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 and this model is the most desirable and achieves 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.

0 – 100km/h = 5.4 seconds

The Ferrari 488 GTB is the successor to the 458 Italia, therefore improving on performance, styling and overall vehicle dynamics. The 488 GTB was designed by Ferrari’s in house styling centre in Maranello, Flavio Manzoni.

The 488 is 50% more aerodynamic as a result of the newly designed double front splitter and blown rear spoiler that is integrated into the rear deck lid. The car is powered by a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, generating a higher power output than the 458 at 661 BHP.

 

The result is a 0-100 km/h time of 3.0 seconds and a 330km/h top speed.

Assisting the power delivery is a fast dual clutch 7 speed gearbox which is designed to provide a great amount of acceleration.

 

The GTB moniker stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta and was first used in 1964 with the 275 GTB, describing it as a grand tourer sports coupe. As a result, the Ferrari 488 GTB is not only to be considered as a high-performance supercar, but is also a comfortable and user-friendly car that is a pleasure to drive and enjoy.

 

This is a one owner 2018 registered example that has only covered 1850 km from new. It is well specced in a desirable colour (Grigio Silverstone) with Black Poltorna Frau leather and optional extras include:

  • Suspension lift system
  • Adaptive front lighting system
  • Front and rear parking sensors plus camera
  • Premium Hifi system
  • Electric seats with Cavallino stitched on headrest in charcoal

Ferrari have always been known to make the fastest supercars and grand tourers on the planet. Their heritage alone speaks for itself, especially their history in Formula 1. However, Ferrari have decided to take a different approach when designing the FF.

 

The Ferrari FF was introduced in 2011 at the Geneva motorshow as a successor to the 612 Scaglietti in Ferrari’s GT class of vehicles.

 

Designed by the former design director of Pininfarina, Lowie Vermeersch and Flavio Manzoni at the Ferrari Styling Centre, the FF’s purpose was to be a practical four-seater grand tourer that you could use as a daily driver but would also be enjoyed as a proper Ferrari performance car. The introduction to their line of “shooting-brake” designed GT cars was something that hasn’t really been seen on a Ferrari. The benefits of the design is the accessibility to the trunk as well as the amount of storage space it contains. It also means that passengers in the back seats will be a bit more comfortable as the rear section of the FF doesn’t compromise head room.

 

 

This is also Ferrari’s first all-wheel drive system fitted to their road cars, which is rather ideal if you will be traveling in weather conditions that you won’t usually find a Ferrari in.

 

The FF features the following performance features:

 

  • 4RM all-wheel drive system
  • 5L naturally aspirated V12 producing 651 BHP
  • 7 speed dual clutch F1 transmission with a paddle shift system which shares similar characteristics to the California, 458 Italia and the F12berlinetta

 

The combination of these features will get the Ferrari FF from zero to 100km/h in a rapid 3.5 seconds and will get to its 340km/h top speed. Along with these performance features, the FF also has a decent carbon ceramic braking system which enhances stopping power and increases longevity compared to a regular braking system.

The DB11 is Aston Martin’s replacement to the successful DB9. It was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016 with production starting in September later that year. In addition to the DB9 it replaces, the DB11 is designed to be a modern, comfortable and powerful grand tourer with the appearance to match.

 

The Aston Martin DB11’s design features make it distinguishable from any other performance grand tourer. The clam shell hood and the “Aeroblade” intakes situated in the front strakes are a few of the key distinct features that make the DB11 unique. For instance it received positive reviews and feedback from several auto journalists and won the coveted Golden Steering Wheel Award for the most beautiful car of 2017.

 

A 5.2L twin turbocharged 600 BHP V12 powers the DB11 Launch Edition. Therefore it can reach 100 km/h from a standing start in just 3.9 seconds. Furthermore, it will also reach its 320 km/h top speed in excellent comfort and luxury.

 

It has a selection of three driving modes for every occasion (GT, Sport and Sport Plus), most importantly providing different degrees of performance and comfort depending on your preferences given at the time. Therefore Sport Plus being the mode to provide the optimal performance level, settings such as the chassis, adaptable suspension, steering and exhaust are adjusted to give the best possible driving experience. The rear-mounted, 8 speed ZF automatic transmission is also sharpened to give fast and effortless gear changes.

