Charity Lot 1972 Saab 96 V/4

Charity Lot 1972 Saab 96 V/4

Lot # 701 (Sale Order: 1 of 59)

Saab launched the 96 model using their own rally proven two-stroke engine before entering into an agreement to buy Ford's compact V4 engine and introducing their first four-stroke car, the 96 V4, in late 1966. It continued in production in that form until, remarkably, February 1980.Probably the most famous Saab 96 in the world, HDF 918L was partially dismantled some years ago in preparation for a restoration that was never completed due to the owner's illness. It was rescued by restorer and broadcaster Ant Anstead for Series 2 of Channel 4. For the Love of Cars' in 2015. The work was undertaken by Ant and the team at restoration specialists MRH in Hertford. Firstly, the shell was fully stripped and assessed, then all welding repairs were completed before it could be painted in the original Saab Ambragelb Y8B, a very period yellow-gold. The original engine, gearbox and ancillaries were then rebuilt with new or reconditioned components and modern electronic ignition was fitted to improve cold starting and reliability. The wiring and electrical systems were either renewed or restored and the fuel system was also completely rebuilt with modern materials. A single choke Weber carburettor was fitted in order to utilise its manual choke. The brakes, steering and suspension were also completely rebuilt with new components throughout and fitted with poly bushes. The interior was partially trimmed in a high-quality tartan material, as a poignant gesture to the Scottish heritage of its previous owner, Chris, who sadly died of cancer before completing the restoration.As can be seen in the programme, our vendor Asif Ansari, paid a world record price for the model and made an emotional promise to Chris" family to auction the car for a cancer charity. Asif donated the car to benefit the Brain Tumour Research Trust and immediately bought it back for £15,000, an incredible gesture.We, therefore, have the honour of selling this very special Saab, with its 68,000 miles and MOT until November 2017, to benefit the remarkable work of Harrison"s Fund. We respect the generosity of Asif, and in doing so we are more than happy to donate 100% of the buyer's premium.For further information on Harrison"s Fund please visit their website https://harrisonsfund.com....more

1994 Porsche 968 Clubsport

1994 Porsche 968 Clubsport

Lot # 702 (Sale Order: 2 of 59)

The Porsche (project no.) 968 made its debut in 1991 and was effectively, the last gasp for the long-lived 924 line. Originally mooted as the 944S3, the new number was probably more a result of pressure from the marketing department, but it was right for recessionary Porsche wrestling with struggling sales.The 968 was well regarded and received excellent reviews, even if the UK market had to wait almost a year from launch to get it. It was powered by the 944 S2's 3.0-litre 4-cylinder engine producing 225lb ft of torque and 240bhp. but with variable valve timing to improve power, torque, fuel economy, and most importantly, driveability. Visually, it was the biggest step forward since the launch of the original 944 in 1981, with only the doors, roof and tailgate being carried over from the 944. The new front-end with 928 style pop-up headlamps did bring a touch of modernity.The interior trim was very similar to the 911 and 928, helping to justify the inflated list price, but not quite enough as sales were initially rather slow. However, all that changed in 1993 when the stripped-out, back-to-basics 'Club Sport' (Vereinsport) was launched. Porsche had set their sights on creating a car tailored for the driving enthusiast and, in particular, one with competition potential, and this they certainly did.This was achieved by removing all luxury-orientated equipment from the basic build specification. With the no-frills approach, less weight, and clever suspension, Porsche could now focus media attention on the Club Sport's fast road and track abilities, and the CS achieved a 'Performance Car Of The Year' award in 1993 from Performance Car magazine in the UK. In total, just 1,923 units were produced, of which only 179 were right-hand drive, making the Club Sport a very rare Porsche indeed.This 1994, 968 Club Sport is an original UK supplied car finished in Speed Yellow and was initially ordered with ,Comfort Seats" but these have been replaced with the correct matching yellow-shelled bucket seats. Currently showing 102,000 miles, at the time of cataloguing, the car was purchased by our vendor in 2009. Prior to his ownership, at circa 90,000mls, the car had benefited from a top end engine rebuild due to a snapped timing belt. The car was regularly driven in the first year of our vendor"s ownership, however, y 2011 the car became laid up in his small collection. Having recently emerged from its slumber the car has been subject to extensive refurbishment work. The body was restored including new front wings, new inner and outer sills and a complete glass out respray and, at the same time, all the mechanicals were gone through and returned to health. According to our vendor he found no evidence of extensive track work like so many other Club Sports. The brakes remain standard, no suspension strengthening struts, no roll cage mounting tell tales, standard springs and shocks also remain fitted. Unlike many comparable examples this car is presented with an excellent history file and extensive service history with almost all the regular services supported by invoices and a vast number of older MOTs.The 968 Club Sport was, and still is, one of the best handling cars of modern times and, with rarity is now increasing in value. Having enjoyed one of these cars on winding country roads, this consigner can confirm that the 968CS is one of the most well-balanced, and rewarding driving experiences money can buy.

1963 Jaguar Mk.II 3.8 Manual O/D

1963 Jaguar Mk.II 3.8 Manual O/D

Lot # 703 (Sale Order: 3 of 59)

This lovely Mk.II Jaguar left Browns Lane in November 1962 in right-hand drive form and was shipped to Africa where it was sold new to Scotford Mills Ltd. in early 1963 by the Southern Rhodesian distributor, Sagers. It was originally finished in Opalescent Gunmetal but now wears a handsome coat of Masons Black paint no doubt applied when the Coombs style upgrades were added to the car in the period from 2012-2014.Discovered in 2015 by our vendor, who lives six months of each year in South Africa, in the Gauteng Province (sufficiently inland to be certain of a significantly dry car) this Mk.II had already been modified and personalised to enhance its drivability and exclusivity. These modifications include Jaguar 420 power steering, electric windows, electric mirrors, new leather upholstered electric touring seats, a modern Kenwood radio and speakers in bespoke door cards, Garmin sat-nav built-in to the dashboard, an uprated cabin cooling system but, of course, retains the original manual gearbox with overdrive.Gloss Black really suits this car and is complemented by the Cream leather seats, black carpets edged in cream, the excellent veneers, and the E-Type wood rim steering wheel.Ours is a matching numbers chassis and engine car which in itself is unusual, and further benefits from having been thoroughly examined and serviced in 2015 by respected engineers, Automotive of Eccles in exchange for £2,750. They carefully went through the car dealing with any minor issues, the hubs were replaced, the rear brake cylinders were replaced, a new battery was fitted, the car was comprehensively serviced, and put through an MOT. To further enhance this striking Jaguar, it now sits on a gleaming new set of MWS chrome wire wheels. The car has been little used since, but prior to the sale it has had the carburettors balanced and tuned and a fresh MOT has just been granted. In addition to the MOT Certificate, it's accompanied by a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, the aforementioned Garmin sat nav, invoices to support the recent tuning and servicing, and the original steel wheels.Mk.II Jaguars really are very competent sporting saloons with timeless looks, and being an original, right-hand drive 3.8 we anticipate this car will be the recipient of some well-deserved attention at the sale....

