But for now read on for more on the cars that have been consigned so far.
1993 Jaguar XJ220
To say this is an incredibly special Jaguar is somewhat of an understatement. We are told by the vendor that chassis no 2207773 was built by TWR Jaguar in Oxford in 1992/3 before being dispatched to Denmark, Jaguar Dealer Nellemann. The car covered very little mileage in intervening years and is now ready to come back to the UK.
Reading a mileage of 24,000km, this car is as visual striking as it is all about power and drivability. Presented in its original colour of Jaguar Ice Blue this car has the looks to match the impressive drive. The car benefits from upgrades all made by XJ220 specialists Don Law of Staffordshire, who also serviced the car, including an engine upgrade (now 680 bhp), upgraded brakes and upgraded suspension. The end result is a car that drives and handles far better than the day it left the TWR factory.
Sold more than ready to go, and tested by our consignor, the car will pass any MOT/Tüv all over the world. Only 281 of these iconic supercars were ever built and cut an impressively exciting figure when compared with today's standard of supercar. With prices rising don't miss the opportunity buy one whilst you still can.
Estimate (£):165,000 - 185,000
1991 Porsche 911 964 Turbo 3.3
This stunning 3.3 Litre 964 Turbo is an original 'C16' UK specification right-hand drive example that was sold new in April 1991 by Parkwood Porsche, at a cost of over £75,000.
Finished in its original colour of Polar Silver with Can Can Red leather interior, the car has been maintained meticulously since new and the history file on this particular 964 Turbo is one of the best we have seen. Bills and receipts totalling over £30,000 can be found in the folder, along with a fully stamped service booklet, original wallet, all previous V5 documents, MOT certificates, tax discs and a full condition report from 2005 by highly respected Porsche specialist Peter Morgan Consulting Ltd.
Overall, this 964 Turbo is an original and highly collectible example that is ready to use and enjoy. Buyers should be aware that the number plate shown is not included in the sale.
Estimate (£): 55,000 - 65,000
1996 Porsche 911 993 Cabriolet
Introduced in September 1993, the 993 variant of the marque was notable for being Porsche's last air-cooled 911, an honour which rewards the driver of the extremely capable 993 today.
Purchased by our vendor in 2008, this August 1996 registered car has been carefully stored and subjected to fewer than 3,000 miles during his custodianship. Just prior to his purchase the car reportedly received a replacement electrically-operated canvas soft-top hood in Blue which still looks very fresh today.
Sold with UK V5C in the name of our privateer vendor and MOT until mid-September 2015, this handsome and desirable 993 variant of the iconic 911 has to be one of the finest and lowest mileage examples for sale in the UK today.
Estimate (£): 30,000 - 34,000
