  • Lotus Esprit

    £49,995

    The Lotus Esprit Sport 300 was a homologation special which formed the basis of the motorsport icon's first works supported Le Mans entry for over 30 years, and also won the British GT series in 1994. It was a derivative of the Esprit X180R racer which competed successfully in the American SCCA and IMSA series in the early 90s. Originally the company intended to produce 50 units but eventually built 64, in both right and left hand drive form. DVLA records reveal that there are only 3 Sport 300s licenced for the road in the UK, and 4 on SORN. The Sport 300 had a highly impressive specification, making extensive use of composites to shave 80kg from the S4's kerb weight and using a hybrid turbocharger, improved valvegear and recalibrated engine management to increase power output to 302 bhp. Improvements in suspension and braking, wider wheels and aggressive body modifications completed a highly desirable package. Given the rarity of this version and the impressive performance on offer, it is hardly surprising that they have become highly collectable and are rarely available on the open market. This right hand drive example has been the property of its current very enthusiastic owner since 2000, during which time it has travelled an impressive 40,000 miles and been admired at a wide range of Lotus events. It has been regularly maintained by specialists throughout this period, as evidenced by invoices exceeding £13,000 on the history file. However the car has been little used in recent months and, whilst freshly serviced and MOT'd, does have some cosmetic/minor opportunities for improvement. Fabulous to drive and destined to appreciate. Complete with its original handbook, period brochures and road tests and the highly appropriate '300 SP' number plate.

  • Lamborghini Miura

    £999,995

    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 V8

    POA

    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.

  • Ferrari Daytona

    POA

    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.

  • Ferrari Daytona

    £599,995

    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.

  • SPA Judd

    £54,995

    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.

  • Aston Martin DB4

    £399,995

    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 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.

  • Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I

    £299,995

    -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.

Its multi-tubular spaceframe chassis is clothed in aluminium alloy coachwork recreating the style of the original factory cars.

Fitted with a Hewland JFR 5 speed sequential gearbox, AP brakes and fully adjustable supension with Proflex spring damper units. Chassis number 6 has had only 30 hours use from new and has been professionally maintained and upgraded. Rebuilt and enhanced by Martin O'Connell in 2011, including fitment of side impact bars and a thicker Dural floor. Front end modified and strengthened by Track Torque Racing in 2012. The car has also benefitted from modified half-shafts and front wishbones and regular oil and filter changes. Raced successfully by Jeff Hodgson and John Murphy, this one-owner car has never been over-revved or crashed and is in superb condition throughout. Complete with mounted slicks, running spares and a fitted indoor cover. Excellent Brian James RS3 Race Shuttle available by separate negotiation.
