to Williams Grand Prix. The Audi’s turn of speed and sure-footed handling made it a popular choice with members of the underworld in period, (hence the reason no doubt that DCI Gene Hunt was allocated one in the hit TV series ‘Ashes to Ashes’) and there used to be a ready market for ‘discounted spares’. Understood to have had just five former keepers since being UK road registered as ‘1 DWP’ on 4th February 1985 (its current number plate ‘A154 DWP’ was assigned on 17th June 1993), accompanying paperwork shows that the Quattro was subject to an insurance total loss payment during April 1995 due to ‘theft of parts from the vehicle’. The components in question are presumed to have been ancillaries because today the four-seater retains its original factory-fitted engine block (number WR005159). Being built on 31st March 1984, chassis WAUZZZ85ZEA900940 also features the revised, lowered suspension (down by 20mm all round) and wider eight-inch wheels that had been phased-in earlier that month. Off the road for eight years prior to entering the previous owner’s custody in November 2011, the Quattro was subsequently treated to an extensive restoration. The last registered owner was the proprietor of a manufacturer-approved bodyshop and fabricated several repair

pieces himself, as well as sourcing two new front wings, fussing over panel fit for hours and keeping the use of filler to a minimum. Thoroughly overhauled, the 2144cc five-cylinder powerplant benefited from a reground crankshaft, Dialynx exhaust manifold, re-cored radiator, fresh clutch / flywheel, refurbished intercooler, Milltek Sport stainless steel exhaust system and various new internals. The suspension and running gear were rejuvenated too with replacement bearings, bushings and ball joints as deemed necessary. It is reported that £15,000 was spent on parts alone from the likes of Deutscheparts, Quattro Corner, and TPS. The original interior fabric had worn surprisingly well. Carefully cleaned, it belies the 116,000 miles shown on the car’s odometer. Entrusted to a specialist, the digital dashboard was returned to full working order. Aside from the minor engine modifications, the Audi gained a later (but still ur-type) 20v steering wheel and rides on 8 x 15J R8 Ronal rims. Some 4,000 miles after the project was completed, ‘A154 DWP’ remains highly presentable having received a degree of restoration that would not have been financially viable had the current owner factored-in his own labour costs. Starting readily upon inspection and looking every inch the 1980’s icon that it is, this very nicely restored Quattro is offered for sale with a copy Isle of Man registration document in Nigel Mansell’s name, old Isle of Man tax disc (also in Mr Mansell’s name), V5C Registration Document, current MoT certificate and a copy of Audi Driver magazine (January 2016 issue) on which it graced the front cover.

GTD Supercars were the best known and most respected builders of GT40 Replicas in the country in the late Nineties and had the necessary facilities and talented engineers to make an excellent job of it. They had started out originally as agents for the KVA GT40 Replica but it wasn’t long before they had redesigned the front and rear of the KVA chassis and were selling the cars as GTDs. As is often the way with bright young engineers, they weren’t happy until they were building the whole car to their own standards and many of these still take pride of place at GT40 events today. This GTD 40 was ordered as a specific project by the current owner and hand built to the highest specifications. The project was commenced in 1996 and the car was assembled under the direct supervision of Ray Christopher, managing director of the company and designer of the GTD 40. The original plan was to build the car around a full-race engine and the rest of the specification reflected that, with proper GT 40 seats, dashboard and trim with authentic rims and asymmetric ‘P-Zero’ tyres. Race suspension as featured in the original GT 40 was fitted, twin petrol tanks with separate fillers are situated in the door sills of the car and the engine bay features twin petrol pumps. The cockpit has two level air-conditioning and the vehicle is fitted with uprated cooling fans to counteract engine heating. More recently, the braking system has been uprated and a strengthened Renault gearbox added to handle the higher levels of torque produced by the Windsor 351 tuned engine. Work was carried out by Southern GT who now hold the license to service GTD 40 cars and full details of the build and subsequent services along with invoices and the photographic record of the car’s construction are available.

The engine itself is a highly tuned and modified Windsor 351, although normally GTD 40 cars are fitted with a stock 302 cu in (4.94 litres) V8 Ford engine. This highly tuned Windsor 351 engine was commissioned in the early 90s for a race car project which was not completed. The engine was built and assembled by Charles Deberry, renowned engine tuner and engineer in Connecticut, USA. Deberry specialised in preparing engines for the NASCAR series with engines up to 400 cu in (6.4 litres). The engine block (code number 371/38182585) is a Windsor 351, stroked and bored to 390 cu in., heat treated and normalised, machined and blueprinted and finally x-rayed. The pistons are TRW forged 11.5 to 1 compression under high-performance hemispherical custom Allan Root heads. The valves are Ford Motor Sport stainless steel waisted 1.95 inlet, 1.65 exhaust while the valve springs are Barnes dual. The retainers are Isky chrome moly and the collets and keepers are from Manley Competition. The crankshaft is Ford Custom, nitrided, micro polished and filleted and the flywheel is a custom competition steel component. Camshafts are fully balanced competition cams, 290° duration, and there is a separate baffled oil sump. Rotating and reciprocating masses have all been balanced. The engine was then run on a Dyno indicating around 480 bhp, and then imported to the UK.

This GTD 40 has been commissioned and owned by the current vendor for almost 20 years, since its completion in 1996 and represents a rare opportunity to acquire a factory car built to race industry standards and overseen directly by Ray Christopher. The car is massively quick as a track-day car, remains sufficiently civilised to use comfortably on the road and in Gunmetal Grey/Silver, presents superbly.

1989 PEUGEOT 205 1.9 GTI

PEUGEOT 205 1.9 GTI, Registration No. F425 MFJ was ordered in Silver Metallic paint at a price of £10,001.93 and was delivered new, to its one and only owner, on 8th May 1989 by Blacklers of Torquay. It had been purchased with the intention of it being used on a regular basis, however, shortly after purchase, his employer provided the vendor with a new vehicle every 4 years under a contract hire scheme and, as a result, the Peugeot became a car that was only used very occasionally during the summer months. In October 1993 the vehicle was fitted with a Cobra NU1 security alarm and, in May 2003, with a stainless steel exhaust to replicate the original system, thereby keeping the vehicle as original as possible. The vehicle was laid up after June 2004 until February 2012. During this storage period, it was regularly started and the engine left to run, before being moved from its garage position to the end of the drive to ensure that there would be no problem with the engine or transmission. However, there was an exception when it was not started up for a period of two years prior to February 2012. Rather than risking any damage to the engine, it was trailered to a garage to be recommissioned. This included the replacement of spark plugs, drainage of the fuel tank, and the normal precautions taken when starting a dormant engine. Having only covered a mere 7,986 miles from new, the engine still performs exactly as Peugeot intended, and the gearbox is precise and smooth. This car really is in exceptional condition. The Silver Metallic paintwork beautifully reflects the light and perfectly complements the Red piping trim and two-tone Grey cloth seats and red carpets. The paintwork is original and is superb. The red piping of the GTI, which adorns the

black bumpers and waistline moulding around the vehicle, still retains its deep colour and is free from damage, scratches or scuffs, fits exactly as it should and is in super condition. The lights remain clear and are free from any cracks or moisture. In the interior, the two-tone half leather seats are excellent, as is the leather, and the two-tone grey cloth down the centres. The red stitching is completely intact and tight as the day it was new. This amazing condition reflects the vehicle’s mileage and the fact that the front seats were covered from new and the rear seats were unused. The original Philips radio/cassette is still present and in perfect working order. The cigarette lighter and ash tray are unused. The steering wheel and dashboard are unmarked and the instrument panel is free of any defects in appearance or warning lights. The red carpet has been protected from new by a set of stylish black carpet mats, with distinctive red piping, which were an official Peugeot 205 GTI accessory. The door trims are both unmarked, including the red carpeting to their lower edges. The seat belts are also in superb order, as is the boot compartment. The alloy wheels are original and in first class condition with no evidence of any kerbing to the rims and are fitted with Peugeot supplied wheel locks. The tyres are Pirelli P600, as fitted from new, and are now showing some age deterioration and will require replacing. They have been left on the vehicle as further evidence as to the authenticity of the mileage.

Introduced to the public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin’s first six-cylinder model since production of the DB6 Mk.II ended in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen in its design. Arguably one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted new customers worldwide with its traditional layout, curvaceous two door coupé body, and powerful six-cylinder engine. This is a lovely UK RHD, 5-speed manual example of the early DB7 i6 model. Much cherished by its three former keepers including the last owner since 2013, who lovingly named her ‘Annie’. This car was originally sold to Northern Ireland and then moved to Yorkshire in 1999 where it has remained for 15 years. During this time, we are informed that the car only spent two nights outside during a tour of Scotland. The desirable specification includes Brecon Black paintwork, Charcoal and Smoke leather interior, leather dash with walnut finish, steering wheel adjustment, alpine radio with a 6-disc CD Changer, air conditioning and electric front seats.

1931 MATHIS PY 7CV

Originally, Émile Mathis was a leading car dealer in Strasbourg, Alsace, handling Fiat, De Dietrich and Panhard-Levassor, among other makes from his Auto-Mathis-Palace. Two models were designed for him by the young Ettore Bugatti, and they were marketed under the brand Hermes (1904–1905). Current for 1905-06, it was built in 28, 40, and 98 hp forms, all being Mercedes-like cars with chain drives. Designer and racing driver, Dragutin Esser, then created two cars of 2025 cc and 2253 cc which were built under license from Stoewer. The first “true” Mathis model (8/20 PS) was put on the market in 1910, however, the first real success came just before World War I with two smaller models: ‘Babylette’ had a 1.1 L engine and ‘Baby’ had a 1.3 L engine. There was also a Mathis-Knight model. During World War I, Mathis was sent by the German government (Alsace was then part of Germany) to Switzerland to buy tyres and after one of these trips he went to France and remained there. After the war, Alsace became part of France and he was able to return to his factory. After the war, the firm’s production increased quickly and soon became No.4 in France making more than 20,000 cars in 1927 with Citroën being the main competition The SB model of 1921 was followed by a six-cylinder model (1188 cc) in 1923 and an eight-cylinder in 1925. From 1927, Mathis followed a one-model policy. MY has side-valve four-cylinder engine (1.2 L). Not surprisingly, the next year saw the ‘Emysix’, with a 2288 cc six-cylinder.

form of a Roadster and Cabriolet, along with standard and luxury Coupés and Saloons. This rare Mathis PY 7cv was discovered by our vendor in 2014, laid up in its homeland France where it has been for the entirety of its life. It was one of three vehicles that he purchased from an extended private collection from a Chateau in Northern France. We are told it has been in single ownership from new and the story of this Mathis is a particularly interesting one as it was hidden from the Germans during the Second World War and has been sat on blocks ever since. This Mathis appears to be very authentic and it’s extremely rare to find in such preserved condition. On initial inspection, it appears to have no substantial rust with the only deterioration being age related. There does not appear to be any history with the car other than a wonderful period photograph showing it in its former glory. A very good basis for a rewarding restoration, this Mathis has been preserved impressively throughout its storage period - and the 74-year-old dust will come with it.

The 7hp engine type “PYC” is differentiated by its bore, increased to 69.85mm and the displacement of up to 1226cc, a single disc working dry clutch and three-speed gearbox. The “PY” has a wheelbase of 2.4m and width of 1.2m. Hydraulic brakes were optional and the wheels are shod with 10x48 or 11x45 tires. Different bodies were available in the

The Healey 3000, or “Big Healey” as it was known, was produced between 1959 and 1967. Highly successful on both road and track it was to be the final development of the model and a very worthy successor to the 100-6. Three versions were produced, each an improved evolution known as BNI, II, and III. The final version, BN III, lasted from 1963 until production ended and was the most powerful and luxurious version offering a 150 bhp straight 6 engine and specification including a walnut dashboard, servo-brakes, a new exhaust system and twin SU carburettors.

A folder of bills and receipts since 2010 can be found in the history file and a large service and inspection was carried out in December 2014, which included ‘Waxoyling’ the underside of the car. The Heritage Certificate confirms the body, engine and chassis numbers as matching and we welcome prospective buyers to contact the office for further details or to arrange an inspection. Offered at a most realistic level today, this Healey has been the subject of significant investment in recent years and would make a fine touring companion.

This 1966 Austin Healey 3000 MkIII BJ8 was first registered on 29th May 1966 and was supplied new to the United States. The car was repatriated to the UK in July 2004 at 74,537 miles and subsequently converted to right-hand drive in 2010 following a ground-up restoration by Rugby Classic Motor Garages. The current owner bought the car from them and has spent lots of money to ensure it has been kept in top condition. The restoration included a number of sensible upgrades and amongst them were positive earth electronic ignition, high torque starter with dynamo, brake upgrades, Kenlowe fan, aluminium radiator, engine oil cooler, aluminium petrol tank and stainless steel exhaust system that sounds fantastic. Finished in its original colour combination of British Racing Green with black trim, hood and tonneau cover, the car has covered just under 4,000 fine-weather miles since restoration and is described by the owner as: “fast, reliable, in excellent running condition with overdrive on 3rd and 4th gears.”

1974 FORD ESCORT RS2000 MK I

The Escort RS2000 was the last car to be introduced to Ford’s ‘Advanced Vehicle’ range in June of 1973, and dovetailed nicely with its performance almost comparable to the more complex RS1600, but with the reliability and ease of maintenance of the Mexico. The car used the same Type 49 bodyshell as the Mexico and RS1600, however there was a new engine in use at Ford, the 2-litre overhead cam, 100bhp, ‘Pinto’ design, which seemed, on paper, ideal for the RS. Fords then had the major problem of persuading the new bulky Pinto engine to fit into the engine bay, which was something it had never been designed to do. The only way of achieving this was by discarding the engine driven cooling fan and replacing it with a thermostatically controlled Kenlowe unit. The most appropriate gearbox was the German ‘E-box’, which was totally different to the one fitted to the RS1600, and the final drive was 3.54:1. The car was launched in England on 11th October 1973 priced at £1,586. When our vendor, an accomplished rally driver, purchased this RS2000 in December 2009 he intended to turn it into a rally car but found the car was just too good. Registered to the previous keeper, Churchbridge Motor Garage of Telford, since 1978 the car was sold with a selection of old MOTs. This change of heart was mainly influenced by expert restorer Martin Paynter of the well-regarded (Ford) Escort Agency in Pembrokeshire. Having convinced our vendor to put the car back to its original road specification, the Escort Agency undertook an extensive restoration program. The original Type 49 shell was stripped of all mechanical parts, which were either powder coated, zinc plated or chromed where necessary. The engine, gearbox, and differential were all professionally rebuilt using new parts where needed. The shell was etch-primed after sandblasting, and new (Ford) wings fitted after the completion of all body

repairs, at which point painted in two-pack Olympic blue, as original. The car was then treated to some subtle upgrades such as uprated bushes and brake lines. The engine was balanced and fitted with new pistons, crankshaft, and bearings. The head is a polished and ported stage two with a Piper fast road cam and vernier adjustment. New carbs, electronic ignition, and exhaust system completed the package. All the bumpers and brightwork have been replaced and a set of Minilite wheels were fitted. As is common with nut and bolt restorations of this kind, the odometer was zeroed at 25,951 miles. The work was completed in June 2012, flying through its MoT, and such was the quality of the restoration the car was featured in the January edition of ‘Retro Ford’ magazine, a copy of which is included in the sale. The cloth seats are in excellent order, complimented by superb door cards and carpet set. The wiring is neat and tidy all round, and the engine bay is superb, suggesting that the engine rebuild has been carried out to the same high standard as the bodywork. As you can see from the photographs, the underside is absolutely excellent, almost inspirational, and this cracking car could be driven to any car show or owner’s club gathering and would not return home empty handed. Having been used sparingly, with less than 900 miles completed since the restoration, the car resides happily in a “Carcoon”, however, with international rallying commitments, and having to run a working farm, our vendor has reluctantly offered the car for sale. This is a superb, period correct, 1974 RS2000 and is offered for sale with a fresh MoT. We are lucky enough to have two superb RS2000s in our sale today, and there are a couple of us here who would quite like them both!

1989 PORSCHE 911 SUPERSPORT SSE CABRIOLET

The early history of the iconic Porsche 911 is well documented, however, the mid eighties saw the replacement for the successful ‘SC’ model by the new “Carrera”model which was to be built between 1984 and 1989. In 1984 Porsche introduced the M491 option, which was officially called the Supersport, but was commonly known as the ‘Turbo body’. It featured the Turbo wider wheel arches front and rear and the distinctive “Whale Tail”. It also featured the stiffer Turbo suspension and the superior Turbo braking system, as well as the wider Turbo wheels and tyres.

This SSE Supersport Cabriolet (option M491) cost around £10,000 more than a standard 3.2, 911 and offered all the external styling cues of a 911 Turbo without the demanding handling traits of its forced induction sibling. Porsche AG’s records of official Supersport production is sketchy, but according to a well-researched article in the Porsche Post 2010, only eighteen right-hand drive Supersport Cabriolets were made between 1987 and 1989.

1969 MGC GT

Introduced in 1967 and only available for a couple of years, the MGC was a 2912cc, straight-6 version of the MGB. In twin SU carburettor form the engine produced a lusty 145bhp at 5250rpm and when fed through an overdrive gearbox or a three-speed automatic the car was capable of 120mph and 0-60 in just under 10 seconds. The body shell needed considerable revision from its smaller-engined sister, particularly around the engine bay and to the floor pan, but externally the only differences were a distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a ‘teardrop’ for carburettor clearance. It had different brakes from the MGB, 15-inch wheels, a lower geared rack and pinion, and special torsion bar suspension with telescopic dampers. Like the MGB, it was available as a Coupé and Roadster. At its launch, the MGC appeared to have the potential to become a great commercial success offering all the qualities of the muchloved MGB with some significant performance improvements at a very attractive price. This was not to be, however, as a number of unfavourable ‘Road Tests’ in motoring magazines criticising the car’s ‘nose-heavy’ handling sowed seeds of doubt in the minds of potential car buyers. The engine was 25kg too heavy and the need to fit an automatic box for the American market meant that it was mounted too far forward, however, a team of road testers managed to arrive at the optimum tyre pressures that resulted in the car handling perfectly. Sadly nobody told the people producing the Owner’s Manuals and handbooks and the “Manufacturers Recommended Tyre Pressures” were wildly out resulting in the car’s unnecessary reputation for ‘understeer’. The British Leyland Group, owners of MG, didn’t help by dithering, somewhat publicly, over whether the MGC would hurt the sales of the two other six-cylinder sports cars in the range (the GT-6 and the TR6) and then eventually dropping the Abingdon car.

At the Paris Auto Salon in 1972, Ferrari unveiled an all new car to the world. It was a fast, svelte and elegant 2+2 powered by the legendary VI2 engine, and was the most expensive series produced by Ferrari for 17 years. The initial model was the 365 GT4 2+2, which was later followed by the 400 and 412 series, and with manufacture ceasing in 1989, these four seaters enjoyed the longest production run of any Ferrari model. The 365 GT4 2+2 is easily distinguished from its successors by its six rear tail lights, knock-off alloy wheels and lack of a front spoiler and was produced between 1972 and 1976, with production totalling 521 cars, with just 133 in right-hand drive. The bodies were built and fully trimmed at the Pininfarina works in Turin, and then shipped to the Ferrari factory in Maranello for the installation of the mechanical components. Under the bonnet, Ferrari squeezed in a 4.4-litre V12 unit producing 340bhp at 7000rpm resulting in the world’s most potent full four-seater at the time. Despite its 1,450 kilos, the car galloped from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.4 seconds and was capable of a top speed of 155 mph. Having previously sold this right-hand drive, 365 GT4 to a discerning multiple-marque collector in February 2014, we were informed by the Ferrari’s vendor at that time, that its service history is peppered with evidence that significant sums of money have been spent in the past looking after the health of this distinctive car. £19,000 on one occasion, £16,000 on another, and further amounts of £5,000 from time to time, all detailed in its most comprehensive service history which indicates expenditure of an incredible £137,069.20. The bulk of the work was conducted by a classic car specialist who rebuilt the engine and restored the bodywork over three years from 1993 to 1996

and it subsequently came third in its class at the 1996 Ferrari Owners Club Concours with details in the file. The 365’s engine bay is filled to bursting point with that colossal 4.4-litre, V12 engine, complete with its stainless steel exhaust system which is notoriously expensive to replace and merely highlights the fact that no expense has been spared on the upkeep of this car over the years. Under the current owner’s stewardship, additional work has recently been carried out on the exhaust with new manifolds and gaskets, sundry service items, attention to the brakes and an annual service, at an odometer reading of 4,555 miles (we presume the car has gone ‘round the clock’). Works totalling £2,735.00 were carried out in December 2015, at main dealer Lancaster Ferrari of Colchester, and at the time of writing (6th July 2016) the car is back under their care, receiving attention to the brakes which will be completed by the time of the auction. It is the intention to apply for a new MoT certificate prior to the auction. The guide price represents around a third of the car’s restoration costs, making this is a fantastic alternative to a similarly priced, but considerably more common Aston or Maserati, and is a tempting proposition given the past expenditure. Early four-seat Ferraris have recently returned to favour, and the 365 has a certain amount of cachet given its siblings are the famed Daytona and Berlinetta Boxer, which is some family tree.

