This is the ultimate version of the proper old school 911 Turbo with 3,3 litre engine. In 964 guise, this Turbo looks already more sophisticated but it is still a real brute on the road with impressive performance. The example we are offering was delivered new in Verona (Italy) in 1991. It only had 4 owners, and is mainly in its first paint and absolutely accident free. The car was ordered in the tasteful colour combination of Nachtblau with full leather interior in black. It comes with full Porsche service history, and has a reasonably low mileage for a 25 years old Porsche. All tools and books are present as well. It is a lovely example and rare to find in this condition. The 964 Turbo 3.3 is a rather rare Porsche, with only 3660 examples made. It is one of the most spectacular versions of the original 911 and in my opinion also one of the most beautiful. This example ticks all the right boxes : low mileage, great colour combination, full service history, rarity and incredibly fast. Now ready for a new lucky owner.
A good example of the desirable Jaguar E-type Series 1 3,8 Litre is increasingly difficult to find. This model is the most sought after version, due to its pure design with the beautiful aluminium dashboard panels and good looking bucket seats. This example was sold new in France in 1963, and remained with the first owner until 2008. This Parisian medicine covered a mere 71.600 kilometres with the car from new. He had it repainted in white in 1971, and the car was mechanically restored in 2003. The actual owner bought the car in an auction in 2008, and had the car completely restored. It was then repainted in its original colour Opalescent Silver Grey, and the interior as retrimmed in tan hide. The engine was overhauled again, and suspension and brakes were rebuilt. It sits now on slightly wider 6x15 wheels with Avon CR6ZZ road tyres, and it looks absolutely fantastic. It is of course a matching nrs european specification E-Type, which makes it very desireable. The car has now only 72.170 km on the clocks, which is quite remarkable for a 53 years old Jaguar. The Jaguar E-Type in its purest form is a gorgeous sportscar, and even Enzo Ferrari called it the most beautiful car in the w
In 1993 Ferrari launched the 348 Challenge racing series in Europe, a single series gentlemans cup. These cars were standard specification 348's, converted to Challenge spec by an official Ferrari dealer. The factory supplied a Challenge kit, which took 110 working hours to install. This kit included a full OMP rollcage, racing seats and harnesses. Also a fire extinguisher, additional cooling ducts for front and rear brakes, and 18" Speedline magnesium wheels were fitted. The ECU was upgraded to allow 7800 rpm and to deliver 320 bhp, and a lower gearing for 1st and 2nd gear was installed. It was a proper race car, with improved brakes and stiffened and lowered suspension. The example we have now on offer is quite a well known one. Delivered new by Garage Auvergne Moteurs, official Ferrari dealer in Beaumont (France), and immediately converted to Challenge specification for the first owner Mr. Christian Heinkele. He raced the car in the West Series of the 348 Challenge championship during three years, and with good results. In the first year (1993), Mr. Heinkele finished 11th, in 1994 he finished 5th and finally in 1995 he won the championship with his 348. After him, two successive
The Honda NSX was the first production car to feature an all-aluminium semi monocoque body, with revolutionary extruded aluminium frame and suspension components. Honda succeeded to save nearly 220 kg in weight compared to an all-steel version. Other firsts were the fitting of an electronic throttle control and the VTEC variable valve timing system. Honda aimed the car at the Ferrari 328 and 348, but included reliability and a lower price. Development of the car took many years, and included lots of input from Ayrton Senna and Satoru Nakajima. Senna was mainly involved in the suspension tuning and handling, and it must be said that the NSX is an easy to handle sportscar with incredible performance. It is also very user-friendly with easy access and offers ample interior and boot space. The 3,0 Litre VTEC offers 270 bhp, with a rev limiter which only cuts in at 8000 rpm. This car has proper F1 technology from the nineties, and was very advanced at the time. This lovely example was delivered new in Italy, and comes with good service history. It's still in its first paint, and in the only colour combination available at launch of red with black leather seats. The car is just completel
