One of 284 RHD Lotus Carltons produced. 377bhp with a superbly-balanced rear-drive chassis Original, unmodified, two owners in total from new, current owner for 23 years In wonderful condition that truly belies the indicated 99,150 milesThe Imperial Green pearlescent paint retains a deep shine. Unmarked Anthracite leather Original Grundig radio/cassette and CD auto-changer. Tracker on a lifetime subscriptionLotus Certificate of Provenance, and a rare Lotus Carlton Workshop Manual The legendary Lotus Carlton is the kind of car that comes along once in a generation. At a time when really fast four-door saloons were the preserve of BMW and Mercedes, this Vauxhall (Opel) derived super saloon arrived on the scene demolishing the opposition. Oddly, it wasn't its huge performance or masculine good looks that created the most fuss, but the fact that the Daily Mail was so outraged by its stated top speed of 176mph, that it declared it too fast for British roads. Of course, the Lotus Carlton - or Type 104toLotus aficionados - was nothing of the sort, and although it shared its major components with a mainstream executive car, its level of development across every aspect of automotive dynamics had resulted in a truly special performance car.It was powered by a twin-turbo version of the venerable straight-six used in the range-topping Senator, which developed a remarkable 377bhp. To achieve that figure, Lotus had put a lot of work into the 3.6-litre power unit, uprating and strengthening the bottom end, porting the 24-valve cylinder head (from the Carlton GSI), and fitting forged 'slipper pistons' made by Mahle atop new Lotus-designed connecting rods tied to a counterweighted, forged steel crankshaft. The gearbox was the same six-speeder used in the Corvette ZR-1, the only transmission in GM's parts bin, capable of handling the car's monster torque. AP Group-C derived brakes - four-pot calipers with 330mm ventilated discs at the front and two-pot at the rear - sat behind specially developedGoodyeartyres.Purchased by our vendor in 1996, Lotus Carlton #811 is one of the original 284 right-hand-drive examples produced between 1990 to 1992 and has been serviced only by Lotus main agents up to 98,000miles in 2006. The car became a second car from around 2000 and enjoyed its retirement from daily use on sunny weekend trips to local car shows clocking up around 5,000 miles over the following 18 years. Today the car presents in a condition the truly belies its 99,150 miles. The Imperial Green 2-coat pearlescent paint (code E355) shines with a deep gloss and the Anthracite leather interior shows no signs of wear, in fact, this example will put many cars with a third of the miles to shame and is a testament to our vendor's fastidious care over the 23 year period. Sitting on a decent set of OEM Goodyear Eagle ' tyres and said to run and drive extremely well, the car is to be offered with its original book pack including a fully stamped service book, supporting invoices, spare keys, tool kit,currentV5c, older MoTs, a Lotus Certificate of Provenance, and a rare Lotus Carlton Workshop Manual. Pleasingly, it remains fitted with the original Grundig radio/cassette and CD auto-changer - with security code cards and benefits from an integrated tracking system (Tracker) with lifetime subscription, a recent MoT and a full service from a marque specialist. To summarise, this low ownership, unmolested Carlton is in outstanding condition and is being offered at a realistic guide which represents great value and may also turn out to be a great future investment.

1959 Vauxhall Cresta PA. 2262cc. Mountain Rose & Ivory with grey upholstery. The PA Cresta, announced 2 October 1957, is probably the best-known version. It mimicked the American fashion for tail-fins, wrap-around windows and white-wall tyres, taking its cues from the 1957 model Buick Special announced twelve months before the Cresta, though understated compared to the Cadillacs and Buicks of the time. All factory-built PAs were four-door saloons: the estate cars were converted by Friary of Basingstoke, Hampshire and are rare today. The PA Cresta had independent front suspension using coil springs and an anti-roll bar with a rigid axle and semi-elliptic leaf springs at the rear. The Lockheed brakes used 9 in drums all round. Carried over from the last of the E series cars, the 2,262 cc six-cylinder engine had pushrod-operated overhead valves and a compression ratio of 7.8:1 (a low compression 6.8:1 version was available); it produced 82.5 bhp (61.5 kW) at 4,400 rpm. A single Zenith carburettor was used. The transmission had three forward speeds. It was well equipped with leather and nylon upholstery for its bench front and rear seats and woven pile carpet. A heater was fitted as standard. The radio remained an option on the home market. Other options included fog lamps, reversing light, locking filler cap and external mirrors. In order to keep the front floor clear to seat six people the handbrake lever was mounted under the dashboard and the gearchange lever was column mounted. The car could be ordered painted in either single or two tone colours. A PA tested by the British magazine The Motor in 1958 had a top speed of 89.8 mph (144.5 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 16.8 seconds. A petrol consumption of 25.2 miles per imperial gallon (11.2 L/100 km; 21.0 mpgUS) was recorded. The test car cost £1073 including taxes of £358. They tested the 2.6 Litre version with overdrive in 1960 and found the top speed had increased to 94.7 mph (152.4 km/h), acceleration from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) to 15.2 seconds and fuel consumption improved to 26.8 miles per imperial gallon (10.5 L/100 km; 22.3 mpgUS). The test car cost £1077 including taxes of £317. The car without overdrive cost £1014. This car has been lovingly restored and presents in super condition today as the photographs show, during the restoration many parts were renewed to include the steering, suspension, brakes, clutch and battery. The wheels were re-furbished, window rubbers replaced, a new wiring loom and new tyres. The car drives just as you would expect with a crispengine and smooth gearbox and is more than happy in modern traffic. Although now MOT and tax exempt a fresh MOT will be applied upon sale. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.

