  • First of the highly successful ‘grand sports tourer’ inspired by project Java a decade earlier, the GT re-acquainted Bentley owners with the option of a more compact daily driver for the first time (arguably) since the 1950’s Mk 6 and R Type generation. Like many classics before it, the original ‘as launched’ has the purest looks and it is hard to imagine a more stylish modern classic within its price range. Finished in Dark Sapphire with Saffron hide complemented by Navy Blue hide top ...

  • Extensively publicised in its time, this unique 2.5 litre ‘sport’ (petrol) special was produced by Jaguar for the legendary England footballer Michael Owen’s personal use in Phoenix ‘Liverpool’ Red and Ivory Hide with red stitching. Michael Owen’s signature was laser printed at Jaguar to both the rear window and bird’s eye maple dashboard and the unique chromed ‘football’ gear knob commissioned by Jaguar bears the .player’s name and his shirt number 10. The car was subsequently ...

  • Only a handful in the world left like this, and with restoration costs prohibitive due to the size and quality of these vehicles, the so-so cars are likely to remain that way for the foreseeable future. Once an overlooked model, the Mk 10 holds its own in terms of finishes and presence against the most exotic 60’s luxury saloons and the ride quality is often judged to be markedly superior. These have appreciated nicely over the past decade as the classic car fraternity has woken up to their attributes. ...

  • The much anticipated XJ40 offered revolutionary advances in Jaguar motoring, and their crisp styling is now much appreciated within enthusiast circles. We can vouch for this Sovereign having known the history since new. It was supplied by Chelsea dealer Follett to a lady who resided overseas mostly while this car was stored underground in a carpark adjoining Harrods. We eventually purchased it from the family with just 12,000 miles covered and have supplied it to three subsequent owners. The last ...

  • A cutting-edge design 40 years ago which has journeyed from futuristic, beyond the unloved stage to cool-classic, Fitted with the throaty V8 which spawned from an American design, the TR8 was well received across the Atlantic where most were sold. This particular car looks barely sat in, and it was sourced from America by one of our clients and returned to its birth land to form part of a stunning car collection of pristine British sports cars. Since new it has spent most of its time in dry storage ...

  • These are beautifully appointed, and refreshingly uncomplicated- an ideal daily driver or one to polish up and cherish. This is a time-warp example being registered to just one owner since new and having covered only 15,000 miles. Despite such sparing use it has been returned to the main dealer every year and serviced- the book has almost run out of spaces for stamps! Interestingly, 30% of its total mileage was covered last year so the future owner has the reassurance that the cobwebs are blown ...

  • Celebrating its 18th birthday this year, this 75 is destined to attract ‘classic’ interest with retro- inspired styling and charming features which won many prestigious awards when the cars were current. We are pleased to offer a truly spotless and exceptionally original example which had one fastidious owner from new until 3 years ago covering just 16,000 miles. It was faithfully returned to the same dealership each year (though they became Nissan agents following the demise of Rover) and has ...

  • A car we sold in 1999 and again in 2013 so it is very well known to us. This has been cherished and extremely well maintained as the history file supports, and over the years the car has been subject to a programme of refurbishments to an exacting standard which have not detracted from the authentic feel this Mk 2 possesses. Our client (in 1999) briefed us to supply an unspoilt, straight and genuine, useable ‘big engine’ Mk 2 which could be steadily and sympathetically improved, and we sourced ...

  • Demand for a luxury cruiser with lesser proportions than the Mk 10 resulted in the miniaturised 420 version, but with a premium price tag and whispers of the impending XJ6, relatively few were sold. Notwithstanding this, they were the most luxurious and refined choice in the mid-size saloon Jaguar stable and therefore a very appealing classic choice today. This particular car changed hands when it was about a year old and remained with the second owner until 2011. A butcher by trade, it was a high-days ...

