Porsche 944 Turbo S

Porsche 944 Turbo S

Lot # 67631 (Sale Order: 1 of 52)

The Porsche 944 was built from 1982 to 1991 and was built on the same platform as the 924. It was intended to last into the 1990's but major revisions planned for a 944 S3 model were eventually rolled into the 968 instead which replaced the 944. The 944 was a successful model and was available as both a coupé and cabriolet in naturally aspirated and turbocharged forms. In mid 1985, the Porsche 944 underwent significant changes. The post 1985 cars, turbos and S variants are considered more desirable than the earlier cars, having improved interiors, suspensions and engines, together with a limited slip differential and larger brakes.Originally registered on 1st August 1988 this rare Porsche 944 turbo S is finished in the delightful colour combination of Slate Grey with black leather interior. A good history folder accompanies F356 JNX detailing the last cambelt change. We are advised the car has in recent years benefitted from a new radiator, clutch and a rebuild of the gearbox. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with an MoT test certificate valid until 3rd August 2018. A Porsche 944 turbo S is regarded as the ultimate 944, the comfort and performance on offer is synonymous with the marque.

Aston Martin Virage Volante

Aston Martin Virage Volante

Lot # 67641 (Sale Order: 2 of 52)

The Virage was Aston Martin's replacement for the decades old V8 models and introduced at the Birmingham Motor Show in 1988.  This V8 powered car was intended as the company's top model with their 6 cylinder 1994 DB7 slotted below it but this V8 model (by then in Vantage form) remained the exclusive, expensive and hand built king of Astons. The Virage was a large, heavy car in spite of its all aluminium body, but the 32-valve 5.3 litre V8 engines elevated its performance to sports car levels. "Acceleration just never seems to run out", claimed Sports Car International on a first test. They also praised the "eager and quicker revving" nature of the engine with its Callaway designed heads and Weber Marelli fuel injection. "Nothing sounds quite like an Aston V8”, they concluded. The Virage Volante convertible debuted at the 1990 Birmingham Motor Show with production examples beginning in 1992 featuring 2+2 seating. Sources claim that between 224 and 233 examples had been produced when the series ended in 1996.Registered on 25th September 1992 this example is presented in an extremely rare finish of Suffolk red with cream leather and boasts just two previous owners. This collectable Aston Martin Virage Volante has undergone a full body restoration to an extremely high level and the results are extremely satisfying. Mechanically the car is described by the vendor as perfect, having received a top end rebuild and the interior is as new. The restoration process importantly retained all factory specifications and thus the car has the original matching numbers engine and gearbox.The vendor describes the comprehensive body restoration as a "better than the factory finish" and adds that the full onboard computer has been rebuilt at an extraordinary cost with all electrics comprehensively checked, as the modern (at the time) electronic systems were a weakness that Virage's suffered from. Within the history file this example has all the original manuals, wallets and two keys.This car, with four brand new original tyres and with a tonneau cover is ready to drive and enjoy. Only 233 Virage Volantes were manufactured and sold by Aston Martin and with later examples creeping up in price, any Volante looks to be a sound future investment proposition. In particular, this vehicle, with its outstanding condition, is a wonderful opportunity for the serious investor or collector to acquire one of the last hand built cars made by Aston Martin.

Aston Martin DB9

Aston Martin DB9

Lot # 67653 (Sale Order: 3 of 52)

The DB9 was the star of the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show where it was unveiled to the public for the very first time. This car, perhaps above any other modern Aston Martin, recaptured the imagination and spearheaded the resurgence of the British car brand. The sleek superform aluminium body was initially designed by Ian Callum but had also been significantly influenced by the next director of AM design, Hendrik Fisker. Powered by the familiar and fabulous 6.0 litre V12 engine, the Coupé was capable of a top speed of 186mph and boasted 450 bhp.The DB9 bodyshell weighed 25% less than that of the DB7 but had doubled its torsional rigidity and engineering accuracy; this ensured the chassis performance matched the engine power. Aston Martin have always made the interior of their cars a very special place to be and the DB9 was no exception. The interior was beautifully tailored with the finest of materials, including Bridge of Weir leather, aluminium and wood, with customers being offered a choice of a walnut, mahogany or bamboo finish.This stunning example was first registered on 1st June 2006 and is offered in Mako Blue with contrasting cream full leather and walnut dash. Having covered relatively few miles this example boasts a comprehensive service history with six services notably from JCT600, Stratstone and an Aston Martin specialist in both 2014 at 24,105 miles and in 2016 at 26,242 miles. The vendor has also indicated a new MOT test certificate will be supplied. Aston Martin DB9's are superb to look at and even better to drive, with this one being no exception and appearing to be fabulous value for money.

