Goodwood was like so many British circuits a WW2 airfield that was re purposed with its perimeter roads used for club racing before a permanent 3.809km circuit was built in the early 1950s. Literally built in Lord March’s back yard the circuit would have much fame when it hosted the RAC Tourist Trophy from the late 1950s to the late 1960s and was the site of Bruce McLarens death in testing in the early 1970s. While members meetings were held each year, the circuit was otherwise not used from 1966 until the first modern public event, the Festival of Speed was launched with cars run up Lord March’s 1.86 km long drive in 1993. Now part of a season of events, joining the Revival and Members Meeting race events, the F.O.S. is essentially a hillclimb and today known as the rolling British Motor Show with every type of driving on display from drifting, stunt driving (the Range Rover driven up the hill on two wheels a personal highlight) and full on racing. That said the FOS includes displays of the major car companies (they all attempt to out do each other with tech and launches), a rally stage, soapbox challenge and a concours. Further like all Goodwood motoring events, they host a Bonhams auction.
Held since 1993 the Festival of Speed sale has prospered and suffered as their parent company has, highlights being the 2006 offering of the Bugatti Type 35B that won the first Monaco GP and a Jaguar D-Type in 2009 although a long barren patch continued through 2011. A new revitalisation through the entire company was seen with the offering of the Daniels collection in 2012 and the only Mercedes-Benz W196 in public hands in 2013. Unfortunately the 2014 offer of the Ferrari 375 Plus was mired in controversy and after the ex works team Aston Martin Ulster in 2015 there has been little to excite. The announcement that they would be offering the most expensive British car ever sold in the UK has stunned the market and it has now been joined by no less than eleven other million dollar collectors cars,