Renault launched the R5 Turbo at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1980. It was their response to the rally successes of the mid-engined Lancia Stratos, and while the car was primarily designed for competition also a road version was available for homologation purposes. Originally it was the plan to produce 440 examples, but the car received many positive reactions so Renault built the car until 1986 and sold 1820 examples of the 1st series 5 Turbo and 3167 units of the later Turbo 2 version. The mid-engined R5 Turbo was a real pocket rocket. The turbocharged 1397 cc "Cléon-Fonte" engine produced 160 bhp in road guise, and propelled this 960 kg lightweight car in less then 7 seconds past the 100 km/h barrier. This was very impressive in the beginning of the eighties, and a fantastic base to develop the car further into the succesful rallycar it would become. The original first series R5 Turbo had an aluminium roof and doors, and a slightly different interior, while the later R5 Turbo 2 got a steel roof and doors and a dashboard similar to the front wheel driven R5 Alpine Turbo. The real advantage of these productions changes was that the build quality became improved, and the Turb
The first production Mustang rolled off the production line on the 9th March of 1964. It was advertised as "the car to be designed by you", and therefore had a range of interior, exterior and drivetrain options. Buyers had the choice between coupé, convertible and in a later stage fastback body, and different interior options, some of which included front bucket or bench seat, rear bench seat, a sports car style steering wheel and a floor mounted gearshift. Enginewise, there was a choice between a 6-cilinder 170ci (101 bhp), a 260ci V8 (164 bhp), a two barrel 289ci V8 (210 bhp) and from June 1964 on also a 4-barrel V8 offering 271 bhp. The Mustang was an instant success, and after the first production year 418.000 examples were sold ! This very early example is a 289ci V8 car with manual gearbox. It was delivered in April 1964 in California, in the fantastic colour combination of Prairie Bronze with a Palomino vinyl interior. The first Mustang was introduced in April 1964 by Lee Iacocca in exactly the same colours, and it must be said it looks absolutely stunning. The car had the manual 4-speed gearbox, and the first owner specified some very interesting options like a power conver
The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette was a completely new design, and had nothing to do with the previous versions. It came with independent rear suspension, and a range of 327 ci. V8 engines offering from 250 bhp up to 360 bhp for the fuel injected version. The car was available with 3-speed and 4-speed manual gearboxes, and of course a powerglide automatic gearbox. Two body versions were available : a coupé version with the (MY1963 only) split rear window and a roadster version. Total production for MY1963 was 21.513 units (10.594 Coupés, 10.919 Convertibles), which makes it quite a rare car. This example was imported from California in 2010 in restored condition. It is finished in its original colour combination of Ermine White (colour code 936A) with Saddle leather seats (trim code 898F) and a beige softtop (code BG). The car has some desirable factory options : 4-speed gearbox, original hardtop and beautiful cast aluminium knock-off wheels. It looks and sounds gorgeous, and is a pleasure to drive. The Corvette has a Belgian registration, and has just received a full service including brake overhaul. A Corvette from 1963 is an American design icon, and a sought after classic sportscar w
Look closely at this impressive TVR Griffith 200, and you will see it is restored to perfection. A powerful sixties sportscar, both suitable for road and track. Finished in stunning Opalescent Gunmetal, with a beautifully trimmed interior in black hide. This car has been the subject of a total nut-and-bolt restoration, and is now in much better condition as it ever has been. The whole restoration process is documented with many invoices, and the car is of course confirmed by both TVRCC and Mike Mooney as being a real Griffith. It has appeared in many magazines, and all these articles are in the file as well. In short, this is a very well documented sportscar. TVR Griffiths are very impressive sportscars. The Ford 289ci small block - similar to an AC Cobra 289 - offers plenty of torque and power (+/- 300 bhp), and it is indeed a very intimidating machine to drive. Once you get used to the supercar performance of this featherweight TVR, it is a most effective driving device. The soundtrack makes it all even more dramatic, and after a short drive with this Griffith, you will feel the adrenalin rushing through your body. The very effective Wizard Cooling radiator keeps the engine cool
Jaguar launched the Series III E-Type in 1971, introducing the brand new 5,3 Litre V12 engine. The car was available with manual or automatic transmission, had standard power steering and only available with the long wheelbase body style. The engine produced 272 bhp and massive torque, and was class leading at the time. The newly used longer wheelbase offered significantly more room in all directions, and it became actually quite easy to get into the car with the longer and higher doors. When production of the E-type ceased in 1975, only 7990 examples of the V12 Convertible were made. This example was delivered new in California in 1974, and is still in very nice condition. The car had a complete repaint a couple of years ago, and also a retrim of the interior was done at the same time. Technically, this E-Type is still fairly original. It comes with many invoices of maintenance work done over the years, and the last owner spent quite a lot of money and time on the car to make it better. A new starter motor is fitted, valves and carburettors are adjusted, rear drive shaft replaced, gearbox overhauled, and a complete brake overhaul is done as well. A nice and interesting improvement
