A lovely 1954,right-hand drive, DB2/4 with great history and current FIVA papersOwned in the 1980s by Philip Gould, a founding member ofthe 80s pop band, Level 42Over 30,000spent during ourvendor'sownershipwith marque experts, Nic Mee and Moto TechniqueFIVA papers offering entry to the Mille Miglia recently secured and these may betransferrableReally lovely condition. Successin the 2016 Aston Martin Concours d'EleganceWith a fascinating history, this is Classic Aston ownership at its very bestThe Aston Martin DB2/4 was launched from Feltham in October 1953 and was offered as a sporting 2+2 hatchback or an open Drophead Coup. Although similar to the DB2 it replaced, changes included a smaller fuel tank, rear suspension upgrade, wraparound windscreen, larger bumpers, and repositioned headlights. A number of special bodied cars were also produced by Italian coachbuilders Carrozzeria Allemano, Bertone, and Vignale who were commissioned at special request by private clients. David Brown had purchasedthe Lagonda company a few years earlier, primarily to obtain the W.O.Bentley designed, double overhead camshaft straight-six, which he wanted as a replacement for the ageing Claude Hill four-cylinder unit. He knew success in motorsport would benefit sales, and used the 2.6-litre, six-cylinder unit to power the works DB2s which were campaigned at Le Mans and across Europe throughout the early 1950s.The DB2/4 engine (VB6J) was initially tuned to 125bhp, propelling the car to 120mph and 0-60mph in 11.2 seconds,however, in the summer of 1954, the capacity was increased from 2,580cc to 2,992cc, which raised power to 140bhp at 5,000rpm and reduced the 0-60mph time to tenseconds dead. The Autocar described the DB2/4 in October 1953 as: 'an expensive car designed to cater for the connoisseur of sports cars who is not limited by financial considerations.... a car of rare quality, unusual performance, exceptional road-worthiness and unrivalled versatility.' - a description that, I suspect, Aston Martin wouldbe proud to have applied to any of their current models.LML 687was first registered on the 26th May 1954, originally finished in Sea Green with a Black leather interiorand weunderstand that this DB2/4 spent much of its earlylife in Sussex, before being bought by a Mr Tidy in 1970, who kept thecaruntil the early 1980's. Further detail within the carssubstantialhistory file shows that Mr Tidy commissioned a significant restoration during his ownershipand within the file, there are items ofcorrespondence between Mr Tidy and various suppliers.By the late 1980's, the Aston passed via a London dealer into the ownership of Philip Gould, a founding member and drummerofthe 1980's pop band Level 42.Sometime later,well-respected restorer Andrew Thorogoodwas tasked with rebuilding the Astons engine and at the same time the wiring loom was replaced and the brakes and suspension were reconditioned. Inevitably, there was other minor work carried out to return LML 687 to rude health and we believe the account forall this came to around 17,000.Mr Gould kept his Aston foralmost10 years before passing custodianship toits next owner in 1997,and he, in turn, looked after the car for the following20 years.Heclearly cherished it hugelyduring this period and we can see from the owners file that between2008and2015the bodywork was substantially restored and a fresh coat of British Racing Green applied. The lovely patina of the interior was such that,on advice fromspecialists and fellow Aston owners,it was decided to leave as is rather than replace. The engine was rebuilt by leading Aston Martin specialist Davron, the carburettors were rebuilt, as were the front suspension and steeringassembly. The brakes were relined and fitted with Alfin drums and, as a nod to practicality, an alloy radiator and electric fan were fitted. A custom-made twin stainless steel exhaust was also fitted. The results ofall this workwere so impressive that the car was awarded Third in Class atthe 2016 Aston MartinConcoursdEleganceat Duxford.Later that year it was decided to sell the DB2/4 after 20 years of ownership and our vendor purchased OOX 209to add to his significant private collection.Our vendor, a real classic car enthusiast, has always wanted to compete in the Mille Miglia and saw this 54 DB2/4 as a perfect opportunity in which to tick, one of the mostsignificantmotoring events in the world, off his bucket list. FIVA papers were therefore applied for and successfully obtained, however, a change in private circumstance meant that dream never came to fruition so, regrettably, the caris being offeredto the open market,however, he intends tofulfilhisMille Miglia dreams one day.In order to keep the car up to his exacting standards, the current owner has spent over 30,000duringhis ownership, with Moto Technique in 2017 and with marque experts Nic Mee in 2019and there are invoices in the file detailingthiscare and attention.The Aston is accompanied by a fascinatinghistory filecontaininga variety of invoices for the aforementionedmaintenance, repairsand restoration work dating back to the 1960's, a photographic record of therecentrestoration, correspondence, and the normal ownership documents, logbooks etc.This is classic Aston ownership atits very best and we thoroughly recommend a closer inspection.