1988 Peugeot 205 GTI 1.9 - 5,726 miles

1988 Peugeot 205 GTI 1.9 - 5,726 miles

Lot # 704 (Sale Order: 4 of 59)

The King of the hot hatches?Volkswagen may have started the GTI craze in 1976, but many still consider the Peugeot 205 GTI as the greatest of them all. The 205 was launched in 1983, a brilliant rival to its contemporaries with its ,wheel at each corner' design and flyweight mass. No wonder it won What Cars ,Car of the Year' in 1984 and was declared ,Car of the Decade' by CAR Magazine in 1990. The 205 1.6 GTI arrived in April 1984, singled out for its sublime handling and revvy 105bhp engine. The 1.9 GTI that followed in December 1986 was more of the same but with 128bhp and a bit more torque. This was all amidst the 205 T16 winning the World Rally Championship in 1985, helping to promote the road-going 205"s inherent abilities and ultimate potential. The GTI model was produced until 1994, firmly establishing itself as a must-have future classic and today, low-mileage, genuine examples are very rare, extremely hard to unearth and much sought-after. The car presented here is something very special indeed. This 1988, 205 GTI 1.9 has covered a quite exceptional and wholly verifiable mileage of just 5,726 miles from new. Silverstone Auctions have only ever known of another 205 GTI with such mileage, an example we sold in 2016 with 7,986 miles ndash; this being the current world record price achieved at auction for such a model, standing at £31,625. Renowned website 205gti.info confirms the car presented here as being a Phase 1.5 UK model (being model year 1989 but with an assembly entry date at the Mulhouse factory of 20.09.88), having the XU9JA (non-cat) 128bhp engine and supplied in Alpine White paintwork with Red ,Quattro" velour and Grey Leather seating. The car displays all the features that make it wholly consistent with its type and phase, plus it has lightweight Speedline alloy wheels and no sunroof.The car was first registered on the 24th November 1988 to the Peugeot Talbot Motor Company Ltd. and stills wears the evocative registration number ending in ,OKV", which is famous for having been used on other Peugeot-owned press or ,poster" cars over the years. The car was subsequently offered by Peugeot as a prize in association with ,Grattan", the catalogue clothing retailer, which was open to all their agents throughout the country. The car was won by a lady from Ipswich, but she was unable to drive. The local newspaper at the time ran the headline ,Winner of £10,000 car cannot drive". The woman"s husband collected the car on her behalf from the local Peugeot dealership ,Anglia Garage", and it was registered to him on the 22nd December 1988. The couple actually preferred to use their existing larger car, so drove the 205 GTI very infrequently, keeping it garaged and maintained. They kept it for the sake of posterity before selling it to our Peugeot-enthusiast vendor in December 2012, with the mileage then being 5,329. He is a true marque expert, having a small collection of prize-winning 205 GTI models, and is truly exacting when it comes to detail on these cars. During his ownership the car has been stored methodically, has never seen the rain and has been maintained regardless of cost, time or the mileage covered. The car is not portrayed as being in ,Concours condition" - these examples are often extensively restored - and certainly, it could be with just the minimum of work, but is authentic and unfettered, even down to its original factory-fitted distributor bag still being in place! The car is accompanied by its history file containing a complete and original Peugeot book pack containing the original stamped-up service schedule, instructions manuals etc., all previous MoT certificates (minus just one in recent years), numerous invoices for servicing and maintenance ndash; many of which are from Peugeot Talbot performance specialists ,Skip Brown Cars" of Cheshire, two keys (with an ,Anglia Garage" key-ring), a newspaper clipping documenting the handover to the prize winner's husband and two old style V5 documents showing Peugeot and one other as the only previous keepers. There is even a set of extremely rare Michelin MXV-P period tyres, which were an original fitting on these cars.Here then is the perfect storm ndash; a model of car that is tipped for future appreciation, in a condition which is only achievable with a fully documented low mileage, with only one real previous owner and a great story. This is the type of car that the expression best-of-breed was coined to describe.

1972 Jaguar E-Type Roadster V12 Series III

1972 Jaguar E-Type Roadster V12 Series III

Lot # 705 (Sale Order: 5 of 59)

A decade after the Jaguar E-Type arrived, the design progressively matured through various developments until 1971 when the Series III was introduced. Designed to showcase the new smooth and torquey 5.3-litre engine, originally developed for Le Mans, the Series III cars were available as a ,Roadster' (convertible) or a '2+2' Coupeacute;. These later cars are easily distinguished from their six-cylinder predecessors by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, a pronounced bonnet bulge, updated bumpers, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. It also featured uprated brakes, power steering as standard and a large horizontal scoop added to the underside of the bonnet to assist with cooling.The interior was entirely new in the V12, with more comfortable seating, stylish new door panels and a smaller, dished and leather-rimmed steering wheel. Being slightly larger and altogether much softer in nature, the E-Type in Series III form had lost the wildness of its youth but gained the long-legged touring profile, to which it was arguably better suited. Approximately 7,990 Series lll Roadsters were sold worldwide before production ceased in 1975.We are pleased to offer this original right-hand drive, UK-supplied 1972 E-type Series III roadster. According to its Jaguar Heritage Certificate, it was built on the 5th. May 1972, finished in Signal Red with a Black interior and was fitted with a manual gearbox. It was dispatched from Jaguar on the 26th May and sent to Fletchers of Swansea and subsequently first registered on the 1st of June. 1972. Bearing the Swansea registration EWN 393K, this shiny new E-type was collected by its delighted first owner, one W K Eynon, later that month. Presumably equally delighted, our vendor's father, Anthony Michael O'Connor, acquired the car (now registered OUH 479M) on 28/06/1991 and enjoyed the late summer with the top down before presenting it for an MOT on 13/09/91 with the mileage recorded at 14,057. The car was used lightly over the next few years and, on 1/05/1999 its care was entrusted to his son, Mr M G O'Connor, and the car was duly registered in his name. Again the Jaguar was obviously used infrequently as the mileometer was only indicating 16,310 when it was subject to an MOT test on 29/04/2000.This has been the pattern since, as is apparent from the car's MOT history showing increments, in many cases, of less than 100 miles a year. The most recent MOT on 12/04/2017 shows a figure of 17,428 which has changed very little since.This lack of use, however, does not mean the E-Type was poorly maintained and there are invoices within the file from local Jaguar specialists, Newlands Motors of Forest Row, Sussex detailing servicing and routine maintenance in addition to dealing with any other issues that arose. There is one dated 31/7/13 (£2,420) for a routine service and at this point, a new 'Fantail Exhaust' was fitted, front swivel gaitors and clutch slave cylinder were replaced, and the car was valeted and machine polished. A similar one on 21/08/14 (£2,055) lists a new alternator, voltage regulator, steering rack and swivel gaitor replacement, and in addition, a steering lock was fitted and wired in. The most recent invoice on 7/10/16 (£1,440) refers to work on the brakes, indicators and ignition amplifier.Although well maintained and gently used, this lovely Series III would benefit from some recommissioning and light detailing. Cars of this nature are happiest when they are used and extended, and we envy the new owner of this lovely E-Type the opportunity of doing so.

