  • Just 2,083 of these MG J2 were produced between mid-1932 and early 1934, with the car representing everything that was of a basic sports car of its time. The chassis layout follows that of the successful C type, otherwise known as the Montlhery Midget, a direct derivative from the M type. Power comes from the 847cc, overhead-camshaft Wolseley-derived engine with the car incorporating things such as a large rear mounted petrol tank which the spare wheel straps onto, centre lock wire wheels and remote-control ...

  • Introduced in the autumn of 1959, the Bentley S2 appeared externally unchanged from the S-Type predecessors, though the performance was considerably enhanced by the new 6,230cc aluminium-alloy V8 engine. Although wider and shorter than the ‘six’ it replaced, the new power unit fitted relatively easily within the engine bay, relocation of the steering box from inside to outside of the chassis frame being the most obvious alteration to the previous arrangements. Immensely successful both in the ...

  • Starting out as a 3.2 Carrera, the Porsche has been reimagined as a back date to capture the essence of the 1970s. Commissioned in 2008, the body was stripped back to bare metal and all corrosion has been dealt with accordingly, including new panels being fabricated and all door frames and seals have undergone anodizing. The gearbox and engine have been subject to a full rebuild, which sees the car uprated from a 3.2 to a 3.4 completed with a bespoke exhaust system and electrical steering conversion. The ...

  • To the Continental's existing qualities of pace and elegance, the Flying Spur added four-door practicality, a more spacious interior and a generously proportioned boot. The S-Type's new box-section chassis incorporated improved brakes and suspension and an enlarged (to 4,887cc) and more powerful version of the existing inlet-over-exhaust six-cylinder engine. The Continental came with a higher compression ratio, shorter radiator, power assisted steering and higher gearing and, for a time at least, ...

  • Bodied by Bromley specialist James Young, the Mk VI was produced from 1946-1952, Bentleys first post second world-war offering. This semi razor-edged style with ultra thin windscreen pillars originated in 1939 and proved very successful when re-introduced post-war. Front and rear wings keep their separate identities, whilst an upright radiator grille sits at the forefront. 16-inch steel disc wheels have replaced previous wire wheels, with the front and rear doors hinged on a centre pillar. The ...
