|Mid engined Cinquecento V6 project|
I've been working on this car for several years now, having built a couple of bec's previously.
It badly needs finishing and using but I don't have any time and not sure whe n I realistically will have so... wimper... I might have to sell it...
I'm a mechanical engineer and I built it with a lot of thought and tlc, so its not a random cut 'n shut bodge job.
You be buying a one off machine with all the hard work done:
-custom cage in T45 steel, all tig welded with widened suspension all round with care for roll centres, spring rates etc.
-ALfa V6 12v engine & box installed, with wiring figured out so its ready to connect up and run!
-Stainless tug welded axhuast system running "back to front" - exits from front bumber, with 3 x stainless silncer boxes built in. All mounted and done.
-Twin radiators up front with all stainless pipework fabricated.
-Mr2 cable gearshift mounted in fabricated aluminium box, mounted to shell. Other end has fabricated bellcranks made, so 90% of gearshift finished.
-Fabricated twin bias pedal box with hydraulic clutch cylinder, mounted to shell
-fabricated hydraulic fly off handbrake
-Corbeau Revolution seat (needs subframe)
-ATL foam filled race fual cell, mounted under bonnet
-Enkei 16" wheels on rear with good tyres
-MR2 mk3 15" wheels on front with brand new tyres
-widened bodywork - wheel arches cut out with new steel arches welded in. Widened bumpers. Requires some finishing.
-Support from me with anything you need to know until its finished!
Hundreds of hours of work have been put in, it needs bodywork completing & painting, then assmbly with a few minor bits of fabrication left to complete, but almost everything done and ready to bolt back together! Then some wiring, plumbing in brakes, clutch and fuel, and thats pretty much it!
happy to answer any questions, car is stored in lock up in Edinburgh.
Offers in eccess of a several thousand pounds please, and no time wasters - if I had lots of spare time I wouldn't be selling it! ;-)

Great fun for a trackday newbie like myself, lots of space to push things close to and above the limit and an interesting layout. Lovely sweeping corner at the top end and a selection of slow but interesting technical areas.
My only grumble would be that the track consumed too much of my tyres :)

Drove one for the first time on my ARDs test at Silverstone and didn't like it - especially when it rained. Little power, and I just don't get all this talk of "balance" - it's rear-engined, FFS, AND the weight is high in the chassis!

Bl**dy awful, I had the GTI and any claims it may lay to being a drivers car are completely unfounded. Limp steering, lacklustre brakes, body roll from hell, zero feedback from the throttle or any of the pedals come to think of it, hellish visibility (my Elise is better), seats that neither myself (5' 10") or my wife (5') could adjust to suit, same problem with the steering adjustable rake but not reach. A/C controls with the most confusing and difficult layout I have ever seen that automatically switches itself on and off, the radio did the same too.
All the buttons were tacky and plasticky and it made my Elise feel well-built with numerous squeaks and rattles after only a month of ownership. I have never been more dissappointed by any car (including my 1.0l Metro).
Top that off with the god-awful service I received from Peugeot Contract Hire and Peugeot Finance (clueless muppets by the bucketload) and it had to be my worst car owning experience ever.
Put it this way I contracted the car for 3 years, after 8 months I paid them to come and take it away. Though Peugeot still send me invoices, well I said they were muppets.
