Defender, Range Rover and Jaguar stunt cars from No Time To Die are among lots being auctioned to mark 60 years of James Bond films.

Two Defenders and a Range Rover Sport SVR will be offered, led by a Defender 110 (estimate: £300,000-£500,000) famed for its all-terrain stunt scenes in No Time To Die. Its sale will benefit the British Red Cross. The auction lot has the unique VIN (vehicle identification number) 007. One of 10 Defenders used during filming, it was also used in promotional activity ahead of the film’s release.

A Defender 110 V8 Bond Edition, created by SV Bespoke and inspired by the specification of the Defenders in No Time To Die, also goes under the hammer (estimate: £200,000-£300,000). Just 300 Bond Editions were available worldwide and this version has a unique ‘60 Years of Bond’ logo etched on the instrument panel end cap. This vehicle is UK specification, is fully road legal and will be sold to benefit conservation charity Tusk

The Range Rover Sport SVR stunt car (estimate: £80,000-£120,000) also starred in a high-speed all-terrain No Time To Die chase and was one of six supplied for filming.

Chosen by the No Time To Die stunt team as a perfect chase car, a Jaguar XF (estimate: £50,000 – £70,000) is one of two that appeared in the film’s pre-credit sequence. They pursued James Bond (Daniel Craig) and Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) through the narrow, twisting streets of Matera in southern Italy.

Nick Collins, Executive Director Vehicle Programmes, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “Defender, Range Rover and Jaguar were in the thick of the action in No Time To Die. Each car represents a unique piece of James Bond history which we’re sure collectors will be keen to own and we are delighted to be able  to support our charity partners through their sale. With such high demand for the Defender V8 Bond Edition, we are also hoping this special one-off version with the 60 years of Bond logo will attract a keen buyer.”

The official two-part charity sale, Sixty Years of James Bond, features 60 lots in total. The online sale will be open for bidding from 15 September until James Bond Day on 5 October presenting 35 lots spanning the twenty-five films with posters, props, costumes, memorabilia and experiences.  The Defender, Range Rover and Jaguar stunt cars are among the 25 lots at the live auction to be held by Christie’s and EON Productions in London on 28 September by invitation only.

Vuhl you look at this: Car & Classic’s hot Mexican

Vuhl you look at this: Car & Classic’s hot Mexican

  • Only one in the UK
  • VUHL Certificate of Authentication, Edition One, Car #1 
  • Debuted at 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed
  • 725kg two-seater sports car
  • Auction starts on 22 July

Talks about heat at Car & Classic are, predictably, of a different nature from the average national news: coming to the leading online classic and specialist vehicle marketplace’s auction site is a two-seater road-legal track car, the Vuhl 05.

Weighing just 725kg, the all-aluminium monocoque and carbon fibre hot Mexican was built by brothers Guillermo and Iker Echeverria and is the only one of its kind in the UK. It was driven by F1 pilot Esteban Gutierrez (whose autograph can be seen on the car’s dashboard) up The Hill at Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2013, the year it was built.

The 05 uses Ford’s 2.0-litre turbocharged EcoBoost engine and six-speed manual gearbox. Because of its light weight, 0-60mph is an impressive 3.5sec and top speed is more than 150mph.

Factory upgrades in 2017 added a not inconspicuous rear spoiler, ECU work to free up 310hp (up from 285 bhp) and a set of 17-inch gloss black OZ wheels shod with Toyo Proxes R888R cut slicks.

“In a country where track days are popular, our circuits are awash with the usual suspects, but if you want to stand out, and at the same time enjoy a racing motorbike feel on four wheels, the Vuhl is the car for you,” says Car & Classic Head of Editorial Chris Pollitt.

Authentication and dealer’s Sale & Fit record of the car’s tracking system (monitored by Tracker Network UK) back up a well-maintained car with only 8,000 thoroughly enjoyed miles on the clock.

Find another like it: GTO Engineering offers one-off Fantuzzi-bodied Ferrari 250 for sale

Leading and respected Ferrari specialist and broker GTO Engineering is confirmed to be responsible for the sale of one of the rarest Ferrari 250s in the world.

The 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso bodied by Fantuzzi is unexampled, being the 16th 250 GT Lusso ever made, then having a period coachbuilt Fantuzzi body added. It is now available for sale from GTO Engineering’s UK HQ.

Displayed around the world, including the most intimate and publicised Concours events, tours and road rallies, this one-of-one 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso bodied by Fantuzzi has been cared for by GTO Engineering for over a decade. Its history is well-documented, being originally finished in Grigio Metallizzato from the factory, and supplied new to Luciano Pederzani of Bologna, who, with his brother Gianfranco owned Tecno, a builder of Formula F2 and F3 cars. At their request when the car was still relatively new it had extensive work carried out and was partially re-bodied in around 1965 by Medardo Fantuzzi, who was designing the bodies for their Tecno race cars. Fantuzzi created a one-off treatment with a more aerodynamic front end and faired in headlamps.

The previous owner spent over three years and a lot of effort documenting the actual history of this model, including a trip to Italy to meet with the original owner Gianfranco Pederzani and a visit to the Ferrari factory. He has personally met with, or spoken to, most of the people who have owned this car, to gain first-hand, reliable information.

Its illustrious history starts in 1966 when the Pederzani brothers sold the car to Venezuela, however by the summer of 1968 this special Ferrari had moved to New York and was owned by Richard Trask. In around 1977 Terry Kramer purchased the car, and it is believed it was at that time that some further modifications were made (possibly by Tom Meade) including a more pronounced boot lid spoiler and some 250 GTO-inspired vents in the wings and on the nose. Soon after this the car was shipped to Honolulu where it was registered. The car went through Collier Thelian’s hands in 1978 and was sold to Gerald O’Conner in 1979, who put the car in storage in 1981 where it would remain for the next 24 years.

In the Autumn of 2011, the 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso bodied by Fantuzzi went to DK Engineering for a full restoration. It was decided to embark upon a concours restoration and as such the car was stripped to a bare chassis and body. Moulds, drawings, and diagrams were made from a genuine Ferrari 250 GTO and precisely scaled to Lusso size for the various louvres and vents. The car was primed and painted in Rosso Corsa. It returned from paint at the beginning of November 2012, at which point the mechanical rebuild was commenced.

After its time with DK Engineering, the car was transferred to GTO Engineering to be its final mechanical and storage caretaker, who has overseen its servicing and maintenance for nearly a decade (late 2012 to present). Throughout that time, the owner and teams at GTO Engineering ensure that the car remains ‘on the button’ servicing, moving, caring for the car as if it was GTO Engineering’s own. During this time there are significant service and invoicing records for works, including an owner-specified ‘touring themed’ upgrade of seat belts, luggage straps, mirrors to sit alongside its Brantz machine.

Today, this special Ferrari is offered for sale with price on application. Leading the sale is Louis Scott, who was appointed earlier this year in a senior sales role, with significant hypercar trading background with Koenigsegg’s UK distributor, and prior to that with Ferrari itself.
