Anyone fancy what is probably if not the best then definately one of the best 930 Turbo Porsches’ available today. This car has cost near to £650,000 to get to this level and now could be considered a “bargain” at half that, £325,000 This 1982 Porsche 930 is fully converted officially to Ruf BTR spec+. Conversion done by RUF in Singapore and further enhancements carried out to achieve FIA race track worthy performance as and when needed. Some of its spec!! Ruf 3.4L BTR engine, Ruf dials, Ruf 6 speed short bellhousing G50 base gearbox, 965 spec intercooler, original Porsche ABS system, FIA certified roll cage, ATL FIA 2018 certified 100 L Fuel cell. And now for some bedtime reading here’s a brief resume of the car by its current owner. Anyway, this is what has been done to the car so it is rather special as it was built to do competitive racing at An F1 race circuit but is now street legal and has a wonderful set up – very competent on roads. 1.Full RUF conversion package done officially by Ruf Singapore. A lot more work was done subsequently. There is a RUF letter of Authenticity. Essentially it’s […]
Just arrived here in the UK with a friend of ours is this stunning and very very rare Italian but Right Hand Drive 1960 Lancia Flaminia Coupe Pininfarina. Lovely history and provenance as follows: Car was purchased from its current owner in Milan. Being one of only 143 produced in original Right Hand Drive form, so exceptionally rare. It was originally ordered through the Lancia dealers SAICAR of Milan for its first owner, Snr Paolo Sanguineti of Torino who owned a major publishing house in Milan. In the early 2000s when Snr Sanguineti died, ownership passed to his wife & son. It was after this time that it went to Carlo Cappa of Milan a renowned Lancia specialist to be mechanically refreshed (as proven by the plaque fitted to the front grill) then onto its next owner. Still in its original exterior “Grigio Albany” colour, although that has been refreshed many years ago as proven by the pictures used when it was listed on the Registro Storico Lancia & at the ACI in 1990,showing the car is still in the same condition today! Inside is superb with its stunning conditioned, original “Pelle Marrone” leather interior that has aged beautifully. Roof […]
Now with us is this very pretty and rare to find in black, 1990 5.3 V12 XJS Convertible. This car has benefited from a bare metal respray on the outside and new carpets, restored wood and reconolised leather on the inside. It’s been a Labour of love by it’s owner and now right when it just needs the final minor things to finish, he has to sell it due to personal circumstances. It drives very well (gearbox recently serviced) with no nasty bangs or rattles. Engine is smooth, sounds great out of the exhausts, shows great oil pressure and no signs of any problems. Brakes etc all function as designed but the abs light has come on since a new battery was fitted. The electric windows, locks and convertible roof all operate correctly. Coming with the car is a file of paperwork that has reciepts etc showing the work carried out over the years and there is a current mot through to October. Minor bits I know that need to be sorted, there may be others, are things like the light switches for the interior lights don’t appear to work and their small wood surround was lost when all the […]
Coming from the same eclectic collection as the 356 (now sold) and Fiat 600 we have available, is this 2002 Maserati CC (Cambiocorsa Coupe) With only 83K on the clock, a 390 horse power 4244 cc Ferrari V8 under the bonnet, six speed “flappy paddle gearbox” and four seats all for under £13K! Now has got to be the time to grab one as prices on these superb Italian masterpieces will only go up from here. UPDATE : Having just been handed its paperwork, there is complete service history (Maserati history by Lancaster the supplying dealer up to 2015 80K then its Mercury sports for the last three, the latest one being 25.10.18 82K )in its original wallet complete with all its books plus original tool kit and it is a 2 owner car.

Coming to us soon is probably one of the oldest UK spec Toyotas available today! Owned and registered from new by a Toyota main dealership then registered to the wife of another Toyota main dealerships owner. This 100 percent original car has only recorded just under 29000 miles since being registered in August 1966 and has spent the last 30 odd years stored in a dry garage behind a manor house. A bit of Japanese car history and a must for a museum or marque enthusiast. Will be running at point of sale but will need a level recommissioning (it still has its original spark plugs and tyres fitted!). More details and pictures will follow. No, it is not cheap ,but find another first year of Toyotas being imported to the UK, UK spec right hand drive car in this condition, with these miles and only 2 owners from new!

Well where do we start with this one? Back after the war when the Americans pulled out of the Philippines they left a raft of military equipment and vehicles behind them. Amongst it was a number of Willys jeeps, these soon became a status symbol amongst the locals but the climate, being what it is on an island in the middle of a sea, soon took its toll on the unprotected metal parts and they rusted away. The Philipino people who are very good at this sort of thing, started to produce various replacement panels to repair the original with culminating in full bodies being produced in steel. These also rust so the next step was to produce the bodies in 100% stainless steel which is what we have here. You have to say the skill involved in hand beating and bending panels to make these is truly amazing! This particular shell was purchased and then mounted onto a Daihatsu Sport Track 4×4 chassis and retains the full 4 wheel drive system, its 1600cc 16 valve engine and 5 speed box, this gives a crazy mix of Japanese engineering below a body that could of come out of the 1940s […]
A rare sight on the roads today this Dutton B plus is correctly registered so no problems looming with the new registration laws that are coming our way. The spec of this car reads straight out of the manual of ” Best bits to use” and is as follows: Engine. 1700cc dry sumped 711 crossflow, big valve head, full roller rockers, twin 45 dellortos, A6 cam, Lumition, rev limiter, 120hp. Mk3 Cortina gearbox box with rally clutch. Triumph Herald front suspension and brakes. Period Koni coil overs on all corners, 5 linked rear axle, Ford Capri rear drums. Period Les Leston wood rim with quick release, period Cortina clocks. Period Dunlop Alloys with space saver spare under bonnet. 3 point harnesses. Split 2 piece full torneau cover trimmed to match. A body off full restoration was carried out in 1999 by its current and long term owner. A man who is more normally found carrying out high class restoration work on Minis, but built this for himself, after discovering it neglected in a barn somewhere and with only light use since completion (2000 miles). Originally built in 1976 using a 1965 Cortina as a donor,this excellent and probably one of […]
lI have to say before I start that “I do like a Twin-cam” and Mr Lampredi knew what he was doing when he designed this one for Fiat! The 1600cc version under the bonnet of this nice Seat (Fiat) 131 Supermirafiori that we imported from Spain, is an excellent example of this. Helped no doubt by being owned for many years by a mechanic that specialised in early Fiats, it’s now 40 years old and still just as willing to be rev’d and enjoyed, especially when mated to an also excellent 5 speed gearbox. Interior is very good, just the piping round the edge of the drivers seat is showing its age in a couple of places. Otherwise really quite plush for its age. Exterior wise it has just had a full respray in its original colour as like any non restored 40 year old car that had spent its life in a hot country, its paint had faded into various hues of white and it had picked up various “bruises” over the years but most importantly “No rust”. This is why we go to the trouble of finding these rare and now sought after cars in countries with better […]
