1970 Triumph GT6 MK2

Lot # 101 (Sale Order: 1 of 47)      

Known as the poor man's 'E' Type, the GT6 is a 6-cylinder sports coup_ build by Standard-Triumph. It was based on their popular Triumph Spirtfire convertible with a new GT style body designed by Giovanni Michelotti, with production running from 1966 to 1973.The MKI received only one major criticism, it's use of swing-axle rear suspension that it inherited from the Spitfire, which in turn was copied from the Herald small saloon.In response the MKII was unveiled with significantly re-engineered rear suspension, using reversed lower wishbones and rotoflex driveshaft couplings, taming the handling and turning the Triumph into an MGB beater. The 2 litre engine was also up rated to 104bhp and together with other minor refinements enabled Triumph to advertise in 1969 - "New GT6 MKII - more sting in the engine, more cling in the tail" This Triumph GT6 MKII was manufactured on 3rd June 1970 and despatched to Puttocks Ltd. of Guildford, Surrey on 30th September 1970 who registered the car to its first owner on 26th October that year. Sold in 1989 and progressively restored, the MKII is painted blue and for sale with a current MOT valid until March 2018 with no advisories and a UK V5 document. A wonderful British Sportscar which still provides great sporty motoring and the sounds of a 6 cylinder at max revs is one to behold.

1963 Fiat 750 Vignale

Lot # 102 (Sale Order: 2 of 47)      

Carrozzeria Vignale of Turin was founded in 1948 by Alfredo Vignale, it would become one of the most iconic and respected of the Italian coachbuilders. Vignale designed cars, most often low volume variants of main production cars from manufacturers such as Ferrari, Lancia and Maserati. As well as Vignale-penned designs for the previously mentioned titans of the industry, the Turin-based design house was often enlisted by Fiat for prototypes, motor-show concepts and limited editions, much like the 750 which came in Coupe, Berlinetta and Spider body-styles. In essence a Fiat 600, an icon of the Italian economic boom, with its four-cyclinder engine increased from 600cc to a rather zippy 750cc. The bodywork was completely re-styled by Vignale with sleek 1960's Italian styling just as well suited to some of Fiat's Italian contemporaries; the car was bodied at a new factory in Grugliasco, near Mirafiori, whilst the Maserati and Lancia coachwork continued to be done in Turin. The 750 on offer here, finished in a classic colour combination of silver with red interior, was produced in 1963, and had only one owner in Italy until it was imported to the UK in 2016. An interior restoration took place whilst with the previous owner in Italy, and the 36,000 kilometers presumes to be genuine. Offered with UK V5 registration and MOT valid until May 2018, the 750 represents great value for money for a Vignale bodied, collectors example of one of the most iconic 60's Italian cars.

Lancia Delta Integrale HF 16v

Lot # 103 (Sale Order: 3 of 47)      

Between 1987 and 1992, the Lanica Delta Integrale utterly dominated its branch of motor sport, winning 46 rallies and six consecutive World Rally Championships outright. In order to keep the rally car at the sharp end of the results table, the road car went through a number of iterations with each more potent than the last. The second 4WD version of the Delta, the Integrale HF 16v, was introduced at the 1989 Geneva motor show and was an instant success on the rally circuit, claiming victory in the San Remo Rally of that year. The raised bonnet now housed a new 2.0 litre turbocharged 16v engine dispensing 200bhp and a 0-62mph of 5.7 seconds. The 4WD system had been tweaked so that 53% of the power was delivered to the widened rear wheels and paired with the more responsive Garrett T3 turbocharger. This makes the Integrale a true drivers machine which delivers a huge amount of feel and feedback that has made them irresistible from the very beginning. This truly stunning Lancia Delta Integrale HF 16v, with a mere 53,000 miles (86,000 km) from new, benefits from a lovely original leather interior that presents extremely well. For the last ten years the car has been dry stored and during the latest ownership, kept in a carcoon - showing the level of care for this Integrale. Therefore the body shows no signs of rust and the Evo White paint is in superb condition. No expense has been spared in the maintenance of the car either, which has been carried out by Lancia Delta specialists, Walkers. With a comprehensive history file, this is probably one of the best and most original sixteen valve Integrale's out there, which has been lovingly maintained inside and out. An opportunity to buy an excellent example of one of the most iconic Italian cars of the 80's and 90's and a swiftly appreciating modern classic. The car holds a valid MOT and will be offered with the UK V5. View Lancia Delta Integrale HF 16v on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/lancia-delta-integrale-hf-16v' for further details.

1973 Jaguar E-Type V12 Roadster

Lot # 104 (Sale Order: 4 of 47)      

