    A very good friend of mine is selling is 86 twin turbo testarossa. This car is a blast, it is also a Targa top. He is asking $55K, if anybody is interested please let me know. At one point there were pictures of the car, at last years Gathering in Indy. I will try to pull them up, but they were on the old site.

    That wouldn't happen to be the black w/ red interior seats Turbo w/ Nitrous Testarossa with the removable targa top would it? If so, I have all the pics and would be glad to post them for you, if you'd like...

    Oops, you posted all of them. Ok, I got no more.

    As a general comment: The car looked really hot. However the conversion job was a bit crude: You could see the cut off pillars and the engine bay wasn't terribly organized. But the car definitely stole the show. It got about as much attention as the F40, which isn't too bad for a TR.

    Why was the top off in the rain? Or had the rain stopped when the photos were taken? Either way its a beast of a car. Very nice!!!

    It sprinkled while we were lining the vehicles up and the guy who brought it (he was not the owner, but a friend who had to sell it) was busy talking to people, hence the rain sprinkles hitting it.

    After I lost track (was too busy enjoying the view of that F40 in my mirror), but I'm quite certain they drove it with the top on. It rained hard later on. The last shot at night was taken after the rain had stopped.

    I wonder if this was the car I saw in Indy last year for the USGP? Anyone Anyone? There is also a black black quad turbo TR here in Atlanta. Talk about a fast car!!

    Yes, that is the car. I took these pictures during the USGP weekend in Indy.

    It inspired me so much, I went searching for a 1/18 model of a "GTS 512" and guess what, I found one. Although without NOS. Maybe I should add that...

    I would have been so interested a few weeks back before I tide up some money on my new 2003 330I Dinan. Black and red is great but I am not sure about the targa. But who cares 1000Hp. If I could get something together I'll be interested.
     
  17. nice what are the 0-60 and 60-100 times on that car, I bet it packs a extremly powerfull punch with NOS.

    I wonder if under full acceleration whether it becomes a coupe again, or maybe under braking :D

    Rjklein,

    Yes, very good lookin' car. Why the owner is selling this car? may I ask?

    I may be interested, if the current deal I'm working on didn't turn out well.

    Where is it? Can you get more detailed info if I requested.

    Thanks

    Yoshi

    Thats what I was thinking... With a custom turbo setup and nitrous install, I would be thinking it would go for at least 60 even if it were stock?

    That is quite a package for 55k, did it lose money from the modifications? I read somewhere that even repainting the TR's seems to raise questions for some reason.
    Also, do you have to do any chassis bracing when you chop the top off a car like that, especually with the extra power?

    Yoshi,

    Sorry I was out of town for a couple of days. These are the pictures of the car, thank you for posting them. I would be happy to put any person in direct contact with the owner. He loves cars, just sold a F-40, and is selling this car as well. The reason he is just reworking his line up. The car was done by Norwood. The car is way fast and sounds awsome, would be a great buy for $55K.

    Let me know if anybody in interested and I will put you in contact with the owner.

    Do I get a free test drive for taking these pictures? If so, I'll come back to this year's USGP. Heck, I would even write an article about the car for our club magazine.

    The owner of the car would be happy to deliver the car at the USGP, because the car is located in Indy. I am no way a middle man or a broker. This is a personal friend of mine, who knows that I chat on this forum, he just asked if I could help him put the word out.
