1996 Caterham Super 7 Sprint

1996 Caterham Super 7 Sprint

Lot # 501 (Sale Order: 1 of 62)

Absolutely immaculate in Gloss Black and Lotus Yellow. 26,996 milesPowered by a tuned Ford Kent engine bored to 1740cc. Upgraded rear axle with disc brakesFIA Roll-hoop, Willans 3'' race belts, plumbed-in 2.25-litre 'Life Line', Toyo R888 Proxes on Compomotive alloysThe engine was fully rebuilt by ex-Ford Boreham man Alan Baker with full photographic evidenceChassis stripped, shot blasted and repainted as were the suspension parts in 2007Withpost-build inspection report, original Owners Manual, and the Assembly Handbook Automotive genius though he was, one imagines that the late Colin Chapman would be rather surprised that the Lotus Seven he launched at the 1957 Earls Court Motor Show, and then sold the manufacturing rights for in 1973, was still being built, bought, raced and enjoyed the world over, courtesy of Caterham. These days, although there is an ever-widening choice of chassis and engine options, the traditional narrow-bodied version of the car is still based on the Series 3 Lotus Seven. And, while few if any of the components are interchangeable between the Lotus and today's Caterhams, the Chapman-penned concept and general configuration remain unaltered and, though many times copied, has never beenbettered. Offered here is a stunning Caterham Super 7 Sprint finished in the great combination of Gloss Black with a black interior complimented by a Lotus Yellow speed stripe which pleasingly continues over the soft top. In the true spirit of the ' Seven' tradition, it's powered by a tuned Ford Kent engine bored to 1740cc and provides the most involving of driving experiences. Fully equipped for track or road it's fitted with an FIA cross-braced roll hoop and comes with Willans 3'' race belts, Compomotivealloys shod with Toyo R888 Proxes,and a plumbed-in 'Life Line' 2.25litre fire extinguisher system. The history file contains the Caterham Cars post-build inspection carried out by the first owner in North Yorkshire at the Auto Centre in Darlington and the check sheet confirms the same specification today. In total, this ballistic little car has been enjoyed by five owners prior to our vendor who purchased it in 2015 from the Millwood Motor Company. In 2007 the chassis was stripped, shot blasted and repainted by specialists Arch Motors together with all the suspension parts including the rear suspension and the rear axle which was upgraded to accept disc brakes. The Caterham was owned by a Worcestershire-based Seven enthusiast for an extended period during which time the engine was fully rebuilt by ex-Ford Boreham man, Alan Baker, with full photographic evidence on file. Since then the Super 7 has only covered approximately a thousand miles. The weather equipment includes a rapid-response Judd half-hood, a Caterham full hood, and later-type side-screens with elbow pockets. As can be seen from the accompanying photographs the car remains in immaculate condition and is one of the smartest examples we have ever seen.In addition to the post-build inspection report, the owner's file contains all the old MoTs from its first in 1999, corroborating the indicated mileage of 26,996, the original Owners Manual, and the Caterham Assembly Handbook. This versatile little car is MoT tested (September 2018), street friendly, and 'Speed Event' compliant. It's a proven fact that Caterhams still represent the most cost-effective way to enjoy true supercar performance, handling and braking making this exceptionally well-sorted Super Seven worth a detailed inspection.

2015 Lotus Elise 220 Cup

2015 Lotus Elise 220 Cup

Lot # 502 (Sale Order: 2 of 62)

The original, Toxic Green, Lotus press car Elise S Cup 220 (AU64 BZO) from the launch programExtensively featured in leading magazines (Evo, Autocar, Car) and onlineFitted with the Toyota-sourced, 217bhp, 184lb/ ft supercharged 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine from the Elise SAero package, comprising a front splitter, winglets, barge boards, rear wing, and diffuserOur vendor is the second owner after Lotus Cars. 5,500 miles. Two services. Immaculate The Lotus Elise S Cup is the road-going version of the S Cup R race car. Using parts from a mixture of fast Elise models, it features the sports suspension from the Club Racer and the Cup R's single rear exhaust and aero package, comprising a front splitter, winglets, barge boards, rear wing, and diffuser. In the interests of aerodynamics, it has an Exige-style fixed roof. The car is fitted with the supercharged 1.8-litre, Toyota-sourced, four-cylinder engine from the Elise S producing 217bhp, which when combined with the instant torque characteristics of a supercharged engine, results in some serious acceleration figures. All of this adds up to what is arguably the most serious road-going Elise ever.Offered here is the original Lotus Cars press car Elise S Cup 220 (AU64 BZO) that featured in the launch program and various magazine features gaining universal acclaim. Matt Prior of Autocar quoted, ''The Lotus Elise S Cup is a road-going version of a race car. You've probably heard that before, but this time it's true''. Lotus had got the balance absolutely right with a seriously quick car that could be used on the track but remained comfortable enough to be an everyday driver without the maintenance costs associated with supercars.Our vendor is this stunning Toxic Green Elise's second owner after Lotus Cars and it has only covered around 5,500 miles. The maintenance record details the first service in August 2015 with 5,401 miles indicated and it was serviced again in August 2017 having only covered an additional nineteen miles. The overall condition of this Elise is truly immaculate and even the exposed front splitter, barge boards, rear wing and diffuser appear unmarked. It also has the very nice option of air conditioning and has been fitted with a drivers-side full harness attached to the Lotus belts bar which is in addition to the standard production inertia-reel lap and diagonal belts which have been retained for going to the shops. Two new rear tyres will form part of the sale and are waiting for fitment at a Lotus dealer when required. It is due only its second MoT in September and the cherished registration number 'L1 RHE' will remain with the carThis is seriously competent, blisteringly quick little Lotus with a 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds that is equally at home on the track or road. Performance and economy don't come any better than this superb Lotus Elise S Cup 220.

1972 Lancia Fulvia Sport 1600 Zagato

1972 Lancia Fulvia Sport 1600 Zagato

Lot # 503 (Sale Order: 3 of 62)

An original, UK-supplied, 1972 Fulvia Zagato Sport 1600 from the final production run.The Sport1600 Zagato is the most desirable and collectable of all the FulviasFully restoredincluding body shell, retrimmed black leatherinterior, engine bay detailed to a show-standardRebuilt engine, new clutch, brakes, exhaust, steering, carburettor rebuild, and final set-up3 former owners from new. First being the DJ, David Jacobs. Original handbook, service book, and toolkit. The Lancia Fulvia was available in three distinct variants: Berlina four-door saloon, two-door coupé, and Sport, an alternative fastback coupé designed and built by Zagato on the coupé floor-pan. Introduced in 1967 with the 1,298cc (87bhp) engine, the Zagato was later offered with the 1600cc, 115bhp HF unit, a sparkling combination with a top speed approaching 120mph. A five-speed gearbox was standard equipment from 1971. Production ceased after Zagato had manufactured around 7,000 cars, a mere 800 of which were the ultimate 1600cc version. Lighter and nimbler than the standard-bodied cars, the Sport distinguished itself in competition, particularly in long distance events. Fulvia Sport Zagato's scored highly in the Sebring 12 Hours and Daytona 24 Hours (where a Sport earned a class win in 1969). Ex-works HF rally cars aside, the Sport Zagato is the most desirable and collectable of all the Fulvias and undeniably one of the most striking designs of its era.The 1600 engined Sport was distinguished by a matte black radiator grille with bright edges, black rubber over-riders on the bumpers, a matte black band on the engine bonnet, and new flush door handles. Inside,the 1600 had an oil temperature gauge, bucket seats with headrests and electric front windows as standard. Cromodora alloy wheels like those found on the 1600 HF were optional.Offered here is an original, UK-supplied, 1972 Fulvia Zagato Sport 1600 from the final production run. Of the 74 right-hand drive cars built, it is thought that less than 30 survive today and they are not often found for sale. It's in fully restored condition with exceptional panel and paintwork. The restoration included preparing the bodyshell for a full professional repaint in its original White, the interior retrimmed in black leather, the engine bay detailed to a show-standard, rebuilt engine, new clutch, brakes, exhaust, steering etc., Lastly, a carburettor rebuild and final set-up have just been completed at Omicron Engineering so driving and road manners are a delight and the MoT is valid until June 2019.This sparkling little Fulvia has an interesting history with only three former owners from new (the first owner being the broadcaster and DJ, David Jacobs), is matching numbers, and comes complete with its original handbook, service book, warranty card and toolkit.These period, coach-built motor cars are becoming more and more sought after and this rare example seems very reasonably guided considering the amount of time, money and love invested in it.

