An Italian market, left-hand drive example imported to the UK in 2002 with 50,976 kilometres indicatedFinished in Sepia Brown with a black interior and optioned from new with Recaro sports seatsOwned by fastidious enthusiasts since and subject to considerable attentionDocumented mechanical refresh by Autofarm in 2010 (20,000).6,000 more recently at Peter Chambers UK speedometer fitted in 2002 and only 16,700 warranted miles sinceOne of the finest 2.4S available, well sorted and set up, in super condition and superbly detailed The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the 'S' featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. In 1967 the 911T (Touring) was introduced as a new base model, initially with the 2.0-litre engine in 110bhp form before adopting the 2.2-litre unit along with the rest of the range in 1969, by which timethe 911's wheelbase had been extended by 57mm to tame the sometimes wayward handling. Such was the 911's success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them, a state of affairs that led to a substantial proportion being manufactured by coachbuilder Karmann at its Osnabrook factory.By this time the models on offer had stabilised at three: the entry-level 911T, middle-ranking 911E, and top-of-the-range 911S, all of which were available as either a closed Coup or Targa convertible. With the 2.2-litre engine's arrival, a common type of cylinder head was adopted, the differing power outputs being determined principally by valve timing rather than valve sizes as had been the case hitherto. In 1972 all 911 variants received the 2,341cc (nominally 2.4-litre) unit, which in 'S' specification produced around 190bhp, 60 more than the original 911 of 1963.For 1972, in addition to the larger engine, the' E' series had a further two revisions. An aggressive new front spoilerwas incorporated below the bumper and, in an attempt to move as much weight as possible towards the centre of the car, the oil tank was repositioned inboard of the right rear wheel arch, resulting in the introduction of an external oil filler cap on the right-hand side rear wing behind a flap ('Oel Klappe'). The propensity for petrol station attendants to fill the oil tank with fuel, and the resulting warranty claims, quickly persuaded Porsche to change the design and 1972 'Oel Klappe' cars became difficult to sell, possibly resulting in their comparative scarcity today. As is often the case, that rarity has resulted in the 'Oel Klappe' cars now being the most desirable.The car on offer today is a left-hand drive 1972 2.4S finished in Sepia Brown with a black interior and fitted with Recaro Sports seats. It was originally supplied to Italy and following a number of years there, was purchased by a Dutch enthusiast who retained the car until 2002 and looked after it well judging from the number ofinvoices on file from a Porsche specialist. The 911 arrived in the UK in 2002 and was obviously in largely original condition as indicated in a pre-purchase inspection report completed by Andy Prill. The customer who commissioned the report purchased the car and commissioned marque specialists, Autostrasse, to carry out a major service and deal with any recommendations arising from the report.In 2004, the car was offered for sale by well-known Porsche people, Gantspeed, and an email on file confirms the good original, accident-free condition of the car and mentions that 50,976km was on the original speedometer with a further 4,800 miles being covered on the UK mph speedo fitted when the car came to the UK.Porsche enthusiast, Robert Barrie, purchased the car from Gantspeed and sent it to be serviced and checked prior to using it on a track day at Goodwood. He used the car minimally, the mileage rising to 9,700 and sold it in 2006. Its next custodian also used it lightly with the car serviced byAutofarm before he, in turn, sold it in 2010 to a gentleman with an extensive collection of special Porsches. As was his way, he sent it to Autofarm for a full inspection and subsequent overhaul and there are invoices on file amounting to in excess of 20,000 for this work. All areas requiring attention were addressed, the gearbox was rebuilt, the engine removed, checked over and detailed, as was the engine bay, the wheels were refurbished, and a myriad of other smaller jobs all extensively documented in a CD. More recently, the 911 has been looked after by Peter Chambers Automotive with invoices amounting to 6,000 in the file.This remarkable Porsche has covered just 14,500 miles since 2001 and must be one of the finest 2.4S on the market. It's in really super condition with fantastic detail yet retains a really nice original feel. According to our vendor, it drives superbly and has clearly been sorted and well set-up offering all those wonderful 911 qualities that make these early cars soaddictive.

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.

