1988 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL - Formerly the Property of King Hussein and Queen Noor of Jordan

Lot # 326 (Sale Order: 26 of 65)      

"The Mercedes-Benz S-Class: recognised all over the world as the ultimate large saloon for long journeys. Its concept, one of outstanding quality in every aspect, is based on the confidence that demanding owners have in Mercedes-Benz. Superb, proven engineering in a long-distance saloon, consistent through and through. Setting the standards and pointing the way to the future" Mercedes-Benz S-Class BrochureMeaning 'Sonderklasse' or 'Special Class' the W126 model was the second generation Mercedes-Benz to wear the S-Class badge. With the introduction of the new model came technological advancements in safety, including airbags, pre-determined front and rear crumple zones, electronically controlled belt tensioners and the Mercedes safety steering system with a deformable steering column and padded steering wheel and boss. Nine different S-class models were available to choose from, with the entry level 260SE 6-cylinde2.6-litrere engine through to the most powerful 560SE with a 5.6 litre V8 engine capable of 300 bhp. 24 body colours were available along with 24 interior options including fabric, velours and leather.Ordered new and formerly the property of the late King Hussein of Jordan and his wife Her Majesty Queen Noor Al Hussein. His Majesty King Hussein bin Talal is regarded as the father of modern Jordan and will always be remembered as a leader who guided his country through strife and turmoil to become an oasis of peace, stability, and moderation in the Middle East.This particular, right-hand drive, Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL is finished in Pearl Grey with a black leather interior and was retained at their private estate in Ascot for their use on royal duties whilst here in the UK. Fitted as standard the car has heated and electronically controlled front seats, its original Becker Mexico CD 'Autoradio' system, a telephone, and the glovebox conceals a microphone connected to an exterior speaker hidden in the grille. For protection, as one might expect, this car is armoured to 'B4 level' which includes thicker glass all round, strengthened roof and floor and armour plating elsewhere on the car. As a result, the car is no lightweight tipping the scales at around four tons, and back in 1988 would have cost in excess of £200,000.The original service book shows eight stamps, the first of which is a pre-delivery inspection on 18th December 1987 at the Mercedes-Benz factory in Sindelfingen. The majority of the upkeep of the car was then carried out at the Whitestone Capital Limited - the personal garage of His Royal Majesty.The current recorded mileage is 25,990 miles and this fabulous piece of automotive engineering is supplied with a UK V5c, its original book pack containing drivers manual and service book, original Mercedes-Benz S-Class brochures and sundry invoices and MoT certificates. This low mileage 560SEL was constructed to offer the maximum protection to its Royal occupants in a discreet and rapid package and is still perfectly able to fulfill those duties today. There may be a prospective purchaser who feels those qualities would be relevant to their particular lifestyle, and this carefully constructed Mercedes luxury saloon can transport VIPs and executives swiftly and silently with total peace of mind.

1972 Fiat 500L - Formerly the Personal Car of Samantha Cameron

Lot # 327 (Sale Order: 27 of 65)      

The Fiat 500 was produced by Fiat S.p.A (Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino) between 1957 and 1975 and was designed by Dante Giacosa. Despite its diminutive size, the '500' proved to be an enormously practical and popular vehicle throughout Europe and it captured the hearts and minds of the public until production ended in 1975.Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, it was marketed as a cheap and practical town car. Measuring only 3 metres long, and originally powered by a 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term "small car" and it is considered to be one of the first 'city cars'. The 'L' or Lusso penultimate model, like the car offered here today, was produced between 1968 and 1972. It featured a much-modernised interior including a renewed dashboard which brought the Fiat 500 up to date. Greater comfort and style were provided in this new model for a new generation, and the engine benefitted from a capacity upgrade to 499cc.This particular Fiat 500L was registered 'DUE 662K' on 20th August 1971 in Warwickshire and finished in White with a black interior. Eventually, it was purchased by former Prime Minister David Cameron as a surprise birthday present for his wife Samantha. A Witney-based taxi driver by the name of Tim Ashby, collected the Camerons from RAF Fairford on an evening in October 2005 and upon dropping them at their home, spotted the little Fiat 500 tucked away on the driveway looking rather neglected, which prompted him to write a letter to Mr. Cameron asking if the car would be for sale. Sure enough, a letter back from the former Conservative leader stated that he would sell the car for £1,000 and to contact his secretary.By the middle of 2010, when the car had covered only 11,500 miles, some refurbishment work was required to 'DUE 662K'. The engine was removed, cleaned and new gaskets fitted. The carburettor was rebuilt along with new hoses throughout, new engine / gearbox mounts, new fuel pump, and an electronic ignition system fitted. The braking system had a full overhaul with a new master cylinder, new wheel cylinders, brake shoes and all new pipework. A host of other jobs were taken care of at the same time and are fully documented in the history file. There are also numerous invoices from parts suppliers accompanying the car.This sparkling Fiat 500L is supplied with its original handbook and a spare set of keys. In great condition and having covered less than 15,000 miles, this sweet little Fiat offers perfect classic car ownership, will turn heads wherever it goes, and is a great conversation piece having been owned by our Prime Minister and his First Lady.

