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. The 512 still retains the protective plastic seat and sill covers fitted by the factory prior to delivery (seat covers have been removed but accompany the car).

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1963 DB4 Series V Vantage Coming soon this is a 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 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 including a heated re
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
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1965 Aston Martin DB5 'Ogle' Saloon to Vantage Specification RHD There can be few British sports cars that are as iconic as the Aston Martin DB5. 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
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 The Lotus Cortina offered here is one of only two Group 5 works cars that were built by Lotus for the 1966 British Saloon Car Championship. 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. The car was back at Brands Hatch in August for the Guards International meeting and on this occasion Peter Arundell placed 3 rd overall and 2 nd in class. Arundell was the driver fo

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 In 1967 the seeds were sown for what would become one of Porsche’s rarest and most desirable models, the 911SR. At this time Porsche started development of the first 911 designed purely for motorsport, the 911R, which featured lightweight body panels and an uprated 210 bhp engine. To meet homologation requirements, the 911R spawned racing versions of the 911S and 911T, which competed in Group Three GT racing in the 1968 and 1969 seasons. These cars were similar to the 911R but had somewhat flared wheel arches to house the wider 7-inch rear wheels. By 1970 changes to the regulations allowed even wider wheels to be used and Porsche further redesigned the 911S to accommodate them. It was this model that Porsche used as the basis for a very limited run of cars that were designed specifically for GT racing and rallying and were designated the 911SR. Built between 1970 and 1972 it is believed that out of a total of 1740 911S coupes, only 21 examples were constructed as SRs by the factory, although a number of other cars were subsequently retrofitted with an upgrade package that brought them up to SR specification. As each car was built for a sp
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1953 XK120 Special Equipment Roadster LHD This delightful Jaguar was constructed on 6 th February of 1953 and sold via Hornburg of Los Angeles to its first owner a Mr Carlin O Schaeffer later that spring. Being a special equipment car it came fitted from the factory with wire wheels and sported twin exhausts, higher lift cams and an 8:1 compression engine, delivering 180 bhp versus the 160 bhp of the standard model. It was originally finished in Battleship Grey paint with Biscuit and Red interior and a Black hood. Unusually for an exported car, the history of this particular example is very well known, primarily because it remained in single family ownership for the vast majority of its 63 years. The most recent owner, a Mr Ken Purchase, bought the car in 1959, at which time it was Black, and over the next 57 years he had it repainted twice, initially in Pastel Blue Metallic and latterly in Old English White as part of a ten year bare-metal chassis off restoration, which was completed in 2013. Since that time the car has been shown at a number of concours events in the United States before being repatriated to the UK in 2016. Having benef

Diamond Silver with Black leather interior and Black Everflex roof. The original factory invoice and build sheets show this car was ordered for the 1971 Earls Court Motor Show. The Bentley was then sold by Rossleigh Ltd of Edinburgh to D.M. Hall and Son of Edinburgh on 29 th January 1972. Factory extras include Everflex roof, Leather headlining, Whitewall radial ply tyres, Nylon rugs to front and rear, internally adjustable mirror to driver’s door, Air horns, Fire extinguisher and Front seat head rests. The Factory build sheet also confirms that the 'white seat piping' was deleated during final specification and the charge 'was to follow'. This Corniche was restored by Centurion Motor Company in 2012 after a period of storage. Supplied with original tool kit and Wood rim steering wheel. The Bentley T-Series was produced from 1965 to 1980. It was announced and displayed for the first time at the Paris Motor Show on 5 October 1965 as a Bentley-badged version of the totally redesigned chassis-less Rolls Royce Silver
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB 6C RHD Short Nose This rare Ferrari was originally owned by well-known businessman and philanthropist Gerald Ronson and is one of only five 275 GTB Short Noses built in right hand drive with six carburettors. Ordered in April of 1965 this car was delivered to Mr Ronson via Maranello Concessionaires and HR Owen Ltd in May of that year. Original correspondence on file from this time shows that it was ordered in Rosso Cina paint with Black leather and checked Grey cloth seats, although Mr Ronson changed this prior to delivery and the car was actually finished with Black all-leather seats highlighted with Red piping. Other features specified by Mr Ronson included light alloy wheels, Radiomobile radio with roof-mounted aerial, Mintex M33 soft-pad brakes, seat belts and the optional ‘Silent Travel’ package, which comprised extra sound deadening material in the interior and the engine bay. Interestingly Mr Ronson also initially specified that the car be fitted with three twin-choke carburettors but reserved the right to upgrade to a six carburettor configuration, without additional cost to him, should this prove unsatisfacto
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello RHD Launched in 2002 the 575M Maranello is a front engine rear wheel drive two seat grand tourer built by Ferrari as a replacement for the 550 Maranello. While superficially similar to its predecessor, the 575 included minor styling changes penned by Pininfarina as well as some more substantial technical improvements and a revised interior. The more significant changes included larger disc brakes, an enlarged and more powerful engine (delivering a top speed of 202 mph), improved weight distribution and adaptive suspension technology. The 575 also included a choice of two six speed transmissions including a conventional manual gearbox and, for the first time on a Ferrari V12, Magneti Marelli's semi-automatic 'F1' gearbox. This particular example is a UK delivered Right Hand Drive car that was fitted with the F1 gearbox from new and has the added benefit of having been upgraded by Maranello Sales Ltd in 2004 with the highly desirable Fiorano handling package and subsequently a Tubi exhaust system. Delivered to its first customer in Twickenham in July of 2002 it was finished in the very rare colour scheme of Verde
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 This beautiful XK140 roadster is a highly desirable “MC” model with factory fitted C-Type head and the very rare 2 inch Sand Cast carburettors, originally provided by the factory as optional tuning equipment. 1954 saw the latest iteration of Jaguar’s classic XK series of sports cars with the debut of the XK140. 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. It is likely that the first owner of this XK140 MC, a Mr A F Edmonson of Hollywood, California, was one of these enthusiasts as he also ordered the rare 2 inch Sand Cast carburettors from the factory, which were a special tuning kit normally fitted to cars with competition in mind. While it is not known if this car ever saw competition it i

