This car will be an awesome buy for someone looking for this updated model of EL XR8. I really don’t want to sell this car but unfortunately it has to go so that I can purchase my new F6 Typhoon R spec. A lot of money has been spent on this car and all fairly recently so all of the modifications / work done is pretty much new. Whoever buys this car will be extremely happy with it. The car is serviced regularly every 10,000 kms and also every six months as it is not driven very often. The car has only averaged 10,000 kms a year since it was made, the average use of a car is between 20 and 25 thousand kms a year so it is very low kms for this model. I have just had the car in for its 100,000 km service. It has also recently had the MAF and throttle body cleaned and serviced and the injectors ultrasonically cleaned. Also have had a full transmission service done recently. The car is always run on BP Ultimate 98 fuel unless I am at a town that doesn’t have this fuel where the car will then get premium unleaded and an octane booster. The features of the car are as follows:

Exterior
Full exterior respray in factory Regency Red colour completed end of last year