1970 Wood & Pickett Mini Cooper S Mk II - John Hammell

Lot # 328 (Sale Order: 28 of 65)      

Synonymous with the Mini badge, Wood and Pickett have been converting, tuning and supplying parts for Minis since the 1960s. Proprietors and founders, Bill Wood and Les Pickett mastered their craft at Hooper and Co in London before joining forces and setting up their own company in 1947. Spotting a gap in the market, they were determined to offer Mini conversions better than that of leading rival Radford and the 'Margrave' Mini was their first offering, featuring a distinctive leather and walnut fascia panel, leather or Dralon seating and front and rear nudge bars, to which customers were invited to add from a long list of individually-priced options. Bill and Les retired in the early 1980s but the business still remains strong under the stewardship of Mike Standring and currently operates from its home in Leatherhead, Surrey. from where it is still able to supply a full list of parts for the early WandP Minis.This particular right-hand drive Morris Mini Cooper 'S' Mk II was supplied new to Stewart and Ardern Limited of Acton, West London on 9th December 1969, finished in El Paso Beige with a Snowberry White roof. At that time, Stewart and Ardern were the largest distributors of Morris vehicles in the UK and were at the fore of ensuring the success of the Morris brand in the intervening years. This Cooper S was then sent to Wood and Pickett where it was to be converted into the Margrave specification and finished in Pacific Blue. Modifications included; Aston Martin DB6-style seats, Aston Martin electric window switches, Radiomobile 8-track radio, a Benelite front grille, Jaguar dials, Mini-van doors with quarter-lights and unique front wings with a crease at the top, creating a very special look. It was then registered 'YYU 292H' on 11th September 1970 and sold to its first owner.Wood and Pickett Minis of the 60's and 70's were the preferred mode of transport for many musicians, actors, and pop stars, and this Cooper S has its own Rock 'N Roll story.....The third owner of the car in 1973 was a Mr. John Hammel, personal assistant and guitar technician to Sir Paul McCartney. Despite his love for the car, John sold the little Mini to Denny Laine of 1960's group, The Moody Blues, and at that time a member of Wings. Mr. Laine had bought it for his wife, but after only 8 months, John Hammel asked Denny Laine if he could buy it back and a deal was struck. He kept the car on this occasion car until 1997 when he sold it to a Mr. Andrew Stewart, but did stipulate to the new owner that if the car were ever to become available again, to please get in touch. A few years after that, Mr. Stewart made that call, and again, John bought back 'YYU 292H'!In the early 2000s and now onto his third 'chapter' with the car, he had it fully restored by Woods Restoration Services at Brand Hatch. The car was taken back to bare metal and given a coat of its original Wood and Pickett colour Pacific Blue. The wings had to be replaced and repairs had to be made on the sills, floors, and rear valance. Fortunately, the interior had stood the test of time and a simple re-Connolising was enough to bring it up to top spec.In 2009, this Cooper S won 'Car of the Show' at that year's London to Brighton Mini run with John Hammel proudly at the wheel. The car was sold in 2012 to a Mr. Ascione, ending John's 39-year love affair with this special car, before our vendor took the reins in 2014.Supplied with a superb history file, and now showing a little more than 72,000 miles from new, this is thought to be the only Cooper S Mk II to have received the Wood and Pickett magic. John Hammel's skill with guitars was legendary and in addition to Sir Paul, he helped a large number of musicians from different bands deal with technical issues with their instruments. The music and club scene at that time was pretty tight and we would imagine that he would have communicated his enthusiasm for his WandP to some of his other clients and even given them a lift in his pride and joy. John Lennon became a fan as did Ringo Starr, Mick Jagger, Laurence Harvey and George Best and who's to say if a ride in YYU 292H didn't influence their decisions. One household name regularly offered a ride was Steve Marriot of the Small Faces and it was he who once described it as a "100 mph pair of shades." Enough said. Seriously cool.