1950 Fiat based Siata Roadster 'Appreciation'

1950 Fiat based Siata Roadster 'Appreciation'

Lot # 706 (Sale Order: 6 of 59)

Siata (Societagrave; Italiana Auto Trasformazioni Accessori) was an Italian car tuning shop and manufacturer founded in 1926 by amateur racing driver Giorgio Ambrosini initially selling performance parts to modify and tune cars manufactured by Fiat.After World War II, the company began building its own brand of sports cars which continued until the mid-1970s starting with the first wholly original design of the 'Siata Amica' (1948 to 1952) which was then followed by the 300BC Barchetta Sport Spider in 1951. Designed by Mario Revelli de Beaumont and built by Nuccio Bertone and Rocco Motto, around 50 production models were created and were mainly powered by either a 750cc Crosley or 1100cc Fiat engine.The Siata 208S, introduced in 1953, featured Fiat's 2.0-litre 8V engine and 35 cars were produced between 1953 and 1955 priced at $5,300. They were available as a convertible (Spider) or a coupeacute;. The 208 Spider was an incredibly beautiful machine, typical of Italian 'Barchettas' of the period, a fact that didn't go unnoticed by legendary actor Steve McQueen who purchased model BS523 from Los Angeles-based Siata importer Ernie McCaffe in the mid-1950s. According to Bruce Sand, who subsequently bought the Siata, McQueen had replaced the front Siata badge with a Ferrari shield and dubbed the car his "Little Ferrari".This Siata 'Homage' is a superbly built, fully aluminium-bodied roadster and bears a visual similarity to Siata roadsters from the early fifties. The front has obviously been influenced by the 208 CS Bertone Spider Corsa from 1953 and the rear is reminiscent of the '52 300BC Sport Spider. The net result is a striking motor car that is pure fifties'Italian.The chassis is from a 1950 Fiat together with the suspension, steering, and brakes. The engine is a tuned 1100cc with a performance manifold, twin-choke Weber carburettor, and four-Speed manual transmission. Formerly part of a deceased estate, documentation includes copies of the former Italian Libretto and a current UK V5C.This, lovingly crafted, charming little Italian sports car sits on Borrani-style, knock-off wire wheels and is finished in Metallic Royal Blue with twin black upholstered race seats. There is enough room for a passenger and a small boot area for luggage when on a tour or a rally.

1988 Porsche 944 Turbo 'S'

1988 Porsche 944 Turbo 'S'

Lot # 707 (Sale Order: 7 of 59)

In 1986, Porsche launched the new 944 Turbo featuring a 220bhp, 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine which was essentially a turbocharged standard unit but with strengthened internals to cope with the increase in power. The 944 Turbo was well received and sold well, prompting Porsche to revamp the model in early 1988. The 'Turbo' had been the basis of the highly successful and entertaining F1-supporting 'Turbo Cup', similar to today's 'GT3 Super Cup'. A decision was made to uprate the power of the full-race cars, and it was decided that the power upgrade should be passed on to the road cars culminating in the launch of the Porsche 944 Turbo 'S' with 250bhp.The Turbo S was undoubtedly the fastest 944 and was introduced in 1988 as a limited production run, with a specification the emulated the "Turbo Cup" race cars. Improvements included the M44/52 engine (with a new turbocharger, modified turbine vanes and enhanced DME mapping), a stronger clutch, transmission and limited slip differential, plus larger 12" front disc brakes (similar to the 928 S4), adjustable Koni suspension (via the M030 option package) and special 'Club Sport' alloy wheels.Initially, there were 1,000 Turbo S cars built of which 77 were sold in the UK. All these cars had the same Silver with a hint of Pink paintwork (affectionately called "Silberrosa" or Silver Rose) and the Burgundy Studio Check cloth interior and all were equipped to Option Code M758. Following the initial run of Silver Rose cars and in response to customer demand, midway through 1988 any colour from the Porsche catalogue, along with any interior option, could be specified instead of the 'Silver Rose' scheme. All the cars featured a stylised 'Turbo' script on the wing as a gesture to earlier high-performance Porsches, and cost a huge 10% more than a standard Turbo. The car presented here is very special indeed and is a genuine, UK-supplied, 1988 944 Turbo 'S', having been first registered on the 1st August of that year. The chassis and engine numbers conform to the specific ranges for these limited-run cars. It's also one of only a handful produced in Guards Red and has covered just over 86,000 miles since 1988, in the hands of its three fastidious owners. Included with the car are the original driver's manual and maintenance booklet, which contains stamps from various Porsche specialists throughout its life. Our vendor has owned the car since 2005 and has entrusted the car to CMS Porsche during this period and they have stamped the booklet between 2006 and 2008, and more recently in 2016 for a re-commission service, as the car had remained in storage, on SORN, in his collection for nearly 10 years. There is also an invoice from CMS Porsche in the history file detailing the work involved in the recent re-commission to prepare this cherished Porsche for its new owner. The MoT Certificate is valid until October this year.Presenting superbly, this is a lovely example of this rare 1980's classic Porsche and these limited edition models are much sought-after by marque enthusiasts for good reason, so don't miss out!

2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG 'F1'

2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG 'F1'

Lot # 708 (Sale Order: 8 of 59)

The Mercedes-Benz 'R230' first appeared in 2001 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but it was in 2003 that the seriously powerful and stunning looking SL55 AMG version was introduced. Massively fast and very distinctive looking, the 5.4-litre engine produced 476 BHP and pulled 520lbs feet of torque!The SL 55 AMG was further enhanced by an 'F1' Performance Package offering a host of impressive upgrades from standard specification. Closely derived from the official FIA Safety Car for 2002, the 'F1' pack included; light-weight, hollow spoke, 19" split rim alloy wheels, an LSD, larger floating disc brakes and big callipers, uprated cooling, revised front grille, darker rear lights and increased power. This option came in at a cost of around £20,000 alone!This particular SL55 AMG 'F1' was supplied new in December 2003, finished in Tanzanite Blue with a full Grey leather interior, including a smooth grey leather dashboard and a rarely ordered Alcantara roof lining. Other options included a cooled centre glove box, pulse seats - heated and vented, a panoramic roof with retractable shade, 6 CD-changer, Sat Nav and TV tuner, keyless entry and go, Bose sound system and AMG over mats. The car has also had a performance enhancement at the hands of DMS Automotive, who have Stage 2 tuned it to include a re-map of the ECU and a new pulley set, resulting in a whopping 605bhp!The maintenance history of this car is as impeccable, with it always returning to a Mercedes-Benz main dealer for servicing. The service book was last stamped in December 2016 at Mercedes-Benz Newbury when it had covered 37,721 miles. In the care of our fastidious vendor, the car has been treated to new front shock absorbers, new discs and pads all round, and a new set of tyres.Supplied with all of its original books, 2 sets of keys, a UK V5c and an MOT until 30th May 2018, this stunning looking car is finished in one of the most desirable colour combinations and will embarrass most supercars off the lights - the ultimate 'sleeper'. *Please note that the vendor is retaining his private registration plate and the car will be issued with a new registration

1967 Fiat 1000 Abarth TC

1967 Fiat 1000 Abarth TC

Lot # 709 (Sale Order: 9 of 59)

Fiat Abarths were built in Italy by Abarth S.P.A. from 1949 onwards. They specialised in modifying various cars, more latterly Fiats, for high-performance road driving and racing. One of the models that they converted in the 1960s was the Fiat 600D which was highly modified, lightened and given bigger wheels and tyres, a close ratio gearbox, racing seats and harnesses and an Abarth spec 1000cc engine.This particular little yellow Abarth 1000 was acquired by rock legend Jay Kay of Jamiroquai in December 2003 and has remained in his significant and varied collection until today. Supplied by noted Abarth specialists - Middle Barton Garage - the car was then registered AMC 806H. Unfortunately, the logbook for the car was lost and never found which necessitated the car having to be re-registered as ABW 194E for use on the road, the original registration number having been reallocated by the DVLA to another car. Maintained and looked after as part of Jay's extensive collection, the car has covered very few miles during his ownership and offers an interesting part of Fiat history for a relatively modest outlay. Still great fun to drive, but now in need of a bit of TLC - it's an ideal and rare car to use, enjoy and perhaps restore to its former glory.