  • A piece of history that was completed to special order by Rolls Royce in a unique specification for delivery to HR Owen in May 1990. Unregistered for 7 months, we are advised the car was displayed by Rolls Royce at European Motor Shows such as Geneva and Earls Court. Upon eventual registration to HR Owen in January 1991, it was assigned the most prestigious and appropriate registration number imaginable ‘RR 1’. The first private owner resided mainly overseas and arranged to be chauffeur driven ...

  • To give some idea of the quality of this particular example, it was selected for exhibition in a museum near to Mercedes themselves in Stuttgart, from where it has recently returned. One of Mercedes’ most thrilling modern classics, this ‘Jeckell and Hyde’ sports coupe can deliver a thrilling ride from 525bhp and 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, whilst being equally satisfied cruising around town with its sumptuously appointed cabin offering a relaxing and luxurious drive. Such quality and engineering ...

  • Such a beautifully proportioned luxury touring coupe, the crisp lines of earlier models are arguably the prettiest, and the condition of this Jack Barclay supplied example is remarkable- the touch, look, aroma and handling of this one hasn’t faded from the day it was born having been in the hands of the same family until 2019. The original owner passed away when the vehicle was still almost new, but it was retained by his widow who was always chauffeur driven, though most of the time it was kept ...

  • From the mid 1930’s the ‘T’ Series was a stylish little open tourer offering their lucky owners the best of recreational motoring with practicality. Often finished in brighter colours, they stood out against the black and grey saloons as they roared past with the driver’s hair blowing in the wind. When production picked up again after the war, the re- modelled TD lost little, if any of that charm, though coil sprung front end, rack and pinion steering and a wider track transformed the driving ...

  • One of very few low mileage, authentic and unspoilt Mark 2 Jaguars with the desirable and most refined 3.4 litre option. There are two substantial files charting the car’s history from the original invoice, first tax disc, personalised factory correspondence with the local Coventry based owner to authorised dealer SH Newsome and Jaguar Cars. The car changed hands to the second owner in 2003, two more since, and we acquired the car directly from the last gentleman. The mileage is just 33,000 from ...

  • In the present market, Jaguar’s XK provides a winning choice for customers who favour a prestige sports car with classic lines and modern handling. With a dwindling supply of mollycoddled examples available, pristine XK’s are becoming scarce. And as to their looks, being a modernised E Type inspiration, which due to their increasing rarity is starting to turn heads, it is a sure-fire winner for the future. This is the one to hold, especially being the rarer ‘supercharged’ model which not ...

  • This completely cherished car was purchased by the second owner in 2004 and servicing has remained with the dealer from where it was acquired. Extras include but are not limited to AMG kit and exhaust, wood-rim steering wheel, rear folding seat, satellite navigation, parktronic front and rear. The car also has the very desirable ‘panoramic’ smoked glass sunroof with inner temperature sensors - perfect for hot weather motoring. The mileage is 123,000 since new, and yet it could easily pass for ...

  • One of the finest existing of these popular little convertibles, performing and handling well with their 1.8 16 Valve mid-engine. The second owner purchased this from a main dealer in 1999 and was an obvious marque devotee as the period styling modifications and enhancement show in the images (noting particularly the interior which is stunning). These should add to collectability and kudos with this car in the future. Cherished and barely used, the car was sold on and has been in the hands of enthusiast ...

  • The highly successful retro-shape mid-sized Jaguar saloon harking back to the 60’s classic models. This particular car is the improved second generation and arguably the finest vintage with the plusher revised interior, but retaining the more stylish rear design. This also benefits from the cheaper road tax. We purchased this Zircon Blue example from the original owner with an amazing annual main dealer service record, and even allowing for its incredible mileage of 18,000 from new judged it to ...

  • The larger engine configuration for these luxury compact convertibles, this goes like a rocket and handles like it is on rails. Being the second generation, this is arguably the best looking as a future classic particularly with the retro-style front and from a practical perspective the electric hood folding mechanism completes its task significantly faster than the original, and provides greater boot capacity. We have known this car since new as it was purchased by a business associate in the ...
