Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti following on from the Ferrari Daytona at Pininfarina studios where also the body was produced. The chassis is a tubular still based on the 365 GTC/4 with fibreglass floor. This car is equipped with its matching numbers 4.400lt 6 Weber carbureted Colombo F101 engine producing 320bhp first designed by the the motoring genius Vittorio Jano. Launched 12mnonths after the 365 GT4 at the Paris Motor Show. The gentleman's driver car, 365 GT4 2+2 had a large celebrity appeal back in the day, including Rat Pack Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davies Jr, Tina Turner, Bill Cosby who owned a brown metallic one, Julles Villeneuve and more. Today the 365 GT4 2+2 is a car that is appreciated by the collectors world and within reasonable price range comparing other V12 Ferrari's like the Daytona with plexi glass selling for approximately £700.000 with factory correct 5 spoke knock off wheels. Where do we start, this is a fabulous garage find we are selling on behalf of the owner who enjoyed it since the early 1990s. As the pictures tell it was once garaged some 10 years ago by the owner and whilst some intention to refresh was started some years ago, it did not progress beyond sample cutaways on the drivers side. So here we present a car in obvious need of full restoration to the body, with additional work to be discovered, however the headlining is superb so maybe just a fresh set of tyres? Joking aside it is going to be a project for an enthusiast that can appreciate with only 500+ of these produced, made before the introduction of the 400, this ultra-rare RHD version will compliment a Ferrari first timer or Ferrari fanatic who has the passion. With Lamborghini Espada values now being recognised for the V12 Grand Tourer cars of the 1970s, the 365 GT4 2+2 is sure to follow suit as the Espadas counterpart. This car is offered UK registered for sale as spares or repair basis.
The Lotus Elite was an early example of Colin Chapman's genius and caused a stir when launched at the 1957 Earls Court Motor Show, with its highly innovative fibreglass monocoque construction and remarkable aerodynamics. Once in production the car was immediately popular with enthusiasts, due to its excellent performance and roadholding. The SE was introduced in 1960 as a higher-performance variant, with twin SU carburettors increasing power output to 85 bhp and a ZF gearbox. The Super 95 gained an additional 10 bhp from its tuned Coventry Climax FWE engine with raised 10.5:1 compression ratio. This stunning matching numbers Super 95 is immaculately presented fresh from a 3 year sympathetic restoration, and is one of only 23 Super Series (95, 100, 105) cars. The restoration included an engine rebuild by specialist Tony Mantle of Climax Engine Services and the car also benefits from: •twin 1.5” SU carburettors •high lift 3 bearing camshaft •modern Lucas distributor •unleaded fuel conversion •lipseal conversion •SU electric fuel pump •long range fuel tank •stainless silencers A rare and highly enjoyable car with excellent investment potential.
This stunning Elan Sprint has benefitted from an extensive restoration in recent years, including: •Lotus chassis shotblasted and powder coated •Body stripped and repainted Carnival red •Engine rebuilt •Seats retrimmed •New carpets •Original dashboard re-polished •New hood •Re-wired •New brake pipes •New shock absorbers In addition the Elan has been uprated with the fitment of Minilite wheels (originals also included), solid drive shafts, an electric water pump and Brembo discs all round. The detailed history file includes invoices and a full photographic record of the work carried out. Originally supplied to Hexagon of Highgate in February 1973 this immaculate example began life in the less popular optional single colour scheme of Tawny Metallic. Invoices and MOT certificates on file are consistent with the low recorded mileage of only 33,000 miles, which is believed to be correct. The car drives superbly and is admired wherever it goes. It has just been fitted with a complete stainless exhaust system, been freshly serviced and is ready to enjoy.
This stunning example of a very desirable Jaguar benefitted from a full body-off restoration in the mid 2000s, including the installation of a fully rebuilt 3.8 engine, refurbished suspension and brakes, a complete rewire, retrim and repaint in bright red. This lovely factory RHD car has been kept in Spain in recent years and the restoration work has stood the test of time. In particular the (fully rustproofed) chassis is in excellent condition and the paintwork, chromework and interior remains very smart. Complete with a heritage certificate, detailed history file, workshop and spare parts manuals. A great driving example with a remarkably smooth Moss gearbox and strong engine.
Originally supplied in April 1963 this very smart matching numbers Super De Luxe Mini is attractively presented in its original colour of Surf Blue with Blue interior. The detailed history file provides evidence of considerable recent expenditure on the bodywork, mechanics and interior, together with a photographic record of the work carried out. The car is also now fitted with a single Weber downdraft carb, larger bore exhaust system and reverse rim wheels. Recently set up on a rolling road, this Mini is great fun to drive and attracts attention wherever it goes. However, the owner has retained the standard carb, wheels and exhaust and the car could alternatively be supplied in standard trim. With Mini prices showing no sign of slowing down this example represents a very attractive and enjoyable investment.