Testing the E-Type Series III back in 1972, Road & Track magazine reckoned the new V12 power unit, 'a sheer delight, by itself almost worth the price of admission. The V12 is a lovely piece of machinery, lovely to listen to and lovely to behold. The exhaust has that hurried sound characteristic of a multiple-cylinder engine where the many explosions per revolution make it sound as if it's running faster than an engine with fewer cylinders. The idle is smooth and quiet with none of the mechanical busyness one normally experiences from the likes of a Ferrari or Lamborghini V12. And the smoothness lingers throughout the rev range.' One consequence of the E-Type's long process of development had been a gradual increase in weight, but a good measure of the concomitant loss of performance was restored in 1971 with the arrival of the sensational Series III V12. Weighing only 80lb more than the cast-iron-block 4.2-litre XK six that it replaced, the new all-alloy, 5.3-litre, overhead-camshaft V12 engine produced 272bhp, an output good enough for a top speed well in excess of 140mph. Further good news was that the 0-100mph time of around 16 seconds made the V12 the fastest-accelerating E-Type ever. Other mechanical changes beneath the Series III's more aggressive looking exterior included ventilated front disc brakes, anti-dive front suspension, Lucas transistorised ignition, and Adwest power-assisted steering, while automatic transmission was one of the more popular options on what was now more of a luxury Grand Tourer than out-and-out sports car. Flared wheelarches, a deeper radiator air intake complete with grille, and a four-pipe exhaust system distinguished the Series III from its six-cylinder forbears, plus, of course, that all-important 'V12' boot badge. The interior though, remained traditional Jaguar. Built in two-seat roadster and '2+2' coup_ versions, both of which used the long-wheelbase floor pan introduced on the Series II '2+2', the Series III E-Type continued the Jaguar tradition of offering a level of performance and luxury unrivalled at the price. Manufactured in October 1973, this Series III E-Type roadster has covered an unbelievably low 2,500 miles from new- having been cared for and caressed by its current custodian since 1990. At this time the car was restored to an exceptional standard ( costing in excess of 120,000 GBP then!)- the car was uprated to the high specification it is today ( details available on request) . It comes with a large history file and a total breakdown with the restoration along with a variety of bills, MoT's and receipts to substantiate the mileage. Finished in iconic primrose, over chocolate bean interior this has to be one of the lowest mileage V12 roadsters to be offered on the open market.

1995 Ferrari 348 Spider

Lot # 105 (Sale Order: 5 of 47)      

The Ferrari 348 first entered production in 1989 as a successor to the immensely successful 328 GTB/GTS. The new car featured a naturally aspirated 3.4 litre quad-cam V8 engine mounted longitudinally so it could be positioned lower in the chassis. Another new development was the transversely mounted five-speed gearbox, derived from the hugely successful 312-T Formula 1 race cars, which helped to lower the centre of gravity and gave the early models their name: TB/TS. In late 1993 the 348 was revised, featuring subtle styling changes and more power, this time producing 320bhp from the same 3.4-litre engine, with an improved engine management system. The suspension was also tweaked to offer even greater handling and ride control in partnership with a widened rear track. This wonderful 348 Spider is offered showing a mere 5,800km recorded, having been stored for 15 years up to 2016. Once out of storage the car was re-commissioned by specialists, receiving new cam belts, alternator and battery. With invoices dating back to 1996 and a fresh MOT this must be one of the lowest mileage 458's in the market.

1986 Porsche 911 3.2 Cabriolet

Lot # 106 (Sale Order: 6 of 47)      

A 'modern classic' if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter's rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. Porsche's first take on a 911 convertible had been the Targa model of 1965, a 'halfway house' design chosen because of fears that a genuine soft-top would not meet US Federal safety regulations, but by 1981 the company felt able to proceed with the genuine article. Introduced in normally aspirated 3.0-litre form in 1982, the 911 Cabriolet lost little, if any, rigidity with the deletion of the Targa roll-over bar, while its speedily raised/lowered top featured a detachable, zip-fastened rear window. Introducing a 'proper' soft-top proved to be a shrewd move by Porsche, as sales immediately exceed those of the Targa version, and the popular Cabriolet continued when the 'Carrera' name was applied to all 911 models in 1983, co-incidentally with the introduction of the 3.2-litre engine. Not merely enlarged, the new engine was also extensively revised and produced 231bhp, 27 horsepower up on its predecessor. The 911 Carrera's top speed was now 152mph, with 100mph reachable in a breathtaking 13.6 seconds. Finished in Stone grey with black interior, this 3.2-litre Carrera Cabriolet was subject to a restoration that finished in 2015, when the car was subject to a respray. The leather interior is reported to be in equally good order. Recently serviced this right hand drive 3.2 offers exceptional value and is offered with a realistic reserve.

1985 Alfa Romeo Spider

Lot # 107 (Sale Order: 7 of 47)      

The Italian co-star Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft had in the 1967 film The Graduate, a sleek red Alfa Romeo 'Duetto' Spider, brought the great marque to the attention of millions who had never heard the name before. It also set a new expectation for stylish, fun open-top driving, with a level of sophistication that artfully slotted in somewhere between Fiat and Ferrari. Through a production run from 1966 until 1994, the evergreen Alfa Spider defined open air sporty motoring for decades. Steady development kept the Spider current through cycles of US emissions and safety requirements and Alfa Romeo found better ways to meet those demands as the years went on. A major advance was the arrival of Bosch electronic fuel injection in 1982, which allowed a measure of performance to return while meeting ever more stringent regulations. The exceptionally well presented Spider on sale today comes from a large UK collection. Most recently it has benefited with 2,600 pound expenditure - converting it to Webber carburettors. Driving beautifully this elegant little Italian sports car is now ready for summer use by its lucky new custodian. For fun per pound per mile, few cars can equal the Alfa Spider. It's an enjoyable companion for long weekend drives or simply for making running Saturday errands feel a bit more like the Mille Miglia.

1998 Ferrari F355

Lot # 108 (Sale Order: 8 of 47)      

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 8250 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; that level of performance combined with its sensational shape made it a worldwide success story. Finished in an unusual and highly attractive shade of Grigio Titanio with a Nero leather interior, this highly attractive F355 has covered a mere 18,000 miles from new. Offered with the relevant Ferrari tools, and UK registered, this is a good example of what is increasingly becoming a very collectible modern supercar.

Finished in an unusual and highly attractive shade of Grigio Titanio with a Nero leather interior, this highly attractive F355 has covered a mere 18,000 miles from new. Offered with the relevant Ferrari tools, and UK registered, this is a good example of what is increasingly becoming a very collectible modern supercar.