2018 52/80 (65%) $41,198,774 $13,264,955 1961 Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato
Aston Martin produced just 19 examples of their DB4GT Zagato and while these are all fabulous cars, the very best were the three MP209 lightweights built for racing and this particular example was readily the best. While the original Jaguar E-Type and Ferrari 250 SWB had been developed into the Lightweight and SEFAC/61 respectively, the Jaguar taking until 1963 to really get going, the DB4GT was developed into the Zagato. More a road than race car the Zagato was still too heavy to properly compete with the Ferrari’s and Ogier’s two cars #0182/R (1VEV) and 0183/R (2VEV) were summarily outclassed and the decision was made to produce an all new chassis and aero package for 1962. #0183/R was seriously crashed at Spa and that gave Aston the opportunity to swap out the car with a pretty much new #0183/R appearing a matter of weeks later. Unfortunately Ferrari was already hard at work with the 250GTO which threw shade on every other entry and the Zagato’s faded into obscurity although #0183/R spent decades being raced in historic categories. Fresh from almost 50 years with a single family and restored post a minor 1993 road accident, it remains one of the greatest cars ever made. While the estimate is not given, you can be sure its more than £10 million and the chatter is that it will be more like the high teens, perhaps even the very low twenties. Far and away greater than simply offering a superb car, the securing of perhaps the greatest car to be offered at the sale since the mighty Mercedes has made this a sale to rival pretty much anything offered at Monterey.
Two further cars on offer have also received much attention and would be marquee lots at any other sale. The first is the 1932 Alfa Romeo Tipo B that was both an ex Scuderia Ferrari/ Alfa Romeo team car for Guy Moll and latter raced by Dick Shuttleworth with immense success. Noted to have been converted to unique spec for Avus 1934 and later crashed by Shuttleworth at the South African GP in 1938 it was rebuilt by Alfa Romeo themselves and further still received unique 2 seater coachwork in the 1940s. Restored by Alfisti Henry Wessels in the 1980s the car is presented in excellent condition and with impeccable provenance. The £4.5 – 5 mil. ($5.94 – 6.6 mil.) estimate is much higher than the $4.2 million RM managed to get for sister car #50006 at Paris in early 2017 BUT each car is a singular item and these are rare enough that you need to pay to play and it is still good value, when or where will you find another? Another headline act (although only the equal 3rd priciest car on offer) is the unique BMW 507 on offer which was bought brand new by former World Champion (on both two and four wheels) John Surtees and received unique modifications by BMW. Perhaps the most exciting thing about this 507 is that it remained with John Surtees until his death in 2017 and it is offered directly from his estate. Priced roughly twice any other 507 its still superb value at the £2 – 2.5 mil. ($2.64 – 3.3 mil.) estimate, unique is an overused term but this car is truly that and more.
Another two marquee lots have much to teach us about values, one superb and the other a little oddball. The first is an Aston DB4 GT, the forerunner to the Zagato which had a good if undistinguished history and has been alternately raced or street driven which remains in “well presented and cared for”, reasonably original condition. It is market priced at £2.3 – 2.5 mil. ($3.036 – 3.3 mil.), roughly in line with the last couple of sales. The other car is the Bentley 4.5 litre Blower which is said to be original although it had been rebuilt/ restored from a genuine chassis (no mention of where it came from), fitted with original but non matching supercharger, gearbox, rear axle, diff etc. The description is a work of prose with a lot of talk about how “real” it is but little actual certainty around provenance. Recent sales of Blowers have run anything from 1 to 8 million US$ but have run the gamut from absolutely genuine to gussied up cars that only became Blower in recent years. Bonhams auction description offers no certainty that their isn’t another SM3925 out there so the £2 – 2.5 mil. ($2.6 – 3.3 mil.) estimate is probably about right.
Pre war collectibles are notably strong at this sale. Highlight include:
- 1920 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Alpine Eagle Tourer. Est. £150 – 180k ($198 – 238k). Restored example of the higher performance Alpine Eagle Silver Ghost. Non original coachwork like most. Value at the money for a stylish and usable example of the model.
- 1926 Bentley 3 Litre Speed Model Tourer. Est. £380 – 420k ($502 – 554k). Interesting highly original old car including its Vanden Plas coachwork. A good buy at the low estimate.
- 1928 Bugatti Type 40 Tourer. Est. £300 – 400k ($396 – 462k). A supposedly original, sporty Bugatti at a very affordable price. If the coachwork is original its worth it.
- 1928 Bentley 4½ Litre Tourer. Est. £250 – 280k ($330 – 370k). Another Bentley that has been created from a set of parts although a great look and worth interest, accepted member of the fraternity and acceptable buying.
- 1929 Bentley Speed Six Tourer. Est. £800k – 1 mil. ($1.05 – 1.32 mil.) One of the original 121 Speed Six, fitted with Le Mans Tourer coachwork and standard 6.5 litre engine in 1996, otherwise the real thing. Market priced.
- 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C1500 Sports Tourer. Est. £180 – 240k ($238 – 317k). A weird little Alfa that looks like lots of fun if not entirely original nor fast. Priced as such and perhaps a little optimistically.
- 1935 Brough Superior 4.2 DHC. Est. £100 – 150k ($132 – 198k). Both very rare and British, a good old car that will require more money to be road worthy but still a nice contrivance. Seems expensive, the last one sold for a tenth of this amount.
- 1936 AC 16/70HP March Special Sports Tourer. Est. £90 – 120k ($119 – 158). A sport AC in good colours, not particularly powerful but a nice tourer in very good condition with lots to recommend it. Seems a little expensive.
Mid century cars are another strong point. Highlights include:
- 1951 Bentley R-Type Continental. Est. £750 – 950k ($990k – 1.254 mil.). Top spec early Conti (the 11th made) with the Right Handed gear lever, market priced.
- 1954 AC Ace Roadster. Est. £380 – 480k ($502 – 634k). The first AC Ace, perfect history incl. racing and provenance. Twice the usual Ace price but its unique and I think still value at the money.
- 1955 Austin-Healey 100S. Est. £580 – 640k ($766 – 845k). A genuine 100S but large gaps in its provenance. That said its a top flight entry to any event and a market correct price.
- 1960 Ferrari 250GT Coupe. Est. £550 – 650k ($726 – 858k). A gorgeous example of this most elegant coupe. Classiche certified and while expensive (maybe $100k), perhaps its market forward.
- 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster. Est. £380 – 440k ($502 – 581k), The 64th E-Type made, used as a demonstrator, beautifully restored condition, adventurous pricing BUT its rare to find one this good.
- 1964 Aston Martin DB5. Est. £440 – 520k ($581 – 686k). The wonderful DB5 in the lovely Carribean Pearl. Not a perfect car but still pretty good and said to be in beautiful condition. Priced right.
- 1965 Ford Lotus Cortina. Est. £200 – 250k ($264 – 330k) A genuine Jim Clark/ Team Lotus race car, expensive compared to a Cortina but cheap for a piece of Clark/ Lotus history.
- 1965 Aston Martin DB5. Est. £1.2 – 1.6 mil. ($1.584 – 2.112 mil.). A standard old DB5 that was purchased for use in the Bond movie “Goldeneye”, said to be in good condition and a genuine piece of Bond history BUT not Sean Connery era Bond. As such, hard to say but seems expensive.
- 1967 Ford Lotus Cortina. Est £100 – 150k ($132 – 198k). A FoMoCo race car raced by Hawkins and Ickx in period. A fun way to go vintage racing at the best events. Reasonably powerful and good buying at the estimate.
- 1968 Chevron B8 Coupe. Est. £250 – 300k ($330 – 396k). A genuine Chevron that has been fully raced prepped by Blakeney Motorsports so ready to go. Lots of fun and worth a look. Half the price of a B16 so value is there.
- 1972 Ferrari 246GT. Est. £100 – 130k ($132 – 172k). Yes it looks cheap but its been sitting in a barn for 35 years and needs a lot of money spent on it. Non original engine fitted etc. One for the adventurous.
Like all recent auctions, modern collectibles are a major thing and the highlights are:
- 1984 March 84G Chevrolet Group C. Est. £180 – 230k ($238 – 304k). A genuine example of an Adrian Newey designed Group C/ IMSA racecar. Authentic and fun if not entirely successful. Restored and ready to go. Market correct pricing.
- 2007 Aston Martin V12 Vantage RS Coupe Prototype. Est. £400 – 500k ($528 – 660k). Yes its the prototype and unique. Just 750 miles from new and road legal BUT seems crazy expensive. Someone might love it enough……
- 2009 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4SV. Est. £330 – 380k ($436 – 502k). Great colour scheme. Gorgeous example with great history but 17,000k is a lot. Perhaps $100 – 200k more than the example on offer at Artcurial Le Mans so very expensive.
- 2011 Aston Martin One-77 Q-Edition. Est. £1.65 – 1.8 mil. ($2.178 – 2.376 mil.) A cool car, and very rare, just 7 Q series but two for sale in one week (see the car at Artcurial) and not sure how the money stacks up. I also note that 20% VAT will be charged if purchased in Europe.
- 2012 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Coupe. Est. £1.7 – 1.8 mil. ($2.244 – 2.376 mil.). The final Super Sport. An excellent example. Priced about right although the 20% VAT which might be added would make it an expensive proposition.
- 2014 McLaren P1 Coupe. Est. £1.3 – 1.75 mil. ($1.7 – 2.31 mil.). Looks striking in Volcano Orange and as new. Market pricing.
- 2014 Land Rover SVX Spectre 4×4. Est. £220 – 250k ($290 – 330k). One of ten used in the Bond film “Spectre”. Perfect for your mountain lair and seems cheap for a piece of movie folklore but expensive for a Landie.
- 2016 Pagani Huayra. Est. £1.3 – 1.6 ($1.7 – 2.1 mil.). 1 of just 4 supplied to the UK in RHD. Unique colour scheme and spec, market pricing.
- 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S. Est. £110 – 140k ($145 – 185k). A nuce example of the type. Low mileage and lots of life left. Seems expensive but these are 200k new so a decent discount still.
- 2018 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn Cabriolet. Est. £190 – 230k ($251 – 304k). Gorgeous and as new. Just 14 miles from new. A bit of a saving from the list price. 20% VAT may be payable however so keep that in mind.
For all the excitement and million dollar cars there are some affordable classics. Highlights include:
- 1964 Mercedes-Benz 300SE Fintail Competition Saloon. Est. £38 – 44k ($50 – 58k). Properly built to race in HRDC events. Ready to run and lots of fun. Woul of cost more than this to build.
- 1977 Porsche 911S Coupe. Est. £20 – 30k ($26 – 40k). A nice old 911S might be pretty boring but this car was used in the filming of “The Bridge”. All proceeds to charity. Could go large, very large indeed.
- 1965 Ford Lotus Cortina. Est. £30 – 40k ($40 – 53k). A cool restomodded Cortina. Lots of fun and MSA approved so could be raced.
- 1965 Morris Mini Cooper 970S. £50 – 60k ($66 – 79k). Original Mini Cooper S with the 970cc engine (1 of just 482) and lots of fun. Great looking car.
- 1964 Bentley S3 Continental Coupe. Est. £80 – 90k ($106 – 119k). A unique Bentley with one off coachwork, once owned by Engelbert Humperdinck and in excellent condition.
- 2005 Porsche 911/996 Turbo S. Est. £60 – 70k ($79 – 92k). Fast and low mileage, pretty good buying at the price.
- 2018 Mini Cooper S 3 door Hatch. Est. £20 – 30k ($26 – 40k). Unique Mini created for the recent royal wedding and sold for charity. Could go huge.
- 2007 Porsche 911/997 Turbo S Convertible. Est. £60 – 70k ($79 – 92k). Another fast and low mileage 911. Great value.
- 2010 Jaguar XJ8 LWB Armoured Saloon. Est. £25 – 35k ($33 – 46k). Margaret Thatchers Jag limo. Not sure why you would want it but if its your scene, why not.
Bonhams have really pulled out all the stops for their Goodwood Festival of Speed sale in 2018 and they are to be applauded.
Bonhams returned to Goodwood for their Festival of Speed sale and had immense success, tripling turnover with a total that is the second best for the sale. With several strong sales the 2018 gross was a fantastic $41.198 mil. although this was achieved with 52 of the 80 lots selling, an unchanged 65% sell through rate. As expected the top sale was the 1961 Aston DB4GT Zagato MP209 which fetched £10.08 mil. ($13.26 mil.), a significant sum but still much cheaper than standard Zagato’s have fetched, perhaps indicative of its err distinctive looks and history. Two further highlights were the John Surtees BMW 507 which fetched £3.8 mil. ($5.01 mil.) fully 52% more than a strong estimate and the Alfa Romeo Tipo B which sold for a mid estimate £4.59 mil. ($6.04 mil.).
Other strong sellers were the 1989 Aston V8 Vantage X Pack at a 6% over estimate £393k ($518k), the 2012 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport at £2.045 ($2.691 mil.) (+14%), 1965 Aston Martin DB5 featured in a modern Bond movie at £1.961 ($2.58 mil.) (+23%), 2014 Land Rover SVX Spectre 4×4 at £365k ($481k) (+46%), 1938 Brough Superior 4½-Litre V12 Sports Saloon at £52k ($68k) (+107%), 1985 Land Rover 90 V8 4×4 at £18k ($23k) (+256%) and the 1977 Porsche 911S Coupe from the Scandi cop show “the Bridge” sold for charity fetched a superb £141k ($186k) (+372%). Several cars sold for mid estimate sums including the 1960 Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina Coupe at £584k ($768k), the 1954 AC Ace at £405k ($532k) and the 1931 Bentley 4½-Litre Blower Tourer bitsa at £2.017 mil. ($2.655 mil.).
A few cars sold poorly, notably the 1969 Triumph TR6 Roadster at £11,500 ($15k) (22% below low estimate), 1928 Bugatti Type 44 Tourer at £248k ($326k) (-22%) and
1935 Brough Superior 4.2 DHC at £80k ($105k) (-20%). Modern supercars were a tough sell at this sale, significant no sales included the 1951 Bentley R-Type Continental at a reported high bid (RHB) of £690k against a £750k estimate, 1929 Bentley Speed Six Tourer at a RHB of £700k against a £800k estimate, 2014 McLaren P1 Coupe at a RHB of £1.1 mil. against a £1.3 mil. estimate, 2011 Aston Martin One-77 Q-Edition at a RHB of £1.5 mil. against a £1.65 mil. estimate, the 1960 Aston Martin DB4GT at a RHB of 2.15 mil. against a £2.3 mil. estimate and the 2016 Pagani Huayra at a RHB of £1.1 against a £1.3 mil. estimate.
Bonhams should be pretty chuffed with the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed sale, aside from the top selling Aston there was so much, especially the John Surtees BMW 507 that sold for fantastic amounts and really supported a total gross that will likely make it one of the top 10 auctions of 2018.

