Make: Porsche
Name: 911 2.5 S/T
Year: 1972

We are very pleased to offer this exceptional and famous 1972 Porsche 911 2.5 S/T for sale on behalf of its current owner.

(For our German clients : a detailed German history PDF-document can be downloaded below of which the following history is a translated summary)

This car – with VIN-Nr 911 230 1081 (we will refer to it as #1081) – was delivered by the factory as a Gulf Orange Porsche 911S with “T” race-specification to Max Moritz on 27 March 1973 for delivery to fur trader and racer Claus Utz from Reutlingen.

The “T” race spec was comprised of light-weight body, thin glass, alu trunk lid, sport seats, 5 speed gearbox, front spoiler and anti-roll bars to which Claus Utz then added in his purchase order an 80 liter fuel tank, special speedometer (up to 300km),  special rev counter (up to 10,000 rpm) and  a limited slip differential. The engine number was 6321607 and gearbox nr was 326765. Claus Utz paid for the car with some cash and his old 911S plus a Volkswagen.

After taking delivery of his car, Utz entered the car with much success in the 1972 Group 4 championship with the high-point being the overall win in both the “Nürburgring 36 Hours” race on 14-16/7/1972 as well as the “Hockenheim Grand Prix” on 20/8/1972 !  

Already on January 2nd 1974 Utz sold his winning car to his tax advisor and rally driver Hermann Peter Duge. As the car remained in Reutlingen, the registration plate of RT-AW211 remained unchanged. Duge repainted the car in Grand Prix white and gave the car a “2.8 RSR” look with rear spoiler and blue Carrera side lettering. He kept #1081 for 2 years , put the original engine aside and installed a 2.7 RS engine and participated in 13 German rallies achieving 3 wins and a 4th place in the 1975 German Rally Championship.

The high point in #1081’s career took place during the ownership of 34 year old rally driver Ludwig Kuhn from Bergzabern (Germany) who bought the car from Duge in October 1975 registered it on its soon-to-be famous plates “GER-LK 81”.  

After having won his 1st “Badener rally” with his new car he then took 2nd in the “Coal & Steel” rally and ended the season with a 4th OA in the Hunsrückrally. In 1976 Kuhn took part in 9 German Rally Championship events and, despite finishing 6th in the final classification,  he achieved 5 wins. For the 1977 rally season, #1081 was painted in Conda-green and received sponsorship of “MASSA” and “MATER”. The German championship consisted of 9 rallies and Ludwig Kuhn with co-driver Klaus Hopfe became the 1977 German Rally Champions beating 3 works teams ! Having achieved his ambitions, Kuhn subsequently sold #1081 – still original and without any accident damage – together with all original parts to the brothers Jene, owners of the Karl Vetter firm in Phillipsburg.

The Jene brothers registered the car with “KA-Y 3113” plates and entered #1081 in several rallies during 1978 and 1979 – again achieving multiple wins – after which they retired the car and only used it sparingly as a “911 SC” in Group B until 1983. In 1985 #1081 was sold to renown Porsche & engine specialist Manfred Rugen who rebuild the engine and restored the car back to its original “Group 4 works S/T” specification. When done, Rugen then sold the car to German collector Chris Stahl and the 1st appearance of the restored and stunning Gulf Orange S/T #1081 took place on November 8th 2003 when Walter Röhrl and Christian Geistdörffer drove it in the international Köln Ahrweiler Rally. In a star-studded field Röhrl won the first 7 special stages with a 57 second lead until he had to abandon due to an accident. When asked for his impressions about the car, Röhrl answered “Impressive !!”.

#1081 was sold to its current owner in 2006 who has used the car sparingly so as to preserve its excellent, restored condition. The car is very well documented including its original Fahrzeugbrief, old FIA HTP (2004), various magazine articles, lots of period “action” pictures and comes with detailed race- and rally history compiled by historian Ulrich Trispel comprising no less than 65 races and rallies.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a famous and original 911 2.5 S/T with stellar German race- and rally history which is ready to be shown again and enjoyed by its next lucky owner!

Make: Porsche
Name: Cayenne S Transsyberia
Year: 2007

We are delighted to offer this rare and ex-Team Iberica 2007 Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia for sale.

