Um.....................sorry - but no!

Wheels are yuk and those odd stickers (?) on the leading edge of the bonnet would need to go!

£10k? Nah............

Looks like a beast and a half, but it has the following faults:

1. The word "gray" is used to describe the interior, I know not of this colour
2. Far, far too much wood
3. Silly stickers above the lights
4. Somebody has broken it and put the steering wheel on the wrong side. Odd.

Agree, although the things on the edge of the bonnets are vents.

I'm surprised there's room in the engine bay for two turbos
I've had a couple of these and I remember it taking ages to replace the spark plugs because of the lack of space

Not keen on the 90s styling but I'd like to give it a test drive ;)

as above, not a huge fan of the styling choices (guessing the vents are a necessary rather than an optional).. but I would certainly like to have a go!!!
