That is a good price. It costs a fair bit in postage to import these from Aus

Hope it wins it race.

Saw this when I took my Chim for it's MOT it sounded glorious. We discussed whether it needed a dual plane manifold or not. Apparently the owner would not object 🙂 It runs 4 dcnf weber carbs and makes 300+ bhp which is remarable for a naturally aspirated 3.5 litre.

Was it noiser than my cobra??

Nice piece of kit

Beautiful

Awesome!!! What an honour to it must be to work on such historic machinery 👍🏻👍🏻😎😎

I bet that's a feisty drive!!

Wow! What a car! Shame there was no video to listen to it.

Is there a boot to put my fishing tackle?😁

Naomi Perkins show Tony this, this is what they do

LS3? Another 300 lbs at 1500rpm🙂. Acceleration from 30mph must be blistering.

70 plate and modding it already.. Nice

One of the best exotic supercars out there today. Makes yer bits tingle.. 😱

Doesn't it also hold a record for the quickest stopping time?

Well done guys
