Elegant, authentic, reliably
Alvis was founded in Coventry in 1919. From the beginning they produced modern sport cars, solid as a rock and with fantastic engines. The “Silver Eagle” with the famous 6 cylinder engine came in the end of the 20s. This engine was developed constantly.
Our Alvis Tourer is a late example. The 2.5 litre engine with three carburettors has a lot of power. The open tourer is equipped with stronger brakes and the gorgeous Speed Twenty transmission. This family racer is ready to use and can be driven on almost all historic events. It is easy to handle and very fast – so to all Bentleys: “Watch out.”

After World War I the demand for larger cars, especially the ones with chauffeur, declined rapidly. So Henry Royce felt compelled to develop a smaller model, the “Twenty” which was introduced in 1922. Its outstanding performance for its size (100 km/h were possible!) made the Twenty very popular with its owners. The next version of this model was the 20/25 HP which was in production between 1929 and 1936. With 3,9827 cars the small Rolls-Royce was a big success.
The body of our Rolls-Royce 20/25 HP is an All-Weather Convertible from T.H. Gill & Son Ltd. It is a particularly high end and one of a kind car. Its gorgeous Art Deco mounts in sterling silver are remarkable. Its first owner was a Mr. Ferguson. The vintage car ist “matching”. It enjoyed a complete restoration by Bowling-Ryan Ltd. In Kearsley near Manchester. Today this classic is registered in Germany.

Shortly before the war Bentley presented the MK V and it became the basis for the MK VI which was introduced in 1946. This was the first time one could order a complete car from Bentley! But they also still sold many chassis for customized designs.
Our Bentley MK VI Cabriolet was built in 1949 and was tuned as a “Drophead Coupe (DHC)” by the body shop Park Ward. Its roof is electric. The first owner was A.J. Brown in England and in 1977 this magnificent convertible was sold to the US. In 1986, it was purchased by a passionate collector, a musician with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. At that time, the Bentley was restored and no expense spared. It was its owner’s wish for this classic convertible to return to England. Starting in 2007, this rare oldtimer was been driving under the British flag again but is now German owned and registered in Germany and ready to find a new home!

Since 1946 there was a new Bentley on the market based on engines that had been developed in 1938. The body design was based on the Bentley MK V, which was only sold in small numbers due tp the war. Another novelty was the standard steel body.
Our Bentley MK VI by James Young was characterized as a “Fixed Head Coupé de Luxe”. Its first owner, Mr Percy Cecil Henderson, a business owner from Essex bought the exclusive Coupé from car merchant Jack Barclay in London. The historic English documents list five owners. Since 1966 the Oldtimer was in the Netherlands and is now in German hands. Years ago this very rare car was completely overhauled. The Bentley runs very well, and although the opulent interior shows some wear and tear, it is still in good condition. Its weakest feature is the paint which has been considered when we priced the car and we would be happy to offer the Coupe with a new coat a paint. James Young’s signature features like elegant design and superior wood craftsmanship are very visible in this special classic car!

In the end of the twenties Bentley was very successful with the types 4 1/2 and 6 1/2 ltr. The Bentley 8 litre with 220 hp was developed for the even higher supreme luxury segment. But then the Great Depression came and a small Bentley was needed. That is why the already produced 8 litre chassis (construction Ricardo) were fitted with the 4 litre engines. So the 4 ltr was born. 50 cars were sold until Rolls Royce took over Bentley.
Our Bentley is the no. 22 of 50 with the 8 litre chassis. It was equipped with the 4 litre engine, when it left the factory. For some people, the 4 liter engine had not enough power for the heavy chassis. Same happened to this Bentley so the stronger 6 1/2 litre engine was installed. It fits perfect to this gorgeous and sporty open tourer. The engine has been completely overhauled by a well known German workshop. This Bentley is one of the most impressive classic cars. Try and you will see.

Paul Daimler was passionate about technology even as a child. The challenges his dad, Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach had with the management of the Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG), inspired Paul Daimer to join Austro Daimler in Austria. He became Technical Manager and General Manager but in the end still became Wilhelm Maybach’s successor at DMG. The model 15/20 PS was the smallest and most modern Mercedes of its time. Its engine had hanging and standing valves as well cardan transmission and its inspection intervals of 4,000 kilometers were revolutionary.
Our Mercedes 15/20 PS was delivered by Daimler Ltd. in London. We do not know what type of body was on the chassis but the wheelbase suggests a “Tonneau”. This veteran car was discovered, fully restored, 20 years ago in Great Britain and it is great fun to drive because it is so light. Steering is direct and the transmission easy to handle and the brakes can handle speed up to 50 km/h. But you should avoid driving it at maximum speed (90 km/h)!

It is not a well-known fact that two Germans, Siegfried Bettmann and Mauritz Johann Schulte founded the New Triumph Cycle Co. Ltd. In 1887 in Coventry. They made their first car in 1923, at the time named the Type 10/20. In the 1930s, Triumph made a name for itself with well-equipped, sporty mid-range cars. It competed with the Jaguar SS on an equal footing.
Our Triumph Vitesse Tourer was delivered as a limousine to Eltes & Fox Biscuits in Banscough. The second owner drove it in the city of Derby. After the war, the Vitesse was supposed to become a sports car. After a long search today’s touring body was found and built up in the 70s. In 1999 the sporty classic car came to Germany and has been registered here since 2003. It’s a pleasure to drive on country roads with this agile touring car! Between 80 and 100 km / h this 80 year old classic does very well. The original engine was replaced by a more powerful contemporary engine.

Since 1906, the Lagonda company was registered as an automotive manufacturer. The founder, Wilbur Gunn, an opera singer of American origin, just tried his luck as an automotive producer in his new English home. The M45, from which the LG 45 was born (with a little help from W.O. Bentley), was very successful. Powerful, reliable and solid. It was significantly easier to drive than a Bentley, but quite a bit taller than the Bentleys of the Rolls-Royce era.
Our Lagonda LG 45 is an early vehicle of the series. It still carries the convertible body that it had ex works. The car has matching numbers and is registered in Germany. An appraisal confirmed the older restoration, which is still in good condition, as grade 2-. This convertible can be used on longe trips over several days. You will sit comfortably and safely.
