This superb UK supplied in 1983 Ferrari has been in the same family for the last 27 years having been purchased in 1992 and passed from father to son. The father used the car until 2000 when the car was then placed in long term storage until 2018. It was at this time that they decided to recommission the car at a cost of £24,000 and now giving a great driving experience for the next owner at and estimated £50,000 to £60,000.

Our second Ferrari is the successor to the 308 we have just talked about. This is the 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS and built in the final year of its production which started in 1985. This is one of 292 UK supplied right-hand drive cars in the classic Rosso Corsa with Crema hide interior and has just 17,000 miles on the clock. The car is currently in the possession of Silverstone Auctions and is really worth seeing if you are thinking of purchasing this car and would like a private viewing.

Estimated at £75,000 to £85,000 and coming from a significant private collection this is a rare version of a low mileage classic Ferrari.

Now turning our attention to the Porsche sale which follows on from the Ferrari sale, we have some superb lots which include this 1988 Supersport Cabriolet. One of just 39 examples produced for the UK market in right-hand drive, this Guards Red Porsche with an unusual interior which was chosen from the Special Wishes Programme, Linen leather and other additions including a gold embellished gear knob and to differentiate it even further it features the front air dam and side skirts which were dealer-fitted from a 930 SE. The list of features on this car is endless, but it does feature the very desirable manual G50 gearbox which was fitted in the final three years of the car’s production. At an estimated £48,000 to £55,000 this really is an even rarer version of the Supersport Cabriolet with its Special Wishes options and the 930 SE aerodynamic kit.

Our final car in this release is the 1988 Porsche 928 S4 Sports Equipment estimated at £33,000 to £38,000. Only 42 of these cars were for the UK market and this one was purchased new by Formula One driver Tom Belso who raced for Frank Williams Racing Cars in 1973 and 1974 and owned for 24 years. The current vendor purchased the car in 2016 and began a programme of works to restore the car to its best using marque specialists and at a cost of £25,000 according to the cars history file. This is a rare car and one for any Porsche collector or enthusiast coming with an interesting provenance.

This weekend, Maserati’s spirits were high, as they showcased the past and present of V8 engine Maserati cars at the glamorous Goodwood Revival. Held at the famous racing circuit in West Sussex, the event captures the automotive world as it was from 1948 to 1966 with both competitors and spectators in period dress.

As an Automotive Partner of Goodwood Revival, Maserati once again took part in the Earl’s Court Motor Show with a display highlighting the history of the V8 Maserati cars and inspired by the marque’s classic 1960s motor show stands.

Taking pride of place on the stand was the brand new V8 Maserati Levante GTS, finished in Bianco Alpi with a nero interior. The Levante GTS perfectly embodies the Italian marque’s legendary DNA,  with a 3.8 litre V8 Twin Turbo petrol engine and developing 530 HP, the GTS features an exterior restyling focused on the lower front fascia and the rear bumper, also giving the Levante GTS a strong stance and head turning presence. The GTS was joined on stand by a stunning Quattroporte Series 1, the first series production Maserati with a V8 engine.

Over fifteen classic Maserati models, including a 6CM, 8CM, Tipo 63 along with four examples of the iconic 250F, were competing at Revival, featuring in races across the three-day event. Maserati cars took to the circuit competing in the Goodwood Trophy, Freddie March Memorial Trophy, Richmond & Gordon Trophies and Sussex Trophy. Highlights from the weekend included a third place finish and fastest lap for Richard Wilson in a Maserati 250S during the Freddie March Memorial Trophy on Sunday afternoon.

Guests of Maserati were able to experience old world glamour at the Revival, enjoying exclusive hospitality at Goodwood House on Sunday, and being chauffeur driven to and from the Revival in a fleet of Maserati Levante, Quattroporte and Ghibli models.

Rallyday will bring together some of the finest cars and drivers in the history of the World Rally Championship, with more Group B finery than ever before coming to Castle Combe on Saturday.

World champions and heroes of the sport Didier Auriol, Craig Breen, Alex Fiorio, Nicky Grist and three generations of the rallying’s most famous dynasty – the McRae family – will headline Europe’s biggest and best one-day rally show.

Auriol, who stood on top of the world in 1994, will be reunited with the Lancia Delta HF Integrale he used to win an astonishing six WRC rounds in 1992. Driving the Rally Replay-supplied car is something the Frenchman is looking forward to.

“I remember this Lancia well,” said Auriol. “It was a nice car for me. To come to England again and to meet some fans, it’s going to be a good day. And I look forward to talking to people and telling some stories from when I was driving [in the championship] and especially from RAC Rally. There were some stories from this one, for sure.”