Silver over Grey leather. This example was supplied new in the USA before being exported to Germany where it was purchased in 1995 by the immediately preceding owner. The current vendor purchased the car at a UK auction in March 2015, at which time it was said to have ‘covered just 10,000 miles in the past 19 years’ and to be ‘in very respectable order’.

Dimm ’32, Al Gross, LI ’32, five further owners, Brooks-Ostruck Sedan Limousine coachwork fitted, stored for four decades, Malcolm Tucker, UK ’07, restored by Ro-Ben Cars with replica Open Tourer by Western Coachworks coachwork.Once a substantial portion of the mechanical overhaul had been completed, the refurbished rolling chassis was despatched to the coachbuilder while work continued on the engine, clutch, and gearbox. Western Coachworks of Mickleover, near Derby was chosen to make the new body, which was constructed to Malcolm Tucker’s own Ferguson-inspired design using Rolls-Royce’s instructional booklet for coachbuilders. With the body tub completed by the end of July 2012, the Silver Ghost was returned to Ro-Ben for the engine to be reinstalled. Unforeseen circumstances (Mike Knowles being unwell) meant that the mechanical restoration had to be completed elsewhere, and the task was assigned to Allan Glew. Trevor Hirst of Christchurch fabricated a new set of wings and new bonnet sides, the original bonnet being retained. By July 2015, ’10CW’ was ready for a registration application to be made to the DVLA, and after a seemingly endless succession of bureaucratic obstacles had been overcome, the car eventually received the highly appropriate registration, ‘RR 7492′, in March 2016. Later that same year, the Silver Ghost was acquired by the current vendor, who advises us that fewer than 3,000 miles have been covered since the restoration’s completion. Beautifully proportioned, the Silver Ghost is finished in grey with contrasting red hide buttoned seats to the interior, while the convertible hood is of black double duck and folds down into a matching hood bag. There is a useful luggage rack at the rear, and a pair of tonneau covers comes with the car. The dashboard is beautifully made from a single piece of American cherry wood, as are the door cappings, while twin cherry wood boxes of cabinet-maker’s quality are mounted on the running boards. The original under-trays are in situ, and a nickel-plated klaxon horn is mounted on the bulkhead. Malcolm Tucker’s fascinating account of the history and resurrection of ’10CW’ is available in the form of two (copy) magazine articles on file, and the car also comes with invoices issued by the various specialists involved totalling circa £231,400. This fine sporting Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost remains in beautiful condition, wants for nothing, and is ready to be enjoyed.

Fewer than 500 miles have been covered since the restoration’s completion, the current odometer reading being circa 52,700. Accompanying documentation consists of a current MoT certificate, V5C registration document, and the aforementioned bills.

