Variant name:S ,Derivative:M145 ,Variant: S This facelift 2009 Maserati GTS is one very beautiful supercar. Presented in Grigio Nero with black leather interior and 20inch special edition alloys, this is an interesting alternative to Maranello’s or Newport Pagnell’s super car coupes. For the 2009 GTS the engine was a new version of Maserati’s Ferrari derived aluminium V8 but with increased bore and stroke increasing displacement to 4.7 litres. An active exhaust with shortcut valves lets you hear and feel every single one of the impressive 433bhp and 361 ft/lb of torque. 0-60 in 4.7 secs and a top speed of 183mph (governed), this is a seriously quick coupe. The sound of the car is as dramatic as the exterior and truly does make your hair stand on end. A tiptronic style automatic six-speed (automated manual) transaxle gearbox is used, supplied by Graziano, this new unit replaces the GT’s ZF six-speed and employs a dry twin-plate clutch. Though not one of the newfangled twin-clutch gearboxes, it has many operating modes, and in the most aggressive the shift time is immeasurable. It is essentially used as a sequential manual gearbox. 360mm brake discs with aluminum bells can bring the car to a grinding halt at a moments notice and she does feel more nimble on the road than you may think This is a very practical car, even perhaps a family car, but this cross continental bruiser is really a choice made with your heart. Who can truly say they have never lusted after a Maserati? Freshly serviced this makes for superb value for money.

Variant name:SPORTS COUPE ,Variant: SPORTS COUPE This particular DB4 Series 2 is on the market with the previous owner, Mr D Banton, having bought the car in December of 1976 and has just undergone a complete restoration through ourselves. DB4/449/R was first registered on the 17th November 1960 where it was sold to a Mrs N Cotton of Bournemouth, then sold to a Mr S Dicks of London in 1965, whereupon it was sold to Mr Richard Butt of Grays who subsequently sold it to his brother, a Mr (Roger) Butt who kept the car until 1976. Mr D Banton used the car regularly in and around London and perhaps more fitting for a car of this style, slightly further afield with trips across Europe to the French Alps for skiing holidays. In 1983 Mr D Banton sent the car for a full bare metal respray, keeping the original colour of Dubonnet Red. Other work includes receipts in the history file dating back to 1976 with hand written invoices from Ian Moss, Aston Martin specialists. Further maintenance was carried out in the late 70’s with bills from Aston Martin and Aston specialist Hyde Vale and later in 1996 with Ian Moss once again. Also in the history file is a copy of the buff log book, handbook and a copy of the original invoice from 1960. The DB4 was a true sports car to the DB5’s Sports GT, and the values are continuing to increase in line with all classic Aston values. The Series 2 cars had some minor modifications over the original design including a front hinged bonnet (rather than the “crocodile” bonnet of the Series 1), uprated front calipers and oil pump and an enlarged sump. Fresh from a full nut and bolt restoration, the car has had a full bare metal respray in Silver Birch, finished with black leather interior. Oselli have rebuilt the engine to 4.2 litre specification with unleaded fuel conversion, whilst lightening and balancing the engine and fitting Cosworth forged pistons. The 4 speed David Brown gearbox has been rebuilt and overdrive fitted. Electric power steering has been retrofitted, in addition to a heated rear windscreen, electronic clock, electric aerial and retro-look radio with iPod connection. It has new wire wheels with period correct Avon Turbosteel tyres, and a larger anti-roll bar to improve cornering and lessen body roll. The car has also had an oil cooler and Kenlowe electric fan installed. A fantastic opportunity to obtain one of the very best Series 2 DB4s on the market today.

Variant name:DHC RHD ,Variant: DHC RHD The XK120 was launched in roadster form at the 1948 London Motor Show as a test bed and show car for the new Jaguar XK engine and caused a sensation persuading William Lyons to put it in production. The name ‘120’ name referred to its top speed, which made it the world’s fastest standard production car at the time of it’s launch. It was available in two convertible versions; first as a roadster, then also as a drophead coupe from 1951. The iconic shape of the XK120 roadster sustains the car’s constant appreciation by classic car enthusiasts. They are eminently usable motorcars and understandably much coveted. Extremely robust, wonderfully reliable and infinitely eye-catching; they are, understandably, one of the most collectable motorcars available today. Manufactured on the 24th November 1953 and dispatched to the Jaguar dealer in Los Angeles, the car was repatriated in 2003, in need of restoration. The body was removed and the car totally rebuilt mechanically including the fitment of a five-speed gearbox, disc brakes all-around and an electric cooling fan. The body was then restored to a high stand and the interior re-trimmed using top-quality leather. The net result of this significant investment is a Jaguar that can be used regularly and one that will enjoy being driven with both ease and enthusiasm, as confirmed by a thoroughly thrilling road test. Supplied with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate and a V5 registration document, this is altogether a brisk, handsome and well-sorted motorcar with enirely thoughtful improvements to vastly enhance the overall driving experience.
