It won the World Rallye Championship in 1972 when it was replaced by the incredible Stratos.

During this time it was of course updated many times and it came in three basic versions from the start. The Berlina or Saloon, the Coupe and the Sport. The Coupe is the car we have in the auction today and the Sport was the Zagato version of the Coupe.The early cars held the designation 1,3 or 1,6 whereas the later cars such as this one were known as the 1300 or 1600. The competition version, sold to the public were called HF and there were also HF rallys which were even more competition orientated.On offer with us here today is a wonderful example of the 3rd series that has a mere 22,000km recorded on its odometer which is reflective of its overall condition.

Lot # 103 (Sale Order: 3 of 88)

In 1931 the 12/50 had been joined by an even sportier partner – the 12/60hp. Introduced in 1931, the 12/60 came with a raised compression ratio and twin carburettors, modifications that raised maximum power to 56bhp. A sports saloon, four-seater sports and two-seater sports were offered, the latter clothed in graceful …beetleback coachwork. Testing a 12/60 …beetleback in 1931, Motor Sport found the car could almost touch 80mph, yet was capable of returning 30mpg even when driven hard. Today, Alviss 12/50 and 12/60 are among the most highly sought after sports cars of their day, with an enthusiastic following worldwide.This 12/60 …beetleback was dispatched from the factory on 19 November 1931 to Skurrays of Swindon, first registered WV 310 and believed by the current vendor to be used as either a dealer demonstrator or company car for a few months, before being sold in 1932 to Leslie Alan LansdowneLeslie Alan Lansdowne (LAL) a renowned Aeronautical Engineer who worked on the famous R100 airship and later helicopters.

1996 Ferrari 355 Spider

1996 Ferrari 355 Spider

Lot # 104 (Sale Order: 4 of 88)

…Complex, sophisticated, and very fast, it is the quantum leap that has enabled the Ferrari V8 to run in proud parallel with the 456GT and 550 Maranello, enthused Car magazines review of the F355. First presented to the motoring press in May 1994, the F355 effectively re-forged the reputation of Ferraris V8 which, 328 and 348 notwithstanding, had suffered since the introduction of the Mondial …world car. The latter, with its four seats, well-appointed interior, and – relatively – soft ride, was considered far too sensible to be a …proper Ferrari; the F355 however, was cast in the mould of that great drivers car, the Dino 246GT. Just how great an advance it was may be gauged from the fact that the F355s best time around Ferraris Fiorano test track was three seconds quicker than the formidable 512TRs.Despite its prodigious performance the F355 was no mere …racer on the road, but a thoroughly modern automobile employing state-of-the-art technology, in the form of computer-controlled variable damping, to reconcile the differing requirements of ultimate roadholding and acceptable comfort. A light-action clutch, proportional power-assisted steering, and drivers air bag were other features calculated to make the car reassuringly user-friendly. The heart of the F355 though, was its phenomenal 3.5-litre V8 engine. Equipped with four overhead camshafts and five valves per cylinder – a layout borrowed from Ferraris Formula 1 engine – this remarkable unit produced a claimed 370bhp at 8,250rpm, with 268lb/ft of torque available from 5,000 to 6,500rpm. A six-speed gearbox, mounted transversely behind the longitudinally disposed engine, ensured a sufficiency of ratios to keep the motor on the boil whatever the situation.This left-hand drive F355 Spyder is finished in Argento Nurburgring silver with Nero leather, carpets and hood. With only 2 previous owners from new, a mere 38,000 miles recorded and a total service history with stamped original service book including a recent Cam belt service and M.O.T earlier this year, the car is supplied with extras including , Bluetooth stereo with dab radio and hands free, sports exhaust, air conditioning, electric seats, electric hood, power steering, original tool kit, and a desirable leather hood cover . Sounding suitably throaty this classic 355 offered in arguably the best colour combination, with its desirable manual gearbox makes this car an instant classic that represents very fair value.View 1996 Ferrari 355 Spider on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1996-ferrari-355-spider' for further details.