1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL

Lot # 109 (Sale Order: 9 of 47)      

In the spring of 1963, Mercedes-Benz debuted an all-new roadster to replace the 190SL and 300SL - the 230SL. The 230SL 'Pagoda' was a stunning Paul Bracq designed two-seat convertible that followed Mercedes' new design language, featuring crisp lines and upright headlights. The 230SL was fitted with a prominent three-pointed star in its grill as a reference to the already iconic 300SL. To save on weight, the hood, door skins, trunk lid, and tonneau cover were all composed of aluminum. The nickname 'Pagoda' was quickly adopted thanks to the slightly concave roof on the optional removable hardtop that resembled a pagoda roof. Although controversial at its introduction, these SLs are now considered a masterpiece of design. In 1967, Mercedes introduced the third and final iteration of the 'Pagoda', the 280SL, and it then became apparent that some cars don't change, they just get better. "The Mercedes-Benz 280SL, the latest version of a line that began as the 230SL in 1963, is the same as ever, just better," concluded Road & Track after testing a 280SL in 1968. "For those who value engineering, finesse and high quality construction, it's alone in the field," enthused the highly respected American motoring magazine, while its manufacturer considered the 280SL: "a Grand Tourer in the traditional sense" and "a unique combination of sports car performance and saloon car comfort (a Mercedes-Benz saloon naturally)." The 280 featured the same modified W111 chassis with a rear swing axle and independent front suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Power came from a 2.8-liter version of Mercedes' robust inline-six and used Bosch fuel injection, a combination producing 160 horsepower in US-market variants, which had to be modified slightly to comply with emissions standards. To compensate, the rear-end ratios were changed in these US-market cars to offer greater low-end acceleration. While the 280SL did not offer the performance of the 300SL, it is a very charming model with capable handling and braking thanks to its suspension and all-wheel disc brakes. These roadsters also have one of the most beautiful bodies produced in the 1960s. Thanks to their robust inline-six and their luxurious Mercedes interior, they are wonderful cars to be driven and enjoyed. If one is looking for the perfect all-around car for rallies, shows and Sunday cruising, this might be the car. The stunning car on offer is finished in the classic white exterior color, over a period correct dark blue leather interior, and Blue soft top. This beautifully restored 280SL was delivered with the desirable automatic transmission from the factory. Recently the subject to a restoration, and with a recent service by Marque specialist it is supplied with UK V5 document, MoT'ed until May 2018 and with various bills and receipts.

1947 MG TC

Lot # 110 (Sale Order: 10 of 47)      

The right-hand drive TC Midget appeared in 1946, and was almost identical in appearance to the pre-war Types TA and TB. These MGs had many endearing features, including a slab fuel tank, 19-inch diameter wire wheels, folding windshields and octagonal dashboard instruments. Sales got a great lift when a Life Magazine photographer shot one being driven underneath a big lumber carrier on a Los Angeles street. Many soon found their way into amateur racing, and almost every one of the legendary American sports car champions of the post-war era began their careers in a TC. The MG TC on offer today is an original UK car, which was exported to Vancouver Island and then repatriated back to the UK where it was the subject of an in-depth restoration. Bills on file total over 23,000 GBP for the work. Most recently the car has been fitted with a new Pickering hood, along with side screens and tonneau covers and is running on Dunlop tyres with new tubes. For those collectors looking for an exquisitely presented T-Series MG, capable of participating in driving events and Concours shows alike, this outstanding example is worthy of serious consideration.

1987 Porsche 928 S4

Lot # 111 (Sale Order: 11 of 47)      

First introduced to the world at the Geneva Salon in 1977, and subsequently voted European Car of the Year in 1978, the 928 was intended as a more refined replacement for the long-running 911. With the 928, Porsche had created a serious long distance Grand Tourer that could also tackle twisting country roads with ease. Thanks to an alloy V8 attached to a rear mounted gearbox and 50/50 weight distribution, the car felt planted and nimble with a vast amount of grip. In 1979 the 928 S with 4.6 litre engine arrived and then in 1986 the model was further revised and restyled, becoming the 928 S4. This latest generation had a twin-cam, V8 producing 320bhp and a top speed of 160mph. This excellent 928 S4 was first registered in February 1987 to HRH Prince Pahlobad before transferring to the current owner in January 2004. Presented in the original colour scheme of diamond blue over blue leather and with only 44,750 miles on the clock, this RHD manual car is in superb condition. Sold with original documents including UK V5, current MOT, maintenance booklet with a long service history, driver's manual and original, complete, on-board tool kit. A wonderful chance to own this unmolested, Porsche V8. View 1987 Porsche 928 S4 on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1987-porsche-928-s4' for further details.

1953 Jaguar XK120 Drophead Coupe

Lot # 112 (Sale Order: 12 of 47)      

It was at the 1948 London Motor Show that Jaguar virtually threw the sports car world into turmoil with its stunning XK120. Here was a car with incredible style and looks, a powerful six cylinder engine installed in an outstanding chassis and a remarkably low price - a quarter that of a V12 Ferrari with similar performance. The combination was unbeatable and without doubt the Jaguar XK120 was an absolute milestone for both Jaguar and the motor industry as a whole. At the heart of the William Lyons styled roadster was that all-new 3,442cc, twin overhead camshaft XK engine producing 160bhp via twin SU carburettors - sufficient for 126mph and 0-60mph in 10.0 seconds. To further push the performance point home, in October 1948, with an aeroscreen and aluminium undershield the only modifications, an XK120 recorded 132.6mph for the flying mile in Jabekke, Belgium, making it indisputably the fastest off-the-shelf production car in the world. The XK120 was also endowed with fine road holding, its steel body - the originally planned limited production run used alloy bodies - clothing a shortened MkV chassis employing independent torsion bar/wishbone front suspension and a semi-elliptic leaf-sprung rear axle, while brakes were all round drums. The XK120 became a massive success both on the road and the track where it scored numerous victories. Many drivers raced the XK120 including Stirling Moss, Peter Walker, Peter Whitehead, Leslie Johnson and Ian Appleyard; indeed, in XK120C/C-Type form it won Le Mans in both 1951 and 1953 and its engine was to power three more Sarthe winners and a whole host of future Jaguars. The XK120 we have for sale here is a desirable right hand drive drophead coupe. The car has had only three owners since it left the factory on 5th December 1953 and was delivered to Mr James Wood in Worthing Sussex. It comes complete with full ownership and some service history spanning 60 years. This matching numbers car comes with a Jaguar heritage certificate. A thorough restoration lasting 4 years has recently been completed including a full engine rebuild and a photographic record of the restoration process is available to the new owner. It is therefore no surprise that the vendor describes the general condition of the car to be excellent. The car is presented in the stunning combination of grey with contrasting red hide interior. One of the finest examples of this legendary Jaguar that can be found on the market today and surely an opportunity not to be missed.

