The notion that the Mini might have a future as anything other than basic transport was an anathema, the idea of a high-performance version was laughable. One man though, saw it quite differently. Racing car manufacturer John Cooper already knew quite a bit about tuning BMCs A-Series engine, he was running the companys Formula Junior effort at the time and a test drive in a prototype Mini convinced him of the cars competition potential. The Mini Cooper soon established its credentials as a rally and race winner and the stage was set for even faster versions. The first of these, the 1071cc Mini Cooper S of 1963, took engine development a stage further and provided the basis for the 971 S and 1275 S of 1964. This highly modified 2004 Mini Cooper S has undergone extensive work to enable it to complete a lap of the Indy Circuit at Brands Hatch in under 60 seconds. This car needs to be seen to be appreciated as it has far too much information to list here. This extensively modified Mini is road legalyet suitable for both hill climb and circuit racing for the new owner.

The enlargement of its C-Series six-cylinder engine to 2,912cc, and the adoption of Girling front disc brakes, differentiated the new-for-1959 Austin-Healey 3000 from the preceding 100/6. In 3000 form the rugged Austin six delivered 124bhp at 4,600rpm, good enough for a top speed (in overdrive) of 114mph. Otherwise, the car remained much as the 100/6, though the more-powerful disc brakes were a welcome improvement. The original 3000 was built from March 1959 to March 1961 as models BN7 Mark I (2-seater) and BT7 Mark I (2+2 version), becoming known as the Mark I after the Mark II was released. Robust and tuneable, in its time the Big Healey was immensely popular with privateer racers and ralliers. Today, forty years after production ceased, Healey 3000s continue to be extensively campaigned in historic motorsport, both in tarmac events and on the rough stuff. Replicas of the works rally cars are among the most sought-after variants, and an extensive cottage industry of recognised specialists existsto cater for the demand for Austin-Healey parts, servicing and competition preparation. This particular example is road rally prepared and comes with extensive paperwork and receipts. Recent work undertaken includes a full service, an overhaul of the steering box, balancing of the carburettors and a new hardtop. This example is a highly specified classic, ready to be enjoyed by enthusiasts for the warm Autumn weekends.

In 1964, Maserati offered a range of spectacular motorcars, with the Mistral and Quattroporte joining the Sebring, 3500 GT, and 3500 GT Spyder. Maserati was building upon the success of the 3500 GT and Sebring when it commissioned Pietro Frua to design a new body to be placed upon an updated Tipo 109 chassis. The two-seat coup was named Mistral, after the strong winds blowing from the Mediterranean coast in the south of France, at the suggestion of Colonel John Simone, the French Maserati importer. The Mistral name was intended to represent speed, and the car certainly lived up to its promise. This was to be Maseratis last car powered by its famed and well-proven straight-six engine, which had descended from the companys 350S sports racing cars of the 1950s. A Salisbury rear axle handled the power from a ZF five-speed manual gearboxa traditional tried-and-tested Maserati-type drivetrain. Whilst the Mistral was similar in length to its Sebring predecessor, it had a much more lithe and roundedprofile, with a low beltline and curved glass. The relatively long bonnet was accented with a small air scoop, slim bumper, and a split air intake. Typical of Italian sports car construction at the time, the body was constructed in steel, whilst the doors, bonnet, and boot lid were fashioned out of aluminium. When unveiled, it was considered by many to be one of Fruas finest designs. In current family ownership for over 30 years, this early Mistral, from the first year of production, was acquired in the 1980s by Mr. A.J. (Bert) Rouille, in a deal involving a 1937 London Taxi, a 1964 Mercedes and a 1939 Rolls-Royce. In current ownership since 1990, the Maserati has been dry stored for some years, with the engine removed for refurbishment and refitting. Now offered with state of Jersey registration papers and older newspaper cuttings featuring the Mistral, this is a wonderful straight basis for further restoration works.

By the time Le Mans came around the design of what would be known as the MGA had effectively been finalised, the race itself being little more than a useful opportunity to check that everything was as it should be. Conceived as replacement for the traditional T-Series MGs, the MGA combined a rigid chassis with the Austin-designed, 1,489cc B-Series engine that had first appeared in the ZA Magnette. Initially this engine produced 68bhp at 5,500rpm, though this was later raised to 72bhp at the same revs to further improve performance. Running gear was based on that of the TF, with independent front suspension and a live rear axle, but as far as its road manners were concerned, the far superior MGA was in an entirely different league. Clad in a stylish aerodynamic body and capable of topping 95mph, the MGA proved an instant hit, selling 13,000 units in its first full year of production. Attractive, stylish and guaranteed head-turner anywhere, the MGA is among the most desirable and driveable of classicpost-war sports cars. They are also exceptionally user friendly, being cheap to run and easily maintained by the home mechanic, with ample spares and service back-up provided by an extensive network of specialists. This wonderful MGA is certainly not your average open top sports car though. Expertly prepared by Litre Classics to compete in the most challenging races, this MGA won First in Class at the Le Mans Classic in 2018. The car had been previously fettled by Oselli in 2018 and was the subject of an earlier restoration. The car comes with an excellent history file and documents including FIA papers. A certified thoroughbred on the track and ready to take its next custodian to the podium at Le Mans Classic 2020 perhaps?