1946 TRIUMPH ROADSTER 1800

The Triumph Roadster was built by Britain’s Standard Motor Company from 1946 to 1949, and was first available as the Triumph 1800 Roadster (18TR) from 1946 to 1948 and subsequently as the Triumph 2000 Roadster (TRA) from 1948 to 1949. The 1800 Roadster, model number 18TR, was designed in the closing days of World War ll. Triumph had been bought by the Standard Motor Company in 1944, and with all eyes to the future, the managing director of Standard, Sir John Black, wanted a sports car to take on Jaguar. At Black’s insistence it was fitted with a dickey seat, probably the last series production car to be so attired. The overall design and ergonomics meant the Roadster was more comfortable and commodious than the XK120, making it an ideal long-legged touring car. It really was a ‘best of both worlds’ model, with its elegant styling combining with many modern advancements and innovations. Early post-war steel shortages meant that the Roadster body (apart from its steel wings) was built from Birmabright aluminium alloy, almost certainly left over from aircraft production. This lightweight and durable bodywork combined with a marine-spec ash frame sat on a reassuringly robust tubular steel chassis that had a high corrosion resistance due to its significant chrome content. The engine was a 1776cc, 4-cylinder overhead-valve unit, developing 65bhp, and had a lot in common with the engine built by Standard exclusively for the Jaguar SS. A four-speed, right-hand column-change was used, which allowed the middle seat passenger to sit in comfort. Braking performance was impressive, benefitting from a Bugatti-designed, direct-acting master cylinder, whilst being hydraulically self-adjusting.

care of a former Marque club Spares Secretary (and consequently his family), and it was early in his ownership, in the nineties, that the car was fully restored. He took a lot of care to ensure the details were correct and that the car was painted and trimmed as closely as possible to its original specification, being Gunmetal Grey Metallic, contrasting favourably with the Navy Blue hood, Sea Blue leather and Royal Blue carpets. After his painstaking efforts, the newly restored car took part in numerous club events and was regularly successful in Marque club Concours d’Elegance, and even now continues to participate in drive outs and rallies. The car has benefitted from some recent mechanical and cosmetic refreshment carried out by our vendor, who, in addition to being a Chartered Engineer, is also one of the UK’s most knowledgeable Roadster owners. He has owned and driven a Roadster, almost daily, since the early 1960s so, as you’d expect, the car being offered now drives and performs very well, and retaining so many original features, this is one of the nicest Roadsters we have seen. Reassuringly, it comes with a full 12-month MoT. This relatively rare model, with only 2,500 examples manufactured, offers many advantages to classic car ownership. Possibly better known than most of its late Forties contemporaries, primarily having featured in TV’s Bergerac, it has distinguished good looks, an ability to tour with enough room for luggage or seat five adults, spare parts are plentiful and fellow owners are about as friendly a bunch as you will find. If that’s not what classic car ownership is all about, I don’t know what is.

The superbly presented car offered here is a 1946, 1800 Roadster and is the 255th example off the line. This complete and matching-numbers car still wears its original number plate and is the proud custodian of its original set of tools. From 1989 until 2015 this Roadster was in the

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.

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.

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.

PAYMENT Full payment for all lots must be made to SAL by the next working day after the sale. Payment can only be accepted in GBP. For security reasons, payments by Debit or Credit card (VISA/Mastercard) will only be accepted where the cardholder is present. Credit Card Payments are subject to a 1.76% surcharge. Business debit and credit cards are subject to a 2% surcharge. There is a floor cash limit of £5000. Items cannot be removed until paid for.

VAT VAT at the prevailing rate will be added to the Buyer’s premium which will be invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis. If you have any questions with regard to payment, please contact our administration department.

** There is no charge for the telephone and commission bidding service.

3. Discretion 3.1 SAL has the right as its sole discretion to refuse any bid, to divide any Lot, to combine two or more Lots, to withdraw any Lot and, in the case of dispute, to put any Lot up for Auction again. 3.2 If SAL is notified about the Seller’s alleged breach of any of the Terms before it has remitted the Sale Proceeds to the Seller, it may at its sole discretion withhold payment until that dispute is resolved.

Warranty by the Seller 7.1 The Seller warrants to the Buyer and to SAL that: 7.1.1 The Seller is the owner of the Lot or is properly authorised to sell the Lot by the owner, and is able to sell the Lot with full title guarantee free from all encumbrances and third party claims and in particular that there is no outstanding finance affecting the Lot. If the car is subject to finance the amount outstanding must be confirmed prior to consignment and sale. 7.1.2 The description of the Lot in the Catalogue is to the best of the Seller’s knowledge accurate and not misleading. The Seller has notified (or will before the Auction notify) SAL in writing of any material alterations to the Lot of which the Seller is aware and of any concerns expressed by third parties in relation to the authenticity, provenance, origin, age, condition or quality of the Lot and has provided SAL with all such information in the Seller’s possession or control. 7.1.3 If the Lot is a road going Motor Vehicle, it may lawfully be used on the public road and complies with all statutory provisions and that there is in force a test certificate required by law in relation to such use; OR ALTERNATIVELY the Seller has notified SAL in writing that the Motor Vehicle may not lawfully be used on the public road. 7.1.4 The Seller shall compensate SAL and the Buyer in full for all losses, expenses and other costs which are caused by the Seller’s breach of any obligation of the Seller under the Terms. 7.1.5 Where the vehicle is not registered in the UK, the seller shall be responsible for completing the NOVA application within 14 days or the car arriving in the UK and before the vehicle arrives at the auction for sale. 8.

All Lots will be sold without Reserve unless a Reserve has been agreed by SAL in writing. 9.4 Where a Reserve has been agreed, only SAL at its absolute discretion may bid on behalf of the Seller. 9.5 If no Reserve has been placed on a Lot, SAL shall in no way be held liable should the Lot be purchased for a price below any lowest estimated selling price of the Lot given in any Catalogue. 9.6 SAL may sell a Lot below the Reserve agreed with the Seller, provided that SAL accounts to the Seller for the same Sale Proceeds as the Seller would have received had the Lot been sold at that Reserve. 10.

Insurance 11.1 Only on payment of the Purchase Price in cleared funds shall title in the Lot pass from the Seller to the Buyer.

SAL may endeavour to assist the Seller but SAL shall be under no obligation to do so, and shall not be under any obligation to institute proceedings in its own name. 12.5 In the absence of any written instructions from the Seller to SAL within 7 days of SAL having notified the Seller under clause 12.4 SAL shall be entitled to take any of the actions set out in clause 19.: 12.6 Any monies recovered by and paid to SAL in consequences of SAL taking one or more of the steps referred to in clause 19 shall be applied to the payment of: 12.6.1 legal or other costs incurred by SAL in connection with such steps;. 12.6.2 Expenses; 12.6.3 the Buyer’s Premium and the Seller’s Commission on the sale of the Lot; 12.6.4 any balance remaining shall be paid to SAL to the Seller (or, if appropriate, the Buyer).

LOT 101

1986 BEN BOWLBY SC100

This is the very car that was designed and built by Ben Bowlby and his dad Richard in 1985 and was raced by Ben in Special Saloons from the 1986 season onwards. The car is currently eligible for the CSCC Special Saloon and Modsports Championship. During the time that Ben was using and developing the car, there was a Channel 4 documentary about Ben and the car ‘The nuts and bolts of Ben Bowlby’ (the current owner has this on vhs videos) as well as a YouTube clip of Ben visiting Frank Durney at Lotus to discuss the car’s aerodynamics. Amongst the design innovations by Ben in the early 80s were the flat floor, diffuser, adjustable front splitter and a ride height levelling system which sadly got banned. Whilst Ben Bowlby went on to climb the motorsport design and engineering ladder working for the likes of Lola and Chip Ganassi, his more recent innovations have been the Delta Wing Project and Nissan’s LMP1 car. The car was owned/raced by a number of drivers throughout the early 1990s including Erling Jenson who ran this car at some point as well as Paul Brend and Derek Barrett. The car was always regarded as ridiculously fast for a sub 1-litre car and held the class C lap record for years at Castle Combe being first 1-litre car to lap the Wiltshire circuit in under a minute and at an average speed of over 100mph. Throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, the car still made occasional race appearances but its outright pace was being eclipsed by the newer generation of club ‘prototypes’ such as Radicals and Junos. The car was then bought in mid-2010 by its current owner. His intention had always been to get the car back on track and then enjoy a number of track days before commissioning Simon Green Motorsport

to carry out a full rebuild of the car, and is often the way, this became a full restoration. The engine was removed and all suspension components stripped down, all rose joints checked over and replaced. and the wishbones were media blasted, crack tested and then fully powder coated. The chassis was stripped back too, and all welds crack tested before painting in gloss black. Whilst the engine was removed, a brand new 1,100cc unit was fitted from a ZZR Kawasaki and had one of their modified sumps and oil systems fitted. All the wheel bearings were replaced as were the driveshafts and UJs, and the exhaust system was fully ceramic coated along with new carbon race exhausts. The car even passed noise restrictions at Bedford Autodrome. Finally, it had brand new front and rear sections of bodywork made and these were created from moulds supplied with the car and which will be supplied to the new owner. In addition, the old wooden-based front splitter and rear diffuser were remade using carbon and aluminium to save weight and reduce flex. The last job was to make and fit carbon infills to cover the side pod section, as well as reduce the flex in this area. Offered without reserve, this car represents an incredible opportunity for the ultimate track-day car that will destroy practically anything else in sight. As mentioned, the car is also eligible for the CSCC Special Saloon and Modsports Championship. This amazing car must be seen to be appreciated and is offered in superb overall condition. Not to be missed!

Instantly dubbed ‘the poor man’s E-Type’, the wonderful GT6 was styled by Giovanni Michelotti in response to a brief from Triumph to produce a GT version of the Spitfire. Much more than a Spitfire with a hard top, it featured a fastback body that was so aerodynamically efficient it was later copied by the Competition Department at Triumph for the ‘works’ Spitfire entries at Le Mans. The GT6 shared the same powerful 2-litre six-cylinder engine with the Triumph Vitesse and with 105bhp on tap, could reach 60mph in 10 seconds and topped out at 112mph – figures that comfortably trounced the rival MGB. Launched in 1966, the first cars had the same wayward swing-axle rear suspension as the Spitfire and the Herald but this was ditched in the MkII versions of 1968 for a more conventional reversed lower wishbones set up.

1968 TRIUMPH GT6 RACE CAR

LOT 102

Registration: LRH95G Chassis Number: KC/52006 Engine Number: Not Specified Estimate (£): 12,000 - 15,000

This 1968 GT6 is an ‘entry level’ racer and was originally purchased in Holland nine years ago by our vendor as a ‘rolling chassis’. It was then taken to renowned Triumph specialist, Northampton based ‘Jigsaw’, who set about carefully building the car to ‘Appendix K’ specification. After the work was finished and the car was ready to go, it was entered in the 2013 Porto Historic and acquitted itself well, for a maiden outing, with two fourth place finishes. However, other commitments have meant that our vendor has simply not had the time to spare and the car has not raced since. Offered with a UK V5, a fresh MoT and HTP papers (applied for at the time of consignment), this well-prepared GT6 offers amazing value for someone seeking a low-cost entry into motor sport.

LOT 103

1959 MG A ROADSTER

Officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1955, the MGA was produced from 1955 to 1962 replacing the older ‘T-type’ cars and represented a complete break from the pre-war rectangular style. The MGA’s bodywork was based largely on that of a one-off MG TD specially built by the MG factory at the request of racing privateer George Phillips for Le mans in 1952. Later, a new chassis was designed enabling the driver to sit lower in the car with even cleaner bodywork and this was known as EX 175. This first prototype, in turn, was developed into EX182 and four of these were built for Le Mans in 1955 with the intention of entering the Production Class as they were, effectively, ‘pre-production’ MGAs. When the production date at Abingdon slipped a little, the three green cars (the other was red) were re-entered in the Prototype Class which provided a little latitude for further modifications. In the event, two cars finished in 12th and 17th proving the MGA’s potential. The MGA has been raced extensively since its 1955 introduction and with considerable success, both in period, and in today’s historic race series. Regularly seen at European and UK circuits for many years, this very sound ex-California car, was built in July 1959 and competed in the HARC MG-Competitions-Holland series during the 1990s. Imported into the UK in 2002 and issued with FIA Papers, the car was regularly raced until 2007 when the decision was made that the time had come for a re-commission and update. In 2008 work commenced, and the car was fitted with a new, very competitive, 1950cc engine with Weber 45DCOE carburetor, tubular manifold and big-bore exhaust system, an all-syncro 4-speed MGB

gearbox, uprated suspension using MGB Uprights, larger disc brakes, and 5.5J steel wheel rims. Unlike many UK club race cars, this very sound example retains all the original specification aluminum and steel panels with the addition of a Sebring-style front valance and a full-width low profile front windscreen. The car was then a regular competitor in the popular and exciting “Equipe” GTS race series from 2008 to 2015, and more recently has participated in various other events for 1950’s cars, including those run by the Bentley Drivers Club and Aston Martin Owners Club. Approved and issued with FIA Historic Identity Papers several years ago (now expired), the car has since been sympathetically modified to compete in UK club races, however, with a change of engine capacity and ancillaries, front brakes, and gearbox, the car could once again be made FIA eligible. Safety equipment includes a period style roll hoop with a diagonal brace and door bar, boot-mounted foam filled alloy fuel tank, race seat, harness, fire extinguisher, and electrical cut-offs. We advise interested purchasers to inspect these items to ensure they are within date. A fantastic and competitive racer, eligible for the majority of the best 50’s and 60’s sports car events. A superb opportunity to dip your toe in competitive historic racing and at a competitive price.

The Lotus Cortina came into being because of Ford’s decision to step up their motorsport involvement in the early 1960s. Ford’s Walter Hayes spoke to Colin Chapman, asking him to come up with a competitive saloon, using the Cortina as a base, that could be produced in sufficient numbers to satisfy the mandatory ‘Group 2’ homologation requirements, and with which the Blue Oval could beat all comers. The solution was to take Ford’s bullet-proof 1500 Kent engine, fit it with a twin-cam cylinder head, pop it into a stiffened Cortina shell, sort out the suspension and brakes and paint a green stripe down the side. The cars would be built by Lotus at its plant in Cheshunt, and marketed as the Ford Cortina Lotus. Once fully developed, Lotus-Cortinas absolutely shone on track driven by household names including Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, Jackie Ickx, Roger Clark and many, many more. Unlike many others racing today, this car has genuine period racing history and throughout its 52 years has benefited from constant development. The complete history of this competitive FIA Lotus Cortina is recorded from 21-2-1964 when it was first registered in Vercelli, Italy, to racer Giancarlo ‘Mici’ Giordano. The Lotus was sold in 1967 to its second owner, Sergio Piana, who was also a capable racer, as was its third, Mario Fren, who acquired the car in 1968 and was to keep it for a further twenty-two years. From 2000 to 2011 the car was owned by a fastidious BRDC member who was responsible for its maintenance and preparation, and his intelligent development resulted in the car becoming a recognised front-runner and race winner during his ownership. This level of competitiveness was particularly well respected as it was not achieved at the expense of originality. Since 2011, this car has been raced only a

The car is currently fitted with an engine built by the well-respected John Smurthwaite, and we are informed this unit has had only two hours running since new. Our vendor has also added under his ownership a DC electronics supplied, lightweight competition electric power steering (motor/gearbox, ecu, wiring loom) which was bought at a price of £9,000 not long ago. This equipment is a bolted on to the steering column and can easily be removed. What’s also fantastic about this car is that our vendor has gone to great lengths to create the sort of all round package needed to go racing effectively. Generously included with the car, are a zero-hours John Smurthwaite spare engine (normal retail £24K), a spare gearbox built with new internals (£7,500) and a pair of differentials (£3,500 each). Two new sets of Magnesium wheels (at a cost of £1,000 each) and a number of smaller spares enhance this historic racing package, and at a guide price of £70-£80k for the lot, is an opportunity not to be missed. This is a fabulous and rare example of an FIA Lotus Cortina with enviable provenance and decades of period history. The car is eligible for a variety of Touring Car Series throughout Europe, including the U2TC and Masters, and considering the content of the overall package with the spare units, represents remarkable value for money.

1972 FORD ESCORT RS 1600 MKI FIA RACE CAR

Ralph Broad was a Birmingham-born racing driver and more famously an exceptional engineer. His company, Broadspeed, was part of a huge industry that grew up around the British Motor Corporation (BMC) Mini in the 1960s. Throughout the sixties, the Broadspeed cars were very successful in European saloon car events and the British Saloon Car Championship, winning their class at Monza, Spa, and Zandvoort with their Cooper ‘S’ in 1965. In the same year, John Fitzpatrick won the British Saloon Car title in a Broadspeed Ford Anglia. The partnership with BMC was ended on a friendly basis when Broadspeed’s allegiance moved to Ford, however, successes continued with the Ford Escort and in 1971 John Fitzpatrick won four rounds of the BTCC. Offered here is a replica Broadspeed Escort RS1600 BDA from that period, built by ex-Jaguar and Ford race engineer David Silcox. It enjoyed considerable success driven in New Zealand by Dave Crowther before being acquired by our vendor in 2009. Preparation and engineering input were then entrusted to Mass Racing and a dyno sheet shows the Ford Cosworth BDG with Lucas fuel injection producing 271 bhp at 8500rpm.

Weight is kept to the minimum with a fibreglass bonnet, boot, and doors and the rear screen and side windows are Lexan. The bubble wheel arch extensions are steel. We are informed by the owner that the Historic Technical Passport has recently been renewed and the Escort is mechanically ‘’race ready’’. We advise any interested parties to satisfy themselves on the validity dates of the safety equipment. In the hands of our vendor, this wellprepared car has enjoyed outings at the Algarve, Donington, and Masters Historic Festivals. This superb, period correct, 1600 BDA Escort is potentially eligible to compete is some of the finest historic events in the race calendar. With this level of preparation it surely represents exceptional value and is probably one the most rewarding historic saloon car racers on the market today.

1966 FIA FORD MUSTANG RACE CAR

Registration: HOV 117D Chassis Number: 6F09C341372 Engine Number: Not specified Estimate (£): 50,000 - 60,000

UK saloon car racing in the 1960s was epitomised by the battles between the American V8s and the British Lotus Ford Cortinas, Austin Minis and Hillman Imps. They were driven, in this early period of the BTCC, by Grand Prix stars of the day such as Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart and Sir Stirling Moss, as well as saloon car specialists like Frank Gardener, Brian Muir, Roy Pierpoint, Warwick Banks and John Fitzpatrick. It was an exciting and evocative period of motor sport 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.

This car is fitted with a 289ci 4.8-litre V8 engine with new cylinder heads from Modus Engine Services, mated to a 4-speed manual ‘Top loader’ with a Hurst shifter. The interior houses two new Cobra Monaco buckets seats, Sparco 5-point harnesses and a mandatory plumbed in fire extinguisher. Potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality and currency of all the safety equipment in this car. The car was finished and race prepared by well-known specialist Steve Curl, and now looks stunning. Having not completed a race as yet, this car has it all to prove and comes supplied with a UK V5c and current FIA HTP papers valid until 2026.

Presented here is a 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback ‘Shelby Replica’ that has been purpose built to Appendix K FIA specification for Period F - 1962 to 1965. Purchased by our vendor as a road car in 2014, all the rot was cut out and the bodyshell sorted ready to accept a Custom Cages roll-cage that was welded into place, before a bare-metal respray in Wimbledon White with the customary blue stripe.

This iconic car is eligible for many historic championship events such as the FIA Pre-66 GT Championship, 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, hence the passenger seat. It’s a professionally built, full-race, FIA Mustang in the right colour scheme at a very sensible guide. An opportunity not to be missed.

2000 FORD MONDEO SUPER TOURER

In the year 2000, on the back of a (rumoured) £12m budget from Ford, Banbury based legendary race and rally experts, Prodrive, built 3 Super Tourers to contest the 2000 British Touring Car Championship. With factory drivers Alain Menu, Anthony Reid and Rickard Rydell they went on to dominate the championship completely, winning most of the rounds and finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the 2000 British Touring Car Championship final standings. At a supposed cost of £1m each car (and £3m running budget per car) the team dominated like no other before or since. One car was written off during the season, so only 3 of the 4 cars ever built survive today. The ‘Menu’ Championship winning car features in the Banbury Prodrive museum, the ‘Reid’ car is campaigned enthusiastically by noted Ford collector/driver Alvin Powell and this is the only other car (chassis: # Prodrive 004), as driven that season by Rickard Rydell. Bought by the highly enthusiastic current privateer owner from us in 2014, the car has since been campaigned successfully by him over the past 2 seasons in mainstream historic touring car races, including an outright win at the highly prestigious 2014 Super Touring Race at the Silverstone Classic, driven by ex-World Touring Car Champion - Rob Huff - and is a more than welcome entrant into the current great series for period Super Tourers run by Jonny Westbrook and Dave Jarman. The car is ‘on the button’ and ready to race and has been maintained by a professional team, regardless of cost, during current ownership.

1966 PORSCHE 911 SWB COMPETITION

When Porsche introduced their 911 model in 1963 the sports car market throughout the world was taken aback by its great looks, light weight, advanced engineering and outstanding performance and handling. The early cars featured a short wheelbase chassis and a smooth ‘flat 6 Boxer’ engine, of 2.0-litre capacity, that gave the car excellent performance. This was enhanced at the end of ‘65/early ‘66 by the introduction of the ‘S’ variant which gave 158BHP, as well as larger brakes, Fuchs alloy wheels and a close ratio 5-speed gearbox.

More recently its highly experienced UK vendor has raced it on Tour Britannia and in several UK historic races with professional maintenance throughout. The engine is a low mileage 2.0 litre Courage prepared unit running on Weber carburettors coupled to a smooth ‘901’ type dog-leg 5-speed gearbox and lsd. The car has a recent multipoint cage and a 100 litre ATL bag tank, both fitted in 2012, and both FFSA and FIA HTP papers which are currently being updated. The car weighs just 1002 Kgs and is competitive in its class.

This particular car is a 1965/1966 short wheelbase version of the 911 2.0 litre, that has great provenance having been previously owned by noted driver, Alain Schlesinger. He had the car originally prepared for competition by Jacques Bourgoin and subsequently run and maintained by Courage Motorsport in France. Subsequently, it has been driven by some outstanding French drivers in historic racing, including Jacques Laffite, Gerard Larousse, Bernard Darniche and Jean-Claude Andruet.

The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms that the car was actually built in May ‘66, although it runs to ‘65 spec for FIA purposes. These rare early short wheelbase 911s are very desirable for use in competition now, including at Goodwood, and this is an excellent and well-prepared example.

