The Voice of Reason(?)

Too many projects so I won't get to this one for a while...
"One off" sports racer built to UK S2000 specs (more or less).  Custom 2 seat chassis w/Van Diemen RF89 suspension using original geometry.  Currently has a 2.0L 8 valve DOHC Ford "Sierra" motor (approx. 155-160 hp) with LD200 gearbox.  Car was built by Karl Barras in England, imported to Canada and raced in a "Formula Libre" series (CASC Logbook) and then imported to the US by the P.O. 

Gear ratios in car for autox: 14:36 Fixed layshaft 1st / 17:35 2nd / 19:32 3rd / 21:30 4th, spare layshaft and gear sets for Mid Ohio / Nelson Ledges included (15/30 1st, Uppers: 16/35, 18/33, 20/27, 23/28).  2 sets of 6"/8" Compomotive wheels and several sets of "good used" tires (good for track days). 

Gallery of high definition photos here:

Bodywork on car is heavy, but molds for nose/tail section and scoop are included with the car.
Now included with the car 2002 SVT Zetec (108K mile take out) w/stock wiring harness & PCM - Hewland confirms this is a "bolt in" replacement for the Sierra (as far as the transaxle mounting).

Car is a bit large and heavy to run B-Mod at the pointy end of the field as is.  Would make a great sturdy track day car for a LOT less than a Radical/Speeds/etc - slower yes, but much less to own and maintain.
Contact me for more details.

Asking $12,500.  16' V nose enclosed trailer can be packed with the car.

Photobucket's "ad rich" environment seems to make it more flakey all the time, really need to move to another host....
