Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1988 Jaguar XJR-9 The XJR-9 is sports prototype racing car built by TWR and Jaguar to compete in the FIA Group C and IMSA Camel GTP race series. It was designed by Tony Southgate, constructed by TWR and utilised a 7.0 Litre V12 Jaguar engine. Its debut was at the 24 hours of Daytona held over 1st and 2nd of February 1988 where it scored an outright victory. Further successes were achieved in the World Sports Prototype Championship where the Silk Cut liveried cars took six victories over the eleven race series, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which was enough to secure the team championship. The car offered is the sixth and final new XJR-9 built by TWR in 1988 and was introduced mid-season to replace the Le Mans winner, chassis 488, which was retired after its victory. For the majority of the 1988 season it was piloted by Jan Lammers and Johnny Dumfries, although Martin Brundle also drove the car at Spa. The first race for Chassis 688 was round six of the Championship, held at Brno on July 10th, where Lammers and Dumfries qualified 5th but took a tremendous 3rd just behind Brundle and Neilson in Chassis 588. Round seven was held two wee

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 Jaguar XK150 DHC LHD This delightful car is a very original Special Equipment XK150 3.4 Drop Head Coupe. It was built in left hand drive and delivered to Jaguar Cars in New York on January 7th of 1959. The car remained in the US for the next 29 years, although it moved to California at some stage until it was purchased by its most recent owner and returned to the UK in 1988. Upon arrival the car was found to be in excellent original condition, in large part due to its life in California, and since that time has been very carefully maintained as attested by the numerous invoices that accompany the good history file. In January 1989 the odometer was refurbished and zeroed in the process. The mileage up to that point was 19,735 and believed to be original. The mileage currently showing is just over 18,600 miles, which suggests an original total mileage of less than 38,500 and is consistent with the overall preservation of the car and the records kept by its last owner of 30 years. Finished in its original Black with Red leather interior and wearing body coloured wire wheels it displays a charming patina, with the excellent original interior
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 JD Classics are delighted to offer this very rare Aston Martin DB4 Series V Vantage, being one of only three which were originally fitted with an automatic transmission. The DB4 was introduced in October 1958 and by the time it was discontinued in 1963 it had evolved considerably with five distinct series being recognised. The last of these, the Series V, closely resembled its successor, the DB5, with a 3.5 inch longer wheelbase, which allowed for increased leg room and boot space, and more cabin space provided by a higher roof line. It also featured 15 inch wheels, an electric radiator fan as standard and a DB4GT instrument panel. With only some 50 cars built in this final incarnation of the DB4, the Series V has always been a rare and highly desirable Aston Martin. The example offered here is an original UK RHD car delivered new in August 1963 to Mr H Seligman of Buckinghamshire, finished in Goodwood Green and its rarity is enhanced by the fact that it is one of only three cars that were fitted with a Borg-Warner automatic transmission from new. Interestingly the original factory build sheet reveals several other non-standard features i

