We’ve caught wind of a fascinating tale suggesting that Niki Lauda once took the wheel of one of these beauties. Upon gazing at the impeccable condition of this BMW, it’s easy to entertain such a notion. This particular BMW belongs to the era known as the NEUE KLASSES, a phase that pulled BMW back from the brink. The 1602 model, in particular, played the role of a savior. Without this very 1600 model, the E21 and E30 3 Series might never have come to fruition, possibly leaving BMW in dire straits during the 1980s.
“Neue Klasse,” when translated to English, signifies “New Class.” BMW initially applied this term to its groundbreaking sedans of the 1960s and 1970s. The 1602 stands as the compact engine iteration of the beloved 2002—a 1602 badge on a 2002, or the reverse, could easily deceive most observers. Our own 1602 possesses decent performance, and a bit of TLC could easily restore it to greatness. Despite its small 1600 engine and manual gearbox, this little beast proves incredibly fuel-efficient. For dedicated BMW enthusiasts, this specimen is an absolute gem—a sound investment, although the ultimate judgment rests with you.
The Fiat 1100 was introduced in 1937 and produced until 1953. Initially launched as the Fiat 508 C or the Balilla 1100, it took over the Fiat 508 Balilla. The 508 C boasted a refined, modernized body compared to the original 508 Balilla, along with a larger overhead valve engine and an independent front suspension.
In 1939, the model underwent updates and a complete renaming, simply becoming the Fiat 1100. However, production of the last series concluded in 1953, leading to the replacement of the Fiat 508 C by the Fiat 1100/103.
This Fiat still retains its well-preserved original upholstery. Some components like lights and trim parts have been replaced over time.
In 1925, Giovanni Moretti established the Moretti Motor Company, a firm that crafted motorcycles using his own designs alongside those of other companies.

However, the late 1950s saw a halt in car design and production, and by 1989, Moretti ceased all operations.
Now, turning to the Moretti Tour du Monde 750 coupe, it stands as one of only 9 meticulously handcrafted specimens and holds the distinction of being an exceedingly rare right-hand drive model. Following a careful restoration spanning 2 years at Classic Car Restorations, the coupe was revived to its original colors with rejuvenated leather upholstery.

Although the Volkswagen Beetle was designed in the 1930s, production was delayed until the late 1940s due to World War II. Initially labeled as the Volkswagen Type 1, subsequent models followed. Recognized as the “Käfer” in Germany (meaning Beetle in German) and “Coccinelle” in France (translated as ladybug in French), this Beetle represents an evolved iteration. Unlike its predecessors with split oval rear windows, this version boasts a single oval rear window, a change implemented between October 1952 and March 1953.

Between 1966 and 1973, Fiat manufactured the Dino, a rear-wheel-drive sports car featuring a front engine.

In 1967, Formula 2 regulations stipulated the use of six-cylinder engines, requiring a production run of at least 500 units within 12 months. Consequently, Fiat and Ferrari struck an agreement, with Fiat responsible for producing the requisite 500 engines.
This particular Dino 2400 Coupe, initially adorned in silver-blue, underwent a transformation when its present owner applied a Ferrari Giallo (yellow) spray-paint finish. Notably, the car has undergone significant improvements, including overhauls of the fuel system, brakes, and cooling system. Remaining specimens of this model are scarce in South Africa. Could this one potentially become part of your collection?

When it comes to Lamborghini’s from the 1980s, the most renowned and iconic model was the Countach. However, the lesser-known Jalpa might even be more elusive, with only 419 units produced, and a mere 34 of them being Right Hand Drive variants. This Lamborghini was specifically crafted to rival Ferrari’s 308 during that era. Similar to the Ferrari, the Jalpa housed a 3.5 V8 engine mounted transversely in the chassis, resulting in a mid-engine setup. Moreover, the tuned V8 provided an exhilarating experience, positioned right behind the driver.

BMW and Herbert Hartge wouldn’t mind us affectionately dubbing this beauty as “THE GOAT” because, truthfully, this BMW truly lives up to that moniker. In 1971, Herbert Hartge laid the foundation of his eponymous company, specializing in enhancing BMW cars. Over time, Hartge earned recognition as a standalone car manufacturer, allowing them to designate their creations as Hartge products rather than modified BMWs. Our 1988 model, known as the “GOAT,” showcases Hartge’s prowess.
Let’s delve into how Hartge meticulously refined this BMW. The H23 model closely resembled the modified 323i Alpina C1 2.3. Taking the 170hp 2.3-liter engine as a base, Hartge adopted similar enhancements used by Alpina, incorporating an improved camshaft, a forged piston-equipped cylinder head for higher compression. After undergoing a significant transformation, this vehicle ceased to be ordinary; it now stands as an extraordinary marvel in every aspect.

It’s also equipped with the most potent engines available within the F-150/Ranger range. Sporting broader fenders and a distinctive grille design, featuring prominent “FORD” lettering in place of the Ford Blue Oval emblem, the Raptor stands as an emblem of Ford’s iconic F-150 nameplate—a nameplate that boasts the highest cumulative sales across its production history, surpassing all other automobiles globally.
The specific example we present has undergone extensive modifications, setting it apart from the typical F-150 Raptor SVT. After undergoing a right-hand-drive conversion in Canada, the vehicle made its way to South Africa in 2015 and was duly registered for local road use. From the factory, it inherits SVT performance enhancements including adjustable coilovers and SVT suspension sway bars. Customized additions encompass a winch, air compressor, ‘Baja’ styled front and rear bumpers, Mickey Thompson mud terrain tires, upgraded exhaust, supplementary lighting, an enhanced sound system, upgraded differentials, and Fox shock absorbers with reservoirs. Notably, a Roush supercharger has been integrated into the 6.2L V8 engine, elevating its output to around 700bhp. This F-150 Raptor SVT truly embodies a formidable entity, deserving an in-person encounter to fully grasp its commanding presence.