Aston Service Dorset fully serviced the DB5 prior to its sale in 2016, at which time the radiator was re-cored, new Perspex headlight covers fitted, and some minor under-seal imperfections addressed. The following year, in December 2017, Paul Jennings had a replacement engine built up around a new Aston Martin-supplied cylinder block by renowned marque specialist Bill Goodall of Newlands Motors (see bill on file for £18,815). The removed engine (not the car’s original) is included in the sale (Lot 324).

He also changed the exterior colour from white to the current Black Pearl. Faced with upcoming expenses, Bill regretfully sold ‘3044/R’ to the late Paul Jennings in January 2016, the DB6 reverting to its previous registration, ‘ABW 220E’. The substantial history file contains the car’s aforementioned logbook and warranty; 17 expired MoTs for the period 1975 to 2016; assorted pieces of correspondence; and numerous invoices from recognised specialists detailing servicing and maintenance dating from the present day back to the 1970s.

This Vanquish S was first registered in June 2017 to a Mr Mike Flanagan, yet by the end of July 2017 had been acquired by the late Paul Jennings, its second owner.

Yellow over Black. RHD. Delivered new to the UK and first registered on 18th January 1972, this Porsche 911S was purchased by the late Paul Jennings in July 2014 from marque specialist, Paul Stephens, who had acquired it in May 2013. The car had previously been modified and uprated for rallying (miscellaneous upgraded parts, including a spare set of wheels, offered with the car), and was purchased by Paul Jennings part way through being restored and returned to road specification. Undertaken by Paul Stephens, this was a ground upwards, ‘last nut and bolt’ restoration to the highest possible standard carried out by one of the UK’s foremost Porsche experts (see bills totalling over £100,000 on file, as well as 6 CDs of restoration photographs). Absolutely no expense was spared and the attention to detail is exemplary. In the course of the rebuild, Paul Stephens replaced the uprated 2.7 engine that was in the car with a correct 2.4-litre ‘S’ unit, which was fully rebuilt and is in immaculate condition, performing perfectly. The Porsche was displayed on Paul Stephens stand at Goodwood when the restoration was finished. In more recent years the Porsche has been maintained by marque specialists, Autofarm (invoices available). The very substantial history file contains assorted correspondence, details of previous owners, invoices dating back to 1983, a current V5C Registration Certificate, MoT to August 2018, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

Green and Beige over Green. Known to the Land Rover Series I Club, this 80″ wheelbase model was not first registered until 1963, perhaps indicating that it had been in military or government service prior to that date. The late Paul Jennings acquired the vehicle in July 2015 from John Brown 4×4 of Thirsk. The purchase invoice is on file and the Landie also comes with a quantity of expired MoTs (most recent 2015), copy V5 registration documents, and numerous restoration photographs documenting an extensive rebuild, possibly undertaken during the 1990s.

Metallic Blue Grey over White leather. Purchased from P&A Wood on 5th March 2018, Mr Jennings sadly never took delivery. Consequently, this stunning Rolls-Royce Dawn has covered a mere 14 miles from new and is presented in ‘as new’ condition throughout. Please be advised that due to the limited number of kilometers recorded on the odometer, this Lot may incur a VAT liability upon registration in any EU country other than the UK.
325 1935 Brough Superior 4.2 DHC 44601/CWC/1 £100,000 £150,000 £79,900 €90,295 $105,130 -20%
Black over Brown leather. RHD. 1 of 25 1st series examples. William Smithie, UK (1), swapped for a new Brough ’40 and used by George Brough and retained, vendor ’72 (2). The history file also contains an original letter from Mrs E C Brough, numerous MoT certificates, an original ‘Brough Superior’ logbook sleeve, old-style V5/V5C documents, and an old-style continuation logbook in George Brough’s name (issued 1948).During the war, the rear seats had been removed and George used the car to deliver Rolls-Royce Merlin engine crankshafts (five at a time) which had been manufactured at the Brough works. It was said that he would drive through the night on full headlights, a rare dispensation at a time of total blackout. On one occasion, George collided with some level crossing gates. As might be imagined, this accident had an adverse effect on the rear suspension and the body frame, so in its new ownership the car was dismantled by Ian Johns, owner of another eight-cylinder Brough. It was then re-framed, repainted, fitted with new suspension, and had its engine rebuilt having covered in excess of 360,000 miles. The car’s distinctive foot-plates were fitted at this time. Since then, ‘WH 7238’ has been used extensively, attending several European rallies, and in 1983 was taken to the FIVA World Rally in the USA, which it won. Requires recommissioning. Accompanying documentation consist of a green continuation logbook, numerous expired MoTs, and old-style V5/V5C Registration Certificates.