Today, this model is very much establishing itself as a most worthy latter day classic, good examples being eagerly sought by connoisseurs of the marque. With this in mind, is there a better way to enjoy the summer months ahead?Please note: The private registration plate pictured is to be retained by the vendor.

MG C Roadster

MG C Roadster

Lot # 67682 (Sale Order: 5 of 52)

Manufactured between 1967 and August 1969, the MGC was intended as a replacement for the Austin Healey 3000. The engines produced 145bhp and were fitted with twin SU carburettors. The bodyshell was revised around the engine bay and the floorpan, but externally the only differences between the MGB and the MGC were a distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a discrete teardrop to allow clearances for the carburettors.The vendor advises that he has covered very little mileage during his ownership. The coachwork, although not in concours condition, presents well and looks attractive in British Racing Green and is complimented by a set of chrome wire wheels. Of particular note is the underside that is clean with sharp seam lines; this is confirmed by the reassuring way the doors shut, thus demonstrating the structural integrity of this MGC. The interior, finished in black, is also in good order with seats that show no signs of rips or tears and an attractive finishing touch to the interior is the leather rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel. The boot area is also clean and tidy and has a spare painted wire wheel stowed along with a spinner, hammer and jack; the boot lid having a chrome boot rack to enable further luggage to be stowed for those longer trips. The hood is in excellent condition and a tonneau cover is included. The six cylinder engine starts easily with choke and the drive is via a manual four-speed overdrive gearbox. The history file includes a V5C registration document, invoices, a selection of MG Owner’s Club magazines and a very useful Leyland MGC workshop manual. We are advised that this MG will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate and the owner has overhauled the front brakes and also fitted a new coil and fuel pump. Offered at a reasonable reserve, this attractive UK supplied right hand drive MGC will surely find a lucky new owner.

Aston Martin V8 Series III

Aston Martin V8 Series III

Lot # 67694 (Sale Order: 6 of 52)

The six cylinder William Towns styled DBS had been around for a couple of years anxiously awaiting the V8 engine that had been especially designed for it. In early 1970, the DBS V8 was finally ready to become one of the fastest cars available at the time. The 5.3 litre Tadek Marek-designed engine was able to develop around 320bhp, which gave the ability to reach 160mph; all this with space for four people. Demand for the car was great with production reaching 402 examples within just two years. From April 1972, the DBS V8 received a mild restyle and a new name. The 'DB' was dropped as David Brown had sold the company and the car became known simply as the 'Aston Martin V8'. The most visible change was the adoption of two 7" quartz iodine headlamps and black mesh grill, the design of which was the work of the original designer, William Towns.This Aston Martin V8 was first registered on the 19th October 1973 and, importantly, is a manual gearbox example and one of just 258 made. Offered in Mendip Blue with blue leather upholstery, this example is in fabulous condition and has had just three owners from new. In 2016, the current vendor decided to commission Trinity Engineering of Chobham, Surrey, to undergo a full shakedown on the glorious V8 engine. What started as a shakedown swiftly developed into a minor restoration resulting in a final bill just shy of £22,000. Invoices in the history file from Trinity show works including; to the engine, an updated viscous fan, refurbished radiator and a full engine service including synchronising the throttle butterflies and setting the throttle position. A new clutch master cylinder was also fitted, the differential assembly was removed, new drive shaft bearings fitted together with new wheel bearings and prop shaft. The steering rack was replaced and the brake system completely overhauled. All electrics were checked for operation before a few minor cosmetic works were carried out and then returned to the vendor. With recent work to such a high standard and fitted with its original engine, this Aston Martin V8 is a particularly attractive proposition and epitomises everything about a British built grand tourer of the seventies.A current MoT test certificate, valid until September 2018 with no advisories, can be found in the history file as well as a new service invoice from Trinity Engineering, All give confidence to the gorgeous sound of the V8 engine. The armchair like seats and the tactile switchgear all contribute to the effortless power and style of this beautiful motor car.

