Selling my beloved flame red 888 due to buying a house, so unfortunately I’m having to let it go.

Very good condition for the age of the car. Never smoked in. Literally no scratches, car park dents, no scuffs, no knocking, no blue smoke, no black smoke. Gearbox is smooth when changing gears. It literally just needs a new home. Recently had a 2 stage polish last year, so the paint is in very good condition. Some extremely minor stone chips, but have been touched up and are hardly noticeable. It’s a 15 year old car after all. Genuine 888 alloy wheels that have been powder coated by the previous owner and come with the genuine 888 centre caps (which is rare).

Full details of the 888 can be found in the photos.
Basic spec:
150hp standard map with 200hp on sport button (Standard 888 ECU and hasn’t been mapped).
4 Pot 888 Alcon 335mm front brakes
VX Racing sports suspension
888 18” Multispoke lightweight alloys
Sports tailpipe

The original 888 shocks & springs have been replaced for Bilsteins and Eibachs by the previous owner. These are a common replacement and most owners usually paint these black and add 888 stickers. Proper 4 Pot 888 alcon brakes which look fantastic and pads have plenty of meat. VXR full leather bucket seats with great bolsters on both front seats. No rips or tears. Black interior including black headlining and plastics. Tinted windows and for a clean look, a proper glass de-wiper bung.

Only modifications are the EGR blanking plate, new projector headlights and a fresh stainless steel OEM looking exhaust tip. The car drives and pulls incredibly well.

Recent work:
Powerflex Engine and Gearbox mount inserts. (Can be easily removed if desired).
Poly-bushed rear beam bushes
VXR gearknob with new bush and properly greased.
Brand new projector headlights with brand new HID conversion (Originals included in sale)
EGR blanking plate fitted (full delete kit included)
New floor mats
New hand brake and gear gaiters
Full LED interior light conversion
USB fast charging ports in front ash tray
Wrapped roof black
Brand new rear tyres
Rear brakes overhauled by previous owner
Genuine K&N air filter cleaning kit used to clean the current air filter
Due an oil and oil filter change, however leaving this up to new owner.

These are only going up in value and with extremely low miles at only 86k, this is definitely a car worth putting away if you’re a collector or a 888 enthusiast.

Cars with 140k+ miles are fetching £4000+

With full service history, low miles and low owners this is truly a rare opportunity to own one of these appreciating modern classic cars.
