  • Presented in Rosso Corsa over Tan leather. An outstanding example of a rare and sought after model. The Ferrari Boxer was never made for the American market. Enzo figures his 8 cylinder cars like the 308 would suffice because at the time the US had a 55mph speed limit. This particular example has been both restored and thoughtfully upgraded in our service center by Wade, who is our outstanding certified master Ferrari technician, to be more road friendly.
  • A true 30+ year barn find. One of only 809 examples produced. The 365 GT 2+2 was presented at the Paris Salon in 1967, and it was the biggest and most luxurious Ferrari model to date, conveying forward the developing interest for faster vehicles with convenience for up to four travelers. Its low-thrown fastback configuration was made and built by Pininfarina
  • One of only 170 produced for the U.S. market. Finished in Argento Nurburgring over Beige and Daytona-style seats. Uniquely optioned with the desirable “Fiorano” Handling Package. It combines the stunning Ferrari 12-cylinder berlinetta performance with an extremely original, groundbreaking take on the ever-versatile convertible. It is also the first car in production to implement an advanced rotating roof incorporating electrochromic technology developed solely for large glass surfaces, this transforms it from a coupé to a convertible in only a few seconds. 
  • Equipped with rear-wheel-drive, has a five-speed manual transmission, and boasts the legendary 4.9 flat 12-cylinder mid-mounted engine, capable of producing 380 horsepower and topping out around 180mph. The Testarossa’s design is daring and distinct, most easily identified by its ultra-wide rear fascia and massive side strakes. The Testarossa made its debut at the Paris Auto Show in 1984 and stole the show. 
  • The Ferrari Testarossa’s bodywork shows exotic and muscular features, with a mid-mounted 180-degree 4.9-liter engine with Bosch K-Jetronic electronic fuel injection and four valves per cylinder supplying 390 hp, making the Testarossa the world`s most powerful sports car at the time. It produced a blistering performance and was the fastest production car when released. With acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just over 5.0 seconds, the 1/4 mile in just 12.9 seconds, and a top speed of nearly 180 mph. Production ran for 11 years and ended in 1995.
  • The Testarossa was introduced in 1984 at the Paris Auto Show. It addressed some of the design flaws inherent in the BB 512i one of which is the uncomfortably hot cabin.  This problem was traced to the indoor piping that connects the rear-located engine to the radiator located at the front of the car. To address this, two radiators were built near the engine on each side of the car thus eliminating the need for cabin-routed piping. However, the radiator intakes on the sides were covered with strakes also called “cheese graters” in conformation to design regulations. 
  • The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (C199 / R199 / Z199) is a grand tourer co-developed by German car maker Mercedes-Benz and British car maker McLaren Automotive and was sold from 2003 to 2009. When the car was developed, Mercedes-Benz owned 40% of the McLaren Group and the car was manufactured jointly by the two companies. SLR stands for “Sport Leicht Rennsport” (Sport Light Racing) and is a homage to the Mercedes-Benz 300SLR which served as the car`s inspiration. The car was offered in coupe, roadster, and speedster body styles, the latter being a limited edition.
  • This 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG with only 5k miles has a stunning Iridium silver finish over Sand beige designo leather. This used model’s 6.3L V8 engine produces 563 horsepower, 479 lb-ft of torque, and can climb from 0-60 in under four seconds, and with its aluminum frame and body, the Mercedes SLS proves to have both power and agility.

  • As a final-year example, this 328 benefits from all the updates incorporated over the model run such as ABS brakes and revised suspension geometry. Finished in the striking color of Blu Chiaro Metallic (Light Blue Metallic) over a beige leather interior, the car appears exceptionally well-kept and showed less than 11,206 miles at the time of cataloging. In 2010, this 328 was awarded Ferrari Classiche Certification and is being sold with the corresponding Red Book.
  • This R8 was first owned by Juan Pablo Montoya, a two-time Indy 500 and Formula One Monaco Grand Prix winner. It was also the first car ever to be auctioned by Broad Arrow Auctions at the Monterey Jet Center.
  • In 1968, shortly after Citroën took a controlling interest in Maserati, the concept of a mid-engine two-seat sports car was introduced in order to stay competitive with Lamborghini and Ferrari. Dubbed the Bora, this new model debuted in March of 1971 at the Geneva Auto Salon. Coachwork was provided by Italdesign’s Giorgetto to create the Bora’s sleek “wedge-style. Its robust V-8 engine—first displacing 4.7 liters and later enlarged to 4.9 liters—acquire from Maserati’s Birdcage Tipo 63–65 race cars. Reportedly only 275 4.9-liter examples of the Maserati Bora were produced. This 1975 Maserati Bora has numbers-matching engine, confirmed by Maserati Classiche Accompanied by manuals and factory documentation. 
  • Finished in Rosso Corsa red over Black leather interior.  Ferrari returned to Pininfarina for the 308’s styling, and this two-seat, mid-engine coupe sat on a chassis with a wheelbase that was eight inches shorter than the GT4 upon which it was based.
  • This rare 308 GTB example is finished in Bianco over Nero leather and is accompanied by the complete luggage set and tool kit.