1976 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0

1976 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0

Lot # 105 (Sale Order: 5 of 88)

Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built before F.I.A approval for international racing was granted, led to the creation of …Project 930 – the legendary Porsche 911 Turbo. Production began in April 1975: the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0 litre RSR engine, which in road trim delivered 260bhp and a top speed of 155mph. As impressive as this was, there was more to the Turbo than just top speed. It was also the best equipped 911 produced until that point, amazingly flexible – hence there being only a four speed gearbox – as well as being formidably fast. Indeed, standstill to 100mph was achieved in a mere 14 seconds.Borrowing the flared wheel arches and …tea tray rear spoiler from the Carrera model, the Turbo had aggressive looks to match the performance. It also incorporated the most luxurious interior yet seen in a 911, with leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows.Out of the only 644 Porsche Turbos produced in 1976 for the European market, #00060 is matching numbers, one of the first 200 and as such is very special. The 911 Turbo was the basis for the 934 group 4 car, its gearbox was almost identical to the 934, and the one we are pleased to offer here is one of these early cars. Delivered new to Porsche D’_sseldorf on 01st October 1976 (as shown in the cars Porsche certificate), #00060 was equipped with a Blaupunkt Bamberg radio, air conditioning (M559) and electric sunroof (M650). A German Classic Data expert evidence from 30.06.2016, is available in the cars file.This 930 has been restored completely several years ago and its engine has been rebuilt during this restoration. These affectionately named Ur -Turbos are in high demand nowadays and prices have risen considerably in recent years. The expert evidence available shows this Porsche with a value of äŒ240.000.Recently #00060s interior was restored/renewed and its engine management was repaired as necessary. The car received a new petrol tank, new fuel lines, brakes, wheels, tyres, shock absorbers and a new exhaust system. To make it ready for immediate use, all lubricants were changed.Offered here at a very sensible reserve this Porsche Turbo is certainly not to be missed by any collector or enthusiast.

1997 Bentley Brooklands

1997 Bentley Brooklands

Lot # 106 (Sale Order: 6 of 88)

The Bentley Brooklands was introduced in 1992 as a replacement for the Bentley Mulsanne and Bentley Eight models. It was intended as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R featuring the same styling, and underpinnings of the Rolls-Royce 6.75 litre, V8 engine but without the more powerful models turbocharger.The Brooklands continued Bentleys design theme which was also used on contemporary Rolls-Royce vehicles throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. The exterior design featured the classic Bentley grill as well as dual headlights with wrap-around parking lights. As with many Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles, the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot lid and chrome B-pillars. The interior remained relatively unchanged from previous Bentley models but with a more curvaceous design element surrounding the leather-wrapped centre console. In autumn of 1996 Brooklands received an update in a form of light-pressure turbo, boosting power output to 300 bhp.Finished in Wildberry Metallic with a contrasting Parchment Leather interior, this lovely late 1997 model Brooklands has completed a mere 27,000 miles from new, supported by a file of invoices and handbooks. Offered with a UK V5 document, 3 sets of keys, and tools, this is an excellent example of a class leading executive car of the 1990s.View 1997 Bentley Brooklands on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1997-bentley-brooklands' for further details.

1989 Ferrari Testatossa

1989 Ferrari Testatossa

Lot # 107 (Sale Order: 7 of 88)

Ferraris flagship model of the 1980s, the Testarossa, revived a famous name from the Italian manufacturers past when it arrived in 1984. A car of abnormal design and performance, the new Testarossa was born to stupefy, as was clear from the day of its unveiling: instead of one of the traditional motor shows, Ferrari chose the stage of the famous Paris Lido nightclub for the new models launch. A …next generation Berlinetta Boxer, the Testarossa retained its predecessors amidships-mounted, 5.0-liter, flat-12 cylinder engine, which now boasted a maximum power output raised to 390bhp at 6,300rpm, courtesy of four-valve cylinder heads. Despite the power increase, smoothness and drivability were enhanced, the car possessing excellent top gear flexibility allowing for a maximum speed in excess of 180mph. Rivaling Lamborghinis Countach for presence, the Pininfarina-designed Testarossa succeeded brilliantly. Its side gill slats, which fed air to its side-mounted radiators, instantly became one of the modern eras most recognizable styling devices. A larger car than the 512BB – the increase in width being necessary to accommodate wider tires – the Testarossa managed the trick of combining high downforce with a low co-efficient of drag, its body design being notable for the absence of extraneous spoilers and other devices. Luxury touches in the well-equipped cabin included air conditioning, electrically adjustable seats, tilting steering wheel and plentiful leather. Detail improvements were made regularly throughout the Testarossas seven-year production run, one of the first being the adoption of dual door mirrors. One of the most recognizable and iconic models from the Italian company, the Testarossa would grace many young car enthusiasts bedroom walls in poster form during the late 1980s.Finished at the Maranello Ferrari works in October of 1989, the penultimate but one year of Testarossa production, this low-mileage example is finished in a classic Ferrari Rosso red, with a complementary black interior.Today, with just over 12,000 miles on the odometer, this example of Ferraris iconic supercar is in very good order. The interior shows extremely well, with only minor signs of use. The console and dash areas are clean.The exterior paint is detailed, and the black trim and rubber parts show very well. The compartments (engine and front trunk) are clean and original and the classic five-spoke star alloy wheels present beautifully. A better-kept, low mileage example will be hard to find anywhere; this surely represents the best way to purchase a landmark 1980s supercar of this calibre.Interested parties should note that VAT has not been paid on this car and will be applicable at the buyers local rate.View 1989 Ferrari Testarossa on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1989-ferrari-testarossa-4' for further details.

