5 collector cars to put into your garage this week

The Classic Driver Market is home to a constantly changing cornucopia of irresistible collector cars, and this week we’ve found a lightweight British modern classic, a wild American off-roader, and a JDM icon, each deserving of a spot in your garage!

Baja Bronco

Ford Broncos have competed at the gruelling Baja 1000 since the 1960s, so this 2023 Ford Bronco DR produced in collaboration with off-road experts Multimatic makes perfect sense to us! This isn’t just a wild bodykit and a lovely coat of Porsche Nato Olive paint either: this Bronco DR is basically a turn-key trophy truck packed to the fender flares with state-of-the-art technology. 

The 5.0-litre 418 horsepower Ford Performance V8 is certainly impressive, but what truly separates this from regular civilian Broncos is the Baja-tuned suspension, which features FOX shock absorbers, custom springs, and anti-roll bars. Finished off with gigantic 37-inch BF Goodrich tyres, there’s no terrain that could buck this Bronco. 




One S2K to Rule them All

To the uninitiated, this 2009 Honda S2000’s cartoonish rear wing and aggressive front splitter might point to a recent run-in with the local tuning crowd, but in reality this is one of Honda’s greatest creations: the S2000 CR, or “Club Racer”.

Honda waved farewell to the widely-loved S2000 with just 699 units of the CR, each featuring a lighter leather-free interior, racier suspension, wider rear tyres, the aforementioned crazy aero, and a big brace where the soft top would have been. That’s right, S2000 CR drivers must choose between hard top and no top, a small tradeoff for one of the greatest driving experiences to come out of Japan. This 2009 Berlina Black example is undoubtedly one of the finest on the planet, because where else are you going to find another S2000 CR with just 617 miles on the clock?




Laughing but not Stock

It may be relatively unknown with just 24 models ever built, be we think the Lancia Hyena Zagato is one of the greatest creations to come out of either brand. Based on the homologated version of one of the most successful rally cars of all time, the Lancia Delta Integrale, visually the Hyena seems to share more in common with its infamous cousin from Alfa Romeo, the SZ. 

This example is in stellar condition, showing just 31,200 kilometres, while it’s fabulous turquoise Alcantara interior appears almost brand new. Recently, this Hyena benefitted from a full makeover at the hands of marque specialists Italiamotorsport Parussini of Udine, Italy in 2022. Now boasting over 320 horsepower, this Girgio Alloy Hyena is sure to make you laugh. 




Micro McLaren 

Usually when we think of lightweight, composite-bodied British sports cars finished in Papaya, McLaren springs to mind, but this orange S1 Lotus Elise is arguably even better! The Elise’s first generation was already looking sweeter by the day, but now that the model’s production has sadly come to an end, this example from 2000 is too good to ignore. 

If this Elise’s orange-over-black specification wasn't already appealing enough, its truly remarkable one-owner history should seal the deal. Recently serviced, this car retains its original steering wheel and soft top, and has covered a mere 3,791 miles since new. If you’re looking to add an Elise to your collector car portfolio, you could hardly do better! 




YSL’s Roller

1974 was a big year for Yves Saint Laurent, not just because it was the year he founded his fashion house with Pierre Bergé, but also because it was the year he ordered this gorgeous Rolls Royce Silver Shadow. Originally, Mr. Laurent went with a special optional colour, Chicassion Blue, over dark brown leather upholstery, but he would later repaint his Roller in this fabulous shade of dark green metallic. 

While the beautifully patinated original upholstery remains, we have to commend the change of specification. Currently in fine mechanical condition, this Silver Shadow has had just two further owners since new and is reportedly a dream on the open road. Estimated to fetch between 20,000 and 30,000 at Aguttes’ Spring Sale, this could be a true bargain of a luxury barge.
