  • In 1954, Alfa Romeo launched the 2nd series (aka Tipo 1308) of the elegant 1900 CSS with full aluminium body from Touring. It was again built following the patented Superleggera construction, but the changes were recognisable at first glance. The air intakes with integrated foglights and indicators now had aluminium surrounds, similar to the previously presented Pinin Farina coupé. The rear side windows and rear window were bigger, to increase allround visibility and to create a more stylish look ...

  • Mercedes introduced the Paul Bracq styled W111 Coupé and Cabriolet in late 1960. This stylish model could seat four adults in all comfort, and had all the luxury equipment from the S-Class saloons. Initially only available with the 2,2 litre straight six engine, it was a comfortable cruiser and very reliable. The superb example we are offering for sale was delivered at the end of 1963 in New York to famous mobster and movie director Pasquale "Pat" di Cicco. He was a famous character in the American ...

  • From 1966 to 1969, the Ford GT40 took all comers at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and came away with four straight wins, including a 1-2-3 finish in 1966. The GT40 is one of the most iconic racing cars ever, and an original is sure to generate some buzz when it changes hands. A Ford GT40 Roadster is something completely different, however. Ford only made 4 Roadsters, and these cars are a very rare sight on the racetrack today. The example we are offering for sale is constructed by a well known GT40 ...

  • The BMW 2002 was one of the cars that saved BMW as a brand, and it played an important role in putting BMW on the map as a manufacturer of drivers cars. With the 2002, BMW introduced a well developed sports coupé which was much more practical than similar competitors. BMW’s “Neue Klasse” was the key to the company’s survival and its ability to define its future. It became one of the most important models in the history of BMW, as the "02" series was conceived as a proper drivers car from ...

  • The Bentley T1 has always been the rarer sister car to the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. 1 out of 10 examples was a Bentley, and technically there was no difference between both cars. The Bentley was often sold to people who intended to drive by themselves (and not driven by a chauffeur), and had a more rounded bonnet to suit the Bentley grille. Our example was delivered new by Franco Brittannic Autos Ltd in Paris, and first registered on the 6th of September 1969 by a certain Mr. Paul Ueberschlag. ...

  • Now this is a very special car. This Aston Martin DB4 Series III was delivered new in 1961 by Rémy Mannès (the Aston Martin importer for the Benelux countries at the time) to its first owner in Amsterdam. The car was ordered in Snow Shadow Grey with black hide, and had some interesting options specified : overdrive, electric window lifts, oil cooler and a heated rear window. It was an original European specification car with LHD steering. In 1975, the first Dutch owner passed the car on to his ...

  • Interest for the Jaguar E-Type is continuously growing as the 60 years celebrations of this iconic sportscar are happening this year. It must have a lot to do with the fact that it is still one of the most beautiful cars ever made. On top of that, it is a very well engineered sportscar, which offered similar (or better) performance compared to the exotics from the likes as Ferrari or Aston Martin at the time. Another important advantage of the E-Type is the fact that it still feels and drives like ...

  • The Porsche 911T was introduced as an affordable six-cilinder Porsche with an introduction price of just under 20.000 DEM. By using a 4-speed gearbox and solid disc brakes, and deleting anti-roll bars and some luxury interior trim, Porsche could keep the price down but also the weight of the car. This resulted in a kerbweight which was 35 kg lighter then the base 911, and offering almost similar performance figures with the 110 bhp 2,0 litre flat six. This example is finished in the desirable ...

  • The XK140 is the rarest and most sought after model of the Jaguar XK range. It combines the stylish coachwork of the XK120 with the technically more advanced chassis set up of the later XK150. These more refined XK140's have rack and pinion steering, which results in more precise steering and a much more comfortable driving position. Only 2789 examples of the XK140 Drophead Coupé were build, so it is quite a rare car as well. This particular example is completely restored at the end of the nineties, ...

  • Although closely related to the Ferrari 348, the F355 was a massive step forward and also heralded the return of the beautiful Ferrari after the brash brutality of the 1980s machines. In developing the new F129B V8 engine for the F355, Ferrari had looked to its contemporary V12 F1 programme, adopting five-valve-per-cylinder heads that helped raise the rev limit to a stunning 8500rpm. Titanium rods featured, too, while a 2mm increase in bore took the overall capacity from 3.4 to 3.5 litres. The result ...

It has the sought after Safari front windows, and has the correct folding cloth sunroof. The last owner made it even more "flower power" by adding some flower stickers on the car, but these are easily removable if required. These beautiful VW Split-window buses are very much collector items today, and finding one in this beautiful ...

  • The BMW 2002 Turbo was launched at the 1973 Frankfurt Motor Show, and it was quite a sensation. It was BMW's first turbocharged production car and one of the very the first turbocharged cars available for road use. The blown engine produced 170 bhp at 5,800 rpm and 240 Nm of torque. It was basically a 2002 tii engine with a KKK turbocharger and a compression ratio of 6.9:1 in order to prevent engine knocking. The Kugelfischer mechanical fuel injection from the 2002 tii remained but received an integrated ...