1959 MGA Twin Cam

1959 MGA Twin Cam

Lot # 504 (Sale Order: 4 of 62)

One of only 360 home-market, UK-supplied cars and still on its original registrationExtensive refurbishment in 2015 to 2016Supplied with a British Motor Industry Heritage Certificate and UK V5cA truly collectable and beautiful example of a Great British Classic Intended as a replacement for the traditional 'T'-Series MGs, the MGA combined a rigid chassis with the Austin-designed, 1,489cc B-Series engine that had first appeared in the ZA Magnette. Running gear was based on that of the TF, with independent, coil-sprung wishbone front suspension and a live rear axle. Dressed in a curvaceous aerodynamic body and capable of topping 95mph, the MGA proved an instant hit, selling over 13,000 in its first full year of production.Immensely popular though it was, the MGA faced stiff competition from the larger-engined Triumph TR3 and Austin-Healey 100/6. Coaxing more power from the standard engine was becoming increasingly difficult, so MG concentrated on developing a twin-overhead-camshaft cylinder head for the B-Series block. Conceived at Cowley by BMC engineer Gerald Palmer and introduced in 1958, the new 1,588cc engine did not disappoint. It featured a special light alloy cross-flow cylinder head with hemispherical combustion chambers and carried twin overhead camshafts with valve operation via Coventry Climax-style inverted bucket tappets, producing an impressive 108bhp at 6,700rpm. Considerably faster than the standard MGA, the Twin Cam could comfortably exceed 110mph, and to cope with the increased performance Dunlop disc brakes were fitted all round and Dunlop centre-lock wheels were a distinctive addition. The only other visual identifier was the script 'Twin Cam' near the vent aside the bonnet. A high price and an unjustified reputation for unreliability discouraged sales, however, and the model was dropped after just two years. Production totalled 2,111 cars, a mere 360 of which were sold on the home market, and today the Twin Cam is one of the most sought-after of post-war MG sports cars. This lovely MGA Twin cam is a rare matching numbers right-hand drive, home market example retaining its original registration number as confirmed by a copy of the original Buff Log Book. Manufactured on 22nd April 1959, XHL 866 underwent an extensive restoration during 2015 and 2016. The car was stripped, sandblasted and refinished in its original colour combination of Orient Red over black trim. The interior has been fully re-trimmed with red piping, and also features the original factory fitted steering wheel. Mechanically, particular attention was paid to the cylinder head, which included new valve guides and re-cut valve seats along with the fitting of unleaded valve seats. The engine was rebuilt to the original specification except for the addition of a Hi-Torque starter motor. The suspension and Dunlop braking system, with its unique brake master cylinder and all-around disc brakes, have been rebuilt and re-bushed.The history file includes a lovely photo of the car in period competing in what looks like a hill climb road event, along with invoices, and the all-important British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate confirming it as a matching numbers MGA Twin Cam and one of only 210 UK home-market, right-hand drive cars.MG As are fast becoming truly desirable collector cars, with the Twin Cam models top of the list. This charming home market, sympathetically restored example ticks all the boxes.

1990 Jaguar XJS HE - 840 Miles

1990 Jaguar XJS HE - 840 Miles

Lot # 505 (Sale Order: 5 of 62)

A remarkable find and only 840 miles from newDelivered by the Bristol Motor Company to its first owner on the 19th May 1990,Our vendor is the Jaguar's second owner. In his private collection since 2015Original books, manuals and service book are all present along with some previous MoTs.One for the 'true' collector, this is an opportunity not to be missed Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grand Tourer, rather than an out-and-out sports car like the preceding E-Type, the XJ-S made use of Jaguar's extensively developed XJ6/XJ12 saloon platform and running gear. Shorter in the wheelbase than its four-door siblings, the XJ-S debuted at the 1976 Frankfurt Motor Show as a V12-powered coupé, with six-cylinder and soft-top versions following in the 1980s, the expected ban on open cars having failed to materialise. One of the most important developments in the evolution of the V12-powered XJ-S was the introduction of the HE (High Efficiency) engine in 1981. Incorporating a new design of cylinder head, this more fuel-efficient unit enabling the top-of-the-range XJ-S to meet tighter worldwide emissions legislation. The long-lived XJ-S would go on to become Jaguar's best-selling sports car ever, with well in excess of 115,000 finding homes by the time production ceased in April 1996. Delivered by the Bristol Motor Company to its first owner on the 19th May 1990, this Jaguar XJS HE Automatic is a rare find indeed. Unique is a word frequently misused, however, in this case, it seems appropriate, as we can't believe there can be too many 28-year-old XJS' in this condition having covered just 840 miles from new! It's finished in Burgundy Metallic with a Cream leather interior piped in red and presents in the condition you would expect for the indicated mileage even retaining some of that distinctive new car smell.The original books, manuals and service book are all present along with some previous MoTs. Our vendor is the Jaguar's second owner and the car has formed part of his private collection since 2015, however, the time has now come for a new owner to acquire this amazing, 800 miles from new, time-warp example. One for the 'true' collector, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

1972 De Tomaso Pantera 'Pre-L'

1972 De Tomaso Pantera 'Pre-L'

Lot # 506 (Sale Order: 6 of 62)

A classic mix of Italian style and American muscle restored to a very high standard... Built in 1972, one of the final pre-Federal bumper Panteras, known as the 'Pre-L'Imported into New Zealand from California and restored between 1995 and 2013Acid-dipped shell resprayed in original Grabber Blue and refurbished Campagnolo wheelsThe Ford 5.8ltr V8 Cleveland engine, gearbox and the ZF transaxle were rebuiltThe car featured on the front page of a New Zealand Classic Car Magazine in 2016Presented to auction with a UK V5C, 82,000 miles on the odometer, and an MOT until October 2018 De Tomaso's replacement for their successful Mangusta in 1971 was the avant-garde and stylish Pantera. Retaining the best of the ingredients from the Mangusta, including the mid-mounted 300 horsepower Ford 351 cubic inch V8 Cleveland engine, five-speed ZF transaxle and dramatic styling, the Pantera also added monocoque construction into the mix.The cars sold well, with production running from 1971 through to the early 90s with various derivatives emerging from the factory, although it is the early cars that have that certain purity of line ensuring that they remain the most attractive and collectable.Stricter regulations introduced in the United States relating to crash-impact bumpers saw hideously large rubber bumpers being bolted on to all imported European cars, in almost all cases ruining the lines. Happily, this left-hand drive Pantera was built before the regulations were enforced and looks all the better for it.Found in California in a sorry state in the mid-1990s by classic car collector Chris Wilson of New Zealand, the car was gradually restored to an impressive standard for most of the ensuing decade. After an extensive search for the best metal-shop, Matama Panelworks were contracted to carefully disassemble the car and acid-dip the shell. After some minor correction to the metal work, the car was re-sprayed in its original colour of Grabber Blue. The engine was stripped, the cylinders were honed, a 650 Cfm dual-feed Holley carburettor was fitted along with custom Hall big-bore exhaust headers, and the engine was balanced to ensure smooth running at peak revs, before finally being mated to the rebuilt manual five-speed gearbox.The ZF transaxle was stripped and found to be in great order, requiring only gaskets and seals before reassembly. The suspension was fitted with new bushes and QA1 adjustable shock absorbers. The original dashboard and instruments were cleaned and polished and re-fitted. The vinyl seat coverings were replaced with leather, as were the door cards. Refurbished, period-correct, Campagnolo alloys were finally fitted, and the car presents today in absolutely superb order. To this consignor's eye, a Pantera purist may wish to re-attach the chrome bumper strips but the lines remain very clean without them. The car featured on the front cover, and in a multi-page write-up, in Issue 278 of New Zealand Classic Car Magazine in 2016, and the link below details the car's story and the photographs show the incredible depth of this superb restoration.Presented to auction with an odometer reading of 82,000 miles, largely immaterial in such a well-restored example, the car has a UK V5C under registration number JKH 613L and an MOT valid until October 2019. With the Pantera's contemporaries, the Countach and Ferrari 365 BB currently achieving huge sums, this car offers exotic Italian styling with true American grunt at a fraction of the price. The car is available for pre-sale viewing in Northampton.The Pantera is offered with an extensive list of original and new parts that include a rear boot tub, front and rear bumpers, four new Toyo Tires (front and rear), and some fifteen boxes containing other parts. A full list is available.To read the car's restoration story as featured in New Zeland Classic Car Magazine in 2016, please click on this link: http://www.themotorhood.com/themotorhood/2016/3/23/blue-pantherA special thank you and photocredit to Motorhood/New Zeland Classic Car Magazine.

