1963 ALFA ROMEO GIULIA SS Alfa Romeo, Italy's oldest sporting marque, has been building cars since 1910. They produced some of the greatest machinery ever to be seen pre-war, such as the beautiful 1750 Zagato roadsters, the magnificent Monzas and the mighty P3 Grand Prix cars. With the advent of the 1950s Alfa Romeo was forced to rationalise its production in order to survive financially. Unable to resist the occasional indulgence, however, they still built some exceptional competition and 'limited edition' high performance models. One such car was the Sprint Speciale series, appearing first in 1957 with the 1,290cc Giulietta engine and then in 1963 with the more powerful 1,570cc Giulia unit. The streamlined bodywork bore a marked resemblance to some of the marque's earlier competition designs, particularly the famous Disco Volante sports-racer, not to mention the BAT 9 show car. With an all-up weight of under 950kgs, a five-speed gearbox and an output of ll2bhp (in Giulia form) they made excellent road cars and were equally used in competition. Only 1,366 examples of the Sprint Speciale were built before production stopped in 1965. Ours really is an exceptional example of this, now terribly rare, sports car. The accompanying file contains invoices and correspondence detailing tens of thousands of pounds worth of renovation and maintenance. To inspect and drive the car today, is to understand that not a penny was wasted. This is one of the very best that we have encountered.
1975 ALFA ROMEO MONTREAL Stylish, elegant and distinctive, the Montreal derived its name from the site of its debut at the 1967 World's Fair an event which celebrated Canada's centenary. With a capacity of 2,593cc, the sweet-revving V8 featured twin overhead camshafts per bank and produced, via Alfa Romeo/Spica fuel injection and electronic ignition, 200bhp and 173lb.ft at 6,500rpm and 4,750rpm respectively; mated to a five-speed gearbox, this provided strong performance with a 137mph maximum speed and 0-60mph in just 7.6 seconds. Under the svelte Bertone-designed 2+2 coupé coachwork, independent coil spring front suspension, a live coil-sprung rear axle, limited slip differential and ventilated disc brakes; the result was sure-footed roadholding and ample braking in keeping with the Montreal's high performance. Inside the stylish interior the seats had built-in adjustable headrests while an unusual feature was vacuum-operated headlamp stoneguards. In performance, design and engineering, the Montreal was knocking on the door of the supercar fraternity, whilst at the same time holding on to its GT credentials. . The whole interior of the car shows elegance and sophistication, with handsome functional seats, easily reachable controls and, very advanced for the era, an anti-glare dashboard. This fine example was registered in 1975 and the care taken in its maintenance is reflected in its attractive appearance, as well as its exemplary road manners. A substantial history file documents expenditure in recent years. A rare opportunity to own a classic Italian sports coupe, one now very much coming to be considered a true collector's item.
1972 FERRARI DINO 246 GT RHD As Ferrari’s first production car to boast a V-6 engine and rear-mid engine placement, it can be argued that the Dino was the most important Ferrari ever produced to never sport a Ferrari badge (save for the prancing horse on its data tag). Nevertheless, there’s no doubt that this little Ferrari was near and dear to Enzo’s heart, as it was in part a tribute to his late son, Alfredo, or “Dino,” as he was known to his family. Educated as an engineer and with a passion for racing, Dino suggested to his father that Ferrari should consider utilizing V-6 engines in their racing cars. Sadly, Dino never lived to see his idea come to fruition, but there is no doubt that he would have been proud of the 246 Dino. The car offered here is an exceptional example, having seen considerable expenditure over a prolonged period, with much supporting documentation in the accompanying file. Beautifully presented in quintessential Ferrari red over a tan interior. Inspection, at the earliest possible opportunity, is highly recommended. Rarely do cars of this obvious quality come to the market and this one will surely be snapped up by the first knowledgeable enquirer.
