1955-Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing-0

Every car fan in the world, regardless of their age and sex, fancies a Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing. It is one of only a handful of cars unanimously loved by everyone. And no body can resist a chance to ogle this car, especially a pristine example like the one we’ve got here.

This 1955 Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing belongs to the super deluxe Saudi showroom Seven Car Lounge who has sent it to expert detailer Select Nano in the UAE for a full spa treatment. This Gullwing is fully restored not just back to original glory, but beyond that to a Concours level excellence by the classic division of Brabus. The tuner has upgraded the cabin with new red leather upholstery, a wooden steering wheel and fitted luggage, and it looks amazing.

As for the technical details… ah, who cares. It’s an old car and drives like a tractor. Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing should not be driven, just admired. So feel free to do that as you browse the gallery:

PostHeaderIcon 1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV Up for Auction

1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV-0

The Diablo is considered by many classic car lovers to be the last of the true Lamborghinis, and by that they mean Lambos from the pre-Audi era, before the Germans injected the brand with a healthy dose of common sense. A wonderful example of these original bulls, a pristine 1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV, is now up for grabs.

Offered by Silverstone Auctions during their sale at the Practical Classics Restoration and Classic Car Show, this Pearl Red/Orange Lamborghini Diablo SV (one-off color) has covered only 32,000 miles and is significant not just because of the color, the condition, or the SVR badge it is sporting, but also because it was the last Diablo SV off the production line before they shut down the factory for the Christmas break. So it’s the last Diablo of the 20th Century!

1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV-2
1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV-3

Estimated at between £150,000 and £170,000, the 1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV also features grey/black leather/alcantara interior and still has its original Lamborghini tool roll, tyre inflator and a very luxurious, custom-made, fleece-lined indoor car cover in red with an embroidered Lamborghini logo. The car has undergone a chassis and suspension restoration in 2013 at a cost of over £10,000. So it’s ready to be driven. But you best put in a garage and wait a few years. It could easily triple or quadruple your investment.

PostHeaderIcon 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti Sells for Record $35.7 Million

Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti-0

This rather unattractive hunk of metal you see here is now one of the most expensive car ever sold, although it has ways to go before it reaches the $50+ million GTO models. The 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti was auctioned at Artcurial Motorcars Retromobile event for a cool $35,711,359.

At that kind of price, you would expect this car to have tons of pedigree, and of course, it doesn’t disappoint. Originally sold as a play thing to Pennsylvania architect Robert N. Dusek in 1960, the 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti has changed hands many times during its lifetime and also accomplished a lot.

Some of the most notable achievements of this 335 include a sixth place finish at Sebring 12 Hours, a second place finish at the Mille Miglia, a victory at Cuba Grand Prix in 1958, and a speed record at Le Mans 24 Hour averaging a lap speed of over 200 km/h.

This 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti proves that the collector cars market is hotter than ever as the bidding started on this car at $22.3 million. It is considered such a safe investment that somebody finally ended up paying 35 million for it, knowing that next year the car will be worth 45.

2004 Porsche Carrera GT-1

Of all the supercars launched in this century, and that includes the new flock of hyper cars, the Porsche Carrera GT is still one of the coolest and most desirable. So it’s quite an occasion every time one of these things becomes available for sale.

This 2004 Porsche Carrera GT in Silver Metallic with a black leather interior is going under the hammer later this month at Silverstone Auctions’ classic car sale at Race Retro. It has 18,018 miles on the clock, has been regularly serviced, and spent the best part of its life in America.

Naturally the GT is fully loaded with items like air-conditioning, CD player with Bose HiFi, Porsche Online Pro Satellite Navigation, adjustable steering column, electric windows, buckets seats, and carbon ceramic brakes with yellow calipers. This example also comes with a luggage set including a leather suit carrier, a leather briefcase bag and a leather day bag and a RUF suspension lift system.

