  • 189 - 1965 Sunbeam Tiger Mk.I

    POA

    Inspired by the AC Cobra that was effectively the British AC Ace sports car powered by the large American Ford 4.2 litre, V8, the Sunbeam Tiger first saw the light of day in 1964. Based upon the Rootes Group, Sunbeam Alpine, the Tiger - with the Ford power plant slotted into the engine bay, it became what is surely one of motoring's true 'wolf in sheep's clothing'. Precise handling was retained by keeping the Alpine's rack and pinion steering with stunning performance due not only to the muscle V8 but also due to the lightweight Alpine shell. This handsome Sunbeam Tiger has been restored a number of years ago by Stratton Motor Company who are the Aston Martin Dealers in Norwich. She has been painted in Rolls-Royce royal blue and trimmed in Connolly cream hide, Wilton carpets and a mohair hood. The engine has been rebuilt and has covered circa 1,000 miles since the rebuild. Recently, a new steering rack and pinion has also been fitted. With a V8 mated to a manual gearbox, the performance of this Tiger is impressive to say the least. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate together with a history folder, this iconic 60s sports car represents a

  • 190 - 2002 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupé Evocation

    POA

    The Shelby Daytona Coupé (also referred to as the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupé) is a sports-coupé related to the AC Cobra roadster, loosely based on its chassis and drive-train. It was built for racing, specifically to take on Ferrari and its 250GTO in the GT class. There were only six original Coupés ever made. Those cars captured the 1965 FIA World Championship for America in the last years before mega-money took American road racing from its roots and from the average guy. Despite the fact that the design never entered production, those six cars, hand-built upon 289 AC chassis, are some of the most valuable collectors' cars on the planet. Each of the original six Daytona Coupés is valued at more than $8 million. Supplied by Factory Five in Canada, this Shelby Daytona Coupé has been built to road and race specification. She is very authentic in appearance and is fitted with a Hawaii Racing built Ford 351W and has been bored to 363 cubic inches (5800cc) producing an impressive 450bhp, all of this power is mated to a TKO five-speed gearbox. Finished in the Guardsman blue with the correct white strips and decals; this is a stunning looking car with very impressive performance and is n

  • 191 - 2003 Porsche 996 Turbo Tiptronic

    POA

    The Porsche 996 is the internal designation for the Porsche 911 model- manufactured and sold between 1998 and 2005. On its debut, the 996 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction, namely the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled unit. Progressively stringent noise regulations, environmental concerns, a higher expectation for refinement and a high-performance, four-valve-per-cylinder engine made the switch necessary. Other changes included a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a re-designed interior. The 996 Turbo debuted at the Frankfurt Show in September 1999. The turbo was powered by a water-cooled twin turbocharged/intercooled 3.6L H-6 derived from the 1998 LeMans winning GT-1 car. The 996 turbo featured all-wheel drive and was available with either a six-speed manual or a five-speed Tiptronic transmission. This 2003 Porsche Turbo is owned by a very knowledgeable Porsche enthusiast who is meticulous in how his cars are maintained. This is no exception and presents in delightful condition with a superb service history, the last recently in November. The 3600cc engine fired up immediately when reques

  • 163 - 1963 Ford Lotus Cortina Mk. I

    POA

    The history of the Lotus Cortina began in 1961 after Colin Chapman decided he wanted to build his own engines for Lotus. The engine's first appearance was in 1962 at the Nürburgring in a Lotus 23 driven by Jim Clark. Immediately after and almost as soon as the engine appeared in the Lotus Elan, it was recalled and replaced with a larger capacity unit to get the car closer to the 1.6 litre capacity class in motorsport. Whilst the engine was being developed, Walter Hayes from Ford asked Colin Chapman if he would fit the engine to 1,000 Ford saloons for Group Two homologation cars. Chapman quickly accepted and the Type 28 or Lotus-Cortina was duly launched. Ford supplied the two-door Cortina body shells and took care of all the marketing and selling of the cars whilst Lotus did all the mechanical and cosmetic changes. The major changes involved installing the 1,558cc engine together with the same close-ratio gearbox as the Elan. Interior modifications were limited to a centre console designed to accommodate the new gear lever position, different seats and the later style dashboard featuring tachometer, speedometer, oil pressure, water temperature and fuel level gauges as well as a woo

