Daihatsu Copen

The Daihatsu Copen is an appealing subcompact car that was originally imported to Europe with right-hand drive, only to be adjusted to left-hand drive in 2006. To ensure respectable road performance, the engine was also upgraded from 659 cc to 1.3 L.

One special feature is the model’s electric retractable roof, which folds down and disappears completely into the boot. Only 3.4 m long and weighing in at 875 kg, the Copen is particularly agile and at home on the back roads – making it sweeter for summertime enjoyment than almost any other car of its size.

Triumph TR7

Following the fairly classic TR2-TR6 models, the designers at British Leyland took a chance on a more daring, radically modern design for the new Triumph TR7. Particularly striking was the extreme wedge shape, which Italian designers had already presented in the prototypes of the Alfa Romeo 33 Carabo and Lamborghini Countach. The shape gave the TR7 a sleekness and real sense of movement –as if the car could lift off and glide through the air.

The model was launched in 1975 as a coupé, boasting a 2.0 L 4-cylinder engine. The convertible arrived in 1979 and started shipping to Switzerland in 1980. Production of the TR7 came to an end a year later, in October 1981. During its six-year run, approximately 12,000 convertibles and just under 100,000 coupés were built.

Triumph TR4A

The Triumph TR4, featuring a body created by Italian automotive designer Giovanni Michelotti, debuted in 1961. With four-speed fully synchronised transmission, the TR4 boasted a significantly wider track and interior than its predecessor, the TR3. Other improvements included rack-and-pinion steering, which replaced the worm-and-roller design, and wind-up windows instead of the awkward plug-in windows. With a solid performance at a reasonable price, the TR4 was only slightly behind other sports cars of the same era. It accelerated from 0 to 100 km/h in 12 seconds and reached a top speed of 174 km/h. The TR4A body – which had been based on its predecessor, the TR4 – concealed the new chassis with independent multi-link rear suspension. This particular model boasts the Surrey Top, a kind of targa/semi-convertible top with a removable roof.

Range Rover

Rover launched an off-road vehicle in 1970 that combined two worlds: off-road like a Land Rover and blessed with the driving experience of a large saloon – thanks to coil springs and a V8 engine.

The magazine Auto Revue put it in a nutshell in 1973: “If you drive the Range Rover along the motorway, you will receive more admiration than if you drive a Lamborghini at 200 km/h: the environment can hardly believe the sprinting performance of the bull”.

The forefather of today’s luxury SUVs offers excellent visibility and already has power steering. Ideal for driving up to an alp or over bumpy back roads.

MG C Roadster

The MGC – based on the still-popular MGB but equipped with a 3.0 L 6-cylinder engine – was produced for less than two years between the end of 1967 and mid-1969. The model was British Leyland’s answer to replacing the aging Austin Healey 3000 at the end of the 1960s. Due to the heavier engine, the front axle had to be reinforced.

When the model was launched, critics considered it too front-heavy and not sporty enough. Its silky-smooth engine makes it better suited for cruising on quiet country roads than tearing around curves over a mountain pass. Just over 9,000 MGCs were manufactured before the model was discontinued.

Jaguar Mk2

The Jaguar Mk2 (Mark 2, Mark II, MK2) is considered the very first compact sporty saloon. The success of this exceptional model can be attributed to its inimitable combination of superior technology – with the 3.8 L 6-cylinder engine and disc brakes on all four wheels – and exclusive interior, with its ample use of walnut, comfortable leather seats and other classic British touches. The Mark 2 was adored by the underworld and authorities alike. In the 1960s, in fact, the police in the Swiss canton of Aargau had five of them in their fleet to help them patrol the brand new N1 Autobahn, as it was then called. This model features automatic transmission for a comfortable drive as well as power-steering for easier maneuvering while parking. Seating four to five people, it is suitable for true 60’s-style family outings.

Aston Martin DB7

The DB7 was the first Aston Martin in 20 years not to be powered by a V8 engine.

The DB7 was designed by Scotsman Ian Callum, who had previously been chief designer at Carrozzeria Ghia in Turin. By autumn 2003, over 7000 Aston Martin DB7s had been produced, making it the most successful Aston Martin until the introduction of the Vantage V8.

Experience a classic Gran Turismo feel with a timelessly beautiful car in our DB7.

Jaguar XJ-SC TWR

This unique piece exudes a touch of rebellion. It was created at the suggestion of Emil Frey AG, in collaboration with Jaguar Germany, at Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR). The aim was to make the XJ-S one of the fastest cars on German motorways.

The modifications included an increase in displacement to 6 litres and a power increase from 290 hp to 335 hp. In addition, this specimen received a 5-speed manual gearbox (only an automatic was available from the factory) as well as profound chassis modifications.

As a convertible with roll-over protection, our XJ-SC can also be driven open. A wonderful cruiser for long trips.

Aston Martin V8 Volante

The Aston Martin V8, created as a follow-up to the DBS range, was launched with a coupé variant. The convertible, named the Aston Martin Volante, arrived in 1978. The V8 engine was developed in-house by Tadek Marek, who had been responsible for the 6-cylinder engines of the previous generation.

The elegantly designed interior, with its beautiful walnut dashboard and comfortable leather seats, could not be more British. The smooth V8 engine makes for a special kind of driving pleasure on beautiful country roads. This car captures a unique “James Bond feeling” – the kind of fun you should experience at least once.

Jaguar E-Type V12

The E-Type contains all the ingredients of a sports car: too flat, too hot and too tight for everyday use. Its infinitely long bonnet made it an icon of the golden era of the automobile.

Our model is from the last series of the E-Type, equipped with the 5.3 litre V12. This highly refined engine with a torque of over 400 Nm gave the E-Type a somewhat less sporty, but all the more supple character. The interior also offers a little more comfort than the original version from 1961.

Either way, the pleasure of open-top driving is guaranteed with our E-Type, a car for dual carriageways as well as Alpine passes.