1968 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SE Convertible This extremely rare and exceptionally original Mercedes-Benz 300SE convertible has only covered 53,000 original miles and is one of the very last of this flagship model built, as the 300 SE was discontinued in late 1967 and this motor car was first registered in Jersey in January 1968.The car is completely genuine, sharing the engine with the beautiful 300SL Gullwing, this example would be a prize exhibit in a motor museum as it is definitely one of the very best, most original and correct examples in existence. The car represents impeccable value for money when compared to the 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet, the model which superseded the 300 but still used the same floor pan, body and interior etc.The 300SE employed a fuel-injected version of Mercedes-Benz's new, overhead-camshaft, seven-bearing 'six' displacing 2,996cc and developing 170bhp (DIN) at 5,400rpm.The rear suspension featured Mercedes-Benz's hydro-pneumatic self-levelling system. Thus equipped, the 300SE was good for 120mph. When the 280SE ceased production in 1971, its passing marked the end of this long-established bodystyle.Today all these classic Cabriolets are highly sought after and the example offered here is perhaps the finest it has ever been our pleasure to own.Finished in surely the most stylish colour combination imaginable of Moss Green with Cognac leather interior complemented with a Tan mohair hood and with the much preferred automatic gearbox, here is a surprisingly driveable classic, offering the most advanced technology of it’s era with the last word in chic styling.Presented complete with the factory issue book-pack as well as the original buff log book. The file also contains a copy of the Summer 2015 edition of Classic Mercedes Magazine, featuring AUB 243E as the subject of the front cover story.
1972 FERRARI DINO 246GT LEFT HAND DRIVE Many consider the Dino to be one of Ferrari’s greatest cars, not only for its looks but also for the wonderful driving experience it provides. The Dino helped Ferrari realize that rear-mid-engined cars were here to stay, and it spawned a wonderful series of cars that continues through today as Ferrari’s most popular line of sports cars. Beautifully restored, this Dino GT truly needs nothing and is ready to be enjoyed as Dino intended. Briefly, the technical specification is as follows; 195 hp, 2,418 cc DOHC V-6 engine with three Weber 40 DCN F/7 carburetors, five-speed manual transaxle, front and rear unequal-length A-arm suspension with coil springs and anti-roll bars, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 92.1 in. Our car, which is an E-series 246 GT Dino, was originally delivered to the United States.

The odometer currently shows 76,950 miles, which are believed to be original. Offered with a set of manuals, jack, and tool kit and accompanied by an extensive file that appears to chronicle a large portion of its life, containing service and restoration receipts, along with numerous photographs. Many consider the Dino to be one of Ferrari’s greatest cars, not only for its looks but also for the wonderful driving experience it provides. The Dino helped Ferrari realize that rear-mid-engined cars were here to stay, and it spawned a wonderful series of cars that continues through today as Ferrari’s most popular line of sports cars. Beautifully restored, this Dino GT truly needs nothing and is ready to be enjoyed.
1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II Drophead Coupe Adaptation by H.J.Mulliner - Countryman by Harold Radford Of the 107 Drophead Coupe Adaptations built to style number 7504, chassis number SXC465 is the only one known to have been built with London coachbuilder Harold Radford’s special Countryman Touring accoutrements, more often fitted to four door cars and the occasional custom-built shooting brake. Amongst the most elegant post-war bodies created for Rolls-Royce was the Silver Cloud II Drophead Coupe by H.J. Mulliner, design number 7504. The car was known as an “Adaptation,” and it was created using a factory standard steel saloon body that had been modified into a convertible by removing the steel top, fitting two doors in place of the usual four, and adding a modified chromed waistline molding. So extensive were Mulliner’s modifications that the resulting car was, in its every detail, essentially fully coachbuilt. Radford’s Countryman package was intended to make our Rolls-Royce suitable for extended journeys “into the rough” by providing all of the comforts of home for its well-to-do passengers; The trip might begin at home by filling the capacious boot, with a specially built, expanded lid, with supplies for the journey. What can not fit into the boot may be stowed in four pieces of bespoke Antler luggage, stored atop the fold-flat rear seat behind the driver and passenger. Special cubbyholes hidden throughout the interior house magazine racks, cosmetics for the lady, and a notebook. Upon arrival at his destination, occupants might unpack from the boot and unfold a small table, suitable for cards or dining for two, seated on a pair of “toadstool seats,” small stools attachable to the rear bumper overriders. The result was a completely comfortable spot for a gentleman and friend to enjoy the spoils picked up at Harrods’, Fortnum & Mason, or ones preferred provisioner, before leaving London. In equal measure; a fine automobile, as well as an essential lifestyle accessory for the sporting outdoors-person in addition to representing a sound investment for the future. Interested parties are urged to give the very highest priority to viewing. Please telephone for an appointment.
