2005 FORD GT
MileageDelivery miles
Body Style2-Door Coupe
Engine Capacity5410cc
Chassis No.400177


This Ford GT is surely the very best example in existence, as it has never been registered, is showing only delivery miles, and is in the most desirable colour combination of Black with a painted Silver stripe. The car was ordered new with all four factory options available, the McIntosh sound system, lightweight forged wheels, grey-painted brake callipers, and painted racing stripes, and it comes complete with its original window sticker, handbooks including the service book, a leather wallet, a spare key, a car cover, and battery conditioner. A Ford GT is extremely desirable, and the opportunity to own one in the ultimate specification that has never been used is a fantastic investment opportunity!

1961 “Flat Floor” Jaguar E-Type
8,000 Miles From New
The ultimate collectors E-Type. A matching numbers, totally restored, RHD, flat floor, outside bonnet lock roadster - remarkably the car has covered only 8,000 miles since new, has had only 2 owners and retains its original hardtop. This astonishing E-Type had spent all of its life in warm and dry climates until repatriated by DK and totally restored, returning the car to the condition in which it left the factory in July 1961. The car is presented in its original Cream with Red leather. A completely unique and exceptional part of motoring history.
Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS Touring
Recent Major Overhaul
This factory RHD and UK supplied RS Touring is finished in its original Grand Prix White with Blue script and wheels. The car has spent much of its life in a dry southern hemisphere climate with just one owner since 1988. The car is highly original and retains its original owner’s manual, tools and the incredibly rare, original Carrera RS supplement. In November 2015 the car had a comprehensive, major “engine out” service to ensure that this car is in need of absolutely nothing and is presented in excellent condition. 
Ferrari Testarossa
1,000 Miles From New
This stunning single owner Right Hand Drive Testarossa was manufactured in 1991 and is finished in its original Rosso Corsa with a Nero leather interior. Remarkably, the car has only covered only 1,100 miles from new. It has been regularly maintained since new and in April of this year had a major service undertaken by a main dealer at which time the cambelts were replaced. This astonishing car presents superbly well, with leather wallet, service books, invoices and toolkit all present. Such low mileage, one owner, examples are incredibly hard to find and this Testarossa is without doubt amongst the finest in existence.
Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona
Classiche Certified and Totally Restored
This UK supplied RHD Daytona (1 of 158 examples) is presented in its original colour combination of Argento with Blu Leather. Formerly part of one of the finest collections in the world, the car is Matching Numbers, Classiche Certified and presented with its original tools and books. Recently totally restored, this Daytona is a previous Concours winner and is presented in award-winning condition.

The Ferrari 488 GTB (Tipo F142M) is a mid-engined sports car produced by the Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari. It was launched on 3 February 2015, in advance of its world premi�re at the March 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The 488 GTB is a heavily re-engineered replacement for the Ferrari 458, sharing several design features and chassis measurements.

The 488 GTB is powered by a 3,902 cc (238 cu in) all-aluminium dry sump unit of the Ferrari F154 engine family. Turbocharged with two parallel ball-bearing twin-scroll turbochargers supplied by IHI and two air-to-air intercoolers, the compressor wheels are made of low-density TiAl alloy often used in jet engines to reduce inertia and resist high temperatures within the turbocharger. The engine produces 670 PS (493 kW; 661 hp) at 8000 rpm and 760 N�m (561 lb�ft) of torque at 3000 rpm. This results in a specific power output of 126.3 kW (171.7 PS; 169.4 hp) per litre and specific torque output of 194.8 N�m (144 lbf�ft) per litre, both records for a Ferrari road car.

