    • ModelSilver Wraith
    • FE Cat descThe Rolls-Royce marque has long been the benchmark of automobile for which many aspired to. The Silver Wraith II is an extended wheelbase version of the popular Silver Shadow II, and it was named in honour of the first post-war Rolls-Royce. The Silver Wraith was further distinguished from its shorter wheelbase stablemate by the fitting of the Cornich/Camargue-pattern wheel trims. The Shadow and its derivatives were the first to utilize a monocoque body and the car ran with a 6.75-litre V8 engine that is both powerful and silky smooth. This is mated to the always reliable GM supplied automatic transmission. Changes to the Silver Shadow that carried over to this more upscale model included the addition of rack-and-pinion steering, plus significant improvements to the front suspension that also helped improve the handling and overall performance. These changes ushered in more modern standards that were already available on selected competitors in this fashionable field of vehicles. The larger Silver Wraith was considered the top of the range for Rolls-Royce in this period and also stands apart due to its Everflex covered roof and small rear window. Increasingly sought after by interested collectors, only 2,135 Silver Wraiths were manufactured by the time production ended in October of 1980. This example is one of the last Silver Wraith’s produced by the Crewe based Manufacturer. With only three owners from new, this Rolls-Royce presents in exceptional condition throughout. The brake system was overhauled in September 2018 and the car comes with all the original service books. Finished in Walnut with tan leather interior, the burr walnut wood is unmarked, this is a Silver Wraith of the highest quality. The V8 engine burst into life when requested and the car drives beautifully. The car is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate together with a good history folder. Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow’s have become increasingly desirable of late, this magnificent rarer Silver Wraith with only three previous keepers is expected to continue the trend.

    • Model380 SL Roadster
    • FE Cat descIn the motoring world the name Mercedes-Benz SL is synonymous with elegance, style and high quality engineering. The name has been in use since 1954 and was first used on the famous 300 SL of that year. The model has enjoyed numerous engine configurations and spans five design generations. R107 is the manufacturers codename for the SL range that was produced between 1971 and 1989 and during its considerable reign, it was powered by eight different engines. This 380 SL Roadster is presented in the classic colour combination of dark brown with a contrasting cream interior and is in good condition throughout. The 380 has perhaps the best balance of the model line-up featuring the desirable V8 engine. This 380 SL has been in the current owners tenure for eight years and is described as being tremendous fun to drive. The history file for this modern classic contains various bills and receipts, a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until December 2019.

    • Model280 SL Pagoda
    • FE Cat descThe Mercedes-Benz W113 SL was developed under the auspices of Mercedes-Benz Technical Director Fritz Nallinger, Chief Engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut and Head of Styling Friedrich Geiger. The lead designers were Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi, who created its distinctive, patented, slightly concave hardtop, which inspired the 'Pagoda' nickname. The model was manufactured from 1963 through to 1971 and boasted an in-line straight six cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The larger capacity 2.8 litre was introduced in 1967 and remained largely unchanged until 1971 and represents the most desirable of all the SL range, producing, as it does, more power with an improved five main bearing crankshaft, combined with eminently capable handling and disc brakes all round, making a wonderful driver’s car. This stunning UK supplied righthand drive Mercedes-Benz was first registered on 23rd January 1969. It benefits from having significant investment over recent years; the interior has been trimmed by D.Classics at a cost of £10,000 and the engine rebuilt by the well known and respected Pagoda aficionado Roger Edwards. The blue coachwork has been finished to an exceptionally high standard and the chromework is unblemished; this is a 280 SL Pagoda of the highest quality. The driveability of this car is enhanced by an automatic transmission. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a significant history folder this Mercedes-Benz is owned by a particularly knowledgeable and fastidious vendor who is only selling her due to lack of suitable storage space. Viewing this car in person is highly recommended to fully appreciate the quality.

    • ModelMcLaren SLR Roadster
    • FE Cat descThe SLR McLaren, introduced in November 2003, was Mercedes-Benz's foray into the world of the supercar, alongside such cars as the Porsche Carrera GT and the Ferrari Enzo. It was developed in collaboration with the McLaren Technology Centre which, at the time, was partially owned by Mercedes-Benz. For 2007, Mercedes-Benz added even more drama into the SLR by introducing the SLR McLaren Roadster. Whilst the roof was removed, the ‘swing-wing’ doors remained, hinged to the A-pillars rather than the roof itself. Not wishing to lose any excitement over the original SLR, engineers spent lots of time focusing on the car’s structural rigidity, and Mercedes claim that the roadster is as rigid as the coupé. With a top speed of over 185mph, at the time, this was one of the fastest and most exciting convertibles money could buy. Its AMG Speedshift R transmission provides three manual modes to suit the owner's style of driving. Other remarkable technical features include the Sensotronic 'brake by wire' system; carbon-ceramic disc brakes which can bring the SLR to a sharp halt from 120mph to stationary in less than 240 feet. Originally supplied by Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey on 22nd January 2008, this stunning SLR has only covered 3,129 miles from new. The condition of the car is certainly commensurate with such a low mileage; the Crystal Digenit Blue paintwork is unmarked as is the tan and anthracite leather interior and the 19” nine hole design turbine wheels are spotless - in summary this car presents as new despite being 11 years old. The cockpit area of an SLR is a thing of beauty and to drive such a car is a memorable experience. This one is no different; the engine fired up immediately upon request as one would expect of such a car, and drives with no known faults. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate together with the original handbooks; whether you are driving to your local golf club or to the Côte d'Azur, there can be few more enjoyable ways to travel than a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.

    • ModelDino 2400 Coupé
    • FE Cat descDuring the early 1960's, Ferrari needed a two litre production-based engine for the new Formula 2 and conceived the mid-engined Dino to provide the necessary basis. Faced with the daunting task of building 500 units per annum to meet homologation requirements, Ferrari turned to Fiat for assistance; the resulting agreement, for the latter, was to build the Ferrari Dino's four-cam, V6 engine that led to a spin-off model for Fiat. The Fiat Dino was introduced at the Turin Motor Show in 1966 alongside the Dino Berlinetta GT, later to become the Ferrari Dino 246. Powered by a shared four camshaft, two litre, V6 engine, both cars benefitted from a racing pedigree that went back to Ferrari's Dino 166P sports- racing unit and their 246 Grand Prix engine. The V6 engine's capacity was increased to 2,418cc in 1969 when a ZF five-speed gearbox and trailing-arm independent rear suspension were among many improvements adopted. The Dino model was built as either a Bertone designed coupé or a Spider from Pininfarina. A stylish conveyance for four, the Fiat Dino raced to 60mph in around seven seconds and could exceed 130mph whilst making all the right Ferrari-esque noises. We are delighted to offer this Fiat Dino coupé that was manufactured supplied to Austria during 1970. In 1990, the Dino was sold to an Italian gentleman who then stored this example for 20 years. Subsequently, in 2014, the car was recommissioned and refinished in gunmetal grey with contrasting black leather interior. New brakes on all four corners and a stainless steel exhaust system were also fitted. The odometer reading of 40,699km equating to approximately 25,289 miles, is believed genuine, based upon its remarkable condition throughout, no doubt due to its long-term storage and low recorded kms. This lefthand drive, European specification Dino is presented in excellent condition and sits upon Cromodora magnesium alloy wheels with excellent tyres. It also comes with a UK V5 registration document and small history file. The Ferrari powered Fiat Dino may certainly be classed as a supercar and today, these examples are extremely difficult to find in this condition and being offered with a very tempting estimate.

