1988 Porsche 944 Turbo

1988 Porsche 944 Turbo

Lot # 302 (Sale Order: 2 of 22)      

A genuine low mileage Turbo in an unusual colour combination.

A genuine low mileage Turbo in an unusual colour combination.

 

  • Nougat Brown Metallic (1 year only) over Linen leather
  • First delivered to Jones Garage in Jersey on 05/01/88
  • Regularly serviced with stamps corroborating the 21,500 miles
  • First registered in the UK on 18/02/19. Just one owner here
  • Long MOT, full book pack and UK V5c

 

Following the international success of their nimble 924, Porsche designed an all-alloy, 2.5-litre inline-four for their new 944 which they planned to introduce in 1982. Their talented engineers were able to produce a very smooth running four-cylinder engine by utilising two counter-rotating balance shafts running at twice engine speed. The result is a large four-cylinder engine that feels as turbine-smooth as a six.
Cosmetically, the 944's bodywork was revised with wider wheel arches (similar to that of the 924 Carrera GT), a fresh interior and upgrades to the brakes and suspension. With greater visual presence and the performance to match, better handling, stopping power and more creature comforts, the 944 was a natural step forward.
A 'turbo' version of the 944 was always on the cards, and for the 1985 model year, Porsche introduced the 944 Turbo, known internally as the 951. Forced induction boosted the 2.5-litre engine by a healthy 60bhp, up to 217bhp, with the clutch and gearbox uprated to suit.   The Turbo also featured several other changes, such as improved aerodynamics, notably an integrated front bumper, standard external oil coolers for both the engine and transmission, standard 16-inch wheels (optional forged Fuchs alloys), and a slightly stiffer suspension set-up.  The Turbo's front and rear brakes were borrowed from the Porsche 911, with Brembo 4-piston fixed calipers and 12-inch discs and ABS was also standard.
This immaculate 944 Turbo is finished in Nougat Brown Metallic, a comparatively rare colour only offered during 1987/8, with a Linen leather interior. It was delivered to Jones Garage in Jersey on 05/01/88 before being collected by its first proud owner. The car was to remain in Jersey until late 2018 before being registered to its new UK owner on 18/02/19. Given the small size of Jersey, annual mileages tend to be small and according to the Porsche's service records, the car was regularly serviced on mileage requirements, substantiating the indicated 21,500 miles;
  • 25/07/89   1,166 miles
  • 18/05/92   2,100 miles
  • 22/02/95   3,497 miles
  • 20/03/00   4,489 miles
  • 19/07/02   8,118 miles
  • 18/10/06  12,127 miles
  • 01/11/11  17,852 miles
  • 13/11/15  19,886 miles
  • 18/05/18  20,880 miles

  • This is a genuine, low mileage example of these hugely competent little coupes in a rare and desirable colour combination. It has a current MOT and is accompanied by its UK V5c, a full Porsche book pack and the service records.

    1967 Honda S800

    1967 Honda S800

    Lot # 303 (Sale Order: 3 of 22)      

    Honda's famous 'rev-for-ever' little sports car in right-hand drive.

    Honda's famous 'rev-for-ever' little sports car in right-hand drive.

    • A right-hand drive example of Honda's famous 'rev-for-ever' little sports car
    • Full body-off restoration between 2014-17, in great condition that needs to be seen
    • Engine overhauled in 2017 by S800 Club Chairman, a former Rolls-Royce engineer
    • Highly advanced and jewel-like 791cc DOHC four-cylinder engine

      Considering that it was, and probably still is, the world's largest producer of motorcycles, it's not surprising that Honda's first sports cars featured technology borrowed from its Grand Prix-winning two-wheelers. Engines were all-aluminium, twin-overhead-camshaft, four-cylinder units with roller bearings used throughout, and the early 531cc S500 and 606cc S600 models employed a part-chain transmission. Introduced in 1963, the S500 was Honda's first production motor car of any kind. Despite the tiny engine, its performance was amazing, a top speed of around 80mph (129km/h) being achievable under favourable conditions. The engine red line was set at a scary (in 1963) unprecedented 9,500rpm. 
      Launched in March 1964, the S600 was the first of the family to be available as a closed coupé (the S500 was produced as a roadster only) and the first to be manufactured in left-hand drive form for export. It was also the most successful, out-selling both its predecessor and the later S800. 
      Introduced in 1965 at the Tokyo Motor Show, the last-of-the-line 791cc S800 retained the separate ladder-frame chassis and chain drive of its predecessors. After approximately 1,000 cars had been produced, the S800 adopted a more conventional final drive consisting of a prop shaft and coil-sprung live rear axle located by radius arms and a Panhard rod. Front disc brakes, replacing the original drums, were standardised soon after.
      Revving to 8,000rpm and with 70bhp on tap, the S800 was good for almost 100mph and more than capable of giving the larger 'Spridgets' and Spitfires a run for their money.

      'OKK 646F' is a right-hand drive example of Honda's famous 'rev-for-ever' little sports car and was the recipient of a full body-off restoration between 2014-17. The engine was overhauled in 2017 by the S800 Club Chairman, who was a former Rolls-Royce engineer, and the car looks to be in great condition with smart coachwork, an excellent interior and dashboard, a very tidy engine bay, and good wheels and tyres. Coming from careful ownership for the past few years, this 'little jewel' of an S800 is being offered at an attractive estimate and is worthy of serious consideration.

      1975 BMW 3.0 CSi (E9) Coupe

      1975 BMW 3.0 CSi (E9) Coupe

      Lot # 304 (Sale Order: 4 of 22)      

      One of comparatively few UK-RHD CS Injection Coupes.

      One of comparatively few UK-RHD CS Injection Coupes.

      • A superb example of the hugely desirable, Karmann-built, 200bhp coupe
      • Recently having undergone a thorough restoration by Classic Legends
      • Over £20,000 spent on a bare metal respray in the rare period colour of Turkis Blue
      • Full mechanical and interior overhaul, retrimmed, wood restored and all electrics operational
      • This is one of only 207 right-hand drive cars built during the last two years of production

      The post-war renaissance of BMW began in earnest in the 1960s with the introduction of two pivotal models, the compact 02-Series - the forerunner to the huge-selling 3-Series - and a larger, visually striking CS sports coupé, referred to internally as the E9, which evolved to become the 3.0 CSi, the car offered here. With its beautiful lines, purposeful stance and pillarless doors, styled by famed German coachbuilder Karmann, the CS grabbed instant attention. Powered by a superbly engineered straight-six, three-litre engine, this fast, sharp-handling cruiser had the performance to match its looks. BMW now had a new face that would come to define the company's image for the rest of the century.

      In 1971, the 3.0CS made its debut in the UK, followed swiftly by the introduction of the more powerful 3.0CSi fuel injected version, becoming BMW's first 200bhp plus machine and giving it real on the road punch. In recent years, sale prices of its big brother, the legendary 'CSL' have dramatically risen and, not unnaturally, the CSi is beginning to follow.

      This particular example is a UK, right-hand drive car and is number 43 of the final batch of 207 RHD cars made between October 1973 and November 1975, although approximately 250 UK-RHD cars were built prior to this. It was purchased by our vendor some years ago and he entrusted Classic Legends of Northampton to completely recommission it with the intention of creating a totally usable 'Classic'.

      It underwent a bare metal respray with a colour change from White to the stunning Turkish Blue (Turkis Blau) it now wears so well. The vinyl roof was professionally applied, the interior was fully restored and the seats re-trimmed in a period fabric, the wooden dashboard and fascias restored, all switchgear checked and functioning, and naturally the car was completely overhauled mechanically. The final account was a little over £22,000 which seems very reasonable, and with the value of CSLs and CSis on the rise,  this stunning car seems very sensibly guided and may well turn out to be a wise investment.

      1973 Ford Escort 1600 Mexico

      1973 Ford Escort 1600 Mexico

      Lot # 305 (Sale Order: 5 of 22)      

      A lovely, UK-supplied, Mk 1 Mexico from a private collection.

      A lovely, UK-supplied, Mk 1 Mexico from a private collection.

       

      • An original 1600 Mexico correctly finished in Monza Blue with white stripes
      • A combination of the Type 49 body-shell, the 1600cc Kent 'crossflow', and the 2000E gearbox
      • Clearly restored to the highest standards. Full engine rebuild in 2015 (invoice in file)
      • Bought by our vendor in 2016 and offered from his private collection
      • A very fine example offered at a sensible guide.