1987 Bristol Brigand - Ex-Will Young

Lot # 329 (Sale Order: 29 of 65)      

In 1961 Bristol Cars launched the 407, beginning the long-established British company's partnership with American V8 engines, which in this case came from Chrysler. Bearing a close resemblance to its predecessor, the 406, the new car had a powerful 5.1-litre V8 installed and a number of chassis and styling revisions re-establishing Bristol as a builder of true high-performance motor cars.After the 407, the marriage of the sleek and stylish Gentleman's Express and the less than sophisticated big V8 continued through a further five iterations of the 400 Series until the arrival of the 603 in 1976. The original 603 was offered with a choice of a 5.2-litre V8 engine (603E), and a larger 5.9-litre unit (603S). The 603 Series II arrived in their Kensington Showroom with the 5.9-litre engine becoming standard across all models and a revision of the headlamp cluster giving the car a much more modern look.Introduced in 1982, the 603 Series III acknowledged Bristol's aeronautical past by using the names of famous aircraft, the 'Britannia' and the 'Brigand', for the new model. Hand built in aluminium in traditional coachbuilding fashion, the Brigand utilised a Rotomaster Turbocharger unit to increase power and give the car a top speed of a 150mph. A bulge in the bonnet was necessary to squeeze the turbocharger in and the car had alloy wheels fitted as standard. At around £50,000, the Brigand attempted to justify its rarefied price tag by offering superbly finished, understated coachwork, a sumptuous 'Gentleman's Club' interior with acres of Leather and Walnut, and that very British quality, exclusivity.This particular Bristol Brigand was supplied new on 26th April 1988, registered E693 FLD, to its first owner, a Mr. D.Holland in London and was originally finished in White with a black leather interior. Mr. Holland evidently enjoyed driving his new Bristol, as his 1,000-mile service was completed only two weeks later. Invoices in the file show annual services during his care, until October 1991 when Bristol Cars re-purchased the car, by which time it had covered 29,301 miles. The car remained at Kensington High Street until early 1993 when it was sold to its second owner, a Mr. D.Starkey.The comprehensive service records in the history file from Bristol Cars show a string of further owners and a body colour change to Deep Burgundy before this Brigand was purchased in August 2009 by none other than 'Leave Right Now' singer and Pop Idol winner, Will Young. Upon his proprietorship, Mr. Young had Bristol cars complete a full respray in Grey and a re-trim of the interior in Oxblood hide, along with a host of other jobs on the car, in exchange for the not inconsiderable sum of £26,000. A national newspaper article from 2010 shows Will Young, looking rather dapper, and standing proudly by his freshly completed Bristol Brigand, citing his grandfather as his inspiration for his love of classic cars and Bristols in particular.However, in October 2010, two Bristol mechanics were sent to Mr. Young's Holland Park address to recover the Brigand and investigate the lack of oil pressure upon start up. Back in the Brentford workshop and after doing a compression check and removing the cylinder heads, it transpired that the pistons had picked up in the cylinder bores and caused significant damage to the engine due to lack of oil. The engine and gearbox were both removed and a new 5.9 litre V8 unit sourced from the factory, whilst the gearbox was rebuilt before being mated to the new power unit and installed back into the car. The new engine was tested and run-in by the team at Bristol before returning the car to Mr. Young, who was now some £7,000 lighter!A mutual friend, of both Will Young and our vendor, facilitated the sale of the car in January 2012, and this Brigand was then sent to Bristol specialists, Brabazon Motors, where it was to have lots of remedial work done at a cost of almost £3,000. Always in search of perfection, our fastidious vendor decided to have the car fully resprayed once again, entrusting the respected Aston Martin and classic car specialist 'Spray-Tec Restorations' to carry out the work. All the brightwork, glass, mouldings and interior were removed and the car was chemically stripped to bare metal. Corroded aluminium was cut out and replaced where necessary, and the bodyshell was prepared to receive paint. When ready, etched primer and high-build primers were applied and flatted, before the car was finished in Aston Martin Black Pearl. Re-assembled and given a final polish, the bill from the celebrated restorers was just shy of £28,000, indicative of the standard of finish achieved. Documented photographically from Spray-Tec, a CD accompanies the history file.Supplied with a comprehensive history file including a UK V5c, this car is thought to be one of 15 or so surviving Bristol Brigands and, in this condition, with celebrity provenance, you will struggle to find a better one.