Even though it’s well over a decade old and has a not-so-sophisticated manual gearbox and race-bred V10 engine, the Porsche Carrera GT can still hold its own against most of today’s million-horsepower hyper cars. It also delivers a much more engaging and thrilling driving experience than most. This GT is estimated at between £400,000 and £450,000.

PostHeaderIcon Spotlight: Lamborghini Miura at Brussels Auto Show

Lamborghini Miura Brussels-0

Photographer Julien Morin has already brought to us pictures of some of the most iconic classic cars at the 2016 Brussels Auto Show, including this amazing Ferrari 275 GTB Coupe. The next car we’re featuring here is a 1972 Lamborghini Miura. And it’s so gorgeous, you’re going to hate every other car you see!

The Giallo beauty that is this Lamborghini Miura must be one of the best preserved examples of the car anywhere in the world. Miuras like this can fetch up to 2,500,000 Euros in auctions, and that’s what they cost today. Next year it’ll be 3.5 million, and the year after that it’ll be 5 million.

It is a bit of a bummer that prices have gone so insane, because Lamborghini Miura is a full-blooded supercar – many would argue the original supercar – that is meant to be driven. The car packs a 385 horsepower V12 engine which gives it a top speed of 290 km/h. Granted, the front-end tends to lift off at anything above 200 km/h, but that’s because of the unique shape of the car and therefore absolutely all right.

Then again, there aren’t that many Miuras are left and if locking them up in private garages is the only way to keep them around, so be it.

PostHeaderIcon Blast from the Past: EVO Tests Lamborghini Countach

Lamborghini Countach-evo

Thanks to the UK’s prestigious auction houses, the boys at EVO Magazine are having a great time these days, getting to drive some of the world’s most iconic – not to mention expensive – classic car. So after sampling a Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing, they now get to have a go in 1981 Lamborghini Countach.

This is the same Lamborghini Countach we reported on earlier, going under the hammer at a Silverstone Auctions event with an estimate of between £200,000 and £250,000. The yellow color makes this particular example look more modern than an 80s car, which some may like while others would count it as a negative.

Lamborghini Countach is often credited as the world’s first proper supercar, the original pin-up machine, the one that started it all. And it sort of is, if we don’t take into account the fact that it Lamborghini’s other amazing creation, the Miura, that invented the whole boutique super car niche. The Countach is still a pretty impressive thing to have though, and a safe investment, too.

PostHeaderIcon Spotlight: Ferrari 275 GTB Coupe

Ferrari 275 GTB Coupe-0

One of the biggest attraction of this year’s Brussels Motor Show was the classic car section hosted in a retro location and including some pretty wonderful gems. Among those gems one car captured our attention, and that was the magnificent 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB Coupe.

Finished in a lovely cream and preserved in pristine condition, this Ferrari 275 GTB Coupe is one of those cars they would send to space… if someday they wanted to host an intergalactic exhibition of human achievements for the alien races to see. It would be displayed next to the works of Rembrandt and da Vinci. It is that good.

But if you fancy owning it here on earth, it is possible, but you have to set aside 2,400,000 Euros which is what a Ferrari 275 GTB Coupe costs today. Next year, it will probably be five million. But if you do get it, besides the gorgeous looks you also receive a 3.3 liter Ferrari V12 engine with 300 horsepower and a heavenly soundtrack. Not that you would drive this car very often. It’d be like using a tracing paper on the Mona Lisa.

PostHeaderIcon Auction Find: 1981 Lamborghini Countach 400S

1981 Lamborghini Countach-1

Lamborghini Countach is without a doubt one of the most desirable, and highly collectible, classic cars in the world. Amazingly though, the prices have not yet gone insane with this car and you can still pick one of these, like this one here, at auctions for a reasonable sum of money.

Granted, the estimate on this 1981 Lamborghini Countach 400S is between £200,000 and £250,000, and it’ll probably end up selling for more than that. But still, compared to similarly significant cars, especially contemporary Ferraris, it doesn’t sound that bad.