Aston Martin Vantage V550

Aston Martin Vantage V550

Lot # 67695 (Sale Order: 7 of 52)

While the Vantage did bear some resemblance to the Virage, closer examination would reveal many differences - more obvious of which are the deep front spoiler, its lower stance and the flared wheel arches, which all combine to give the car a fearsome appearance, in fact only the roof and doors were common to both cars. Priced at close to £200,000 when new, these rare and powerful cars were hand built at The Aston Martin factory at Newport Pagnell. It was equipped with a 5.3 litre V8 engine sporting twin superchargers with the power output around 550 bhp, and the torque was equally impressive at 555 ft/lbs. Top speed was 186 mph, with a 0-60 mph time of just 4.6 seconds - an astonishing feat for such a large car and at the time, this was the most powerful production engine in the world. This right hand drive example, with a manual gearbox, was originally supplied by Aston Martin dealer Reg Vardy in Tyne and Wear to Mr Stephen Gibson, Chairman of Middlesbrough Football Club. It was first registered on 27th October 1997 and finished in Suffolk red coachwork with magnolia hide and red piping. Under Mr Gibson's tenure the car had nine service stamps from Reg Vardy, He sold the car in March 2003 to an Aston Martin enthusiast and the new owner then instructed AM Works Service to maintain the car with the history file containing invoices for servicing and maintenance throughout his ownership. Our vendor purchased this car in December 2014 with 57,000 miles covered and in the five years since has travelled less than 4,000 milesThe car is supplied with a comprehensive Aston Martin service history as below18.11.1997 - Reg Vardy 1896 miles 30.03.1998 - Reg Vardy 7271 miles 28.08.1998 - Reg Vardy 13,477 miles 16.02.1999 - Reg Vardy 17,582 miles 22.09.1999 - Reg Vardy 24,320 miles 09.06.2000 - Reg Vardy 32,088 miles 03.01.2001 - Reg Vardy 38,551 miles 13.07.2001 - Reg Vardy 43,471 miles 08.02.2002 - Reg Vardy 48,880 miles 06.02.2004 - Aston Martin Works Service 52,100 miles  01.05.2007 - Aston Martin Works Service 54,580 miles 24.05.2011 - Aston Martin Works Service 56,852 miles 01.06.2013 - Harwoods Aston Martin 57,366 miles 25.09.2014 - Aston Engineering Derby 57,499 miles 25.04.2016 - Aston Engineering Derby 58,301 miles 13.03.2018 - AJ Tech Automotive 60,385 milesIn April 2003 the car was sent to the AM Works Service to have a replacement gearbox (at 50,000 miles approx) at a cost of £7792. A major service was carried out with Harwoods in 2013, which included a brand new clutch. Additional invoices from numerous specialists are contained in the very large history file including recent bills with Aston Martin trained technician and race prep engineer currently running an Aston Martin GT4, Will Khoo who owns and runs AJ Tech Automotive and whom the fastidious vendor trusts immensely.Will Khoo who owns and runs AJ Tech by saying he is the senior race technician for a team that currently runs an Aston Martin GT4.A total of 16 stamps can be found in the service booklet and this Vantage is supplied with the original owners handbooks, service booklets and invoices, current MoT test certificate and full UK V5C registration document. It is a genuine three former keeper car from new that has clearly been maintained regardless of expense and presents a rare opportunity to own one of the last coachbuilt Aston Martins.

