Desirable K-Code Mustang finished in Guardsman BlueRaced from new in 1965 by David Tallasken before being campaigned by IMSA winner Gene FeltonEngine totally rebuilt by I.C.E. Automotive Racing Engines in 2017 and used minimally sincePotential entrant to Goodwood Revival, Tour Auto, Spa 6 Hours, and Masters Pre-66 Touring carsSupplied with a UK V5c and a superb history fileUK saloon racing in the 1960s was epitomised by the battles between the American V8s and the British Lotus Ford Cortinas and Austin Coopers of the day. They were driven, in the British Saloon Car Championship (pre-BTCC), by current Grand-Prix stars such as Jim Clark, Jack Brabham and Graham Hill, as well as saloon car specialists like Frank Gardener, Brian Muir, Sir Gawaine Bailie, Roy Pierpoint and Jack Sears. It was an exciting and evocative period of racing and the crowds enjoyed the closeness of the racing brought about by the contrasting abilities of the nimble Cortinas and Minis and the straight line speed of the V8s.We arepleased to offer this special 1965 K-Code Ford Mustang Notchback, finished in Guardsman Blue, which was purchased new by a Mr David Tallaksen who set about racing the car straight out of the box. Mr Tallaksen went on to campaign the Mustang across the South Eastern States, even setting a track record at Savannah International Speedway in 1965. A few years later Mr Tallaksen went on to own a Ford GT40 Mk.I clearly bitten by the Ford / Shelby bug.Late on in the 1965 season, the car changed pilots and owners, when Tallaksen sold it to a Mr Gene Felton, who, at the time couldnt afford a new Shelby Mustang, so decided instead to have this car upgraded to Shelby specification. Two full seasons in the SCCA Regional and National Championships in 1966 and 1967, saw Gene win a number of races and finish in the top three each season, culminating in an overall win of the Southeast Division in 1967. The car and driver were both invited to the American Road Race of Champions each year, with a credible 6th placefinish overall at Riverside, California in 1966 a picture of the car in action at this race is included in the file. In July 1967, Gene Felton entered The Paul Revere 250 Trans Am race at Daytona, leading the charge until an engine fault forced retirement from the race. At the end of the 1967 season, Gene retired the car as it was in need of repair following an on track skirmish, and the arrival of a new Camaro saw the trusty K-Code sidelined. Remaining in storage throughout the 1970s and into the 1980s, Mr Felton eventually decided to return the car to its former glory and post-restoration began to campaign it successfully once again, winning on its first outing at Road Atlanta in 1989. Due to its illustrious period race history and its period-correct race preparation, it became one of the first historic race cars to gain SCCA certification in 1992. After some 28 years of ownership in 1993, Gene sold the Mustang to a Mr Richard Amsden of Florida. The car remained in the USA until it was purchasedin 2006 by a Mr Anders Nannerup and exported to Denmark.During Mr Nannerup's ownership, it was raced in Denmark with a class win at the Grand Prix of Denmark and a 3rd overall in the Danish Vintage Championship before it was again the subject of a full restoration in 2008 preparing it to 'Historic 1965 Mustang Appendix K' specification. Finished in its 1967 Paul Revere 250 Trans Am race livery, it was invited to compete at the 2014 Goodwood Revival where Mr Nannerup shared driving duties with ex-F1 driver Rupert Keegan.Purchased in 2015 by the current owner, it has since been prepared by WDK Motorsport and was the recipient of a full and comprehensive engine rebuild by I.C.E Automotive Racing Engines in July 17 resulting in an invoice in excess of 15,500, however the dyno sheet confirms a healthy 395bhp at 6,800 RPM. The car was then campaigned at the 2017 Goodwood Revival and Tour Auto.