2015 BAMFORD ROSE ASTON MARTIN V8 VANTAGE

This particular V8 was built by Bamford Rose in March 2015 as a racing car to comply with the technical regulations governing The Aston Martin V8 Vantage Cup (class V2) run by Aston Club Racing, forming part of a race series competing with works prepared/Prodrive GT4 cars. The car was developed from a 2007 V8 road car that had sustained a bit of damage (Cat D) in a road accident. The engine is 4.7litre full race GT4 engine built by Adrian Miller of Bamford Rose and is reported to produce 485 BHP. To achieve that output, Bamford Rose tuned equal length exhaust manifolds; 200 cell catalysts along with using ITG air filters and 3-way exhaust control switch to meet track DB noise restrictions. For the driveline, a lightweight flywheel has been used with a twin-plate sintered clutch along with a fully rebuilt and ‘superpolished’ gearbox with all the seals renewed. In terms oh handling and set-up, electromagnetic switchable dampers with a cockpit switch for dry/wet conditions have been fitted along with a much ‘beefier’ rear anti-roll bar. GT4 spec front uprights are preferred with front and rear rose-jointing along with an adjustable rear toe link. Retardation is entrusted to V12 Vantage front and rear brakes (6 pot front and 4 pot rear). Two sets of black painted 19-inch race wheels shod with 255/40/19 (f) and 285/35/19 (r) Pirelli ‘P Zeros’ plus one set of unused Kumho quali / test day tyres are included in the sale. The interior has also been professionally stripped and trimmed by Bamford Rose. They started by removing the airbags and added new Sparco race seats with 5-point harnesses. An FIA /GT4 roll cage was fitted along with a state of the art fire extinguisher system, battery cut off switches and a lightweight heavy duty race battery. The pedals

The Carbon centre console now houses switchgear and the dash itself was re-trimmed in non-reflective Alcantara. There is a forward-facing camcorder mounted on the roll cage, electric windows are retained for ventilation and the standard door locks are also kept, but the central locking system has been removed along with the alarm. The DSC/ABS/ Traction control has also been retained but has been de-sensitised and re-programmed for circuit driving. The front and rear of the chassis were stiffened with significant weight removal, particularly in the rear, and an easy-up manual jacking system was added. The body panels are all lightweight parts used from V12 Vantage road cars and GT4 spec parts such as the ‘diveplanes’ and an adjustable rear wing help keep the car stable in high-speed corners. As if this stunning car’s dramatic looks were not enough, it’s been finished in head-turning Pearlescent Aston Racing Green with Red and Black accents and White Aston Club Racing square number cards on doors and bonnet. As a result of all this work this track weapon partnered with a prestigious badge weighs 1470kg, offers genuine performance and is also in possession of a UK V5C meaning that, should you so wish, you could drive it to the pub!! All mechanical, and other replacement parts and components have less than six hours running time since this car was converted in March 2015. This is a fantastic all round package enabling its new owner to enjoy track days and the club racing scene whilst looking ‘pretty damn cool’ in the process.

The 2-Eleven is the most ‘track-focused’ road car Lotus has ever built and the emphasis is on the ‘road car’ bit because despite the wings, splitters, launch control, and racing stripes the Lotus 2-Eleven can be driven to the shops. It’s a lightweight track car. It has no doors, no roof and no concessions to comfort. You can’t drive it on the road without a crash helmet, well you could if you like the taste of flying insects, and you don’t really want to be venturing too far from home if there’s rain in the air. However, when the sun is shining and you’re faced with a long ribbon of empty tarmac (country road or local circuit) the Lotus 2-Eleven is just the business. It’s all about weight or the lack of it. Overall, the 2-Eleven tips the scales at 670kg, around 200kg lighter than the Elise ‘S’ (not a heavy car), but packs a whopping 118 more horses from its 252.bhp, supercharged, four-cylinder 16-valve Toyota engine.

Underneath, the Lotus 2-Eleven’s underpinnings are a combination of the original high-sill (and therefore stiffer) Elise chassis and the latest rear subframe, accommodating the transverse mid-mounted Toyota engine. The result is a guided missile that can sprint to 60mph in 3.8 seconds, 100mph in 8.9 seconds and reach 150mph. The 2008 Lotus 2-Eleven here has been enjoyed by one owner and covered just 4,000 miles including a few track-days. The car was completely stripped in 2012 and rebuilt to GT4 spec., including a factory 270ps upgrade, Torsen LSD, Kaz gearbox, full FIA roll cage, single seat fibreglass cover panel, Moroso sump etc. It has just been repainted in Ecurie Ecosse Blue and is in exceptional condition. If picking up the children from school is not part of you daily vehicular requirements, then this focussed little Lotus could be the most fun you have ever had with your clothes on!

The 13-piece fibreglass bodywork is constructed with a material called ‘Coremat’ that is pretty much the strongest non-woven (i.e. noncarbonfibre) material available. It’s also cheaper and easier to produce and the 2-Eleven’s suit of clothes weighs just 38kg.

1973 DATSUN 240Z WORKS RALLY REPLICA

The Datsun 240Z, (latterly the 260Z and 280Z) was the first generation of ‘Z’ two-seat coupés produced by Nissan in Japan from 1969 to 1978. Its dramatic looks owed a considerable amount to a 1960’s styling concept drawn by Count Albrecht Goertz for Datsun, presumably at a time when they were considering ways to break into the European sports car market. The early cars were powered by a lusty 2.4 litre, straight six, overhead cam engine, developing around 150bhp resulting in a 0-60 time of 8 seconds, and a top speed of 125mph. A five-speed manual gearbox was standard and the car featured independent suspension all round with MacPherson struts at the front and Chapman links at the rear. Rack and pinion power steering and front disc brakes meant that the 240Z was a thoroughly modern package. The car complies fully with ‘MSA Stage Rally’ regulations. The body shell has been reinforced with additional heavy-duty chassis legs, added gussets, and has been double seam-welded to ensure it’s as strong as it can be. Mostly steel, the bodywork is finished in the correct shade of Red with Matt Black and is enhanced by a ‘Works’ style GRP bonnet, tailgate and ‘drop’ front bumper.

Braking is handled by 4-pot alloy brake calipers all round, fitted with Mintex M1155 pads squeezing vented discs up front with solid discs at the rear. The brakes are connected via Aeroquip hoses to an adjustable bias bar and a hydraulic handbrake. This potent machine is fully furnished in rally trim with ‘Motordrive’ rally seats, four-point ‘Sabelt’ harnesses, and a custom designed ‘rally’ dashboard fitted with a Brantz Tripmaster. UK registered and presented with a recent MoT and current MSA Historic Vehicle Identity papers, this car is a superb example and perfect for both accomplished and novice rally drivers. Built by one of the best preparers in the business and seldom used, it simply would not be possible to build a car to such a high specification for this price.

Registration: Not Specified Chassis Number: M-20826-AA Engine Number: Not Specified Estimate (£): 20,000 - 25,000

Offered for sale is a very exciting, rare and unusual car in the UK and a first for Silverstone Auctions! A 2007 Ford Fusion Nextel Cup Nascar, built, owned and driven by the legendary driver Robby Gordon. An awesome car that gets the attention of everyone who sees it. The exterior of the car looks like a genuine retired race car, with the odd battle scar adding to the authentic look of a car used in anger in the white-hot pace that is American Nascar.

Prior to being imported here, the car was taken to a Nascar workshop in the USA specialising in the race preparation of Nascars for gentlemen drivers and overall the car checked out very well. The specialists stated there were no signs of any accident damage, with the chassis appearing to be all straight and correct. In fact, the car received high praise from the shop owner who is a perfectionist and typically critical of most cars that pass through his works!

Fitted with a small block engine that has been professionally built by Menards Racing Development, with expensive performance parts such as the Wilson intake manifold, this car also retains its very expensive twin ignition boxes and sounds incredible. It’s enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and grown men cry! At the end of a racing season these cars are typically sold off to the American public as ‘bare bones’ cars, however, this car managed to escape that fate and many of the expensive and crucial parts remained with the car making this a very exciting proposition for anyone wishing to purchase this racer.

Since being in the UK the car has formed part of a private collection which includes many exciting vehicles including a collection of race Ferraris, however, the vendor informs us that no other car in his collection creates the excitement and interest as this Nascar, a car he loves and is reluctantly being sold to slim down his collection. A very rare opportunity to add one of the most exotic and unusual race cars in the UK to your garage and to become the envy of your friends and colleagues. You can now finally pretend to be Cole Trickle in your own garage!

1975 FIA GROUP 2 FORD ESCORT BDG ZAKSPEED REPLICA

Although a Formula One constructor from 1985-89, Zakspeed is better known for its FIA Group 2 Escorts and its Group 5 Capris. They did, however, enter seventy-four Grand Prix and were unique at one stage producing an F1 car with their own chassis and engine; only Ferrari had the same in-house facility. Founded by Erich Zakowski in 1968, they were actively involved in many forms of motorsport and employed many well-known drivers - Klaus Ludwig, Manfred Winkelhock, Jonathan Palmer, Martin Brundle and Bernd Schneider all drove Zakspeeds from F1 to Touring Cars. Built and prepared by Mark Wright Motorsport, this FIA Escort BDG is well regarded and accepted as a fully developed front running historic racer. It is engineered and finished to a very high standard in its recreated form as the famous Europa-Mobel Zakspeed Escort with full MSA and HTP papers. The specification includes an all-alloy Ford 2.0 BDG with custom profile cams, full race-spec head, steel bottom end, dry sump, Weber 50 carburettors, tubular manifold and a race exhaust system. Built by Tracksport, the gearbox is a five-speed Type 9 incorporating special roller bearings and straight cut gears and the rear axle has a special fully floating 4.4 gripper type differential. The front suspension is fully rose-jointed with coil-over damping, alloy hubs and adjustable top mounts. The rear suspension is a four linkage set up ‘A’ frame with top links and inboard coil-overs. It has ‘Monte Carlo’ discs all round with a biased pedal box and the car sits on split rim 15’’ Compomotives, 10”inch fronts and 13’’ rears, wearing Avon slicks. It’s fitted with a new moulded front spoiler and the car is supplied with a spare and the

original mould to deal with the inevitable. The rebuild, in preparation for the 2016 season has now been completed and included the engine, alloy gearbox, back axle and the shock-absorbers. The seat, belts and fire extinguisher are all in-date and ready for the season, and the vendor is happy to provide detailed engineering information and offer advice on set-ups. This Escort holds numerous lap records, fastest laps and has been piloted to a number of overall race wins powered by its very reliable, John Smirthwaite built, 265bhp Ford BDG. The car is a Masters Historic Grp2 Championship winner, HSCC Supertourers class winner and finished a very close third in the closed wheel HSCC support race to the Spa 6 Hours last year. This is possibly the fastest Group 2 Escort available today, and having just had a 2016 ‘turn key’ refresh, this proven racer represents a great opportunity, for a realistic budget, to clamber onto the top step of the podium at a number of prestigious Historic Saloon Car events. Our generous vendor has included in this package a Motor Racing Legends Historic Touring Car Challenge entry into this year’s Silverstone Classic race. The car will come to the auction prepped for the race and if, for whatever reason it doesn’t sell, he will compete it himself in that race which is run out of the paddock directly below the auction hall. So for any potential buyer out there you can buy a rapid Group 2 Escort on the Thursday night and race the car on Friday at one of the world’s largest historic motorsport festivals….

1987 BMW ARROWS FORMULA ONE EX DEREK WARWICK

Having finished 9th in 1984 in the Formula One Championship Table and 8th in 1985, Arrows Grand Prix International had high hopes for 1986 with their new A9 car and its BMW M12 turbo. It wasn’t to be however, and sadly the team ended the year pointless. For 1987, BMW decided they “wanted their ball back” and pulled the plug, leaving Arrows with the promising new A10 but no engine and no money.

The car was purchased by the current owner in 2002 and stored for approximately four years, however, a number of opportunities became available for the car to be displayed and driven at events, so the decision was taken to bring it out of storage and prepare it to return to the circuits. It has since been driven at no more than two events each year with a total of 1-2 hours driving time.

However, Arrows team boss, ex Lotus F1 driver and legendary negotiator, Jackie Oliver, managed to squeeze some support from their primary sponsor USF&G. BMW then agreed to continue to supply engines as long as they were assembled by, and branded as, Megatron. With additional strokes of genius, he brought in Ross Brawn to head up the design team and recruited the highly talented new driver pairing of Derek Warwick and Eddie Cheever. They had driven together as part of the successful Silk Cut Jaguar Endurance Team and were both race winners as well as being notable for being able to provide good engineering feedback.

Recently, the car has been looked after by the very well respected Roger Heavens Motorsport and has benefitted from a partial engine rebuild early in 2016, an extended roll hoop, and the wishbones have been crack tested. The car will have a simplified starting procedure by the time it is offered for sale, and will be supplied with a small number of spares.

1981 PORSCHE 924 CARRERA GTR

Porsche had ambitions to return to Le Mans in 1980 with the intention of running in Group 4 (Sports Cars) and decided to base the new competition car on their successful 924 mainstream model. Naturally, in order to withstand the rigours of 24 hours around Le Sarthe, the full-race cars would have to be substantially different from their ‘shopping’ siblings. Firstly, however, Porsche had to comply with the FIA Homologation Regulations dealing with the construction and quantities produced of a relevant road-car on which the ‘racer’ was to be based. Earlier, in 1979, Porsche had produced a styling exercise exploring possible design elements for future road cars, and this was made public at the Frankfurt Motor Show that year. One of these design submissions involved a much more masculine and aggressive look applied to the 924 and this was well received and later, became a major influence on the shape of the new 944.

24 T H E S I LV E R STO N E C LAS S I C SA L E 2 0 1 6

However, in the meantime, it was decided to apply some aspects of the Frankfurt styling exercise to the existing 924 and the result was the 924 Carrera GT (labelled 937 and 938-rhd). As well as the more dramatic bodywork, all non-essential elements were removed from the car in an effort to reduce weight. Standard specification included a close ratio, dog-leg, 5-speed gearbox, LSD, Bilstein shock absorbers, polyurethane front and rear flared guards, a polyurethane front spoiler, and a bonnet mounted air scoop for the intercooler. With a 2-litre turbocharged engine producing 210 bhp, it will reach a top speed of 150 mph and hits 60 mph in an impressive 6.5 seconds. Porsche made 406 of the 924 Carrera GTs in 1981, including six prototypes. A step up from the GT was the GTS, of which 59 were made in the Stuttgart factory. These were more powerful than the standard Carrera GT, thanks largely to increased boost. The GTS models are distinguished by perspex headlamp covers replacing the pop-up headlights on the GT,

www. s i l ve rsto n e a u ct i o n s . c o m


1981 PORSCHE 924 CARRERA GTR

and an intercooler in front of the engine rather than on top of it. 15 of the 59 were ‘Club Sport’ cars, featuring a roll cage, more power, and less weight than the regular GTS. However, the ultimate 924 in competition terms was undoubtedly the GTR, some of which were available to private customers at a cost of $75,000. Porsche built just 17 examples, of which nine either raced in or qualified at Le Mans. Other examples of the 17 GTRs were raced in Europe, the US and Japan, with one notable exception, this particular car! The GTR benefitted from Porsche’s constant factory development. The intercooler was relocated to the front, as with the GTS, but was much larger, filling much of the nose of the car, and the cars were delivered from Porsche with fully integrated roll cages, fully adjustable suspension, and four-piston 935 brake calipers squeezing larger 31cm discs. The engine was a highly modified version of the 2.0litre motor used in all 924s, featuring dry sump lubrication, which helped it produce 375bhp and 299 lb/ft of torque. The figures were very impressive. Weighing 930 kilos, the GTR was good for 180mph/ 290kmh (more when aerodynamically detailed), and 0-60mph took 4.7 seconds. In 1980, Porsche entered three 924 GTRs at the 24hrs of Le Mans, finishing 6th, 12th and 13th overall, and went on to achieve an excellent class win in 1982. This amazing one owner, 109 kilometres from new, survivor has an even more incredible story to tell. One of only two cars delivered to Japan from new (the other example having been used for racing), the car was brought into the country in 1981 by Porsche importer ‘Garage Italya’. In 1983, after being stored for 2 years, it was purchased by a Japanese

businessman and classic car enthusiast who wanted to add it to his private collection. The car was never raced, but was enjoyed a handful of times on the track at Suzuka and the Fuji Speedway. On each occasion, our fastidious Japanese owner made a record of the distance travelled at each track day. According to his records, the car covered just 109 kilometres in the first 7 years of his ownership, after which the 924 was carefully stored in his two-storey garage, safely in the first-floor attic space accessible by a car lift. The GTR was then removed from storage each year, taken on a trailer to be serviced, brought back, then placed back in position in the garage. From 1981 to 2006 the car was serviced by Porsche specialist ‘Tomei Car Service’, then latterly by Porsche specialist ‘Garage Tool Box’. In the intervening period, the engine was started and run regularly. Offered with a Japanese title document and records of its minimal usage and extensive maintenance, this GTR is surely the best available example of Porsche’s ultimate and rare incarnation of the 924. However, there is much more to this car than that simple background. It is by far and away the most original, untouched and completely unmolested example of any Porsche we have ever seen. It is presented exactly today as the factory built it, even down to the initials on the stickers on the engine management box! It is a complete time warp car and a total one-off investment opportunity, unique in this anniversary year of the Porsche ‘transaxle cars’ and introduction of the original 924 model.

1998 MARCOS MANTIS GT3

GT3 racing is fabulous, but running at the ‘front end’ with so many competitive cars has now become very expensive in terms of the initial team set up and race by race running costs. Whilst thrilling to drive and impressive to listen to and look at, the current crop of cars are becoming ever more complex and costly to run, with life on the major units such as the engine and gearboxes becoming shorter and the financial numbers getting bigger. Sadly, these large initial costs may well result in fewer and fewer people having the privilege to experience the thrill of racing GT3 cars. Thankfully, we at Silverstone Auctions can offer attractive solutions to costly 2016 spec GT3 racing, and this well proven and refined Marcos GT3 is an ideal example. Offered here with a comprehensive amount of spares, (detailed below), this package offers potentially outstanding value considering the amount of kit, and is being offered at a guide price of £30-£35k. Whilst yes, this is not a current GT3 car, but with those current spec cars fetching £300K+ before spares and actual running costs, what better chance for a new team to ‘dip a toe in the water’ of this ever popular and iconic racing scene. The grunt comes from a Chevy LS7 developing approximately 600 BHP with a Motec dash and ECU, whilst the gearbox is a Hewland sequential flat-shift with an Aston Martin DBRS9 differential. The car sits on Dymag centre-lock wheels and has an Endurance fuel tank with quick-fill along with endurance spec front lighting – perfect for Dutch Supercar, GT Cup, Britcar or Belcar. Indeed, this Marcos has been developed by renowned BRDC member and 2016 Le Mans entrant, Ollie Bryant, and has previously competed in four Britcar 24 hour races, resulting in class podiums, along with being the actual car to win the Marcos challenge series in the late 90’s.

A true piece of Alfa Romeo racing history, a genuine factory Alfa Romeo 156 Touring car. This Alfa Romeo has had a very competitive racing career, winning the Campeonato de Italia de Superproducción in 1999, a recognised race car throughout Europe with great success throughout its racing life. Built by Fiat Auto Corse to FIA Super Production regulations in 1998, this Alfa Romeo 156 was used to good effect by renowned touring car team Scuderia Bigazzi to win the Campeonato de Italia de Superproducción with Luis Villamil behind the wheel. Subsequently, it was imported to the UK by GA Motorsports, the team founded by works British and Italian Touring Car Champion, Gary Ayles for use in the British Touring Car Championship. Running in the Super Production Class under the GA Janspeed banner the car was driven in 2001 by Gavin Pyper who gathered great pace, eventually finishing 6th in the championship. In 2002 the car was entered for the full BTCC season by GA Motorsports for Alan Blencowe who finished 7th in the championship, recording three podium finishes. 2003 saw the GA Motorsports team once again enter the car for a limited campaign in the BTCC, where Chris Ryan scored a victory in the opening round at Mondello Park. Subsequently sold, the car was run in the Britcar Production championship by Brunswick Automotive and was raced in the Nurburgring 24 Hour Race in 2005.

Registration: 501 UYR Chassis Number: 105E115195 Engine Number: Not Specified Estimate (£): 20,000 - 25,000

In 1962, Ford introduced the Anglia Super to the range with a higher level of equipment. Engine capacity was increased to 1198cc and it was now fitted with the all-synchromesh four-speed gearbox from the Cortina. There was more chrome, a luxury interior and a heater as standard. Strap on a pair of spot lights and you had a useful rally car. The engine was capable of being modified to produce much more power and it became the motive power unit for various forms of motorsport. The Ford Anglia was entered in the Monte Carlo Rally from 1960-65 finishing consistently above its station, and today rally and racing Anglias are still an important and competitive part of the historic scene and are homologated by the FIA at 997cc, 1198cc and1340cc.

Alex Postan, himself no stranger to motorsport, rebuilt the car for a final time with an Autosportif all steel 1650 cc Ford pre-Crossflow engine, along with a full gearbox rebuild and some other remedial work at a total cost of over £10,000. The car was dyno tested by DTW engines and showed a figure of 151 bhp at 7500 rpm. Raced and rallied in England and on the continent, this car has proved to be an excellent, multi-discipline, tarmac competition car. To the Historic Ford aficionado, it has the ultimate specification: all steel 1650cc precrossflow with twin Weber 45 carburettors and A6 camshaft; the gearbox is a straight-cut, TranX three rail, Rocket ‘box; and the ‘A’ frame rear axle has a Quaife Torsen differential and three-piece competition half shafts.

Offered here is a competition prepared 1960 Ford Anglia with a superb history. A letter in the file from 11th November 1992 states that the car was previously owned by a Mr John Charles D. Smith, at which point it was registered URX 949. The car was eventually passed down to a Mrs P.G. Griffin, daughter of the first owner, who later sold it to a Mr Toplis of Nottingham. URX was built up into ‘club rally’ spec and then sold to well-known Cobra racer John Atkins of Banbury. He persuaded the DVLA to release the iconic Anglebox registration ‘105E’ made notorious in the early days of saloon car racing by the infamous ‘Doc’ Merfield. FIA Appendix ‘K’ papers as a 1200 were gained in 2000 and the car was invited to the Goodwood Revival where it finished 12th of 22 competitors in the St Mary’s Trophy race that included famous names like, Smokin’ John Rhodes, Jackie Oliver, Gerry Marshall and Silverstone Auction’s very own MD Nick Whale. Atkins repeated the exercise the following year before dismantling the car and selling the car to Alex Postan who rebuilt it as a 1650cc Anglia in the style of the Superspeed cars as raced by John Young and Chris Craft.

