Bye Bye Beetle - Our stunning 55 VW Beetle Convertible sold at the RM auction at Amelia Island on Saturday for $82,500 (incl buyers premium). It was a bittersweet moment; we will miss that beautiful car being around, but knowing that she’s going to someone who will also appreciate her class and quality makes it easier to say goodbye.
OK… in the paragraph below, I asked “is there anything cooler or more fun to drive than an Austin Cooper S?”… well it didn’t take long, but I’ve realized, yes there is! How about a 1967 Porsche 911S. SWB 1960’S 911S… HEAVEN ON WHEELS!
Enjoy these pics and contact Ken ASAP if you want to buy this beauty. You can call +1 828 654-322 or email Ken@WeLoveCoolCars.com
NEWEST INVENTORY… Is there anything cooler or more fun to drive than a classic 1967 Austin Cooper S?
This little beauty was celebrity owned, it’s in excellent condition and sports a killer, original color. If you’re interested, you can call Ken today +1 828 674-6155. This one probably won’t be around for very long.
Our incredible Miura S sells at Artcurial Retromobile for €806,720 (inc fees) approximately $1,095,000! - Original cars are bringing very strong prices all over the world and this was the most original Miura S any of us had seen. The Miura was driven onto the stage by legendary Lamborghini Test Driver Valentino Balboni and the original owner was in attendance. What a great occasion, what a wonderful car and I’m very happy to say that this beauty is on her way across the Atlantic to a new home here in the States. Here’s a video of the auction.
The Carolinas Region of the Porsche Club of America also LOVES COOL CARS! - We had a great time and a great turnout on Saturday morning when the PCA visited our facility to check out our cool cars. I’d like to thank everyone who came out.
Paris and Retromobile Next week - Our all-original Miura S is up for auction at Artcurial in Paris next week. It will be interesting to take the pulse of the European market. I’m expecting it will be very much the same as here, bouyant and hungry for good cars, with original cars bringing a premium.
Our F40 has sold well and sold quickly. We have another Lamborghini Miura S coming out of service very soon, which will be available for sale here in the US. Additional new inventory includes a 74 Pantera that just came in trade and a killer 58 Ferrari 250GT Ellena which I have for sale in Germany. Call Ken for details +1 828 654-3222.
The Phoenix/Scottsdale auctions were great fun this year. Wonderful cars, strong prices and a healthy attitude amongst everyone out there. The market continues to roll on, with good cars bringing good prices. “ORIGINALITY” and “PRESERVATION” cars were the toast of the auctions, with some extraordinary results. The $178,750 Mercedes 280SE 3.5 Coupe makes mine look like a steal and that black Gullwing, which brought restored Gullwing money, was a another strong showing. I bought several cars for the permanent collection, including a 6,000 mile 1973 Lotus Elan Sprint Coupe, a Mercedes 280SE Cab, an Aston Martin V8 Volante and a Maserati Bora 4.9.
Just in… is this very rare 2013 Range Rover Evoque Special Edition. 1 of only 5 delivered to the US! This thing isn’t just cosmetically appealing, this thing is an animal! It has a "stealth-like appearance" with matte gray color scheme, glossy black roof and trim, with 20-inch wheels exclusive to this special edition. There also is an abundance of rose-gold accents, painted on the wheel and plated just about everywhere else, inside and out. Pics and info soon.
Do you love F40s? I do! This one’s a beauty. I bought this car several years ago from a prominent collection and now it’s time for a new home. I’ve bought and sold several F40s and this is easily one of the very best that I’ve seen. It is in exquisite condition, just 3,000 miles and has obviously lived a pampered life. (SOLD!)
JUST BACK FROM TOKYO!!!! I’ve been in Japan buying more JDM cars and having the time of my life driving a Z432 on the quiet Sunday streets of Tokyo. That was A BLAST, right up there with the time that I drove our 959 on the Autobahn.
In inventory, we have these two super-cool GTC/4’s, a 74 Pantera, a blue Miura S (due back from service soon), the gold Ghibli 4.9SS Coupe, two pre-war Mercedes Sedans, a turbo Porsche, Jag XK140 Coupe and more...
You may never have another opportunity to buy a car like this. I'm honored that my buddy Joe has asked me to help him market this AMAZING GT40 MKIV #J16. Built by Kar Kraft from the original blueprints, this car is considered a continuation car by the Shelby Registry. READ THIS OVERVIEW (WARNING LARGE FILE 13MB) It's thoroughly sorted and ready to blow your mind. This car is VERY IMPRESSIVE in person. Enjoy these pics

Home from New York and the RM Sotheby’s auction. The “Art of the Automobile” concept was a very cool one and the results show that we’re still in a strong market which continues to strengthen. Sitting in the garage and waiting for my return were our new Maserati Ghibli 4.9SS coupe and Red/Black 1971 Ferrari 365 GTC/4. Weather hasn’t permitted my usual pics, but here’s a taste of just how nice this Maserati is. The Ferrari is it’s equal, if not better, with pics coming ASAP. Here are some auction pics too.
