See stars at Classics over Sands 7th August in Grange

Originally owned by BONO of U2 fame, this fantastic Lamborghini Espada clearly predates Bono’s current green credentials. With a thirsty V12 fed by no less that 6 Weber Carburettors, this is one expensive beast to run, at circa ten mpg (yes 10)! In its day the Espada was the fastest 4 seater car on the planet (156mph) and retailed at twice the price of a Rolls Royce.

So make a date in your diary to see this fantastic car, along with nearly 300 other amazing classics.


This gorgeous 1929 Morgan three wheeler, has been owned by its current keeper since October last year and is another of the interesting vehicles entered for Classics over sands on Sunday 7th August.

Morgan introduced the “Super Sports Aero” model as the top of their range, at the October motorcycle show in 1927, fitted with a water cooled overhead valve 1100cc JAP v twin engine, and, as all vintage Morgans, fitted with a 2 speed chain transmission, using sprockets and dogs, rather like the Frazer Nash. The model was advertised as capable of 80 mph. It was with this model, fitted with a racing JAP engine, that Gwenda Stewart attained 115mph at Montlhery in 1930. This Morgan has been fitted with an engine similar to Gwenda Stewarts’ and thus (in theory) capable of much more than 80 mph!! although the owner has not been brave enough to drive it at that speed yet, although, I’m told, it does accelerate up to the legal limit very easily.

High Society jazz band at Classics over Sands

Once again the High Society Jazz band will be attending Classics over sands on Sunday 7th August, which is probably their longest running “fixture”! However, like our own Classic cars, they can also get rusty, but I’m told their performance will be rust free and highly polished. So make a date in your diary to attend OR enter your Classic vehicle, before we run out of space.

From Morgans to Lambo’s

With OVER 150 cars already entered, here is a flavour of some incredible vehicles you can look forward to seeing.

Amongst the oldest entries in Classics over sands on Sunday August 7th are a couple of similar cars to those owned my my Grandfather pre-war. The first, a 1929 Morgan Super Sports Aero, still used extensivly and a superb example of the marque. Also, but very different, a 1931 Austin 7, known as Jane, one of the cars that saved the Austin Motor Company.

At the other end of the age spectrum, we’ve a 1989 Range Rover, once owned by Queen drummer, Roger Taylor. With an open top and powered hood, this really is a “one off”. Another “famous name” car is a Lamborghini Espada from 1994, owned by none other than Bono of U2 fame.

If you haven’t got around to entering yet, do it now, so you don’t forget!