-Bespoke built by Mercedes for the Turin Motor Show of 1956 -Highly desirable options list including Rudge Wheels -Matching Numbers -Original factory paint colour stunning DB180 Silver -Fitted Luggage -Superb driver This car was specially made by Mercedes-Benz as a “Standwagen”, or Motor Show Display car to represent the best of Mercedes-Benz on their stand at the 1956 Turin show. It is well-known that Mercedes put particular extra effort into making these cars absolutely perfect in presentation, but also covetable in specification. Hence this car has had the following very expensive options from new:- -Rudge wheels -Beautiful Specially hand-made Nardi steering wheel, with cast-in folding hub to gain access to the Gullwing seat -Short “Sports” Gearlever -Metallic Silver paint The Rudge wheels are a very important feature. They were an extremely expensive option when the car was new, adding an extra- large percentage alone to the price. These are such a coveted option, they still add 10% to the value of a Gullwing today. Lots of Gullwings have had modern replica Rudge wheels fitted now; they are retro-fit, but add next to nothing to the value. Also, the car was finished in DB180 Silver from new for the show, because Mercedes knew it was the best colour, highlighting the Mille- Miglia and GP winning “Silver Arrows” cars. It also comes with a handbook and toolkit, fitted leather luggage, and even the original 300SL tyre pressure gauge! The car was subject to a bare-metal restoration in the U.S. some years ago, but still presents and drives beautifully. It will require some minor chassis work prior to delivery, but this is included in the purchase price. A car that continues to stun and stop people in their tracks over sixty years on. The car is EU taxes paid and UK registered.
This is a highly original F3 with single ownership from new and impeccable provenance. Piercarlo Ghinzani was one of the most successful Italian racing drivers of the 1980's. He was the Italian and European Formula 3 championship winner before launching a Formula One career which lasted from 1981 until 1989. Ghinzani went on to drive in 77 Formula One Grand Prix, mostly for Osella, but also for Toleman, Ligier and Zakspeed. He also drove successfully in Group C as a works driver for Lancia with Italian teammates Michele Alboreto and Riccardo Patrese. This lovely March 773 was used by Ghinzani to win the 1977 European Formula 3 Championship, beating drivers such as Nelson Piquet, Elio de Angelis and Derek Warwick. It was an outright winner 3 times that season (at Nurburgring, Zolder and Imola) and with a total of 9 podium appearances they became the dominant car and driver combination of the season. Professionally stored and maintained ever since, the Toyota Novamotor had its most recent rebuild in 2010 by Ellegi Motori and has only run 200 kms since. This car was on pole at Monaco in 1977, and would surely be a highly attractive entry when F3 cars next run at the Historique.
Although the S version of the Miura came out in 1969, it was not radically different from the original P400. Bob Wallace, Lamborghini's development test driver wanted to explore more of the huge performance potential of the Miura, and built his own test bed car which ended up being brutally fast. This 'Jota' was so cutting-edge that only a small number of the improvements incorporated in it made their way in to the later Miura SV. The Jota was destroyed in 1972 in a crash being driven by someone whose abilities fell far behind the car's. Five production SV's were partially 'Jota-ised' but this was mainly cosmetic. We are delighted to be able to offer this stunning Jota evocation again. It is based on a Miura S which was supplied new into Japan, and has spent most of its life there. Its last Japanese owner set out to produce a car whose closeness to the original Jota specification was much more than skin deep, and there is a comprehensive photo record and bills on file for over £365,000. This work included producing a set of bespoke hand formed aluminium bodywork with exposed rivets and fitting a specially modified SV engine, as well as a simply stunning ground up restoration. The build quality far exceeds anything produced by the factory in period. Please contact us for details of the extensive specification, which is too lengthy to list here. We have taken this work a significant stage further, resulting in a show-stopping Miura which bears the closest inspection from even the most accomplished automotive engineer. However we would be able to convert the car back to S specification should this be preferred, and with Miura prices rising so rapidly this would be cost effective for its new owner. This is almost certainly the most visually striking Miura, and the most exhilarating to drive, currently available anywhere. It also sounds superb - please click button opposite!
