Lamborghini Countach 25th anniversary
Is this one of the most iconic “poster cars” from this era of production! A car that was firmly planted upon the walls of any petrol head’s bedroom of the time ! We are honoured to present to you this Lamborghini Countach 25th anniversary model. A model produced to celebrate Lamborghini’s 25th year as a company and was revealed at the 1988 Italian Grand Prix at Monza - it arguably went on to become THE most identifiable Countach ever built. It is also one of the rarest available too being one of just 658 anniversary’s built but more importantly only of just 57 Right hand drive cars too. This particular example (order number 1278) was by placed in October 1988 at the cost of £5000 just to reserve a built allocation. This was in anticipation of delivery in early 1990. The documents confirm the order number was then in fact sold in December 1988 to the gentleman who then became the first owner. The vehicle received by the first owner at Portman Lamborghini of 108, George street, London. It was registered to the first owner on 11th May 1990 who owned the car up to 2008. While in his ownership he stored the vehicle at “store-a-car” (a professional storage facility) throughout his ownership to ensure of the most ideal of environments for the cars protection. Most recently the vehicle has been subjected to a full mechanical “recommission” in 2019 at the cost of over £11500 (a breakdown can be given on enquiry) along with a full paint enhancement and 5 year Ceramic coating also carried out in December 2020 by ourselves too while in storage. We invite serious enquiry’s only on this truly stunning and iconic super car. Worthy of any collectors garage boasting the correct credentials for value appreciation ! International shipping can be organised along with avenues for funding too. Please contact us for details
1964 MGB Coune Berlinette race car
MGB Berlinette by Jacques Coune - The ultimate MGB? Handcrafted by Belgian coachbuilder Jacques Coune in the early 1960's shortly after the manufacturing of the MGB Roadster began but before the prototype and launch of the factory MGB GT. Less than 56 examples are known to have been built During manufacturing there was a meeting with both Jacques Coune and Sir Alex Issisgonis to discuss the potential of the Berlinette being manufactured by BMC. This however this never materialised due to opinions of many being that the Berlinette design "looked too italian"! Even though they were very well manufactured using Jacques Coune's methods they were not commercially viable costing almost doubt to build compared to the standard MGB. This particular example is 1 of just 12 remaining and is the only car to have been converted into a race car. In most recent years it has competed at Goodwood in 2002 and 2010 by the late owner Mr Bob Ridgard. Since the car was last completed it has been subjected to a full strip down and rebuild including a full driveline (details can be specified upon enquiry). A chance to acquire one of the rarest cars MGB's ever produced. £89995
1954 Swallow Doretti Manual O/D "FAST ROAD"
A wonderful example of a well presented “useable” Swallow Doretti. A rare car from the outset with just 276 cars produced from 1954 to 1955 utilising the underpinnings And power train of a Triumph TR2! This particular example is car number 211 and was originally registered in Scotland as NGG533. It has been in its current ownership since August 1998 when it was purchased out of the very well known Duncan Rabaglieti car Collection as a 4/5’s finished restoration project by an active enthusiast within the Doretti circles. Upon purchase the car was taken straight to T&M classics in Thame who then put the car back onto the road. Ever since then car has been actively used for touring (visiting Le Mans classic In 2008,2010,2012,2014) To name but a few trips while returning great performance and 100% reliability ! The engine has seemingly been “tweaked” As it revs much more freely than a standard car and is noticeably nippier than a standard car suggesting a reworked cylinder head and a light bed and balanced crank. The interior is lovely - presented with the original recovered seats and re-trimmed panels and carpets carried out by Alan greater who also made and fitted the tonneau cover too. The chassis is in fantastic condition sporting a regularly maintained suspension and braking system to ensure the best driving experience possible. As a result the feedback from the car doesn’t disappoint. It starts “on the button” every time and provides a Cheshire Cat smile in equal measures ! The body is very nice but with some slight room for improvement cosmetically. The paintwork is over 20 years old now and so in areas it can be improved if perfection is required however it is more than presentable as it is! A great, rare, usable classic Ready to go! All of our cars are inspected and serviced by TR Enterprises “subject to sale agreement” to ensure a “ trouble free” experience.