One of only 248 Type-S models supplied exclusively to the Japanese home marketA 3.2-litre V6 mated to a desirable 6-speed manual gearboxSupplied with comprehensive Japanese Service history, UK V5c & MOT tested until 25/6/20The perfect compromise between a standard NSX and the Type-R modelThe legendary Honda NSX (standing for New Sportscar Experimental) was developed by the Honda Motor Corporation between 1984 and its eventual launch in 1990, with major chassis and suspension input from three times F1 World Champion, Ayrton Senna. The NSX featured a state of the art 3.0-litre V6 'VTEC' engine (variable valve timing) and an all-aluminium monocoque body, encompassing a revolutionary extruded aluminium alloy frame and suspension. This made the car extremely light and extremely strong. Other game-changing features included 4-channel ABS brakes, titanium connecting rods in the engine and, later in the model's life, an electric power steering system and a 3.2-litre V6 engine. The car was the first realJapanese 'Supercar', proving itself and quickly establishing respect from its key competitors. Production continued right up until 2005, with only subtle changes made throughout its life.This particular right-hand drive NSX is incredibly rare and one of only 248 cars produced exclusively for the Japanese home market. The NSX Type-S featured a 3.2-litre engine mated to a desirable 6-speed manual gearbox and pushing out a reported 290 bhp. The Type-S featured a high specification cockpit to including a Titanium gear-knob, a Momo steering wheel, Recaro full-bucket carbon-kevlar seats, Alcantara and leather seats, beautiful stitching around the dashboard, mesh design engine cover (similar to that of the Type-R), and a coloured roof. The suspension was also stiffer than the standard Honda NSX. This car is finished in Source Silver Metallic with a body coloured roof and a black/orange interior which looks absolutely stunning.First imported and registered in the UK in 2017, this car is supplied with asolid history file from Japan documenting its service intervals. Since residing in the UK, it has been maintained by a specialist, is now showing 94,545km (equivalent to 58,748 miles), and is MOT tested until 25th June 2020. This is Honda's 911 GT3 Touring equivalent, i.e. lots of power, good handling, manual gearbox and importantly some creature comforts making it a very useable supercar.We urge you to come and view this car in person as it will not disappoint.

Today it benefits from a comprehensive service history which confirms the mileage of 71,150 as correct.Offered as a No Reserve lot by our realistic private vendor, this car is an excellent example and should definitely not be overlooked or confused with similar cars of averagecondition and provenance.

One of only 284 RHD Lotus Carltons. 377bhp with a superbly-balanced rear-drive chassisImperial Green pearlescent paint retains a deep shine. Unmarked Anthracite leatherOriginal, unmodified, showing just 33,300 miles.Extensively documented service records Effectively only two drivers from newDescribed by SW Lotus as 'The best unrestored Carlton we have seen'...Supplied with its original numbered 'Owners Commemorative Book'signed by the first ownerIntroduced in October 1990, the Lotus Carlton 'Type 104' (or Lotus Omega as it was known outside the UK) soon became infamous for its reputed 177mph top speed. Based around a four-door Vauxhall Carlton bodyshell modified to accept wider wheel arches, side skirts and a pronounced boot spoiler, the newcomer also benefited from Lotus enhanced power steering, and disc brake and suspension assemblies (the latter including a sophisticated multi-link rear set-up complete with limited slip differential). Fed by twin Garrett turbochargers, its 3.6-litre, 24-valve,straight-six engine was mated to six-speed ZF manual transmission. With a quoted 377bhp and 419lbft of torque available, the Carlton could apparently reach from 60mph in 5.2 seconds and 100mph in 11.5 seconds. Judged by the contemporary motoring press to be a performance match for the Ferrari Testarossa and Porsche 911 Turbo (though, some of its in-gear acceleration times were superior), the Type 104 only remained in production until October 1992 by which time just 950 are thought to have been made (320 Lotus Carltons and 630 Lotus Omegas).K930 XGS was registered on the 1st of October 1992, number 767 of 950 produced and one of three hundred, right-hand drive, UK cars. Effectively, the first registered owner was John Boardman, father of Tom Boardman, the talented Seat Leon Cupra peddaler in British Touring Cars. As discounts on these cars were not allowed at the time, the car was registered for a day to Vauxhall Motors allowing Mr Boardman to benefit from a 500 discount the next day whilst stillallowing him to have and sign the first owner's Commemorative Book which still accompanies the car today. John kept the Carlton until October 2015 in his name and subsequently his companies name.The current owner has enjoyed the Lotus since that time covering the last 7,000 miles of the 33,000 now displayed on the odometer. The Service Record contains 10 stamps and various older MOTs corroborate the car's low mileage, however, it's the singular lack of any restoration work that sets this Carlton apart, remaining completely original apart from a refresh of the Imperial Green paintwork on the bonnet to dispatch the inevitable stone chips. Nothing else, that's it.The car still sports its dash-mounted Grundig radio cassette and 10-disc CD-changer in the boot all in perfect working order. The air conditioning unit has been upgraded with the latest refrigerant and chills the car perfectly and the heated leather seats do what they are supposed to. It retains the original carpet mats and the factory rubberovermats and has recently been fitted with a set of new, original specification tyres. Always maintained to a very high standard, South West Lotus, who have recently appraised the car, described it as 'The best unrestored Carlton we have seen'. This is a serious car for a serious collector.

