1951 James Superlux Autocycle

1951 James Superlux Autocycle

Lot # 401 (Sale Order: 1 of 59)

James had begun concentrating on the manufacture of two-stroke-powered lightweights in the 1930s and continued the policy after WW2. Its first post-war models were the ML, a 122cc Villiers-engined machine derived from a successful military design, and an autocycle. Autocycles were immensely popular in the years immediately following WW2, offering the prospect of affordable two-wheeled transport in a period of severe austerity. Like the mopeds of the 1950s and the definitive machine of this type - the Honda 50 - autocycles were aimed at a non-enthusiast mass market, offering simplicity of operation and, often, a degree of weather protection not enjoyed by larger and more powerful machines. A rigid-framed machine fitted with tubular girder forks, the James Superlux autocycle was powered by a 98cc Villiers Junior de Luxe engine enclosed by pressed-steel panels. The model was fitted with the new Villiers 2F unit for 1950 and continued in production in this form until 1954. Up for auction is this very well presented and original 1951 James Superlux Autocycle. The Motorcycle Dating Service have confirmed the Engine number 801/24869 and Frame number M20200S is a 99cc capacity Superlux Autocycle with the correct Villiers 2F engine. The bike is in perfect working order and has been used for several events, including several appearances at Goodwood Revival and is supplied with its current UK V5.

1996 Ducati 916 Senna 1

1996 Ducati 916 Senna 1

Lot # 402 (Sale Order: 2 of 59)

With its 916cc, fuel injected, 4-valves-per-cylinder desmodromic, liquid-cooled, 90° V-twin, Ducati’s 916 was an instant classic as soon as it was shown to the world. Built for 5 years before evolving into the 996, this bike was one of Massimo Tamburini’s crowning achievements. Though it produced less horsepower than the Japanese competition, it was more torquey, and no bike from anywhere could compete on looks. In 1998, the Guggenheim featured an exhibit called “The Art of the Motorcycle” and the 916 was one of the few modern bikes to make the cut. To many enthusiasts around the world, the 916 was not simply the latest 'superbike', but the best there had ever been. Not only did it set new standards of performance, handling, and braking, but also topped the table in style and charisma. Ayrton Senna was a personal friend of the Castiglioni family (partially, no doubt, because he was a repeat high-profile Ducati customer), and had actually personally agreed to the first run of 200 bikes named in his honour before his demise. Profits from these 'Sennas' went to the Senna Foundation, to provide Brazilian kids with free sports facilities, as long as they went to school. The first run arrived in 1995 – Silver with red wheels, with a Strada-spec engine (minus the posh Pankl rods) with an SP chassis (Öhlins shock, cast-iron, fully-floating Brembo discs and braided brake hoses) and 300 were built. Two further runs of Senna 2 and Senna 3s were produced in 1997 and 1998 with all profits, similarly, going to the Senna Foundation.This 916 Senna 1 (73/300) was first registered in the UK on 20th March 1998 and has just one previous registered keeper. Most importantly, the bike has covered an incredible 5 (five) miles from new. It was purchased by our vendor in 2011 and has been used as a display bike during that period. As one would expect, the condition of this 916 Senna is beautiful and reflects the delivery mileage indicated. We welcome pre-sale inspections and can report that the bike starts and runs sweetly. An unrepeatable opportunity to acquire a true collector's item that would look good in any setting and, at any level, is a work of art.

2013 Moto Guzzi 'California Custom' 1400

2013 Moto Guzzi 'California Custom' 1400

Lot # 403 (Sale Order: 3 of 59)

Founded in 1921 in Mandello del Lario, Italy, Moto Guzzi is the oldest European motorcycle manufacturer in continuous production. Success in motorsport both on circuit and road racing has ensured the companies longevity. The manufacturer is also known for their air-cooled 90-degree V-Twin engines mounted longitudinally ensuring the cylinder heads sit prominently on both sides of the frame.The original Moto Guzzi California was released in 1971 and was designed in consultation with the Los Angeles Police Department to replace the previous model. A 'cruiser' style motorcycle, the company have gone on to make many iterations of this bike. In 2013, a new California 1400 Custom was released, fitted with the biggest engine Moto Guzzi have ever produced, utilising ABS, traction control, and even ride-by-wire electronic injection, making it smoother and faster to ride than its predecessors. Stopping power comes from a Brembo setup comprising four-piston callipers up front with a 320mm disc and two-piston callipers at the rear with a 282mm disc. A retro looking cruiser, the bike does have modern looking LED taillights and indicators built into the rear arch. With an impressive 0-60mph time of only 3.7 seconds and 87 bhp, these California 1400 Customs are sure to put a smile on ones face.This particular Moto Guzzi California 1400 Custom was registered to its one and only owner in the UK on 24th May 2013. Finished in devilishly handsome black, the bike was bought by our vendor to go on a European tour with friends. The trip was completed and the bike enjoyed, however, other commitments have taken priority and this California has seen little use since, with only 3,166 miles showing on the odometer. Supplied with a UK V5c and MOT tested until 4th October 2017, this cruiser is ready for further adventures!

