  • At some point, the Jaguar model E (the icon) had to be replaced! So at the International Motorshow in Frankfurt in 1975 its successor, the XJ-S (later XJS) was introduced as a Coupé. It was completely different from its predecessor, a classic Grand Tourismo, more opulent than sporty. The model E enthusiasts were disappointed but with 112,052 cars sold, this new model was a triumph. The XJ-S with 12-cylinder was particularly popular in the US and it was later also offered as a Targa. Finally in ...

  • Shortly before the war Bentley presented the MK V and it became the basis for the MK VI which was introduced in 1946. This was the first time one could order a complete car from Bentley! But they also still sold many chassis for customized designs. Our Bentley MK VI Cabriolet was built in 1949 and was tuned as a “Drophead Coupe (DHC)” by the body shop Park Ward. Its roof is electric. The first owner was A.J. Brown in England and in 1977 this magnificent convertible was sold to the US. In ...

  • The BMW 502 made history as the first German post-war automobile with an 8-cylinder engine. Its characteristics were conservative chassis, modern technology, and expensive. Only approx. 13,000 of these vehicles were sold. The model was a brand win for BMW but not an economic success. The beautiful convertibles were built by Baur in Stuttgart/Germany and Autenrieth in Darmstadt/Germany. According to the BMW archive, only 11 4-door convertibles were built. And apparently only 3 or 4 cars with the ...

  • After World War I the demand for larger cars, especially the ones with chauffeur, declined rapidly. So Henry Royce felt compelled to develop a smaller model, the "Twenty" which was introduced in 1922. Its outstanding performance for its size (100 km/h were possible!) made the Twenty very popular with its owners. The next version of this model was the 20/25 HP which was in production between 1929 and 1936. With 3,9827 cars the small Rolls-Royce was a big success. The body of our Rolls-Royce 20/25 ...

  • Alvis was founded in Coventry in 1919. From the beginning they produced modern sport cars, solid as a rock and with fantastic engines. The “Silver Eagle” with the famous 6 cylinder engine came in the end of the 20s. This engine was developed constantly. Our Alvis Tourer is a late example. The 2.5 litre engine with three carburettors has a lot of power. The open tourer is equipped with stronger brakes and the gorgeous Speed Twenty transmission. This family racer is ready to use and can be ...

  • At the 1992 Birmingham Motorshow MG – now part of Rover Group – first introduced the RV8. It was initial conceived as a a test and when the audience was thrilled, MG decided to build a small series. Superimposed on the magnificent concept of the 1995 MG-F with its four-cylinder mid-engine, a small sporty roadster was built. It was targeted against the Fiat Barchetta and the Mazda MX-5. The engine power of the lightweight roadster provides plenty of driving pleasure and remains an insider tip ...

  • The open version of the Ferrari 308, the Targa 308 GTS, was presented at the International Motor Show at Frankfurt in 1977. Until 1980 3,219 cars of this model were built, more than the coupé. Today, the 308 GTS is considered a classic Ferrari and endless driving fun, especially on winding roads, is guaranteed. Our Ferrari 308 GTS was delivered to the US. It has MATCHING NUMBERS and is an almost untouched original. This oldtimer was rated a "2" in its classic data evaluation.

  • At the Geneva Salon in March 1959 several manufacturers showed the new "trapeze line" that Pininfarina had created: BMC with the Austin A 55, Fiat with the models 1800 and 2100 and also Alfa Romeo. Daimler-Benz designed the new body with tail fin under the leadership of the design genius Karl Wilfert. When the car industry media was introduced to the new cars in August 1959 they raved about their understated elegance and its generous spacial design. Our Mercedes 220 SE b is the top model with ...

  • In the early 1960s the German designer Graf Goertz had the courage to approach Datsun. The goal was to develop a sports coupe primarily for the US market. He had proven his knack for exciting design with the BMW 507. Unfortunately, before he could finish, his contract with Datsun expired but he was still able to define the most significant design elements. The model was an instant success in the US, also because of its attractive price of $3,526. In Europe, however, the Datsun 240Z never made a ...

  • Jaguar’s large saloon, the MK VII, was introduced in 1950. Its marketing coined the slogan “Grace, Space, Pace”, a perfect description of its outstanding attributes. Its detailed design evolved from the MK VIII to the MK IX, its most mature model. Very fast at 220 PS and comfortable as an automatic. A little over 4,000 cars with left hand drive were manufactured. Our Jaguar MK IX hails from the US and has been completely restored by its current owner in Germany which increased its purchase ...

  • Paul Daimler was passionate about technology even as a child. The challenges his dad, Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach had with the management of the Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG), inspired Paul Daimer to join Austro Daimler in Austria.

Its engine had hanging and standing valves as well cardan transmission ...

  • In the 1960s the "PS race" with medium sized cars came from the US to Europe. Mercedes was in one of the leading positions with its 300 SEL 6.3. The effort was minimal: They took the body from the S-series and implanted the super strong engine from the Mercedes 600. The standard air suspension gave the high powered saloon flawless road positioning. The market welcomed the new luxury Mercedes with enthusiasm. Between July 1968 and September 1972 6,526 were built. Our Mercedes 300 SEL 6.3 was delivered ...