The 308 GTB was launched at the Paris Motor Show in 1975 and was built alongside the 308 GT4, designed as a replacement for the 246 Dino. Designed by Leonardo Fiorvanti, the man who styled some of the most iconic Ferraris including the Daytona, the new 308 was a rakish and attractive body which fused classic elements of Ferrari styling with a thoroughly modern design. For the first two years of production the body of the 308 was produced in fibreglass, after which steel was used. The 308 shared a similar tube frame chassis as the original Dino and 308 GT4 with four wheel double wishbone independent suspension. The gearbox was a five speed manual unit with all synchromesh. In 1982 the Quattrovalvole (QV) engine was introduced which featured four valves per cylinder and saw power increase to 245bhp at 7000rpm from 214bhp of the earlier 308 GTBi engine. Performance was impressive with 0-60mph attained in 6.7 seconds, 0-100mph in 14.30 seconds and on to a top speed of 156mph.  This Ferrari 308 GTS was supplied new by Maranello Sales Ltd, Egham in March 1985 to a London based property developer.  At the end of the 1980’s he decided a little more power was required, so he approached Nigel Mansell’s Ferrari Dealership, Emblem Sports Cars in Dorset, and asked them to fit the fuel injected four litre V12 400 series engine, taking the top speed of this car to over 200mph. Ferrari did not usually release their engines for use in other projects, but it is believed that Mansell was able to acquire the £75,000 unit as he had a great relationship with the factory, having driven for their F1 team for two years. The vendor located the car in 2013, following a ten year period in storage. The person that did the conversion, Nigel Hudson, was entrusted to carry out an extensive two year recommissioning programme. The result is a very special Ferrari and one that can only be described as a ‘wolf in sheep's clothing’. This example is believed to be one of only four 308s worldwide that boasts a V12 engine. Finished in the delightful colour combination of Blue Chiaro with cream leather interior, this Ferrari is supplied with a V5C registration document, a current MoT test certificate together with a history folder. A superb rare 308 that offers style and power in abundance.

Cadillac Fleetwood Ghostbusters Hearse

Cadillac Fleetwood Ghostbusters Hearse

Lot # 67750 (Sale Order: 10 of 52)

This stunning Ghostbusters Ecto 1 replica is based on the car from the newer 2016 movie featuring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. Although it looks like something from the '70s or '80s, this Ghostbusting recreation is in fact based on a 1991 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham Hearse built by Superior Coachbuilders in the States. The car has just over 53,000 miles on the clock and we are advised she drives well. As the car was previously used as a Hearse in West Plains, Missouri it has been extremely well cared for and is in good all round condition. The engine purrs quietly, the automatic gears change smoothly and the suspension is as soft as Marshmallow man. Inside, the interior has the original blue brocade with electric windows and electric seats, which was a very high specification for a car from the early 90s. The project took a great deal of time and patience to complete. The car has been professionally wrapped in white vinyl with full Ghostbusters decals and comes with whitewall tyres and the original red steel Cadillac wheels, with modified chrome hub caps to match the original movie car. A brand new vinyl roof really sets the car off and with a hand built roof rack, featuring all of the props, ladders, flashing lights and sirens, this car is a real show stopper. The car also comes with interior MP3 player and a PA system that can play music through an external speaker. To top it all off the car has an official Ghost Emblem / Bonnet mascot at the front, which is an extremely collectable item. According to the chassis, the Cadillac was built at the Lansing, Michigan plant in 1991 as a four door saloon before a conversion by Superior Coach Company to a hearse. An ideal opportunity for a rental vehicle for children’s parties, weddings etc. Interested parties are advised to view the vehicle in person, who are you going to call; Historics.Photographs supplied courtesy of Reinis B Photography

Porsche 911 / 996 Turbo

Porsche 911 / 996 Turbo

Lot # 67761 (Sale Order: 11 of 52)

