Description

Unveiled in prototype guise at the 1995 Geneva Motor Show before entering production later that same year the notably aerodynamic and lightweight newcomer made extensive use of aluminium and was powered by a transversely mid-mounted 2.0 litre four-cylinder 16-valve engine allied to five-speed manual transmission. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and 134mph, this rare sight is just 1 of only 200 UK-specification right-hand drive cars which are thought to have been made. Finished in sports blue, this early example was first registered in Portsmouth. We are informed it is offered with a 'huge' service record from new consisting of a stamped service book as well as various invoices including the most recent for timing belt replacement in January 2016. Said to be 'completely unmolested' and in 'fantastic condition' throughout, we are informed 'P25 OPO' will be supplied with a fresh MOT certificate.
