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 under half that, £250,000 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.

One of a collection of cars we have been asked to market, all of which are currently residing in the very warm climate of Spain, near Alicante where there owner has kept them since retiring there along with his collection. Very kindly he has said if you choose to go and view any of his cars, he is happy to collect you from Alicante Airport and then return you there with no obligation to buy. But please be “serious” about the purchase before going down that route. Now at the age of 82 he has decided the time has come to move them on to their next keeper and entrusted us with the task. All of his cars are very nice running and driving examples not needing anything past some very light recommissioning from such low usage for the last couple of years. Shipping to the UK can be arranged at apx £850. Thanks. A 1976 registered Jenson Interceptor is a rare beast at the best of times, factor in this particular example is one of the last built which unlike the others had a leather dash top, a wooden dash and centre console and with the console fitted with […]
This lovely Left Hand Drive Austin Healey 3000 Mk1 “four seater” was manufactured, according to its Heritage certificate, between the 28th and 31st of March 1960 then despatched to Los Angeles USA on the 7th of April the same year. Here it stayed until circa 1990 when it was exported to Norway. Once in Norway it was restored and entered in year 2000 to the “Rallye Monte- Carlo Historique”. Then staying in Norway, apparently in the owner’s front room of his house, until purchased and shipped to the UK in 2014 and purchased by the current owner in 2017. The Austin-Healey 3000 was announced on 1 July 1959 with production commencing soon after, making this car a very early example. Its 3 litre engine replacing the smaller engine 2.6 of the 100- 6 and gaining front disc brakes for the first time. Options were limited, comprising of “Wire wheels, overdrive gearbox, laminated windscreen, interior heater, adjustable steering column, detachable hard top for the 2+2, and two-tone paint” but this one had the lot, with the rare hard top still being present with the car as is the soft top and “tonneau” cover. As previously mentioned, restoration took place the best […]
Having spent the last decade in personal collections, now only on sale as its current owner has had a change in direction for his collection, this superb example of one of BMWs greats comes with the most comprehensive history files I have seen. It appears to have every service receipt, repair bill, old MOT certificates, old tax discs (copies) and even a blow by blow ledger of when, why and how much spent on it! Alongside this there is its original fully stamped up service booklet and original owners handbooks, all in the correct BMW wallet. You can spend thousands restoring a car but you just cannot buy this sort of history. If you are reading this I really do not think you need to be told about these wonderful cars! So unlike todays cars that you have to read a badge to know what it is, these “Shark nose” BMs are instantly recognisable with the M6 being the top of the pack. They have a presence on the road that set them apart. In lovely all round condition and driving accordingly, its current owner has asked me to mention that he would look to take a pre-87 Porsche or […]
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 […]
NOTE: Price Reduction First registered 12.01.1956 and looking to of been supplied by Jack Barclays, 498 FS has only had 3 owners in its life. The first until 1980 when sold to its second owner for the princely sum of £4875 according to the receipt with the paper work, then in 2014 to its current owner a gentleman collector that did use it on the odd occasion in his business as an undertaker, as a funeral entourage car. Soon after purchasing the car in 2014 the brake and cooling systems were refreshed with over a thousand pounds spent on parts alone. 5 new radial tyres were also fitted at this point. Unfortunately apart from old MOTs dating from 1979 and the original owners book, there is not a lot else in the way of history with the car. While not perfect the body work is nice, yes there are areas that could be improved, but still very presentable with nice bright chrome work throughout. Interior wise, the leather looks to be original and as such is now showing its age in places although I think today that is called “Patina”. Under that long bonnet it is very nice indeed. The […]
Having been part of a personal collection since being taken in P/x against an Aston Martin the current owner of this lovely Jaguar has asked us to offer it for sale on his behalf while also saying he would be happy to p/x it against either a Porsche or a Ferrari which must be over 35 years old and a manual car, cash in either direction. Needing no introduction this 1994 XJS Convertible is powered by what is probably one of the best engines to find its way under that long bonnet, the 6.0 Litre V12. On the road they do not come much smoother, silky power accompanied by a lovely exhaust note and a smooth changing automatic gearbox, a wonderful GT car made to just chew up the miles which is exactly what the owner before him used the car for, trips to his home in France, bringing the car back once a year to have it serviced and so maintaining its service history. Generally the body work is excellent with just the odd imperfection here and there, it is 26 years old and not a restored car after all. Inside is very well appointed and in again excellent […]
