Very rare MK1 Australian Cooper S in the highly desirable colour combination of Burgundy over Snow white (this combination also often done over Toga White). This was a complete barn find in 2010 - as posted on MK1-forum.net, and unfortunately we do not know what has happened to this car since.

The car appears to be highly original, other than the flares (which should technically only be applied to MK2 cars). Under 5000 MK1 Cooper S Australian cars were produced, and of course even fewwr would be around today. Complete barn finds like this are now very hard to come by.

This is a rare mini 998 LS. The 998 LS was introduced as the successor to the mini S and SS, and was considered a top spec model. The 998 LS in some ways was more equipped than the 1275 LS, with items such as grille mounted foglights standard (whilst these features were optional on the 1275 LS.

If you’re from outside of the US or Canada, you would be forgiven for not even knowing that the Merkur brand existed. A subsidiary of the Ford Motor Company at the time, the marque was very short lived, offering cars from 1985 to 1989, before shutting its doors. During that period, the company only offered a couple of models, one being the XR4Ti. This XR4Ti is one of just over 42,000 cars produced for the North American market, but represents a far more interesting car than first meets the eye.

Rare Green Iridium 998 LS Mini. Believed to be one of around 15 cars in this colour sold as a test case prior to the release of the 1275LS.

The early Celicas have a big following globally, and the RA28 is one of our favourites, colloquially known as the “mini Mustang” due to its styling similarities. This one here is currently for sale on Ebay Australia, with hours to run (but reserve not met). See it here.

We’ve finally spotted another rare DR30 Skyline. Again, it’s in the desirable form of the “RS-X Turbo C” coupe. Very few of these come up for sale in markets outside of Japan, and as a result, we’re betting that these cars will continue to attract collector interest as a rare early alternative to the more populous later models, hence our production of an ID-guide for the RS-X which you can see by clicking here.

This 'tii' represents a very clean example of BMWs early fuel injected 2002 series, available here on Ebay USA, with little time to run. The 2002 series is now highly collectable, and particularly so in 'tii' form.

As the first of the Mach 1 Mustangs, the 1969 model year has to be our favourite, and represents an impressive effort put forward by Ford in the performance war of that era. This particular Mach 1 is presently for sale on Ebay USA with reserve not met, and bids just over $7,000 USD - find it here.  This represents a fantastic project for someone seeking a strong connection to the original Mustang shape, with the increased muscular aggressio

This is an extremely rare 'Dark Blue Pearl' R32 GTR. What makes it even more unique is that it's a V-Spec. With only around 1400 V-Spec cars made, and an ultra-minority of those in blue, this car is one of the most rare V-Specs you will find.

This R32 V-Spec II was for sale in 2015 / 16 in London, UK. The car appears immaculate, and has a few additional options, like drivers knee pads, Nismo body kit (front vents and srear spoiler lip). This car was asking GBP 26,995 at the time of sale. You don't see them in such good condition this often, and we hope the car has ended up in a serious collectors hands, who will maintain it for what it is rather than engage in modifications.
