I challenge you to go quicker for the money!
Intercooler input high pressure duct was split when I bought it - RGS motorsport in Wellingborough built me a custom alloy pipe.
Car also had missing inner arch, and split cooling tower header - both replaced.
All lights failed in first week - due to dry joints in the fuse box.
I got this imported vehicle from specialised dealer and paid 7,500 UK for it. The only thing I had to have done to make it legal in the UK was to convert one of the reversing lights into a rear fog. It is exempt from UK emissions tests.
OK, so it only does 16mpg, and this Efini version will shake your teeth out, but who cares when you can outrun everything bar serious supercars! (and leave puzzled looks in your wake as people you pass try to work out what the devil it is!). These cars are gorgeous :)
Only a handful of dealers are qualified to look at it and most of those won't touch imports, but find yourself a friendly tuning outfit not scared of exotic metal (aluminium in this case) and you'll be OK.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