Finished in Rosso Corsa and Nero with a desirable 6-speed manual gearboxUK-supplied, right-hand drive showing just 12,600 milesOffered with a UK V5c. MOT tested until 23/04/20Full cambelt service by Greypaul Edinburgh Ferrari in October 2018 The Ferrari F355 is now considered a modern classic, so beautiful, so well-engineered and so well received that it marked the beginning of the end of the old-guard Ferraristi' philosophy that the only 'real' Ferraris were ones with 12-cylinder engines. The F355 Berlinetta burst onto the world stage in the Spring of 1994, with the Targa GTS and Spider following in 1995. The new car shared almost exactly the same dimensions as its predecessor, the 348, yet it was virtually a new car, as its flowing coachwork indicated. Many hours of wind tunnel testing influenced the harmonious shape which incorporated an F1-style flat bottom with channelled airflow generating enough down force to offset any lift.The F355's name is derived from its 3.5-litre V8 engine and fivevalves per cylinder - as denoted by the Cinquevalvole' inscription on the rocker covers, and this longitudinally mounted power unit generates an impressive 374bhp at a spine-tingling 8250rpm. The con-rods are titanium alloy, the clutch is housed in magnesium alloy, and the Bilstein shock absorbers use electronic sensors to provide active damping. In 1994, the Ferrari F355 was a technological tour de force. Around Ferrari's 1.86 mile Fiorano test track, the F355 was two seconds a lap faster than the 12-cylinder, 512 TR and that level of performance, combined with its sensational shape, ensured its success on the world stage.This particular example is a right-hand drive 1997 Ferrari F355 Spider registered in the UK on 21/04/97 to its first owner. Finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero interior, this striking car is fitted with the more desirable manual gearbox and was specified from new with air conditioning, a stereo CD player, and black brake callipers. Accompanying the car is the service book whichrecords the latest service in October 2018 carried out at Graypaul Edinburgh Ferrari where the car was the recipient of a major service including cambelts, resulting in an invoice of 2,699.The car has had four former keepers and is supplied with a UK V5c, an MOT until 23/04/20, its original handbooks in their leather wallet and its toolkit. This, highly sought-after, 6-speed manual F355 Spider finished in a classic colour combination is now showing just 12,600 miles and is undoubtedly one of the finest 355s on the market today

New to market from 25-years ownershipRecent engine and diff rebuildVery rare optional Pininfarina factory hard topOptional Leather seatsOriginal Nardi wood-rimmed steering wheelIn the mid-1960s, Ferrari needed a 2.0-litre production-based engine for the new Formula 2 and conceived the mid-engined Dino to provide the necessary basis. Since the late 1950s, Ferrari's V6-engined sports-racers had used the Dino name, after Enzo Ferrari's late son, Alfredino, who had died in 1956, and this was duly applied to the new road car. Indeed, at this time it was intended that it would be the first of an entirely separate marque. The new V6 power unit would prove as successful on the racetrack as in the showroom: Derek Bell and Ernesto Brambilla both winning races in the European Championship, while Andrea de Adamich triumphed in the 1968 Argentine Temporada series. However, faced with the daunting task of building 500 units per annum to meet the FIA's homologation requirements, Ferrari turned to FIAT forassistance, the resulting agreement for the latter to build the Dino's four-cam V6 engine leading to a spin-off model for FIAT. Launched in Pininfarina-bodied two-seater Spider form at the 1966 Turin Show, the FIAT Dino carried its 2.0-litre, 160bhp engine ahead of the driver in a conventional manner, and was notable as the first FIAT to employ four overhead camshafts and a limited-slip differential as standard. Steel bodied, the newcomer employed a FIAT five-speed gearbox and featured independent front suspension by means of wishbones and coil springs, a live rear axle, and disc brakes all round.A longer-wheelbase 2+2 Coup model with Giorgetto Giugiaro-designed Bertone coachwork appeared the following year at the Geneva Salon, however, it is the Spiders, both in 2.0 and 2.4-litre guise, that have become most sought after amongst collectors. In the words of Sports Car Market: 'The Spider is one of the prettiest designs to emerge from Pininfarina's studio in the 1960s. and even accelerating in topgear from low revs, there's a seamless delivery of power.' A mere 1,133 spiders were originally built, but far fewer are left in existence today.This 1967 FIAT Dino Spider was purchased new in Italy as a copy of its Italian Logbook confirms. The last known Italian owner was a Mr Aroldo Nasi who sold the vehicle in 1988 to Henry Pearman of Eagle Racing who subsequently sold it to MrP.A. Brigstock. After changing hands twice more, the Dino was exported to Ireland, where the current Italian owner took possession in 1994. A three year, bare-metal restoration was commissioned by our vendor, the quality of which didnt go unnoticed after its debut at Irelands premier Classic Car Show where it was awarded Best in Show. Since then he has lovingly maintained and stored his pride and joy with great care. Recent major works include an engine refresh at 63,000km by respected Ferrari technician, Vincent Mezzullo, and a complete differential rebuild costing over 5,000.This particular example comeswith the rareand very useable Pininfarina hard top which fits neatly over the soft top, allowing for quick and easy