Jaguar S Type 2.5 SE 2004  RESERVED
A model which has started to rise a little in value as increasing rarity for the best models is becoming apparent. This petrol V6 SE is an early’05 model which is easily distinguished by the re-styled rear design and more modern instrumentation with distinctive round dials. It has been in the hands of the original owners since brand new and we purchased it directly from the family. Serviced fastidiously with supporting stamps and sundry paperwork, the mileage is just 25,000 since new which, in terms of provenance and condition should ranks it as one of the best survivors. Finished in deep Emerald Green- the classic Jaguar colour with cosseted and unmarked Cashmere Hide. this is a stunning late model S Type in every respect.

Bentley Continental GT 2004 RESERVED
We purchased this very special example directly from the first and only owner. The paperwork file is massive from the original order confirmation letters exchanged between Bentley and the customer, a file of pristine main dealer invoices charting the vehicle maintenance and 14 Bentley service stamps- now on the second book. And yet, this car has covered just 5,000 (five thousand) miles from new. The bodywork, paintwork, interior and all bright work is original and free of any repair since the owner took delivery. Finished in Dark Sapphire with Saffron Hide and Nautica hide dash top roll: Extensive specification and additional extras specified include 19”multi spoke wheels, coming home controls and indoor cover. This is a truly amazing car which would shine through as exceptional even in the company of much newer, low mileage examples.

Jaguar S Type 2.5 SE 2004 £ 6, 995
One of the first (’05 model) with significant styling changes which distinguishes the final phase of this popular model- an entirely re-designed back and new dashboard layout. This particular car benefits from the lower road tax (pre- 06) band. With 13 main dealer service stamps, and just 46,000 miles covered since new, this is a choice example. Finished in Topaz with Cream Hide, the car is in truly immaculate order partly due to a body rust-proofing procedure carried out when it was new. Complete with a high specification, this is good value.

Jaguar X Type 2.5 SE AWD Estate 2004 £ 7, 995
With ‘all-wheel drive’ and petrol specification, these are a refined and good looking option for a practical, compact Jaguar. Low mileage examples are increasingly thin on the ground, and there is a following for these luxury cars. We purchased this one owner example directly from the family and it has covered just 29,000 miles with documented history. Presented to an immaculate standard, this Jaguar is finished in Topaz Metallic with Cashmere Hide. Following a couple of years with little use, we have had the car re-commissioned with new discs, front suspension bushes, sump gasket, serviced etc so it is ready to be used and enjoyed.

Rolls Royce Silver Spirit 2 1990 RESERVED
The previous owner purchased this fine example in 1997 when it had covered just 18,000 miles with a superb Rolls Royce service record, and since then it has been driven a further 7,000 bringing the total mileage since new to just 25,000. The care and attention paid to this superb Rolls Royce has never faltered and it boasts an incredible servicing history with 24 main dealer stamps- now well in to its second service book. Equally, the Dark Sapphire Blue coachwork and Cream Hide upholstery (piped in dark blue) bear testament to extremely careful use- even the lambs’ wool rugs and factory over carpets look pristine. Astonishing value for a car in fantastic condition with such presence.

Daimler Super Eight 2008 RESERVED
An extreme shortage of the most prestigious Daimler marque, and top level specification has enabled this very last of line to become a sought after modern classic. With origins dating back to 1899 and a vehicle often associated with transporting Royalty and Prime Ministers, Daimler has played an important role in the history of motoring. With production having ceased ten years ago, the very last late X358 model is a very rare and highly prized commodity for those wishing to savour the delights of the supremely elegant and sumptuous, yet agile and modern super-charged Daimler . A stunningly beautiful Silversand example which has a spotless and fastidiously cared for Ivory Hide interior piped in Sable,  it boasts an excellent, stamped service history supporting  genuine mileage of just 36,000 since new. We purchased this car from the original family three years ago and supplied it to the last owner. This must be one of the lowest mileage examples, and those in the know will appreciate this really is a one- off opportunity and a collectors’ item in the making.

