SUPER CAR OF THE NINETIES, ONE OF JUST 285 EXAMPLES MADE Brand Jaguar Type XJ220 Color Blue Interior Grey Year of build 1992 Price € 475.000,- 1993 JAGUAR XJ 220 One of only 285 examples made Supercar of the nineties With the original Owner’s Handbook and the Service Record and Warranty card Only 3.600 kilometers since new A dream has come true. I still remember the day that my parents gave me a 1:18 size scale model when I was approximately 7 years old. We were in central London and it was my favorite out of hundreds of scale models. The XJ 220 was a toy which I took everywhere but nobody else was allowed to play with it except myself. After 3 years I first saw the XJ 220 in real. A customer of a Land Rover dealer where I was washing cars came by with his Jaguar XJ 220. In Holland it was even more unique to see such a supercar as we have an extra road tax and therefore a Jaguar XJ 220 was costing over 1.000.000,- guilders which is nowadays the same in Euro’s. After quite a big research we have been able to buy after many years a Jaguar XJ 220 in silver. This car we sold as we cannot keep all cars ourselves unfortunately but luckily we recently found this blue example. The color of

Luckily, the company was rescued from liquidation by an industrialist by the name of David Brown. While the first post-war Aston, the 2-Litre Sports, only found 14 buyers, the car that followed would be a resounding success, with its W.O. Bentley-designed six-cylinder engine appropriated from Lagonda, which Brown acquired in parallel with Aston Martin. The DB2 was introduced in 1949 in prototype form, and it incorporated everything that anyone could
JUST ARRIVED, 14-07 Brand Aston Martin Type DB5 Color Green Interior Green Year of build 1965 Price Price On Request 1965 ASTON MARTIN DB5 Aston Martin DB5, well known as being the most famous car in the world One of the most iconic classic cars Superb color combination By driving the car, you definitely feel yourself a bit James Bond The Aston Martin DB5 is one of the most iconic classic cars and because of that a serious investment. Nearly fifty years after its screen debut in 1964, the DB5 has left an indelible mark on popular culture. Due to the amazing impact James Bond had and and still has, the DB5 is a car which has to be part in almost every serious classic car collection. In the late 1950s, Aston Martin was still a small, highly exclusive car manufacturer that produced less than 250 hand-built cars per year. Their clientele was an exclusive base of discerning connoisseurs of grand touring motor cars, many who were attracted to the company due to its successes in sports car racing. The DB5 was costing roughly twice of a new Jaguar E-type. In 1963, Aston Martin introduced the DB5 at the Earl’s Court Motor Show in London. The design was similar to the DB4, but the six-cylind

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 Aston Martin DB2 Works Competition Lightweight This exceptionally important Aston Martin is one of just two lightweight DB2s constructed by the works to contend the 1951 season. XMC76 and its sister car, XMC77, were built at Aston Martin’s Feltham factory, Middlesex in 1951 and designed from the outset to be purebred racing sports cars. Unlike production DB2s, they featured an extensively drilled chassis and employed lighter gauge aluminium in their bodies, which, combined with bucket seats, minimal trim, and selective use of Perspex instead of glass, delivered a weight reduction of almost 20% compared to a road car. Performance was further enhanced by an uprated 2.6 Litre engine with high compression aluminium cylinder head and triple weber carburettors, which delivered a potent 138bhp. XMC76’s competition debut came at the Daily Express International Trophy meeting at Silverstone on May 5th 1951. Against a field packed with XK120s driven by the likes of Stirling Moss, Leslie Johnson and Duncan Hamilton, Parnell managed to bring home the Aston home in 7th place overall and win the 3 Litre class. The next outing, held 6 weeks later on 23r

VB6B/50/1126 Light Blue Metallic with Dark Blue Leather Interior Aston Martin’s first successful postwar car, the DB2 represented significant advancements over the 2-liter sports (also referred to as the DB1). In place of the four cylinder pushrod motor of the 2-liter sports, the DB2 utilized a sophisticated 2.6 liter twin overhead cam inline-6 designed by none other than W.O. Bentley. Bentley originally designed the powerplant for Lagonda, and it was specifically to acquire this engine that David Brown purchased Lagonda in 1947, creating a pairing that is now one of motoring’s legendary names: Aston Martin Lagonda. Brown had also purchased Aston Martin in 1947, and the DB2 was the first result of his vision when he purchased the two companies. The car also laid the groundwork for the series of now legendary DB Astons. The DB2 possessed excellent roadholding and braking ability, and was very much a contender for Britain’s best sports car at the time, with the only credible threat coming from the Jaguar XK120. Indeed, Aston achieved