    • ModelSL55 AMG
    • FE Cat descThe fifth generation of the legendary SL series of two-door convertible sports cars was known as the R230. It featured a fully retractable hardtop that was marketed as the Vario Roof, a first for the SL class although it had been available on the smaller SLK model since 1997. The flagship models were built by AMG in the form of the SL55 and SL65, both highly tuned versions of the SL500 and SL600 respectively. The SL55 was powered by a mighty supercharged version of the 5.5 litre, V8 which produced 493bhp and achieved 0-62 in 4.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 155mph (governed). In theory, the SL55 could reach 190mph if the car was derestricted but, for many, the acceleration and top speed is impressive enough in its standard form! In stunning order and with just three previous keepers, two of which were husband and wife, this Mercedes-Benz is offered in silver with a charcoal interior. A fully specified car which boasts satellite navigation, heated and cooled seats, wind deflector, tracker, Parktronic, Linguatronic mobile phone integration, panoramic roof, tv tuner and keyless start. Always garaged, this example has been part of a AMG private collection in Cheshire, it is offered with a full Mercedes-Benz service history with six stamps at 17,000, 22,000, 24,000, 34,000, 43,000, 48,000 and in March 2019 had a Mercedes-Benz health check and new battery. These stylish sportscars are magnificent to drive and are hugely popular due to their ability to sit in traffic or travel at exceptional speed (where permitted) in comfort. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until February 2020, this car is a great way to enjoy motoring.

    • ModelMargrave by Wood & Pickett
    • FE Cat descThe Alex Issigonis designed Mini became the classless but chic motorcar to be seen in during the 1960’s and beyond. The '1960s cool' saw pop idols and Royalty mixing it with the common man and with so many Minis being built it was, perhaps, inevitable that variations on the theme would be born. Inspired by Harold Radford’s upmarket Mini de Ville, Wood & Pickett Ltd established itself in the 1960’s and led by Bill Wood and Les Pickett, the ex-employees of the specialist coachbuilder Hooper & Co. The company was purchased by the Henlys Group in 1986, and later sold to entrepreneur Mike Bush in 1989. This exceptional Mini benefits from an extensive luxurious specification and by virtue of the fact it was restored in the 1990s it presents in very good order throughout. Originally registered on 10th June 1970, this example benefits from Mercedes-Benz headlamps which are a rare option on these cars, it is thought they were fitted only to Omar Sharif’s Mini Margrave and one other example; twin fuel tanks are another feature of this car. Fitted with a 1,380cc engine with a Steve Harris big valve cylinder head and twin SU carburettors, this is mated to a Jack Knight five speed gearbox. Other mechanical changes include adjustable gas shock absorbers, front disc brakes and 6J alloy wheels. Electric windows, air conditioning, leather trim and Wilton carpets together with an impressive array of clocks and dials complement the interior. This righthand drive Wood & Pickett Mini is a superb example and one that is becoming increasingly rare.

    • Model250 SL Pagoda
    • FE Cat desc‘Every driver who has more than a purely utilitarian interest in automobiles should drive a Mercedes-Benz 250SL at least once in his life. The car is an almost perfect yardstick against which to measure any other car. There are cars with better acceleration, cars with better brakes and cars with better roadholding. But there is no car we can think of that has such a remarkable good balance of performance, safety and comfort, and has them in such an absolutely civilised structure.’ – Car & Driver. First produced late in 1966, the 250 SL used the same bodyshell as the 230 SL that had founded this spectacularly successful sports car dynasty and which it replaced. Minor improvements were made to the interior but the major differences were the new 2.5-litre six-cylinder engine, as fitted to the 250SE, and disc brakes instead of drums at the rear, which made it much safer. The new car’s top speed of around 120mph remained the same but the larger engine significantly improved flexibility and responsiveness. The 250 SL was built for just one full production year making it the rarest model of the ‘Pagoda’ range. This example is presented in black with matching black leather interior, black hood and a manual gearbox. Also included is the factory hardtop which was originally from New York. We understand the engine does run but this is a restoration project and hence the extremely competitive guide price. These are sought after models and totally restored examples are fetching six figure sums in some instances.

    • Model911/993 Carrera 4 Cabriolet
    • FE Cat descThe Porsche 993 was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the 964 generation of the iconic 911 model and was built until 1998. Regarded by many as the best generation of 911s ever produced from Stuttgart, this car was the last to use the air cooled flat six engine that had powered 911s for the previous thirty years. The 993 was offered in a number of guises and specifications during its production life including two and four wheel drive trains, known as Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 respectively. The 993 was the first generation 911 to have standard six-speed manual transmission. The Carrera, Carrera S, Cabriolet and Targa models (2WD) were available with a Tiptronic four-speed automatic transmission which was first introduced in the 964. The 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet on offer here was first registered in August 1996 and looks fantastic in the rare colour of Arena red with a black hood. A six-speed manual car, this example has a comprehensive and documented history file full of invoices, stamped service history book and its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Fitted with Porsche 996 GT3 wheels, the car is otherwise remarkably original. Having covered less than 500 miles per year since 2011, this well maintained car represents the opportunity to acquire a highly desirable and rare specification Porsche 911. We are informed the car runs and drives very well and all electrics work including the hood and rear spoiler. Supplied with V5C registration document, MoT test certificate valid until September 2019, tracker and comprehensive service history this fantastic 993 is ready to be enjoyed immediately.

    • ModelE-Type Series I Roadster
    • FE Cat descIntroduced in 3.8 litre form in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. While, inevitably, the car's stupendous straight-line performance and gorgeous looks grabbed the headlines, there was a lot more to the E-Type beneath the skin. The newcomer's design owed much to that of the racing D-Type and, indeed, the E-Type would be one of the last great sports cars developed directly from a successful competition ancestor. Just as in the D-Type, a monocoque tub formed the main body/chassis structure while a ‘picture-frame’ extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8 litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. This car was originally registered in March 1962, it is a desirable righthand drive, 3.8 litre, manual coupé example and was originally sold in red but now presents in British Racing Green. Comprehensively restored by the deceased, Mr. Jillings, in 1987, the work appears to have been to a very high standard and we are informed this was considered a 'nut and bolt' restoration by the current vendor and second owner, who is an engineer by trade. Mr. Jillings had decided to convert this car from a coupé to a roadster and considering this is an older restoration, upon inspection, much of the car appears very close to the standard that would have been seen post restoration. A sticker on the odometer indicates that the car may have covered just 3,000 miles since the restoration. The current odometer reading of 76,825 is also thought to be correct. Recently fully recommissioned since having been stored inside, this car is now in fabulous order. The interior presents as new and the underneath of the car is also in outstanding condition. The history file supplied with the car is comprehensive surrounding the dates of the restoration with many invoices and receipts coupled to previous MoT test certificates, a handbook and service manual. This is a very desirable conversion, carried out to a very high standard, by a talented engineer with provenance to match and thus will surely be a very attractive proposition to a potential 3.8 litre, Series I, E-type owner.

    • Model250 SL Pagoda
    • FE Cat descMercedes-Benz has been producing an SL (Sport Leicht) model or range of models since 1954 when the landmark 300 SL was unveiled. The similarly styled, but mechanically unrelated, 190 followed in 1955, completing the first generation of cars. Their successor was the W113 series SL which proved to be more comfortable than the former and faster than the latter. The 250 SL is the rarest of all the SL's as they were only made for one year, of these and most were fitted with automatic gearboxes. This example is presented in dark red with beige leather interior and has a black hood. The factory hardtop is included which is also in dark red, the engine is not the original but is a larger capacity from a 280 SE model. This is mated to an automatic gearbox and some would even say that this engine may be preferred as it would provide better performance potentially. It was imported five years ago from an American dealer and comes with its original US Title document. We are informed by the seller that the engine does start and run but it is being sold as a restoration project! These are highly desirable models and restored examples are achieving six figure sums in some instances.