Replica of the Altonen and Todt 'works' Nissan that finished 3rd in Monte Carlo in 1972Original engine bored and stroked to later-spec, 2.8-litresMSA Licenced car entered in the Monte Carlo Historique in 2013 and 2014£7/8,000 was invested at the marque specialists 'Z Farm' prior to the 2013 MonteLSD, upgraded brakes, sump guard, rally lights, wiring and electrics.MSA Licence lapsed. May require some updates to belts and seats etc. to reinstateThe Datsun 240Z, (latterly the 260Z and 280Z) was the first generation of 'Z' two-seat coupés produced by Nissan in Japan from 1969 to 1978. Its dramatic looks owed a considerable amount to a 1960's styling concept drawn by Count Albrecht Goertz for Datsun, presumably at a time when they were considering ways to break into the European sports car market. The early cars were powered by a lusty 2.4 litre, straight six, overhead cam engine, developing around 150bhp resulting in a 0-60 time of 8 seconds, and a top speed of 125mph. A five-speed manual gearboxwasstandard and the car featured independent suspension all round with MacPherson struts at the front and Chapman links at the rear. Rack and pinion power steering and front disc brakes meant that the 240Z was a thoroughly modern package.This evocative 240Z is a super replication of the Nissan works car that was driven by Rauno Altonen and navigated by Jean Todt in the 1972 Monte Carlo Rally finishing in a very creditable third place. It was imported into the UK in 1973, declared built in 1973 and ended up with a 1973 registration number but it's definitely a '72. Prior to selling the car in 2012, its owner at the time, Robert Gaskin, had removed the engine and had the L24 block bored and stroked to the later 2.8-litre spec before carefully reassembling it and installing it in the car. With some classic rallying in mind, its new owner sent the car to marque experts the 'Z Farm' and they carried out some work including fitting a limited slip diff, suspension, upgrading the brakes, a sump guard,somerewiring, lights, and sorting out the complex electrics of a fully equipped rally car. We understand the account for this was in the region of £7-8,000. In 2013 and 2014 the Datsun took part in the Monaco Historique starting from Glasgow on both occasions.Our vendor who predominantly participates in circuit racing purchased the car with the intention of competing in some club rallies to enhance other areas of his driving skill, unfortunately, shortly after its purchase, a health issue dictates that rallying and possibly even circuit racing could cause further discomfort, therefore the car has been unused and has remained in his collection since. Whilst its MSA paperwork may have lapsed, it is our understanding that a few updates to the safety equipment are all that are required to have this cracking car back up and enjoying the limelight. The overall impression is of a really well-detailed and functional competition car and harks back to the 'big Healey' days with lots of grunt andrear-wheeldrive. As well as historic rallies, the car is suitable for club events with night stages, regularity runs, demonstrations at Race Retro etc. or even just going to the pub on a winter's evening.

