  • 153 - 1954 Triumph TR2 'Long door'

    POA

    The first production road Triumph TR2 left the Triumph works at Canley in August 1953; thereafter production was very slow for several months. Just 250 cars were built prior to 1954 of which only 50 stayed within the UK. At the start of 1954, production increased and TR2s began to dominate the home market. This was due to Triumph's determination that a reasonable proportion would stay in the UK, whereas MG, Morgan and Jaguar were mainly exporting. The early TR2s were sought-after mainly because of their performance, low running costs, availability and low price. Such was the success of the TR2 that in 1954 one entered the famous Mille Miglia event where it came 28th out of 450 starters and in the Le Mans 24 Hours of that year another TR2 came 5th in class. Both results emphasised the strength and performance of the cars. Offered here is an excellent 'long door' example of the marque, well presented with British Racing Green coachwork, complemented by brown leather trim and fawn hood. The car also features a number of optional extras fitted from new, including wire wheels, a heater and an adjustable steering column; details of which can be found on the accompanying heritage certific

  • 144 - 1961 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible

    POA

    Freshly restyled for 1961, Cadillac continued the trend towards cleaner, less fussy styling but there was still plenty of glitz and glamour about the latest model line-up. Notable features included a new-look full-width grille, boldly sculptured side moldings and smaller rear fins. All 1961 Cadillacs rode on a 129.5" wheelbase chassis with just one powertrain option, the 390ci, V8 combined with GM's sophisticated Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Rated at 325hp and fed by a four-barrel Rochester carburettor, the big V8 offered plenty of lazy performance, while power brakes were also standard across the range, retaining the finned rear drums and vacuum-operated parking brake release system introduced the previous season. Lavishly equipped, standard equipment included power steering, an external rear vision mirror, vanity mirror, dual-speed wipers and a choice of no less than eight interior colour combinations. Popular options included power windows, air conditioning, cruise control, power door locking system and six-way power seats. More Americans aspired to own a Cadillac than any other car back in the 1960s and having one parked in the driveway was confirmation you had made it.

    POA

    The Mercedes-Benz R129 models were produced from 1989 through to 2001 and were sold under the SL-Class model name before being replaced by the R230 in 2001. The R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 saloon and featured many innovative details for the time. The fifth generation of the legendary SL series of two-door convertible sports cars featured a fully retractable hardtop that was marketed as the Vario Roof; a first for the SL class, although it had been available on the smaller SLK model since 1997. The flagship models were built by AMG in the form of the SL 55 (a highly tuned version of the SL 500) with each engine individually hand assembled and signed by the technician. This lovely example of the SL 55 AMG is presented in Obsidian Black with Alpaca Grey leather interior; it also enjoys a panoramic glass roof amongst other optional extras. It has only covered a mere 55,000 miles from new with a substantial service history and is in good condition throughout. These luxury sports cars still provide exciting driving, propelled by its fabulous V8 and, with the roof down, it surely still is one of life's great pleasures to drive quickly in the country

  • 134 - 1963 Porsche 356B Coupé

    POA

    Porsche's 356 became a classic the day the first car left the production line and the ensuing years have only enhanced the legend. Continuous updates from the very earliest days of the model and gradual replacement of its early Volkswagen-based components with parts from Porsche manufacture saw to this. These detail changes came frequently but major change was only made when necessary and after due consideration of their effect to improve performance, ride, handling and the marque's enviable reputation of being able to produce sporting motorcars with competition-beating reliability. After a significant updating in 1955 with the 356A, the 356B was introduced in 1960, the firm's most significant evolution yet. Motivated in part by increasingly demanding safety regulations, the 356B had raised stronger bumpers and lifted headlights that noticeably altered the car's frontal appearance. Vent windows in the doors and hinged rear windows enhanced interior ventilation. Up-rated Elfin brakes with cooling fins also benefited from air intakes below the headlights which channels cooling air to the front drums. This Porsche was imported from Oklahoma in 2013 by the vendor who immediately starte

