1999 FERRARI 550 MARANELLO
Finished in Rosso Corsa with contrasting Crema Hide With Bordeaux Carpets, Climate Control, Electric Seats, Red Calipers, Carpeted Parcel shelf, Stunning condition With Full-Service    History With a Service being recorded every year, 1 Of Only 457 UK RHD's, Stunning condition and has just been fully serviced by ourselves.

The 550 Maranello was unveiled to the world at Germanys Nurburgring race track in 1996. It had been more than 20 years since Ferrari had last produced a two-seat Grand Tourer (the final examples of the 365 GTB/4 Daytona, but the 550 Maranello has proven itself as a worthy successor.

Its looks are a world away from the wide, mid-engined F512M that preceded it, but the 550 is now rightly regarded as a Pininfarina classic. The 5.5-litre V12 first used in the 456 GT was revised by Ferraris engineers to produce 485 bhp in the 550 Maranello, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Its performance is seriously impressive, even in the context of today's supercars: 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds, and a top speed of 199mph.

1986 PORSCHE 911 3.2 CARRERA TARGA SUPERSPORT

FACTORY SPECIFICATIONS INCLUDE- SUPER SPORT EQUIPMENT (TURBO LOOK), LEATHER INTERIOR, LEATHER STEERING WHEEL, FRONT SPORTS SEATS WITH ELECTRIC ADJUSTMENT, CENTRAL LOCKING, TOP TINTED WINDSCREEN,  16” FUCHS WHEELS WITH PAINTED WHITE CENTRES, HEADLAMP WASH, LUGGAGE COMPARTMENT CARPET TRIMMED IN BLACK VELOUR, REAR SEAT BELTS.
This is a real opportunity to own probably the best 911 Super Sport Edition Coupe. It has an extremely low mileage, with its first owner enjoying the vehicle for the first 30 years. The last-of-the-line in traditional Porsches, these Carrera 3.2’s are the best way to deliver the famous air-cooled old-world Porsche driving experience. Evoking a time before power steering and other driving aids altered modern Porsches forever, this Porsche offers today’s lucky driver the authentic driving experience that made Porsche 911’s legendary.
The 911 3.2 had a redesigned engine inlet and exhaust system, along with the fitment of a service-free Digital Engine Management ignition system (DME), in conjunction with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel metering. This resulted in a significant increase in engine performance but a significant reduction in fuel consumption, through better engine efficiency and fuel cut-off when coasting. With a capacity of 3.2 litres, and a high compression ratio of 10.3:1, the air-cooled 6-cylinder, the horizontally opposed engine produces an output of 230 bhp, at 5,900 rpm. Maximum torque is 284 Nm at 4,800 rpm, and the maximum speed, limited by electronic fuel cut-out, is 152 mph. Acceleration to 60 mph was achieved in under 6 seconds. This Super Sport Equipment or SSE model is the popular Turbo-look variant, which combined the normally aspirated air-cooled 6-cylinder engine with the Turbo’s looks. The style that resembled the Porsche 930 Turbo with wide wheel arches and the distinctive “tea tray” tail spoiler also featured the stiffer Turbo suspension and the superior Turbo braking system as well as the wider Turbo wheels.
Supplied new by Swinford Motors (Midlands) Porsche, Stourbridge, the vehicle is as complete as one could imagine, with a wonderful service history file and its original sales invoice for £37143.88 The file includes its original book pack, service invoices and original paperwork. An ultra-low mileage example of the classic SSE that will be a genuine pleasure to own and show.  A comprehensive 12-month warranty will also be included.

1961 JAGUAR E-TYPE

Chassis No: 15


The Jaguar E-type was first unveiled to the World at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show and caused such a sensation that customers were literally queuing at Jaguar Showrooms to acquire one. By combining the fabulous aerodynamic design of Malcolm Sayers with Sir William Lyon’s intuitive styling, it was one of the most desirable sports cars of the swinging 60s and combined the latest technology, beautiful styling and refined high performance. Early production cars were extremely difficult to obtain unless you were fortunate enough to be considered a person of special interest to Jaguar and their partners.

One such individual was Bruce McLaren, a young and extremely talented Formula One driver from New Zealand. In March 61, McLaren was just 23 years old, living in the United Kingdom and driving in Formula One for the Cooper Factory Team alongside Australian Jack Brabham. McLaren had already become the youngest ever driver to win a Formula One race at the United States Grand Prix in 1959.
These special attributes were enough for Bruce to be chosen to receive one of the very first Jaguar E-Type Roadsters produced. That car was Chassis 15, the car offered here.
One of the first batch of 18 ‘priority list’ hand-built cars, of which 7 were road cars built to race specification, Chassis 15 was originally supplied to Bruce McLaren by the well-known Jaguar dealer Coombs of Guildford. John Coombs, along with Peter Berry and Tommy Sopwith, was one of three race team owners to be allocated early delivery of E type Roadsters from the factory by Lofty England. The three teams had a pair of E types each, one of which was the modified ZPS37/24 racing car whilst the other was the 'on show' paddock and road car. Chassis 15 was dispatched to Henlys and supplied to Coombs of Guildford in July 1961, registered 406 VPC. Bruce can be seen driving chassis 15 in the paddock during the 1961 TT meeting at Goodwood in the recently released film about his extraordinary life. His legacy continues to this day with the McLaren Formula One Team and McLaren Cars of Woking. 'McLaren Automotive' was founded in 1963.
Acquired by JD Classics in early 2016 from long-term ownership in Australia, chassis 15 has recently completed an exhaustive 4500 hour JD Classics restoration to factory original specification. All of the rare early features including outside bonnet locks, welded in bonnet louvres and flat floors have been painstakingly restored and the E-type retains a full set of numbers that match the factory build sheet and retains its original factory supplied hardtop. Finished in its original British Racing Green with body coloured wire wheels, Red hide interior and Blacktop it is presented in absolute Concours condition and is possibly one of the most famous non-competition E-Types in existence. Please contact us for further details.
