Car of the Month March 2012

  Submitted by Mark Slade

This month’s car belongs to Mark Slade and features many modifications.

Originally this car was a two-tone VS but was re-sprayed around 15 years ago in Ferrari red.  Externally, this car features 1300 bumpers, a Ferrari style front grill and 15” split-rim alloys.  The car is lowered and has a fully adjustable Leda coilovers.  Aiding the chassis are box section steel bars to strengthen the sills.

The car still retains the original VS black leather interior but with a Momo steering wheel and a two 10” subwoofers behind each seat.  For weight distribution, the fuel tank has been moved to the front luggage compartment.

The engine has a ported head and Kent fast-road camshaft.  Breathing is enhanced with a K&N filter, a four branch Ansa exhaust manifold and a custom exhaust with two outlets either side of the rear.  Tarox brake discs are also used.
This car is to receive an MOT shortly after a seven year rest.  Expect to see it at the National!