The suspension was fitted with new bushes and QA1 adjustable shock absorbers. The original dashboard and instruments were cleaned and polished and re-fitted. The vinyl seat coverings were replaced with leather, as were the door cards. Refurbished, period-correct, Campagnolo alloys were finally fitted, and the car presents today in absolutely superb order. To this consignor's eye, a Pantera purist may wish to re-attach the chrome bumper strips but the lines remain very clean without them. The car featured on the front cover, and in a multi-page write-up, in Issue 278 of New Zealand Classic Car Magazine in 2016, and the link below details the car's story and the photographs show the incredible depth of this superb restoration.Presented to auction with an odometer reading of 82,000 miles, largely immaterial in such a well-restored example, the car has a UK V5C under registration number JKH 613L and an MOT valid until October 2019. With the Pantera's contemporaries, the Countach and Ferrari 365 BB currently achieving huge sums, this car offers exotic Italian styling with true American grunt at a fraction of the price. The car is available for pre-sale viewing in Northampton.The Pantera is offered with an extensive list of original and new parts that include a rear boot tub, front and rear bumpers, four new Toyo Tires (front and rear), and some fifteen boxes containing other parts. A full list is available.To read the car's restoration story as featured in New Zeland Classic Car Magazine in 2016, please click on this link: http://www.themotorhood.com/themotorhood/2016/3/23/blue-pantherA special thank you and photocredit to Motorhood/New Zeland Classic Car Magazine.

1984 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Sport Coupé

1984 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Sport Coupé

Lot # 508 (Sale Order: 8 of 62)

Sought-after early 3.2 C16 model55,746 verifiable miles with just two previous ownersUK 'Sport' model ordered from new without the rear spoilerBodywork restored in 2016, costing £8,000; recent Porsche service costing £3,000Complete Porsche book-pack, including service book, spare keys and tool-roll The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963. These final cars (before being replaced by the more complicated 964) were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design, arguably the purest incarnation of Porsche's sports car icon. The model was launched in 1984, reviving the 'Carrera' name for the first time since 1977, but the biggest change was hinted at in the new car's designation: a 3164cc flat-six which Porsche claimed was 80% new. Power was up to 231bhp with 209lb/ft of torque, making it the most powerful naturally aspirated 911 to date, enough to propel the lithe and slippery coupé to over 150 mph, with 0-60 mph coming up in 6.1 seconds. At a stroke, with performance nipping at the heels of the original 930 of 1974, the 'regular' 911 had gone from sports car to junior supercar! The car presented here is a UK-supplied (C16), right-hand drive 1984 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera 'Sport' Coupé. This, first-year-of-production, 3.2 is unusual in having had only two previous owners and has accrued just 55,746 genuine and verifiable miles. This is supported by an original stamped-up service book, signed letters between owners, an MoT history check, and a wealth of invoices and is, of course fully 'matching-numbers'.Silverstone Auctions have spoken to the original owner, a notable London music producer, who confirms that he ordered the car new as a 'Sport' model but specifically requested not to have the rear spoiler fitted as he thought it took away from the overall 911 aesthetic and preferred the more subtle profile. In August 1986, he sold the car to a doctor, giving him a signed letter confirming the deal. The doctor kept the car for the next 30 years subsequently, in July 2016, selling it to our vendor (again with a signed letter), who is his long-term friend and had known and admired the car since 1986.The car was delivered new on the 15th June 1986 through Malaya Garage Ltd. (Porsche) of Billinghurst to its original owner. He returned the car to their workshops for servicing at the correct intervals from 1,078 miles to 18,247 miles. The second owner was just as fastidious, ensuring that it was regularly serviced by Kent-based Porsche specialists 'Bianchi Porsche' and 'La Rose Porsche'up to 51,093 miles (when a new clutch was fitted). The car was then used infrequently (MoT November 2006 @ 51,601 miles – MoT November 2013 @ 55,327 miles) but was stored very well and regularly MoT'd. In 2014 it was decided to treat the car to a thorough bodywork recommission as, like most 1980's 911s, it was now in need of some attention to its sills and wings. The work was completed to a superb standard, ensuring wherever possible that originality was maintained. This bodywork and respray (in its correct Porsche colour) cost approx. £8,000. With this work completed, our vendor was able to purchase the car and he ensured it had a full mechanical recommissioning check and service in July 2016 (at 55,379 miles) at Official Porsche Centre of Tonbridge, costing almost £3,000. This lovely Porsche is finished in Slate Blue Metallic (code X6X6), complemented by a Black leather with Black Porsche (logo) Cloth inlays with Black Carpet – as per its accompanying Certificate of Authenticity. It is a standard UK 'Sport' model with forged Fuchs alloy wheels, Sport Shock absorbers, sports seats and a sunroof.This car has obviously been well-maintained and presents, both mechanically and cosmetically in excellent condition. It has never required any major mechanical work due to its regular servicing, low mileage and garage storage. Very few 1980's 911s have lived such a pampered life in the hands of so few owners, and the benefits are clear to see with this particular car. Small details like a full set of keys and immobiliser fobs (still on Malaya Garage keyrings), factory stickers still in situ, original dealer number-plates still fitted and a complete Porsche tool-roll (with original plastic gloves), jack and inflation kit, help support this dutiful ownership. This is a simply lovely genuine example of a Porsche model that is becoming increasingly sought-after.

2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed

2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed

Lot # 509 (Sale Order: 9 of 62)

Offered directly from the private collection of Sir Elton John.In Onyx Black with a superb Beluga Black interiorFull vehicle specification and customer selected options run to three A4 pagesJust over 21,000 miles in the hands of its two famous ownersTruly unique provenance and an exciting opportunity In 2010, the Bentley Continental GT saw its first significant redesign since its launch in 2003. Ushering in a suite of new models, this reinvention of the quintessential modern Bentley took the Continental's peerless craftsmanship, exquisite style and substantial power output and pushed it to an entirely new level. The redesign introduced new technology, greater efficiency, state-of-the-art materials, a sleek new silhouette, and a sportier feel.Among the second generation models, the Continental GT Speed was introduced in 2012 and was designed to embody the perfect balance between exquisite luxury and an exhilarating drive. In creating the GT Speed, Bentley's chassis engineers brought the car 10mm closer to the ground, laying the foundation for a sportier driving experience than that of the basic Continental GT.Equipped with the Mulliner Driving Specification as standard, it featured diamond quilted leather seats, indented leather headlining and embroidered winged 'B' emblems on the headrests. Drilled alloy pedals, a knurled sports gear lever, and the Jewel fuel filler cap recall Bentley's long racing heritage. With a peak output of 616 bhp, (slightly more than the McLaren F1 when it was first launched) the GT Speed is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds) and rocketing on to a top speed of 205 miles per hour.Silverstone Auctions are very proud to announce that this, right-hand drive, 2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed is being offered directly from Sir Elton John's private collection. Sir Elton Hercules John, CBE, is one of the most highly acclaimed and successful solo artists of all time. Across his five-decade career, he has achieved over 38 gold and 27 platinum or multi-platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and has sold more than 300 million records worldwide. He took delivery of the car in June 2014 and eventually passed it on to his husband, David Furnish, in April 2015 and it has been in his name ever since.The car itself is finished in Onyx Black and sits on (recently refurbished) 21” Speed Alloys with a Dark Tint finish. The interior hides, both primary and secondary, are in Beluga with Hotspur Red contrasting stitching, the carpets are also Beluga and there are Carbon Fibre fascia panels. Information regarding the full vehicle specification and the customer's selected options runs to three A4 pages and in the interest of brevity and privacy will not be detailed here, however, will be made available to genuinely interested parties.The Bentley has covered just over 21,000 miles in the hands of its two famous owners and naturally, the car is accompanied by a comprehensive service history, the details of which are in the owner's file with the service booklets which show various stamps from Bentley Berkshire and H.A Fox in Guildford.This very special car offers truly unique provenance and represents an exciting opportunity to own a W12 Bentley GT Speed that will always be distinguishable from similar cars in the future.

