We found this Tyre Placard in the glovebox of one of our Esprit V8 Twin Turbo's
This decal that was placed in the car when new, says it all, and that was BEFORE we added the "missing" 226 bhp that the engine was designed with, prior to Lotus de-tuning it to keep the transmission together. Now, with the "proper" power output of over 500 bhp, we will let you're imagination do the work in determining what these cars are like to experience. The last timed check from 0-100 km/hr was 2.67 seconds, which is due in part to very little weight.
A Ferrari 250 GTO that requires it's original gearbox !.
As we all know, the 250 GTO is one of the most valuable and most beautiful of all Collectible Cars, although this one seems to have not arrived with it's original 1962 gearbox, and the purchaser is not happy !. The case has gone all the way to the U.K. High Court.
Even though this car is the lower powered U.S.A. option, Petrolicious still loved this excellent car.
It would seem that the writer found this car to be superior to many other cars of it's time, as well as right up to the present day.
Whilst most of our Range Rovers are Suffix A's (worth 35% more than a Suffix C or D), this great example is still a great restoration.
As Range Rover Classic's head towards $500,000 for a Suffix A, our restoration work continues, with all of the many, many examples that we purchased 18-20 months ago for almost nothing.

Just as spectator numbers are beginning to exceed those of F1, the red team are out
Due to a rather lack-lustre season as well as their main talent departing for Toyota, we are left with 3 teams and 7 cars for 2020.

This great Supra is available for US$499,999. The previous SOLD benchmark was $246,000 earlier this year.
No wonder we purchased so many Supra TT's 18-22 months ago for very little, and then shipped some of them........
This Quiksilver Supra is totally original in every way with reasonably low mileage, just as they should be for maximum appreciation.
Sometimes it is great to reflect upon the great things achieved across time.
As we all know, the correct Collectible Cars always gain massively in value, and so whilst this news article is not from 2019, it serves to remind us why we do what we do, by picking all the winners from the crowd.
Back in July, 2018, great 840 Ci's similar to this car were changing hands for an average of £12,800.
Naturally, we were involved with some of these great car back in 2018, as we only back winners. It is great to see yet another "chosen one" race up the charts.
As more and more people discover the magnificent virtues of Lotus's, prices continue to rise.
When will the rise stop though ?.
Call to find out.
The challenge of creating a car with incredible handling, looks, brakes and performance for a reasonable price evaded almost all car manufacturers.
That said, there were five (5) manufacturers that were able to achieve this feat, although only one that did it with style, by combining F1 Race winning concepts.
We are now up to AU$156 for 2 years driving in one of our Esprit's. So much for what "the experts" would have had us believe.
This article was writtn by an amateur writer in the Hagerty Insurance competition.
The Group B Rally era was arguably the most exciting period for Rallying...............until now. The 2018 and 2019 cars have drawn crowds back to the forests that are now larger than F1. This is the story of one of the four cars from the previous era.
The next, and more significant value drop in Australian Property....... Massive interest only loan reset
As we predicted WAY BACK in 2016 in our News section (July the 15th), again in later 2016, in 2017, July the 23rd, 2018 and November the 27th, 2018), Australian property was in for a correction.
Well, we were absolutely right yet again.
The question is, are you aware of what will cause the next, and larger part of the crash in property values ?.
It may be time to start thinking in an a different way !!.
What an amazing story this is..........
A Father and Son that really understand what it is to be an Innovator. They too are Innovators, and so is the facility that their collection is housed within.
There are another 7 cars that have risen by an average of 521% over the same period.
Can you guess what they are ?.