    POA

    The Ford Consul Capri was launched in 1961 and was the first European market Ford to bear the Capri name. The Ford Consul Capri is a two-door coupé version of the Classic Consul and was available from 1961 until 1964. In February 1963, the GT version was announced. The new GT engine, developed by Cosworth, featured a raised compression ratio 9:1, a modified head with larger exhaust valves, an aluminium inlet manifold, a four branch exhaust and most noticeably a twin choke Weber carburettor - this being the first use of this make on a British production car, the rarest of all the British Fords with only 39 GT's registered. Overall, the car was very expensive to produce and in the latter part of its production was running alongside the very popular Ford Cortina. Only 2,002 GT models were built and just 1,007 cars were sold in 1964, the last year of production, 412 of them being GT's. Built in the last year of production, this car was first registered on the 7th February, 1964. This stunning Ford has benefitted from being fully restored and kept in a heated facility, never seeing rain or moist weather in 25 years, looks stunning with its two tone paintwork and leather interior which i

    POA

    - Group One GT Cup competitor - Fished 3rd at Spa and 2nd overall in 2009 - Road legal producing 520 BHP The Porsche 964 is the company's internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models; most prominently, the more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche's optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all wheel drive as options. The GT Cup is perhaps the Holy Grail for budding and experienced race car drivers; Group One cars are not for the feint hearted and this particular GT competitor started life as a rather unassuming Carrera Sport and was sourced by a race team lead by driver Danny Winstanley. A light damage insurance loss in 2005 meant that this donor car could be readily sourced; it was purchased and then swiftly up rated to a competitive car ready for the 2009 championships. Recently, the current owner had the car independently inspected in accordance with the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre by AutoLign inspections of Mawsley resulting in the car being removed from the HPI condition alert registe

  • 172 - 2005 Aston Martin DB9 Coupé

    POA

    The sleek superformed aluminium body of the DB9 was initially designed by Ian Callum but had also been significantly influenced by the next director of AM design, Hendrik Fisker. It was powered by a third generation version of the now familiar 6.0 litre, V12 and has a top speed of 186mph. The DB9 was the first of what was to become a long line of production Aston Martins to use VH architecture; using superformed parts in the chassis and footwell as well as the body panels. The individual die-cast, extruded or stamped aluminium elements of the VH platform are bonded with strong adhesives and self-piercing rivets to make a lightweight but stiff backbone. The DB9 body shell weighed 25% less than that of the DB7 but has double its torsional rigidity. This process also allowed Aston Martin to retain high levels of engineering accuracy in producing a car at a higher volume, ensuring chassis performance to match the engine power. Aston Martins have always made the interior of their cars to be very special places. The fine detail of finishing is typified by the starter button made of glass and sand etched with the Aston Martin wings logo. This righthand drive example presented in Lightenin

  • 168 - 1965 Morris Mini Cooper S

    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

    POA

    The origins of the Corniche came from the continuation of the 1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow coupé and 1967 drophead, constructed by the famed coachbuilder Mulliner Park Ward in London. The car was named after the stunning roads along the Côte d'Azur in France and was an elegant two door car available with either a coupé or convertible body. By 1982, the coupé had ceased production but convertibles continued to be built until 1996. The first Rolls-Royce to wear the Corniche name was a 1939 prototype based on the Bentley Mk. V, although this was never produced due to the onset of World War II. The car used the standard Rolls-Royce V8 engine as fitted to the Silver Shadow and had an aluminium-silicon alloy block and aluminium cylinder heads with cast iron wet cylinder liners. The fuel system was in the form of twin SU carburettors which were later replaced with Bosch fuel injection from 1980 onwards. This delightful Corniche Convertible by Mulliner Park Ward is presented in Ivory with a brown hood and matching chestnut leather interior.