    • ModelS4
    • FE Cat descThe Audi S4 is the high performance variant of the original Audi A4, manufactured from 1991 until 1994. All subsequent S4s since 1997 have been based on the Audi A4 and as the A4 has evolved from one generation to the next, so has the S4. A more powerful engine, larger upgraded brakes, firmer suspension, larger wheels, and distinctive styling have always been amongst the many upgrades the S4 receives over its mainstream A4 siblings. Powered by a 4.2 litre V8 engine and with great ergonomics the S4 is a superb car to drive. A manual gearbox makes this a true driver’s car and one that travels with alacrity. Originally supplied by Jersey Audi in St. Peter, this example was originally registered on 26th April 2006 and was registered with DVLA Swansea on 1st August 2017. The fastidious vendor put the car into VAS Motion in Guildford in February 2018, at that time the front upper and lower wishbones were replaced, with other additional work the invoice amount was £3,338.18. A service was carried out on 24th April 2019 at 57,209 miles and with a well stamped service book from Jersey, clearly this has been a well maintained Audi. Finished in blue with black leather interior, this Audi S4 is supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate together with the original handbooks.

    • ModelBGT
    • FE Cat descThe MG B was launched in May 1962 to replace the MG A. Introduced as a four-cylinder roadster, a coupé with 2+2 seating was added in 1965 with production continuing until October 1980. The MG BGT sported a ground-breaking design by Pininfarina on launching the sporty 'hatchback' style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the GT offered the utility of a hatchback while retaining the style and shape of a coupé. This new configuration was a 2+2 design with a right-angled rear bench seat and far more luggage space than in the Roadster. Relatively few components differed although the MG BGT did receive different suspension springs and anti-roll bars and a modified windscreen which was more easily and inexpensively serviceable. Acceleration of the GT was slightly slower than that of the Roadster due to its increased weight. Top speed improved by 5mph to 105mph due to improved aerodynamics. Originally registered on 16th September 1975, this MG B was manufactured as a ‘rubber bumper’ model and was converted to the more aesthetically pleasing chrome bumpers by the vendor in March 2015. He has owned this delightful example for the last six years and is only selling her due to lack of suitable storage space. The grey coachwork is in good order as is the black interior. The fastidious vendor has always had the car well maintained and she looks lovely sitting on chrome wire wheels. With a substantial service history and a speedometer change, it is thought the total mileage covered by this MG BGT could be around 40,000 miles although this is not warranted. MG’s are an ideal first classic car as they are relatively simple to maintain and any parts required can be sourced from the various Owners Clubs. Offered for sale without reserve, this MG BGT is a particularly handsome example.

    • FE Cat descThe Silver Shadow broke new ground for the Crewe Company in a number of key areas, from the sophisticated fully independent suspension with an advanced self-levelling system to four wheel ventilated disc brakes. The only major components carried over from the Silver Cloud III was the excellent, all aluminium, 6.2 litre V8 and four-speed automatic transmission with fluid flywheel, the latter replaced by GM’s excellent 400 three-speed box in October 1968 while the engine was enlarged to 6.75 litres the following year. Although no power output was ever divulged by the company, merely described as ‘adequate’, the Silver Shadow’s superior aerodynamics meant the car was perfectly happy cruising the motorways. No less than eight individual Connolly hides were used to trim the interior of each car and the standard of finish on the upholstery, rich Wilton carpets and burr walnut veneers was impeccable. Each Silver Shadow employed 20 electric motors, powering everything from the radio antenna to adjusting the individual front seats. Build quality on the Silver Shadow remained unsurpassed, each taking no less than 12 weeks to build from start to finish. This Rolls-Royce was originally registered on 14th June 1979 and is finished in Champagne with beige leather trim. This car has been in storage for a number of years although periodically she has been run and moved. A new battery was fitted and she fired up almost instantly. Having been driven on private land it appears the gearbox and brakes are working fine although clearly this Silver Shadow II will require recommissioning. The bodywork shows no significant signs of rust and it is thought the paintwork will improve dramatically with a machine polish. Likewise the leather interior would benefit from some hide food and a clean. Supplied with a V5 registration document, these Rolls-Royces have become increasingly popular in recent years with good examples regularly selling for £20,000 and above.

    • ModelSL 500
    • FE Cat descFollowing the resounding success of the R107, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL had a rather tough act to follow, as it still had to carry on the tradition of a fast and reliable grand touring convertible. The advantage that the designers had with the R129, was technology! By the time the final car rolled off the production line in 1989, these earlier models had been in production for 18 years with very little change. Therefore, the SL 500 featured many new and innovative ideas, such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi link rear axle. In addition to this was a fully operating electric roof, windows, door mirrors and seats, which made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The new SL also had a more powerful engine and the stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance. This lovely example is presented in Brilliant Silver metallic with Mushroom leather interior. It has air conditioning, electric seats which are also heated and electric windows. Its dark blue hood is electrically operated and the car also comes with its factory hardtop. The present owner purchased this Mercedes-Benz from a dealer in 2009 and there was only one previous owner before him. The maintenance booklet shows that a Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI) was carried out by Mercedes-Benz Diplomatic and Tourist Sales in Piccadilly and with Mercedes-Benz UK dealer stamps. Despite being righthand drive, the car had a kilometre speedometer. The dealer changed this for the present owner upon purchase and he has retained the old unit and the Mercedes-Benz dealer’s invoice showing a final reading of 38,621km, which converts to 23,998 miles! As of August 2019, the present owner has covered a further 6,061 miles which is the speedometer reading, therefore giving a total mileage of 30,059 from new. The present owner has had annual services carried out by specialists and whilst the car is without a catalytic converter, all MoT test certificates should be done non CAT. A hardtop stand which is not Mercedes-Benz is included in the sale and the car has been garaged during this ownership.

    • ModelTurbo R Long Wheelbase
    • FE Cat descDUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION These Bentley Turbo Rs are a high-performance cars which were produced from 1985 to 1999 and were the envy of many. The 'R' stood for 'roadholding', to set it apart from its predecessor. It initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo and also sported a retuned suspension and wider tyres on alloy wheels which was a first for a Bentley. From the 1987 model year, the Turbo R’s V8 engine was upgraded with fuel injection for added torque. Motor Trend called the Turbo R, 'the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name', synonymous with the golden era of racing with the likes of the Bentley Boys and Brooklands circuit. This 1997 Bentley is the desirable long wheelbase model which is presented in Black Sapphire with Parchment leather interior. The car benefits from lovely wooden picnic tables set into the rear of the front seats and also, at a vast cost of £8000, the vendor fitted cocktail cabinets with cut glass decanters and tumblers, which are located in the rear, providing even more on-board luxury. He also had a marine fridge fitted which is situated in the boot, ensuring the champagne is always at the desired temperature! These were all fitted in 1999. This car has clearly been cherished from new, with many thousands being spent to keep it in the best condition possible, with the latest invoices showing circa £17,000 having been spent in 2017 at the renown Bentley and Rolls-Royce specialists, Frank Dale and Stepsons. Numerous invoices, old MoT test certificates and correspondence, dating from 1998 can been seen in the history file. The current owner is a Bentley Drivers Club member and has attended many rallies, including Blenheim Palace, Silverstone and Le Mans. This is a fantastic car at a fraction of the cost from when it was new.