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1955 Jaguar XK140 3.4 MC Drophead Coupe, LHD. The XK140 debuted in 1954 as the latest iteration of Jaguar’s classic XK series of sports cars. Preserving the curvaceous wing lines of the XK120 but featuring much needed improvements in handling, leg room and overall power, the 140 quickly proved to be a worthy heir to its iconic predecessor. Of these latest 140s, the most desirable models were those finished to Special Equipment standard and fitted with the C-Type cylinder head – such models were given the moniker “MC” in the critical North American market where demand was large and growing, particularly among the sports car fraternity. Originally supplied to California, this highly desirable ‘MC’ model with factory fitted C-Type cylinder head has benefited from a total chassis off restoration to a very high standard with very little use since completion. This XK140 is full matching numbers and has been upgraded by JD Classics to our Touring Specification less than 4 years ago. Numerous JD Sport upgrades were fitted including, 5 speed all synchromesh gearbox, Power Assisted Steering, Front Brakes upgrade with 4 Pot Caliper Discs, Alternator
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 XK140 Drophead Coupe, one of 480 in RHD and one of only 15 delivered in British Racing Green with Suede Green interior and Gunmetal hood. It is a particularly important example in view of its almost un-paralleled originality and time warp condition. Constructed in November 1955, it was dispatched on January 18th 1956 to its first owner; the proprietor of Graphic Designs, a Wolverhampton-based design company. For the next 52 years it remained in the same family ownership and covered only a little over 30,000 miles during that time before being acquired by JD Classics in 2008. Carefully maintained throughout its life, it is one of very few survivors that remain in remarkably good unrestored condition retaining full matching numbers, original paintwork, carpets, trim, hood and tools, including the rare wheel brace that was only fitted to cars with disc wheels. The remarkable degree of preservation of this example is confirmed by the fact that it is featured in two highly significant books; “Jaguar XK140/150 in Detail”, written by Jaguar Daimler Heritage’s chief archivist Anders Clausager and the “Original Jaguar XK”, written by the founder o
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 Ferrari 330 GTS, 1967 LHD. Launched at the 1966 Geneva Salon, the 330 GTC was a new addition to the Ferrari range, not a replacement. The new model featured a 4-litre V12 twin cam engine and five-speed transaxle gearbox with an enclosed torque tube driveshaft. The Coupe was followed by an open version, the 330 GTS. Designed by Pininfarina, a total of just 100 spiders were built between 1966 and 1968. This 330 GTS is believed to be the 49 th built. Originally used as the 1967 Turin Salon display car, this 330 GTS was imported by Luigi Chinetti Motors to North America later that year. This 330 was originally Azzurro with a black interior and was supplied with Factory air-conditioning and electric windows. Previously from long term ownership in the USA by a well-known Ferrari collector, the 330 GTS was displayed at many Ferrari Club of America Concours events, with first place awards in 1987 and 1991 at the FCA Concours at Wolf Trap Farm and Washington. The 330 also took first place at the 1994 Cavallino Classic and received awards at the Monterey International Ferrari Concours in 1994 and Meadow Brook Hall Concours in 1995. Recently acquire
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 This fabulous Jaguar is a late example of the iconic XK120 being less than 100 chassis numbers away from the last roadster built in RHD. It was delivered, as a company car, to F Parham Ltd, in Gillingham, Kent in July of 1953. This company was involved in construction and boat building in the Medway area and the car was the personal transport of the Managing Director, a Mr Leonard Francis Parham, who was a keen rally driver at the time and it is likely he drove the car competitively in this period. Research is still ongoing with the Parham family and Mr Parham himself who remains an enthusiastic motorist at the age of 99. After Parham’s ownership, the XK passed through three subsequent owners before being acquired in January 1968 by a young engineer, Mr Douglas Potter. Like Parham, Potter was motorsport enthusiast and over the next two years or so he utilised his engineering skills to develop his XK for racing purposes (for example increased engine capacity, wire wheel conversion, improved brakes) and achieved some success in the emerging XK Register racing series with multiple appearances at the major UK circuits of the period including

Matching numbers, original factory colour scheme of Opalescent Dark Green with Suede Green interior, this RHD car was earmarked by Jaguar chairman Sir William Lyons and donated as a prize in a raffle to raise funds for the Motor Industries Benevolent Fund (BEN). The winner of the E-Type used the car in competition during 1962. Total ground up 3500 hour concours restoration performed by JD Classics to original specification and completed in 2012, correctly stored and maintained by JD Classics since restoration.

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1937 Jaguar SS100 3.5 Litre This SS100 3.5 Litre was manufactured on 30th November 1937 and finished Gunmetal coachwork with silver/black hide and right hand drive steering. The original distributor was Charles Attwood of Wolverhampton who sold it to A.N.Twentyman on 4th December 1937. Within the history file are copies of original service records from 1945-1950 from Jaguar Cars Ltd showing regular maintenance whilst under the custodianship of LT.Cmdr. Whitby of Bristol and later J.P.H.Whitly Esq. Many years later the SS100 was sold to Germany where it was regularly driven and participated in a number of rallies and historic events across Europe (a previous German title document is held on file.). Repatriated to the UK in 2007 since when it has been regularly maintained by JD Classics on behalf of its owner and prepared for various vintage events. The SS100 has competed successfully in The Flying Scotsman rally and London to Edinburgh and would be a welcome entry on those events again and the many others that it is eligible for including the Mille Miglia.

