Astra Coupe Turbo 888

laugh











... It's quite startling how much different it is to drive over the Astra Coupe Turbo that I used to have ... better steering feedback & responce, nicer & shorter gear change, better brakes ... suspension is ROCK HARD lol and it's on the deck!, it also has a better clutch ... its just awesome laugh

Seats are amazing, bodykit is extreme and the exhaust gives a nice rumble smile

Problems? ... too damn low!!! lol 120mm clearance from the ground ... eeeek

PS: Sorry for the poor quality pics, their from my phone camera, I'll get some better ones once my ICE is sorted later this week smile

888 was the race bred astra coupe and it contains a bit more "kit" than the normal astra coupe, however isnt more powerful, which is quite strange.

I did the engine, it didnt come like that lol.

888 is the race spec version of the normal Astra Coupe Turbo. It's dropped 60mm over a normal Coupe on Eibach Springs & Dampers, 235/40 tyres on 17" O.Z. Superturismo wheels, wide arch BTCC bodykit & spoiler, black & blue alcantara trimmed reclining Sparco bucket seats, Milltek exhaust ... etc etc etc ... a WEAPON! laugh

888 RR'd the cars after they finished each one and apparently they all gave 215bhp (give or take one or two bhp) ... so they have a bit more power prob cos of the Milltek exhaust and RAMAIR filter but they still have the same ECU mapping as the other Z20 LET engines.

It'll be going to Courtenay at some point for a nice stage 3 remap wink

Triple 8 designed and fitted out the BTCC Vauxhall touring car. I thought Vauxhall were a bit stingey with the extras on this, I was surprised when I saw the broshure! The seats look damn comfy though!

They're also making a 888 Astravan. smile