1994 Lancia Delta Integrale 16V II

1994 Lancia Delta Integrale 16V II

Lot # 710 (Sale Order: 10 of 59)

The Lancia Delta was introduced in 1979 but more significantly as an homologation special "Integrale" in the late 1980s, to allow their four-wheel drive rally car to compete in International rallies. The second generation, as offered here, came out in 1993 with more power, bigger wheels and tyres (and associated wheel arches), and a 16-valve engine with twin distributors giving both more torque and more power.This particular Evo II was supplied new to Italy in 1994 and was subsequently imported to the UK in the year 2000. This was common practice at that time as the car was only ever produced in left-hand drive form and was supplied in very limited numbers directly to the UK.It was acquired by rock legend, Jamiroquai front man and well-known car collector, Jay Kay, in 2009 and has formed a part of his significant collection ever since. Frustrated by an engine misfire the car was recently sent by Jay to highly respected Lancia specialists, Walkers, for a complete engine rebuild in Jan 2017 which included a block rebore, cylinder head skimming, polished crankshaft bearing journals, and new forged pistons and new bearings all round. The car is still running in!The cost of this work was £8,260 and the bill is in the comprehensive history file. These Delta Integrale II's are recognised now as rare and collectable and this example, finished in red, seems to offer the astute collector a great opportunity, direct from one of the most significant collections in the UK.

1986 BMW M5 (E28)

1986 BMW M5 (E28)

Lot # 711 (Sale Order: 11 of 59)

"The worlds fastest four door saloon" was the tag given to the BMW M5 when introduced in February 1984 at the Amsterdam Motor Show. The E28 was a fantastic base chassis which BMW's 'M Division" then modified by hand to create the original M5. They changed the engine, gearbox, suspension, brakes, seating, dash, steering wheel, wheels and tyres, and finally the spoiler and body kit. It was an epic performance car and just 129 right-hand drive cars were ever produced, with this particular car being the UK press car.In addition to fitting the amazing 3.5-litre, 24 valve engine, originally found in the BMW M1, the car was offered with a very high spec including ABS, Air con and leather upholstery. This particular car, however, also had many unique options specified, including:Blue Black special paintSpecial red leather upholsteryDe-ChromingElectric sunroofRear window blindElectric front seatsRear seat head restraintsHeadlamp wash wipeIt has one of the most comprehensive history files we have ever seen, with all bills, invoices and receipts from the very beginning. The mileage today is 150,000 but the car has had professional rebuilds to the engine, gearbox, suspension, bodywork and differential during it's recent life and has been maintained fastidiously throughout. It ticks over beautifully, pulls strongly and shows no sign of smoke. It gives the same rewarding drive as it did back in the day with crisp, precise handling and lots of power available through the delightful close ratio manual gearbox. Offered direct from the well known classic stable of rock legend Jay Kay of Jamiroquai, it represents a very rare opportunity to own an important part of BMW's amazing history dating back to when BMW really were world leaders in producing very high performance, low volume, luxury cars.

Lot # 712 (Sale Order: 12 of 59)

Launched at the 1973 Frankfurt Motor Show, the 2002 Turbo was BMW's first turbocharged production car and also one of the first turbocharged production cars in the world. Giving 170 bhp and 240 NM of torque, courtesy of slide throttle bodies, it was a seriously quick car at the time. This particular car was one of the very first classic cars that rock legend and leader of Jamiroquai, Jay Kay, ever purchased back in 1995. He was to become a serious collector, and this very car is an early milestone in that special collection and has been enjoyed by him for over 22 years.It's the first time this 2002 Turbo has been offered for sale since he bought it and is a very rare example of the breed. It has benefitted from continuous maintenance throughout his ownership and was originally one of the rare UK supplied examples, with the speedometer reading in miles per hour. Today the car has covered 65,000 miles from new corroborated by all its old MOTs. We can confirm it still drives very well, looks fabulous, and represents an excellent opportunity to try Classic BMW ownership. Coming to the Sale with a fresh MOT, its an iconic car of the era with an outstanding history and known provenance.

1996 Aston Martin DB7 i6 Volante

1996 Aston Martin DB7 i6 Volante

Lot # 713 (Sale Order: 13 of 59)

Introduced to an astonished public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin's first six-cylinder model since production of the DBS had finished in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen if you looked carefully. Arguably, one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the '7' was more approachable than the leviathans that had immediately preceded it. Well received, it attracted new customers worldwide, with the traditional layout of the curvaceous two door coupeacute; body, robust six-cylinder engine and a 'proper' interior. Power was supplied by an all-alloy, double overhead camshaft, supercharged, 24-valve, in-line six-cylinder engine which produced 335bhp at 5750rpm. In the same way that the beautiful little Sixties' Lotus Elan morphed, over the years, into the be-winged Esprit Turbo, the DB7 was the first in the line of modern Astons that have become more dramatic with each new model, however, we feel that the simple purity of line of the DB7, will ultimately define the breedWe are very pleased to be able to offer this very special and important Volante presented in British Racing Green with a stunning Chancellor Red Leather interior, having covered just 55,500 miles.Originally supplied new to the Sultan of Brunei, this car has been extremely well looked after having been part of, possibly, the worlds largest car collection when it was new, and is beautifully presented with a huge history file and comes, no doubt, with a story or two.From long-term ownership since 2005, with a glamorous Royal history prior to that, and in this classically British and very stylish colour combination, this truly must be a future modern classic. The car will be supplied freshly serviced by a respected local Aston Martin Specialist.SERVICE HISTORYFrom New stored in very famous car collection.30.08.2002 - 821 miles - Hunt Keal Ltd05.09.2003 - 7,697 miles - Hunt Keal Ltd09.04.2004 - 14,386 miles - Hunt Keal Ltd01.11.2004 - 20,798 miles - Aston Martin Works Service19.05.2005 - 23,220 miles - Hunt Keal Ltd17.05.2006 - 26,885 miles - Hunt Keal Ltd10.01.2007 - 31,921 miles - Hunt Keal Ltd27.09.2007 - 36,492 miles - Hunt Keal Ltd21.12.2007 - 39,553 miles - Hunt Keal Ltd10.03.2012 - 52,383 miles - Chelsea Motor Company04.07.2013 - 52,623 miles- Chelsea Motor Company15.07.2014 - 53,052 miles - Chelsea Motor Company16.07.2015 - 53,319 miles - Chelsea Motor Company05.07.2017 - 55,532 miles - Four Ashes Garage - Aston Martin SpecialistsMOT HISTORY18.10.2005 - 23,220 miles04.01.2007 - 31,921 miles12.012.2007 - 39,553 miles10.03.2009 - 48,920 miles20.07.2010 - 50,664 miles20.10.2011 - 52,339 miles10.07.2013 - 52,623 miles15.07.2014 - 53,052 miles25.07.2015 - 53,319 miles27.07.2016 - 54,629 miles01.06.2017 - 55,711 milesDB7s are the quintessential British Sports Cars of the late nineties.

1996 Alfa Romeo RZ

1996 Alfa Romeo RZ

Lot # 714 (Sale Order: 14 of 59)

The product of another successful collaboration between Alfa Romeo and Zagato, the Sprint Zagato (SZ) and the later Roadster Zagato (RZ) were all built in left-hand drive and were powered by the Alfa 75's 3.0-litre V6 engine capable of a reported 210 horsepower. The Alfa 75 floorpan was the basis of both cars, whilst the bodywork was a thermos-plastic / injection-moulded composite with an aluminium roof. Only 1,036 SZ cars were produced and only 284 RZ models, making this a very rare and collectable car today.This particular example is No.187 in the production series and is finished in Giallo Fly Yellow with a Nero leather interior. Exported to Japan, the history file includes records of the service history whilst there. The car made its way to the UK and has now been registered with the DVLA. It was then sold by respected Ferrari specialist Joe Macari to the previous owner, who used the car very little.Most recently it has had a light service and the wheels have been refurbished. The car will arrive at the auction with a fresh MOT and is supplied with a UK V5c. Now showing an unwarranted 36,946km this car presents an opportunity to own a special piece of Alfa Romeo history.