No small Ferrari has captured the imagination of aficionados and newcomers to the Maranello marque with such enthusiasm. Ferrari and their appointed styling house Pininfarina had created an icon. The new Dino 246GT was an absolute delight from all angles; its beauty, handling, sound, comparative affordability, and mid- engined layout was combined with unusually good all round visibility. Its reliability was said to be the first car from Ferrari that could safely be kept as the owner’s only car. The 246 Dino engine, with four overhead camshafts, was mounted transversely behind the driver and in front of the rear axle. Power to the wheels coming via drop gears to the transverse 5-speed gearbox, in unit with the differential and engine sump.
Introduced at the 1969 Geneva Motor Show, detail changes for the 246 included new seats, iron engine block, bolt on wheels, a steel body, more power, better torque and a lower price, a revelation in terms of road holding and stability, nothing had been made like this before. Handling was like that of a racing car although the car was more user friendly and reliable than the big V12s. Styled by Pininfarina, and stunning from every angle, the Dino must surely rank as one of Ferrari’s all time classics and without doubt an appreciating asset.
This is a very modern car and a real step in Ferrari history; it is the first model to be fitted with rack and pinion steering and mid-engine design. More generally it announced a new age for Ferrari as its concept and design, the 246GT was a much better car with a more powerful & torque engine and better road holding due to the longer wheel base. With its 195 HP it was able to reach 235 km/h as top speed and the kilometre in 27 seconds. The excellent chassis made the car much quicker than bigger ones and it is still a real enjoyment on small roads 40 years on. The interior is nice and refined, the large trunk and the high top speed made it also a real grand tourism car. The iconic Dino 246GT will remain as one of the best and nicest model built by Ferrari.
Our car was supplied on the 1st January 1972 to Mr JA Young of Caterham, Surrey by Maranello Concessionaires Ltd. Mr Young commissioned the car to be built in Giallo Fly with Nero interior and the factory option of electrically operated windows, as the car is presented for sale today.
Accompanying the Ferrari is a comprehensive chassis file that includes:
– Manufacturers invoices to Maranello Concessionaires Ltd
– Varies client correspondence from 1971
– Original Handbook, Warranty Card
Our car has completed a fresh restoration in 2011-2012 and now presents in superb order. Our post sale preparations will include full service and the issuance of Ferrari Classiche by an official factory authorised
Available for immediate inspection at our central London showrooms.