1969 Honda Z50A Mini-Trail Monkey Bike 'Sir Stirling Moss OBE & Rob Walker Tribute'

1969 Honda Z50A Mini-Trail Monkey Bike 'Sir Stirling Moss OBE & Rob Walker Tribute'

Lot # 404 (Sale Order: 4 of 59)

It all started back in the early 1960s with Honda’s then-new Suzuka Circuit, which included an amusement park called ‘Motopia’.  The park featured all sorts of motorised vehicle ‘rides’ and one of these featured a tiny prototype motorbike called the Z100, which used the 50cc pushrod single from the Honda Cub, a hardtail frame, and 5-inch wheels. It quickly became the park’s most popular attraction, and because riders looked so 'Simian' while aboard the tiny bikes, the term ‘Monkey Bike’ quickly took hold.The minibike craze began spreading throughout Asia and Europe, with Honda developing a commercially viable take on the Z100, the Z50M.  At this time, in the US, the only minibikes available were often very crude, being mostly lawn mower-engined, which although hugely popular, lacked any real quality and rideability.  Honda, well known in the US by this time, was generating massive sales and reputational momentum with clean-cut marketing and inexpensive, reliable motorcycles that nearly everyone seemed to like, took note of the minibike craze and began piecing together a plan.  Their R&D team wanted something new and fresh, to appeal to the demands of US customers.  The result, with three gears, an automatic clutch, front suspension, rear brakes, larger wheels, knobbly tires, high-mount mudguards, and an adjustable seat, was called the Z50A, or ‘Mini-Trail’.The Mini-Trail astounded the minibike world, Honda dealers couldn’t sell enough of them.  There was huge demand, with both children and adults riding them literally everywhere.  Honda had created an institution!  Honda continued to develop and sell their Z-series of Monkey Bikes models for many more years, being put to good use by owners often as pit bikes or delivery vehicles.  The Monkey Bike philosophy of a real, well-engineered motorbike – but in miniature – still enthrals riders today, both young and old alike.   Here we have a very collectable and rare late 1960s Z50A Mini-Trail (non-battery) model.  It was originally a UK-supplied example, which has recently been fully restored by a Monkey Bike enthusiast.  Unlike any other example out there, this particular bike has been signed by Sir Stirling Moss OBE.  It is ideal for that man-cave or garage as a piece of unique automobilia, or alternatively for using around an estate or race-track.  A special thing in its own right, but having been signed by a legend, it is simply not to be missed.

2000 Bimota SB6-R

2000 Bimota SB6-R

Lot # 406 (Sale Order: 6 of 59)

The Suzuki 1100 engine was one of the classic hooligan powerplants of the early 1990s, but it took an Italian Company called Bimota to realise its true potential as the scourge of all suburban neighbourhoods.With 160mph performance, a short, wheelie-prone chassis and a screaming banshee wail from the under seat exhausts each time the rev needle passed 6,000rpm, the SB6 was perhaps the ultimate cafe racer special of the mid-1990s. A truly exotic, handbuilt, carbon fibre everywhere, 'R' version of the SB6 was also produced for those who demanded the very best, which cost a staggering £17,995 nearly 20 years ago.The “S” of SB6-R tells you that the engine for this bike came from Suzuki. Specifically, it was yanked from the GSXR 1100 of the time. With Bimota-developed camshafts, it produced 156 horsepower and could propel the bike to a top speed of 175 miles per hour. It also came with stereotypical Italian build quality inconsistencies, which were tough to bear on a bike this expensive, however, it must be said that this money did buy you some of the best components available at the time – Paoli suspension, Brembo brakes, Marchesini wheels and more. Still, time heals all wounds, and you can now get a Bimota SB6-R, in excellent condition, for not much more than comparable Japanese bikes of the era. This SB6-R is a late production bike and was first registered on the 1st June 2000. It was purchased by our vendor, the bike’s second registered keeper, on the 10th May 2016 and is now presented to auction with a fresh MOT and in a superb condition totally commensurate with its odometer reading of a shade over 1,700 miles. The bike appears completely standard apart from a Mark Hill Performance exhaust.This is a stunning concoction of a hugely powerful Japanese engine, Italian styling, and sweet high-speed handling and would make an attractive addition to any collection of performance bikes.

1991 Bentley Turbo R

1991 Bentley Turbo R

Lot # 407 (Sale Order: 7 of 59)

Based on the Mulsanne chassis, the Bentley Turbo R was built to be a serious high-performance machine and, like its predecessor, this Bentley had a turbocharged engine, however, it was more highly tuned than the Mulsanne. With Bosch fuel injection increasing torque levels, uprated suspension, anti-roll bars, and superior dampers, the Bentley Turbo was surprisingly nimble for a car of its size and fitted with a 6750cc V8 capable of 135mph it was a real performer in a straight line too. Rave reviews in the press helped dealers move the Turbo R in relatively substantial numbers - one report by Motor Trend described it as "The first Bentley in decades deserving of that famous name".The stylish lines of these nineties Bentleys look best in darker colours, and the Beluga Black paintwork with twin Cardinal Red 'coach-lines' gives this substantial saloon a wonderful low and sleek look. As is traditional with a car which would have cost £110,000 new, the interior is the epitome of class. Lush red-piped, black leather, deep carpets and superb veneers suggest the 27,000 miles on the clock are genuine. However, the mileage can not be substantiated.  This stunning Bentley was bought in January 2016 by our vendor from a University Professor who took it to many events and had obviously taken great care of it. This car has a current MoT until March 2018 and comes with some service history, original tool kit and jack. In addition, when photographed it ran without fault and is generally presented in lovely condition. The paintwork retains a good shine and the interior is in excellent condition. The engine bay looks very clean and we welcome pre-sale inspections on this gentleman's express.A very classy and useable appreciating classic, this Turbo R is offered without reserve, will be driven to the auction, and you might just enjoy driving it home!!