This is a car from the coachbuilt era of Alfa Romeo, when the company was world renowned for superb engineering and build quality. The Alfa Romeo 6C name was used for road, race and sportscars produced between 1927 and 1954, and refers to the straight six engine. Bodies were made by famous coachbuilders such as Touring, Pinin Farina, Zagato and Castagna. From 1938 on, the car was available as 2500, and it was the last 6C road car. It came in three different wheelbase lengths : 3,250 m for the Turismo, 3,000 m for the Sport and 2,700 m for the Super Sport. It was sold to wealthy customers, as it was one of the most expensive cars available at its own time. King Farouk, Ali Khan, Rita Hayworth and Prince Rainier all owned a 6C, and there was even one featured in the original Godfather movie from 1972. The example we offer for sale is delivered new in Lugano, and spent most of its life in Southern Italy. It is presented in a fantastic and patinated condition, due to the fact is has always been pampered and preserved by the previous owners. The Pininfarina coachwork is pure art, with a wonderful array of machine turned components and special aluminium finishers. Approximately only 80 c
It is no exaggeration to say that his car must be the holy grail for the Porsche 911 collector : unrestored, completely in original condition and fully documented. An early Porsche 911 is a very sought after classic car these days. It's a 911 in its purest form, and hard to believe that this design is now over 50 years old. It is a rare car as well, with less then 5000 examples built before the end of 1965. Finding such a Porsche is not easy, as many examples have been neglected in the past. Some were saved, and now mostly in restored condition. It was quite a surprise to come across this absolutely perfect and unrestored example, and it is a real honour to offer this unique car on the market now. This 911 was delivered new in 1965 in Los Angeles, California, where it stayed until 1994 when it came to Belgium. In the States, the car had only two owners, and they kept this car in pristine condition. The second owner took it to many concours d'elegance around the USA, and won most of them due to the originality and condition of the Porsche. In one of his letters, the owner even mentioned that his daughter often cleaned some bits of the car with a toothbrush... It came to Belgium in 1
The TR250 and TR5 were roadsters built for only 13 months between August 1967 and September 1968. Visually identical to the Michelotti styled TR4, the main differences were under the body. The most significant change from the TR4 was the 2,5 Litre straight six engine, which was carried forward to the TR6. The TR5 had a fuel injected engine, and was destined for the European market, while the identical TR250 had a twin Stromberg carburetor set-up to meet the US emission regulations. In total 8480 examples were made, and it is believed less then 700 cars are still in existence. This matching numbers car was delivered in Los Angeles in December 1967, in exactly the same colour combination as it is today. The car was imported into Europe in 2005 and nut-and-bolt restored by the late Piet Mozes, a well respected and very experienced restorer. This restoration is completely documented with many photographs which come with the car. Driving this fantastic TR250 is quite an experience. During the restoration, some details were improved to obtain better reliability and driveability. The engine now offers similar performance as its European TR5 sister, and produces a gorgeous sound while doin
The Carrera 3.0 has a very special place in the history of the Porsche 911, as it brought together elements from two of Porsche’s most legendary cars : the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS and the 1975 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0. It was only produced for two years from 1975 until 1976, and just 3867 cars were built. The Carrera 3.0 engine was essentially the 911 Turbo’s 2994 cc engine minus the turbocharger. Built before the ’911 SC’ it has everything the SC has, and more. It’s a different drive with more power (200 bhp) and it was 10% lighter too. It has the 6 bolt flywheel and a crank from the legendary 73 Carrera RS. The 3.0 carrera would go on to be the basis for all later developed 911’s up to 1989 including the 911SC and 3.2 Carrera. Performance numbers for the Carrera 3.0 are astonishingly similar to those of the famed Carrera RS of the early seventies and it’s the last time Porsche would use the Carrera name until 1985. This example was delivered new in Italy, where it spent most if its life. It was finished in a fantastic and very seventies colour combination of Platinum Diamond metallic with beige leather and tartan cloth. It has received a quality repaint in its original colour so
Dodge Viper Competition Coupé GT3. Chassisnr 098, built in 2007. Very good condition, and ready for racing.

