5 collector cars to put in your garage this week
Rock ‘n’ Roller
Don’t let the relatively high mileage of this 2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom put you off – over the course of its six-year life, this Silver and Metropolitan Blue Series II example has been thoroughly maintained, its record showing annual services at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Brussels. What’s more, the gargantuan and generously-specified limousine is offered for just 149,500 euros. That’s hardly a price tag befitting this Roller’s unrivalled opulence, we’re sure you’ll agree, especially when you consider it cost more than double that new.
Very Important Provenance
Even in the rarefied world of the Ferrari Enzo, there are cars that stand taller than others. This very special Enzo from 2002 is one such example. Just the second example to roll off the production line in Maranello, the car was promptly sent to the Ferrari Racing Days at the Nürburgring where none other than Michael Schumacher, at that point already a three-time Formula 1 World Champion, put it through its paces. Interestingly, very early Enzos exhibited more visible carbon-fibre through the paint, just like the F40s and F50s that preceded them, and this car’s weave is apparently particularly prevalent.
Not accustomed to waiting in line for the latest and greatest sports cars from the major manufacturers? Fear not, we’ve got you covered. This is the first 992-generation Porsche 911 we’ve spotted in the Classic Driver Market. It’s a right-hand-drive 2019 Carrera S Coupé finished in Agate Grey (beneath the matte protective wrap) over Slate Grey leather and fitted with all the must-have optional extras including the sports exhaust and rear-wheel steering.
The final two-door Range Rover
This 1994 Range Rover Classic has the distinction of being the last two-door variant to roll out of the factory in Solihull. And because Land Rover recently decided to can its modern SV Coupé, it thus remains the last production two-door Range Rover ever built. The origins of this three-owner car are unusual. In order to reach its first owner in Portugal, Land Rover had to sell the two-door Range Rover in ‘van’ configuration. After the car was successfully imported, the car was returned to ‘road’ specification before delivery. The advert for the car reminded us that next year marks the 50th anniversary of the Range Rover and this would certainly be a significant car with which to celebrate the occasion.
For Stirling and Denis
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 might look like a Grand Tourer, but the 650HP sledgehammer was more than a match for its mid-engined supercar contemporaries. Just 150 cars were built to commemorate Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson’s historic victory in the 1955 Mille Miglia when they drove a Mercedes-Benz 300SLR bearing the number 722. This UK-delivered example from 2007 is in immaculate condition and looks downright evil in its shade of Crystal Osmium Grey.
