2007 Aston Martin V8 Vantage s/n C05535

Finished from new in an elegant “Elusive Blue” with a Caspian Blue dash, center console, door inner panels, upper rear shelf and trim panels with Sandstorm leather seats and lower rear shelf over luxurious Royal Blue carpets. Stunning bodywork styled by Ian Callum and Henrik Fisker. imported by Aston in March of 2007 and sold new in July 2007 to its first and only owner. The Aston’s angular body and classic GT-coupe proportions—long hood, short rear deck, laid back windshield and aggressive stance personified state of the art exotic machinery, unique British engineering, race victories at the 24 hours of Le Mans and the personal transportation of one James Bond. Bulging rear fenders cover extra-wide rear wheels (the fronts are 8.5″ wide, the rears are 9.5″). Power is put to the ground by a high-revving, all-alloy, quad-overhead-cam, 32-valve, 4.3 liter, dry-sump V8 delivering 380 horsepower with 305 pound-feet of torque, mated with a traditional three-pedal, six-speed manual gearbox. With all its cylinder bores behind the front axle, the V8 Vantage is, by definition, a mid-engine car while the rear-mounted transaxle also improves front leg room and weight distribution. Weight saving is a priority, thanks to a carbon fiber driveshaft, door handles, front fascia, hood, door surrounds, diffuser, trunk lid and trunk enclosure, while the rest of the body shell and chassis are in aluminum. The suspension is equally exotic, with forged aluminum double wishbones, aluminum bodied shocks and 19 inch wheels with 245/40 ZR 19 front and 285/35 ZR 19 rear Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. Performance is excellent with a 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and an absolute top speed of 185 mph. Aston Martin V8 Vantage s/n C05535 needs nothing but a new owner and offers modern supercar performance, packaging and presence. Complete with all paperwork back to the window sticker, all service records and correspodence since new, the owner’s handbook, the trickle charger, both keys, both remotes and a clean Carfax.

1972 De Tomaso Pantera s/n 03503

Sold new by Sachs & Sons, Downey, CA, and has been a southern California car from new. Restored in 2007-2008 by Larry Ducas. Stripped to bare metal and repainted in an attractive yellow over the original black interior. The engine, transaxle, brakes and suspension were all rebuilt and s/n 03503 was then shown at multiple southern California vintage car shows in 2008-2012. Marti Report on file. Unquestionably among the most attractive of the exotic Italian automotive designs of the golden-era of pre-rubber-bumper, pre-smog supercars. Thanks to the sleek body lines penned by Tom Tjaarda and coachwork by Ghia, the chrome-bumper Pantera features a long, low hood line, a compact yet comfortable cabin and an abrupt cutoff Kamm tail rear, trademark styling of other 1970s mid-engined supercars such as the Lamborghini Miura and the Maserati Bora. Abundant power is supplied thanks to an ultra-dependable, mid-mounted, 4-bolt main 5.7-liter, 351 Ford Cleveland engine. While the original Pantera was easily capable of the supercar performance levels of the Miura and far quicker than the Maserati Bora, the Pantera was also known for its effortless torque at both low and high speeds and ultra-low cost maintenance. Thanks to a low center of gravity, excellent weight distribution, minimal weight on the front end, a bullet-proof 5-speed ZF transaxle, a powerful clutch and more-than adequate A/C, the Pantera is user-friendly, easy to drive, predictable, balanced and forgiving. Rust free, fully-sorted and serviced US-delivered Pantera in excellent cosmetic condition. A structurally excellent example that makes a strong cosmetic impression and delivers exceptional performance, retaining the purity of the early 1970s cars. Smog-exempt in California and most other states.

1963 Lancia Flaminia Sport 3C Zagato s/n 3731

1963 Lancia Flaminia Zagato “Double Bubble” alloy bodied 3C s/n 824133*3731. Ordered new from Max Hoffman, the Lancia importer, this short chassis, alloy bodied, three carb lightweight has had only one owner. When purchased, Lancia Zagato 3C s/n *3731 was entered in the 1963 Sebring 12 hour race but didn’t arrive until late March and so was shipped directly back to Europe and raced in the 1963 Targa Florio on May 5th, winning the Auto Club di Pescara trophy. Zagato 3C *3731 was then driven to Belgium and “Double Bubble” s/n *3731 ran in the 500 km Spa on the 12th of May, finishing 3rd in class. On the 19th of May s/n *3731 next raced in the 1000 km Nürburgring. Next stop was back across the Atlantic to the Bahamas where Lancia Zagato 3C s/n *3731 was raced in the 10th Annual Bahamas Speed Week’s Governor’s Trophy race on Dec. 6th, the Nassau Classic race on Dec. 7th and the Nassau Trophy race on Dec. 8th 1963. Once back in the US Lancia Zagato 3C s/n *3731 was raced at the 2000 km Daytona on the 16th of Feb., 1964. In 1965 Zagato 3C s/n *3731 was raced in the 12 hours of Sebring, the SCCA National at Courtland on the 30th of May and then back to Sebring a year later for the 12 hours of Sebring on the 26th of March 1966. More recently, Lancia “Double Bubble” s/n *3731 has been driven in the Beyond the West Rally in Montana in 1999 and the first cento ore di Modena in May, 2000 plus the historic coupe des alpes; the rally des alpes, and the Targa Florio/Giro di Sicilia historic, all in 2000. Even more recently, s/n *3731 was driven from Oklahoma to Florida for the 2007 Amelia island Concours, winning the “Enthusiast’s Trophy” for the longest drive to Amelia followed by an entry in the 24 minutes of Daytona. In August of 2008 “Double Bubble” s/n *3731 was shown at the Quail and then ran in Group 3B on Sunday at the Monterey Historics. Lancia “Double Bubble” s/n *3731 comes with both the FIA Historic Vehicle Identity Form and the FIVA Identity Card plus the original FIA Homologation papers; its original grille with the Lancia badge and a Sports Car Club of America badge; two spare alloy engine blocks with liners; two spare cast alloy oil pans; four spare cylinder heads; a spare transaxle; a spare rear window glass; a spare distributor and drive unit and more. Also comes with the plate and plaque from Amelia Island, an original parts catalogue, an original owner’s manual and the 1963 ADAC 1000km of the Nürburgring entrant’s and driver’s armbands. Lancia “Double Bubble” s/n *3731 redefines “Patina” and would benefit from a sympathetic restoration and a very major service before its next event. Needless to say s/n *3731 offers an amazing and unique ultra-long-term fifty-five year ownership history and truly amazing race provenance over forty-five years of active race history. Because the Flamina was introduced in 1956, Lancia “Double Bubble” s/n *3731 should be eligible for almost any historic late 1950s and 60s event on the planet.
