850CSi race car in NZ
Here is a very rare car indeed - a RHD 850CSi race car, which is driven competitively on a regular basis by its owner here in NZ.
The ex-UK car is EG92 S/N CC88012, in Lagoon Green.
Stripped out, chipped, with competition exhaust, suspension and brakes, etc, the car looks impressive on the track - see pictures.
The engine puts out well over 400 hp, I'm told.
To improve on-track performance, the car will soon benefit from some further weight reduction mods and an even less restrictive, race-tuned exhaust.
It's great to see one of these cars on a race circuit - I wonder if this car is unique, or if there are any other similar CSi race cars out there?