Dealer demonstrator and very highly optioned. Only two keepers15,607 miles from new-6,000 in the last 19 years. Full service historyCherished number forms part of the saleRecommissioned in 2018 just 40 miles agoA lovely, lovely, lovely 8-SeriesBuilt between 1989 and 1999, the BMW 8-Series was offered with a V8 or V12 engine and whilst commonly thought to be a successor to the 6-Series models it was, in fact, a new series entirely designed to be BMW's 'flagship' and thus command a premium price with looks and performance to match. The 840Ci was produced with two different engines the first of which was a 4-litre V8 M60B40 unit producing 286bhp and fitted from 1993 to late 1995. This was later changed to a new 4.4-litre V8 M60B40 unit which produced the same power output but had significantly better torque. Available with a 5-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual gearbox, the only external distinguishing features from the earlier V12 models were the quad round exhausts. As well as stupendousperformance - 0-60mph in around 5.8 seconds and an electronically limited maximum speed of 155mph - the 8-Series offered the latest in suspension technology, featuring computerised monitoring and adjustment of damper settings, and some rear-wheel steering. Reportedly 3,075 examples of the 4.4-litre V8 BMW 840 Ci had found homes when production finished in May 1999.Although out of production for almost 20 years, the 8-Series was blessed with classically proportioned, understated, and essentially timeless styling that has not dated, and these beautiful and exclusive Gran Turismos still look modern today.The 840 is such an enjoyable car to drive that it is very rare that we come across one with very low mileage, like the 15,607 miles example offered here. This fabulous car was supplied to Coopers of Thames Ditton and they first registered it as a dealer demonstrator on February the 10th 1997. Its finished in a most attractive shade of Boston Green and, being a demonstrator, was particularlywell-spec'd including electric memory seats, electric sunroof, black ruffled leather interior, and 17' bolted split-rim alloy wheels. After six weeks it was sold to its first keeper, a Mr Manning of Epsom, who subsequently sold it two years later to the car's current keeper at an indicated mileage of around 9,000. The sale advert for that transaction is in the owner's file along with the original purchase invoice, 16 older MOT Certificates, documents relating to the Cherished Number 'B11 BMW', service records relating to 6 services in total (with the most recent at 15,000 miles) and the original handbooks and spare keys. It has obviously been used very sparingly by its current keeper as he has only covered 6,000 miles since 1999.Having spent some time in the doldrums, these understated coupes have suddenly started generating serious interest, and this low mileage, really well cared for, two owner example deserves serious consideration.