1977 Ford Escort RS2000

1977 Ford Escort RS2000

Lot # 510 (Sale Order: 10 of 62)

Genuine RS2000, matching numbers and just one registered keeper from newRecent ground up restoration including full engine and gearbox rebuildBare shell respray to a very high standard in the original colour, Signal YellowUnmarked black cloth interior with custom upgrades The RS (Rallye Sport) identity has been an important part of Ford's sporting image for a long time. Over the years, the Rallye Sport name has been applied to 19 spectacular road car models, which often proved their point by winning in races, rallies, in rallycross - and in the marketplace. The 'RS' badge has never been applied lightly, for each and every model and derivative has offered outstanding performance, road-holding, vehicle safety, and value for money. RS-badged Fords have always shared a proud sporting tradition and have been built in many different forms.When the Mkll Escort was launched, the RS name continued with the Cosworth-engined RS1800, produced in tiny numbers. More widespread Rallye Sport production was initiated with the RS2000 of 1976 which substituted the diva-ish Cosworth unit for a sturdier 2-litre inline four cylinder, SOHC, 'Pinto' engine, which was mounted longitudinally in the bay, and endowed the car with a 0-60 mph time of 8.5 seconds and a 108 mph top speed. The engineering prowess continued, with the gearbox bolted to the rear of the engine and power fed to the diff by a prop-shaft and then in turn to the rear wheels. A single twin venturi 32/36 DGAV Weber carb was fitted with the option of a 'Group 1' dual Weber 40 DCNF or IDF. The front suspension used independent MacPherson struts with an anti-roll bar and the rear suspension used leaf springs with telescopic dampers. Front mounted discs (solid) and rear drums were used and four-spoke alloy wheels came as standard.The RS2000 on offer today was built in 1977 and has been enjoyed by just one registered keeper from new. Finished in Signal Yellow with a Black interior, this genuine RS2000 has been restored to an extremely high standard of finish and was rebuilt to largely original specification. The shell was completely stripped, rebuilt to factory specification, and all mechanical components either refurbished or replaced. The suspension and brakes were all fully restored and the matching numbers engine was removed, totally rebuilt, and is still yet to be fully 'run in'. The rebuilt Type 9. five-speed gearbox was fitted and all fluids replaced. The result is a car that looks and performs as it would have done when it was delivered on 4th October 1977 through main dealer Lakeland Motors of Kendal to its single careful owner.Supplied with a UK V5C and fresh MoT, this is an amazing opportunity to purchase an exciting useable classic RS that needs for absolutely nothing other than an oil change after 500 miles running in.Contact us for further details and follow this link to see a short video clip;https://youtu.be/9ZbxqvoQ6FM

1982 Ferrari 400 GTi Manual

1982 Ferrari 400 GTi Manual

Lot # 511 (Sale Order: 11 of 62)

A rare manual gearbox, UK right-hand drive. GTi, one of only 25.The unusual Azzurro Metallic looks great with the beige/ light blue leather interiorRear air-con from new, an expensive option. Tools, jack and original book pack with service history52,275 miles. UK V5c & supplied with an MOT The 400GT was a larger-engined version of the 365GT4 2+2 that it replaced, and the 4823cc V12 power unit provided the new car with much-improved performance over its elder sister. With the arrival of the 400i in 1979, the Webers were replaced with Bosch 'K' Fuel Injection to improve emissions resulting in the output dropping substantially from 340bhp down to 305 bhp, however, some three years later, re-profiled camshafts restored around 5 bhp, bringing the output up to 310bhp. All Ferraris built in this period were costly, low-production machines, based on increasingly complex tubular chassis frames clad in hand-crafted body shells which had been styled by Pininfarina and were produced at the Scaglietti coachbuilding works in Modena.This 1982 Ferrari 400 GTi, one of only 25 manual UK-market, right-hand drive cars, was supplied through Emblem Sports cars on 9th November 1982 to its first owner, a Mrs A. Fournier of Poole, Dorset. Finished in a delightful shade of Azzurro Metallica with Beige/Sky Blue hide, the car was specified with Royal Blue carpets along with desirable rear air-conditioning - a £710 option from new! After a couple of years of ownership, the Ferrari was sold to a Mr J.D Lawrence who kept it until 2004 when it was purchased by a Mr J. Connell.During Mr Connell's ownership, around 2008/9, the car benefitted from a host of mechanical works undertaken by specialist Neal Lucas Sports Cars. This included a replacement fuel pump and fuel filters, inner/outer rear wheel bearings, rebuilding of the starter motor, a replacement clutch, a front hub assembly overhaul, replacement front brakes disc and pads, and most importantly, an engine overhaul which included replacement exhaust valves, a new head gasket, new timing chain, and new cam covers. Invoices from the aforementioned specialist total more than £15,000 for this work.The car is accompanied by its tools and jack, the original book pack containing the service history, numerous invoices and old MOTs, a UK V5c and will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT Certificate. The odometer currently reads just 52,275 miles. These four-seat, 400 Series Ferraris were essentially 'Grand Tourers' but with the five-speed manual box, 310bhp and 1,700kg they were no slouch, and a top speed of 150mph is within reach.Classic V12 Ferraris are becoming exceptionally difficult to source, particularly really good 400s, many having languished in a corner for years before being taken off the road, so well-maintained, quality cars are finding a ready market. This rare, manual gearbox car in a super colour with its distinctive interior is particularly desirable and is sure to find a good home.

1982 Ferrari 308 GTSi

1982 Ferrari 308 GTSi

Lot # 512 (Sale Order: 12 of 62)

UK-supplied, RHD, GTSi with just 11,663 miles and three former keepersFull Ferrari book-pack, tool-roll and original sales invoicesHistory file includes servicing bills, letters and photosUnrestored but in fine mechanical health; owned for 29 years by a pilot The 308 GTB, launched at the Paris Motor Show in 1975, was conceived as a direct replacement for the 246 Dino. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti, the man who styled some of the most iconic Ferraris including the Daytona, the new 308 had a rakish and attractive body which fused classic elements of Ferrari styling with a thoroughly modern design. Perhaps one of the most recognisable designs ever penned for Ferrari, the 308 was an instant hit and it came to define late 70's and early 80's sports cars.For the first two years of production, the body of the 308 was produced in fibreglass, before the decision was reached to change to steel. It shared a similar tube frame chassis to the original Dino and 308 GT4, with four-wheel, double wishbone, independent suspension and a transversely mounted 3-litre, four-cam, 90-degree, V8, with belt-driven twin overhead camshafts. The 'Targa' topped 308 GTS arrived in 1977 and was perhaps best known for its regular appearances on the television series 'Magnum, P.I'.Although Ferrari had used fuel injection in a number of their single-seater and sports racing cars, it had been considered too complex for use with road cars, however, as time went by, the technology improved until in 1979 fuel injection was introduced on the 400GT. Perhaps the ousting of Weber artistry was inevitable not only from an engine development point of view but also to help in meeting the increased demands of the legislators in a number of export markets. Whatever the reasons, it became Ferrari policy to introduce fuel injection on all production models. For the 308 in 1980, Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection was added and coupled to a Marelli MED 803A Digiplex electronic ignition system, incorporating a coil, distributor and ignition module for each bank of cylinders. These modified engines produced 211bhp, whilst the final drive was altered to give similar acceleration to a carburettor car, with the whole car weighing just under 1,300 kilos.The car presented here is a right-hand drive, UK-supplied 1982 Ferrari 308 GTSi, in the striking colour combination of Argento Silver with a Rosso Red leather interior. This special car has accrued just 11,663 genuine and verifiable miles, which is supported by an original stamped-up service book, signed letters between owners, an MoT history check, and a wealth of invoices and is, of course fully 'matching-numbers'. In addition, the car has changed hands only a few times, with HPI showing just 3 former keepers (the original owner registered it to his business at some point) over some 36 years. The car was delivered on the 25th June 1982 via H.R. Owen Ltd. (Ferrari) of South Kensington to its first owner Mr Hall, who bought it as a retirement present. Intriguingly, the car's history file still contains the original sale invoices and related paperwork between Maranello Concessionaires Ltd. and the Ferrari factory detailing the car's specification and options. It was ordered new with metallic paint, air-conditioning, 16'' alloy wheels and TRX tyres – plus £6 worth of petrol! It was routinely serviced by Ferrari up until approximately 6,000 miles. On the 1st November 1985, the car was bought by Mr Bradshaw, himself a retired long-serving British Airways aircraft Concorde pilot and engineer. He owned the car for the next 29 years, only covering just over 4,000 miles, but always ensured it was routinely serviced and garage-stored. In 2005 the car was entrusted to Ferrari specialists 'Talacrest' for a full service and cam-belt change with the mileage at 9,857. In November 2014 the car was sold to Mr Hutchinson, another Ferrari enthusiast, who ensured that it was fully serviced by Ferrari Specialists 'Rardley Motors', with the mileage at 11,097. Their engineers were very complimentary about the car, commenting that it was mechanically very sound and had obviously been treasured over the years.As you'd expect, this lovely Ferrari presents, both mechanically and cosmetically, in very good condition. It has never required any major mechanical work due to its regular servicing, low mileage and garage storage. Very few 1980's Ferraris have lived such a pampered life in the hands of so few owners, and the benefits are clear to see with this particular car. Small details like a complete Ferrari book-pack (in its original folder), a full set of keys, factory stickers still in situ, and a Ferrari tool-roll help support this dutiful ownership. This is a simply lovely genuine example of a Ferrari model that is becoming increasingly sought-after, with a, possibly unrepeatable, mileage,

