Amazon tarmac rally car, NSW [Auction]

SpacSpac @Spac Canberra-ish.

Ad is a bit vague for my liking but it does look like a decent build.

Listed as a 123GT, but that aspect is not detailed in the ad, so I could definitely be confirming that before I handed any money over.

FB posts suggest they're expecting ~$35k.

  • It has a Targa Tas history. Found an action pic in The Exaggerator.

    George M has confirmed that it is a genuine 123GT.

    I am intrigued by the 2.4 litre B20 though...

  • I came across this car - then in dirt mode - on the Sydney London Marathon in 2014, driven by Hans and his brother Kjell, who came out from Sweden for the event. Great guys. The car was very quick so the 2.4 isn’t a surprise. Hans was very cagey about the engine when I talked with him!

    George M has also said that it has a stroker crank in it.

    I'm trying to work out if the Hans Appelgren who apparently owns it is the old dirt biker and former Husqvarna motorcycles importer of the same name.

    Final bid was $25k, which seems about right to me.