When you bring out the new flagship of a supercar range and it only has 215bhp, you better have either a good sense of humour or a very good product. When Lotus wheeled out the Esprit Turbo HC in 1980 the Hethel carmaker clearly hoped it had the latter. The first Esprit had arrived in 1976 with a rakish Giugaro design that gave it the looks to wander into the supercar party, but was powered by a less than exotic 2 litre four-cylinder engine that pushed out a paltry 160bhp. Four years later Lotus decided to give the Esprit a kick up its Rover SD1-adorned backside and embraced the blossoming trend for turbocharging. A slightly larger 2.2 litre lump was chosen and a Garrett AiResearch turbocharger was mounted above the clutch bellhousing. The engine gained a different camshaft profile and the boosted inlet air was fed to the Dellorto carburettors to a peak of 8psi above atmospheric pressure. This equated to a power boost to 215bhp at 6,250rpm and peak torque rose to 200lb ft at 4,500rpm. Lotus waskeen not to appear to be cutting corners by simply bolting on a turbo, so a number of aerodynamic tweaks were made to the shape, including a new deep front spoiler, side skirts, extra plastic around the tail, and of course huge louvres over the engine bay. New 15 BBS alloys were fitted, 7 wide at the front and 8 at the back with larger brakes sitting behind them. There was also a series of suspension tweaks to ensure the Turbo stayed firmly on the tarmac. This 1987 Esprit Turbo was exported in its early days to Japan, later returning to the UK and into the current ownership. In more recent times the engine, gearbox and turbo have been overhauled, with only 2,000 miles covered since. With scope for further improvements, notably to the interior, this is a good prospect for the Lotus enthusiast.

The new 4 1/2 Litre model effectively employed the chassis, transmission and brakes of the 3-Litre, combined with an engine that was in essence two-thirds of the six-cylinder 6 1/2 litre unit. Thus the new four-cylinder motor retained the sixs 100x140mm bore/stroke and Bentleys familiar four-valves-per-cylinder fixed-head architecture, but reverted to the front-end vertical camshaft drive of the 3-Litre. Bentley Motors lost no time in race-proving its new car. It is believed that the first prototype engine went into the 3-Litre chassis of the 1927 Le Mans practice car. The car on sale today, UR6341 has been designed as a replica similar to UR6571 the Number 4 Team Bentley Blower. A little more affordable, though still a show-stopper, UR6341 started life as GVH 359 and is offered with all original numbers with the original registration included on a retention certificate. Built on a MkVI chassis modified by Bob Petersen, the Bentley was fitted with a Vanden Plas Le Mans 4 seater open tourer bodywith authentic ash frame skinned in aluminium by Carrosserie of Barnard Castle who also designed the pantograph hood and frame and trimmed the tonneau cover and full weather equipment. This fitting tribute stands proudly on 19 spoke wheels manufactured by Petersen fitted with authentic Dunlop Racing tyres. The engine was completely overhauled including new pistons, mains, big-ends crankshaft ground and nitrided with new prop-shaft manufactured for her shortened and lowered racing chassis. The gearbox was stripped and completely overhauled including new shafts, gears and bearings as required with strengthening modifications. A lightweight aluminium cooling system was installed along with a six branch stainless steel competition exhaust system and high-ratio limited slip differential, Lumenition electronic ignition, new 60 amp alternator and hydraulic brakes all round with twin vacuum servo units as in modern single seater racing cars. This design was fully documented by Tony Soameson of APSEngineering who built the car for himself between 2001 and 2004 regardless of cost. With her beautifully machine turned aluminium dashboard and accurately calibrated instruments the car is designed to be driven and enjoyed on modern roads, not simply to be an ornament. This is a unique chance to own a very Special Bentley with documenting photograph proudly displayed on the cover of one of Ray Roberts Bentley Specials and Special Bentleys publications. Ray himself photographed the car when it received an award at the Bentley Drivers Club Annual Concours dElegance. With an extensive history file, all-weather equipment, a copy of Ray Roberts publication showing the car on the front cover, personal e-mail from Mark Gauntlett enclosing a photograph of his father Victor (the then owner of Aston Martin) driving UU5872 the No. 2 Team Blower at Le Mans, full tools, R-type workshop manual and the required servicing schedule the new owner will hopefully enjoy her as much as the last owner has done for morethan a decade. As Bob Gathercole the Godson of W.O. once said, The use of modern technology where necessary for compatibility with modern traffic is a logical progression that my Godfather W.O.Bentley would certainly have approved of.