2010 Ford Focus RS500 - 206km from new

2010 Ford Focus RS500 - 206km from new

Lot # 715 (Sale Order: 15 of 59)

The Ford Focus RS500 made its global debut at the Leipzig Motor Show on April 9th, 2010 and marked the final swansong for production of the remarkable, second generation, Focus RS. The last vehicles left Ford's Assembly Plant in Germany during September 2010.The new and more powerful, limited edition Focus RS500 model was launched as the ultimate performance Ford to provide the definitive driving experience for serious performance car enthusiasts. The new model was given the RS500 designation to highlight its strictly limited production run of 500 individually-numbered vehicles. The 500 features a muscular 345bhp, 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine, which generates 15% more power than the standard Focus RS and delivers truly exhilarating performance.In the raw, the RS looked a bit of a 'beastie'. With its gaping grille, 19inch wheels, flared arches, deep diffuser, and a wing that would embarrass a Porsche Turbo, it left you in no doubt about its intentions. However, the RS500 is even more dramatic. The limited edition model sports a unique matt black 'foil' paint finish with matching alloy wheels and delivers a powerful visual impact unmatched by any other production Ford.The development programme included a dedicated endurance test at the infamous Nordschleife, where Ford 'TeamRS' engineers were joined by three Ford-employed racing drivers, working in shifts, to complete 10,000km of non-stop driving, equivalent to competing in ten consecutive Nuuml;rburgring 24-hour races without a break.This genuine Focus RS500 is number 70/500. The car was built in left-hand drive and was delivered new to Switzerland where it has spent its entire life stored in a dealership as a display item with only minimal use as a demonstrator in the early days.As a result, the car has covered the incredibly low mileage of just 206kms (128mls) and, as you would expect, is presented in exceptional condition.Imported into the UK earlier this year, having never been registered before, the car has been registered for the first time with the Ford Type Approval granted and will come with a UK V5C and an MOT at the time of sale.Recently the car has been serviced with a precautionary brake fluid change and new battery. The car comes with its original unused Service Book, all the keys and the alloy wheel lock still in its sealed bag.This example is a true collector's item and offers a potentially unrepeatable opportunity to own a delivery-mileage Focus RS500. The car joins a long line of iconic RS Fords and is a worthy recipient of the RS500 badge which became synonymous with success when the legendary Sierra RS500 Cosworth dominated saloon car racing during the late 1980s.

2004 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

2004 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

Lot # 716 (Sale Order: 16 of 59)

The 612 Scaglietti was the replacement for the 456 and is larger and more spacious with serious presence, but still displays the deftness of touch of the legendary House of Pininfarina.As a mark of respect for their decades-long working relationship, Ferrari named the 612 after the legendary Sergio Scaglietti, whose famous design house 'Carrozzeria Scaglietti' was responsible for the look of some of the most stunning coachbuilt Ferraris in the fifties and sixties. The design of the 612 is said to have been inspired by the 1954 Rossellini-Bergman custom 375MM, which was commissioned by film director Roberto Rossellini for his lovely wife, the actress Ingrid Bergman. The model features deep side scallops and large headlights together with a long, sleek silhouette and the result is an imposing, unusual looking car, projecting dynamism and power. This sporty front-engined rear-wheel drive Berlinetta is a paradox Ferrari, being an energetic car to drive, yet also having four full seats for passengers, making it suitable for longer journeys and city use too. A genuine departure from previous GT models, the 612 Scaglietti's transaxle transmission sees the rear-mounted, 6 speed, F1 gearbox working with the limited-slip differential in a shared function and this, combined with the first ever all-aluminium body in a 12-cylinder Ferrari, makes for fantastic dynamics as well as improved comfort and safety.This right-hand drive 612 Scaglietti was supplied new to Singapore on 26th October 2004 in the superb colour combination of Rubino Metallizzato with Crema/Tan interior. In June 2015 it was sold by its first Singaporean owner and subsequently imported to the UK. It was registered soon after and serviced by Dick Lovett in 2015. This included four new tyres, ball joints and new rear discs and pads. It was serviced again in 2016 by DK Engineering where the ball joints were replaced, geometry set up and sender unit replaced.Having now covered a total of 36,200 miles, this example is presented in lovely condition. The paintwork retains a good shine and the panel gaps are straight and true. The full specification includes Full Leather Extended Leather Package with Embossed Cavallino on each headrest, Tan Carpets, Nero Brake Calipers, Scuderia Wing Shields, an F1 Gearbox and staggered 18"/19" 5-spoke design alloy wheels.Four seat Ferraris have traditionally been somewhat overlooked as collector's cars. However, this 612 Scaglietti has all the makings of a future classic, an eclectic and historically influenced design, paired with innovative technology and modern elements. The 612 moves forward whilst staying faithful to its past, and with right-hand drive examples built in relatively low numbers, this is a collectors car with real appreciation potential.

1942 Ford GPW 'Willys' Jeep

1942 Ford GPW 'Willys' Jeep

Lot # 717 (Sale Order: 17 of 59)

In early 1940, the United States Department of War had determined it needed a light, cross-country, four-wheel drive, reconnaissance vehicle and was anxious to have one in time for, what may possibly turn out to be, America's entry into World War II in Europe. The U.S. Army solicited proposals from domestic car manufacturers for a replacement for its existing, ageing, light motor vehicles, mainly motorcycles and sidecars, and some Ford Model Ts. Recognizing the need to create standard specifications, the Army formalised its requirements on July 11, 1940, and submitted them to 135 U.S. automotive manufacturers.It's a matter of history that ultimately two manufacturers were successful, Willys with their MB (US quarter-ton Army truck) and later, Ford with their GPW (in production designated GP.)Impressively the time taken from conception and tenders being sent out, to the production lines starting to roll, was less than two hundred days, amazing for a vehicle that has stood the test of time and become an unlikely motoring icon.This ability to get things done quickly and well was the deciding factor in America being asked to produce military hardware in vast numbers and build hundreds of ships, arguably influencing the outcome of the Second World War.As the war progressed Willys-Overland produced over 300,000 Jeeps and the Ford Motor Co. was drafted in to help boost production and contributed over 250,000 units. Ford assembled Jeeps were recognizable by their pressed steel grilles as opposed to the Willys' slat style grille.Considering the manner in which the Jeep was conceived and its role in warfare, it's remarkable that most of the finest classic car collections will include a Willys or Ford WWII Jeep, making the restored example offered here a candidate for serious consideration should one of these yardstick cars have, so far, eluded you.This excellent and rare, Ford built, GPW Jeep was imported into the UK in 2012 having been fastidiously restored by the President of the Ford GPW Owners Club in the USA and is a consummate piece of military history.A USB drive, included with the cars history file, documents the restoration. Every nut and bolt received attention and the detail is fantastic, even down to the period tools and heavy-duty tow rope attached to the vehicle.'Wendy', as she is affectionately known, was purchased by our vendor through Silverstone Auctions about a year ago, but a change in circumstances mean he is now reducing his collection. He described the car as being ldquo;In brilliant condition thenrdquo; and the only improvements he could make were to balance the propshaft, fit a new fuel gauge, and replace one damper. He also fitted a dashboard mounted rifle holder and a realistic replica rifle.Every rural car show in the country now has a section for Military Vehicles, and with WW2 re-enactments and the prestigious classic car meetings all clamouring for 1940's Jeeps, this stunningly well-restored example could keep you busy for the rest of the Summer.