One of 53 (one per dealer) and only 30,000 milesMost recent serviceat Hexagon Classics in late 2014 at 29,929 milesFour former keepers. In a private collection of significant classics since 2015Porsche C of A, impressive history file with all the books and manuals, and a fresh MoT First launched at the 1973 Paris Auto Show, with production commencing in 1975, the Porsche 911 '930' Turbo was a genuine Supercar that came to define both the 1970s and 80s and was one of the fastest production cars available at that time. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7RS with its capacity increased to 3.0 Litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gleaned from Porsche's 917/30 Can-Am programme. The bodywork came in for special treatment resulting in one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear 'whale-tail' and the brakes were borrowed directly from the Porsche 917 race car. At the end of production in 1989, Porsche decided to mark the occasion by creating a very special Limited Edition 930 - the ultimate Turbo. A small number of the last assembly batch of standard 3.3-litre, five-speed G50 gearbox cars were taken off the line and sent to the 'Exclusive' team at Zuffenhausen to be finished by hand. Here, the 53 cars (one for each UK Official Porsche Centre) were individually assembled incorporating a host of no-cost options, including colour-coded wheel centres, a top-tinted windscreen, and rear-quarter air intake ducts. What's more, any colour from the standard range could be used for the body, with colour-to-sample available at an extra cost.Inside, the choice was similarly expansive, with any combination of standard leather colours possible for the heated multi-adjust electric seats The use of leather extended to the handbrake gaiter, whilst the steering wheel was a three-spoke design, similar to the original 1974 car. Sitting at its centre was a gold Porsche crest, complemented by a similar emblem on top of the gear knob. The final touch was a gold plaque on the centre console highlighting the LE's place at the end of the Turbo's 15-year tenure as one of the most fearsome sports cars ever produced.According to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this very special 'C16' (UK-supplied) 5-speed, 911 Turbo LE was delivered on the 4th August 1989 and is finished in the striking combination of Metallic Baltic Blue with a full White Leather interior. The car has covered just over 30,000 miles in the hands of its four former keepers who, judging by its condition, have all been fastidious about looking after this rare car.Accompanying this 930 Turbo 'LE' is an impressive history file with all the relevant books and manuals present. The service book shows the most recent service was carried out by respected specialists, Hexagon Classics of North London, in late 2014 when the mileage was 29,929 and it has only covered a few miles since, having formed part of our vendor's significant private collection from 2015. Due to limited time and availability, our vendor feels that it's time someone else was able to enjoy ownership of the ultimate incarnation of the legendary 930 Turbo. The car will come to auction with a fresh MoT Certificate and is very sensibly guided considering its rarity and provenance.These last 53 Limited Edition, five-speed, cars are arguably the most collectable of the 21,589 Turbos built over the models 14-year life and this fabulous Baltic Blue example represents an exclusive and exhilarating ownership proposition.

The bodywork came in for special treatment resulting in one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear 'whale-tail' and the brakes were borrowed directly from the Porsche 917 race car. At the end of production in 1989, Porsche decided to mark the occasion by creating a very special Limited Edition 930 - the ultimate Turbo. A small number of the last assembly batch of standard 3.3-litre, five-speed G50 gearbox cars were taken off the line and sent to the 'Exclusive' team at Zuffenhausen to be finished by hand. Here, the 53 cars (one for each UK Official Porsche Centre) were individually assembled incorporating a host of no-cost options, including colour-coded wheel centres, a top-tinted windscreen, and rear-quarter air intake ducts. What's more, any colour from the standard range could be used for the body, with colour-to-sample available at an extra cost.Inside, the choice was similarly expansive, with any combination of standard leather colours possible for the heated multi-adjust electric seats The use of leather extended to the handbrake gaiter, whilst the steering wheel was a three-spoke design, similar to the original 1974 car. Sitting at its centre was a gold Porsche crest, complemented by a similar emblem on top of the gear knob. The final touch was a gold plaque on the centre console highlighting the LE's place at the end of the Turbo's 15-year tenure as one of the most fearsome sports cars ever produced.According to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this very special 'C16' (UK-supplied) 5-speed, 911 Turbo LE was delivered on the 4th August 1989 and is finished in the striking combination of Metallic Baltic Blue with a full White Leather interior. The car has covered just over 30,000 miles in the hands of its four former keepers who, judging by its condition, have all been fastidious about looking after this rare car.Accompanying this 930 Turbo 'LE' is an impressive history file with all the relevant books and manuals present. The service book shows the most recent service was carried out by respected specialists, Hexagon Classics of North London, in late 2014 when the mileage was 29,929 and it has only covered a few miles since, having formed part of our vendor's significant private collection from 2015. Due to limited time and availability, our vendor feels that it's time someone else was able to enjoy ownership of the ultimate incarnation of the legendary 930 Turbo. The car will come to auction with a fresh MoT Certificate and is very sensibly guided considering its rarity and provenance.These last 53 Limited Edition, five-speed, cars are arguably the most collectable of the 21,589 Turbos built over the models 14-year life and this fabulous Baltic Blue example represents an exclusive and exhilarating ownership proposition.

1992 Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II

1992 Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II

Lot # 515 (Sale Order: 15 of 62)

A stunning and rare Evo II with only 34,000 miles.Originally delivered new to Switzerland our UK based vendor is the car's fourth owner.Number 167/502 built and now showing only 55,000 km (34,200 m) from new.Serviced at Mercedes main dealer only 1,500 miles ago. Twenty-five years ago, the 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II thrilled professionals and the general public alike when it was unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show. Legend has it that all the limited run of 502 cars were sold pre-launch, possibly being squirrelled away by international car collectors. The bitter rivalry between BMW and Mercedes-Benz in saloon car racing throughout Europe helped hone the greatest 'touring cars' of the era and the Evo II was pitted against one of the best touring cars of all time, the E30 M3. Compromise was out of the question and the full-race car, developed for Group 'A' using this sports saloon as a basis, went on to acquire legendary status. Mercedes-Benz took the first three places in the DTM championship in the 1992 season with this vehicle, which was referred to succinctly as the "Evo II".The engine's output had been raised once again in comparison to the first Evolution model from the previous year, the Evo II now generating 235 horsepower. Top speed was 250 km/h, and the Evo II accelerated from a standing start to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds. The body had also undergone further refinement on an aesthetic and aerodynamic level and the car's sporting pedigree was emphasised by its muscular stance. The Evo II's body kit is perhaps the most outrageous ever applied to a production car, and the fact it was a product of the ultra-conservative world of early ninety's Mercedes-Benz is even more incredible. Its ostentatious, fully adjustable rear spoiler was aerodynamically perfect and the front splitter would make a decent job of cutting the grass, however, despite outward appearances, the Evo II is a comfortable and tractable daily driver. Registered new in Switzerland in 1991 this superb 2.5-16 EVO 2 began its charmed life in the hands of a Swiss owner bound by the highly restrictive speed limits of that country. Later on, it was acquired by the director of one of the leading Mercedes Benz dealerships in Holland where it became a showroom centre-piece clocking up very few miles each year. Ownership transferred to a Dutch enthusiast /collector in 2007 but alas his requirements to add funds to his growing business caused him to relinquish ownership to the cars fourth and current keeper, a British based car collector well known to Silverstone Auctions. On purchasing the car in 2011 our vendor drove it back from Amsterdam to the U.K. and during the trip, it's reported to have performed perfectly. Used in dry weather only since arriving in the U.K. and serviced at a Mercedes-Benz main dealership (meaning all services have been done by MB dealerships) the car has covered a mere 1,500 miles since its last service and now shows just under 34,000 miles (56,000 km) from new. This highly collectable and super-rare highly original Evolution 2 and is number 167 of 502 produced. Our vendor reports that it drives exactly as it should and there have been no MoT advisories at any time since it arrived in the U.K. Any fan of the legendary 'Group A' Touring Car era needs to see this car to truly appreciate both its condition and splendid collector status and we welcome any inspection.