  • Based on the sophisticated mid-engine design and unique styling, makes the Acura NSX popular with sports car enthusiasts. Acura has made many styling enhancements to the 2002 NSX that give it a more modern and high-performance look. All ’02 NSXs feature a removable roof panel as standard equipment for open-air driving. Combining suspension upgrades with new headlights, these changes not only improve the look of the NSX, but also improve aerodynamics and increase its already impressive performance. 
  • When the Acura NSX debuted in the early 1990s, it was welcomed as a revolutionary car. The NSX was far more affordable than many of its competitors, but manufacturers didn’t downplay the equipment and technology used in production. This initiative had a lot of potential for success. Pininfarina’s iconic graceful design, Honda’s sophisticated engine technology, compact body, and the combination co-developed by F1 star Ariton Sena were a combination for success.
  • This iconic Rosso Corsa over tan Testarossa presents in terrific condition throughout with only 19k miles. Equipped with Ferrari’s 4.9 flat 12 cylinder that top out around 180mph and it’s naturally aspirated. The Testarossa made its debut at the Paris Auto Show in 1984 and stole the show.
  • Finished in Rosso Corsa over Beige interior, this rear-wheel-drive, five-speed manual transmission, and boasts the legendary flat 12 mid-mounted engine, capable of producing 380 horsepower. The Testarossa’s design is daring and distinct, most easily identified by its ultra-wide rear fascia and massive side strakes.
  • The 964-based Speedster was the 1994 Speedster based on the 964 Carrera 2 platform. Production of the 1994 Speedster reportedly totaled only around 936 units, less than half as many as the 1989 example. The 1989 Speedster was primarily an aesthetic package, the 964 version sought a happy medium between the regular Carrera 2 and the hardcore Carrera RS. It had the same engine as the base Carrera and didn’t have the same suspension bits as the RS, but thanks to a removable windshield and an interior stripped of all niceties, it fits the role of driver’s car rather neatly.
  • The first Porsche 911 Speedster was built in 1989 and was the last vehicle with an old 911 body. Inspired by the concept of the 911 Speedster from 1985, Porsche decided to create a production Speedster. Launched in the 1989 model, the 25th anniversary of the 911, it had the direct design attributes of a 356 Speedster, including a scooped windshield, a two-seat configuration, and a roll-away top neatly stored under the double. You can store the bubble stern cover. The car was available in a narrow or turbo wide body look, with the latter outselling the former by a huge margin.
  • This Flying Mirror Testarossa has only 6057 miles. Ferrari produced 819 globally and only 300 “Flying Mirror” cars came into the U.S. Single lug wheel. Finished in quintessential Rosso Corsa over Tan leather. Legendary 5-liter, mid-engine flat 12, mated to a manual gearbox.
  • Finished in Grigio Met. over black interior, this rear-wheel-drive, five-speed manual transmission, and boasts the legendary flat 12 mid-mounted engine, capable of producing 380 horsepower. The Testarossa’s design is daring and distinct, most easily identified by its ultra-wide rear fascia and massive side strakes.
  • This was the final production year 993 Targa. Made in the years 1993 through 1998, the 993 was the last of the air-cooled Porsches, making it a true favorite among real 911 lovers for its resembelance to the original late-60s 911. For that brief 5 year time, it was only within the final three that Porsche created its Targa variant. In the time paving the way to its reveal, Stuttgart said that it would not create such a model, yet when 1995 came around, it was right there, highlighting a convertible body with a retractable glass rooftop.
  • The “original” 911 design was coming to an end with the 1985 model year. The 964 generation would arrive at dealerships in 1988, despite the fact that the 911’s engine, interior, and exterior designs had all changed significantly over time. After Porsche was forced to add impact bumpers to the 911’s front and rear ends in 1974, as is customary, the appearance of later models is marked by a great deal of disdain.
  • Just like the original 911, the 911 50th Anniversary Edition is a rear-wheel drive, flat-six rear-engine coup. Its proficient presentation, active sport suspension and unique body have current importance: the anniversary 911 features the wider body, which is typically reserved for the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 models. This special edition is limited to 1963 cars, a number that represents the year of the 911 world premiere.
  • This beautiful red over tan 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe is equipped with the 3L TT H6 engine along with a 6-Speed Manual to ensure the true joy of driving a classic Porsche on every drive. This car has only one original owner

