Hi there.

Does anyone recognize this LE and know of its history?

Thanks

I’m aware of that car

Original reg is T49 VOU, I’d suggest you run the mot history first.

Other than that I believe it was owned by a guy who worked at the Mercedes f1 team. It had a forge engine and all the bits. It was there subsequently bought by a chap who removed all the trick bits and fitted a standard engine setup etc and then found its way to a ‘specialist’ in Bedford who seems to be trying to selling it for an obscene amount of money when it was sold on eBay earlier this year for around £3k

I suspect it will have been heavily under sealed so if you go and view it be on your guard

This is Stevo's old LE, I worked on it for many years and know since he sold up it's had the engine changed to a standard lump.

Further down I spotted this,

I believe I spoke to the owner and his good lady at Joe's FCCS Anniversary event a few years back. Hoping it fetches what you want for it sir!

A Plus has appeared on Ebay, looks very nice but advert quite strange as asking price states £45K! If you read it it must be a misprint, it's the guy in Bedford who breaks a lot of coops.

You're not referring to Auto sportivo by any chance?

I have seen that Red Win Plus advertised, I just can't make head or tail of the condition. Would need to see it close up and have a good look and underneath.

I am trying to figure out if Antz at AutoSportivo is the same guy as polgavitko?

I thought the tone of the eBay advert for the plus was quite…….aggressive?

It's appeared this morning for £4,750 which has to be worth a look?
Doesn't sound altogether welcoming!

It is. Scroll down to the bottom of the advert and it has the business information there
