170955528778 eBay item number
Has a pretty good spec
Apart from the Clio V6 style exhaust I really like the look of that.
Ah it's back. Was on pistonheads only a short while ago then sold shortly after now its back up. Bolt on arches ftw though.
This thing has been around for AGES. Used to see it at Combe a lot.
used to be white, was crashed at the ring during a redline feature about 4 years ago, disappeared And returned with the new grey / green colour scheme.
Nice car, cage is monkey spec though. Doesn't even use a front cage, just door bars bolted to the bulkhead :s
This is how it used to look:
And redline did a feature on it too:
Oh I didn't realise this was the same one that was binned at the ring. Still looks ok and would save someone a fortune if the bought this instead of building their own.
I thought it may have been the same car when I was reading the description, and it had white door shuts etc.
I just thought price wise it's not bad for what has gone into it, and I don't know of many track cars that haven't been in the gravel or barrier at some point ........
That is some impact though,all because he was rushing around for the magazine shoot
thats quite some impact..
bought and sold again so soon?
makes you wonder does'nt it
I dont like it! just something about it
On a random note, it's kinda made me want to see a plain matt black s3 now!
Im interested in this ,.....me and a mate are after a toy...was looking at 7s type of thing but this has a roof..... i will do my investigations..
Doooo iiiiitttt.....you know you want to
I'd rather have a roof on track car, just a personal preference of mine having rolled a previous vehicle....... roofs are handy things
binned it showing off lol
Wasnt trying to put anyone off it, more just highlighting that the car has been around for a long time and has a well known history. Used to go well from what I remember back at Castle Combe, although I never came across it on track at the same time, which is a shame.
Mine's also been crashed, so who am I to judge
The guy is refusing to acknowledge it has had a bang.... so for that reason....we are out...
oh really? send him a link to that pic I posted..... it's the same car.
Look closely and you can just make out those dodgy rear light lenses it still wears in the crashed picture. Same car, same home made roll cage, same wheels, same crystal front lights. it wasn't reshelled when crashed, just repaired.
same swirl pot in the spare tyre well
You got some pics from inside from when it was white then Alex? or do you just know the car?
I tried finding the redline article online, but couldn't find it anywhere. I was quite interested in reading it, as the car is apparently very good indeed.
I had the copy of the redline magazine at home somewhere unless its been thrown out. The magazine feature was years ago. I'll try and find it for you if your interested but it'll be a week as i'm off to Norway today.
It looks like he has sold it or had to many questions regarding the crash ...lol
to be honest, it sold about a year ago didn't it? so there's every chance that the guy might not know it's the redline feature car, and he might know nothing about the crash! It was well repaired from what I understood, but who knows. I've never had a good look up close.
Would love to go on track with it at some point! Would be cool if someone on the forum has bought it. Add in a front cage, and redo the exhaust and body colour (I'm sure it's a wrap?) and it'd be pretty awesome.
How much is it up for as I cannot see the link as I'm at work
I expect it was the car I found on PH only back in August - when it was sold for around £6500 (post 6)
Same reg number if you look in the other thread I linked to the and ebay listing too 100% same car as we thought.
The eBay ad said:
yeah, i'll have to take another look at the article - long time ago... probably me mis-remembering
That roll cage is a home made disgrace. 100% not safety devices!
That cage does look a bit suspicious. Even if it is a Safety devices one the mounting is far from ideal without any reinforcement added to the shell, particularly with fairly small feet like that has.
If I remember right I'm pretty sure I know the Journalist who was in the passenger seat when it was crashed, anyone with the magazine about fancy checking if I'm right or not? (I think it was a guy called Chris Pollit). If so then he may well be able to answer a few more questions about it.
what gets me is the door bar arrangement, no front cage, but single door bars which seemingly mount to the B-hoop then just bolt to the bulkhead at the front. Most odd.
Also, I don't like the way the whole rear part of the cage and diagonals mounts horizontally to the sides of the rear arches, bolts there are operating entirely in sheer, and it's on such a weak part of the shell it'd surely just rip in any impact.
its like the 'road' cages they sell.... goes to look for a pic...
Good find Jase!
Vorhees you legend...... I was considering it but he seemed well ignorant in his responses to my questions,
Well excuse me for wanting to know what I could be spending my money on!!!
That cage is some stolen scaffold , cold welded and sticks like glued together
Any one know where the bolt on arches come from? I did email the guy but he never replyed
