The De Tomaso Mangusta, a design masterpiece penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro while working at Ghia, is one of the most stunning cars built in that wonderful era of the mid to late 1960’s. Standing just 43 inches / 1,10 meters tall, the Mangusta is the epitome of exotic. The Mangusta, which is Italian for Mongoose, was so named after the animal capable of killing Cobras. One of the most gorgeous shaped to ever grace four wheels, the De Tomaso Mangusta is impossibly rare and after almost 45 years, still stunningly seductive. The cars came equipped with a ZF five-speed transmission, Campagnolo cast-magnesium wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, independent suspension, rack and pinion steering, power windows, Ferrero wood and leather steering wheel, and the very exciting gullwing doors that cover the engine and trunk.

In total only 401 Mangustas were built between 1967 and 1971 and only about 150 were the European spec cars with the smaller but more powerful engine (289 cu V8 / 305bhp against the 302 cu V8 / 221bhp US spec cars). Of the two design variants available (4 fixed headlights against 2 pop-up headlights) the 4 headlights version is the much more desirable.

The car on offer is of the most sought after European spec 289 cu / 4 headlights type, exquisitely restored to original specification. The Mangusta is presented in Red with a Black leather interior, and is a left-hand drive car that was sold new to a Mr Norman Dube of Nova Scotia, Canada. In April 2002, the car headed to the sunnier climes of California.

Within a couple of months of landing the car, it was decided that it would benefit from a full restoration and so entrusted vintage & historic racing specialists, TSR Enterprises, Inc. of Sonoma California, to carry out a complete overhaul of the car. The history file contains extensive bills exceeding $70,000 from the aforementioned restorer detailing all works undertaken. A must-have feature on any car in California is air-conditioning and this too was fitted at the time of restoration.

After a decade of enjoyment from the Mangusta, the second keeper sold the car in August 2012, to the would-be purchaser, a British businessman, who resided in Sai Kung, Hong Kong. He exported the Mangusta to the UK in June 2013 and registered the car ‘HHY 59G‘. In early 2014 the car was sent to well-known specialist Simon Furlonger for a full service and MoT, whilst also attending to a few minor niggles that were remedied easily enough. At the end of that year, 8MA820 was acquired by the VOLANTE Collection to highlight the exhibition at the opening season of the VOLANTE Museum in 2015.

Since then, the Mangusta only was taken out for short rides, just to move the mechanical parts. No German road registration, but the car can be test driven with dealer plates at any time. With the odometer now reading 34,800 miles, the Mangusta represents a masterpiece in design flair combined with brute engine power.

This example is most likely one of the best-preserved Mangustas in existence and as such presents a special opportunity for any collector of Italian Supercars.

Maserati’s Khamsin was the last of a long and noble line of front-engined supercars cars from the trident-sporting marque, one that included such automotive legends as the 3500 GT, Mistral and Ghibli. Less overtly exotic than its contemporary Modenese rivals, Maseratis appealed to an altogether more sophisticated clientele, who appreciated the finer things in life. Named after an Egyptian desert wind, the Khamsin was unveiled as a successor to the mighty Ghibli at the Paris Salon in 1972. With modern, square-cut styling by Bertone’s legendary designer Marcello Gandini, the newest Trident featured a fashionable wedge-shaped profile and some quirky details, including a unique glass panel set between the tail lights and asymmetric bonnet vent. The Khamsin employed Maserati’s venerable quad-cam V8, extracting 320 horses from its 4.9-litres, fed by four Weber 42 DCNF6 carburettors and driving the rear wheels via a ZF five-speed transmission (a Borg-Warner automatic remained an option for all markets). The Khamsin also benefited from Maserati’s new relationship with parent company Citroën, incorporating a hydraulic system that included speed-variable power steering, along with the clutch and dual circuit brakes. The rest of the Khamsin’s specification was largely conventional – for a 1970s Italian exotic at any rate – with ventilated disc brakes all ’round, rack and pinion steering and independent suspension (doing away with the Ghibli’s much-criticised live rear axle), with wishbones, coil springs and anti-roll bars at both ends. The Khamsin’s cabin was beautifully appointed in the finest Maserati tradition, with sumptuous hand-stitched leather upholstery, full instrumentation and even occasional rear seats, albeit with extremely limited legroom. Although contemporary claims of a top speed in excess of 280km/h may have been slightly exaggerated, there is no doubting the Khamsin’s performance, with Motor magazine recording a 0-60mph time of 6.6 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 14.7 seconds. When production finally commenced in 1974, the fuel crisis – coupled with a massive list price – saw cars trickle off the production line, with just 64 delivered in the first year and a total of just 430 examples built by the time production came to a halt eight years later. The Khamsin was described by the respected American journal Road & Track as “an ego trip on wheels, but… it’s a trip most enthusiasts wouldn’t mind taking”, while Autocar conducted a test of an auto and concluded “… it tries to provide Porsche practicality with Italian style and glamour and it succeeds in no small measure.”

