H&H has assembled an 86-strong selection of collectors’ cars for its April 19 sale that’s destined to tickle the palate of enthusiasts everywhere; such is the breadth and quality of the lots entered. It is the first of the company’s new ‘Specialist Sales’ and promises to be a memorable event, during which no less than 95 carefully-selected motorcycles will also be on offer in the peerless surroundings of the Imperial War Museum, Duxford.

1966 Rolls Royce

Among the more valuable entries are:

  • 1966 Rolls-Royce Cloud III MPW Drophead Coupe (£220,000-260,000) – a simply stunning example restored at a cost in excess of £100,000
  • 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 (£150,000-180,000) - only 68 righthand drive versions were ever made: arguably the most desirable post-war Benz model aside of the mighty 300SL
  • 1970 Aston Martin DB6 Mark 2 Vantage (£150,000-180,000) - a genuine 38,800 miles example that’s remained within the same family since new
  • 1935 Singer Nine Le Mans ‘Savoye Special’ (£130,000-150,000)  – of wonderful provenance including a class win at Le Mans in 1938
  • 1936 Jaguar SS100 2.5-Litre (£120,000-140,000) – a delightful and well known car
  • 1988 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante X-Pack 6.3 (£120,000-140,000) – rare and very potent

BMW Batmobile race car

The racing and sports entries include:

  • 1972/81 BMW ‘Batmobile’ race car (£130,000-150,000) – a successful race car, on-the-button and ready to win again
  • 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray (£50,000-60,000) - stunning
  • 2005 TVR Sagaris (£32,000-36,000) – a very tidy example of arguably the best TVR of all
  • 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 (£25,000-30,000) - a time warp, one-owner car that was used in the promotion of the film Back to the Future, yet has still covered just 326 miles from new
  • 1972 Alfa Romeo 2000GTV (£12,000-14,000) – a very sensibly priced, ready-to-go FIA race car
  • 2003 Caterham Super Seven (No Reserve) – a potential bargain
  • Among the notable rarities are:
  • 1926 Arab Super Sports Low Chassis Tourer (£100,000-120,000) – one of only two Low Chassis Arab models in the world
  • 1984 Peugeot 205 T16 (£90,000-120,000) – believed to have travelled just 5,019 miles from new
  • 1946 Studebaker M Series Pick-Up (£40,000-50,000) – built to perfection by a professional restorer
  • 1924 Panhard et Levassor Type X46 Landaulette (£26,000-30,000) - unique
  • 1905 Rover 6hp (£18,000-20,000) – the oldest of very few to have survived
  • 1965 Morris Mini-Cooper S (£15,000-18,000) – a perfect replica of the Red car from the 1969 classic The Italian Job – complete with gold bars!
