Long-term Porsche devotees will be all too familiar with the 968, introduced to the world back in 1991, and as it turned out, was to be the end of the line for Porsche’s enduring front-engined four-cylinder model line.  The 968 was developed directly from the 944, which meant adopting its well-honed and well-proven running gear, whilst presenting a fresh design aesthetic that made it feel like a significantly new model.  
The standard 968 was a great all-round sports car, but as a last ‘hurrah’ to this enduring lineage Porsche wanted to create a car tailored more for the pure enthusiast and, in particular, one that would excel in competition.  In late 1992, the 968 ‘Club Sport’ was introduced and, whilst it was mechanically identical to the standard 968 and shared the same 3.0-litre engine (producing 225lb-ft of torque and 240bhp) and 6-speed gearbox, it differed in a number of important ways. 
This track-focused run-out model adopted the philosophy of ‘less is more’ by removing all luxury-related equipment from the basic build specification.  With the no-frills approach, less weight, and clever suspension, Porsche could now focus media attention on the Club Sport's fast road and track abilities.  As soon as the press got hold of the Club Sport and discovered what a brilliant drivers’ car it was, the credibility of the 968 went through the roof.  Even Walter Röhrl reckoned it was the best handling car that Porsche made.  The CS achieved a 'Performance Car of The Year' award in 1993 from Performance Car magazine in the UK.  
In total, just 1,923 CS examples were produced worldwide, of which only 179 were UK right-hand drive models, making the Club Sport a very rare Porsche indeed.  There has been, over the years, a misconception in the motoring press that Club Sports are only Club Sports if they have bucket-seats, wind-up windows, no sunroof, manual hatch, etc., however, the Club Sport was available to order with any number of options - and indeed it frequently was.  It's very common to see Club Sports with Recaro cloth comfort sport front seats, electric windows, sunroof, air conditioning, and even rear seats whilst still sporting the 'Club Sport' badge - especially in parts of Europe and Australia.
The car presented here is a C16 (UK-delivered) right-hand drive 1994 Porsche 968 Club Sport.  Its CS status is confirmed by its specification, chassis number and accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.  This striking example, in the much sought-after combination of Black paintwork with red decals, was first registered on 6th June 1994 and pre-delivery inspected and delivered by HR Owen on 11th July 1994.  This particular CS was ordered new with black Recaro cloth comfort seats, central locking, and an electric sunroof.  
The car has covered just 61,000 miles and presents extremely well. According to the vendor it drives as well as it should too, adding that the engine idles quietly and accelerates smoothly, and the gearbox is said to feel exactly as it should swapping cogs with the precision you’d expect from a Porsche. 
The mileage is supported by a comprehensive history file, demonstrating that the car has been maintained to strict standards throughout its life, as evidenced by invoices totalling circa £18,000.  The file indicates that the cambelt was replaced at 47,000 miles, along with the balance belts and PAS belts.  A new clutch and a new dual mass flywheel were fitted at the same time and additionally, the alternator has been replaced and new gearbox mountings fitted.  Other recent work has involved a new windscreen and the steering rack and pump being overhauled. 
Rarely do you come across one of these legendary 968 CS models that is such a complete package.  Details like a full book-pack, a complete Porsche tool-kit, all keys and immobiliser fobs, and an original spare wheel help support this dutiful ownership.
The 944, the 968 and even the 928 are seeing their values rise in the wake of the '911 explosion' and front-engined Porsches are having the Renaissance they richly deserve. This is simply a lovely genuine example of arguably the most coveted front-engined Porsche model and, competitively guided, opens the door into a very exclusive club.

