  • 1965 Morris Mini Cooper S 970cc

    POA

    Designed by Alex Issigonis in 1959, a new concept in car design was born. With a monocoque shell, transversely mounted engine and front wheel drive, the new 'Mini', as it was commonly known, soon became popular across a broad spectrum of the population. The potential for competition use was soon seen by John Cooper and although Alex Issigonis was less keen, BMC were finally persuaded by John Cooper and the two worked together in culminating the birth of the Austin Mini Cooper and the Morris Mini Cooper in 1961. Victories in the 1964, 1965 and 1967 Monte Carlo Rallies set the Mini on the road to fame but probably the greatest publicity was gained from their (somewhat unfair) disqualification for lighting irregularities in the 1966 event after coming in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the 'S', was developed in tandem and released in 1963. Featuring a 1071cc engine and larger servo-assisted disc brakes, 4,030 Cooper S cars were produced and sold until the model was updated in August 1964. Cooper also produced two S models specifically for circuit racing in the under 1,000 cc and under 1,300 cc classes respectively, rated at 970cc and a 1,275cc. The smaller-engine

  • 1970 Chevrolet Corvette C3 Roadster

    POA

    Pictures of a Similar Car The Chevrolet Corvette is instantly recognisable by the marque aficionado and non-aficionado alike. The first model, a convertible, was designed by Harley Earl and introduced at the GM Motorama in 1953 as a concept show car. Originally built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, the Corvette, today, is manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The third-generation Corvette, the C3, was designed along the lines of the Mako Shark II concept car and was introduced for the 1968 model year continuing in production until 1982. Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the C2 but the body and interior were all new. The 1970 Chevrolet Corvette replaced the four side gills with an egg-crate vents on the side. The fenders were flared slightly to keep rocks from being kicked up and scratching the paint. The seats were redesigned again, this time to create more headroom. This rare chrome-bumper C3 Roadster is fitted with a tuned Stroker 383 engine married to a manual gearbox. Stroker increased the cubic capacity by fitting a modified crankshaft increasing the piston stroke from 3.48 inches to 3.75 inches giving the engine more power, other modi

  • 1994 Mercedes-Benz S 500 'Biggie Smalls Gangster Rapper' by Paul Karslake FRSA

    POA

    The Artist: Even before he won his first County Art Prize at the age of eight, Paul Karslake was immersed into the Art World. Paul's father, Mike, was a renowned architectural model maker. From Mike, Paul was taught business ethics, form and perspective - attributes so lacking in many of today's working artists. Paul travelled to the United States in the late 1970s for what he imagined would be a three week holiday; he ended up staying four years! Soon after arriving in America, Paul was working for Los Angeles Art Studios, CBS Television and Disney, with whom, years later, he was to work on the Euro Disney Project. In 1990, the Wiggins Group Plc. commissioned Paul to produce a 650 ft. long artwork hoarding for their South Quay site in London Docklands for which he was awarded The Evening Standard Environmental Award. In the same year, he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (F.R.S.A.). Under the guidance of Derek Johns, ex-Director of Sotheby's and Old Master dealer in St. James's, Paul decided to further strengthen his ties with the Fine Art market. In 1995, he undertook a commission for some very large still life paintings for the restaurant that became Gordon Ra

  • 2001 Mercedes-Benz CL 600

    POA

    The CL Class is the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz car range. It continued to follow the same development cycle as the S-Class though riding on a shorter wheelbase and offered with only the higher-output powertrains. It was the first Mercedes to feature Active Body Control, Bi-Xenon headlights and, on the early V12 models such as this one, it employed Active Cylinder Control. This shut down one bank of cylinders under light engine loads enabling it to achieve better fuel economy than the V8 CL500. Not bad for a car with a six litre V12 developing 367bhp and yielding a Soyuz-launching 0-60mph time of 5.9 seconds. It is as a Grand Tourer that this model is primarily designed for though. With more rear seat space than many executive saloons, a huge boot and a truly cosseting driving environment, the CL is one of the most soothing cars you could hope to take on a long trip. The performance is remarkable and the turbine-smooth V12 is, frankly, epic. Originally registered on the 1st January, 2001 to Neville Anthony Howard, it passed quickly to the current keeper, a country vet who maintained it in its current immaculate condition until today. Despite the low mileage, it has always been se

