Two rare cars for sale in France

Post by DARK STAR » Fri Oct 30, 2015 7:25 pm

First of all, a Martin Hall SE5 'GTC' in exceptional condition in Charente (16).
The car has up-to-date UK paperwork but will be very easy to register in France with an RSSOC Certificat de Conformité.

Aren't clues meant to make it easier to guess the answer? :lol:

It's not too difficult.
Did you know Princess Anne has one?

Ok, I didn't actually say it was a Scimitar, and Middlebridges are quite rare.
This is the only one registered in France (and Switzerland, and the UK :shock: )
It is certainly one of the finest Scimitars in the world, and Louis was not planning to sell it - ever.
But health problems have unfortunately changed his plans.

Two rare cars? With the delay in posting the second car, I thought you were casting doubts on the authenticity of the 5 GTC! :wink:

I am sorry to hear that Louis is selling, I am about to write the registrar's piece for the next Slice and will mention this. Thanks for the heads up.

I am sorry to hear about Louis having to sell his MB ... :(
What a stunning car, the photos do pay credits to it ... it is absolutely gorgeous when you see it in the flesh 8)
Unfortunately not in my budget - which will now be dedicated to TLC on the fleet - otherwise I would buy it on the spot :mrgreen:
Thanks Chris for this couple of rare things - and thanks to Jörg for having established contact with Nick Matthews in Nogaro :!: -
Cheers,
Fred
