Hi, I've been offered a gto, j Reg, which has a 3.0 v6 24v twin turbo engine with manual box, (is it 3000GT)? Anyway, was wondering if anyone on here knew anything about them and what they were like as I've never even seen one.

?

After watching hammond on top gear owning one i'd get it, lots of car, but lots to go wrong, The main thing is that the turbo's are boosting together and it doesnt have hgf.

What does electronically actuated spoiler mean?
And are these really 300bhp with 0-60@5.5 secs?

nice cars, autos can be a bit dodgy, make sure turbos are ok, head gaskets are diy-eble if you are a mechanic, i would so a bit too much for a novice. ive worked on a few and looked at one for myself 2 years ago but went with a 300zx instead. i think i may know the car your on about if its local. If its the one i know of he wanted a bit too much when i asked about it. what does he want if you dont mind me asking?

It's a non runner, smashed screen, seized brakes, oxidised paintwork, someones tried stealing it but it all there.
Is it the one?
Was it running ok when you knew it?

The old man looked at these back in the day.

Very complex cars by all accounts. Early-day electronics.

Great cars, and a lot for the money - but potential for ruinous running costs I reckon.

You can pick these up from £800 - £1200 for a tidy one, if you can afford the insurance go for the big brother the GTO or 300ogt on a grey import (not recommended) far quicker car 3l twin turbo rivalled the zx in its day but didn't have such a short wheel base
