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.

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.

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.

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.

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 inner wheel arches are also incredibly solid. There is no evidence anywhereo n the vehiucle of any previous repairs etc structurely.

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.