  • This very early Ford Mustang, aka 1964 1/2 model, came from the San José production line on the 27th of July 1964. These sought after first modelyear cars were only available with a Coupé or Convertible body, and were different in many details from the later modelyears. This specific example is probably one of the best Mustangs in the world. It was completely restored by the French Ford Mustang Club to original specification, and is correct in every single detail. This restoration is completely ...

  • Now this is quite a special Jaguar. First of all, it is the rarest of all XK versions : the XK140 DHC. In total only 2789 units were made, and that makes it today the most sought after XK for collectors. It combines the pure lines of the XK120, in combination with the more sophisticated underpinnings of the later XK150. Most importantly, it offers a much better driving position compared to the XK120, which is difficult to drive for taller people. This example is completely restored and upgraded ...

The project started early 2018, was finished almost one year later and the result is absolutely stunning. Our car is finished in Gris Palladium (AC108a - the darker version as this is the only correct colour for this modelyear) in combination ...

  • A Maserati 3500 GT is not your typical race car, despite the fact that this stylish GT designed and constructed by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera had an engine derived from the famous Maserati 350S racers. However one day an Italian gentleman decided to build a competition version based on this lovely grand tourer, and the result was quite stunning. And so in 1983 this unique Maserati was rebuilt for competition purposes, and only used for historic racing since. It looks incredibly cool in ...

  • A Jaguar E-Type FHC is a design icon, and probably one of the most beautiful sportscars ever made. When it came on the market in 1961, it must have been a sensation seeing one on the road. The E-Type was a very advanced sportscar, and an instant hit in the swinging sixties. This sporty 3,8 Litre FHC from 1964 was completely restored 15 years ago, and upgraded with some fast road modifications. Finished in beautiful Silver metallic with a full leather interior in Suede Green. During the restoration, ...

  • With only one year of production, the Mercedes 250 SL is the rarest of the “Pagoda” series W113. The 250SL offered the early styling of the 230SL, but with the noticeably increased performance of the 2,5 litre straight six engine. Other improvements on the 250SL included four wheel disc brakes, improved engine cooling, and an extra 17 liters of fuel capacity. And what makes this particular 250SL extremely special is the factory equipped ZF 5-Speed transmission : of the 5196 examples of the 250SL ...

On top of that, it was delivered new in France and has a kph counter instead of the more common mph one.

The paint had a nice patina which we tried to keep intact. The original and beautifully patinated "Wright" ...

  • The Ford GT40 was the answer from Henry Ford to the motorsport domination of Ferrari. Developed from the Lola Mk6 and using the 289 ci Ford V8 engine, the car was ready for its first race in May 1964. These early attempts were not very succesful due to reliability problems, and Carroll Shelby was hired to reorganise the racing department. In February 1965, the first win was a fact and from that moment the GT40 became the racecar to beat in any important championship. Ford won the Le Mans 24 hours ...

Car interiors come rarely in such a nicely patinated condition. Everything functions so well on this car, and it oozes that impeccable fifties atmosphere as we never have experienced before.

It's rather light and comes with a torquey and powerful 2,2 litre Triumph engine producing 188 bhp on the dyno. The car has been owned for more then 20 years by the same owner, and was mainly used for rallyes and hillclimbs. In 2010, the Morgan was rebuild for racing and constructed as an exact copy of the 1962 Le Mans class winner driven by Chris Lawrence. The car has been quite successful ...

  • This is a fantastic example of the legendary Citroën SM. A car which has been maintained well during its life, and well documented with many invoices. It has received all the necessary upgrades to make it reliable, and it looks absolutely stunning in this colour combination. Equiped with RGB "Resin" wheels and fitted with brand new and correct Michelin XWX tyres. Definitely one of the best you will find, and a true collectors car.

  • The Citroën DS is probably one of the greatest automotive designs of the twentieth century. Conceived in the early fifties, it still looks remarkably futuristic. It offers a very comfortable ride because of its revolutionary hydraulic suspension, and a luxury interior with proper sofas in the front and rear. There are many DSes on the market, but finding one in this magnificent original condition is very rare. Apart from a repaint in its original colour "Beige Albatros", this car is still in ...

  • Welcome to the weird world of German bubble cars. The KR175 was the first model introduced by Messerschmitt in 1953 for the mostly broke German motoring public. Messerschmitt was facing a ban on airplane production after World War II, and the KR175 (KR stands for "Kabinenroller") was their first attempt to produce a (micro) car. It has a 175 cc two-stroke engine producing 9 bhp, and top speed should be 90 kph if you are brave enough. The KR175 was produced from 1953 until the end of 1955, and was ...

  • This is a great project to build an historic racecar. The Grantura MkIII is eligible for almost any event, including Le Mans Classic and Goodwood Revival. Finding an original Grantura MkIII from 1963 (including corresponding paperwork) is not easy, and for that reason this is quite an opportunity to get a nice FIA racer build. This example with chassisnr 9/667 is still all original, but is missing the engine and gearbox. For historic racing, this car will need an early MGB engine and gearbox, which ...
