When stripped back the body was found to be in remarkable order, just as we expected. We also had some brightwork refinished, again not due to damage but minor age related fading, which we wanted perfected. Needles to say the re-fit included many new parts and new seals were used throughout. The results to this lengthy but sympathetic restoration are simply stunning.

1967 Dino Spider 2.0 by Pininfarina Finished in Rosso red with black vinyl interior Introduced at the Turin Motor Show in October 1966, the Dino road cars came to be because Enzo Ferrari needed to homologate an engine for Formula 2 racing, the rules of which specified that the engine needed to be derived from a production road car, of which 500 examples had to be produced within 12 months. Since a small manufacturer such as Ferrari did not have the capacity to produce such numbers an agreement was made with Fiat. These early 2000 Fiat Dino’s featured the all aluminium V6 shared with the Dino 206GT, coupled to a 5-speed transmission. This particular example was imported last year from the North of Italy and is in remarkable condition. It retains its original vinyl interior and is even still fitted with its original steering wheel. The car was repainted some time ago whilst still in Italy, clearly to a very high standard. The bodywork is very straight indeed with excellent panel-gaps and since arriving here at Avantgarde we have had a new soft-top fitted. Now offered fully UK registered, a nicer example would be very difficult to source.

The engine was taken out of the car, stripped down and rebuilt with genuine parts only. Various suspension, steering and brake components were removed and refurbished or replaced. No expense was spared and the cost of this was in excess of £21000. The car has since covered some 3,500 trouble-free

Specification includes air conditioning, electric sunroof, central locking, electric windows, on-board computer, alloy wheels, power steering, period Pioneer hi-fi system. Supplied new by Black & White Garages BMW main dealer of Evevsham on 6th June 1982, and owned by the same family from new. In 1997 the car was sent back to the supplying garage, which by then was trading as Robert Stern BMW, and went through a no-expense spared refurbishment. At this point it had covered 76,225 miles. It was decided that the vehicle was to stay in the family long-term so therefore be bought up to tip-top condition and used for high days and holidays. Bills are on file for this work totalling circa £10,000. Shortly after the refurbishment usage decreased and the car was eventually left unused, although carefully stored in dry conditions. The car has just recently come out of storage and acquired by ourselves. A full recomissioning service has been carried out by highly regarded BMW specialist Noel Butler/Autokraft. Comes with the original Handbook and vehicle service book and presents in a conditi
1978 Fiat 130 Coupe 3200cc V6 5-speed manual RHD Grey metallic with copper velour interior 18,000 miles from new Factory specification includes air conditioning, electric windows, power steering, town and country horns, sundym glass, opening rear windows, front and rear seat belts. This remarkable right hand drive example has been cherished for its entire life. On close inspection the underside shows no signs of previous welding or corrosion, due partly to the vehicle having been Ziebart rustproofed by the first owner. The subsequent owner kept the car in dry storage and only used it occasionally in good weather, only selling the car due to emigrating. The next owner, a midlands based car collector, acquired it in 2014 having previously owned a 130 Coupe. It shared garage space with other Italian exotica including Lamborghini’s. Hence the last major service being carried out by renowned Lamborghini Specialists Colin Clarke Engineering. Designed by Pininfarina they are in my opinion perhaps the most elegant coupe of the era, even Enzo Ferrari drove one in period! Having cover only 18,000 miles from new this must be one of the very finest examples in existence today and RHD too.
