Buying

What should I be paying?

Only 24 were made, each costing £1.8 million plus tax. Not cheap. But a car that has probably been a safe investment for those that bought into it, plus can grow and develop with you. Look, this is not a car in the same vein as the other 99.9 per cent of cars out there. It’s a toy, a plaything, serves no practical purpose. But if you’re in the market for one, wouldn’t you want one that you can modify to your taste or as your ability develops and improves?

All this is possible. You can change the dampers, toe angles, caster, cambers, gear ratios, fuelling, tyres, whatever. Just come in, have a word with your engineer, maybe go over your data traces. It’s the ultimate track day car and you’ve paid enough for it, so play around with it, indulge yourself. Why the hell not? That’s what it’s there for.
