    My trusty A3 is back up for sale again as i really need to get rid of some cars :(

    Now a fully running car again ready for track days or late sunday summer eve road blats :)

    Basically car is same as always was, suspension, brakes, wheels, interior, exhaust wise but now runs standard engine with fettled K03s turbo

    Now making 240 Bhp and 270 lb/ft Tqe

    But it now sports a very special Seat Supercopa race tag sealed Ricardo Gearbox with very few miles sporting uprated internals, steel

    Yokohama A048 nearly new road legal semi slicks up front
    Goodyear Eagle very good rears



    SUMMARY


    This car really is a great thing to drive, handles, stops and goes really well on road and track

    Power comes in early and holds to red line due to turbo/manifold mods suported by 3" exhaust

    Corners without body roll due to great set up helped by the fact it is a quattro so rear suspension is a 4 link fully adjustable and independent design

    Stops very well indeed AP-s are the best

    Sounds really good too!

    But what really makes it is very very rare and hard to obtain Ricardo built Supercopa gearbox and Helix paddle full clutch kit

    It pulls the car out of corners and almost makes you think it is still 4wd!

    Body work has few scuffs and scratches but this is not a show car so it never bothered me

    Still has remote central locking and electric windows for few creature comforts as it is a road car too

    Feel free to come and drive the car but most people on here know it and will confirm is a good one

    Recently been at Cgti track day at curby and it managed respectable 30 sec run but to be honest it is more suited to a bigger track

    I am in Blackpool, 07870671133

    Price wise i want 4500 ovno otherwise i will brake it fully this time and sell for parts

    Gearbox and clutch that were recently installed cost 2.5K and that was cheap considering rarity value

    Few pics

    Pay me deposit, take it so it's not in my way and pay rest when you ready :)

    Could possibly take to Inters too

    Also forgot to mention have loads of extras for the car to go with it if wanted

    Another dashboard, door cards, panels in same colour, bonnet, doors, tailgate etc etc drivers door already lightened with Inters chopped out and polycarbonate window in place
