2000 Bentley Arnage Red Label

2000 Bentley Arnage Red Label

Lot # 301 (Sale Order: 1 of 77)

The Bentley Arnage was launched in 1998, replacing the Bentley 'Turbo' which had offered sterling service for many years. Built by Bentley Motors in Crewe, from 1998 to 2009, the Arnage and its Rolls-Royce sibling, the Silver Seraph, were introduced in the Spring of 1998 and were the first entirely new designs for the two marques since 1980 when the Silver Spirit and Mulsanne models had been introduced. The new Arnage was designed to be powered by a new state-of-the-art BMW V8 engine with Cosworth-engineered twin-turbochargers and was designated the Arnage 'Green Label'. The Arnage 'Red Label' was launched in October 1999, and for a number of reasons, reverted back to Bentley power using the traditional V8 engine with a displacement of 6,750cc. We 're pleased to offer this beautiful Arnage Red Label from the year 2000 in the unusual colour combination of Silver Tempest, a businesslike and purposeful exterior if ever there was one, with a fabulously indulgent interior in Cream and Mulberry.These commanding cars offer an unprecedented level of comfort and effortlessly cover the miles in the most comfortable of settings, turning every journey into an occasion. This luxurious carriage has covered just 67,000 miles, ageing gracefully throughout, and appears to have been particularly well cared for.

The central locking is not working, the sunroof is a little temperamental and the air conditioning lacks a bit of 'oomph', not major problems in the scheme of things, and otherwise, the car is really very good. A service would bring the records up to date and the car is in possession of a current MoT until August 2017. Should you ever be stranded, the distinctive registration number, M999HLP, would surely bring immediate assistance.Our vendor has opted to offer this stylish Bentley at 'No Reserve' and this may well prove to be the bargain of the day!

1973 Porsche 911 'T'

1973 Porsche 911 'T'

Lot # 302 (Sale Order: 2 of 77)

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. Finished in its original colour of Sepia Brown, this 1973 911 ‘T ' with CIS injection was imported from the USA in 2013 by our vendor to join his significant private collection. We are informed this car only had one owner whilst in the USA before joining our vendor 's collection and the car is now UK registered.Accompanying the vehicle is the original Bill of Sale, which details options fitted to the car when ordered new. A handbook is also present, along with the original manual for the optional Blaupunkt radio fitted from new, and a Porsche 'Certificate of Authenticity'. There is also a large history file with the car and workshop manuals containing details of any work carried out over the years, mostly handwritten by the original owner covering the issue, parts used and the solution. There are also some records detailing fuel consumption on various journeys over the years, perhaps showing just how fastidious the previous owner was. The car still retains its 'US-Spec' over riders, front and rear and the 'S' trim, which we are informed was optioned from the factory. Whilst there have been little bits of paintwork over the years the car looks to be in good overall condition. The interior is reported to be in good order throughout and looks to be broadly original. Sensibly guided, this is a fantastic proposition for an astute buyer.

1978 Jaguar XJC V12

1978 Jaguar XJC V12

Lot # 303 (Sale Order: 3 of 77)

The Coupé incarnation of Jaguar's ground-breaking XJ saloon didn't peek from showrooms until 1975, although it had been announced publicly rather earlier, back at the 1973 London Show. Its original design dated from even earlier still as it was developed alongside the original Series 1 XJ back in the late 60s and in fact the company even issued project numbers for the Series 1 Coupés- XJ33 for the six-cylinder and XJ34 for the V12- although they were destined never to be produced. Instead, the car was launched in Series 2 form known as XJ35 and XJ36 respectively. However, a combination of Sir William Lyons' frequent tweaking of the design and engineering 'issues' with the roof panel and side windows, meant that it was early 1975 before the first XJ-Cs would glide stylishly out of Jaguar Showrooms.The Coupé was based on the short wheelbase version of the XJ and offered in 4.2 and 5.3 engine sizes known as either the 'Sovereign' from Jaguar or the 'Double Six' from Daimler. In 1978, just 329 Jaguar XJ12 5.3 Coupés were built by the factory making this particular car a very rare production model. In fact, only 1,800 were ever made by the factory in total. PEJ 44S was first registered on the 8th of March, 1978 and was purchased from British Leyland dealers, Meirion Motors of Aberystwyth by a Mr. J March from Bridgnorth. It was finished in the lovely colour combination of Squadron Blue with a Mid-Blue velour interior. The car is accompanied by its original 'Passport to Service' which shows regular visits to the main dealer with ten stamps in the book culminating with the entry on 2/03/88 indicating that it was serviced at 51,923 miles. On 15/06/88, after 10 years of sterling service, the car was sold to John McGee of Braintree who was to own it until February 2016, when it was acquired by its current keeper. There is an invoice in the file from November 2016 listing a number of minor items that were attended to in order to bring the car up to scratch. These included, work on the radio and aerial, track-rod gaiters, door seals, attending to minor leaks, rectifying the horn, work to the exhaust, and some external detailing, badges etc.These Coupés are elegant motor cars and PEJ 44S is no exception. The paintwork looks generally good with a little attention required here and there, and the chrome and brightwork look excellent. The car is fitted with a sporty, leather-rim, Moto-Lita steering wheel and a period Sharp cassette player and the interior looks comfortable and in good order. The engine bay on these V12 cars can be a bit of a nightmare, however, this one looks particularly tidy and well cared for. The book pack contains the original service records, sundry invoices, manuals(including radio), and a spare key.This is a presentable and usable XJ12C in a very attractive colour, and with these rare coupés continuing to perform well in the collector's market, this handsome example merits serious consideration.

1988 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Sport Coupé

1988 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Sport Coupé

Lot # 304 (Sale Order: 4 of 77)

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 231 bhp - enough to propel the lithe and slippery coupé to over 150 mph, with 0-60 mph coming up in 5.6 seconds. Cars built from September 1986 onwards were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 'Getrag' gearbox, but 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 (C16), right-hand drive 1988 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Sport Coupé. This matching-numbers example has been with its current owner since 2005 and was bought from a Porsche Club GB member. It comes with an impressive history file containing an original and fully stamped-up service book plus 16 MoT certificates which help verify a current mileage of 104,000 miles. Reassuringly, amongst a wealth of invoices for servicing and maintenance, there is one for a top-engine re-build and clutch replacement from March 2015 (at 101,309 miles) carried out by a former Porsche technician at a cost of £5,659.23.The car was delivered new on the 2nd August 1988 via Merlin Porsche of Chesterfield to a Sheffield-based customer. The car was taken back to their workshops for servicing at the correct intervals from 1,275 miles to 31,461 miles and later at Merlin Porsche of Cardiff up to 61,464 miles. The further 15 stamps in the book are from a local firm where our vendor entrusted a former Porsche-trained technician to work on his beloved car.This lovely Porsche is finished in the rare paint colour of Metallic Blue Marine (35V), complemented by a full cream leather interior and is a standard factory 'Sport' model with Fuchs alloy wheels, front and rear spoilers, electric pack and a sunroof. Special-order elements include Sport seats (383 & 387) and Sport shock-absorbers (474).This car has obviously been well-maintained and presents, both mechanically and cosmetically, in very good condition. Rarely do we see these true classic 1980's 911s in such honest condition. Small details like two sets of keys, factory stickers still in situ, an original sales brochure and a complete Porsche tool-roll / jack help support this dutiful ownership. This is a simply lovely genuine example of one of the most popular and sought-after Porsche models.

