History

The car was SVA’d when build was completed in 2001, and registered on a 1975 age related plate as a consequence of having demonstrable provenance to a donor Ford Escort.

The car remains road registered and can be tax’d and MOT’d.

Tax is free due to historic status.

The car was converted to a 200bhp Rover K series in 2004 before competing.

The car was then converted to a 306bhp Duratec in 2018.

It has done somewhere around 4,000 miles in total.

The car has been sprinted and hill climbed and is believed fully legal for RAC MSA approved circuit racing and speed events in UK.



The car is currently sorn with no MOT but can easily be MOT'd if the buyer wants as all the lights etc are present and working.
 
 
Can be delivered anywhere in the UK.

I could believe it. Big power tuning on NA engines has always been hugely expensive. I don’t think most realise just how much! Especially from one of the top engine builders.

I was quite amazed too. Getting a 2.0 Duratec to 250bhp isn't too bad. Those extra 50bhp really cost you a lot.

Yep, getting the old XE’s - a really tunable engine, though ultimately, not quite as capable as the Duratec of really big figures, would take around the £10/12k mark to around 250 ish bhp, but then to try and get up to that 300 bhp mark... tbh, I never dared to ask, but not just a few grand more, that’s for sure!

Sorry to drag a bit off topic but is that a standard westfield v8 bonnet? It just looks like a bigger scoop?
