Dear Forum,

 

Unfortunately the time has come to sell my beautiful Vx Turbo.

I have owned it since 2014, however since a change in my partners job means I have to do school runs so have little time to use the car. I have probably done less than £1000 miles in the last year alone!

I am probably going to have to go 4 seats in order to have performance again.

 

 

This is a beautiful Vx Turbo, well known to the Vx forum. 

It has done 62k miles and MOT expires April 2018

 

It has had extensive sensible modification. It has an engine with bulletproof internals, uprated suspension and 4 pot AP racing brakes to stop it. 

This is a very fast car, it weighed at 915 kg with approx 360 bhp/tonne. So this is serious power/weight with only a few exotic cars faster that this.

 

The car was fully refurbished in December 2015 at Datum Motorsport with full clams off and complete rebuild. Initially I had planned just for a respray, but after seeing minor issues once the clams were off decided to fully refurbish it as the intention at that time was to keep the car life long.

 

The refurbishment cost £10000 alone, I have documented all the work and have full receipts

 

I wanted an 'exotic' paint job and initially was going to have Mclaren Volcano Orange but the respray would have cost £10k alone and would have been very costly to maintain on a road car. I decided to go for high end BMW Sakhir Orange only available on select recent 'M' Cars. it has almost pearlescent effect and colour changes depending on lighting and the angle you look at it from deep red/orange to bright yellow/orange.

This can easily be seen in the pictures.

 

I am having BIG PROBLEMS embedding images spent two hours on this and very frustrated

 

This will let me embed and see images on th preview pane but then wont let me use 'that image extension' when posting

 

so here's a link to my album

I have also many more photos videos etc

 

The price for sale does not even touch the total cost of purchase and refurbishment which cost me total £28k, but this is the way with cars I have learnt over the years, this is a very good value and sorted VX220 turbo

 

Price is £16500 ono

 

please phone

This will be going on Pistonheads within the next two weeks, this really is a unique highly maintained and one of the fastest Vx220 turbos available.

Please no test pilots or time wasters, I have limited time for viewings, weekends only and of course will only part with the car once monies are fully cleared.

 

Joe

Agree, I was waiting to see £18k+ for that, makes it a bargain at £16.5k.
