1965 Mercedes-Benz 220 SE Coupé
1965 Mercedes-Benz 220 SE Coupé \n\nRegistration: DEY 845C \n\nChassis Number: 11102112200007 \n\nOdometer reading: 81,108 miles \n\nThe Mercedes-Benz W111 series was produced from 1959 to 1968 and was one of Mercedes top-of-range vehicles. They were elegant and well built vehicles aimed at wealthy or successful individuals who appreciate a finer finish to their motorcars. In 1957 the design began for the two-door Pontons. Most of the chassis and drive train were to be unified with the saloon and therefore the emphasis was on exterior styling. Some of the prototypes show that Mercedes-Benz attempted to give the two-door car a front styling similar to the Pagoda Roadster, whilst the rear bodywork was officially still called a 'fintail' although the rear end design had no chrome fin highlights. Production began in late 1960 and the Coupé was premiered in Stuttgart for the 75th anniversary of the opening of The Mercedes-Benz Museum. The 220 SE Coupé variant was met with instant success and Mercedes-Benz went on to produce 14,173 examples. This highly collectable example presents a combination that is most striking; Mercedes-Benz black with a contrasting blood red leather interior. This car underwent a full restoration in 2016 whilst with its previous Dutch owner. The restoration included a complete strip down (interior out) to bare metal and a full repaint. All the seating was re-upholstered and then reconstructed in the correct Mercedes-Benz fashion. The wooden dash and door cappings were all beautifully fitted and are now as new. In 2017 this Pillarless Coupé was given to renowned Mercedes-Benz specialists, SS Motors of Weybridge to ensure that the engine is set up beautifully and in 2018 was fitted with a fully reconditioned differential. This W111 carries one of the most elegant profiles of all post-war Mercedes-Benz and is offered with a UK registration document. \n\nRestored example \n\nRecent overhauled differential Historics at Brooklands
1998 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V
1998 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V <br> Transmission: manual <br> Mileage: 52000 <br><br> The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has had ten official versions to date; all use two-litre, turbocharged engines and all-wheel drive systems. Originally intended only for Japanese markets, demand led the Evolution series to be offered through Ralliart dealer networks in the UK. The Evolution II was upgraded in December 1993 with handling improvements, wheelbase adjustments and bodywork tweaks. February 1995 saw the arrival of the Evolution III which had more aggressive styling and improved air supply. The Lancer platform was completely changed in 1996 with the engine and transaxle rotated 180° to better balance the weight and eliminate torque steer. Lancer Evolutions were successful in WRC Rallies from 1996 to 1999, mostly in the hands of Finnish driver Tommi Mäkinen, clinching driver's titles in four-consecutive seasons from 1996 to 1999 in Evolutions III, IV, V, and VI. This stunning Evolution V was manufactured in 1998, imported and registered in the UK on 1st August, 2015. The engine was subjected to a race rebuild by renowned specialists Field Motorsport in January, 2017. Tommy Field became noticed for his impeccable engine builds, most famously building Francoise Delacour's winning WRC engine in 1994. The build consisted of forged internals including rods, pistons, cams as well as a brand new turbo costing some £6,200 with invoices in the supplied history file. The vendor informs us the engine is as new and capable of delivering some 500bhp. Supplied with an MoT test certificate valid until 28th July, 2017 and two sets of keys, it is finished in the desirable colour scheme of silver with a black and blue interior. With second to none rally pedigree, this Evo offers fantastic value for money as it is offered at no reserve; it will surely bring out your inner Tommi Mäkinen! <br><br> Estimate: No Reserve Historics at Brooklands
1977 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II
1977 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II \n\nRegistration: ETU 956S \n\nChassis Number: SRH 32519 \n\nEngine Number: 32519 \n\nOdometer reading: 53,480 miles \n\nThe Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was released to the public in October 1965. This new model was ten years in development and the new series was characterised by surprisingly modern features. Rolls-Royce broke new ground and broke away from many sacred design principles. The new models were technically striking in three ways; a monocoque chassis was used, all the wheels were sprung independently and four wheel disc brakes ensured stopping power of that expected in a modern car. Under the bonnet, the V8 engine that had been introduced in the Silver Cloud series was employed. In February 1977, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II was introduced. Outwardly, the models were identifiable by bumpers with rubber inserts and edges made from polyurethane. The most notable mechanical changes were to the rack and pinion steering, there was also modifications to the front suspension which improved handling markedly. The car had been subjected to extensive wind tunnel testing, the result of which created a car with much better stability at high speed. \n\nLow mileage \n\nGood condition Historics at Brooklands
1973 Porsche 911 T Targa
1973 Porsche 911 T Targa Registration BVX 25L Chassis Number 9113510753 Odometer reading 24,172 miles One of only 53 UK righthand drive cars manufactured\n1973 UK car originally sold by AFN Isleworth\nThe original Porsche 911 was introduced in autumn 1963 and manufactured until 1989. It was succeeded by a modified version, internally referred to as Porsche 964, but still sold as Porsche 911, as are current models. Mechanically, the 911 was notable for being rear engine and air cooled and, from its inception, the 911 was modified both by private teams and the factory itself for racing, rallying and other types of competition. The original 911 series is often cited as the most successful competition car ever, especially when its variations are included; namely the powerful 911 derived 935 which won the 24 Hours Le Mans and other major sports car races outright against prototypes.\nPresented in its original colour and offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this stunning example is one of only 53 UK right hand drive cars believed to have been manufactured. The Heritage Certificate denotes factory options from new including Koni dampers, sports seats, sports brakes, rear wiper and tinted windows. This example has had the benefit of many thousands of pounds spent over the last five decades and comes with a vast history file complete with invoices, receipts, old log books and MoT's, the highlight of which is an invoice for £12,000 for a complete mechanical overall by respected marque specialists, Canford Classics.\nOur current owner, a self proclaimed petrol head with an eye for early Porsche models, has recently had the car repainted in its original colours and we are informed this was at significant expense. New rubbers and gaskets have been replaced where required together with new carpets. Serviced by the official Porsche Centre at Brooklands in January of this year at a cost of £1,700, this Targa example is sold with long MoT test certificate. We are informed the car drives and presents beautifully but is by no means a garage queen with trips to both Cornwall and the south west of France this summer. This is a great usable 2.4 litre Porsche in arguably one of the best colour schemes, it is collectable and with a fabulous history sure to be popular with auction attendees. Historics at Brooklands