NOVA application pending (atoc)The odometer reading shows some 104,000km(atoc) with a comprehensive history fileRecent expenditure by Porsche specialists DMA of Nanterre and Virages of CourbevoieA delightful example of these competent Grand Tourers with black leather interior and sunroofCritics immediately recognised the advances inherent in the 928 over the 911, and the car was universally praised as one of the greatest 'GT' cars of all time.It handled, it was quick, it looked fantastic and it was comfortable. With the 928, Porsche created a serious long-distance grand-touring car that could also tackle twisting B-roads with ease, thanks to super-direct steering, 50/50 weight distribution and a clever Weissach rear axle that kept the car firmly planted.Many road testers found thattheir nerve ran out long before the 928's grip.Porsche continuously developed their range-topper throughout its production life, culminating with the launch of the S4 in 1987, which differed slightly from the earlier Series cars with its smoothed-off front and rear bumpers, larger rear spoiler, more interior equipment and a 5-litre version of the V8 engine developing 316bhp. 1989 saw further development with the launch of the GT model, featuring a more powerful 5.0-litre V8 capable of a creamy 326bhp, but more importantly, the introduction of a 5-speed manual gearbox for those who wanted a more sporty driving experience.This 928 GT is one of the desirable 5 speed dog-leg manual gearbox variants, finished in Slate Grey metallic coachwork with Black leather interior, electric sunroof and electric windows. Offered in excellent condition with original handbooks and service books, this French delivered example has covered 104,000 km from new. Supplied with a comprehensive service history with recentexpenditure by Porsche specialists DMA of Nanterre and Virages Automobiles of Courbevoie, the NOVA process has begun. The option codes for the car include the following CO5 France, 418- Side protection mouldings, 474- Sports shock absorbers, 650- Sun-moon-roof, 935- Draped leather rear seats and 980- Draped leather front seats.With a history file that includes the most recent invoices, in French naturally, and original book packs this delightful car has anunderstated elegance not often found in GT cars of the period.

An exceptional UK/right-hand driveexample with just 3,997miles (atoc)and full Mercedes-Benz service historyFrom a privatevendor, in as newcondition with just two diligent owners from newNormally-aspirated 6.2-litre AMG V8 with 563bhp matched to a 7-speed, double-clutch AMG Speedshift gearbox, giving a 0-62mph time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 197mphImpressive specification including a carbon centre-console, carbon wing mirrors, Command Navigation, AMG Active Body Control, AMG Performance steering wheel, 10-spoke Diamond-cut AMG alloys, Alcantara roof liner, 'Airscarf' neck-level heatingRemarkably torsionally stiffwith a bodyshell that weighs a mere 2kg more than that of the Coupewith anidentical drivetrain and lightweight carbon driveshaftsA supremely refined and capable open-top supercar with the added benefit of being engulfed in the rousing soundtrack of one of the bestV8 engines ever produced by AMGThe Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster isthe open-top version of one of the most sought-aftersupercars of the last ten years. Its low, sleek and sufficiently dramaticto stop pedestrians in their tracks, but can it possibly compete with the SLS Coupein the way in which it drives?With no exaggeration, reviewers of the Roadster were quick to say that it's an even more convincing proposition to drive than the Coupe. The level of grip is remarkableand it stops with great conviction, but where the soft-top really presses its case isin the more subtle areas of its handling repertoire, many of which are a nudge ahead of itsfixed-roof sibling. The engineering changes Mercedes made to counter the loss of rigidity caused by the absence of a fixed roof provide the SLS Roadster with an even more fluid feel to its handling.Pushed hard, it feels better balanced and, with its overzealous traction control turned off, it's nothing short of sublime. The SLS Roadster possesses better body control and greater levels of feedback than the Coup, and if there is any lack of rigidity