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.
When we visited Frontline Developments back in 2012 we were very impressed with what we saw (further details can be found in the archive section of our News page). We are therefore delighted to be offering a lovely low mileage MGB LE50 for sale. Purchased from Frontline by the current owner in October 2014 this is the rare and desirable 'PLUS' version which has the following extensive specification: •Seamless body •Heated front and rear screens •Two speed wipers •Electric windows •Central locking •Satellite navigation •Radio with iPod capability •Chrome wire wheels •Four wheel disc brakes •Frontline suspension to front and rear •Single box exhaust •Mazda 2 litre engine with six speed Mazda gearbox •Leather bound Wilton carpets •Connolly leather heated seats •Motolita steering wheel •Cruise control •Air conditioning •Limited slip differential This beautifully made car is an extremely impressive performer, with a power to weight ratio of 253 bhp/tonne producing a 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 160 mph. The LE50 has received rave reviews in the press, and this is a rare opportunity to purchase a one-owner car which has been lovingly cared for and travelled only 9,400 miles since built. Please note that the private plate currently fitted is to be replaced with a period correct H suffix plate.
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 Mercedes Benz SL60 was a low production AMG variant SL and was the flagship of the range. Its enormously powerful and ultra-smooth 6-litre V8 engine delivered ferocious performance which could be enjoyed from the luxury cabin for which Mercedes-Benz are renowned. Only 49 right-hand drive cars were produced and they have become very collectable. Supplied to its one previous owner in March 1997 at a cost of £103,579 this stunning SL60 has a comprehensive specification including AMG sports suspension with 18" alloys, full AMG body kit and heated seats. Beautifully presented in brilliant silver metallic with grey leather interior, the SL has clearly been well cared for and has full Mercedes Benz service history. Please note that the private plate shown will not be sold with the car, which will be reverting to its original registration. Fabulous to drive and a rare opportunity.
• Recent body restoration • Rare factory manuals and sales brochure • Only 2 previous owners A step change for Mercedes from the 190 to 230 SL meant a complete refresh on the chassis with safety paramount and a more powerful engine, creating desirable roadsters which have become increasingly collectible in recent years. Our 230SL is presented as you would expect, having had only 3 owners in over 50years. The most recent owner commissioned an extensive body restoration, whilst maintaining the original trim and brightwork. This work is documented on two discs. The car drives extremely well, with effortless changes from the auto box, and has both soft and hard top hood options. A Becker Mexico stereo/satnav has been installed keeping period looks while providing modern sound and helpful directions. Set on period correct white wall tyres. As part of a larger collection this car has been used sparingly by the owner since restoration.
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 original 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.
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.

This stunning 3.0 Carrera RS is based on a matching numbers 1980 SC. Much of the conversion work was carried out by Fenn Lane Motorsport in 2011/12, and included steel wheel arches, lightweight front and rear bumpers, ducktail and lightweight RS interior with full aluminium roll cage. The condition of the original car was such that only mild restoration was required as part of this process. At the same time a sunroof out panel was fitted and the entire body was stripped and repainted in the original colour of Grand Prix white. The 3,000cc engine is estimated to produce 220-230 bhp and has a 9 bolt crank and an RS lightweight flywheel. Fitted with Zenith carburettors with 34mm venturis on magnesium manifolds and running MSD ignition. Sport exhaust manifold with RS style silencer. Original/rebuilt 915 gearbox with Helix competition clutch.