The enduring Spencer King-designed Range Rover was one of the British Motor Industry's proudest success storiesInstigator of the SUV and introduced the joys of off-roading to a whole new clientelePowered by the venerable Rover ex-Buick V8, with chassis technology similar to Land RoversOff-road ability and style beyond reproachUK/RHD example subject to a recently completed extensive nut & bolt restoration, with in excess of 1,200 hours invested, captured in over 1,000 photographsAccompanied with a DVLA output of previous owners and a Heritage CertificateAn outstanding landmark design that almost single-handedly created the booming market in dual-purpose 4x4s, the Range Rover was greeted with universal acclaim on its arrival in 1970 and has remained the class leader, despite ever-increasing foreign and domestic competition, ever since.With the initial concept of a dual-purpose 4x4 hatching as early as the 1940s, it took two decades until Spencer King, Gordon Bashford, and David Bache fullycrystallised the idea. Their concept employed an enclosed aluminium body, long-travel coil suspension for overland needs, and a powerful V8 for high-speed cruising. The car has true off-road DNA, with a ladder frame and two rigid axles. The Range Rover was the first step towards the SUV and was the first all-terrain vehicle outside the United States to combine luxury and capability with a powerful engine.The first-generation Range Rover (now coined Range Rover Classic) was produced between 1970 and 1996 and initially, only two-door models were built, followed by the four-door from 1980/81. Whilst certainly up-market compared to preceding Land Rover models, the early Range Rovers had fairly basic, utilitarian interiors with vinyl seats and plastic dashboards that were designed to be washed down with a hose. Convenience features such as power assisted steering, carpeted floors; air conditioning, cloth/leather seats and wooden interior trim became more common later on in the production run. The RangeRover also served as the base for specialist utility vehicles including fire engines and command centres for the army and police. Marketed as 'A Car for All Reasons', the Range Rover was more capable off-road than the Land Rover but was much more comfortable, whilst also offering a top speed of almost 100mph.The car presented here is a 1972 Range Rover (Suffix A) which has benefitted from a recently completed ground-up restoration and looks particularly striking in its original specification paintwork of Davos White. Our vendor bought the car in March 2015 from the widow of the 6th owner, intending it to be used by his father and, with this in mind, took as much time as was needed to achieve the desired result. According to our fastidious vendor, over 1,200 hours have been invested (documented by 1,500 photographs) in this Range Rover, and absolutely no expense spared to make it as good as possible. Whenever feasible, original components have been rebuilt rather than replaced.This philosophy isevident top-to-bottom with this project, starting with the axles which are A-suffix and believed original to the vehicle, with the differentials found to be in excellent condition, but were still fully stripped, checked and rebuilt. Likewise, the LT95 gearbox is A-suffix and believed original to the vehicle, which along with the integral transfer box, was again stripped down and found to be in excellent low mileage condition. It too has been fully rebuilt, with only one new item required, a high-quality British-made main-shaft bearing! A brand-new clutch has also been fitted. The brakes too have been completely overhauled, with the callipers refurbished with new seals and pistons, likewise, the brake servo-assist has been fully cleaned and rebuilt, with every other component in the braking system being replaced with new.When the vendor bought the Range Rover, it had been fitted with an engine from a late SD1. This has now been replaced with an F-suffix Range Rover 3.5 V8 which in turn has beenfully rebuilt to original 8.13:1 compression specification (cylinders +20thou, crank +10thou) and fitted with Stromberg carburettors.The body and chassis too have been fully renewed, with all areas of rust cut away and new sills and inner wings being fitted, whilst the bulkhead and A/B posts received similar attention. The chassis was blasted back to bare steel, with older repairs thoroughly checked and made good, before being prepared and powder coated. The cars wings, bonnet, doors and tailgate have all been given the same reassuring level of attention, with new OEM parts used as required.The steering is original specification power-assisted, with both the steering box and pump being stripped and rebuilt, with new seals and hoses fitted. The original dash/console/gauges, headlining/sun-visors, wiring loom and heater have all been retained and reinstalled after any work required. Seat covers, door trims and side cappings have all be fabricated to the original design and bought from specialistsNationwide Trim of Redditch.Due to a change in circumstances, this lovely, fully restored early Range Rover will now be regretfully presented to auction with a history file that includes the Heritage Certificate, a DVLA record of previous owners, photographic records of the restoration, and a plethora of receipts. The hard work has been done, and this remarkable Range Rover is ready to use and enjoy wherever life takes you.(Temporary libraryimageattachedis used courtesy of Land Rover, and is not theactualvehicle being offeredfor sale.