A pair of series-built Porsche Cayennes that were further modified by the customers who purchased them drove to victory in the 10,000km-long Transsyberia Rally in 2006. Spurred on by the success shown by those two cars, Porsche built 26 Cayenne S Transsyberia SUVs, all of which competed in the 2007 rally. The full range of Porsche's techno-enhancements are in place, including Porsche Traction Management (PTM), Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDDC), and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). The PTM system is further enhanced by a transverse lock from the optional Off-road Technology Package available to regular customers, and the PDCC system is already set up with a Special Off-road Mode, which, when active, lets the Cayenne ford bodies of water up to 30" deep. A roof-mounted snorkel keeps that water from invading the intake manifold. 

The 4.8L V8 makes 385 horsepower and is connected to a six-speed Tiptronic S with a 4.11 final drive ratio.

Rally car-specific modifications include:

  • Reinforced A and B pillars
  • Bolted-in safety cage
  • Stronger underbody protection
  • Installation of a handbrake in lieu of the standard, foot-operated parking brake

  • Passenger-operated navigation computer
  • Lightweight sport exhaust
  • Offroad tires
  • Roof lights
  • Front-mounted winch
  • Stripped interior, with dual spare wheels & tires, shovels and two reserve fuel cannisters in place of the rear seat

It should be noted that while the car's passenger compartment has been pared down to the essentials, it isn't exactly spartan, as evidenced by its leather seats. Orange fabric door latch pulls, and diamond-plate steel flooring are also fitted. Outside, the Cayennes are finished in black or silver, and trimmed in a contrasting orange.

This specific car with ID LA32207 is one of the 26 Weissach built Cayenne Transsyberia in Silver Metallic and has been registered in Spain on May 10th 2007 with registration “5965-FPG”. It has participated in the Transsyberia Rally of 2007 and 2008 each time finishing in the top 5 with its best result being 2nd in 2008.  

2007 - 5.  Pau Soler/Laia Peinado, Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia -- Rally Nr 32 -- 1:19.21.80 hrs

2008 - 2. Soler/Peinado Team Spain Porsche – Rally Nr 6 -- 2:15.25 hrs behind 

The car is in excellent, almost as-new cosmetic and mechanical condition with only 18634 km on the counter. All original auxiliary Transsyberia rally equipment is in the car including the car cover. It comes with a special “Transsyberia book”, Porsche Certificate of Originality and Spanish Technical Inspection Document.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very limited series built Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia with very low mileage and in excellent condition throughout!

Make: Lola
Name: T296
Year: 1977

We are delighted to offer for sale the 1977 “Ultramar” works car with excellent history and few owners from new. 

Lola T296 chassis HU87 was fitted with a 2-litre BDX engine (the 1st experimental version of the becoming BDG engine) and was the official 1977 factory car run under the Ultramar-Rizla Team Lola banner. It was driven by Chris Craft, Ray Mallock and Guy Edwards in the 1977 World Championship for Makes.

This works T296 still carries its original tub and original gearbox!

Only 4 owners from new: at the end of the 1977 season, HU87 was sold by the Lola factory to its European Lola agent Heini Mader after which it spent the next 20 years in the Rosso Bianco Museum in Germany. It was bought from the museum by US dealer Steve Tillack who sold the car to its current, UK owner in 2008.

HU87 then received a full rebuild including a new, Connaught Competition Engines Ltd. 2.0 litre Cosworth BDG engine and – when finished – competed very successfully in Peter Auto’s CER race championship as well as participating in the 2010 and 2012 Le Mans Classic where it won the Team event.

The car was subsequently retired from racing and – as such – it needs a refresh (fuel cell, engine, go-through, belts & fire system) estimated at a conservative GBP 25k to put it back in race ready condition.

HU87 already benefits from a new, 2019 FIA HTP and comes with good spares as follows: 1 nose, 1 tail (big & old) , 2 sets of spare wheels and gear-ratio’s

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a works Lola T296 with impeccable history and with its original tub and gearbox. After its refresh, this stunning, “Ultramar” T296 will be a welcome and competitive entry for the CER2 championship, HSR and/or SVRA races and – last but not least – Le Mans Classic 2020.