Black over Green leather. RHD. 1 of 3 pre war examples, only one completed, fitted with Charlesworth Saloon coachwork, registered both 297AU and FAU999, unknown, Thomas Hitchon ’49, Thomas Cogswell ’51, John Dyson ’66, vendor ’76. At that time, the car had been completely dismantled mechanically, and the engine was thought to be irreparable. Fortunately, the owner was able to obtain a new short block engine from France where it had been buried in its crate during the war to prevent it falling into German hands. The Brough’s mechanicals were rebuilt over a period and gradually reassembled. The history file also contains numerous other letters; a quantity of (copy) technical literature; a selection of period photographs; sundry invoices; old V5 registration documents and expired MoTs; and a copy of The Autocar featuring a review of the Brough V12. Stored for 25 years.
327 1937 Brough Superior 3½-Litre Saloon 42137 £25,000 £35,000 £32,200 €36,389 $42,368 Mid
Black over Cream leather. RHD. This six-cylinder Brough was in a poor state when purchased and has been completely rebuilt and repainted by marque specialist Ian Johns over a three-year period. It has had very little use since the rebuild. The car is offered for sale from long-term storage, and it is expected that it will have been got running by time of sale. Nevertheless, further re-commissioning will almost certainly be required before it returns to the road. Accompanying documentation consists of some ‘as found’ and restoration-in-progress photographs, various old-style V5 registration certificates, sundry expired MoTs, and an old-style V5C.
328 1951 Bentley R-Type Continental BC11A £750,000 £950,000 Not sold N/A
Tudor Grey over Maroon leather. RHD. 5 speed Right Hand gearchange. via Franco-Britannic Automobiles to Mrs Loel Guinness, France (1), via Franco-Britannic to Lemaigre Dubreuil ’55 (2), via Franco-Britannic to M. Rambuteau ’64 (3), via Jack Barclay to Guy May, UK ’67 (4), Richard Seys (5), J. Evan-Cooke (6), J. Gurney (7), vendors family ’78 (8). ‘BC11A’ was ordered with lightweight seats, a Jaeger trip chronograph, and a plain radiator (no cap or mascot), and was originally finished in Tudor Grey with maroon trim. ‘BC11A’ has the manual gearbox and right-hand gear lever; the latter is considered to be far superior to both the steering column and central gear changes, which have the disadvantage of additional linkages resulting in less precise shifting. A published road test of the right-hand gear change on an R-Type Continental noted that the expression, ‘like a hot knife through butter!’ was especially apt. In 2002, ‘BC11A’ attended the R-Type Continental’s 50th Anniversary Celebration at Silverstone, and the following year was treated to a professional restoration of the bodywork and interior. Carried out between November 2003 and July 2004, these works included repairs to panels, a bare-metal re-spray, partial re-trim (new carpets, headlining, etc), refurbishment of woodwork, re-plating of brightwork and much more besides. Details of the works carried out are on file together with photographs of the Bentley in bare metal prior to the re-spray. The car is offered with its original handbook, workshop manual, first UK logbook (issued 1967), various articles, assorted correspondence, and other historical documentation. Presented in running order, ‘BC11A’ represents a rare opportunity to acquire a fine example of the most famous post-war Bentley, possessing impeccable provenance.
329 1953 Mercedes-Benz 300 Cabriolet R186014-3501890 £220,000 £280,000 Not sold N/A
Black over Red leather. RHD. 1 of 7 delivered to UK, unknown, vendor since ’14. He was able to obtain many missing parts from the previous owner, who had stripped the car before selling it the restorer, but the severely corroded floor pans presented a major problem. Wanting to use only genuine Mercedes-Benz parts, and with replacements no longer available, the only solution was to obtain a suitable donor car. Amazingly, another right-hand drive 300 (a saloon) was found in Poland, purchased, and its immaculate floor pans transferred to ‘OXP 2’. All body panels were stripped back to bare metal and E coated to preserve it for the future, the chassis drivetrain and suspension components were all sand or vapour blasted before paint or powder coating. Then chassis, suspension, brakes, engine, and gearbox were all rebuilt, with any new parts required being obtained from marque specialists Neimoller of Mannheim, Germany. The engine was stripped totally, the crankshaft being reground; new pistons/rings, bearings, and valves fitted; the oil pump re-engineered to increase oil pressure; and all parts balanced and/or skimmed where appropriate. It was then reassembled by Anthony Seddon, who builds historic F1 cars, F3 cars, and touring cars. Fortunately, the interior was in good enough condition to be reused in its entirety – being re-trimmed by an ex-Bentley craftsman with 30 years experience – as was the window glass and all brightwork. The Bosch headlights and spotlights are likewise original items, refurbished at considerable expense. Every nut and bolt used was taken from either the original or the donor car, ensuring complete authenticity. This concern for originality is reflected in the fact that, despite having some minor blemishes, the original rear bumper and number plate plinth were reused rather than being replaced with pattern parts. Built to fit the original cowl, the radiator core is one of the relatively few new parts used. As one would expect, the hood and headlining had to be made anew, the correct fabric being sourced from a specialist in the USA. Repainting the body in its original deep black livery took all of six months to complete, and the quality of finish achieved is quite outstanding. Offered with restoration invoices and a full photographic restoration history, UK V5C Registration Certificate, this sublime Mercedes-Benz 300 Cabriolet represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire an ultra-rare right-hand drive example of one of the world’s most coveted automobiles, eligible for a variety of the most prestigious historic motoring events.
330 1957 BMW 507 Roadster w Hardtop 70067 £2,000,000 £2,500,000 £3,809,500 €4,305,105 $5,012,433 52%
Silver Blue over Red and Grey leather. 1 of 252 examples. Bought by Count Agusta for John Surtees, UK, improved by Alex von Falkenhausen when new with Dunlop disc brakes and full under-belly fairing which gave it something like 165bhp and 10-15 mph more top speed. Capable of 140mph. Stored from ’62 when Surtees joined Ferrari, used briefly in the early ’60s by a colleague, otherwise retained and lovingly maintained. He would preserve, maintain and adore this much-loved – and much admired – BMW 507 until he sadly died, aged 83, on 10th March last year. And he used this graceful Grand Touring car extensively, often driving over the Brenner and Simplon passes on his way to-and-fro between England and Italy, revelling in its long-legged gait and considerable contemporary level of cockpit comfort and refinement. Hearsay recollections from BMW Classic advise us that as a special sports version – augmented to director von Falkenhausen’s instructions – the V8 engine of John Surtees’s ’22 GKN’ offered here provided around 165bhp thanks to its compression ratio having been raised to 9.0.1, while the unit was also fitted with larger 42/38mm diameter valves and larger 36NDIX carburettors. The engine reputedly also featured a special high-lift camshaft “with leverage increased to 1.70:1, instead of the 1.53:1 of the production engines to give higher valve lift”. Beautiful example.

We are advised that the car underwent a total body restoration during 2003/2004, many panels being replaced and new seats fabricated, exactly replicating those originally fitted during its racing career. Suspension and steering modifications unique to this car have been retained and remain in place, while the engine underwent a total rebuild by recognised specialist Pat Thomas of Kelvedon Motors to bring it back to full race specification at a cost in excess of £14,000. Related bills may be found within the extensive history file, which also contains letters of authentication from the Lotus Cortina Register, a UK V5C Registration Certificate, current MoT, and the aforementioned logbook and race records, via Bonhams Olympia $252k to vendor ’07.

Opalescent Silver Blue over Dark Blue leather. RHD. via Henlys to W Sparrow & Sons (1), used as a demonstrator, unknown, totally restored by Martin Robey, AE Fogg ’90. Inspected by surveyor and valuer, A E Fogg BSc, LLB in December 1990 (copy included), it had been recently taxed for the first time in several years, having been off the road undergoing a total restoration. The vehicle had been extensively refurbished (by marque expert Martin Robey) and was found to be totally rust-free, having been professionally repainted in original Opalescent Silver Blue. All mechanical components had been overhauled, and the car ran very sweetly with good oil pressure and normal running temperature. All running gear had been overhauled, the only discernible non-original feature being Koni shock absorbers (a period up-grade) and a later production-type radiator. The restoration was unfinished at the time of inspection and was finally completed circa 1992. via Bonhams Goodwood ’05 to Mr Anthony, unnamed vendor ’17, restored by XK Engineering at great cost – viewing of detailed works is essential. This painstaking rebuild was only completed in April 2018, and the car is presented in effectively ‘brand new’ concours condition. Reunited with its original registration mark ‘655 MYC’, this beautiful E-Type comes with the optional works-specification hardtop, Jaguar tool roll, restoration invoices, UK V5C registration document, and a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate confirming matching numbers.

