Drives beautifully and its bodywork is preserved very well and mechanically very strong, cosmetically, paint could in the long term be improved in some areas and the interior re-freshed further but as stated this car is 22 years of age with solid preservation.

If you are genuinely looking for one of these vehicles and understand their specification I do not need to add in or document the long history and specification of these cars here.

The 850R has a good pedigree as a modern classic and as a robust, attractive, performance orientated estate edition inspired by BTCC two wheeled antics, Top Gear reviews and police endorsement up and down UK motorways in T5R form. In short a great car with a strong future value.

“Drive Tastefully” in a TurboBrick if this is of interest.

Please only genuine interest with funds to purchase, this is a good quality honest car.