1973 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible

Lot # 330 (Sale Order: 30 of 65)      

The Corniche, two-door convertible version of the Silver Shadow, has been, without doubt, the most successful convertible ever produced by Rolls-Royce. First introduced in 1966 as the Silver Shadow Mulliner Park Ward two door drophead coupé, it became apparent by popular demand that this version deserved to have its own model name so, in March 1966, the Corniche was born. The car used a silky smooth 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce V8 engine, mated to a three-speed automatic transmission and featured independent suspension with coil springs and hydraulic self-levelling. During its production run, a total of only 1,306 would glide smoothly out of the doors of Mulliner Park Ward.Rarely do we offer a motor car that has such a comprehensive history file. Every detail of this car's life appears to be in there including the Confirmation of Order letter dated 4th November 1971 from official Rolls-Royce dealer J.D Barclay in Banbury to the first owner Mr. Sylvester, a gentleman farmer from Hampshire. Mr. Sylvester kept meticulous records and they include the original purchase receipt for the car dated 19th December 1972 for the sum of £14,541.85, which at the time was not insignificant bearing in mind a brand new E-Type Jaguar was around £3,000. In addition to confirming the car's original order specification, 'Nugget Gold, with black vinyl hood and black Anela leather', the receipt also details a full tank of petrol (100 litres) for the grand total of £8.50! The history file also includes two unused "Motor Fuel ration books" for use during the 1973 Oil crisis.First registered on the 1st January 1973, Mr. Sylvester had the car regularly serviced regardless of his low usage and fastidiously kept every service receipt and invoice. The history file reads like a Who's Who of Rolls-Royce main dealers including J.D. Barclay, Rolls-Royce at Crewe, Phantom Motor Cars, Frank Dale and Sons, and Hanwells of London. Virtually every MOT and SORN notice has been carefully kept. Mr. Sylvester relinquished his thirty-year custodianship of the car on the 17th October 2013 but it remained in the family and was passed to his grandson Mr. Gwydir of Kensington. The car received attention at a number of highly regarded Rolls-Royce specialists during his ownership and when the time came to part with the Corniche, he entrusted Hanwells with the task and they immediately made contact with our distinguished vendor in April this year. Despite the car being generally in superb condition, our vendor asked Hanwells to commission all the woodwork to be repolished and, when it was completed to his satisfaction, he took delivery.Presented to auction with an MOT until March 2017 and an odometer reading of just under 26,000 miles, this distinctive Corniche is effectively a 'one family' car and has patently lived a cossetted life.

1978 Maserati Merak SS

Lot # 331 (Sale Order: 31 of 65)      

By the beginning of the Seventies any serious supercar manufacturer needed a mid-engine design and Maserati was no exception, so the creative talents of Giorgetto Giugiaro were called upon. The result was the Bora and the Merak which virtually shared the same underpinnings and body design. By 1975 Maserati had shrugged off the restraints of ownership by Citroen and were revitalised with De Tomaso as a partner. Fortunately for the Merak this would see an increase in power from the 3.0 litre Maserati unit and further weight saving - the Merak SS was the ultimate evolution. The Merak was now fulfilling its design brief to provide an alternative to the Lamborghini Urraco and the Ferrari 308/GT4. Like the Bora, the Merak was comfortable and refined and really only differed by engine size and the treatment to the engine cover. The 2+2 design did offer occasional seating in the rear. When production ceased nearly a thousand Merak SS had been delivered.Offered here is a 1978 Maserati Merak SS, the lighter and more powerful variant, in Rosso Fuoco Red with a velvet blue and black interior. This car is thought to have been delivered new to Japan, from where our vendor purchased the car. Bodily, although the paint has faded, the panels themselves are remarkably rust free, and would provide a good basis for a full repaint. The engine bay is dusty and it is unclear when the car last ran under its own steam, so we would recommend an engine rebuild as a matter of course. Open the door to the interior and the dashboard and centre console are both in good condition, whilst the seats are worn in parts. Both door cards still retain the protective plastic coating, which leads us to believe that the 15,298 km shown on the odometer could well be genuine, although this cannot be warranted.Supplied with a Maserati Certificate and a Nova reference number, this car has had all UK import duties paid, but will need an MoT before applying for a UK V5c.In summary this Merak SS is a great candidate for a full restoration and once finished you will be sure to attract a lot of attention in this pleasingly styled Italian sportscar.