Silver over Tan leather. RHD. Unfortunately, this Porsche 911 Turbo’s service history has been mislaid; however, Bonhams has obtained a summary of its services from Porsche Colchester. This document lists 12 routine and other services between March 1996 and February 2003, with a further service in December 2016 making 13 in all. The car’s accompanying Vehicle Information sheet reveals that it was built for the UK market and fitted with the following options: heated sports seats, recoil bumpers, top-tinted windscreen, sunroof, leather airbag steering wheel, and sun visors in leather. Finished in silver with tan leather interior, the car has covered circa 39,000 miles from new and is described by the vendor as in generally very good condition.

The Aston remained in London with the owner and was regularly serviced by Ian Mason (in 1990, 1991, 1995, and 1998). The vendor then moved the car to his country house, and subsequently it was looked after by Portfield Sports Cars (2001) and then Harwoods (2003, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2012). The owner then moved overseas and the Aston was sent to Classic Car Storage where it has been for the last four years. Maintenance during this period was entrusted to a general mechanic, as evidenced by numerous bills on file.

Grigio Conchiglia over Tan leather. 19th of 147 series IIs. The car has benefited from considerable expenditure in recent years, with various works undertaken by Maranello Rosso of Madrid and Carrosserie. Lecoq of Paris, the latter treating the Ferrari to a bare metal repaint in 2013 costing in excess of €18,000. In 2014, the engine was completely overhauled by marque specialists Joe Macari Servicing Ltd of London. The motor was rebuilt around a new and correct replacement cylinder block, supplied by Ferrari, while the original cylinder heads, crankshaft, and connecting rods were retained. At the same time, the cylinder heads were modified to accept coil valve springs, replacing the original hairpin type, an arrangement adopted by Ferrari on the 128F version of Colombo’s versatile V12. Other works carried out included sourcing a correct set of carburettors (from the USA) and fitting a correct set of Borrani wire wheels shod with new Pirelli Cinturato tyres. The all-important Ferrari Classiche certification was then obtained, the cost of all these works amounting to more than £120,000 (bills on file).

Good running condition. Email correspondence on file confirms that ‘863 FAY’ is the original registration number, and Mr Bentley goes on to say that the E-Type had been rebuilt to concours winning standard with several show wins in the UK, including the Midlands JDC Concours (for originality). In his estimation, the car was ‘an older restoration with a great patina and a lived in feel but still in great condition’. Further email correspondence reveals that ‘850227’ had been purchased as a restoration project in the late 1970s and restored by Classic Cars of Coventry in 1980/1981, its colour scheme being changed to the present red/black in the process. This E-Type has also been displayed on the JDC’s stand at the NEC Classic Car Show, appeared on BBC Television’s Top Gear programme, and been featured in Supercar Classics magazine (Autumn 1985 edition). On Top Gear, the E-Type was driven at Jaguar’s Brown’s Lane works by the company’s former Technical Director and Vice Chairman, William Heynes CBE. Representing a wonderful opportunity to own the most desirable of all E-Type models, ‘863 FAY’ comes with the optional works-specification hardtop, sundry restoration invoices, UK V5C registration document, and a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate confirming matching numbers.

351 1967 Ford Lotus Cortina BA91GD12811 £100,000 £150,000 £107,900 €121,937 $141,972 Mid
Red and Gold over Black. RHD. FoMoCo press fleet, FVA engine fitted, BRSCC Group 5 Saloon Car Championship ’67, raced by Paul Hawkins and Jacky Ickx, the best results being 1st-in-class finishes at the Silverstone Martini International meeting in May and at Brands Hatch in August. ‘CTC 24E was subsequently acquired by Alan Mann Racing from Brian Robinson, a privateer racer who also owned the sister-car ‘CTC 14E’ that had been raced by Graham Hill. In fact, Robinson had acquired five Lotus Cortinas directly from Team Lotus: three MkIs and two MkIIs. Once in Mann’s possession, newly engineered chassis/body strengthening and suspension modifications (designed for the Escort Twin-Cam) were incorporated. Designed by Len Bailey and Alan Mann, these chassis and suspension upgrades proved highly successful and are retained in the car today. Newly prepared, ‘CTC 24E’ was raced extensively during 1968 in both the European Touring Car Championship and the British Saloon Car Championship by Frank Gardner, whose best results were an overall win at Aspern, Austria and a 1st-in-class finish at Thruxton. The original Ford-owned Cosworth FVA engine was removed in period, and the car was later fitted with a Lotus Twin-Cam and a Ford V6 over the intervening years when it was used in hill climbs and sprints by various private owners. Installed during the last restoration, the current engine is a 1.6-litre Cosworth BDA producing around 200bhp. A five-speed Hewland gearbox, Salisbury limited-slip differential, and a single-piece prop-shaft complete the current drive train specification. Purchased directly from Henry Mann by the last owner, ‘CTC 24E’ retains its original 1967 Team Lotus bodyshell modified in period by Alan Mann Racing and retaining AMR’s all-important chassis, suspension, and body modifications. An extremely well known and important Lotus Cortina MkII competition saloon, it comes with a history file containing restoration invoices, current MoT, a V5C Registration Certificate, and the original green logbook recording the Ford Motor Company Limited of Warley, Essex as first owners.

