Market Finds – Body-conscious athletes
1995 Bentley Turbo Limousine
If you thought a ‘regular’ Bentley Turbo R represented a lot of car for the money, then consider this 21.7-ft limousine version – it was delivered new to San Francisco after a no-expense conversion that cost almost as much as the donor car. The additional length provides space for an additional two rear-facing passengers and, in true ’90s-limo style, their conversations will be kept confidential by the privacy screen. All that’s missing is a Mulliner boomerang antenna.
1992 Ferrari 348 TB Challenge
So your 458 Speciale is an ultra-focused track car for the road? That’s cute. Its lineage can be traced back to the 348 TB Challenges of the early 1990s, which were converted from standard road cars by official Ferrari dealers for use in a single-series European championship. Between 1993 and 1995, this example entered three years running, finally winning the title in 1995. So, this road-legal racing car has some serious provenance of its own, rather than merely claiming some through mechanical association.
1963 Austin-Healey 3000
1983 Lynx XJS Eventer
1989 Porsche 962C Brun Motorsport
Now Peter Auto has breathed new life into the Group C racing series, demand for eligible cars is higher than ever. At the top of the pile in desirability terms are Porsche 962s with an iconic livery – and they don’t come much more striking than the Jägermeister colours, worn by many successful Porsches. One of eight built by Brun Motorsport, this 1989 962C (chassis 962-006BM) enjoyed outings at the Nurburgring and Spa, driven by Roland Ratzenberger at the latter. Now restored and wearing its orange colours (it also wore Eterna and Repsol liveries in period), this is a sobering opportunity to acquire an original Jägermeister Porsche eligible for one of the most topical historic racing series of the moment.
