The paint remains highly-presentable with a deep shine that’s somewhat rare for a car that’s lead such a long life in competition. The centre stripe suits this racing aesthetic as does the somewhat crudely finished front splitter (no doubt touched up a few times). It’s had a few grazes here and there, one giveaway (though it could just be Leyland build quality) is the fact that the bonnet pinches the nearside front wing. It’s clearly a seasoned campaigner of classic sports car racing so you can forgive it the odd imperfection.
This GT comes with a near new set of Minator 15-inch alloy wheels, shod in equally fresh set of semi-slick Toyo Proxes R888 tyres. All of the glass – with the exception of the structurally-important windscreen – has all been replaced with lightweight polycarbonate. Sliders allow ventilation to the front with additional holes cut in the rear quarters for same.
Though this car wouldn’t have had rubber bumpers (it missed that horror by seven months) both front and rear bumpers have been deleted; the former making the most of airflow up front via additional brake cooling vents. Weight saving has been taken to a fairly serious level and, according to the vendor, this GT now weighs under 900kg. Drag is reduced by a set of handsome Sebring-type headlamp cowls. It certainly looks the part and we’ve little doubt that it’s a real weapon on track.