Finished in dark metallic blue with a silver roof, the cockpit houses two Sparco seats and safety harnesses. There is also a plumbed in fire extinguisher behind the driver’s seat, hidden neatly underneath the original rear seats which still remain in situ. Potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality and currency of all the safety equipment in this car. More recently this ‘Anglebox’ has only made it out into the competitive arena a handful of times, the last of which was at Prescott last year.

1966 FORD CORTINA TO LOTUS MK I FIA APPENDIX K

Starting life on the 23rd June 1966 as a Ford Cortina De Luxe, this car was bought by our gentleman racer vendor, Eifion Jones in 2013. In common with many racing Cortinas, the donor car was converted to full Appendix K Lotus Cortina specification, from a standard Cortina base car with no expense spared. The engine was built by Competition Engine Services to FIA Appendix K spec and runs on 45 DCOE Weber carburettors, producing a very healthy 183 bhp, as confirmed in a copy of the dyno sheet in the history file. The lightweight shell was aciddipped at the start of the process, and all the brackets to convert to ‘A’ frame were fitted, which means it can be easily converted to ‘A’ frame and coil springs if required. The shell was seam stitched and the T45 safety cage was welded in. The doors, bonnet and boot lid are alloy, keeping the weight down to, what our vendor informs us, is a very competitive 756 kilograms. A competition clutch was mated to a Quaife close ratio straight cut gearbox, alloy bellhousing, tail shaft and remote gearchange housing. The back axle was modified for negative camber and fitted with an alloy differential housing, containing a 4:7-1 differential and LSD. Specially made aircraft-quality steel half shafts were added, the front struts were modified for negative camber and fitted with adjustable Ohlins shocks, and the rear leaf springs were mated to adjustable Ohlins shocks. The one-inch anti-roll bar was fitted with increased castor mountings and the brakes fitted with competition pads and linings, bias pedal box and adjustable rear brakes.

The TS8 was the second Surtees Formula 5000 design and was based on the team’s Surtees TS7 Formula 1 car. It sold well to privateers and won races in Mike Hailwood’s hands, but engine problems prevented him topping the table in the 1971 British series. Built on the same jigs as the TS7, it had the same suspension, wheels and brakes but used a Hewland DG300 gearbox and the wheelbase was some three inches longer due to the longer bell housing. Like the Cosworth DFV in their F1 car, the Chevy V8 was fully stressed, but the mountings for the rear radius rods were repositioned on the rear bulkhead. This Surtees, ‘TS8/006’, is one of two cars originally owned by Doug Champlin and Fred Carillo of Champ Carr (Capistrano, CA). These cars were run for Sam Posey in the US in 1971 and Rocky Moran in 1972. In 1971, Sam Posey steered this car to second place overall in the Formula 5000 championship finishing just behind David Hobbs’ McLaren. Raced again in the US until 1975 ‘TS8/006’ is then believed to have been owned by Chuck Haines (Can-Am Cars) who kept the car for a number of years but then advertised it for sale in the late ‘90s

The car has been driven by a host of celebrated motorsport figures including Perry McCarthy and David Hobbs. ‘GFO 117’ was recently the subject of a double-page feature in Autosport magazine, a copy of which is available, as well as a complete set of qualifying and race results from the last seven years.

1959 AUSTIN A40 FARINA MK II RACE CAR

Elliot tacho & Racetech instruments, lightened bumpers, Weller race wheels, MG Midget front disc brakes and calipers, negative camber front suspension trunnions, ‘Slipper’ adjustable rear springs, adjustable rear arm dampers, uprated front dampers and one inch front anti-roll bars. Potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality and currency of all the safety equipment in this car. ‘GFO 117’ is painted in Speedwell Blue, with an Old English White interior. Our vendor purchased the car from Silverstone Auctions at The Classic Sale in 2013 and had well respected historic motorsport preparation company, Rae Davis Racing, complete a full rebuild at the cost of £15,000 for which there are supporting invoices in the history file. At the same time, the 1293cc A-Series engine was rebuilt by Nick Swift costing a further £8,000, and it has only completed one race distance since. The car is offered with a comprehensive package of spares, including a Quaife gearbox, bodywork, Mk1 shell, two Quaife half-shafts, spare standard radiator, spare LSD, spare starter & alternator, front and rear springs and spare wheels & tyres. This characterful little A40 would be welcome at any circuit, and is ideal for anyone looking to get into historic racing and, hopefully, be instantly competitive.

The car has a fully seam-welded and lightened body shell with a full roll cage designed and built by Caged Laser Engineering. The car also boasts a close ratio Leyland Special Tuning gearbox, Salisbury type LSD 4.5 ratio, strengthened half shafts, Lifeline fire extinguisher, Recaro seat, 6-point race safety harness, aluminium foam filled fuel tank,

This March 733, Formula 3 car was ordered new at the 1973 Racing Car Show in January by Chris Andrews of Baty Ltd. and was affectionately known thereafter as the ‘’Baty March’’ It was then run by Chris Marshall of Sloan Marshall Garages for the late, and exceedingly talented, Ian Taylor. Pre-season testing resulted in the March being retubbed (no.26) after an accident at Snetterton. Ian Taylor competed in all major F3 Championships in 1973 winning the Forward Trust Championship outright in a field that reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of aspiring single seater drivers. He also finished fifth in the John Player and sixth in the Lombard North Central Championships. The history file lists all the subsequent owners and championships in which it competed up until 1998 when it was retired. Purchased by our vendor in 2009 with the Monaco Historic Festival in mind, the following year the

car was completely rebuilt. He entered the Superprix at Brands Hatch in 2009 and won his class. In 2010 he entered the F3 at Monaco again winning his class and mixing it with the 2-litre cars. He has now chosen to retire from racing, so consequently this fabulous March 733/26 Holbay has come to the market just three races after a full rebuild. There is a reasonable quantity of (mostly) new or unused spares with the car including two sets of wheels, suspension components, various gear ratios and a radiator frame. This pretty, championship winning, Formula 3 with Ian Taylor provenance, at today’s guide is simply irresistible.

company to expand into other areas of technology and have reached the highest level by being the first to offer a commercially available professional driving simulator for Formula 1. The car on offer today is equipped with the highly rated, and very successful in period, 2000cc Alfa Romeo twin spark Novamotor engine mated to the ubiquitous Hewland gearbox. The vendor informs us that there are no known faults with the car which has formed part of a private collection for the past 8 years of its life. However, it has not been run for several years so will require some recommissioning before venturing out on the track. Being only two rungs down the ladder from the heady heights of Formula 1 this would be a wonderful, exciting and fast track day car for the discerning enthusiast, or simply an interesting addition to any gentleman’s collection at the modest guide price suggested today.

The inaugural Porsche Carrera Cup in the UK was in 2001 and it has been run annually since, featuring factory built race cars that are all finished to (exactly) the same specification, making it one of the most competitive, high profile ‘one make’ series in the world today. The ‘997’ version of the Porsche 911 GT3 was used by the Carrera Cup Championship from 2006 onwards. Costing £120,000 when new, it featured an improved package all round with over 420bhp now available, coupled to a Hollinger sequential 6-speed gearbox. The racing was close and the series blossomed both in the UK and Europe. This is a 2012 ‘Gen II’ version of the 997 cup car which was the ‘ultimate’ and final spec of that particular model before the 991 version was introduced a few years later. This particular car was campaigned

Sadly, pressing business commitments have meant that our vendor hasn’t had the time to enjoy this fabulous Porsche and it’s now being offered in superb condition at today’s sale. The engine has 28 hours total running time recorded, the gearbox has 8 hours and the drive shafts are reported to have 8 hours of life. The car also comes with 1 extra set of BBS wheels to complete the package.

1958 TRIUMPH TR3A

The TR3 was produced by the Standard-Triumph Motor Company from 1955 until 1957 and was the first British production car to have front disc brakes as standard. It was powered by the ubiquitous Standard 1991cc four-cylinder engine that now produced 100 bhp and the four-speed gearbox was available with optional overdrive which was electrically operated. Performance was more than adequate considering the basic cost of below a thousand pounds, with top speed just over a 100mph and 0-60 a spirited 10.8 seconds. Only one tenth of the production of over thirteen thousand remained in the UK as the TR3 sold very well in the USA and was a motorsport ‘stalwart’ in the Sports Car Club of America. This is a well known TR3A full-race car which has successfully competed in various race championships over many decades, including Thoroughbreds, Swinging 60s, TR Register, HSCC, Top Hat and Masters series. Powered by a 2198cc full steel engine lightened and balanced, 89mm forged pistons, steel crank, ‘Carillo’ rods, tubular exhaust manifold, and a lightweight steel flywheel. Fuelled by twin 45 DCOE Webers it revs to 7,600rpm, and we’re informed produces circa 170bhp at the rear wheels. The engine has just had a refresh ready for the sale and at the same time was fitted with a brand new Stage-3 cylinder head, a new radiator, and cooling pipes. The car was also given a geometry check and set up, and some pre-race prep,and this work was carried out by Jigsaw Racing.

The gearbox is a four-speed’dogbox’ with a twin plate clutch and a limited slip differential. The suspension includes Spax adjustable front dampers, upgraded rear lever arms, anti-roll bar, and lowered and stiffened coil springs which have been rebuilt by our vendor. The body is all GRP paneled with the exception of the steel doors. It’s fitted with a roll bar, a new seat, 5-point harness, extinguisher system, battery cut offs, and a foam filled fuel tank. It’s currently fitted with a transponder for lap timing. A small spares package will come with the car, including some spare steel body panels, wings, boot etc plus grp wings and bonnet. Two brand new wheels and tyres are also included, and its worth noting that the tyres currently fitted are also virtually new. This well respected TR is ready to compete in 2016 although, as with all race cars, a full check over is always advised before going out. It is tax exempt and does not require an MoT. This has been a very competitive car, and would make a perfect introduction to Hill Climbs, Sprints and Historic Racing, is eligible for Thoroughbreds (MGCC), Swinging 60s (CSCC), Top Hat/Masters and various other classic and historic series, including Equipe GTS and HSCC with minor modifications to conform to the different regs.

The Lotus Exige 260 Cup is a performance enhanced sports car developed for racing drivers by equally passionate racers. The renowned Lotus ride and handling team, at the Hethel test track, created capabilities that are jaw dropping, in the way that only a trackfocused Lotus can be.

The major units have done less than 20 hours running from new and the car currently runs a very high specification compared to the original 260 Cup cars. Included in this spec are AP front brakes and Tarox rears, a Motec M400 ECU with a Motec Mini dash, an Accusump, billeted aluminium uprights, tubular wishbones with Uniballs, upgraded intercooler and the engine itself is reported to produce 300 BHP.

It was only one year old when Steve McQueen chose to wear it in ‘Le Mans’, the famous car racing film and on the wrist of this major star it soon became an icon. The Heuer Monaco was reintroduced in 1998 and has proven to be just as popular now as it ever was. This example is a Limited Edition no. 64 of only 200.

1952 AC 2 LITRE

“In an AC, you are transported in the lap of luxury: Fine cloth, leather and polished walnut trim, comfortable seating, a general quietness that allows you to enjoy the sound of the smoothest of engines. Surprisingly sporty handling that makes driving a pleasure. Very wide doors for easy entrance or exit, that ‘clunk’ shut with a reassurance that confirms the superb build quality. Wonderful styling that attracts compliments from men, women, children and teenagers alike.” That was a contemporary description of the AC 2-Litre and says it all really. Produced in Surrey between 1947 and 1956, only 1,284 AC Two-Litre, two (and later four) door saloons were ever produced and there were even fewer Drophead Coupés and ‘Buckland’ tourers. The aluminiumpanelled body on a wooden frame was mounted on a conventional steel chassis with rigid axles front and rear with semi-elliptic leaf springs and, for the first time on an AC, hydraulic dampers. From 1951, the car was fitted with hydraulic brakes all round.

Registration: TBA Chassis Number: TBA Engine Number: TBA No Reserve

A 2-door saloon tested by ‘The Motor’ magazine in 1948 had a top speed of 80 mph (130 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 19.9 seconds. A fuel consumption of 23 miles per gallon was recorded and the test car cost £1,277 including taxes. Offered here is a rare 1952, AC-2 litre ‘barn find’ that’s been with our vendor for over 20 years – hidden away in a dark corner. Finished in Maroon with a Blue leather interior and 44,706 miles indicated on the distinctive speedometer, the car stands completely ‘square’ and appears sound and all there, although every aspect of the car will need to be restored with the possible exception of the interior which could potentially be reused. Time just hasn’t been available for our vendor to commence the restoration project, so today the car is offered in true barn find condition and at No Reserve. There is an active owner’s club for these cars and parts are more available than you might think for something so rare. When fully restored this car would be an excellent example of an elegant, early-fifties, sporting saloon and would be an exciting restoration project.

AC’s 1991cc engine was first offered by the company in the AC16 in 1922 however, by 1947, the engine boasted a power output of 74bhp which increased again in 1951 to 85bhp. With its light alloy block, cast iron cross-flow head, chain-driven overhead camshaft, and triple carburettors this six-cylinder engine was very advanced for its day.

When Ferrari introduced the Testarossa in Paris in 1984, it was regarded as possibly the best car Ferrari had ever built but, whilst the design was spectacular, it was not considered to be as sensually beautiful as numerous GT Ferraris of the past. As a complete departure, Pininfarina had designed a modern, aerodynamic and efficient body shape, immediately recognisable by its very distinctive side ‘strakes’ unlike anything else seen in the post-war period. The name ‘Testarossa’, literally Redhead, became synonymous with Ferrari sports racing cars in the 50s and 60s and was resurrected at the launch of this new model at the Porte de Versailles in 1984. Housing a 4.9-litre V12 engine producing 390bhp, the car was capable of a respectable 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 196mph. Produced between 1984 and 1991, some 7,177 Testarossas were made in total. Once again, time showed Pininfarina’s design to be durable, and throughout the eighties, the distinctive ‘strakes’ were echoed in other design disciplines from cars to kettles. However, although the design may have seemed to be ‘of the moment’, the Testarossa proved itself to be a well-built car, and despite its ‘Eigerrivaling’ list price, turned out to be Ferrari’s most successful model ever. Today it’s a design icon, symbolic of eighties culture, and despite a period in the “boondocks”, its popularity is returning rapidly. It’s not a surprise really since the Testarossa offers a rare package of serious performance, practicality, and reasonable comfort and although a little heavy at low speeds, its confidence-inspiring handling at high speed becomes almost addictive. First registered on the 6th March 1987, this left-hand drive, European market, Testarossa is finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero interior and contrasting Red carpets. It was delivered new to the Italian market through Milan dealer ‘CREPALDI’ and its first owner is recorded as

GEFINA S.p.A.. The early service history indicates that its first service was at CREPALDI on 28/4/87 and the next entry was considerably later, on 28/7/98 at GARAGE ZENITH in Switzerland with mileage unrecorded. A later owner presumably used the car between Monaco and Kent, as there is history of a cambelt change and annual service at Kent High Performance Cars on 18/1/03 (30,352km) and further services in Kent (27/04/03- 35,807km) and CAVALLARI- Monaco (25/06/04 - 37,961km). The car was imported from the South of France in early 2013 and went straight to Foskers Engineering for a replacement cambelt and annual service resulting in a bill for £2,800. A further £1, 500 was spent at Autoclass MK on 14/08/14 attending to some brake issues and repainting of spoiler due to stone chips. Our vendor acquired this Testarossa in 2015 to add to his collection, however, a change of circumstances now mean it is being offered for sale. In order to present the car in an absolutely sale-ready condition, our vendor left it with Keys Motorsport at Silverstone in early April, and they have carried out a further cambelt change (at 51,000km) with some additional work (invoice for £4700.00 in file). The wheels have been stripped and repainted and the Ferrari was then MoT’d, fully valeted, and is now ready for inspection. This immaculate Testarossa is accompanied by its cherished plate, D12 FER, and a box file containing a fairly comprehensive history, import documents, service records, invoices, the Ferrari tan leather book wallet, an original brochure(in German), injection manual, wiring diagrams, a parts list and various related publications. All in all – a super package.

2015 NORTON DOMINATOR SS NO. 50 OF 50

The original Dominator was a 500 twin designed by Bert Hopwood during the winter of 1947/48 to compete against Triumph’s Speed Twin. Bert had been on the Speed Twin design team at Triumph, and Norton hoped that he could bring some of that expertise to the table. They must have been pleased with his efforts as the Dominator sold well from its initial launch in mid-1949, and developments of this design set the pattern for Norton twins for the next 30 years. It’s now five years since Norton returned to production under the control of Stuart Garner, a youthful entrepreneur who’d made a fortune in fireworks before buying the ailing marque in 2008. His first model, the Commando 961, was a stylish retro roadster, conceived by an American engineer and Norton expert who had run out of money. Garner revamped the Commando prototype, brought it to market and has since been producing small but increasing numbers while expanding the business around it. The latest piece of brilliant motorcycle design to emerge from Norton is the Dominator SS. Over the past few years most major motorcycle manufacturers have introduced a model that has a ‘Retro’ look, and in most cases, it’s purely cosmetic, and certainly this new bike looks every inch the archetypal British ‘Café Racer’. However, like the closely related Domiracer, a nonroad-legal model of which just 50 units were built and quickly sold in 2015, it’s essentially a carefully engineered version of the Commando 961. Its 961cc, parallel-twin engine is identical to the Commando’s, complete with old-style pushrod valve operation. The modest maximum output of 80bhp is unchanged, although the limited-edition SS comes with a free-breathing exhaust system that adds a few horsepower. Additional design features of the SS include a polished yoke set and instrument surrounds, polished rear sprocket, billet foot

controls, carbon airbox, carbon tail end with Union Jack livery, carbon front mudguard, flyscreen and rear wheel mudguard. The tank is hand made in aluminium or painted steel with the option of a Union Flag or Chequer design. The exhaust is ‘Euro 3 standards’ in stainless with megaphone style silencers, it’s suspended on ‘Ohlins’, and the brakes are ‘Brembo Monobloc’. Anyone with an ‘engineering eye’ can look at this bike and instantly see that no expense has been spared in terms of material quality or design solutions. With only 50 of these special Dominators built, and with demand exceeding supply, Norton were naturally keen that they went to ‘good homes’. The company Principal retained No1/50 and our vendor was lucky enough to secure No50/50 which is the bike offered here. Our vendor was able to make a good case to Norton when he mentioned that his Grandfather, Edward ‘Ted’ Smith had owned a series of Nortons in the Thirties and was involved in racing them in the Isle of Man. In fact, in 1937, Ted had taken part in the Senior Manx Grand Prix on his 498cc Norton International, with some support from the factory, and had finished a commendable 21st with a best lap at 69.73mph! Other members of the family had owned Nortons at different times, so it was obvious that Nortons were in the family DNA. Dominator SS No.50, which has covered less than 10 miles, is now reluctantly for sale as a move to Switzerland is on the cards and space will be limited. This fabulous and rare motorcycle is not just a collage of sixties styling cues, but the living embodiment of a name that has stirred the soul of bike enthusiasts for over a hundred years – The Norton Motorcycle Company.

Designed by BMW Head of Design, David Robb, the R1200C was BMW’s attempt to tap into the Harley Davidson cruiser style market and was a significant departure from their previous endeavors. An advance promotional placement of the R1200C in the James Bond film “Tomorrow Never Dies”, ahead of the first deliveries to dealers was a real coup for the company’s Marketing Department and ensured a global audience. The BMW R1200C is a Harley-Davidson rival with German engineering. Like most cruisers, it sells on looks. The power characteristics of the R1200 are typical of large capacity twin cylinder cruisers where low down torque is more desirable than outright speed. Dynamically it’s better than many of its rivals thanks to quality engineering and light(ish) weight. With its low centre of gravity, lengthened wheelbase (1,650mm) and modern suspension, BMW’s radical cruiser has pushed road-holding standards, arguably, even higher.

1997 TVR CHIMAERA 4.0

The TVR Chimaera was launched at the British Motor Show in 1992 and, unusually for TVR, the ‘show’ car looked as if it was actually production-ready, and so it proved. At the time, TVR were basking in the adulation heaped upon the Griffith, and the Chimaera only served to reinforce the perception that here was a home-grown manufacturer capable of mixing it with the big boys. The ‘S’ series of cars were, at the time, still selling well, but with the advent of the Chimaera, TVR’s management knew that their immediate future was V8 powered. Both the ‘S’ and Griffith range were all-out sports models, and the Chimaera’s emphasis was slightly softer, but it was all fairly relative and in Blackpool parlance soft and TVR are not normally bedfellows. Legend has it that during the styling of the Chimaera, TVR boss Peter Wheeler’s dog, Ned, took a bite out of one of the foam models. Wheeler decided that he liked the new styling feature and incorporated the recesses to house the front indicators! The Chimaera’s underpinnings were based on the Griffith’s, which were in turn based on the Tuscan racer. Different dampers and an anti-roll bar were fitted, as was a more accommodating boot to reinforce the new car’s Grand Touring image. This 1997 TVR Chimaera 4.0 litre, registration number ‘P200 TVR’, was supplied new by Christopher Neil Ltd and first registered on the 1st of March 1997. It’s been enjoyed by its one registered owner from new and has covered a mere 33,000 miles, impressively supported by a comprehensive service history with some 13 stamps in the book (11 of these being carried out by Christopher Neil) and a history file with 16 MoT certificates present. Powered by the ubiquitous Rover 4.0-litre V8 engine producing 240 bhp, and with the car weighing only 1060kg, it is said to go extremely well. The vendor informs us that “it drives as it should with no apparent faults, and everything works as it should.