Make: Cooper
Name: T39 Bobtail
Year: 1955

Postwar England struggled with crippling shortages but privation often leads to adaptation, innovation and revolution. John and Charles Cooper followed that path to success, building up Cooper Cars into one of the most accomplished and revered motorsport enterprises. In the process, utilizing Owen Maddock’s innovative 1954 chassis design, Cooper Cars forged a new revolution in sportscar racing with the Cooper T39 “Bobtail” of 1955-1956.

The initial T39 was powered by a Coventry Climax FeatherWeightAutomotive (FWA) 1100cc four cylinder engine nestled within a tubular chassis. The lack of purpose-built racing parts forced Cooper to adapt components from various sources, but innovation is clearly shown in the driver’s center seating and in the aluminium alloy body’s truncated rear, fashioned by Maddock to optimize aerodynamics. Hence the nickname of “Manx Tail’ or “Bobtail”. Total production is unknown but fewer than 15 are thought to exist today.

When born, this rare 1955 Cooper T39 “Bobtail” was equipped with a 1098ccm Climax FWA Engine number FWA-4 which indicates that this was the very 1st engine delivered by Coventry Climax to John Cooper (the first 2 engines went to Kieft and the 3rd engine went to Lotus) and – as such – indicates that this car was a work’s car (unfortunately there is no remaining Cooper chassis number registration prior to 1957).

There is no firm evidence for the car’s early (1st five years) race history but - given its very early engine nr - there is indication to believe that this was the Cooper T39 driven by Ivor Bueb during the 1955 season, its 1st race being the Easter Monday International Race at Goodwood where Bueb finished an impressive 3rd. At the following race, the International Meeting at Silverstone on 7-5-1955, Ivor Bueb won both the 1100cc and 1500cc class (finishing in front of all 2 litre cars)!

A Cooper T39 “Bobtail” was then entered by the Cooper works for the 1956 Le Mans 24hr race. This Le Mans car received certain modifications to the chassis. Later in 1956 Roy Salvadori, driving a Cooper T39, wins a race in Oporto, Portugal. This may well be a coincidence, but it is interesting to note that the first formal history document of chassis CS-II-1-55  is a Portuguese “Libretto” (Road registration) dated August 8th, 1960 in which the engine is listed as “FWA-4” and the car is listed as “Cooper experimental 1956”. The car’s original chassis (which is separate but comes with the car) clearly shows various in-period modifications (Le Mans 1956?). Interesting to note is that – in addition to the “libretto” - the car also carries a chassis plate issued by the Portuguese Historic Automobile Club.

In 1960 this Bobtail is registered in Portugal by Joao Azevedo and has remained in the hands of the Azevedo family for a very long time : until 1997. In the 60’s the car has been entered regularly in races in Spain and Portugal and, apparently, it has also been raced in Angola for some time. Unfortunately the quality of the period drivers and the limited size of the engine have prevented it to achieve very notable results.

A broken rear suspension and some chassis damage (possibly resulting from an accident in the mid 70’s) relegated it to a place in the back of the Azevedo garage.

In 1998, the car was discovered and bought by John Harper (UK) who commissioned a full rebuild by renown Croswaithe & Gardiner during 2000 and 2001. The rebuild included the replacement of the chassis (the original chassis is with the car), the engine was replaced with a 1495cc Climax FWB engine (from Sid Hool) and the brakes were also uprated to FWB spec .

After its rebuild in 2001, this stunning T39 “Bobtail” was bought by the current owner and has been a welcomed participant on the European historic racing scene including various LeMans Classic event, Goodwood Revival, etc. where it has always been a class podium finisher beating the larger capacity cars due to its light weight (400kg) and wonderful handling. (As an interesting anecdote : nearly 50 years after Savadori’s 1956 Oporto race win, the car won the 50ies sports car race at the 2005 Oporto Historic Grand Prix.)

This rare and genuine Cooper T39 “Bobtail” is completely race-ready with a refreshed engine which has only 10 hours on it. It also comes with a current 2016 FIA HTP (valid till 31/12/2026) and is located in Antwerp, Belgium where an inspection is welcomed subject to appointment.