it is never obvious. AMG claimsthat minimal strengthening to the chassis was required to compensate for the lack of a roof, as the car was designed as aRoadsterfrom the start. Tweaks include thicker aluminium for the sills, a reinforcing cross-member under the dash and another brace positioned behind the seats. The end result is a level of torsional stiffness thats almost identical to that of the SLS Coupe.Its not lacking in performance, either. Boasting the same 6.2-litre V8 as the Coupe, the Roadster produces 563bhp and 479lb.ft of torque generatingan official 0-62mph time of 3.8 seconds, while top speed is put at a bouffant-rearranging, 197mph. And without a roof to filter out its soundtrack, there are tiny nuances in the exhaust note evident inthe Roadster that you just dont notice with the Coupe, whether it be entertaining pops and crackles on a trailing throttle or the NASCAR-grade growlon a wide-open throttle.But perhaps the Roadsters most persuasive sales attribute is its striking appearance, which is nothing short ofspectacular. The retro-inspired exterior, credited to British-born Mercedes designer Mark Featherstone, lends itself well to the open-top treatment, giving the roadster a satisfyingly low-slung look that sets it apart from its fixed-roof twin. AMG has also introduced optional electronically adjustable dampers on the Roadster, with three settings, Comfort, Sport and Sport +.The car presented here is a 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster in simply as new condition. The original owner was a friend of our vendor and when the Mercedes was offered for sale, knowing the car and itsfastidious ownership, he jumped at the chance to buy it. As good as youd expect, with just 3,997 miles (at the time of cataloguing) from new, an enviable spec and a full-service history with Mercedes-Benz.

Believed to have been converted to right-hand drive in period by a Ford main dealerUK-registered on the 01/09/1968 as XLM 2G, which it still wearsFinished in Acapulco Blue and fitted with the 4-barrel V8 engine/automatic gearboxKnown ownership from new and consigned from a substantial private collectionRecently refreshedand on period wheels with a believed genuine 87,000 miles (atoc)Further images to follow shortly...The 1968 model differed from earlier Mustangs externally with a revised grille and side marker lights, which had now become a legal requirement, whilst a slew of new engines set it apart mechanically. The two-barrel carburettor 302 developed 220 horsepower while the four-barrel equipped version managed over 230. This 1968 Ford Mustang Convertible is an exceptionally rare, right-hand drive example that is believed to have been converted in period by a Ford main dealership. The car was manufactured in the Edison plant in Metuchen, New Jersey for export, and came off the production linefinished in Acapulco Blue, with the more desirable 4-barrel V8 engine, bucket seats and C4 automatic transmission. The UK V5c document shows the car as being first registered in the UK on the 1st September 1968 to a Mr William Flockhart of Edinburgh with the distinctive registration XLM 2G, which is still displayed on the car today.In 1981 the Mustang was sold to its second owner, a Mr Martin Hartshorn of Ealing and subsequentlyto a Mr Matthew Bracey of Bristol in 1982. Its fourth owner, a Mr Anthony Kear, purchased the vehicle in 1983 and it remained with him until 2009, when it was sold to Mr Timothy Skett of Honiton. The previous registered keeper acquired the car in 2010 and consigned it to our 2015 Silverstone Classic Sale, where it was bought by our vendor, the car joining hiseclectic collection. The impressive history file shows bills and receipts for recent mechanical expenditure and a large number of MOT Certificates dating back to 1985. The odometer currently indicates 87,000 miles (atthe time of cataloguing) and this is believed to be genuine from new.The Acapulco Blue paintwork is presented in very good order andretains an excellent shine and similarly,the black interior looks well cared for and unmolested. Dominated by the chrome Edelbrock air filter,the engine bay presents nicely and the whole car gives the impression of having been cherished. Imported new in right-hand drive and retaining its original registration number makes thissparkling Mustang rather rare.