installation. It was also specified with leather seats and a wood-rimmed Nardi steering wheel. With the car is a large history file with mileage recordswhich runconsecutively from 1988, suggesting that the indicated mileage may wellbe correct (although not substantiated).Buyers should note that it was only the 2-litre Dino models that had aluminium blocks, a weight saving that resulted in slightly more nimble handling compared to its 2.4-litre sibling. Consequently, the lower capacity cars were quite competitive in their class and were raced extensively in period, this provenance opening the door for a number of Historic events including the Le Mans Classic, 1,000 Kilometres of Monza, and the Targa Florio. This is a car that can genuinely be used for all occasions, be it races, rallies, tours or Concours, the car is welcomed by event organisers and admiring crowds wherever it goes. Presented infabulous condition, this represents a wonderful and rare opportunity to purchase a superb example of one of Pininfarina's loveliest designs which, pleasingly, carries the legendary name 'Dino'.

4.5-litre V8 with 570bhp and a 7-speed, dual-clutch paddleshiftA properly prepared, competitive car. Race winner in GT Cup and Britcar during 2017Maintained by the UKs leading 'Ferrari Challenge' specialistDriven at Goodwood Festival of SpeedFitted with an 'FF Corse' GTC Aero Kit. VBOX Lite in-car video system with OLEDBorn as a racing car manufacturer that made road cars to pay the bills, Ferrari has never forgotten its illustrious sporting heritage. Today, alongside Formula One, the firm produces an unrivalled range of racing cars for customer motorsport one of which is the 458 Challenge. These cars were built to contest one-make Ferrari Challenge competitions - which the firm has run since 1993 and currently organises in Europe, the US and in Asia - the 458 Challenge was introduced in 2011.The 458 Italia was a game changer for Ferrari, its jaw-dropping lines and eye-watering performance had petrol heads hooked at first glance, and coming shortly after the launch of the road car, the '458Challenge' was debuted at the Ferrari Annual Dealer Meeting on 14th July 2010. Ferrari claimed their newest Ferrari Challenge racer lapped the Fiorano test track in 1:16.5, which was two seconds faster than its F430 Challenge predecessor and only 0.2 seconds slower than the Ferrari FXX.Based on the 458 Italia, the Challenge uses the same 562bhp 4.5-litre V8 engine, which is left unaltered and in the same state of tune. It's matched to the road car's seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, although here the ratios have been altered to deliver better torque at lower revs. However, whilst the engine and gearbox are carried over from the road-legal 458, don't be fooled into thinking the Challenge isn't a proper racer.The most obvious visual clue to its intent is the large rear wing that debuted on the 2014 Evoluzione model and, as in the example here, has been retrofitted to earlier cars. In conjunction with under-body aerodynamics and a new front splitter, it helps generate lots of downforce, and theChallenge's wider front grille helps with cooling.Sitting 50mm lower than the road car, the Challenge's stiffer springs and single-rate dampers give the suspension a much firmer set-up, while centre-nut competition wheels are matched to Pirelli slick racing tyres.Opening the feather-light composite door is a giveaway to the Challenge's focus on weight saving via the use of carbon panels and polycarbonate side-windows, although, thanks to the addition of racing kit like the roll-over cage, competition fuel tank and quick-lift air jacks, the Challenge is actually only 10kg lighter than the road car. Designed for gentleman drivers rather than professional racers, the Challenge retains ABS and traction control and from behind the wheel, the familiar 458 driver-focused dash is unaltered. The racing steering wheel features a three-stage 'manettino' controller that offers two track-optimised traction control calibrations and a fully-off setting.This particular example was beautifully prepared by thefactory to full European Challenge specification and, from new, was subsequently run and prepared by Ferrari Challenge specialists FF Corse, achieving race wins in both Britcar and GT Cup. This particular car benefits from a number of upgrades above a standard 458 Challenge car, notably an FF Corse 'Aero pack' which includes the multi-adjustable rear wing from the post-2014 regulation change along with a carbon fibre front splitter. It has been fitted with a VBOX Lite in-car video recording system with OLED. Recent works include a new CCP clutch pack at 29,700 Kms, rebuilt oil pump and oil service, a new battery, and a new starter motor. It recently benefitted from a high-quality re-spray which was then protected by Armorfend stone-protection film. The driver's seat belts are in-date until 2021 with the extinguisher valid until January 2020 and the car is supplied with two sets of wheels and tyres.The 458 Challenge is a hugely competent design and, given the options of electronically controllingthe car's responses, it will react well to drivers of limited experience who will quickly develop the talents required to handle 560bhp and 1350kg, and thanks to retaining an adjustable steering column and sliding seat, it's easy for drivers of any size to get comfortable. However, after a bit of practice and a few races, any reasonable driver should be able to return this car to being competitive, particularly if run by one of the acknowledged 'Challenge' specialists or, alternatively, it could simply be the most incredible 'Track-Day' car. Just a thought.

