Shame he is getting rid, didnt he spend a lot of time and love (and money) in getting it up to such a high standard? It's a bummer when people put so much effort in and then find the chase was better than the catch (if ye get me).

Lovely car, hope it goes to someone who will appreciate it.

Hes put a lot of time into it, but he prefers bikes. Hes after something like a waterbottle or an RD350 again.

I used to have a vitesse yeah, it was a slate grey bluey colour. It was fuin once you had it sideways purely because of how much lock you could hold, you where actually literally going sideways. But i did have the suspension load up once at speed and if the tyre doesnt give way itll lift one side of the car up when it springs back, I felt it lift the inside up and shat meself.
