Factory built (SBG) 1997 Seat Ibiza Cupra GTI 16V (LHD)

One of only 8 standard bodied cars built by SBG as part of a huge pormotion of the Seat brand during the mid 90's. Six of these were built to a Group N + spec and named 'Super Six' cars and two were built to a Group N spec and used as recce and course cars, these two cars were 'R23 CVV' and 'R24 CVV'. The whereabouts of R23 is unkown sadly, as was R24 until I was lucky enough to find it almost 4 years ago.

The car had been dry stored since it's use by Seat Sport ceased - as part of collection of of ex factory cars aqcuired by a former employee. Since aqcuiring the car I have been slowly rejuvinating her and it was my plan to use her for hillclimbs and sprints to preserve her unique history. Some of the work that has been carried out in my ownership is as follows:

* Gearbox rebuild, with new peloquin lsd fitted.

* Rebuilt brakes with new braided lines fitted.

* New full stainless 2.25" exhaust.

* New AST 5100 dampers fitted.

In terms of the body, the car is as it finished it's career, including remenants of it's livery on the bootlid. Personally I like the history it wears, hence the bodywork not having been a priority of mine. That said this is a very, very clean shell!

I am only selling the car due to an impending house move and would love the car to go someone who appreciates it and will use it. I have found it very difficult to put a value on the car and if a sensible offer is not made I will simply keep the car and the house will suffer!...