      The Ford Escort Mexico was introduced in November 1970 and was so named because of Ford Motor Company's victory in the World Cup Rally. This rally started in London on 19th April 1970 and finished some 16,000 miles later in Mexico. Originally Ford intended to use Escorts with the Twin Cam or BDA engine, but after some local reconnaissance, it was decided that high speeds and high power were less important than reliability and ease of servicing, and therefore the 'Kent' pushrod engine was used in the Escort shell.

      It seems likely that Ford already had plans to produce a high-performance Escort to fit in the range between the 1300GT and the Twin Cam/RS1600, but their victory in Mexico provided an ideal platform to launch such a model. The engineers at the newly formed A.V.O (Advanced Vehicles Operations) quickly developed the 'Mexico', marrying the Type 49 bodyshell as used in the Twin Cam and RS1600 with the 1600cc Kent 'crossflow' engine and 2000E gearbox. So, effectively, the Mexico was basically a re-engined Twin Cam / RS1600.

      The Mexico became AVO's most successful and numerous of the 'Rally Sport Escorts,' and had a number of advantages on the road, in that it had good performance, was easy to maintain, relatively easy to insure, and above all it was great to drive, something which is still very true today.

      Offered here is an original, UK-supplied 1600 Mexico correctly finished in Monza Blue with White stripes. Purchased by our vendor in 2016, it has remained in his private collection since but he is in the fortunate position of being able to shuffle his collection around every few years and has only used the little blue Ford occasionally.

      The car has clearly been fully restored to a very high standard and within the car's history file is an invoice for a full engine rebuild dating from 2015. Also in the file is a communication from the DVLA detailing the car's nine former owners.

      The Mk1 Escort Mexico remains high on most enthusiast's 'Wish List' and this is a very fine example offered at a sensible guide.

      1998 Ferrari 550 Maranello

      1998 Ferrari 550 Maranello

      Lot # 306 (Sale Order: 6 of 22)      

      Front-engined V12 Grand Tourers, the stuff of Ferrari legend.

      Front-engined V12 Grand Tourers, the stuff of Ferrari legend.

       

      • UK-supplied, RHD, 21,000 miles backed up by a complete and documented maintenance history
      • Timeless Ferrari colour combination with virtually unmarked Rosso Corsa paintwork and Crema leather upholstery
      • Original Ferrari book-pack, tool kit, car cover and a large history folder with a wealth of service history
      • One of the best we have seen, if a 550 Maranello has been on your radar, now is the time for action

       

      Firmly placed in Ferrari's history as one of their finest modern-era big GTs, the 550 Maranello's combination of elegant lines and legendary front mounted 12-cylinder engine, meant that these cars had the potential to become instant classics. Following in the footsteps and sharing the DNA of the 365 GTB/4 'Daytona', the 550 Maranello is inevitability compared to its forbear, however, few front-engined Ferraris have justified that comparison quite like the 550 Maranello.

      Styled by Pininfarina, like its illustrious predecessor, the new car was similarly proportioned, adopting the classical combination of long bonnet, small cabin and a truncated tail. Classic Ferrari styling cues include a bonnet air scoop and hot air outlets behind the front wheel-arches recalling the great Competizione Ferraris of the past, whilst the rear incorporates Ferrari's characteristic twin circular lights.

      The heart of any Ferrari is its engine, and the Maranello's 48-valve, 5.5-litre V12 developed 485bhp at 7,000rpm. The power-train was housed in a tubular steel chassis, clothed in aluminium coachwork, while the all-independent suspension incorporated dual-mode (normal/sports) damping, switch-selectable by the driver, which was complemented by speed-sensitive power-assisted steering.

      The six-speed manual gearbox complements a slightly more even torque curve ensuring that the power delivery was a little less frenetic, whilst excellent weight distribution and delightful road manners make the 550 a truly refined driving machine, whilst still capable of almost 200 mph. With styling that is ageing particularly well, a high-quality cabin, generous stowage, and an enormous 100-litre-plus fuel tank, the 550 Maranello really is the consummate 'European Grand Tourer' in the true Ferrari mould.

      This UK-supplied, right-hand-drive Ferrari 550 Maranello was delivered new on the 01/08/98 to Mr Douglas Hall, a director of Newcastle United Football Club, tastefully specified in the classic and timeless colour combination of Rosso Corsa and Crema leather with Bordeaux carpets. Clearly, this example has been well cared for over the years as the service record is full and complete, backed up by a wealth of invoices from main agents or highly regarded Ferrari marque specialist. The Ferrari leather bound book-pack is present containing the original stamped service book and operator manuals, the tool kit is complete, and the car will also be accompanied by its original Ferrari car cover. 

      Having covered just 21,000 miles, the 550 still presents beautifully, the paintwork retains a deep gloss and the interior is excellent, as you would expect from a Ferrari of this era and low mileage. The V12 fires into life with the very first turn of the key and produces a very pleasing exhaust note and our vendor informs us that the car drives very well and has only required routine maintenance during his ownership. Overall this is a delightful Ferrari, well maintained and stored correctly. 

      To summarise, this is a lovely example of the last of these hand-built Ferraris in timeless colours, with manual transmission, low use, and a full and complete service record.  On offer at a realistic guide, these capable GTs rarely come to market in such good order and this could be an opportunity not to be missed. 

      *Please contact our office to request further information such as a full breakdown of the car's service record or, if you are new to purchasing from an auction, to find out more on how to register to bid on this Lot.

      1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 V8 Coupe

      1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 V8 Coupe

      Lot # 307 (Sale Order: 7 of 22)      

      Powerful, comfortable and good looking, with a certain cachet.

      Powerful, comfortable and good looking, with a certain cachet.

       

      • UK delivered, RHD, V8 Coupe presented in its factory colour scheme of Metallic Silver over black leather
      • Showing less than 46,500 miles and in superb overall condition, offered with a fresh MOT
      • Fitted in 2017 with a period radio, a discreet connection for an MP3, four speakers and new boot carpet 
      • Recent new floors, brakes, suspension and carpeting at a cost of £4,000
      • Good history folder containing an abundance of documentation and invoices demonstrating caring ownership

       

      The 3.5-litre version of the 280SE typifies the resurgence of larger-engined Mercedes-Benz models that began in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when the progressive easing of fiscal constraints, which had dissuaded customers from buying cars with large capacity engines, encouraged the German manufacturer to offer bigger, more potent power units. Thus, the ultra-luxurious 280SE Coupé/Cabriolet and 300SEL saloon were the models chosen by Mercedes-Benz to launch its magnificent new 3.5-litre V8 engine in 1969. An over-square design featuring a cast-iron block and aluminium alloy cylinder heads, each equipped with a single overhead camshaft, this all-new, state-of-the-art power unit produced 200bhp courtesy of Bosch electronic fuel injection and transistorised ignition. Thus equipped, the Coupé/Cabriolet was good for 125mph with 60mph whispering by in 9.5 seconds, a substantial improvement on the six-cylinder version's figures.

      Although the equivalent SEL saloon used the 'New Generation' bodyshell, the Coupé and Cabriolet kept the elegant coachwork that had debuted back in 1959 on the 220SE and, as befitted top-of-the-range luxury models came equipped with automatic transmission, air conditioning, power windows and a stereo radio as standard. Significantly, the 280SE 3.5 was to be the final model to feature this long-established and much-admired body style, and today, these last-of-the-line classics are highly sought after by discerning Mercedes-Benz collectors. 

      This, tastefully specified, 1971 example was, according to a copy of the Mercedes-Benz data card, destined for the UK and finished in (DB 180) Metallic Silver, the colour it wears today, with a black leather interior (241). The car has recently benefitted from some restoration work, mainly to the under-body by a previous owner, television actor and noted Mercedes enthusiast, Gary Mavers. New floors were installed to allay the common 280SE rust problem and new brakes, suspension and carpeting were fitted at the same time with receipts on file to the value of around £4,000. The underside now presents as well as the rest of the car.

      Further restoration work, carried out in 2017, includes an outlay of £2,600 on the interior including the fitting of a period radio, a discreet auxiliary connection for MP3 music playback, four speakers, and new boot carpet. The leather interior, wood and chrome fittings are in superb period condition, with beautiful patina, in fact, the whole car is excellent. JYY 95J is supplied to auction with an MOT until April 2020, showing an odometer reading a shade over 46,500 miles.

      To conclude, the 280SE Coupé has a discreet opulence and the smooth 3.5 V8 engine, mated to the seamless automatic Mercedes gearbox, enables powerful but peaceful progress. These smooth big Coupés have a certain cachét and would be comfortable in St.Tropez, St.Moritz, St.John's Wood, and even St.Evenage!