  • 1961 Jaguar Mk.10

    POA

    The Jaguar Mk. 10 was the top of the range saloon car built by the British manufacturer primarily aimed at the United States market. The unitary construction body-shell was codenamed 'Zenith' during development and this floor pan continued in production long after Mk. 10 production ended, as the DS420 Limousine. The interior was the last Jaguar with abundant standard woodwork, including the dashboard, escutcheons, window trim, a pair of large bookmatched fold-out rear picnic tables and a front seat pull-out picnic table stowed beneath the instrument cluster. Later, air conditioning and a sound-proof glass division between the front and rear seats were available as options. The Mk. 10 was the first Jaguar saloon to feature independent rear suspension and differed from earlier large Jaguar saloons in having 14" wheels instead of the more common 15". The front suspension used double wishbones with coil springs and telescopic dampers. The car initially featured a 3,781cc version of Jaguar's XK in-line, six-cylinder engine. For the London Motor Show in October 1964, the enlarged 4,235cc unit took over although the 3.8-litre unit could still be specified until October 1965. Many domestic

  • 1954 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster

    POA

    The Jaguar XK120 was manufactured between 1948 and 1954 and was their first sports car since the SS100 which ceased production in 1940. It was launched in roadster form at the 1948 London Motor Show as a show car for the new Jaguar XK engine. It caused a sensation thus persuading Jaguar-founder and design boss William Lyons to put the car into production. The '120' in its name referred to its top speed which made the XK120 the world's fastest standard production car at the time of its launch. It was available in two open versions; first as the roadster, then also as a drophead coupé from 1953 and also as a closed, or 'fixedhead' coupé from 1951. With alloy cylinder head and twin side-draft SU carburettors, the double overhead-cam 3.4 litre straight six XK engine was comparatively advanced for a mass-produced unit of the time. With a standard compression ratio of 8:1 it developed 160bhp. This same basic design of the XK engine, later modified into 3.8 litre and 4.2 litre versions, survived into the late 1980s. This Jaguar XK120SE was dispatched from Jaguar Cars on 13th April 1953 to Hoffmans in New York. In 2011, it was brought back to the UK and registered with the DVLA; a V5C regi

  • 1965 Ford Cortina Mk. I 1500 GT

    POA

    The Cortina was Ford's mass-market compact car and sold extremely well. It was produced in five generations; the Mk. I through to the Mk. V, although officially the last one was called the Cortina 80. With variants of the Cortina reaching sales of over one million, each successive model proved more popular than its predecessor. Such was its fame in the UK, that the BBC Two documentary series Arena once devoted an entire programme to the car and its enthusiasts. In response to the huge success of the Mini, Ford responded not with a small car but with a larger family offering which they could sell in large numbers. The result was the Cortina; a distinctively styled car aimed at buyers of the Morris Oxford and Vauxhall Victor, launched on 20th September 1962. With eye-catching modern styling, it was originally branded as the Consul Cortina until a modest facelift in 1964, after which, it was sold simply as the Cortina but with four trim levels; Standard, Deluxe, Super and GT. This Cortina GT was restored a number of years ago and presents in excellent condition today, resplendent in its original colour of Ermine white with the Lotus Cortina green flash having been added later.

    POA

    The Capri was a two-door coupé version of the Ford Classic saloon made by Ford of Britain. The Ford Classic was a result of four years of development with approval for the project given in Autumn 1956. The styling of the car was the last project undertaken by Colin Neale before he left Dagenham for Dearborn. The initial design requirement was for the Ford Classic to be a full range model to take Ford into the new decade, Ford even developed a full-size estate prototype. The Capri Project was code named 'Sunbird' and took design elements from the Ford Thunderbird and the Ford Galaxie Sunliner. It was instigated by Sir Horace Denne, Ford's Sales Director, he wanted a 'co-respondent's' car to add glamour to the product line. In its September announcement, the Capri was for export only but went on sale to the domestic British market in January 1962. The bodies were sub-assembled by Pressed Steel Fisher with only final assembly taking place at Dagenham in Essex. It was intended as part of the Ford Classic range of cars but the body was complex and expensive to produce. The Ford Classic was made from 1961 to 1963, and replaced by the Cortina-derived Ford Corsair. Originally registered on