1993 Lancia Delta Integrale Evo II

1993 Lancia Delta Integrale Evo II

Lot # 718 (Sale Order: 18 of 59)

First seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1979, the Lancia Delta Integrale is best known for its domination of the World Rally Championship in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Constantly being developed, the first ,Evoluzione' cars were built at the end of 1991 and carried on through 1992 and these 'Evo' models were to be the final homologation cars built for the Lancia Rally Team competing under the Martini Racing banner. Arriving in June 1993, a further development of the HF Integrale naturally became known as the Evo II and featured an updated version of the 2-litre 16-valve turbo engine producing a little more power (215bhp) and incorporated a three-way catalyst and a Lambda probe, with everything being run by a new Marelli integrated engine control system.In addition to the mechanical changes, the Evo II received a cosmetic and functional facelift that included, new 16" light alloy rims with 205/45 ZR 16 tyres, a body colour roof moulding to underline the connection between the roof and the Solar control windows, an aluminium fuel cap and air-intake grilles on the front mudguards, a red-painted cylinder head, a new leather-covered three-spoke MOMO steering wheel, and Recaro seats upholstered in beige Alcantara with diagonal stitching.This Evo II is finished in yellow paintwork with a very rare dark grey Alcantara with yellow stitching interior. Showing an unwarranted 74,647 kilometres or 46,383 miles, the bodywork all presents very well and the paintwork retains a good shine, but has been painted at some point in its life. The door shuts and panel gaps look even and the whole car retains a sense of originality. The interior is especially impressive and is very original with minimal wear to the Alcantara seats.On the road, this Evo II feels tight and pulled hard through all gears. The car has just been serviced by marque specialists Zagato Lancia Performance at a cost of £9,000. A full bill of works completed is available to prospective bidders in the ownership file.Having been imported from Japan there is a limited history file but this Evo II does have a current MOT and is fully UK registered with no taxes to pay. Ready to be driven and enjoyed, this Integrale is set off with OZ Racing rims, which give the car a wonderfully menacing street presence. We welcome pre-sale inspections and the car will be driven to the auction.

1969 Porsche 911 T

1969 Porsche 911 T

Lot # 719 (Sale Order: 19 of 59)

Porsche's long-running and much-loved 911 sports car first appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show as the '901', but shortly after production proper commenced in 1964 had become the '911' following Peugeot's complaints about the use of '0' model numbers.The preceding Type 356's rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement.In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six engine displaced 1,991cc. The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S and in 1967 the 911T (Touring) was introduced as a new 2.0-litre model. Further revisions were made in 1969 when the 911's wheelbase had been extended by 57mm, which transformed the handling of the car and paved the way for the 911 to become one of the greatest driving experiences available.This, very early, left-hand drive, 1969 911 'T' was initially delivered to California finished in its original colour combination of Sand Beige with a Black interior. Looking for a good basis for an early 911 project, our vendor sourced, purchased and imported the car into the UK in 2015.The car was then subject to a sympathetic restoration in 2016 with bills on file exceeding £20,000. This work included an engine rebuild including new oil pump, big ends/main and intermediate bearings, new con-rods, valves/guides, head studs, clutch assembly, brake lines and hoses etc. The body was also subject to considerable work including some light repairs to the floor and sills and a complete repaint back to Sand Beige with new interior trim and lights fitted at the same time. Inside, a new headlining, carpets and seats were also fitted and again finished as per original specification and a period Blaupunkt 'Blue spot' remains.The Fuchs five-blade alloys look unmarked and set the car off perfectly.It's accompanied by a good history file containing many invoices documenting the restoration and expenditure. EU import tax has been paid but the car is currently unregistered and still awaits registration in your country of choice.This is an absolutely splendid early 911T. The unusual colour really suits the car and viewed in profile, the shape is pure unadorned, unfettered, un-molested 911 and it's easy to see why these cars really set the benchmark in sports car design.

1964 VW Type 2 (T1) 'Double Door Walk-through' Camper

1964 VW Type 2 (T1) 'Double Door Walk-through' Camper

Lot # 720 (Sale Order: 20 of 59)

The Volkswagen 'Type 2' was introduced in 1950 as a multi-variant utility vehicle and was designated as a Transporter, Kombi or Microbus depending on body type. It was conceived as a natural partner to the Volkswagen Type 1, better known as the original 'Beetle'. The first generation of these versatile vehicles carried the works nomenclature T1 and were produced with distinctive split-screens (subsequently known as 'Splitties') from 1950 until 1967, and these have become the most sought-after models. The Type 2 presented here, is extremely rare and widely considered to be one of only three ,Double-Door-Walk-Through" campers still remaining. Its type, configuration and history are supported by both the all-important 'M-Code' plate and chassis number plate, which are proudly still in place, denoting it as the ,holy-grail" - cargo doors right and left/walk-through.Built in Germany on the 26th August 1964, this Type 2 was exported new to San Francisco whereupon renowned camper company ,EZ Campers" of Little Rock, California set about installing one of their bespoke interiors with accessories, before it was sold through the main Volkswagen Dealership. This camper still retains its exceptionally rare and highly desirable EZ front steps. The slogan at the time proudly declared ,"EZ Camper will convert your VW 211 Van into a wonderful weekend cabin on wheels!"" This particular Type 2, with its double doors on both sides, lends itself to this mantra perfectly, with the potential for a tent awning on either flank.It is known to have spent most of its life in the Sacramento area, having been owned by a local airport worker. After a period of inactivity, it was bought at a VW Show in Vallejo by ,Vintage Warehouse" who are a globally renowned company specialising in unique and unusual Volkswagens. It was used by the company owner for a number of years, and it was during this period that it was fitted with its ,pop-top" and double-roof bunk arrangement. It became something of a star after appearing in a series of ,Tent Day" photo-shoots which are very well known to Volkswagen aficionados. These images are present in the history file, along with much more.The camper was imported into the UK in 2005 and has been owned by our vendor ever since. During this time it has undergone a no-expense-spared traditional method of restoration done by ,Volksworld" show-winners ,Haywood Classic Custom". Its ownership file contains many receipts, totalling approximately £50,000, plus photographic evidence of the step-by-step restoration process. Its condition today is quite exceptional and presents well in the sophisticated colour combination of Agave Green (L240) and Silver White (L820). Using the original ,EZ Campers" template, whilst retaining the original EZ pull-down bed, the whole interior has been significantly upgraded with the use of teak and marine-ply, all professionally installed and French polished. The leather seating was created by the multi-show winning ,Bernard Newbury Auto Interiors". It has been completely rewired and fitted with an 'Eberspacher' heater, very effective in these vehicles, and great attention has been paid to insulation and sound deadening. With its EZ bed and double-roof bunk beds, it comfortably sleeps four people.The engine is a genuine 'new-old-stock' 1600cc twin-port, single carb and points, VW unit purchased directly from the VW factory in Mexico. This was sourced and installed with all new ancillaries (fuel pump, uprated alternator etc.) in 2008. It has been serviced regularly, performs extremely well, and has covered just 5,000 miles (approximately). The gearbox was overhauled by ,Bears Motor Sport UK" in 2016 and the brakes have been upgraded with discs on the front and drums at the rear. With the restoration completed in 2012, the camper has been used sparingly since and has been cherished by our fastidious, VW enthusiast, vendor. This special camper has largely been kept out of the public eye, known only to a select few within the VW community, but on one of the rare occasions it has been ,out about", it won a national show! Rarely does such a rare and individual Volkswagen come to market and we welcome any inspection.