A larger car than the 512BB – the increase in width being necessary to accommodate wider tires – the Testarossa managed the trick of combining high downforce with a low co-efficient of drag, its body design being notable for the absence of extraneous spoilers and other devices. Luxury touches in the well-equipped cabin included air conditioning, electrically adjustable seats, tilting steering wheel and plentiful leather. Detail improvements were made regularly throughout the Testarossas seven-year production run, one of the first being the adoption of dual door mirrors. One of the most recognizable and iconic models from the Italian company, the Testarossa would grace many young car enthusiasts bedroom walls in poster form during the late 1980s.Finished at the Maranello Ferrari works in October of 1989, the penultimate but one year of Testarossa production, this low-mileage example is finished in a classic Ferrari Rosso red, with a complementary black interior.Today, with just over 12,000 miles on the odometer, this example of Ferraris iconic supercar is in very good order. The interior shows extremely well, with only minor signs of use. The console and dash areas are clean.The exterior paint is detailed, and the black trim and rubber parts show very well. The compartments (engine and front trunk) are clean and original and the classic five-spoke star alloy wheels present beautifully. A better-kept, low mileage example will be hard to find anywhere; this surely represents the best way to purchase a landmark 1980s supercar of this calibre.Interested parties should note that VAT has not been paid on this car and will be applicable at the buyers local rate.View 1989 Ferrari Testarossa on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1989-ferrari-testarossa-4' for further details.

*Regretfully Withdrawn* 1960 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster

*Regretfully Withdrawn* 1960 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster

Lot # 108 (Sale Order: 8 of 88)

The Mercedes 300SL Gullwing coupe was unquestionably among the most remarkable designs of the post WWII era, but its extraordinary complexity and correspondingly phenomenal price both to buy and to run, severely restricted its sales appeal. Add to this the facts that the cabin became close to uninhabitable in hot climates, and the handling in inexperienced hands could be described as challenging, and the car became a very tricky sales proposition , especially in the crucial US market.The first part of a two-pronged solution was to introduce a convertible version of the 300SL, fractionally slower (for aerodynamic reasons) and with mildly tamed handling.But the major change was to bring in the 190SL roadster, First shown at the New York Motor Show in 1955, it carried the stunningly handsome lines and unmistakeable styling cues of the 300SL in a delightfully well-balanced two-seat design, on a conventional chassis, and was powered by a smooth two-litre four cylinder engine of proven reliability and more than adequate potency for any normal requirements. The model was an immediate success, and was to stay in production for more than eight years. Like many another open Mercedes it passed from …new, to …used , to …collectable status in almost unbroken succession, and has maintained its favoured status among collections of much more expensive classic for the past sixty years.This example dates from 1960, and is therefore from the late middle period of production, and is equipped with both a rare and very practical factory hardtop, and a folding soft top. It is very evident on examination that it has been the recipient of a great deal of care and benevolent interest all its life, which has been spent in the North-Eastern region of the USA. The coachwork is finished in Ebony black, and is of an appropriately glossy deep shine, and it has plainly been the recipient of expert refurbishment attention at some point in the cars life.The cars chrome brightwork, correct and original, has also been well kept, contributing to the overall pleasingly authentic feel, and, similarly, one of the rarest and most appealing aspects of its appearance is the very fine state of the shut lines, testifying to over half a centurys careful use. The interior leather is in a singularly handsome shade of wine-red, with correct, matching high-quality carpets., Again, it is evident that the interior has been received major attention at some point in the past, and also that the standard of authenticity and craftsmanship was of an uncommonly high standard. When the car came back to Europe, it was also found to possess exceptional driving qualities, and received a considerable amount of detailed servicing attention, including brakes and normal service items, from the highly-regarded London classic specialist engineer Bob Thredder, and a record of what was carried out is retained in the history file; this includes a current MOT certificate, and the car is of course registered at DVLA.This is a highly desirable example of a remarkable model, with the style and the engineering quality which is as evident now as when the car was introduced to the world, It is sure to provide many years of grace and entertainment, and will grace any collection.View 1960 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1960-mercedes-benz-190sl-roadster' for further details.