The Viper is located at Ascari Race Resort in Ronda (Spain), where it can be inspected and tested on appointment.
This massive convertible is a very rare Oldsmobile 98 and one of only 4004 examples built that year. In 1964, the top of the line 98-series was offered in six body styles including 2-doors, 4-doors and convertible configurations. The list of standard equipment was huge : Roto Hydramatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, and seats, windshield washer, special wheel discs, map lights, and padded dash. The Olds is powered by a 394 ci. (6500 ccm) ultra high compression Rocket V8 , producing 325 bhp. Dimensions of this cruiser are rather impressive as well : it has a wheelbase of 3200 mm, an overall length of 5646 mm and a total width of 1981 mm. This is a proper American sixties cruiser to cover long distances. This car was purchased by its actual owner in 2009, and well maintained and used since. It has a belgian registration, and comes with a lot of documentation including an original manual and the full collection of 1964 workshop books. It is in good technical condition, but would benefit from a repaint. The electrically operated convertible soft top is in beautiful and works faultlessly. The interior is also in a lovely condition, finished in period correct
This is a rather unique vehicle : a Peugeot 403 Break still in its first paint. It was sold in 1959 in France, and spent its whole life in the sunny Provence region. There is no rust, and the paint is faded through the years but looks absolutely fantastic and nicely patinated. Technically, the Peugeot has just received a full service, including brake system overhaul and replacement of the rear differential. This car is fully sorted and ready to go. It is currently in "Gendarmerie" livery, as used for a photoshoot during a classic car event. These decals and signs are easily removable if required, but it looks great and suits the Peugeot very well to be honest... This is a rare opportunity to obtain a commercial vehicle in such an original condition. All the tools are still with the car, and even the factory paint code AC515 (blue) is still visible in the engine compartment. If you like originality, then this is definitely a car for you.