1975 Iso Lele Sport

Lot # 113 (Sale Order: 13 of 47)      

As a prototype, the Iso Rivolta Lele debuted at the 1969 New York International Auto Show. It was a 2+2 configuration that filled the gap between the two seater Grifo and the four door Fidia. The 'standard' Lele also used the Corvette 327 cid V8 with either a manual or automatic transmission. Giugiaro of Bertone styled the Lele, naturally. Based on what came later, therefore, the Iso Lele can rightly be termed today as an act of vision. It resulted from a promise that Piero Rivolta, son of Iso founder Renzo Rivolta, made to his wife, for whom the Lele was named, that Iso would be a full-line car company. Even among Italo-exotica, the Lele is an incredible rarity. A total of 285 Iso's were built from 1970 through 1974, when Iso left the car business with a maximum of 20 Lele Sport models (Lele IR6 Sport) produced. The Sport had the Ford 351 Cleveland V-8 engine uprated to produce 360 bhp (35 bhp more than a standard car) and a ZF five-speed manual gearbox. The Sport was also fitted with additional gauges set into the passenger-side dashboard, Sports trim and lightweight bumpers with chin spoilers and an air intake - all of which are retained in this 1975 Lele Sport. This is a very rare car, there were only 285 Lele's produced, the rarest incarnation was the SPORT of which 40 were produced with only 11 Right Hand Drive versions. These cars were defined by the following features and specification, fitted with the Ford 360 cobrajet engine (5763 cc) producing 360 bhp coupled to a 5 speed ZF gearbox, the Sport was also fitted with lightweight seats and bumpers giving a saving of 550 pounds over a standard car and an extra 35 bhp made this a very potent motor car in period, with a quoted top speed of 167 miles an hour, the sport was also fitted with an integrated front chin spoiler to make it more stable at speed, it also serves to make the car look great, all this at a cost of £11516-00 in 1975 a massive £1571-00 over and above the standard automatic car. ] All this verified by the original price list and sales brochure that come with the car. Finished in red with black leather interior, air conditioning, electric windows and power steering which was an extra on this late car. Showing 34000 miles which I believe to be correct, and fitted with a full length electric sliding roof and a radio cassette. The car has been subject to much recent refurbishment, including a full screens out repaint, new head lining, new window rubbers, 4 x correct Michelin XWX tires, brake over haul, high flow radiator, new clutch, new water pump, cylinder heads removed checked skimmed and refitted with new head gaskets, plus the usual plugs points, leads, coil etc. The car performed extremely well on a recent trip to the Goodwood Members Meeting, a 250 mile round trip, it surprised me greatly by returning over 20 to the gallon! With the price of the ISO Griffo now In excess of £250000-00 this car must surely be an interesting alternative.

1989 Ferrari 412i

Lot # 114 (Sale Order: 14 of 47)      

The Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 was introduced in 1976 as the successor to the rather larger 365 GT 2+2. With its much sleeker looks the Ferrari 365, also designed by Pininfarina, remained in production with very few styling changes until 1989 and proved to be a great success for the company. The 412 was introduced in 1985 and was a technically much improved and modernised version of the classic design, whilst still retaining a timeless and elegant shape. With a displacement of nearly 5 litres, the V12 engine now produced a healthy 340 bhp and ABS was available for the first time in a Ferrari. The Ferrari 412i is the ultimate version of the 400-series of four-seat Grand Touring cars and remains highly respected for its performance, luxury and ease of operation. Just 574 in total were built, of which 85 were right-hand drive. One of the very last of the RHD examples produced, chassis 78339 was chosen to star on the Ferrari stand at the Earl's Court Motor Show in 1989. Since then the 412 has been cosseted and very well maintained, with only two owners in the last 14 or so years. Servicing and repair work has been handled by leading specialist QV Ferrari for much of that time. As testament to the quality of this example the 412 won its class in the Ferrari Owners Club concours in 2006. As maintaining originality has been important the 412 is fitted with a period-correct Blaupunkt stereo, and the correct Michelin TRX metric tyres all round. A new stainless exhaust (fitted in 2014) is a useful upgrade. The 412 shows 28,000 miles recorded from new, supported by a file of invoices totalling c. £20,000. Presented in Chiaro Blue with Crema leather interior, and complete with a file of receipts, service records, relevant articles and publications, this is a wonderful example of a fast and understated V12-engined Ferrari, the likes of which we may never see again.