    • ModelE-Type Series III V12 Roadster
    • FE Cat descThe E-Type Series III was introduced in 1971, with a new 5.3 litre, V12 engine, uprated brakes and standard power steering. Optionally, an automatic transmission, wire wheels and air conditioning were available. The brand new V12 engine came with four Zenith carburettors and was claimed to produce 272bhp, more torque, and a 0-60mph acceleration of less than seven seconds, which was phenomenal for the price of the car at that time, considering its competition in the market place. The short wheelbase fixedhead coupé body style was discontinued, with the Series III available only as a convertible and 2+2 coupé. The newly used longer wheelbase now offered significantly more room in all directions. These models were easily identifiable by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. It is thought that only 7,990 convertibles and 7,297 fixedhead cars were produced. This righthand drive Jaguar E-Type V12 Roadster is a UK supplied car fitted with manual transmission. It is finished in its original Green Sand coachwork with Olive leather interior and has covered just 50,000 miles from new. The previous vendor purchased this car from an elderly gentleman who had it for many years. The car comes with all of its original service/instruction books including the original service book which shows the early service records. There is also a large file of receipts showing work done on the car by the present owner, this includes a £12,000 bill for work carried out by Southern Classics for mechanicals and around £4000 at the Trim Centre for the seats which were rebuilt but have maintained their original leather. The doors and sills have been wax oiled and according to the vendor, he believes, no welding work has ever been done to the chassis, as can be seen upon inspection. This example is in very good condition and the mileage is thought to be correct, which the condition would support; it also comes with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The car has done just over 3,100 miles in the last 11 years and has been MoT'd eight times in that period. This is a wonderful and evocative British classic which still makes your hair stand on end when the howl of its V12 can be heard when flat out!

    • ModelMk. II Saloon (3.8 litre)
    • FE Cat descThe 2.4 saloon of 1955, retrospectively known as the Mk. I, had been a major step for Jaguar, marking the change from a coachbuilt chassis to one of unitary construction. It was in October 1959 that the Mk. II version appeared, resulting with a good car becoming even better. Similar in appearance but with a much larger glass area, it boasted a wider rear track to improve road holding together with minor front suspension changes to reduce body roll and all round disc rather than drum brakes. Engine options included the 120bhp, 2.4 litre; the 210bhp, 3.4 litre and, for the first time, the 220bhp, 3,781cc unit of the Mk. IX. We are delighted to offer this splendid example of the top of the range Jaguar Mk. II that, according to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, was originally manufactured on 5th February 1965, distributed by Henlys Ltd. of London and registered and sold by Pollards Garage, Chelmsford on 8th March 1965. It is fitted with the most desirable options of a 3.8 litre engine, four-speed manual with overdrive gearbox, power steering and reclining front seats. In addition to the standard options, Coopercraft brakes have been fitted on all four corners and the Coombes style wheel arch spats have been fitted to the rear. This example was subject to a full repaint within the last three years and has had more than £20,000 spent on it within the past five years on regular servicing, replacement parts and upgrades with all the bills an invoices to detail work carried out. There is a comprehensive history file with the car including photos of the car during an earlier restoration, as well as many previous MoT test certificates and tax discs. The vehicle itself is in superb condition throughout and sits on a set of chrome wire wheels whilst the contrasting red leather interior shows very few signs of wear and exudes a charming patina. The exterior gunmetal coachwork is in excellent order and a look underneath confirms this area is excellent also. This Jaguar still retains its original toolkit and importantly, we are informed, drives very well. Although not required, this Jaguar has an MoT test certificate valid until June 2020 and is complete with a UK V5 registration document, owner’s manual, workshop manual and the afore mentioned large history file. Rarely does a Jaguar, 3.8 litre, Mk. II come to sale with these specifications and offered with this fabulous colour combination and condition.

    • Model80 Cabriolet
    • FE Cat descThe Audi 80 was manufactured by the subdivision of the Volkswagen Group across four generations from 1966 to 1996. It shared its platform with the Passat from 1973 to 1986 and was available as a saloon and estate version, the latter marketed by Audi as the Avant. The Audi 80 obtained a major facelift in the autumn of 1991, although the UK launch was not until early 1992. It was from then on known internally as the B4. Changes from the previous model included a longer wheelbase, a redesigned fuel tank and rear axle to enable the use of folding seats, 15" wheels with more prominent wheel arches, redesigned and painted rear and front bumpers, as well as higher-quality materials for the interior, and a larger boot. The front grille was merged with the bonnet and given a bolder look. This well maintained Audi was originally registered on 3rd June 1993 and presents in good condition. A new hood was fitted in 2015 and, we are advised, she drives well with no known faults. These stylish cabriolets are synonymous of the time and benefitted from a period of ‘over-engineering’ by the VAG group. The 2.3 litre, five cylinder engine is a reliable unit with a suitable level of torque for such a car. Finished in white with a blue interior, this Audi is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 5th June 2020. Offered for sale without reserve.

    • Model500 F
    • FE Cat descIn 1965, Fiat introduced an up-rated version of the Nuova 500 referred to as the 500F, (or Berlina), which carried on in production until 1973. The 500F’s altered bodywork featured front-hinged doors and a shortened sunroof, while mechanical improvements included a strengthened transmission. Power output increased to 22bhp at 4,400rpm and the top speed to within a whisker of 60mph. Production of Dante Giacosa’s immortal design ceased in 1975, by which time almost four million Fiat 500s of all types had been produced. Sold new to Sicily in 1971, this lovely little example of a Fiat 500 F spent all its life there until being imported to the UK in 2016 after the vendor, whilst on holiday, complimented the then owner and restorer of the car on its lovely condition. Little did he realise at that moment he would soon be buying the car and bringing it home with him! The car was restored with an Abarth theme; an Abarth specification engine was fitted with a Weber carburettor, special exhaust and uprated interior and styling modifications. The car starts on the button and has barely covered any miles since its arrival in the UK. So limited has been its use here that the vendor never got around to registering the car, but has all the information needed to do so, allowing the new owner to be the first UK registered keeper. The car comes supplied with all the documentation required for registration, MoT test certificate valid until May 2020 and its history file. Motoring doesn’t get much more fun than this!

    • Model300 SL Roadster
    • FE Cat descThe SL model has been part of the Mercedes-Benz line-up since 1954. The first generation of cars was completed in 1955 with the 190. The second generation began with the 230 in 1963 and was distinguished by its distinctive optional hardtop that earned the model its nickname ‘Pagoda top’. The factory codename for the SL launched in 1971 was R107. This model enjoyed an impressive build run until 1989, the second longest in the German manufacturers history. Over its eighteen year reign, the R107 range was powered by no less than eight different engines, two sizes of straight-six unit and six versions of V8’s. This lovely 300 SL example is presented in the wonderful colour combination of red with a black cloth interior and a black hood. Accompanying the car is the original factory hardtop and stand which is also in good condition. This car comes with electric windows, a new stainless steel exhaust, an MoT test certificate which expires in June 2020 and is ready to be enjoyed.