 

This 2017 example of the Aston Martin DB11 Launch Edition has only covered 5700 km and is finished in the Lunar White exterior paint scheme with the black exterior bodypack which includes a black roof panel and strake. The interior is finished in the contemporary Obsidian black option with silver stitching and Celestial perforation

 

Optional extras added to this Aston Martin DB11:

  • Bang & Olufsen Beosound Audio system
  • Facia trim finished in Satin chopped carbon
  • Heavy pile floor mats with leather binding
  • Embossed wings on headrest
  • Power seat bolsters
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Auto park assist
  • Dark anodised brake calipers
  • The 10 spoke direction rim in gloss black/diamond cut finish

The Ultimate Edition of Aston Martin DBS model is the final sendoff to the DB9 lineup, limiting the production of this special edition to 100 units, this model being number 17.

Distinguishing the Ultimate Edition to a normal DBS would be difficult from a distance as the differences are in the small and finer details of the body. As a result, changes are mostly cosmetic which include:

 

  • Black front grille, bonnet and side strake meshes
  • Carbon fibre wing mirror caps
  • Zircotec black coated exhaust tailpipe finishes
  • Smoked rear tail lamps
  • Black lamp surrounds plus carbon fibre rear lamp fills
  • Gloss black diamond turned wheels
  • DBS badge featuring a red “S”
  • Quilted Obsidian black interior and Diamond quilt Alcantara headlining
  • Carbon fibre upper facia and piano black centre console
  • Paddle tips trimmed in spicy leather
  • DBS seat embroidery with red “S”
  • Black anodised Bang & Olufsen speaker grilles
  • Unique sill plaque featuring the individual build number

 

The wheels are painted in a special diamond black colour scheme along with red brake calipers fitted in this example. It also has special DBS badging and unique sill plaques featuring the individual build number.

 

Under the bonnet lies Aston Martin’s 6.0L naturally aspirated V12 engine which makes 510 BHP and is connected to a 6 speed ZF automatic transmission with paddle shifters located on both sides of the steering wheel for quick and effortless shifting. As a result, it propels the DBS Ultimate to 100km/h from a standstill in 4.3 seconds and will hit a top speed of 305km/h.

 

This example was produced in 2012 and was first delivered in the UK before coming to South Africa. Since then, it has only covered 13010 miles from new and is in immaculate condition.

Argentinian born Alejandro DeTomaso founded the DeTomaso car company in Modena Italy in 1958. The company built race cars and prototypes but later produced road going sports cars. The four cylinder Vallelunga was their first road going sports car but the arrival of the Mangusta in 1967 established De Tomaso as a serious automobile manufacturer.

DeTomaso produced 401 examples over a period of four years, of which 250 are thought to have survived. The name “Mangusta” (Mongoose) was supposedly a dig at his friend & rival Carol Shelby, the creator of the AC Cobra. One of the few animals quick enough to take on the hooded snake in nature is the Mongoose.

Giorgetto Giugaro designed the DeTomaso Mangusta’s 41 inch high body during his time at Carrozzeria Ghia with his signature design feature being the dramatic diagonal – opening engine covers

This DeTomaso Mangusta is not only one of only 401 units produced but is one of the rare 120 European cars (the 10th example produced) with the 289 cubic  inch Ford V8. Later US Spec cars featured the 302 cubic inch 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.

This car was dyno tuned with recorded power at 321 BHP following it’s restoration in 2004

World Motorcycle champion Jim Redman imported this example to South Africa in 1970 and it has only had two owners since then and the current owner bought it in 1980

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. Based on the 100EX concept that was unveiled at the Geneva motorshow in 2004, the Phantom Drophead Coupe is 9 inches shorter than the Phantom sedan and rides on 21 inch wheels as standard with the Rolls Royce badge that stays static while it is in motion.

 

Powered by the buttery smooth 6.75l V12 under the elegant brushed stainless-steel bonnet, the Phantom Drophead Coupe handles with an agility and nimbleness that is surprising considering its size, propelling it to 100 in just 5.7 seconds. 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 Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead even comes with it’s own Umbrella cleverly mounted inside the driver’s door when needed for those rainy days.

 

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. The epitome of pure luxury and class for absolute great value.