The Triumph TR3 is a sports car which was produced between 1955 and 1962 by Standard-Triumph. The face lifted variant, unofficially known as the "TR3A", entered production in 1957 and had the full width radiator grille and front disc brakes, just like this car which we are offering for sale. The TR3 was a fantastic little sportscar in the fifties. Powered by a 1991 ccm 4-cilinder engine, producing almost 100 bhp, it was a great and fast drivers car. A top speed of almost 170 km/u and an acceleration time of 10 seconds from 0 to 100 km/u were very impressive figures for a small sportscar of that era. It was also a regular sight at racetracks and rallies. This example is finished in the beautiful colour combination of Pale Yellow, black interior and black painted wire wheels. The car is just completely nut-and-bolt restored, and looks better then new (which it probably is as well). The quality of this restoration is from a very high level, with a beautiful paint and immaculate finish. A Triumph TR3 is an ideal starter classic car : it combines classic looks with good performance, and it's a great car to participate in both historic racing events or touristic rallies. A testdrive with
There were only 536 Mk2 Sunbeam Tigers built in total, and officially there were no right hand drive home market cars available. However, 12 RHD examples were made : 2 press cars, 4 dealer demonstrator cars, and 6 Metropolitan Police Cars. The Mk2 was rather different from the 1st series of Tigers. Most importantly, it had the 289ci V8 engine as used in the AC Cobra, Ford GT40 and Mustang. The suspension and steering were improved, and it had an egg crate style grill. The example we are offering is one of these 6 ex-Metropolitan Police Cars. Delivered new on 08.06.1967 to the Police Force at Wembley, London, wearing the NYL558E registration. The Tiger was used as high speed pursuit car on the northern roads of Greater London. After two years and 64.488 miles, NYL was decommissioned on 17.10.1969 and sold at auction. The car had 4 owners since, and a complete rebuild in 1986. It is still in fantastic condition and incredibly well documented. Even the original Rootes owners handbook and Roadcraft Police Drivers Manual are still with the car. MOT's are going back as far as 1979, and many period pictures and a photographic record of the rebuild are also in the documentation file. The c
The Renault Floride was launched at the 1958 Paris Motor Show. It was originally developed for the American market, and based on the Renault Dauphine. Pietro Frua at Carrozzeria Ghia designed the svelte and stylish body. Three versions were available : a 2+2 Coupé, a 2+2 Cabriolet and the top of the range Convertible with removable hardtop, just like the model we have on offer. The US-destined versions were named Caravelle, while the early European examples were sold as Floride. It was a fashionable car in the early sixties, not the least because Brigitte Bardot owned one. Our example was delivered new in Italy, and has been there until we purchased it. It is still in fairly original and rustfree condition. Apart from a repaint some years ago, this car is still as it was delivered in 1960 with the original vinyl seats and factory hardtop. It is even still registered on his original 1960 Italian "libretto". We had the Floride just serviced by a classic Renault specialist, and it is 100% ready for use. If you fancy a stylish and lovely little convertible, then this Floride may be perfect for you. A nice and affordable classic car in a great classic colour combination. A car which can
With great pride, we offer one of the pioneering cars of the famous rally raid Paris-Dakar : the legendary Renault 20 Turbo 4x4. Built and driven by Claude & Bernard Marreau, and hidden in a private collection for many years. This example was their first attempt for a win in the gruelling desert rally, after some impressive participations in previous editions with a Renault 4 Sinpar. This was from an era when privately entered and home built cars were still a candidate for the win, which made it all even more heroic. The Marreau brothers were passionate about African rally raids, and also very experienced. After the succesful participations with the Renault 4 Sinpar, they were asked by the Renault factory to create a winning car based on the Renault 20. The Regie supplied an unpainted body, which they reinforced and welded. The rear suspension of a Renault Trafic (with live axle) was fitted, as well as four-wheel drive and a different gearbox. The engine was taken from a Renault 18 Turbo, producing 130 bhp. This car got starting nr 174 and participated in the 1981 edition, in which it had two stage victories : Quatre Chemins - Tit (565 km) and Tit - Gao (540km). Unfortunately they
The Lancia Fulvia Sport was a sportier and more aerodynamic version of the Fulvia Coupé, designed by Ercole Spada and built by Zagato for Lancia. It was used for both road and track competitions, and was based on the mechanicals of the Coupé. The top of the range version was the Sport 1600, just like the example we have on offer. It was launched in 1971, and had the same engine as the Rally 1600 HF, producing 115 bhp. The streamlined Sport Zagato could reach 195 km/u , and was the fastest Fulvia ever produced. With only 800 examples produced, this is quite a rare car as well. This example is in great condition. It was completely restored in 2009, which is very well documented with pictures and invoices. It is a pleasure to drive, with the original 5-speed box and great Lancia 1,6 V4 engine. The optional Cromodora alloy wheels fit the car very well, and the fit and finish is really good for a handbuilt italian sportscar from the seventies. A Lancia Fulvia is a great italian classic sportscar, and a popular choice for historic rallying because it is nimble and has a good handling. The Zagato badge and elegant Ercole Spada design make the car even more desirable, and it offers similar