1973 Triumph TR6 PI

1973 Triumph TR6 PI

Lot # 305 (Sale Order: 5 of 77)

Many saw the TR6 as the last of a breed of hairy-chested British sports cars, more than 94,000 TR6s were built, ninety per cent of them to US specification.This Triumph TR6 is an original UK right-hand drive car supplied new on 4th February 1973 through Wadham Stringer Ltd of Portsmouth and finished in New White with a black interior. Factory fitted equipment at that time included overdrive, a heater and seatbelts. The majority of the history of the car is unknown, however in 2013, it was purchased by a British ex-pat living in France by the name of Mr Andrew Clemmit, who embarked on a total restoration of the vehicle which was completed in 2015.A photographic record of the restoration shows the body was separated from the chassis and all rust and rot replaced where necessary and new panels sought. The chassis was reinforced and wax oiled and polyurethane bushes fitted before the suspension was reassembled utilising Koni shock absorbers on the rear. The engine was rebuilt with new bearings, pistons and piston rings and a desireable unleaded cylinder head fitted with the unit married up to a J-type overdrive gearbox. A new stainless steel sports exhaust with the recognisable twin-tailpipes ensures this car has that TR6 burble.A new wiring loom was fitted along with a heater matrix, new carpets, retrimmed seats and a new mohair hood and hood cover ensuring that all occupants remain warm and dry in this British classic. The car is now riding on Minilite-style wheels, giving it a more aggressive stance.Accompanying the car is a folder full of bills for many of the parts ordered, predominantly from well-respected supplier Moss. A UK V5c and an MOT until 29th August 2017 are present, along with a book showing photographs of the car during its restoration. All the hard graft has been done and the result is simply beautiful. You would struggle to find another home-market TR6 in this condition and we urge you to snap this one up right in time for summer classic motoring.

1989 Ferrari 328 GTS

1989 Ferrari 328 GTS

Lot # 306 (Sale Order: 6 of 77)

Produced between 1985 and 1989, the 328 was the successor to the 308 and was available as a coupe (GTB) or a Targa Top (GTS). It featured the transverse V8 from the 308, albeit now in 3.2 form, with 4 valves per cylinder, a five-speed gearbox and 275 bhp on tap. This resulted in 0-60mph in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of over 166mph.This car is an original, right-hand drive, 1989 model which was supplied new to the UK and has covered just 5,600 miles. Whilst not completely substantiated, there are some previous MoT certificates from 1994 to 2003 that help support the current mileage, along with a condition report from marque specialists Terry Keys Motorsport.The second keeper was a Mr. Stuart Duncan Williams of SDW Services in Dorking. He acquired the car from its first owner in March 1990 and the current lady owner purchased this 328 on 26th March 1994, with a mileage reading of 4,300 miles. Since then, it has been stored in a heated garage and has covered nominal miles since. The vendor states that it's had regular oil and fluid changes during her ownership.

2009 Porsche Boxster 'RS60'

2009 Porsche Boxster 'RS60'

Lot # 307 (Sale Order: 7 of 77)

The first-generation Porsche Boxster (the 986) was introduced in late 1996 and the design was obviously heavily influenced by the 1993 'Boxster Concept' design exercise. Interestingly, the Boxster was Porsche's first road car to be originally designed as a 'roadster' since the 550 Spyder in the fifties. In November 2007, Porsche announced a Limited Edition Boxster RS60 Spyder to commemorate the company's legendary win in the 1960 12 Hours of Sebring when Hans Hermann and Olivier Gendebien, in their silver 718 RS60 Spyder, took on and defeated much larger and more powerful competition. The RS 60 was designed to pay homage to the 1960 Sebring car and they were finished in an exclusive GT Silver Metallic with a Carrera Red interior. It was fitted with stainless steel door entry guards, a bespoke gear lever, and special surface texture in the centre sections of the sports seats, the centre door linings as well as on the steering wheel rim and handbrake lever. The instrument cluster cover was removed, prominently displaying the GT Silver Metallic instruments which had been set wider apart and the interior was nicely set off by a silver centre console and silver seat belts. Modifications to the exhaust flow coupled with a dual tailpipe sports exhaust system increased engine output to 303 bhp. Externally, the RS60 differed slightly with a wider stance on its Porsche Sport Design wheels, a black windscreen frame and red tail light lenses. Only 1,960 units in this series were produced worldwide with each model bearing a numbered production badge. This, UK right-hand drive, limited edition, Porsche Boxster RS60 has only covered 14,000 miles in the hands of its four owners since being delivered in 2009. Our vendor informs us that it has been maintained primarily by Porsche main dealers until 2015 and subsequently, under his ownership, has been looked after by established Porsche specialists Zentrum, in Nottinghamshire. Supplied with an MOT until November 2017, this is a fine example of a rare model. At this mileage, it's barely been run in and offers many more miles of fun in the sun.

1985 Ferrari 308 GTS QV

1985 Ferrari 308 GTS QV

Lot # 308 (Sale Order: 8 of 77)

Only 233 right-hand drive, GTS 'QV' models were produced and they are considered by many to be the most desirable of all the 308 variations. They are certainly the fastest and arguably more subtly styled with a deep front valance, racing mirrors, and short lightweight bumpers.This 308 GTS QV was delivered new to Maranello Concessionaires, Surrey on 8th March 1985 and was ordered in the rare colour combination of Metallic Blue Chiaro with a white leather interior piped in blue. Factory options included a deep front spoiler and air conditioning. However, its first owner was rather disappointed in the Ferrari's power output. The somewhat unorthodox solution was for Nigel Hudson, then at Nigel Mansell's Ferrari main dealership network Emblem Sports Cars, to engineer and squeeze a brand-new Ferrari 400 series V12 engine into the bay. This work was carried out to a very high standard and was completed in the late 1980s.The results are quite astonishing. The 4.8 Litre, 4-cam, Ferrari V12 is known affectionately as ‘Nigel's Flyer' and must be seen to be fully appreciated. This example is one of just four known 308s worldwide that boast a V12 Ferrari engine.The current owner found the car in 2013, following a 10-year stint in dry-storage, and he entrusted it to the very man that originally converted it. Nigel Hudson, now under his own name, began a two-year, no expense spared, re-commissioning. The engine, gearbox, brakes and suspension were all taken apart and inspected by Nigel. New parts were fitted where necessary and according to the vendor, "the car drives beautifully." The leather interior and carpets were left original and unrestored.The finished product is something very special indeed. Included in the sale are the original books, manuals, unused jack, tool kit and a decent history file. There are 8 revious MoT certificates, 6 stamps in the service book and bills and receipts from Nigel Hudson for all recent works.Silverstone Auctions always enjoy a car that represents something slightly different or left field. This 308 V12 offers its next owner exclusivity, classic 80s styling, and lots of power. We welcome pre-sale inspections and encourage prospective bidders to contact the office for further details.

