1962 ALFA ROMEO GIULIA SPIDER / €55000

History

The evolution of cars in the early sixties led Alfa Romeo to increase the capacity and performance of the Giulietta Spider. 

The Giulia 1600 Spider “series 101.23” was born in 1962 from the evolution of the Giulietta Spider “series 101.03”. 

The cars are almost identical from the aesthetic point of view, except for the existence of a false air intake on the hood of the Giulia needed to house the new engine and the word “1600” on the tail of the one -this. 

There are other differences in the interiors, more specifically in the characteristics of the steering wheel, now in three races and in the design of the instruments, except in the first examples in which they were identical to those of the preceding model.

It is equipped with a four-cylinder front and a longitudinal line of 1570 cc displacement. 

The maximum power delivered by the engine was 92 hp at 6200 rpm for the “normal” version, while it reached 112 hp at 6500 rpm for the “Fast” version. 

The “Normal” version was equipped with a Solex carburetor and a 32 PAIA 5 model. 

While for the “Veloce” version, there were two carburetors. 

It is equipped with a five-speed synchronized manual gearbox. 

The first 5,600 cars had drum brakes on all four wheels. 

In 1963, disc brakes will be added to the front. 

Its maximum speed reached is 172 km / h.

The Veloce version was introduced in 1964; it had two dual-body carburettors that had power at 112 hp at 6,500 rpm and a top speed of over 180 km / h.

In total, 8850 copies will be produced from 1962 to 1965

1981 ALPINE A310 V6 / 19900 €

History

The mission of the A310 was to conquer new customers that found the A110 berlinette too spartan. 

Indeed, the A310 has a much higher comfort, as well as two small rear seats that allow it to take the qualifier of 2 + 2. 

Since the stopping of the A110 GT4 in 1967 (descendants of the A 108 2 + 2), it no longer existed in the four-seater coupe range. 

By taking the exact wheelbase of its predecessors, 2.27  m , it finds itself in direct confrontation with the Porsche 911. 

However, the qualities of road (for a GT) and finish of the German make the duel turn disadvantage for the French.

With the arrival of the V6 engine, everything will change: engine from the R30 V6 2.7  L , new interior, new suspensions, a box 4 and from 1979, a 5-speed gearbox.

She finally had a power more in relation with the competition, Porsche 911, Ligier JS. 

In addition, as early as 1980, the car will benefit from additional assets such as a new front axle and modified rear suspensions, which come directly from the R5 Turbo as well as “turbine” the wheels type and brakes.

The Ad

The ad that caught our attention is this 1981 Alpine A310 so among the best years showing 93561km. 

The car was serviced for the sale, it is equipped with a set of Gotti rims.

It is sold with a valid “Contrôle Technique”, it seems to be in original shape.

However, it will be necessary to think about checking the appearance of the seats as well as the chassis.

Its price: € 19 900

2000 JAGUAR XKR 4.0L COUPE /8000 €

History

The Jaguar XK8 is a GT coupe released in 1996, also available in a convertible version, as well as an engine equipped with an Eaton compressor (XKR) which has a ZF gearbox. 

The first generation of Jaguar XK8 shares its platform, partially derived from the Jaguar XJS, with the Aston Martin DB7. The original design is by Geoff Lawson, succeeded by Ian Callum, for the next two generations of Jaguar XK. 

The feline silhouette of the XK, despite two major evolutions in 2002 and 2006, remains unchanged. Precious wood and  leather are very present, although some unpleasant plastics have appeared, and that there are versions favoring aluminum and carbon. Similarly, the convertible top is made of triple insulation fabric and not metal. The Jaguar XKR is the supercharged version of the XK8, produced from 1998.

The Ad

The ad that caught our attention is this Jaguar XKR 4.0l V8 Coupé 375 CH put into circulation in 2000 and displaying 152 000 km. 

It is equipped with many options, the body looks in good condition, But
– Two tires must be changed 
– The skylight needs refection 
– The vehicle seems to pose a problem ignition (candles and / or one reels to change) 
– The DVD of the GPS is absent (easy to find but still obsolete, Jaguar has never followed updates as soon as the model change)

However, the seller offers a mechanical guarantee (engine / Box / Bridge). 

As the weak point of the first Jaguar V8, it will be necessary to check if the chain tensioners were changed for third generations, in case of an evasive answer, it will be necessary to foresee the operation as soon as possible.

Its price: € 8 000

1989 JAGUAR XJS 3.6L /€13500

History

The  Jaguar XJ-S  (then  Jaguar XJS ) – (XJ27) is a luxurious GT produced between 1975 and 1996.

The XJ-S replaced the Type E in September 1975, based on the platform of the shortened XJ sedan.

