Something to know:
Some of these cars up to a certain engine number suffer from a well documented Variator issue. This has been addressed preemptively by Shiltech, a specialist. Look for this if you are buying one of these cars, check the engine number and don't take the sellers word for it, it is a very costly fix

Maintenance outside of service:
All discs, pads and handbrake shoes have been replaced less than 3000 miles ago. All tires are Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and are all brand new

The car has a Larini X-Pipe exhaust which is absolutely epic, the car has a very similar engine to the Ferrari 430 and the sound can only be described as incredible, easily the best sounding car I have ever heard.

I have spent 3500 upgrading the truly terrible radio / sound system. The original system had an unusable nav and no way of connecting an iPod, MP3 player, phone, no Bluetooth etc. I took the car to Auto-Audio in Park Royal (which was jammed full of Aventadors and Ferraris etc) and they installed a Pioneer F88DAB head unit in a bespoke grille which has a 7" screen, Apple Car Play, Android Auto, Bluetooth, inbuilt navigation etc. They installed a reversing camera which is needed as the car is large. Also Morel component speakers front and Morel Coaxial speakers rear, with all the sound deadening in the doors etc, plus a very tasty Genesys amplifier running it. Cost was painful but it sounds incredible and the functionality is great.

Always happy to talk over with any interested parties, show you round the car, or take you out as a passenger. 07775 444439
