Front running 1991 SPEC E30 race car



Very well developed and reliable sorted race car that is a consistent front runner. I’m sure someone with more talent could do even better.
This is a rare car with a slick top (no sunroof). Professionally maintained with all records. Upgraded to latest coil-over suspension in 2018. No money spared in keeping it race ready. This car is ready to race and needs nothing. Just got back from the body shop fixing all the dents and scrapes. Lots of new parts. It has been raced by me for the last 5 years.
Lots of spares including 3 sets of dry tires and one set of wets. All wheels are in almost new condition. Lots of spare parts including ECU and air box (AFM).