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 Mercedes took a strategic decision in the 1960’s to develop more usable and more powerful Sports Cars than their earlier 190 SL version of the W 113 model. The plan was to build a comfortable two seater which was to be smaller and less expensive than their illustrious 300 SL Roadster but never the less built to Mercedes’ usual high quality standards. Hence the evolution of the 230 /250 / 280 SL’s on the W 113 platform exhibiting excellent road holding and enjoying superb visibility. The concave hardtop inspired the name “Pagoda” to which these cars are still affectionately referred today. The 280 SL was built from 1967 – 1971 and was designed to be the ultimate version of the car with its larger more powerful engine (170 PS power and 244 Nm torque in European specification) all round disc brakes and improved suspension. The 280 SL evolved from a Sports Car into a comfortable grand tourer as enhancements were progressively made throughout the car’s production lifespan. Almost 24,000 280 SL’s were produced of which over half went to the U.S. usually equipped with the 4 speed automatic transmission. U.S. specification cars were subject to mo
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1952 Jaguar XK120 LHD 3.4 Litre Fixed Head Coupe, Pastel Green Metallic with Suede Green Leather Interior When Jaguar stunned the world with its new XK120 in 1948 few would have thought that the elegant styling of the original open two seater, or roadster, could be improved on. That thinking was challenged in 1951 when arguably the most beautiful model of Jaguar ever produced was unveiled, the Fixed Head Coupe. Reminiscent of the Bugatti Atlantic, the new coupe was based on the roadster but incorporated a teardrop shaped roof that successfully joined the front and rear design elements in one sublime flowing body. The coupe retained the chassis and mechanicals of the roadster, with some minor changes to accommodate the new body, and so the new model combined the sporting pedigree of its predecessor with the enhanced looks and luxury of the new design. That the coupe proved to be strong success with the public is underscored by the production numbers with over 2500 examples produced, the majority in LHD.

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 "Ford Escort RS1600 - The Potent Mix". This was how Ford's advertising campaign announced the Escort RS1600 to the world in early 1970. A combination of Escort Twin Cam chassis and running gear allied with Ford's newly developed Cosworth sixteen-valve twin cam BDA (Belt Drive Type A) engine unit. The announcement heralded the birth of what was to become, along with its Mk11 descendant the RS1800, arguably the most successful rally car of the 1970's. The RS1600 amassed an impressive tally of victories from the forests of the RAC, with a 1972-74 hat-trick, to the 1000 Lakes with five wins, the Arctic stages of Finland, the Heatwave in New Zealand and possibly the toughest car test on earth in East Africa, the Safari which the Escort won in 1972. XPU 216L, the Ex-Works Ford Escort RS1600 first driven by Roger Clark on the 1973 East African Safari was prepared by the Ford Boreham Competition Department in April 1973. XPU was also driven by Tony Pond (1973 Scottish), Russell Brookes (1973 RAC), and Andrew Cowan (1974 World Cup). A previous owner who acquired the Escort in 1991 carried out a complete restoration to full works specification, rec

The most successful competition SS100. Period Brooklands history. Part of the SS car club team for the 1938 RAC Rally. Supplied new with factory prepared competition engine. Specification included cylinder head with K965 valves, high compression pistons on hyduminium con-rods, Fescol crankshaft & Scintilla magneto. With Bob's considerable lightening to the chassis by way of holes in the main rails the car was quicker than some of the 3.5 litre cars it competed against. In 1946 Croydon Garage purchased the car and sold it to Dirt Track and Midget car driver Alvin (Spike) Rhiando, he would use the car to tow his 500cc race car around the UK. In 1948 the car was sold to Peter Richley for £150. Peter would keep the car for the next 20 years but never had the car out on the road, he sold the car to a SS restorer. In 1976 Michael Roberts would become only the 5th owner of ‘DYL’. Michael restored the car and enjoyed it for over 20 years. The car then

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 The Ferrari 308 GTB was introduced at the 1975 Paris Motor Show as a replacement for the 246 Dino and to supplement the Bertone-shaped 308 Dino GT4. The new mid-engined two-seater was an instant success with both the motoring press and the general public, who appreciated the performance delivered by the centrally positioned 2.9 litre V8 and the design elements carried over from the popular 246 including side panel air intakes, twin tail lights and recessed curved rear window. Like many of its contemporaries, the 308 GTB also received the fashionable “wedge” styling treatment but crucially Pininfarina exercised a degree of restraint in its application and the resulting design was both fresh and modern while retaining the best of the Ferrari traditions. However, perhaps the most notable feature of the early 308 GTBs was the material used for the bodywork which, for the first 800 or so cars, consisted almost entirely of fiberglass with only the bonnet being made in aluminium. This was a first for Ferrari and to this day the Vetroresina (which means fiberglass in Italian) remains the only model the factory has produced in this material. The r
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 Tom Walkinshaw had won the European Touring Car Championship in 1984 at the wheel of an XJ-S and prior to the launch of the XJR-S was producing body and suspension kits for the XJ-S at his JaguarSport Company. To further improve the sporting image of the XJ-S, the factory sanctioned an official model incorporating Walkinshaw’s enhancements – the XJR-S. Introduced in 1988, a special XJR-S version of the V12 5.3-litre car was produced by JaguarSport, a separate company owned 50:50 by Jaguar and TWR. The car had a distinctive body kit, special alloy wheels and suspension and handling improvements. The first 100 cars were known as "Celebration Le Mans" models to commemorate Jaguar's 1988 win at the Le Mans 24 Hours and were only sold in the UK. Between 1988 and 1989 a total of 326 XJR-S cars were produced with the 5.3-litre engine. After September 1989 the XJR-S was produced with a special upgraded 6.0-litre engine with a Zytek engine management system. This engine was upgraded from the standard 6.0-litre engine used in the late XJS models. The XJR-S was produced until 1993. A total of 787 coupes and 50 convertible cars were built for the wor
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 The original 365 GT4 BB was produced between 1971 and 1976 with a mid-mounted flat 12 cylinder engine. The flat 12 cylinder arrangement was referred to as a Boxer but the 180° V12 was not a true boxer engine, but rather a flat engine. The next generation of BB was launched in 1976 as the 512 (5 litre) with little change in aesthetic appearance to the original 365 BB. The new car had dry sump lubrication and an increase in torque of around 10% retaining the same BHP of 360. The example offered here is a 1981 left hand drive 512BB in Rosso Corsa with Black Leather, sold new to Mr James Landrum of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and is from a total production of 929 cars produced between 1976 and 1981. One of the most original and un-restored examples in existence with only 820 Kilometres from new, 715 of which were prior to delivery. The factory clocked up 400 Km’s and 315 Km’s were covered during EPA emissions testing when new in the USA.