Daimler Double Six HE 1990 £ 16, 750
Final phase of the beloved Series 3, the last direct descendant of the original classic XJ which celebrates 50 years since its launch. In its time, these run-out models were produced alongside the more modern (and cheaper) XJ40, so they were only sold in small numbers to purchasers who savoured both the traditional, original styling with specification upgrades and the exquisite V12 engine. Most were exported, and a UK specification car such as this is extremely rare, with just a handful of low mileage cars existing. This ’91 model year Double Six has covered just 38,000 miles since new and boasts a fastidiously kept service history. The book was filled with service stamps by 2009, and there is huge file with invoices and maintenance records bang up to date. The previous owner, to whom we supplied this car requested the replacement of many significant mechanical and perishable items on a precautionary basis so the car could be run ‘for best’ alongside his everyday XJ (owned for 35 years). Finished in Regency Red with Magnolia Hide, this is a fine machine.

Mercedes Benz SLK 350 2006 RESERVED
The second phase SLK is probably the most attractive with its characterful, assertive frontal design and retro -dash. This has the rarer and sought option of the 3.5 V6 making it a serious little sports car with tremendous performance and handling capabilities. This particular example has a most reassuring pedigree with its intended use from new as a special occasion fun car to be enjoyed by mother and daughter, and we purchased it directly from the family. With main dealer servicing and just 16,000 miles from new, this must be one of the most cosseted, low mileage SLK’s and all the more unusual as a top- spec car. Finished in Iridium Silver Metallic with Charcoal-Black Hide, it is the classic combination. This car is in pristine condition.

Jaguar XJ8 Executive 4.0 2000 £11, 750
There can be few cars consistently maintained to this high standard. Despite an exceptionally low mileage of 24,000, this Jaguar has been faithfully returned to the main dealer every year for a service and pre- MOT Jaguar VHC. Consequently, there has never been a mechanical advisory logged on the MOT history, let alone a fail. The service book is stamped right through and previous bills back to the original bill of sale are in a file. New Pirelli tyres have covered just a few hundred miles. We supplied this car previously to the second owner, a knowledgeable, life-long motoring enthusiast who had an array of exotic classics over the decades, and we have just re- acquired it from the Estate following his sad passing. It is finished in the ever popular Pacific Blue with Sand Hide upholstery. Being relatively rare as a standard wheel base 4 litre, this is a fine cruising car in tip- top condition throughout and a unique opportunity to acquire such a fastidiously kept example of this fondly regarded modern classic.

We are pleased to offer a truly spotless and exceptionally original example which has had one fastidious owner from new and covered just 16,000 miles. It has been faithfully returned to the same dealership each year (though they became Nissan agents following the demise of Rover) and has a pristine, fully stamped service book and wallet containing the supporting bills and original documents. This is the desirable Connoisseur V6 model with manual transmission, and it looks the part in an attractive shade of Forrest Green Metallic with matching Hide Upholstery attractively piped in Cream.

Daimler Super V8 2002 £6, 750
Supplied new to a large bank in Scotland, this very unusual and highly specified super-charged V8 was then sold on through RA Creamer to the second owner from whom we acquired it in 2007. Our purchaser, a long term client has owned it for 11 years, maintaining through HA Fox and latterly a known specialist servicing dealer- the service book is full up. The car has received much attention underneath and is recently waxoiled . The mileage has just turned 100,000 and this Daimler both looks and drives very  well. Being a rare, very late production X308, it has the steel- liners and later timing chains. This will suit an owner who will enjoy the distinctiveness of this super-charged V8 which is both striking and possibly unique in Anthracite Black metallic with Charcoal ‘ruched’ Hide and tinted glass which is smoked to the rear. With glistening chrome window surrounds, mirror backings, light surrounds, fluted grilles to front and rear contrasting the deep lustre of its coachwork, this is an awesome looking machine.

When the owner passed away, the vehicle was sold through a known marque specialist to the second owner from whom we have now purchased it directly. This gentleman is a long term Jaguar owner and enthusiast who is only parting with this unique car due to emigration. The mileage is now just 18,000 miles since new. Finished in White Onyx with Charcoal ruched Hide, black original lambs’ wool rugs and a deep walnut shade of veneers, this Sovereign features electric rear and side/rear privacy blinds.