    POA

    Launched at the Turin Motor Show in 1960, the Lancia Flavia Berlina was a medium sized executive motor car powered by Lancia's all aluminium 1.5 litre boxer engine. The svelte coupé was developed by Pininfarina shortly afterwards built upon a shortened platform. The hand-built cars constructed at Pininfarina's new factory were considered to be built to a much higher standard than the later massed-produced cars. Originally manufactured with the 1.5 litre engine, it was thought that this power unit was somewhat under-powered, so a 1.8 litre unit has been fitted. In recent years, works involved the cylinder head faces being resurfaced, re-cut valve seats and new valves and springs, resulting with the engine starting easily, performing well and displaying good oil pressure. The Dunlop braking system is the same as contemporary Jaguars and Jensen's, so spares are readily available. The brake calliper bores have been honed and fitted with new seals with the brake servo also having been rebuilt in recent years. The front suspension arms have been overhauled and a new clutch has also been fitted. To further aid cooling, an oil cooler was also added in 2013. Since this time the car has cont

    The first Porsche 911 was introduced in 1963 as the replacement for the much loved Porsche 356. It has a distinctive design with a rear-engine and 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 1950s. The most notable advances in 1984 were the introduction of the 3.2 litre engine. Although it remained an air-cooled 'flat six', the '3.2' was 80% new and incorporated an effective cam chain tensioner and associated lubrication system that at last addressed a perennial 911 shortcoming. 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. This striking UK-delivered example presents in Guards Red with original beige pinstripe velour interior and black carpets. The front seats have electric he

    The Mercedes-Benz W113 SL was developed under the auspices of Mercedes-Benz Technical Director, Fritz Nallinger, Chief Engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut and Head of Styling, Friedrich Geiger. The lead designers were Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi who created its distinctive, patented, slightly concave hardtop which inspired the 'Pagoda' nickname. The model was manufactured from 1963 through to 1971 and boasted an in-line straight six engine with multi-port fuel injection. The larger and more popular capacity 280 (2.8 litre) was introduced in 1967 and remained largely unchanged until 1971. This lefthand drive automatic Mercedes-Benz 280 SL resided in New York prior to it arriving in the UK in 2013 and has only one recorded keeper since importation. Upon arrival, the car was fully modified for UK homologation and subsequently, in October 2014, some £5,500 was spent at Roger Edwards along with four new steel wheels purchased in November 2014.

    The Porsche 944 was built from 1982 to 1991 and was built on the same platform as the 924. It was intended to last into the 1990's but major revisions planned for a 944 S3 model were eventually rolled into the 968 instead which replaced the 944. The 944 was a successful model and was available as both a coupé and cabriolet in naturally aspirated and turbocharged forms. In mid-1985, the Porsche 944 underwent significant changes. The new Porsche owners were attracted by the stunning looks and presence of the model and in 1985, the 'Lux' coupé arrived with a completely new interior design dominated by a smooth, sweeping oval dashboard. This severed all ties with the 924 and completed the move upmarket for the 944.

    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.

    POA

    At the time of its launch in 2003, the upgraded Phase 2 Clio V6, 3 litre was the most powerful serial produced hot hatchback in the world with 255bhp. Based upon the Phase 1 engine, its extra performance was helped with assistance from Porsche. Although based on a utilitarian hatchback, the Clio V6 is not a practical family car. The loss of the back seats and most of the boot space, due to the engine placement, results in a severe restriction in luggage space - there is only a small space in the front where the engine used to be, suitable for a holdall or weekend groceries, a small netted area behind the seats plus a small stash area under the bootlid. The Clio V6 Phase 2 gained even more weight, but offset it with an additional 25 horsepower resulting in the 255bhp. This resulted in a reduced 0-60mph time of 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 153mph. We are delighted to offer this modern classic supercar that is finished in the attractive Illiad Blue metallic finish with contrasting dark grey leather upholstery.

    The Maserati 4200 is an evolution from the previous model 3200 and also a reference to the increase in engine size from 3.2 to 4.2 litres. The Spyder was first unveiled to the public at the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show with the Coupé's debut following shortly after at the 2002 Detroit Motor Show. Both cars were designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of ItalDesign and is a true four-seater capable of comfortably seating two adults in the back. The naturally aspirated V8 engine was based on a Ferrari unit producing 385hp at 7000rpm; the manual gearbox is a six-speed unit that was available either as a GT (manual) or CC (Cambiocorsa) using paddle shifters. The Cambiocorsa ('race change' in Italian) is an electro-hydraulic manual transmission that uses a Formula 1 type gearbox with hydraulic operation and electronic management operated by F1-style paddles behind the steering wheel. The gearbox is located at the back of the car with the rear differential giving equal weight disproportion between the front and rear of the car giving better road holding.