      1999 Ferrari F355 GTS F1

      1999 Ferrari F355 GTS F1

      Lot # 308 (Sale Order: 8 of 22)      

      UK-supplied, right-hand-drive specified with the F1 paddle-shift gearbox.

      UK-supplied, right-hand-drive specified with the F1 paddle-shift gearbox.

       

      • 1 of 74 F355 GTS F1 delivered to the UK, showing just 34,500 miles and finished in Rosso Corsa
      • Longitudinally mounted 375bhp V8 with an F1 electro-hydraulic, 'paddle-shift' six-speed gearbox
      • Lovely interior with Nero leather and Bordeaux carpets. Leather showing very little wear, no sticky switches
      • Accompanied by a full maintenance schedule with no expense spared, complete tool kit and book packs
      • Arguably the most desirable configuration of the F355, examples this good rarely come to market

       

      Inheriting the proportions of its predecessor, the 348, the F355 was outwardly a much better-resolved proposition, both aesthetically and aerodynamically. However, beneath the fabulous styling and smoother skin, were further major advancements, including power steering, variable damping, and a 100cc engine enlargement. The longitudinally mounted 3496cc V8 generated a market-leading 380 horsepower at a spine-tingling 8,250 rpm and the gearbox now had six speeds with a revised synchromesh making gear changes so much smoother. New electronically adjustable shock absorbers varied their stiffness within milliseconds to suit the road surface and the result of all these developments was evident around Ferrari's 1.86 mile Fiorano test track when the 355 was two seconds a lap faster than the 12-cylinder 512 TR. 

      This particular F355 GTS is a UK-supplied, right-hand-drive car specified with the F1 paddle-shift gearbox, Nero leather and Bordeaux carpets, probably the optimum specification for an F355. At the time of launch, the F1 gearbox utilised, as the name suggests, technology descending directly from the 1989 Ferrari Formula 1 programme offering, for the first time in a production sports car, the ability to change gear from the steering wheel without the use of a clutch pedal, an expensive £6,000 option making the F1 the rarest of all F355s produced. A total of 2,577 GTS models were built, with 2,048 delivered with the 6-speed manual transmission and the remaining 529 with the F1 transmission. This was the last production Ferrari to offer a Targa body style until the La Ferrari Aperta.

      Always dry stored correctly, this example presents in superb condition, the paintwork is excellent and the interior shows little signs of wear and, importantly, all of the switchgear notorious for going 'sticky' over time is in good order. To suit our vendors driving position the decision was made to change the standard steering wheel for the more aesthetic early version, however, the original steering wheel accompanies the car. Turn the ignition key to position 1, listen to the pumps prime, fire the engine into life, and the resulting explosion of sound from the Ferrari V8 makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand to attention. Addictive.

      Accompanying this car is a fully documented maintenance schedule, most recently a full cam-belt service in October 2017 at 33,715 miles followed by an annual service in October 2018 at 33,979 miles. The service book is stamped with supporting documents periodically by either respected marque specialists or Ferrari main agents. All books are present as are the tool kits and spare keys with fobs.

      Sitting on the cusp between analogue and digital, the 355 is considered the forerunner of all modern Ferraris and, as the last of the hand-built cars before the 360 and later descendants moved to mass production, will inevitably slip into the role of 'Classic Ferrari' with ease becoming increasingly sought after as time goes by. Examples this good rarely come to market, and in a classic colour combination with a comprehensive history and the desirable F1 transmission, this could turn out to be a rather shrewd purchase.

      One of 17 UK RHD GT2 'Clubsport' examples.

      • RHD/UK-supplied, high spec, original sales invoice, excellent servicing history (most recent 2019 at Porsche Bristol), 56,000 miles
      • During the whole of GT2 production (Series 1 & 2) between 2001-2005, only 129 GT2s came to the UK in total, of which just 17 were Clubsport examples
      • There were only ever 1,287 996 GT2s produced worldwide, with less than 70 of these being in Clubsport (M003) spec
      • A very special, capable and rare car - just think how highly revered 993 GT2s and 911 3.2 Clubsports are now
      For the model year 2001, Porsche launched their most extreme version of 911 (996), the GT2, with no less than 462bhp.  This was an ultra-high-performance model produced both for the racetrack and for the road and was only ever equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive.  
      The GT2 was based on the 996 Turbo, utilising its new 3.6-litre twin-turbo engine, which was directly derived from Porsche’s GT1 race car, incorporating many parts that were tried and tested in long-distance racing, giving Porsche its double victory at Le Mans.  The engine fitted to the GT2 (designation M96/70 S) utilised the newly introduced ‘Variocam Plus’ system but had 10% more power than the Turbo, which was achieved by fitting more potent turbochargers, a modified exhaust system and adapted engine electronics. The GT2 also made use of a race-derived gearbox, which was reworked and fitted with the lubrication system of the GT3 RS, plus the addition of a friction-plate limited-slip differential tuned to match the car’s ultra-stiff suspension which was 20mm lower than the Turbo to achieve a lowered centre of gravity. Coupled with aluminium monobloc ‘Turbo Design’ wheels, a larger 89-litre fuel tank, and completely new front panelling to reduce aerodynamic front-lift at high speeds and increase air intake, the GT2 really was a race-car for the road. Naturally, performance was electrifying with a 0-62mph time of just 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 195mph. 
      The car presented here is a UK-supplied (C16) 2001 Porsche 911 (996) GT2 ‘Clubsport’. This spec was aimed at motorsport enthusiasts, with the main distinguishing features being a roll-cage bolted directly on to the body (supported by the rear suspension struts), race-style seats, a six-point harness for the driver’s seat, fire extinguisher, battery main switch, and no POSIP side airbags. The car has covered a wholly verifiable 56,738 miles with, effectively, just two previous keepers (HPI states it to be three; however, this is the original owner, then his business and then one other).
      This special car is accompanied by an impressive history file which contains both the handwritten order form and the sales invoice from AFN Porsche on London's Park Lane. They state that the options chosen when new were special paint, carbon package, leather console, carbon rear console, leather sport steering wheel and leather steering column casing, front floor mats, leather interior light, carbon door entrance panels, aluminium dials, carbon gearshift and handbrake, top-tint windscreen, centre console, Becker radio/CD, Clubsport package, leather bucket seats, coloured wheel centres, passenger six-point harness, and security glass covering. The total of the two-page invoice was a generous £131,710.
      Ordered new by a businessman and gentleman racer who raced a modern 911 GT2-R and, despite having his own workshop to maintain his racing car, he entrusted the supplying dealer's Reading workshops to maintain the car for the first four annual services, and Porsche Hatfield for the 2006 and 2007 services. Thereafter, he had the car maintained in his own workshop and transferred the registration into the name of his racing team in March 2013. As well as the aforementioned invoices, the history file also contains numerous maintenance invoices, many older MOT certificates, and the handbook pack. 
      The previous owner bought the car in 2016 to join his small collection of Ferrari and Mercedes, however, his expanding restaurant business has dictated that the car was little used, being last serviced under his custodianship at 55,628 miles. Sadly, unforeseen circumstances mean that the car’s current owner, our vendor, who is also a private collector of special cars, must now thin-out his assortment. Regardless of usage (the car has only covered just over 1,000 miles in the last three years) he too has ensured the continuation of the car’s superb maintenance record by having it serviced at Porsche Centre Bristol in April 2019.

      1965 Mercedes-Benz 600 SWB

      Lot # 310 (Sale Order: 10 of 22)      

      A rare right-hand drive example of the formidable 'Grosser'.

      A rare right-hand drive example of the formidable 'Grosser'.

       

      • Built in 1965 and delivered new to Australia, naturally in right-hand drive
      • Registered in the UK on 22/01/08 to the first of two UK registered keepers
      • Meticulously maintained with over £30,000 worth of bills showing particular attention to the suspension 
      • Recent invoices from model specialist Wolfgang Will of Germany for parts for the hydraulic system
      • Total mileage covered is some 120,000, largely immaterial in such a well-maintained car
      • Less ostentatious than the equivalent Rolls-Royce, the 600 is an engineering masterpiece

       

      At the commencement of the 1960s, there were very few options for a head of state, aristocrat, plutocrat, or film star when it came to an ultra-luxurious conveyance. Rolls-Royce dominated the market with the Silver Cloud and Mercedes-Benz, seeing the opportunity, launched the 600, commonly known as the 'Grosser', in 1963. No less imposing than the Cloud, but brimming with modern engineering and cutting edge technology, the supremely well-equipped newcomer featured an overhead-camshaft, fuel-injected, 6.3-litre V8 engine, air suspension with variable ride control, four-speed automatic transmission, all-round disc brakes and power-assisted steering. The occupants enjoyed separate air conditioning systems in both front and rear compartments and the adjustable seating arrangements were powered by a sophisticated system of hydraulics that also operated the windows and assisted in opening and closing the doors and boot lid, in virtual silence, a marvel even by today’s standards.