The rarest and ultimate road-going R5 Turbo modelAlloy-roofed'Group B Maxi' homologation model, produced for compliance with a larger specific 180bhp 1437cc engine type (C7K-700) and other upgradesAdditional aero and geometry changes allowed the 8221 to compete against the Stratos, Audi Sport and Porsche 911 in Group BCorrect and matching chassis (F0010133) & engine (J000188) numbers for its typeDelivered new on the 22nd April 1985 to Montlhry Renault Dealer in France; imported into the UK (NOVA'd & awaiting UK reg number) from France; new MOTJust 87,000 kms (54,000 miles), newly rebuilt & serviced engineExtensive inspection and report from UK R5 Turbo expert Olly MelliardConsidered one of the most affordable of the Group B Maxi cars and tipped as a very astute investmentSupposedly, the Renault 5 Turbo concept came about after a discussion between Jean Terramorsi and his assistant Henry Lherm in 1976, who were aiming to increase the popularity of the Renault 5 model by creating a competitionversion for inclusion in FIA Group 4. In a bit of a brain-storming session, they came up with some slightly 'wild' ideas including an engine in the middle of the car, big wheels, and spectacular bodywork.However, the 'Renault Sport' engineers quickly embraced this thinking and, utilising the R5 Alpine as the basis, scrapped the standard front-engine, front wheel drive layout in favour of a mid-engine, rear-drive setup. As the project progressed, Renault Sport decided that the concept should be reversed, in order to get approval from the naturally cautious company hierarchy, and produce a really sporting road car, which could then morph into a racing saloon. Designer Yves Legal set about drawing the almost cartoonish hyper-trophied design, whilst Serge Masset and Philippe Chasselut worked on the 160bhp 1397cc engine and the resulting R5 Turbo made its debut at the Paris Exhibition in 1980.Renaults new R5 Turbo pocket-rocket sports hatch was born, an expensive-to-produce homologation special to allowparticipation in Group 4 racing and international rallies, and only 400 examples were produced, just enough to satisfy the homologation volume requirements. In 1981, Jean Ragnotti and his co-driver Jean-Marc Andrie won the Monte Carlo Rally outright for Renault, and the following year Ragnotti won the Tour de Corse.By 1982, Renault were producing the R5 Turbo 2, a slightly more production-friendly version of their race-car-for-the-road and, in 1984, 'Group B' homologation was sought for the Renault 'Maxi 5 Turbo' to enable it to compete in the World Rally Championship. By the end of the year, Renault produced a batch of just 200 special Turbo 2 cars, without any customer orders, to allow the racing Maxi 5 Turbo to compete within a higher engine category and utilise wider tyres. These superior Turbo 2 cars, dubbed the Type 8221, received a specific 1437cc engine type (C7K-700) with mechanical upgrades (including an uprated turbocharger, crankshaft, cylinder head, cylinder head gasket and rockeradjustment bolt) which was good for a rumoured 180bhp, plus an aluminium roof, additional aero and geometry changes, all of which enabled it to be competitive against the Lancia Stratos, Audi Sport, and Porsche 911s in Group B. Jean Ragnotti and Pierre Thimonier celebrated the new car's maiden outing with a win in the Tour de Corse in 1985.The Type 8221 is now highly-prized, and regarded as the ultimate road-going Renault Turbo 2, whilst also being numerically the rarest of all R5 Turbo models and the only version homologated for Group B.The car presented here is a 1985 Renault 5 Turbo 2 Type 8221, car #133 of the 200. Importantly, due to the rarity, value and imitation potential of these specific models, this cars type and authenticity can all be confirmed by the presence of numerous correct chassis plates, stampings and features. Further confidence and ratification come in the form of an inspection carried out by Olly Melliard, a leading UK-based R5 expert, who recently received the car at hisworkshops, and was able to provide a report regarding its type, condition and performance (this complete report will accompany the car at auction).Originally, it was delivered new on the 22nd April 1985 to the Renault Dealer in Montlhry and is believed to have spent its life in and around the South of France. It was specifically sourced for our vendor from a French specialist and has now been imported into the UK (with all NOVA paperwork completed and the allocation of a UK registration number imminent) and has passed an MOT.Our vendor informs us that prior to his purchase, the car was serviced by the French specialist, and that the previous owner informed the specialist that the engine had benefited froma rebuild(there is ane-mail in the car's history file from the specialistto our vendor mentioning this rebuild work).The indicated distance covered is 87,000 kms (54,000 miles) and certainly, the condition and performance of the car is commensurate with this moderate figure, given that it's almost35 years old!This fabulously eccentric 8221 R5 Turbo 2 represents the pinnacle of this unprecedented French concept, produced in very limited quantities, and is ready to captivate new passengers with its sheer performance, young-timer spirit, and its ability to impart such a powerful thrill of driving. Surely, these cars must currently be considered one of the most affordable of all the 'Group B Maxi' homologation models and as is the way of these things, a very astute investment.