Aston Martin's V8 Coupe has become something of an Eighties icon, with prices rising accordingly. With more muscular body lines and a torquey eight cylinder engine the car was designed to appeal to the American market and offered a radically different driving experience to the earlier six cylinder DB series. The Series IV (also known as Oscar India) introduced a bonnet bulge in place of the previous scoop, an integral boot spoiler, new dash and revised trim. From 1980 the high compression '580' engine was introduced, still fed by Weber twin choke downdraught carburettors. This lovely automatic example is attractively finished in pale blue with Magnolia hide and fitted with optional BBS alloy wheels. One of only 291 Oscar Indias produced and in very good condition throughout. Originally supplied by Marshalls to the Cambridge Optical Company it was first registered on 1 August 1984. The Aston has clearly been very well maintained throughout its life, as demonstrated by the ream of invoices from Aston Works, dealers and specialists on the large history file. These invoices and a virtually continuous MOT history substantiate the relatively low recorded mileage, and the car drives exactly as it should. With prices of Aston V8s rising steadily this represents a great opportunity to acquire a much loved and very attractive example.
A simply amazing Daytona... This example has covered a mere 8,500 miles from new. The original matching-numbers engine has been fully maintained by Daytona specialists over the years. Due to the fact that it is still essentially a factory-fresh Ferrari-built but run in motor, it unleashes its power with the particular ease that made the Daytona the legend it is. Driving this example, it is easy to believe it was the fastest production car on the planet for many years. The car has never been neglected and had to be “brought back” to pristine condition as many cars have; it has remained a prize possession continually during its 46-year life. It has been the subject of considerable recent work to keep it amongst the best presented and driving imaginable. This includes a colour change back to Blu Dino Metallizato (it’s original colour when new) and interior re-trim to exacting standards using the correct Connolly hides, both carried out by ourselves four years ago. Electric power steering was fitted at the same time. Mechanical works recently carried out include full suspension restoration, new clutch and servicing by marque specialists. Fitted with optional Boranni wheels, however, the original wheels are also included. Only 121 Spyders were produced by the factory, leading to a number of specialists offering conversions to coupe owners. Chassis number 15951 was converted in 1978 by Richard Straman Coachworks in California. Richard Straman was renowned for the exceptional quality and accuracy of his work, and this example was completed to exacting standards. The overall excellence of the metalwork on the body was evidenced when we repainted the car in 2013 (photos on file). Our MD, Iain Tyrrell has inspected a number of Spyder conversions over the years for clients, and this is by far the best executed example he has seen. A stunning car that is ready to enjoy.
This unique XP-CR1 IRL Sports Prototype is based around the Aquila CR1 concept but features a powerful ex-Indy Car IRL V8 racing engine delivering over 600 HP at the rear wheels. The car has been equipped with the latest in race proven engine, gearbox and power management systems. Highly competitive and cost effective to operate the XP-CR1 IRL can be used in the BRITCAR Dunlop Prototype or other similar series. Alternatively it would be the ultimate track day car! Developed by SSE-4 Engineering in Australia to meet FIA safety standards, prepared by Advanced Motorsport & Engineering in the UK and supplied freshly prepared with an extensive equipment and spares package, the car is ready to race. With a staggering 630bhp at 11,500RPM (detuned to around 603bhp as measured at the rear wheels at 10,000 RPM for extended serviceability) and weighing only 900KG and with over 900KG of downforce at 150mph the car is stunningly quick. 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.
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.

A stunning example which is ideal for Spa, Goodwood, pre-1966 GT and other prestigious events worldwide.
This 88" Series 1 is in superb condition, following a comprehensive chassis up restoration by specialists, during which all bodywork was removed, stripped and repaired as necessary. The bumper and window frames were galvanised, and all the body panels prepared and painted individually prior to final assembly. The 2.0-litre petrol engine was fully overhauled by historic engine specialist Agra Engineering and the gearbox stripped and checked. The list of new items fitted includes: clutch assembly, exhaust system, brakes, front springs and hood. The car has also been fully rewired with the correct period-style wiring loom. Very few miles have been covered since the restoration was completed in 2014. According to the Heritage Certificate, chassis 116-8-00655 began life with a diesel engine but has since been converted to petrol power and performs exceptionally well. The history file includes detailed invoices and extensive photos of the restoration work, together with magazine articles featuring the car.

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.

Chassis 002 was run by Dick Barbour Racing. Competed at circuits such as Le Mans, Jarama, Mosport and Laguna Seca by a range of drivers including Didier de Radigues and Eric Van De Poele. Subsequently owned by Fred Goddard Racing the car eventually went to Nicholson McLaren engines, who installed a Cosworth XB engine. The XB has since been removed and the car is offered as a rolling chassis with gearbox, with a significant spares package including 27 wheels (some unused), two spare gearboxes, two casings and a full set of moulds and patterns. Eligible for historic racing in the US (including the Daytona Historic) and also for the proposed European sprint series.
