Classic Car Auctions Summer Sale is right around the corner and they have 195 cars that will be offered in their much awaited Summer Sale. Leading the group are two E-Types that will be offered at No Reserve.

CCA Sales Manger Gary Dunne shared, “The interest levels have been amazing in the closing couple of weeks. We have had an amazing response from our vendors with 195 cars consigned. Last week we had our star car, the Audi Quattro 20V confirmed and leading the list of No Reserves this week we have two stunning E-Type Jaguars.”

Both E-Types that will be on offer are in outstanding condition. One of the E-Types is a 1973 S3 FHC with a little more than 53,000 miles on the odometer. It has a rare combination of Lavender Blue exterior finish matched with a Biscuit interior and is also a UK right-hand drive car. The example was given a total rebuild which was completed back in 2017. The sale will come with a Heritage Certificate and a history file with information about the five previous owners.

1973 Jaguar E-Type S3

A 1970 S2 Roadster is the second E-Type which is also on offer at No Reserve. Perfect for summer drives, this E-Type has only had three owners from new with an odometer that reads 70,139 miles. It is finished in the classic Old English White matched with a black leather interior. Some years ago, the example had a partial body off restoration and additional work were done on the interior, and it was also given a new mohair hood. This remarkable car is the second E-Type in the Summer Sale that’s also offered at No Reserve.

“These are both wonderful classics. The E-Type is still the nation’s favourite and to have both of these cars fabulously presented is sure to generate substantial interest,” Dunne added.

The two E-Types are not the only No Reserve lots that are on offer at the Summer Sale. There are actually 50 more cars that are sure to pique the interest of collectors and enthusiasts alike. There will be classics, restoration projects, barn and garage finds, and even some 90s and 2000s cars that will soon be classics.

A wide variety of vehicles await attendees, from a 2005 Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa to a 1997 Reliant Robin LX. For those interested in sportier cars, there will be a 2000 Porsche Boxster 2.7 which will soon be considered a classic, a 2003 Mercedes Benz CLK55 AMG. Some rare examples like the VW Passat W8, a 2002 BMW Alpina B3, and a 2007 Audi RS4 Quattro are also on offer. A couple of examples of an Audi S8s, the best sporting luxury car can also be acquired during the sale, a 2002 V8 model and a 2008 V0.

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

on

custom triumph tr6 matchless frame 625x417 1

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