    • ModelSP250 ‘B’ Series
    • FE Cat descAn unusual departure for a firm more noted for its stately limousines, the SP250 sports car was Daimler's final fling before its acquisition by Jaguar. Aimed at the North American market and launched in 1959, the SP250 employed a separate ladder-type chassis on which sat controversially styled glassfibre coachwork manufactured by Daimler themselves. Four-wheel disc brakes were an unusual feature at the time, but unquestionably the car's biggest virtue was its 2.5-litre V8 engine, designed by the legendary Edward Turner of Triumph motorcycles fame. An outstandingly flexible unit, the smaller of Daimler's two V8s produced 140bhp, an output good enough to propel the SP250 to a top speed of 125mph. In keeping with the demands of its intended market, automatic transmission was available as an option. The model survived Jaguar's 1960 take-over, benefitting from its new owner's attention that resulted in the much-improved 'B' version. Introduced in April 1961, the SP250 'B' boasted a stiffer chassis and thicker glassfibre coachwork, while its 'C' replacement, introduced in April 1963, differed only in detail. Sadly, the Jaguar E-Type's arrival meant the SP250's days were numbered and production ceased in 1964. This lovely example of this rare model is presented in superb condition throughout having been totally nut and bolt restored over a five year period between 2010 and 2015. All invoices, as well as a full photographic history of the work carried out, can be seen in the history file. Its light blue paintwork is in lovely condition as is the dark blue leather interior, complimented by its matching tonneau and hood. The car does retain its original factory hard top which is unrestored and has covered a mere 2,000 miles since the engine was rebuilt. It also benefits from a rack and pinion steering unit, new stainless steel exhaust, modern seat belts and an electronic ignition. The history file is extremely comprehensive and makes for fascinating reading with invoices going as far back as 1962 and a small note book belonging to one of the owners in 1962, who recorded how much fuel he put in the car, at what mileage and what the cost was! Remarkable! The car also comes with its original owner’s handbook and a small handbook supplement for accessories and extras. This is one of the finest SP250s on the market and being the series ‘B’, is certainly the more desirable.

    • ModelV8 Coupé
    • FE Cat descThe Aston Martin V8 Coupé was introduced in 1996 as a development of the original Virage model. Powered by a revised version of the 32 valve 5.3 litre V8 engine, the V8 coupé was a much improved car due to the investment of the Ford Motor Company resources. The styling cues followed that of the Vantage but without bonnet vents and wide wheels. The distinguished look included a new mesh radiator grille and air intakes in the front spoiler, giving a purposeful aerodynamic stance. This model formed part of the Aston Martin range for just three years and is one of the rarer members of the modern V8 family. All the body panels are hand crafted in aluminium. Requiring ten Connolly hides, each luxurious interior could be tailored to individual tastes. Burr walnut is used for the facia panel, centre console and door cappings and the finest Wilton carpet for the floor covering. Amazingly, there are a minimum of twelve separate coats of paint applied to each complete body. There is also power assistance for the adjustment of the driver and front passenger seats. A sophisticated climate control system is provided together with a stereo, radio, cassette and CD player. This three owner car has been in the tenure of the current vendor since 2004, it has a full service history and includes the reg plate V80 AML. This lovely and desirable example is one of the very last of the hand-built Aston Martins and was first registered by Grange Aston Martin as a demonstrator on 29th September 1999, it remained in their care until August the following year when it was sold to its first owner, Mr. Peter Bond. Mr. Bond owned the car for two years before selling it to Jonathan Durden who kept it for just over a year before it was registered in the name of a dealer, Lancaster Cars, who then in turn sold the car to the present owner. When in conversation with the previous registrar of the AMOC, the current owner discovered that the paint finish ordered when new, Montrose Blue, was a unique choice with this being the only Aston Martin of any model produced in that colour. The car’s interior, cream Connolly hide is in excellent condition as are the walnut door cappings and facia, as one would expect with such a low mileage example. There is a good service history with invoices and records showing proof of mileage. This fabulous Aston Martin looks stunning in its unique colour and in this condition, would grace any collection or be the pride of place at any show or just enjoyed on the open road.

    • ModelModel 48 Saloon
    • FE Cat descThe Model 48 was an update on Ford's V8-powered Model 40A, the company's main product. The 1935 Ford's combination of price, practicality, and looks vaulted the company ahead of rival Chevrolet for the sales crown that year, with 820,000 units sold. Ford at the time stopped producing a four cylinder engine offering only the 3622cc V8 that was fitted to every car and truck. Visually, the 1935 Ford was much more modern with the grille pushed forward and made more prominent by de-emphasized and more-integrated bumpers. A major advance was a true integrated boot on the saloons. A standard model and Deluxe option were available with extras being offered including an oil pressure gauge, two windscreen wipers instead of just one for the driver and a radio. This rare four door Model 48 was originally registered on 31st December 1935. The condition of this Ford is remarkable taking into account it is has been on the road for 84 years and is largely original. The penultimate owner was a garage proprietor and kept the car for 30 years, it was always dry stored and as such is a rust free example. A replacement engine was fitted in 1994 and the car has covered less than 1,000 miles since. The car is complete with nothing missing and offers a great opportunity to purchase a stylish Ford of the period and one that has the familiar sound of a V8. Supplied with a V5C registration document, this righthand drive example was manufactured at Dagenham and could be described as a true piece of motoring history.

    • Model420 SEC
    • FE Cat descThe W126 was a series of flagship vehicles for Mercedes-Benz. Debuted in September 1979 as the successor to the earlier W116 range, the W126 was the second generation to officially bear the S-Class name referring to Sonderklasse or ‘special class’. The W126 was initially offered as straight-6, V8 and turbo diesel engine saloon cars. In September 1981, a two-door Coupé version of the W126 was introduced. Compared to its predecessor, the W126 was more aerodynamic, fuel efficient, capacious and powerful. The W126 S-Class sported a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other vehicles in the company's line-up. The W126 line also introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first airbag supplemental restraint systems, seatbelt pre-tensioners and traction control system. Originally registered on 7th February 1990, this handsome Mercedes-Benz has been restored and as such presents in excellent order throughout. The bare metal respray included the fitting of new wings and the necessary fabrication work. The Nautic Blue coachwork is virtually unmarked and the Mushroom interior defies its 29 years of age. Mechanically this 420 SEC has been very well cared for with the engine being fully rebuilt. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate, this pillarless coupé is an iconic vehicle of the period and is becoming recognised as one of Mercedes-Benz’s finest designs. With values of SEC’s increasing significantly of late, this example is certainly one of the best we have seen and taking into account the estimate, is sure to be in demand.

    • ModelXJS V12 (6.0 Litre)
    • FE Cat descLaunched in 1975, the Jaguar XJS 21 year production life was a testimony to the excellence of its basic design. Its excellent ride and handling balance was justly praised by the contemporary motoring press. The XJS's superlative 5.3 litre developed some 295bhp in later fuel injected form and when allied to automatic transmission gave authoritative 150mph performance. The car was re-engineered in 1991 with the rear side windows enlarged and a new four litre engine. The rear section benefitted from the new ‘facelift’ rear lights. The V12 engine's capacity was enlarged to 6.0 litres in May 1992 and it had a power output of 227kW (304hp). Originally registered on 12th May 1993, this delightful XJS benefits from recently having had over £3,500 worth of work undertaken, the most recent works included a new radiator installed in September 2018. The paintwork is in very good order as is the grey leather trim. These ‘end of the line’ XJS’s are generally viewed as being the most stylish and reliable. Aesthetically pleasing, this is a coupé of stunning lines and proportions with a well-designed cockpit area featuring simple to read instruments and buttons within easy reach. Supplied with a V5C registration document, together with a current MoT test certificate, this Jaguar offers excellent value and represent a high quality motorcar at nearly 30 years old.

    • ModelThriftmaster Pick-up
    • FE Cat descChevrolet began building pick-up trucks at the start of World War I and, in the first year of production, about 900 rolled off the line. By 1942, when civilian production stopped, Chevrolet had produced two million trucks. Clearly they were doing something right. Although a number of body styles were available including pick-ups and cab only models, the basic styling and design changed very little. This eye catching Chevrolet is somewhat different from the day it was built in 1949. The impressive sound of the 5.7 litre Chevy motor needs to be experienced at first hand. Fitted with an air suspension system, running boards and white wall tyres, we are informed by the vendor that this pick-up truck is a real head turner. We are also informed that the bullet holes are for effect only and we didn’t feel like arguing!