    POA

    W124 is the Mercedes-Benz internal chassis designation reference for the 1985 to 1995 version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Due to the high cost of German engineering and build quality, the model was designed to last many miles with awards won by high mileage versions. Much of the 124's engineering and many of its features were advanced automotive technology at introduction and incorporated innovations that were adopted throughout the industry. It had one of the lowest coefficients of drag of any vehicle at the time due to its aerodynamic body that included plastic moulding for the undercarriage to streamline airflow beneath the car, reducing fuel consumption and wind noise. Presented in Diamond Blue with a tan leather interior and dark walnut trim and steering wheel, this was supplied new by Rawsons TMS Ltd, Mercedes-Benz dealership in Tonbridge, Kent. Two other owners enjoyed the car until July 1992 when it was purchased by Mr. Ferris who then owned the car until 2015, some 23 years! During his tenure, the car was serviced and MoT tested by SS Motors, Surrey specialists with stamps in the book from 1993 to 2006. Prior to this, it was main dealers.

    POA

    Just 266 miles recorded The earliest Cooper Sport 500 in existence Perfect condition throughout To celebrate the final chapter of the classic shaped Mini that began life in 1959, a limited edition of 500 cars were produced and named the Rover Mini Cooper Sport 500. The classic Mini shape was retained but had the additional benefits of more modern mechanics and trim details. The best quality hides were used within the interior; the alloy dashboard, window winders and door handles were all a tribute to John Cooper. All of these last 500 cars were finished with Platinum silver roofs and stripes; every new owner also received a special gift with the purchase of the car. The most important item, however, is the certificate stating the car is a genuine Cooper Sport 500 which also bears the chassis number and the signatures of John Cooper and Kevin Howe, the chief executive of the MG Rover Group. There is little doubt that the once-humble Mini has developed into something of a collector's item, especially the more specialist and limited edition versions.

    POA

    Affectionately known as the T-Bird, the 1965 Ford Thunderbird was the fourth generation, its re-styling boasting a more square appearance but still retained a similar look to the previous generation with a comparable grill design and twin headlights. The 300 bhp V8 was mated to a three speed automatic transmission and disc brakes were added at the front. Sequential indicators resulted in the individual segments of the rear lights flashing from inside to out. Three versions were offered, hardtop, convertible and Landau. This 1965 Ford Thunderbird Landau was imported into the UK from the USA in circa 1991 and was UK registered on 20th July 1991. This T-Bird is powered by the Ford V8 power plant of 390 cubic inch (6400cc) and fuelled by a Holly carburettor. On a recent test, the Thunderbird drove well and certainly had a presence about it, the vendor informing us that it attracts a positive reaction wherever it goes. A workshop manual accompanies the Thunderbird as well as an MoT test certificate valid until January 2017. This T-Bird is largely original and un-molested and awaits a new owner/enthusiast to enjoy.

    POA

    The Continental was produced by the Lincoln division of the Ford Motor Company from 1939 to 1948 and again from 1956 to 2002. Despite often sharing the same floor plan with less-expensive Fords in more recent years, the Lincoln Continental name conveyed a special cachet being a distinctively styled, highly equipped luxury car in the course of its long history. In 1975, the two-door hardtop model was replaced with a pillared coupé; the four-door received a new roofline to further differentiate it from the Ford and Mercury models. The Continental Town Coupé received a square opera window in its rear pillar while the Town Car received an oval one. The braking performance was a sore point on full-size American cars of that time but was improved as the Continental became one of the first American cars with four-wheel disc brakes. In 1977, the radiator grille changed from a rectangular type to a Rolls-Royce style grille. The new grille was both higher and narrower than in previous years but the position of the headlamps remained unchanged. This Lincoln Continental Mk. V 'Collectors Series' was imported from the state of Illinois in June 2007 and is fitted with the large engine option. Fi

    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. With only 11,650 miles recorded, this 1986 example has to be perhaps the lowest mileage SL on the market today. As one would expect with such low miles, the condition of the car is described as being excellent in respect of the engine, interior, chassis and transmission. This original righthand drive example is finished in the desirable colour scheme of Smoke Silver metallic with a contrasting black hide interior and fitted with air conditioning.

