Manufactured in 1984 the MP53 was the first honeycomb chassis by Pilbeam and was also fitted with pushrod suspension. This was a very advanced car for its time, and weighed in at only 508kg. Chassis number MP53 -04 was a double Hillclimb Championship winner with many FTD’s in the hands of Martyn Griffiths and Max Harvey. The Hart engine was subsequently developed and turbocharged in line with current F1 practice. The car continued to compete successfully in the hands of Martyn Griffiths, and in turbo form finished second overall in 1988 British Hillclimb Championship, narrowly missing out on an overall win. Tim Thompson then ran the car in 1989, finishing third overall in British Championship and winning the Harewood Championship. Having been stored in component form for many years, MP53-04 was fully rebuilt by Barrie Lines from 2007, with a complete photographic record of each stage. This included an engine rebuild by Ray Buckley who worked on Hart turbo engines in period. The car was converted from Zytek to DTA ignition and a new intercooler was fitted to to be on the safe side (original pipework with car to revert to original if required). Turbo work and wastegate rebuilt by Turbo Technics and the engine was run in and dyno’d by Aldon Automotive. In period the engine ran a higher boost and produced 450 bhp. In its current set up the engine was dynoed at 380 bhp at 5/6 psi boost pressure. The car was also resprayed and decaled in its period livery. Set up by Ian Dayson and has covered very little mileage since rebuild. On the button and complete with a useful spares package including slicks and wets on Pilbeam rims.

A brief specification is provided below, with further details available at http://xp-cr1-irl.com/
This lovely example is one of the best prepared competition cars we have ever seen, and is the result of a four year labour of love from its fastidious owner The TVR was purchased as a barn find road car in 2006 and completely rebuilt, including: •fitting a new chassis with a bolt on body •lowering the driver's side floor by one inch to increase headroom •boring the original engine block to 1850cc and fitting a flat sided and polished Tuftrided QPQ crankshaft and Carrillo rods •fitting a Peter Burgess gasflowed and polished cylinder head with bigger valves, and a Kent 719SP camshaft •rebuilding the original C/R gearbox •replacing the whole wiring system to incorporate relays •ceramic coating the exhaust manifold (inside and out) and the inlet manifold •setting up the car to optimise corner weights and handling The engine produces 139.9 bhp and 143.8 ft lbs torque. The car weight is 1853 lbs with driver, 3/4 tank and passenger floor plate. FBD 2C was raced during 2010 and 2011 and was prepared for the 2012 season with an engine refresh, extra light flywheel and redesigned cooling system. It has not been raced since, but carefully stored and maintained by its owner. Eligible for a wide variety of attractive events in Europe and further afield, the TVR is also road legal and registered. Complete with an extensive history file, photographic record of the restoration and detailed build, set-up and running notes. Also a useful spares package, including a spare seat and harness for track day or road event use. A immaculate Brian James open trailer is also available by separate negotiation.
It is believed that less than 15 of the 158 Daytonas supplied new in the UK were supplied in this car's colour. It is stunning in its original Argento (silver) and still has a beautiful Connolly interior finished to original colour VM3015 (blue with black Daytona stripes). This car is well known to us, as it was sold to the present owner after we completed a full engine overhaul in our workshop, using an original old-stock set of brand-new factory oversize Borgo Daytona pistons, and having individually bored and honed each cylinder liner to suit. This ensures absolutely correct running clearances and balance. The original and fragile sodium-cooled exhaust valves have been replaced by an unleaded conversion set made of modern, high specification material. This is an essential preventative upgrade for all Ferrari engines of this period. The interior was also sympathetically refurbished by our ex-Connolly craftsman and looks virtually new (it is hard to find leather now of the quality Connolly originally presented and to find original period leather of this quality in a Daytona today is very rare indeed). The dashboard was re-covered in its original expensive "mousehair", and still looks like new. We have also recently fitted electric power steering, which greatly improves low speed manoeuvrability. The car has covered 36,000 miles from new, with a history including over 20 MOT certificates (from the very first one in 1975) and the original factory order form. This car is highly desirable, almost certainly one of the best on the market, a lovely thing to behold and drive, and a first class investment opportunity.