1975 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe

Lot # 333 (Sale Order: 33 of 65)      

The Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe was introduced in 1974 on the new G-Series chassis that was built to appease ever stricter US regulations for crash worthiness. The floor pans were strengthened, lighting was improved and larger bumpers incorporated. With an impressive 210 bhp, 2,687 cc Type 911/83 air-cooled, horizontally opposed, six-cylinder engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection, 0-60 was achieved in just over 5 seconds and gearing was good for 150mph through a 5-speed manual transmission. The suspension was fully independent with torsion bars, McPherson struts and anti-roll bars. The total weight was just over 1,075 kilograms, which made the Euro-spec 2.7 MFI a very fast car in its day. In fact, it was the fastest production 911 until the late 1980s. In total, 1,647 Euro-spec MFI Carrera coupes were built during this three-year run, along with 631 Targas, with total production figures not vastly outnumbering that of the original 1973 Carrera RS.There are currently 48 right-hand drive cars listed with the Carrera 2.7 MFI Registry. However, this sunroof-equipped model is believed to be 1 of just 21 Coupé examples produced for the UK market. A matching numbers Carrera MFI Coupé, it was sold new to its first, and only previous, owner on 13th November 1975 by Swinford Motors of Stourbridge. It has covered a total mileage of 55,500 miles from new and is presented in stunning order following a ground-up restoration carried out by respected marque specialists ‘RS 911' in Wales.Silverstone Auctions had the pleasure of selling chassis number 9115600513 for its first owner in May 2015 and are delighted to re-offer this unique Porsche, having undergone quite the transformation. When we first inspected the vehicle, the body shell had never been welded, the car had never been restored or seen paint and the beautifully thin Ice Green special order finish had faded almost down to bare metal. The interior was complete and untouched from new. Journalists, restorers and enthusiasts all agreed that it was one of the most original examples ever seen on the open market.Work began in earnest in June 2015 following the auction. The car was stripped of all components and the engine and gearbox sent to renowned Porsche engine builders 'Tech 9 Motorsport' in Liverpool. ‘RS 911' set about the bodywork and every effort was made to preserve as much of the original car as possible. Other than two new front wings and basic perishable items, the rest of the car was restored using existing components that were repaired or renovated. The sills and floor pans have never been touched.The fully rebuilt engine and gearbox were reunited with the car at Tech 9 and it was fully balanced and tuned. The suspension, brakes, differential and electrics were all rebuilt by ‘RS 911' and the original interior simply cleaned up, re-stitched and restored. The only non-original item in the cabin today is the headlining, which was too damaged to repair. The results of this restoration must be seen to be fully appreciated. The paintwork retains a superb shine and the shut lines are straight and true. The engine sounds superb and this 911 can now be returned to the road to relive its former glory. ‘RS 911' have done a fantastic job and it is the intention of the owner to re-unite the car with its first owner prior to the sale and take him for a drive.The history file for this Porsche is a joy to behold. From 1975 until 2008 the car was maintained exclusively by respected Porsche specialist Chris Best from 'Two-Plus-Two'. There are 6 service stamps in the original service book and many invoices for work carried out over the years. Complete with original tools, radio, windscreen transfers, wallet, service manuals and ownership paraphernalia, there are even letters between the current owner and the supplying dealer in 1975. A large number of bills and photographs document the complete restoration process.We welcome pre-sale inspections on this fascinating piece of UK Porsche history. A 911 that ticks all the boxes of rarity, provenance, a superb history file and a world-class restoration by leading Porsche specialists.More pictures to follow shortly...