Maintained by George Fowles. Today the car is offered not only in its historic Grand Prix pure-bred single-seater Tipo B Monoposto form, but is accompanied by the alternative 1940s-built two-seater body, enabling conversion of the car into a road-useable – and friendly – Biposto for which the car’s retained UK road registration of ‘MPH 374’ would enable legal touring and rallying. So very much of the essence of classic car enjoyment and general high-performance motoring, plus the competitive lure of top-end historic Grand Prix car racing, is embodied within ‘5007’/’50007′. George Fowles advises that conversion from Grand Prix single-seater to road-going Biposto (two-seat) configuration should be easily achievable within two or three working days. We can in fact think of few direct parallels amongst the many hundreds of great classic machines that Bonhams has handled over so many years. In addition to the two-seater body, the car comes with FIA HTP papers and a UK V5 registration document.
353 1926 Bentley 3 Litre Speed Model Tourer DE1220 £380,000 £420,000 Not sold N/A
Brewster Green over Dark Green leather. RHD. Eric Loder (1), Vanden Plas coachwork fitted, unknown, Philip Mann ’50s, restored, later to the USA ’60s, returned to UK ’80s. At this point, the car migrated to the USA where it remained with two long term owners, again active in the BDC, until the mid-1980s. Its original registration number was returned to the car on the arrival back in Britain and it would continue a lower key, but well maintained and managed life back home. At some point in this journey, perhaps for fashion and to cover its aging lightweight alloy coachwork, the metal tub was covered with fabric. The present owner, a passionate enthusiast for the ‘Best of British’ cars, acquired the ‘3’ in 2010. Recognising its rarity as one of few original-bodied examples that have survived their 90+ years he commissioned a full restoration of the car. The car was rebuilt from the ground up. Its engine was checked over carefully and found to need little attention, having previously been rebuilt with a new Phoenix crankshaft and rods. The cosmetics and bodywork were by now somewhat tired and in need of a thorough and careful refurbishment. This work was carried out to the highest possible standards, the later fabric and old skins removed from the wood frame, and the wood repaired where necessary. The entire car was repainted in Brewster Green using traditional and correct nitro-cellulose paint, echoing the works Napier Green racers. The leather upholstery was completely retrimmed and chosen to match the coachwork, while all brightwork was exquisitely re-plated in contrasting nickel, and the imposing high-quality Carl Zeiss headlights, which had been on the car from the 1950s, were retained. The result is simply stunning, it has taken a car that is rare by definition and placed it in a condition which very few of these cars have been treated to. In 2018, the Bentley has been freshly serviced by R.C. Moss and, adding to its extensive file, the car has received a report by Dr. Clare Hay.
354 1954 AC Ace Roadster AEO1 £380,000 £480,000 €433,200 £404,700 €457,350 $532,493 Mid
Pale Blue over Tan leather. RHD. 1st AC Ace built, displayed at the Earls Court Motor Show ’53, Silverstone ’54 Hurlock, Goodwood ’54 Dunham, Alpine Rally ’54 Hurlock 1st IC/ 11th OA, Paul Fletcher (1), Goodwood ’58 1st, Goodwood ’58 2nd, Mallory Park ’58 3rd, Bob Staples (2), Brands Hatch ’58 2nd, Brands Hatch ’59 1st IC, BARC Goodwood ’59 DNF, unknown, vendor ’69. Also on file are copies of correspondence between Bob Staples and AC Cars relating to his racing activities with ‘AE 01′ and their assistance with them. This most comprehensive history file also contains copies of Staples’ racing notes showing lap times, tyre pressures, weather conditions, results achieved during the 1958/59 seasons, etc; numerous copies of race reports describing the car’s successes; and a copy of the 1960 Whit Monday Goodwood programme cover showing ‘AE 01′ leading the field in the March 1959 event. By this time, AC-engined Aces were considered un-competitive, but Staples’ car was very successful and as fast as many of the Bristol-engined versions. In a letter on file he says: ‘The car went like the proverbial bomb, and I could give most AC Bristols a run for their money’. hen purchased, the AC clearly needed some work, so the first rebuild took place around 1970/1971. Everything was stripped out, the paintwork taken back to bare alloy, and the car re-sprayed. A new wiring loom was installed and various new components purchased, while the engine was rebuilt with new pistons, liners, valves, etc. Most of the chromium brightwork was re-plated and new shock absorbers fitted, as was a new stainless steel exhaust system. The chromework, amazingly, is still almost as good as new, and the shock absorbers and stainless exhaust are also still on the car. Apart from its periodic rebuilds, ‘AE 01’ has been used regularly and fairly continuously in the 49 years of the vendor’s ownership. While other cars came and went, the Ace survived. Between 1994 and 1999, a complete ‘last nut and bolt’ body-off restoration was undertaken, including a professional interior re-trim. The Ace was stripped to bare metal, the body was taken off the chassis, poor areas of aluminium were cut out and replaced, and the body was carefully replaced. The chassis was stripped, re-painted, and all necessary parts, bushes etc replaced. It was then re-sprayed in cellulose after many of the inner body panels had been replaced, while at the same time, the engine was rebuilt and all components either renewed or refurbished (details on file). Subsequent works have included suspension bushing (2001); engine work with new pistons and liners (2003); leaf springs reset and re-tempered, radiator refurbished (2010); engine fully rebuilt by AC specialist Rod Briggs, carburettors and distributor fully refurbished (2013); new Michelin X tyres and new windscreen glass fitted (2015); new battery fitted, cylinder head tested and work done following No.1 cylinder leak (2017). In addition, in 2017 the correct wood-rim steering wheel was repaired and fitted having been off the car for at least 30 years. The full width curved screen is a one-off; it is not a Cobra or normal Ace curved windscreen. The screen is wider and shallower, and the side arms are fabricated specifically to give a much more angled mounting than the standard straight arms. Some other, more minor, modifications have been made since the Ace was purchased in 1969; these include a cartridge-type spin-on oil filter; halogen headlights (the original P700s are among the spares); a battery/ignition cut out switch; and K&N carburettor air filters (much more efficient). During the full rebuild of 1994-1999, captive fittings were fitted wherever possible, e.g. for wiring loom clips, ancillary electrical fittings and so on, facilitating speedy removal and replacement. As well as the aforementioned documentation, the exceptionally comprehensive and detailed history file contains copious correspondence between the vendor and various suppliers and other AC enthusiasts; a vast quantity of MoT certificates dating back to 1969; and numerous invoices on file for the more recent restoration (close inspection recommended). Amongst the correspondence are original letters from Betty Haig, talking about the car’s early history, with whom the owner was in touch at that time. More recently AE 01 was a feature car in Stephen Bayley’s book Cars (etc….), published in 2008. AE 01 has been recently MOT’d to April 2019. Covering only 1,000-1,500 miles annually, the Ace has, arguably, been almost ‘over maintained’, with at least 2-3 on-ramp inspections in recent years for routine cleaning, greasing, etc of the underside. The vendor has always liked his cars to be pretty much as good underneath as they are on top, and the Ace is no exception, as an under bonnet inspection will verify. Having said that, ‘AE 01’ is no ‘trailer queen’ but a very honest car, as well as an historic one representing a unique opportunity for the discerning collector.
355 1954 Lancia Appia Saloon 5894 £70,000 £80,000 Not sold N/A
Grey over Grey. RHD. First registered as ‘RA 20851′ in Ravenna, the Appia appears to have changed hands by 1956 when it was entered in that year’s Rally Lido di Venezia driven by Sergio Lipizer. The Lancia also competed in the Rally Sestriere in 1957. It is currently fitted with a FIAT twin-cam engine, though when this conversion was done is not known. By 1978 the Appia was in the ownership the Scianna family of Padua, there being bills on file addressed to Dr Rosario Scianna (1978) and Dr Francesco Scianna (1994) together with an ACI registration document (issued December 2011) in the name of Emma Scianna. While in the Sciannas’ possession the Appia has competed in the Targa Florio (1986), Vernasca Silver Flag (2006 and 2015), Grand Tour of Sicily ‘Targa Florio’ (2009), and Mille Miglia (2010). Copies of the car’s original Italian libretto, various press cuttings, and the aforementioned bills may be found in the car’s extensive history file (inspection recommended).

