      Unlike scout_ire's epic little beasty, this one is almost bone stock, with the only change being the wheels being non-standard.
      Bought from a classic car restorer, the body is immaculate, and al big engine jobs are done (timing, water pump, dizzy, ECU). So it's a blank canvas.

      Very thorough restoration:



      Now tucked up in the garage:

                    Excellent choice, Love these in red and you were lucky to find one in such good condition, I have considered getting the S660 at some point which is the spiritual successor to this one. Well wear. Also appreciate the video breakdown as it really gives a good overview of your car.

                        Are those S660's turbo or NA?