1961 Porsche 356B Cabriolet

1961 Porsche 356B Cabriolet

Lot # 309 (Sale Order: 9 of 77)

The 356 is acknowledged as Porsche's first venture into production and was a lightweight and nimble rear engined, rear-wheel-drive, two-door sporting car available in hardtop coupé and open configurations. Engineering and design innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and its popularity as a road car.The model was created by Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche (son of Dr. Ing. Ferdinand Porsche, founder of the company), based on an original design by Porsche employee Erwin Komenda, and initially its mechanicals (including engine, suspension, and chassis) were derived from the basic Volkswagen Beetle, a product of his Father's fertile imagination.Porsche continued to develop and refine the 356 with a focus on performance, and by the late 1950s fewer parts were shared with its pedestrian cousin, and increasing success in competition and its availability worldwide resulted in the distinctive little car, in all its iterations, finding over 76,000 homes between 1948 and 1966. Today, the Porsche 356 is a highly regarded collector's car.Having never been publically offered in its 56 years, we are delighted to be able to bring to market for the first time ever, this original right-hand drive 1961 Porsche 356B T5 Cabriolet. According to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity that accompanies the file, Chassis #155510 was ordered through Porsche Schultz, Dusseldorf and was finished in Light Ivory with a red leather interior. This car was ordered by, and first registered to, a G. A. Sinsteden on 3rd August 1961 as shown in the original German vehicle registration document - the 'Kraftfahrzeugbrief', which is included in the sale.Soon after taking delivery of chassis #155510, Mr Sinsteden wanted to move to Ireland and reside in Dublin, and so his friend, a Mr Joseph Kiernan, a well-respected solicitor in his own right, was called upon to help facilitate the move. Between them, the pair agreed that if a suitable residence was found, that this Porsche would be taken as payment to Mr Kiernan for taking care of his friend's legal affairs. A residence in the affluent area of Killiney, Dublin in was finally bought and so the keys to this 356B cabriolet were handed over to Mr Kiernan in 1965, although a letter in the file from 1974 shows the sale officially being completed in the August of that year.Mr Kiernan was to keep the car until his untimely passing, after which time ownership transferred to his wife who appears in the 'buff' log book in August 1986. A move to the Canary Islands in Spain in 1988 for Mrs Kiernan meant that the car would go on to spend the next 12 years of its life in a very dry climate with minimal use, partially explaining its current condition.In 2000 our vendor, the son of Mr Joseph Kiernan, purchased the car from his mother and it was brought back to its spiritual home in Dublin in December of that year. A dealer principal at a BMW main dealership at that time, our vendor was able to recommission the car using his workshop team and many parts ordered from Porsche specialist Roger Bray, for which there are numerous invoices in the file. Later that year it was decided that the car would benefit from a respray, so the glass and brightwork were taken off the car, but crucially it was never fully dismantled. At the same time, the outer roof mohair covering was carefully replaced, ensuring that the original inner lining could be used once again.In the current ownership, the car has been maintained by our vendor himself, who has changed the oil annually regardless of mileage along with any other jobs that have been required. Chassis #155510 has been dry stored in an inflatable car cover inside a dry garage to continue the preservation of what is a lovely example. Sitting in the cockpit, one gets a true sense of originality, as the red leather seats show super patina, and the steering wheel and dashboard instruments all look to be in great condition. This car is supplied with its original book pack containing driver's manuals in German & English, an operating manual and a hardtop/cabriolet manual. Along with the history file are also 3 Porsche catalogues of spares parts. This car will arrive at the auction with a NOVA reference number, but will need an MoT before applying for a UK V5c.Rarely do cars with such provenance come to market, especially ones that have been with the same family for the last 52 years. We are proud to offer this beautiful 356B cabriolet which is now ready to start the next chapter of its life.

1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster

1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster

Lot # 310 (Sale Order: 10 of 77)

With Jaguar's racing pedigree with the 'C' and 'D' types from the 1950s still fresh in people's memories it's no wonder that the new 'E'-Type captured the hearts and minds of everyone at its launch, and if all E-Types aged as gracefully as the car offered here then it's easy to understand why that affection continues today. Built in 1965, this Series I car is fitted with the 4.2-litre powerplant, often considered the best engine. For the 4.2, Jaguar introduced their own all-synchromesh gearbox, derived from the occasionally recalcitrant Moss offering, along with more comfortable seating and improved brakes. This gorgeous original, right-hand drive, 4.2 Series I was first registered on 22nd July 1965 to a Mr R Lowther-Fry. Since then, the car has changed hands just five times in its 52-year life. Our vendor purchased the car 26 years ago in 1991 and since that first day and after a rather hairy drive back from collecting the car due to poorly working brakes, the same local Classic Car specialist has maintained GRA 900C until the present day with the proprietor overseeing all work undertaken on the car. Over the following 26 years, the car has been meticulously maintained regardless of cost to ensure that it remains in fine running order. This has included a gearbox rebuild in 2001 at a cost of £2,900 the result of a broken bearing whilst on a European tour. Bodywork has also been attended to where needed over the years as can been seen by bills such as the one in 2002 for rear half bodywork repairs including work to the inner and external wings at a cost of £4,700.Presented with the car is a wealth of history including an impressive number of invoices from the past 26 years of ownership all from the same local specialist of course. Also present is the original Buff Logbook, the very rare original Service book/Service policy (with stamps), the original Operating/Maintenance handbook, and a number of old MoTs, the earliest of which dates to 1972.From looking at key documentation in the history file we can see that the car still retains its original engine and matching cylinder head and remains finished in its original shade of Jaguar Indigo Blue.An absolutely honest example with a lovely history and a rare find in this day and age when every Series 1 seems to have been restored to within an inch of its life. This cracking '65 4.2 has been frequently enjoyed and lovingly maintained and cared for by the same owner for 26 years. Refreshing.