Variant name:CONVERTIBLE ,Variant: CONVERTIBLE This car is a late 1990, pre-facelift V12 XJS Cabriolet, presented in gunmetal mica with magnolia hide trim. The vehicle was originally supplied by Appleyard Jaguar of Edinburgh, has had 4 former keepers and has covered only 71,000 miles, with good history. It has its original mohair hood, and is currently in our workshop undergoing light work to raise the car to a fantastic standard. All 5 wheels have been refurbished, with new tyres fitted. The suspension and brakes have been refreshed, along with a full service carried out. Despite the car being largely free of rust, the paintwork was looking tired, so it seemed only right to treat it to a full respray in our professional paint booth, in the car’s original colour. We’ve also refurbished various seat components. The car will also be supplied with its attractive ‘H17 XJS’ registration plate.
Variant name:4.0 ,Variant: 4.0 This is an excellent example of a very rare variant of the iconic Jaguar XJS. In 1992, Jaguar closed the department tasked with manufacturing the ultra luxurious, hand-made Daimler DS420. This left their craftsman facing redundancy unless their skills were used elsewhere – hence ‘Insignia’ was born. This was a bespoke service, allowing prospective buyers to specify an XJ40 or an XJS in various unique colours that were created for the Insignia Collection. You could also specify the trim, wood, wheels etc. – an opportunity to create a vehicle tailored specifically to you. This particular car is one of the best around, having been specced with the majority of the options that were available. Although Jaguar were planning to produce around 200 XJS Insignias, in fact, only 57 were ever produced. Of those, only 7 of the four litre straight six coupes were RHD. This car is one of them, and 1 of 1 in this particular colourway – it is truly unique. A 1993 model, presented in Jaguar Lavender metallic with Lotus white leather interior, and having covered only 48,000 miles – remarkably low for its age – the car is in stunning condition. Without question, one of the most rust free, unmolested examples of an XJS you are ever likely to find. Given the rarity and standard of the car, we couldn’t bear to see the car left with small imperfections, such as car park dents, stone chips etc. Thus, the car has been through our workshop to tidy and freshen up the paintwork, refurbish the wheels etc., which ultimately has brought it up to an excellent standard befitting of its rarity, low miles and originality. The car is also supplied with its attractive K1 XJS numberplate.
Variant name:4.2 ,Variant: 4.2 An unrestored Series 2 E Type Roadster with Matching Numbers. This E-Type was manufactured 02/12/1968, and dispatched from the factory 31/12/1968 to suppling dealer Peter Lindner of Germany. The car’s first owner was an American service man Dr Donald Kahn, when he had finished his tour in Germany the car returned to Birmingham, Alabama, USA with Dr Kahn. While in Alabama the E-Type was maintained by Jaguar specialist Louis England of “The Auto Shop Inc”, right up until it’s transfer of ownership to the second and present owner Roger Oyston in November 1996. The E-Type was duly repatriated back to the UK and registered on 09/04/1997. In its present ownership the E-Type has done less than 3000miles however has been cherished and lavishly maintained with no expense spared, with full documented history, including all of its MOT’s and tax discs, photos, invoices and videos, it was treated to a bare metal respray in 1999 staying with the original colour of Signal Red. Likewise was treated to new stainless steel wire wheels, tyres and spinners only recently. This E-Type has to be one of the best unrestored examples available, included in the sale are numerous spares, one being a brand new rare UK spec differential. Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate.

Variant name:280 SL ,Derivative:W113 ,Variant: 280 SL This is a 1 former keeper, original UK market, RHD 280SL Pagoda – the most desirable specification. The car is currently in bare metal and is coming towards the end of the metal fabrication stage. We will be taking this shell to a number of car shows in 2017 in bare metal, such is the quality of the fabrication work. Our plan is to paint the shell in our signature shade of DB 172 Anthracite Grey Metallic. Once assembled, we are confident this will be the best example of a 280SL Pagoda in the UK. An exciting and enjoyable project to take on for any prospective buyer looking for the very best 280SL.
