Bodywork & Interior
A professional bodyshop completed the work with a very high quality respray. All outer trim, bumpers etc were repainted in the correct satin black. The interior is in excellent condition throughout and the very rare “fishnet” Recaro seats are as clean as you will find - no rips or sun damage. The dash top is also excellent with no cracks.
Mechanically, all running gear components were stripped, cleaned and repainted. Nothing was refitted in a rusty state. The engine and suspension is upgraded to make this 3.0s very quick and really stand out from the crowd.
