Description

French registration

- In an unusual state of originality
- Meets original specifications
- An iconic model
- No reserve

What is striking when observing this car is its condition: it is strictly in accordance with original specifications, which is extremely rare on this model, and everything has been redone to the last details. This restoration is unusually good thanks to the previous owner, a certain Mr Julien, from the transport company Depann 2000, who had bought the car directly from its first owner.
Disassembling and examining the body revealed that the car had never been in an accident, a testament to its first owner confirming that the car had never raced. The car is now in a state that can be called "concours", with the attention to detail extending to even stickers on the air box or under the hood. The grey cloth interior is like new, the paint is superb and the car is based on its original rims shod with 135/15 Michelin X, in excellent condition. A file full of photos of the restoration comes with the car.
In our review, the counter showed 7,734 km, which corresponds to the distance covered since restoration. The break-in period is therefore just finished! It was in 2010 that the current owner purchased this wonder, probably the most original and most beautiful R8 Gordini 1300 currently on offer in the market.
