HISTORY FILE
Supplied new in October 1996 this very high spec LHD Turbo has been very well maintained.

The 993 Turbo coupé was introduced in 1995. It featured a new twin turbocharged  engine displacing 3.6 liters and generating a maximum power output of 408 PS (300 kW; 402 hp). Air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals completed the new engine. The 993 Turbo was the first 911 Turbo with all wheels drive, taken from the 959 flagship model. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to its predecessors. In connection with two catalytic converters and an on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, the 993 Turbo was the cleanest sports car of its time. The Turbo’s bodywork differs from the Carrera by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper moldings, and a fixed “whale tail” rear wing housing the intercoolers. New 18 in (460 mm) alloy wheels with hollow spokes were standard.

The factory X50 pack increased the performance of the engine to 450bhp.

The 993 Turbo was one of the first production cars in the world to have OBDII disagnostics system. (the 3.8-litre and GT versions didn’t have that system, and the normally aspirated 993 variants didn’t get it until 1996 model year). The successors of the 993 Turbo since have had water-cooled heads. The car also had brakes that were larger than those on the base Carrera model.

2004 FERRARI ENZO BLACK

2004 FERRARI ENZO

FERRARI ENZO – First registered in March 2004 and only two owners from new. Nero black metallic with black leather interior piped in red. Full service history with two owners and only 12,912kms from new. EU car with taxes paid.

The Enzo Ferrari (also unofficially referred to as the Ferrari Enzo) is a a 12 cylinder mid enngine sports car named after the company’s founder, Enzo Ferrari It was built in 2002 using  Formula 1 technology, such as a carbon fibre body, F1-style electro hydraulic gear shift transmission, and  carbon fibre reinforced silica carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite disc brakes. Also used are technologies not allowed in F1 such as active aerodynamics and traction control. The Enzo Ferrari generates incredibly high amounts of  downforce which is achieved by the front underbody flaps, the small adjustable rear spoiler and the rear diffuser working in conjunction, 3363  newtons (756 pounds force) is generated at 124 mph (200 km/h) 7602 Newtons (1709 pounds force) is attained at 186 mph (299 km/h) before decreasing to 5738 Newtons (1290 pounds force) at top speed.

The Enzo’s F140B V12 engine was the first of a new generation for Ferrari. It is based on the design of the V8 engine found in the Maserati Quattroporte, using the same basic design and 104 mm (4.1 in) bore spacing. This design replaced the former architectures seen in V12 and V8 engines used in most other contemporary Ferraris. The 2005 F430 is the second Ferrari to get a version of this new powerplant. Ferrari developed the Ferrari FXX Corse Cliente from this car.

McLAREN P15 SENNA

McLAREN P15 SENNA

 

New McLaren P15 Senna. Specification yet to be confirmed, so you can choose your options preference – colour / interior / MSO etc.. Early delivery car UK or Euro.

The McLaren P15 Senna is a limited-production mid engine supercar sportscar manufactured by McLaren Automotive,. The car is the latest addition to the McLaren Ultimate Series, joining the F1 and the P1; however, it is not a direct successor to either of those cars. It was revealed to the world online by the company on December 10, 2017, with the official debut taking place at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Production will be limited to 500 units, with each car hand-built at the McLaren production centre in Woking. The car pays tribute to the late F1 driver Ayrton Senna and his accomplishments with the company’s Formula One Team, ( back in the days when F1 had some characters and they actually raced each other : )

Specifications

McLaren’s main focus, while designing the Senna was to achieve faster lap times. In order to do so, McLaren developed a lightweight design that incorporated many aerodynamic elements.

The McLaren P15 Senna is largely based on the McLaren 720S, using a  modified version of its carbon fibre monocoque and twin-turbocharged engine. The Senna is powered by an uprated version of the 720S’ 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 dubbed the M840TR. It uses a seven-speed  dual clutch transmission that delivers all 800 PS (588 kW; 789 hp) and 590 lb⋅ft (800 N⋅m) to the rear wheels. Unlike the previous offering in the Ultimate Series, the P1, the Senna does not use an electric motor in favour of its low dry weight of 1,198 kg (2,641 lb), which allows for a power to weight ratio of 658 hp (491 kW; 667 PS) per ton. Seriously powerful.

Carbon fibre aerodynamic pieces constitute the car, with a large double-element rear wing, double-element diffuser, F1 -inspired roof scoop, front and side air intakes, rear air louvres, and large front fenders. Inside a panel beside the intakes is a small set of mini-canards. Areas of low pressure are accompanied using high-performance radiators. The car uses dihedral doors, like the other previous models in the Ultimate Series, and also has optional windows applied on the lower area of its doors.