Breen is the driver who brings this year’s Rallyday story right up to date. Ten days on from Rallyday, the Irishman will be in the thick of Hyundai Motorsport’s challenge for this year’s World Rally Championship title as he returns to a factory i20 Coupe WRC for Wales Rally GB.

As well as being one of the WRC’s brightest stars, Breen is a strong advocate of the sport’s history and heritage – which is why he’s bringing his own MG Metro 6R4 (which falls in perfectly with the 35-year celebration of the ARG supercar’s 1984 debut). In one, the Waterford driver provides the perfect solution to past and present.

“I’m really excited about Rallyday,” said Breen. “You know me, any time I get to drive the Metro is a special day and any time I get to have a good look around other rally cars, it’s an even better day. There’s going to be some great and really interesting cars there.”

British rallying history doesn’t get any richer than the McRae name. Jimmy McRae is a five-time British Rally Champion as well as an immensely popular Rallyday regular. Saturday’s not just about Jimmy, this time he brings the present and the future with Alister and Alister’s son Max making the trip from Perth, Australia to Wiltshire.

“Dad talks a lot about Rallyday and the potential for driving lots of different cars and having a lot of fun,” said Alister. ”This time Max and I have decided not to let him have all the fun – we’ll be there for some as well. It’ll be a great day and a great chance to see lots of old friends again.”

McRae Sr (Sr) will be reunited with the Rothmans MG Metro 6R4 he drove in the 1986 British Open series. He will also step back further in time to drive the Vauxhall Chevette HSR he used in 1981. As well as that, all three McRaes will step aboard a selection of the sensational BGMsport-prepared cars Colin McRae drove in his career.

Ian Gwynne’s BGMsport firm is at the heart of this year’s Rallyday, with an unprecedented 21 vehicles attending the event. And, in a real treat for fans of days gone by, three of those cars (the Chevette HSR, a Subaru Legacy RS and Ford RS1700T) will be towed to Castle Combe by the same service barge which towed them when they were competing.

Rallyday organiser Tom Davis says fans are in for a real treat on Saturday.

“As we’ve been putting this year’s event together, it’s just been getting better and better,” said Davis. “The BGMsport collection is amazing and then we’ve got some beautiful, beautiful Lancias coming from Rally Replay – including arguably the most iconic of Group B cars, the Delta S4. And that Italian theme doesn’t stop with the cars. We’re delighted to welcome Alex Fiorio to Rallyday for the first time.

“And this year we have the perfect stage for them with the introduction of the Legends Stage. In 1983, the RAC Rally came through Castle Combe and this year, we decided to recreate that stretch of road. So, for just over an hour at lunchtime, rally fans can sit on the bank in the sunshine, wind the clock back 36 years and enjoy the sights and sounds of the early Eighties on Wiltshire’s own World Rally Championship stage.

“Rallyday doesn’t get any better than that. Until next year, we have a big treat coming for 2020 and there will be more news about that on Saturday.”

- Rallyday is Europe’s premier one-day rally show, descending on Castle Combe Circuit on Saturday 21 September.

- Advanced admission tickets are available from until 5pm on Tuesday 17 September, then will be available on the gate. Accompanied under 17s go free.

As part of Citroën’s ongoing celebrations to mark its 100th anniversary, the French marque is continuing to showcase its fans from across the globe, with its ‘Citroën Generations’ series. After the first seven videos were launched last April, it’s now off to New York, New Jersey and Bry-Sur-Marne for three new episodes to watch from the Citroën Origins virtual museum.

Every 14 July for the last 20 years, American fans of Citroën have toured the roads of Manhattan at the wheel of their iconic cars: known as the Bastille Day parade. In the year of Citroën’s Centenary, this event provides the brand with a great opportunity to pay tribute to these dedicated fans from across the Atlantic by revealing new episodes of the ‘Citroën Generations’ series, originally launched in April of this year.

The first episode is filmed in New York during the Bastille Day parade. The second takes us to New Jersey to meet the Seligmann family; Howard, the father, is the man behind the annual gathering of fans on 14 July. Finally, the series finishes in France with the Lelièvre family; for four generations, the Type H has been the symbol of the Lelièvre family business.

These three new stories continue the world tour which began with the first seven episodes of the ‘Citroën Generations’ series. For its 100th anniversary, Citroën created this series in order to pay tribute to its fans who have helped to write the history of the brand: through their dedication, eclectic lifestyles and their passion which is passed down from one generation to the next.

These accounts allow the brand to proudly affirm its popularity, in every sense of the word.
The series of legacy stories give more meaning than ever to Citroën’s ‘Inspired by You’ Brand signature.

You can watch all of the episodes in the ‘Citroën Generations’ series at the Citroën Origins virtual museum:
