Its a different cyclinder head. Wonder what its actually cranking out at.
I would imagine its quite high compression given the new engine management etc...
Looks fun. I love the stripped out interiors.
I fell in love with them when I sat In a DB9 that was all carbon fibre. in an open day. Really suprised how small the windscreens are in those and how small the door openings are. And I'm not even a big lad lol.
The problem with a car like that is that they contain lots of bespoke one off parts that may be difficult/impossible to replace in the event of damage.
A friend of mine has a Ducati 996RS that he managed to bin and break the custom made magnesium top yoke, its kept the bike off the track now for over a year.
Surely he can just get one made in a different material though. I mean a top yoke isn't exactly that difficult to replace. I'd just have one made. Lower and upper.
I nkow what you are saying though. But you don't run isn't the same issues for track day gear. Your not working with the same realms about bypassingg certain electrics. you can just bung parts in mechancially normally to get round things.
Just to show that the 156 has real racing heritage, it would be nice to turn up at a few meets in one of these.
Not a bad price for its spec and heritage, would fit into the alfa championship. Neil Smith at NJS has a later version TCC 156 which is currently valued at £100k. a better option is to get hold of a decent 2.0 TS and race it in the Class E champrionship before graduating to an expensive car...Class E could be as reasonable as £10k for the first year (included approx £5k on the car and prep). Need to get an MSA licence first though before spending any dosh.
