2016 Gardner Douglas T 70, 3,800 miles, £79,750 For Sale

A barely run-in T70 in mid-blue with satin matt black detailing. First registered in June 2016. 3,800 miles at April 2019. Car gets positive attention wherever it goes. My wife’s arthritis makes getting in / out painful so our planned road trips must be in something else. The dream has to go.
For a track assessment of the GD demonstrator check out Steve Sutcliffe's Autocar video comparison with a McLaren MP4-12C, available on (Media / GDTV).
Also there, see a sub 8 min Nurburgring lap in a road legal version with 600+bhp. That’s more power than mine but the thrill is the same.

1990 Aston Martin Replica Circa 1930's based on TD kit

This is an excellent example of the marque with added benefit of modern, simple mechanics. In British Racing Green it has a nippy 1800cc engine. It is a head turner in any situation. Sorry to let it go but family circumstances dictate that it sadly needs to be parted with.
