We’ve trawled through the site and picked out an eclectic selection of gems.

1985 PORSCHE 962 LE MANS RACER

IF YOU are looking for a trackday car and you have a spare $2.5 million burning a hole in your pocket, here’s one for you.

This example spent most of its life racing in Japan where, in the hands of drivers Kuni and Kenji Takahashi, it won the 1985 and 1986 Japanese Sportscar Manufacturers Championship It was also victorious in the 1000km 1987 Suzuka 1000km event before it made its way to the USA where it competed in SCCA Historic Events.

In 2004 it was sold to an individual in Wycombe, UK where it remained until 2014 when a German enthusiast purchased it. It is presented in its original and most successful livery.

1973 BOND BUG

AND NOW for something completely different. A Scotsman from Aberdeenshire is selling his 1973 Bond Bug.

An ungainly three-wheeler that has a top speed of 76mph (122km/h). Yikes!

The brainchild of Tom Karen based on the notion that three-wheelers didn’t have to mimic a four wheel car, this 1973 Bond Bug has 79,000 miles on the clock. One thing for sure, you’ll certainly get noticed.

1981 DELOREAN DMC-12

BACK TO the Future with this very clean DeLorean.

John DeLorean left his job at General Motors to set up DeLorean Motor Company in 1973.

Almost a decade later his DeLorean DMC 12 finally hit the market. By then the US economy was in recession and the car received lukewarm reviews. By February 1982, more than half of the roughly 7,000 DMC-12s produced remained unsold and the company was placed into receivership with debts of a $175 million.

This 1981 model in grey, with an auto trans mated to the 2.8-litre V6 has just 9,500 miles on it and is in very original and unmodified condition.

Due to their rarity and the company owner’s notoriety, DeLoreans are looking at a brighter future than the company did in the early 1980s.