Variant name:190 SL ,Derivative:W121 ,Variant: 190 SL The most original RHD 190sl in existence? Unearthed in a garage in the north of England, this fabulous car has quite a story. Originally supplied to Rhodesia, South Africa to an Englishman stationed abroad, this fire engine red car was specified with an 050 cremeweiss hardtop to reflect the African sun’s heat. Supplied in 1958 she was his main vehicle until retirement and repatriated with the family in 1986. She was unloaded from the docks in Southampton, from where she was driven by the owner , along with his wife and children, to their new home in England. She was backed into the garage, and the door on the garage closed and that is where she stayed until late 2015 when discovered by us. the term “barn find” or “garage find” is too often applied to a car that has been left in a poor state of repair for many years, but in this instance, the term cannot be more fitting. With junior disprin in the door pocket for the children’s travel sickness or the 30+ year old till receipt from a petrol station on the m1 on its journey home, the car sits as it did back in 1986 including its tax disc!. Transported back to our workshops she underwent a thorough examination of which revealed the most original 190sl we have ever seen. Never repaired or painted, this car requires not one single panel being replaced. The car can be restored and have every single factory panel, spot weld and body piece she was born with. This is a vehicle unlike any other ever seen, and should be restored with the very best care to ensure it becomes the finest 190sl in existence. A bold claim perhaps but a more unmolested, never welded and factory original car surely doesn’t exist, restored well this could well become the benchmark for all other W121s throughout the world. This car is for the connoisseur collector for whom the very best is the minimal standard. Unrepeatable. Talk to us about this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Variant name:230 SL ,Derivative:W113 ,Variant: 230 SL Presented in White with blue interior, this 1965 RHD Mercedes 230SL Pagoda Auto has had an extensive amount of money spent on it in recent years to maintain its excellent condition. Having had recent work completed by an acknowledged Mercedes Pagoda restorer, it has previous invoices totalling over £60k as part of the comprehensive history folder. The car has had an interesting life, having spent some time in France where it was maintained by Mercedes dealer SAGA Les Sables d’Olonne. Recent work includes an engine and gearbox rebuild, full engine bay detail, new front and rear shocks, brake overhaul, corrosion repairs carried out to the inner wings, underseal/rust proofing of the vehicle’s underbody, a respray, some re-chroming, a new hood and interior re-trim. It also benefits from a Becker retro radio having been fitted. Work done in the last two years to restore the vehicle comes nearly £40k. An excellent example of the earliest Pagoda model, in a desirable and iconic colourway. Production of the 230 SL commenced in June 1963 and ended on 5 January 1967. Its chassis was based on the W 111 sedan platform, with a reduced wheelbase by 30 cm (11.8 in), recirculating ball steering (with optional power steering), double wishbone front suspension and an independent single-joint, low-pivot swing rear-axle with transverse compensator spring. The dual-circuit brake system had front disc brakes and power-assisted rear drum brakes. The 230 SL was offered with a 4-speed manual transmission, or an optional, very responsive fluid coupled (no torque converter) 4-speed automatic transmission, which was popular for US models. From May 1966, the ZF S5-20 5-speed manual transmission was available as an additional option, which was particularly popular in Italy. Of the 19,831 230 SLs produced, less than a quarter were sold in the US. The 2,308 cc (2.3 L) M127.II inline-six engine with 150 PS (110 kW; 150 hp) and 196 N·m (145 lb·ft) torque was based on Mercedes-Benz’ venerable M180 inline-six with four main bearings and mechanical Bosch multi-port fuel injection. Mercedes-Benz made a number of modifications to boost its power, including increasing displacement from 2,197 cc (2.2 L), and using a completely new cylinder head with a higher compression ratio (9.3 vs. 8.7), enlarged valves and a modified camshaft. A fuel injection pump with six plungers instead of two was fitted, which allowed placing the nozzles in the cylinder head and “shooting” the fuel through the intake manifold and open valves directly into the combustion chambers. An optional oil-water heat exchanger was also available. Please ring Fraser on 07880 554460/01279 813907 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for any serious enquiries.
Variant name:280 SL ,Derivative:W113 ,Variant: 280 SL Having spent most of its life in the States, this 1969 Mercedes 280SL Pagoda was in a remarkably rust free state – one of the best we’ve ever seen, in fact. Residing in a dry state meant the car was able to avoid the rust problems that often plague classic Mercedes of this era, and we were astonished by the originality of the shell. There were no signs of previous accident damage or previous welding, and even the smallest details were still correct to how they would’ve left the production line – the original seams and spot welds, for example, are still visible; details which are often masked by previous paintwork and body repairs. Taking all these original features into account meant it was quite possibly the best 280SL Pagoda shell we’d ever come across. With the car’s previous owner having spent a considerable sum with us on a full body restoration, repaint in DB180 Silver, full conversion to European spec, new hood and partial interior re-trim, in addition to numerous smaller improvements throughout the car, we relished the opportunity to add it to our stock, as we know the car intimately. The restoration is fully documented with over 400 images, which will be supplied with the car. Of course, to do a full colour change necessitated stripping the car down to a bare shell, and work could then begin to rectify the various dents and bodywork issues that were present across the car. Starting life in USA spec, the decision was made to delete the side markers and change the bumpers, headlights and tail lamps for European spec, in addition to fitting the all important chrome flashing underneath the numberplate. The boot floor was rusted through, so that was cut out and replaced with a new, genuine Mercedes-Benz replacement panel. The radiator and various engine bay components were painted satin black, and the fuel pump and injectors were overhauled. New rubber seals were fitted all round the body, in addition to a new windscreen, new headlamp units, new engine auxiliary belts and new water hoses. The wheels were refurbished and powdercoated, and new period correct, whitewall tyres fitted to them. After fitting new tyres, there would have been little point in leaving the braking system feeling lacklustre, so all 4 calipers were removed from the hubs and overhauled. After re-fit, our attention then turned to improving things aurally. Despite these cars benefiting from a lovely sounding straight six engine, it was essential to be able to provide good quality music for those long drives. We carried out a custom installation of speakers and a retro look modern stereo, including trimming the speakers pods in blue leather to match the interior – it’s the little details that define a Hilton and Moss car. A unique opportunity to purchase one of the most original and honest 280SL Pagodas on the road today, with bodywork having been carried out to an exceptionally high standard. For any serious enquiries, please ring Fraser on 01279 813907/07880 554460, or email email@example.com