1963 Maserati 3500 GTi

Lot # 109 (Sale Order: 9 of 88)

Despite numerous racetrack successes that included Juan Manuel Fangios fifth World Championship – at the wheel of a 250F – and runner-up spot in the World Sportscar Championship with the fabulous 450S, both in 1957, the marques most successful season, Maserati was by that time facing a bleak future.Its parent companys financial difficulties eventually forced a withdrawal from racing and Maseratis survival strategy for the 1960s centered on establishing the company as a producer of road cars. The Modena marques new era began in 1957 with the launch of the Touring-bodied 3500GT, its first road model built in significant numbers.A luxury …2+2, the 3500GT drew on Maseratis competition experience, employing a tubular chassis frame and an engine derived from the 350S sports car unit of 1956.Its designer was none other than Giulio Alfieri, creator of the immortal Tipo 60/61 …Birdcage sports-racer and the man responsible for developing the 250F into a World Championship winner. The twin-overhead-camshaft, six-cylinder engine was a close relative of that used in the 250F and developed around 220bhp initially on carburettors, later examples producing 235bhp on Lucas mechanical fuel injection. Built initially with drum brakes and four-speed transmission, the 3500GT was progressively updated, gaining five speeds, front disc brakes and, finally, all-disc braking before production ceased in 1964.The wonderful 3500 GTi on offer today was the subject of an in-depth restoration from 2005 onwards. Finished in arguably the best colour combination for a 3500 – gunmetal grey over red this wonderful example of the marque is also reported to be in excellent mechanical order.3500GTs continue to gain popularity among collectors and are an excellent value compared to their Ferrari equivalents. Their handsome styling and luxurious appointments make them standout cars of their era.It is increasingly difficult to find good examples like this one.

1988 Bentley Continental Convertible

1988 Bentley Continental Convertible

Lot # 110 (Sale Order: 10 of 88)

The incomparable Bentley Continental sports saloon has been synonymous with effortless high speed cruising in the grand manner since its introduction on the R-Type chassis in 1952. This magnificent tradition seemed to have ended with the demise in 1965 of the successor S-Type Continental, only to re-emerge triumphantly in 1984 with the introduction of the T-Series Continental. Flagship of the range, the new Continental was a worthy scion of this noble British family, impeccably engineered and hand-built in the time-honoured manner by Mulliner Park Ward Limiteds peerless craftsmen. Like its illustrious forebears, the modern Continental represented the ultimate in bespoke coachbuilt motoring, designed to appeal to those discerning – and necessarily very wealthy – clients with the most refined of tastes, a well developed appreciation for the finer things of life and a refusal to accept anything less than the very best. Far from being an outmoded concept, this uncompromising approach was so successful, and demand for the exclusive Continental so sustained, that it remained in production well into the 1990s, the last (Convertible) examples being delivered in 1995, by which time the UK price had risen to well in excess of £100,000.The essence of Continental ownership was most aptly summed up by Autosports inimitable John Bolster. Writing in 1958, Bolster noted that the Continental was a classical design that achieved a high degree of excellence by sheer quality of construction: …In doing so, it develops an individuality, a character, call it what you will, that makes it entirely different from any other marque. The man who drives a Continental lives in an enchanted world, for everybody calls him …sir and he may park where other lesser cars may never tread. Despite the passage of more than 50 years, Bolsters words ring every bit as true today as they did then.The current vendor purchased this Continental Convertible for its condition, and driving quality and it has served its purpose being used for a long four week trip into Europe where it performed faultlessly. Recently serviced and with recent work to the brakes, the car notably benefited from a new hood some 18 months ago. Being offered for sale reluctantly, this beautiful Bentley Continentals history file includes sundry bills, current MoT certificate and a V5C registration document.View 1988 Bentley Continental Convertible on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1988-bentley-continental-convertible' for further details.

1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi

1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi

Lot # 111 (Sale Order: 11 of 88)

Ferraris line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Badged as a …Di-no, the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the preceding Dino V6. The newcomers wedge-shaped styling – by Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina – was not universally well received but there were no complaints about the performance of the 3.0-liter quad-cam V8 engine, which was carried over to its successor.Introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the contemporary styled 308 GTB – Ferraris second V8 road car – marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308 GT4. Badged as a …proper Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308 GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessors underpinnings and transversely mounted engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication.In road tune this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp, an out-put good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph. Produced initially with fiberglass bodywork – the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari, the Scaglietti-built 308 GTB used steel after April 1977. Further developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and, finally, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder on the Quattrovalvole (QV) model in 1982. An exhilarating drivers car and a Ferrari purists delight, the 308 GTSi and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello, with over 12,000 sold.Delivered new to Italy in 1981, this stunning example was imported into the UK by the current owner to add to his varied collection of classic cars. The Ferrari shows a mere 42,000 miles recorded, with just over 4,000 miles having been covered in the last 24 years. Since being brought into the UK the 308 has benefitted from a repaint and now presents beautifully, with a very nice contrasting crema leather interior.The 308 is supplied with the correct Ferrari book pack, wallet, period brochure and tool kit, in addition to a UK V5 document and new MoT certificate. All in all a very well sorted and beautifully presented example of the ultimate entry level Ferrari.View 1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1981-ferrari-308-gtsi-3' for further details.

