Description

PV544 rally car for sale: £25, 000

After owning the renowned "GAS 685" for over 20y, we find she hasn't been used for 12m, so Emma says it's time to sell.

The car has seen one international win, and more class wins than I can count. Famously reliable car, having done several RAC Rally of the Tests, a LEJoG, regular outings on our national HRCR championship events, and one Iceland event.

Last used in December 2023, to demonstrate our engine to Volvo Cars UK, who immediately ordered one engine for their heritage 220 police car, and now they've ordered a second engine from us.

The specification is high, but as all my competition cars are, it is correct and legal - we have not needed to transgress the rules in order to win!

Video to follow, when it dries out a bit here.
