If that silver coupe is a Vitesse then it is a turbo Scott. The only non-turbo Vitesses were the Mk1s which all had the 2.7 Honda V6, the Mk2 came along and the 2.0 turbo Vitesse came along. As im sure you know, the early ones were 180bhp, the later ones 200bhp, if memory serves correctly the easy way to tell is dizzy = 180bhp, no dizzy = 200bhp but i can't remember the changeover year. That said, if it was sat in a dealer showroom for a while before being registered, it could easily be an N or even M reg in reality.
It's certainly been lowered, even against normal Vitesse ride height and looks to have been parked on grass so expect both sills to be rotten, inside and out, possibly the doors too.
I have a pair of doors in good nick if you want them, you'd just have to spray the rest of the car to match! (BRG :P )

Dollysprint Dave could almost certainly tell you more about the exact age of the car as he has (or had) something that will look up the VIN from the reg number and work out when it was actually made and the exact spec.

I notice there's also a Vitesse Sport fastback in the listing, that is the 200bhp version but from the "changeover years" when they made the standard Vitesse (180) and Vitesse Sport (200bhp) before they dropped the basic 180 and just had the 200bhp Vitesse.
Cheers,
Dave

From GOV.uk
Date of first registration June 1997
Year of manufacture 1997
Look like the 200 hp one after all.
Pity he is selling as a job lot or I'd bid for the silver Coupe and the Green Vitesse Sport!

That might well be Scott but if it sat in a dealers compound for two years as was commonplace back then, it could be a 1995 model. See if Dave appears and offers any info on the reg/VIN number thing he's got.

What i'd suggest you do is make contact with the seller and ask your details be passed to the winning bidder as you're interested in buying two of the vehicles but have nowhere to store more. That could be a good way of doing it, the winning bidder would save on tranposrt costs for two cars and make a profit almost immediately.
Cheers,
Dave

I have just left a message with the seller!
Actually I do have room for them all, but transport may be an issue for 21! Let's see what the seller says...

I won't tell him if you dont! :P :wink: :D

Good luck with it, hopefully you'll be able to get those two and make one good one out of the two with plenty of spares to go round! :wink: :D

Dave

Might be worth contacting the seller again Scott with a view to just buying the two you're intersted in, would make the rest of the job lot easier to sell and get you the ones you want.
Cheers,
Dave
