Curated Presents Five-car, Single-owner “The 80s Time Capsule Collection”


 

Vintage Supercar dealer Curated is excited to offer an unparalleled five-car, single-owner collection of incredible European Icons. Listed for sale individually, each vehicle forms part of ‘The 80s Time Capsule Collection’ and has been lovingly preserved to an exceptional standard by a passionate collector from new. All the cars have unique factory specifications and liveries. The collection is arguably the best example of low mileage 1980s and 1990s automobiles Curated has had the opportunity to represent.

Headlining the collection is one of the most iconic Mercedes-Benz AMG examples produced. This unique Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC is potentially the most documented and well preserved example of an original AMG 6.0 4V in existence. Purchased new in 1987 and shipped direct to AMG Westmont. In its original Black paint over Palomino hydes the car is complimented by the original AMG 6.0, 32V engine, penta-wheels, styling package and suspension. All AMG options documented from new.

The collection also features three low mileage Lamborghini icons. The 1988 Lamborghini Jalpa, is believed to be the last Jalpa produced for North America and the only example produced in Nero over Nero with White Piping and White optioned Silhouette wheels. A stunning and unique combination ordered by the original owner. This incredible example still wears its original Pirelli P7R tires and has 3,200 original miles.

1 of 60 produced for the world, the 1990 Lamborghini LM002 America is finished in stunning original Bianco Perlato paint over Red hides. Documented 1,274 original miles that are represented by its original Pirelli “Sand Lip” tires. A time capsule LM002, that still has the factory delivery keychain affixed to the ignition key!

The 1989 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary has just over 2,600 miles and is in striking Nero Tenebre over Cream leather. Accented by Black piping, the interior still smells new and all of the contours and foam are in excellent condition!

Concluding the collection is the 499 mile 1991 Lotus Esprit X180R. 1 of 20 produced for the world. The Esprit X180Rs were built as road-legal homologation cars in order for Lotus to compete in the SCCA World Challenge and IMSA Bridgestone Supercar Championships. The Esprit X180R was the last factory-built race car with a full roll cage that was Street Legal and sold new in the United States.

“These outstanding cars represent some of the most iconic Automobiles of the 1980s in arguably the best condition and preservation we have seen,” said John Temerian of Curated. “Not only are they in incredible condition but they are complete with original tools, records, books, documents and more! It’s truly an honor to represent cars of this caliber.”
