Looks a real beauty, I love the imperial red colour. What was the main reason for the sidestep into another similar FTO, was it just all the sporty extras that were fitted?

I wanted a manual and one with less miles as the black one was getting a bit shabby.

Plus this one is in much better condition underneath.  Considerably less rust.

i hate to be a **** and i know im only looking at pics on a forum, but there isn't a single panel gap thats the same front to back on that car. i hope its got good history. or that they're just bad shadows making it look like bad gaps.

Manual FTO's are like rocking horse sh**, a future classic for sure. Nice car mate.

I think you're just looking at the front bumper.  The rest of the car is fine.  The front bumper came off another car that had a little front bump, that's why it's not so great fitment.

Edit:  just noticed the gap between the drivers side light and the bonnet.  The bonnet is a carbon fibre one I salvaged from a scrap yard.  I had to drill out two hinge bolts, one either side, and now only one side has two bolts in, the other only has 1 bolt in.  This makes the bonnet sit a little funny.  Which reminds me i need to source a bigger bolt for it.  Hopefully that'll pull it into place and even things up.

i had spotted that bonnet to wing gap, but if its a carbon bonnet fair play to you, thats a good gap!!!

i always wondered if fto's were as much fun as they looked. sometimes regret not getting out of my vw shaped comfort zone earlier.