1935 ALVIS 3.5 LITRE - HYMAN Ltd (USA)


1935 ALVIS 3.5 LITRE

The Alvis Car and Engineering Company Ltd is a fascinating footnote in the annals of the British motoring industry. Founded in 1919 by Thomas George John, the company began with building components such as carburetors, stationary engines for farming and industry, as well as motor scooters – which they charmingly named the “Mobile Pup”. Alvis went on to produce an exceptional range of luxurious motorcars, and found great success in motorsport. Talented and creative engineers made their mark on the company, and it developed a reputation as a great innovator. They were responsible for some very significant firsts in the automotive world, the most notable being in 1933 with the very first production all-synchromesh gearbox and servo assisted brakes. Prior to that, they had experimented with front wheel drive, inboard brakes and supercharging on the model 12/75 of 1928. Yet for all of their innovation, Alvis remained somewhat under the radar and even today, does not seem to garner the same recognition as its contemporaries such as Bentley, Lagonda or even AC. Automobile production trickled on into the 1960s, but by that time Alvis was more known for its military vehicle production than automobiles. The Alvis Company was eventually acquired by Rover who then was swallowed up by British Leyland in the 1970s, altogether disappearing by the end of the decade.
The Alvis Motor Company completed development of its new 3571 cc engine in the latter half of 1935 as a replacement for the 2762 cc engine in its flagship Speed 20 Model.  The engine was planned for a new model to be introduced in 1936.  Unfortunately the new chassis wasn’t ready, so as an interim measure, a Speed 20 SC chassis was lengthened 5.5 inches, the new drive train was installed, and it was dubbed the 3 1/2 Litre. The 3 1/2 Litre was a response to clients desires for ever more luxurious and spacious coachwork. As bodies grew larger and heavier, Alvis rightfully offered those buyers who sought additional luxury an option of a more powerful engine that kept performance in line with what was expected of their cars. Only 63 3 1/2 Litre chassis were dispatched before the new Speed 25 replaced it for 1937.
The handsome example presented here is a 1935 3 1/2 Litre SA wearing very rare and desirable Vanden Plas Pillarless Saloon coachwork.  It was originally dispatched from the Alvis Works as a chassis to Vanden Plas in 1935, eventually destined for Charles Follett, Ltd, the London Alvis distributor, and is believed to carry the first production 3 1/2 Litre engine. One of only two VdP Pillarless saloons built on the chassis, this car has some unique features, Follett’s logo was circular design, and this motif was carried by VdP onto the door handles and the front wings which are skirted with a cycle - like crown.  It is believed that prior to it being offered by the dealer, this very car, chassis number 13097, was used on the Vanden Plas stand at the 1935 Olympia Motor Show where it was elegantly presented in its original black over beige leather. From London, it was assigned the English registration number JD 5942 and sold to its first owner in Essex, who only kept it for a brief period. The car’s ownership history is documented from 1935 through to the present day with only a few lapses.  The last owner was fastidious, keeping notes and every record and piece of correspondence from his purchase in 1986.  The history file is massive and includes repair and restoration receipts, correspondence between owners as well as via the Alvis Owner’s Club, photos of the car before and during restoration, as well as event photos. The car was subject of a feature article in The Classic Car in 2002, a copy of which is in the file. The original Alvis instruction manual, Alvis spares catalogue, Andre shock booklet, and Marles steering book accompany the car.  There are also copies of a period Alvis advertisement announcing the new 3 1/2 Litre, which show a drawing of this car. It is remarkable to find a car of this era with such history.
Records show it was partially disassembled at some point in the 1970s, and received a light restoration in 1976.  The car was once again restored some twenty years later in the UK by marque specialists Fisher’s Restoration and Earley Engineering. The owner’s dictate to the restorers were to keep the car as original as possible, and to not “over restore” it.  The ash framing in the car was replaced as necessary, and the car’s structure is very solid, without the alignment problems suffered by so many pillarless bodies. The deep burgundy main body does deviate from the original color scheme, but it looks very handsome against the black fenders and correct beige interior. The paint work has taken on a patina since completion but remains very presentable and attractive, very suitable for a tour car. Chrome and brightwork are attractive and the car wears many fine details such as trafficators in the C-pillars and a gorgeous radiator mascot. Vanden Plas was always best known for their luxurious saloon cars and this example does not disappoint. The beige leather and carpet remain very serviceable in spite of showing some wear and are more than suitable for an enthusiast who prefers a broken-in feel. The wood work on the dash and door caps is in very lovely condition, with no signs of heavy wear and a nice deep gloss to the finish. Correct original instrumentation remains in the dash. Under the bonnet can be found the fabulous 3 1/2 Litre six which is not only very attractively presented, but runs beautifully. Very correct and well detailed, the engine and bulkhead are clean and tidy, with a wonderfully patinated look to the fittings and fixtures.
This delightful Alvis is a rare and fabulously attractive example of this desirable pre-war sporting saloon car. The handsome and elegant lines would make this car suitable for the show circuit following some light restoration work, but perhaps more appropriately, this model is designated as a Full Classic by the CCCA, making it an ideal choice for touring.

*Requires re-commissioning
*The most famous of all 'James Bond' Aston Martins


  • Aston Martin's post-war evolution took a giant step forward in 1958 with the launch of the DB4. Classically proportioned, the Carrozzeria Touring-styled body established an instantly recognisable look that would stand the marque in good stead until 1970 and is still being referenced in today's Aston Martins. At its launch in October 1958, the DB4 marked a major turning point for Aston Martin as it was the first car of the David Brown era which neither used a chassis derived from the experimental Atom of 1939 nor an engine co-designed by W O Bentley. Moreover, it was the first Aston Martin to carry Touring's 'Superleggera' bodywork, in which light alloy panels were fixed to a supporting framework of light-gauge steel tubes. This method of body construction had been deemed incompatible with the DB2/4-type multi-tubular spaceframe, so engineer Harold Beach drew up an immensely strong platform type chassis. At the front, the DB4's suspension featured unequal-length wishbones instead of the DB2/4's trailing links, while the live rear axle was now located by a Watts linkage instead of the preceding Panhard rod.

