At Slade's Garage, we're used to all sorts of exotic sports cars passing through our hands and with over a hundred cars on our books it's sometimes hard to pick out the highlights. So here are three very different examples of the automotive beauties we can provide from our showroom in the Chilterns.
Jaguar E-TypeS1 Roadster 4.2
Constantly voted one of the most beautiful cars ever, this gorgeous 1964 Series 1 convertible E-Type was originally supplied to a customer in Oregon and was brought back to the UK in 2013 for right-hand drive conversions and a complete restoration inside and out.
Resplendent in black, both exterior and interior, it's all original with matching numbers. Drive an icon for £154,950.
Austin Mini 850
A British motoring icon of a different type, the original Mini revolutionised small car design with its transverse engine front-wheel-drive layout. This 1962 example was restored five years ago and comes with a complete photographic record of the work done.
It's in green with a white roof and cream interior with contrasting piping. A great classic to own as it's eminently practical and still capable of keeping up with today's traffic and tastes. With 26,000 miles on the clock, it's on sale at just £14,950.
Audi R8V10 Plus Quattro Selection 24h
Another completely different car, Audi's incredible R8 V10 is constantly underrated. Powerful, smooth and easy to control, as well as being blisteringly fast and secure on the tarmac, this one is also very rare.
Number 17 of only 24 built, the Selection 24h was created to celebrate 323 endurance race wins by the R8 LMS (the racing version) since 2009. The car is fitted with similar carbon fibre diffuser, front bumper and engine cover to those on the race car, and it has a paint finish unique to the Selection 24h. An excellent, distinctive and unusual investment at £197,950.