These were Bill Blass, Givenchy, Pucci, and the Cartier. The Cartier's were externally finished dove grey paint with a dove grey 'Valino Grain' landau vinyl roof, red and white pin striping and dove grey body mouldings. The interior was in dove grey cloth or leather, leather in this instance. This well optioned Mk. IV came with speed control, power windows, power locks and single exhausts.

    POA

    Introduced in 2001, the hatchback Mini was the first model of the new generation Mini and was back then simply known as Mini. It was available in Cooper, Cooper S and One variations. In many European markets, the Mini One was powered by a 1.4 litre version but all other petrol powered Minis used the 1.6 litre version. The names Cooper and Cooper S, used for the sportier version of the classic Mini, came from the involvement of John Cooper and the Cooper Car Company. Strapping a supercharger to the Mini Cooper elevated the performance to a level that most other road users didn't expect. This rubbed salt into the wounds of other performance car drivers when they were left for dead on a twisty road. It takes a keen eye to pick out the bonnet scoop; the only reliable visual indication that this is the hot Mini rather than just a tarted-up One. In December 2000, Madonna, quite possibly the most recognisable female artist on the planet, wed English film director Guy Ritchie.

    The Porsche 928 was a front-engined sports-GT sold from 1978 to 1995 and was an immediate hit with demand in the UK far outstripping supply. 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 to create what some Porsche executives thought would be a vehicle with wider appeal than the compact, quirky and sometimes difficult 911. The 928 qualified as a 2+2, having two small seats in the rear which could be folded down to enlarge the luggage area and both the front and rear seats had sun visors for occupants. Porsche's design and development efforts paid off during the 1978 European Car of the Year competition where the 928 won ahead of the BMW 7-series and the Ford Granada. 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.

    The CL65 AMG represents a marriage between Satan, AMG and Jeremy Clarkson. It is a beautifully packaged and ridiculous collection of power, sumptuous comfort and noise, but to fully understand this motorcar, it is important to acquaint oneself with a fact or two. According to the UK Sales figures, just 35-40 CL65s were officially sold in Great Britain between 2004 and 2005 and in fact only 777 were produced worldwide, with pre-existing customers invited to purchase. It houses the same engine as the Maybach 57 and 62 'S' models, until you also learn that it is the same layout as fitted to the current Pagani Huayra supercar and that is very shouty indeed. There is 1,000nm of torque produced from the engine, detuned from 1,200nm in order to protect the gearbox. It pushes out 603bhp and costs, in Germany, €204,000 or £142,453.20 in this country, to be precise. The last example of this car we offered last year was heavily oversubscribed and so we are delighted to be able to present this very clean example.

    The Mercedes-Benz Type 300 was the company's largest and most-prestigious models throughout the 1950s. The Type 300 cars were elegant, exclusive and expensive. The 300 models were touring cars, often referred to as Adenauer's after Konrad Adenauer, the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, in office from 1949 to 1963; he employed six different versions during his tenure. These large saloons and four-door cabriolets featured many luxury features. Options such as Becker radio, VHF mobile telephone and dictation machine were geared to the business man and politician. Introduced in August 1957, the 300D was the linear successor to the 300C, with a longer wheelbase, fuel injection and unique hardtop configuration transforming it into a pillarless phaeton. The additional 4" of wheelbase provided greater rear legroom and established the car as a true limousine in direct competition with the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. Removable rear quarter lights allowed an unobstructed view in and out from the front vent window on back, much valued in the model's popular role as 'parade car'.

    The Fiat type 176 Barchetta was Fiat's re-entry to the convertible or spider car market and a challenge to the popular Mazda MX5 from Japan. With distinctive styling that can be traced back to the 1949 Ferrari 166MM, production began at the Maggiora plant close to Turin in 1995 and, due to the lack of a spray shop, were painted at Bertone's plant and then returned for final assembly. Built on the Fiat Punto floor pan and fitted with the 1,747cc twin over-head cam engine with Fiat's variable valve timing, these engines are very reliable as well as lively and responsive. With a firm chassis and very good panel fit, these hand assembled sports cars are great fun to drive and have what must be the easiest and quickest hood to put up or down. Production ceased at the Maggiora factory in 2002 and production was moved to Fiats Mirafiori plant, where a face lift model or phase II was built until 2005.