Originally owned by Prodrive - used as a recce car Recent engine rebuild by Graham Sweet and 6-speed JDM gearbox rebuilt by John RobertsHas MSA Passport and UK V5c and will have an MoT prior to saleA perfect candidate to take tarmac rallying Subaru's first venture on to the world stage was at the 1980 Safari Rally with the un-competitive Leone model, and the arduous African event would remain the focus of the firm's rally campaign for several years. In 1990 Subaru started what was to become a fruitful and legendary partnership with Dave Richards motorsport firm Prodrive, who would undertake the building and running of their World Rally Championship programme. Beginning with the Subaru Legacy, the 4WD's turbocharged engine and the addition of driver Markku Alen to the Prodrive 'Works' team, outright victory at international level continued to prove elusive. However, it was not long before a Scotsman by the name of Colin McRae started making a name for himself resulting in becoming BritishRallyChampion in 1991 and 1992.1993 saw the arrival of the new Subaru Impreza Turbo and it wasn't until the following season that the car was available to Colin McRae and teammate Carlos Sainz to campaign in the WRC. The next three seasons brought huge successes in the form of manufacturers championships and a World Drivers Crown for McRae in 1995. Richard Burns sealed a drivers championship in 2001 as did Norwegian Petter Solberg in 2003 firmly placing the Subaru Impreza and Prodrive in the history books of the WRC. Offered here is a 1993 Subaru Impreza `GC8' chassis designation first registered and owned by Prodrive. It was used as a `recce' car by the Allstars Team and, in the intervening years, was used on national stage rallies in the UK. As with all rally cars, it has led a hard life and inevitably has had panels replaced from time to time and even, we believe, a new bodyshell at one point. Most recently, and some 70 stage miles ago, the engine was fully rebuilt by Graham Sweet (who builttheengine originally at Prodrive), to include; a new crank, new Omega Pistons, Group 'A' rods, new baffled sump, new cam pulleys and belts, new fuel pump, a new VF34 turbo, and a GEMS ECU which has been mapped by Dave Griffiths of Interpro to produce 304 bhp and 366 lbs torque. Married to the engine is a 6-speed JDM gearbox which has been rebuilt by John Roberts and has completed 0 miles since. R180 differentials and shafts are fitted along with a new Exedy clutch. The car retains its original Prodrive 50mm jumbo Bilstein dampers which again have covered just 70 stage miles since being fully rebuilt by Bilstein. The interior features a Peltor intercom system, Brantz trip meter and maps lights. All prospective bidders should satisfy themselves as to the currency and legality of all safety equipment in this car. The car currently rides on 18" wheels shod with good Hankook tyres.Supplied with its MSA passport, a UK V5c, and a fresh MoT prior to the sale, this piece of Prodrive history would makeasuperb tarmac car for any budding rally driver.

RHD, UK-supplied example with just 7,500 miles and a recent Porsche service (Dec '18)1 of 6 Gen l cars finished in White without decals from the factory (EUR4,000 option) High-spec including Carbon Pack, Sports Chrono, hardwired battery conditioner & Road Angel GEMDry-sumped 3.6-litre flat-six revs to 8,400rpm, producing 409bhp. 193mph and 0-62mph in 4.2 secsA true 'homologation special' for the GT3 RSR race car; RS has a wider track for greater grip and stabilityThe GT3 is a product of Porsche Motorsport and is a high-performance version of the Porsche 911 primarily intended for racing, and named after the FIA Group GT3 class in which it was designed to compete, whilst the iconic 'RS' moniker is only ever attached to the very best and most extreme race-cars-for-the-road produced by Porsche, beginning with the 1973 911 Carrera RS.In March 2006, at the Geneva Motor Show, Porsche launched the new 997 version of the GT3 and the lighter, more focused GT3 RS (often known as the 997.1 GT3 RS). TheGT3models were substantially new and significantly more powerful utilising the motorsport-derived 3.6-litre M97.76 engine, an evolution of the blue-blooded 'Mezger' GT1 racing unit. In the new 997.1 GT3, this engine had been subjected to a meticulous, obsessive drive to reduce internal masses. The short-stroke, dry-sumped boxer six now revved to a maximum of 8400rpm, 200rpm higher, and with the help of a mild ram-air effect from the engine-cover air scoops, a larger intake butterfly and a compression ratio up from 11.7 to 12.0 to one, it develops a heady 409bhp (415PS) at 7600rpm. That gives it an exceptional rating of 114bhp per litre and makes it almost as powerful as the twin-turbo 3.6 fitted to the 996 Turbo. Also new to this GT3 engine was VarioCam, which adjusts the intake cam timing and thus helps improve both efficiency and the spread of torque and the exhaust system is essentially the one developed for the GT3 Cup racers. The GT3 RS was also equipped with new adaptive damping andtractioncontrol (PASM and TC as standard, the latter based on the system from the Carrera GT), the G97/90 6-speed gearbox, a mechanical limited-slip differential (with varying lock-up values), a non-dual-mass flywheel and a bigger clutch. The GT3 RS is 44mm wider at the rear (a legacy from the Carrera 4 with which it shared its shell) to conceal a wider track, giving improved stability and grip and to top off this focused package, it's fitted with an adjustable carbon-fibre rear spoiler, plastic rear lid and lightweight plastic rear window.The car presented here is RHD UK-supplied 2008 Porsche 911 (997.1) GT3 RS and is believed to be just 1 of 6 'Gen-1' cars ordered from the factory finished in White without decals (a EUR4,000 option). The car has covered a wholly verifiable 7,500 miles and has been regularly serviced (the most recent being at Porsche Centre Glasgow on the 17th December 2018). Our vendor bought the car in 2015 having known it as part of a private collection of very special cars,all beingmeticulously cared for (this car is fitted with a protective film where you touch the inner door facia and on the inner sills). As well as the more subtle decal-free look, the car's specification is very discerning, including Sport Chrono Pack (639), Safety Cage in black (595), Schroth harness driver (807), Carbon Package (EZA), Extended carbon package (EZB), Bi-Xenon lighting system (P74), Carbon door entry guards (X69), Carbon rear centre console (XMJ), Sill covers painted (XAJ), Carbon dashboard trim (XGB), and Battery disconnect switch (199). It's also fitted with a hardwired Optimate battery conditioner, Road Angel GEM, Trackstar CAT 5 Tracker, and 19' lightweight OZ wheels. An amazing package.This is a reluctant sale of what is now considered to be a true modern-classic, with the 997 being the last evolution of the 911 to use the legendary Mezger normally-aspirated engine and with its manual gearbox and perfect size/weight relationship, offers possibly the ultimate 911 experience.Professionalimages to follow soon....