  • 135 - 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250 S

    POA

    Premiered at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1965, the initial model line-up of the W108 consisted of the 250 S, 250 SE, and 300 SE, as well as a sole W109, the 300 SEL. Engines for the new car were carried over from the previous generation but enlarged and refined. The 250 S was the entry-level vehicle fitted with a 2496cm³ Straight-six M108 engine with two dual downdraft carburettors, delivering 130bhp at 5400rpm which accelerated the car to 62mph in 13 seconds and gave a top speed of 113mph. Approximately 130,000 of the 250 S/SE models were built during the first two years of the W108/109's existence. This 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250 S saloon is in very good condition given its 50 years and, although largely original, has little signs of its maturity. The tan interior is complete and in good condition as is the black coachwork and chrome. This example has spent the majority of its life in the south of France and dry stored by the owner in a Mercedes-Benz specialist garage until his passing. He had owned the car for some 48 years before leaving this W108 to his son. We are assured it is mechanically good; starts, runs and should be entirely reliable with the vendor having MoT tested the c

    The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has had ten official versions to date; all use two litre, turbocharged engines and all-wheel drive systems. Originally intended only for Japanese markets, demand led the Evolution series to be offered through Ralliart dealer networks in the UK. The Evolution II was upgraded in December 1993 with handling improvements, wheelbase adjustments and bodywork tweaks. February 1995 saw the arrival of the Evolution III which had more aggressive styling and improved air supply. The Lancer platform was completely changed in 1996 with the engine and transaxle rotated 180° to better balance the weight and eliminate torque steer. The GSR and the RS shared a new twin scroll turbocharger which helped to improve response and increase power. The Evolution VI's changes mainly focused on cooling and engine durability with a larger intercooler and oil cooler, new pistons and new bodywork. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII was modified again in 2003, this time sporting 17" grey Enkei wheels, Brembo Brakes and Bilstein shocks to handle traction and a five-speed manual gearbox with 234hp to the wheels. It was also the first Evolution to be sold in the US spurred by the s

  • 190 - 1989 Porsche 911/930 Turbo Cabriolet

    POA

    In the early 1970s, Porsche had designs on racing a turbocharged version of the 911, in support of which they planned to create a homologation special along the lines of the Carrera 2.7 litre RS. A change in the rules negated the need to sell a precise number of street legal race vehicles, but the company decided to continue with the project anyway - the Porsche 911 Turbo or 930 was born. The 930 was introduced at the Paris Motor Show of 1974 and produced from 1975 to 1989, during which time it was the fastest production car available on the German market. It was based around the Carrera RS 3.0, the engine from which was modified courtesy of turbo technology originally developed for the 917/30 CAN-AM cars. Initially, power output was 260bhp but from 1978 it was increased to 300bhp by raising the engine capacity to 3.3 litres. To accommodate the extra performance over the RS 3.0, the 930 sported revised suspension, larger brakes and a robust, four-speed gearbox. In order to help deliver the power to the road, a rear spoiler was fitted and a wider rear wheel and tyre package was squeezed under specially flared arches. In skilled hands, a 930 will show a clean pair of heels to most of

  • 185 - 1954 Jaguar XK140 SE Roadster

    POA

    The Jaguar XK140 was manufactured between 1954 and 1957 with some 3,276 lefthand drive OTS (open two-seater) models predominantly destined for America and a mere 73 left for the rest of us. It was the successor to Jaguar's highly successful XK120. Upgrades included better brakes, rack and pinion steering, increased suspension travel and modern tube type shock absorbers instead of the older lever arm design. The primary visual change however was the more substantial front and rear bumpers and larger overriders. Another new feature was modern flashing turn signals, operated by a separate switch on the dash. The twin amber lights positioned above the front bumper helped to distinguish the XK140. The front grille size stayed the same but became a one piece cast unit with fewer, thicker vertical slats. The Jaguar badge was fitted to the grille itself, rather than being mounted between the grille and hood/bonnet as on the XK120. A chrome trim strip also extended back over the bonnet and at the rear continued down the centre of the boot lid, where it contained a red shield with the words 'Winner Le Mans 1951-3' inscribed in gold. Repatriated to the UK in late 1980's, this XK140 immediatel

  • 182 - 1965 Bentley S3 Standard Steel Saloon

    POA

    The last Bentley to be built on a separate chassis, in 1962, saw the introduction of the Bentley S3 factory bodied standard steel saloon and, at first glance, it would appear that the all new S3 was merely an S2 with different headlamps. The introduction of the twin headlamps was clearly the most obvious change but the differences did not end there. Further changes included the introduction of smaller bumper overriders and the repositioning of the front indicators and side lamps into one single unit on the front wing resulting in a more attractive appearance. The S3's interior now had individual front seats in place of the split bench seat found in the earlier S-Types and some had air conditioning, electric windows and front seat belts fitted. Mechanically speaking the S3 was the same as the S2 with a 6230cc Rolls-Royce V8 engine and automatic gearbox but this model was fitted with larger carburettors, improved power steering to aid smoother movement at parking speed and a Lucas vacuum-advance distributor to aid fuel consumption making it almost identical in mechanical specification to the S3 Continental that was being produced at the same time.