1967 Lotus Elan S3

Lot # 113 (Sale Order: 13 of 88)

With the introduction of the improved S3 model in September 1965, the Elan became available as a fixed-head coup’© for the first time, having previously been sold only in drophead form with optional separate hardtop. Other civilising improvements included electric windows, re-designed dashboard and better trim. Powerful, light in weight and endowed with exceptional roadholding and handling, the Elan proved an immense commercial success for Lotus, slightly fewer than 9,000 being produced by the time production ceased in 1973.Most interestingly this S3 was not first road registered until 1980 and we understand from previous sale record research that the car may well have been used in competition possibly by the factory prior to that date, the body tub and the rear wings having been modified to accommodate a wider rear track indicating racing specification.We understand over the years the car was the subject of considerable restoration including much engine work. Most recently new front discs as well as many mechanical ancillaries have been renewed making the car an excellent road going example. Offered in very good mechanical condition all round it has recently undergone a new MoT inspection.Since its first registration this charming British sportcar has had a mere 4/5 caring owners meaning that it remains in excellent cosmetic order throughout.Finished in the iconic colour combination of British racing green/gold with black interior, the car is offered with Swansea V5 registration document. The Lotus Elan was named one of the finest handling cars of all time, with light nimble steering and performance to match, this example with its interesting history is certainly a fine example of the marque.View c.1967 Lotus Elan S3 Drophead Coup’© on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/c-1967-lotus-elan-s3-drophead-coupe' for further details.

1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce

1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce

Lot # 114 (Sale Order: 14 of 88)

A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple-yet-elegant “Kamm tail Spider bodywork premiered on the 1970 Spider Veloce would prove enduringly popular, lasting into the 1990s. The Spiders mechanics were essentially those of the Giulia saloon while the engine was the GTVs double-overhead-camshaft four. The original 1750 version was a one-year-only model, with the advent of the Spica-injected 2000 model in 1971. Wind tunnel testing resulted in the 2000s signature drag-reducing Kamm tail, while other improvements over the earlier Duetto models included bigger brakes and a limited-slip differential.

1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL

1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL

Lot # 115 (Sale Order: 15 of 88)

When Mercedes redesigned its famed SL in 1971, there was a lot of equity behind it – after all, when the incomparable 300SL Coupe and Roadster were built fewer than 20 years before, they set the world on fire. The next-generation 230/250/280SL in 1963 brought Mercedes sports car down to Earth, replacing both the incredible 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL. For the next SL, Mercedes started with the chassis of the mid-size “W114/115 model and added the motors from the large “W116 S-Class. The result was a luxurious V8 Convertible that ended up being the longest passenger car series ever produced by Mercedes to date.By the late 1980s – near the end of production – the third-generation Mercedes-Benz SL was somewhat dated. Although it had gotten various updates and new engines over the years, it was still fundamentally the same car Mercedes-Benz had introduced back in 1972. Despite its age, the final iteration, the 560SL, remained a prized automotive status symbol and an iconic part of the brands lineup, until it was finally replaced by the all-new fourth-generation SL in 1990. This highly original example of the Mercedes-Benz 560SL is believed to have been a one owner car in California until may 2015 when it was purchased by its last owner, a collector in Germany.Its one of the extremely rare 560 SLs and one of the last 107 designed models, this example with just 42,000 miles since new and believed by the last owner to be correct, and is condition would indicate so. Elegantly presented in red with original tan interior, this beautiful 560SL is complete with both soft and hardtops and tools. A high quality Mercedes-Benz ideally suited to open top touring, with nearly all the power amenities as a modern car, yet with the elegance and style of the classic Mercedes-Benz SL.

1986 Austin Healey BN2 100M Spec

1986 Austin Healey BN2 100M Spec

Lot # 116 (Sale Order: 16 of 88)