Competition fuse and relay box with new front and rear looms. Works style 'Pallas' spot lamps and unique Vitaloni mirrors. Although beautifully presented in 'Almeras Freres' colour scheme, with period rally and scrutineering stickers, this painstakingly rebuilt car has never been raced or rallied and is fully road legal and useable. Please contact us for a comprehensive specification.
Known as the Daytona after Ferrari took 1,2 & 3 in 1967 race, the Pininfarina designed 365 GTB/4 once more wowed the press at its Paris Salon launch in 1968. Its sonorous V12 engine and short tail styling made the car driveable and desirable in one. Only 1,300 Daytonas were produced, of which as few as 158 were UK RHD cars. Furthermore this car is one of only six UK cars produced in this colour scheme….making it a rare Prancing Horse. Maranello Concessionaires fitted the extra boot badge and side lights at delivery. Originally ordered for Mr Stewart of Glasgow, this lovely example was then owned for over 30 years by Mike Sandford, connected to the Maserati importers at the time, and driven sparingly until Iain Tyrrell bought it for the first time with 19,000 miles. At CCC it is truly an 'old friend' as we sold this car in 2005, 2006 and then 2012. After returning it to Blu Chiaro Metallizzato and a mechanical overhaul, including fitment of discreet switchable electric power steering, it was driven in the exclusive Italia Classica event in Italy by the previous owner. Complete with Ferrari Classiche Red Book, original leather wallet and service books, tool roll, factory order correspondence and huge history file with every MOT, together with numerous copy invoices including a replacement exhaust system in 2012 and recent service in January 2016 at specialists Bob Houghton. A rare opportunity to purchase such a low mileage/low owner RHD Daytona in superb condition throughout.
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.

In 1963 the all-new 600 model was launched at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. Representing the very best of Mercedes-Benz automotive engineering and technology, the 600 featured a fuel-injected overhead camshaft 6.3 litre V8 engine, air suspension with variable ride control, all-round disc brakes, power steering and central locking, not to mention a high-pressure oil system for all sorts of adjustments and controls. Over half a century later these cars still represent an ultimate. Even the 21st. Century Maybach, a brand re-invented by Mercedes to be the best of the best, cannot approach the 600 "Grosser" for sheer presence. Due to its immense cachet, the 600 is more "filmic" than any other car made. The model has enjoyed cameo roles in more movies from 1963 to the present than any other. As is widely publicised, the list of owners is like a who's-who in itself. Only 2,677 LHD and RHD examples were made, of which 2,190 were four-door saloons, 428 were Pullman limousines and 59 were Landaulets. This 600 Short Wheel Base Limousine represents something of a "sweet spot" specification-wise when ordered new. It was first registered to Barclay Hotels Ltd of 2 Hyde Park Place, London, in April 1971. We can only assume that the company required a luxurious car to ferry around its important guests, and this car would certainly have fitted the bill. To put this into perspective, the 600 cost between 25 and 30 percent more than the equivalent new Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. What attracted us to this 600 when we first saw it was its remarkable originality and potential. It is an unmolested, "honest" car. Much of the paintwork, brightwork, woodwork and the entire interior are original from 1971. The team here have taken this lovely largely unspoilt "canvas" and turned it into the great 600 we have now. The complexity of these cars is simply staggering; even the lowly water pump on the engine is a highly complex bit of kit, with a turbine thermostatically controlled by circulating engine oil governing the fan. Many components on a 600 are like this. Here is a brief list of recent works done in our workshop:- -Overhaul of air suspension inc. 4x airbags, all height control valves and main valve block. Adjust ride heights to factory specifications. -Overhaul of water pump and full drivebelt replacement. -Service and adjustment of "comfort hydraulic" system parts as needed. -Overhaul of steering box. -Full engine and injection service and set-up. Starts "on the button" as it should. So many 600's are huge bills waiting to happen, but when they are running properly as this one is, they are a marvel to drive and ride in. Due to its originality, this car is not in 100% Concours condition; the leather seats for example have no tears or creases even after 45 years, but are not freshly restored. If you want a 600 with much correctly focussed recent work where it counts on these cars, not just a shiny paint job, then this is the car for you.
-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.
Pristine condition, highly desirable 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.
The Jalpa was a development of the earlier Silhouette intended to fill the role of a more ‘affordable’ Lamborghini, being much less expensive than the flagship Countach and being also designed by Bertone. Compared to the Countach, the Jalpa was designed to be much easier to drive, having better visibility and being more tractable in heavy traffic and at slow speeds. Fitted with a 3.5 litre double overhead camshaft version of the V8 engine used in the Silhouette, producing 255 bhp. Only 420 Jalpas were made between 1982 and 1988 of which just 35 were RHD, making this a very rare car indeed. Furthermore this lovely example has travelled only 50,000 kms from new, having spent some time in a private collection in the Channel Islands. Well maintained by specialists and ready to enjoy. Please note the registration is NOT INCLUDED in the sale.
Originally delivered under registration plate 5678 JW to Mr J H Kartz of Benson Bond Ltd, Erdington 19th May 1961 as Caribbean Blue trimmed in white gold Connolly hide with extras listed as chrome wheels and overdrive. Duplicate buff log book shows it moving from the Midlands to Gordon James Withers in Putney, London in 1966, then in the 1980s had a brief spell in Ontario, before returning to the UK in 1989. In 2000 Aston specialist Johnathan M Wardle in Staffordshire was commissioned to rebuild the engine, gearbox and braking systems with detailed invoices totalling £30k. With only 1,110 DB4s manufactured across all 5 series, prices of DB4s are going skywards, we are delighted to offer this most useable series 3 DB4. Two large history files from its last owner of 20 years, show extensive mechanical attention. With options to drive or improve, this great driving Aston certainly represents investment with prices of restored cars in excess of £500k.
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 correct 1956 date of registration on V5C document.
This sensational street legal race Mustang has recently been the subject of a complete bare shell nut and bolt restoration. It has a comprehensive specification and is ready for race and/or road use. During the restoration the body was completely stripped and soda blasted back to bare metal. Over 1500 hours were spent making the body even better than the day it rolled out of the factory. Every panel has been given endless attention to make sure it was right, and the lines of the car are second to none. The engine is a race built small block 302 Ford, dyno'd at 372 bhp with a four barrel Holley, installed in one of the best looking Mustang engine bays ever. Cooling is handled by a custom made aluminium radiator with twin fans, with a Mocal Oil cooler below. The fuel is housed in an ARP fuel cell fed with Aeroquip hosing. The impressive specification also includes a Tremec 5 speed manual gearbox, McLeod twin plate clutch, Moser 9" Tru Trac rear axle with new disc brakes, complete Stage 3 Cobra Automotive race front disc brakes & suspension and Stage 3 rear race suspension with slider mounts. The car also has a new Painless wiring loom with new Autometer gauges and an HRT aluminium engine brace system. The interior of the car is fully stripped out, and incorporates a six point certificated roll cage and a new race seat and four point race harness. There is provision for a second seat and harness and the car is fully road legal and MOT'd. Eligible for race series such as CSCC Swinging Sixties or AMOC Intermarque; also an ideal Tour Brittania or track day car......yet also immaculate enough for shows.
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.