There are no known issues, no overheating, the gearbox and axle are silent and the engine is holding the makers oil pressure when hot”. Finished in ‘Put your Sunglasses on’ Red with similarly coloured carpets and a contrasting Grey leather interior this TVR is in excellent condition perhaps explained by the fact that it has been kept under cover in a heated garage all its life.The invoice file also contains the details of the car being ‘Waxoyled’ on 3/9/04 and 15/4/09. P200 TVR is presented to Auction with an MoT certificate valid until April 2017 which was issued with no advisories and was last serviced by Christopher Neil 17/11/15. The Chimaera is without doubt one of the best ways to access the joys of TVR ownership. Less intimidating and more thoroughly sorted than the Cerbera and Griffith models, it nonetheless offers 95% of the thrills with a tiny dash of practicality. If you are contemplating buying a TVR, you will doubtless be aware that they have one or two little peculiarities, and the best way to minimise potential pitfalls is to find a one-owner, low mileage car that has been well looked after, which is exactly what we have here. But, no matter, it’ll all become worthwhile as soon as the road opens up and you hear the growl of that big V8.

1958 AUSTIN HEALEY FROGEYE SPRITE

The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small, open sports car which was announced to the press in Monte Carlo on 20th May, 1958, just before the Monaco Grand Prix. It was intended to be a low-cost model that ‘a chap could keep in his bike shed’, yet be the successor to the sporting versions of the pre-war Austin Seven. The Sprite was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, which received a royalty payment from the manufacturers, BMC. It first went on sale at a price of £669, using a mildly tuned version of the Austin A-Series engine and it shared many other components from existing cars to keep costs down. The little Sprite quickly became affectionately known as the ‘Frogeye’ in the UK and the ‘Bugeye’ in the US, because its headlights were prominently mounted on top of the bonnet, inboard of the front wings. Originally the designers had intended that the headlights could be retracted, with the lenses facing skyward when not in use; but costcutting by BMC led to the flip-up mechanism being deleted. The front sheet-metal assembly, including the bonnet and wings, was a onepiece unit, hinged from the back that swung up to allow access to the engine compartment. The 43bhp, 948cc engine was upgraded with twin 1 1/8” inch SU carburettors.

To provide a more spirited drive, a fully rebuilt 1275cc A-Series engine has been slotted into place, with fast road cams, new pistons, valves, new radiator and fully rebuilt 1 1/4 SU Carbs, with breathing via a 3-branch manifold. Mated to the engine is a professionally rebuilt gearbox and differential, and with the added power, a disc brake conversion was decided upon. A new wiring harness, integrating the Lucas spot lamps with the main headlights (Lucas P700 ‘Tripods’) was fitted. All the original gauges were reconditioned, making the dashboard look sharp and the rest of the interior was trimmed in dark blue with a light blue piping to complement the colour of the paint and an Avanti steering wheel fitted. Nice period accessories such as a Speedwell pedal, BARC club badge and lap belts complete the look of this lovely ‘Frogeye’ Sprite. Having covered minimal mileage since the restoration, any potential buyers would be advised that a period of running-in of the engine would be advisable. Supplied with a recent MoT and a V5c, this beautifully finished Frogeye Sprite will certainly put a smile on your face and will charm onlookers wherever it goes.

Presented here is an original right-hand drive, home market supplied, Mk1 Austin-Healey Sprite despatched from the factory on 21st June 1958. The Heritage certificate in the file shows that the car left the production line fitted with toughened glass, a heater, rev counter, windscreen washers, front bumpers and a miles-per-hour speedometer. Our vendor, a chartered mechanical engineer, purchased the car two years ago as a classic in need of a full restoration. The body was totally stripped and media blasted, before having new floors, new sills and new 1/4 elliptical mounts. The shell was then returned to its original colour and painted professionally in Speedwell Blue.

1993 FERRARI 348 TB

Introduced at the 1989 Frankfurt Motor-show, the Ferrari 348 was a truly innovative design utilising a robot-welded sheet steel monocoque that not only broke with Maranello tradition but also brought considerable gains in torsional rigidity and dimensional accuracy. The newcomer was powered by a longitudinally mounted ‘quad-cam’ 32-valve 3405cc V8 (originally found in the 288 GTO) allied to fivespeed manual transmission. Developing some 300bhp and 238lbft of torque, the two-seater had need of its all-round independent suspension (with wishbones, springs, telescopic shocks, anti-roll bars and revised geometry), larger ventilated ABS disc brakes, self-locking ZF differential and rack-and-pinion steering. 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. A near performance match for its Testarossa ‘big brother’ (contemporary road tests spoke of 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds and a 171mph top speed), the two also shared a number of styling cues. Though, the similarity was unsurprising given that both models were clothed by Pininfarina and featured side-mounted radiators. The 348 was equipped with a dry-sump system giving it a lower centre of gravity and to prevent oil starvation at high speeds and during hard cornering. The oil level can only be accurately checked on the dip-stick when the engine is running due to this setup. The 348 was also fitted with adjustable ride height suspension and a removable rear sub-frame to speed up the removal of the engine for maintenance.

The suffix TB came from the transverse gearbox and closed ‘Berlinetta’ body style. After numerous improvements incorporated into later cars, including to the suspension geometry, the 348 was replaced by the F355 in 1994. EVO magazine’s Henry Catchpole wrote a very in-depth article in February 2015, where he drove and critiqued a Ferrari 308, 348, F355, 360 and F430 against a 458 Italia, saying about the 348TB ‘‘I’m excited because it’s instantly obvious this car has some of the best steering, possibly the best, that I have ever sat behind.’’ To see the full article follow: http://www.evo.co.uk/ferrari/458/12164/ferrari-458-italia-meets308-348-f355-360-and-f430/page/0/2 The car offered for sale here is a 1993 Ferrari 348TB, being just 1 of 130 UK-supplied RHD cars (Chassis: ZFFKA35C000092832). It was first registered on the 25th August 1993, making it one of the later cars, and hence benefitting from the factory-issued updates to the model as it evolved.

Ever since the 300SL of the mid-fifties, Mercedes-Benz has upheld its SL range of convertible GTs as the zenith of its engineering abilities and design flair. Introduced in 2002, after some five years in development, the R230 Series SL Roadster was certainly no exception to this tradition. Painstakingly modelled on a state-of-the-art supercomputer which enabled the designers to analyse every curve and line, it looked utterly sensational with an air of barely contained aggression that gave it huge road presence. Packed full of sophisticated electronic driver aids which made it immensely safe but also fun to drive, it was an instant hit with press and public alike and is widely considered to be the best-looking Mercedes for many years. The power-operated aluminium folding roof was particularly admired and would disappear into the top of the boot at the press of a button in just 16 seconds, yet still leave enough room underneath for 206 litres of luggage space.

Capable of ballistic pace when required, it also excelled as a sybaritic cruiser with 24mpg economy and there can be few finer ways to cross a continent. The only snag was the £75,000 price tag which restricted ownership to a privileged few. That original list price will not trouble the purchaser of today’s 2006, 500SL which has been enjoyed by two owners and only covered 4,787 miles from new. Indeed, our current private vendor has only covered 300 miles in this car since he bought it in 2008 to add to his collection, and it’s now offered for sale having recently been sent to his local Mercedes dealership for a service, health check and a fresh MoT prior to our auction. This is an enormous amount of motor car offered at a very attractive guide, and with the mileage indicated, is barely run in and ready for many more miles of powerful, enjoyable cruising.

First of the R230 range was the SL500 with its 5.4-litre V8 engine which produced 306bhp and a hefty 339ft lb of torque, all this power being delivered through a silky-smooth, 7-speed automatic gearbox. Even in a substantial body with lots of electronic toys and a folding alloy roof, it was capable of propelling the SL through 60mph in just 6 seconds with the (limited) top speed of 155mph comfortably achieved on the right stretch of road.

Barber entered and raced the car extensively for 5 seasons in top-level international sports car racing in the UK and Europe including the Nürburgring, Spa and Zandvoort. During this period it was driven regularly by Sir John Whitmore, the ‘Racing Baronet’, who famously broke the class lap record at Spa using CB23 while on his way to class victory in the Grand Prix GT Support Race of 1962. Other notable drivers who drove the car include Mike Beckwith and Bob Olthoff as well as Chris Barber himself. Lotus Elite 1009 has undergone a very high quality nut and bolt restoration by renowned restorer Ant Anstead at Evanta Motor Company as a racing car, and is not currently road registered. The restoration has been filmed for a forthcoming episode of the ‘For the Love of Cars’ series which has been so successful worldwide, something which can only add to this car’s remarkable provenance.

From 1961, the E-Type evolved and improved with every iteration from the original Series 1 Coupés and Roadsters, through the Series II cars of the late 1960s, until finally the Series III arrived in 1971, this 5.3 V12 only being available as a convertible or a ‘2+2’. The Series III was built on a slightly longer wheelbase with appropriate chassis modifications and larger, more effective brakes in the hope of coping with the turbine smooth, 272bhp delivered by the V12. The grille was enlarged and the beautiful lines were enhanced with flared wheel arches. It now had the ride quality that could match any of its GT rivals, and with power steering and the, newly optional airconditioning, it possessed the civility and approachability that would make it attractive to a slightly more reticent customer base. 7,297 Series III 2+2s are recorded as having been sold worldwide before production ceased.

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 5,500 cc, 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 - made a superb drivers car! This particular 550 Maranello has an interesting past history having been formerly owned by the great Sir Geoff Hurst MBE, the living legend of football and hat-trick scorer when England last won the World Cup in 1966. His name appears on the V5C as the immediate previous owner.

Registration: YTF 238T Chassis Number: 78100495G Engine Number: CC907780915417 Estimate (£): 30,000 - 40,000

The Lotus Esprit was launched at the 1975 Paris Auto Show and would evolve on a regular basis with its shape being influenced over the years by the pencils of three very well-regarded designers, Giugiaro, Peter Stevens, and Julian Thomson. Initially it was going to be called ‘Kiwi’ but eventually it followed with Lotus tradition of every model name starting with the letter ‘E’ and ‘Esprit’ was the result. It also followed in Lotus’ tradition with its sparkling performance owing much to the car’s “lightness”, or more correctly, lack of weight with the early cars weighing only 1000kgs. It was well received and noted for its fine handling and lively power output from its Lotus ‘907’ 2.0-litre 4 cylinder engine. The chassis was more than capable of handling various increases in power and by 1980, Lotus had introduced the 2.2-litre turbocharged Limited Edition in the colours of their Formula One sponsor, Essex Petroleum. However, a couple of years earlier in 1978, they had commemorated the success of the Lotus 79 and the World Championship for Mario Andretti by finishing some S2 Esprits in the distinctive Black and Gold of John Player Specials.

34. Anyway, Lotus are absolutely clear that it was the second car off the line and one of the two Show Cars.

Extensive research and correspondence with Lotus have established that this was one of two ‘Show’ cars used by Lotus at the October 1978 Motor Show and subsequently in their promotions. The Lotus ‘Certificate of Vehicle Provenance’ tells us that it was manufactured in early October 1978 as an S2 Commemorative Edition finished in Black (L15) and was later supplied to Station Garage in Taplow. At this point the car was known as ‘002’ and carried out its glamorous duties and magazine tests as ‘002’, however in those days the build numbers were generally allocated by the sales team and it’s believed that a mix up occurred and that number may well have been allocated to another customer or that the car had been forgotten as it was being finished and detailed by the ‘Show Team’, and so technically this car is Number

The substantial file accompanying the car contains a number of V5s, MOT certificates (25), a collage of invoices, an original Esprit brochure in mint condition, an immaculate copy of the John Player 1978 British Grand Prix Program, the Lotus CoVP, and a letter from Andy Graham at Lotus Cars confirming the significance of this particular car.

From the V5s we can see that this Esprit has been enjoyed by a number of owners and the history file bulges with dozens of invoices containing information about the ups and downs in the life of this iconic Lotus. There is way too much to detail here but suffice it to say that for the last 15 years the car appears to have been looked after by Christopher Neil and latterly by Paul Matty, both men of immense reputation within the world of Loti. Our vendor acquired this JPS Lotus in December 2012 to use and enjoy. He is the proprietor of a well-respected company that specialises in the restoration and preservation of Classic Porsches and is particularly fastidious about having his personal cars absolutely ‘right’. Naturally, he has a number of interesting cars to ‘play with’ and recently the Lotus has been scarcely used, so the time has come for someone else to enjoy it.

If you have always fancied a Black and Gold Esprit, it would be really cool to own a famous one.

1948 BUICK ROADMASTER CONVERTIBLE

“Buick’s the Buy” - “Look this eye-filling smoothie over and make note of the happy news. You bet! You can have DYNAFLOW on the Roadmaster.” (The Michigan Daily, 1948). In 1948, the fourth generation ‘Roadmaster’ Convertible was the Buick Motor Company’s top of the range. Powered by a 5.2litre (320cu in) Fireball 18, it was 18 feet long and weighed 2,100kg. The car was styled by the legendary Harley Earl and it was obvious from his reintroduction of chrome and the return to flamboyant ‘swoopy’ lines that the austerity of World War Two was becoming a memory. For the ‘48 model there were a number of changes including a ‘Series’ script on the front wings and the white ‘Tenelite’ steering wheel that had been used previously was traded in for a black one, in order to match the change from a two-tone wood grain instrument panel to a two-tone grey one with silver tone instruments. A new optional custom trim option was offered, consisting of cloth upholstery with leather bolsters with the robe cord cover and lower door panels trimmed in leatherette. Convertibles acquired power windows, seats and top as standard equipment. However, the biggest advancement was the introduction of ‘Dynaflow’, the first passenger car torque converter transmission. Optional on the Roadmaster in its first year, it was so popular that by the following year it was standard equipment.

This 1948 Roadmaster is fitted with the much hyped Dynaflow transmission and has been in our vendor’s possession since 1974, with the accompanying V5 informing us that it was imported into the UK from Belgium on the 21st of June 1954. As can be seen, it’s in classic ‘barn find’ condition and requires total restoration. The validity of such a large undertaking is aided by the fact that as a result of a ‘49 Roadmaster Convertible starring in the film “Rain Man” with Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise, Roadmaster Convertibles from the late forties/early fifties are now seriously ‘cool’. Consequently, a number of these, comparatively uncomplicated cars have been, or are being restored and there is now very good availability of parts and panels, which is good news as some of the interior and most of the chrome appears to be missing. This restoration is one for the brave, however, when finished this stylish American film star would be welcome anywhere.

1972 FORD ESCORT RS 1600

The original Ford Escort was introduced at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1968 and soon became a commercial success as an attractive small family saloon. Ford had, for a number of years, used active participation in motor sport as a means of getting their showroom doors swinging on a Monday morning, and the new Escort was to prove no exception. Popular at club level in every discipline of the sport, it was at International level that the name ‘Escort’ became synonymous with winning. 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 result and the ensuing acclaim prompted Ford to produce the famous Escort Mexico (1.6 L ‘Kent’engine) road version in honour of the rally car. One step up from the Mexico, the Escort ‘RS1600’ was developed using an engine that was essentially a detuned Formula 3 unit designated BDA (Belt Drive ‘A’ Series). Both the Mexico and RS1600 were built simultaneously at the now famous Ford Advanced Vehicle Operations (AVO) facility located at the Aveley Plant in South Essex. As well as higher performance engines and sports suspension, these models featured strengthened bodyshells, making them ideal for rallying. Even today, Mark I Escorts are still very popular in the Historic Rally scene with their reputation for a great balance of power and handling, making them true driver’s cars. The BDA engine emits a distinctive and appealing ‘growl’, which can be heard for quite a distance when the vehicle is being driven hard. Estimates suggest that only around 1,137 RS1600s were produced in total.

The car offered for sale today was first registered in the UK on 11th February 1972 and was purchased by the current owner to form part of his collection. He has kept the car in a dehumidified garage and cherished this extremely collectable road-going example. The speedometer is reading 3,490, which we believe is the total mileage covered since this car underwent a ground up restoration. There are bills in the history file from renowned marque expert Andy Stapley Motorsport who has maintained the car, and there are also dynamometer testing sheets that show an impressive 167.8 bhp @ 6200 rpm. According to a number of sources, we understand there are less than 50 RS1600s registered or on SORN in the UK. The vast majority of these have been extensively raced, rallied or exported and have lived hard lives. As a result, it is very unusual to find a road car finished to such a high standard. The Le Mans Green paintwork is superb with excellent shut lines and has been completed to a very high standard. The interior is completely standard and correct, and the engine bay is spotless. This immaculate 1972, RS1600 sits ‘all-square’ and presents really well in its period-correct, bright green. It’s ‘on the button’, has a fresh MoT and is crying out to be used.

The Datsun 240Z was unveiled to the press in October 1969 and made its public appearance a few days later at the Tokyo Motor Show. To say it was well-received would be an understatement with its stylish modernity, well set out interior and lusty six cylinder engine. It was effectively a modern Healey, virtually capturing the sports car market worldwide and eventually production at the Shatai’s Hiratsuka plant could not keep up with the demand for the rakish new 240Z. Offered here is a one-owner, 56,000 miles, left-hand drive Datsun 240Z in remarkably original condition with a very evocative history from new. Finished in Monte Carlo Red with a Black interior, it was purchased new in Georgia, USA in May 1971 by its sole owner Richard Friese, following a combat tour of Vietnam. It remained in his possession, rarely leaving his hometown until arriving in the UK, having been bought directly from him in 2014. There is a fascinating letter of authenticity from him confirming the car’s history and his 43 years of ownership of this rare Series 1 coupé. This faithful 240Z had accompanied him from his days as a youthful recruit at Robins Air Force Base, to his re-assignment to The Pentagon and through every aspect of his eventful life until his retirement in 1999 and beyond.

1936 SINGER NINE LE MANS SPORTS SPECIAL

In the early 1930s, Singer & Co. Ltd.(later to become Singer Motors) was in a reasonably secure financial position although lagging a distant third behind rivals Austin and Morris in numbers produced, hampered mainly by a lack of factory space. The 8hp Junior was selling well, but in a fairly dramatic move in 1932, they launched the much more sporting Nine using a 972cc, 26.5bhp version of the overhead cam engine in an entirely new chassis with hydraulic brakes. A tentative sortie into endurance racing using a Nine Sports resulted in a respectable 13th. place at Les Vingt-Quatre Heures du Mans in 1933 and the decision was made to capitalise on this new international success by introducing a new model called the “Le Mans”. This version was powered by a 6 cylinder overhead camshaft engine of 1493cc fed by twin one and a quarter inch SU carburettors and featured a fourspeed close(r) ratio gearbox, dry plate clutch, spiral bevel final drive, four wheel hydraulic brakes and half elliptic front and rear springs with friction shock absorbers. Body changes included the addition of an externally mounted 12-gallon slab fuel tank, fitted with a quick action filler cap and twin rear mounted spare tires to complete the competition look. Clothed in a very attractive body with a racing fuel filler and twin spare wheels, and looking every inch the “little racer”, the Le Mans proved irresistible in the mid-thirties to a public enjoying a rapidly improving standard of living, becoming interested in the now fashionable sport of motor racing and to whom the black days of World War 1 were a distant memory and the next conflict only a glimmer on the horizon.

Rally based around the Berlin games of that year. Three Gold Medals were awarded, one for the driver, one for the co-driver and one for the car! This Singer Nine Le Mans Speed Special was purchased approximately forty years ago by our late vendor. The owner was the well-regarded motorcycle ace Alf Peatman and regular Silverstone Auctions followers may remember him as the owner of the incredibly rusty Ferrari Dino and the white project Aston Martin DBS we sold in 2014. Apparently, this little Singer had sat at the rear of his local garage for many years and was about to be scrapped, when Alf bought it for a few pounds in the 1970s and set about restoring the car completely. He was not one to use his cars an awful lot and, on completion of its restoration it was never registered and sat in his garage alongside the Ferrari and Aston until he passed away in 2014. At this point, the family intended to keep the car, however, a change of plans means it is now being offered for sale. Since 2014 the car has been lightly recommissioned. The engine runs and the car will drive under its own steam, however, it’s essentially just as it left its 40-year resting place and will need further inspection and re-commissioning to make it roadworthy and presentable once again. An excellent basis for a full restoration or a sympathetic preservation as this car has a wonderful patina and a great story to tell.

Unique is a word that is often incorrectly used but the Singer Nine Le Mans is unique in that it is the only car, ever, to have won an Olympic Gold Medal when the legendary Betty Haig won the 1936 Olympic

This rare UK delivered SM was first registered on 20/08/75 to Peter Borender of Chipping Sodbury and he was the car’s custodian until May 2000. He appears to have been particularly fastidious about keeping records, as there are a considerable number of invoices in the history file relating to his expenditure during his 25 years of ownership. All the initial work was carried out by Citroen in Slough including full services on 13/6/78 (18,000 miles) and 14/1/82 (36,000 miles) and there are a dozen invoices totalling just over £2,000 from Citroen up until November ‘83. On the 8th of May, 2000 our Citroen came into the possession of its second owner, a Mr. Murphy from Kendal and he in turn sold the car to our vendor in October last year. During Mr. Murphy’s tenure it appears the car was in possession of an MOT most of the time with a couple of periods of SORN. The most recent MOT whilst the car was owned by him was on 29/07/15 with a mileage of 67,026. There are only two invoices for this period (in the file) from Dave Ashworth Citroen in Blackpool amounting to £4,000. Our vendor purchased this SM with the intention of keeping it for family use and decided to go through the car completely until it was exactly the way he wanted it. Immediately after his purchase in December the SM spent some time with ‘Export 56’ who fitted a new windscreen and at the same time “Stripped the paint from the roof, bonnet, N/S wing and door, etch primed, repaired and prepared the surfaces, and painted those panels blending it in to the existing paint.” Other minor areas of body work were addressed at the same time. The car was finished to the appropriate standard and registered in his wife’s name and returned to the road on 11/12/2015. Shortly afterwards on 29/12, five new tyres and a new battery were fitted. In February of this year

the car was left with marque specialist Andrew Brodie in North London whose brief was to examine every aspect of the car and assess what it would take to return it to as near ‘perfection’ as was achievable. Since then Andrew Brodie Engineering have been working through a long list of jobs over £11,000 spent, the details of which are in the file. In late March the entire interior was replaced with a Black Leather one which interestingly had come from the car once belonging to Mike Hailwood. Apparently John Surtees had given him the new SM after he had won the 1972, F2 Championship and Mike had decided to replace the leather interior with, presumably, cloth. Perhaps Mr. Hailwood had seen enough of Black Leather to last him a lifetime. A change of plans, however, now mean that this amazing car is being offered for sale. In addition to a large number of MOT Certificates, (including the latest on 14/04/2016 at 67,417 miles), the V5C, and the large invoice pile, the car’s box file contains a1972 UK Market SM Press Release, an original 1972 Sales Brochure, a ‘Thoroughbred and Classic Cars’ 1974 Road Test, a repair manual and some photographs of the recent bodywork restoration. These were very advanced, innovative motor cars when they were first introduced and are now difficult to find and sought after. They are inevitably complex and require specialists to carry out maintenance, so finding one that has been gone through ‘stem to stern’ is a rare opportunity.