    • ModelDBS Volante
    • FE Cat descThe Aston Martin DBS was a grand tourer based on the DB9 and replaced the 2004 Vanquish S as the flagship model. The DBS name had been used once before on their 1967-1972 grand tourer coupé and the modern car was officially unveiled at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on 16 August 2007, followed by the more traditional 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. The convertible version of the DBS, dubbed the DBS Volante, was unveiled at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show followed this time by the 2009 Concours d'Elegance. The DBS Volante included a motorised retractable fabric roof controlled by a button in the centre console which could fold into the compartment located behind the seats in just 14 seconds. Impressively the roof could also be opened or closed even at speeds up to 30mph. Other features included rear-mounted six-speed manual or optional six-speed ‘Touchtronic 2’ automatic gearbox and a Bang and Olufsen BeoSound DBS in-car entertainment system with 13 speakers. The DBS was selected to be the service issue Aston Martin for the 2006 James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, and starred in a record breaking action sequence towards the end of the film and an exhilarating opening scene for Daniel Craig's second outing as Bond. This stunning example is offered in Meteorite Silver with fantastic Obsidian Black leather and Piano Black facia trim. 'Fully loaded', this example boasts a Bang and Olufsen surround sound system and diamond cut wheels. As well as presenting immaculately, the background with this car is similarly impressive with a full service history and the last service in April 2019 at Aston Martin, Reading. The DBS is sure to be a future classic, it looks and sounds fabulous especially with the roof down and is described as the only Aston Martin for a serious collector or investor. This low mileage, fine example is sure to pay generous dividends in years to come and what better way to wait than imagining yourself as a suave 007. * Interested parties should note the number plate shown is to be retained and a new, age-related registration issued instead. *

    • ModelXJ-S (4-litre)
    • FE Cat descThe XJ-S is a different kind of cool. Launched as a replacement for the E-Type, it proved a useful stepping stone after the V12 E-Type, even using the same essential engine. This provided effortless touring combined with advanced performance now synonymous with Jaguar. The recipe worked, and worked well with nearly a 21 year production life. The model evolved over the years and one such variation was an increase in cylinder capacity to four litres from the six cylinders, 3.6 litre version. A more refined engine, these models are now sought highly prized. This example is indeed a four litre coupé with automatic gearbox and finished in Flamenco red with oatmeal leather trim. Whilst the lacquer to the rear has suffered and requires attention, the usual Jaguar refinements that are associated with such a marque can be found on this car including anti-lock brakes, electric seats and power steering. With good oil-pressure, a stainless steel exhaust system, a fresh MoT test certificate and a new service, this perennially popular classic is offered without reserve.

    • Model911/997 GT3 Generation I
    • FE Cat descIn February 2006, Porsche revealed the second generation 997 GT3, now commonly known as the 997.1 GT3. In addition to a new 3.6 litre flat-six engine, the vehicle featured 'zero lift' aerodynamics meaning the car creates only aerodynamic downforce and no grip-diminishing 'lift' upwards and away from the road surface. The vehicle made use of a modified, track oriented version of Porsche's active PASM suspension, making it the first of Porsche's RS or GT3 versions to feature an electronically adjustable suspension system. Also available was a navigation system and Porsche's 'Sports Chrono' gauge package. The GT3 has a 0-60mph time of just 4.1 seconds and has a top speed of 193mph but Road and Track magazine were able to achieve a 0-60mph run in just 3.8 seconds when testing. Porsche's official test driver, Walter Röhrl, also completed the Nürburgring Nordschleife in seven minutes and 42 seconds with the 997 GT3 in 2006, an impressive time for the 911. This iconic generation one 997 GT3 Comfort is coupled to a six-speed, manual transmission. First registered on 25th November 2006, this car is finished in metallic Basalt Black with full black leather interior and Alcantara seat inserts, door cards, steering wheel, gearknob and handbrake. It has covered a mere 46,585 miles and is offered in stunning condition throughout. Owned by a significant Porsche collector and enthusiast, this car is not wanting for specification with unmarked 19" GT3 alloy wheels, PCM 2.1 satellite navigation and telephone preparation, Sports Chrono Package Plus, PSE (Porsche Switchable Sports Exhaust), climate-controlled air conditioning, full leather/alcantara package, hard-backed sports seats, Sound Package Plus, on-board computer, PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management), traction control, ABS, power steering, remote central locking and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm/immobiliser.

This Porsche is supplied with two keys, the original service book, owner's manuals, supporting service invoices, previous MoT test certificates and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The ECU interrogation shows no ignitions in any of the six rev-ranges which is extremely rare for a GT3 and testament to a carefully driven car. This is a sublime car that drives like only one set-up by Center Gravity would, wonderfully. representing, in our opinion, one of the best value for money 997 GT3s currently for sale.

    • ModelE-Type Series I Coupé (4.2 litre)
    • FE Cat descLaunched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar E-Type was nothing short of a revelation. With its heady blend of supercar performance, breathtaking styling and low price tag, the newcomer left rivals reeling and customers clamouring. Early sportscar racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori amongst others helped cement its reputation. Built as a monocoque with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine, the model's combination of all-round independent suspension rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes gave it excellent road holding and handling capabilities. This genuine righthand drive example E-Type Coupé is an early 4.2 litre car and one that presents in very good order throughout. Finished in the desirable combination of Opalescent Green with Tan interior this handsome Jaguar sits proudly on chrome wire wheels and new tyres. We are advised she drives well with no known faults and benefits from having had a recent service. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a Heritage Certificate this Series I 4.2 is the 18th righthand drive Coupé of 1,583 manufactured and has only had four owners throughout its 55 years on British roads. With good coachwork and chromework together with a tidy interior this car is best described as a very nice genuine example with a very realistic estimate.

    • ModelEscort Sport (1600cc)
    • FE Cat descThe Ford Escort made its show debut at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1968 and quickly became a huge success worldwide. The squarer-styled Escort Mk. II appeared in January 1975 with the first production models having rolled off the production lines on 2nd December 1974. Unlike the first Escort, which was developed by Ford of Britain, the second generation was developed jointly between the UK and Ford Germany. This 1979 Ford Escort 1600 Sport was imported from South Africa to the United Kingdom in 2018. The South African models were originally built in Halewood, England and then assembled in Silverton, South Africa from late 1975 until 1980. Early in 1979, the 1600 Sport was launched, featuring a two-door body shell, revised gear ratios and a sporty look, using the 1600 motor proving to become a highly popular vehicle to the present day. The 'One Six Double O' Sport was the bestselling car in South Africa in 1980. Originally registered in South Africa in 1979, this Escort is finished in orange with a black and grey interior and is described by the current owner as being in very good conditions throughout. The vehicle was restored when it was imported to the United Kingdom and the current owner spent over £10,000 on works including a new gearbox, clutch, heater matrix, new exhaust system, engine rebuilt with new head gasket , new Cibie lights, new wheels, new braking system, new carpets, new fuel pump and new alternator. The electrics were also rewired. Supplied with its V5C Registration document, the current MoT test certificate is valid until December 2019. Desirable classic Fords are in high demand; this Ford Escort is now ready for someone to step into and enjoy.

Launched as a two door, two-seater roadster with an automated textile roof with a shell like, colour matched powered tonneau cover. This new model featured many innovative details for the time including the option of electronically controlled damping and a hidden, automatically extending roll-over bar. Delivered with an impressive number of standard features and a removable hardtop, this new model was to prove a best seller during its successful 13 year production. This limited edition Designo example is presented in metallic blue with a bespoke black Nappa leather interior. One of only 50 cars produced for the UK market, this attractive roadster comes with its factory hardtop and an impressive service history. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in July 2020, this low mileage example has been well looked after by the owner and has covered a mere 59,803 miles from new. This desirable Mercedes-Benz should command serious attention given its sensible estimate.