Recognised as one of the most powerful sports racers ever to have competed in speed events, the SPA Judd is a fabulous piece of engineering which started life as a 2.8 litre Hart powered car in the early 90s. Original owner David Render used the car in hills and sprints before selling it on to Ferrari & Lancia enthusiast Christian Mineeff. Christian then had the car completely reworked and converted to F1 power with a 3.5 litre Judd CV power plant. Aero developments by Gould Engineering in the late 1990s made this car the fastest sports racer on the hills bar none. Subsequently owned by Matthew Harrison and Chris Cannell, the car has most recently been campaigned with some success by Tom Brown and Steve Cunningham. Powered by a mighty ex Leyton House Judd CV 3.5 litre F1 engine, which still runs F1 cams and sounds utterly superb! Following successful outings in 2013/14 the car was taken to Group C specialists Xtec, who carried out a full chassis up rebuild of the car, complete gearbox rebuild and a full top end rebuild on the Judd. Only used on one occasion since, the car has been carefully stored and regularly run up since and is ready for the forthcoming season. Complete with three sets of wheels and used tyres, remote starter, pre-heater, spare gear rations, a set of straight through pipes and everything you need to run the car. It also has a PC with data-logging and an old style MSA Competition Log Book. Your chance to own an awesome piece of hillclimbing history! May split if sufficient interest.
The 430 Scuderia continued Ferrari successes with their 360 Challenge Stradale race styled road cars assisted by Michael Schumacher, shaving 100kg from the standard 430 and boasting a top speed of 198mph. Fitted with Carbon ceramic brakes, extensively proven on Ferraris own test track alongside the Bosch system pumping through Brembo calipers. The weight is saved with the abundant use of carbon, allowing the V8 to deliver its 510bhp through updated Superfast2 paddleshift transmission. We are delighted to offer this fabulous example in Factory Nero with Grigio factory stripes, fresh from a recent service and overhauled brake calipers. The sound this car makes is pure Schumacher, high level exhausts at the rear and steering wheel setting controls complete the F1 style. The stripped out cabin denotes this is a special car. Originally purchased in Belgium, first registered in UK in 2005 after Graypaul Ferrari serviced and corrected to UK requirements including changing the headlight units (original headlight units with the car). Stunning from every angle, acoustics to match and an absolute joy to drive. Registration available by separate negotiation.
This genuine John Player Special 5 Speed has been competed very successfully by its current owner for the past 15 years, including Tour Auto, Tour Britannia, Mont Ventoux, HSCC Roadsports and CSCC Swinging Sixties.

•In excellent condition throughout •This was the 200th car of this type (chassis 50200) •Restoration work carried out in 1998 •Complete with a folder of original Jaguar sales information and photographs It is unusual to find a manual S3 E Type that has been as cherished as this car. In excellent condition throughout, the S3 drives exactly as it should and looks stunning from every angle. Chassis number IS 50200 was delivered on 4 June 1971 and was the 200th car of this type. The detailed history file contains full ownership records from new and extensive service information from 1984. The car was fitted with a replacement rebuilt engine in 1997 (at 33,000 miles), when the gearbox was also rebuilt. Restoration work carried out in 1998 included a bare metal respray, and there is a photographic record of this on file. Complete with a folder of original Jaguar sales information and photographs. Fitted with a mohair Webasto roof, stainless steel exhaust and an alarm system, this lovely example is ready to enjoy.
This remarkable Testarossa is probably one of the best and lowest mileage LHD cars on the market today. It was delivered new in Milan to its only owner and was first registered on the road on 9 January 1989. In the 27 years since, it has been driven for less than 3,000 kilometres. Recently benefitting from a very extensive (28,000 euro) cambelt service and clutch replacement by Milanese dealer Rossocorsa, this stunning one owner car is driving exactly as it should. Complete with full sets of tools and books in their original leather folio, and in virtually 'as new' condition throughout, including the pristine Rosso Corsa bodywork and black leather interior. This rare find has Ferrari Classiche certification and would be a worthwhile addition to any collection.
This Series 2 DB4 retains all of its particular- to- series body features, including the early ‘Art Deco’ rear lights, grille and bonnet scoop. It’s all a matter of taste, but these fittings do make the early DB4s purer for many collectors than the later cars. The engine is the original ‘matching numbers’ unit, but the cylinder head has been considerably upgraded some years ago to unleash a notable amount of the extra power potential that these units have in reserve. This includes special camshafts and porting, and a triple SU carb set-up. Not only is the engine straining at the leash when blipped from idle, but the performance on the open road is far more satisfying than a standard DB4. This lovely example was delivered on 26th November 1960 for the use of Mr John Bowthorpe, bearing the distinctive registration plate JB 720. Originally finished in Pale Primrose with black Connolly hide, the car has subsequently received a high quality colour change to a very attractive shade of deep red. Following two further owners in the UK and warranty work recorded until 1968 it was later purchased by the President of the Italian Section of the Aston Martin Owners Club, Massimo Meli. During his ownership in 1999 the publication Ruote Classiche used the car as a cover car in a 10page article. In 2011 it was brought back to the UK and was able to once again maintain the original ‘James Bond’ registration initials as delivered back in 1960. This new owner used the car at UK AMOC events over the years and had Aston Specialists check the car annually, only travelling a few hundred miles each year. With only 1,110 DB4s manufactured across all 5 series and prices of DB4s going skywards, we are delighted to offer this most useable Series 2. With options to drive or improve, this great driving Aston certainly represents investment with prices of restored cars now in excess of £500k.
