It's like that wide metal arched Astra that had a supercharged 3.2 V6 in it. Dodgy bit of wiring and the whole thing went up in smoke! Must be gutting for the owners of cars like this. Let's just hope this sort of thing doesn't happen with the owners inside!

This one:


Horrible monstrosity it was, I don't think it was ever driven, or even if the engine worked or not. I hated that car, and was chuffed when it went up in smoke.



Even worse, they tried to sell it on ebay for 10 grand (after it was fire damaged). Nobody bidded on it.

That Astra was a V8 and was something like 400bhp, although it was never used and never to be intended for use on a track - I too am glad it burnt

that astra had a pretty nifty interior,but the rest was an utter waste, no need for THAT much ICE, no need for wheels that big, the bodykit is too OTT,the DTM kit would of been nice, and as for the engine,in an undrivable car,why????!!!!!

Now that scooby,thats a daily driver, i just love the view from the drives seat (altho i dont agree with the aftermarket rev-counter infront of the standard one,waste of money)