1991 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet

1991 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet

Lot # 311 (Sale Order: 11 of 77)

In 1989 the second series of the 944 was introduced, powered by a 210 bhp normally aspirated, double-overhead-cam 16-valve 3.0-litre version of the 944S engine, which was the largest four-cylinder engine in production at the time. The 944S2 also benefited from a revised transmission and the gearing was tweaked to better suit the torque and peak power characteristics of the 3.0 L M44/41 powerplant.The S2 had the same rounded nose and a rear valance found on the 944 Turbo model and this was the first example of the use of an integrated front bumper, where the bumper and bonnet profiles would merge smoothly with the valance, a design feature that has only now seen widespread adoption on production cars from the early nineties. In 1989, Porsche released the 944 S2 Cabriolet, a first for the 944 line that featured a cabriolet body built by the ASC-American Sunroof Company at Weinsberg in Germany, creating a very good looking car with excellent dynamic qualities that was rewarding to drive and was well received by the motoring press.This 19,000 mile, 944 S2 Cabriolet has enjoyed the sunshine with three previous owners who were obviously fastidious and caring, as is evident from the car's proud stance and impressive appearance. We are informed it has always been garaged and maintained to the highest standards. The car's history file contains some relevant records and invoices in its leather wallet, including the service manuals and records, and previous MoTs. Our vendor has recently spent around £1,500 to ensure this lovely 944 S2 Cab is ready for some summer fun and a fresh MoT will be issued before the sale. Built in the last year of 944 production, there can't be many 944 Cabriolets with mileage as low as this. The car positively shouts "Buy me" with its gleaming Crystal Silver Metallic paintwork, unmarked midnight blue interior and hood, and its smartly polished alloys. Inevitably, as the prices of good 911s creep ever higher, 944s, 928s, and 968's will surely follow, so now may be as good a time as any to join the party.

1993 Ferrari 348 Spider

1993 Ferrari 348 Spider

Lot # 312 (Sale Order: 12 of 77)

Introduced in 1989 as a replacement for the 328, the 348 production line ran until 1995, when the 355 was introduced. Late in 1993, after 3 years of production, the 348 was revised with subtle styling changes and a power increase from 300 to 320bhp from its 3.4-litre V8. At the same time, the suspension geometry was revised, vastly improving both the handling and ride quality, particularly when coupled with the factory chassis developments. This enhanced rigidity was instrumental in the introduction of the brand new Spider version.This car is one of only 75 Spiders that were manufactured in right-hand drive for the UK market. It has enjoyed a thorough programme of full annual maintenance whilst covering very limited annual mileage. L150 MEP has resided with its current owner for the last four years as part of a private collection and has been thoroughly pampered during his ownership. Having covered a mere 27,800 miles in its 23 years, this 348 has obviously been lightly used, however, it has been maintained to a very high standard during this time, including 10 full services and 6 belt changes. The current owner is a highly skilled engineer and has undertaken and documented at least two belt changes, the most recent being in the last two months in readiness for a sale. Accompanied by every MOT Certificate from new, all of its original book packs and leather-bound toolkit, this low mileage, UK right-hand drive, Spider must surely be a really good buy, particularly with only 75 ever produced and even fewer in Ferrari Yellow.

1976 Porsche 911 2.7 'S'

1976 Porsche 911 2.7 'S'

Lot # 313 (Sale Order: 13 of 77)

Since its introduction, the story of the Porsche 911 has been punctuated with iconic and benchmark cars. The arrival of the '911S 2.4' in 1972 set new standards but, perhaps the 2.7RS from 1973 remains their greatest seventies achievement. As is the way of things, it was only natural that cubic capacity for mainstream production cars would continue to increase, and the 2,687cc swept volume in the 2.7S resulted in 150 bhp and a worthwhile increase in torque. Impact bumpers were now required to satisfy American law and production ran from 1974 to 1977.Finished in Platinum Metallic with Brown leather trim, this rare, left-hand drive, 1977 2.7S 'narrow body' is showing 174,000 miles and still sports its original stickers in the door shuts, and other features dating back to 1977. The exterior looks to be presentable for the mileage, with a few small dents and a ripple on the rear quarter and the interior is 'lived in' and presents as you might expect considering the car's age and mileage. Our vendor informs is that, in his opinion, the engine appears to be original and the gearbox looks to be correct. The unit in the car is certainly magnesium cased which is correct for a 1977 2.7S, but we can 't confirm if these are the original units. The 15” Fuchs alloys are correctly dated for the car, and could well be original and the vendor has recently fitted new bushes. We understand that the underneath of the car looks good and is still wearing its original 'Stoneguard' throughout. Given the above, this 1977 'S' has been sensibly guided, however, it is an attractive car in a great colour and would make an excellent entry into the world of 911 ownership.

1989 Porsche 911 Speedster

1989 Porsche 911 Speedster

Lot # 314 (Sale Order: 14 of 77)

The 911 "Speedster" was first produced in 1989 by Porsche to reflect the timeless design of their original 356 Speedster from the late 1950's. Design cues included the instantly recognisable raked aluminium windscreen, 3 inches lower than the standard car, combined with the 'double hump' clamshell fibreglass tonneau cover.The model was based upon the 3.2 Carrera with its later G50 gearbox, 911Turbo wide body and chassis, upgraded Turbo-spec brakes and suspension, combined with the normally aspirated 3.2, flat-6 Carrera engine producing 231bhp. This resulted in an outstanding driving experience which was limited to the 139 right-hand drive, Turbo-bodied Speedsters ever produced.This factory right-hand drive car was delivered in July 1989 by Porsche Cars Australia to a Mr.Victor Berk, of New South Wales, who is its one and only private registered keeper from new. It remains today in its original specification of Black (colour code A1V9) with black leather upholstery and a black hood.It was factory fitted from new with the 'Super Sport' equipment option, alarm system, and the luggage compartment trimmed in black velour. The comprehensive history file includes everything from the original dealer order form, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity (GB), an introduction letter from Porsche Australia to Mr. Berk, every "inspection report" (Australian MOT) carried out by the supplying dealer in New South Wales from new until June 2014, the original Porsche leather wallet and book pack with spare keys, and even the demo cassette for the Blaupunkt audio system!In June 2014, Porsche Centre Sydney carried out a full dealer inspection report, including a compression test and full service, prior to the car's export to the UK. The report concludes a completely clean bill of health with no warnings or faults at a mileage in June 2014 of 8,718 Kms. Today it has covered just 8,997 Kms, which is 5,590 miles from new. The service book shows 21 main dealer services from new carried out on time, irrespective of mileage covered. The mileage is therefore warranted and the paintwork and interior condition remain exceptional and flawless throughout.A 'triple black' wide-bodied, right-hand drive Speedster is a rare thing of great beauty and in this condition, an exceptional find that is highly collectable. Silverstone Auctions are very proud to offer it for public auction for the first time in the car's life.

