I got flamed for taking the piss out of one of these, they are a serious disappointment in my view though. Its no skyline.
As far as the Alfa goes they look fab inside and out (especially with the aero kit) theyre pretty quick, 0-60 in 6.5 and 150mph and theyre rare. You can also pick them up for around 11 grand second hand so bit of a bargain in my view. There is a good tuning firm called Autodelta which does, exhausts, turbos, suspension..everything basically. The only problem is the residuals really. There are some electric problems but other than that reliabilty isnt a problem.
TVR all the way, mates got a tuscan_s in the swordfish colour. And she goes like u wouldnt believe, but Bazzas right, they are such a badly built car, even from new. Just little stupid things like gear knob on wrong way round, doors drop when opened, and still it leaks like........a TVR i suppose. The pure power and speed still compromises!
Couple of weeks ago a GTIR Nissan Thing pulled up next to us at some lights. Reving the tits off the thing dump valve the lot. My mate just started laughing. Put his foot down just sat there and let the back wheels spin. We did not move an inch. The lights went green the tuscan just pulled and pulled and pulled the thing gets 0-100 quicker then mine does to 50!!
My uncle paid £14k for his M3, it was 1996, the usual estoril blue, tracker, 74,000 miles. He also has a GT version in green which cost a bit more because of the rarity, he has since put an old M5 engine in it though as the 3.2 got damaged on track.
You could get a really basic elise, then save up for a couple of years and get a CTR engine and box conversion
