1966 Ferrari 275 Coys of Kensington

1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/4: With incredible styling and pedigree as both a race and street car, the 275 GTB was a vehicle produced in the transitional period for Ferrari as the company expanded its offering for mass produced street cars. This example is one of the most significant in existence – as the first 275 GTB 4 produced and was used at the Paris Motor show to unveil the model in 1966. Finished in traditional Rossa Corsa with black leather trim, it is arguably the most documented 275 in the world.

2004 Mercedes Benz Coys of Kensington

2004 Mercedes-Benz SLR: This vehicle has unparalleled performance and power, boasting a SLR McLaren 5.5-litre, 24-valve, supercharged V8 engine that produces 617bph. The car takes just 3.8 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100km (62mph) and a top speed of 334 km/h (207 mph). This nearly showroom ready vehicle carries an estimate of £200,000 – £250,000.

2011 Porsceh GT3 RS Coys of Kensington

2011 Porsche GT3 RS 4.0: With only 600 examples made, this model was the last hurrah for the motorsport-derived Mezger flat-six. The example on offer is a one-owner car, ordered new from Porsche Stuttgart and delivered to Japan. It has covered just 2,991 km from new (1,859 mi), and holds a special place in Porsche history as likely the last manual “RS” variant. The car is estimated between £220,000 – £250,000.