Automotive developer and racer Donald Healey, looking to reach a broader sports car market, developed this iconic British sports car in 1953 using a 4-cylinder Austin A90 engine. An initial success, British Motors Corporation saw the value of a strong competitor to the Triumph TR Series and took over production.The BN2 was fitted with a real four-speed manual transmission, still with overdrive on the top two gears. Other features that distinguish the BN2 from the BN1 are the slightly larger front wheel arches, different rear axle and being the first 100 with optional two-tone paint.In 1955, a high-performance 100M model was introduced, with larger carburettors, a cold air box to increase engine air flow, high-lift camshaft and 8.1:1 compression pistons.It produced 110 bhp (82 kW) at 4500 rpm. The front suspension was stiffened and the bonnet gained louvres, along with a bonnet belt. Approximately 70% of 100Ms were finished with a two-tone paint scheme, including one White over Red and another in Black over Pink for display at the 1955 London Motor Show. In all, 640 100Ms were built by the factory.This Right-hand drive BN2 …100M is believed to have been LeMans specd early on in its life and has all of the correct specifications with upgraded SU carbs rather than the H6 purleys, the reason for the upgraded SUs was for reliability and ease of road use.Presented in two tone Healey blue and white, the Healey was re-imported back to the UK in the 1990s, appeared on …the cars the star documentary with Roger Menadue, Healeys lead road tester and has recently been awarded 2nd place in the 2016 Austin Healey Club National Concours dElegance.Recently fully serviced and Motd the vendor describes the car to be in great mechanical working order and ready to use this summer.

1967 Mercedes-Benz 250SL Pagoda

1967 Mercedes-Benz 250SL Pagoda

Lot # 117 (Sale Order: 17 of 88)

The Mercedes-Benz W113 roadsters, designed by Paul Bracq, were produced from 1963 through to 1971. They were known as the …pagoda roof SL. All models were equipped with an inline-six cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The bonnet, trunk lid, door skins and tonneau cover were made of aluminium to reduce weight. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combined with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes and radial tires gave the W 113 superb handling for its time. The styling of the front, with its characteristic upright Bosch “fishbowl headlights and simple chrome grille, dominated by the large three-pointed star in the nose panel, paid homage to the then already legendary 300 SL roadster.The 250 SL was introduced at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show. Production had already commenced in December 1966 and ended in January 1968. The short one-year production run makes the 250 SL the rarest and most collectable of the W 113 series cars. The 250 SL retained the stiffer suspension and sportier feel of the early SLs, but provided improved agility with a new engine and rear disc brakes. Range also improved with increased fuel tank capacity from 65 L to 82 L. Like its predecessor, the 250 SL was offered with a 4-speed automatic transmission, and 4-speed or ZF 5-speed manual transmissions. For the first time, an optional limited slip differential was also available.The 250 SL also marked the introduction of a 2+2 body style, the so-called “California Coup’©, which had only the removable hardtop and no soft-top: a small fold-down rear bench seat replaced the soft-top well between passenger compartment and trunk. Offered here is the very rare right hand drive California Coupe with manual gearbox, finished in the desirable white with contrasting black hardtop. The current vendor is only the third owner of this very original car which is currently showing just 33,000 miles since new. We are told that there has been very light restoration on the car and the chrome work was recently sent to England where it was cleaned and restored. This car presents very well and is a superb opportunity to acquire the rarest of the Pagoda models in its original and unmolested form. The car is supplied with her Maltese registration certificate and a valid VRT until 2018.View 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250 SL Pagoda on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1967-mercedes-benz-250-sl-pagoda-2' for further details.

1974 Aston Martin V8 Saloon

1974 Aston Martin V8 Saloon

Lot # 118 (Sale Order: 18 of 88)

Aston Martin had always planned that the DBS of 1967 would be powered by the companys 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 Mareks 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 owners manual and history file, this is a beautiful thoroughbred GT car which offers strong investment potential for the future.View 1974 Aston Martin V8 Saloon on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1974-aston-martin-v8-saloon-4' for further details.

1985 Ferrari 208 GTS Turbo

1985 Ferrari 208 GTS Turbo

Lot # 119 (Sale Order: 19 of 88)