The 996 model is a superb car; quick, reliable, well made and the birth of the water cooled Porsche 911. With a wide range of models on offer, the most iconic is, of course, the Turbo. Featuring four wheel drive and a 3.6 litre, intercooled engine, derived from the 1998 Le Mans winning GT-1 car, pushing out 420bhp and hitting 60mph in a whisker over four seconds, this is genuine supercar territory.  The 996 was seen as a more relaxed and usable 911; however, in Turbo guise, the driver would get the best of both worlds; a luxury leather interior with every creature comfort combined with the ability to drop the hammer and reach a top speed of a claimed 190 mph. The 996 Turbo was available with either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed tiptronic transmission with revised styling and a wider stance than the naturally aspirated 996 Carreras along with new bi-xenon headlamps. The turbo also came with VarioCam Plus as well as stability management - a necessity with over 400 bhp under your right foot.Performance can be described as 'ballistic' when behind the wheel of a turbo charged Porsche.  However, due to the modern 911 being such a capable daily driver, mileage on early cars can swiftly reach into six figures resulting in lower mileage models becoming rare for any collector or enthusiast. With just a little over 13,000 miles from new, our example is immaculately presented in the best colour combination metallic black with almost as new black leather trim and has clearly led a pampered life.  First registered on the 1st December 2004 and supplied by West London Porsche, Chiswick this Tiptornic example has had just one owner from new and been serviced by Porsche main dealers only. The last service was performed by the Porsche Service centre at Brooklands in February 2017 and they have cared for the car over the past year. They have stated that, if a buyer were inclined, they would be able to supply a Porsche warranty on this example describing this process as a formality and subject to the normal warranty cost. This car is indeed that impressive to view and drive.We are informed that all electrics operate as they should and the gear change through the 5-speed tiptronic gearbox is faultless. Under the wide wheel arches sit iconic turbo alloy wheels, fully refurbished and as new, with near new tyres all round. Included in the history file is a comprehensive service book showing four stamps from Porsche main dealers, all manuals and Navigation CD's in the dealer supplied  leather pouch. This is a superb example of an ever appreciating 911 in such fabulous condition and with extremely low ownership and mileage, so viewing is highly recommended.

Mercedes-Benz 260E

Mercedes-Benz 260E

Lot # 67762 (Sale Order: 12 of 52)

The W124 was designed to endure many miles with awards actually given and worn by high mileage versions. Much of the 124's engineering and many of its features were advanced automotive technology at its introduction, incorporating innovations that have been adopted throughout the industry. It had one of the lowest coefficient of drag (Cd) of any vehicle of the time due to its aerodynamic body which included plastic moulding for the undercarriage to streamline airflow beneath the car, reducing fuel consumption and wind noise. It had a single windscreen wiper that had an eccentric mechanism at its base that extended the wiper's reach to the top corners of the windscreen.This fabulous example, in dark blue with blue cloth interior, was recently imported from Japan and is probably one of the best examples of this extremely popular model. It has only covered a mere 15,040 kilometres from new and as such, is in wonderful condition throughout. This car comes with air conditioning, electric windows, cruise control, automatic transmission and tool kit including its reflective triangle. It will come with a V5C registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate. These models were made to last and to have one with such low mileage surely must be unique!

Mercedes-Benz 560 SL Roadster

Mercedes-Benz 560 SL Roadster

Lot # 67770 (Sale Order: 13 of 52)

Launched in late 1985, the 560 SL convertible was the latest in Mercedes-Benz's long and much loved line of luxury sports cars that could trace its lineage back to the 230 SL of 1963. In the 560 SL's case its Type 107 bodyshell had debuted on the 350 SL (introduced in 1970) and this timeless style would continue in production for another five years. The 560 SL was powered by a 5.5-litre, overhead camshaft V8 engine producing 227bhp, an output good enough for a top speed of 220kh with 100kmh reachable in around eight seconds. There were improvements to the running gear in the form of anti-dive, anti-squat rear suspension, a limited slip differential and revised steering geometry. Other noteworthy features, incorporated as standard in this classic automobile, included leather upholstery, anti lock braking, an anti theft alarm system, stereo radio/cassette, leather trimmed steering wheel, gear lever and an improved climate control system. This lovely example of this iconic classic Mercedes-Benz sports car is presented in white with blue cloth interior and also comes with its factory hard top. It also comes with air conditioning, electric windows as well as climate control. It was recently imported from Japan and comes with good paperwork, including a mileage certification certificate. These are sublime touring sports cars with its wonderful and effortless V8 providing ample power when required, and considering one recently has sold in the USA for $96,000 this is extremely competitively priced. This car will come with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate.