    • Model911/996 Carrera 4S
    • FE Cat descIn its debut, the 996 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction, namely the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled unit. Other changes included a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a redesigned interior. The performance characteristics remained superb with reliability at its core. This Carrera 4S is the ultimate incarnation of Porsche's 996 with the more desirable 3.6 litre engine and looks to match. This gorgeous metallic grey with black leather trim 911 Carrera 4S benefits from a full service history, the most recent service was with Porsche Torque this summer. Boasting a comprehensive options list which includes upgraded sound pack, full electric heated memory seats, Xenon lights, navigation package, sunroof, rear parking assist and rain sensing wipers, this car is the ultimate combination of serious four wheel drive performance combined with luxury sports car driving. Offered with a book pack and comprehensive history file, the vendor states that the oil filter has been checked at every service for any sign of metal particles and always been clear. This example will have a new MoT test certificate until September 2020 and will surely be very popular. One of the more desirable incarnations of the first water-cooled 996 Porsche, the C4S is a future classic in the making and extremely drivable by modern standards.

    • Model911/997 Carrera 2S
    • FE Cat descThe 997 is the replacement model for the 996. It has kept the 996's basic profile with an even lower 0.28 drag coefficient but draws on the 993 for detailing. In addition, the new headlights revert to the original bug-eye design, drifting from the teardrop scheme of the 996. Its interior is also similarly revised with strong links to the earlier 911 interiors while at the same time looking fresh and modern. This handsome 997 Carrera 2S is offered in the ever desirable metallic grey with full black leather trim coupled to the optional upgraded sports seats. Importantly, in 2018, this example had a full engine rebuild by a well renowned Porsche Specialist which included new liners and pistons, new clutch and flywheel and all of the coolant pipes replaced, invoices for this can be found within the history file. Further optional extras included 19" sports alloy wheels, Xenon lights, navigation package, sports exhaust, and, being a later car, has the uprated IMS bearing. The 997 is a fabulous looking car and this example is no exception, described by the vendor as rattle free with no adverse noises from the suspension and offered with a very attractive estimate, viewing is highly recommended.

    • ModelContinental GT
    • FE Cat descUnveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2003, the first generation Continental GT differed from previous incarnations due to it no longer being a coach built car. However, as a result, the price at launch was significantly less than the Continental R (approximately half) which exposed the car to a much wider customer. Despite the lower price however, the new GT was still roundly well received with celebrities, sports personalities alike buying in droves due to the six litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine with 552bhp coupled to opulent surroundings and an ultra comfortable ride. After all, this was designed to be a mile crunching continent cruiser and with that huge W12 engine coupled to a smooth six-speed automatic box distributed by the Quattro four-wheel drive system, it was equally at home in Mayfair as it was on the Autobahn where it was capable of an astonishing 196mph and a 0-60 time of just 4.7 seconds. The Continental offered the most comfortable way of reaching supercar speeds and, still to this day, is a fabulously capable GT. This example of an early GT is presented in a rare colour combination of Diamond Black with Cinnamon hide. This car boasts massage and heated front seats with electric memory, Xenon headlights, satellite navigation (with European discs) and electric folding mirrors. Offered with a stamped service history booklet, the vendor describes the history as very good indeed. This example boasts the original Bentley telephone and upgraded alloy wheels. Accompanying the car is an MoT test certificate valid until May 2020. Continental GT's are incredible value for money and combine opulence with speed like no other, this example is without doubt very well priced and could represent fabulous value for money.

    • Model380 SL
    • FE Cat descIntroduced in early 1971, this impressive two-seater sports car replaced the 280 SL. The body and chassis of the third generation SL was considerably heavier and longer than its predecessor but it still showed a resemblance. The standard transmission provided a top speed of 130mph and a very respectable 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds. As with the previous generations of SLs, the vehicle came as an open roadster with a removable hardtop roof. The R107 body shape went on to become one of the longest running styles from Mercedes-Benz, remaining in production until 1989 with some 13 variants during the production run. This pleasant example of Mercedes-Benz's 'little black dress' is presented in metallic blue with matching blue interior. Purchased by a company chairman as his weekend conveyance, 361 TTU is described as being huge fun. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate, the sale of this Autobahn cruiser includes the cherished registration number and the all important hardtop. This V8 engined Mercedes promises to give miles and miles of enjoyment to its next owner.

    • Model205 GTi (1.6 litre)
    • FE Cat descThe Peugeot 205 was produced between 1983 and 1998 and was declared 'Car of the Decade' by CAR magazine in 1990. The styling of the 205 is often thought to be a Pininfarina design however Gérard Welter, Peugeot's chief designer, claims it as an in-house design. The car is often credited as the car which turned Peugeot's fortunes around. It is still known to offer a very rewarding driving experience and is mentioned to this day in group car tests of the newest GTi models or equivalent. Peugeot itself never truly recreated this success in subsequent GTi models although they came close with the highly regarded GTi-6 variant of the 306. This stunning 1.6 litre GTi is perhaps the best quality, original example we have had the pleasure to appraise, having covered just 48,864 miles from new which, on reviewing the MoT test certificate history, were covered in 1,000-2,000 increments annually until 2015. This car is presented in, unmarked, Steel Grey with the rare combination of black interior with green Chequeres and deep green carpets, all in time warp condition. Supplied originally with factory sunroof and power steering. The car, which we are informed, performs without fault, is regularly run and has a new MoT test certificate valid until August 2020. Although the 1.9 has drawn many a collector and rightly so, many believe the lighter nose of the 1.6 is the car that won the plaudits, when released in 1983, due to its more nimble and race car like handling and never being strangled by the later catalytic converter. This example, with one owner from new, has a fabulous history file dating back to 1991 where the original sales receipt and brochure are found alongside MoT test certificates from 1994, old tax discs and countless invoices. With a recent large service from a garage in Dorset who, upon completion, wrote in the advisories 'probably the best 205 GTi 1.6 in Dorset'. Offered with all the original handbooks, two keys, original sales brochure, the original sales invoice for £11,966.51 and even an original Haynes 205 manual, this example is frankly an unbelievable piece of 'hot hatch' history. We strongly recommend viewing.

    • Model911/997 Carrera 4S
    • FE Cat descThe Porsche 911 shape and engineering methodology has not changed much since the very first model, the 1939 Series 64. It has proved reliable and, with the finest designers available, has grown in reputation according to developing trends around it. It has proved itself in motorsport just as it has on the French Riviera. In recent years, Porsche breathed life into a new generation of 911, the 996. 2004 saw the launch of the 997 with improved styling, larger 18” wheels and an increase in power. The 997 C4S was, and still is, widely regarded as the greatest non-turbo version of the 911 with the four wheel drive system providing the grip that ensured stable handling and predictable cornering. The Carrera offered today is presented with the best possible specification, it benefits from four wheel drive and is an ‘S’ model with larger 19” wheels, a 3.8 litre engine with a six speed manual gearbox. Additionally sports suspension and a sports exhaust are included as standard. The extensive options list include PCM2 satellite navigation, Xenon lighting, a Sports Chrono Plus package as well as a full black leather interior and alcantara roof lining. The service history is, importantly, comprehensive with stamps from both main agents and Porsche specialists. The terrifying performance on offer combined with reliability and build quality narrow down the choice of sports cars on offer to the Porsche 997 and this represents a superb example.