      The Silver Shadow was to be launched two years later, with the long-wheelbase version designed specifically as a rival to the 600 SWB, but  Mercedes pipped the Rolls by a foot with an overall length of a shade over eighteen feet. The 600 was also offered as a four and six-door Pullman Limousine and the Landaulet, with its rear convertible hood, became a favourite with the Vatican, royal households and numerous governments. Former Grosser owners include Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, Coco Chanel and Aristotle Onassis. Alongside the celebrated, there are of course the less salubrious and virtually every President, whether democratically elected or otherwise, was whisked around in a 600 or the longer-wheelbase Pullman. Very few Grossers were built in right-hand drive, as most of the countries that drove on the left tended to be a bit patriotic and favoured Rolls-Royce, and as such right-hand drive examples of this formidable car are incredibly rare. 

      Built in 1965, and we believe destined for Australia (we have requested a copy data card), this right-hand drive car was registered in the UK on the 22/01/08 to the first of two owners. The car caught the attention of our vendor, actor Gary Mavers, whose passion for rare Mercedes-Benz has been life-long. Not only did the condition and rarity appeal to Mr Mavers but the maintenance records were impeccable and the car had already benefitted from the considerable sums spent by the previous owner, Mr Mander, after he imported the car from Australia.

      The history file has receipted invoices for some £30,000 worth of works, mainly on the underbody, with particular attention to the air suspension bags and the fitting of new air valves along with new wishbones. In 2018, during Mr Mavers’ custodianship, the services of celebrated 600 specialist Wolfgang Will of Germany were used to ensure the hydraulics were in order, in return for around £1,700.  Four new Avon tyres and new rubber door seals were also recently fitted. The car and Mr Mavers were the subjects of a feature in Mercedes Driver magazine in April 2019, copies of which are included in the extensive history file. 

      Believed to be one of only 273 right-hand drive 600 SWB produced, this exquisite looking car is likely to turn heads wherever it goes, and is fast becoming a collectable classic.

      1973 BMW 3.0 CSi

      1973 BMW 3.0 CSi

      Lot # 311 (Sale Order: 11 of 22)      

      A lovely example of the injected E9 finished in a rare colour.

      A lovely example of the injected E9 finished in a rare colour.

       

      • This LHD, manual gearbox, 3-litre CSi was delivered in July 1973 finished in Atlantic Blue
      • During its life, it has undergone a respray in the original colour and been lightly restored in Germany 
      • Repairs to the exhaust, fuel pump and anti-roll bar bush spacers during May 2018 (invoices in the file)
      • Just under 84,000 kilometres indicated and in beautiful condition inside and out
      Emerging from a difficult financial period, BMW felt sufficiently confident in the mid-sixties to return to six-cylinder power for its top-of-the-range models, culminating in 1968 with the launch of the 2500 and 2800 saloons together with a really stylish coupé, the 2800CS. Known by their factory code 'E9', these Karmann-built cars were effectively a development of BMW's existing, four-cylinder 2000CS stretched to accommodate the 2800 saloon's M30 engine, although its platform and running gear had more in common with the earlier car. The 2800CS was, in turn, replaced by the similarly styled 3.0-litre CS in 1971 and the new car brought with it numerous improvements, including four-wheel disc brakes in place of the old disc/drum combination. With 180bhp now available, these were quick cars, and the 3.0CS was capable of speeds in excess of 130mph.
      No sooner, it seemed, had the 3.0CS been announced, than its 'Flagship' status was usurped in the late summer of 1971 by a fuel injected version. This, the 3.0CSi, offered a significant 20 bhp increase in power, albeit slightly toned down by the 3.25:1 final drive fitted to give longer 'cruising-legs'.  Available only with a manual 4-speed gearbox, the emphasis was clearly on sports performance and many feel that the CSi was BMW's first qualifying tilt since the fabulous 507 at joining the 'Supercar' league. However, due to the arrival of the CSL - only a matter of months after the CSi was introduced to the UK in June 1972 - and to the following year's fuel crisis, the injected model was always rare in RHD form with only around 450 making it to the UK.  
      This left-hand drive, manual gearbox BMW 3.0 CSi was first registered on 01/07/73 as finished in ‘Atlantik Blau’ and delivered to the Berlin dealership later that month. During its lifetime, it has been resprayed in the original colour and has undergone a light restoration in Germany whilst under German ownership. Work carried out in May 2018 included repairs to the exhaust, fuel pump and anti-roll bar bush spacers and detailed invoices are in the car's history file. It has recently formed part of the collection of one of Silverstone's most fastidious owners who is in the fortunate position of being able to add to and trim his collection every few years and his CSi is now being offered for sale with the current odometer reading being just under 84,000 kilometres. (52,500 miles).
      These pillarless Coupes are blessed with timeless good looks and this superbly presented example in Atlantic Blue with a cream interior and navy blue carpets is simply delightful.

      1972 Porsche 911 2.4S

      Lot # 312 (Sale Order: 12 of 22)      

      The rare and desirable 'Side Oil Fill' 2.4S.

      The rare and desirable 'Side Oil Fill' 2.4S.

       

      • An Italian market, left-hand drive example imported to the UK in 2002 with 50,976 kilometres indicated
      • Finished in Sepia Brown with a black interior and optioned from new with Recaro sports seats
      • Owned by fastidious enthusiasts since and subject to considerable attention
      • Documented mechanical refresh by Autofarm in 2010 (£20,000). £6,000 more recently at Peter Chambers
      • UK speedometer fitted in 2002 and only 16,700 warranted miles since
      • One of the finest 2.4S available, well sorted and set up, in super condition and superbly detailed

       

      The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the 'S' featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. In 1967 the 911T (Touring) was introduced as a new base model, initially with the 2.0-litre engine in 110bhp form before adopting the 2.2-litre unit along with the rest of the range in 1969, by which time the 911's wheelbase had been extended by 57mm to tame the sometimes wayward handling. Such was the 911's success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them, a state of affairs that led to a substantial proportion being manufactured by coachbuilder Karmann at its Osnabrook factory.

      By this time the models on offer had stabilised at three: the entry-level 911T, middle-ranking 911E, and top-of-the-range 911S, all of which were available as either a closed Coupé or Targa convertible. With the 2.2-litre engine's arrival, a common type of cylinder head was adopted, the differing power outputs being determined principally by valve timing rather than valve sizes as had been the case hitherto. In 1972 all 911 variants received the 2,341cc (nominally 2.4-litre) unit, which in 'S' specification produced around 190bhp, 60 more than the original 911 of 1963.

      For 1972, in addition to the larger engine, the' E' series had a further two revisions. An aggressive new front spoiler was incorporated below the bumper and, in an attempt to move as much weight as possible towards the centre of the car, the oil tank was repositioned inboard of the right rear wheel arch, resulting in the introduction of an external oil filler cap on the right-hand side rear wing behind a flap ('Oel Klappe'). The propensity for petrol station attendants to fill the oil tank with fuel, and the resulting warranty claims, quickly persuaded Porsche to change the design and 1972 'Oel Klappe' cars became difficult to sell, possibly resulting in their comparative scarcity today. As is often the case, that rarity has resulted in the 'Oel Klappe' cars now being the most desirable.

      The car on offer today is a left-hand drive 1972 2.4S finished in Sepia Brown with a black interior and fitted with Recaro Sports seats. It was originally supplied to Italy and following a number of years there, was purchased by a Dutch enthusiast who retained the car until 2002 and looked after it well judging from the number of invoices on file from a Porsche specialist. The 911 arrived in the UK in 2002 and was obviously in largely original condition as indicated in a pre-purchase inspection report completed by Andy Prill. The customer who commissioned the report purchased the car and commissioned marque specialists, Autostrasse, to carry out a major service and deal with any recommendations arising from the report.

      In 2004, the car was offered for sale by well-known Porsche people, Gantspeed, and an email on file confirms the good original, accident-free condition of the car and mentions that 50,976km was on the original speedometer with a further 4,800 miles being covered on the UK mph speedo fitted when the car came to the UK.

