Read on for more on this very special collection of cars.
1991 Ferrari Testarossa
The highlight of the collection is possibly one of the finest Ferrari Testarossas available on the market.
Delivered new in 1991 by Auto Becker GmbH & Co KG, Germany, to
its first owner a Mr. Frank Laufenberg, this exceptional left-hand drive
car was never even driven by Mr Laufenberg! However, he did have the
foresight to order the exclusive Ferrari watch by Cartier, gold with
steel, which comes in its original box and warranty card. The market
value for these watches is more than 5,000 Euros and they are almost
impossible to find. Accompanying the car is a five-piece Ferrari luggage
set in black leather that fits neatly into the trunk of the car.
We are extremely proud to offer this low mileage and collectable
‘twin mirror' model for sale. Rarely do cars of this provenance come to
market, with this particular car ticking all the right boxes for any
serious collector today. We believe this to be a truly 'best of breed'
Testarossa and you'd be hard pushed to find another one on the market
This exquisite Mondial rolled off the Ferrari production line in
1992 and was sent straight to Ferrari Import Kroymans, Hilversum,
Offered in Rosso Corsa with a black leather interior, this Mondial
comes complete with leather book pack, tool roll with a full complement
of tools, a solid history file to boot and has covered just 1,180 miles
A well-documented and extremely presentable Mondial like this one
rarely comes to the fore. In the wake of recent increases in Ferrari
prices, and with the Mondial recently tipped by Quentin Willson as 'one
to watch', this is an opportunity to own a fast appreciating classic in
factory fresh condition.
One of the maddest cars of the 90s, only 998 SZs were produced in a
two year period with only 100 officially imported into the UK.
We are pleased to offer this rare Alfa Romeo SZ presented in the
only colour combination available, red with a tan leather interior. This
example is one that can only be described as new. Offered with the
original point of sale invoice, tools, leather book pack containing all
the original books, and even the overmats which are still in their
polythene bag, this car encompasses everything about a ‘time-capsule'
In all, a best of breed car that cannot be faulted and with the
odometer now showing a mere 808 km (502 miles), this car would be the
perfect addition for any astute enthusiast.