1965 Citroen DS23 Pallas

Lot # 115 (Sale Order: 15 of 47)      

Despite the rather leisurely acceleration afforded by its four-cylinder engine, the DS was successful in motorsports like rallying, where sustained speeds on poor surfaces are paramount. It won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1959 and, controversially in 1966, after the disqualification of the BMC Mini-Cooper team. The CitroÕ‰n DS placed fifth on Automobile Magazine's '100 Coolest Cars' listing in 2005. It was also named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers. In 1965, a luxury upgrade to the DS, the Pallas, named after the Greek goddess, was introduced. This included comfort features such as better noise insulation, a more luxurious and optional leather upholstery and external trim embellishments. This delightful numbers matching DS23 Pallas was first registered in 1973 and is one of only 33 known examples on British roads today. The DS has benefitted from a significant amount of work in recent times; the engine has been stripped and rebuilt with new piston rings, valves, liners and bearings, and a reground crank, and as such is just being run in, assisted by a newly fitted coil and spark plugs. The famous hydraulic suspension has been overhauled with a new pressure pump and belt, new pipes, a new centrifugal regulator and new suspension ball joints. To improve starting a new starter motor has been fitted, and to improve cornering new tyres have been added to each corner. Fuel delivery has been improved with rebuilt carburettors, new filters, and a new petrol tank pick-up. To keep everything cool a new radiator has been fitted, as has a new waterpump. The bodywork has also been subject to some cosmetic improvement, with a repaint in the original colour. Finished in Blanc Meije with a Wine Red cloth interior, and showing just 49,000 miles recorded from new, this wonderful top of the range DS is offered with a Citroen Heritage Certificate, current UK MoT and UK V5. View 1965 Citroen DS23 Pallas on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1965-citroen-ds23-pallas' for further details.
Despite the rather leisurely acceleration afforded by its four-cylinder engine, the DS was successful in motorsports like rallying, where sustained speeds on poor surface...mores are paramount. It won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1959 and, controversially in 1966, after the disqualification of the BMC Mini-Cooper team. The CitroÕ‰n DS placed fifth on Automobile Magazine's '100 Coolest Cars' listing in 2005. It was also named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers. In 1965, a luxury upgrade to the DS, the Pallas, named after the Greek goddess, was introduced. This included comfort features such as better noise insulation, a more luxurious and optional leather upholstery and external trim embellishments. This delightful numbers matching DS23 Pallas was first registered in 1973 and is one of only 33 known examples on British roads today. The DS has benefitted from a significant amount of work in recent times; the engine has been stripped and rebuilt with new piston rings, valves, liners and bearings, and a reground crank, and as such is just being run in, assisted by a newly fitted coil and spark plugs. The famous hydraulic suspension has been overhauled with a new pressure pump and belt, new pipes, a new centrifugal regulator and new suspension ball joints. To improve starting a new starter motor has been fitted, and to improve cornering new tyres have been added to each corner. Fuel delivery has been improved with rebuilt carburettors, new filters, and a new petrol tank pick-up. To keep everything cool a new radiator has been fitted, as has a new waterpump. The bodywork has also been subject to some cosmetic improvement, with a repaint in the original colour. Finished in Blanc Meije with a Wine Red cloth interior, and showing just 49,000 miles recorded from new, this wonderful top of the range DS is offered with a Citroen Heritage Certificate, current UK MoT and UK V5.

1964 Fiat 500 Jolly

Lot # 116 (Sale Order: 16 of 47)      

Italy's location on the Mediterranean Sea meant innumerable beachfront cities and resorts. There was a brisk trade in beach buggy conversions of regular cars by the many specialist coachbuilders throughout Italy at the time. One such specialist was Ghia, who created the Jolly conversions on Fiat's 500, 600, Multipla and Giardiniera platforms. Known at home as a La Spiaggina, the Fiat beach-buggy was marketed worldwide as the Jolly. It was quite expensive costing around double that of a standard 500 and was bought by the rich and famous (Aristotle Onassis, Yul Brynner, President Tito) as yacht tenders, golf carts and estate runabouts. As a result, most surviving examples have covered low mileages only. They were sold in the USA between 1958 and 1961. Considered a success, the model had a healthy run from 1958 to 1966. The cars' specification included cut-down sides and windshield, a striped and fringed surrey top, and chromed body-pipework. They were available in pink, coral, white, pale yellow and sky blue. Mechanicals were standard Fiat. For a mere two years between 1964 and 1966 an "Economical" version was available and such is the one we have on offer here today. Owned from new by President Josip Broz Tito of Yugoslavia, leader of the Yugoslav guerrilla movement, the Partisans from 1941-44. After the war, Tito became Prime Minister of Yugoslavia from 1944-1953 and President for life between 1953 until his death in 1980, of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Not undermined by its distinctive provenance, this charming Fiat Jolly is an original European version from the limited production run between 1964 and 1966 and not uncommon for these luxury cars, this example has a very low odometer reading of a little over 20,000km or 12,500 miles. One of an estimated 100 surviving Ghia-made Jolly's, this car has spent most its recent past as part of the Classic Automobile Museum's collection in Belgrade, where it was refreshed and subsequently brought to London in preparation for sale. We are told that this rare Jolly 'drive's like new', and included in the history file is a certificate of authenticity from the Classic Automobile Museum's collection in Belgrade confirming that the car was indeed formerly owned from new by Marshal Josip Broz Tito.

1994 Ferrari 348 Spider

Lot # 117 (Sale Order: 17 of 47)      

Introduced in 1989 as a replacement for the very successful 328 series, the 348 production line ran until 1995, when the 355 was took its place. Late in 1993 the 348 saw subtle revisions in the bodywork and a new engine management system giving a power increase from 300bhp to 320bhp from its 3.4-litre V8. At the same time, the suspension was revised and rear axle widened, vastly improving both the handling and ride quality. In a 2015 retrospective, EVO Magazine compared the 458 Italia against its 308, 348, F355, 360 and F430 ancestors, where Henry Catchpole noted the primary highlight of the day being the 348's steering, describing it as, "instantly obvious this car has some of the best steering, possibly the best, that I have ever sat behind." He expounded on the car's analogue character, describing the steering as, "coming alive in my hands. It literally starts wriggling around, talking excitedly about all the bumps in the road and sometimes making a bigger gesture as a camber attracts its attention. Despite the lack of assistance and the wheel's relatively small diameter, it's not heavy in any way, there's just perfect weight and no slack to add to the constant communication." This rare right hand drive, UK delivered 348 Spider is offered in its original Giallofly paintwork with black interior. There is a large history file with details of an extensive recent service carried out at The Supercar Rooms in Worcestershire which included an important replacement of timing belts and a general mechanical overhaul. A great deal of expense and care have been put into this car and it shows 56,500 miles recorded from new. A very original example of this modern classic which is ready to be enjoyed in time for the summer. Private plate 'F1 5PDA' included in the sale.

