But colour is somewhat inconsequential here, because beneath the nail varnish red paint lies a 4973cc V8 with 335hp. And while it's not the 6.0-litre V12 flagship of the range, that makes it a pretty darn beefy limo and a heck of a lot of both engine and car for Shed money.
What more could you want for £995? Well, cruise control that worked would be nice, but other than that this has got to be one of the most specced-up SOTWs we've ever featured. Combine that with the V8 lump, and big barge shed-cred and you've got a pretty tempting package
