If everyone had the same taste the world would be a boring place, but I can’t be the only one thinking this GT3 is very confused? Surely the special point of a GT3 is the performance/handling focus....why th3n would you decide to deck it on some heavy ass air ride? Dont know

I agree and think it's because it's already tainted.

Not sure if it's this car but if it is, it's had more than one accident.
As I say though, I'm not saying it is.

Or this one. Same car?? Can't remember and haven't got time to read through.

Like I say I don't intend to cast doubt over the car for sale. Could very well be a different car. Worth a bit of digging though as there won't be many Zanzibar previously damaged cars about.

Ruined imo, long thread on Pistonheads about that car.

Ha, that's the thread I've linked to above and had to do a bit of digging to find.
Someone's done well to revive that over on P'heads, but cars like that stick in people's memories.
The GT3 world is a small one.

Don’t get me wrong, it looks cool and I can appreciate the work that’s gone into it but should have used a different base car imo.
Pointless exercise on a GT3?
And I’d have no problem owing that at the original selling price! (Before the air ride etc.)