1984 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit

Lot # 337 (Sale Order: 37 of 65)      

Prior to his departure in 1980, Rolls-Royce's charismatic Chairman, Sir David Plastow had been responsible for a series of models, amongst which was the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit. His firm hand 'on the tiller' combined with the talented pen of Fritz Feller at their in-house styling centre, resulted in the superbly balanced and archetypical Silver Spirit. Unveiled in October 1980 as a replacement for the Silver Shadow, the new car gave the impression of being stretched compared to the dimensions of the previous generation, however, direct comparison showed only small differences. The new models had grown slightly in length and width and height had been cut a little, although the styling was more modern than that of its predecessor. The interior was dominated by the expected combination of fine wood and sumptuous leather, and to Sir David's great pleasure was unmistakeably, a proper Rolls-Royce.This exquisite Silver Spirit was originally supplied by Dutton-Forshaw Rolls-Royce in Preston and, according to its delivery docket, was handed over to its, presumably delighted, first owner on the 18th of September 1984, finished in a striking Balmoral Green Metallic with green piped Champagne Leather and Forest Green carpets.In addition to its Balmoral Green paint (code 9510455) and champagne leather (VM3099), other options from the list included an Everflex roof, Top Roll and Underdash in contrasting hide, Rear Parcel shelf in hide, RR-motifs to the rear quarters and White-Wall Avon tyres.This dignified motor car has been gently used in the hands of its three owners from new, but well looked after' and the Rolls-Royce service book is stamped with a mixture of Rolls-Royce and Bentley dealer service history. Services have been recorded at 3,077 miles, 3,521 miles and 3,867miles all at Mann Egerton Rolls- Royce Leicester, and finally at 6324 miles at Bentley Leicester. The last service in June this year also included a new battery and four original specification Avon White-Wall tyres. The current mileage is 6,690. As you would expect of a Rolls-Royce at this mileage, the car looks in superb condition throughout, with the original twin gold factory fine lines still intact and unmarked bright work, whilst the still fluffy sheepskin rugs, woodwork, carpets and plump Connolly hide, are all as you would hope for and the only slight evidence of use is minor patination on the driver's seat.With the car are the original invoice from Dutton Forshaw Preston for £50,529.85, the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club factory chassis file, the original handbooks, service books, an unopened sachet of the original Hirschmann Ariel cleaner, the UK V5 and a MOT valid until May 2017 issued with no advisories.Rolls-Royce of this era are all too often a bit 'down at heel' having covered a lot of miles and no one would argue that they are cheap to maintain, however, this very special low mileage example appears very hard to fault. Come and have a look yourself.Looking fabulous, in this condition, with this history it's hard to imagine finding better value for money on four wheels.

1956 Bentley S1 Continental Park Ward Two-Door Sports Saloon

Lot # 340 (Sale Order: 40 of 65)      

The Continental name evokes high-speed travel over long distances in the lap of luxury. Fittingly, that is exactly the experience that Bentley's Continental models provided to the favoured few during the 1950s.The S1 Continental of 1955 featured the last of Bentley's long-lived six-cylinder engine, which, being a Rolls-Royce design was smooth and silent but also appropriately powerful. An exceptionally rigid welded box section chassis was mounted on a new front suspension that had a semi-trailing wishbone and repositioned rear springs, which improved handling and softened the ride.Numerous catalogued semi-custom and custom body styles were used to dress the S1 Continental, usually in lightweight all-aluminum, as would be expected of a performance model.The car offered here is one of the rarest iterations; it is one of a believed 66 built by Park Ward of London to this striking coupe design. This design, which was originally created for the 1957 Paris show, was distinguished by its crisp, airy wraparound rear window, large rear quarter windows and narrow C-pillars. It is one of the most striking closed bodies fitted to the S1 Continental.This 1956 Bentley S1 Continental is an automatic fitted with the factory option of power steering from new. Built by Park Ward bodies, a highly respected individual coach maker to Bentley motors, as a 2 door saloon, and one of just 66 right hand drive examples ever built.Finished in a lovely Pewter green metallic with contrasting dark green leather upholstery this rare car has had a busy but cherished life from new. A letter from Rolls-Royce motor company in the comprehensive history file confirms that in 1964, and at a mileage of 71,000, both the engine and gearbox were replaced for brand new units of the correct and original type when first built.The same file confirms that the car was sold to the USA in 1968 and was exported to Holyoke, Massachusetts - where it was to remain until 1988. At this point it was returned to the UK and subjected to a lavish and very comprehensive restoration by Paddon Brothers of London. This full and complete restoration included the fitting of air conditionning as well as a modern stereo system. They also reprofiled the rear wings at this time which gives the car a unique and very smart appearance.Since that time the car has been a part of several significant private collections, including noted Bentley collector Terry Lister, and today is ready to be enjoyed once more. It now has the correct size of whitewall radial tyres recently fitted and the overall car exudes quality and a lovely mature patina. It is now both highly collectable, very rare and priced to sell.

