    Yeah the T-5R was the homologation to the BTCC success and had the 5 spoke alloys in graphite (Titans) available 94-95 then they re-badged it as a 850R which had 7 spoke graphite alloys and was slightly softer.

    Standard the car had 250hp (Manual) and 240hp (Auto) stiffer suspension and a different front bumper and better interior with alcantara seat inserts.

    Love SAM 1 mine finished with 380hp and near 400Lb/ft she is smooth.

    SAM 2 is my daily drive and is much better now "Chip N Spin" worked their magic on it.

    SAM 3 is smashing, but no not ex-plod (see her spec) Really pleased so far cant wait to get over 400hp out of her !!