In 1980 Ferrari introduced a two-litre version of the 308, the 208 GTB and 208 GTS. Produced mainly for the domestic Italian market, where new cars with engines above 2-litres were subjected to a much higher value added tax. The engine was de-bored to 68.8 mm (giving it an undersquare design) for a total displacement of 1,990.64 cc, resulting in one of the smallest V8 engines ever produced. Fed through four Weber 34 DCNF carburettors, the V8 produced 153 bhp at 6800 rpm.In 1982 the two-litre 208 was succeeded by a turbocharged and fuel injected version, the 208 GTS turbo unveiled at the Turin Motor Show. It was the first ever turbocharged road-going Ferrari. The 208s engine was given a single KKK turbocharger with wastegate valve, Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and Marelli electronic ignition. Forced induction increased power to 217 bhp at 7000 rpm. A GTS version was introduced a year later, in 1983.Both outside and inside the 208 Turbo was almost identical to the contemporary 308 Quattrovalvole. It could be recognized by NACA ducts in front of the rear wheel well openings and “turbo badging on the tail and shrouded exhaust pipes; the normally optional deep front spoiler and black roof aileron were standard.Production ended in 1985 after 437 GTB turbo and 250 GTS turbo cars were produced. In 1986 they were replaced by the 328-based, intercooled GTB/GTS Turbo.The 208 turbo offered here was built in 1985 and first registered in 1987 when it was imported to Malta by the first owner.Finished in Rosso Corsa over Nero leather, the car was used regularly by the first owner around the small island. It was then bought by its second owner who was the President of the Ferrari Owners Club in Malta, who set about a comprehensive restoration. The current vendor is the third owner and has been in possession of the car for the last 17 years. During his ownership the car has been fastidiously maintained and serviced every year at the Cronos Ferrari specialist in Sicily. The vendor describes the car to be in pristine condition, completely rust free and an absolute joy to drive. This particular car was also featured in the Hollywood film, …The Devils Double, where the car was driven sporting early 1990s Iraqi plates by Dominic Cooper. We are told the car performed her duties admirably during a gruelling day of filming, without missing a beat. The vehicle comes with her Maltese registration and a valid VRT until July 2018.View 1985 Ferrari 208 GTS Turbo on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1985-ferrari-208-gts-turbo-2' for further details.

1950 Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible

1950 Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible

Lot # 120 (Sale Order: 20 of 88)

Designed in 1947, built in and released in 1948, the A90 convertible was conceived to earn dollars, and the Austin Motor Co. had it sights set firmly on the US to get them. Initial reaction in the States was that of trepidation, a quirky British car, certainly different, but what is it? Along to the rescue came Alan Hess, the then PR man at Austin, and well known for his daring stunts in the interests of promoting Longbridge products. He conceived the idea of proving the worth of this new Austin, and took off for the racetrack at Indianapolis. With a standard production convertible finished in Seafoam green metallic paint, with biscuit coloured interior, he thrashed the course for 7 days and 7 nights continuously, with the aid of his fellow compatriots, Dennis Buckley, Charles Goodacre, and George Coates. The rewards were high, 63 speed and endurance records achieved, some in new categories, others stolen from their American holders. Today it has a cult status, and is highly sought after by those enthusiasts who long for something Flamboyant, Americanised and Over the Top. In other words something special, and different.This wonderful example was the property of King Farouk of Egypt, the penultimate King of Egypt, succeeding his father Fuad I in 1936. Farouk was only 32 when overthrown in the 1952 military coup detat, and then forced to abdicate and exile to Switzerland. He died in 1965 in Italy. The A90 was first delivered in April of 1950, finished in Seafoam Green with Maize trim, and supplied with an optional radio, which is still fitted today.On his exile Farouk took the car with him to Switzerland, where it later fell into the hands of an A90 enthusiast. In the late 1990s the Atlantic was repatriated into the UK and the long term of ownership of a Mr. David Wilkins, who commissioned a comprehensive restoration over the coming years. After completion the car was then shown on the club stand at the 2014 NEC Classic Car Show. A well known car in Atlantic circles, this nicely restored example, finished in Ice Blue metallic with a Royal Blue leather interior, is supplied with a file of invoices, correspondence, copies of previous title documents, a newly issued MoT certificate, original parts and service manuals and even its original Egyptian registration plate. An interesting choice for the collector, with a fascinating history.View 1950 Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1950-austin-a90-atlantic-convertible' for further details.

After World War II, the company was famous for many years for Lambretta s...morecooters and from 1961 to 1976, Innocenti built, under licence, the Mini with 998cc and 1,275cc engines. At the November 1960 Turin Motor Show, the 950 Spider was presented. Styled by Ghia and produced by OSI near Milan, the style was classical of the era with rear-wheel drive and aesthetically, with small rear fins; the formula of a small car with a small engine and small price tag would meet the demand of the Italian public. From 1963, the car was equipped with a new engine with increased capacity up to 1098cc, designated ‘S’ which also offered small aesthetic changes and the adoption of disc brakes. This fantastic little car is believed to be one of only two in the UK and one of only 2,000 made. It is the later ‘S’ model with the bigger engine, twin carburetors and disc brakes. This car was imported to the UK in 2015 from Rome and has had four owners; it is now registered in the UK with an MoT test certificate valid for a year. The owner believes it underwent a major mechanical rebuild in 2010 and has had a new fuel tank. With the running gear of the Austin-Healey Mk. II Sprite underpinning the car, parts and knowhow are cheap and readily available, thus ensuring this hugely desirable and rare Italian sports car can offer enjoyment for years to come.