The AC Cobra is without any doubt the most sought after classic super Sportscar. The combination of a beautifully designed tubular chassis by Tojeiro, an ultra-light aluminium Italian Barchetta style body and Carroll Shelby’s genius idea to shoe-horn into the chassis the very strong and reliable Ford V8 small block engine was the initial recipe. From the original versions (MKI MKII and MKIII), built between 1962 and 1967, only approximately 1,000 were produced, but fetch today on the collectors car market astronomical prices !Petrol crises and world events sadly led to the bankruptcy of AC in the late seventies. The company’s tooling and eventually the right to use the name, were acquired by Autokraft, a Cobra specialist and car manufacturer owned by Brian A. Angliss. In agreement with Carroll Shelby and the Ford Motor Company, the last version MKIII car, of which only 327 were produced in the sixties, would appear again in 1982 with some modifications as the Autokraft MKIV, in essence an AC MKIII car with a 5.0L V8 and a Borg Warner T5 Transmission.These MKIV AC Cobra's must not be confused with any of the replica Cobra's out there. They are built to the very highest standards and are totally authentic, hand made, aluminium bodied cars built on the original bucks etc from AC Cars in the seventies. The engines were sourced from Ford USA and indeed the Ford Motor Company went into business with Brian Anglis, Autokraft, to collaborate in the production. This stunning example is finished in Raven Black with Black alloy wheels, chrome bumpers and a Tobacco leather interior. Purists will be quick to note that the interior is noticeably more luxurious than that of an early Shelby Cobra, benefitting from a stereo system with a CD player, leather trim, and seats with headrests. The car is fitted with Ford’s tried-and-true 225-brake horsepower, 5.0-litre engine with EFI, which is mated to a five-speed manual transmission.As the Mk IV offers a handful of welcome updates over the original Shelby Cobras, it makes for a wonderful driver’s car, providing ample amounts of both power and additional comfort. These cars are seldom seen in Europe, and this example would be the perfect stablemate to an original 289 or 427, or it can also be driven and enjoyed with ease and reliability. As it bears the AC name and was produced using many of the same tools and techniques as the originals, the Mk IV represents an interesting period in Shelby and AC history, and this extremely fine example would make for an excellent wind in the hair, long distance sports tourer.Available for viewing in our Kew showrooms.
1987 ASTON MARTIN V8 ZAGATO COUPE Announced at Geneva the Zagato bodied V8 was warmly received. Just 52 Coupes were manufactured during a production period ending in 1990. Notwithstanding the importance of the pedigree coachwork and the value implicit in the scarcity of examples offered for sale, many agree that the sheer driving pleasure transcends the undoubted investment value. Aficionados of the marque are quick to opine that this is the best driving car that Aston Martin have ever produced. As part of an important private collection since 2008, our car has wanted for nothing. Correctly stored and sparingly used, prior MOT certificates record the mileage advancing slowly to the present figure of just 15500. Immediately available for delivery from our Kew showroom. Early viewing is highly recommended.
1990 FERRARI F40 At its inception Ferrari’s F40, developed from the 288 GTO Evoluzione, smashed through an automotive barrier that had remained untouched, bettering 200 mph by achieving a top speed of 201.4 mph. Taking inspiration from the Formula One team and following the tried-and-true formula of “less is more” in order to make it as lightweight as possible. The F40 had no carpet, utilized door pulls instead of traditional handles, and could be ordered with roll-up or fixed windows (installing power-operated windows was simply out of the question). As a result of these fanatical weight-saving measures, the F40 tipped the scales at a feather-light 2,400 pounds, paving the way for a powerful engine to rocket it into the annals of automotive history. The F40’s engine was based on the 288 GTO’s twin-turbocharged V-8, but it was bored to displace nearly three litres. Following some additional tuning, the engine could produce 478 brake horsepower, making it the most powerful road going Ferrari to date. This engine, combined with its lightweight nature, made the F40’s performance figures just as incredible as its top speed. A sprint from 0 to 60 could take just 3.8 seconds, and the car could be powered onwards to a quarter-mile time in 11.8 seconds. Braking was equally impressive, and the F40 could bring itself to a stop from 60 mph in just 119 feet, if necessary. This example is the much preferred Non-cat’ / non-adjust’ specification. The service record supports a lifetime accumulation of only 5953 Kms (3700 miles), during which the car has wanted for nothing. Replacement belts and tanks comprise part of an invoice totalling some thirty thousand pounds spent during the past weeks. Accompanied by a detailed history file and presented in ready-to-go order, here is a rare opportunity to acquire an iconic Ferrari as the Jewell in the crown of any collection, or the most exhilarating road/track drive imaginable. Available for inspection in Kew today.
