I have owned this car for 7 years after buying it off the chap who built it in 2006. I am now selling it because I no longer use it. spent all last year in the garage and only used it this year a couple of times to get it MOT'd and ready to sell. I have started on another project so need the garage.

Since buying the car I have spent thousands of pounds and many hours (large wad of bills to prove the point) upgrading and improving it.

Biggest and most expensive replacement was the engine. out with the tired old SD1and in with a fully rebuilt Range Rover engine. This was built buy http://www. jrv8. co. uk/  package three option. well over £3000 (even more now). Engine and clutch has done about 7000 miles since fitting. Photos and full specification of build will come with car.

Power is supposed to be 200bhp+ I would be more conservative and put it at 180bhp but with loads of torque

Cooling system uprated with a Godspeed 52mm dual core alloy radiator (imported from the states) New Samco silicone hoses and twin electric fans.

Brakes uprated to new 1. 8 discs and pads

Has a brand new exhaust (sounds glorious)

Uprated 60amp alternator

The list of extras is quite long but will list some

Sleepy eye and flash to pass mod

Lumination white dials (green or blue)

Leather arm rest. centre console. nstrument pod. gearstick gaiter and handbrake gaiter (high quality)

chrome air vent surrounds. heater surround and instrument surrounds

Does have a stereo with nice speakers in the doors and headrests but it's never on. why would you?

One off polished stainless steel rollbar

Chrome filler cap

Can't remember the name of the alloys but they're in good condition with Toyo Proxy's with loads of tread

Cobra bonnet scoop (functional)

Electric aerial

polished Momo steering wheel and Jag xk gearknob.

Two chrome butter dishes under bonnet

Toyo Sport oil catch tank and water bottle

Tonneau cover and Windblocker

Box full of receipts

And the all important Red Bull coil cover

This is an import model so overall condition of chassis is good with only surface rust. A bit of rust (about the size of 50p) has started to appear in driver side sill (as in photo) but the rest is solid

Hood is in good condition with clear window. although that is sewn in as I broke the zip.

Body work and paintwork nice condition 7 out of 10 I think would be fair

Power steering can be noisy at low speed (always has been) but have manual rack that will come with car that I was intending to fit.

Battery may need replacing due to lack of use. doesn't always hold the charge. but that could be the fans when left on

Gearbox is not a MX5 box it's Rover SD1 5 speed box so nowhere near as slick. Takes getting used to.

This car is well known and has been to numerous shows and events where it always grabs attention (not for the shy type) you will be asked non stop to pop the bonnet and start it up. Has featured in 'CLASSICCAR' magazine and the OC magazine. also won a couple of prizes and has had over 13000 hits on youtube. This was done when we replaced the engine. been a few changes since then http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=qnOZoGkgSBc

Unless you know how to use a spanner this is not the car for you. this is a hotrod not a MX5 where you can close the bonnet and forget about it (if you want to)

It's an mx5 with an uprated V8 3500cc engine. SD1 gearbox and BMW diff. not the fastest off the line but geared to do about 140mph. and it sounds awesome.

Now the boring stuff. No bids if you have less than 10. no oversea bids even if you're a African princess. no bankers drafts or money exchanges.

CASH ONLY SALE £200 deposit to paypal within 24 hours or it will be relisted

If you want to drive it you buy it. sorry but due to my job I'm only to well aware of false insurance and bad drivers.

Will be happy to take you out but please no tyre kickers. dreamers or time wasters as I have a life.

Thanks for reading.