1970 Jaguar E-Type 2+2

1970 Jaguar E-Type 2+2

Lot # 315 (Sale Order: 15 of 77)

When launched to an eager public in 1961, the new E-Type Jaguar was available in either Open Two Seater (OTS) or two-seat Fixed Head Coupé (FHC) formats, the latter having a useful opening rear door giving access to the ample luggage compartment. By the mid-1960s, the high demand for the car prompted Jaguar to offer a third option, for the driver with a young family, in the form of a 2+2 coupé. By adding nine inches to the wheelbase and two inches in height, it was then possible to fit a rear seat capable of seating two adults in tolerable comfort and perfect for children. The longer wheelbase also had the added benefit of allowing Jaguar to mate a Borg-Warner automatic transmission to the 4.2-litre engine, thereby further widening the appeal of the E-type.The Jaguar E-type Plus 2 on offer here is a 4.2 Litre, right-hand drive, Series ll with an automatic gearbox and chrome wire wheels. Its accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate states that it was finished on 22 June 1970 and supplied by Henlys of London on 14th July 1970 to Harrison Gloucester Ltd in Horsforth finished in Indigo blue with a Dark Blue interior.The car comes with some decent history and there are three ring-binders full of information about its past including many MoTs going back to 1980, and dozens of older invoices for maintenance and servicing. We note from the file that the car had been stripped and fully painted some years ago and at some point had been 'Polybushed ' and fitted with a 'sports' exhaust manifold.The somewhat more 'vertical' appearance of the Plus 2 is made less noticeable in darker colours and the deep blue hue on this car makes it look almost svelte. The interior is wonderfully patinated, not scruffy, just lived-in.With a fresh MoT and cosmetically sound this would be a good base for a new buyer to take it a bit further, however, it is currently a good looking, solid, usable classic, and it is an E-Type.

1990 Ferrari Testarossa

1990 Ferrari Testarossa

Lot # 316 (Sale Order: 16 of 77)

When Ferrari introduced the Testarossa in Paris in 1984, it was regarded by many as possibly the best car they had ever built but, whilst the design was spectacular, it was not considered to be as sensually beautiful as some of the gorgeous GT Ferraris of the past. As a complete departure, Pininfarina had designed a modern, aerodynamic and efficient body shape, immediately recognisable by its very distinctive side 'strakes' unlike anything else seen in the post-war period. Housing a 4.9-litre V12 engine producing 390bhp, the car was capable of a respectable 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 196mph. Produced between 1984 and 1991, some 7,177 Testarossas were made in total. Once again, time showed Pininfarina's innovative design to be durable, and throughout the eighties, the distinctive 'strakes' were echoed in other design disciplines from cars to kettles. However, although the design may have seemed to be 'of the moment', the Testarossa proved itself to be a well-built car, and despite its 'Eiger-rivaling' list price, turned out to be Ferrari's most successful model ever. Signed off on the 22nd of December 1990 and first registered on the 15th of January 1991, this left-hand drive, European market, Testarossa appears to have spent much of its life in Northern France. In July 2015, CQ-667-QL was purchased by our vendor from Michel Ballario through 'SB Autos' in Villeneuve-Loubet in the South of France. It was imported to the UK and submitted for a pre-registration MoT on 6/08/2015 with the odometer indicating 48,841km. UK Registration was agreed on 16/09/2015 with the registration number H162 HEJ being allocated. Shortly afterwards, it was sent to Ferrari specialists, 'Autofficina' in Epsom for a full assessment and they were subsequently instructed to go through the car completely.From their detailed invoice, it would appear that they were extremely thorough. They carried out a major, engine-out service with all the belts, filters and gaskets replaced and fresh fluids throughout. The radiators were repaired, central locking and electric mirrors serviced, all the lighting tested and made UK-legal, all wiring checked with fresh connectors where appropriate, the cam covers repainted and the engine bay tidied and steam-cleaned. The dashboard had presumably suffered from the effects of too much Mediterranean sun, so it was removed, re-trimmed in black leather, reassembled and refitted. Further detailing was carried out and the final account was over £8,800. The sparkling Testarossa was returned to our delighted vendor in the middle of December 2015 with the odometer still indicating 48, 841km, and with the reading currently at 49,109km, it would suggest that the car has been very lightly used in recent months.The invoice from Autofficina is in the leather book pack alongside various French Bills of Sale, export documents, correspondence with the DVLA, the UK V5C, a spare set of keys and the original Warranty Card and Service Book. The service record appears comprehensive, and is stamped at 9,709, 20,541, 30,598, 37,935, 42,283 and finally 48,841kms (30,525 miles). Finished in classic Rosso Corsa with a Nero interior and contrasting Red carpets, H162 HEJ appears to be in fabulous condition throughout having only covered a few miles since being serviced and detailed. The 'icing on the cake' is almost certainly the full set of bespoke Ferrari fitted luggage complete with slip covers, a rather expensive option at the time.The Testarossa offers a rare package of serious performance, practicality, and reasonable comfort, and its confidence-inspiring handling at high speed becomes almost addictive. We welcome any inspection of this lovely Ferrari.

1985 Ford Capri 2.0 Laser - 4,500 miles

1985 Ford Capri 2.0 Laser - 4,500 miles

Lot # 317 (Sale Order: 17 of 77)

The Ford Capri is a fastback coupé that was built by Ford Motor Company from 1969 until 1986. The inspiration came from Ford of America's phenomenally successful Mustang, and Ford of Europe were naturally keen to replicate that success on this side of the pond. The resultant new coupé was actually designed by American Philip T. Clark, known for his design input into the Mustang.This UK-supplied, right-hand drive car was purchased new from Ford main dealer W.H.Perry Ltd. in North Finchley. The car had been ordered in Early 1985 but the purchaser, who was retired, postponed delivery until the new 'C' prefix registration was issued on 1st August.It had never been the intention of the car's owner that it should be put to daily use. He had been a Ford enthusiast and had finally realised his dreams of buying a Capri. The car was cherished and although used infrequently, never missed its annual service. Each service was dutifully stamped by the dealer confirming its very low annual mileage. By 1997, the car had covered a total of just 3,695 miles, at which time its ageing owner had been taken ill. Shortly afterwards, the Capri was laid-up and stored until 2006 when it was driven again but only covered minimal mileage until 2009, bringing the total to just over 4,000 when its owner passed away. The Capri was then driven from London to his daughter, where it remained until very recently. This is, without doubt, one of the finest Capris we have seen in recent years and is a must for any Ford collector.