    The first 'S-class' Mercedes-Benz arrived in 1968 in the form of the 280 S and 280 SE which were large comfortable sports saloons offering powerful touring capabilities and luxurious interiors with space to seat five occupants. Known as the W108/109 models, they were constructed on 108" wheelbase and the new S-Class saloons were much heavier than earlier models. The styling was updated using a thoroughly modern design featuring the attractive stacked layout of the headlights which was popular during the period. Although the 280 was usually powered by a 2.8 litre, straight six engine, Mercedes-Benz, rather confusingly, added a V8 engined 280 SE to the model range. The 280 SE 3.5 had a 3.5 litre, V8 engine and came with both automatic and manual transmission and power steering. These saloons were well equipped and extremely powerful. The 280 SE 3.5 would reach a top-speed of 125mph and offered effortless high-speed cruising mated with supple ride comfort.

    After a 16-year hiatus, the GT-R name was revived in 1989 with the Skyline R32; this car was nicknamed 'Godzilla' by the Australian motoring publication 'Wheels' in its July 1989 edition. The R33 was introduced in August 1993 and was considered the safest model at that time due its airbag system and internal crash bars. Few cars have built up quite such a mantle of invincibility as Nissan's Skyline GT-R. Founded on saloon car racing dominance, almost implausible lap times of the Nürburgring and an underground following that translated into an unquenchable public demand here in the UK, the Skyline has created its own legends. The GT-R offered today was built to Victory-Specification (V-Spec) N1, also referred to as Group N Racing. This makes this GT-R one of only 71 built and in the Japanese signature colour of International Racing White. What makes the N1 exclusive is that it was factory built as a lightweight performance motor car.

    That Jaguar's XJS has become a 'bona fide' classic is beyond doubt. Launched in 1975, its twenty one year production life was a testimony to the excellence of its basic design. Its excellent ride and handling balance was justly praised by the contemporary motoring press. The car was re-engineered in 1991 with the rear side windows enlarged and a new four litre engine. The rear section benefitted from the new 'facelift' rear lights with the front as before, a series 1½ if you will. Banham Conversions (Banmoco) was a maker of kit cars from the late 1970s until 2004. The company was founded by Paul Banham who started off building convertible conversions on commission. He made convertible versions of the Ferrari 400, Aston Martin DBS and V8, and the Rolls-Royce Corniche. By the 1980s, he was marketing a kit to rebody the Jaguar XJS. He also offered convertible conversions for the XJS and Jaguar XJ6. The company was eventually sold in 2004 to Rally Sport Replicas Ltd. who sought to create new chassis for the designs but they ceased trading in mid-2005. This extremely rare Paul Banham XJS-S, 3.6 litre automatic convertible has photographic build history from the original owner who commis

  • 113 - 1976 Triumph Stag

    POA

    Launched in 1970, the Triumph Stag was a luxury grand tourer. Envisioned as a luxury sports car, it was designed to compete directly with the Mercedes-Benz SL class models. All Stags were four-seater convertible coupés but, for structural rigidity and to meet new American rollover standards at the time, the Stag required a B-pillar 'roll bar' hoop connected to the windscreen frame by a T-bar. A removable hardtop was a popular factory option for the early Triumph Stags and was later supplied as standard equipment. A new 2.5 litre, V8, designed and developed by Triumph's Harry Webster, was later enlarged to 2997cc. Most Stags were fitted with a Borg Warner automatic gearbox although manual gearboxes with overdrive are available. Electric windows, power steering and power-assisted brakes were fitted as standard. Originally registered on 18 th August 1976, this Triumph Stag presents in excellent order having benefitted from significant investment over the years. The bodywork has been taken care of with new front wings fitted and the usual weak points either repaired or replaced. The red paintwork is finished to a very good standard, as is the black interior.

  • 114 - 1989 Porsche 944 Lux

    POA

    The 944 was to feature new styling based upon the Le Mans-styles-Porsche 924 Carrera GT, along with a brand-new Porsche-designed and developed 2.5 litre, four cylinder engine. Sales of the 168bhp coupé went through the roof with a massive 26,800 Porsche 944s being produced by the end of 1982. To put this figure into context, the entire Porsche company made just 28,000 cars in 1981. The new Porsche owners were attracted by the stunning looks and presence of the model and in 1985, the 'Lux' coupé arrived with a completely new interior design dominated by a smooth, sweeping oval dashboard. This severed all ties with the 924 and completed the move upmarket for the 944. The dash provided improved ergonomics for the instruments with all useful components and buttons placed close at hand. With so many built, they were a familiar sight on UK roads however, it is fair to say that relatively few pristine examples still exist. This, however, represents one such manual example. Presented in Arctic White with tartan cloth 'tombstone' seating to the interior, it is genuinely difficult to find fault with this car. The interior is as unused, it has clearly had 60,700 very careful miles driven and

