2007 207mph Ultima GTR. £40k

Always thought that these are great cars, like a “poor” (all things are relative…) mans Maclaren F1. They look great, like a Le Mans racer with the cabin forward design, have ridiculously wide rear ends and rear tyres, all the body work flips up on them like a real race car and they can be had for reasonable money. Tubular space frame chassis, mid engined, usually using American V8s and Porsche gearboxes. They can be self built or supplied complete from the factory and can be specified based on budget.  This looks like a great option at a good price…..  Link

Year 2007 Ultima GTR
Engine: 383 Small Block Chevy; dyno’d at 519 bhp;  was set up on the rolling road to cure low revs flat spot and to check fuelling and ignition was correct.
The car starts and runs from cold without any issues.  I have also fitted an Accusump oil system and this is the biggest accumulator and is controlled electronically by engine oil pressure, this is known to be the best/quickest way to control oil being expelled into the engine and for the accumulator to refill.
Gearbox: Porsche G50 complete with long fifth gears, giving better fuel economy on a run and higher top speed.  The gearbox is also fitted with factory ZF LSD.
Brakes: these are the big AP kit all around and Intrax shocks front and back.
Interior: is minimalist with alcantera on the dash and seats complete with 6 point harnesses and lumber support on both driver and passenger seats.  The car is also fitted with air conditioning which works extremely well.  I have also fitted the latest MSD digital ignition system and just given the engine an oil and filter change.
Basically the first owner went to the factory for a test drive and had this car built as per the demonstrator.  Whilst in my ownership it has not wanted for anything and I have not scrimped on any part of servicing or looking after it.  When I had the tall fifth gears fitted I also got the independent Porsche specialist to strip and check that all was good and within tolerance with the rest of the internals of the gearbox – in for a penny in for a pound.  The car has always been warmed up before being driven fast and “warmed down” before being put back into the toy box!  I have owned this car for 4 1/2 years and my reason for selling is that I fancy a change.  All of my friends think I am daft selling it – it has ticked all of the boxes.  It gets good reactions/attention where ever I take it and I have also cracked the double ton in it – 207 per the GPS to be exact.
Please do not hesitate to contact me and ask for more details or if you have any questions.
Just as an aside the car comes with indoor car cover, trickle charger and it’s interesting number plate.

2014 700bhp Brabus G-Wagen. £217k

A Dubai favourite and a little ridiculous, but who wouldn’t like to try 700bhp in a 4×4 initially released in civilian form in 1979? Based on the base of a G63, you’ll need a few quid to buy and fuel it. Middle Eastern royals and pop stars only need apply. Link

1997 Bentley Turbo R. £14k

Unbelievably you can get one of these old beasts now from £5k! I’m sure at this price level that they will need some fettling and a bit of money spending (especially on fuel…) but that is amazing value, shirley.  This is an entirely different prospect, low miles at under 80k, mint body and great interior. You’ll need a big garage.  Linky

Here we have a beautiful Bentley Turbo R LWB in Stunning Silver with Diamond Blue Silver/Magnolia Hide with blue piping, carpets and top roll. 

Registered March 1997, MOT February 2015, Taxed to end of May 2014. The car has covered 74850 miles from new and has been chauffeur driven for the past two years, being mainly used as a wedding car. 

The car comes with full service history and was fitted with new discs and pads for the previous MOT at 73556 miles. This is one of the last cars in this model line from Bentley prior to the Arnage being built in the Crewe factory at the start of 1978.

The car drives beautifully and has been stored in a heated garage when not in use, as so with the previous owner.

1992 Chevy Tahoe Monster Truck. £6k

Who wouldn’t want to own one of these trucks? The problem is where do you keep them, how do they handle and really, how practical are these things?…..if you can ignore these two questions (or own a farm) then this could be for you.   Linky

Up for sale is our Chevy Tahoe truck. Owned for the last 7 years. For sale as my dad’s passed away. 100,00kms on the clock. 5.7litre v8 petrol engine.

It’s been sat for the last 4 years not doing a lot. We did get it Mot’d last year with the intention of selling it but didn’t particularly want to part with it at the time.
Thus it has no mot or tax. 
It will need some tlc due to standing. It has a bit of a wheel wobble at 30mph. You can accelerate through this but obviously it wants to be addressed. Maybe tracking, maybe the tyres from sitting who knows. They are big tyres after all..
Any questions just email or call 01344 778686 (home) or 07939 752178 (mobile) 
Great truck which I’d like to see get used and enjoyed as it looks ridiculous.
May consider a swap for a tractor or digger. 
If you could call when making an offer that would be useful so I know it’s genuine. 
 
Some more info..
I put it needs tlc to cover myself. It just needs the wheel wobble sorted then it’s ready for someone to enjoy. 
It did start to run a bit rough at the begininning of the year when I went to move it and it stalled. 
Basically it was just old fuel. Whilst i was at it I changed the spark plugs, fuel filter, the ht leads, distributor cap, rotor arm and cleaned out the carb. It also had a new radiator when we first bought it. It’s in good proportion being the short wheel base model, the pictures don’t do it justice. 
I’m open to offers, so let me know what you’re willing to pay. I’ve put on there what I’d like to see it make. 
It’s also had a new battery. 

1980 E21 with V8 4.4l M62 Engine. £10k

Lovely track biased BMW, I was lucky enough to have a (shagged out) E21 as my first car, £850 it cost me….and as a result I am quite fond of them. This one will be a lot more fun and much faster than my little old 316. Full, weld in roll cage, brake bias and LSD makes this a serious tool.  Linky