    • Model348 TS
    • FE Cat descThe Ferrari 348 was a mid-engined, rear wheel drive V8 powered two-seater replacing the 328 in 1989 and continuing until 1995. Badged 348 TB for the coupé (Berlinetta) and 348 TS (Spider) for the targa versions, it features a naturally aspirated 3.4 litre version of the quad-cam, four valve per cylinder engine which was originally found in the 288GTO. As with its predecessors, the model number was derived from this configuration with the first two digits being the displacement and the third being the number of cylinders. The engine, which produced 300bhp, was mounted longitudinally and coupled to a transverse manual gearbox similar to the Mondial T with which the 348 shared many components. The 'T' in the model name TB and TS refers to the transverse position of the gearbox. The 348 was equipped with a dry-sump oil system 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 motor is running due to this setup. The 348 was also fitted with adjustable ride height suspension and a removable rear subframe to speed up the removal of the engine for maintenance. This fabulous privately owned and cherished 348 TS is offered in Daytona Black with full black leather trim, both of which are in very good condition. This is a later revised 1993 example which features the battery to the front for improved handling. Only 261 righthand drive TS examples were produced and in the desirable black on black combination this car can be considered a rare example. Originally supplied to Graypaul Motors in April 1993, this example has a comprehensive history with no less than 14 service stamps in the original service handbook, the most recent with Ferrari specialists, Kent High Performance Cars in March 2019.

    • Model911/996 GT3
    • FE Cat descFollowing the launch of the 911/996, Porsche launched the GT3, the first 996 variant intended for the racetrack. Its 3.6 litre engine was derived from the GT1 and delivered 360bhp at 7,200rpm, offering 60 additional horsepower over the base 3.4 litre motor in the standard Carrera. It was also fitted with adjustable suspension and a unique body kit, including a dual-plane rear wing. The interior featured sports seats, whilst some of the interior trim was removed to keep weight down. Porsche also built a track only version of the GT3, dubbed the GT3 Clubsport. Only a handful of differences can be noted in comparison to the GT3, including the fitment of a full roll cage and a Nomex covered driver’s seat with side airbags omitted. Whilst not generally intended for daily driving, this edition was track-ready in every aspect and able to compete in a number of racing series worldwide. Originally registered on 6th September 2004, this Porsche has only had two former keepers, the vendor having owned her since July 2006. This is a GT3 that presents in excellent order throughout, the metallic Basalt Black coachwork is virtually unmarked as is the full black leather interior. The 3596cc six cylinder engine sounds delightful and mated to a six speed manual gearbox, this Porsche certainly travels with alacrity. Owned by a Porsche enthusiast, this low mileage example comes with a significant amount of invoices and the original handbooks. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a full year’s MoT test certificate, this 996 GT3 is described as driving with no known faults. These cars are best described as a ‘wolf in sheep's clothing’ offering the flexibility of pottering around in traffic or enjoying the power available to your right foot.

    • ModelE36 M3 Evolution Convertible
    • FE Cat descThe BMW E36 series is the third generation of the BMW 3 Series range of entry-level luxury cars, and was produced from 1990 to 2000. Initially available as a coupé only, BMW introduced the M3 convertible and saloon versions in 1994. In 1995, the M3 coupé and saloon were upgraded to the 316bhp, 3.2 litre engines and known as Evolution versions. At the same time, the cars received clear indicator lenses, new wheels and a six-speed gearbox. The E36 M3 chassis was touted as one of the best handling cars of the 90's in independent tests and known for its well balanced handling. This lovely example is presented in metallic Estoril Blue and comes with a white, recently treated, leather interior, a dark blue electric hood and an accompanying hardtop. These models are very much in demand and this particular E36 is no exception to the rule of desirability with its six-speed manual gearbox mounted to the powerful 3.2 litre Evo engine. Sitting on M-style, 24" forged alloy wheels which replaced the standard M3's sunflower style, this Evolution displays just 75,827 miles and boasts a comprehensively stamped service booklet with no less than 16 stamps. The vanos unit has been checked and is quiet and the car has recently had a fresh MoT test certificate, inspection service and clutch. The E36 has long been the unappreciated BMW M3 as it followed the legendary E30, however in recent years collectors are starting to consider how good these examples are, a the significant step forward paving the way for the E46 which was an evolution of the E36 chassis. Prices are on the increase and finding one with low mileage is proving very difficult, it is reasonable to believe that prices will continue to increase.

    • ModelAC Buckland Tourer
    • FE Cat descThe AC Buckland is a true coachbuilt car. The AC factory supplied Buckland Bodyworks with a rolling chassis enabling the Royston based coachbuilder to fit its own five-seater open touring body. The coachwork comprises of an ash frame over which is fitted an aluminium body and ‘suicide’ doors. The relatively lightweight construction of this car enabled the six-cylinder, two litre engine to propel it to a top speed of between 80 and 90mph. It was this performance that encouraged owners to race the AC Buckland at circuits like Silverstone and Brands Hatch. It was the first of the AC cars to race at Goodwood when it ran there in 1953. AC is a British company with an impeccable pedigree with good examples of its cars fetching serious money in the classic car market. Registered in February of 1950, this attractive MoT test certificate exempt Buckland is offered to auction with a V5C registration document that shows, including the vendor, only three former owners. It is thought that no more than 82 of the Buckland Tourer were produced although records are sketchy as the original factory paperwork was lost in a fire. This handsome tourer presents well in cream and red and we are informed it is a joy to drive. A recent invoice from restoration specialists, Rees Bros shows a considerable amount of recommissioning taking place in 2017. 591 YYC is a stunning example of a classic that is ready to be enjoyed.

    • ModelDB7 Vantage Volante
    • FE Cat descIntroduced in 1993 to the public, the handsome new DB7 was 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 of the curvaceous two-door coupé body. At the Geneva Motor Show in 1999, Aston Martin introduced the six litre Cosworth-designed and built V12 engine, developing 420bhp and accelerating from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds with a top speed limited to 185mph. Ian Callum enlarged the grille, added fog lamps and restyled the valances to give the car a more aggressive look. Presented in the beautiful shade of Mendip Blue with matching blue hood, this example is complemented by a Parchment, full leather, interior with Antrim Blue stitching and walnut veneers. The specification is of its time and includes heated electric leather seats, electric windows and mirrors, electric folding roof, Touchtronic gearbox, air conditioning, Alpine Hi-Fi with boot mounted six CD player and unmarked alloys shod with, virtually new, Bridgestone Potenza tyres. The car has covered just 54,696 miles in its 18 years and has had four former keepers who have lavished money on it to maintain its pristine condition. It has an entire Aston Martin main dealer service history with Murray Motor Company, Stratstone Aston Amersham and latterly, the renowned, Aston Martin Works service department in Newport Pagnell, where it underwent a front end strip and refit to repaint stone chips followed by a full body polish. The amazing service history is contained in the stamped handbook and accompanied by a file full of bills and receipts including, but not limited to, replacement tyres, brake calipers and discs, engine sump seal, front lower wishbone bushes, front anti-roll bar drop link bushes, front suspension V mount, final drive output bearings and front shock absorbers, totalling over £7,500. Other receipts for servicing and parts including pads, wheel bearings, coil packs, radiator and more, totalling a further £20,000. Potential new owners should be aware that Aston Martin now offers a fixed price Heritage Service Programme and going forward the annual cost is a much more reasonable at £886 including VAT. The condition of the car is fabulous and everything works. The hood is unmarked with no rips, tears or creases and wear to the interior is minimal as it has been re-connolised. The battery has been replaced and there is a trickle charge cable fitted. We are informed the car starts on the button and roars into life at the first time of asking. An MoT test certificate until May 2020 is offered with the car and it is also presented with tonneau cover, full handbook pack and stereo manuals, a file of bills and receipts and two original keys with fobs. The intoxicating V12 alone is enough to encourage any red blooded male but coupled to the gorgeous body, few could not covet this lovely example.