Further works followed at Aston specialists and most recently the car has had extensive chassis restoration. Following this work this lovely Aston appeared at the 2013 Regent Motor Show London and the AMOC Concours at Hampton Court Palace in 2014.
Chassis number BB49KT79413 was built in April 1970 and subsequently had a distinguished motorsport career in South Africa. Converted for race use by Lambert, Harry and Roelof Fekken, it was campaigned throughout the 70s and competed in the Springbok series. The car was then little used until being completely rebuilt by Harp Motorsport in 2008, who were able to retain the original rustfree shell and many of its original parts which had been preserved through being kept in such a dry climate.

Crosslé was a major force in Formula Ford through 1970's, winning the Allied Polymer British FF2000 Championship in 1975 and 1976 with its first design for the 2-litre class, the 31F. The 33F followed in 1977, driven by Desiré Wilson amongst others. Twenty eight 33F were built in 1977/78 and this is chassis 33F-78-24. Having acquired this car in 2013 as a stalled project, Crosslé Car Company carried out a factory restoration from chassis to completion. The car includes many new parts, manufactured at the same factory at Rory's Wood where the 33F first took shape, and is presented virtually as-new but in full original specification. Many 33F found their way to the Netherlands, winning the Dutch championship in 1977. This car is presented with original GRAKU split-rim wheel centres, made in Holland and restored together with new rims. The car comes complete with reconditioned Hewland Mk9 gearbox and engine by Stephen Patton, winner of the 2014 WHT, recently dyno tested and unused since. Ready to race, with brand new equipment including Avon slicks, fire extinguisher and harness. The car needs nothing, other than a new owner to compete at the front in Historic Formula Ford 2000.