    The Aston Martin DB4 was also the first of the DB models to employ the entirely new engine designed by Tadek Marek, which had first been seen at Le Mans the previous year in the DBR2. An all-alloy, twin-overhead-camshaft six like its predecessor, Marek's new 3,670cc engine featured 'square' bore and stroke dimensions of 92mm and developed its maximum power of 240bhp at 5,500rpm. The David Brown gearbox was a new four-speed all-synchromesh unit.

    Five (unofficially designated) series were built as the model gradually metamorphosed into the DB5. Introduced in July 1963, the latter boasted a 4.0-litre engine, this enlarged unit having been seen first in the Lagonda Rapide of 1961. Equipped with three SU carburettors, the '400' engine produced 282bhp at 5,500rpm and was mated to a four-speed/overdrive gearbox, a 'proper' ZF five-speed unit being standardised later.

    The DB5's distinctive cowled headlamps had first appeared on the DB4GT and the newcomer was the same size as the lengthened, 'Series V' DB4. Outwardly there was little to distinguish the DB5 from the last of the DB4s apart from twin fuel filler caps, though these had already appeared on some cars. Beneath the skin however, there were numerous improvements including alternator electrics, Girling disc brakes instead of Dunlops, Sundym glass, electric windows and an oil pressure gauge as standard equipment.

    From September 1964 the 314bhp, triple-Weber Vantage engine became available and was fitted to a total of 95 cars. The DB5 was also offered in convertible form (the 'Volante' name would not be applied to the soft-top Aston until the DB6's arrival) while independent coachbuilder Harold Radford offered a shooting brake conversion. 1,021 DB5s were manufactured between July 1963 and September 1965, a total that included 123 convertibles and 12 shooting brakes.

    The DB5 was the first and remains the most famous of all the 'James Bond' Aston Martins, having appeared in no fewer than five movies of the series, beginning with Goldfinger in 1964. Equipped with rocket launchers and sundry other gadgets, 007's DB5 was finished in Silver Birch with red interior, in which specification it was later issued by Corgi Toys.

    Chassis number '1579' was retailed via Plough Motors and sold new to R R C Walker of Corsley Garage, Corsley near Warminster, Wiltshire. This first owner was none other than Rob Walker, Johnnie Walker whisky heir and founder of the most successful privateer team in Formula 1 history, whose landmark achievements include the first ever F1 Grand Prix wins for Cooper and Lotus.

    Registered '877 EAM', the Aston was originally finished in Caribbean Pearl with dark blue Connolly leather interior, while chrome road wheels is the only item of non-standard equipment listed. Only one additional owner is listed on the copy build sheet: Lt Col Raymond Johnson-Ferguson of Eaglesfield, Dumfries, though the change is undated. The DB5 formed part of Lt Col Ferguson's private collection alongside his Aston Martin Ulster ('BJJ 527') and various David Brown tractors.

    '877 EAM' was acquired by Gordon Willey in October 1993. The only maintenance records on file consist of invoices for various works carried out by marque specialists Chris Shenton Engineering of Hanford, Staffordshire during October and November 2001 at 83,835 miles. In addition, there is a solitary MoT certificate on file, issued in May 2005 at 84,109 miles, together with a V5C registration document and further invoices relating to the car's storage at Jonathan Wood's premises from November 2011 onwards. Following its lengthy period out of use, careful re-commissioning will be required before this elegant 'Gentleman's Express' returns to the road.
