Why wouldn't you uprate the stereo? Even sports car owners like to listen to music on occasions.
As for the car, I think it looks amazing.

Shame. Looks immaculate with a nice big motor under the bonnet. Problem is those skirts and wheels!

Not everyone's cup of tea, but amazing nonetheless. It's obvious a lot of money and time has been invested in this, I quite like it, although I have to agree about the hideous skirts, but I like the rest. Oh, I forgot to add, I think a top speed of 220mph is a trifle optimistic!

"if you don't like speed this car is not for you" gotta love the sales patter, if ever i sell mine i think i have to nick this line! hehe

BTW, the exhaust is a Supertrap, used alot on MCs, add more discs for more flow and more noise, reverse for the opposite...

Is it a genuine Griffith ? 22k is nothing for that car !

Its like buying a a 993 in the Porsche world and MGB in the classic car world ,you will not loose a penny .

Think its being a bit padantic calling the Yanky bits on it ,you can always change a few bits ,all the hard work is done !

i would rather buy this car over any of the later variants..

Looks like an early M to me, with some mods to make it look vaguely 60's Griff. Not worth what is going for IMO. Some people are silly enough to believe it is and bid it up.

It started out as a 2500.. But has a Vixen bonnet? And look at the rear arches...

Probably no more modified than some of the cars running around on the club racing circuits back in the 60s and 70s. I suppose the purists will turn their noses up at those too ? rolleyes

I think it has some nice specs, although I would change some things to make it look "better"
now its a bit over the top? its not the nice raw classic look.

for one the wheels have to be different and has to fit better in the wheel arches...
also the side zwellers? have to go...and I would wrap it in a more sinister darkish old TVR color?

Not keen on the side skirts, but otherwise I like that a lot.

The car is probably just relieved someone got rid of that boat anchor originally residing in the nose. wink

yes The chin spoiler might actually be a rather worthwhile addition if it helps retaining some sort of directional stability and the ability to steer at the sort of speeds it would be capable of.

I see no such excuse for the skirts...