The only choice for buyers to make was the gearbox, 19 of which were automatics and 31 manuals. The chassis number sequence commenced at '2822' and ended with '2872'.The rare and exclusive E-Type offeredhere is indeed one of the nineteen manual gearbox, Commemorative Edition cars and is numbered '2827', which suggests that it was the sixth of these special cars off the line. It remained in the careful ownership of Mr Wolf Bringham of Stratford-upon-Avon, England before being purchased by its next owner in 1984. A few years later, in the late 1980's, it was subject to a full restoration by renowned Jaguar specialists XK Engineering at a cost of 40,000. After its restoration, the car was put on display in Scotlands largest private collection, The Doune Museum, where it remained for approximately eight years, carefully maintained in temperature-controlled storage and seeing only very limited use. During this period, we are informed it was shown at the Scottish National Jaguar Day where it was awarded first prize in the National Concours.Our vendor, who enjoys a significant private collection, has owned '2827 since 2010 but, having covered only 1,000 miles in his ten-year ownership, the time has nowcome for someone else to enjoy the exclusive world of 'Commemorative' ownership. Despite the miserly mileage, the car was maintained to his exacting high standards regardless of cost, as the invoices in the Owner's File testify, indicating an expenditure of around 30,000 during his tenure with marque specialist, Trevor Farrington.Offered with the aforementioned history file, a Jaguar 'Passport to Service', and a factory hardtop, this very special, last of the line, E-Type is everything the enthusiast could wish for. Very rarely offered for sale, this is a rare chance to join the exclusive owner's club of these lovely black commemoration cars that celebrate the memory of that most iconic of British Sportscars.

Delivered new to the UK to campaign in the Ferrari Challenge in 2000The second owner was the current President of the UK Ferrari Owners ClubEligible for AMOC GT and Ferrari Club Racing SeriesSupplied with a large history file containing race results and setup dataThe Ferrari 360 'Challenge' is the factory race-modified versionof the hugely popular Ferrari 360 Modena road car. The 360 Challenge was a significantly modified, non-road legal car, originally designed for use in Ferrari's popular racing series the 'Ferrari Challenge'. When the car was first introduced, Ferrari claimed that the 360 Challenge boasted a quicker acceleration time of 3.9s from 0 to 62 mph along with substantially better cornering ability over the standard road car due to enhanced racing suspension and brakes.Unlike its predecessors, the 360 Challenge was the first 'Challenge' series car that was a factory built and supplied race car, as opposed to a road car with a 'Challenge' upgrade kit. This meant greater weight reductioncould be achieved, which when combined with the improved handling features, allowed the car to easily outperform its road counterpart - despite having a similar power output.This particular 360 Challenge was supplied new in 2000 to a UK driver to campaign in the Ferrari Challenge, which it did successfully for three seasons before being sold to the current President of the UK Ferrari Owners Club. During his tenure, the car has been used sparingly for the odd track day.Our vendor purchased the car in 2016 and fully recommissioned it ready for a dual assault on both the AMOC GT Challenge and the Ferrari Club Racing Series. Ready to be used on circuit once again, this car would be eligible for the aforementioned championships or simply be enjoyed as a fabulous track day toy. A history file is supplied with the car and contains race results and setup data and a spares package is available by separate negotiation.
