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

By the early 1960s, road-car production had ceased to be a sideline for Ferrari and was seen as vitally important to the company’s future stability. Thus the 250, Ferrari’s first volume-produced model, can be seen as critically important, although production of the first of the Read More
Aright-hand-drive car, like all Alfa Romeos prior to the 1900 model, chassis 915910 was completed with a Villa d’Este coupé body by Carrozzeria Touring. It is believed to have stayed in Sicily for most of its life, although its early history is not known.
In 2006 the car was discovered in Sicily in barn-find condition and purchased as a restoration project by the previous owner, Mr. Dambacher.
Mr. Dambacher then commissioned a total restoration with Read More
