The out of the ordinary Volvo Rare and quirky – saintly The Volvo P1800 is a 2+2, front-engine, rear-drive sports car manufactured and marketed by Volvo between 1961-1973. Originally a coupe (1961–1971), it was altered into a shooting-brake for the duration of its production. The ES was actually manufactured in Switzerland and in 1973 only the 1800ES was produced by Volvo. The 1800ES first introduced in 1971 had a newly designed rear end compared with the previous versions of the 1800. The roofline was extended and the car had a profile that was more reminiscent of an estate. Self evidentially the 1800ES had increased luggage capacity to provide extra space for golfing or hunting equipment Under the surface, the technology in the 1800ES was the same as that in the other 1800 models. As made famaous by Roger Moore in the iconic TV series The Saint. Only 8000 P1800 Estates were produced and roughly 2000 these were made for the UK market. Some say there are only about 90 left. The Volvo P1800 ES is a remarkably usable, practical classic that offers reliability and real confidence, it is after all a Volvo. This 1973 automatic Volvo 1800ES originated in Guernsey by its […]

The Mk II, capable of 136 mph and 0-60 in 6.7 seconds that’s good by today’s standards let alone 50 years ago This Jensen CV8 has a well documented and fascinating provenance and its story can be followed back to when it was first registered in 1965 The car has been subject to comprehensive restoration work and attention during the 90’s and new millenium.

Super car performance from this super cat The XKR with purposeful mesh grille and bonnet slats a la E-Type delivers 400 BHP effortlessly from its 4.2 supercharged power unit Performance figures were electrifying: 0-60 at about just 5.1 seconds not far off many super cars at five times the price. The XK8 is a pretty car roof up or down; it has E-Type DNA in the bulging taper of the bonnet and the oval grille, flowing back to a low tapered roofline and squat road stance. We know this XKR having sold it to the last owner who has only covered about 3000 miles in the last 4 to 5 years. The private plate is included.

Triumph Stag MK2 – 1977 This classic British Sport Cars is a genuine 2+2 Sports Tourer Manufactured between 1970 and 1978, and styled by Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti. All Stags were four-seater Convertible Coupés, but for structural rigidity, and to meet new American rollover standards of the time, the Stag required a B-pillar roll bar hoop connected to the windscreen frame by a T-bar. A removable hardtop was a popular factory option for the early Stags, and was later supplied as a standard fitment.

Iconic Mercedes SL 320 – with hard top This model Mercedes-Benz SL was a revolution for Mercedes Out was 1970s styling of its predecessor, it in was new fresh look overseen by Bruno Sacco. It was such a successful styling job, that the R129 remained in production for more than a decade, and still looks fresh today. But the SL’s beauty was more than skin deep – it became packed with technology. Alongside the power-operated roof, it featured and dual-range four-speed automatic gearbox. Also passive safety moved to another level, thanks to a pop-up roll-over bar, that reacted within milliseconds of an impending roll-over, and a profusion of airbags and traction/stability systems.. Unlike earlier SLs, these have the performance that makes them considered proper sports cars.

Classic Mercedes – Beauty personified The car is based on the indestructable Mercedes-Benz W124 and as well have now iconic beauty is both entertaining and enjoyable drive, The styling is a masterclass, overseen by Brunco Sacco’s design team, and the shorter wheelbase (down 4in from the saloon), the CE was extremely roomy inside for such a pretty car, and was easily capable of accommodating four adults on long trips – at high speeds. The Cabriolet was a relatively late addition to the range, being launched in 1991, initially in 300CE-24 form. A little more than a year later, the models were realigned as part of the minor facelift to become the E-Class, becoming the E320 and E220 in 1993. It was the the most expensive model in the four-seat open-top class, with the Saab 900 and Audi Cabriolet gaining more sales on the back of their lower prices – but today, this is reflected in much higher values for the Mercedes-Benz. The super-desirable Cabriolet is much sought after, and are attracting serious values today.

Firstly this is a very low mileage and low owner example for the year and in fact has only covered 4000 miles on last five years. The car has clearly been well looked after; probably being taken out for the occasional sortie before being tucked up again.

Modern yet with old style elegance – a lot of car A very clean example of the iconic Jaguar XJ this one is certainly a pleasure to drive This jag has a great colour and interior combination and both outside and in is fairly pristine The recent service history is good and in 2016 she had new shocks and suspension work totalling £800. Service history 17/06/04 – 20164 28/07/06 – 36193 26/07/07 – 45060 26/03/13 – 92139 19/12/14 – 103344 07/03/16 – 110274 About Because this model XJ is more than 200kg lighter than the previous 3.2 V8 entry-level model, there is no performance deficit. What’s more, thanks to a 60 per cent stiffer bonded and riveted aluminium body, improved build and lower noise levels. If anything, the 3.0-litre is the best choice line-up. It boasts a respectable combined fuel economy figure of 27mpg, plus lower insurance costs and CO2 ratings. Standard CATS computer active suspension and traction control inspire confidence and help deliver huge levels of grip, especially with the firmer Sport set-up while the brakes offer excellent stopping power and plenty of feedback. For such a big car it has immediate and predictable responses, which give the big […]