This lovely Lotus Elan S2 was fully rebuilt by specialists to 26R specification in 2012, using a correct 26R chassis and lightweight body, all steel engine, Quaife gearbox and diff. Initially successful in tour and historic events the car was subsequently exported to South Africa, where it raced with some success. Earlier this year the car had a full engine rebuild and has only competed in two short races since.

A stunning example which is ideal for Spa, Goodwood, pre-1966 GT and other prestigious events worldwide.
Bentley launched the Azure as its first all new convertible car in nearly 30years, with design input from Pininfarina. The engine is the renowned Bentley 6 ¾ litre V8 powerhouse that delivers 385bhp with effortless torque in a car weighing over 2.6tons. This lovely example is presented in Peacock Blue with parchment hide interior and contrasting blue piping. Walnut veneers and blue carpets complete the cabin interior while the blue mohair roof operates as you would expect. These collectable cars are more desirable as only 1,403 cars were built, as most were LHD for the international market this is a very rare low mileage RHD example. It was last sold by ourselves to add to the fleet of the current owner who used it sparingly, covering just 500 miles. Importantly the car has excellent Bentley service history including full No3 hydraulic service just over 2,000 miles ago, with a full No2 service just completed in our workshops ready for sale. Please note the registration is NOT INCLUDED in the sale.
All aluminium, the original Thrupp & Maberly coachbuilt body (number '5411') was refurbished throughout, being bare-metal stripped, etch-primed and re-sprayed in black over the Bentley blue of the original 4-Litre radiator badge. The 20" wire wheels have been sprayed to match and all the original bearing grease caps and quick release nuts have been re-chromed. The original speedometer was professionally restored, re-calibrated and zeroed. The car has been rewired throughout and discreet amber flasher bulbs have been fitted at front and rear, as has a double stop light to the original 'diver's helmet' rear lamps. A superb windscreen-mounted spotlight by Stephen Grebel has been fitted, and the Bosch headlights are double dipping with the correct lenses. Illuminated by the original recessed ground-glass lenses, the original black leather upholstered was re-Connollised and a new grey West of England roof lining professionally fitted, as was a customised set of new leather-bound matching Wilton woollen carpets. Featured in Ray Roberts' Bentley Specials and Special Bentleys Vol 2 (page 524) this superb example of the last of the Cricklewood-built models comes with a large history file containing bills; period photos; original factory blueprints; and copies of several articles written about it. It will not disappoint.
The XJ-S followed the E type, featuring a larger area but better drag factor. In 1988 the convertible version provided an option that many owners had desired. The new design was another Norman Dewis tested and tested again project, reflected in the handling and performance of the Big Cat's V12, at a time when only top Italian marques ventured to market with V12s. This extremely low mileage automatic HE is a fabulous example. It has had a recent engine check and engine bay refresh, making it a pleasure to open to bonnet. It drives smoothly from start-up and the roof opens effortlessly ready to have the smart cover popped on for true open top touring. An exciting opportunity for a Big Cat lover to purchase such an example, complete with original manuals in the Jaguar wallet and a rather rare "Genesis of the Jaguar V12" brochure. An original tool roll and lots of previous MOTs are also included.
The Willys MB (commonly known as a Jeep) was a four-wheel drive utility vehicle that was manufactured during World War II. Most saw active service and the model was used across a wide range of armed forces. Ultimately the Jeep inspired an entire category of recreational 4WDs and several generations of military light utility vehicles. Like most surviving Jeeps the wartime history of this particular example is unknown, although the dasboard does bear the plaque 'Peter Park Kranji'. But what is evident is that the vehicle has been sensivitively restored to very good condition. In standard trim other than the customary conversion to 12v electrics and alternator. Driving extremely well. Finished in army green and complete with hood, spade, jerry can and extinguisher.