1950 Bentley Mk VI Convertible

Lot # 118 (Sale Order: 18 of 47)      

The policy of rationalisation begun in the late 1930s continued at Rolls-Royce after the war with the introduction of standard bodywork on the Mark VI Bentley. Rolls-Royce's first post-WW2 product, the Mark VI was introduced in 1946, a year ahead of the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith. Although mechanically similar to the Mark VI, the latter was exclusively a coachbuilt car, the first 'standard steel' Rolls-Royce, the Silver Dawn, not appearing until 1949. A separate chassis was retained, the same basic design being built in three different wheelbase lengths, that of the Mark VI (and Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn) measuring 10' exactly. Notable features were independent front suspension and hydraulic front brakes. Powering the range was a new 4,257cc six-cylinder engine featuring 'F head' (inlet-over-exhaust) valve gear that permitted the use of larger valves than the pre-war overhead-valve unit with a consequent improvement in gas flow. As a concession to the marque's sporting pedigree, the Bentley version was equipped with twin SU carburettors, the Rolls making do with a single Stromberg. The Mark VI was a 90mph car while its interior was typically well appointed, boasting leather upholstery and walnut dashboard and door cappings, while the right-hand manual gear change was a characteristically pre-war inheritance. Despite the popularity of the 'standard steel' body, a coachbuilt alternative remained the preferred choice of many customers. Indeed, of one's preference was for an open car it was the only option, there being no factory-built convertible in either the Rolls-Royce or Bentley range at this time. A rare and desirable right-hand drive example dating from 1950, this wonderful Mk VI carries drophead coup_ coachwork by Rolls-Royce's in-house coachbuilder Park Ward featuring a rare early power-operated hood. Only 45 examples of this body were made, making this Bentley particularly uncommon. The car is beautifully presented and ready for Continental touring. Accompanying documentation consists of sundry invoices and a V5 registration document.

1974 Aston Martin V8 Saloon

Lot # 119 (Sale Order: 19 of 47)      

Aston Martin had always planned that the DBS of 1967 would be powered by the company's new V8 engine, first seen in 5-litre form in the works Lola-Aston Martin sports-racing cars. Production problems, however, intervened and the DBS used the 4-litre, twin overhead camshaft, straight six of the concurrently produced DB6. It was not until September 1967, that the DBS V8 was finally announced with production commencing the following April. With its platform chassis and independent suspension - coil spring/wishbone front, de Dion tube rear with Watt linkage and twin radius arms - the fine handling DBS was a perfect home for Tadek Marek's all-alloy V8. Boasting four overhead camshafts and Bosch electronic fuel injection, the 5,340cc V8 produced an impressive 320bhp at 5,000rpm; the resultant 160mph plus performance was nothing short of sensational in 1970. After David Brown sold Aston Martin in February 1972, the DBS V8 was replaced by the Series II model, now simply called the Aston Martin V8. Gone were the four headlamps and slatted grille and in their place was a black mesh grille flanked by single headlamps. The major mechanical changes were limited to electronic ignition and standard air conditioning. One of only 967 examples built between 1973 and 1978, this stunning example is recognisable by its twin headlights, black grille and the pronounced air intake on the bonnet. We are pleased to note this stunning Aston is fitted with its original 310hp V8 and automatic gearbox, which when combined make for very nicely driving GT car. Finished in a striking combination of Navy Blue metallic with a contrasting grey leather interior, and offered with Dutch title papers, original owner's manual and history file, this is a beautiful thoroughbred GT car which offers strong investment potential for the future.

2005 ASTON MARTIN VANQUISH S

Lot # 119a (Sale Order: 20 of 47)      

Developed from the 1998 Project Vantage concept car, the V12 Vanquish entered production in 2001. The Vanquish marked a large step in the company’s engineering featuring a bonded aluminium chassis combined with many pieces of traditional craftsmanship ushering in a new era for Aston Martin. V12 Vanquish featured a body tub made from extruded aluminium and Carbon Fibre with extensive use of more Carbon Fibre and composite materials throughout the crash structure of the car. This extremely rigid and safe body-shell was then clothed in hand-finished, Superformed aluminium panels. Underneath the handmade bonnet sat a 460bhp version of the Aston Martin V12 engine, delivering its power via a 6-speed manual gearbox controlled by an electro-hydraulic paddle shift gear change. In 2002 the V12 Vanquish became the latest Aston Martin to be driven by James Bond. This special car was painted in Tungsten Silver and was fitted with a number of non-standard options including rockets, guns, ejector seat, and an invisible ‘cloaking device’ – all provided courtesy of ‘Q-branch’ of course. Building on the sales success of the original Vanquish the Vanquish S featured an increase in engine power (up from 460bhp to 520bhp) and revised gear and back axle ratios. Top speed was quoted as being in excess of 200mph, making it one of the fastest Aston Martin road cars built at Newport Pagnell. The exterior panels were still lovingly hand finished in the factory panel shop from ‘Superformed’ aluminium. Discreet changes to the ‘S’ included a bigger, revised grille, front splitter and a raised rear ‘spoiler’ built into the boot lid to keep the car stable at high speed. Inside, the Vanquish S showed what could be achieved with beautiful hand stitched leather. The dashboard and many of the smaller interior pieces were now trimmed in hide adding to the bespoke feel of the already impressive coupe or 2+2. Very late cars adopted updated switchgear, an Aston Martin audio system and standard fit Satellite Navigation screen. Described by the vendor to be in excellent condition, what we have here is an example of the revamped Vanquish S coupe that superseded the original version following its debut at the Paris Auto Show in 2004. Chief upgrade concerned the engine, which now produced 514bhp, an output good enough to make the Vanquish S a genuine 200mph car. The previously optional Sports Dynamic Pack of enhanced steering, suspension and brakes came as standard with the Vanquish S. Finished in black with matching interior, this UK delivered right hand drive Vanquish S has covered a mere 14,000 miles from new and included in the history file is a V5 log book, service history and MOT certificate valid until December 2017.

