Cars we’ve recently consigned into the sale.

1999 Ferrari 456M

The beautiful car offered here boasts just one registered keeper from new and has covered an incredible 400 miles from new. It has been stored in a de-humidified garage for its entire life and has been run up to temperature regularly.

As one would expect, the car is presented in 'as new' condition. The bodywork is flawless and has never seen rain, the sumptuous black interior is unmarked and the engine bay is a delight.

This Ferrari 456 Modificata must be the lowest mileage example in the country and is a unique opportunity for any collector. Supplied with all books, service wallet, original bill of sale and desirable fitted luggage, this V12 Italian thoroughbred must be seen to be believed.

Estimate (£): 75,000 - 90,000

1972 Ford Escort RS 1600

According to a number of reliable sources, there are reputed to be less than 50 RS1600s registered or SORN in the UK and only around 1,137 were ever produced in total.

This example was first registered in the UK on 11th February 1972 and was purchased by the current owner approximately three years ago. He has kept the car in a dehumidified garage and cherished this extremely collectable road-going example. The speedometer is reading 3,490 miles, which is the total mileage covered since this car underwent a ground up restoration. There are bills in the history file from renowned marque expert Andy Stapley Motorsport and the car will be supplied with a fresh MoT certificate for the auction.

It is most unusual to find a road specification example finished to such a high standard. The Le Mans Green paintwork is superb with excellent shut lines and has been completed to a very high standard. The interior is completely standard and correct, and the engine bay is spotless. Don’t miss a fantastic opportunity to own what may well be the finest RS1600 available.

Estimate (£): 45,000 - 55,000

1985 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo

One of the defining supercars of the 1970s and 1980s, the Porsche 911 930 Turbo was one of the fastest production cars available at the time. This example shows a mere warranted 25,571 miles from new supported by previous MoT records and SORN Records as detailed in the cars history file.

Presented in its factory correct Black/A1A1 paint colour, the car was originally delivered with Black leather interior, however, we are lead to believe that its current White leather interior was fitted by the car's second owner in the early years of its life. In 2013 the engine was stripped and rebuilt along with the fitment of a new clutch by WrighTune Ltd to insure all was as it should be

This car poses an excellent opportunity to acquire a low mileage example of one of the fastest appreciating 911s on the market.

Estimate (£): 58,000 - 64,000

1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Fixedhead Coupe

The Series 1 3.8 Fixedhead Coupe is seen by many as the most desirable E-Type for its pure lines and sumptuous curves. The example offered here is an original UK right-hand drive 3.8 Fixedhead Coupe, presented in the elegant colour combination of Opalescent grey with grey leather.

First registered on 15th March 1963, this E-Type shows a mere five previous owners on the log book. It was purchased by the current owner in 2008 and has been cherished in a Carcoon dehumidified environment ever since. Invoices in the history file suggest the car was restored between 2000 and 2004 and now the restoration has mellowed nicely. The engine head and block are matching numbers and the car retains the original 4-speed Moss gearbox.

Finished in lovely order throughout, this most desirable of E-Types is now ready to be enjoyed by its next owner with a fresh MoT test certificate.

Estimate (£): 65,000 - 75,000