      Porsche enthusiast, Robert Barrie, purchased the car from Gantspeed and sent it to be serviced and checked prior to using it on a track day at Goodwood. He used the car minimally, the mileage rising to 9,700 and sold it in 2006. Its next custodian also used it lightly with the car serviced by Autofarm before he, in turn, sold it in 2010 to a gentleman with an extensive collection of special Porsches. As was his way, he sent it to Autofarm for a full inspection and subsequent overhaul and there are invoices on file amounting to in excess of £20,000 for this work. All areas requiring attention were addressed, the gearbox was rebuilt, the engine removed, checked over and detailed, as was the engine bay, the wheels were refurbished, and a myriad of other smaller jobs all extensively documented in a CD. More recently, the 911 has been looked after by Peter C...

      1978 Ferrari 400 GT Series 1

      1978 Ferrari 400 GT Series 1

      Lot # 313 (Sale Order: 13 of 22)      

      Late-production Series 1 with carburettors and a manual gearbox.

      Late-production Series 1 with carburettors and a manual gearbox.

       

      • 1 of only 27 RHD 400GT 340bhp, 6-carburettor, 5-speed manual gearbox cars
      • Four previous owners (two from one family) and less than 45,000 miles
      • Smartly presented in silver grey over red and black leather 
      • Recent service and set up, including timing chains, valve clearances, replacement clutch, fresh fluids
      • Full history dating back to day one. Mileage log from 2013-present listing every journey 
      • Power steering, electric windows, AM/FM radio, all books, tools and wallets present

      The F101 Tipo was first introduced in 1972 in the form of the 365 GT4 2+2, a Pininfarina-penned, three-box design significantly different from the fastback look of its older sisters. By 1976, it had evolved into the 400GT which now utilised a massive 4.8-litre four-cam V12 free from pollution controls and fitted with six twin-choke Weber DCOE carburettors, producing 340bhp and 347 ft/lbs of torque. Ferrari's splendidly equipped new 2+2 also featured self-levelling independent rear suspension, power-assisted steering, electric windows and air conditioning. The 400GT was the first Ferrari to offer an automatic gearbox option which proved so popular, in period, that manual gearbox cars are now a rare find. Just 147 examples of the 5-speed manual 400GT were produced from 1977 until 1979 with very few in RHD and even fewer destined for the UK. The Series 2 was launched in 1979 and was fuel injected which brought the power down from 340 bhp to 310 bhp, a reduction of almost 10%.

      The 400 GT offered here, chassis number 26265 was built in November 1978 and ordered by Brighton Car Concessionaires to be finished in Silver Grey with black striped red leather. It was specified with air conditioning, electric windows, twin mirrors, and a radio. They sold the car in June 1979 to its first proud owner, a Mr Claridge who was a prominent Ferrari and Frazer Nash collector and who already owned a 275 GTB, 250 GTE, 275 GTB4 and Dino 246 GT. On delivery of the 400,  he instructed Lancaster Ferrari to rustproof the car and the original Ziebart guarantee and bungs are still present.

      Invoices in the file show that Maranello Concessionaires serviced the car until Mr Claridge’s death in 1995 and a V5 Certificate, dated February 1996, indicates that the Ferrari was then transferred to the estate who instructed a broker to arrange its sale. It was sold to a  Mr Lawson, the third registered keeper, who had the 400 maintained at a specialist. The penultimate keeper, Mr Pinkerton bought this big GT in 1999 and instructed legendary Cotswold specialists, Bob Houghton Ferrari, to look after the car during his long-term ownership until 2013. Although never publicly available or advertised, a number of conversations over a period of a few months, led our vendor towards this remarkable car. The amount of history with this car is extraordinary and a mileage log has been kept from 2013 until now to further support it.

      It has recently been serviced and set up, including the replacement of the timing chains (as recommended at this mileage), valve clearance service, blow-by system refurbishment, and a replacement clutch assembly along with new fuel lines. All oils and fluids were refreshed along with a host of other work. The original parts that were removed have been kept aside to accompany the car together with a collection of invoices.

      This is an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase 1 of 27 RHD 400 GT carb/manual cars worldwide,  a UK car from new, with an unbroken history portfolio including early correspondence from the dealer to the factory, an abundance of additional paperwork including copies of historic V5 certificates, photographic documentation of the most recent service and other work. It's also accompanied by its tool kit, original Neiman keys, a spare set of four tyres, and book pack.

      1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder Conversion

      1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder Conversion

      Lot # 314 (Sale Order: 14 of 22)      

      Absolutely breath-taking Daytona flawlessly converted. 

      Absolutely breath-taking Daytona flawlessly converted. 

       

      • An original, right-hand drive, UK-delivered car, supplied through Maranello Concessionaires in March 1972
      • Skilfully converted in 1978 by renowned experts, Richard Straman Coachworks, of Costa Mesa, California
      • Recently been lavished with expertise and considerable expenditure totalling close to £70,000
      • Once again resplendent in its original Blue Dino Metallizzato over a classic tan interior with Nero inserts
      • Meticulously maintained, recently replaced clutch and electric power steering
      • When it comes to sheet metal, this is about as beautiful as you could ever hope to find

      Two years after Lamborghini debuted the mid-engined Miura in 1966, Ferrari launched its defiantly traditional and determinedly contrasting alternative, the 365 GTB/4. Almost immediately the 365 GTB/4 gained its ‘Daytona' moniker as a result of Ferrari's 1-2-3 result in the 1967 24-hour race at the famous Florida circuit and the Daytona's engine and handling certainly didn't undermine its racing nomenclature. The 4.4-litre, 4-cam V12 produced an astonishing 352bhp and, despite its, less than slimline, 1,633 kilos, the Daytona was billed as the fastest road car in the world at the time. Not only was 174mph more than brisk, but, crucially, it was a few knots faster than the Miura, returning bragging-rights to Maranello. The five-speed gearbox was mounted at the rear for optimal weight distribution and helped give the Daytona its predictable handling and solid road-holding.

      Like so many Ferraris of the period, the Daytona's beautiful bodywork was designed by Pininfarina with the car built by Scaglietti. The delicate front was cleanly cut with both pop-up and Plexiglas headlight varieties, the rear slope was suggestively rakish, and a Kamm tail provided further clues that this was a serious motor car. The wheel arch flares, although elegant in proportion, are the only real overt notion that this car has significant pace.

      Despite being first ordered and registered in the UK in 1972, our Daytona Spyder, still then in Berlinetta form, became a resident of New South Wales, Australia, in 1973 as the property of multiple Ferrari-owning enthusiast, George Parlby. It was Parlby who commissioned Richard Straman Coachworks of Costa Mesa, California, to convert his prized Daytona to Spyder form in 1978.
      Ferrari ended the production run of NART Spyders after only ten cars but the continuing demand in the US market for them launched the career of Richard Straman. As a young engineer and coachbuilder, he was commissioned in the early 1970s to convert a GTB/4 coupe into a Spyder and the quality of the conversion was so exceptional that other Ferrari owners came forward and several more cars were completed. Over the last three decades, Straman has made countless cars into ragtops one of the most recent being a Ferrari 550 Maranello, a car with strong styling and heritage links to the GTB/4. Despite Straman Coachworks enjoying worldwide recognition for their Spyder conversions, Ferrari seemed unconvinced that there was a substantial market for a ragtop Grand Tourer. Imagine the privileged life our Daytona must have led to have been sent more than 8,000 miles across the Pacific (nearly more than its actually driven to date!) to be converted by marque experts, and all this in 1978!
      Parlby continued to own this car, then wearing red coachwork, until 1992 when it was sold to Coca-Cola Amatil Exec, Mr Dean Willis, still with only 1,667 miles recorded. From here, #15951 then passed through two further notable owners in Australia, before arriving on UK shores in 2008, still displaying less than 6,000 miles. At this point, it had been refinished in Nero with black leather seats with red inserts (commissioned and executed c2000 by the fourth owner in Australia) but importantly still retained the original matching-numbers engine.  
      Since arriving in the UK this superb Daytona has been lavished with expertise and considerable expenditure totalling close to £70,000 with a veritable 'Who's Who' of the collectable Ferrari world, including DK Engineering, Barkaways, Cheshire Classic Cars, and Foskers.
      There's almost too much to mention, but most notable obviously is the outstanding repaint and retrim back to factory original Blu Dino Metallizzato complemented by a high-quality Connolly leather retrim in tan, (not factory original) and beautifully snug dark blue hood with tan tonneau, all of which were executed to an incredibly high-standard by Cheshire Classic Cars in 2013. This Ferrari was then sold by CCC to a customer who chose to have his car maintained by... Click here for more information

      Lot # 315 (Sale Order: 15 of 22)      

      Superbly engineered and oh so stylish.