1964 Bentley SIII Saloon

Lot # 120 (Sale Order: 21 of 47)      

The last Bentley to be built on a separate chassis, in 1962, saw the introduction of the Bentley S3 factory bodied standard steel saloon and at first glance it would appear that the all new S3 was merely an S2 with different headlamps. The introduction of the twin headlamps was clearly the most obvious change but the differences did not end there. Further changes included the introduction of smaller bumper overriders and the repositioning of the front indicators and side lamps into one single unit on the front wing resulting in an arguably more attractive appearance. The S3's interior now had individual front seats in place of the split bench seat found in the earlier S types; some, like this one, had air conditioning, electric windows and front seat belts. Mechanically speaking the S3 was the same as the S2 with a 6230cc Rolls-Royce V8 engine and automatic gearbox but this model was fitted with larger carburettors, improved power steering to aid smoother movement at parking speed and a Lucas vacuum-advance distributor to aid fuel consumption making it almost identical in mechanical specification to the S3 Continental that was being produced at the same time. Presented in Tudor over Shell Grey, this wonderful SIII has covered just 38,000 miles from new- as supported by invoices and MoT certificates- copies of which are available in the cars file. With an MoT until February 2018 and recent work totalling over 3,000 GBP the car comes complete with its original toolkit, jacks, foot pump, tyre tools and fitted torch. An excellent example of the model, which must be one of the lowest mileage examples in existence.

1976 Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2

Lot # 121 (Sale Order: 22 of 47)      

'Most important was the double overhead cam engine. Like Rolls-Royce, no horsepower figure was quoted, but surely it was at least 320. More important was its massive amount of torque. Taken together with the turbine-like characteristics of the V12 engine, it mattered little which gear one was in or at what speed.' Stanley Nowak on the 356GT4 2+2, 'Ferrari on the Road'. Introduced towards the end of 1972, the 365GT4 2+2 was the biggest and best equipped four-seater Ferrari so far. Flagship of the Maranello range, it reaffirmed Ferrari's determination to compete with the world's finest luxury saloons. Based on the preceding 365GT 2+2, albeit lower, longer and wider, the newcomer was fitted with a four-cam version of the 4.4-litre V12 engine while retaining its predecessor's mechanical underpinnings. A total of only 524 had been completed by the time production ceased in 1976. This wonderful and original right hand drive 2+2 Pininfarina Coupe is an example of the ultimate Ferrari of its day and - being one of only 100 right hand drive cars in existence- it is also incredibly rare. Chassis 19603 was the subject of an engine rebuild in 1999. Having covered less than 5,000 miles since the carburettors and clutch were replaced in 2014, the brakes and suspension were also rebuilt in the early part of 2016, and most recently tuned by Dick Lovett in April this year. Finished in arguably the best colour combination for a 365, this is perhaps your last chance to own a front engined manual V12 Ferrari on carburettors for under £100,000.

'Most important was the double overhead cam engine. Like Rolls-Royce, no horsepower figure was quoted, but surely it was at least 320. More important was its massive amou...morent of torque. Taken together with the turbine-like characteristics of the V12 engine, it mattered little which gear one was in or at what speed.' Stanley Nowak on the 356GT4 2+2, 'Ferrari on the Road'. Introduced towards the end of 1972, the 365GT4 2+2 was the biggest and best equipped four-seater Ferrari so far. Flagship of the Maranello range, it reaffirmed Ferrari's determination to compete with the world's finest luxury saloons. Based on the preceding 365GT 2+2, albeit lower, longer and wider, the newcomer was fitted with a four-cam version of the 4.4-litre V12 engine while retaining its predecessor's mechanical underpinnings. A total of only 524 had been completed by the time production ceased in 1976. This wonderful and original right hand drive 2+2 Pininfarina Coupe is an example of the ultimate Ferrari of its day and - being one of only 100 right hand drive cars in existence- it is also incredibly rare. Chassis 19603 was the subject of an engine rebuild in 1999. Having covered less than 5,000 miles since the carburettors and clutch were replaced in 2014, the brakes and suspension were also rebuilt in the early part of 2016, and most recently tuned by Dick Lovett in April this year. Finished in arguably the best colour combination for a 365, this is perhaps your last chance to own a front engined manual V12 Ferrari on carburettors for under £100,000.