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 anti-lock 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.

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’ is in progress and has been prepared by Toni Auto of Maranello at a cost of €2,580 as shown by the invoice in the history file. The certificate will follow from Ferrari in due course. 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.

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 pre-production cars that were released to Ferrari dealers.

1971 ASTON MARTIN DBS VANTAGE

Introduced at the October 1967 Motor Show, the DBS was the successor to the famed Aston Martin DB6, although the two ran concurrently for three years. Styled in-house by William Towns, the aluminium-bodied four-seater had a sharper, more Italianate look than the curvaceous DB6 but still exuded road presence and looks mighty impressive even today. Longer, wider and more luxurious than the DB6, the DBS employed a platform-type chassis with independent suspension all round: wishbone and coil spring at the front, De Dion with Watts linkage at the rear. Autocar judged it superior to the preceding DB6 in many areas, offering four full-sized seats in addition to transformed handling and road holding courtesy of the new suspension and standardised power steering.Presented here is a 1971 Aston Martin DBS Vantage, chassis #5701/R, with a manual gearbox and one only 70 RHD Vantage specification cars built by the factory, and is offered from a small private collection. Believed to have left the factory painted red, the early history of the car is not present but the first MoT, from August 1977, records the mileage as 46,655 miles. An invoice from renowned marque specialist, Robin Hamilton, dated October 1980 made out to a Mr S. Herbert of StokeOn-Trent, documents bodywork repairs that were carried out at that time. These included stripping the paint on the left front wing & door, removal of rear wing panels and air vent to gain access to inner panels to remove rotten metalwork, strip down the left-hand door and re-weld and fit new metal, refit of door and repaint front & rear wings - all this work was done for the tidy sum of £970! Further invoices from the aforementioned specialist documents cylinder head work and engine tuning, for which the carburettors had to be rebuilt before a rolling road test was carried out, resulting in an indicated 160 bhp at the wheels.

In August 1988, the car was purchased by a Mr R. Foy of Romford from Autoclass Classic Cars of Finchley, London. A letter from the proprietor of the above-mentioned classic car dealer states that the odometer was reading 31,645 miles at the time, but in fact, the total mileage was 131,645 miles which correlates with the host of MoT certificates in the file. Before Mr Foy took delivery of the car, both floor pans were replaced and the car was given a full respray in Storm Red two-pack paint. In 1990, the Stratton Motor Company rebuilt the cylinder head, replaced a faulty piston and fitted all new pistons rings, along with fitting new big-end shells. At this time the carburettors were rebuilt and the engine re-assembled at a cost of £2,582. A Mr M. Williams of Holywell was to be the next keeper of this DBS Vantage from February 1994 to 2014. Under his stewardship, he kept a log every time the car received attention and in 1998 an unleaded fuel cylinder head conversion was carried out by the Aston Workshop. Presumably off the road for a couple of years, the log shows the Aston was back in action in 2003. Our vendor then purchased the car in 2014 and has used the Aston sparingly, attending the odd local classic car show and studiously avoiding wet weather. Now offered for sale and finished in Purple with a Cream interior, this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a rare manual DBS Vantage that comes supplied with a UK V5c and an MoT. The perfect candidate for a full restoration, or simply a car to drive and enjoy, the choice is yours....!

Manufactured in 1965 and first registered in April 1966, this gorgeous, original, home market RHD Series 1 FHC is offered from long-term ownership having been cherished by our vendor since 1995. The history of this particular E-Type is varied to say the least, and can be traced back to 1978 when a Mr. P. Shakeshaft of Surrey owned the car. In 1980 it appears that the car was being stored in a barn at the Cross Keys Pub in Llandfyllian, as security against a loan to his brother, however, in 1989 the property had to be demolished and the car was sold for the princely sum of £7,000 to a Mr. A Richards. Having languished for almost a decade, the car by this stage was starting to look rather sorry for itself, and Mr. Richards commenced a comprehensive restoration, logging approximately 900 hours of work which appears to have been carried out at a meticulous level. The bodywork was taken back to bare metal and any rusty areas were addressed and lead-loaded as required. The front chassis frame was replaced as were all the suspension joints and mountings.The mechanics of the car were, of course, attended to at this time with the engine and differential being fully rebuilt, whilst the gearbox was checked and deemed in good order. A new bonnet was fitted and the wheels were replaced with brand new sparkling chrome wires. All the new parts were purchased from Martyn Robey. Once this mechanical work had been completed, all the brightwork was refinished and the car’s original Dark Green colour was replaced with many coats of Carmen Red using high specification Dupont paint applied with the ‘Pressure-pot’ system, as per the factory.

Mr. Richards would keep the car until 1995 when it was sold to our vendor, a director of Top Gear in its heyday throughout the 1990s. It was as a result of encouragement by the presenter, Quentin Willson, which ultimately cemented his decision to buy an E-Type. After searching the length and breadth of the UK, our vendor finally settled on the car offered here and, of course, it was promptly featured in the show later that year with Jeremy Clarkson at the helm. The car would become quite the TV star over the following years being used in “The Car’s the Star” where (with some artistic license) it was seen to be approaching the famous 150mph top speed. E-Type ownership has been infectious for our vendor and the car is seldom unused, being driven as intended whenever possible. It’s occasionally allowed to stretch its legs, being treated to Goodwood and Castle Combe track days along with the odd blast up Prescott Hill. Of course, to be driven enthusiastically it needs to be in excellent mechanical order and has, indeed, benefited over the years with uprated brakes, more efficient cooling, a new clutch, new wishbones, electronic ignition, and a wealth of other new parts. Presented with a fascinating history file, this car is a very honest example indeed. Whilst it may not be a perfectly restored matching numbers example, nor finished in its original colour for that matter, this fantastic E-type is a true driver’s car and embodies the essence of sporting Jaguars. Equally loved as it is used, we certainly hope the new owner can achieve as much enjoyment as our vendor has in his 21 years of ownership.

1987 FORD SIERRA RS 500

Just 500 extra-special examples of the 150mph, Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth went on sale in Britain on August 1st.1987. This more powerful ‘Evolution’ model was introduced to allow Ford to develop the original production run of 5,000 needed to allow the Sierra RS Cosworth to be homologated for International Touring Car Racing in ‘Group A’ and Aston Martin at Tickford were assigned to convert the 500 cars. Work included upgrading engines to 224bhp (with the potential to exceed 400bhp with extra boost in race trim), and numerous aerodynamic enhancements including a 30mm lip spoiler applied directly to the rear edge of the tailgate to increase rear downforce. New and larger cooling ducts for both the brakes and the engine intercooler were added at the front in addition to a larger and more effective chin spoiler, known as a ‘splitter’. The car was only available through 90 nominated RS specialist dealers and was sold for the price of £19,950. This stunning Ford RS500, Tickford Build no. 296, is finished in the classic colour combination of Black with an attractive Grey Cloth interior. It was first registered on 30/09/1987 to Gordon Nash of Ferndown and it remained his property until sold to a private collector (our vendor) on 04/02/1999 with an indicated mileage of around 19,550 miles. Since then, it has covered less than 100 miles in his possession and has formed part of his collection for over 17 years languishing happily in his heated showroom and started and moved around on a regular basis. He has never actually registered the car and the V5 shows Mr. Nash as its only owner.

Prior to the sale, on 13/5/16 with an indicated mileage of 19,589, the car has benefited from a full service, including cambelt, by Tremona Garage, the Ford RS specialists in Southampton and our vendor has told us that their telephone number is 02380775829 and his contact, Richard, knows the vehicle well and would be happy to talk to any interested parties. The service records are complete and up to date and are in the car’s history file along with MoTs, the original purchase invoice, details of the performance upgrade and correspondence from the Sierra RS500 Register. The indicated current mileage of 19,640 is warranted and the spare wheel has never been used. For a number of reasons, RS 500 Cosworths can often have a bit of a chequered past, however, E798 RRU is a very honest example with a completely transparent history, in excellent original condition and should not be missed.

In 1996, the car was sent to Hendy Ford Motor Sport where it was fitted with a new exhaust system and a “Performance Package” which included F1 Injectors, Group A Actuator, chip and 3-Bar Map sensor hardware. The original invoice can be found in the extensive history file.

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. 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 the 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. In common with most Ferraris launched in the 1980s, the Mondial received several updates until it was discontinued in 1993. The first iteration was dubbed Mondial 8 and was sold for roughly three years, between 1980 and 1982. Production ended at 703 units, about 12-percent of the total Mondial run in 13 years.

First shown in London at the October 1966 Earls Court Motor Show, the Jensen Interceptor had a model life of three years, being superseded in October 1969 by the Interceptor II. Only 1,024 of the original cars were built and, of these 923 were right-hand drive automatics. Jensen started as a coachbuilding firm in the early 1930s, and after a period putting their distinctive bodies on other manufacturers products, the company started producing their own sports cars. Oddly enough for a company experienced in both design and coachwork, the Interceptor was designed by Carrozzeria Touring in Milan and the early cars were bodied by Vignale in Turin, however production returned to West Bromwich before too long. The Interceptor has become one of the classic GT cars, favoured by Royalty and Rock Stars alike, and known to be smooth, quiet, very refined and easy to drive. This rare right-hand drive, automatic, Mk.I Interceptor is an original UK car first registered on 5th March 1968. The car remained in the UK until 2007 when it was exported to the continent where it currently resides with our Belgium vendor and former owner of Raidillon Watches.

At this stage in the car’s life, it was finished in a non-original shade of Red and so the choice was made to fully strip the incorrect paint and return it to its original colour of Crystal Blue. Whilst the car was being painted, all of the brightwork was removed and refinished, and when returned to the newly resprayed body the results were simply stunning. The wonderful Italian-styled cockpit presents very well with what, at first glance, appears to be the original interior showing only nominal signs of wear. While the car was previously UK registered, it’s currently registered in the EU so it will have a NOVA identity applied for at the time of sale, and will be accompanied by its history file containing many past invoices. A striking blend of Anglo-Italian with a dash of Americana under the bonnet, the Interceptor Mk.I certainly ticks all of the boxes.

It has clearly lived a much-cosseted life and whilst it was still in excellent condition, the decision was taken by our vendor to treat the car to a sympathetic restoration in 2014/15 at a cost of approximately €30,000. The car was subject to a mechanical overhaul with the fitting of many new remedial parts in the engine bay including a new radiator with dual fans to cure the occasional overheating issues of the early cars. The engine was also partly dismantled and checked for any damage or wear.

1958 AC ACE BRISTOL


The AC Ace first appeared at Earls Court in 1953 and epitomised a new era of British post-war sports car production. The owners of AC, Charles and Derek Hurlock, along with AC agent, Ken Rudd, transformed the company’s reputation by taking a racing special and putting it into production, with notable stylistic influences from Italian sports cars of the era. The result was a car that delivered both on the road, and particularly on the track thanks to the input of racing chassis designer John Tojeiro. Tojeiro employed the same simple tubular laddertype chassis with an aluminium body that he had used in his earlier specials. However, the Ace boasted all-round independent suspension by transverse springs (the first British sports car to do so), ensuring superb handling with minimal body roll and plenty of feedback. Such was the success of the Ace chassis, it became the foundation for the mighty Shelby Cobras with over three times the power of the original 105bhp, Weller designed, six-cylinder engine. The outdated AC unit eventually made way for the more refined Bristol straight-six, which had evolved from the pre-war BMW 328. The Bristol engine was far more suited to racing, as demonstrated with some success by Cooper, and in its standard form developed 128bhp at 6000rpm. Consequently, it is the Bristol-engined Ace that is most sought after by collectors. Chassis number BEX406 is a Bristol-engined Ace originally delivered to British Columbia Sports Cars in Canada on 3rd February 1958. According to the AC Owner’s Club, the original colour was Svecia Red with a Black leather interior and the car has recently been returned to this original colour scheme. By all accounts, the car was mainly set up for road use and had lived an easy life in Canada prior to repatriation to England in 1990. The car was discovered and purchased at this time, by respected AC specialist, Brian Classic, and he shipped the car back to England and had it converted to right-hand drive. It was purchased by a Mr C. Cadogan-Rawlingson of Suffolk, an AC Owner’s Club member, in 1991 and he was its custodian for 18 years. A Mr O’Connell acquired BEX406 in 2009 and had the engine, clutch and gearbox rebuilt by engine specialist Nick Finburg. This was carried out in order to compete in the 2010 Spa 6 hours, Dijon-Prenois and Sir Stirling Moss Trophy for pre-1961 sportscars at the Silverstone Classic. In 2013, the car was

purchased by its current owner, who has enjoyed it on road-rallies and at the 60th anniversary ACOC race at Silverstone in 2014. Works carried out in the last 500 miles have included a suspension rebuild, and a complete overhaul of the rear axle, brakes, and steering amongst other mechanical components. The aluminium, foam-filled, fuel tank holds 45 litres and feeds the fuel through a high-performance fuel pump, regulator and filter. The cooling features a deep core aluminium radiator with a Kenlowe thermostatic controlled fan and Evans waterless coolant. The ignition has been supplied by IN Racing and features a competition programmed electronic distributor. A new starter motor and alternator have been commissioned in the style of a period dynamo and all of these recent improvements have resulted in a car that inspires real confidence when driven. Additional features include a removable roll bar and full harness seat belts, both FIA approved, electrical kill switch, rear fog light, Brantz rally timer, calibrated gauges, good Avon tyres, all weather equipment and a removable hard top. One of the most appealing features of this AC Ace is its originality. The engine is the original ‘D’ series unit and is mated to its original gearbox with the all-important overdrive. Being one of the later Bristol engines, this car produces 128bhp compared to 125bhp in earlier models. A test on the engine in 2014 revealed very healthy compression in all 6 cylinders and this test report is available for viewing in the history file. The bodywork features original body stampings on the bonnet and boot and overall the chassis and body retain excellent patina. Supplied with an MSA Historical Technical Passport valid for racing, hill climbs and rallies, this charming Ace is eligible and would be welcomed at some extremely prestigious racing events around the world. Alternatively, the car is equally happy being exercised on country roads. The AC Ace Bristol is a car that rightfully deserves its place in the history books as grandfather to the legendary AC Cobra, and this exciting example offers a glorious opportunity to turn history into racing, rallying or every-day reality.

Not long ago different countries made ‘different’ cars. This simple automotive fact is best demonstrated in the inexpensive vehicles built to put wheels under the masses. In the United States, there was the Model A. Big, uncomplicated and cheap. More like road-going tractors than proper cars. They somehow mirrored the American spirit with their Puritan appearance and ‘blacksmith’ approach to engineering problems. Great Britain had its Austin 7. Small, with quick steering to make it nimble on twisting English lanes. They were scaled down versions of contemporary big cars—it wouldn’t do to be seen driving something just up from a motorbike and sidecar, which speaks volumes about the very nature of the English character. Pre-war Germany had a number of People’s Cars, long before the KdF-Wagen (Beetle). Though these top sellers were never as small as the 500 as they actually did have room for a family and luggage. In 1936 you had the DKW ‘F’ Series cars, the Opel Kadett, Ford Eifel and Adler Trumpf Junior, just to name a few. However, they were all Germanic in style and execution and reflected the personality of German citizens at the time. And then there was Italy in 1933! A country in which more people knew the names of the entire Alfa-Romeo team than senior members of the government. What was needed was a car that was all things to all men. A baby sports car for a budding Grand Prix driver. Something to replace a rich farmer’s donkey for that rare trip into town. An object to be hungered after by every factory worker. A possession for which young couples would work six days a week in a distinctly un Latin-like frenzy. It was an impossible set of specifications around which to build a car. But engineer Dante Giacosa almost filled them.

Giacosa’s approach to the problem was radical and conservative at the same time. Economy demanded a tiny car as both petrol and steel were expensive in pre-war Italy. The young Italian engineer marked out a rectangle 6 1/2 feet long by 3 1/2 feet wide as the minimum amount of space required for two (Italian) people, their luggage, and the necessary machinery to take it all down the road at over 50 mph. If the new little car was to be at all successful it had to have a ride at least equal to contemporary larger cars. This called for two small bucket seats mounted in the very centre of the car. With a wheelbase inches shorter than the average modern bath, the centre was the only place, if driver and passenger were to be protected from the combination of Italian roads and Italian verve behind the wheel. All of this was pretty radical for 1933. Launched in 1937, the resulting Fiat 500 had a fantastic run remaining in production until being replaced by the familiar rear-engined 500 in 1955. The little car, with its 569cc four-cylinder engine and four-speed gearbox, soon earned the nickname Topolino, literally “Little Mouse”, for its ear-like headlamps on the front wings. Offered here is a 1939 Fiat 500 Topolino, No Reserve, ‘Barn find’ in the truest sense of the words. Our vendor has stored this car since 2004 but never had the chance to get round to commencing its restoration. There is a V5 with this car and the registration number is ‘TAS 143’. This little Fiat is a little further ‘down the road’ than the other prerestoration cars offered from the same collection, however, we understand parts are available and the diminutive nature of the vehicle makes it an approachable project on one of Italy’s most beloved cars.

The car offered here is a 1965 Jaguar E-type Series 1 4.2-litre fixed head coupé. This right-hand drive, UK-car is a fully matching numbers example (supported by inspection, corresponding paperwork and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate). The car also comes with its original buff logbook and information sent by the DVLA, to support its history. Also, in its history file are numerous invoices for work carried out and MoT certificates going back to 1973. It was manufactured on the 15th March 1965 and distributed by Henlys Ltd. of London on the 25th March 1965. The car was first registered on the 7th April 1965 with the private plate ‘773 KTA’, acquired from Devonshire County Council. It proudly still wears that registration today, having never had any other assigned to it. The car was originally painted Opalescent Silver Blue with Navy French Blue interior; again, a combination it still sports today. 773 KTA has always resided in the UK and has benefitted from having diligent previous owners, all of which have maintained and improved the car significantly over the years. It’s believed that the car was in regular use until around 1989 when unknown circumstances meant that it was dry stored for approximately 20 years. Following this period, it was sold to a prominent car collector who commissioned a full nut & bolt restoration by marque specialists, Lanes Cars of Collingwood. This extensive work was completed in 2011 and was fully documented with a photographic record. It shows every stage of the works undertaken, including the complete refurbishment and rebuild of the bodyshell which was taken back to bare metal. It addition, the engine was fully rebuilt including new pistons, con-rods, chains and valve guides, with the head suitably upgraded to run on unleaded fuel. The rear crank seal was upgraded, whilst the rear differential was fully

rebuilt and the rear axle carrier was completely refurbished. Additional upgrades also included the fitting of an ‘E Fabrication’ 5-speed gearbox (whilst importantly retaining the original 4-speed gearbox with the car for preservation of matching numbers status), adjustable shock absorbers, a larger cored radiator, an oil cooler, an electric fan, ‘Cooper Craft’ 4-pot callipers, a six branch stainless steel manifold and exhaust, competition chrome wire wheels, electronic ignition, seat-belts and airconditioning. Also fitted is a lifetime tracker device, merely requiring a change of name and a discretely installed modern audio/sat-nav unit. Following its completion, the collector used the newly restored car only sparingly, covering just a few hundred miles, before a move abroad meant it was sold to our vendor in 2013. Having always wanted a classic Jaguar, he appreciated what this particular car had to offer, however, he too has only used the car when time and health would allow, only covering an additional 350 dry miles approximately. Thus, since its full restoration, the car has covered just 647 miles whilst also being garaged to exacting standards. Regardless of not having driven the car that often, our vendor has greatly enjoyed his ownership and being part of its story, whilst deriving much satisfaction from fastidiously maintaining it. Not surprisingly, the car passed a MoT in May 2016 with ease. 773 KTA is a very special car. It offers a new owner the very ‘best of both worlds’ - a Series 1 E-type with matching-numbers, a clear lineage of ownership and history - but also with a level of restoration and improvement that is hugely reassuring and confidence-inspiring. This car is ready to be fully enjoyed and appreciated.

The story of the E-Type requires little introduction, however, what perhaps may need some explanation is the position in the market of the very early cars and their importance to collectors and marque enthusiasts alike. In common with Works of Art, Furniture, Philately, Fine Wines and all the other things people collect, the rarest and best quality items tend to attract collector’s interest and inevitably, the harder they are to find, the more expensive they can become. Should there be a number of well-heeled collectors chasing a particular painting, for example, then the result can be a serious clash of egos and wallets. This is equally true of Classic Cars and the E-Type is a perfect example. The most sought after of all the E-Types are the first 92 RHD cars produced and these are easily distinguished by their outside bonnet locks. Fifty-six of this first batch were supplied in July 1961 to Jaguar dealerships to be used as demonstrators and they were expressly forbidden to sell them until that September. With most of the first 20 cars produced being allocated for competition use, the very first road cars are considered to be the ‘Holy Grail’ of E-Types, and arguably of all collector’s cars. Chassis #062 is a rare opportunity to enjoy the thrill of ownership inherent in one of these special rare early cars. Chassis #62 was distributed to Scotland via Henleys of London as a demonstrator for potential customers in Edinburgh and the surrounding area on 14th July 1961. It was later sold in the first week of September to and first registered on the 8th September 1961 with the registration number HSS 124. Its first owner Mr I Simpson of North Berwick owned the car until 1978 when we can see from a sales invioce it was sold to a Mr D Russel of Edinbrough who then later sold the car to Mr A stwart in Fife before our vendor purchased the car from a gentleman in Edinbrough. It was destined to remain in to Scotland, where it still currently resides with our vendor the just the 5th owner. Number 62 is extra special in the history of E-types in that it has spent a very quiet life in Scotland living under the radar and having had just five, geographically close, owners from new. The result of this sheltered life is that until now, its whereabouts have been a mystery to historians and it was one of only a few of the original 92 cars that hadn’t been found. We are pleased to be offering this car on the open market for the first time, finally placing it correctly in the timeline of the E-type.