1974 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster

1974 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster

Lot # 318 (Sale Order: 18 of 77)

We are pleased to offer this original right-hand drive UK-supplied 1974 E-type Series III roadster. Dispatched on 14th February 1974 through Evans Cutler of Plymouth, the car was finished in Signal Red with a Black leather interior and featured a manual gearbox. Issued with Plymouth registration plate 'XCO 777M', the first owner was a Mr B. E. Harris of the Alpine Hotel, Torquay. He kept the car until June 1975 when it was sold to a Mr H. Woofenden of Salcombe. In 1977 a Mr Edward Walker took ownership and was to keep it for a further 4 years before 'XCO' was bought by a Mr Martin Kettle of Crewe as a present to his son. Unfortunately, the car was laid up until 1991 before it was acquired in the summer of 1992 by a Mr A. Brooker of Warwickshire.The history file is a delight, with invoices dating back to 1977 at which point the car was maintained by the Jaguar distributor, Byatts of Fenton Ltd, Stoke-On-Trent, along with a host of other bills from a specialist. There is an invoice for the black Jaguar hardtop supplied by Charles Clark at a cost of £370. In August 1980, when the car had covered only 32,403 miles, the speedometer was returned to Smiths Gauges to be rebuilt, at which point it was reset. Now showing 4,610 miles, we believe the total mileage of just over 37,000 miles from new to be correct corroborated by 26 previous MOT certificates starting with 1977 and finishing in 2013.A bill for £5,400 from Alscot Garage in 1998 shows the engine and gearbox were removed, split and cleaned before a new clutch was fitted. Other work carried out at the time included; a new steering rack, brake calipers overhauled and the rear subframe dismantled, cleaned and repainted, along with a host of other remedial work. Most recently, the car has been through the workshop and a fresh MOT will be obtained ahead of the sale.The car is supplied with a UK V5c, its original Jaguar wallet containing its operating, maintenance and service handbook, a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, the original wheel nut spanner and mallet. This low mileage Series III, equipped with hardtop, is an incredibly rare find and we urge you to come and view this car before original home-market cars such as this one become even more scarce.

1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4

1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4

Lot # 319 (Sale Order: 19 of 77)

One of the rarest Ferrari models ever produced, particularly in right-hand drive, the 365 GTC/4 was developed to meet the ever-growing demand among Ferrari 's clientele for high-performance grand tourers, with space for four passengers. It was introduced in March 1971 to replace the 365 GTC, which had been phased out two years earlier. Enveloped in a sinuous and streamlined shape, which had clearly evolved in Pininfarina 's new wind tunnel, which came into operation at the time the car was being developed. It was evident that Ferrari intended this to be a much swifter alternative to other 2+2 grand tourers on the market at the times such as the Aston Martin DB6 Vantage and Lamborghini Espada.Its engine was based on the Daytona 's 4.4-litre dual-overhead-cam V12, but the major difference was that the car used side-draft carburation, which allowed for a lower bonnet line. The chassis of the 365 GTC/4 was essentially that of a GTB Daytona, albeit stretched an additional 100 millimetres for extra cabin room. The bodywork panels were unique to the GTC/4 and were not shared with other models in the range. Around 500 examples were built over an eighteen-month period and, according to online sources, some 41 365 GTC/4s were produced in right-hand drive, with only 31 of those being destined for British shores.First registered to Mann & Co. of Weybridge on 13th July 1972, this car passed to a Michael Leighton Esq. of Shropshire on the 15th February 1974, and he, in turn, sold it to Albion Advertising Limited of Lichfield in September 1975. The car was to be enjoyed by the next owner, Donald Keith Moon Esq. of Eaton Terrace, London for the next twenty-two years. From 1976, he entrusted its care to the late John Etheridge Esq. of J.R. Etheridge Ltd., Watford, who had established his highly-regarded business after being a member of the Ford Advanced Vehicles GT40 team at Le Mans during the 1960s. There are numerous copy invoices supplied by J.R. Etheridge Ltd, during Mr. Moon 's ownership, and one of note details a replacement speedometer at 49,600 miles and, as the car has travelled some 13,000 miles since, the total mileage equates to 62,600 miles.Our vendor bought the car from J.R. Etheridge Ltd. on the 18th September 1998, and embarked on a substantial restoration, with the car being returned to bare metal and most mechanical components replaced or refurbished. This consignor has rarely seen such a hefty sheaf of Maranello Concessionaires Ltd. receipts. The considerable number of photographs of the restoration on file are evidence of this colossal task. From 1998 to 2008 this labour of love would also include an engine rebuild, an overhaul of the brakes, suspension, heating, electrics, interior and a myriad of others, with the engine rebuild carried out by Griffin Sportscars of Loughborough.In the summer of 2008, our vendor 's hard work was acknowledged by the Ferrari Owner's Club-Northern Branch with the award of their 'Concours Cup'. The car's selection for this prestigious award was not only due to the high quality of the work carried out but also an acknowledgment of the efforts of our vendor to maintain the period accuracy of the car's presentation. These included a period correct re-colour to dark blue from the factory Argento Silver, with the interior re-trimmed in Cuoio Tan leather, as close to Ferrari VM3218 as possible. It must be agreed that this colour scheme complements the flowing lines of the GTC/4 perfectly.Matching engine and gearbox numbers are confirmed by the car's Ferrari Heritage Certificate, and the car is accompanied by a superb history file that includes 21 MOTs from 1977, extensive receipts, copy invoices from 1978 to 2007, factory tool kit, tool roll and even a period correct Ferrari key ring. To this consignor's eye, the Cromodora wheels require some detailing and the rear boot lid underside repair may need slight attention to satisfy any future Concours' judges.Said to be far easier to drive than the GTB Daytona, this GTC/4 offers a near fifty percent saving at current retail prices and is a considerably rarer alternative.

1985 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalve

1985 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalve

Lot # 320 (Sale Order: 20 of 77)

October 1975, saw the debut at the Paris Motor Show of the most successful shape ever to wear the Cavallino Rampante emblem, the Ferrari 308. The 3-litre, four-cam V8 was more or less unchanged until March 1981 when Bosch fuel injection was added in place of the 4 double-choke Webers, reducing the engine's power output significantly. Two years later, the 4-valve per cylinder Quattrovalvole or 'QV' model pushed output back up to 240 bhp restoring the status quo. Only 233 right-hand drive 308 GTS QV 's were produced. This beautiful 308 GTS QV was supplied new by Reg Vardy Ltd. Tyne & Wear, on 5th August 1985 to a Mr S. Hendrickson of County Durham and was finished in arguably the best Ferrari colour combination of Rosso Corsa with Crema interior and red carpets throughout. Passing through the hands of a further 2 owners, this car was sold by Maranello Concessionaires in 1989 to a Mr G. D 'Arcy Evans, who was the brother of one of the salesmen there at the time. During Mr D 'Arcy Evans ownership, and by 1995, the car had covered only 30,673 miles, meaning minimal use since. He was to keep the car until 2002, when it was sold by respected Ferrari specialist, Talacrest, to a Mr J. Penniceard. A retired engineer, Mr Penniceard took great pride in ownership and had the front and rear suspension removed, shot blasted & powder coated before being fully reassembled. The service and maintenance history that accompanies this car is comprehensively logged in a leather-bound file, and consists of the original service book with 6 stamps, 21 previous MOT certificates, the first of which dates back to 1989, numerous bills from marque specialists: Talacrest, Modena and Rardley. Our vendor had Ferrari specialist QV London inspect the car on his behalf pre-purchase in 2014, who gave it a glowing ‘report card ' with many a positive remark. In March 2016 by which point mileage was recorded at 37,736 miles, the car was sent to Rardley Motors, where it received a comprehensive service and new cambelts. Since then use has been infrequent and this car is now showing 38,500 miles which we believe to be correct, as supported by the raft of MOT 's and service records. Supplied with a spare set of split-rim wheels, its jack and toolkit, original spare wheel, and a UK V5c, this 308 GTS QV is in superb condition and has clearly been well looked after by all of its owners. MOT tested until 11th September 2017, this low mileage and rare UK right-hand drive car would sit perfectly in any Ferrarista 's collection today and we welcome you to come and inspect the car.