By the late 1950s Maserati was facing an uncertain future and, in spite of some notable successes on the race track, had been forced to retire from competition and focus on larger scale production of more profitable road-going cars. The first foray into this market was the 3500GT, produced from 1957 to 1964, and the success of this model encouraged Maserati to broaden its focus and develop a 2+2 coupe, with the lucrative North American market specifically in mind. The new model, subsequently christened the “Sebring” in honour of Fangio and Behra’s victory at the 1957 race of the same name, was unveiled in prototype form at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show and finally in its definitive form the following year at Turin. Stylistically the Sebring was closely related to the 3500GT but its lines were slightly more angular than its predecessor, which gave it an appropriately aggressive and purposeful look to match its top speed of 137 mph. The first Sebrings utilised the same 3.5 Litre straight six e
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 This historically important Jaguar is one of only four factory-backed XJ12C Broadspeed race cars and the most original survivor. In March 1976 Leyland Cars announced that the Jaguar marque would return to the world of international racing with its plans to contend the European Championship for Touring Cars with two XJ12C 5.3 coupes, which were to be driven by Derek Bell/David Hobbs and Andy Rouse/Steve Thompson. The cars were built under contract by Broadspeed Engineering Ltd, a tuning and engineering company founded by Ralph Broad, which had previously achieved some success in campaigning MkI BMC Minis and Ford Cologne Capris. Despite the best efforts of drivers and engineers alike, the cars were plagued by misfortune and shortcomings in reliability and the 1976 season ended in disappointment. In 1977 two new lightweight coupes were built to compete with the lighter BMW 3.0 Litre CSL cars but again Derek Bell and Andy Rouse, along with new drivers John Fitzpatrick and Tim Schenken, could not overcome the reliability problems that stemmed from chronic under-investment and 1977 was a repeat of the previous year’s disappointment. With furth
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 This beautiful XK140 roadster has been extensively upgraded by JD Classics and features a comprehensive package of desirable performance modifications to full JD Sport specification. Of particular note is the extended cockpit which affords considerably more leg room than a standard car and allows taller drivers to enjoy this delightful car. Constructed in April 1956, this roadster originally left the factory in LHD configuration as a highly desirable special equipment model, which was exported to Los Angeles, where it was sold through the famous Hornburg distributors. Being a California car it benefitted from a dry climate during its stay overseas and when returned to the UK in recent years was found to be in excellent structural condition and formed a perfect candidate for a full professional chassis-off restoration that was completed by JD Classics in 2012. During the restoration process the car was converted to RHD and received the above mentioned modification to the passenger area, which was undertaken in such a way as to deliver significantly more leg room yet have a minimal effect on the appearance of the cockpit area, which is almo

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 The XJR-15 was the brainchild of Tom Walkinshaw, built by Jaguar Sport a joint venture of Jaguar and TWR, between 1990 and 1992. The car was based on the XJR-9 that won the 1988 Le Mans 24 hours. It was also the first carbon fibre/Kevlar road-going car beating the McLaren F1. Built for a new race series ‘the Intercontinental Challenge’ with production totalling just 53 examples, the XJR-15 was a two-seater V12-engined sports car producing 450bhp from its six-litre alloy, dry sump V-12 which had a Cosworth forged crankshaft, connecting rods, aluminium pistons and fuel delivery via Zytec electronically controlled sequential fuel injection. The transmission was a TWR six-speed transaxle with straight cut gears, which was matched to an AP triple-plate carbon clutch. Due to its lightweight construction the car weighed just 2,315 pounds which gave it a top speed of 215mph with excellent power-to weight and superb handling made this a formidable race car. The 3 race series which offered a winner takes all $1,000,000 prize took place at Monaco, Silverstone and Spa-Francochamps as a support race for Formula One, with the overall winner being Armin