  • In the fall of 1968 the BMW 2800 CS Coupé came on to the market with a chassis that was cleverly updated from the 2000 CS. The sports coupé quickly became a crowd favorite, especially with its strong 6-cylinder and 3-liter capacity. Very soon the BMW 3.0 CSL dominated in touring car races and one of its most well known pilots was Hans Stuck. One of these CSLs was designed on graph paper as “high tech art” by the American artist Frank Stella. Our BMW 3.0 CSL Racing-Coupé got its extraordinary ...

  • The idea for a "Volkswagen" (car for the people) was widespread in the 1930s: Opel had the P4 and the Opel Olympia. But both were too expensive for most people. So Ferdinand Porsche was asked to develop a "Volkswagen": room for 4 passengers, max. 100 km/h speed and the ability to master a 30% climb. The first driveable prototype was done in February 1936 but all future plans were put on hold due to the war. But with the support of the forward thinking British Major Ivan Hirst production began in ...

  • Mercedes-Benz's Series 170 was always also available as a government model and a 170 OTP (Open Tourer Police) wasn't cheap at DM 10,650. That was a lot of money for a small series with only 530 vehicles which could not be sold to the general public. Only much later, when the series was retired from government service, did some of them get acquired by private customers. Our Mercedes-Benz 170 Da OTP has been with its current owner since 1969. The oldtimer has been thoroughly restored and regularly ...

  • No other than the small manufactory Officine Alfieri Maserati was brave enough in 1963 to put a full-blood sports engine into a luxury limousine. The engine, a V8 with 4.2 liter capacity, came from the race car 450 S and the legendary sports car 5000 GT. That's how the Maserati Quattroporte became the fastest 4-door limousine of its time with a body designed by Pietro Frua. Its low key shape was geared towards the lovers of "understatements" who wanted to set themselves apart from the masses. Only ...

  • Based on the technically revolutionary Alfetta Limousine Alfa Romeo presented the Alfetta GT in 1974, an avant garde, flat sports coupe with generous space proportions. In 1980 the renamed GTV was slightly modernized in style and interior and its premium models got the legendary V6 engine. This addition brought out the “V” (for “veloce” = fast in Italian) in an otherwise very balanced model and it provides great driving fun to this day! Our late series Alfa Romeo GTV 6 Coupe was delivered ...

  • The stunningly gorgeous Lancia Beta Coupe was introduced in 1973 and is based on the shortened version of the limousine but thanks to its front wheel drive this compact car comes with a spacious interior.

So for many of us classic car lovers the first series is the most beautiful, shining with many meticulous details in body and ...

  • To create an open sports car successor for the famous 300 SL and the very successful 190 SL was a challenging task. So when the brand new 230 SL arrived in 1963 the reviews were mixed. The modern Roadster was certainly an excellent backfill for the 190 SL but not the 300 SL. Six-cylinder engine, power steering, disk brakes and automatic transmission on demand are all technical details that are valid today. Our Mercedes-Benz 280 SL from the last series was delivered in 1969 by the Daimler-Benz ...

  • When Daimler-Benz introduced the 170 S in 1949 it represented the automotive premium class because of its chassis and perfect detailing, and despite its pre-war construction. It’s marketing slogan was “The car that doesn’t know bad roads!”. Given the road conditions at the time, that was quite the statement! Between March of 1949 and February of 1952 26,331 models were built before the slightly edited 170 Sb was introduced. Our Mercedes-Benz 170 S has an interesting story: It was first ...

  • For a long time, the Aston Martin was the gold standard for the handmade English sports car. It had become a bit of a dinosaur in the mid 80s so a new, less costly model was needed.

Ken Greenley and John Hefferman's design was selected. The existing V-8 engine was modernizwed and 4 valves per cylinder led to 340 powerful PS. The new design was first ...

  • For BMW, the break at the end of the Second World War was particularly harsh: The car plant in Eisenach was lost, and the plant in Munich was largely dismantled. Nevertheless, the automobile industry was reorganized in Munich in 1951/52. Unfortunately, BMW could hardly make money with the Isetta on the one hand and the big luxury saloons on the other. It was the small but modern BMW 700 that saved the company in the end. With the “new class” BMW returned to success in 1962. The BMW 501 with ...

After the last revision at the end of 1985, this series was exemplary in comfort, safety technology and workmanship. Sure, the V8 versions were a bit stronger and more powerful, but the agile and economical six-cylinder inline engine was a perfect match for this roadster. Then as now – often the first choice. This Mercedes 300 SL was first registered in Germany in 1986. The classic is healthy, ...

  • In the spring of 1968 Daimler-Benz introduced the fastest German saloon in serial production, the Mercedes 300 SEL 6.3. A long body and chassis with air suspension build an ideal foundation and it masters the high torque perfectly which an engine it borrowed from the Mercedes 600. This high performance saloon made a splash worldwide and naturally its target customer audience was small. During its 4-year production period only 6,526 models were built, not unlike the similar 300 SEL 3.5 of which only ...

Noteworthy: more Bentley S 1s were sold than the RR Silver Cloud I, the sister model. In 1959 the Bentley S 2 was introduced with almost the same body, but the all-new V8 engine with significantly more power. The ...

The model 230 was simply the more well rounded car. It became Mercedes’ second most produced car until 1945, right after the model 170.
