Pyrenees Black Evo IV Track Car
I have decided that the time may be right to move my track car on due to lack of use.
The car is a 1997 Pyrenees black Evo IV GSR, which I purchased around three years ago from Capt Mike on this forum. The car has around 100k on it but this is a mixture of miles and kph. The car is currently plasti dipped in matt black to help protect the ok ish black paint underneath.
The car is fully road legal, it is due its MOT in the next two weeks which I know it will fly through so very happy to put a full test on it.
I have used this car to complete many a track day in the UK and two trips to the Nurburgring. The car gets used as it should but is well pampered in my ownership itís never spent a night outdoors etc.
I took the car off the road in Oct 17 to refresh the rear underside after reading other peopleís horror stories. This is my fourth Evo which I fully inspected before buying so there was nothing major needed. The car was stripped to bare metal before being repainted using the rust buster range of products epoxy 121 etc. The car was treat to all new bushes sensors etc and all the bolts and arms and shafts etc where refurbished at the same time. The car is by no means concours however there is nothing to hide here and the finish is to a good standard. I have photos of the restoration and any welding needed. There's no wax oil here

To summarise the car is perfect for anyone wanting to jump into an evo and have fun out on track. The car is running just shy of 400/400 and makes for a good laugh and many smiles when driven properly. The car is located in Sheffield and I can be contacted via pm on here.
I have loads of photos of the car and of the underside but the general appearance hasn't changed much since this thread https://www.lancerregister.com/showthread.php?t=572984
The car is still in very occasional use and I will take some new photos tomorrow which I can email to interested parties. The car will be doing the evening session tomorrow at Donnington park if anyone wants a look around it or to see it in action.
Please I don't want any hassle regards the price itís worth it
£8000 with one set of wheels
A deal can be sorted with all wheels, spares and the Alcons.