1968 Porsche 912

Lot # 344 (Sale Order: 44 of 65)      

The question of how to tempt new customers into Porsche ownership has always been problematic. On the one hand, you're trying to uphold the reputation of the company as a purveyor of high-quality, high-performance sports cars while on the other, you're anxious not to alienate those potential customers whose budget won't stretch to a new 911.In 1964, Porsche had just such a problem with the sales of their new 911 proving a touch disappointing and continuing demand for the 356, which was scheduled to be phased out, necessitating that the production lines kept rolling. The solution seemed to be financial, and the decision was made to replace the 356 with a four-cylinder, more appropriately priced 911 and, as a result, the 912 (initially 902) was conceived. First available to European customers by June 1965 (initially with 1582 cc and 90bhp), the 912 soon became a market leader, particularly in the USA. In the UK, it was some 30% cheaper at £2,466 compared to the £3,488 price tag of the 911 and went on to outsell its six-cylinder sibling by no less than 188% in 1966. This well presented Gloss Black, 1968 Porsche 912 is believed to have been delivered new from Germany to Sacramento in August of '68, and was imported into the UK from the States earlier this year. The exterior of this Porsche presents well as does the interior, and the seats, fitted with the optional headrests, appear in good shape apart from a small split in a seam on the driver's side. The period AM/FM Blaupunkt radio is present. The engine bay presents impressively and looks like it has benefitted from some recent attention. Sitting on its steel wheels, this car looks unmolested and absolutely straightforward and, although we have no history, the whole car feels like it has been well cared for in the past.This charming Porsche starts up easily with no smoke and idles and revs nicely. Reading 89.757 miles this car is presented to auction with a MOT valid until October 2017, no history file and on a NOVA.A well set up 912 is a delight to drive and this, most attractively guided example, must be of consideration.

1987 Ferrari Testarossa

Lot # 346 (Sale Order: 46 of 65)      

