Top speed 161mph. 0-60 in 5.5 seconds.

Finished in black with a black leather and fabric interior, it comes with an electric sunroof, electric windows, an original Becker stereo and twin air bags.  Supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate expiring in February 2019, the car comes with its book pack and a complete, fully stamped, service book. The car featured in the Italian magazine Auto d’Epoca and a copy is included in its history file. Odometer reading 240,000 kilometres. Estimated at £18,000 to £24,000.