The Senna uses a brand-new generation of Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, containing a new compound that has three and a half times better thermal conductivity than before, making the brakes smaller and lighter. It also features a new set of central-locking alloy wheels designed for Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R tires. Its central design is a new generation of McLaren’s monocoque named MonoCage III, which contributes to the car’s dry weight.The interior largely comprised of exposed carbon fibre, with seats that can be upholstered in alcantara or leather, depending on the customer’s preference. Behind the two seats is room large enough for two helmets and race suits, noting the car’s minimalist and track focused design. The car utilises McLaren’s hydraulic RaceActive Chassis Control II (RCC II) suspension along with double-wishbone control arms.

Performance statistics

In February 2018, McLaren released the full performance statistics of the track-oriented McLaren P15 Senna model:

  • 0–62 mph (0–100 km/h): 2.2 seconds.
  • 0–124 mph (0–200 km/h): 6.8 seconds.
  • 0–186 mph (0–299 km/h): 17.5 seconds.
  • Standing quarter-mile: 9.9 seconds.
  • Power-to-weight ratio: 659 hp/tonne.
  • Top speed: 211 mph (340 km/h) (redline limited).

Production

Every car will be hand-built at the McLaren facility in Woking, UK. with a production run of just 500 units, all of which are already sold. The McLaren Senna is listed at the price of £750,000 ($837,000) with the final car auctioned at a price of £1,916,793 ($2,670,000). Deliveries are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2018.

1995 DUCATI 900SS SUPERSPORT

1995 DUCATI 900SS SUPERSPORT

DUCATI 900SS Supersport first registered in October 1995, Racing red with bronze frame and 3 spoke alloy wheels, later 3 clock dash – speedo, tacho and temp, original UK bike with 20,000 miles from new. Last of the real Ducati family line. Recent cam belt service and 12 months MOT. Original Ducati Warranty and Maintenance book, Owner’s manual and tool kit along with original passenger seat hump. All MOTs from 3 years old, many invoices supporting the service history. Four owners from new. Start it up to make you smile.

The 1991 Ducati 900SS Supersports were produced with white chrome molybdenum steel frames and white wheels. The swingarms used needle bearings instead of bushings as in the past. Brakes from the Ducati 851 were used on the Supersport vastly improving braking performance. All new bodywork and a pivoting fuel tank were elegantly shaped. The revised Supersports were met with immediate success and became wildly popular. Even though the 1991 Supersport was extremely well developed, Ducati would continue to refine the bike over the years.

From 1991 to 1998, the model was called 900SS, and was available with a full (SS) or half fairing (SS/CR). 1992 saw the addition to the SS/SL (Superlight). In 1994, to further differentiate the 900 from smaller Supersports additional models were released in addition to the Superlight. The 900 SS/SP (Sport Production) was offered to the North American market only. This model had carbon fiber fenders and clutch cover, sound damping material, adjustable Showa suspension, and an aluminum swingarm. The Superlight had the same options as the SS SP but with a single seat and upswept mufflers. The CR’s came with a non adjustable suspension, a steel swingarm, and a narrower 4.5-inch rear wheel and 160 section rear tire. Many riders feel the aluminum swingarms are more desirable.

In 1997, as Supersport sales were declining due to the popularity of the Ducati Monster and Ducati Superbike lines, Ducati attempted to keep the model alive with a few final changes. Yellow was added as a color option, an additional air intake was added as well as new, bolder graphics; namely the “Ducati” emblazoned across the entire side of the Supersport body panel.

In 1998, only 200 red and 200 yellow SS/CR’s were imported to the United States. They featured the last of the Cagiva graphics and elephant but had 1998 spec. motors with new pistons, cylinders and lower mounted oil cooler. A final series Supersport the SS/FE (Final Edition) was also available in 98, but featured the new Pacific graphics, came only in silver with black wheels, had the single seat and upswept exhausts of the Superlight and represented the last carburated Supersport.

The value of a good Ducati 900SS Supersport have been steadily growing in recent years. This is mainly because the bikes are very good – they handle well, have plenty enough performance and character, but moreover, they are a Ducati and Ducati have the same draw in the motorcycle world as Ferrari in the sports car world. If you have a Ducati in your garage, it has a lot of credibility and it’s a bike you will enjoy owning. Now that the best original mid 70’s Ducati 900 Supersports are being sold for £80,000, these 1990s Ducati Supersports appear to be remarkable value for money. My advice : Buy one now, because in a few year’s time, they won’t be this price.