1981 Lamborghini Countach-2

Now, there are a few niggles, let’s say, about this Countach that might put off the hard-core collectors looking for perfection. It is one of only seven right-hand drive examples ever produced, and it has covered 61,155 km (38,221 miles). The Pearl Yellow exterior with Oatmeal Leather with a Black Suede dash top also may not be to everyone’s taste. And it’s said to be in just ‘good’ condition, not great. But hey, at the end of the day, it’s still a Countach!

1981 Lamborghini Countach-3

Commenting on the car ahead of the sale, Nick Whale, managing director of Silverstone Auctions, said: “The Lamborghini Countach is truly an iconic supercar and a car that every collector should take the opportunity to own at some point. This particular example is a fabulous piece of 1970’s road art and is worthy of consideration, especially as a low-mileage 1981 LP400S-Series III has recently changed hands in the International market for a substantial sum, and other LP400S’ appear to be changing hands for figures well in excess of our guide price here.”

PostHeaderIcon Vintage Military Dodge WC56 Spotted in France

Dodge WC56-0

Talk about cool World War II memorabilia! An awesome guy in Rennes, France, is driving around a Dodge WC56, one of the military trucks American GIs left behind after the liberation of France from Nazi Germany.

Say what you want, but driving around town in this is, to us, way cooler than any hyper car you can name. Dodge WC56 is a museum piece, especially one with original numbers and logos of its unit.

According to Wikipedia, the WC series military trucks included weapon carriers, telephone installation trucks, ambulances, reconnaissance vehicles, mobile workshops and command cars. This one is a 56 model which was used exclusively for reconnaissance missions. These Dodges don’t have the charisma or the enduring legacy of the Willys Jeep, but I think it’s about time we recognized this vehicle for the hero that it is.

  • Weight: 5,335 lb / 2 420 kg

PostHeaderIcon Gallery: Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster

Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster-0

The latest addition to TopCar’s superb collection of iconic classics is a beautiful 1996 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster. The car is basically a one-off on account of it being a special commission boasting a unique grey paint job and a white interior with carbon fiber trim.

The Diablo is considered to the last of properly brutal Lamborghinis as it belongs to the pre-Audi era. That said, Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster is a bit softer and tamer than the normal Diablos, as it features an all-wheel-drive system – hence the VT designation which stands for viscous traction. The system delivers up to 25 percent of the 530-hp V12 engine’s torque to the front wheels, giving the car better traction and the ability to hit 100 km/h front standing still in just 3.9 seconds.

But these days you don’y buy a car like this Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster to drive around in it. It’s a treasure. It’s an eye candy. And above all, it’s an investment. If we owned this car, we’d make a special place for it in the living room and just use as an ornament, something we can look at and enjoy all day long. Of course, being an Italian super car from the 90s, the VT would probably make a mess of the carpets spilling oil all over them!

PostHeaderIcon 1979 Lamborghini Countach Shines at Alain Class

1979 Lamborghini Countach-0

They don’t call Alain Class Motors the world’s best showroom for nothing. These guys are not just about the latest super cars. They also have a passion for classic cars, as shown with the new addition to their magnificent collection, a 1979 Lamborghini Countach.

Preserved in excellent condition, the unique Lamborghini Countach residing at Alain Class is finished in purple and features a blue interior, both of which looking almost brand-new. This combination makes this Countach an extremely rare version of extremely rare classic super car. Another thing this car has going for it is the mileage, which is only 38,700 km.

As for the technical details, the 1979 Lamborghini Countach is powered by a 4.0 liter DOHC V12 engine with six Weber horizontal two-barrel carburetors, developing 375 horsepower. These engines are prone to catch fire if you push them, but that is beside the point since no Countach owner actually drives the car. They just ogle it from time to time.

The car also features a five-speed manual transmission, sophisticated – for its time – suspension with A-arm up front and multi-link setup out back, and four wheel brake discs. And yes, everything is original and in tip-top shape.

Huston-based tuner Progressive Autosports is presenting yet another one of their finely restored classic cars for sale, this time an iconic American classic. The somewhat restomoded Progressive Autosports Charger R/T is going to make fans crazy with its superb specs.