2009 Porsche 911 (997) GT2

2009 Porsche 911 (997) GT2

Lot # 721 (Sale Order: 21 of 59)

The prospect of combining the most powerful turbo engine in their range at the time, with a manual gearbox and mounting them in a two-wheel drive, lightweight 911 was the inspiration for the, rather special, Porsche 911 GT2. At the same time, Porsche upgraded and modified the suspension and brakes, and increased the engine output whilst lightening and removing interior components, to create the ultimate driver's version of the 911 at that time. This recipe has been used with the 993, 996 and 997, and, no doubt, will be used in future versions of their iconic 911.This car is the GT2 version of the Porsche 911 (997), introduced in 2008 and produced until 2012. The engine uses twin variable geometry water cooled turbochargers producing a serious 523bhp and 500 lbs foot of torque, resulting in a maximum speed in excess of 204 mph and a 0-60mph time of just 3.7 seconds!For the first time, it"s loaded with the electronic goodies enjoyed by lesser models, though PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) and PSM, in particular, are tailored to its unique character. As with the 996 GT2, its development has not been shaped by the demands and regulations of a race category and at first glance, it looks quite tame, just another iteration of the high-performance 911 with its gaping-mouthed, more ground-hugging nose, and different biplane rear spoiler. However, the longer you look and the more you contemplate the numbers, the more menacing the new GT2 seems. Initially, you don"t notice the slightly nose-down rake or the fact that the wide, Turbo rear arches are brimful of rubber. Step closer, and you can see that those rear tyres are 325/30 ZR19s ndash; for reference, a Lamborghini Murcieacute;lago wears 335s ndash; and then that they"re lightly-treaded Michelin Pilot Sport Cups.That new rear spoiler is a bit special, too. Like the 993 GT2"s, it"s hollow and the intakes that sit in the air flow deliver pressurised air to the engine, contributing to its greater output over the Turbo. Look closer and you can see visual evidence of the 145kg weight reduction over the Turbo; the standard-fit PCCB brakes, the new tilt-back carbon-shell seats, the lack of rear seats, and a rear silencer and tailpipes made of titanium. Out of sight, there"s a new aluminium rear suspension subframe and, of course, the weight penalty of four-wheel drive no longer applies.This left-hand drive, 997 911 GT2 was purchased new by a collector in Dubai on 8th October 2009. It remained there with one owner until 2015, when it was imported into the UK. All duties and taxes have been paid, the UK registration process was completed by the current owner in October 2015, and it now forms part of his significant private collection.Finished in sparkling Carrera White with a Black Alcantara and Leather interior, this desirable 997 GT2 has covered over 29,000 miles from new and the bodywork still presents superbly. It is fitted with a 'factory' interior carbon pack, rare carbon backed bucket seats, and the rear cage is designed to be easily removable. The black leather interior is consistent with the indicated mileage and the car is supplied with all its original books and manuals. Our vendor has entrusted the car to marque specialists JZM and Charles Ivey Ltd. in recent years and there are also invoices in the history file with Porsche Centre Swindon, from 2015, when they also carried out the 'Porsche 111 Point Check', and the report is available for inspection.997 GT2 models have traditionally held their value exceptionally well and are regarded as seriously collectable amongst Porsche fans worldwide. Given the results we"ve achieved for similar cars in our recent auctions, this GT2 looks a very attractive proposition.

1962 Porsche 356B Cabriolet

1962 Porsche 356B Cabriolet

Lot # 722 (Sale Order: 22 of 59)

Widely acknowledged as Porsche's first venture into motor manufacturing, the 356 was a lightweight and nimble rear engined, rear-wheel-drive, two-door sporting car available in hardtop coupeacute; and open configurations. Over a 15-year production period, the 356 evolved from a little, aluminium-bodied coupeacute; with an 1,100cc air-cooled flat-four engine into a sophisticated sports car with a 2,000cc four-cam Carrera engine producing 130 bhp.In September of 1959 Porsche revealed their fully updated 356, known as the 356B, with a completely revised body that was more suitable for the American market. The 'B' used the new T5 body style with a curved front bonnet lid, rounded wings compared to that of the 356A and new front and rear sheet metal. The bumpers were raised nearly four inches, over-riders added, and the headlights were also repositioned higher to comply with US-Federal regulations. The brakes were upgraded, larger door handles fitted, and inside Porsche fitted a new deep dish steering wheel and deeper front seats.In August of 1961 Porsche revealed the updated T6 body with larger windows for the Coupeacute; and twin engine grills on the rear deck. The T6 had a much revised front bonnet with a different petrol tank that was accessed under a filler cap on the wing instead of the middle of the boot. In 1963, the 356C marked the third and final update to the 356 model.This left-hand drive, 1962 Porsche 356 Cabriolet is finished in one of the sleekest colour combinations of Metallic Silver with a dark blue leather interior and blue hood. Delivered new to the United States, the car eventually made its way back to Europe. The body was subject to a restoration in 2006 and the paintwork today presents well, having been recently treated to a bare metal respray. The hood is in excellent condition and the interior a true delight, complete with the original Blaupunkt radio and clock. The engine is the correct type 616/1 but is not original to the car. There are a number of bills in the history file from Porsche Monaco and documentation confirms that the car had previously been UK registered.This 356 Cabriolet was serviced, tuned, the spark plugs changed, and supplied with 1 year's MoT in 2014. However, it has subsequently been maintained by Porsche specialists 'Flat 06' in Monaco and there is an invoice in the history file for euro;2,000 dated January 2017.As well as being sporty and lots of fun, this late built 'T6' Cabriolet is a perfect representation of the late fifties/early sixties period that is absolutely in fashion at the moment, and this little silver convertible would be welcome at any classic car event /rally/garden party or anywhere really and looks a very reasonable ownership proposition.

1962 Jaguar D-Type by Realm (RAM)

1962 Jaguar D-Type by Realm (RAM)

Lot # 723 (Sale Order: 23 of 59)

Realm Engineering of Honeybourne in Worcestershire has built up a fine reputation over almost four decades for its RAM recreations. In particular, their Jaguar D-types which benefitted from chassis design input by Reynard Racing resulting in greater strength and ultimately better road-holding. After a three-hour stint behind the wheel of a Realm D-Type Sir Jack Brabham commented: "That's a damn sight better than the original!" Richard Noble has one of his own, and Sir Stirling Moss OBE said: "You guys have done an excellent job here, you should be proud." Jaguar Quarterly magazine described the car as 'impressive' with handling 'beyond question' and 'a whole bucketload of fun'. This, short-nose example, of Jaguar's legendary Le Mans-winning D-Type Jaguar features steel-braced glass fibre bodywork with an aluminium passenger-carrying style tub with full-width windscreen first seen on the works cars at Le Mans in 1955. With almost exclusively Jaguar running gear, unlike some its rivals, the RAM is described as having: "undisputed mechanical integrity." The car retains a 1962 Jaguar identity and was believed to have been built around 1990 for a flight engineer. It was sold via Roger Taylor Classics in 2000 and again in 2003 to Nick Godfrey, who, at the time, was managing director of Alpina and worked closely with Frank Sytner. He was responsible for several significant upgrades including Ian Nuthall suspension and a Ray Mills 4.2-litre engine fed by three Weber 45 DCOE carburettors.Since then it has passed through a number of collections until purchased by our vendor last year. He has even campaigned the car at Prescott where it was described in the Bugatti Owners' Club magazine 'Bugantics' as "looks very period as it heads up towards Ettore's". The engine is reported to have 6,500 miles on it, bringing the car's total mileage to 9,968. Equally at home on long trips with the overdrive enabling relaxed cruising or sliding round a circuit, this ,D' is certainly a cut above the rest. With its correct Dunlop style Knock-Off wheels, short registration number (63 SYA), white racing number roundels, and gentle patina, the car is frequently mistaken for an original.The engine fires up on the button and runs extremely well even at tick-over. The exhaust note is modest at idle but clearly, makes all the right noises when ,on song'. In addition, the car is ageing very nicely indeed with the bodywork and interior displaying gentle use. Supplied with a UK registration certificate, some bills in the history file, and a current MoT Certificate valid until April 2018, we would suggest that the lucky new owner simply drives and enjoys this wonderful machine. Pre-sale inspections are welcome and prospective bidders should contact the office for further details. This Jaguar respectfully and elegantly pays homage to one of the greatest British sports cars of all time.