      Superbly engineered and oh so stylish.

       

      • UK-registered on the 24/09/64 to the first of six owners
      • Comprehensively restored between 2009 and 2011 and well maintained since
      • The restoration included rebuilding the running gear and engine, recent £2,200 bills at specialist
      • The coachwork was attended to with a re-paint in the original colours and a new grille
      • Subtle upgrades to the interior include Blaupunkt radio with MP3 connectivity and seatbelts
      • Solid German engineering and timeless sixties elegance make these gentle cruisers eminently collectable
      The W111/112 series was introduced in 1959 with the slogan “The new six-cylinders – in a class of their own” with a variety of body styles including a saloon, coupé and convertible, cementing Mercedes-Benz reputation for building superbly engineered cars. Engines were a development of their predecessors, the W180/105/128 series, benefitting from modified valve control linkages and straight intake pipes, developing 120 horsepower. The Coupé, designed by Paul Bracq, was particularly elegant with pillarless windows and large glass area. Setting new standards in passive safety, these were the first production cars to feature the Barényi-patented rigid passenger cell with front and rear crumple zones. Safety was also given top priority in the design of the interior. The new models had a padded instrument panel, for example with yielding and, in part, recessed controls, as well as a steering wheel with a padded boss. Also worthy of note was the first use in this form of safety door locks, likewise major contributors to safety in the case of an accident. Between 1959 and 1968 the Sindelfingen plant turned out a total of 344,751 saloons and chassis for the W 111 and 112 model series.
      UK-supplied and registered in September 1964 and with five former custodians, this 220 SEb was the subject of a comprehensive restoration between 2009 and 2011. Bodywork, running gear and the engine all received attention. It was professionally resprayed in its original colour scheme of Burgundy with a contrasting black roof and finished off with a new front grille. 14” steel wheels finished with chrome and body coloured hubcaps replace the original 13” items, improving ride and handling, aided by powered steering. The interior is in pale grey leather with fixtures and fittings, including woodwork all maturing gracefully. A period Bakelite steering wheel sets off the interior, whilst the car benefits from modern day essentials like front and rear seat belts and a Blaupunkt radio with iPod connectivity. Additional work carried out on an already fine car in 2012 totalled over £4,500. Purchased by the current owner in 2013, adding to his small collection of classic cars, the Mercedes has only covered around 8,500 miles since its restoration. DTV 301B (the registration number shown in the photos has been transferred to another vehicle) has recently visited a Mercedes-Benz specialist where it received a thorough service and brake overhaul. 
      A very usable classic, this 220 SEb is ready to be enjoyed by its next custodian.

      1988 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo Targa G50

      1988 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo Targa G50

      Lot # 316 (Sale Order: 16 of 22)      

      The ultimate incarnation of the ‘original’ Turbo.

      The ultimate incarnation of the ‘original’ Turbo.

       

      • UK-delivered, 5-speed G50 transmission, Guards Red paintwork with linen piped red leather electric sport seats
      • Showing 71,725 miles with a complete and documented maintenance schedule recorded over two service books
      • Presented in fabulous condition, paintwork retaining a deep gloss and interior showing very little wear
      • A super rare 930 Turbo Targa, G50, in a classic colour combination, in fine order, a useable and collectable classic Porsche

       

      Having accrued a wealth of experience of turbocharging air-cooled engines from their racing programme, it seemed to make perfect sense for Porsche to utilise that knowledge by applying it to their famous rear-engined sports car, and consequently, at the 1973 Paris Motor Show, they unveiled a prototype turbocharged 911, the ‘Type 930’. Porsche engineers tested both the 2.7 and 3.0-litre engines, with the 3.0 air-cooled flat-six (that could trace its origins back to the 911 RSR) being chosen as it produced more torque low down. By attaching a Kühnle, Kopp and Kausch (KKK) turbocharger, the 930 was the most powerful production Porsche thus far and, suddenly, the 911 was a 'Supercar'.

      The production-ready 911 Turbo was shown at the Paris show in autumn 1974, and not surprisingly in an era when turbocharging was seen as rather exotic, captivated the world's motoring press.  Rightly, it was billed as a supremely fast and luxurious flagship model, combining ballistic performance and head-turning looks with air conditioning, electric windows and other creature comforts. In 1977/78, capacity went up from 3.0 to 3.3 litres producing 300bhp and an air-to-air intercooler was positioned under the rear spoiler. The spoiler was re-profiled and raised slightly to make room for the intercooler assembly, and this meant saying goodbye to the ‘whale-tail' and welcoming the equally distinctive ‘tea-tray'.

      With a four-speed gearbox and 300 horses arriving at the same moment, power delivery was a touch 'peaky', occasionally turning a scenic drive into a drive through the scenery, however, in 1988 the 930 was offered with Porsche's G50 five-speed gearbox smoothing out the power curve and resulting in a much more user-friendly driving experience. The G50 equipped cars from 1988/9 were undoubtedly the ultimate incarnation of the 911 Turbo.

      This fine C-16, UK RHD Targa was delivered new on 22/10/88, finished in Guards Red and is one of very few final year 930 Turbos delivered with the G50 5-speed manual gearbox. This in itself makes this car both sought after and desirable, however, this example was also ordered with the Targa removable roof panel offering open-top motoring and of course the added benefit of security. Also ticked on the options list were; heated electric seats, a Blaupunkt Toronto SQR 46 Stereo Radio Cassette player, Amplifier and Top-tint screen.

      Having covered only 71,725 miles the car remains in remarkable condition, with excellent panel gaps, almost flawless paintwork, a smart Linen Grey leather interior, and a very tidy engine bay. The service record accompanying this car can be regarded as substantial spanning two service books, backed up with paper invoices. Within the owner's file are some old MOT certificates, the original book packs, and a spare set of keys.

      In summary, this is a superb example of these collectable classics with sensible mileage, a complete service record, looks and performance that inspired a generation, and all on offer at a very realistic guide.

      1965 Excalibur SS ex-Tony Curtis

      1965 Excalibur SS ex-Tony Curtis

      Lot # 317 (Sale Order: 17 of 22)      

      The sixth production car and bought new by acting legend Tony Curtis.

      The sixth production car and bought new by acting legend Tony Curtis.

       

      • The sixth production SS Roadster built and bought new by acting legend Tony Curtis in 1965
      • Purchased by Donald S. Gilmore for display at the Gilmore Classic Car Museum until 2007
      • Bought by our vendor and UK registered in 2008. In superb unrestored condition. 6,500 miles
      • 5385cc Chevrolet V8, auto box, steel chassis, aluminium body and independent suspension
      • 0-60 5.7secs and 150mph. Classic & Sportscar Magazine featured. "Every journey is an adventure"
      • Included are the transfer documents from Tony Curtis, and even a photo of him with the car

      The Excalibur story began back in 1964 when renowned industrial designer Brooks Stevens, at that time working as a consultant to Studebaker, was asked to design a show car for that year's New York Auto Show. An avid automobile enthusiast and collector, Stevens was a fan of the pre-war Mercedes-Benz SSK and sold the idea of a 'contemporary classic' take on the German sports car to Studebaker, at that time Mercedes importers. Brooks Stevens had first ventured into automaking on his own account with the Excalibur J, a two-seat sports car on a Ford chassis, that enjoyed a successful, if brief, competition career in the early 1950s. The prototype Excalibur SS was ready three days before the New York Auto Show where it caused something of a sensation, albeit too late to save the ailing Studebaker Corporation. A long list of potential buyers resulted, one of whom - a Chevrolet dealer - asked if the car could be built with a Chevrolet Corvette engine. Stevens was only too happy to oblige. An advertisement in the Wall Street Journal generated sufficient deposits to enable production to start, and in 1966 the company moved into premises in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, trading as SS Automobiles Inc.

      Since then Excaliburs have been owned by many famous celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Steve McQueen, Dick Van Dyke, Burt Lancaster, Ronald Regan, Sonny & Cher, Dean Martin, Jackie Gleason, Rod Stewart, Jay Leno, Arnold Schwarzenegger and of course, Tony Curtis. Having been catapulted to the Hollywood A-list during the 1950s with films such as 'Some Like it Hot' and 'Operation Petticoat', Tony Curtis had it all by 1965. He owned a string of cars that included 1930s Rolls, Bentley and Duesenburgs and probably appreciated the 1930s “look” of the SS but with a modern automatic gearbox and reliable Chevrolet V8.