1972 MG Midget MK III. 1275cc. Tartan red with black upholstery and a black hood. This stunning red example dates from August 1972 and comes with a huge file of invoices going back almost 25 years to show regular maintenance and improvements during this time. Virtually every single part of the car appears to have been rebuilt or replaced at some point and it is impossible to cover everything here. To highlight just a few of the major works: bodywork restored and repainted in 2003/06; new brakes and suspension in 2004/05; major mechanical overhaul and new wiring loom in 2009; endless new trim items in 2010; unleaded head in 2011; gearbox rebuild, new clutch kit and work to the front suspension in 2012. You only need to look at the car to see that all the work has been done to a high standard and a cursory glimpse at the underside is equally reassuring. It really does look like a new pin with sparkling paintwork and an interior that still looks almost showroom fresh. Apart from the vast pile ofbills, other documentation includes many old MOTs back to 1992, an original owners handbook, parts catalogues. Running beautifully as we took the car for photographs, this is a peach of a car in all respects. It now just needs a new owner who can reap the benefits of all that hard work during this coming summer, and no doubt for many summers yet to come. We will also apply a fresh MOT upon sale. Absolutely any inspection is welcome and viewing is highly recommended. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.

1981 Fiat X1/9 1500cc 5 Speed Targa. Bright Red with grey cloth upholstery and a black targa roof. The Fiat X1/9 is a two-seater mid-engined sports car designed by Bertone and manufactured by Fiat from 1972-1982 and subsequently by Bertone from 1982-1989. With a transverse engine and gearbox in a mid-mounted, rear-wheel drive configuration, the X1/9 was noted for its balanced handling, retractable headlights, lightweight-removable hardtop, front and rear-storage compartments and for being designed from its conception to meet the late 1960s U.S. safety regulations. The car was intended to replace the 850 Spider, another Bertone design, not the more expensive 124 Sport spider whose production continued for much of the X1/9's life. The car's monocoque body was produced at the Bertone factory in Grugliasco (Turin) and then transported to the Fiat's Lingotto factory for final assembly. As mentioned before, the X1/9's type 128 AS 1,290 cc (79 cu in) single overhead cam inline-four engine was derived fromthe Fiat 128, specifically from the 128 Coupé 1300. Changes included a new cast aluminium oil sump, complementing the aluminium cylinder head. With a twin-choke Weber 32 DMTR carburettor and an 8.9:1 compression ratio, the engine produced 75 DIN-rated metric horsepower (55 kW; 74 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 97 DIN-rated newton metres (72 lbft) of torque at 3,400 rpm. The all-synchronized 4-speed transmission was also carried over from the 128, though with a taller fourth gear ratio to exploit the sports car's better aerodynamics. As a consequence the X1/9 had a top speed of over 170 km/h (106 mph), 10 km/h higher than the similarly engined but 65 kg lighter 128 Coupé 1300. As standard the X1/9 came with 4.5J×13-inch stamped steel wheels fitted with 145 HR 13 tyres, while cast alloy wheels were an extra-cost option. Suspensions were all-independent, of the MacPherson type on both axles. The split circuit brake system used equally sized 227 mm discs all around.[14] Steering was rack and pinion. Theinterior, upholstered in leatherette, featured two bucket seats with integrated headrests and a four-spoke steering wheel (resembling the one fitted to the Lamborghini Marzal). This X1/9 comes complete with a folder full of colour photographs of the body restoration that was carried out during 2017 and the car is free from any rust or rot which was a huge problem on these models. The history folder also contains an original Fiat sales brochure for the car as well as some other documentation. The paintwork is in outstanding condition and the upholstery showing no signs of wear and tear. On test drive the car performed well with a strong engine, smooth gearbox and good brakes. A fresh MOT will be applied upon sale. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted.