1975 Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera 'Sport' Targa

1975 Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera 'Sport' Targa

Lot # 321 (Sale Order: 21 of 77)

The 3.0-litre Carrera was sold between 1976-1977 and formed the link between two iconic 911 models, the early standard car and the 930 Turbo. During that period only 3,687 cars were produced which is a very small number when compared with nearly 58,000 911SCs and 76,500 3.2 Carreras that were manufactured over the years.Of the total number of 3.0 cars produced, 2,564 were Coupés and 1,123 were Targas, and not many of these were manufactured in RHD. The UK received a tiny number of Targas, believed to be less than 30, and it 's not known how many were ‘Sport ' specification, with (probably) only one in 'Continental Orange' making this a very rare car indeed.Chassis number 9116610033 is an original, matching numbers, UK, 3.0 Carrera 'Sport' Targa finished in Continental Orange (107) with a Black Leatherette / Tweed Inlay interior. The 'Sport' Option Pack was a list of 'M-Codes' available only in the UK and included front and rear spoilers, the ubiquitous Whale Tail, anodised aluminium in place of chrome trim, Bilstein dampers, sports seats, and wider Fuchs alloys.This rather special car was displayed at the Diamond Jubilee, London Motorshow at Earls Court in October 1975 where AFN presented the new 3.0 Carrera model to the British public. Their colourful stand was the centre of attention and in addition to the Orange car, they displayed a Porsche Turbo in Platinum Metallic, a Carrera 3 Targa Sportomatic in Ice Green Metallic, and a 911 Luxe Coupé in Shamrock Green.Our Targa Sport was first registered on the 27th October 1975, just 2 days after it left the show. The accompanying history file shows Steatite Insulations of Redditch as the first owner, and they owned the car for 15 years, eventually transferring it to Miss Sophie Cliffe-Jones the daughter of Steatite's managing director, effectively meaning the car was in the same family for 20 years. Ownership subsequently changed twice between 1995 and 2010 before being purchased by 'Export 56' on behalf of a long-term client from Brighton.The car is in extremely good order and has been well maintained during its lifetime. Over the past seven years, Export 56 have carried out work to the body, mechanics, running gear and electrical system. The front seats were recently retrimmed using the original tweed material.This car represents a rare opportunity to acquire a rare RHD, Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera Sport Targa with a unique history. This is a very original car and in extremely good condition throughout, complete with its original tools. The history file makes interesting reading and one can only imagine the thousands of people at Earls Court in 1975 who stared at this sparkling orange Targa and thought "one day". Well, it could be your day!UK registered with an MoT, fully serviced, Historic Vehicle tax status, and ready for immediate use.

1955 Jaguar XK140 SE

1955 Jaguar XK140 SE

Lot # 322 (Sale Order: 22 of 77)

Jaguar Cars launched the XK140 at the London Motor Show in October 1954 with a raft of improvements over its predecessor, the 'landmark' XK 120. The styling was enhanced with a revised grille and larger bumpers along with new rear lights, which now incorporated the indicators. The handling was improved by rack and pinion steering and telescopic dampers and the interior space was enlarged to allow the addition of occasional rear seats.The power unit remained Jaguar's well-tried, 3.4-litre, twin-cam six, which now produced 190bhp in standard trim thanks to higher-lift camshafts and revised porting. To ensure reliability, steel bearing caps replaced the previous cast-iron type. A close-ratio gearbox enabled better use to be made of the increased performance whilst a Laycock de Normanville overdrive became an option for the first time. Special Equipment (SE) XK140s came with wire wheels and Lucas fog lamps and (as in this case) could be ordered with an engine developing 210bhp courtesy of the 'C'-type cylinder head. XK140 performance was well up to the standards set by its exemplary predecessor, contemporary magazine road tests regularly recording top speed figures in excess of 120mph.This superb, left-hand drive XK140SE left Browns Lane on the last day of January 1955 and was shipped to California by the legendary Jaguar distributor, Max Hoffman. In 1998 the car was repatriated by John Condon on behalf of a customer (a well known London restaurant owner at the time) to be totally restored and when finished, added to his collection in Cyprus. The restoration took over five years and was completed to a very high standard. Our vendor believes, but can't confirm, that the work was carried out by Fender-Broad in Bristol, restorers of some repute. Sadly the owner passed away and it was handed back to John Condon to sell on behalf of the estate. Unfortunately, all the details of the restoration were in Cyprus and have been unavailable.Our vendor purchased this lovely Jaguar in 2014, and although generally excellent, spent a further £5,500 bringing the car back to the amazing condition in which you see it today. The engine had been fully rebuilt less than 600miles/14 years ago but he spent £3,000 in 2015 on a full service and recommission. The brakes have been stripped and rebuilt, the tachometer and the time clock serviced by Speedy Cables, and a correct stainless steel exhaust system fitted along with a new fuel pump and coil. New side-screens have been tailor made and they complement the gleaming 'Piano-finish' British Racing Green coachwork and the Suede Green mohair hood really well. The superb interior is also finished in Suede Green and the door tops and dash top are covered in Olive Green leather. The car is accompanied by a few original tools, an Instruction Manual and its Jaguar Heritage Certificate.As part of a ten car collection, the Jaguar is only lightly used and naturally, cherished. Our vendor tells us that 'Most people would rate the condition as perfect....I would say it's excellent.” however, this stylish, fifties, classic Jaguar is undoubtedly a lovely example.

1949 Land Rover Series I

1949 Land Rover Series I

Lot # 323 (Sale Order: 23 of 77)

In the early 1940s, Maurice Wilks, Rover 's Chief Designer and brother of the company 's Managing Director, Spencer owned a beaten-up Willys Jeep which he used on his farm in Anglesey. When faced with having to replace it, he embarked on designing his own off-road utility vehicle. The 'Rover for the Land” was born. Launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show in 1948, who could have predicted that production would have carried on well into the next century. An instant success, within months, order books were overflowing. This iconic off-roader must be one of the most recognised vehicles on the planet, having been adopted by Police Forces, construction companies, farmers and Armed Services around the World. By the early 1950s, Land Rovers were outselling Rovers other vehicles by a factor of 2 to 1. This 1949 Series I 80 inch, 'lights behind the grille' model is fitted with Land Rover 's 2.25-litre petrol engine, making it more usable than the original 1.6-litre unit, which also had a habit of overheating. JAO 327 also benefits from the later, less recalcitrant gearbox. The chassis and bulkhead appear to be in good order and the interior is fitted with the correct seats, dash panel and door tops. This old 'Landy” has had only two previous keepers in 68 years. Although the car runs, drives and stops, this ever-popular off-roader is unquestionably ripe for restoration.