  • 112 - 1961 BMW Isetta

    POA

    The Isetta is an Italian-designed microcar built under licence in a number of different countries including Germany and the United Kingdom. Produced in the post-war years at a time when cheap, short distance transportation was most needed, it became one of the most successful and influential city cars ever created. Because of its egg-shape and bubble-like windows, it became known as a 'bubble car'; a name then later given to other similar vehicles. In 1955, it was the world's first mass-production car and was the top-selling, single-cylinder car in the world with a total of 161,728 sold. BMW made the Isetta its own, redesigning most of the car so much so that none of the parts between a BMW Isetta Moto Coupé and an Iso Isetta could be interchangeable. While it retained the 'Bubble Window' styling, the BMW version differed from the Italian model in that the headlamps were fixed separately to the sides of the bodywork and it carried the BMW badge below the windscreen. This righthand drive BMW Isetta has been owned by the vendor since 1963 and was used as his daily run around for many years.

  • 120 - 1954 Austin-Healey 100/4 BN1

    POA

    The Austin-Healey 100 was built between 1953 and 1956 by BMC (British Motor Corporation). It was developed by Donald Healey to be produced in-house by Healey's small car company in Warwick and based on the Austin A90 Atlantic mechanics. Healey built a single 'Healey Hundred' for the 1952 London Motor Show and the design impressed Leonard Lord, Managing Director of Austin, so much that a deal was struck with Healey to build it in quantity at Austin's Longbridge factory. The car was renamed the Austin-Healey 100. The '100' name comes from Donald Healey, who selected the name from the car's ability to reach 100mph, as opposed to the Austin-Healey 3000, which is named for its 3000cc engine. The first 100's (series BN1) were equipped with the same 90bhp engines and manual transmission as the stock A90, but the transmission was modified to be a three-speed unit with overdrive on second and top. The 2660cc engine featured an undersquare 87.3mm bore and 111.1mm stroke. Girling 11" drum brakes are fitted all round. Front suspension is independent using coil springs and at the rear is a rigid axle with semi elliptic leaf spring while the steering is by a cam and lever system. A BN1 tested by

    Introduced in 1998, the Porsche 911, with the designation 996 had little in common with its predecessor, with the first new chassis platform since the original 911. Technically, it was a major change, a complete breakaway from the original car other than overall layout and featured the most significant change from the classic 911 series: a water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled unit. Other major changes include a completely new platform having a sleeker body with a more raked windscreen and re-designed interior. The first 996s were available as either a coupé or cabriolet and initially with rear wheel, or later, with four-wheel drive and a 3.4 litre flat six normally aspirated engine, producing 296bhp. This 996 cabriolet was first registered on 15 th June, 1999 and was delivered in the colours of metallic Ocean Blue with Metropole Blue hood and contrasting Savannah full leather. Optional equipment included the sound system, on-board computer and a CDR-22 CD Radio. Today, this presents very well, in fact, it may be described as exceptional given its mileage.

In 1955 however, Graber styled, what was considered to be, a stunningly attractive two-door, pillarless coupé based upon a Grey Lady chassis which could comfortably transport four people with speeds up to 110mph. Although the Swiss firm did body several chassis from Coventry, their design was reproduced by celebrated English coachbuilders, Park Ward, who produced both fixedhead and drophead versions. With a Rolls-Royce standard of finish, the new Alvis quickly magnetised an up-market following which included Prince Philip and Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader CBE, DSO, DFC.

    Known internally as the 964, Porsche's new generation 911 debuted in 1989 and was available in two (Carrera 2) and four-wheel drive (Carrera 4) guises with its familiar silhouette clothing a radically revamped platform. Boasting a drag coefficient of just 0.32 thanks to its deeper bumpers, smoother sills and flatter floorpan, high-speed stability was maintained by a self-deploying rear spoiler which rose above 48mph. Powered by an extensively reworked 3.6 litre air-cooled flat-six equipped with twin spark plugs per cylinder and a re-mapped Bosch Motronic fuel injection, the 964 claimed an impressive 250bhp and 229lbft of torque. Fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, most variants were reputed to be capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds with a top speed of over 160mph.

