I’m not overly surprised. I guess it is a bit special with bespoke rear suspension, full roll cage, fire suppression system etc built for sprints.
Considering it’s meant to be an FIA I am a bit surprised at a central fuel filler unless that was necessitated by the roll cage design.
Time to revalue our cars guys!?

I nearly bought it for £40k just before getting mine, didn’t because spec just too extreme for Mum to drive!

Now I understand your exclamation.
I think 40k was perhaps a tad low.

I think we all undervalue our cars.

If I’d been looking 2 years earlier, (still yellow!)it was in the high 20’s, hard sell due to extreme spec... now being used as plus points!!!!