Mercedes-Benz SL 500

Mercedes-Benz SL 500

Lot # 67780 (Sale Order: 14 of 52)

Following the resounding success of the R107, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL had a rather tough act to follow, as it still had to carry on the tradition of a fast and reliable grand touring convertible. The advantage designers had with the R129 was technology. By the time the final car rolled off the production line in 1989, these earlier models had been in production for 18 years with very little change. Therefore, the SL 500 featured many new and innovative ideas, such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi link rear axle. In addition to this was a fully operating electric roof, windows, door mirrors and seats, which made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The new SL also boasted a more powerful engine and the stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance.This wonderful right hand drive example of this popular sports car, recently imported from Japan, has covered a mere 17,290 km from new and, as such, is in fantastic condition. It is presented in Azurite Blue with blue leather interior and comes with air conditioning, climate control, electric folding mirrors, electric heated seats with memory function. This car also has cruise control, a blue hood, a factory hardtop and it’s original book pack. This is probably one of the best examples on the market today and they are becoming very desirable, especially with low mileage.

Jaguar  XJ8 (3.2 litre)

Jaguar XJ8 (3.2 litre)

Lot # 67799 (Sale Order: 16 of 52)

Jaguar XJ is the designation used for the series of luxury saloons sold under the British marque. The first XJ was launched in 1968 and the designation has been used for successive Jaguar flagship models ever since. The original model was the last Jaguar saloon to have had the input of Sir William Lyons, the company's founder. With the introduction of the X308 generation in 1997 came a switch from the 'XJ6' nomenclature to 'XJ8', reflecting the fact that the X308 cars were powered by a new V8 engine. The exterior styling of the X308 was similar to its predecessor the X300, with minor refinements such as a change to oval indicator lenses and round fog lights. The interior was also updated to eliminate the instrument binnacle used on the X300; instead, three large gauges were set into recesses in the walnut faced dashboard in front of the driver. The major mechanical change was the replacement of both the inline-six and V12 engines with new eight-cylinder V8 in either 3.2 litre or 4.0 litre versions. Manual transmission was not available with all X308 models supplied with a five-speed automatic gearbox.This is probably one of the finest examples of Jaguar’s flagship models, which came out in 1997, and imported recently from Japan, it is presented in dark blue with beige leather and velour interior. It has covered just over 2000 miles from new and comes with all books and spare keys, air conditioning and electric windows. This is the 3.2 litre V8 model providing a superbly quiet and refined ride with power to boot when needed. These models were produced to compete at the highest level with their German rivals and were deemed to be more reliable than its predecessor. The interior is as new and the bodywork is in great condition. At a reasonable reserve, this car is certainly good value considering its exemplary condition.

Made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000, Austin, Morris and Rover all have models which captured the imagination with Cooper, Cooper S and 1275 GT to mention a few. It has, however, always been the original, perhaps standard Mini that enjoyed most success with the British public; small, economical and hugely practical thanks to its space saving front wheel drive layout, allowing 80% of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage.The Mini Mk.I had three major UK updates; the Mk.II, the Clubman and the Mk.III. The most obvious changes were larger doors with concealed hinges and customer demand led to the sliding windows being replaced with wind-up windows. The suspension also reverted from Hydrolastic to rubber cones as a cost saving measure.This delightful and fully restored Morris Mini 850 is a rare automatic example. Presented in Teal Blue with a Snowberry White roof and retrimmed interior, this example boasts an upgraded period radio. Described by the vendor as a full nut and bolt restored example, he purchased the car from a Mr. Frame a friend who had, in his spare time, restored the car. Receipts for parts and the full respray can be found in the history file accompanied by a British Mini Club valuation certificate dated 6th April 2017 with a value of £7500, original service book, handbooks and 23 MoT test certificates. Since our vendor has owned the car he tells us he has used it every day for the past year but as he now needs to do longer journeys he has to let the delightful Mini find a new home. Offered with an MoT test certificate until February 2019 this is an ideal opportunity to own a fabulous British motoring icon.

Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Roadster

Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Roadster

Lot # 67827 (Sale Order: 19 of 52)

In 1963, Mercedes-Benz announced an all new roadster to replace the 190 SL, the 230 SL and the 300 SL. The 230 SL 'Pagoda' was a stunning Paul Bracq designed two seater convertible that followed Mercedes-Benz's new design language featuring crisp lines and upright headlights. To save on weight, the hood, door skins and boot lid were all composed of aluminium. The nickname 'Pagoda' was quickly adopted, thanks to the slightly concave roof on the removable hardtop, which resembled a Pagoda roof. In 1967, Mercedes-Benz introduced the third and final versionof the 'Pagoda', the 280 SL, it became apparent that some cars do not change, just get better!The 280 SL featured the same modified W111 chassis with a rear swing axle, independent front suspension and four wheel disc brakes. Power came from a 2.8 litre version of the Mercedes-Benz robust inline six engine and used Bosch fuel injection. A charming model, with capable handling and brakes, thanks to its suspension and allwheel disc brakes, these roadsters also had one of the most beautiful bodies produced in the 1960s.This fabulous example presented in the original factory colour of Claret with Cognac leather interior was the subject of a full nut and bolt restoration about six years ago in Germany. This stunning car is a matching numbers example as per its data tag, including axles, engine and chassis. It has the desirable automatic transmission and black hood as well as a factory hard top. This is probably one of the finest examples of these iconic and glamorous German sports cars of the 1960s, it surely must be a wonderful addition to any collection or to just simply enjoy on the roads of Britain or Europe.* Interested parties should note that a full set of professional pictures will follow shortly

Porsche 911 / 930 Turbo

Porsche 911 / 930 Turbo

Lot # 67833 (Sale Order: 20 of 52)

Porsche began experimenting with turbocharging technology on their racing cars during the late 1960s and, in 1972, began development on a turbocharged version of the 911. They originally needed to produce the car in order to comply with homologation regulations and had intended on marketing it as a street legal racer like the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS. Ernst Fuhrmann adapted the turbo technology, originally developed for the 917/30 CAN-AM car, to the 3.0 litre flat six from the Carrera RS 3.0, creating what Porsche internally dubbed as a '930'. The Turbo’s characteristic flared wheel arches and ‘tea-tray’ rear spoiler had already been seen on the Carrera model, while the interior was the most luxurious ever seen in a 911, featuring leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. In1978, the Turbo’s engine was enlarged to 3.3 litres, gaining an intercooler in the process; power increased to 300bhp and the top speed, of what was the fastest accelerating road car of its day, went up to 160mph. More refined than hitherto, yet retaining its high performance edge, the Porsche 930 Turbo sold in the thousands, arguably becoming the definitive sports car of its era.This absolutely superb matching numbers example presented in metallic brown with Pacca interior (sometimes known as Cognac), has had £25,000 worth of factory upgrades, which are fully documented in its substantial history file. It comes with all service books, manuals and its original tool kit, which is rare with models of this era. Factory options fitted when manufactured are air conditioning together with electric windows and the car also retains its original factory fitted stereo. These Turbo models offer exhilarating performance from their 3.3 litre engines, outperforming many modern sports cars today. They are highly sought after and are certainly on the bucket list for many collectors.

Alfa Romeo Duetto 1600 Round Tail Spider

Alfa Romeo Duetto 1600 Round Tail Spider

Lot # 67838 (Sale Order: 21 of 52)

The ancestry of the Alfa Romeo Duetto started with the Pininfarina designed Spider Speciale Aerodinamica shown at the 1961 Turin Motor Show. Concept to production took a little longer in those days, so the Duetto only came into fruition in 1966. Initially it was not well received and quickly earned the nickname 'Osso di Seppoa' (cuttlefish). The name 'Duetto' came about from a competition held by Alfa Romeo to distinguish the car from its Giulia 105 series stable mates, the Coupé and Berlina, and was accepted for its reference to the two seat layout.This matching numbers car, manufactured on 1st August 1967, is a stunning example presented in white with its original vinyl black interior and has a black hood. Over the last two years, this Alfa Romeo underwent a complete mechanical overhaul at a cost of about £7,000 by an Alfa Romeo specialist in Loanhead, Midlothian for which receipts can be seen on file. These particular Series One models of this iconic Italian sports car are by far the most desirable and attractive of the Spiders built, with its fantastic open top motoring, sloping lines and lively performance.

Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet

Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet

Lot # 67858 (Sale Order: 23 of 52)

Mercedes-Benz expanded the well regarded W124 E-Class range to include a stylish coupé version launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1987, featuring a lower roofline and pillarless side treatment in the best Stuttgart coupé tradition. Built on a slightly reduced wheelbase, the interior was redesigned to accommodate four adults with individual rear seats and unique touches – including the automatic arm that offered front seat passengers their seat belts and set the coupés apart from their four-door cousins. With open top cars making a comeback in the latter part of the 1980s, Mercedes-Benz engineers set about adding a cabriolet variant to the W124 line-up, extensively reinforcing the coupés bodyshell to make it more rigid, without compromising safety. In fact there were over 1,000 modifications to the cabriolet’s body, including a system of protective head restraints, activated by a computer, in the event of a rollover. The hood was typically well finished, with heated rear glass and beautiful fitting, folding into the boot to completely disappear when stowed, while a wind deflector and power mechanism were two extra cost options.This one owner from new vehicle, is presented in metallic silver with grey leather interior and comes with a black electric hood. The car was originally purchased in Guernsey in 1988 and the mileage is genuine according to the owner. These cabriolet models have gained in popularity and have become very retro to some and certainly at no reserve, this particular car is supplied with a V5C registration document and is a great everyday form of transport at an extremely reasonable price.

Volkswagen Trekker (Type 182)

Volkswagen Trekker (Type 182)

Lot # 67868 (Sale Order: 24 of 52)

The Volkswagen Type 181 was a two-wheel drive, four-door, convertible, off-road vehicle manufactured by Volkswagen from 1968 to 1983. During the 1960s, several European governments began co-operating on development of a vehicle known as the Europa Jeep, a lightweight, amphibious four-wheel drive vehicle that could be mass produced for use by various national military and government groups. Development of the vehicle proved time consuming and the West German government needed a limited number of light, inexpensive, durable transport vehicles that could fulfill their basic needs while the Europa Jeep was being developed and put into production. Originally developed for the West German Army, the Type 181 was also sold to the public, as the Kurierwagen in West Germany and the Trekker in the United Kingdom. Volkswagen imported 300 right hand drive Trekkers Type 182 during 1974-75 but only 71 were sold starting at chassis number 185 2086406, making them rarer than a Series One, flat-floor Jaguar E-Type.Originally registered on 1st November 1975 this Volkswagen is the sixth Trekker brought into the UK and is quite possibly the oldest surviving example. The vendor is a fastidious classic car enthusiast and has ensured this Volkswagen presents in good order. The 1595cc air-cooled engine started immediately when requested and runs well. The green bodywork is in good order and is corrosion free. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate. This genuine right hand drive Trekker Type 182 is rare and also great fun to drive.

Jensen Interceptor Mk. III Convertible

Jensen Interceptor Mk. III Convertible

Lot # 67879 (Sale Order: 25 of 52)

The Jensen Interceptor is a sporting GT-class car that was hand built at the Kelvin Way Factory near Birmingham between 1966 and 1976. Jensen had extensively used glass-reinforced plastic for the fabrication of body panels in the preceding two decades but the new Interceptor saw a return to a steel body-shell designed by an outside firm, Carrozzeria Touring of Italy. The early bodies were Italian built by Vignale before production by Jensen themselves in West Bromwich began; with subtle body modifications. The Interceptor took its styling cues from the Brasinca Uirapuru, with a distinctive large, curving wraparound rear window that doubled as a tailgate. The original specification included electric windows, reclining front seats, a wood rimmed steering wheel, radio with twin speakers, reversing lights and an electric clock. Power steering was included as standard from September 1968.This delightful Interceptor Convertible was imported into the UK by the vendor. He has invested substantial time and funds to ensure the car now presents in excellent order throughout. The black interior trim is delightful and complemented by the beautiful wood dashboard with a plethora of switches and gauges. The maroon coachwork is in very good condition, as is the chrome work and the aluminium wheels. The 7200cc V8 engine sounds superb and runs very well, this is mated to an automatic gearbox which functions as it should. Supplied with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 1st February 2019, this handsome left hand drive Jensen is offered for sale at a very realistic estimate.
