2009 McLaren Mercedes SLR 722S
We would like to take a minute to re-introduce one of our all time favorite vehicles at our Distinct Collection. Introduced in 2009 by Mercedes and McLaren, this was by no means a regular SLR and like all special supercars, was limited to a mere 150 units worldwide. This vehicle is not only an SLR but it brings with it racing heritage from Stirling Moss and is dubbed the 722S.
The SLR sports a 232 kg (510 lb) hand-built 5,439 cc (5.439 L; 331.9 cu in), supercharged, all-aluminium, SOHC V8 engine. The cylinders are angled at 90 degrees with three valves per cylinder and lubricated via a dry sump system. The compression ratio is 8.8:1 and the bore and stroke is 97 millimetre (3.82 in) and 92 millimeters (3.62 in), respectively. The Lysholm-type twin-screw supercharger rotates at 23000 revolutions per minute and produces 0.9 bar (13 psi) of boost. The compressed air is then cooled via two intercoolers. The engine generates a maximum power of 626 PS (460 kW; 617 hp)@6500rpm and maximum torque of 780 N·m (580 lb·ft)@3250-5000rpm
The SLR also features active aerodynamics; there is a spoiler mounted on the rear integral air brake flap. The spoiler increases downforce depending on its angle of elevation (angle of attack). At speeds above 95 km/h (59 mph) the spoiler/brake automatically raises to 10 degrees (15 in 722 edition), when demanded via the driver's switch, the elevation can be increased to 30 degrees (35 in 722 version) for increased rear downforce, at the cost of increased steady state drag, also when the driver applies the brakes the spoiler raises.
Only 150 examples made of this unique roadster and we have been priveledged to aquire 2 in the past year. This 722s is finished in Antimone Grey and was one of the last remaining SLR 722's left BRAND NEW in the world. This vehicle has delivery mileage and as always can be delivered to any port of call. Don't miss one of the last chances to own this supercar as new, flawless and impeccable only from TAC's Distinct Collection. Please contact us with your inquiries.
2005 Porsche Carrera GT (Gemballa Mirage GT) -- SOLD --
Simply a sight ot be seen. As if being a simple Porsche Carrera GT wasn't a rare sight, at TAC, we stepped it up a notch bringing a true Gemballa Mirage GT to the marketplace. This Mirage was built in Germany by Gemballa themselves and was owned and operated in Canada. Only a handful in existence, this is your chance to be one of the few in the world to drive such a special vehicle.
The Carrera GT engine is a dream. A meaty 5.7 litre V10 boasting 612 horsepower. What more could one want? More power of course. By modifying the engine management electronics, Gemballa has been able to squeeze out a further 60 bhp of power and 15 lb ft more torque for the V10, slicing off 0.1 seconds off the time it takes to go from 0 to 62 mph. The added performance has also been aided by a new, fully stainless steel exhaust system that now resounds through four tail pipes instead of the standard two. Gemballa has positioned the two extra tail pipes where the reverse and fog warning lamps used to be. The tuning specialist has relocated the two lamps to beneath the rear diffuser.
Even in an economic climate that did not favor products in this segment of the market, Porsche’s V-10 powered supercar has sold in unprecedented numbers. More than 1,270 Carrera GTs have been sold since its introduction in late 2003. To date, 604 have found homes in North America. This figure represents a greater number than the total production of the McLaren F1, Ferrari Enzo, and Pagani Zonda models combined.
Once again, a Distinct vehicle at TAC Auto Gallery in Vancouver. Available for sale to a world wide audience as shipping is available to all ports of call. Any Carrera GT is a staple in many prestigious collections in the world, this Mirage GT is in a collection on its own. Please contact us with your inquiries.
1994 Jaguar XJ220 -- SOLD --
As Jagaur’s first production supercar, the XJ220 was a bold step for the British company. Looking at the company’s history, you would have to stretch back to the XK120 to find an equally impressive machine. During the forty years between these models, there are many LeMans winning racecars and striking styling concepts, but nothing that pushes the same thresholds of performance while maintaining production readiness.
Eventually the XJ220 would become the fastest Jaguar and the fastest production car in the world, reaching 217 mph. Other accolades include a first in class at LeMans and a full production of over 200 cars.
To this day, this special vehicle is displayed in models, posters, and images throughout the internet capturing the eyes of many enthusiasts. There are faster vehicles, better built and much more refined yet this Jaguar still remains a legend.
It seems a tradition at TAC to find only the most distinct vehicles in the world. This Jaguar was no exception. With only 2000 original kilometers and fully street legal in Canada, our Jaguar is complete, fully serviced and ready for a new enthusiast.
We are pleased to offer such a beautiful vehicle for our clients. Easily shipped world wide, this car is a must have for a true collector. Interested parties, please contact us.
2008 Lamborghini Reventon 3/20 -- SOLD --
Simply put, this car is a sight to be seen. One of only 20 in existence and the only one in Canada ready for immediate delivery. You are looking at a 2008 Lamborghini Reventon, car number 3 of 20. This car is the epitome of Sant' Agata design and development and is ready for the next collector to enjoy for many years to come.
