Stunning Bentley Arnage 6.8 ltr Red Label with good history and very few miles over the last 5 years
Porsche 968 Cabriolet – a rare and wonderful thing For a car that delivers not far short of minor supercar performance and handling, the 968’s build quality is outstanding too. Though it is fair to say the Cabrio is more of a cruiser. It’s instantly clear that all 968s were designed specifically as proper sportscars from the moment you settle into the driver’s seat. If you’re a fan of the marque you’ll know about the 968’s driver appeal, its reliability and ruggedness. It was voted by Performance Car magazine the best handling car 1993, so even then the 968 had a lot going for it. Nowadays its quite a rare sight on Britain’s roads, and coupled with the fact that it was only produced for three years, makes used examples less than commonplace. 968s have a 3.0-litre engine and rack and pinion power-assisted steering, is powered by the 944 S2’s 3.0-litre engine, but with variable valve timing to improve power, torque and fuel economy. Factor in super-responsive steering, old fashioned rear drive and a front-rear weight distribution that’s not far off 50:50, and you’re left with a car whose heart and soul is pure sportscar. Our 1993 model has a […]
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.
First off this car has spent sometome in Japan – dont be alarmed by this its actually a good thing because generally they were much more treasured and looked after than those that remained here, plus are much less prone to rust because of the climate (less salt on the roads) This car was manufactured in 1992 and spent sometime in Japan before being exported back to the UK. Clearly in Japan she was very much cherished and enjoyed the lack of salt for ice therefore, hasn’t rusted. The Double Six is a fast car, as it should be with a 5.3L, 313bhp V12 engine, and the power delivery is matched to an equally smooth automatic transmission. The Double Six was far cheaper than the cheapest Rolls-Royce or Bentley in its day but oozes much the same opulence and is virtually as well made Engine 5,993cc. V12 cylinders, 313bhp at 5,350rpm. Four-speed automatic gearbox, rear-wheel drive. Top speed 152mph, 0-60 in 7.5 seconds. Fuel consumption 14-19mpg. Polished walnut and soft leather abound, of course, and rear passengers have plenty of toys to play with. Each rear seat reclines electrically, and a further set of controls on the back of the […]
Eye catching example of the desirable R129 Mercedes sports car The car is very much in excellent all round condition and MOT’d until October 2019. Finished in Vivianite Green and suplied with hard top as well as upgraded premium Alpine sound system plus additional amp.

This car is the best compromise between sport/luxury, power/economy, and it is oozes class and performance There aren’t too many surprises with a 5 Series. You know it’s going to be beautifully built, great to drive, understated and well equipped. This BMW is no exception but with its low mileage and single ownership this has to be one the best around and also has the SE trim The E39 was also an impressive piece of engineering, using more lightweight materials than any previous BMW, including a new aluminium subframe and – for the first time in a 5-series – rack-and-pinion steering. The new set-up gave fine handling balance and a level of agility that made the E39 feel like a much smaller car from behind the wheel. The E39, when laucnched and remains a true great.
