Morgan 4/4 – 1000 Miles From New

Our extremely low mileage 2011 Morgan 4/4 is now live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website.

With just over 1000 miles on the clock, this car is essentially brand new. Low-mileage vehicles, particularly those as desirable as the Morgan 4/4, are highly sought after in the collector car market. The minimal wear and tear ensures that the car remains as close to its original state as possible, which significantly enhances its appeal and potential value.

To give the lucky winner the opportunity to keep mileage low on the car, 12 months of free storage at our secure storage facility is included with the car. If this option is taken, the car will be kept in a Carcoon – a climate-controlled bubble to ensure that it is kept in optimal conditions, protecting it from the elements and maintaining its condition.  By keeping the car in a stable environment like this, its integrity and value are preserved.

Rise and Shine – Our 1971 Triumph GT6 Cleaned and Ready for its new owner

The transport team have been working on getting the 1971 Triumph GT6 all cleaned up and ready to go for the delivery to its excited new owner.

After being signed off by the workshop, our driver Tony worked his magic to get this classic British sports car looking like a million dollars ahead of its delivery later tonight.

Refinish – Painting parts of our 1986 Fiat X19

Our paint and body team have been working on the 1986 Fiat X19 to get this quirky 1980s sports car looking as good as possible.

Overall, the paintwork on the car is in very good condition but there were a few areas which needed the careful and skilled attention of our painter, Chris. Those areas were the front and rear bumpers as well as the removable roof panel. So, after rubbing them back Chris laid down several coats of thick, glossy, hard wearing black to rejuvenate these parts and get the car looking as good as new.

Better than new – repainting and refitting our 1958 Austin-Healey 100/6

The automotive wizard which is our very own Alan has worked his magic on our 1958 Austin-Healey 100/6 to breathe new life into the look of this wonderfully British sports car.

To begin with, he stripped down all of the trims from the car before reworking a few areas of the car to get its beautiful shape into perfect condition before then taking into our paint booth for a new coat of blue over old english cream. Then, it was a case of fitting everything back onto the car but this time with a much better fit and finish.

Primed and Ready – Our 1960 MGA Roadster in Polyfan

Our 1960 MGA Roadster has been perfected by the paint and body team here at the Bridge Classic Cars Suffolk HQ in order to make sure that every panel and surface is smooth as glass.

Our technician Mauro has been painstakingly getting the body of the classic sports car ready by repeated rounds of filler and sanding work to build up areas which couldn’t be adjusted by the use of hammer and dolly. Once this stage was complete, the car was blown off to get rid of any sanding dust before taken into the booth, masked up and spray with its first coats of polyfan before it is sanded down again to begin the next stage.

Our C-Type back from paint protection

Our C-Type is now back in the building after being with a local specialist to have its paint protection film (PPF) applied to the bonnet and front wings of the car.

This is to help protect all the hard work by the Bridge Classic Cars paint and body team from stone chips and any other debris which will come into contact with the front of the car as its out and about on the open road.

A New Shade – Painting a Classic Race Mini for Team C

The paint team here at Bridge Classic Cars have been incredibly busy the last few weeks, including the prep and paint for this. A classic racing Mini belonging to our friend Ted from Team C Racing.

Chris took the shell and sanded everything back before priming it and finishing the whole car in a glossy shade of black for the guys at Team C to then get their livery applied and the bite-sized bruiser will be ready to hit the track!

Suffolk Show 2024 – Day 1

Molly and Lily have been at the Suffolk Show since early this morning. After setting up the Bridge Classic Cars stand yesterday, they are ready to go for day 1 of the big event.

On the stand, you can see our 2011 Morgan 4/4 with just over 1000 miles on the clock, our 1977 Triumph TR7, and our 1954 Daimler Conquest Roadster. The Morgan and TR7 are both currently live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website and are available to win for just a few pounds.

Molly and Lily can also give you a small glimpse into the brand-new Bridge Classic Cars Members’ Club which is launching very soon.

If you are at the Suffolk Show today or tomorrow, head over to stand 473 and say hello to the girls!

A Tail of Two Cars – The AGTZ Breaks Cover Recently at Lake Como

There are some names in the automotive world which ignite a feeling of passion and wonder. One of those, is Zagato. The legendary Italian coachbuilders have been designing and crafting dreams since their earliest days back in 1919, but their latest project not only pays tribute to the past but also the future with the AGTZ alongside their partner La Squadra.

The name La Squadra may not be known to many, but its one that you should pay attention to. Created in Katowice, Poland in 2013 they specialise in distributing brands such as Ferrari, Pagani, Koenigsegg, Bugatti and Alpine to true enthusiasts and collectors to fulfill the automotive dreams with stunning pieces of kinetic, mechanical art – such as the AGTZ.

Celebrating the fabled Alpine A220 racecar, which famously began as an elegant and flowing long-tail design before having 300mm removed from its length to give a more muscular short-tail design, the AGTZ has a unique and innovative way of paying homage to both iterations of this famous endurance racer.

The AGTZ, has a removable twin-tail design. The long-tail extension, which gives the car a longer more harmonious design, can be removed to reveal a small, more defined short-tail look depending on what one of the lucky 19 owners feels like. Unlike other manufacturers who offer a ‘long-tail’ specification, the AGTZ grows over 450mm in length with the rear extension in place, this also changes the aerodynamics of the low-slung sports racer for the road as it greatly reduces the car aerodynamic drag coefficient and allow for a higher top speed while maintaining a better high-speed stability.

Firstly, lets take a look back at the car that this modern wonder is based on. The fabled Alpine A220.

The A220 set its sets on winning Le Mans in 1966, although the programme can be traced back to 1963 with the simple, elegant but problematic M63 project. The A220 was specifically designed and engineered to take the fight to teams like Chaparral, Ferrari and Ford in the twilight years of the 4 to 7 litre category of prototype racing. But, its long and impactful bodywork would make that car stand the test of time and would help to cement its place in endurance racing history.

But it didn’t stop there, after the long-tail design was retired the engineers and designs began to test the aerodynamic capabilities of the car as a ‘short-tail’ variant. The longer car, was excellent at high-speed circuits but at more punchy, dynamic tracks the car became a bit of a handful (at the same time, Porsche would have the same idea with their legendary 917). So, sacrificing the high-speed car the team would begin shortening the bodywork to create a car with better aerodynamics for handling and the race wins began to follow.

To honour this engineering challenge and triumph, the team at La Squadra and Zagato teamed up to create a modern day love letter to that beautiful race car culminating in the AGTZ.

In the span of just 12 months, the Zagato team took this bold, modernist designs from the drawing board to the crystal blue waters which lap the shore of Lake Como. In February, the automotive world were blessed with the unveiling of the scale model of the car which set the internet ablaze with wonder and speculation. With deliveries of the 19 cars due to begin in October of 2024, the car has received huge positive feedback from the automotive world after its static unveiling in Italy where more details of the cars have been revealed.

Each of the 19 cars will spend around 15 weeks at the Zagato studios to begin their 1000 hour build process. A team of artisan craftspeople will painstakingly transform the base car into the AGTZ in the customers design specification, making each one of these cars a truly handbuilt masterpiece with the vast array of options open to clients of La Squadra, who will handle the maintenance and sales of each of the cars. Price begin at around £550,000 before tax, but for something as bespoke, exclusive and passion-fueled its a small price to pay for those lucky 19 owners.