Certainly one of the best-driving early 70’s European Coupes and they look SO COOL! I’m looking forward to putting a few miles on this beauty. It’s going to be a tough call though, whether to jump into this or the Ferrari 365GTC/4, when I want to tour through the mountains.
You can call Ken for more info +1 828 654-3222
Waiting for me when I came back from my latest European adventure, (tracking down the best and most beautiful cars in the world, then trying to buy them), was this spectacular Enzo and stunning 1957 Mercedes 300SL Roadster. The Enzo is already SOLD!, the 300SL won’t be for sale.
Had a wonderful week in the UK, including a great time at Salon Prive (thanks Andrew and David, Peter and Mary), where our spectacular 1936 Mercedes Benz 540K Cabriolet A Sport took home 2nd in it's class.
I also enjoyed the splendor of St James' Palace for a Concours event with my son Matthew, and finally on to London, where I fell in love and bought two killer pre-war Mercedes to bring back to North Carolina.
The red one is a rare 6-cyllinder 1935 170 Sedan that has a matching trailer and the black one is a 1939 170V Cabriolet. These cars will arrive soon and will be available for purchase. Both are EXCELLENT, completely restored cars in fine running condition.
Finished my trip with the best curry of my life at Tamarind in London W1 (thanks for that recommendation Ekaterina).
Back from a successful week at Pebble Beach and Monterey. We added four new cars to the permanent collection; a 72 Porsche 911S Targa, a Maserati Ghibli 4.9SS Coupe, an Aston Martin DB4 and an Aston Martin DBS. On my way home, I stopped in San Francisco and bought a stunning late-build 1970 Lamborghini Miura S with factory A/C and SV Spec ventilated brakes, which will be coming back to Asheville for sale.
I'm pretty excited about the Citroen 2CV that's on it's way. "WHAT, " (I hear you guys screaming) "is cool about a Citroen 2CV?" Well, it's no ordinary 2CV. It's a 2CV Sahara. Never heard of a Sahara? Well, check out this video and be AMAZED!
I've just returned from a successful trip to Tokyo where I picked up this STUNNING ENZO for the permanent collection.
Easily the best-looking Enzo I've seen, in showroom condition, just 497 kilometers, Ferrari Classiche Certified and a drop dead Red interior.
I also had the opportunity to view several JDM car collections, (Too much fun! I think there's a teenage "tuner" hidden underneath this European Connoisseur's visage).
Sometimes (ha, who am i kidding)… ALL THE TIME, I fall in love with cars that I should be selling and I have to remind myself that I can't keep them all! I would love to keep this one, i really would, but it's meant for a TRUE HEALEY ENTHUSIAST. If that's you, I dare you to check out these pictures and the story of our 11,790 mile barn find Austin Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8.
Back in the office after a wet weekend at Mike Yager's VW Funfest in Effingham (best name for any city EVER!) Illinois. The rain tried to wash us out, but we had a great time anyway. Mac Jones' WWII Collection of KdF cars and other hictoric war items is worth the trip alone and all of the donations go to a WWII Veterans Memorial. Mike has a Corvette Funfest later in the year. If you're interested in Corvettes or car shows in general, I encourage you to check out this one, I can't remember an event with a better host or as enthusiastic a family as the Yagers. I'll have some pics online soon.
I took The opportunity of stopping by my friend Mac's place near Memphis and traveling with him to Effingham, just so that he could give me a driving lesson in one of our recent acqusitions for the private collection. Here's a video -> http://youtu.be/A6W446U81vw
Another addition to the permanent collection, a 1962 Maserati 3500GT. I've been looking for the right car for a while now and finally found this one. We're going to take it back to it's original color and add it to the permanent collection. I WOULD LOVE TO FIND ANOTHER 3500GT Coupe or a 3500GT Spider, so if you know of these, please contact KEN 828-674-6155. I'm also looking for a Bora, Ghiblis and Mistrals.Today we ship the Lamborghini Diablo GT and the 65 Superformance 427 Cobra to Dubai. Two truly wicked cars, which we'll certainly miss. Here's a video that I shot of the Lamborghini today.
Essen Techno Classica finished with a BANG for us. We bought another 250GT Ellena, a Fiat 750 Abarth Double Bubble Zagato (for the permanent collection) and a super-cool Lancia Flamina Super-Sport Zagato for restoration.
Our Porsche GT1 and 959 were on display and I took the opportunity to test drive our 959 on the AUTOBAHN. We pulled up to the gas station, loaded up on 100 octane and took our new beauty out on a wonderful 150mph run. (Now, I can scratch that one off the bucket list.)
Click the pic on the left for more pics of our GT1. If you're interested in purchasing a 959, this beauty is on her way to Monterey for the RM auction. I have a 1988 Komfort version in the same color on the way from Germany, due to land in the States soon. Call me (KEN) to discuss +1 828-654-3222
My other Essen highlight having lunch with Valentino Balboni! He was instrumental in a deal that we just closed on an Italian collection (details coming soon). Here's a sample of just a very few of the great cars on display in Essen.