    The first Porsche 911 was introduced in 1963 as the replacement for the much loved Porsche 356. It has a distinctive design; rear-engined and with independent rear suspension, an evolution of the swing axle on the Porsche 356. The engine was also air-cooled until the introduction of the type 996 in 1998. Since its introduction in 1963, it has undergone continual development although the basic concept has remained little changed. In 1973, the Carrera name was re-introduced from the 356 Carrera which had itself been named after Porsche's class victories in the Carrera Panamericana races in Mexico in the 1950's. The RS was built so that Porsche could enter racing formulae which demanded that a certain minimum number of production cars were made. The most notable advances in 1984 were the introduction of the 3.2 litre engine. With 231bhp on tap, the new 'boxer' motor endowed the Carrera with a level of performance approaching that of the original 911 Turbo of 1974; the bold statistics being a 0-60mph time of 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 152mph.

    The Mercedes-Benz SL class has been manufactured since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German 'Sport Leicht' or 'Sport Light' and was first applied to the 300SL 'Gullwing,' named after the upward-opening doors. The term SL-Class refers to the marketing variations of the vehicle, including the numerous engine configurations spanning five design generations. The Mercedes-Benz R107 and C107 cars were produced from 1971 through to 1989, being the second longest single series ever produced by Mercedes-Benz after the G-Class. The R107 took the chassis components of the mid-size W114 model and mated them to the larger engines from the S-Class (W116) and has become a benchmark of quality throughout the years.

    Originally intended to replace the company's iconic 911, the 928 attempted to combine the power, poise and handling of a sports car with the refinement, comfort and equipment of a luxury saloon. The body, styled by Wolfgang Möbius under guidance of Anatole Lapine, was mainly of galvanized steel but the doors, bonnet and boot were made of aluminium to save weight. Polyurethane elastic bumpers were integrated into the nose and tail and covered in body-coloured plastic; an unusual feature for the time that was intended as both a styling feature and to reduce drag. In 1980, the 928S was introduced with a larger 4.7 litre engine and wider wheels and tyres, whilst in 1987, the engine displacement was further increased to 4957cc with the introduction of the, now highly desirable 928 S4. First registered on 23 rd January, 1987, this UK righthand drive 928 S, with automatic gearbox, is an early example of the S4 model with flip up rear spoiler.

Credited with re-engineering some very special cars over the years, Alpina's approach is often to refine and build on the latent driving and styling characteristics of a standard car, adding a certain Alpina 'magic' that only they can bestow. Their reputation and following are very strong, appealing to discerning buyers who want a special, rare and characterful car. Such are their credentials, that Alpina was recognised by the German Ministry of Transport in 1983 as an 'Automobile Manufacturer' in its own right. In 1985, Alpina formed a partnership with Frank Sytner to establish a UK outlet for Alpina models at the Sytner Nottingham BMW dealership which had been awarded its initial BMW franchise in 1970.

    POA

    Introduced in 3.8-litre form in May 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a major sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. While, inevitably, the car's stupendous straight-line performance and gorgeous looks grabbed the headlines, there was a lot more to the E-Type beneath the skin. The design owed much to that of the racing D-Type. Indeed, the E-Type would be one of the last great sports cars developed directly from a successful competition ancestor. Just as in the D-Type, a monocoque tub formed the main body/chassis structure while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. With a claimed 265 horsepower on tap, the E-Type's performance did not disappoint: firstly, because it weighed around 500lb less than the XK150 and secondly because of experience gained with the D-Type they created one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. Developed from that of the original XK120 sports car and refined in the racing D-Type, the double wishbone, independent front suspension was mounted on the forward s

    If there is an automotive icon of the early 1980s, it has to be the Ford Sierra XR4i with its biplane spoiler. When the Sierra saloon concept was first shown to the public in 1980, it had that spoiler, yet only the XR model used it in production and its production life was short: just 25,662 were sold in two years, 1983-85. Unsurprisingly it never suffered from the crosswind instability for which early Sierras were famed. Best known for its tail-happy handling, it was the last of the great rear-wheel drive V6 grunt Fords, the XR4i was loved by road testers for its mile-eating ability in comfort. Precious few of these icons survive in anything approaching original condition, rust and 'boy racers' having decimated survival levels. It was the exceptional originality of this example that prompted the vendor to buy it, presented in gleaming black paintwork after a cosmetic restoration which included full detail and re-spray in its original factory colour.