1991 Porsche 944 Turbo Cabriolet

1991 Porsche 944 Turbo Cabriolet

Lot # 408 (Sale Order: 8 of 59)

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. These carry eccentric weights which produce inertial forces that balance out the unbalanced secondary forces, all a bit technical but 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 the forced induction boosted the 2.5-litre engine by a healthy 60bhp, necessitating an upgraded clutch and gearbox. The chassis was further developed and thicker anti-roll bars and four-pot brake callipers were fitted to deal with the significantly increased performance. Externally, a smoother nose panel and a larger rear spoiler distinguished it from its lesser siblings. In February 1991, (the final year of 944 production), Porsche released the 944 Turbo Cabriolet which combined the Turbo S' 250bhp engine with the strengthened cabriolet body built by the ASC-American Sunroof Company at Weinsberg.  Compared to the Coupé model, the Cabriolet's windscreen is lowered about 6cm and raked back to reduce the wind noise when the top is down.  Porsche initially announced that 600 would be made, but ultimately 625 were built, with just 100 examples produced in right-hand drive for the UK, Japanese, Australian and South African markets.  This then is a very rare and capable motor car, with a 0-62 mph time of under 6 seconds, and was produced for just one year, with only 32 examples believed to still reside in the UK.Presented here is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive, 944 Turbo Cabriolet supplied new by Porsche Centre-Strattons of Wilmslow Ltd. on the 1st August 1992.  Finished in the classic Porsche colour of Guards Red (LM3A) with a Classic Grey (TT) leather interior and grey carpets throughout, this car is in superb condition and has today covered just 47,340 miles. It was supplied with options 220: a limited slip differential with 40% lockup with reinforced inner plates and molybdenum coated differential shafts (as standard), 233: tyre specification, 573: air-conditioning, 605: headlight aim control and 946: leather/ leatherette seats.It was serviced by Porsche Centres (Strattons, Chariots, AFN) from 2,789 miles to 19,968 miles, and latterly by marque specialists. It comes with an original and fully stamped-up Porsche Service Book plus numerous invoices for maintenance plus MoT Certificates, which help corroborate the indicated mileage.  Now being sold from part of an enthusiast’s collection, this car has recently benefited from a full service (including cam-belt) in 2016.This fabulous, open-top, Porsche has obviously been well-maintained and presents, both mechanically and cosmetically, really well.  Small but important details like factory stickers still in situ, two sets of keys and a complete book-pack help support its careful ownership. This is a simply a lovely example of one of the rarest and most sought-after Porsches from the 1990s. The 944, the 968 and even the 928 are seeing their values rise in the wake of the '911 explosion' and front-engined Porsches are having the Renaissance they richly deserve. This great example, whilst being competitively guided, opens the door into a very exclusive club.

2012 McLaren MP4-12C

2012 McLaren MP4-12C

Lot # 409 (Sale Order: 9 of 59)

The MP4-12C is McLaren's first production car since the legendary McLaren F1. Unlike the F1, the MP4-12C is powered by a 3.8-litre V8, twin-turbo engine that can propel the car from 0 to 124 mph in an incredible 8.9 seconds. Designed by Frank Stephenson, who also styled the Ferrari F430 and the new Mini, the MP4-12C was launched in 2011 and is built using a great deal of technology from McLaren's Formula One program. For example, a Formula One style carbon tub, known as a 'carbon monocell', forms the basis of the car's chassis and weighs only 80 kg. In addition, the engine is mated to a seven-speed automatic dual-clutch gearbox allowing for seamless gear changes. Even the name 'MP4-12C' is an homage to McLaren's Formula One history, as every chassis since 1981 has been labeled MP4. Reviews of the model confirmed that McLaren had achieved what they set out to do with their new car. Evo Magazine stated: "It's faster than a Ferrari 458 Italia, has more useable performance, rides better, has more mechanical grip and is much, much more useable."   This particular McLaren MP4-12C was ordered new by its one and only owner on 31st July 2012 through McLaren London. Finished in Azure Blue with a full red leather interior, additional options include; parking sensors front and rear, branded floor mats, Meridian sound system, Iris upgrade with Sat Nav, McLaren vehicle tracking and electric and heated memory seats. The car has been back to McLaren for its second and third-year full services and will go back there prior to the sale for another service. Now showing just 22,880 miles from new, this one owner car is striking in its colour combination and represents an opportunity to own one of the world's most competent and seamless supercars.

1991 Vauxhall Lotus Carlton. 4,500 miles from new

1991 Vauxhall Lotus Carlton. 4,500 miles from new

Lot # 410 (Sale Order: 10 of 59)

The Lotus Carlton is a legend and the kind of car that comes along once in a generation.  At a time when really fast four-door saloons were the preserve of BMW and Mercedes, this Vauxhall (Opel) derived super saloon arrived on the scene demolishing the opposition. Oddly, it wasn't its huge performance or masculine good looks that created the most fuss but the fact that the Daily Mail was so outraged by its stated top speed of 176mph, that it declared it too fast for British roads. Of course, the Lotus Carlton - or Type 104 to Lotus aficionados - was nothing of the sort, and although it shared its major components with a mainstream executive car, its level of development across every aspect of automotive dynamics had resulted in a truly special performance car.It was powered by a twin-turbo version of the venerable straight-six used in the Senator, which developed a remarkable 377bhp. To achieve that figure, Lotus had put a lot of work into the 3.6-litre power unit, uprating and strengthening the bottom end, porting the 24-valve cylinder head (from the Carlton GSI), and fitting forged 'slipper pistons' made by Mahle atop new Lotus-designed connecting rods tied to a counterweighted, forged steel crankshaft. The gearbox was the same six-speeder used in the Corvette ZR-1, the only transmission in GM's parts bin, capable of handling the car's monster torque.  AP Group-C derived brakes - four-pot calipers with 330mm ventilated discs at the front and two-pot at the rear – sat behind specially developed Goodyear tyres. Performance was brisk, to say the least. 0-60mph came up in 5.0 seconds, 0-100 was dispatched in 11.1 seconds, and in 1992 Autocar Magazine recorded a time of 17.0 seconds for their 0-100-0 challenge, 2nd best behind an F40, however, it's the car's maximum speed of 176mph that will always be quoted by its fans. Based on a civilised modern saloon car, the Lotus Carlton was tractable, light and well-mannered in town traffic, however, whilst those 377 horses were quite comfortable in the Dressage Ring, given an open gate, they were quickly off to the Cross Country Course.Supplied new by Moorland Motors of Blackpool in August 1991 and finished in the obligatory Imperial Green, this immaculate Lotus Carlton is car Number 28 out of a limited production of 284 UK, right-hand drive models and has covered a warranted 4,500 miles from new.After a period in dry storage, this special and possibly unique car has been carefully recommissioned to prepare it for sale. All the fluids including gearbox, coolant, power steering etc. have been replaced and an invoice for this work totalling £1,900 is in the car's history file. We would recommend that the original tyres, although in excellent condition, are replaced before this ballistic Carlton is fully extendedAlongside the normal documentation, it comes with its original book pack and the numbered Lotus Carlton book that was presented to each owner at the time of sale. The condition of this lovely car is commensurate with its 4,500 miles and can be gleaned from a close inspection of the accompanying photographs.The product of the finest motorsport brains of the decade, these cars are still seriously quick in modern terms, and the opportunity to acquire, what may be the lowest mileage example left, is not to be missed.