      The car delivered to Tony, chassis number 1006, was finished in Maroon with contrasting black interior,  and an accompanying photograph shows Tony posing proudly. However, his ownership appears to have been very brief for, on the 16/02/65, the car was bought by philanthropist Donald S. Gilmore for $7,895, as seen in the accompanying Tax Declaration. The declaration is one of two documents that ratify this unique provenance, noting Tony Curtis' then home address at 1178 Loma Linda Drive, Beverly Hills. Mr Gilmore was a friend of Walt Disney and very probably it was he who introduced Tony Curtis and the car to Mr Gilmore. Upon purchase, the car was destined to become one of the star attractions at the soon to be launched Gilmore Car Museum in Michigan where it was on display until 2006. Press clippings from the period state that Mr Gilmore’s brother had achieved nearly 100 miles per hour in the car before it was put on display.

      The car was put up for auction by the museum in 2006  in the same condition it is today with a mileage then of some 6,252 miles. In 2007 the car was for sale with the highly regarded Motorcar Gallery of Fort Lauderdale, Florida whereupon it caught the eye of our vendor Dr David Williams who personally imported it car into the UK, registered as “KSK 693” on the 1st March 2008. As a life long fan of 'The Persuaders!' and finding himself with more in common with Tony Curtis’ Danny Wilde than Roger Moore’s Lord Brett Sinclair the car formed the cornerstone of his collection. Since 2013 Dr Williams has been a valued client of Silverstone Auctions, adding to and trimming his collection over the years with us. 

      As part of a substantial car collection made up of an eclectic mix of low mileage high performance and luxury motorcars, the Excalibur has only been driven on high days and holidays, covering just 200 or so miles during his ownership. The stated mileage of 6,420 miles is highly credible due to the fact that from a month or so old it was in the Gilmore collection and on display in the museum until 2006. The car has featured in a number of articles, including The Times and Classic and Sports Car.

      1997 Ferrari F355 Spider

      1997 Ferrari F355 Spider

      Lot # 318 (Sale Order: 18 of 22)      

      A low-mileage, manual gearbox Spider in a classic colour combination!

      A low-mileage, manual gearbox Spider in a classic colour combination!

       

      •  Finished in Rosso Corsa and Nero with a desirable 6-speed manual gearbox
      •  UK-supplied, right-hand drive showing just 12,582 miles
      •  Offered with a UK V5c. MOT tested until 05/07/19
      •  Full cambelt service by Greypaul Edinburgh Ferrari in October 2018


      The Ferrari F355 is now considered a modern classic, so beautiful, so well-engineered and so well received that it marked the beginning of the end of the old-guard ‘Ferraristi' philosophy that the only "real" Ferraris were ones with 12-cylinder engines. The F355 Berlinetta burst onto the world stage in the Spring of 1994, with the Targa GTS and Spider following in 1995. The new car shared almost exactly the same dimensions as its predecessor, the 348, yet it was virtually a new car, as its flowing coachwork indicated. Many hours of wind tunnel testing influenced the harmonious shape which incorporated an F1-style flat bottom with channelled airflow generating enough downforce to offset any lift.

      The F355's name is derived from its 3.5-litre V8 engine and five valves per cylinder - as denoted by the ‘Cinquevalvole' inscription on the rocker covers, and this longitudinally mounted power unit generates an impressive 374bhp at a spine-tingling 8250rpm. The con-rods are titanium alloy, the clutch is housed in magnesium alloy, and the Bilstein shock absorbers use electronic sensors to provide active damping. In 1994, the Ferrari F355 was a technological tour de force. Around Ferrari's 1.86 mile Fiorano test track, the F355 was two seconds a lap faster than the 12-cylinder, 512 TR and that level of performance, combined with its sensational shape, ensured its success on the world stage.

      This particular example is a right-hand drive 1997 Ferrari F355 Spider registered in the UK on 21/04/97 to its first owner. Finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero interior, this striking car is fitted with the more desirable manual gearbox and was specified from new with air conditioning, a stereo CD player, and black brake callipers. Accompanying the car is the service book which records the latest service in October 2018 carried out at Graypaul Edinburgh Ferrari where the car was the recipient of a major service including cambelts, resulting in an invoice of £2,699.

      The car has had four former keepers and is supplied with a UK V5c, an MOT until 05//07/19, its original handbooks in their leather wallet and its toolkit. This, highly sought-after, 6-speed manual F355 Spider finished in a classic colour combination is now showing just 12,582 miles and is undoubtedly one of the finest 355s on the market today.

      1976 Porsche 911S 2.7 Targa

      1976 Porsche 911S 2.7 Targa

      Lot # 319 (Sale Order: 19 of 22)      

      Very smart, matching numbers, left-hand drive 2.7-litre 911S Targa.

      Very smart, matching numbers, left-hand drive 2.7-litre 911S Targa.

       

      • Dating from March 1976 and finished in Grand Prix White with a black vinyl/tartan fabric interior
      • Spec'd from new with front/rear anti-roll bars, 'S' instruments, black exterior trim, and tinted windows
      • Owned by the President of the ELPA classic car club in Greece for many years
      • The odometer reads a, believed genuine, 20,000 km. (the history file is mainly in Greek)
      • Presented in generally very good condition having been partially restored in 2015
      • Owner's wallet and handbook; Certificate of Authenticity, its UK V5c and an MOT valid until March 2020

      The first of countless upgrades to Porsche's perennial 911 came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Externally distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the 'S' featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. The lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911's handling, and then in 1970 the air-cooled, 'flat six' engine underwent the first of many enlargements: to 2.2 litres. In 1974 all 911 variants received the 2.7-litre unit, hitherto reserved for the Carrera when the latter went to 3.0 litres. Although in non-Carrera tune the 175bhp (DIN) 2.7-litre unit made slightly less power than the old '2.4', it had been skilfully reworked to produce significantly more torque over a much wider rev range and offered noticeably improved acceleration. Coupled to a tolerance of low-lead petrol, vastly superior fuel consumption, and increased tank capacity, the new 911 proved superior to its predecessor in every way as a fast, long-distance tourer. 

      Two years after the Coupés introduction in 1964, a convertible 911 - the 'Targa', named in honour of Porsche's numerous victories in the Sicilian classic – became available. Expected US safety legislation had prompted an ingenious approach to the soft-top 911, the Targa sporting a hefty roll-over bar to protect the occupants in the event of an inversion, together with removable roof and rear hood sections, which were stowed in the boot. For 1969 a quieter and less leak-prone fixed rear window replaced the less than perfect rear hood, and the ever-popular Targa would continue in this form well into the 1990s, sharing countless mechanical and styling developments with its closed cousin along the way. 

      This matching-numbers 911S Targa was invoiced by the factory in March 1976 and dispatched to the Hahn dealership in Fellbach, Germany. The car was delivered finished in Grand Prix White with black vinyl/tartan fabric interior and left the factory equipped with the following options: radio antenna, front/rear anti-roll bars, 'S' instruments, black exterior trim, and tinted window glass. Owned by the president of the ELPA classic car club in Greece for many years, it was purchased by our vendor in October 2018. Although difficult to substantiate from the history file, as a large part of it is in Greek, the odometer reads a, believed genuine 20,000 kilometres. We understand that this 911 has never been abused (with no known accidents) and is presented in generally very good condition having been partially restored in 2015. The car is offered with its owner's wallet and handbook; a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity; its UK V5c Registration document, and an MOT certificate valid until March 2020.

      This attractive, mid-seventies Targa in sparkling Grand Prix White is sensibly guided and would make an excellent entry into the world of 911 ownership.

      2000 Ferrari 360 Modena (Manual)

      Lot # 320 (Sale Order: 20 of 22)      

      One of just 341 manual cars in right-hand drive...

      One of just 341 manual cars in right-hand drive...

       

      • One of just 341 UK-supplied manual 360 Coupes in superb overall condition
      • Showing some 28,000 miles and a great service history, a complete book-pack, tool roll and key set
      • A striking combination of Argento Nurburgring paintwork and Blu Scuro leather interior
      • Optional larger (and more expensive) race seats, Scuderia wing-badges and red brake calipers
      • All important manual gearbox with the evocative open-gate, the ideal partner to the 3.6ltr Ferrari V8

      At the Geneva Show in March 1999, as a replacement for their much-admired F355, Ferrari introduced the 360 Modena to critical acclaim and, not unsurprisingly, within weeks there was a two-year waiting list. The 355 was a tough act to follow, but the 360 was rather special: its all-aluminium construction (a first for Ferrari) was revolutionary, resulting in a much lighter car along with increased rigidity (40% lighter than the 355's steel platform but also nearly 30% cent stiffer), whilst also improving the under-body aerodynamics using knowledge gained from Ferrari's F1 programme. All this combined with the flowing Pininfarina lines, computer-controlled suspension, greater power than its predecessor, and considerably greater torque - immediately made its predecessor, the excellent 355, feel outmoded.

