Classic cars and MotorMartin would appear to be spending a lot of time together recently as there’s just so much to report on at the moment. For fans of classic Jaguars and Porsches, you’ll be pleased to know that leading London classic car dealer Hexagon is appearing at The London Classic Car Show with a host of incredible classics, including possibly the lowest-mileage Jaguar E-Type Fixed Head Coupé and Porsche 911 SC Targa models in the world. Amazing and for anyone still unsure as to why the E-Type is still coveted by many should watch the excellent film below as supplied by Jaguar Heritage from their wonderful YouTube channel.
In all, five amazing cars will appear on Hexagon’s stand from 18-21 February at The London Classic Car Show held at ExCeL, but Hexagon’s involvement doesn’t stop there. It will also be showcasing a Porsche 356 Speedster in the Grand Avenue Parade, and a Jaguar XK140 in the ‘Memory Lane’ feature. Is there no end to Hexagon’s treasures?
The incredible E-Type shown above was supplied new in 1966 to a Mr. D G Owen of Christchurch, New Zealand, where it remained until it was recently acquired by Hexagon. Since new, the car has covered just 10,513 miles and incredibly, comes complete with the original tool roll, maintenance voucher book and warranty certificate and there can’t be many E-Type left in such an original condition.
Another low mileage classic on the stand is the above 1983 Porsche 911 SC Sport Targa with just 8,100 miles on the clock. Having spent its life in Jersey, this Guards Red and Pasha interior car is in immaculate condition, having undergone a full recent recommissioning and much like the E-Type, would appear to be in stunningly original condition.
Also on the stand is a one-of-31 AC 428 Frua Coupe. This ultra-rare machine, finished in AC Mist Silver Metallic, combines an elegant Italian body with a big block American V8 and is a marque that MotorMartin has not heard of before. The Frua was acquired by Hexagon last year and has been subject to a complete overhaul, including a full interior re-trim using the correct black leather Connolly hides and like Hexagon’s other cars, looks immaculate.
Hexagon is also very proud to present a 1979 Ferrari 512 BB in Argento Auteuil metallic paint with Nero Leather interior. One of just 101 UK right-hand-drive cars supplied, it was sold new by Lancaster Garage Colchester and carries a complete service history warranting its 44,080 miles. That’s not an typing error by the way, it really has covered an average of 1,191 miles per year from new.
Rounding off Hexagon’s stand display is the stunning Porsche 911 993 Carrera 4S shown above, which has covered just 8,396 miles. This manual-equipped car comes with desirable Sports seats and is finished in Arctic Silver with a black full leather interior.
The London Classic Car Show will be hosting a Classic Six Nations Cup parade on the Grand Avenue, in which Hexagon will be representing Germany with a beautiful concours-standard Porsche 356 Speedster. In the ‘Memory Lane’ area of the show, Hexagon will be displaying a gorgeous 1956 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupé, recently subject to a thorough restoration.
Sharing with MotorMartin, Hexagon chairman, Paul Michaels, said, “The selection of cars we’ll have on display at ExCeL is a perfect snapshot of Hexagon’s world-class stock. We specialise in offering the best of the best. Last year’s London Classic Car Show was a great success and we’re looking forward to welcoming visitors onto our stand again.”
