1973 PORSCHE 911 2.7RS 'TOURING'
ONE OF JUST 94 UK DELIVERED 2.7RS TOURINGS BUILT

The Porsche 911 2.7 RS has always been and remains today, one of the greatest cars for both road and track. A popular choice for the racing driver as transport from one European race circuit to the next, it is often considered the ultimate 1970s fast road car.
The Touring we have in our showrooms is a rare Right Hand Drive example, one of the 94 Right Hand Drive factory built cars, and one of only 5 RHD Tourings in Bahia Red.
Chassis 911 360 1022 was completed on the 6th April 1973 and supplied as an M472 Touring, C16 UK spec car. Factory fitted extras include an electric sunroof, drivers outside mirror, electric windows, heated rear screen and black leatherette seats with corduroy inserts.
This is a matching number, unrestored example and is exceptionally original. The mileage of 71,284 is documented with history from new. Autofarm first looked after the car for its original owner in 1975, and have maintained it for almost every owner since. The wheels are date stamped, the paint on the inside of the engine bay and under the bonnet is factory original. The trim is almost completely original, externally painted once by AFN in 1998.
The history file is extensive and includes the original Owner’s Hand Book, original (and mostly complete) Service Record booklet, as well as the Certificate of Originality from Porsche confirming that this is, indeed, a fully matching numbers car.
It is coming out of the long-term ownership, the current owner having bought it in 1999. A full service and detail were recently completed by Autofarm.
This is not a restored car; it is an unmolested 2.7 RS Touring that retains so many original factory details often lost in those that have been raced, rallied and restored. A rare opportunity and one for a serious collector of the Porsche marque who values originality.

SUNNINGDALE CLASSICS
495 CHESTER ROAD, LITTLE ASTON, ALDRIDGE 
WEST MIDLANDS WS9 OPY


1924 AC ROYAL with DICKEY SEAT

This 1924 AC Royal two-seater was first registered MN 3513 in October 1924 in the Isle of Man, the car came to the mainland in 1962 and was re-registered XFR 513. Between 1962 & 2014  it’s had only three owners and spent some time on display in a Yorkshire car collection. 
The engine was rebuilt with many new parts (pistons, clutch, timing chains, exhaust, etc) and the crank assembly balanced to produce a smooth, lively engine.
It is not known when the bodywork was restored, but it is in very sound condition, surprisingly attractive in its brown and beige colour scheme. The carpets were replaced recently and have tailor-made coir covers to protect them when the car was used in inclement weather. The car also has a dickey seat. 
The cream leather upholstery is nicely mellowed, being in that sweet spot of being worn in without being worn out. The hood, too, is good having been recently reconditioned and comes with a matching cover.
The Royal is a pretty, lightweight vintage car,  It is eligible for VSCC Light Car and Edwardian Section events and has been carefully recommissioned by an enthusiast, and is ready to be used and enjoyed.
Also has a possible transferable plate

1931 BUGATTI TYPE 50


Chassis Number: 50123
Described by Road & Track magazine, July 1958 as ‘a sports car of Herculean size and strength’, Bugatti’s Type 50 built on the characteristics of its sibling, the luxurious Type 46. Almost double the price of Type 46, it seems a little surprising that the Type 50’s engine, although largely the same as the Type 46, was actually reduced in capacity. However, this was for a very good reason as it allowed for a twin-cam set up which empowered the Type 50 to reach high enough revs per minute to achieve 200 brake horsepower; truly remarkable for its time!         
Made between 1930 and 1934, a mere handful of examples of these almost 5 litres, 8 cylinder supercharged sports racing cars were built by the French great. Marketed and designed as a road model, the Type 50s were nonetheless raced at Le Mans from 1931 to 1935, showing themselves to be strong and capable contenders. As Barrie Price writes in his book Bugatti Type 46 & 50 – The Big Bugattis,‘Certainly no other production luxury car in 1930 had such an advanced ‘racing car’ specification, except the Duesenberg SJ from America.’
As one would expect for such an important car in Bugatti’s portfolio, only the best body options were offered and fitted to the Type 50. This Bugatti, 50123, was fitted with roadster coachwork designed and built by Bugatti in its Molsheim factory. As such, it is one of only four Type 50s to be clothed in Bugatti’s roadster coachwork in a period and is one of just two surviving examples.
50123’s first owner was the famous artist Monsieur AndrĂ© Derain of Paris, although by 1935 the Bugatti had returned to Alsace and into the hands of its second owner, Jean Trivier who was the owner of a large brewery in the Vosges. In June 1937, 50123 crossed the channel to England to be with its new owner, Jack Lemon Burton. Burton used the Bugatti as his personal transport until the outbreak of war in 1939. In 1942, Burton sold 50123’s engine to American Eri Richardson to replace the damaged engine in Richardson’s Type 46 but after the war Burton installed another Type 50 engine into 50123, which he had acquired from France, returning the Bugatti to factory specification once again.
The Type 50’s next owner was John C Erskine-Hill of South Kensington in whose name it was listed in the 1954 Bugatti Book by Eaglesfield and Hamton which contained the first published register of Bugatti motor cars. Soon after this 50123 was advertised for sale in Motorsport magazine and it was believed that American tyre manufacturer and fabled collector, Ann Klein, subsequently purchased the Bugatti.
There followed a continuous American history, with the Bugatti eventually passing to the legendary collection of the late Henry Petronis, who had the Type 50’s chassis and coachwork comprehensively restored by David George, with its mechanical work being overhauled by respected Bugatti and Alfa specialist Chris Laden. The car was last shown publicly by Laden at Pebble Beach in 2010 where it received a second in class award. Its current owner was attracted to the Type 50 rather more for its potential as a strong and powerful road rally car and, as such, has spent considerable time and money with Phil Reilly and Company, really bringing the Type 50 up to its full driving potential, which includes having new wheels recast, along with chassis and shock absorber fine-tuning to get the balance of the Bugatti just right. We at Fiskens can confirm that having driven 50123, it is all we expected Bugatti’s legendary Type 50 to be; easy to drive with beautiful brakes and steering, accompanied by lots of low-down torque. With its supercharged 5-litre engine, it offers, as one would expect, a wide range of performance! 
Bugatti Type 50s are rare beasts indeed and the Jean Bugatti-designed roadster coachwork on this one makes it even rarer. The height of both luxury and performance in its day, this was truly a supercar of the era. Accompanied by a full history file and report by renowned Bugatti authority, David Sewell, 50123 would be welcomed at all the best Concours, tours and rallies where it is sure to make a glamorous and dashing impression.
