Totally standard, RX-7 in black.

I've been obsessing for over a month now and may have worked up the courage to stump up the cash.

Halfway between stupidly excited and terrified of financial ruin.

I'm not convinced that this one is "totally standard"!

Says on the second like in the ad so they're not hiding it. Based on Lancer EVO Mechanicals apparently with custom bodywork. Looks fun anyway!

An affordable monster for the none millionaires amongst us. Plus its usable, repairable and reliable. And anything that's light with 400 bhp 400 torque is alright with me driving

"Custom built by Dimma in 2015
205 T16 Evo Grp B LHD Proto, Rally, Track, Sprint, Hillclimb, 400bhp, 4WD sequential

Here we have for sale is our Peugeot 205 T16 Evo Group B "Proto", it's road registered and M.O.T.'d until Sept 18 and is perfect for doing Group B Rally Legend events, Trackdays, Sprints, Hillclimbs, Historic Time Attack etc..
It is MSA log booked for sprints and hillclimbs, has passed scrutineering many times for group b demos, but may possibly be log booked for stage rallies with some modifications.

The base is a Mitsubishi Evo rally car, originally built from an RS shell by Motorsport Developments ( MSD ) in 2002 for Mark Higgins, with custom made (by Dimma) Kevlar body panels to make it look like the classic 205 T16 grp B monster of the mid 80's. It's also built to perform like one, but retaining 100% the modern lancer mechanicals, it lost 270Kg in its 2015 conversion. We have the moulds so all the custom parts are replacable.

Driving the car is a joy, the handling is predictable, smooth and it will drift beautifully if that's your style. Its very very quick! From our on board video, we can see that it equalled the fastest time set by the current WRC cars on this years Rally GB Cholmondeley special stage! Thats a lot of performance for not much money, its also proved to be incredibly reliable over the three seasons that we have run it. Its had good maintenance, does not use any water or oil on events, runs on pump fuel and all parts are readily available ( reasonably cheap ) so its very affordable to run. It starts on the key every time and is ready to go and have fun..

Apart from a few scuffs ( tyres and cones) the car is in great condition, it was built to be driven! Shell is solid, no rust, very clean inside etc. Seam welded, full FIA cage, custom made motorsport loom, Carbon interior panels, Recaro seats, new belts, elec plummed in fire extinguisher, full under floor and fuel tank Kevlar guards, Dural plate sump guard, upright hydraulic handbrake, etc etc.."

My obsession of the last couple of weeks - soft mint 500C Twinair with climate control, xenons and blue&me. Can't find the right one, don't want to buy new.

Apparently to be replaced by an aston Martin Valkyrie, no huge loss, as he still has the f1 lick
I assume its him thats commissioned the road legal Vulcan then?

I don’t think so, he’s not mentioned it on any of his social media outlets. He has however mentioned the Valkyrie quite a few times. Seems like a hell of a car. F1 is still staying, he’s said he will never sell it. Still uses it properly too, top man.

After the Z3 interest cooled down, I wasn't able to obsess about any other car. Even a daily. This lack of interesent in owning anything is something that upsets me.

I have a Caddy obsession today...



Wilfully different to a sea of M3/M4's and decent with it.
Not that I could afford any of them but it's nice to wistfully dream. smile

We'll gloss over the diesel BLS I used to own. Good commuter car though that was, it's the antithesis of this stuff.

^ They're never going to get cheaper, y'know. If you want a Z3, find the means to buy one before they accumulate value.

That is lovely! I really do like the e38, it's perfectly proportioned and relatively small compared to modern stuff.