    Designated internally as the W180/128, the automotive world dubbed the 1957 Mercedes-Benz 220S and its other year models as "Pontons" due to their resemblance to a pontoon or bridge spanning the engine bay. Offering more style and options than the typical saloons of the day, the 1957 Mercedes 220S Coupés and Cabriolets offered a wealth of options including fitted luggage, whitewall tires, a front bench seat and popular two-tone paint. These were also some of the last Mercedes-Benz that offered a manual transmission. While the larger 300 series autos were more glamorous and exclusive, the 220S was very luxurious for its day. The cars basked in the reflected glory of Mercedes-Benz's legendary return to Grand Prix racing in 1954 (Fangio won back-to-back World Championships) and it's winning of the 1955 World Sports Car Championship. The kudos which surrounded the model range cannot be understated especially since Mercedes-Benz insisted on direct correlations between its road cars and competition cars. It was a decision which paid off as Mercedes-Benz has become an extraordinarily successful company on the back of matchless engineering and build quality. The 220S is part of that tradit

  • 258 - 1976 Triumph Stag

    POA

    Envisioned as a luxury sports car, the Triumph Stag was designed to compete directly with the Mercedes-Benz SL class models. The car started as a styling experiment cut and shaped from a 1963-64 Triumph 2000 pre-production saloon, which had also been styled by Michelotti, and loaned to him by Harry Webster, Director of Engineering at Triumph. Electric windows, power steering and power-assisted brakes were standard. Options included air conditioning, a luggage rack, uprated Koni shock absorbers, floor mats and Lucas Square Eight fog lamps, and a range of aftermarket products, most of which were dealer installed as optional accessories could also be fitted. Rather unusually for a four-seat touring car, the accessory list included a sump protector plate that was never produced. This was probably included as a slightly 'gimmicky' tribute to Triumph's rallying successes. The initial Stag design was based around the saloon's 2.5-litre six cylinder engine, but Harry Webster intended the Stag, large saloons and estate cars to use a new Triumph-designed overhead cam (OHC) 2.5-litre fuel injected V8. This lovely example was the subject of a part restoration in 2015 when it was re-painted in

  • 255 - 1976 Daimler Sovereign Coupé

    POA

    The Daimler Sovereign was a name applied by to a sequence of luxury cars built by Jaguar but carrying the Daimler badge between 1966 and 1983 and were based on contemporary Jaguar body shells, chassis and engines. Jaguar Cars took over The Daimler Company in 1960 and the 1966 Sovereign was the second Daimler to be based on a Jaguar model. Subsequent Sovereigns arose with the series I, II and III Jaguar XJ6. The V12 versions of the Daimler, available from 1972 to 1997, were named Daimler Double-Six after the original Daimler V12s. An extended wheelbase version was introduced which eventually became the standard model. From 1975, the 2.8 litre was replaced by a 3.4 litre version of the XK engine. Finally, Jaguar introduced a short-lived two-door pillarless coupé version of the Series II using the short wheelbase floorplan with Daimler versions using both six and twelve cylinder engines; the coupé has proved the most enduring. Built, as it was, in relatively low numbers but demonstrating a purity of profile that has become very sought after. This rare 1976 Daimler Sovereign 4.2 Coupé has been the subject of a cosmetic restoration started in 2010, it included cutting out all the rust f

  • 259 - 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider

    POA

    The Alfa Romeo Giulietta (series 750 and 101) was Alfa Romeo's first, successful foray into the 1.3-litre class. From 1954 to 1965, a total of 177,690 Giuliettas were made with the great majority in Berlina saloon, Sprint Coupé or Spider Roadster body-styles but also as Sprint Speciale, Sprint Zagato Coupés and Promiscua estate variants. In mid 1955, the open two-seat Giulietta Spider, featuring convertible bodywork by Pininfarina was introduced. The car used unibody construction and a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. According to Alfa Romeo Automobilisimo Storico, this stunning car was manufactured on 19th July, 1961 and sold on 13th September, 1961 in Milan, Italy. This car was manufactured in San Giorgio, just north of Turin and was first sold just east of there in Milan in 1961. During most of its life, this Spider remained in and around the regions surrounding Milan and as such has enjoyed a preserved existence in a dry climate. This is a beautiful example is presented with a flawless Alfa Rosso exterior. The pretty design begins with a nest of sparkling chrome work featuring a delicately composed grille proudly displaying the Visconti badge. The Giulietta illustrates a

