Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Ghia, the DeTomaso Mangusta was first introduced in 1967. Only 401 cars were manufactured until production ceased in 1971, with its successor being the well-known DeTomaso Pantera.
Housing a 289-ci Ford V8, mated to a 5-speed ZF manual transmission, the Mangusta served out over 300 bhp. In standard trim, the specification included all-around disc brakes, four-wheel independent suspension and electric windows — a luxury for a supercar of its time. When opened to reveal the Read More
Like a surface vein of gold in the Sierra Nevada of California in 1848, Lancias have suddenly been discovered by the larger collector car world.
Long hidden in plain sight, these superbly over-engineered, pioneering and championship-winning cars are leaving behind their reputation for being woefully undervalued. Lancias are setting new auction records, and prices have hit levels scarcely imaginable by long-term Lancisti just a few years ago.
In point of fact, a very good argument could be raised for the Read More
1977 Ferrari 308 GTB Vetroresina
Chassis number 20271; engine number 00441
This superb fiberglass Ferrari 308 has always been fastidiously maintained. During its restoration it showed no signs of previous repair. The engine was refurbished in 2000.
The car has therefore been completely overhauled and fitted with a high-performance exhaust.
The current owner sent the car to Ferrari after purchasing, where they found no significant faults. The original rims with four new Michelin XWX tires were installed after our photos Read More
The first Series I cars produced between late 1969 and early 1970 are identified by the fresh-air exhaust vents located on the rear hatch. Datsun quickly realized that they had hit the mark with the modern lines and overhead-cam 6-cylinder that redlined at 7,000 rpm.
Restored to like-new condition, this 240Z is one of the most pristine examples on the market. The only thing this car lacks to be a ZCCA gold-medallion car is the factory wheels and hubcaps, as Read More
1958 Aceca Bristol chassis BEX678
The Aceca Bristol offered here has its original Bristol engine, the number of which matches the car’s original firewall tag. According to the consignor, John Moir, the car’s original owner was Peter Winston, the son of renowned New York City jeweler Harry Winston.
Young Mr. Winston used the car as an everyday driver in Manhattan for some years, after which he sold it through an acquaintance to Tom Hickey, a well-known motorcycle and sports car Read More

DPE 608B was purchased new by the current vendor on August 12, 1964, from BMC dealer Jackson’s Garages of Godalming, Surrey. The Mini was primarily his road car but was raced whenever the opportunity arose. Early outings included Rufforth and Cadwell Park, both in September 1964, and Goodwood on March 13, 1965 (original program on file).
The Mini then passed through the hands of various other owners. In 2004, the vendor was able to buy it from Gordon Cameron, who Read More

• All the original manuals
• Recent engine rebuild
• Just 630 examples built
The series “G” of the 911 appeared in the autumn of 1973, the seventh generation of the 911 since it was first presented in 1963. The consistently high-performing Carrera, now minus the “RS” in its name, sat at the very top of the 1974–75 range.
An external difference to the previous year’s model was the addition of more imposing Read More
In September of 1959, Porsche revealed their fully updated 356 known as the 356B. This had a completely revised body that was more suitable for the American market. The 356B used the new T-5 body style, which raised the front and rear bumpers nearly four inches. Furthermore, the headlights were also repositioned higher to meet American regulations. Inside, Porsche fitted a new deep-dish steering wheel and deeper front seats.
New to the model was the Type 616/7 Super 90 engine, Read More
At the 1971 Geneva Salon de L’Automobile exhibition, Ferrari launched another new model. This was the GTC/4 as offered here, which was presented as a more sober and discreet alternative to the blisteringly high-performance Daytona. But the GTC/4 was really more closely related to the 365 GT 2+2, which it had replaced on the Pininfarina assembly line.
The GTC/4 had two small rear seats tailored for small children or perhaps for short-distance use by one adult, sitting across the car. Read More
