We are pleased to offer for sale this gorgeous and very quick RHD Lotus Elan S2 was bought by the current owner in 2000 and was subsequently completely build-up to the latest 26R specification.
Upon completion, the car has been raced very successfully at both the national and international level up to 2012. The owner then switched to racing a 2 litre prototype which is why the Elan is now up for sale.
The dry sump engine has been built by John Smirtwait delivering 190 bhp and only has 10 hours of running since its last rebuild. The other specs are as follows:
The car comes with extensive spares which include a spare set of wheels and spare diff. with LSD 4.1-ratio.
Given that this Elan racer sat idle for a few years, the following would need to be done to bring it to race ready condition : go through the car with renewal of fluids and update belts and fire system.
A new, 2015 FIA HTP application is underway and comes with the car. Road registration can be easily done by its new owner as old title/registration document exists.
This excellent Elan S2/26R is located in Belgium where it can be inspected subject to appointment.
We are very pleased to offer this unique Chevron B23, the only Chevron sportscar which was powered with a Cosworth DFV engine by the factory. As the car started life as a B23 with chassis number B23-73-21, we will refer to the car by its chassis number.
The car is in fresh, race ready condition with a latest spec G. Richardson DFV engine (2 hours on it) and still has its original, rebuild gearbox. The ownership chain from its 1st owner to the present owner is clear and uninterrupted. B23-73-21 is well documented and comes with an attestation by Chevron Cars Ltd. The car is currently being fitted with its correct B23 bodywork in "CEBORA" livery by Chevron Racing Ltd and a new, 2015 FIA HTP has been applied for.
This one-off Chevron will provide its new owner with lots of driving joy while being a front runner in today's historic racing scene around the world.More...
We have the pleasure to offer for sale the ex-Tony Cicale Chevron B26. While Tony Cicale may not be that well known this side of the Atlantic, he is a legendary race and championship winning engineer held in high regard in the U.S.A..
Derek Bennett, founder of Chevron Cars Ltd. was a brilliant engineer who started to build race cars in the late 50ies in a shop in North England where he quickly developed a name for himself. He could develop a brand new car in a remarkably short time but he rarely found that a fresh design was really necessary. This was certainly the case in the middle of the 1973 season when the latest Chevron B23 was no match for the Lolas and Osellas. So, Bennett decided that a clean sheet design was needed to regain competitiveness. Shortly after he was found testing the brand new Chevron B26.
What set the B26 apart from its predecessors was the aluminium monocoque. Previous Chevron sports racers had used a reinforced spaceframe design that was first used in the B6 of 1967. The new monocoque type chassis of the B26 offered similar rigidity but weighed less. Just as on the earlier cars a separate front subframe was used for ease of maintenance or replacement in case of accident damage. Adapted to the latest low profile tires, the front suspension was carried over from the final evolution of the B23 while the rear suspension was derived from the B25 Formula 2 single seater. In addition, the B26 benefitted from a simple wedge-shaped body and an integrated rear wing.
This B26, chassis B26/74/05, has continuous history from new with just a few, mostly long-term owners. The current owner bought the car in 2008 from the USA and, once imported into France, commissioned a full rebuild of the car which has now been completed. Everything has been gone through and a new zero-miles Richardson Ford BDG has been installed. The owner has now decided to sell the car as, due to a lack of time, he has not had the pleasure to use this beautiful and very fast Chevron B26.
Everything on the car is current (seat belts, fuel cell, etc.) and it is totally race-ready for making its re-appearance on the US historic racing scene. If to be raced in Europe, the car would only need a correct B26 tail and FIA HTP papers.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a no-stories Chevron B26 with excellent provenance and in fresh, race-ready condition !More...
We are pleased to offer this gorgeous Abarth Osella PA1 chassis 08 for sale. The car has continuous history from new and is in excellent condition.
It was bought by the current owner in 2011 who had a complete rebuild done and a new, correct 2.0 Abarth engine fitted (instead of the FVC it had). The nose section was strengthened in honeycomb aluminium to provide additional protection. Despite this extensive work, the car has only been used once at the Barcelona Masters event in 2011 where it qualified on pole but DNF-ed in the race due to a throttle linkage problem. The engine was then rebuild and has zero hours !
As the car has not been used since, it still looks as new ! All it needs to go racing again is a re-commissioning service and updating with belts, fire extinguisher, fuel cell and a new FIA HTP.
The car comes with a spare set of wheels and miscellaneous running spares.
This no-stories Abarth Osella PA1 is simply stunning and will provide its new owner with lots of enjoyment in the many historic race events it is eligible for.
We are very proud and pleased to offer this famous ex-Rob Walker racing A-type for sale. This car has only had 3 owners in the last 53 years !

After being acquired by the current owner in 2006, it has been campaigned extensively on the European historic racing scene and always received the tender, loving care such car deserves. It is in race-ready condition and needs nothing.
A3 is extremely well documented and comes with an extensive history file.
This museum quality GP Car comes with a current (2010) FIA HTP, a spare engine block, wheel moulds and running spares.
While mechanically very sound, A3 is extremely original and ready to continue showing its pedigree and good looks at events such as Goodwood and/or the Monaco Historic GP.More...

We have the pleasure to offer for sale the ex-Riccardo Patrese 1980 Arrows A3 chassis #3.
In chassis #3 Riccardo did the entire 1980 and 1981 F1 seasons and achieved the best ever race results for the Arrows team including (amongst others) 2nd overall at the 1980 US West GP, fastest lap at the Monaco GP and pole position at the 1981 Long Beach Grand Prix. During the 1980 season, A3/3 ran in its well known and fabulous looking gold Warsteiner livery (with Penthouse and Rizla as additional sponsors) while – for the 1981 season – a sponsorship deal was struck with Italian Ceramiche Ragno and Utili Beta of Milan.
When Arrows moved on to the A4 design for the 1982 season, they sold three of the A3s to wheeler-dealer John harper and retained Patrese's car #3 for display at the factory. When Arrows was sold, the A3 passed into the ownership of Jackie Oliver and was driven up the hill by Oliver at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 1994. It then passed to Tony O'Neill who sold it to Paul Southgate but the Arrows was never raced during their successive ownership and remained completely original. After Southgate died in June 2008 the car was sold via Duncan Hamilton & Co to Philip Hall in November 2009 who sold it to the current owner in 2012.
Being race prepared and looked after by WDK Motorsport, A3/3 is in excellent, race ready condition with a freshly rebuild engine and with a good spares package. After having run in the 2014 FIA World Championship Grand Prix Masters , this stunning and iconic Warsteiner Arrows is ready for the 2015 season !More...
