Supercharged american v8 in a british car, filth haha, can see these getting to a low point then appreciating in value as they're an oddity, possible investment for the future?
They are pretty much at a low point now. Can be picked up for about £5k for a 'well used' example and not much on the history part right through to examples with 15k on the clock and a history folder thicker then original manual lol!Supercharged american v8 in a british car, filth haha, can see these getting to a low point then appreciating in value as they're an oddity, possible investment for the future?
One of my mates had one in Typhoon with a dreadnought supercharger that was running about 400 or so bhp - Such an amazing experience (and that was just as a passenger!!)If you can ever find one XD
I've had my eyes out for one for a long while and would genuinely consider trading my evo for one.
To judge a 260 by it's headline numbers is to miss the point. It is quite a bit faster in the real world than it's 0-60 (6.2s) or peak power would indicate. It has a pretty good amount of torque, pretty much on par with most engines of it's age and size. It's really quite slow off the line but once moving the big wall of torque is very impressive.2002 pre production, the skyline was N plate came with lots of toys inc tv long before 2002 and would blow a 260 into the weeds lol. picked one up for less than 3 grand a few years back with les than 40000 miles and it ran sweet as a nut. lets just say i am 100% sure it would do 165mph but never on a public motorway though lol.
if you are buying a car for power and performance which these are supposed to offer i would feel short changed lol.
over priced and over weight, ok if you are buying one to collect i suppose but i would rather have a ZS180 if you want a car to actually use on the road daily which is what a car is for.
