Hilton and Moss are pleased to be able to present this unrestored example of a LHD Mercedes W180 220S 'Ponton' Cabriolet. The car was brought to us in a stripped-down condition after having been in the hands of another restorer for many years, who had failed to make progress with the project. Our client had wished to carry out a full restoration, however, he has subsequently run out of funds to complete the project and would like to sell the car in its current condition as-is. The car is largely complete, with both axles, engine, gearbox, radiator, most of the drivetrain and most of the interior present, although requiring re-assembly. There area a small number of components to be sourced as the originals are either missing or un-serviceable, of which we have a full list. With just shy of 3,500 coupe and cabriolet W180 220S Pontons produced, compared to over 55,000 saloons, the range-topping 220S cabriolet is the rarest and most desirable of the W180 chassis code. This presents a unique opportunity to acquire a rare car in an unrestored condition, and as such allows a prospective buyer to complete the car to their own specification and taste. With the rapidly increasing price of th

The Lotus Evora 400 is the fastest Lotus road car of the New Millennium. Its lightweight chassis has been lowered and widened to make cockpit entry and exit to the 2+2 composite body easy. The Evora 400 exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity so succinctly. Despite producing 400 hp (406 ps) from its 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine, with its comfortable cabin displaying many new features, the overall kerbweight of the Evora 400 has been reduced by 42 kg over its forebear. As a result, its exquisite power to weight ratio, combined with an aerodynamic package that maintains zero lift but increases downforce at high speeds, simply enhances its supercar appeal. The exquisite 3.5-litre V6 engine has been modified significantly to achieve the supercar performance of the Evora 400. Its induction system has been supplemented by a revised supercharger and a water-to-air chargecooler, that raises power to an outstanding 400 hp (406 ps). Select the first of the its six, close-ratio, manual gears and the acceleration is viscerally exciting. In fact, the automatic version is even swifter off the mark, its performance sharpened by the Race setting in the Dynamic Performance Manag

As featured in Evo Magazine.... The Sport 190 was concieved as an Elise race car for the road. Described by EVO magazine as: "The trick - and it's a very neat one - that Lotus has pulled off with the Sport 190 is to create as near-as-dammit a race car that doesn't bully or intimidate the inexperienced or hesitant driver, but flatters their abilities. In the hands of talented helmsmen it should be pretty much uncatchable on your average track day." Finished in Quartz Silver paint and a matching hardtop. This exceptionally rare and very special Lotus Elise Sport 190 is number 009 of only 33 built & has only ever been looked after by Lotus Motorsport themselves at Hethel - full history from new & only 1 owner. This is a very quick car indeed that has had many thousands of pounds lavished up on it.

The Triumph TR3 was built between 1955 and 1957 during which time only 1286 cars were produced for the home market. According to the TR Register, as of 2002, there remains only 893 registered TR3/3A's on UK roads. The TR3-B is an unofficial name given nowadays to the final version of the TR3 which was produced in 1962. It was offered concurrent with the TR4 which started production in 1961 and was a special short-production run in response to dealer concerns that the buying public might not welcome the TR4. It had the body of the later TR3-A and two series were produced, one with a commission number preceeded by 'TSF' of which 530 were produced and one with commission numbers preceeded by the TCF of which 2,804 were produced. The TSF series were identical to the last run of TR3A's and the TCF series had the 2.2 litre, TR4 engine. It also had different headlight rims, a wider grille and door handles. This stunning example has been totally restored in 2013 with such fundamental elements such as the body, frame, chassis interior and engine all recieving due attention. The frame and suspension particularly has been sand-blasted and painted. She sits on new chrome wire wheels and benefi