Although Ferrari produced the Testarossa in relatively large numbers between 1984 and 1992, only 438 of the total factory production of 7,177 were UK RHD cars. This stunning low mileage RHD car has been owned by enthusiasts and carefully looked after by Ferrari main dealers and ourselves. The car is a rare find in this condition and drives exactly as it should. The flat 12 engine, breathing through the iconic 'cheese grater' side vents produces just under 400bhp with a possible top speed of 180mph. Complete with full sets of tools and books in their original leather folio, and in virtually 'as new' condition throughout, including the pristine Rosso Corsa bodywork and tan leather interior.

-2 owners since 1959 -Second owner movie legend Sir Ken Adam -Incredibly rare- One of three RHD examples built -Drives beautifully This car is one of three right-hand-drive Silver Cloud I original Drophead Coupé Adaptations by H.J. Mulliner, making it a most rare and desirable offering. It has been based in London virtually since new, having originally been delivered in July 1959 to A. Robert Gooda, of Goodhale Engineering Ltd., who was a devout Bentley and Rolls-Royce enthusiast and a great customer of the factory. Mr Gooda specified to have the car built with several bespoke options, as is indicated by original build records. The car is well documented, including mentions in several archival publications, most prominently Lawrence Dalton's Rolls-Royce: The Classic Elegance, James Taylor's Original Rolls-Royce and Bentley 1946–65, and Davide Bassoli's definitive work on the model, Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining. Mr Gooda owned his Silver Cloud I until 1975, when it was sold to its second owner, Sir Ken Adam, the renowned British film production designer who is best remembered for his work on the classic James Bond films. He designed every set on the first eleven Bond films from Dr.No through to Moonraker, and has been credited with stamping the Bond "look" on screen. Sir Ken has been nominated three times for an Academy Award and has won twice. Sir Ken was a great fan of this Rolls-Royce, and for many years during his long career, the car was shipped to wherever he was working, all over the world. Even when he travelled to Hollywood the Silver Cloud I followed him, accompanied by its own driver. It was a common sight in the movie studios' backlots in Hollywood. The car is presented wearing an older but presentable Porcelain White repaint, as well as a lovingly much-patinated red leather interior with wool carpeting and exquisite wood veneer trim, all of which is believed to be highly original. It is an honest automobile that looks exactly like what it is: a Rolls-Royce that has been owned and used for enthusiastic touring all over the world by the same owner for the last four decades. Here is a quotation from Sir Ken. "One night, many years ago, I saw it in the window of a used car dealership near my house. The next day I went in to buy it but they told me: 'you're not the right person for this Rolls.' And I said: 'well, how do you know?' Actually, the man who ran the business was very nice. He was an old ex-naval commander, and I was pretty young. He just thought it was not the right type of car for me – that I was more of 'a sports car person'. Still I thought the Rolls was very pretty and so I bought it anyway. It cost something like £20,000, which I could afford – I can't remember exactly how much. I've always loved cars. I've had E type Jaguars and a Mercedes 540K. The Mercedes was super-charged which was fantastic even though it guzzled so much petrol, which was a problem after WWII because of the fuel rationing. I guess a two-door Rolls Royce convertible is something like their sports car version; or as close to a sports car a Rolls can get. Until recently I used the Rolls more or less every day; for example to go to the swimming pool, a 15-minute drive from my house in Kensington. Now I don't really need it anymore so I keep it in the garage. I have only pleasant memories of my Rolls. I can't remember that it ever let me down. I've used it all over Europe: I drove with it to Italy and Spain, to France, everywhere. It has travelled over 250,000 miles." This car drives beautifully, the factory-fitted PAS tracking unusually straight and true. A very collectible car with a unique history.
The XK120C’s astonishing 1951 debut and 1953 victories at Le Mans 24-Hour Race established Jaguar’s first purpose-built racing sports car as one of the all-time greats paving the way for the D-Type. These multiple Le Mans wins in the 1950s, as well as numerous victories in the other great classic endurance events, have ensured a continuing healthy demand for replicas of Jaguar’s rare and exotic works sports-racers. This car is offered for sale having been commissioned to respected C & D type builder Jim Marland, who constructed this exacting replica some 10 years ago for the previous owner. Its multi-tubular spaceframe chassis is clothed in aluminium alloy coachwork recreating the style of the original factory cars. The 3.8-litre engine is C-Type specification but fitted with 9.8-1 compression Cosworth pistons on a polished and nitrated crankshaft under polished gas flowed E type head. Without question one of the most desirable C-Type replicas around, with a 1956 date of registration on V5C document.
Intended to be the spiritual successor to Chevron's iconic B8, the GR8 was designed to replicate the agility, lightness and excellent power to weight ratio of this highly successful sixties GT, whilst taking advantage of subsequent advances in race car technology and aerodynamics.