1994 Ferrari 456 GT

1994 Ferrari 456 GT

Lot # 516 (Sale Order: 16 of 62)

An elegant 5.5-Litre V12-powered four-seat GT showing only 12,000kmDelivered new in Italy on the 16th April 1994 and remained there until 2017Partial respray and renewal of the dashboard leather in 2008 byMotor Service' in ModenaMajor service and MoT by Furlongers and a further £6,400 was spent in November of last yearItalian registration documents, all books and original tools, service invoices, V5c, and a fresh MoT Produced from 1992 until 2003, the Ferrari 456 and later 456 M are front-engined 'Grand Tourers' in true Ferrari tradition and were an overdue replacement for the outdated front-engined 412 which had been the company's premium four-seat V12 car for many years. The name '456' refers to the fact that each cylinder displaces 456 cubic centimetres and this was the last Ferrari to use this naming convention. Despite its supercar performance, 436bhp, 0-60mph in 5.2 secs, and a top speed of 188mph, the 456 has a relatively unstressed engine which has proven to be a very reliable unit. The model was warmly received by press and enthusiasts alike, and although not produced in large numbers, was always gently in demand by 'silver-haired' Ferrari owners before the 456M was eventually replaced in 2004 by the 612 Scaglietti.This rare and desirable, manual transmission, left-hand drive 456 was delivered new in Italy on the 16th April 1994 and remained there until last year when our private vendor registered the car here in the UK. Originally purchased by a company for the use of its director, it transitioned to that director from company ownership in 2008 and remained with him until four years ago. Over the course of its life, this 456 is reported to have been maintained by official Ferrari specialists 'Motor Service' in Modena, who were responsible for a partial respray and renewal of the leather covering on the dashboard in 2008.Since our vendor acquired the car in June of last year, he has sent it to renowned Ferrari specialists, Furlongers, who carried out a major service and MoT and a further £6,400 was spent in November of last year bringing the car up to a level to meet his exacting standards with invoices on file detailing the work carried out.Showing only 12,000 km (which cannot be warranted), this lovely Ferrari is accompanied by its Italian registration documents, all books and original tools, copies of the service invoices, the UK Registration documents, and a fresh MoT. These manual-gearbox 456 GT four-seaters are now getting the attention they have so long deserved, with the inevitable upward movement in values so, as they say in Italian, “Batti il Ferro quando è caldo” (Strike whilst the iron is hot).

1968 LR Roadsters D-Type by Realm (RAM)

1968 LR Roadsters D-Type by Realm (RAM)

Lot # 517 (Sale Order: 17 of 62)

A beautifully built fibreglass example of Jaguars Le Mans-winning D-typeOnly covered 1,000 miles since 2001, and just over 5,000 since being builtFinished in the famous Ecurie Ecosse Racing Team coloursEngine rebuilt by CKL Developments in 2017Supplied with a UK V5c stating 1968. Large history file Realm Engineering of Honeybourne in Worcestershire has built up a fine reputation over almost four decades for its "RAM" recreations. In particular their Jaguar D-types, which benefitted from considerable design input by Reynard Racing into the chassis, resulting in greater strength and ultimately better road-holding. After a three-hour stint behind the wheel of a Realm D-Type, Sir Jack Brabham commented: "That's a damn sight better than the original!" Richard Noble has one of his own, and Sir Stirling Moss OBE said: "You guys have done an excellent job here, you should be proud." Jaguar Quarterly magazine described the car as "impressive" with handling "beyond question" and "a whole bucketload of fun".This, 'Long-Nose' example, of Jaguar's legendary Le Mans-winning D-Type features glass fibre bodywork and was built in South Africa by Darryl Simpson, from a kit supplied by LR Roadsters between 1988-90. The attention to detail is remarkable. Our vendor purchased this 'RAM' in 2001 whilst racing in South Africa after being impressed with its build quality and then brought it back to the UK that year, where it has resided in his significant collection ever since. Having only covered around 1,000 miles in his ownership, and reportedly just over 5,000 miles in total since it was built, this car has clearly enjoyed the love and attention it deserves. It's finished in 'Ecurie Ecosse' Scottish Racing Blue and wears twin white nose stripes similar to the 1956 works D-Type (XKD 603) driven to second place at Le Mans in 1957 by Ron Flockhart and John Lawrence. Our vendor recently sent the car to one of the countries foremost historic restoration companies, 'CKL Developments' in Hastings, who rebuilt the 4.5-litre Ron Beatty/ Forward Engineering 300/330bhp engine earlier this year.Supplied with a 1968 identity on its UK V5C, a history file with pictures of the build, I.D. documents, and various invoices, this very special RAM 'Long Nose' is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner and elegantly pays homage to one of the greatest British sports cars of all time.

1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 4.2 FHC - 'Barn Find'

1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 4.2 FHC - 'Barn Find'

Lot # 518 (Sale Order: 18 of 62)

One of the rarest E-Types - 1 of just 375 Series 1.5 RHD, Fixed Head Coupés producedA genuine 'barn-find', lost to the world for circa 40 yearsPotentially a 'matching-numbers' example with only a few ownersMostly complete and with some historic MoTs and invoicesOffered for sale at 'No Reserve' – a real opportunity to acquire the ideal project car The Series 1 E-Type (as it has subsequently become known) was introduced, initially for export only, in March 1961 using the triple SU carburetted, 3.8-litre, six-cylinder XK engine from the XK150S. The car continued to be developed over time with the first major changes arriving in 1964 including an increase in capacity to 4.2-litres. There was never a fixed specification or official designation for this interim model, although, with the arrival of the, officially named 'Series 2', the early cars became Series 1s and the interim cars, logically, Series 1.5. These cars can be recognised by their open headlights, small 'mouth' air intake, the exhaust tips under the number plate at the rear, and the tail lights and indicators above the bumpers. It is undoubtedly one of the rarest of the E-Type variations, with there believed to have been just 375 right-hand drive Fixed Head Coupés examples produced. Enthusiasts claim that it is the best driving and most nimble derivative, and the 4.2-litre engine and all-synchromesh gearbox offered increased power and usability whilst retaining the fabulous looks of the earlier cars. Naturally there are enthusiasts for every iteration of E-Type from the early, flat-floor, Moss-gearbox, skinny-seat cars to the voluptuous and voluminous, V12 Series 3, however, those folk that really know, suggest that a 1.5 well maintained and properly set up would probably represent the ultimate.The car presented here is potentially something quite special. It's a right-hand drive, 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 Fixed Head Coupé, with a chassis number allocation of 1E21920, which falls exactly into the prescribed database range of 1E21584 – 1E21959 consistent for a S1.5 RHD Fixed Head Coupé. The number 1E21920 appears to be stamped properly/consistently/reliably on its wholly original-looking chassis plate (found on the offside facing outward near the bulk-head under the bonnet) and, upon careful inspection, this same chassis number can be made out stamped into the correct location on the front A-frame. Furthermore, its engine number stamping of 7E18183-9 can also be seen in the correct location on the engine, making it again consistent with the numbers stamped on the chassis plate and the details held by the DVLA. It is unknown about the gear box number at this stage, and enquiries are being made with Jaguar as to a Heritage Certificate and its original factory specification. However, given the history of this particular car, it is highly likely to be a matching-numbers example.From the accompanying paperwork, the car appears to have been previously registered 'HFF 879G', as per an MoT Certificate dated November 1972, with a recorded mileage of 17,268. At this time the car was believed to have been owned by Mr Sutherland of Knutsford, with accompanying invoices for work done to the car made out to him. An MoT Certificate from June 1976 is officially stamped to show the registration number changed to 'LTU 77G', with the recorded mileage of 55,760. At this point, the car was sold to Mr David Sparks of Buckley in Flintshire, with an invoice for work carried out made out to him in June 1977, with the recorded mileage at 79,046. The story goes that in the late 1970s the car was put into a garage and over time some additional garaging was built in front of the one housing the E-Type making access to it very difficult. Remarkably, the car did not see daylight again until March 2018, after the widow of the owner wanted it moved out, whereby it had to be towed over the grass and through the new garaging. The mileage indicated now is 5,735, which is most likely 105,735. Discovered in the car's glovebox was a ticket for the car-park at Manchester International Airport dated October 1977 – how very 'jet-set' and what you'd expect from an E-Type owner in the 1970s.The Jaguar now obviously requires a full restoration, but is potentially the ideal candidate for such a project being such a rare Series 1.5 in right-hand drive, and potentially a matching-numbers example which has changed hands only a few times, but shows 0 (zero) former keepers with HPI.It seems fairly complete and original, but any interested party would need to satisfy themselves of this and its overall condition, particularly the mechanical condition which is unknown.This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire such an iconic car, which could be brought back to life to a new owner's personal specification, being offered for sale with 'No Reserve'. Following some recent results, this car is surely worthy of consideration.

