Three discreet and fully operational VDO gauges have been carefully placed and consist of oil pressure, voltmeter and quartz clock. Spotless and truly cossetted, an out and out sports machine.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Displacing 2494cc, the legendary straight six cylinder unit from BMW needs little introduction. 170bhp and 222Nm of torque in a relatively lightweight car raise this car firmly into performance car territory and 0-62 and top speed figures of 9.9 seconds and 132mph respectively are more than respectable. A spotless engine bay to delight any enthusiast has been further enhanced by a polished inlet manifold. The unmistakable crisp engine note remains unsullied by the discreet stainless steel exhaust system. The factory optional Electronic Hydraulic (EH) automatic transmission performs faultlessly and offers positive kick down, exactly as it should.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Five genuine light alloy cross spoke wheels with pristine centre caps are in beautiful condition with no curbing scuffs or scratches whatsoever. Only microscopic areas of lacquer lift around the tyre valves can be detected. Quality Michelin Pilot Exalto 205/55 R15 tyres have masses of tread remaining and the spare is shod in the original Pirelli P600 item. Even the often misplaced plastic centre cap removal tool is in the boot area. The anti-lock braking system (ABS) incorporating all round discs offers ample stopping power to this performance contender and straight line steady braking is assuring.
