Kaege Retro Porsche 911: Much More Than A Restomod

Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για Kaege Retro Porsche 911


Roger Kaege first saw a Singer-modified Porsche in a magazine back in 2009 and was drawn to the car’s appearance and ethos. He’s not alone in that regard, but looking into the cost of ownership put him on a different path toward parking a “modern vintage” Porsche in his garage—Roger happens to be a vehicle and chassis engineer, so he decided to take the project on himself. He’s poured 2,000 hours into the build since he bought the base car, a rear-wheel drive 993, and though he was inspired by Singer he didn’t set out to recreate their work. Rather, he stuck with more Porsche series production parts to keep the cost down with the benefit of proven reliability and serviceability. It’s still very much built to spec though, and Roger’s high standards that saw pieces like the front bumper reworked multiple times in pursuit of getting it just right have ensured that such a description fits the car as a whole. He’s achieved the balance between modern performance and retro optics, taking no shortcuts along the way. Drive Tastefully® http://Petrolicious.com

See here this spectacularly restored `60 Aston Martin DB4 series II. It comes with a rich history starting on the 19th September 1960 with its first owner, Mr Syd Green of Weybridge, Surrey, UK. A renowned racing driver of that era who in the 1950`s co-piloted a Maserati 250 F with Roy Salvadori. Right from the word go, Aston Martin professionally serviced this car. A comprehensive history file accompanies the car and includes a copy of the original factory build sheet with maintenance up to 1969 as well as the original owners manual, many MOT`s, service history and invoices. The car was sold in 1991 to a Mr Brafman of Richmond Surrey who undertook the cars first restoration. The whole process has been photographed and has accompanying extensive written details. In 1996 the car was sold to its third owner, a Mr. Baguette of Portsmouth, UK. The car was mainly used on Jersey were he had his second house. 9 years later in 2005, the car was sold to Dr Wagner, its fourth and last owner. During 2006 -2007 Le Riche of Jersey undertook a complete restoration of the car, again fully documented with photographs and detailed invoices totalling over £ 57.000, - Le Riche is an internationally renowned specialist restorer. The original Connolly leather trim and Wilton carpets were refurbished. As one may expect, the bodywork looks to be in superb condition throughout, with high-quality finishes and fit to its panels. It has been finished in the iconic Aston Martin colour 'Snow Shadow Grey` which is complemented by the Burgundy red Connolly leather trim and Borrani wire wheels. The engine was upgraded to Vantage specification to include three HD8 SU carburettors as opposed to the standard twin version, boosting the power output to 270bhp in the process. At the same time, the cylinder head was changed to accommodate the use of unleaded petrol. Naturally, the car has retained its` matching numbers engine and gearbox. This car not only looks the part, the mechanics are second to none as well. A superbly restored 4-owner DB4 with an exceptional provenance!