1958 MG A COUPE
Registration No: 297 UXW
Chassis No: HMD13/50104


  • Nut and bolt detail perfect restoration
  • Rare original colour
  • Matching numbers car
When the MGA arrived in 1955, it must have come as quite a shock to MG aficionados who had become accustomed to the pre-war look of the company's sports cars. It was a complete departure in styling and its beautiful streamlined body was right up to the minute in terms of appearance. It was powered by a new engine; MG had decided that the old XPAG unit had had its day and so introduced a much more modern B Series engine that had made its debut in the recently announced Magnette saloon. The 'A' was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1955. Only 5,869 cars were sold on the home market, giving the MGA the highest export percentage of any British car and was replaced by the MGB in May 1962.
This wonderful UK supplied right hand drive MGA Coupé has just completed a full nut and bolt, bare metal exacting restoration. Presented in its original and rare Mineral Blue it would be hard to find a better example anywhere. Such was the level of detail in the restoration that even the radiator has been re-cored with the original specification and pattern core at considerable expense. Whilst the interior was supplied as a high quality kit, it was then modified to the exact factory specification. An extra emphasis was put on retaining as many original factory parts as possible rather than just replacing parts with modern, cheap alternatives.
The restoration started off with a Hungarian enthusiast who had the engine fully rebuilt and who went through all the body taking it right back to bare metal before doing any repairs required and repainting the car. His metal work was second to none and he did a fantastic job. The current vendor bought the car off him as a rolling project and proceeded to put another 400 hours into the exacting restoration using A.D. Clausager’s Original MGA book as a guide.
A matching numbers example, this incredible car comes supplied with V5C registration document, a new MoT test certificate valid until July 2019 and a comprehensive history file including receipts from the engine rebuild, a selection of old MoT test certificates dating as far back as 1964, Heritage Certificate and photographic record of the restoration.

2009 BENTLEY BROOKLANDS COUPE
Registration No: LK59 DUV
Chassis No: SCBCC42M89CH13720

The Bentley Brooklands Coupé is a coupé version of the Bentley Arnage. As a hand-assembled car made in very small numbers, employing traditional coach-building techniques and craftsmanship skills in wood and leather, the Brooklands Coupé is the true successor to the discontinued Bentley Continental R and T. Lifetime production is planned for 550 cars, and deliveries started in the first half of 2008. The Brooklands is powered by a 6.75-litre Rolls-Royce twin-turbocharged OHV V8 engine, producing 530 horsepower and 774 lbft, the highest torque ever developed by a production V8 petrol engine. It was featured on Top Gear in series 11 by Jeremy Clarkson, and due to the car having so much torque, one of the car's tyres blew out during a power slide after prolonged aggressive driving with its traction control off. It can achieve 0 to 60 miles per hour in around 5.0 seconds, and a top speed in the region of 183.9 mph. With an optional Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite braking system with 14-inch SGL Carbon brake discs (only fitted with 20-inch wheels), the new Brooklands offers more stopping power than any other passenger vehicle currently available for purchase.
This low mileage, one owner, 2009 Bentley Brooklands Coupé was supplied new by Bentley West Country based in Exeter, it was then regularly serviced every year until 2013 by Bentley Hadley Green in Hertfordshire; the last service there with the speedo reading 25,730 miles. The next service in 2014 at a mileage of 30,121 miles was carried out by Bentley specialists Wraith Continental Ltd. and the last service was done in June this year by P&A Wood, Essex with the odometer reading 43,026 miles. The car is finished in blue with Autumn leather interior complimented with a light-coloured veneer to the dash board and door capping’s. This excellent Bentley Brooklands Coupé is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate and the handbook pack containing owner’s manual and service record book. As the successor to the Bentley Continental R and T it fulfils the role of being the ultimate gentleman’s cruiser providing the owner/driver the best in luxury and grace.

1971 VOLKSWAGEN BEACH BUGGY
by KOMBAT
Registration No: WKT 464J
Chassis No: 11122898864


or Beach Buggies built on the chassis of an existing vehicle, the Volkswagen Beetle was commonly used as the basis for the buggy. The Beetle platform was used because the rear engine layout improves traction, the air-cooled engine avoids the complexities and failure points associated with a water-cooled engines. The front suspension was considered cheap and robust and the spare parts from Volkswagen were cheap and readily available. Beach Buggies with glass-reinforced plastic (fiberglass) bodies come in many shapes and sizes. The original fiberglass Beach Buggy was the 1964 ‘Meyers Manx’ built by Bruce Meyers. Many other companies worldwide have copied the original fiberglass Beach Buggy.

This Beach Buggy is based on a 1300 Beetle that was originally registered on 4th January 1971 and was converted into its current format by Kombat. We are advised by the vendor that she runs well and is great fun to drive. The engine starts ‘on the button’ and the gearbox operates smoothly and correctly. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 22nd May 2019 this Beach Buggy is offered for sale without reserve.
