Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (2004)
Over € 57.500,- invested in maintenance
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is a masterpiece. A good wine that took some years to mature to perfection. Mercedes-Benz presented the Vision SLR in 1999. In order to turn the concept car into a usable car, the project was transferred to McLaren, of which Mercedes-Benz was a shareholder at the time. More specifically, the project ended up with Mr Gordon Murray, spiritual father of the sublime McLaren F1.
The Vision SLR was at odds with everything Murray stands for. The packaging of the car was not good, the design was difficult and the proportions made it difficult to achieve the predetermined goals. A long period began for Murray, flying to Stuttgart every week to meet with people from Mercedes-Benz to convince them of how the car should be developed. The final result of those long negotiations is here before you in the form of the Mercdes-Benz SLR McLaren.
Lancia Aurelia B50 Cabriolet (1951)
Body by Pininfarina, only 265 made, FIVA Pass
What a timeless beauty the Pininfarina styled Lancia Aurelia B50 Convertible still is. This example was first admitted to traffic in 1951. The car still looks beautiful. The good looks are largely due to a thorough restoration in which the entire technique was immediately overhauled. Since then, the car has been very well maintained and is still in excellent condition.
The car first came to the Netherlands over 20 years ago. The base was very solid but had lost some of its original shine after 50 years. It was decided to completely disassemble the car and restore it completely. After the body was stripped, repairs were carried out where necessary and the car was completely repainted in its original colour. The paint was very well sprayed at the time and is still in a neat, well-maintained condition with only some light traces of use. The convertible top has also been completely reupholstered, and the top frame has also been repainted. The hood is still in very good condition and fits perfectly everywhere. The chrome on the bumpers and the body was also addressed at the time and still looks beautiful.
Jaguar Mark V Drophead Coupé (1951)
Stunning car, beautifully restored and revised, well documented
When reading the history pages about the Jaguar Mark V, the Jaguar enthusiast becomes a bit melancholy. What a leading and innovative brand Jaguar was. The Jaguar Mark V was a car with which Jaguar showed a lot of things for the first time. This model was the first Jaguar with, among other things: sealed headlights, integrated turn signals, the possibility to order both a left-hand drive and a right-hand-drive version of the same model, independent front suspension, hydraulic brakes and “spats” (the screens over the rear wheels).
The Jaguar Mark V was introduced at the same time as the XK120 at the 1948 London Motor Show. The Mark V was a much bigger sales success than the XK120. Jaguar sold 5,000 Mark Vs a year against 2,000 XK120s. In this case, the Mark V is equipped with a fully overhauled 3.5-litre valve tappet six-in-line. The engine produces 125 horsepower and is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Jaguar built a total of 10,499 Mark Vs of which only 577 were delivered as left-hand drive Drophead Coupé.
Porsche 911SC Cabriolet (1983)
Only 20.603 miles and two owners from new, full service history
The Pacific Coast Highway, it is a warm summer’s evening on the 7th July 1983. Mr Tomaselli has just driven his new Porsche 911 SC Convertible off the local Porsche dealership’s forecourt and is enjoying his immaculately furbished open 911. The “Indisch Rot” finish is complimented with a black hood and black leather upholstery on the inside. Forged Fuchs rims complete the picture. Tomaselli only used the car on special occasions which has led to the mileometer only showing 20,608 miles to date. He sold the car in August of 2016 and then Gallery Aaldering in turn sold it to its only Dutch owner.
Since 1983 this car has only has two owners. It therefore follows this must be a matching numbers and colour car. It comes fully documented with its service history, including the nearly € 11,000 spent in maintenance whilst in Holland.
Peugeot 404 Convertible (1968)
Great condition, lovely colours, new soft top
People who do not know the history of Peugeot think that Peugeot mainly make very simple and solid middle class cars that offer a lot of value for money and are often equipped with a small engine with low emissions to keep the addition low. If such a person is confronted with a beautiful Peugeot 404 convertible, such as the one shown here, then even the biggest car hater must wonder what went wrong with Peugeot? Let us also immediately state that Pininfarina has delivered an absolute masterpiece with this design. Yet it is hard to imagine that this concerns the same manufacturer that approved the first generation Peugeot 3008.
In this case it is not only a beautiful design but also a super copy. This Peugeot 404 convertible was recently restored and has only 20,988 kilometers on the clock.
BMW E9 3.0 CSi (1973)
Fully restored, Dutch delivered car, one owner for 40 years
May 17, 1973, must have been a very special day for the first owner of this carefully composed “Taiga Grün” BMW E9 3.0 CSi. The car was delivered new in the Netherlands and has been in the possession of the last owner for no less than 40 years. This BMW has been fully restored in the recent past and is still in very good condition.
The body has been completely reduced to bare metal and repaired where necessary. The car was then completely repainted in its original colour. The work was carried out very well at the time and the general condition of the car can therefore only be described as very good. The body still looks beautiful with nice thin sheet metal and neat fits. The chrome work and the wheels are also in good condition.
Ford Mustang Fastback GT (1966)
Performance engine, nice clean example
Gallery Aaldering has a very fine 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback available. The car has already been fully restored in the past and remains in good condition. The car was also fitted with a 289Cu engine and automatic transmission.
The bodywork is very neat. The car has a stunning “Raven Black” finish. During the restoration, the whole interior was reupholstered. The car sports a red “Deluxe” interior trim. The car is both inside and externally in good shape. There are extra gauges on the dashboard.
This Mustang had all its mechanical bits fully attended to during the restoration. The car was fitted with the aforementioned “HiPo” 289 (4.7 L) V8 engine. Brakes and suspension were also adjusted to take this new power plant. The 289 produces 275 Ps at 6,000 rpm and 423 Nm at 3,400 rpm. The automatic is a 3-speed affair. Even in todays figures this Mustang with this kind of power plant under the hood is a fast car. A 275 Ps engine in a 1,100 kg car makes locomotion simply a feast!
Citroën DS20 (1971)
Lovely colour combination, recently revised engine, only two owners from new, full service history
This is a beautiful 1971 Citroën DS20 Pallas. The car was ordered new by the first owner from the Citroën, Autobianchi and Maserati dealer in La Chapelle St. Luc. The car is beautifully documented and has had only two owners. The maintenance history tells us that the DS20 has only driven 120,675 kilometers. Not only that, with a mileage of 118602 the engine has been overhauled. This DS20 is therefore not only in beautiful optical condition, but also technically as fit as a fiddle.
The DS20 has always been ridden with love and very thoroughly maintained. The first owner owned the car from 1971 to 1998 and then sold the car to the second owner who owned it from 1998 to 2021. It is immediately apparent from the car that it has been exceptionally well cared for. The car has obviously always been kept in a heated garage and still looks great.