Additionally, a comprehensive tire pressure-monitoring system, high-performance free-flow exhaust, and an extended-range fuel tank elevate its capabilities.
Cosmetic enhancements are equally striking, including a new bonnet, grille, top-tier JW Speaker LED lights, a compact bull bar housing a Warn winch, a concise rear bar accompanied by a spare wheel carrier, and a prominent LED light bar. Inside the cabin, a dual-battery system intertwined with rooftop solar panels, an upscale Rockford Fosgate sound system, and a sPOD power management system redefine comfort and convenience. The cabin’s aesthetics have been thoughtfully color-coordinated, featuring subtle touches of yellow accents.

The GMC is a part of the Chevrolet brand, and some liken it to what AMG is to Mercedes Benz today. The late 40s and early 50s marked a remarkable era in design and rapid development, resulting in yearly changes to vehicles. Once a workhorse, this truck carried all sorts of goods for the working folk of its time. Today, it’s transformed into a showpiece with an impressive stance and presence.
This GMC boasts intricate details, from its eye-catching silver paintwork to the 5-spoke Boss Motorsport wheels that snugly fit within the wheel arches. Beneath the wheels, you’ll notice the Jaguar suspension seamlessly integrated into the GMC Chassis, instilling confidence in its handling and stopping abilities. This is crucial because under the hood, there’s a Chevrolet LS1 Engine that roars to life, providing a modern Chevy SS Ute-like experience.
However, the real star of the show is the cabin of this ’48 Pick-up. It’s adorned in luxurious leather, from the bench seat to the dash, with a touch of aluminum accents on the steering wheel and gauges.
There’s only one way to describe this masterpiece on wheels—it’s an awe-inspiring sight on the road or in any parking lot and a sheer delight to drive. So, if you’re a fan of Resto Mods, this truck is an absolute must-have. Don’t miss out on it.

Durant’s Motor Company, the maker of this car, had a relatively short lifespan, producing vehicles from 1924 to 1933. They were a significant competitor for the FORD cars of that era.

As for this vintage beauty, we’re certain she has witnessed many glorious days, and given the way they constructed cars back then, she still has numerous Sunday tours left in her with her new owners. So, if you’re looking for one of these cherished classics, be sure to place your bid.
This vehicle is currently a non-runner and is a project car that would need to be worked on to bring back to a driveable state.
This beautiful Chevy must have served as a grand old family vehicle just after the Great Depression, and interestingly, Chevrolet outsold Ford that year too. These old ladies came standard with wire wheels back in the day, and in 1931, Chevy added the Eagle Emblem on the radiator. Our research suggests that this AE Independence was assembled in Buffalo, New York.
Now, this Chevy has come a long way since then, and if it could speak, it would surely regale us with tales of yore. However, the history of this car is fascinating, but we’re more interested in its future. The question is, will you place your bids before we hear those resounding words: “SOLD, SOLD, SOLD”?
This old-timer is part of the AC International Series of Chevrolet, and considering she’s 95 years old, she’s still in great condition. The classic grey and black color combination complements the car, and the styling is beautifully accentuated by the pressed steel wheels.

In the world of Grand Tourers, Ferrari has held a leading position for many years, and the 456 GT marked the Italian sports car company’s triumphant return.
The GT Car formula, with the engine up front, in this case, a 5.5L 12V engine, the gearbox positioned behind, rear-wheel drive, and the ability to carry up to 4 passengers, is perfectly embodied by this Ferrari.
The only drawback, if one can call it that, is that this Ferrari was exclusively offered with a manual transmission. However, we find the gated 6-speed gearbox to be both cool and enjoyable to operate.
Under the hood, this 456 boasts a refined 12V engine that delivers a satisfying driving experience. Furthermore, its extensive documented history adds to its appeal.
Grand Tourers excel at providing the essential elements of a fun driving experience and truly shine on open roads. If this aligns with your preference and you’re looking to add a prancing Stallion to your collection, this Ferrari could be the perfect choice.

Under the unconventional hood lies a 302 Ford V8 with electronic ignition, a hefty Four Barrel Holley Carb, and a blower-like intake. The exhaust system resembles Gatling guns, complete with hanging ammo chains. This setup pairs with a 3-speed automatic gearbox, providing a thrilling drive. The chassis, though unknown, ensures this Steampunk Overdrive mobile handles well and is equipped with reliable disc brakes.
The cabin is equally unconventional, featuring a chain-made chrome steering wheel and uniquely designed seats that offer a sensory driving experience. The artistic theme continues with a rifle and two handguns as part of the decor, enhancing the Steampunk vibe.
Finally, the body of this Overdrive Machine, a 1940s Pick-Up, is a true masterpiece in patina. From the rusty hole in the roof to the Rat in the truck bed, and the scattered ammo casings, every detail adds character. Even the handcrafted grill is a work of art.