The Aston Martin V8 range is the next big thing in the classic car market. These cars are fastly appreciating these days, and with a reason, as it is a magnificent car to drive, with ample power from the famous Tadek Marek developed V8 engine. The V8 was built by hand in the Newport Pagnell factory for a period that spreads from 1973 until 1989, and was one of the most expensive cars money could buy at the time. The one we have just received in our inventory is an early example from 1974. It has the pure lines from the pre-Oscar India cars, and is finished in one of the most beautiful colour combinations for the V8 range. The car was delivered new in England as a RHD car, The last Spanish owner had the car converted to LHD when he purchased the car in 2009. As LHD steering racks are not longer available, this must be one of the last converted cars. and is a unique selling point for this car on the Continent. It comes with a good history file, which states that it is a three owners car. There are many invoices in the file, and interesting documentation. It is a matching nrs, car, and still in its original colour combination but probably repainted once. As it is now 40 years old, it
Is there any cooler car than the Lamborghini Espada ? This stunning looking car, based on the striking Bertone designed Lamborghini Marzal concept, was quite unlike anything else on the road when it was launched in 1968. This Italian grand tourer still looks as fascinating today, with a glorious engine and room for four. Perhaps even more surprising than its exotic looks is the way it feels from behind the steering wheel. The Espada features a fully independent suspension, and the combination of the wide track and low centre of gravity endows it with an uncomparable level of body control, certainly compared to other sixties GT's with a live-axle suspension set-up. It remains a car primarily set up for cruising though, albeit one which loves to rev. The Espada’s engine is a variation of the 3.9-litre V12 fitted to the Miura. Smaller carburettors reduce overall power output, but it’s still good for as much as 375 bhp at 7500 rpm, revving all the way to 8000. The long shift action of the gearbox doesn’t like to be rushed, and suits the relaxed nature well. It’s even practical, too. There is genuine space for four adults inside, and the boot is wide and square. This fantastic example i
One of the rarest Porsches ever built is the 911R. This was an extreme lightweight variation developed in 1966, based on the then newly released 911. Porsche focused primarily on weight reduction, and every single component was replaced by a lightweight counterpart. Most of the panels were refabricated in fiberglass, including doors, bonnet and engine cover. All the standard interior items were deleted, and the glass side windows were replaced by lightweight perspex. Total weight of the 911R was only 810 kg, while the engine produced a healthy 210 bhp. Unfortunately the R did never meet the intended class requirements, and had to race in the prototype class. Alongside competition such as the seven-liter Ford GT40, the 911R never got its honest chance at victory until the Tour de France relaunch in 1969. A single car was entered in the race by the factory with Gerard Larousse behind the wheel. The agility of the 911 helped him take the overall victory through a mixture of hillclimb and road courses. Porsche only made 20 customer cars and 4 prototypes, which makes a total of 24 examples. That is indeed a rare Porsche ! This example is based on a 1966 car, originally delivered in Pisa
The Jaguar E-Type : one of the most beautiful cars ever made, and for that reason on the wishlist of many classic car enthusiasts. No wonder, because it looks like nothing else on the road, and it drives as good as it looks. Early E-types are now becoming very expensive, and it looks like the continuous appreciation is not over yet. For that reason, the previously less sought after Series II and Series III V12 cars are now following in the footsteps of the Series 1. No wonder, because these later cars offer almost similar beauty in combination with a more comfortable driving experience. This matching nrs example was delivered new in September 1970 in the USA. It has a factory power steering , which is a very rare but interesting optional equipment. This sensible improvement turns the E-Type in a more accessible classic car for many, and works so much better then an aftermarket electrical power steering. The car was imported into Belgium in 2006, and stored for a couple of years to be restored. This restoration started in 2012, and was finished last year. This E-Type looks like a new car, and the quality of the restoration is from a very high level. The colour combination works very
Just arrived : a fantastic and rare TVR 3000 S. This lovely roadster is still in great original condition, well documented and extremely rare as only 67 examples were made in LHD. A great British roadster at an interesting price. There are still a few bargains in the classic car market !