1971 Aston Martin DB6 MKII Vantage

1971 Aston Martin DB6 MKII Vantage

Lot # 324 (Sale Order: 24 of 77)

Considered by many to be the last 'real' Aston Martin, the DB6 was launched in 1965 and replaced the DB5. The wheelbase was now 4" (100mm) longer than before, resulting in an extensive restyle with a more steeply raked windscreen, reshaped rear quarter windows, and a raised roofline which made the rear seats considerably more viable. Opening front quarter lights made a reappearance, but the major change was at the rear where a 'Kamm' tail with spoiler improved the aerodynamics, greatly enhancing stability at high speeds. The Tadek Marek-designed, six-cylinder engine, which had been enlarged to 3,995cc for the preceding DB5, remained unchanged and the power output on triple SU carburettors was 282bhp, rising to 325bhp in Vantage specification with triple Webers. In the summer of 1969, the Mark 2 DB6 was announced in Saloon and Convertible (Volante) versions. Distinguishable by its flared wheel arches and DBS wheels, the Mark 2 benefitted from power-assisted steering as standard and could be ordered with AE Brico electronic fuel injection. When DB6 production ceased in 1970, a total of 1,575 saloons had been made, plus 178 of the long-wheelbase Volante convertibles, but significantly only 50 Mk2 Vantages. This original right hand drive car is a factory Vantage specification DB6 MKII, with matching chassis and engine numbers and was delivered new on 3rd March 1971. Finished now, as it was when new, in Dubonnet Rosso with a Tan interior, the original logbook accompanying the car confirms that it was first registered in the UK on the 3rd March 1971 to A & B Cars Ltd, who were the supplying dealers. Three owners enjoyed the car in the UK up until 1974 when it was exported to the warmer climes of South Australia. Some years later the well-known car collector, Peter Rae, persuaded his uncle (who owned the car in Australia) to part with it and subsequently bought the car back to the UK in 1988, where it was promptly entrusted to marque specialists, R.S. Williams, who serviced the Aston and carried out a full inspection in November of that year. Studying the accompanying history file it appears '4286/R' has enjoyed routine servicing and sundry repairs and maintenance throughout most of its life, however, after experiencing the heat and fierce sunlight in Australia the paintwork was no longer at its best and it was decided to repaint the car during the ownership of Mr G Hamilton, whilst residing in his collection in Jersey during the 90's. The history file also contains various letters and invoices for the period before going to Australia and after returning to the UK in 1988 onwards. Indeed, one fastidious owner, who owned the car in 1973/74, kept diaries detailing any work carried out where he travelled on days out and documenting the mileage as he went along. These diaries are included with the car and make fascinating reading describing life with an Aston in the early Seventies. The car was then purchased in May 2000 by John Llewellyn, who had been looking for the best factory DB6 Mark 2 Vantage he could find. He owned it until 2012 and fastidiously maintained and improved the car over those years. There are a number of invoices on file amounting to many thousands of pounds from Aston Engineering including a large one for an engine out refresh during which the engine bay was rewired and tidied and the engine was decarbonised, converted to 'unleaded', and a new clutch and flywheel fitted. John used the car sparingly during this period but on a couple of occasions took it down to the Cote d'Azur where it would be parked outside La Mere Germaine in Villefranche-sur-Mer, and greeted with a ripple of applause from the knowledgeable clientele, exposed daily to acres of brightly-coloured 'Supercars'. Having decided to move to France in 2012, it was time to move the Aston on and he sold it to our vendor, John Cleland, owner of 'Clelands Volvo', a long established and well-respected dealership in the Scottish Borders. However, John is probably better known as a hugely successful Touring Car driver (BTCC Champion 1989 and 1995), global car racer, commentator and TV personality. Having access to a vast array of exotic machinery meant that John kept the DB6 for special days out, and consequently only covered a few miles during those years. Naturally, it was maintained by his own team of talented auto-engineers. The odometer now reads 36,924 miles, which studying the history accompanying the car, may well be correct but, with few records from its period in Australia, cannot be warranted. The Dubonnet Rosso paintwork still retains a deep shine and the bodywork looks excellent with some of the best and most consistent shut lines we have ever seen on a hand-built Aston. There are one or two tiny blemishes here and there and the interior is gently patinated, but this is an unrestored car...for more details, please see http://www.silverstoneauctions.com/1971-aston-martin-db6-mkii-vantage-saloon

1993 Ferrari 512 TR

1993 Ferrari 512 TR

Lot # 325 (Sale Order: 25 of 77)

The Testarossa was first seen at the Paris Motor Show in 1984, its name derived from the legendary 1957 Ferrari 250 GT, and the car went on to achieve many awards including "Design of the Year" and the "Car Design Award". This acclaim recognised not only the brilliant aesthetics of the car but its technical accomplishments as well. It's difficult to surpass excellence, particularly when compared with such an illustrious predecessor as the original Testarossa - a car which had already attained a particularly high level of performance, maximum speed, acceleration, and road handling.So how was it going to be possible to proceed one step further? In 1991, the answer came in the form of Ferrari 512 TR. The new TR represented a significant step up in Ferrari performance. With 41 more horsepower than its predecessor, the new 428 bhp engine shaved a whole second off the already impressive 5.7 second 0-60 mph acceleration. The chassis was extensively reconstructed, as was the 5-speed manual transmission and brakes, and the bodywork received a minor facelift giving the TR a more aggressive stance, whilst still retaining that distinctive Testarossa style.This, left-hand drive, 512 TR is finished in Rosso Corsa with a black leather interior. It has formed part of a private collection and was purchased by our vendor from the Italian collector. Supplied new by Motor s.p.a in Modena, a Mr E. Golinelli took delivery of this example on 17th November 1992. There are nine stamps listed in the service booklet and the last was carried out within the last 1,000 kilometres. The current mileage is 88,363 kilometres or 54,906 miles but the condition would suggest this Ferrari has been cherished over the years. The Rosso Corsa bodywork is unmarked, dent free and retains a lovely shine, whilst the black leather interior is in superb condition. Supplied with its tool roll, full leather maintenance wallet, and bills and receipts for recent work, the vendor would like the car to go to a new home in order to focus on other projects.Offered at a most realistic estimate, this particular 512 TR offers a fantastic opportunity considering its impressive overall condition. We welcome any inspection on this Ferrari and buyers should contact the office for all further details or to arrange a pre-sale inspection.