DUCATI 900SS DESMO SUPER SPORT 1978

DUCATI 900SS DESMO SUPER SPORT

One of the true greats in motorcycle history.

1978 DUCATI 900SS DESMO SUPER SPORT – 6,500 miles from new with amazingly, only one owner, silver metallic with blue decals and wire spoked  wheels. Truly outstanding condition and benefiting from a recent service and detail. They really don’t come any better than this.  These machines are the pinnacle of Ducati history and as such are highly collectible. The 1978 model is generally considered by those in the know, to be the bike to have in a collection AND YOU CAN’T STOP SMILING WHEN YOU START IT..

1975–1981 Square Case Super Sport

In 1975, two versions of the Super Sport were made available based on the 864 cc “square-case” 90-degree twin cylinder motor; the full 864 cc version known as the 900 and a sleeved down 750. 250 examples of each were produced but the 750 and 900 are virtually identical. The 1975 Super Sport continued to use the right-side gear shift, contradicting the 1974 U.S. regulation that all bikes must have the gear shifting on the left side of the engine. Despite this, a handful of right side Super Sports have made it into the United States.

Most of the subsequent changes made to the Super Sport model were to comply with global legislation. Quieter mufflers, relocated gear lever and rear brake and new foot pegs. The biggest improvement was the redesign of the kick-starter. On the 1975 model the kick starter could rotate around and shift the transmission into first gear. If the bike was not on the center-stand the rider could potentially have a very unpleasant surprise.

Because the price of the 750 Super Sport was very similar to the 900, BUT very few 750s were produced with the majority of them being shipped to Australia, Germany or staying in Italy for racing applications.

By 1978 the bikes looked identical, but several significant improvements had made their way into the motor, making them more reliable and solving problems with engine crankshafts breaking. The electronics also improved as well as some minor timing tweaks making the bike run more efficiently. Most notable was a majorly redesigned gear lever that made the bike a lot easier for owners to live with and ride. Most 1978 900 Super Sports also came with a dual seat and lockable tool box. The solo seat was available as an option. The 1978 Ducati 900SS model year bike is considered to be the finest iteration of the bevel drive square case Super Sports. The 1978 900 and 1979 750s were the last to retain close links with the Imola racers and the last to come with traditional spoked wheels. It was also in 1978 that the Isle of Man TT Formula 1 race was won by a 900 Super Sport, ridden by former World Champion Mike Hailwood in a popular comeback race.

In 1979 the Super Sports were painted black with gold accents to appeal to the British market. Cast Campagnolo alloy wheels replaced the Borrani alloy rims and a Mike Hailwood Replica was made available in very limited numbers painted in lavish green and red colour schemes. The new changes, specifically the black and gold paint and cast wheels were very successful at making an ageing design look more modern. The 1980 model stayed essentially the same with no notable changes. Essentially, the Super Sport was being transitioned into the Mike Hailwood Replica.

ASTON MARTIN LAGONDA TARAF NEW DELIVERY MILES

ASTON MARTIN LAGONDA TARAF

 

LUXURY SPORTS SALOON

ASTON MARTIN LAGONDA TARAF. New, delivery  miles, in stock. Full Aston Martin warranty. Opulence specification includes Ceramic grey metallic paintwork, Piano black pack including door handles, Vertex special order quilt leather, iPad rear seat infotainment, refridgerator and Bang & Olufsen BeoSound ultimate package. VAT qualifying. Lease or purchase. Ideal for UK sale or export overseas. Rare low volume, exclusive, hand made, luxury sporting saloon.

The Lagonda brand was founded in 1906 by Wilbur Gunn. Lagonda won the famous  Le Mans 24h race with a Lagonda M45R driven by John Stuart and Luis Fontez. The Lagonda Rapide V-12 1939 was the most expensive car in the United States at the time of its launch. The company however filed for bankruptcy soon after, and was bought by Alan Good, who outbid Rolls Royce for the company. In 1947 Lagonda was bought by David Brown, who had also bought Aston Martin. The brand came back in 1976 with the William Towns designed angular Aston Martin Lagonda, which was released as an Aston Martin car. However the model was discontinued in early 1990, effectively ending the brand name at the same time.

Aston Martin decided to revive the Lagonda brand in 2009, to expand outside its traditional sporting realm into untapped segments such as luxury saloons and celebrate Lagonda’s centennial anniversary. “The ASTON MARTIN Lagonda brand would allow us to develop cars which can have a different character than a sports car,” said CEO Ulrich Bez in a statement. “Lagonda will have its own niche with luxurious and truly versatile products suitable for both existing and emerging markets”.

The Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf project was undertaken by Aston Martin’s Q division which specialises in commissioning bespoke cars and customising existing models to  specifications. The final full-size model was completed in 8 months of the first studio sketches in January 2014. Marek Reichman attributed the swift execution to lessons learnt from the production of the Aston Martin One – 77, which took two years.

The TARAF is intended as a homage to the Aston Martin Lagonda, which was produced between 1976 and 1990. A total of 645 of those cars were produced, each of which took 2200 man hours to build.

Specifications

The Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf is powered by a 48-valve, 6-litre V12 producing 540HP and 465 lb-ft of torque. It has a maximum limited speed of 195 miles per hour (314 km/h).

Production

Top Gear reported that the Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf was undergoing hot weather testing in Oman in September 2014. The car was put through 14,000 miles (23,000 km) of testing in four weeks in temperatures ranging between 30–50 C. The car was subsequently unveiled in the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

The car began production in 2016, with the company saying that only 200 cars will be made. The Taraf is produced in Aston Martin’s plant in Gaydon, Warwickshire. When Andy Palmer took over as the CEO, he had the car’s potential markets widened to include Europe, USA, Singapore and South Africa. He also had the number of cars to be produced increased to 200.  The car is the most expensive four-door saloon in the world as of April 2017.

The body panels are made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), which then receives a seven-layer paint job besides polishing and elbow grease. The car made a run at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The production will end by December 2018, with 150 cars expected to have been sold by then.

ASTON MARTIN VANTAGE V8 4.7 SPORTSHIFT – SOLD

ASTON MARTIN VANTAGE V8 4.7 SPORTSHIFT

Aston Martin Vantage V8 Sportshift SS first registered in 2008 and only covered 18,850 miles by one owner from new. Full Aston Martin service history – new tyres. Full finance facilities available.

We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning Aston Martin Vantage V8 SS. Finished in Meteorite Silver with Obsidian Black Upholstery with silver stitching. This beautiful Vantage has the following special optional extras: Brake Calipers – Silver, Fascia Trim – Gun Metal Fascia, Front Grille – Bright Finish Grille, Front Parking Sensors, HID Headlamps – Wash And self levelling, Aston Martin Premium Audio, Garage Door Opener + Auto Dim Mirror, Memory Seats And Mirrors, Power-folding Mirror Assembly, Satellite Navigation, Heated Front Seats, Seatbelts – Warm Charcoal, Sports Pack – Sports Pack With 5 Spoke alloy Wheels.

SPECIFICATION

In May 2008, Aston Martin announced many new technological updates for the Vantage, which included many changes to the engine, transmission, suspension and appearance. New cylinder liners that were now pressed into the aluminium block instead of the original cast-in variants allow a thinner liner, which in turn allows a larger capacity of 4.7 L. The cylinder bore and stroke has been increased from 89 mm (3.5 in) to 91 mm (3.6 in) and 86 mm (3.4 in) to 91 mm (3.6 in) respectively, giving a total displacement of 4735 cc. The dry sump lubrication system was also performance modified.

SPORTSHIFT

The “Sportshift” semi automatic transmission benefited from an intelligent software update, while a lightened flywheel was introduced for both the manual and the Sportshift. Aston Martin also stiffened the suspension and now uses uprated Bilstein dampers. An optional sports pack is being offered with stiffer springs, tighter handling, and all-new 5-spoke alloy wheels. Sportshift-equipped models also receive a new electronic dual throttle mapping update which allows the driver to choose from the default sport mode, or comfort mode, which gives more comfortable gear shifts and throttle input for much improved driveability.

UPDATES

New wheels are also part of the Aston Martin Vantage V8 update including a 20-spoke alloy wheel and a new 5-spoke aluminium wheel for the highly desirable sport pack. The interior has been changed slightly, using an updated console similar to the Aston Martin DBS and the DB9.

The update provides the Vantage with 420 bhp (310 kW) (an 11% increase) and delivers peak torque of 470 N⋅m (350 lb⋅ft) (a 15% increase), providing the car with additional reserves of mid-range performance and an improved top speed. Combined European fuel economy and CO2 emissions are also improved by 13% on the Sportshift, so faster, more economical, more comfortable to drive but still remains the British gentleman’s express with enviable style and subtlety. Added to the above is a much better gear change up and down the gearbox.