1966 Porsche 550 Spyder Evocation (Aluminium)

1966 Porsche 550 Spyder Evocation (Aluminium)

Lot # 724 (Sale Order: 24 of 59)

Inspired by the Porsche 356, the 550 Spyder put Porsche firmly on the map as a serious competitor on the world"s motor racing circuits. The diminutive mid-engined roadster with a 1500cc flat-four engine and a modest of 115bhp was light and handled superbly, soon gaining a reputation as a 'Giant Killer' for its ability to defeat much more powerful rivals. Introduced at the 1953 Paris Auto Show, the 550 and its second iteration, the 550A, remained in production until February of 1959, and a total of only 130 chassis were constructed before the 718 RSK Spyders appeared. A large proportion of 550 production was destined for the United States.The 550 will forever be associated with actor and budding racing driver James Dean. This association would be immortalised when, during September 1955, Dean was driving one of the first ninety 550 Spyders and fatally collided with Donald Turnupseed on his way to the Salinas Road Race. The 550 is among the most frequently reproduced classic cars, given its effortlessly pretty styling, its sublime driving dynamics and the prohibitive rarity and thus cost of an original example. The most sought-after homage cars are always hand-built out of aluminium, utilise a genuine Porsche engine and, where possible, have the look, feel and patina of the real thing. Combine this with the romantic image of the little silver Porsche being driven in the sun by a famous actor, and you are pretty damn close! This is all true of the car presented here.This car is something of an enigma. It was bought four years ago by our car-collecting UK vendor from the celebrated French Film and TV actor Arsene Jiroyan. During their shared correspondence in the build-up to the sale of the car (and at the lunch that followed in Cannes when our vendor clicheacute;d the deal!), Arsene spoke about the history, as he believed it, of his car. The car was supposedly built by Autotechnica (A.T.L.) in Mandello Del Lario on Lake Como, Italy in the early 1970s. Ercole Zuccoli founded the company in the late 1960s with production ceasing in 1976. The car"s aluminium bodywork is believed to have been crafted at A.T.L. by the talented 'artigiano' Giorgio Greppi, who subsequently set up ,Carrozzeria Greppi" with his brother in Colico on Lake Como in the early 1970s. The Greppi brothers went on the build a number of aluminium classic Italian replicas including nine examples of the legendary Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale using the Superleggera construction design used by Touring for 1950s/60s Maseratis and Aston Martins. A.T.L. and early Greppi cars are now collected as important cars in their own right. Arsene states in e-mails to our vendor that, in the early 1990s, he was invited to the famous Geacute;rier museum, established by the former racing driver, historian and car collector extraordinaire Serge Pozzoli to house his amazing vehicles. This visit may have coincided with an auction of cars held after the death of Pozzoli in 1992. Arsene viewed many cars in the main areas, but also some cars that were in storage behind the actual museum and weren"t for sale at this time. It was here he spotted this 550 Spyder, next to a Veritas BMW Barchetta. After many years of searching, Arsene rediscovered this same Spyder for sale and bought it. Since owning the car, Arsene has established that the car is mentioned in a book by Paul Fregrave;re. Arsene was also in contact with a man whose father was a mechanic at Le Mans and somehow knew of the 550 and confirms, in a hand-written letter, the A.T.L/Greppi and Pozzoli connections. All correspondence, e-mails, and this letter are included in the car"s history file. Confirmed by its engine number, the car utilises a genuine 1600 C (Type 616/15) Porsche engine, as used in 1964 Porsche 356s models (built in 1963), whilst its chassis number relates to a VW registered in 1966. After our vendor purchased the car and when it first arrived on in the UK, it was transported directly to classic Porsche specialists Roger Bray of Exeter, who have particular expertise with 356s. The car was given a thorough health check and service, to the tune of £2,500. Since then, it has been well maintained, always garaged and drives very well. It is UK-registered, with an MOT until May 2018 and wears the evocative registration ,515 AVO".There is a lot to like here, an intriguing car with an interesting history that may reward further research by its new owner. It turns heads like nothing else, with or without an actor behind the wheel!

1950 Healey Silverstone

1950 Healey Silverstone

Lot # 725 (Sale Order: 25 of 59)

The Donald Healey Motor Company completed its first car in 1945, going into full-time production the following year. The firm's first offering was a 2.4-litre, Riley-powered sports saloon with a strengthened chassis and Healey's own trailing arm independent front suspension.For the 'clubman racer', there was the dual purpose ,Silverstone', a model equally at home on road or track. Designed by Len Hodges, the lightweight two-seater body was crafted in aluminum, while the car's purposeful look was enhanced by cycle wings and closely spaced headlamps mounted behind the radiator grill. Another unusual feature was the spare wheel which protruded from its compartment in the tail, thus doubling as a bumper. "The Motor", when it announced and featured the model in July 1949, described the Silverstone as a " light ,competition type' two seater on offer at the basic price of £975".The Silverstone was soon making a name for itself in rallying and circuit racing. With Donald himself, together with co-driver Ian Appleyard, securing a second in class and second overall in the 1949 Alpine Rally, they were the highest placed British car. Other noteworthy international successes included Peter Riley and Bill Lamb's class win in the 1951 Liegrave;ge-Rome-Liegrave;ge Rally, Peter Simpson's 6th place overall in the 1951 Isle of Man Manx Cup Races and Edgar Wadsworth and Cyril Corbishley's victory in the 1951 Coupe des Alpes.Many future stars gained their first track experience in the Silverstone, most notably Tony Brooks.There were two generations of Silverstone's, designated ,D-Types' and ,E-Types', in addition to two prototype "X" models. The D-Type had a front anti-roll bar and stiffer springs and retained the Riley 2.5 litre power-plant and rear axle. An updated E-Type, with a wider body and more comfortable cockpit, was introduced in 1950.This 1950 Healey Silverstone, chassis number E64, was first registered on 17th July 1950 with the number plate NUG 918. The original buff log book declares the engine number as B4520, which is stamped on the ,Big Four' Riley engine today. In addition, there are tax stamps showing early use from 1950-1955.In 1966 the ,Silverstone' was purchased by a Mr P. Jackson and sold again in 1969 to a Mr J.R. Thompson of Northamptonshire for £600. It remained in the county with Mr Thompson in dry storage until 1998, when the current family owners, themselves mechanical engineers, discovered the car in need of restoration. They quickly set about a complete rebuild and nearly all parts were taken off, repaired and restored back to original specification. The body was separated from the chassis and both chassis and aluminium body were repaired as required.NUG 918 was finally finished in 2003. It has been used sparingly since and is now reading just 10,501 miles, which the family owners believe are genuine miles based on the condition of the vehicle when they purchased it. This mileage cannot be substantiated with paperwork but a previous MoT certificate from 1986 does show the odometer reading at 5,000 miles. Prior to the auction, the vehicle will be serviced and spanner checked. We welcome pre-sale inspections and encourage prospective bidders to contact the office for further details.The Healey Silverstone was a model known for its superior power-to-weight ratio, offering fantastic handling and performance from a car which was a true ,giant killer' in the early 1950s. NUG 918 retains a wonderful road presence today and is extremely rare, as 1 of just 105 cars ever built. Silverstone Auctions are delighted to be offering this stunning British sports car at the Silverstone Classic, an event and location that perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the Healey Silverstone.
