Description 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 reve

Description 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 out 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 operatic and truly does make your hair stand up. A tiptronic style automatic six-speed (automated manual) transaxle 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 discs with aluminum bells haul the car down and she does feel more nimble on the road than you may think This is a very practical
Description This iconic 1962 Jaguar mk2 3.8 Manual overdrive is an opportunity to restore perhaps the most handsome of all sixties British saloons. Originally Green with Tan, the car comes to us complete, and with a running engine. A very successful racer in period, the MK2 3.8 was also the quintessential bank robbers favourite, being practical and spacious, a four door saloon with essentially a race bred engine, very few cars of any type could keep up with a 3.8 MK2 in the 1960’s. Having last been on the road in 2007, she came off of the road to have minor corrosion repair to the usual jacking points and sills, and other light restoration. Due to poor health of the former keeper this was never finished and the car comes to us in need of full body restoration. Many new parts accompany the car, and the interior needs very little work. The car can be commissioned as an original spec restoration, we would suggest into its original green colour, or perhaps she could have modifications mechanically or cosmetically for those wanting to consider delving into classic racing?

Description 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
Description 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 suppli
Description This particular DB4 Series 2 is on the market for the first time in nearly 40 years, 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 an

Description 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,

Description We’re currently completing a restoration of this California spec, LHD 1970 280SL Pagoda with automatic transmission.