1995 FERRARI F512M Distinctive with its rear spoiler our fabulous example is clearly something far beyond the factory F512 M. Close inspection reveals the lowered ride-height, all the better for balance and poise. While the engine note, even at idle, gives away the special exhaust system. Glorious in Rosso Corsa with Nero hide and carpets. On the evidence of condition alone, a scrutineer might easily mistake this 38000Km example for new. The earliest possible viewing is highly recommended.
ISDERA IMPERATOR Produced in tiny numbers during a production span of less than 9 years, ending in 1993, here is a truly exclusive supercar for the connoisseur. In summer 1991, the car was delivered to an authorized ISDERA-dealer in Japan. The car was ordered as a left hand drive, but the exhausts ended at the right side. Only 13 series 2 were ever made, two of them were sold in Japan. The striking gullwing coachwork on a tubular steel chassis is powered by the highly regarded Mercedes-Benz M119 5-Litre V8. The combination of super-lightweight construction and outrageous power, results in astounding performance. From the pilots chair one gains the impression that the quoted figures of 5 seconds to 60 mph and 176mph top speed are somewhat conservative! The reality is performance which feels nothing short of scorching by today’s standards and must have seemed unbelievable in comparison to its contemporaries.At take off, the push-in-the-back sensation, combined with the blurred scenery suddenly rushing past the side-glass, literally takes the breath away. The noise too is jet-like! Born out of the Mercedes-Benz CW311 design experiment of the late 1970’s. Eberhard Schulz, who formerly worked as an engineer for Mercedes-Benz, headed the company that designed the original concept and formed Isdera as his own brand to build supercars.The traditional Silver Arrows paint color chosen for our car, cleverly emphasizes the highlights on the subtle body design with the black hide interior providing a sophisticated contrast. With little more than 500 Km recorded, yet offered in road going order, here is an exceptional opportunity for the discerning collector to bring gravitas to even the most exclusive line up.
1978 PANTHER J72 Founded in 1972 by Robert Jankel, the Panther Westwind Company produced a number of models. Panther cars often resembled bygone classics, but were in no way replicas. These were individually engineered vehicles of exceptional quality which utilised the engine and mechanical components from top line manufacturers. Such was the quality of fabrication and the reliability of mechanics installed that, although few were produced, a very high percentage of Panthers still survive. The J72 resembles the Jaguar SS100 and under the skin the Jaguar comparison is justified by the six cylinder jaguar engine. Designed to be driven with the peace of mind associated with owning a new car but with the esoteric vintage feel. Hand built to the highest quality these coacbuilt sports roadsters have become collectors cars in their own right. Our Left Hand Drive example is very rare as it has the triple carburettor 4.2 Litre E Type straight six Jaguar engine, driving a four speed overdrive gearbox. Finished in Olde English White coachwork with sumptuous Suede Green leather upholstery, this UK registered Panther has enjoyed many years spent in the kinder Spanish climate which has helped to preserve the structure. Now ready for the road following extensive refurbishment; with a replacement clutch and full cockpit re-trim including carpet, leather upholstery & re-veneered instrument panel. Perhaps the best example available for sale anywhere, here is a must-see example of the best of British hand built automobile manufacturing.
2011 FERRARI 599 GTO At the time of the models announcement in 2010 Ferrari claimed that the 599 GTO was their fastest ever road car. The statistics are jaw-dropping! With an engine producing 670 PS (493 kW; 661 bhp) at 8250 rpm and 620 N·m (460 lb·ft) of torque at 6500 rpm. Ferrari claims the 599 GTO can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of over 335 km/h (208 mph). The numbers tell only part of the story. Naturally handling is exemplary and road presence is extraordinary, but in addition is another quality present in only the truly thoroughbred automobile. Impossible to describe but unmistakable when in its presence, we therefore recommend urgent inspection. Our car was delivered new in 2011 and has since covered only 5600 kms (3500 miles). In careful ownership throughout, it remains factory-fresh. The white coachwork appears faultless and the roadwheels uncurbed. The interior too appears untouched, giving no clue at all that the car has been driven. From the driver’s seat the view is as one might expect of a modern Ferrari. Analogue instrumentation displayed on-screen, steering wheel mounted push-button start, slide out infotainment screen featuring sat-navigation, together with paddle shift gear change. Now selling at our Kew showroom for immediate delivery.
