This will either make you go weak at the knees, or utterly give up on your own car.

I want my vert to be like this. I haven't got the wallet for it though. A thing of beauty.

I was OK with this until I saw the underside.

A thing of beauty but much modified. The Turbo S was LPT but this has HPT dash and a red box APC for a start.

Would still have it though....

Turbo S was always FPT 175 bhp.

It was the S Turbo that was LPT @ 145bhp

Whoops, you are of course correct! :D

Still shouldn't have a red box APC though :D

Sorry, Nick. A Turbo S with a cat - yes, it should :wink:

For those coveting the underside - yes, it looks lovely but how long would it look like that if you actually used the car? And if you don't use it, what's the point?
Granted, it all looks like it would last a while.

Think I will sit quietly in a corner! :oops:

Think I need to brush up on my c900 specs - I blame age! Thanks Bill

If we're going to nitpick, now we've agreed about the Red Box (also one on my CAT Turbo S, though now replaced with modified blackbox), shouldn't this be running blue/green coolant rather than the modern red stuff.

And, the wheels look far more deep-dished than I think the c900 ones were. Are they running 9000 15-inch wheels which have a deeper rim depth?
