Twice in a week? Well, I couldn’t let this one lie, really. Partly because there’s a lot of R8 love out there at the moment following its 25th birthday shindig at the weekend, and partly because it’ll be gone by Monday.
Nice pre-grille R8s are getting fewer and further between, especially bearing in mind this is a February 1990 example, so when I stumbled upon it during my morning coffee break I thought ‘blimey, that looks pretty smart’. Not the best pics and a very brief listing, but in a subsequent email to the seller I discovered it’s just had a cambelt and full service, comes with a heap of old bills and history and is, apparently, completely rust free.
Honda engine, auto box – a combination that some love and some hate – but there can’t be many Rondas left in this kind of condition. If I didn’t already have an R8 and a serious storage problem, I’d be in there like a shot. If it goes for less than £500, as I suspect it might, someone will get themselves a cracking bargain.
Anyone up for keeping it in the family? Here’s the relevant link…