The 328 GTS is one of Ferrari’s well known mid to late 80’s mid-engine sports cars that has evolved from the 308 GTS/GTB and was also one of Ferrari’s commercial successes, producing over 6000 units in the GTS variant from 1985 to 1989. Even though the Ferrari 328 GTS is based on its predecessor, there were some improvements done to the body and engine to make it one of the most reliable and functional Ferraris of its time.

 

The 3.2 liter naturally aspirated, 90 degree V8 engine is an evolved powerplant from the Ferrari Dino that was developed until the early 2000s and is coupled to a 5 speed manual gearbox. It produces 270 BHP and can achieve a 0-100km/h time of 5.9 seconds. It will also reach a top speed of 262km/h, a truly capable speed for a car of that era. With a curb weight figure of just 1.263kg, it is also considered to be a light and agile performance car.

 

Improvements and revisions were made in 1988 when the 328 was fitted with an anti-lock brake system (ABS), upgraded suspension geometry to improve overall handling characteristics as well as redesigned convex shaped wheels.

 

The interior featured more easier to use switchgear compared to the 308, which made the 328 a convenient car to use while in transit. The seating was also very supportive to hold both driver and passenger in place comfortably while cornering.

 

This example was produced and released in 1989, therefore being one of the revised ABS models and has been well taken care of by Crossley & Webb’s storage division for the past year with regular maintenance and testing done to ensure its decent condition.

The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is a high performance Grand Tourer that was made between 2004 and 2010 in which Ferrari marketed as their flagship model.

 

This model is named after Sergio Scaglietti, the legendary coach builder based in Modena. His company, Carrozzeria Scaglietti, has since been taken over by Ferrari. As a result, all of the aluminium bodies are now produced there.

 

Automobile designer Ken Okuyama at Pininfarina designed the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and was also involved in the design projects of the first generation Honda NSX, Ferrari 599 GTB and the Enzo.

 

The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti’s scooped flanks were inspired by the Ferrari 375 MM and was commissioned by Italian film director Roberto Rossellini for his wife Ingrid Bergman. The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is lighter and more agile than the models it replaces because it is the second all aluminium Ferrari after the 360 Modena.

 

Even though this model is more practical than most Ferraris, it’s naturally aspirated V12 engine can propel four occupants to 323 km/h. In addition, the well-balanced chassis with rear mounted gearbox gives a confidence inspiring ride and overall promising performance.

 

This example was delivered new in 2006 to a well-known Cape Town businessman who ordered the car to his specification with Blue Pozzi paintwork and a Crema interior. This example has only covered 30 100 km from new and it has also been well maintained and recently serviced.

 

The following has been serviced and attended to:

  • The clutch was replaced by the agents,
  • New Michelin tires fitted
  • Paint correction and interior rejuvenation completed by our preferred detailing specialist, Mike of Distinct Detail.

 

At R 1 550 000 this is an impressive, well sorted, low mileage four seater Ferrari representing great value for money.

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 which increased power to 300 BHP. These performance improvements will get the 930 Turbo to 100km/h from a standstill in 5.4 seconds and will reach a top speed of just over 250km/h. The brake system was inherited from the Porsche 917 to assist in the best possible stopping time from high speeds.

 

The 930 Turbo’s unique exterior design is iconic and distinct from the rest of the 911 series. The rear arches have been stretched to accommodate the wide, deep dish wheels and tyres for added grip and the “whale tail” rear spoiler for added downforce and cooling, therefore increasing optimal performance.

 

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 Porsche 930 Turbo 3.3l  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 the Maserati Granturismo Sport special?

The Maserati GranTurismo Sport was introduced at the 2012 Geneva Motor show and is the facelift of the successful GranTurismo S introduced in 2008.

 

It featured the following improvements:

 

  • Power increased to 460 BHP from 440
  • Redesigned front bumper that optimised airflow to the engine and front brakes
  • New headlights with LED technology
  • Redesigned seats and steering wheel (better comfort and support)
  • A choice of either the ZF 6 speed automatic or 6 speed electro actuated gearbox
  • Skyhook suspension system standard with Sport and Normal variable modes

The GranTurismo Sport’s acceleration figures have improved due to the power increase, giving it a 4.7 second 0-100km/h time and will reach a top speed of 300km/h.