The 12/50 was withdrawn between 1929 and 1930 when the company decided that the future lay with the front-wheel drive FD and FE models, but when these did not reach the hoped for volumes a final version of the 12/50 was announced for the 1931 model year as TJ. Fitted with the 1645 cc engine this continued in production until 1932. The post-vintage TJ is referred to by Alvis historians as being from the revival period, and it differs from its predecessor in a number of ways, notably coil instead of magneto ignition, deep chromed radiator shell, and rear petrol tank in place of the scuttle-mounted tank on most older 12/50s. This elegantly bodied Ducks Back Alvis has had just 5 owners from new and comes with a history file containing previous invoices and old MOTs. Said to drive superbly this is a charming vintage sports car which would not be out of place at any motoring event.

The 1100 Special was launched in August 1979 to celebrate the Minis 20th anniversary. Unlike most that came before, the 1100 Special was cosmetically and mechanically upgraded. Powering the car was a 1,098cc Clubman-specification engine, pushing out 45bhp and 57lb ft and was the only non-Haynes fronted Mini to benefit from the 1100. Visually, the 1100 Special was spot-on. It boasted metallic paint in either silver or rose, graduated stripes, wheel arch extensions and standard-fit alloys. Inside, it was equipped with the 1275GTs instrument pack, and full-depth centre console. Contemporary advertising put it so well (underneath a very fetching interior shot) with its pithy tag-line, You take the Daimler dear, Ill drive the Mini. In the end, 5100 were built after the initial planned run of 2500 sold out in double quick time, forcing BL to run off an additional 2600. This lovely and highly original Mini Special was bought by the current vendor on 24th November 1979, in 1984 the car was transferred toher father before going back into her name in 2001. Lovingly maintained and boasting all its original features, this is truly a time machine back to 1979 and would be a superb addition to any collection.

Registration: Chassis Number:If the sublime purity of the original shape has been corrupted, its striking appearance has not. In our book, this is still the most beautiful of all contemporary exotics a gorgeous looking car. Motor magazine reviewing the Ferrari 328. Introduced in 1985, the 328 was the third of Ferraris highly successful family of V8-engined road cars that had begun with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Originally badged as a Dino, the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 took over from the preceding Dino V6. The newcomers wedge-shaped styling by Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina was not universally well received, but the performance of the amidships-mounted double-overhead-camshaft 3-litre V8 certainly was, and a new two-seater car using a dry-sumped version of the same power unit debuted at the Paris Salon in 1975. Built on a shorter wheelbase, the stunningly beautiful 308 GTB marked a welcome return to Pininfarina styling. Subsequently updated with four-valves per cylinder, the 308 was supersededby the mechanically similar but larger engined 328 GTB in 1985. By increasing both bore and stroke, the quattrovalvole engines capacity was raised to 3,186cc which, together with a higher compression ratio, revised pistons, and improved Marelli engine management system, lifted maximum power to 270bhp at 7,000rpm. Top speed was raised to within a whisker of 160mph, with the sprint to 60mph covered in 5.5 seconds. On the outside, the addition of Testarossa-style moulded bumpers, a deeper rear valance and an unobtrusive roof spoiler could not disguise its underlying beauty. This nicely preserved example was first registered in October 1987, forming part of an Italian collection for a number of years before being acquired via specialist Joe Macari in 2017. The team at Macari noted that the car was in great working order and still fitted with an older set of tyres and no signs of rust, and as such supplied the car to our vendor serviced and recommissioned. The work in 2017 included a full cambelt changeand new tyres all round. With just 30,000 miles recorded, a current UK MoT certificate and V5, this is a wonderful opportunity to own a true Ferrari icon from the 1980s.

Although few would have realised it at the time, the 1948 launch of the Porsche 356 was a significant milestone in automotive history. It marked the commercial birth of what has become one of the worlds greatest car manufacturers; a company that has many times won Le Mans on Sunday and inspired the rich of the road on Monday. Its achievements are unique. The 356 was a collaboration between `Ferry Porsche, the son of the companys founder, and its chief body engineer Erwin Komenda. The first examples of the 356 were handcrafted from aluminium in Gmund, Austria. And, with parts in short supply following the war, the model initially employed the engine, transmission and suspension from the Volkswagen Beetle (the car famously designed by Porsche Senior). However, within two years the car had been considerably re-engineered and was less reliant on stock Volkswagen parts, while production had moved to Zuffenhausen in Germany with bodies now made of steel. Thanks to efficient aerodynamics, sportinghandling and fine build quality, the 356 quickly established itself as a worthy competition car and it achieved success in such top events as Le Mans, the Mille Miglia, Targa Florio and Carrera Panamericana, as well as countless other races and rallies around the world. The development of the 356 was charted by the suffixes A, B and C. Produced from 1959 to 1963, the B Series cars are largely distinguished by a higher nose, larger bumpers and twin-choke carburettors. This well presented B Cabriolet is fresh from detailed restoration in recent times to produce the fine example you see here. During the restoration the engine and gearbox were rebuilt, and the car stylishly finished in black with a nicely contrasting tan leather interior. Offered with documentation to support the restoration, this is a great opportunity to own a classic Porsche in excellent order.
