Undoubtably one of the worlds greatest hypercars, manufactured between 2009-10 only 186 of these wild looking cars were ever produced making them a prudent investment for those people who could afford the £270,000 price tag, the SV’s beautiful V12 produces 661 hp and 490 lbf·ft of torque, the car’s weight was also reduced by 100 kg over the standard Murcielago through extensive use of carbon fibre inside and out.
The SV produces a power-to-weight ratio of 429 bhp per ton, included in the extensive list of standard equuipment were the LP 640’s optional 15-inch carbon-ceramic disc brakes with 6 piston calipers. In its June 2009 issue, it’s been estimated that the LP 670–4 SV is capable of accelerating from 0- 62 mph from a standing start in just 2.9 seconds and on to 120 mph in 7.4 seconds and on to a top sped of 212 mph, this is a truly epic car.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SV
We started with the car in the usual fashion, using the normal procedures to ensure that the car was completely free from any contaminants.
Sierra RS500 Cosworth
The RS500 Cosworth is a legendary car, it has a reputation for fearsome power and terrible turbo lag! the RS500 was produced between 1986 and 1992 producing somewhere between 204 and 220bhp in standard guise, in modified guise however considerably more with race spec cars producing some 400 bhp making them very successful on the British and world touring car scenes as well as the WRC and other motorsport arenas.
This particular example came to us as a potential show car, having been extensively modified, bigger turbo and upgraded fuel injection system, AP brakes and infinitely tuneable suspension setup, the car came to us in a nearly but not quite finished state, one of the major issues to overcome was the condition of the cars beautiful solid black paintwork, this area of the car it down somewhat, so along with all the other usual areas this was our first job to tackle.
We recently had the pleasure of having this Aston Martin DB5 detailed and finished with Swissvax Crystal Rock.
The beautiful Aston Martin DB5 finished in Silver Birch paintwork, was made famous as the car driven by James Bond and has to be one of the most iconic cars ever designed, this example was in with us for one of our full correction details with a view to returning the car back to showroom condition.

The car is fully de contaminated from the tyres upwards leaving no area of the car untouched, everything that can be removed is done so enabling us to get to as much of the cars paintwork as possible
The Porsche 997 Carrera S is a drivers car and this one has been owned, driven and loved since new by it’s owner. With 114,000 miles on the clock the owner decided his pride and joy could benefit from some love, and so it was booked in with us for a full Correction Detail. On first inspection we could see the car had suffered at the hands of time and use, the paintwork was badly swirled, the headlight and indicator lenses had become foggy and hazed, the brake callipers had become faded and all 4 wheels were in desperate need of a refurb. So we set about bringing the Carrera back to life!
After the car was washed and decontaminated in the usual way it was straight inside and onto the ramp, the wheels were removed and sent for a much needed refurb. Next we set to work on resurrecting the headlight and indicator lenses Rupes X-cut P1500 and P3000 abrasive pads were used to remove the fog and the lenses were left crystal clear like new.