 

This is a well-maintained and low mileage 2013 example of the Maserati GranTurismo Sport which we regard as one of the finest full four-seater V8 GT cars. This stylish example designed by Pininfarina 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. The 4.7 litre Ferrari built V8 engine is one of the best sounding engines in the automotive world and this sound can be amplified at the touch of the sport button which also activate a sportier suspension setting to optimize handling characteristics and improve the overall driving experience.

 

This 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport has recently been serviced by the agents and the Pirelli P zero tyres are virtually brand new to provide the best amount of grip possible. A truly wonderful example of one of the best grand tourers available.

Numbered limited edition cars are always sought after in the collector car world and it is rare to find them under the R 1 million level.  However, this is an opportunity to secure one such car.

 

Maserati celebrated its 90th Anniversary in 2004 by producing 181 Anniversary Spyders in which 90 were made for the European market. However, only one was delivered to South Africa (number 41) and this is 1 of only 15 right hand drive examples in total. Therefore, making this an extremely rare and great collector’s car.

 

The 90th Anniversary cars were distinguished by the following features:

  • Anniversary blue livery/paint scheme
  • Carbon fibre tonneau cover which rises up behind the headrests
  • Silver headlight cluster
  • Ball polished 19 inch rims
  • Chrome door handles
  • Titanium coloured brake calipers
  • Oval fender logos in tribute to the 1957 F1 Championship winning Maserati 250F driven by Fangio which sported similar badges.

 

Ferrari provided the 4.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 in the Maserati Spyder and produces 395 BHP. It will get to 100km/h from a standstill in 5 seconds and will reach a top speed of 283km/h. The engine is mated to a 6 speed F1 Cambiocorsa (Italian for “race change”) , semi automatic transmission that has paddle shifters located on either side of the steering wheel to provide quick and instantaneous gear changes.

 

A Johannesburg enthusiast took delivery of this 90th Anniversary Maserati Spyder in 2005 and has only covered 33 800km since. This is a rare opportunity to secure a limited edition, numbered Maserati which celebrates the brands rich history and heritage.

The origins of the iconic Chevrolet Corvette started out in 1953 with the introduction of the C1 that was first revealed as a showcar at the 1953 Motorama car show. It was named after a small American warship that was known for being highly maneuverable and was made Chevrolet’s halo car to take on the likes of other international sports cars. The next generation Corvette, dubbed the “Stingray”, featured major design changes but remained a long bonnet, front engine, rear wheel drive sports car.

 

 

The introduction to the third generation Corvette was unveiled in 1968. Bill Mitchell and Larry Shinoda were responsible for the design of the concept prior to the production model. Changes from the previous generation included the following:

 

  • Exterior design changes based on the “Mako Shark II” concept car.
  • Similar engine and drivetrain layout from the second generation model
  • New interior design
  • Introduction to the T-top roof design which enabled owners to remove two sections of the roof for a unique open top experience.

 

The C3 was also the first Corvette to be featured and used as a pace car for the Indy 500.

 

In 1978 Corvette was celebrating its 25th Anniversary and also supplied the pace car for the Indy 500. Therefore, to commemorate the anniversary, Chevrolet introduced the following to give the Corvette a fresh new look:

 

  • Curved rear window, dubbed the “fastback” rear window
  • Newer interior
  • New dashboard

 

This Corvette C3 is a 25th Anniversary model from 1978 with the following specifications:

 

  • Power steering
  • Air-conditioning
  • A turbo 350 automatic gearbox
  • Upgraded brakes
  • Upgraded American racing torque thrust wheels

What makes this car special?

The Jaguar MK2 3.8L was a very well known and fast saloon back in 1959 when it was first introduced and had a production run until 1967. Evolved from the Mark 1, it featured updates and improvements such as larger front and rear screens with larger side windows, wider track and disc brakes on all fours wheels as standard on all Mark 2s. It came with different engine options which starts with a 2.4 litre engine and ends with a high end 3.8 litre inline 6 cylinder engine.

During it’s production run, it was known to be an incredibly great all-round package of performance and practicality, so much that it was the preferred choice for bank robbers to use as getaway vehicles. The law enforcement eventually had to upgrade their pursuit vehicles to the Jaguar Mark 2 just to apprehend them.

