Well heres the new runabout. Sold the escort last weekend and used the monies to buy and insure this. Better spending it on another car then dropping it all in the Nissan and never getting any of it back.
The cars not mint at all, but its all about go. The most important thing about the whole car is that the head is off a BTCC car. It sucks through 45 Dellorto's and sounds bloody immense. It absolutely, without a doubt, leaves the 200 for dead. Its absolutely relentless. Im in the process of getting a dyno sheet but the last owner assures me of a genuine 220bhp to the fly, 190 to the wheels. It was timed at 0-60 at 5.7 seconds with a full interior and camping gear inside and did a 14 sec quarter, should be good for low 5 seconds and low 13 second quarters, which ill hopefully test sometime this year.
Heres a bit of a speclist and a few pictures. Ill take it for the obligatory photoshoot soon and get some nice ones.