FERRARI F512M The F512 M was the final incarnation of the Testarossa type and offered, at last, what many regarded as performance worthy of its position as successor to the Berlinetta Boxer. The M standing for the Italian Modificato, saw the Flat-12-cylinder increase in power to 440bhp, a massive increase over the original Testarossa at 390bhp. The cars stance was lower and the purposeful appearance enhanced by restyled bumpers, round tail lamps and square framed headlamps that are no longer hidden. Distinctive road wheels also identify the M. The cockpit too is enhanced by subtle detail changes; including drilled alloy pedals and a polished shifter with easier to operate gate. Our Left hand drive car is a show stopper; in Rosso Corsa with black hide and carpets. With only 31932 km recorded, it is none the less obvious that the utmost care has been taken, by fastidious owners. The standard of presentation today is quite simply jaw-dropping. Ferrari aficionados regard this model as something of a sleeping giant in the investment stakes, now trending towards substantial gains in line with its cousins from the 1960’s & 70’s. Early inspection is essential.
Ferrari Enzo Offered here is an immaculate Enzo which has been fastidiously maintained throughout its life by its two enthusiast owners. Having covered a mere 5,500 kilometres from new and with the service records to prove its maintenace history. Our Enzo was supplied new in Italy and was then purchased by a Japanese collector who handled the car as though it was a priceless gem. Supplied with UK Registration, the car has been Classische certified by Ferrari testifying to its outstanding provenance. Just arrived in our Kew showroom.
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud IIDrophead HJ Mulliner Adaptation The launch of the Silver Cloud II saw Rolls-Royce take a very significant step forward in the performance stakes. This newly developed V8 engine, constructed mainly in aluminium and featuring hydraulic tappets to ensure quiet running, produced nearly 25% more power than the motor it replaced. In the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II was a motor car capable of long distance touring at far higher cruising speeds than had ever been available before. The vast majority of cars produced between late 1959 and early 1962 were the factory design, universally referred to as the Standard Steel Saloon. A very limited number of cars however were modified at the Chiswick works of HJ Mulliner to Design Number 7504. Retaining the basic line of the coachwork in the form of an exceedingly elegant drophead coupe. Correctly termed “Adaptation By HJ Mulliner” these highly exclusive cars are not to be confused with examples that have more recently been converted. The car presented here is one of only 75 original Left Hand Drive Adaptations by HJ Mulliner to leave the Chiswick works. Imported into the United States by Rolls-Royce Inc. and sold via the officially appointed distributor JS Inskip, inc. 304 East 64th Street, New York 21, New York. Rarely available and highly desirable this model has become one of the most sought after post war Rolls-Royce automobiles. Our car has been the subject of meticulous renovation and refurbishment and stands today as one of the finest we have ever had the privilege of offering for sale.
1975 MERCEDES-BENZ 600 SIX-DOOR PULLMAN ONE OF ONLY TWENTY ORIGINAL MB FACTORY DATA CARDS Production of the Mercedes flagship 600 model began in 1964 and continued through to 1981. Production numbers were tiny; in total 304 Pullmans! 124 of these were 6-door examples but fewer than 20 were Right Hand Drive. Exclusivity is the watchword of this model. Highly prized by the glitterati of its era and hugely respected by enthusiasts and collectors today. Believed by many to have been the most stylish limousine ever to have been built. The level of appointment is naturally to the very highest standard available when new; featuring the 600's 150-bar (2,176 psi) hydraulic pressure system, which is silent in operation, powering the windows, seats, boot lid, as well as the door locking mechanism. Adjustable air suspension delivered excellent ride quality and sure handling over any road surface.

Finished in the original specially ordered Magnetite Blue and luxuriously upholstered throughout in its original sumptuous light beige velour with beautiful Burr Walnut veneered woodwork. This is, we believe, the finest example for sale anywhere in the world today. Our magnificent 600 Pullman is an extremely rare UK supplied example which has always been kept in England and throughout its life has mostly been maintained by Merecedes Benz UK or its appointed main agents. The history file contains many service invoices and old MOT certificates confirming the mileage of only 68,000 and testifying to the care and maintenance carried out on the car throughout its life. Cosmetically impeccable, structurally undoubted and crucially, fully functioning in all respects; the air suspension holds good pressure, while all of the power assisted accessories work as they should. Available for inspection here in Kew, surely the first knowledgeable enthusiast to view will buy.