Appearing in the midst of the oil crisis, and criticized for its design, the XJ-S has struggled to find a place in the market. Especially, that this one was very little favorable to the big-tourist sports

But the XJ-S and its greedy V12 are expensive, too expensive, almost 40% more expensive than a Type E and almost 15% more expensive than a Porsche 911 or a Mercedes 500 SL roadster! 

A newly designed six-cylinder in-line for the future XJ40 was then installed in place of the V12 in 1983, significantly reducing the price. 

Raised to 221 horses thanks to four valves per cylinder, it is judged by the specialists a little fair for the 1600 kg of the car. 

But everything is relative because the AJ6 engine is very voluntary and amazing flexibility and its flights provide a pleasant sound. 

However, it has never had a sporting vocation as evidenced by the lack of lateral support of the upholstery, the very little direct direction and hard and slow box control.

It is made to swallow asphalt on motorways at a sustained rate between 160 and 180 km / h (in Germany, therefore), in the coolness of the air conditioning and the quality of the stereo. 

This new offer will save the model whose sales have never stopped falling, despite Jaguar’s efforts to improve the V12 version.

The Ad

The ad that caught our attention is therefore this Jaguar XJ-S 6 cylinder 3.6l put into circulation November 2, 1989 in very good condition at a very reasonable price certainly justified by its high mileage (242,850 km).

This is the third owner who drives regularly with. 

In addition to the price, what is interesting is that it does not present any mechanical leak as can be seen in two pictures, that there does not seem to be any corrosion and that its owner presents for €3000 of recent invoices including the services, the renovation of the leathers, the heating radiator and the tires. 

The 3.6 is a reliable engine, less greedy than the V12, less fragile than the 4.0l and this car is properly maintained, we can consider that at around 5000 € below the market, this vehicle seems to be a a really nice opportunity.

Its price: € 13 500

1994 VENTURI TRANSCUP 260 / €79000

Historic

The Transcups are the cabriolets of the car manufacturer Venturi. They are characterized by a hard roof in two parts that can convert the car into coupe, targa or cabriolet. These two parts fit under the front bonnet. Five engines are available, from 160 to 260 horses. 

The first appearance of the Transcup Venturi was at the Paris Motor Show of 1988 after a new deficit year for the brand. However, its production really begins in 1990. This elegant and ingenious model is designed by Gerard Godfroy who managed to create a convertible in a rear mid-engined vehicle. It is essentially based on the 200 Coupé. The production of the model stops in 1995 with the disappearance of Transcup 210 and 260. 

The Venturi Transcup 260, equipped with a 260hp engine was produced in 17 copies.

The Ad

The ad that caught our attention is this beautiful Venturi 260 Transcup red Kirsh with a leather interior biscuit with the woodwork on the doors option, put into circulation December 27, 1994, copy number 14 on only 17 Venturi Transcup 260 manufactured displaying 39,000 km on the counter. 

The vehicle has a complete history, a large file of bills, it is in exceptional condition, ready to take the road. 

It has undergone a major restoration in 2018 with more than 30 000 euros in bills (body, chassis, upholstery, rims, tires, engine, etc.).

We had already evoked the Venturi Transcup 180 ( https://www.larevuedannonces.com/venturi-transcup-180-de-1990-40000e/ ), same model with a less powerful engine and therefore cheaper. 

This one is very desirable, a real sports car worthy of the Venturi brand.

Its price: 79 000 €

1989 PORSCHE 944 2,7L PHASE 2 /€1700

History

After being announced in June 1981, the 944 was presented in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It is produced from November 1981, and marketed at the end of the same year.

The front-engined Porsches were planned to modernize the aging image of the famous  911  and ensure a more balanced road handling thanks to a better weight distribution. 

Externally, it inherits the lines of its predecessor 924, released five years earlier, while showing a more sporty style. It comes from the drawings of Anatole Lapine, Latvian designer also responsible for the 928.

The Ad

The Ad that caught our attention is this 944, which was first put into circulation in 1989, so it would seem to be a 2,7l phase 2. 

According to its owner there are “a few things to redo, body is intact, front Porsches rear seats, original wheels. ” 

The body appears to be actually in good condition although it is in the grass so remember to check the bases. The driver’s seat does seem to be in good shape however, we have no picture of the dashboard. 

It is likely that it does not start, the seller specifies although it is sold “as is” and without any “contrôle technique”. The seller has another engine if necessary that could be included in the deal.

In any case, it will be necessary to change the timing belt and check the cooling system. 

A car that begins to become scarce, which seems complete with work but at a small price, to note that the owner sells another 650 € ( https://www.leboncoin.fr/equipement_auto/1638732998.htm/  ) with more work !

Its price: € 1 700