1947 Lancia Aprilia Pininfarina Convertible

1947 Lancia Aprilia Pininfarina Convertible

Lot # 519 (Sale Order: 19 of 62)

Built on a Type 439 chassis, this supremely elegant Cabriolet is one of ten clothed by Batista FarinaRHD from new and powered by a narrow-angle V4 of 1486cc, a very advanced design, unique at the timeIt spent most of its life in Switzerland where it was purchased by Jean Pierre Baumgartner, a world authority on Lancias of this periodThen subject to a five-year restoration (two years on the body alone) by the top Lancia experts in EuropeThe car remains in superb, post-restoration condition and we welcome any inspection#439-11854 is a significant motor car and probably the finest example of Pinin Farina's post-war CabrioletsOffered to the market for the first time ever. A once in a lifetime opportunity The Lancia Aprilia Berline was introduced in 1937 and was the last Lancia to have Vincenzo Lancia's input before his death. The engine was a narrow-angled V4 1300cc unit (one cylinder head) and sliding pillar front suspension was carried on from previous models. The rear suspension was by trailing arm with a transverse leaf spring mounted onto the rear differential. Brakes were hydraulic front and rear drums with the rears being inboard. The original Berline bodyshell was a monocoque construction with a pillarless, front and rear door opening. All very advanced and all of which made the car a revelation in its day.After the war, Lancia resumed production of the small car, continuing until 1949. Special designs were built on these cars by such legendary coachbuilders as Zagato, Carrozzeria Touring, Bertone and Vignale but, it is generally agreed that the most beautiful ever built is the Pinin Farina 'Speciale Cabriolet'.Carrozzeria Pinin Farina was founded in 1930 by Batista 'Pinin' Farina.havingbroken away from his brother's company, Stabilimenti Farina.Laterly, best known for their tie-up with Ferrari, Pinin Farina was initially helped in the early days with financial backing from Vincenzo Lancia so it's no surprise that there has always been a strong connection between the two companies. Their engagement with the Aprilia began from the model's introduction and. before the war, they built bespoke Aprilias for road and competition use, as well as two-door cabriolets and four-light and six-light Berlinas, which were offered in the factory catalogue. Remarkably, although late-war production was greatly reduced by Allied bombing, Aprilia production continued throughout the conflict. As a result, when Aprilia chassis number 439-11844 was delivered to Pinin Farina in 1946, the Carrozzeria was intimately familiar with the model and its design potential.In the pre-war and immediate post-war years, most coachbuilders designed cars with long bonnets, due to the length of the engine, however, with the compact Lancia 1482cc V4, Pinin Farina was able to build the new car with a shorter nose, enabling a more centrally positioned passenger compartment and slender, elegant rear styling. It was clothed in cabriolet coachwork and fitted with two seats plus rear jump seats. The driver and passenger face a dashboard colour-matched to the body and filled with unique Pinin Farina gauges and styling touches. It's a masterpiece in Bakelite and chrome. It is, however, the cabriolet's exterior that sets it apart – a remarkable exercise in sculpted panels and distinctive details. With the lines of the windshield pillar and side window extending into the door cuts, it is as beautiful with the top up as with it down. With its smart brightwork, radiused wheel arches, and subtle modelling, the design established Pinin Farina's post-war direction for years to come.After the end of the Second World War, car manufacturers were changing over from wartime obligations to the production of, much-needed, motor cars. Plans that had been shelved for years were dusted off and 'show cars' were produced for the 33rd Salon de l'Automobile de Paris in October 1946. Most of the cars brought to the show were utilitarian pre-war designs, however, after an eight-year hiatus, the auto show nevertheless generated significant excitement. Twice as many people attended (809,000)ashad in 1938. Lines of people stretched from the main gate all the way to the Seine. Two things were missing, however, as car makers from Germany and Italy were banned from the show that year (so was Japan, but that wasn't considered to be significant).Gian Battista “Pinin” Farina was not a man to be dictated to and he had two cars that he fully intended to bring to the show – ban or not! With his 20-year old son Sergio, and accompanied by a couple of family friends, the group set off from Turin for the drive to Paris. Gian Battista drove the Lancia Aprilia Cabriolet and Sergio took the wheel of an Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Speciale. They stopped at a local garage, cleaned up the cars and set off to display the new creations.

1972 Maserati Ghibli 4.7 Coupe

1972 Maserati Ghibli 4.7 Coupe

Lot # 520 (Sale Order: 20 of 62)

A rare, right-hand drive, automatic, 1972 Ghibli with reportedly only 9,500 miles from newRecipient of a full bare-metal respray and in generally fantastic condition throughout.Accompanied by a very impressive history file and recently fully serviced by McGrath MaseratiSuperbly finished in gleaming Graphite Grey with fabulous Tobacco hide There is certainly no disputing its tremendous impact. By any standard, the Ghibli was the most memorable Maserati of its time. More than four decades after its late-1966 debut, there are those who say it still is and, as road tests at the time proved, it was also a real performer. But for many, it was enough to simply gaze upon this vision in steel in abject admiration. It had been conceived in 1965-66 by Giorgetto Giugiaro, who was then Head of Design at Ghia, so it was no wonder that the world's motoring press sat up and took real notice of this remarkably gifted young Italian. Lines flow seamlessly from nose to tail, the proportions are perfect, and the result is a grand tourer of classical beauty. Even the bonnet line has been kept remarkably low and sleek, with the smallest of clearance bulges, the whole thing is a masterclass in car styling.The car's underpinnings, however, were a bit more mundane sharing its basic chassis and running gear with the Quattroporte saloon and Mexico coupe although, having been designed as a two-seater GT, the wheelbase was reduced by 3.5 inches from the Mexico's. The chassis was tubular, stiffened by pressings, foldings, and fabrications, and it had to make do with a simple live rear axle on semi-elliptic leaf springs, however, like the Mexico it could boast disc brakes all-round. If none of this seemed very exciting, particularly next to its obvious competitors like the Ferrari 275 GTB and Lamborghini 400 GT, nobody seemed to mind, and it didn't hurt the car's performance or reliability one bit. Power came from 4719cc, DOHC V8, fuelled by 4 42DCNF/9 Webers and producing 306bhp. The standard transmission was a ZF five-speed unit but an automatic gearbox was available to special order.Alas, all good things must come to an end. The Maserati Ghibli's demise came in 1973 with the introduction of its direct successor, the Khamsin which, whilsttechnically more advanced, wasn't nearly as inspiring to look at. 1,274 Ghiblis were built in total but, sadly, there still aren't enough to go around.Finished in the stunning combination of Graphite Grey with Tobacco hide, this, very rare, low mileage, right-hand drive, Maserati Ghibli is fitted with an automatic gearbox and air conditioning. We understand the car has only covered 9,500 miles and is accompanied by a very impressive history file showing that it has clearly been very well maintained by its loving owners. In more recent years the decision was taken to take it back to bare metal and coat those long, lean flanks with some fresh paint and the results are spectacular. It has recently enjoyed some time at respected specialists McGrath Maserati and has been brought up to our vendor's exacting standards in exchange for around £12,000.Offered with the aforementioned history file containing details of the work carried out over the years by notable specialists, Silverstone Auctions are very proud to offer this wonderful example of Italian exotica and we welcome any pre-sale inspection.

Lot # 522 (Sale Order: 22 of 62)

Finished in the original colours of Silver Pearl over black leatheretteAccompanied by its original service book, owner's manual, and brochureFully resprayed, retrimmed front seats, rebuilt engine, new chrome - fabulousSupplied with a NOVA reference number to begin UK registration process Now in its sixth generation, the Corvette began life in 1953 with the C1 - a model that inspired a generation of young Americans and gave the Ford empire a nine-year headache. However it was the C2, the immortal Stingray produced between 1963 and 1967, that really set Chevrolet's cash registers ringing and left us with the most desired and collectable Corvette to date. Designed by Larry Shinoda under the guidance of the legendary Bill Mitchell, influences on the Sting Ray's unique and unforgettable form are said to include: the E-type Jaguar, a Mako shark once caught by Mitchell, the 'Q Corvette' concept car of 1957 and the 'Mitchell Sting Ray'. By the autumn of 1959 elements of the two unique Corvettes had been built into XP-720 - the design programme that led to the production of the Sting Ray as we know it.This particular left-hand drive example was sold new to its first owner, a Mr J. W. Allen of Virginia Beach, Virginia, through Colonial Chevrolet Corp, Norfolk, Virginia on 8th April 1966 as recorded in the cars original service book that is included in the file.