    POA

    The Ferrari F355 was built from May 1994 to 1999. It is an evolution of the Ferrari 348, a mid-engined, rear wheel drive V8-powered 2-seat coupé. One major difference between the V8 in the 348 and that in the F355, apart from the displacement increase from 3.4 to 3.5 litres, is that the F355 features a 5-valve per-cylinder head that is considerably more powerful, producing 375bhp. The frame is a steel monocoque with tubular steel rear sub-frame with front and rear suspensions using independent, unequal-length wishbones, coil springs over gas-filled telescopic shock absorbers with electronic control servos and anti-roll bars. Ferrari fitted all road-going F355 models with Pirelli tyres. Derived directly from Formula 1, where it made its debut in 1989 winning the Brazilian Grand Prix, the electro-hydraulic gear change system was operated by paddles behind the steering wheel using the F355's conventional 6-speed manual gearbox. The new transmission guaranteed lightning-quick gear changes, with the additional advantage that both the driver's hands could stay on the wheel at all times. This lefthand drive Ferrari is finished in Grigio with black trim and is a superb looking vehicle. Ori

  • 328 - 1996 Bentley Brooklands

    POA

    The Bentley Brooklands was introduced in 1992 as a replacement for the Bentley Mulsanne and Bentley Eight models. It was intended as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R featuring the same styling, underpinnings of the Rolls-Royce 6.75 litre, V8 engine but without the more powerful model's turbocharger. The Brooklands continued Bentley's design theme which was also used on contemporary Rolls-Royce vehicles throughout the 1980's and early 1990's. The exterior design featured the classic Bentley grill as well as dual headlights with wrap-around parking lights. As with many Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles, the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot lid and chrome B-pillars. The interior remained relatively unchanged from previous Bentley models but with a more curvaceous design element surrounding the leather-wrapped centre console. This 1996 Bentley Brooklands has had very little use in the last five years covering only a 1,000 miles a year. Finished in the uncommon colour of Silver with grey Connolly hide interior, it was subject to £6,000 being spent on it in 2015 which included having a twelve-month service, new rear engine mounts, brake overhaul

  • 325 - 1993 Ferrari F512 TR

    POA

    The 512 TR was the replacement for the Testarossa and was announced for the 1992 model year. The new car witnessed a return to a model title using characters, with the figure '5' referring to the cubic capacity of the engine in litres and the '12' to the number of cylinders, whilst the 'TR' was an abbreviation of Testarossa. The main external visual differences were the nose and tail treatment, the louvre design on the engine lid and the design of the road wheels. There was also a barely noticeable different profile to the sail panel buttresses which were plain and flowed directly into the roof panel on the 512 TR. Internally, there were changes to the seats, steering wheel design and trim details. Mechanically there were numerous changes to the engine and gearbox which boosted power and provided a more satisfying and positive to use gearbox. Not visually apparent was that the engine and transmission assembly location in the chassis had been dropped by 30mm to lower the centre of gravity and thus improve the already high standard of ride and roadholding. Offered here is an exceptionally well presented 512 TR in Ferrari Rosso red with black leather interior. This example was origina

  • 329 - 1963 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ7

    POA

    We are pleased to offer this delightful Austin Healey 3000 BJ7 built to represent the works Healey of 1964. Imported from the USA in 1990, EBW 195B has since undergone extensive restoration works over an 18 year period; works that still exude a quality today. In fact, it is rarely seen with such a motor car, that it displays a character and a patina often missed with the overly glitzy restorations often seen today. Thankfully, EBW 195B still retains the lefthand drive format it started life with. The British Motoring Heritage Trust Certificate states that this big Healey was manufactured between 27 th and 28 th June 1963 and was dispatched to the USA on the 22 nd July of that year. The certificate also confirms that the Healey was dispatched with wire wheels, overdrive, a heater, an adjustable steering column, tonneau cover, whitewall tyres and a laminated windscreen. The Guards red coachwork is in excellent order throughout with the standard continuing on the undersides. Of note are the panel gaps, a detail that is difficult to get right with restorations of motor cars of this construction. The front wings have the addition of the works style vents and what really sets this Healey