1997 Lotus Elise S1

1997 Lotus Elise S1

Lot # 411 (Sale Order: 11 of 59)

Purity is a fragile and vulnerable thing and in August 1996, the revolutionary new Lotus Elise seemed to ooze purity from every extruded anodised aluminium and epoxy resin crevice, with nothing superfluous subtracting from the essence of this truly minimalist, focused little sports car. Although 'beautiful to behold' it certainly was, the time-honoured relationship between 'form and function' was clearly evident in the way it went and handled with its lightweight chassis-tub at 731kg failing to daunt the enthusiasm of the mid-mounted, 1.8-litre K-series engine, and its 118bhp was enough for a 0-60mph time in the low sixes allied to decent pull in the higher ratios. Clothed in two-piece 'clamshell' fibreglass bodywork, the featherweight two-door also featured all round double-wishbone independent coil-over suspension, rack and pinion steering, four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, and a five-speed gearbox. Designer Julian Thomson and engineer Richard Rackham were keen to create a car with something of a motorcycle’s feel, and they undoubtedly succeeded, as is evident as much as in the aluminium-and-rubber interior and neat little Stack instrument panel, as in the car's dynamic intimacy with the road, the wind, and the weather. The Elise was a reaction to the corpulent world of leather, luxury, and levers becoming increasingly evident in Lotus road cars, and was an attempt to recreate Colin Chapman’s early principles before he abandoned them in a move upmarket. The early cars were followed in 2002 by the Series 2 and any number of special models with various engine options and greater levels of creature comfort and they're all great, but the simpler, more demure Series 1 still defines the breed. The 1997 Lotus Elise S1 'lightweight' offered here was supplied new by Bell & Colvill to a prominent member of the BRDC who was a well known racing driver in the 1960s. It has covered a mere 1,633 miles from new and is one of the very early lightweight series cars which featured composite brake discs and an aluminium engine cover in the quest for the lowest possible kerb weight. This little Lotus presents superbly in 'Racing Green Metallic' with Magnolia hide and is fitted with a 'Momo' steering wheel, built in driving lights, and Perspex headlamp covers. The car has recently been serviced, which included changing all fluids and replacing the cambelt and will have a fresh MOT at the time of the sale.This sparkling Elise is in superb condition as can be seen in the accompanying photographs. Absolutely delightful.

1974 Triumph TR6

1974 Triumph TR6

Lot # 412 (Sale Order: 12 of 59)

The Triumph TR6 was the best-selling Triumph in history when production ended in 1976, but was later surpassed by the TR7. More than 94,000 TR6s were built, ninety per cent of them to US specification. The TR6 was a refined sports car and featured pile carpets on the floors and boot, plush-looking bucket seats, a lovely wooden dashboard and a full complement of instrumentation. In the US, it featured the six-cylinder engine that was carried over from the TR250, while the UK version had a more powerful fuel-injected engine from the TR5 with Lucas mechanical fuel injection system. It traces its lineage back to the four-cylinder Triumphs: TR4, TR4A, TR3/TR3A and TR2. This stylish six-cylinder sports car is regarded by some as the last true Triumph.This TR6 is an original UK right-hand drive example that has recently been treated to a photographic body-off restoration. The original fuel injection system has been replaced in favour of three Weber 45 DCOE side-draft carburettors and the 2.5 litre straight-six has a ‘sprint' cam, giving a very useful increase in power. Both torquey and eager to rev, with an addictive roar from the intake trumpets and the stainless exhaust system, it's a rewarding and entertaining drive.A precise four-speed gearbox with switched overdrive on third and fourth is great for either blasting around B-roads or high-speed cruising. The steering is tight and direct - there is great feedback through the wheel, not least due to rack mount upgrades. Pirelli tyres give excellent levels of traction and cornering, and the brakes bring everything solidly to a stop without drama.It's obvious when you inspect the underside of this TR that it has been well looked-after; there are no signs of repairs and no cover-ups with fresh underseal. All suspension components have been powder-coated or painted as part of the rebuild and attention to detail is very high. All inspections are welcome.This TR6 is an opportunity to own a fully-prepared, fast and beautifully restored example of an original UK TR6. We encourage pre-sale inspections and urge prospective bidders to come and have a drive prior to the auction.

1985 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Cabriolet

1985 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Cabriolet

Lot # 413 (Sale Order: 13 of 59)

The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963. These final cars (before being replaced by the more complicated 964) were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design. Launched in 1984, and reviving the ‘Carrera' name for the first time since 1977, these were the ultimate 1980's sports cars.The all-alloy, flat-6 engine, which had been fuel injected since 1971, received a final stretch to 3,164cc, giving a torque-rich 231bhp - enough to propel the lithe and slippery model to over 150 mph, with 0-60 mph coming up in 5.6 seconds.   All 3.2 Carreras feature galvanised bodies, which together with Porsche's legendary build quality, ensure that these classics are long lasting.The car presented here is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive 1985 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Cabriolet finished in the classic colour combination of Guards Red with a Black interior.  This genuine example has covered just 80,686 miles which is supported by MOT certificates back to 1989, a Service Book showing 20 stamps and a large file of service and maintenance invoices. The car comes from long-term ownership, having been with its last keeper from 2005 to 2016.  During this custodianship, the car was put into storage for a period from 2012, with MOT certificates indicating that from the 11th April 2012 until the current MOT, the car has covered just 123 miles.In March 2016, it was given a fully comprehensive service/re-commissioning with many tired or perishable parts replaced.  This car has obviously been well-maintained and presents, both mechanically and cosmetically, in very good condition.  Small details like factory stickers still in place and the Porsche tool roll still in its corner help support this car’s dutiful ownership history. A true landmark in the 911 timeline, the first of the truly usable and durable 911s that, as the years and miles go by, will just keep going and going and probably just get even better looking.  This is a simply a lovely genuine example of one of the most popular and sought-after Porsche models.

