Our Rapide is particularly well preserved. Its clear history, as well as its low mileage, explain its excellent state of conservation. This car was bought new by its current owner in August 2010 at Aston Martin Paris.
The odometer reading is just 7,780 km. The equipment list is most comprehensive, and the interior comfort sometimes makes you forget the magnificent sound of the 6-liter V12, mated to an automatic gearbox. In superb condition, this exceptional car, with its impressive sound, Read More
The Fiat 1100 TV offered here participated in the Mille Miglia in two years — 1954 and 1955 — crewed by Ing. Guglielmo Franchi and Rafaello Zanasi. On file is a copy of the car’s original Automobile Club d’Italia identity document showing that it was registered new to Guglielmo Franchi in February 1954 with the Bologna registration 64215 BO. This registration can be seen clearly in accompanying photographs showing the Fiat on the Mille Miglia start ramp in 1954 and Read More
One of only about 184 right-hand-drive models manufactured, and representing the 308 in its ultimate, Quattrovalvole form, this example was supplied via the U.K. importer, Maranello Concessionaires, and delivered new to the first owner in Perth, Australia.
This Ferrari has been in the present ownership for five years, impeccably maintained. Driven to the sale, it comes with full service history and all receipts for maintenance. All the original tools and the original radio are included.
Porsche Classic has manufactured the last 911 Turbo with an air-cooled engine — 20 years after the last one left the assembly line! The result of years of meticulous work and attention to the very smallest of details by the expert craftsmen at Porsche Classic, this very special show car, the only one of its kind that will ever be completed, is offered at the Porsche 70th Anniversary Sale at the Porsche Experience Center Atlanta on 27 October, after having Read More
The BMW 850 CSi was the factory’s flagship model in the mid-1990s. It featured the silky-smooth S70 V12 engine mated to a Getrag 6-speed manual transmission and was one of the first cars to offer drive-by-wire throttle control.
Developed from the M70, the S70 increased the bore and stroke and utilized more-aggressive valve timings, resulting in an increase in maximum power to an impressive 380 hp at 5,300 and torque to 402 ft-lb at 4,000 rpm. With the hydraulic control Read More
Despite the enormous success of its production-based race cars throughout its history, Porsche rarely developed such models as official factory entries, preferring instead to support them in the hands of privateer customers. One of the notable exceptions occurred in the mid-1980s with the advent of one of Stuttgart’s most celebrated and advanced models, the 959.
Longtime Porsche driver Jacky Ickx clarified his interest in developing a 959-based entrant in the Paris-Dakar Rally. Ickx was already driving Porsche 956 examples to Read More
Muscle cars dominated my Southern California high-school parking lot at the end of the 1960s.
There were Mustangs, Camaros and even the odd Road Runner. Then there were my friends, tweed caps and all, with our Sprites, TR3s and MGAs. There was even a Mini. We were too young for briar pipes, but we could dream, couldn’t we?
But for some reason there were no Triumph Spitfires. So I never sat in one in period, and only saw a few. Read More
Elva sports racers — designed by Frank Nichols — enjoyed considerable success during the 1950s and 1960s on both sides of the Atlantic. A Kentish garage owner, Nichols had commissioned a Ford-engined special with which to go racing, and the result, the CSM, was first seen in 1954.
Nichols put his next creation into production under the name Elva. The Elva featured a simple, light and rigid tubular chassis. Major departures from the CSM were the Standard Ten-based front suspension Read More
This one-owner, unmodified 1997 Acura Integra Type R is number 37 of the 320 made for the U.S. market that year and has 1,191 actual miles.
It has its original Championship White paint, and the interior is black suede with red stitching. The Type R engine comes hand-ported by factory Acura tuners to produce nearly 200 horsepower from the normally aspirated 1.8-liter 4-cylinder VTEC engine.
These front-wheel-drive cars were outfitted with several unique components, all with performance in mind. A Read More
The 6.3 we are proud to offer recently received extensive mechanical work, which was conducted to bring an already well-preserved car to tip-top shape. The drivetrain was an area of particular focus for those involved in the project, and the engine was taken out to be thoroughly overhauled. The transmission was also treated to a similar procedure. With both removed, it provided an opportunity to refinish the engine compartment, and as such, a fresh coat of paint was sprayed within. Read More