UK-delivered residing initially in the Isle Of WightSuperbly presented in Indigo Blue over Biscuit leather with chrome wire wheelsTotally restored over recent years to a very high standard. Fully documented subtle upgrades including power steering, five-speed gearbox andstainless-steel exhaustOne of only 110 UK, right-hand drive XK150s producedLots of interesting history contained in the large owners file The XK150 was the final incarnation of the XK series and it appeared in May 1957, as either a fixed or drop-head coup. A more refined and capable machine than its predecessors, the 150 was noticeably different from earlier versions of the XK theme with a higher scuttle and door line, whilst the radiator grille reverted to the thinner slats of the XK120 but was altogether wider. The bumpers were deeper and wrapped around, a curved windscreen replaced the divided one on the XK120 and 140, and much needed servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes were fitted at each corner. However, the XK150 retained muchof the mechanical layout of the 140 sharing the same 3.4-litre DOHC Jaguar straight-six, which developed 180bhp at 5750rpm.Originally manufactured on the 25/11/1958 finished in Sherwood Green, this stunning XK150 was registered on the 17th of December as VXT 240 and according to the original Buff Logbook, was destined for the Isle of Wight after it was distributed from Henlys of London. It appears to have remained there until around 1974 as, within the history file, there are a number of old MOT Certificates, two of which are from the Isle of Wight along with a selection of old Tax Discs and a Bill of Sale relating to our vendor's purchase of the XK back in August 2007.He was to use the car for a few years up until around 2011/2012, and obviously loved it, as a decision was made to invest in the Jaguar's future and have it fully restored. XKs are fairly complex to restore, and it was felt that only the best people would do, so the bodywork and paint were entrusted to Jules Bodycraft ofStaffordshire and the mechanics and trim to Vicarage Ltd of Wolverhampton. A disc within the owner's file, compiled by Jules Bodycraft, illustrates the ongoing care and attention lavished on the Jaguar's bodywork and, overall the invoices from all concerned amount to over 55,000 to restore this delightful XK. This included the supply and fitting of a 5-speed gearbox along with the power steering conversion.Now finished in a beautiful shade of Indigo Blue with a Black mohair hood, a perfectly contrasting Biscuit leather interior, and sitting on sparkling Chrome Wire Wheels, this is a heart-stoppingly attractive car added to by the classic soundtrack emanating from the bespoke stainless-steel exhaust system.Now registered VDW 70, this XK150 is certainly one of the best we have seen and with the confidence imbued by the recent restoration, represents very good value for money. The car is of 'Collector's quality' and would fit nicely into a private collection, however, we can't help feeling that itreally ought to be used on the open road, doing the things that XK150s do best.