1964 Triumph TR4

1964 Triumph TR4

Lot # 414 (Sale Order: 14 of 59)

The Triumph TR4 was introduced in 1961 to follow its very successful predecessors, the TR2 and TR3. Code named 'Zest' during development, the body was given a more modern and updated appearance by Michelotti but its drivetrain and chassis remained the same using the well proven four-cylinder pushrod unit, albeit with an increased capacity to 2138cc. Handling was improved by a three-inch wider track and the steering was also updated to a more modern and precise rack and pinion system. Internally, the car gained wind-up windows and the new angular rear end allowed for a boot with a very reasonable luggage capacity for a sports car. Production was between 1961 and 1965 and over the years this model has become one of Triumph's most popular sports cars.This UK-supplied TR4 is finished in the stunning colour combination of Midnight Blue with an Oxblood Red interior. Fresh from a recent full restoration, the car is ready for a top-down blast around the UK in perfect sixties style. A new hood, powder coated wire wheels, and brilliant chrome-work complete this fabulous looking classic.The driving experience is said to be a great combination of Triumph's classic 4-pot engine, precise gear changes, communicative steering, and nimble handling, and the overdrive makes for very relaxed cruising. An ideal summer classic at a most affordable level, we welcome pre-sale inspections on this TR4 and prospective bidders should contact the office for further details.

1962 Lotus Elite S2 Type 14

1962 Lotus Elite S2 Type 14

Lot # 415 (Sale Order: 15 of 59)

The Lotus Elite, when first launched in 1958, put Colin Chapman and Lotus cars very firmly on the map. It utilised a 'monocoque construction' which meant there was no separate chassis and the body was 'load bearing', and whilst this was becoming accepted practice, the Elite was the first time it had been attempted in glass-fibre. When combined with independent sporty suspension, a ZF gearbox, disc brakes, a Coventry Climax all aluminium engine, and a very low drag coefficient of just 0.29 - it made for a great drivers car. So much so, that by production end in 1963 over one thousand had been produced and Lotus was now a credible British sports car manufacturer.This particular car became the property of Dick Crosthwaite (he of the famous 'Crosthwaite and Gardener' engineering company) as he was originally searching for an inlet manifold for a Coventry Climax engine and the one he eventually found was still attached to this car, 413 RDT! He then started to accumulate other parts to add to his store in the hope of fully restoring the little Lotus over time. These included a new ZF gearbox, Borrani wire wheels, and various new/old stock original components.However Dick's busy and successful business life prevented him from making much progress, so he eventually parted with the car in 2009 when our vendor commenced a thorough and complete total rebuild. He took enormous trouble to recreate the car authentically but with period upgrades and also to the highest of standards - sourcing all parts carefully and sparing no expense. The car now presents superbly with excellent shut lines, the paint shines deeply (having been soda blasted back to the original gel coat before painting), the stainless steel trim shines brightly, and the freshly trimmed interior in Air Force Blue leather and Cornflower Blue carpets looks superb.Under the bonnet sits the 1500cc "FWB" engine with a steel crankshaft, Arrow Rods and Arias pistons with a 5-bearing cam and adjustable timing wheel mated to a new ZF 4-speed gearbox, an aluminium radiator with an effective fan, a long-range aluminium fuel tank and braided brake and fuel lines finish off the stunning rebuild. The monocoque is original - not one of the later reproduced versions, as is the gearbox. The engine is also an original road engine, not a converted pump engine. Since completion the car has covered just 879 miles, including a 300 mile very recent round trip to Castle Combe to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Elite. This is now a great opportunity to buy a real "racing car for the road", just as Colin Chapman always intended.

1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster

1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster

Lot # 416 (Sale Order: 16 of 59)

Some cars need no introduction and the Jaguar E-Type is no exception. The Series II Jaguar E-Types that were produced from 1969 to 1971 can be identified by their open headlights, no longer with glass covers, a wrap-around rear bumper with the tail lights now underneath, and the front indicators were larger and similarly repositioned below the slightly heavier front bumpers. The cooling was much improved helped by the enlarged 'mouth'. Series II cars also feature twin electric fans and uprated brakes. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smoothly polished cam covers to a ribbed appearance and for US-spec cars, twin Stromberg carburettors were used. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned, with flick switches being substituted by rocker switches to meet U.S regulations.This particular car has been fully maintained for its whole life and the car's history file documents all the relevant details including its earlier custodians. It appears to have been extensively restored by Barretts Jaguar of Kent in 1987 and there is a photographic record in the file. Our vendor was aided in his search for the best SeriesII he could find by Ken Bell. ex-Coombes Jaguar, a respected authority on all things Jaguar. The odometer currently indicates just over 95,000 miles and this, matching numbers, Series II looks superb finished in Signal Red with a Black interior. The wire wheel spokes have been upgraded to stainless steel and the cleverly modified stereo system incorporates Satellite Navigation, however, the car is essentially honest and still guided by its original steering wheel, a rare find these days.BYF 100H is a fairly high-profile E-Type and has featured at many events, including being one of the cars selected to appear in the Guinness World Record Display collection of E-Types at Regent Street Motor Show in 2011 to celebrate fifty years since the E-Type was launched. It was also seen at the St.James Concours d'Elegance in 2013 and at Hampton Court in 2014. Additionally, this car was chosen by Boris Johnson, when he was Mayor of London, to take part in the convoy celebrating the opening of the Piccadilly and St. James two-way system, and appeared on BBC and ITV looking splendid.Freshly MoT'd and ready for inspection, there can't be a more quintessentially British classic than a bright red E-Type.  .

