Guide price: £75000 - £85000. Sparkling 'Option M491 Turbo-look' with only one owner and 30,000 milesIn superb condition with excellent panel gaps and almost flawless paintwork Black leather interior in excellent original conditionComprehensive owners file containing the full service history from new  Possibly the ultimate version of the 3.2 Carrera was the 'Option M491 Turbo-look' or 'Supersport' as it later became known in the UK. Initially, Option M491 was only available on a Coupe and had to be ordered through the "Special Wishes" programme, but this was later extended to include the Targa and Cabriolet in 1985, before becoming an official model available from dealers in 1986. From 1987 onwards, these dramatic versions were known as SSE (Supersport Equipment), and the cars in this final three year run up until 1989 were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 Getrag gearbox.   M491 was a popular option offering the "macho" good looks of the Turbo without the mechanical complexities. However, it was not cheap adding over £10,000 to the cost of a standard variant by the end of the model's life in 1989, possibly explaining the relatively small build numbers. The SSE spec also included a limited slip differential, the stiffer suspension and superior braking from the 930 Turbo, a wrap around deep chin-spoiler, the famous "tea -tray" rear spoiler and wider Fuchs wheels. The rarity of Supersport models is undeniable, especially in right-hand drive and official figures are hard to come by, however, a respected source quotes that just 651 C16 (UK-supplied) M491 cars (including all Coupes, Targas and Cabriolets) were manufactured between 1984 and 1989.   The Guards Red example offered here is one of just 220 C16 (UK specification), right-hand drive, Supersport Targas produced. It has been enjoyed by just one owner from new and is in remarkable condition inside and out. It was purchased in 1989 by the current owner directly from Swinford Motors in the Midlands and has an indicated 30,000 miles from new. The car remains in superb condition with excellent panel gaps, almost flawless paintwork, a smart black leather interior and a very tidy engine bay. The service record accompanying this car can be regarded as substantial, being backed up with paper invoices from new. Within the owner's file are some old MOT certificates, the original book packs, and a spare set of keys.  In summary, this is a superb example of these collectable classics, whose looks and performance inspired a generation, and considering the extremely low mileage, single ownership, and complete service record, is on offer at a very realistic guide.