The engine itself is a similar layout to the 3.8 litre engine found in the Jaguar E-Type. Similarities include the same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons. A different inlet manifold and two SU carburetors were used in the Mark 2 compared to the E-Type which had three.

It also had a successful competition history, winning a combination of touring car championships and endurance races in Europe and Australia such as the 1962 Australian Touring Car Championship and the 1963 Brands Hatch 6 Hour endurance race.

This high quality example was made in 1964 and is equipped with the high end 3.8 litre straight six engine and a four speed manual gearbox with overdrive. Power output produced is 220 BHP and will reach 100km/h from a standing start in 8.5 seconds and will go on to achieve a 201km/h top speed.

The E24 was the first generation of BMW’s 6 series grand tourer coupe line that was produced from 1976 and ended production in 1989, making it BMW’s longest lasting series model lineup.

The BMW M635 CSI was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1983 and is the first official BMW M6 model. It was designed as a two door, four-seater coupe that you could use as a practical sports coupe.

It had a very successful racing history with victories in the 1984 and 1985 Nurburgring 24-hour endurance races as well as picking up titles in the Japanese and Australian touring car championships in race spec versions of the E24 6 series.

The iconic “Sharknose” design was penned by Paul Bracq, a French automobile designer who was also involved in the design of the Mercedes Benz W115 and the W113 SL series.

 

Upgrades over the standard BMW 635 include:

  • M88/3 3.5 liter straight 6 engine first used in the BMW M1 Supercar
  • reinforced the 5 speed transmission
  • revised chassis
  • limited slip differential
  • reinforced stabilizers
  • tighter shock absorbers
  • more powerful brake system
  • The battery was also moved to the rear end of the car to improve traction as well as weight distribution.

 

 

This is a low mileage South African delivered example in well preserved condition. Only four official South African market examples are believed to have been delivered and this car was purchased in Cape Town in 1985

Original books are present together with good service records

Launched at the Paris Motor Show in 1955, the Citroen DS shook the world with its aerodynamic design and innovative technology. It was known as one of the most popular French cars. Taking in 80000 deposits in 10 days from the official unveiling.  The Citroen DS is a symbol of French ingenuity and was developed in secret over an 18-year period. The DS is remembered as one of the most successful cars to ever be produced and it’s innovative design was ahead of it’s time when compared to other cars of the 1950’s.

 

Features

 

Manufactured from 1955 to 1975, the DS featured a number of unique and special features such as:

  • Hydro-pneumatic suspension for a better ride,
  • Power steering for easier turning at low speeds,
  • Disc brakes (first for a production car),
  • A fiberglass roof which lowered the center of gravity,
  • Independent suspension,
  • New radial tyre technology which Citroen engineers exploited through its parent company Michelin
  • Indicators located inside the top left and right sides of the rear windscreen.

 

The DS was designed and penned by Italian designer Flaminio Bertoni, who also designed the Citroen 2CV and the Citroen Traction Avant.  The term DS is a play on the words “Dee Esse” which translates to “Goddess”

 

Citroen DS’s that were made locally were initially built in Johannesburg. However, production was moved to Port Elizabeth in 1970, with a few differences to European version. Mainly being the seats, which were Vinyl over foam cushions, and other minor locally sourced items, making them more cost effective to produce.

 

The Citroen DS was also successful in motorsport. Winning in the Monte Carlo Rally in 1959 and 1966 as well as winning the 1000 Lakes Rally in 1962 in a DS12,

 

This is a South African made model manufactured in 1973 that benefits from upgraded hydraulic fluid (LHM). This makes it less corrosive and more practical when driving on different types of terrain. A comprehensive restoration was done about 10 years ago. A recent service of the carburetors, oil and filters has recently been completed, giving it a new lease on life for years to come.

what makes this car special?

Maserati have been well known for their luxurious GT cars and saloons for many years now and the Quattroporte is their signature luxury saloon. The Maserati Quattroporte is a four-door luxury sports sedan. The name is translated from Italian, meaning four doors.

 

The fourth generation Quattroporte (Tipo AM337) was unveiled at the Turin Auto Show in April 1994 and was built from 1994 to 2001 under the full ownership of Fiat. It was built on an evolved and stretched version of the Bi Turbo saloons’ architecture with a steel monocoque chassis and used twin-turbocharged V6 and V8 engines respectively from the Ghibli and Maserati Shamal coupes.