1966 JAGUAR MK2 LHD Production of the MK2 Jaguar ceased in 1967, making our 1966 manufactured car a late example and as such the better for Jaguars policy of ongoing refinement. With the much preferred 3.8 litre engine, automatic transmission and power assisted steering, this is a remarkably modern drive. Indeed, the driving experience is agreeable in every way: Engine start-up is easy from cold and when hot. Gear changes are smooth and the power assisted steering functions correctly. On road test the brakes performed well and all instruments register within tolerance. Cosmetically too the car is striking: chic in Primrose set-off by the refurbished black interior with beautifully finished wood work, it is evident that significant time and expense have been lavished on this cherished car.

Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona Plexiglass Offered here is a matching numbers, 1970 Plexiglass Daytona, fresh from 'The Collection'. It is a LHD finished in Rosso Red and retrimmed with Black leather. Our car was originally supplied in Pino Verdi which today again is an extremely desirable colour. The Plexiglass cars are fast outsripping the later pop up headlight cars in value as they are gaining the recognition they deserve as the original design. The later cars headlights were modified only to satisfy the import laws in the USA, taking away from the ultra modern and unique in the period, plexiglass front covered headlights. This example has had a bare metal resparay, complete retrim in Black leather complemented by new black carpets etc to a very high standard.

1976 Jensen Interceptor III Convertible The iconic Jensen Interceptor is a highly regarded British sporting GT-class motor car. These stunning cars were hand-built at the Kelvin Way Factory in West Bromwich England by Jensen Motors between 1966 and 1976. The Interceptor name had been used previously by Jensen for the Jensen Interceptor made between 1950 and 1957 at the Carters Green factory. Jensen had extensively used glass-reinforced plastic for the fabrication of body panels in the preceding two decades, but the new Interceptor saw a return to a steel body-shell. The body was designed by an outside firm, Carrozzeria Touring of Italy, rather than the in-house staff. The early bodies were built in Italy by Vignale, before Jensen took production in house, making some subtle body modifications. The Interceptor Mark III is probably the most widely known and recognized Jensen found on roads today. In its final form, the Interceptor III represented the pinnacle of Jensen car development. For those thinking about buying a Jensen today, these cars epitomise what Jensen motoring was all about. The Mark III was first introduced in 1971, with a revised front grille, headlamp finishers and bumper treatment. It had GKN alloy wheels and air conditioning as standard, and revised seats too. The 6.3 litre 383ci engine was superseded by the 7.2 litre 440ci in 1971 delivering a new range of torque and power. This magnificent Jensen Interceptor III Convertible is finished in Platinum Silver metallic with Black hide upholstery and complemented with a Black mohair soft top. From the private garage of a Gentleman collector, this exceptional car has been the subject of meticulous attention during his long ownership with invoices amounting up towards a six figure sum throughout its cherished life and remains today in a state of road readiness for everyday driving or some serious continental touring.

Ferrari 512 Testarossa 1800 miles only! An absolutely stunning example, all book and tools and an excellent service history. At only 1800 miles from new this is probably the lowest mileage, right hand drive example in existence. The condition is commensurate with the ultra low mileage having formed part of an important private collection of over fifty cars. The car has never been driven in the rain or in anger. It has been preserved in virtually as new, time warp condition. The Testarossa was one of the poster cars of its era which has for some time been overlooked but has now come back into its own and started to climb rapidly in value. This being quite probably the best right hand drive example available is a blue chip collectors dream. Unique opportunity to buy the very best Ferrari 512 Testarossa.

Ferrari 512BBi 19800 miles only! This is a low mileage 512 BBi, LHD, first registered in1984 and now UK Registered. The car has only travelled 19,800 miles from new and the condition of the whole car is commensurate with the extremely low mileage. Finished in its original livery of Rosso with crema leather interior which is all original and in exceptional order. Our 512 has formed part of an important collection for many years and has always been cherished and maintained by the managers of the collection. Undoubtedly one of the finest examples on offer anywhere, the 512BBi is still way under-valued when compared to other top flight Ferraris. We see the market moving dramatically upwards now on 70's, 80's and some 90's 'modern classics'. Now is the time to buy before you get left behind! Just completed a big service including cam belts. Ferrari Clasische certification in progress. Available for viewing in our Kew showroom.