  • 330 - 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250 SL Roadster

    POA

    The Mercedes-Benz W113 roadsters, designed by Paul Bracq, were produced from 1963 through to 1971. All models boast an inline six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection with rear-wheel drive but are also equipped with independent rear suspension; a feature that greatly improved road handling. Most of these early SL's were sold with both the removable hard-top and a soft-top in the so called 'Coupé/Roadster' configuration. The 230 SL 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.' This highly desirable 250 SL with automatic gearbox is in superb condition throughout as you would expect from a fully restored example. To begin with, the body has been completely sand-blasted then a process added to prevent any future corrosion. The body has then been painted in the correct and original factory colour. The floor-pans and sills were replaced and the boot area renovated. A new windscreen has been fitted and 70% of the rubber seals are new. T

  • 331 - 1965 Triumph Spitfire Four Mk. II

    POA

    The production car changed little from the prototype, although the full-width rear bumper was dropped in favour of two part-bumpers curving round each corner, with overriders. Mechanics were basically stock Herald with the notable addition of front disc brakes. The engine was an 1,147cc four-cylinder with a pushrod OHV cylinder head and two valves per cylinder, mildly tuned for the Spitfire, fed by twin SU carburettors. Also from the Herald, came the rack and pinion steering and coil-and-wishbone front suspension, and at the rear, a single transverse-leaf swing axle arrangement. The body was bolted to a much-modified Herald chassis, the outer rails and the rear outriggers having been removed; little of the original Herald chassis design was left and the Spitfire used structural outer sills to stiffen its body tub. For 1964, an overdrive option was added to the four-speed manual gearbox to give more relaxed cruising. Wire wheels and a hard top were also available. In March 1965, the Spitfire Mk. II was launched. It was very similar to the Mk. I but featured a more highly tuned engine, through a revised camshaft design, a water-cooled intake manifold, and tubular exhaust manifold, in

  • 332 - 1985 Buckingham Limousine

    POA

    This is a unique car in every way, a one off built for a classic car collector in 1980, taking five years to complete finally being registered in 1985. Based on the Jaguar V12 running gear on a chassis, the aluminium body was created by ex-workers from Aston Martin body shop and since being built has only covered 11,500 miles. At the time of construction, it cost around £250,000 to build. Featuring gullwing doors to the rear compartment this stunning car, like the Panther DeVille, it used the Bugatti Royale as its inspiration for its design. Similar to the Royale, cost was not a deciding facture in building this car. Featured on the BBC programme, Top Gear in 1985, it was built to the highest of standards featuring Connelly grey leather, crystal wine glasses, on-board umbrellas and lamb's wool rugs. The coachwork is finished almandine red and dove grey with full Aston Martin grey leather seating; it has a full service history having only covered 11,500 miles since being built. This is a totally a one-off car which has been built to the highest of standards which would reduplicate the coachbuilders of the 1929's in their heyday. The Buckingham is supplied with a V5C registration doc

  • 337 - 1993 Bentley Continental R

    POA

    Since 1921, the Bentley name has remained synonymous with prestige, performance and luxury. The 'Continental' designation recalls the Bentley Continental of the post-war period. The 'R' resonates to the R-Type Bentleys from the 1950s as well as the Turbo R of the 1980s. Bentley's 1980s resurgence relied exclusively on models whose basic architecture was shared with other Rolls-Royce models however; the Bentley Continental R was unique to the Bentley marque. Despite the need to incorporate non-traditional features such as doors recessed into the roof, the result looked every bit a Bentley, albeit one re-stated for the 1990s. Needless to say, the performance was outstanding, the combination of the Turbo R engine in the new wind-cheating shape cutting the 0-60mph time to under six seconds and boosting a top speed in excess of 150mph. Presented in Georgian Silver with opulent ivory leather interior, this outstanding example spent its first five years in the Channel Islands and has covered a mere 68,000 miles. This Continental R has been serviced by Bentley since production, details of which can be reviewed in the history file which also contains a collection of bills substantiating the