 

The Quattroporte also featured all independent suspension with MacPherson struts upfront and trailing arms in the rear section for improved and optimal handling and comfort. Weight was reduced by 300kg due to the Quattroporte’s underpinnings that it shares with the Biturbo.

 

The interior was done with comfort in mind, fully upholstering it in a combination of Conolly leather and elm burl wood veneer to give it a homely and welcoming feel. The elegant, signature Maserati clock is also spotted above the climate controls in the center.

 

The wedge shaped aerodynamic body with angular rear wheel arches was the work of Marcello Gandini, who was also responsible for the designs of the Lamborghini Miura and Countach.

 

This is a low mileage Maserati Quattroporte with the 2.8l V6 Twin Turbo engine with 280 BHP. It will accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 5.9 seconds and will reach a top speed of 255km/h.

It has recently had a major refurbishment programme completed at Crossley & Webb. A good opportunity to acquire Italian luxury for a bargain.

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. The improvements from the previous 450SL included the following:

  • An all alloy overhead camshaft 5 litre V8 producing 235 BHP
  • Improvement to overall fuel consumption
  • Shorter wheelbase for better agility and handling
  • Front and rear spoilers added for downforce
  • Improvements and revisions to the independent suspension
  • Improved braking system for optimal stopping performance

 

The 500SL could reach 100km/h from a standstill in 8.1 seconds and could hit a top speed of 220km/h, which was impressive for a convertible of that era. The SL500s was also used as rally cars back in the 1980’s, taking part in the Group 2 class of the WRC.

 

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 the technical report is available for inspection.

The X350 model Jaguar XJ were produced from 2003 to 2007 and were designed with an all-aluminium chassis and body, making it lighter and more agile compared to the previous generation it replaces. Along with the exterior improvements, it is also more practical too as the interior and luggage space was increased.

 

The interior is a welcoming sight of comfortable leather seats and walnut burl wood grain trim covering the doors, dashboard and steering wheel. Along with the luxurious interior, there is a few modern safety features that will prove to be useful. These include the four channel anti-lock brakes with emergency assist as well as the airbags situated in the front and sides of the XJR.

 

The Jaguar XJR came with an Eaton supercharged 4.2 litre V8 which produced 390 BHP and is coupled to a smooth 6 speed automatic transmission for smooth and effortless driving with decent fuel economy for long range trips. Dynamic stability and traction control came as standard to put all the power down to the road and provide the best amount of grip possible at full performance, making the XJR capable hitting 100km/h from a standstill in less than 5 seconds.

 

Standard equipment that came with the Jaguar XJR includes the following:

  • Leather seats
  • Dual zone active climate control
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Electronically adjustable steering wheel and pedals
  • Air suspension
  • 8-speaker, 320-watt sound system

 

This example was purchased by Crossley & Webb in 2015 for use by our Sales Manager and has covered approximately 40 000km since. It has undergone extensive servicing and refurbishment prior to being listed for sale.

The TR7 was the first clean sheet design in the Triumph TR2, TR3, TR4, TR5 and TR6 sportscar line
Initially it was produced as a coupe only as at the time many motor manufacturers expected convertibles to be banned in the USA.

 

The wedge shaped exterior of the TR7 was designed by Chris Mann, who was also responsible for the design of the Austin Allegro and the MG Maestro Turbo and has an overall curb weight of 1104 kilograms, making it a light and agile sports coupe.

 

There was a V8 model planned for the TR7 model line but due to labour disputes at British Leyland plus Rover and MG having first priority on supply of the Rover 3.5l V8, this model never officially materialised until very late in the life cycle of the TR7 (most were sold in America). Several test prototypes were built for the purpose of dealer feedback in the UK and some enthusiasts carried out their own professional conversions as is the case with this example. The result of the 3.5L V8 conversion is an acceleration time to 100km/h from a standstill in the lower 8 second mark.

 

The Triumph TR7 was also featured in a few television shows in the mid to late 1970’s, featuring in programmes like Dallas and The New Avengers.

 

This example of the Triumph TR7 has had a professional conversion done some years back which transformed the performance now with the 3.5l V8 fitted. At R 149 950 this is a lot of fun and performance for the money.