Much like many of its sister cars, #62 has over the years lost some of its distinguishing early features, which has partly helped to hide the significance of this car until now. The car most improtantly retains its orginal matching numbers engine including matching cylinder head. However while missing some of the more obvious early features the car retains not only the much revered ‘flat floor’ but in fact a whole myriad of other specific very early details including the split-link throttle linkage, review mirror amongst other little ques. From studying the comprehensive accompanying history file, the car appears to have been subject to both major and minor restoration works. In the mid to late 1970s by its orginal owner, it appears to have benefitted from a significant restoration both mechanically and bodily. At this point, we can see from accompanying invoices, that what we believe was the original ‘outside lock’ bonnet was replaced with a slightly later one by its owner at the time. Originally finished in Sherwood Green with a Suede Green Interior and French Grey roof, it was during this restoration that the car was repainted Carmen Red, the colour which it wears today and re-trimmed with its current lovely black interior. It was again sympathetically restored in the 1990s, which included another full engine rebuild. More recently under its current ownership, the car has been subject to yet more renovation to safeguard this rare car for the future. This considerate restoration took place over a period of 18 months and consisted of much bodywork including a further repaint in its current Carmen red. Presented with #62 is an excellent history file that dates back to 1975, and of course, includes a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The history file details much of the cars life in Bonnie Scotland through invoices from the 1970s to the present day. Possibly the definitive Jaguar connoisseur’s dream collectable, this lovely E-Type is in fabulous yet not over-restored condition, and represents a very special opportunity to own one of the first 92 at an attainable price, with further scope to return the car to exactly the way it was in July 1961 once again, and in doing so adding your name to the annals of Jaguar history.

1974 FORD ESCORT RS2000 MKI

Registration: OGS 396M Chassis Number: BFATPT00358 Engine Number: PU28538 Estimate (£): 28,000 - 32,000

The Escort RS2000 was the last car to be introduced to Ford’s ‘Advanced Vehicle’ range in June of 1973 and dovetailed nicely with its performance almost comparable to the more complex RS1600, but with the reliability and ease of maintenance of the Mexico. The car used the same Type 49 bodyshell as the Mexico and RS1600, however, there was a new engine in use at Ford, the 2-litre overhead cam, 100bhp, ‘Pinto’ design, which seemed, on paper, ideal for the RS. Fords then had the major problem of persuading the new bulky Pinto engine to fit into the engine bay, which was something it had never been designed to do. The only way of achieving this was by discarding the engine driven cooling fan and replacing it with a thermostatically controlled Kenlowe unit. The most appropriate gearbox was the German ‘E-box’, which was totally different to the one fitted to the RS1600, and the final drive was 3.54:1. The car was launched in England on 11th October 1973 priced at £1,586.

The restoration has been carried out to a very high standard, panel fit is superb throughout, the chrome work is bright and untarnished, and the doors open and close with a solid thud with no sign of droop or misalignment. Internally the cloth seats are in excellent order and are complemented by superb door cards and carpet set.

This particular Mk1 RS2000 was restored by ‘Tick Over’ of Dartford in Kent a couple of years ago and can be seen on their website homepage of vehicles they have restored over recent years. The vendor informs us that “OGS 396M bursts instantly into life with the first twist of the key. The four-speed manual is a delight to use, offering tight responsive shifts, and the car surges forward with the slightest tap of the throttle pedal but remains very manageable at all times. Everything feels tight and well put together, with no rattles or groans in evidence anywhere. Handling is super tight and responsive and the car drives superbly”.

In bright Banana Yellow, with its colour-coded Cibies, correct wheels, and period graphics, this 1974 2000RS is absolutely ‘on the money’ when it comes to the current classic car market. In the mid-seventies this would have been the car ‘to be seen in’, and in 2016, we think it has returned to that status.

This RS2000 boasts an exceptionally well-presented engine bay, suggesting that the engine rebuild has been carried out to the same high standard as the bodywork. Wiring is neat and tidy all round, as is the underneath of the car, so the new owner can display this car with pride at any car show. Having spent some time in a collection of ‘Sporting Fords’ and with a mileometer reading of 85,500 miles indicating that it hasn’t gone very far since its restoration, this RS remains in beautiful condition and is being sold with a fresh MoT.

The Dino 208 GT4 is the smaller brother of the Ferrari 308 GT4, revealed at the 1973 Paris Auto Salon, and was specially designed for the Italian market to avoid the heavy taxation levied on cars in those days with engines above 2 litres. The 208 remained in production from 1975 to 1980, with a total of 840 units receiving Maranello’s stamp of approval, and as this was a specific Italian market model, all were produced in a left-hand drive configuration. The exterior design of the 208 GT4 is very similar to its bigger brother with a pronounced wedgeshaped body penned by Bertone, a look that was very much in vogue with the style of the period. Within the angular body, there were some very nice design details, like the boomerang shaped air intakes on the sail panels that bordered the rear quarter glass and the tunnel effect of the inner sail panels to the flat vertical rear screen. The left side intake ducted cooling air to the oil radiator and the right side sent air to the carburettors. The overall design was very tight and well balanced and the shape has stood the test of time very well, certainly better than some of its contemporaries. The only obvious external differences between the two models were the 208 GT4’s single exhaust pipe and the plain aluminium finish for the louvres on the front lid and engine cover as opposed to satin black on the 308 GT4.

Manufactured in 1976, our little Azzurro Blu Dino had naturally suffered from the effects of 40 years of Italian sunlight, but it had done less than 40,000km and was basically sound, so its owner felt that it was worth bringing back to life. When the decision was made to fully restore the car there was no doubt in the owner’s mind about who was going to carry out the work, so off it went to Modena Classic Works on via Karl Marx in Carpi to be reborn. They are internationally renowned for the

quality of their restorations which can be summed up by their mission statement; “The restoration of a classic car is not just a matter of business and economic investment. It’s especially made of our ability to gather up, in the area around Modena, a team of mechanics, body mechanics, panel beaters, latheturners, just to mention a few, who – all together – contribute to the symphony of car-restoring”. The details of the ‘nut and bolt’, physical and mechanical restoration of Chassis No.11378 would take too long to list here but there is an extensive photographic and documented record of every inch of this car before and after, and a close inspection of the car itself will confirm the breathtaking results. Even the term ‘nut and bolt’ is not sufficiently comprehensive as every nut, bolt, washer and bracket used in the rebuild was “yellow galvanised” to accurately replicate those that would have been used in the initial build in 1976. Finished in its original Azzurro Blu, this Dino is fresh onto the market and will be sold with all the relevant import, NOVA numbers in place. If you have an interest in owning one of these rare seventies 2-litre, 2+2 Ferraris, then we would respectfully suggest that you are not going to find a better one, anywhere.

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’. 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 quadcam 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.

GTs produced, this epic Ford had made its mark on automotive history once again - and became an instant collector’s car. This immaculate, left-hand drive, 2005 Ford GT has covered 10,080 miles since it left the factory just over 10 years ago. It was built in the US in 2005 and was imported into the UK later that year by Roush (Mountune). This car has since been enjoyed by its four UK owners and Roush have looked after the car for all of them. Indeed, in 2008 they ‘upgraded’ the car with a ‘Tubi’ exhaust system, updated throttle bodies and an uprated pulley all of which resulted in around 600 BHP. Included in the history file are all the MoTs backing up the mileage indicated and it also contains service invoices from Mountune and GT101 in 2008 and every year from 2012 onwards. The vendor describes the car as totally original, with its original paint and paint protection film. 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, Ford’s supercar is a very special creation that will undoubtedly be revered for years to come. This is a great opportunity to add a low mileage and well-specified example of these achingly desirable coupés to your collection.

Rarely do cars given a facelift look as good as the models they are intended to replace, but with the Mk2, Jaguar put paid to that particular theory. (Until the XJ, Jaguar’s postwar saloons were usually denoted by Roman numerals e.g. Mark VII, Mark VIII whilst the Mark 2 used Arabic Numerals, denoted on the rear of the car as “MK 2”). William Lyons, whilst not a trained draughtsman, was a bit more handson than most men in his position when it came to the final design of his beloved Jaguars. At one point the team in the drawing office developing the later XJS, were left ‘twiddling their thumbs’ until Sir William was happy with the rear-end and it wasn’t until Stan Keyworth managed to scrounge a Ferrari Dino 246GT and dropped it up to the Lyons family home on Gibbet Hill that the matter was resolved. The car was parked outside the bay window of the breakfast room for Sir William to stare at and ‘Hey Presto’ the back of the XJS came into being (have a look at a Dino and an early XJS). And so it had been with the Mark 2, which was altogether a more modern and stylish car in period, with a brighter interior and balanced looks that most of us still admire. 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 Mk2 saloon was voted ‘Car of the Year’ when launched in 1959 and would form the mainstay of Jaguar’s saloon production until 1967. This striking Mk2 was first registered in January 1962 and has its original engine and gearbox although the latter has been uprated to ‘allsynchro’. All the numbers match and the numerous MoT certificates and sundry invoices in the history file that accompanies the car seem to substantiate the indicated 58,679 miles as accurate.

The car was stripped to a bare shell and carefully prepared for several coats of fresh paint. At this point, the engine was comprehensively rebuilt and naturally everything was done that needed to be, to ensure the car ran well for many more miles. All the suspension was rebuilt with new springs and shock absorbers and the fuel tank and fuel lines were replaced. The brakes were upgraded with new master cylinders, new servo, ‘Coopercraft’ calipers in the front and an ‘XJ’ brake caliper conversion carried out at the rear. When the mechanical restoration was complete, the car was repainted in its original beautiful colour of Opalescent Blue, and the interior was re-trimmed by Suffolk and Turley in Blue-Grey leather and a new headlining fitted. The remaining interior was trimmed and carpeted in Mid-Blue and the iconic Mk2 dashboard was freshly veneered as were the door cappings and picnic tables. The interior of this early-sixties Jaguar looks like a great place to be, and it’s all delightfully set off by a period ‘Les Leston’ steering wheel. Most of the chrome work, excluding the window frames, was re-plated and the bumpers and external brightwork, triple chrome plated. All new body rubbers were fitted and the engine finished off with a new stainless steel exhaust, new water hoses, and a new uprated heater box. Finally, the wire wheels were powder coated in an appropriate shade of blue. Supplied with all its handbooks and a current MoT, this definitive classic is ready for a new owner to drive and enjoy.

In 2012, it was fully restored by M and C Wilkinson of Doncaster who are one of the most highly respected, family run Jaguar engineers and specialists in the country today and have been responsible for the restoration and rebuilding of some very special period Jaguar road and race cars.

Introduced in 3.8-litre form in May 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a veritable sensation when it first appeared, with classic smooth lines, great looks and, at the time, an amazing top speed of 150 MPH. William Lyons had created one of the all-time most beautiful cars ever to be produced by Jaguar. The styling, together with 265 bhp and a huge weight saving of over 500lbs on its immediate predecessor (the XK 150), was a formidable combination. The first evolution was the introduction of the 4.2-litre engine, fully synchronised gearbox and greater legroom to accommodate six foot plus drivers. This model is often regarded as the ultimate driving E-type, and even now a well-sorted example is a sensational driving experience with a sense of occasion that’s hard to replicate at any price in a classic car.

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 V-12 by 250 cubic centimeters, to 5,748cc resulted in a healthy increase in power and torque, giving the 575M a top speed of 202 mph. 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 3,299 kms since leaving Maranello in its striking Rosso Corsa finish with a

After that, this vehicle was stored for the next 8 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 3,295kms. 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 its original tool kit and literature are present along with the EU registration papers. This is truly 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.

1995 FERRARI F355 BERLINETTA MANUAL

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 old-guard ‘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 down-force to offset any lift.

collection but has hardly used it, and feels that this superb 355 should really be enjoyed by a new owner. The mileage at the latest MoT on 24/3/2016 was 55,256kms compared to 54,265 the previous year and despite having covered just under 1,000 kms in a year there are invoices for almost £1,500 for care and attention. The car is accompanied by a Tan Leather Ferrari book pack and an interesting history file. 355 aficionados insist that the ‘one to have’ is the six-speed manual with the 2.7 Motronic ignition system and the slimmer, pre-airbag, steering wheel which is exactly what we have here, and when presented in this colour combination and in this condition this car is irresistible.

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. Dating from March 1995, this lovely left-hand drive 355 Berlinetta has the desirable manual gearbox and is finished in the very rare colour combination of Argento Silver with a Bordeaux interior. Supplied new to Oman and subsequently moved to Spain before arriving in the UK, while in the custody of the original owner. From the history file this little Ferrari obviously spent some time darting around the lanes of South Herefordshire as there are a number of invoices relating to its last owner in Ross on Wye who, judging by the invoice file was particularly fastidious, even going as far as fitting brand new seats from Ferrari.

“The car you always promised yourself” was the advertising slogan used by Ford at the launch of their new Capri in 1969, and that may well have been true for lots of people, but if you were keen on ‘sporting motoring’, then the Capri 1300L was unlikely to have been on the letter you wrote to Santa Claus. However as the model range expanded and larger and larger engines became available, the Capri began to be recognised as a decent performance car. Ford were, and still are, experts in using their Motor Sport involvement to keep their showroom doors creaking, particularly so in the 1970s, and soon an RS 2600 Capri was commissioned and built to compete in the European Touring Car Championship, initially with considerable success. However, BMW had bigger ideas and introduced the more powerful 3.0CSL, rapidly stealing a march on Ford at the circuits. In response, Ford Advanced Vehicle Operations got the go ahead in September 1973, to build a batch of Capri RS 3100s to homologate the car for the E.T.C.C.and the motorsport public were treated to some very special racing in the ‘74/75 season as both manufacturers showed scant regard for cost, both on and off the track. The Essex 3.0 V6 was over bored to 3091 cc, developed by Cosworth, and when fuelled through a Weber 38DGAS, produced 148bhp and 187lb ft of torque. The gearbox was a standard Granada unit with an Atlas diff and this combination when fitted to the road car resulted in 0 to 60 in 7.3 secs and a top speed of 125mph. The suspension was modified with stiffer front springs and competition rear springs and Bilstein Gas Dampers were fitted all round. Slightly flared arches, twin tailpipes, RS four-spoke alloys, a shallow front splitter and an enormous rear wing completed the look. The interior was pure 3000GXL with a flat 2-spoke steering wheel. The RS3100 was offered in a number

of bright colours and they were all decaled in Gold around the power bulge, the rear panel and a triple line down the side. We now know that 248 were built, however in the middle of a world recession sales were slow and Ford wanted the space for the Capri II, so production was ended and the last 50 of the unsold cars were sent to Australia. The fabulous Sebring Red Capri here is a genuine UK RS3100 with matching numbers - bodyshell, chassis, SPA Special AVO plate, and engine, and carries its original registration number TEC 147M. It has remained completely standard without any modifications and still sits on RS3100 front Bilsteins, legs, discs, calipers and rear single leaf springs. Restored by our vendor in 2001 using the correct Ford panels (bonnet, boot lid, both doors and the front panel), he was equally fastidious about getting the paint colour exactly correct before the car was professionally resprayed. The quality of the restoration and the condition of the car today can clearly be seen in the accompanying photographs.This particular car is well known to Len Pierce of the RS Owners Club and he will be happy to confirm this is the genuine article. There are numerous pictures of the car available and interested parties are invited to contact Guy Lees-Milne at Silverstone Auctions. We understand that there are only about one hundred RS3100s left, and if you are keen to own one, then we feel you might struggle to find a better one than this.

Introduced in 1992, the Porsche 964RS was offered in three versions. The ‘standard’ RS was the ultimate development of the superb 964, embracing all the values inherent in earlier ‘RS’ models, and it was joined by the MOO2 (Touring) and the MOO3 N/GT (also known as the Clubsport). The N/GT was the lightest of the trio and was essentially a race ready road car with a welded in Matter roll cage and stripped-out interior in body colour. Standard equipment included narrower Recaro type seats with full harnesses, a fire extinguisher and an electrical cut-out. It still remains one of the most accomplished club racers ever produced by the factory. A Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms that this stunning 964 RS was sold new on 11th February 1992 by Porsche Deutschland, Germany. Supplied new in Guards Red with the desirable Clubsport interior, the original German Fahrzeugbrief confirms the first three owners up until 1997. The current owner purchased the vehicle in 2005 and has put significant time and expense into creating the ultimate Porsche road/track car.

Supplied with a large history file of bills and receipts, UK V5C, a spare set of 3-piece BBS rims and a condition report from leading Porsche experts PARR Motorsport. PARR have maintained the car for many years and have conducted many of the upgrades themselves. Prospective bidders are welcome to contact PARR for a full and fair evaluation of its current condition. Many Porsche experts rate the 964 RS as the greatest 911 chassis ever, and with the ongoing intelligent development carried out by its current owner, we feel that this example has gradually evolved into one of the ultimate 911s money can buy today.

Reading just 70,287 kilometres from new, the car features the following very high specification, for which there are a large number of bills and receipts that document most of the works. The engine has been fully stripped and bored out to 3.8 litres using the original engine block. This included Billet cylinder heads, larger injectors, throttle bodies, GT3 crank, Carrillo rods, Sprint cams, all married up to a Motec engine management system. The exhaust system is a dual outlet stainless steel unit, which sounds incredible, and the car handles beautifully with JRZ 3-way suspension. Dynamically, the current owner has managed to shed significant weight with the addition of carbon front wings, carbon doors, carbon bonnet, carbon rear bumper, carbon engine lid, carbon front splitter, GT3 Clubsport leather seats and plexiglass rear quarters and rear window. The overall result is a normally aspirated, high-revving 964 RS that develops 360 bhp, weighs 1050 kg and is equally at home on

These are classically beautiful cars, and in this delightful colour combination would engender serious pride of ownership.

In 1992 BMW introduced this new M3 at the Paris Motor Show based on the E36 platform. The second incarnation of the M3 was a different animal to the 1980’s E30 original, with a straight-six in place of the fizzy four, modern styling and a more refined demeanour. At this time, the Motorsport Division’s new take on the iconic M3 was to utilise the standard M50TU engine (used in other E36s and earlier E34s). However, there were numerous upgrades over the standard M50 including individual throttle plates for each cylinder, continuously variable ‘Vanos’ valve timing, lightweight pistons, graphite-coated connecting rods, larger inlet valves and re-designed equal length exhaust manifolds. The resultant 24 valve, S50B30 engine had a capacity of 2990cc and produced 282bhp, an output approaching 100bhp/litre, pretty impressive. The torque curve is not dissimilar to Ayers Rock, in that it is high and flat - and the dual mass flywheel contributes to the engine’s ability to rev to nearly 7,300rpm. In 1996, the M3 was developed further with an increase in capacity to 3,152cc becoming known as the (M3) Evolution. The BMW E36 M3 is remembered for its road holding and all-round ability and was awarded “Best-Handling Car” by Car and Driver magazine in 1997.

The car presented here is a 1994 E36 M3 in the distinctive BMW colour of Avus Blue. This right-hand drive, UK car is in great original condition, having covered just 39,200 miles with just two former keepers. The car drives and feels just as you’d expect from such a wellpreserved example. The engine bay is in quite exceptional order, as is the driver-focused interior which displays minimal wear with even the wear-prone sports seats in great condition. Trying to find an earlier E36 M3 in this sort of condition is getting much harder. The inherent build-quality from this era is high, with a real feeling of being built-for-purpose and BMW had a hard act to follow after the E30 M3, so invested heavily in the development and execution of these early M3 E36 cars. This car comes with its BMW book-pack, a full set of keys, its complete tool kit and first aid pack. The servicing schedule is consistent with the mileage and shows five visits to a main dealer and a recent independent. The car is believed to have been in storage for approximately 12 years, explaining the low mileage, and was recently subjected to a full recommissioning, with an MoT until April 2017. With prices having risen significantly for well-preserved and original E30 M3s, this is an ideal opportunity now to acquire the following M3 incarnation before they do the same. This car is the right example to buy and keep.

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 4.8 litres, V12 which was now available with the option of a Borg Warner 3-speed automatic gearbox. In 1979, the Webers were replaced with Bosch ‘K’ Fuel Injection and power dropped slightly to 305 bhp, however, some three years later, re-profiled camshafts restored around 5 bhp, bringing the output up to 310bhp. 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’ s were produced from 1979 to 1985. Originally supplied to Lancaster of Colchester for the sum of £32,474, the car was sold and registered to its first owner, a Mr. McTighe of Ingatestone on 1st February 1983. The Ferrari then changed hands in early January, 1985 and became the property of Conrad Ritblat & Co. for the exclusive use of John Ritblat, who later went on to receive a Knighthood and establish one of the largest property empires in the UK.

1963 PORSCHE 550A SPYDER EVOCATION (ALUMINIUM)

Porsche’s first real attempt at building a race car was the 550 Spyder powered by their Carrera 1500cc quad-cam flat four engine. Although output was a modest 115bhp, the car was light and handled superbly and it soon gained a reputation as a ‘Giant Killer’. During September 1955 one of the first ninety 550 Spyders (Vin 550 - 0055) would be immortalised in history when James Dean, actor and budding racing driver collided fatally with Donald Turnupseed on his way to the Salinas Road Race. The trans-axle was removed from the wreck at the time and is still owned privately in the USA, and the bodywork of ‘’Little Bastard’’ toured the States as a macabre reminder to speeding motorists. Sadly between appearances, it went missing and has not been heard of since, however, I imagine it may well reappear one day.

vivid with true handling to match. Road manners and ride quality have been improved by swapping the original swing axle arrangement to a four-link de Dion and Panhard rod setup and fitting rack and pinion steering. With modern engineering thinking and design solutions, it would not be unfair to suggest that this 550A will outperform the original at every level. The transmission is a Porsche type 901, 5-speed gearbox with a Quaife torque biased differential and the clutch and flywheel are from a period sixty’s 911S racer. The engine is dry sumped and includes some additional Jake Raby cooling modifications.Many of the fittings are either Porsche 356 or 550, adding to the period feel of this stunning and beautifully engineered homage to the iconic Porsche 550 Spyder.