The Lamborghini Reventón is a mid-engine sports car that debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is the most expensive Lamborghini road car to date, costing one million euros. Its top recorded speed was recorded in Los Angeles, California at 340 kilometres per hour. The official press release stated that only 20 vehicles would be sold to the public, with one additional car (marked as 0/20) produced for the Lamborghini Museum. Each Reventón is clearly stamped with its number in the sequence of 20 between the driver's and passenger's seats. Despite the exterior being new, almost all the mechanical elements (including the engine) are sourced directly from the Murciélago LP640. According to the official press release, the Reventón exterior styling was inspired by the fastest airplanes. To emphasize this, Lamborghini staged a race between a Reventón and a Panavia Tornado fighter plane on a 3 km long runway. The Reventón was in the lead for most of the race, but the Tornado caught up in the last few feet of the race.
The V12 catapults the Lamborghini Reventón from 0 to 100 Km/h in 3.3 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 330 Km/h. It reacts with the eagerness of a racing engine to input from the right foot, revving to 8,000 rpm and beyond, and performing a symphony that sends shudders along the spine. The deep booming bass, the powerful mid-range and the exultant horn section play music that, once heard, can never be forgotten.
A unique paint finish completes the razor sharp design language of the Lamborghini Reventón. For this exclusive special edition, designers have created a new shade of matt grey called Reventón Grey. As for the Reventón Roadster, which is a slightly different shade of grey, this is a matt paint finish that, in the sunlight, displays an unexpected impression of depth thanks to its special metal particles.
This distinct vehicle is ready for a distinct owner. All books and records, keys and promotional materials including a Reventon backpack and Flight Recorder are complete in this 550KM pristine vehicle. Interested parties, please contact us.
1989 Lamborghini LM002 -- SOLD --
You are looking at a TAC Auto Gallery distinctive collection product. The Lamborghini LM002 is an SUV that was designed by the Lamborghini automobile company between 1986 and 1993. The LM002 was an uncommon departure for Lamborghini that, at the time, was primarily known for high-performance grand tourers and sports cars.
From the cabin, you might think you're in a Countach, except that the windshield is as big and vertical as a Times Square billboard. The aromatic leather makes you think you're in an expensive handbag, and you'll feel as cramped as you would inside a Fendi. Squeezed into the driver's seat-one of four supernarrow, supportive buckets that were designed for someone whose posterior is smaller than yours-you'll have a little, three-spoke Nardi steering wheel stuffed between your knees. The wheel is canted so the top of its rim is only millimeters from the instrument panel, leaving barely enough room for your fingers. And yet the tall gearshift lever is located what feels like two car widths to your right across a vast cabin. The engraved knob atop the shifter shows a five-speed pattern with a dogleg first (down and to the left), just like in the Countach.
The body panel of this truck is a mix of both aluminum and fiberglass. However, due to the beefy steel tube frame and huge wheels and tires, the LM002's weight adds up to just under 6800lbs!
The LM002 runs a 5,2L DOHC V12 motor, the same motor found under the hood of a Lamborghini Countach. Massive filters residing under the huge hood bulges feed clean air to six dual-barrel Weber carburetors, and the result is 455 hp, 35 hp more than in the low-slung, exotic sports car. Despite its weight, the LM002 hustles to 60 mph in only 7.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 118 mph, according to contemporary road tests. Those figures were mind-blowing twenty years ago, and they're still impressive by today's truck standards.
This street legal LM002 is a fully optioned, white on red truck, and it is ready to insure in Canada for street use and offered for sale to a limited few. Interested applicants, please contact us.
2004 Maserati MC12 -- SOLD --
An exclusive masterpiece! One of 25 for the year, in traditional Maserati Blue and white, this is a true Hypercar. You are looking at a TAC Auto Gallery distinctive collection product. This 2004 Maserati MC12 is one of the finest examples of this rare vehicle in existence.
Even though the car is designed as a homologation vehicle and is a modification of a racing car, the interior is intended to be luxurious. The interior is a mix of gel-coated carbon fibre, blue leather and silver Brightex, a synthetic material which was found to be too expensive for the fashion industry.
The body of the car, made entirely of carbon fibre, has undergone extensive wind tunnel testing to achieve maximum downforce across all surfaces. As a result, the rear spoiler is two metres (79 in) wide but only 30 millimetres (1.2 in) thick, the underside of the car is smooth, and the rear bumper has diffusers to take advantage of the ground effect.
The MC12 sports a 232 kilogram, six-litre (5,998 cc/366 cu in) Enzo Ferrari-derived V12 engine, mounted at 65°. Each cylinder has four valves, lubricated via a dry sump system, and a compression ratio of 11.2:1. These combine to provide a maximum torque of 652 newton metres at 5500 rpm and a maximum power of 630 PS (460 kW; 620 hp) at 7500 rpm.
This street legal MC12 has been fully upgraded, serviced with a fresh set of Pirelli P-Zero Corsa System tires. Ready to insure in Canada for street use and offered for sale to a limited few. Interested applicants, please contact us.