Rolls Royce Silver Spirit 2 1990 RESERVED
Values have nudged up in recent years as the crisp lines of the Spirit are becoming admired, and cared for examples have suddenly become rarer. The second generation benefits from  automatic ride control, fuel injection and ABS providing a fine balance of contemporary driving features without compromising the design. This special order car continued to be maintained by the factory for some years for the fastidious first owner, and his observations are recorded on work-sheets in the history file- the car once being returned to Rolls Royce for rectification of a scratched carpet fastener!  Finished in Dark Oyster with Beige Hide piped in Walnut to match carpets, leather top-roll, steering wheel and lambs’ wool over-rugs. Chrome rear quarter badges and gold inlay to the woodwork are lovely features. The mileage is just 33,000 from new, with an excellent history file from factory, main dealer and reputed specialists.

Mercedes Benz CL63 AMG RESERVED
A true ‘Jeckell and Hyde’ sports coupe which can deliver a thrilling ride from 525bhp and 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, and yet be equally satisfied cruising around town with its sumptuously appointed cabin offering a relaxing and luxurious drive. Such quality and engineering excellence cost in excess of £100,000 so CL63’s were a specialised purchase, and there are never more than a small few on the market these days- the low mileage and non-abused ones are rapidly disappearing. In a timelessly classic Merc colour combination, this Iridium Silver Metallic car has covered 45,000 miles from new with stamped main dealer history, and an up to date 2018 service carried out at Mercedes Benz World, Brooklands. With impeccably cared for Black Hide, AMG mats and optional Cherrywood satin veneers , the cabin is pleasantly airy with an electric sunroof. A stunning looker, a stunning performer and a top class example.

Mercedes Benz  E240 Avantgarde 2000 £5, 500
Harking back to the design classics as it was fashionable for luxury manufacturers to do in the late 1990’s, this generation of E Class will become sought in years to come being remindful of the ‘fin-tail’ generation with their bulbous and characterful frontal styling. Supplied new to the first owner by Alan Day Ltd as the original order and sales invoice state, the full main dealer maintenance switched to Mercedes Benz World when they opened in 2006, and the history file includes all invoices and a stamped service record up to 31,000 miles in 2014, when the car was stored for three years. We purchased directly from the family and have both prepared and detailed the vehicle to showroom condition as befits the car’s low mileage and provenance. Since then we have used the car ourselves covering a further 2,000 miles and new tyres have been recently fitted. Finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic with Grey Fabric.

Bentley 4.6 Mk 6 1952 £ 49, 995
This astoundingly genuine Bentley remained in the hands of the original family until 2010 and came with an abundance of old paperwork including the original factory order, purchase invoice and correspondence, buff- log book and period photograph copies featuring the car at holiday destinations dating from the 1950’s. Used little but often over the decades, the present mileage is 62,000 from new, and when the family parted with the car, it was completely unmolested, thereby providing the next and last owner the ideal basis to rejuvenate it under our guidance to a near- immaculate standard whilst being mindful not to ‘over- restore’ the vehicle. The faded, original paint was stripped to metal and repainted very well. Some re- chroming was necessary and new door rubbers were painstakingly fitted so the doors still push shut correctly. The interior is beautiful, with woodwork, headlining, carpets and door panels and carpets all original. The leather presented a quandary due to its excellent and supple condition apart from two front sections which were damaged, but years of perseverance were rewarded by the miraculous discovery of an original old- stock Connolly hide in the same colour which has now been expertly trimmed to replace these panels, and it blends with the original beautifully. With the rare and most sought after ‘big bore’ engine and synchromesh gearbox, this car drives with the tightness of a low mileage car which has never suffered neglect. The boot area and under- bonnet area (with original tools and inspection lamps present) is all superb and ready to show. Even the original ‘Gothic’ peak number plates have been dismantled and re-polished with great care. As well as the standard radiator ‘flying B’ mascot, this Bentley comes with a rare Union Jack flag and mast in miniature which was a fashionable accessory for the 1953 Coronation celebration. The ultimate sports saloon in its time, and one which boasts a commanding turn of speed mid- range, this still holds title as the most compact production Bentley so it is a very practical and easily stored classic with huge presence. Finished in Black with Tan Leather .
