1985 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalve

One of the most collectible 308s and showing a mere 10,318 warranted miles from new, this Ferrari is presented in superb untouched condition showing only minimal signs of use.

The current vendor has owned the car since 1987 and is only the third owner in its lifetime. Presented with the original handbooks, extensive MOT and service history, the car will be taken to Terry Keys Ferrari Specialists to undergo a cambelt service prior to the sale and will be presented for auction with a fresh MOT.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a one of the rarest and most sort after variations of the iconic 308 with low ownership and collector mileage. Don’t miss out.

Estimate (£): 80,000 - 90,000

1989 BMW E30 M3 Johnny Cecotto

A hugely desirable Cecotto Limited Edition, number 230 of a 505, this stunning BMW M3 is finished in Macau Blue with contrasting black leather interior.

Recently the subject of a £4700 overhaul by well-known BMW specialist Classic Heroes, we are told that the mileage of just under 82000 miles is warranted and is supported by previous MOT certificates and service bills from both the UK and Germany.

Sold with an MOT until July 2015, this really is a stunning motoring icon that is ready to be shown or driven and enjoyed in equal measures.

Estimate (£): 35,000 - 40,000

1982 Lynx Eventer V12 HE

This incredibly rare car, one of just 67 produced, is a shooting brake version of Jaguar's XJS V12 HE.

This important 1982 example was the first to be sold to the public. 1 HOP was also used extensively in Lynx marketing featuring in the factory brochure and magazines of the time. Copies of the original brochure and press cuttings on the car are included in the substantial history file.

The car is offered for sale having been in storage for the last 15 years and is in need of restoration.

Estimate (£): 25,000 - 30,000

2011 Fiat 500 Stirling Moss 722 Tribute

This 2011 Fiat 500 is a truly unique vehicle. The car is a tribute to Sir Stirling Moss' famous 1955 Mille Miglia victory in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR (722) and was created by a close friend of the motor racing legend.

The car has been signed by Sir Stirling on the dash and headrests and sports his famous 722 number on the doors, bonnet and boot lid. The silver paint is presented in superb order and the luxurious red leather interior is unmarked, as one would expect from a car that has covered only 8,750 miles. The engine is a twin air turbo diesel and whilst very pokey indeed, it maintains excellent fuel efficiency, ideal for city driving.

The car was last serviced 1,000 miles ago and is ready to be driven and enjoyed. A fantastic tribute to Sir Stirling and his iconic 1955 Mille Miglia victory, this little car could be yours to drive away.

Estimate (£): 9,000 - 12,000