1974 PANTHER J72
A beautifully prepared and maintained example of a rare breed of motor car
One of just 368 example produced from 1972 through to 1981. Their DNA was mostly Jaguar for running gear. These vehicles were mostly owned by the rich and famous (this example not being an exception) due to being owned by a former USA Senator. this example is just simply wonderful boasting almost concours levels of quality. Recent works include a full professional bare metal respray in its original factor colour (Parr green) of which only 3 cars were produced. This was then followed buy a mechanical freshen up by Jaguar marque specialist “David Marks garages” and as a result this vehicle is just faultless to drive. Ample power is produced from its 4.2 litre engine through its manual gear box and beam axle which provide a true event when propelling down country roads ! This vehicle has covered just 17,800 miles from new and is supplied with full wet weather gear, a large history file and is also very well known within the panther circles Not to be missed!

Mercedes-Benz SLK AMG
Here we have a very desirable 24th December 2004 registered SLK 55 AMG, finished in Telurium Silver (762U) with contrasting leather/nappa/semi-aniline Black/Anthracite (851A) interior. List price in 2004 was in excess of £50k, with our super example only having covered just under 26000 miles, you can drive away safe in the knowledge that you have grabbed a bargain! In 2007 this vehicle was exported to France, coming back to England in 2016 with 20000 on the odometer. It may be badged 55 but it actually uses a normally aspirated 5.4-litre engine with 360bhp. However, thanks to the light weight of the roadster, it has superb acceleration and pace, making it great fun to drive. The automatic 7 speed gearbox works as it should, quiet and very smooth. The extra AMG body kit and larger wheels suit the SLK shape well and it also has some exquisite detailing inside, while build quality is second to none. It's expensive to run, but as the ultimate SLK, it's a superb convertible The vehicle is equipped with front and side (head and thorax) airbags, traction control and electronic stability control The AMG sports seats are electrically adjustable and the steering column adjusts electrically for reach and height, so it's easy to get a good driving position. The instrument dials are clear and easy to read while the controls for the roof are located in front of the handbrake. Visibility is pretty good with the roof up, bearing in mind you sit quite low. The cabin is very spacious for a sports convertible and thanks to excellent refinement and the metal folding roof, it's a convertible that can be driven all year round. Air conditioning with electrically adjustable seats and an electric steering column. The seats are heated and it was fitted with the desirable Airscarf feature from the options list - a vent below the head restraint blows warm air around your neck, allowing owners to take advantage of roof-down motoring all through the year. There is hardly any buffeting with the roof down up to about 60mph and a fabric wind deflector comes as standard. Showing 6 former keepers on the V5C, low ownership for a vehicle purchased mainly as a weekend ‘toy’. Data sheet shows all the standard features and indeed the options chosen at the time of manufacture This vehicle will come fully serviced & full MOT.
1963 MG B ROADSTER
An older restoration built to a relatively standard spec but for an Unleaded head conversion
Just 5 former keepers from new with a wonderful history file and with a credible mileage of just 54,000 miles from new. This vehicle is still supplied today with its two 6 volt batteries as per factory spec. There is a full detailed breakdown of a full engine rebuild undertaken within the last 1500 miles of use (in 2010) where no stone was left un-turned along with a gearbox rebuild around the same time. The colour combination is as per its factory spec (tartan red coachwork and black trim) all of which is wonderfully presentable. All in all this is a wonderful example of an honest, usable and desirable early MG B with is begging to be used.
1968/F Daimler Sovereign 4.2 manual O/D
- A great rolling project -
A wonderful opportunity to purchase a rare Daimler Sovereign factory manual O/D. This is a car that we took in part exchange earlier this year. While it is completely road worthy (having been MOT's in june 2020 by its former keeper) their are areas for improvement aesthetically. Firstly the body. Although the car itself is very solid there are areas all over the coach work that require attention caused by "micro blistering" - With this in mind, to get the car to its previous "show condition" we would recommend a full respay. Aside from this the mechanicals are very good. The engine, gearbox and rear axle are nice and smooth giving a great feelback when wafting down the road! Most recently it has been subjected to various different works including replacement brake discs and pads all around and work to all 4 jacking points completed by a well known restoration firm. this work together was completed at the cost of over £5,000. The inteior presents well with a "patina'd" feel to the seats. Other than a small area of the headling that requires work the interior we feel should be left "as is" due to its originality! A great opportunity to obtain a usuable "rolling" project.