1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster

Lot # 122 (Sale Order: 23 of 47)      

On its 1961 Geneva Show debut the E-Type caused a sensation, with all the promise of its looks confirmed by independent road test results that not only recorded a 150mph top speed, but also 0-60mph and 0-l00mph in 6.9 and 16.2 seconds respectively; fast indeed, and the match of any exotic thoroughbred then available, combined with superb road-holding and remarkable docility. One of the greatest post-war sports cars, Jaguar's E-Type made immediate headlines on its launch in March 1961. Here was a sleek and beautiful 150mph car with a competition pedigree that was a direct descendant of the XK120 and competition C and D-Type models that so dominated fifties sports car racing, the E-Type shared its 265bhp 3.8 litre twin-cam straight-six engine with the XK150 'S', mated to a Moss four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios. Beneath the William Lyons/Malcolm Sayer-styled body, available in either closed or roadster form, the steel monocoque chassis sported all-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, mounted inboard at the back. Manufactured on the 24th of August 1962 this is an excellent matching numbers example of arguably the most sought after specification for any E-Type; an early Series 1 3.8 Roadster. Still fitted with its original triple SU carburettors and complimented with the original factory 4- speed manual Moss gearbox, this very early, desirable and usable Series 1 RHD 3.8 litre roadster is offered in outstanding condition and has been part of a private collection where it has been cherished for a number years. It's clear to see that the climate controlled environment where she has lived in has done her proud. Finished in Metallic Silver with full blue leather and corresponding blue carpets, she looks fabulous while boasting matching numbers to the Jaguar Heritage certificate. Having undergone light restoration work in 1994, MoT's dating back to 2006 would indicate that the car has done a mere 7000 miles since. The interior is in excellent condition with the original sport seats, aluminium dash and wood & aluminium steering wheel. The blue soft top is in fabulous condition and comes with matching hood cover. All the chrome work, wire wheels and body lines are as new. This car is in excellent condition in all respects, and rather unsurprisingly is described to 'start every time and drive like a dream'. Looking through the extensive history file and service invoices, its plain to see that the car has been loved and well maintained though-out her life. With the iconic E-Type considered to be an ever appreciating asset, this very early example is not to be missed. : View 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1962-jaguar-e-type-series-1-3-8-roadster-2' for further details.

1961 Ferrari 250GT Series II Cabriolet

Lot # 123 (Sale Order: 24 of 47)      

By 1961, Ferrari was taking road cars very seriously and production was running at a rate of nearly one a day. The 250 GT in both LWB and SWB forms therefore became the first 'production' Ferrari. With the company's policy of developing models 'on the run', it meant that hardly any two cars were identical and improvement were made all the time. At the Geneva Motor Show Ferrari unveiled a series II version of the immortal 250 GT. With wider track front and rear, telescopic shock absorbers replaced the earlier lever shocks and, with the new cylinder heads and larger valves, the classic 'short block' 3-litre V12 engine developed 240bhp. Further chassis revisions were introduced for 1961. Customers had a choice of body style but, by 1961, the majority were opting for Pininfarina. In effect, the 250 GT had become the common ground on which all coachbuilders fought for prominence, and Pininfarina emerged the clear winner. Customers had voted and thereafter Pininfarina became the first choice - and made an incalculable contribution to the Ferrari legend. In his book on Ferrari, the late Hans Tanner wrote of the 250 GT Series II: 'they are very highly regarded today as amongst the most collectable of all Ferrari's road cars.' The car on offer today was purchased by a French collector in Burgundy in 1992. It was immediately decided to restore the car the same standards as the other cars in his collection, and so work commenced. The engine was sent to Vergorini in Italy to be rebuilt with new Pistons, liners, crankshafts and camshafts. The four-speed plus overdrive gearbox was stripped and rebuilt, as was the back axle, and the electrical system was rewired. The braking system and suspension were overhauled and a new ANsa four pot exhaust fitted. All bodywork was stripped and sanded, the chassis checked and the car reassembled with a stunning new midnight blue paintwork and best quality Connolly hide upholstery. Carpets were wool and a new hood was fitted in the finest Alpaca. Finally the Borrani wire wheels rebuilt in Milan. The current vendor purchased the car in May 2000, after the car had covered a mere 1000km from the comprehensive restoration. The car has resided within the vendors collection ever since seeing very little use, light recommissioning is advised before use. With its ample boot space, luxurious interior, long-legged V12 mated to an overdrive transmission, there are few more comfortable and stylish conveniences with which to melt away the miles. Redolent of the dolce vita era, Ferrari's first production convertible was a natural choice for playboys and aristocrats, a silver example serving as David Niven's personal conveyance in the original Pink Panther film and Dominican bon viveur and sometime racing driver Porfirio Rubirosa also choosing one as his personal transport. The chance to join this exclusive club is a rare one; 1783GT is certainly one of the most stylish ways to do so. Bidding requires pre-registration with Coys and will be subject to separate terms and conditions that do not appear in this catalogue. Please contact Coys offices for more details.

1969 Porsche 911T

Lot # 124 (Sale Order: 25 of 47)      

The 911T was added to the Porsche line up in 1968 as the "Touring" form of the 911. The 911T had the 2.0 liter engine, but with only 110 horsepower. The T was the "base" model, costing 10% less that its more powerful brother, the 911S. As of 1969, the 911T got the 2" lengthening in its wheelbase as did the other 911s. It retained its Weber carburetor while the other 911s received mechanical fuel injection. 1970 brought on the first engine displacement increase, to 2.2L. (2,195cc). That upped the output to 125 horsepower. For both '70 and '71, the engine had Zenith carbs, and kept the same compression ratio of 8.6:1. Until 1972, all 911T models had a different transmission than the 911S and 911E. In 1972, the 911s received 2.4Liters (2,341cc) and the 911T output 140 hp at 5,600 rpm. Part of this power came from the addition of mechanical FI, something other 911s had for years. Compression was lowered to 7.5:1. All the 911 models shared the same 915/12 transmission. This is a lovely matching numbers engine and gearbox example, still retaining its original black interior and panels. Its 2.0 litre engine pulls well and is a joy to drive according to the owner. These lovely classic 911 Porsches' are always in high demand and this one is surely be one of the nicest available.