AM120*US1142* was sold new via the US west coast distributor Maserati Automobiles California Inc. in 1977. One of exactly 100 US 5 speed versions, it was originally Giallo fly (fly yellow), one of only seven Khamsins in that spectacular shade, all of them US models. Little is known of its early history however what is certain is that it received the T-Top modification when new. In fact the factory’s long time historian Ermanno Cozza confirmed that the West coast distributor submitted a request for official approval of the conversion but since the factory required an inspection of the car in Modena to approve it the idea went no further. The modification was carried out in California by an independent shop just prior to the car’s delivery to its first owner. It was very well executed and allows the two very light panels to be removed or refitted in moments. The quality of the work is excellent, the panels (provided by Hurst Hatches) are in fact in tinted glass. The first owner also had the car repainted black before delivery and enjoyed the T-Top Khamsin in sunny southern California where it must have turned many heads. He then sold the car In the late 1980’s to the Fine Car Store near San Diego. There it was spotted and bought by the well-known Dutch collector Paul Koot in October 1989 with only 16.197 miles and in excellent absolutely rust free condition. Upon its importation to Holland the car received a European bumper conversion with new old stock parts. After a few years of limited use Paul Koot sold it to another noted Dutch Maserati collector, Doctor George Lipperts who travelled fairly extensively with it including to the 90th anniversary of Maserati in 2004.

In June 2010 it was bought by the Maserati Club of Holland President, Mr. Bart van der Weiden, after a diligent quest which involved inspecting no less than 27 Khamsins. He had been struck by how absolutely rust free and well preserved this car was along with its uniqueness as a T-Top allowing Berlinetta practicality but full enjoyment of open air driving.

An engineer and perfectionist who works on his own cars he constantly saw to it being in perfect condition and performed an engine out head gasket change noting that the internals were in very good condition. He changed the belts and most of the hydraulic hoses and changed the mile counter to kilometres at a time when it had just over 30,000 miles. It now has less than 50,000 kms. The steering wheel was also replaced with a correct European model version. The black leather seats and beige carpets are very well preserved and thanks to excellent maintenance it is on the button ready to be enjoyed for spirited drives or for continental tours as one of the finest, most efficient, fast and comfortable grand tourers of all time.

According to Marc Sonnery founder of the Maserati Khamsin registry in 2004 and author of the definitive work on Khamsins (Maserati the Citroën years 1968-1975): ‚Apart from the Khamsin spyder it is well known and recognized in classic Maserati circles as the only open top Khamsin. It is one of the best Khamsins I have ever inspected in terms of condition and a ride with its owner in 2011 showed how enjoyable and practical it is.‘

When the T-Top Khamsin appeared to the open market in 2015 at Bonhams’ Retromobile Paris sale at the Grand Palais, the VOLANTE Collection took the chance to acquire this unique Maserati. Since then, the car was road driven only twice a year, just to keep all mechanical parts working. In the VOLANTE Museum, the open Khamsin was one of the visitors’ favorites.

After many years in the shadow the Khamsin has now been recognized by collectors as one of the most brilliantly competent and thrilling cars to drive of its era, indeed they were far ahead of their time.

Not road registered. Ready for test-driving on dealer plates at any time.

The Lotus Esprit is a sports car that was built by Lotus Cars at their Hethel factory in the United Kingdom between 1976 and 2004. In 1996, Lotus launched the Esprit V8. The car received Lotus‘ own Type 918 V8 engine, which was an all‐aluminum 90° DOHC 4 valves per cylinder with a flat‐plane crankshaft and twin Garrett AiResearch T25/60 turbochargers. The transaxle used was the same Renault unit as before but upgraded by Lotus racing driver Derek Bell with a much thicker single piece input shaft. Despite having a modified transaxle, the Type 918 engine was detuned from a potential 373 kW (507 PS; 500 hp) to 261 kW (355 PS; 350 hp) at 6500 rpm and 400 Nm (295 lb/ft) of torque at 4250 rpm to prevent gearbox damage. In period tests, acceleration from 0–60 mph was achieved in 4.4 seconds and top speeds of over 282 km/h (175 mph) were achieved. After a 28‐year production run, less than 11,000 Esprits were produced.

The V8 350 Sport (price when new: EUR 110,000) is the most extreme version of the Esprit ever to reach the market. Developed from the already awesomely rapid V8 road car but encapsulating much of the brake, suspension and handling technology gleaned from two decades of GT competition experience. This car is designed for the Esprit owner who wants the ultimate Esprit.

Just 42 V8 350 Sports were made, each offering 350 horsepower. Various engine, chassis and braking improvements, including AP Racing brakes, stiffer springs and a revised ECU. Several visual changes were also made, notably the addition of a large carbon fibre rear wing on aluminum uprights in place of the standard fibre glass one. By this time the Esprit could reach 60 mph (100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds as well as reaching 0‐100 mph in less than 10 seconds, and weighed 1,300 kg (2,866 lb) as a result of many modifications. The 350 also has 1 piece OZ racing magnesium light weight alloy wheels with Michelin contact sports tyres fitted all round, adjustable seats with lumber support, air conditioning, removeable composite roof panel, use of carbon fibre including the carbon fibre 115 GT1 rear wing mentioned above, Kelsy hayes 430 abs module and Momo steering wheel.

This stunning Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo 350 Sport is an original UK supplied car and is no.28 of 42 produced, first registered in April, 2000. Finished in Metallic Silver with contrasting Black and Blue Alcantara Sport 350 Interior, having travelled just 24,000 miles from new this car benefits from a Full Service history, last serviced at 23,000 miles, with a new clutch fitted in November 2013.

After the VOLANTE Collection acquired this rare car in 2014, the headlamps were upgraded for continental traffic (which can easily be reset). Since then, the car was road driven only twice a year, just to keep all mechanical parts working.

This super rare Esprit is accompanied with the Lotus Certificate of Provenance, the original key fobs, handbook and wallet pack with original period Alpine music system and CD changer.

Being in fabulous condition, this car represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a piece of iconic Lotus History.