The vintage yellow paint job garnished with matte black R/T graphics and stripes is the main highlight of the Progressive Autosports Charger R/T. But if you look closer you will appreciate other little details, such as the Cooper Cobra tires, the 440 Magnum badge referring to the V8 powertrain, the cool R/T rear spoiler, dual tailpipes, and the bonnet hooks like an old racing car.

But this is a restored model fully capable of being driven everyday if you want it to. A look at the clean engine bay with where the uprated 440 Magnum is resting ensures you the car is ready to roll. Just seat yourself inside the refreshed leather interior, slip the lever in D and floor that gas!

PostHeaderIcon RUF Porsche 930 “Flatnose” Spotted for Sale

RUF Porsche 930 Flatnose-0

If you love the mechanics of a classic Porsche 911 but hate the looks of it, then the old Flatnose 930 is the model you have to go for. And good news, because a great example of this car has been spotted on for sale at John Holland showroom in Sheffield, UK. This 1986 RUF Porsche 930 Flatnose is priced at £139,900.

That sounds to us like awesome value, since the 930 Flatnose is a rare collector’s car and because of the fact that this one if a RUF-tuned version with the BTR treatment. BTR stands for Group B rally spec, T for Turbo and R for RUF. So in a way, this bad boy is like a baby 959 with almost similar performance and, in our opinion, cooler design.

RUF Porsche 930 has undergone a major engine upgrade, with its flat-six motor upped in capacity from 3.3 to 3.4 liter and equipped with Mahle Pistons and connecting rods and 935 type camshafts, larger KKK K27 turbo, free flowing intercooler, new intake manifold and exhaust, and a larger oil cooler. The car is also fitted with a RUF aero kit and a set of RUF single piece forged wheels in sizes 9×17 and 10×17 on Dunlop SD Sport P40 tires front and rear.

Other goodies include an uprated Getrag gearbox, adjustable boost control and lowered suspension. Packing 374bhp (original 300bhp), the unique RUF Porsche 930 “Flatnose” can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds.

Edo Ferrari Testarossa-0

German tuner and car collector Edo Karabegovic has added yet another vintage beauty to his collection. It’s a pristine Ferrari Testarossa in Rosso Corsa, fully loaded with every option and with only 26k kilometers on the clock. And it could be your for 164,900 Euro.

Granted, that is a pretty huge price tag for a 1992 car, but not when it’s an appreciating classic like the Ferrari Testarossa in this condition. We mentioned it’s full option, but don’t expect anything particularly special. It’s a car from the 90s, so all you get is trip computer, electric windows, air conditioning, sport seats, radio, and central locking.

Edo’s Ferrari Testarossa has undergone complete inspection and upgrade by Ferrari in 2002, getting uprated brakes and 18-inch wheels to complement its mint leather and Alcantara interior.  It features Ferrari sports seats, Fox stainless steel muffler, and a 390 horsepower V12 engine.

But who cares about the options and parts. You buy a Ferrari Testarossa first and foremost because it’s a vintage classic, and second because it has one of the most iconic designs in the automotive history. It is an extremely lovely piece of kit, this car, and a must-have for every high-end collection. Enjoy the pictures…

PostHeaderIcon Them Low-Lows: 64 Impala Convertible on Forgiatos

64 Impala Forgiato-0

You cannot not think of Straight Outta Compton when you hear 64 Impala. This car was upgraded to the legendary status when the NWA gang – Dre, Cube and Easy-E – dropped the line “Cruising Down the street in my 64,” and now everybody wants one of these low-lows. Apparently, they want to hit “them corners” in them.

So here’s a pristine 1964 Impala Convertible in bright red, built by BTS and rocking a set of multi-spoke Forgiato Pinzette wheels in size 20-inch on all four corners. We are mighty glad they went for a decent, proper size rather than letting Forgiato hook the car up with some of their huge 30 inch rims. We also like the simple brushed finish with chromed lips that complement the chrome on the body of this Chevy.

The iconic design of the 64 Impala combined with the fact that it is powered by a small block Chevy engine and, above all, the street cred it has thanks to all those rap song, make this car a highly desirable object. Even if you, like us, find lowriders rather silly, you can’t deny the appeal of the Impala as a true classic. We just hope other restomoders learn a thing or two from BTS and Forgiato and dial down the lunacy when they get busy modernizing one of them 64s.

Ferrari 575M SuperAmerica-tp-0

Russian tuner TopCar, as you my know from our previous reports, now has a classic car division that buys, sells, and restores iconic vintage exotics. The latest addition to their collection is an absolutely stunning Ferrari 575M SuperAmerica, one of only 599 units produced.

Designed as the swan song for the lovely 550 Maranello series, Ferrari 575M SuperAmerica introduced a new type of roadster roof which is amazingly simple and effective. The car does not quality as a full drop-top, but it comes with a rotating carbon fiber roof which has a superbly quick operation and gives you access to plenty of fresh air and unlimited sky.

Another advantage of this roof arrangement for Ferrari 575M SuperAmerica is styling. Before this car Ferrari launched the 550 Barchetta with a fully foldable soft top. And it looked great, but not as good as the hardtop. With the SuperAmerica they struck a great balance between the two and arrived at a look that is not only easy on the eyes, it results in a classic design that will go down in history books as one of the all time greats.

Powered by a 540 horsepower V12 engine, Ferrari 575M SuperAmerica was one of the first models to get a F1-style automated manual gearbox with paddle shifters.

PostHeaderIcon Restored Porsche 911 Anniversary Models Hit the Auction Block

Porsche 911 Anniversary Models-0

If none of those unique Porsche 911 RS models we showed you before float your boat, Silverstone Auctions announced the addition to two special Porsche 911 Anniversary models to their October 25 sale. They are both restored and rebuilt by UK-based Porsche Centres.

The first offering from this Porsche 911 Anniversary duo is a 1981 Porsche 911 ‘930’ Turbo in Guards red and black, restored in six months by the Porsche Classic Restoration Centre in Leeds. The body on this car was stripped back to bare metal and painted in the original color, while the engine and brakes were rebuilt to the original specs. Many of the original parts have been retained, but a new turbocharger is fitted for optimal performance. This car will be sold with a guide price of £100,000 – £115,000.

The second and more interesting 911 up for grabs here is a 1977 Porsche 911 ‘Project 50’ based on ‘ultimate 911 RS’ by Porsche Central Operations in Reading. Not only was this car restored, it was also upgraded and made bespoke with the addition of a 993 engine, and 930 3.2-litre Carrera brakes. Finished in Viper Green paint, this special 911 is expected to fetch £125,000 – £150,000 which is roughly half of what it would have cost you to build one privately.

PostHeaderIcon World’s Only Ferrari F40 with Leather Seats Up for Grabs

ferrari-f40-connolly-1

H&H Classics is offering a very unique 1992 Ferrari F40 for sale at their forthcoming Duxford sale on October 14. This ‘Connolly’ F40 is apparently the only one in the world with its seats trimmed in tan aniline leather.

This car was ordered new by Francis John Connolly, the owner of the famous British firm who used to provide leather upholstery for the likes of Bentley and Aston Martin. But he didn’t like the standard Nomex-covered seats, so he decided to have the seats trimmed in Connolly leather, a decision supported by the factory. 

ferrari-f40-connolly-2

The Connolly Ferrari F40 also features a leather-covered fuse-box cover, on which is an embossed stamp of the Connolly crest. Because all these changes are approved by Ferrari, the car was granted Ferrari Classiche certification in 2007. Other highlights of this car is that it has adjustable suspension and only 18,800 miles on the clock.

H&H expects this Ferrari F40 to fetch £750,000 to £800,000. Other notable classic Ferraris to be offered at this auction include a 1960 250 GT SWB and a 1967 275 GTB/4.