Mako Blue over Light Grey leather. Aston Martin prototype, vendor ’13 (1). Testing ‘RS01’ at Silverstone, Autocar’s Steve Cropley, was just as impressed by the V12 Vantage RS’s stopping power: ‘The brakes are phenomenal. They simply eliminate speed like nothing I’ve ever experienced, squeezing the car into the road and making you hang forward on the straps.’ As well as EVO, Top Gear, and Autocar, RS01′ also featured in Motor Sport, Car, and Vantage magazines, and copies of all their articles are on file. In June 2008, ‘RS01’ attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed and during 2009/2010 was on display at the British Motor Heritage Museum, Gaydon. Retained by Aston Martin, it was sold by them to the current vendor – a VIP client – in 2013. The odometer was zeroed at that time, since when ‘RS01’ has completed only some 7-8 track-days of running – approximately 750 miles. In October 2017, ‘RS01’ was back at the Aston Martin Special Projects (Q Advanced Operations) department at Wellesbourne where extensive re-commissioning and various other works were carried out in order to make the car road legal (via the IVA procedure). At the same time the 10-year-old fuel cell was replaced. Details of these works are on file in the form of a factory-prepared brochure outlining the V12 Vantage RS’s history, and the car also comes with current MoT and a V5C registration document and a spare’s package (see list on file).

Cream over Black leather. RHD. via Henlys to unknown, UK, later with a single family from 1985 to 2016. In 1985, this XK was prepared for rallying and tours, including the Pirelli Marathon, while three years later, in 1988, it benefited from extensive works carried out by Roman Garage near Grantham. These works were supervised by the late W E ‘Wilkie’ Wilkinson, celebrated former team mechanic with Écurie Écosse and BRM (see invoice on file). The original engine being deemed beyond repair, an overhauled and tuned (9.0:1 compression ratio) 3.8-litre unit was installed, while at the same time the braking system was up-rated with XK150 discs all round. Since then, the car has been rallied regularly, including the 2001 Rally of the Tests, featuring as the main illustration in Classic & Sports Car magazine’s article on the event. Roman Garage continued to service the XK on a regular basis, as evidenced by bills on file. The file also contains an old-style green logbook, V5C registration document, Heritage Trust Certificate, and numerous MoT certificates, the earliest dating back to 1972.

Silver over Blue leather. RHD. Race prepared by Tipton Garage, UK. After a lengthy search for a suitable donor, this right-hand drive 300SE ‘Fintail’ was stripped down to the bare shell and rebuilt from the ground upwards to racing specification, including a FIA-compliant full roll cage and all mandatory safety equipment. Both the engine and the four-speed manual gearbox were painstakingly rebuilt at Tipton Garage by Richard’s son, Stephen Miles, a former development engineer at Janspeed Engineering where he was a key member of the team responsible for running Nissan’s works effort in the British Touring Car Championship. A limited-slip differential was installed, while the original power-assisted steering was retained to reduce driver fatigue – these big Mercedes-Benz saloons are heavy! Goodwood’s particular insistence on the retention of period features on historic saloons meant that the Mercedes had to keep its factory steel wheels and full interior trim. Like that of its ‘Ponton’ stablemate, this car’s attention to detail has seen it acknowledged as one of the best presented entries at the Goodwood Revival, even impressing visiting directors of Mercedes-Benz. Completed in 1998, this historic racer has been invited to all applicable St Mary’s Trophy races since the Goodwood Revival was instigated 20 years ago. In those early Revivals, the then owner co-drove with Octane magazine’s renowned journalist/racer, Mark Hales, and later with a succession of celebrities including racing legends such as Sir Jack Brabham, Richard Attwood, Brian Redman, Jochen Mass, and Derek Daly, as well as motoring enthusiast and actor, Rowan Atkinson. ‘HTW 519B’ has also competed at the Nürburgring’s ‘Nordschleife’ Marathon three times; at the Silverstone Classic on numerous occasions; and at many HRDC events. During this 17-year period, the car was always maintained regardless of cost by Tipton Garage, who kept it in first class order. When the owner/driver retired from active participation in motor sports, both of his historic Mercedes-Benz racers were purchased by the current vendor. The current owner acquired the car in January 2016 and is only offering it for sale today for medical reasons. This Mercedes (and its 220S stablemate) has been maintained to a very high standard by Ian Nuthall’s ‘INRacing’, specialists in historic competition cars of all kinds, and is presented in ready-to-race condition. Offered with old-style FIA papers, this well-known Mercedes-Benz racing saloon represents a wonderful opportunity to own a car having one of the longest associations with Goodwood’s much loved Revival meeting.

Remarkably, despite being over 60 years old, ‘WAU 532’ has never been restored; rather, this wonderful XK140 has been maintained and serviced throughout its life and is a really honest car, ready to use ‘as is’ or restore.

British Racing Green over Green leather. RHD. Unknown, Edgar Cogger ’62, Claro Auto Works ’60s, Michael Sterling ’70s, stored until ’82, unnamed, restored, vendor ’04. The car’s lack of use meant that various issues required attention, including freeing-off the seized brakes, overhauling the suspension, and having new half-shafts manufactured. Fortunately the six-cylinder Continental-based engine had already been fitted with marque specialist John Shaw’s improved cylinder head, which ensures adequate cooling. The Continental 8F engines were sleeved down by Marendaz to 1,869cc, presumably for taxation purposes, but this unit (non-original but of correct type) retains its factory capacity of 2,394cc. While in the present ownership, the Marendaz has been looked after by Riley specialist Keith Ponting, who has helped keep it in sound condition.

Silver over Red leather. RHD. via Black & White Garages to Billington, UK (1), regularly serviced, unknown, This beautiful 190 SL comes complete with its original plastic wallet containing the original owner’s manual, service booklet, and parts catalogue.

Rosso over Nero leather. US car, Robert Gharibi.
