what makes this car special?

The 458 Speciale is one of the Special Series Ferrari’s for which Ferrari saves its engineering and performance magic at the end of production runs. These Special Series cars are always sought after by collectors, but even more so in this case as the 458 Speciale was the last naturally aspirated V8 Ferrari

 

At the heart of the Speciale is the 597 BHP 4.5l V8 which makes this model the most powerful non turbo V8 Ferrari and it is 90kg lighter than the 458 Italia on which it is based thanks to a carbon fibre floor, thinner glass for windscreen & side windows, Lexan engine cover, new lighter ceramic brakes, forged wheels and a minimalist interior

 

In addition, the Speciale has amazing agility thanks to new tech such as the SSC Side slip control which enables assisted side angle drifting and the active aerodynamics reduce drag as speeds increase

This model is at the pinnacle of what is possible in a road going Ferrari and provides next level involvement with extreme driving emotions

 

 

This Ferrari 458 Speciale is a 2015 registered example that has only covered 2100km from new. Desirable optional extras fitted are: :

  • Front suspension lift system
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Rear parking camera
  • AFS lighting system
  • Integrated audio system with Bluetooth
  • Racing livery in black
  • 20 inch forged rims in gold
  • Red brake callipers
  • Scuderia shields on fenders
  • Yellow rev counter

what makes this car special?

Founded by Argentine born Italian racing driver Alejandro DeTomaso, DeTomaso began building racing cars and prototypes with Frank Williams being one of their clients.

DeTomaso and Carrol Shelby had planned for this model to be the replacement for the AC Cobra. However, when Shelby became preoccupied with the Ford GT40 programme and no deal was signed, DeTomaso produced this car under his own name and named it the Mangusta (Italian for Mongoose). It was designed by Giorgetto Giugaro during his time at Ghia and features dramatic diagonal – opening engine covers

This car is not only one of ontly 401 units produced ……….but is one of the rare 120 European cars (the 10th example produced) with the 4.7l 289ci Ford V8. Later US Spec cars featured the 302ci V8 which only produced 221 BHP. In addition, only a few of these first cars featured the HiPo 289 (Shelby spec) engine which this car has.

Following a major restoration by the current owners in 2004, this car was dyno tuned with recorded power at 321 BHP.

A bonus for motorcycle racing fans is that it was imported to South Africa by World Motorcycle champion Jim Redman in 1970 and has only had two owners since then

what makes this car special?

The Ferrari 365 GTB4, unofficially known as the Daytona in recognition of Ferrari’s famous win at the 1967 Daytona 24-hour race, is one of the true high-performance front engine Ferrari V12 legends. A well-balanced chassis due to the rear transaxle layout, a daring modern design by Pinninfarina and an upgraded 4.4l V12 engine fed by six Weber twin choke carbs resulted in an impressive package capable of sustained high-speed travel up to the top speed of 280km/h.

There were an estimated 1406 examples produced with 160 Right Hand Drive Coupe’s and of those, only 40 were Plexi Glass cars, which are the most desirable and achieve the highest sales values.

This example was delivered new in the UK to Grand Prix team owner and Whiskey Heir, Rob Walker and comes with detailed documentation authenticating this and in addition has received Ferrari Classiche certification. In the late 1980’s, it was sold by Talacrest to Singapore following a major restoration. A South African enthusiast purchased the car in 2012 from the Alfred Tan collection in Singapore. On arrival in South Africa a bare metal restoration was commissioned at Carrozzeria (the official Ferrari repair center) under the knowledgeable supervision of Ivano Sega. The original Cromadora rims where replaced with the Borranni wire wheels. The originals do still come with the car. This is a rare opportunity to own a highly desirable and rare Plexi Glass Ferrari 365 GTB/4 in superb condition.

The design of the 328 remained similar to the 308 due to the huge success of the preceding model

Improvements over the 308 included:

  • Interior: more supportive seats & user-friendly switchgear
  • Evolution of the 90-degree V8 engine with capacity increased to 3.2l – more power and torque
  • Mid 1988 – ABS models introduced – revised suspension geometry and convex shaped wheels

This is a well-maintained ABS example with optional air conditioning. It has been in Crossley & Webb’s managed storage division for the past year with regular testing, minor issues attended to promptly and is now without doubt one of the most “on the button” Ferrari examples in South Africa.

what makes this car special?

