1987 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante X-Pack

Finished in its original colour combination of Cumberland Grey with Mushroom leather interior, this stunning factory equipped X-Pack Aston boasts a mighty 432bhp and a four-speed automatic gearbox.

In August 2008 the car was subject to an extensive bare metal restoration by a respected Aston Martin specialist and has covered a mere 2,300 miles since.

With only 84 examples ever made, there are few cars in the classic car market that both define their era and offer such exclusivity.

Estimate (£): 135,000 - 155,000

1953 Jaguar XK120 Fixedhead Coupe with Period Competition History

A stunning Jaguar XK120 with a fascinating history that links it directly to Ecurie Ecosse's victory at Le Mans in 1956.

Campaigning throughout the Fifties, the car was sold in 1961 to Sir James Lockerbie OBE, a former benefactor of the Ecurie Ecosse race team. Development continued and the now Singapore registered ‘SU 457' Jaguar won numerous events with Lockerbie now President of the Singapore Motor Club.

Finished in factory Pastel Blue with blue leather, this historic XK120 is a very unspoiled example that retains much of its originality. A true investment with an immense sense of ownership given the history involved.

Estimate (£): 80,000 - 90,000

1968 Ford Mustang Fastback Genuine GT 'S-Code' Big Block

The Ford Mustang celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and what better way to mark the occasion than by investing in a piece of its history?

This 1968 ‘S-Code' Mustang comes with impeccable history and originality, having recently arrived from the USA where the car had remained with the original owner from 1968 until late in 2011. Now showing just 23,500 unverified miles, the car is presented in superb original condition.

Surely this is an unrepeatable opportunity to acquire a genuine ‘S-Code' Mustang with fantastic history and originality combined with a sensible guide price?

Estimate (£): 33,000 - 36,000

1962 Jaguar E-Type Series One Flat-Floor Roadster

Such is the standard of this car, Spellbound Cars is prepared to offer a 12 month or 6,000 mile parts and labour warranty on this E-Type, whichever occurs sooner. This is a very unusual offering for an auction vehicle but goes a long way to assure us, and hopefully you, of the quality of this car.

The many years of consistent maintenance and the culmination of the Spellbound Cars restoration has stemmed a truly exceptional example of the Jaguar marque, offered with MoT test certificate, UK V5C and 100% primed and ready for the 2014 motoring season. Don't hesitate to own such a car.

Estimate (£): 115,000 - 130,000