  • 257 - 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Roadster

    POA

    The Mercedes-Benz W113 roadsters, designed by Paul Bracq, were produced from 1963 through to 1971. They were known as the 'pagoda roof' SL and replaced the W198 SL in 1963 which was then, in turn, replaced by the R107 SL in 1971. All models boast an inline six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection using a mechanical pump system adapted from the diesel motors. Most of these early SL's were sold with both the removable hardtop and a softtop in the so-called 'coupé/roadster' configuration. By 1955, Mercedes-Benz Chief Engineer, Prof. Fritz Nallinger and his team, held no illusions regarding the 190 SL's lack of performance, in 1960, he eventually proposed to develop a completely new 220 SL design based on technology from the W112. This led to the W113 platform with an improved fuel-injected 2.3 litre M127, inline-six engine and the distinctive 'pagoda' hardtop roof called the 230 SL. It made a remarkable debut at the prestigious Geneva Motor Show in March 1963, where Nallinger introduced it as follows: 'It was our aim to create a very safe and fast sports car with high performance, which despite its sports characteristics, provides a very high degree of travelling comfort.'

  • 260 - 1993 Range Rover LSE

    POA

    The first generation Range Rover was produced between 1970 and 1996 and was not designed as a luxury-type 4x4; while certainly up-market compared to preceding Land Rover models, the early Range Rovers had fairly basic, utilitarian interiors with vinyl seats and plastic dashboards designed to be washed down with a hose. Features such as power-assisted steering, carpeted floors; air-conditioning, cloth/leather seats and wooden interior trim were fitted later. The Range Rover was a body-on-frame design with a box section ladder type chassis, similar to contemporary Land Rovers. The original Range Rover utilised coil springs as opposed to leaf springs, permanent four-wheel drive and four-wheel disc brakes and was originally powered by the Rover V8 engine. Air suspension was available from 1992 at the same time the LSE (long wheel base) model was introduced creating additional eight inches legroom for the passengers. This Range Rover LSE was originally registered on 20th November 1993 and is presented in good condition throughout. A service history accompanies L90 AJB and benefits from a stainless steel exhaust, together with an LPG system. We are advised by the vendor she drives well a

  • 256 - 1983 Bentley Mulsanne Turbo

    POA

    The Bentley Mulsanne is a performance luxury car produced from 1980 until 1992 although derivative models like the Continental T and Azure continued in production into the 2000s. The name 'Mulsanne' is derived from Bentley's famous racing history which included five victories at the 24 Hours du Mans between 1924 and 1930 - the 'Mulsanne Straight' being the stretch of the Le Mans racecourse where cars reach their highest speeds. The new Bentley promised to epitomise the very spirit of Bentley motoring by offering ample performance combined with complete comfort; the Mulsanne Turbo was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1982 and produced until 1985. There was a 50% increase in power thanks to the Garrett Airesearch turbocharger while the interior featured the usual highly polished walnut veneered fascia, blemish-free leather and carpets and headlining of pure wool. This Bentley Mulsanne Turbo has only covered an incredible 3,190 miles from new. It was purchased from Jack Barclay Limited in Berkley Square on 25th May, 1983 by Mr. Archibald D. Kelly, of Kilmacolm, who worked in shipbuilding; indeed, he owned shipyards in both Glasgow and Belfast. He purchased two Rolls-Royce cars and

  • 121 - 1964 Chevrolet Corvette C2 Stingray

    POA

    The Corvette Stingray had grown to be America's most popular sports car since its debut in 1953 but it was time for a change for the 1963-1967 models. Even the most superlative design grows whiskers after a decade and Chevrolet chief, Bill Mitchell, and stylist, Larry Shinoda, faced a tough task; to improve a living legend. Not only did they succeed but their creation turned into a modern classic and they created the most collectible Corvette of them all, sending sales soaring to record levels. Seeds were planted by the Stingray Special racer and experimental XP-720 which displayed a smooth fastback profile and split back window. These and other styling details pivoting hidden headlights, doors cut into the roof, a swage line dip all wound up in the production Sting Ray. The four headlights aligned with the pointy front end when shut, rotating open when needed. Imported from the USA, all appropriate taxes and duty have been paid and the relevant documents can be found in the history file. It has then undergone a process of renovation including full body, drive and braking system restoration. The interior is in good original condition sporting original upholstery. The chassis was al