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1951 Jaguar Mark V Drophead RHD The Jaguar Mark V was launched in October 1948 at the London Motor Show at the same time as the XK120, with which it shared a stand. While the XK120 was undoubtedly the star of the show, the Mark V was also an immensely popular car and would go on to outsell the XK120 by a significant margin. In contrast to its sportier cousin, the Mark V retained elements of pre-war styling in its overall design and used the older overhead-valve pushrod type of engine, which had originally been manufactured by Standard in the late 1930s. However, in spite of its more conservative appearance, the Mark V did incorporate a number of innovations including a completely new chassis design, independent front suspension (featuring double wishbones and torsion bar), hydraulic brakes and an all pressed steel body. In all almost 10,500 Mark Vs were produced from 1948 to 1951 with both 2.5 and 3.5 Litre engines and in Saloon and Drophead configuration, the latter being the rarer of the two body styles. Recently arrived, the example offered here is a 1951 car and one of the rarer models of the range being one of only 108 RHD Dropheads

While all variants are consistently in high demand due to their looks, performance, history and investment potential, those cars with unique historical features are particularly sought after. The example offered here is one such car having been originally used by Ogle Design Ltd as a design prototype to demonstrate to the factory how the interior of the forthcoming DB6 could look. Modifications included a completely new layout of the dashboard and glove compartment, addition of a new centre console, central opening armrest (which was hinged at the rear), chrome plated ashtray, simpler V-patterned seat design, redesigned interior door panels (with a new interior door release handle) and completely new trim panels to the rear parcel shelf. Many of these modifications were subsequently adopted on the DB6 with the seating design being one of the most noticeable features. In addition to its fascinating history this car has also recently benefited from a no expense spared 3000 hours body off restorati

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 This delightful Porsche is an exceptionally original 911 E Targa that has covered less than 6000 miles from new and has been in single family ownership for the majority of its life. The Porsche 911 E was introduced in 1969 and designed as a more up-market yet still sporting model to fill a gap between the more sedate 911 T (Touring) and the high performance 911 S (Super) models. It was offered with both Coupe and Targa bodies and, like the 911 S, came fitted with the Bosch mechanical fuel injection system from which it derived its “E” designation (Einspritzung being German for injection). Another new feature of the 911 E were the self-adjusting hydropneumatic front suspension struts, which combined the functions of springs, shock absorbers and antiroll bars and automatically compensated for luggage weight in the boot. To underline the 911 E’s position as a more luxurious model it came standard in most markets with the "comfort" package of features: including ventilated brake discs with aluminum calipers, velour carpeting, a leather-covered steering wheel, heavy bumper rub strips and rubber guard inserts, chrome rocker-panel trim, and gold

Car number E14 LS was constructed in March 1966, registered PHK614D and immediately assigned to Jim Clark for use at Oulton Park on 2 nd April, although the meeting was disrupted by poor weather. The next outing was at Snetterton a week later where fellow Formula 1 driver Peter Arundell took the car to a 2 nd in class and 5 th overall finish in the Archie Scott Brown Memorial Trophy. Over the course of the next month two more 2 nd in class results would be achieved at Goodwood and Silverstone with Arundell and Jacky Ickx driving. In May the car was used as a spare car at Crystal Palace and in June the engine was converted to fuel injection by BRM. The first race with the new engine was the Grand Prix support race at Brands Hatch on 16 th July where Sir John Whitmore achieved a 1 st in class victory and 4 th overall finish.