The development of the Porsche 911 was fueled by its racing program and Porsche first experimented with Turbocharging on their 917 Can Am race cars. The purpose for introducing the 930 Turbo was to gain homologation for the 1976 sportscar racing season ensuring that the 930 Turbo became the first production car to fully utilize Turbo charging

 

Initially introduced with a capacity of 3.0l with a KKK Turbo producing 256 BHP, in 1978 the capacity was enlarged to 3,3l and an air to air intercooler was added increasing power to 300 BHP.

Prior to the launch of the Turbo, Porsche was known for handling and driving dynamics rather than raw power, but this changed with the Turbo. Since then the words Turbo and Porsche have become synonymous with performance

 

This is a 3.3l example produced in 1984 that has recently had a major high quality cosmetic and mechanical overhaul and comes with desirable factory extras such a electric sunroof and air conditioning

what makes this car special?

With a design inspired by the J Class racing yachts of the 1930’s one would think this car would drive like a land based yacht. However, this is a Rolls Royce which you will enjoy driving rather than being driven in.

 

Powered by the buttery smooth 6.75l V12, the Phantom Drophead Coupe handles with an agility and nimbleness that is surprising considering its size. Coach doors (otherwise known as suicide doors) allow the windscreen pillar to be an extension of the aluminium frame which results in the most rigid chassis of any contemporary convertible. The experience in the cabin is enhanced with full grain leather and natural wood veneers and the six layer soft top hood provides superb insulation.

 

This is a well maintained example that has only covered 36 300km over the past nine years. It is finished in English white, has a Mocassin interior, a veneered instrument panel, veneered steering wheel spokes, teak decking, the brushed steel package and a Navy blue hood

what makes this car special?

This model takes its name from Sergio Scaglietti, the designer and coachbuilder who built the bodies of many legendary Ferrari in the 1950’s and 60’s. The car’s scooped flanks were inspired by the Ferrari 375MM which was commissioned by Italian film director Roberto Rossellini for his wife Ingrid Bergman.

 

This is the second all aluminium Ferrari after the 360 Modena and is a true four seater with space in the rear for adults. Although this is a more practical Ferrari than most, the 5.7l V12 can propel the 4 occupants to 323km/h and the well-balanced chassis with rear mounted gearbox gives a confidence inspiring ride.

 

This example was delivered new in 2006 to a well-known Cape Town businessman who specced the car with Blue Pozzi paintwork and a Crema interior. This Ferrari has only covered 30 100km from new, has been well maintained, recently serviced, new clutch fitted by agents, new Michelin tyres fitted as well as a paint correction and interior rejuvenation completed by our preferred detailer Mike of Distinct Detail.

 

At R 1 550 000 this is a well sorted, low mileage V12 Ferrari representing great value for money

This stylish example designed by Pinninfarina with Poltrona Frau leather was fitted with the ZF 6 speed automatic gearbox which together with the 460 BHP V8 engine and Skyhook suspension system contribute to a comfortable but exciting driving experience.

It has recently been serviced by the agents and the Pirelli P zero tyres are virtually brand new

  • Introduced in 1959, the MK2 was an evolution of Jaguar’s MK1 and featured the following updates:
    • Larger front and rear screens with larger side windows too
    • Wider track
    • Four wheel disc brakes were now standard on the MK2
  • The engine was very similar to the 3.8l E type – same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons but different inlet manifold and carburation (two Su’s vs. three)
  • The Jaguar Mark 2 (especially the 3.8l version) was a very fast car for its time which was noted by bank robbers and was the getaway car of choice until the police ordered their own. It also had a successful competition history
  • This is a South African built example of high quality with the desirable 3.8l straight six engine and the 4 speed manual gearbox with overdrive

Introduced at the Geneva show in 1980, the 500sl was the flagship Mercedes Benz convertible of its time and the fastest car in their entire range. However, it was user friendly and temperament free and therefore was a huge success for Mercedes Benz. Improvements over the 450sl included:

 

  • An all alloy overhead camshaft 5l V8 producing 235 BHP
  • More powerful with better fuel consumption
  • Shorter wheelbase
  • Front and rear spoilers added
  • Improvements to the independent suspension
  • Improved brakes

 

This example was registered in South Africa in 1982 and spent the bulk of its life in the Johannesburg area. It is a solid example but during our technical inspection a few items were identified that require attention. The asking price has been adjusted accordingly and a copy of he technical report is available for inspection