When Ferrari introduced the Testarossa in Paris in 1984, it was regarded by many as possibly the best car they had ever built but, whilst the design was spectacular, it was not considered to be as sensually beautiful as some of the gorgeous GT Ferraris of the past. As a complete departure, Pininfarina had designed a modern, aerodynamic and efficient body shape, immediately recognisable by its very distinctive side 'strakes' unlike anything else seen in the post-war period. The name 'Testarossa', literally Redhead, became synonymous with Ferrari sports racing cars in the 50s and 60s and was resurrected at the launch of this new model at the Porte de Versailles in 1984.Housing a 4.9-litre V12 engine producing 390bhp, the car was capable of a respectable 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 196mph. Produced between 1984 and 1991, some 7,177 Testarossas were made in total. Once again, time showed Pininfarina's innovative design to be durable, and throughout the eighties, the distinctive 'strakes' were echoed in other design disciplines from cars to kettles.However, although the design may have seemed to be 'of the moment', the Testarossa proved itself to be a well-built car, and despite its 'Eiger-rivaling' list price, turned out to be Ferrari's most successful model ever.Today it's a design icon, symbolic of eighties culture, and despite a period in the "boondocks", its popularity is returning rapidly. It's not a surprise really since the Testarossa offers a rare package of serious performance, practicality, and reasonable comfort and, although a little heavy at low speeds, its confidence-inspiring handling at high speed becomes almost addictive.First registered on the 6th March 1987, this left-hand drive, European market, Testarossa is finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero interior and contrasting Red carpets. It was delivered new to the Italian market through Milan dealer 'CREPALDI' and its first owner is recorded as GEFINA S.p.A.. The early service history indicates that its first service was at CREPALDI on 28/4/87 and the next entry was considerably later, on 28/7/98 at GARAGE ZENITH in Switzerland with mileage unrecorded. A later owner presumably used the car between Monaco and Kent, as there is history of a cambelt change and annual service at Kent High Performance Cars on 18/1/03 (30,352km) and further services in Kent (27/04/03- 35,807km) and CAVALLARI- Monaco (25/06/04 - 37,961km).The car was imported from the South of France in early 2013 and went straight to Foskers Engineering for a replacement cambelt and annual service resulting in a bill for £2,800. A further £1, 500 was spent at Autoclass MK on 14/08/14 attending to some brake issues and repainting the stone chipped front spoiler.Our vendor acquired this Testarossa in 2015 to add to his collection, however, a change of circumstances now mean it is being offered for sale. In order to present the car in an absolutely sale-ready condition, our vendor left it with Keys Motorsport at Silverstone in early April, and they have carried out a further cambelt change at 51,000km( just 200km driven since), with some additional work (invoice for £4,700.00 in the file). The wheels have been stripped and repainted and the Ferrari was then MoT'd, fully valeted, and is now ready for inspection.This immaculate Testarossa is accompanied by its cherished plate, D12 FER, and a box file containing a fairly comprehensive history, import documents, service records, invoices, the Ferrari tan leather book wallet, an original brochure(in German), injection manual, wiring diagrams, a parts list and various related publications. All in all - a super package.

1998 Porsche 911 (993) Turbo X50

Lot # 350 (Sale Order: 50 of 65)      

The 993 Turbo, introduced in mid-1995, retained a tight hold on the torch of the most powerful 911 variant, whilst continuing the general developments and improvements to the breed as a whole. Amongst the new features on the 993 Turbo was an electronically controlled, viscous coupling all-wheel drive system, something Porsche had not offered on a turbocharged model since the 959 and a system that greatly improved the car's day to day usability. Under the engine lid, now topped with a sculpted spoiler tail with downturned edges, lived the 3.6-litre, flat-six fed by twin K16 turbos. Combined with bigger brakes, fatter tires, a wide body and lower stance, the 993 Turbo was one of the fastest cars on the planet. With all four wheels helping to evenly distribute great handfuls of power, 0-60mph was dispatched in a staggering 3.7 seconds, 100mph whistled by in 5.7 seconds, and the linear forward thrust continued until the speedometer needle had said goodbye to 180mph and you were on conversational terms with the horizon.A letter from Porsche confirms that this 993 turbo was originally manufactured in July 1997 to 'Thai Specification' (C25) in right-hand drive. However, there is also correspondence between Autofarm and the German factory which establishes that the car was first registered on the 7th May 1998 by the Porsche Tourist Delivery Department with a factory specification code of C25 (Thailand). An independent importer immediately purchased the vehicle and brought it to the UK where it was registered on the 14th May 1998 – this car never actually left the EU. The Porsche factory also confirms that the C25 specification is exactly the same as a UK spec, except for the stickers under the bonnet, and they even go on to mention that the very long list of Porsche exclusive options factory fitted to this particular car are rarely seen on UK cars.When initially ordered, the car's first owner decided to specify the desirable 'X50 Power Option, further enhancing this already quick car, with 430 'Pferde' now offering their services. Along with the X50 upgrade the first owner also opted for the Turbo ‘S’ interior and the letter from Porsche confirms the exact full specification. Along with that letter, a full service history is also present with a completely stamped service book up to 2014 when a new book was then needed, along with a large number of past invoices and MOTs. The service book shows stamps from Porsche specialists Autofarm and JZM along with Main Porsche Centres throughout its life. Finished in Artic Silver with a Chestnut full leather interior, this six-speed manual also enjoys an automatic slip differential, 18” techno alloy wheels, sports seats with electric height adjustment, carbon fibre trim and instrument surround, and Porsche fitted rear park assist. Again, the correspondence from Porsche confirms the car's exact specification. Now showing 64,500 miles and superbly presented, this very well equipped, X50 Pack, 993 Turbo is a wonderful example of the last of the classic, air-cooled 911s.