The result of all this hard work is a sharp looking Corvette that is ready to grace the roads once again.Supplied with a NOVA reference number for the buyer to begin the UK registration process with the DVLA, the sale of this Corvette includes its North Carolina Certificate of Title, an original brochure, its original books including the owner's manual, service book and accessories booklet, and even the original Colonial Chevrolet Corporation key fob remains!Fire up the car and you are greeted by the 'woofle' that only a V8 can produce, which will almost certainly put a smile on your face as you picture yourself burbling down your local High Street in a '66 Corvette.

1989 Porsche 911 3.2 Speedster 'Turbo Body'

Lot # 523 (Sale Order: 23 of 62)

Guards Red with Tan and one of only 64 UK-supplied (C16) cars producedA wide-body Turbo 'look' car with electrically adjustable sports seatsRecent £4,500 service at Porsche NottinghamSupplied with a UK V5c, MOT, toolkit, and tyre compressor The 911 "Speedster" was introduced in 1989 by Porsche to reflect the timeless design of their original 356 Speedster from the late 1950s. Design cues included the instantly recognisable raked aluminium windscreen, 3 inches lower than the standard car, combined with the 'double hump' clamshell fibreglass tonneau cover.The model was based upon the 3.2 Carrera with its later G50 gearbox, 911 Turbo wide-body and chassis, upgraded Turbo-spec brakes and suspension, combined with the normally aspirated 3.2, flat-6 Carrera engine producing 231bhp. This resulted in an outstanding driving experience which was limited to the 139 right-hand drive, Turbo-bodied Speedsters ever produced.Offered here is a UK-supplied (C16) right-hand drive Porsche 911 3.2 Speedster Turbo Body first registered on 1st August 1989.

Although the 17,489 miles on the odometer cannot be warranted, we believe that it is likely to be correct and is commensurate with the condition of the car. Our vendor has had a paint meter on the car and comments that it is almost certainly in its original paint.Most recently, the car has been fitted with a new clutch and fully serviced at Porsche Nottingham, generating an invoice for £4,629. A bookpack containing the driver's manual is present, but unfortunately no service book.Supplied with a UK V5c, an MOT until January 2019, its jack, tools and air-compressor this rare right-hand drive Speedster is in remarkable condition for its age and presents an opportunity for the next owner to go on and enjoy this rare car whilst building a new service history.

1965 Ford Lotus Cortina Mk.I

1965 Ford Lotus Cortina Mk.I

Lot # 524 (Sale Order: 24 of 62)

An early airflow 'A-frame' Lotus Cortina Mk.IEngine and carburettor rebuild in 2013Supplied with a large history fileStill on its original registration 'FLL 796C' The engine that would ultimately power the legendary Lotus Cortina began its life in 1961 when Colin Chapman commissioned a twin-cam version of the Ford Kent unit and bored it out to give 1,558cc. Whilst it was still being developed, Ford asked Chapman to fit the engine to 1,000 Ford saloons for Group 2 'Homologation'.Chapman accepted the challenge and the Ford Lotus Cortina was born. Ford supplied the bodyshells, whilst Lotus handled the mechanical and cosmetic changes. The model was to dominate saloon car racing for the Ford factory as it evolved throughout the 1960s and was driven by many stars of the day, including the legendary Jim Clark. In the February 1963 Motor Sport magazine editor, Bill Boddy said: "the modifications carried out by Lotus have turned the Cortina into a 'Q' car par excellence". In total, approximately 3,000 Lotus Cortinas were manufactured.We are pleased to offer this particular Ford Lotus Cortina Mk. I first registered on 29th of September 1965. The model itself is a Type II airflow car with A-frame rear suspension making it hugely desirable. The car is presented in the classic colour combination of Ermine White with a Sherwood Green stripe and appears to be in very good order.The history file documents a period from 2009 – 2011 whereby the car was the recipient of some bodywork repairs and fresh paint done by specialists, Keiran Boyle andCouston Classics in Scotland. In 2013 Brayon Classic Engineering of Argyll & Bute carried out works to the engine which included;Removal of the engine & re-facing both the cylinder block and headCleaning out of all oil galleries on the block, head, crank & rodsRemoval of old paint on the cylinder block and repaintingRebuilding the cylinder head with new valves & springsInstalling new pistons and con rodsRebuild carburettors and set upAn invoice totalling £2,933 is included in the file and documents the full extent of the work. Since this time we believe the car has seen little use as it remains in super condition both on the exterior and underneath. Most recently it has been serviced and fettled at a well-respected Ferrari restorer and specialist.Supplied with a folder packed with invoices, pictures on CD, newspaper articles in which the car has featured, copies of old registration documents and its current UK V5c, this Lotus Cortina has been well-cherished by its current owner and it is offered for sale for the first time in 8 years. These Lotus Cortina's epitomised the new-found freedom of the 1960's and cemented themselves as real driver's cars – still wearing its original registration number 'FLL 795C', this is one not to be missed.

1991 Porsche 928 GT

1991 Porsche 928 GT

Lot # 525 (Sale Order: 25 of 62)

A collector'squality 928GT that has just been freshly recommissioned.Right-hand drive, manual gearbox car in a rare colour combinationSix owners, 63,000 miles and a comprehensive history. Porsche Cof AThe restoration appears to have been thorough and fastidiousYou might struggle to find a better one 1989 saw further development in the story of Porsche's 928 with the launch of the GT featuring a more powerful 5.0-litre V8 capable of a creamy 326bhp, but more importantly, the introduction of a 5-speed manual gearbox for those who wanted a more sporty driving experience. The GT also sported twin exhausts, uprated camshafts, and sports suspension - the ultimate 928 had arrived!We are delighted to be able to offer this very special, right-hand drive, 928GT. Having been enjoyed by five previous owners the Porsche had spent the last five years in storage before our vendor purchased it with the intention of recommissioning the car fully. It was a perfect candidate for that as it appeared unmodified and entirely unmolested. Being a late 1992 car, it is one of the last GTs off the production line and had only covered 63k miles from new corroborated by a thick wallet of documents detailing the full service history and almost all the old MoTs displaying the yearly mileage. It is unusual being finished in black with a two-tone light grey interior, a combination we understand is quite rare.The body was stripped and all surface defects remedied including replacing the rear sill sections which were beyond saving. The car was then treated to a glass-out, bare metal respray in its original non-metallic black. The finish is flawless and no other colour highlights the curves of a 928 better. Before any items were refitted, all cavities were treated to copious amounts of Dinotrol Cavity wax and all exposed metal on the underside of the car was treated to fresh anti-stone chip sealant. New window rubbers were also fitted as part of the refit.The interior was completely stripped out and new carpets were fitted throughout using the original factory Sliverknit material. Due to the low mileage, the leather had no serious wear so it was intensively cleaned followed by high-quality leather conditioners. The steering wheel was restitched using factory original thread and given the same intensive cleaning process as the rest of the leather. The gear-lever gaiter was also given the same treatment. The original speakers have all been replaced with similar sized units which include the three-way rear speakers. Whilst the interior was out, all the vacuum actuators were inspected and tested as fully functional. A Blaupunkt Essen head unit has been fitted which looks fantastic and is period-correct.Every single fluid in the car has been replaced, engine, coolant, transaxle, brakes, clutch and PSD. It has just had a new cambelt and tensioner fitted, the engine mounts have been replaced with new hydraulic units, and all drive belts have been replaced. The car has new front and rear discs and pads and the rear callipers have had the notorious steel plates replaced. The gearbox has been rebuilt with new seals, gaskets and 2nd and 3rd synchros which were probably damaged whilst the clutch master cylinder was failing, which was also replaced. All front-to-rear fuel pipes have been replaced. A new AC condenser and new dryer unit have also been fitted along with new seals. The AC pump was removed, drained of old oil, and refilled with the correct PAG46 oil along with new seals. The four D90 alloy wheels are completely unmarked and sit on correct Continental N1 tyres that have minimal wear. Numerous other new parts have been replaced on the Porsche, far too many to detail here but all are documented in the car's history file. In the same file can be found the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a fresh MoT with no advisories.The last word comes from our vendor who tells us that “This car drives like a factory fresh GT should. I have driven many 928's (I also own a 1991 GT) and this one by far, is the smoothest, quietest and most solid example I have ever driven. Every single thing on the car works as it should, even the AC blows icy-cold”This is a right-hand drive, manual gearbox, Porsche Grand Tourer in a rare colour, fresh from an exacting rebuild. The day of the 928 is here and you might struggle to find a better one.