  • Featured in a number of award-winning films. The Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor is a four-door, body-on-frame sedan that was manufactured from 1992 to 2011 by Ford. From 1997 to 2013, the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor was the most widely used automobile for law enforcement operations in the United States, Canada, and Saudi Arabia. This vehicle sits proud watching guard over our shop. 
  • Finished in Rosso Fer 302/C over Tan. When the Ferrari 308 GTB was unveiled at the Paris Show in 1975, the Ferraristi who remained unconvinced that the Bertone-designed 308 GT4 2+2 was a true successor to the stunning Dino 246 found their prayers answered. The 308 GTB was designed by Ferrari again with Pininfarina. This two-seat, mid-engine coupe had an eight-inch shorter wheelbase than the GT4 it was based on.

This particular 308 won awards at both Platino and Coppa Maccina at FCA National Meet at Road America. Accompanying the car is a binder of service records that have been well kept since birth.
  • Ferrari’s 400i is A Spacious Grand Tourer With All The Extras For The Time. With air conditioning and electric windows being offered back at the start of the 70s and the charismatic V12 upfront – plus Pininfarina’s magic dust sprinkled on top.
  • The Malanca Testa Rossa 50 cc model used a 4 hp, two-stroke engine coupled to a four-speed gearbox, which was housed within a Daspa frame. A 20 mm carburetor helped the motorcycle reach an impressive top speed of over 90 km/h. This lovely example was purchased in 2017 by noted Miami-based collector Leo Schigiel and joined his impressive stable of Italian motorcycles and cars. Bearing frame no. 4MS6777, this Malanca appears to be very nicely restored, and displays its distinctive Testa Rossa red-painted cylinder head. Acquired this very rare small-displacement sporting bike from one of the country’s preeminent Italian motorcycle collections.

  • This incredible 124-chassis Mercedes show just over 42k miles. Finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic over Solf Blue upholstery, this may be the classiest spec out there. In 1995 when this car was new, the original MSRP was $66,050. The E320 can be described as being built like a vault but runs like a sports car. The sound system equipped is a six-speaker AM/FM stereo radio and cassette with an optional CD disc changer, installed by Mercedes-Benz. The Value Added PKG E1 adds ACC slip control and heated front seats. 
  • The Mercedes AMG G65 is effortlessly cool simply for being what it is, an old-school player in a new-school world. The G65’s powertrain is impressive, with a 621hp 6.0-L twin-turbo V12 engine. It comes with a 7-speed automatic transmission that shifts quickly and doesn’t feel clunky.  The interior of the G65, as well as the exterior, is an exercise of military-spec utilitarianism dipped in luxury. Much of the surface is covered with premium materials such as nappa leather and genuine wood, and the large grab handle on the passenger side is reminiscent of the military origin of the vehicle.
  • The Land Cruiser’s powertrain is both powerful and refined, with 381-horsepower, the 5.7-liter V-8 engine produces 401 pounds-feet of torque and paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

There’s plenty of acceleration from a stop or when passing, as well as plenty of grunt for towing or off-roading.
  • This is the First Production, road-legal Boot to be sold. The SCG Boot is a modern high-performance homage to the Steve McQueen Baja Boot. It is an all-terrain platform capable of pre-running the Baja 1000 at speed, crawling through the rocks of Hammertown, and exploring country roads.
  • Isuzu has built a strong reputation for building durable and dependable trucks with the launch of the first Elf in 1959, and while they no longer sell vehicles in the United States, they continue this tradition today in most markets across the globe. The fourth generation of Elf was launched in the summer of 1993 with new engines and refined styling. Delightfully popular across the world, this particular Elf remained in its home country of Japan, where it was outfitted as a firetruck, with many of the fittings still present today. Following its retirement from active service, the truck was sold and subsequently imported to the United States in 2022. 
  • Black over Black 840Ci with 80k miles. Recently converted to a 6-speed manual transmission. Powered by the more refined 4.4-liter M62 V8 engine, that was rated at 262 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

  • The Land Rover Defender is a line of British off-road cars and pickup trucks. It started out as the Land Rover 110 and was followed by the Land Rover 90 in 1984 and the new, longer Land Rover 127 in 1985. They were developed in the 1980s from the initial Land Rover series, which was introduced in April 1948 at the Amsterdam Motor Show. They always have four-wheel drive. The term “Land Rover” no longer functioned as the name of a specific model after the introduction of the Land Rover Discovery in 1989; instead, it became the name of a broader marque. Therefore, the Defender 90 and Defender 110 were renamed by Land Rover in 1990. The Defender 130 replaced the 127.
  • Benefiting handsomely from attentive single ownership and maintenance from authorized Land Rover dealers and marque specialists since new, this 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 features excellent British Racing Green Metallic and Slate Grey vinyl livery.
