5 collector cars to put in your garage this week

As a chill hits the air and the sun begins to show itself less and less, one could be forgiven for thinking that the time for classic cars is over for another year, but if this selection from the Classic Driver Market doesn’t have you dreaming of the open, cold, road, then we’d be surprised…

No school like the old school

Never mind the cute yet somewhat lacking modern homage, this 1974 Fiat 124 Sport Spider 1800 is a proper hooligan. Bestowed with a full Abarth kit and all the toys for FIA Group 4 fun, this Rosso Vivo racer is begging to be thrown around some twisting Italian countryside and maybe, as the pictures show, have some time in the air…

One of one

Created by prototype and limited-edition specialists OPAC, this 1993 Maserati Shamal OPAC Spider Prototype was displayed at the 1994 Turin Motor Show. Based on the Maserati Spyder, but with the potent V8 heart of the Shamal, this unique Maserati is a handsome reminder that the 1990s weren’t all bad for car design, and it represents a rare chance to own a unique Maserati for less than many millions…

Tarmac terror

Previously campaigned by Alain Prost, this 1991 Ferrari 643 is a ferocious and gorgeous piece of racing history. We politely beg of any future owner to not display this in their living room, garage, or hangar, but rather make the sights and sounds of a thunderous V10-engined Formula 1 hero available to the rest of the world and remind us of how things used to be…

Less chassis, more power

Rarer than a DB4 GT Zagato and more powerful than a GT8, this 2000 Aston Martin Vantage V8 Volante Special Edition SWB is as special as its title is long. Available to purchase by invitation only, this Rolls-Royce Royal Blue Beauty is powered by a supercharged 5.3-litre V8 engine. Having been upgraded to V600 specification, this super-rare drop top has 600bhp of power underneath that sculpted hood, to embarrass any uneducated sports car driver next to it at a red light…

Far from flat

The replacement of the iconic twin headlights and curvaceous flanks of the 911 with the aptly named ‘Flatnose’ front end can make or break a Porsche, and in the case of this 1983 Porsche 930 Turbo, it’s certainly the former. All original, with full matching numbers, this wedge-shaped wonder is a rare Stuttgart stormer.