        The Modena also saw a new word introduced into Ferrari reviews: reliability. The engineering had been more thoroughly thought through, and this was (and still is) reflected in lower servicing costs than for earlier mid-engined Prancing Horses. Higher levels of quality too, meant that the 360 became one of the first truly modern Ferraris - a car you could realistically use every day. That doesn't detract from the excitement factor, with strong performance, a searing engine note and very capable chassis.

        The car presented here is a 2000 Ferrari 360 Modena with the all-important manual gearbox. It was supplied new through Graypaul Ferrari Birmingham and looks particularly striking in Argento Nurburgring paintwork with a Blu Scuro leather interior. As well as the manual gearbox, the car has an enviable specification including the desirable larger (and much more expensive) race seats, Scuderia wing-badges and red brake calipers. This wonderful example has covered just 27,825 miles and comes with an excellent service history, the most recent on the 26th March, its original book pack (including service book), tool kit, two keys and the important red remote. 

        The car is in pristine condition and is a real credit to our vendor who has lovingly maintained his 360 to the highest standards with no expense spared. He has owned the car for the last three years and it only comes out on dry days, hence the low mileage. The colour combination is stunning, with the luscious, dark blue leather sports seats and blue carpets complementing the bright silver coachwork beautifully.

        If you are in the market for an extremely well-presented 360 Modena manual in the right colours, with some excellent history, this first-rate Ferrari may well suit perfectly.

        1989 Porsche 911 Supersport Cabriolet

        Lot # 321 (Sale Order: 21 of 22)      

        A lovely three-owner example of a very rare model in lovely condition.  

        A lovely three-owner example of a very rare model in lovely condition.  

        • This lovely Supersport Cabriolet is a C16, UK-RHD, G50 manual box car supplied through A.F.N Porsche 
        • Finished in black with a white full-leather interior and spec'd from new with the M491 (Turbo-look) option
        • Supplied with a detailed history file, original service books and tools and will come with 12 months MOT
        • In professional dry storage but has been fastidiously maintained, most recently by specialists, Export 56 
        • A genuine example of one of the most sought-after models from a classic period in the history of the 911 

         

        Introduced in 1984 and possibly the ultimate version of the 3.2 Carrera was the ‘Option M491-Turbo-look’ or ‘Supersport’ as it later became known in the UK. Initially, Option M491 was only available on a Coupé and had to be ordered through the "Special Wishes" program, but was later extended to include the Targa and Cabriolet in 1985, before becoming an official model available from dealers in 1986. From 1987 onwards these dramatic versions were officially known as SSE (Supersport Equipment), and the cars in this final three-year run up until 1989 were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 Getrag gearbox and a hydraulic clutch.

        'M491' was not just a sop to the excesses of the 1980s, with flared arches evoking the appearance of some dramatic Porsche models from the past, but was a popular option offering the 'macho' good looks of the Turbo without the mechanical complexities. However, it was not cheap adding over £10,000 to the cost of a standard variant by the end of the model’s life in 1989, possibly explaining the relatively small build numbers.  The SSE spec also included a limited slip differential, the stiffer suspension and superior braking system from the 930 Turbo, a wrap-around deep chin-spoiler, the famous ‘tea-tray’ rear spoiler, and wider Fuchs alloy wheels.  The rarity of Supersport models is undeniable, especially in right-hand drive, but official figures are hard to come by as technically the 'Turbo-look' option was, just that, an option and not a type so records do not exist but a respected source quotes that just 651 M491 cars (including all Coupés, Targas and Cabriolets) were manufactured between 1984 and 1989 with only 75 of those being in C16 UK-spec and half of those were Cabriolets.  According to the 'Turbo-look Register', there are currently 27 UK-owned Supersport Cabs of which only five are finished in black.

        This lovely Supersport Cabriolet is a C16, UK, right-hand drive car supplied through A.F.N Porsche in Guildford and first registered on the 03/03/89. It's finished in black with a white interior and features, as standard, a manual G50 gearbox, Fuchs alloy wheels, electric door mirrors, power steering, air conditioning, CD Player, central locking, electric windows, leather seats, lumbar support, and an alarm. In addition, it was ordered with a number of factory options including heated front sport seats, graduated tinted windscreen, Turbo-look body style (Factory M491), Harmann analogue sound system, Porsche Script door entry guards (black) and a white full-leather interior.

        It has been enjoyed by only three owners, covered just 75,282 miles, has a great service history, and has recently benefited from various OEM replacement parts including new power window switches, brake pads and hoses, new thermostat, heating box and headlight seals. A brand new full exhaust system has been fitted at a cost of £5,000, and the tonneau cover has been replaced as have the door cards and locking wheel nuts.

        The gleaming black coachwork remains in excellent condition as does the crisp black and white interior and the smart alloy wheels and there is plenty of life left in the tyres. The car is accompanied by a large history folder detailing the mileage, previous owners, old MOTs (16), service invoices, a number of dealer booklets, and its original service book. The service record is up to date, most recently in the hands of Porsche specialists, Export 56. It's currently in professional dry storage but has been fastidiously maintained and very lightly used over the last two years. 

        This is simply a lovely and genuine example of one of the most sought-after models from a classic period in the history of the 911 and viewing is highly recommended.

        1967 Maserati Quattroporte 1 4000 Berlina Sportiva Tipo 107

        Lot # 322 (Sale Order: 22 of 22)      

        One of the world's fastest luxury saloons in its day. 

        One of the world's fastest luxury saloons in its day. 

         

        • One of only seven UK right-hand drive examples
        • Five previous keepers (three in the same family)
        • Original driver's handbook, and a copy of workshop parts listing
        • Large history file dating back many years, including tax discs and MOTs
        • Invoices totalling £40,000 expenditure in the last nine years with marque specialists

        The Quattroporte joined the Maserati stable in October-November 1963 when it was launched at the Turin Motor Show, where a pre-production prototype shared pride of place with a Mistral Coupe on the extravagant Maserati stand. Styled by Frua, the V8-powered Quattroporte was a landmark model for Maserati, being the Modena firm's first four-door saloon and its first model to utilise unitary construction. The car was powered by a downsized - to 4.2 litres - version of the 5000 GT's four-cam V8 producing 260bhp and mated to either a five-speed ZF manual transmission or a three-speed Borg-Warner automatic on request. It featured independent front suspension and a De Dion rear axle, though the latter was replaced by a conventional elliptically sprung live axle in 1967. Car & Driver magazine recorded a 0-60mph time of 8.7 seconds and wound their Quattroporte up to 120mph, estimating that there was another 10mph still to come, all of which was some going for a fully-equipped four-seater weighing close to two tons. The Tipo 107 was revised in 1966 adding the twin headlights already used on the U.S. model and the interior was completely redesigned including the dashboard which now had a full-width wood-trimmed fascia. Regular production began in 1964 with the Quattroporte competing head-on with the two other established four-door Grand Tourers, the Facel Vega and the Lagonda Rapide looking for wealthy buyers wishing to traverse Europe at 120mph on the ever-increasing network of new motorways.

        Swift and luxurious, the Quattroporte was necessarily expensive, with ownership confined to a relative handful of wealthy connoisseurs. Sales never reached the anticipated volumes, and by the time production ceased only 679 examples of the Quattroporte Tipo 107 and 107/A had been produced. Of these 679, this is one of only seven right-hand drive Tipo 107 Quattroportes and was first registered new on 11/01/67 to a Dr Ernest Kay of London NW11 finished in Grigio Metallizzato with contrasting Nero Perlato roof, trimmed in Pelle Bianca Leather, and fitted with the 4.1-litre V8 engine and manual transmission. It has been enjoyed by only five previous owners (three of which were from the same family) and has covered a total of 73,900 miles. It would appear to have been well maintained by marque specialist McGrath Maserati and is supplied with a comprehensive history file which contains the current V5c registration document, many other bills for maintenance, tax discs dating back four decades, a CD of restoration work carried out in 2010, and many old MOT certificates corroborating the indicated mileage.
