It will be sad to see it go but I’ve enjoyed my ownership and its time to say goodbye.
A 400bhp car in London is not practical anymore especially when I don’t have a drive or garage. The previous owner had a garage and that’s where it spent most of its life.
The car runs beautifully and I’ve never actually driven it to its full potential. It’s been kept to high standard. I have loads of receipt for the work that’s been carried out and loads of money spent on it to keep it to a high standard. It’s never let me down in the life of its ownership.
If you have any questions then please feel free to ask.
No time-waster or tyre kickers.
No test drive unless cash up front.
Car is located in London