Based at the Research and Engineering centre in Essex, SVE decided to adopt the 2.8-litre V6 with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection - the first regular model since the RS2600 to use fuel injection - plus lowered suspension, thicker anti-roll bars, gas-filled shock absorbers, and wide-rim alloy wheels fitted with Goodyear's 205/60VR NCT tyres.The specification also included a five-speed gearbox, a limited-slip differential (1984 onwards) and ventilated disc brakes for the front wheels. All this translates into a car that goes with wonderful eagerness', the Autocar test team enthused after rocketing from 0-60 mph to just 7.9 seconds. The Capri 2.8 Injection breathed new life into the range and kept the car in production 2-3 years longer than Ford had planned.In 1984, the 2.8 injection model was the subject of a substantial upgrade and was known as the Capri InjectionSpecial. This development used Recaro half leather seats and included a limited-slip differential. Externally the car could easily be distinguished by the seven-spoke RS wheels and its colour-coded grille and headlamp surround. Packed with performance and character, it paved the way for the superb Capri 280.The car presented here is a 1988 Ford Capri Injection Special and what an example it is. The current owner is an avid Ford collector and considered an esteemed authority on the marque. He informs us that this car is in quite remarkable original and unmolested condition, and one of the best examples of its type he has seen, with original paint, having been Waxolyed from new.It's aUK-market car and livedoriginally in Northern Ireland from 1988 until 1999, coveringjust 15,000 miles in this time, before being bought by a Ford collector in Southern Ireland in 1999. It formed a part his collection, being maintained/stored professionally but not used, until 2019. It was sold again in this year and hasreceived some sympathetic and expert recommissioning. It is currently awaiting UK-registration (which we hope will be completed by the time of the auction)One of the best available, with just 15,000 miles, and a must for the Ford collector.

Great registration ASP 1C(recently valued at 7,500)Very special car, known history and provenance, an AC chassis number and realistically guidedIt all started in 1961 when Texan Carroll Shelby wrote to AC Cars to ask them to build him a car modified to accept an American V8 engine. The rest, as they say, is history.This particular car was built in or around 1998 by Superformance of Irvine, California under direct licence from Carroll Shelby as a continuation of his famed AC Cobras of the 1960s and, importantly, has an AC Chassis Number. The specification is extremely high and should not beconfused with the plethora of similar-looking replicas. For example, the chassis is a heavy-duty, tig-welded, steel ladder-frame in 2'x 4' rectangular section withbuilt-in crumple zones and a stainless steel roll-over bar. The correct Ford 'Windsor' 351 ciengine (over 400bhp) is mated to a Tremec 5-speed manual gearbox and power is distributed to the rear wheels through a BTR Dana LSD.The car has the original 'shifter' gearchange, original handbrake, original Halibrand wheels/tyres and original Smiths instruments. The suspension is fully independent front and rear utilising the very best Ohlin dampers, itsits on Wilwood vented discs, all brake lines are braided, and even the 17-gallon fuel tank is stainless steel with a 'Monza' filler cap. Finished in the smartperiod colour combination of Guardsman Blue with twin Wimbledon White stripes, this left-hand-drive car was acquired by its previous ownerfrom Clive Sutton Cars of London in 2009. He then appointed the current Superformance importer, Le MansCoupes Ltd., to collect the car and recommission it at a cost of some 6,277. He collected the Cobra from them with 9,850 miles recorded and it had covered just over 12,500 miles when purchased by our vendor in 2018.The V5cstates the original date of registration of the car as 1965 and the valuable registration number'ASP 1C' (recently valued at 7,500) pleasingly accompaniesthe car as does a comprehensive history file and the car's original leather presentation leather walletcontaining the original owners manual.

Holder commissioned Jaguars Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division to develop and build two bespoke F-TYPE SVR racing cars to GT4 specification in which the selected drivers could compete. The teams mission was to give WIS servicemen or women the opportunity to experience the adrenaline of competitive racing and inspire others to embrace the Invictus Games ethosof 'Triumph over Adversity'.At the launch of the programme in 2018 John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, said, The F-TYPE SVR was the first series production Jaguar developed by SVO, exemplifying our precision engineering, performance and design capabilities. Its appropriate that this specially-commissioned F-TYPE SVR will be the first SVO-designed race car to hit the track.