1987 Ford Capri 280 Brooklands

1987 Ford Capri 280 Brooklands

Lot # 417 (Sale Order: 17 of 59)

The best Capri 'Brooklands' we have ever seen! This car, affectionately known as Oscar, was bought by its current owner over 8 years ago on 30th March 2009 as an immaculate Capri 280 "Brooklands" with a genuine mileage of 12,704,(now showing 14,680). It has every MoT and tax disc ever issued for the car and a full dealer service history, including an immaculately presented and extremely comprehensive A4 binder full of further history and receipts. This Capri has had just three previous keepers from new.According to our vendor, he bought the car "in truly exceptional condition with no corrosion or damage". It had never been repaired or painted, which was later verified by marque specialists 'Restore-A-Ford'.Since that purchase, the entire car has been professionally and fully re-finished (not restored) by the leading Capri experts, Restore-A-Ford. The subject of a money-no-object refinish designed to produce a car that was correct in every detail and, possibly, even better than when it left the factory. This whole process, (including the strip down showing the car to have no corrosion or repair damage) is comprehensively documented with hundreds of full-colour photographs.The entire underside of the car, including the wheel houses, was taken back, by hand, to bare metal and then zinc etch-primed, and stone chip coated, before being painted in ICI two-pack clear overbase. All underside components were refinished too in the correct finish and colours, and the dampers and engine were paint matched to the original finishes. All the fixings, nuts and bolts were stripped and re-zinced with the correct 'gold passivate' factory finish, only again, to a much higher standard than the originals.New brake drums, cylinders, shoes and fitting kit were used, whilst the original calipers were fully stripped and rebuilt with stainless pistons and fresh, factory-correct, zinc coating on the calliper bodies. New EBC dustless brake pads were used along with new discs and fitting kit. These were connected to stainless Goodridge flexible brake hoses that are black sheathed to look factory original with the whole brake system running EBC silicone brake fluid. This perfect base was further complimented by every rubber bush on the car being replaced in favour of Superflex poly replacements.A brand new, period correct stainless steel Janspeed exhaust system was fitted and bespoke stainless link pipes were made in order that the factory manifolds could be retained. Those manifolds were then plasma-ceramic coated. Further to that, rather than re-use the mild steel manifold studs, an engineering company was commissioned to make a full set of studs in marine-grade stainless steel and brass nuts to suit. The engine starts and runs beautifully and uses a full set of silicone hoses that mimic the originals (included) while the system also benefits from waterless coolant, which along with the silicone brake fluid are lifetime fluids.The quality of the paint finish is immediately obvious and is almost flawless, topped off with a perfectly applied, Ford authorised, stripe kit. New, old stock, mud flaps and brackets were sourced and stainless 'pucs'" were commissioned by the owner to fit between the arch and the bracket to protect the paint. The bumpers were repainted in the correct satin black with all fixings re-finished as per the rest of the car.Everything on the car has been prepared to the highest standards and to original colour and specifications. Everything mentioned above is backed by invoices in a very impressive history folder. The car comes with all the original handbooks and plastic sleeve, as well as genuine main and spare Ford keys including the fully functional torch key. If, like the current owner, you want the ultimate Mk3 Capri, correct in every aspect but hand built and finished to an exceptional standard, E366 OFD really is the only option.More pictures can be found here showing the refinishing process from strip-down through to Concours re-fit:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ejm1ryzdjzgy483/AAAkysbrvetje6duhEJtHig2a?dl=0

1979 Porsche 911 SC

1979 Porsche 911 SC

Lot # 418 (Sale Order: 18 of 59)

In 1978 Porsche introduced their latest version of their 911 called the '911SC'. It featured a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. Originally, power output was 180bhp, later 188bhp and then in 1981, it was increased to 204bhp.This UK-supplied 911 SC is finished in an appropriate 70's colour combination of Gold with a matching Tan interior with groovy ‘Pasha' covered sports seats.

1966 Mercedes-Benz 250SE Coupé

1966 Mercedes-Benz 250SE Coupé

Lot # 419 (Sale Order: 19 of 59)

The Mercedes-Benz 220SE was superseded in early autumn 1965 by the 250SE, powered by the new 2.5-litre M129 engine. This bigger and more powerful unit had an output of 150hp at 5500 rpm giving the new model a significant improvement in acceleration and top speed. The car’s external appearance was little changed with only the new 14inch rims and new hubcaps being visible. However, there were a number of improvements over the 220 including larger disc brakes and a redesigned rear axle.A mere 5,259 examples of the 250SE Coupé were built before the introduction of the replacement 280SE in late 1967. These elegant German-engineered, pillarless coupés remain very good looking cars are highly sought after for their timeless style and driving pleasure.This, right-hand drive, 250 SE Coupé has covered just over 99,000 miles and is fitted with power steering and a column shift for the automatic gearbox. This car appears to have been subject to a restoration at some point in its life with many new mechanical parts fitted at the time including shock absorbers, fuel pump, brake reservoir, coils, distributor cap etc. and the vendor informs us that electronic ignition is fitted. He also explained that the seats and carpets have been re-trimmed and the car has been repainted at some point, we understand in its original colour of Dunkelblau (332). In a market where 280SEs are now commanding premium prices, this elegant 250 SE, at this sensible guide, should not be overlooked.

