Supplied new via agents British Motors in Monaco, built to French specification with highly desirable European bumpers, KPH speedo and special order mohair soft top. Tailor made to order for Mademoiselle Mouna Ayoub and delivered new to the Hotel de Paris, Pl. du Casino, 98000 Monaco. Chassis number #5466 stayed in Mademoiselle Ayoub’s ownership in the Principality for the next 11 years where the car covered just 25,000km. In 1997 the AM was acquired by UK based collector Mr David Woolley Esq. Who drove the car back to the UK and made all the preparations to road register the car, issued with UK registration August 1997. Fast forward 7 years later and a further 19,000km added, the AM passed into the ownership of its next UK owner Mr. Conal Austin who immediately dispatched highly regarded marque specialists Pugsley & Lewis to go through the car in preparation for a dash across the Channel for Le Mans. Over the next 4 years Mr. Austin added a further 10,000km. May 2008 the car passed into the ownership of its 4th and last owner where the car traveled a further 6,000km over 13 years bringing the grand total to only 53,867km/33,472mi from new.
Since being acquired by DD Classics significant refurbishment works have been carried out, the coachwork has been repainted to perfection. Mechanically nothing has been overlooked and a full overhaul of the braking system including master cylinders x 2, servos, hoses, callipers removed and rebuilt, damper bushes, filters and plus changed. Additionally the air conditioning system has been full serviced and converted to R134 – simply turn the key and drive away.
Being a Series 2 example it benefits from the highly desirable last of line updated V585 series engine fitted with Weber Electronic Fuel Injection. Built from 1986 to 1989 there were a total of 214 cars built worldwide of which there were only 22 cars built to the specification of #5466 – making this example truly an exciting opportunity.