In 1956, the 550A Spyder made its appearance and, although externally similar, it was an altogether different car with a complex space-frame replacing the earlier ‘ladder’ chassis. Although only 37 were built in 56/7 the 550A’s abilities were remarkable and it proved very competitive in motorsport, bringing Porsche their first ever overall ‘Sports Car’ win in the 1956 Targo Florio.

Most of this car’s life has been spent in Slovenia, taken there some eight years ago by its English owner, a retired sports journalist. Now in his 80s, he brought the car back to the UK recently, where it has remained registered as AOW 265A. Its chassis identity 213089 is recorded on the V5C as 1963 Porsche Sports Cabriolet, its Porsche 356 donor. The Spyder has recently undergone a full professional repaint in 2015, has been serviced and comes with a current MoT.

Offered here is a stunning recreation of the 1956 Porsche 550A Spyder envisioned and brought to life by Kent based specialist race car constructor Lewis Barrow. Barrow Automotive Creations are renowned fabrication experts in aluminium and crafted an exact copy of the body and a space frame chassis. Paying testament to his work is the skill used to form the evocative curves of arguably one of the most iconic sports car of the fifties. The engine was built by air-cooled specialist Jake Raby who enlarged the 2.0litre Porsche IV 914 unit to 2400cc and with twin plug heads, ‘Jenvey’ throttle bodies and electronic ignition, it produces 257 bhp.

Suitably allied to Torqueflite automatic transmission, this much larger engine gave the 411 an estimated 30% more power than had been available in the 410, resulting in a 0-60mph of seven seconds and a top speed of 143mph. To cope with this extra power, all-round disc brakes and a limited slip differential were fitted, and independent coiland-wishbone front and torsion bar rear suspension kept everything civilised. During its seven years in production, the 411 was constantly being developed and updated. The 1971 Series 2 added self-levelling suspension and a metric odometer whilst the Series 3 from a year later had a lower compression ratio and completely revised styling. This edition was the first Bristol to possess the four-headlamp layout that had been tried on the 401 and 402 but on the 411-Series 3 was a spectacular success.

who subsequently passed it on to a relative and it was during this period that we believe the car was completely stripped and restored, with a colour change from Gold to Light Blue Metallic, and superbly re-trimmed. Following this work, circumstances resulted in this freshly restored Bristol being laid-up and stored for approximately nine years. In 2014, this splendid car was bought by our enthusiastic vendor (only the 4th owner), who has owned and maintained many classic cars over the years. He has improved this car in numerous areas, whilst participating in many events as an active member of the Bristol Owners Club. Recent work carried out includes improvements to the front suspension, maintenance of the gearbox, wheel bearings and back-axle, replacement brake servos, a restored headlining, renewed windscreen rubbers, attention to the bumpers, and the fitting of seatbelts. The engine benefits from a modern Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor. The car currently sits on a set of sparkling chrome wire wheels with ‘whitewall’ tyres, however, the original wheels and hubcaps are with the car but will require some minor refurbishment.

These cars were considered far more exclusive than their Rolls-Royce or Aston Martin peers at the time, with the total production of all series of 411 thought to have been just 287 cars. A journalist of the day christened the 411 “ The fastest true four-seat touring car in the world”.

This 411 drives and performs gracefully with all the power you would expect from a V8 Bristol and has recently passed an MoT test with no advisories, whilst also benefitting from new tyres and a recent engine tune. In 2015, it scored 1098 points out of a possible 1200 at the Bristol Owners Club Concours event. This “Gentleman’s’ Express” has been used sparingly for the last twelve years, with our vendor now requiring additional garage space, it deserves to be used and enjoyed by its new owner.

The car offered here is a 1972, 411 Series 3 that has been enjoyed by just three former keepers. In 1976 it was purchased by its second keeper

Bristol ownership is a rather exclusive club, and your membership card is right here in the form of this fabulous 411.

1986 FORD SIERRA RS COSWORTH

The Ford Sierra RS was the first Ford to carry the Cosworth name when production started in Belgium in June 86, however, the concept dated back to Brands Hatch in 1982. Walter Hayes and Stuart Turner had watched Rover dominate the touring car race supporting the British Grand Prix and with Ford Cosworth engines powering fourteen of the F1 cars on the grid they both agreed it would be nice to see a Ford saloon winning again, especially a Sierra. It was not until the summer of 1983, when Turner was conducting a tour for a group of Ford USA personnel around Cosworth Engineering in Northampton, highlighting the Grand Prix DFY engine, that the ‘moment’ emerged. He noticed a 16-valve Sierra engine that Cosworth had been developing privately and, in conversation, the decision was made to mate this with a turbo and this power unit eventually led to Ford’s total dominance in European Touring Cars with the Sierra Cosworth.

engine its maiden win at that Dutch Grand Prix, and the DFV would dominate Formula One for over fifteen years. Ford’s investment in Cosworth was a masterstroke and started one of the most successful brand partnerships in motorsport. Looking purposeful in Black, D999 HVR presents very well indeed and has only covered 34,000 miles from new, thanks to it being dry stored for 17 years. The car has undergone a comprehensive re-commissioning including a new cam belt with tensioners and a full service with all the fluids changed. It still retains all of its original features and interestingly does not have an after-market exhaust, keeping a ‘pattern part’ mild steel version. The car has been carefully detailed showing this original Fast Ford at its best. In gleaming Black with low mileage and a fresh MoT, this must surely be a great addition to any car collection.

Cosworth was founded by Mike Costin and Keith Duckworth and is most famous for the design and introduction of the Cosworth DFV Formula One engine. In June 1967, Graham Hill put a Lotus-Cosworth on pole at Zandvoort with Jim Clark going on to give the Cosworth

1971 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES III 2+2 COUPÉ

Synonymous with the Swinging Sixties, and epitomising the fashion and designs of the time, the E-Type’s enduring style continues to make it one of the world’s most desirable cars. ‘ADE 175J’ was built in 1971 and dispatched to New York in August of that year. At some point, it moved to Texas, and it was from there that this E-type was exported back to England. This left-hand drive, automatic Jaguar E-Type Series III 5.3 litre 2+2 Coupé is presented in striking Metallic Royal Blue with contrasting Dark Blue leather interior. With matching numbers, as confirmed in its Jaguar Heritage Certificate, the speedometer is currently showing 28,634 unwarranted miles. Since returning to the UK, the car has benefited from around £5,000 of recent expenditure, including work to the suspension and some electrical maintenance carried out by Ken Clarke Motorsport. The interior has also received attention from upholstery expert, Emily Willis, at Northwick Park, who has restored the seats and fitted a new

This car was first registered in the UK in November 2014 and is presented to Auction with an MoT until 25th November 2016. Described by the vendor as an honest example, which he has been quietly restoring over the past year, however, a new motor racing programme in need of a budget means he would like to pass it on to someone who can get full use out of it. Having lived most of its life in the dry State of Texas until its recent import, the bodyshell is said to be good. Sensibly guided, this matching numbers Series III E-Type in a fabulous colour only needs a touch or two and some detailing to make it into a fabulous example of an appreciating model.

Introduced in March 1971, the Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible came with an eye-watering price tag, however, it didn’t seem to affect the order books. They were the ultimate in exclusivity with the true tradition of British hand built craftsmanship incorporating the very best of materials. The construction was a joint venture and logistics exercise between the Crewe factory and H J Mulliner Park Ward of London. Rolls-Royce’s well proven 6.7 litre V8 gave the Corniche impressive performance figures to complement its exquisite styling. The early Corniche offered here was delivered new to Sir Bruce Forsyth in July 1971. The history file contains all the service invoices billed to him until 1978. In 1987 the new owner was Alpine Grant who was the brother and manager of ‘Eddy’ Grant, founding member of the Equals pop group. It carried the registration 561 ALP and the history file contains photos in its original colour of white and various invoices

1958 JAGUAR XK150 3.4 FIXED HEAD COUPÉ

The XK120 was launched in 1948 and it was an international sensation finally putting Jaguar on the world stage and their competition successes would see the beginning of a hugely positive period for the company. The XK150 was the final incarnation of the XK series and it appeared in May 1957, as either a fixed or drophead coupé. A more refined and capable machine than its predecessors, the 150 was noticeably different from earlier versions of the XK theme with a higher scuttle and door line, whilst the radiator grille reverted to the thinner slats of the XK120, but was altogether wider. There were also larger wraparound bumpers fitted, a curved windscreen replaced the divided one on the XK120 and 140, and much needed servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes were fitted all-round. However, the XK150 retained much of the mechanical layout of the XK140 sharing the same 3.4-litre DOHC Jaguar straight-six, which developed 180bhp at 5750rpm. The car offered for sale here is a 1958 XK150 3.4-litre, right-hand drive fixed head coupé, specified with a manual gearbox. It was manufactured for the UK Home Market on the 2nd April 1958, being dispatched on the 28th April, via Henlys of London. First registered on the 17th July 1958, this very well preserved example still wears its original number plate, whilst also retaining its original chassis and drive-train (supported by inspection, corresponding paperwork and a JDHT Certificate). Originally painted Pearl Grey with red trim, it was repainted in Indigo Blue in 1980. The last time this car was sold, it did so with another prominent auction house, Coys of Kensington on the 4th May 1986, when our vendor purchased it. His long and diligent ownership saw the car go with him out to Spain, where it has been used sparingly for the last 30 years, occasionally being driven out on local rallies. The owner’s dedication

to the car extended to him utilising Jaguar specialists back in the UK to source parts and maintain its engine. In 2009/10 he commissioned long-established Jaguar parts company Norman Motors Ltd. of London to complete a full engine rebuild. They, in turn, utilised the skills of Greencats Ltd. of Colchester, who spent the best part of a year meticulously carrying out the work, at a cost of approximately £10,000. The car has covered just 2,600 miles since. The history file contains invoices and photographs of this work, plus many other bills for maintenance and parts over the years. Also present is a Jaguar/ Daimler Heritage Certificate helping to confirm its matching-numbers status, an original Jaguar XK Service Manual, plus the bill of sale from 1986 and some old MoT certificates / V5c documents. This very fine classic Jaguar car still retains a look and feel of genuine originality and authenticity. It is a credit to our vendor that money has been spent on mechanical componentry, whilst ensuring the preservation of many original features. The car drives and performs particularly well, having been driven back to the UK recently, some 1,800 miles, without issue or problem. Recently issued with a NOVA (Notification of Vehicle Arrival) number and is awaiting re-registration in the UK with a corresponding V5c, enabling it to be reunited with its original registration number, FFB 486. This distinguished and elegant car is in need of very little, but would benefit from some minor refreshing and auxiliary parts. It comes to auction following a long and conscientious ownership period, where it was much-loved. For cars of this era to hold onto such patina, whilst still being so eminently driveable mechanically, is testimony to the high regard in which they are held by dedicated owners and worth celebration.

The engine that would ultimately power the legendary Lotus Cortina began its life in 1961 when Colin Chapman commissioned a twin-cam version of the Ford Kent unit and bored it out to give 1,558cc. Whilst the it was still being developed, Ford asked Chapman to fit the engine to 1,000 Ford saloons for Group 2 homologation. Chapman accepted the challenge and the Ford Lotus Cortina was born. Ford supplied the bodyshells, whilst Lotus handled the mechanical and cosmetic changes. The model was to dominate saloon car racing for the Ford factory as it evolved throughout the 1960s and was driven by many stars of the day, including the legendary Jim Clark. In total, approximately 3,000 Lotus Cortinas were manufactured. This stunning 1965 Lotus Cortina was delivered new on 1st June 1965 to the UK and is a highly desirable A-Frame example, complete with deeper factory hump in the floor to accommodate the differential. A letter from the Lotus Cortina Register confirms that ELW 522C was inspected in 2009 and found to be a genuine Lotus Cortina with the correct chassis and registration number. This car is very well-known to the Lotus Cortina club as it used to be the pride and joy of the exchairman of the Mk I Ford Cortina Club, Mike Pratt. The car has a superb and detailed history file that documents previous owners and gives a real sense of this Lotus Cortina’s privileged life. Original letters and documents confirm the details of just 5 previous owners. In addition, a copy of ‘Thoroughbred & Classic Cars’ from October 1988 documents the 4-year marathon rebuild carried out by Mr. Pratt during the mid-1980s. A large number of invoices and pictures show the car from a complete shell to the gleaming finished article during this complete restoration. A rare original Lotus Cortina owner’s

In May 2012 the car was stripped of all its trim, windows, badges and bumpers. The sills, inner and outer arches, and door skins were replaced and the whole car was treated to 3 coats of primer and 3 coats of Ford Ermine White.

1996 FORD ESCORT RS COSWORTH LUX

The Ford Escort RS Cosworth proved that it was possible to follow its legendary 1980’s 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 season 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. At its retail launch in 1994, two models were available, the ‘Clubspec’ standard car at £21,380 and the more optioned ‘Lux’ version. Power was up slightly from the Sierra RS Cosworth, at 227bhp, and performance consequently improved. The first 2,500 cars up to May

1994 suffered from turbo lag, but the next 4,500 were improved thanks to their smaller Garrett T25 Turbo. In 1995, the RS Cosworth was treated to a mild facelift when it received a new honeycomb grille, restyled bumpers, a more attractive fascia and revised alloy wheels. The car continued until early 1996 when emissions regulations effectively ended its viability. Like pretty much every RS Ford, it was a classic from the moment it was built. N616 HLB is presented in Imperial Blue and is in outstanding condition. This is as near to the original specification as you will find, retaining all of its original features including, orange indicators, middle and lower splitter, the correct radio/cd player, original tyre change kit and all of its original Ford badging. This Cosworth has benefitted from not having any modifications whatsoever, and so will appeal to the purists out there. The car is accompanied by its original Ford Manuals, a full history from new, and has been enjoyed by three previous owners during its 34,700 miles. The paintwork has just been detailed showing the striking Imperial Blue at its best, and we thoroughly recommend viewing this well-presented, classic ‘Fast Ford’.

1990 ASTON MARTIN VIRAGE

Unveiled at the Birmingham Motor Show in 1988, the Aston Martin Virage was the first all-new Aston for nearly 20 years and, notably, it was also the first car to be produced under Ford’s ownership. Designed by John Heffernan and Ken Greeley, it was praised for its fresh contemporary styling. The new V8 engine was a development of the tried and tested 5.3-litre power unit but with new four-valve cylinder heads for better breathing and to overcome the inevitable power losses associated with the arrival of catalytic converters. The new car was hand-built with an aluminium bodyshell and embraced many of the legendary Aston Martin styling cues, including its distinctive grille and front wing vents. In spite of its aluminium body, the Virage was a large and heavy car, so the 32-valve, 5.3-litre V8 was pressed into service to persuade the big Aston up to 60mph in around 6.5 seconds. Just 1,050 Virage related models were produced in total, quite a low production number when compared to some of its predecessors.

European VAT has been paid on the Aston and the car is ready to go, however, there are some minor areas where the paintwork needs a little attention and it could do with a little tlc and some detailing. Idiosyncratic and a bit ‘macho’, these cars are now widely accepted as the last of the classic Aston Martins before the launch of the Ford financed and Jaguar influenced DB7 in the late 1990s, and having reached the bottom of their depreciation curve recently, we have to agree with the delightful ‘Yazz’ - “The only way is up”.

Originally registered in the UK on 11/09/90, this Aston had two owners here before being shipped to Denmark. This Virage is right-hand drive, has only covered 34,000 miles from new and, we understand, drives superbly. Most Virage’ are automatic, but this is one of the very rare 5-speed manual cars with a ‘dog-leg’ gearbox. The car is finished in a lovely understated Valiant Blue, however, the interior is anything but, in fabulous Rich Red Connolly Leather with polished wood veneers.

The Sprinzel Sebring Sprite Coupé was introduced to the world at the London Racing Car Show in January 1961, and whilst only six examples were originally produced, two of these were raced at Sebring in 1961 in the hands of Pat (S221) and Stirling Moss (PMO 200) thus enhancing the marque’s pedigree. Lots of attempts were made, in period, to give the Austin Healey Sprite a competition advantage, some less than successful and some like Lenham and WSM did very well, but none ended up as revered as the John Sprinzel cars. Archers Garage located in Oldbury, nr. Birmingham has been long associated with British Sports Cars and re-created the pretty, streamlined hardtop and bonnet in the early nineties from an original Sprinzel car. Their work includes routine servicing of customers’ cars, production and assembly of Sebring Sprite body sections and, occasionally, complete cars. Brian Archer had wanted to re-produce John Sprinzel’s very pretty streamlined Sebring Sprite for some years and was finally able to do so in the early 1990s. The hardtop from the original WJB 707 and a good Sebring bonnet were the basis for the creation of the moulds, and from these many fibreglass replica parts have been produced and marketed for 20 years. Incidentally, Archers are the only company to have gained John Sprinzel’s approval.

This beautiful Sebring Sprite evocation has recently been completed by our vendor after a painstaking five-year professional build to fast road spec with great attention to detail. Since its completion it has covered a mere 150 shake-down miles and is being sold, the enthusiastic vendor informs us, ‘’to fund the next project’’. Based on a 1962 Sprite shell, this homage to the original Sebring has been converted to semi-elliptic rear springs and is fitted with an

1991 PORSCHE 911 (964) TURBO

The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models; most prominently, more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all wheel drive as options. Porsche chose to re-use the 3.3 litre engine from the 930 with several minor revisions resulting in the engine running smoother, being less prone to turbo lag, and more powerful with a total output of 320bhp at 5750rpm. The 964 Turbo is considered to be one of the prettiest 911s built and certainly one of the most powerful.

Registration: G4 TMF Chassis Number: WPOZZZ96ZMS470071 Engine Number: 61M00216 Estimate (£): 85,000 - 100,000

Externally, the car presents very well indeed with good shut lines and straight panels. There is a small area of rust under the driver’s side windscreen, which will require some attention, but it is the intention of the current owner to present the car in as original a condition as possible. The interior is original throughout and will be treated to a refurbishment prior to the auction. The last service was carried out in January by Porsche specialist Perfect Touch. Overall, this 964 Turbo is a highly collectable example that has been carefully maintained and is ready to use and enjoy. Buyers should be aware that the number plate shown is included in the sale.

This stunning 3.3 Litre, 964 Turbo is an original ‘C16’ UK specification, right-hand drive example that was sold new on 8th August 1991 by AFN London, at a cost of over £75,000. Finished in its original and very rare colour of Tahoe Blue with Linen White leather interior, the car has been maintained meticulously since new. The history file on this particular 964 Turbo is one of the best we have seen. Bills and receipts can be found in the folder, along with an original service booklet boasting 20 stamps, original wallet, previous V5 documents, tax discs and lots of MoT certificates that substantiate a total mileage of 65,510 miles from new. A large number of bills and receipts, along with service stamps, document huge expenditure with respected names such as AFN, Autofarm, Paragon and RPM. In addition, an engine rebuild was carried out by the current owner when he bought the car in 2009. Such were his high standards, the car wasn’t actually finished until 2012.

1987 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SE (W126)

The W126 was the flagship ‘S’ class of the Mercedes-Benz range between 1979 and 1991. The entry level was the very popular 280SE, which later became the 300SE in Sep 1985, when Mercedes developped an all new fuel efficient ‘Energy Program’ range of engines, including the new 3.0 litre straight six. This 300SE is from 1987 and is in exceptional condition today, having been on display in the Mercedes-Benz World Museum at Brooklands in Surrey, until very recently. The factory have inspected and maintained this car whilst under their care and regard as it as one of the best and most original right hand drive cars available today. Originally sold new to Japan, it was built in Alpine White with blue velour upholstery and featured factory options including velour upholstery, alloy wheels, air conditionning, a ‘Becker’ stereo system and park distance control. Mercedes-Benz have modified the car to full UK spec and it has now

recorded just 48,429 Kms (30,000 miles) from new. The car comes with a known provenance and service history and an MOT until October 2016. The speedo has been modified by a factory decal to read in MPH, although the odometer still records Kms. Offered at a very realistic price guide - it is an opportunity to buy a later classic that although nearly 30 years old, still has the luxury of air conditionning, ABS and a comfortable ride!

1988 JAGUAR XJS V12 CONVERTIBLE

The XJS Convertible, which first appeared in 1988 at a price of £36,000, was considerably more than merely a coupé with the roof removed. The earlier ‘T’-top cabriolet paved the way as the first open Jaguar since the demise of the E-Type in 1975, but this was to be the first full convertible and a strengthened sub-frame was employed in order to alleviate scuttle shake. It looked superb and elegant with the hood erect or folded and finally met the demands of the highly valued North American market. Retaining the roomy cockpit space of the coupé, the new convertible boasted a useful shelf for excess luggage and all the expected Jaguar refinements as standard. It made for a very fine open top grand touring car, exceeding the specification of other home-grown machinery and being much cheaper than the equivalent high-profile Mercedes SL. Today, this model is very much establishing itself as a most worthy latter-day classic, good examples being eagerly sought by connoisseurs of the marque.

Registration: F584 KGW Chassis Number: SAJJNADW3DA153633 Engine Number: 8S061344HA Estimate (£): 22,000 - 25,000

If 1980’s styling is what you desire, then the XJS Convertible ticks the right boxes, and if you want a modern classic that delivers an enjoyable driving experience with the ability to get you to your destination quickly and in style, then this car has it in bucket loads. Sold with an MoT (expiry date of 30th May 2017), this beautiful XJS Convertible is ready for some roof down, late summer sunshine!

This stunning right-hand drive XJS convertible was built in 1988 and finished in Ice Blue Metallic with a stunning cream leather interior and a blue mohair hood. Described as being in superb original condition, the car is showing just 18,568 miles on the odometer which we believe to be genuine with service records to corroborate its infrequent use. There is a blue mohair cover for the roof when it’s folded down which looks to be in fine condition, along with a full complement of tools in the boot and all of the relevant manuals in their book pack