  • 125 - 1972 Mercedes-Benz 350 SL Roadster

    POA

    The Mercedes-Benz R129 models were produced from 1989 through to 2001 and sold under the SL-Class model names. The R129 replaced the R107 SL-Class in 1989 and was subsequently 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 R129 came to public attention in 1991 when Diana, Princess of Wales, sold her Jaguar XJS to lease a J-registration, metallic-red 500 SL, becoming the first member of the Royal Family to use a foreign car and sparked a media storm. The fifth generation of the legendary SL series was known as the R230. It 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. This lovely roadster was first registered in January 1972, in rare metallic red with contrasting two tone beige over brown MBTex interior. Offered with what many would consider the best combination for an R107 Mercedes, the 3.5litre engine, this 350 SL is offered with an MoT test certificate until September 2017 and is a perfect summer drop-top. Within the history file, old MoT test ce

  • 127 - 1980 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit

    POA

    Before David Plastow left his senior position at Rolls-Royce following the take-over of Vickers plc, he had been responsible for a series of models, amongst which was the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit and was unveiled in October 1980 as a replacement for the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The coachwork of the Silver Spirit had been designed at the in house styling centre by Fritz Feller and gave the impression of being stretched in comparison with the bodies of the previous generation. Direct comparison, however, showed only small differences. The new models had slightly grown in length and width; height had been cut a little, although the styling was more modern than that of its predecessor. The interior was dominated by the expected combination of fine wood and sumptuous leather. This truly period example has been the sole preserve of one owner since its build date some 36 years ago. Finished in claret with beige hide with a factory black vinyl roof, it has very recently benefitted from recommissioning with over 60 hours labour and £8,700 spent on costs. It has been in secure dry and heated storage for most of its life, hence the incredibly low millage of just 41,001 and the correspondin

  • 121 - 1983 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Roadster

    POA

    The Mercedes-Benz SL has been in production since 1954 with perhaps the most influential model being the W113 Pagoda of 1963. This second generation evolved from the 230 SL to 250 SL, finally becoming the 280 SL. The W113 was replaced by the W107 in 1971 and, as the engines became larger, the bodywork and weight of the cars also increased, as so often happens in mid-life! The SL improved through the years with technical innovation but still managed to keep its fundamental character and identity of an up-market, high-quality sports car. Its reputation went from strength to strength and it was rare to see an episode of Dallas or Dynasty in the 1980's without an SL making a star appearance. The genius soft-top mechanism which folds down out of sight under a panel ahead of the boot lid gave the car a beautifully sleek, uncluttered appearance. Of all the engine offerings the 280 remains the most sought after with the smaller 2.8 litre engine offering plenty of power but with the advantage of less weight and this improved handling. First registered on the 1st August, 1983, this fine example boasts a full service history and was supplied new via Evans Halshaw in Chesham. Supplied with a n

  • 141 - 1979 Mercedes-Benz 350 SL Roadster

    POA

    The Mercedes R107 was launched in 1971 and production continued through to 1989 - a hefty 18 years; the longest single series ever produced by the firm besides the G-Class utility vehicle. The R107 replaced the W113 Pagoda SL in 1972 and was replaced by the R29 SL in 1989. Some 237,000 R107 SL's were built and about two thirds were sold in the US. The car was essentially a two-seater sports car although a small seating arrangement was available behind the front seats. Mercedes-Benz offered a number of engine choices over the years, the first cars in 1971 being fitted with the 350 engine, a V8 3.5-litre unit. By 1973 a larger 4.5-litre, V8 was available, constructed primarily for the US market. The SL Roadster has since become the epitome of how a luxury roadster should look and is as popular today as when first launched. This righthand drive 1979 Mercedes-Benz 350 SL Roadster was supplied new in Jersey, Channel Islands, after having just two owners there the car was purchased and imported by the third owner to the UK in 2013. This very clean, rust free 350 SL has been looked after by Le Riche car company in Jersey and it was recently serviced by marque specialists, Steve Redfearn,