UK-supplied right-hand drive, Manual box, and 36,000 miles Superb F430 Berlinetta gloriously finished in Argento with a red leather interior 1 of circa 100 examples in RHD supplied to the UK with a manual gearbox Most recent service carried out (Feb '19) by marque specialist Stewart Roden Motors Supplied with a UK V5c, the original tool kit and tyre compressorManufactured from 2004 until 2009, the Ferrari F430 was the successor to the very successful 360M and, according to its creators, was at least 70% new compared with the previous model, itself a ground-breaker. Its aluminium structure was more rigid than the 360's, it had a new engine, a new F1 gearbox, a new differential, and a brand-new chassis and, although the styling is obviously reminiscent of the 360M's, in reality, it's pretty much a ground-up design. Largely the work of Pininfarina, although overseen by Ferrari's design chief Frank Stephenson, the F430 still looks fresh today, more crisp-edged than the 360, with a strong hint of Enzoaround the surface-erupting tail-lights.Its all-new 4.3-litre V8-engine, with four valves per cylinder instead of the 360's five, and chain camshaft drive instead of belts, with a consequential reduction in service costs, has a variable-valve-timing system lifted straight from the Enzo's V12, dry-sump lubrication, a very high compression ratio (11.3:1), a variable airflow plenum chamber, and an enormous electronic brain making the decisions in the form of not one, but two, Bosch Motronic ME7 ECUs. At 483bhp, it boasts 21% more power than the 360, exceeding even that of the mighty (and turbocharged) F40, whilst the torque spread is extraordinary for an engine keen to howl beyond 8500rpm. All of these factors contribute to a 0-62mph time of just 3.7 seconds and a maximum speed in excess of 196mph.The advancements in the 430 continued with the 'Manettino', the steering wheel-mounted selector for stability systems, damping, shift speed, and throttle response. Additionally, there's the 'E-diff', whosecalibrations this alters, a clever, clutch-controlled active differential that sorts out waywardness, not by inhibiting one rear wheel, but by pouring more torque into the other. Ferrari reckons that it's worth three seconds a lap at the Fiorano test track, and it certainly helps make the F430 a far more forgiving machine than the 360, and a car of supremely subtle and keen responses.Offered here is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive 2005 Ferrari F430 Berlinetta with the desirable manual gearbox. Finished in Argento Silver the interior is trimmed in red leather.

Dating from 1991 and classically finished in Rosso and Crema with Rosso carpetsThe extensive accompanying paperwork suggests a genuine 15,180 miles from newHistory file includescopy invoices, previous MOTs, SORN docs (2009-2013) and previous owner statementBeing prepared for sale by specialist Bob Houghton to include, Belts, Service, new Clutch and MOT When Ferrari introduced the Testarossa in Paris in 1984, it was regarded as possibly the best car they had ever built but, whilst the design was spectacular, it was not considered to be as sensually beautiful as numerous GT Ferraris of the past. As a complete departure, Pininfarina had designed a modern, aerodynamic and efficient body shape, immediately recognisable by its very distinctive side 'strakes' unlike anything else seen in the post-war period. The name 'Testarossa', literally Redhead, became synonymous with Ferrari sports racing cars in the 50s and 60s and was resurrected at the launch of this new model at the Porte de Versailles in1984.Housing a 4.9-litre V12 engine producing 390bhp, the car was capable of a respectable 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 196mph. Produced between 1984 and 1991, some 7,177 Testarossas were made in total. Once again, time showed Pininfarina's design to be durable, and throughout the eighties, the distinctive 'strakes' were echoed in other design disciplines from cars to kettles.However, although the design may have seemed to be 'of the moment', the Testarossa proved itself to be a well-built car, and despite its 'Eiger-rivaling' list price, turned out to be Ferrari's most successful model ever. Today it's a design icon, symbolic of eighties culture, and despite a quieter year or two, its popularity is returning rapidly. It's not a surprise really since the Testarossa offers a rare package of serious performance, practicality, and reasonable comfort and although heavy at low speeds, its confidence-inspiring handling at high speed becomes almost addictive.The paperwork accompanyingthis splendid 1991 Testarossa suggests a genuine 15,180 miles from new. When purchased by our vendor around six months ago, he was given some detailed history by the previous owner who had purchased the car in May 2013. Apparently, the owner previous to him, who had owned it for eight years, lost the Service Book during an office move. He ordered a replacement straight away and contacted both Greypaul and Dick Lovett in Cardiff who agreed to place retrospective stamps in the replacement book, however, he never got around to doing anything about it. I imagine that the records are still in the individual dealer's systems so it should still be possible to arrange this. The service information in the 'new' service book is as follows;09/10/03 10,60917/05/05 11,93417/05/07 13,94022/11/10 14,43713/06/13 14,598The current indicated mileage is 15,180 and, helpfully, there is a list of MOTs going back to 2002, SORN dates, a list of most of the previous keepers and some of the previous registration numbers.The Ferrari remains in the sort of fabulous condition you would expect from such a tiny mileage and is currently being prepared for sale by respected specialist Bob Houghton in Cheltenham to include, fresh Belts, a full service, a new Clutch, and an MOT.

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.