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Sport Cabriolet

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Sport Cabriolet

Lot # 121 (Sale Order: 22 of 88)

Porsche developed a reputation early on for their surprising performance from their small displacement rear-engine sports and racing cars. These …giant killers could outperform cars with much higher horsepower figures by making light cars with incredible handling. This combination gave Porsches their truly unique driving characteristics and dedicated following of Porsche enthusiasts.Starting in 1963 with the original 911, Porsche has produced a line of six-cylinder rear-engine sportscars that could compete with much more powerful cars thanks to their low weight and superior handling. The 911 quickly became an icon of performance and handling and offered a driving experience unlike anything else. The 911 has continuously evolved into a more sophisticated, powerful, and capable driving machine, as well as a reliable and usable car.Introduced in 1984, The Carrera 3.2 was the last iteration of the classic 911 before the large changes for the 964. The Carrera 3.2 is fitted with a rear-mounted, air-cooled SOHC 3.2 litre flat six. This engine, equipped with Bosch LE-Jetronic fuel injection, could produce 217 horsepower at 5,900 rpm. Maximum torque was 195 foot-pounds at 4,800 rpm, which was delivered through the Getrag G50 five-speed manual transaxle and hydraulic clutch, much welcomed introductions for the 1987 production year. The Carrera 3.2 also featured an improved interior over its predecessor, the 911 SC, with liberal use of leather and comfort features like power seats, power wing mirrors, and air conditioning.True to Porsches reputation, the Carrera 3.2 offered the unique experience of driving pleasure and performance without sacrificing comfort and usability. Because of their robust construction and strong owners groups, these 1980s 911s are great cars to be enjoyed and driven.This exceptional 3.2 Carrera Cabriolet Sport is the last of the iconic impact bumper cars and is offered in the desirable colour combination of red over grey. With a sizeable history file this Carrera cabriolet has had a recent full engine rebuild and comes with bills and invoices of much maintenance work. Described by the vendor to be in excellent all-round condition this example is ready to be used with a recent mot until 20/06/18.911s of this era are amongst the fastest, most driveable supercars you can own. Dial in the wind-in-the -hair fun of the cabriolet and you have a dream classic 911 in which to embark on summer tours, or merely blast through the lanes on a Sunday morning.View 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Sport Cabriolet on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1988-porsche-911-carrera-sport-cabriolet' for further details.

1987 Ferrari Mondial

1987 Ferrari Mondial

Lot # 122 (Sale Order: 23 of 88)

The final Mondial evolution was 1989s Mondial t (Coupe and Cabriolet). It was a substantially changed model, “spearhead of a new generation of V8 Ferraris, according to Road & Track magazine. It was visually different from preceding Mondial models, the most recognisable being the redesign of the air intakes to a smaller rectangular shape. Additionally, the door-handles were of a visually different design, as were the front and rear bumpers which became body coloured. New front and rear wings cover wider tracks and are re-profiled to a fuller shape compared to preceding models, which feature a rolled lip.The …t called attention to the cars new engine/transmission layout: the previously-transverse engine was now mounted longitudinally whilst the gearbox remained transverse, thus forming a …t. By adopting this layout, a longer engine could be mounted lower in the chassis, improving handling dramatically. The …t configuration was used by Ferraris Formula One cars of the 1980s, and would be the standard for the marques future mid-engined V8 cars, beginning with the 348, introduced later in the year. The transverse manual gearbox was fitted with a Limited Slip Differential with a twin-plate clutch design with bevel gears driving the wheels.Considerably more spacious than previous Ferrari 2+2s, the Pininfarina-styled Mondial has been described by Car magazine as …the closest youll get to supercar family transport.This very special 3.4 T Mondial Cabriolet on offer today shows little mileage for its age and is one of just 51 right hand drive examples produced, it is supplied with a history file including service history and previous Mots. It is rare to find such a spectacular car in such a colour combination, surely a magnificent opportunity to acquire a car with great provenance and careful ownership, simply stunning.View 1987 Ferrari Mondial on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1987-ferrari-mondial' for further details.

2005 ASTON MARTIN VANQUISH S

2005 ASTON MARTIN VANQUISH S

Lot # 122A (Sale Order: 25 of 88)

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 ...morea 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. 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. Finished in meteorite silver with obsidian black interior, this UK delivered right hand drive Vanquish S has covered under 20,000 miles from new. It comes with a vast history file showing that no expense has ever been spared and a full main dealer service record to support it. This includes an upgraded Alpine sound system with rear camera and the very rare and sought after, manual gearbox conversion by Aston Martin Works. Also included is the original manual, a V5C log book and MOT certificate valid until November 2017.

1976 Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2

1976 Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2

Lot # 123 (Sale Order: 24 of 88)

…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 Ferraris determination to compete with the worlds 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 predecessors 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.View 1976 Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1976-ferrari-365-gt4-22-3' for further details.