1964 Mercedes-Benz 230SL 'Pagoda'

1964 Mercedes-Benz 230SL 'Pagoda'

Lot # 420 (Sale Order: 20 of 59)

Proudly unveiled to an appreciative audience at the Geneva Motor Show of 1963, the Paul Bracq designed, second generation SL began with the 230. Its wonderfully crisp styling clothed a monocoque chassis equipped with all-round independent suspension, power assisted disc/drum brakes, recirculating ball steering, and a 2306cc straight-six engine of 150bhp and 145 lb-ft of torque mated to either a four-speed manual or an automatic transmission. Remaining in production until 1971, the W113 Class, frequently referred to as the 'Pagoda', eventually spanned three engine sizes. Of the 48,912 W113 Series cars made between 1963 and 1971, 19,831 were 230SLsDFH 125B was purchased in 2015 from a private collection within an estate as the owner had sadly passed away. He had purchased the car in 1988 and duly set about a  restoration. The vehicle was originally registered in his companies' name and at some point was transferred to his own name so, although it has had four keepers 'on paper', two of them were the same. The car appears to have been truly cherished throughout this 27 year period. The odometer was reset at the time of the restoration so we obviously cannot warrant the car's indicated mileage today. Approximately 8 years ago it was taken off the road, and since 2015 a sympathetic partial restoration has been carried out. Our vendor took the whole vehicle apart and either renewed, where required, or cleaned and repaired all else.The engine was taken out and rebuilt and a new clutch fitted. New bulkhead covers and engine undertray have been fitted, and the engine and ancillaries have been nicely detailed, so the engine bay is very impressive indeed. The car was fully serviced at this point.The bodywork was taken back to a bare shell with all the glass out and has been professionally repainted in a distinctive Sea Green. No expense appears to have been spared on the interior and the new trim looks superb. The steering wheel has been professionally restored, as has all the chrome. The hood is in Beige and is in lovely condition, and the hardtop is in Gloss Black, and again has been restored. Hundreds of hours and around £35,000 have been invested to return this Pagoda to top form. All the qualities that made the Pagoda SLs so desirable in their heyday remain today - chic styling, Teutonic build quality, and great driving 'feel'. This little green 'Pagoda' is very appealing and the world's enthusiasm for these charismatic, sixties' Mercedes sports cars, shows little sign of abating.

1989 Safir GT40 Mark V Continuation

1989 Safir GT40 Mark V Continuation

Lot # 421 (Sale Order: 21 of 59)

In the aftermath of the Ford GT40's legendary success at Le Mans and worldwide, and Ford's self-indulgent glossy advertising campaign marketing the handful of 40"-high road cars that they had built to satisfy the requirements of the rule-makers in international motorsport, it's no surprise that the GT40 quickly donned the mantle of one of the world's greatest ever classic sports cars. Then, as now, there was a desire amongst rising generations to own a GT40 (or something that looked just like it), leading to an increased demand for unmolested originals and the start of a replica-building industry that continues to this day.One enthusiast on the lookout for the genuine article at that time was Peter Thorp of Safir Engineering, whose frustration at not being able to find one (original race cars had disappeared into private collections and owners of the road cars were loathed to part with them) led him to a meeting with John Willment. Willment retained a large stock of GT40 spares, tools, jigs and original plans, while Thorp's company, Safir, were experienced constructors of Formula Three single-seaters. The discussions of two much motivated 'petrolheads could have only one outcome, resources would be pooled and production re-started."Negotiations with Ford in Dearborn led to an agreement that further examples could be built, with Safir continuing the run of chassis numbers from the point of completion, but allowing for a further three 'original' chassis to be completed and registered, since Willment had always intended to, one day, finalise the GT40 build programme by finally constructing the three chassis and boxes of parts he still held in storage. As the final chassis had been 'GTP/1086', he retained '1087', '1088' and '1089'. The first Safir chassis would, therefore, be '1090'." - Trevor Legate, Ford GT40, Production & Racing History. 'Mark V' was chosen to designate the mildly updated model, the monocoque chassis of which was redesigned to enable fabricated construction (the originals had used pressed panels). Modern technology in the form of zinc-chromate corrosion proofing ensured a longer life than the original design had enjoyed and a superior and less leak-prone fuel tank was adopted. Tennant Panels supplied the roof structure, the rest of the chassis being completed by Safir with the lightweight body panels fitted. Ex-JW Engineering employees were used wherever possible.The first Safir GT40 was completed in 1980, with a further 39 examples following over the course of the next 15 years, five of which were completed to 7-litre 'Mark II' specification. Cars could be supplied engine-less or with, usually, a 5.3-litre Ford V8 installed. Maximum power depended largely on the choice of induction - Holley or Weber - outputs ranging from 400 to 460bhp. Although Safir received no financial assistance from Ford, the latter sanctioned, and generally approved of, the Mark V project and assisted with obtaining certification for road use. Between them, JW Engineering, Safir and Ford agreed that these 'continuation' cars would be called 'GT40 Mark V Powered by Ford', thus minimising Ford Motor Company's potential liability. Safir later obtained the 'GT40' trademark.This, very special right-hand drive, GT40 Mark V has covered just over 7,800 miles since leaving the Safir workshop in 1989. Two owners have enjoyed the car and the second (and current owner) has owned it since 1995  but has now reached the age of 70 and the time has, therefore, come to sell his much-loved possession. Whilst in conversations with Peter Thorpe about the car in 1995, our vendor made the valid point that the cockpit could get very hot in its current format. Peter Thorpe therefore designed and made new doors for our vendor with removable roof panels which helped the heat issues, ensured the driver could enjoy the impressive sound of the potent Mathwall 5.3 V8 along with offering more space for the taller driver. The original doors are included as part of the sale.Serviced and MOT'd every year since 1997 (with additional service records prior to this period), there is a comprehensive history file with the car detailing all the work carried out over the years, and corroborating the 7,800 miles indicated. There is also another file detailing more of the history of these rare cars, with original sales brochures and magazine articles, along with correspondence between the two owners and interested parties in the car over the years. Reading these interesting files really gives you the impression that this car has enjoyed all the love and attention it deserves and the condition of the car certainly backs this up. This is an honest car, presented in original condition, the red paintwork gleams, and the looks are a joy to behold, certainly iconic, and in some people's eyes, a candidate for the Eighth Wonder of the World Coming to auction with a fresh service and MOT, carried out at 'SVP Motorsport' in May of this year, this

