Correctly registered as a Middlebridge Scimitar GTE, 1991 (originally H-reg) 2. 9litre Scorpio V6 EFI 5-speed manual. Under 59, 000 miles. Number 61 of 77 made. Metallic racing green with cream interior and leather seat facings with (uniquely I believe) a factory-fit ‘Scimitar’ branded Taylor-made opening sun roof. Good overall condition. Usual Middlebridge features of galvanised chassis, stainless exhausts and fuel tank, PAS and electric windows and mirrors.

I have owned this car since early 2015 and during that time (and with the previous owner) it has always been garaged. Pretty much everything on it works as it should, including the HRW and rear wiper – wash may need some attention but it has worked in the past. Tailgate courtesy light isn't working – I've never investigated why – and under-bonnet light is disconnected to avoid inadvertent battery drain.

Work done on it in my ownership includes:

New Alpine audio head (incl front USB) c/ w all speakers (JBL)
All-plastic marine fans for improved ventilation
New Goodridge stainless braided steel brake hoses
New Italvolanti leather steering wheel
High-level LED brake light
New rear light lenses
Modified air box for more efficient air intake flow
New magnetic sump plug
All fluids (incl rear diff) replaced at 57914 miles
New seal to tailgate and hinges rebuilt
New (non-metallic) drain tubes to bottom of tailgate opening
New rear wiper arm and blade
New rear drop links and bushes
New exhaust hanger rubbers
Battery isolator device fitted

The car comes with:

Cherished registration G1 GTE
MoT to September 2024
2 sets of keys
Extensive history file of past receipts, MoTs and DVLA documentation
Original wood MB steering wheel.
Jack and full size spare wheel with wheel-brace