1994 Aston Martin Virage

1994 Aston Martin Virage

Lot # 422 (Sale Order: 22 of 59)

The Virage was a large, heavy car in spite of its all-aluminium body, but with a reworked version of Tadek Marek's legendary quad-cam 5.3-litre V8, now with a 32-valve head designed by Callaway Engineering of Connecticut, hydraulic tappets and Weber-Marelli fuel injection, it produced 364 lb·ft torque and 330bhp, which was enough to elevate its performance to near supercar levels. The five-speed ZF manual was only fitted to about 40% of Virage, with the car’s driving attributes lending themselves more to the popular automatic option of Chrysler's three-speed Torqueflite transmission. For 1993, the three-speed was replaced by a four-speed automatic unit."Acceleration just never seems to run out", claimed Sports Car International on a first test. They also praised the "eager and quicker revving" nature of the engine and were generally mightily impressed with the whole package: "The new car outperforms the old in every respect. It's quicker, sharper handling, more refined and has an astonishingly good ride. It's better made, too. The factory's craftsmanship is legendary, but now it is allied to 1990s standards of quality and reliability’’.  Costing £135,000 at launch, by the end of the 2000 model year, just 1,050 Virage related models were produced in total, quite a low production number when compared to some of its predecessors.The car presented here is a 1994 Virage Automatic which is being sold from a small private collection of choice classics. It looks fabulous in Middlesex Green and the contrasting green-piped, tan leather interior is well-preserved. It was supplied new by the JCT600 Group on the 21st February 1994 and was maintained by the supplying dealer up until 10,880 miles. Since then, it has been serviced by Aston Martin main-dealers (Stratstone AM of Wilmslow, Lancaster AM of Seven Oaks, Stratton AM of Norwich) and latterly marque specialists, up until 41,328 miles. In October 2010 it was acquired by a privately-owned classic car museum, hence the relatively low mileage and enviable condition.Subsequently, the car was fully re-commissioned and has since been well-maintained by our enthusiastic vendor. It has benefitted from some recent expenditure, including a mileage-appropriate service with the refurbishment of its fuel injectors and set-up, four new Avon Turbo-Speed tyres, a new steering rack, and a repair to its Vehicle Information Centre (VIC unit), which cost £2,500 alone.The car is accompanied by its full Aston Martin book-pack and numerous invoices for maintenance. Now with some 45,000 miles on the clock, it's said to drive beautifully and has an MoT until July 2018. Attractively guided today, this lovely Aston offers affordable ownership of a classic 90's British muscle car.

1972 Range Rover (Suffix A)

1972 Range Rover (Suffix A)

Lot # 423 (Sale Order: 23 of 59)

The original Spencer King designed Range Rover was one of the British Motor Industry's proudest success stories. When it went out of production at the end of 1996, it still looked as fresh and forward-thinking as it did back in 1970 when one was exhibited in the Louvre as an example of modern sculpture.TJT 385L is a late Suffix 'A'  Range Rover, first registered on 3rd October 1972 and purchased by Mr Walter Welch from his local Land Rover dealer Tilley's of Weymouth, Dorset, on 4th October 1972. In approximately 1975, the car passed to its second owner, Mr Stanley Wyn Jones of Rhyl, North Wales. It was subsequently purchased by Mrs Phyllis Clayton of Hereford in February 1994 who kept the car for nearly 20 years until October 2013.Specified from the factory in Sahara Dust with a number of factory fitted options including the Fairey overdrive, rear wash-wipe system and an oil pressure gauge. Only a clock was standard on Suffix 'A' cars, the other three round dash apertures having blanks fitted unless additional gauges such as oil pressure, oil temperature, ammeter were ordered. The only variations from factory specification are a glass pop-up style sunroof and a Kenlowe electric fan.When our vendor purchased TJT 385L from us in 2014, he had been looking for a very sound base car to restore and this car fitted the bill perfectly. He commissioned Richard Hodson of RH Classics of Melton Mowbray to perform a body-off restoration, and return the RR to its best with particular attention to the brakes, suspension and engine ancillaries. Upon reassembly, the windows were resealed with new rubbers, time-consuming and expensive but a good indication of the quality of the restoration. The cost of the car's renovation was in the region of £20,000 and it really does present well today.Offered to auction with an MOT until January 2018, its original 3.5-litre V8 engine, no. 35508171B. and a history file that includes the original “Passport to Service”, bills from the 1970s, and receipted invoices. The odometer shows some 92,000 miles, which is largely irrelevant in a car so well restored. To conclude this Suffix 'A' would be at home in any serious car collection with the benefit of being an excellent daily driver.

2006 Ferrari F430 F1

2006 Ferrari F430 F1

Lot # 424 (Sale Order: 24 of 59)

Manufactured from 2004 until 2009, the Ferrari F430 was the successor to the enormously successful 360M. According to its creators, the F430 was at least 70 % new compared with the 360. It had a new engine, a new F1 gearbox, a new diff and a brand-new chassis, and although the styling is obviously reminiscent of the 360M's, in reality, it's pretty much a ground-up design. Only the bonnet, doors, and roof were carried over; the rest, even the door mirrors, were all new and largely the work of Pininfarina, overseen by Ferrari's design chief Frank Stephenson.The F430's complex variable-valve-timing system is also lifted straight from the Enzo's V12, and as ever there is dry-sump lubrication, a very high compression ratio (11.3:1), a variable airflow plenum chamber. and an enormous electronic brain making the decisions in the form of not one, but two, Bosch Motronic ME7 ECUs. At 483bhp it has a significant 21 % more power than the 360.
