1998 GPvR For Sale (SOLD)

Postby gino » Wed Jan 06, 2016 4:26 am

****SOLD*****

What an extremely reluctant for sale ad this is, epically as it's the first post of 2016. But it has to be done. I thought I could keep the two GPvR's but really one is enough for any man. I find it hard to see it in the drive when I have just no time to use it. If I had space in a garage, I'd put it into storage and keep it until I had enough free time to enjoy it. But I've decided to let it go, and go only to a good home I will let it. I really want someone off the website to buy this and look after it, use it and enjoy it.

I've put the ad up on adverts as it's handy for photos etc, here is the link. I don't think I missed anything in the ad, put I probably did.

http://www.adverts.ie/9575904

The price may seem steep, but I'm not willing to let it go for much less. I know if someone is looking for a car like this, then they will understand that to get one with this spec its going to be hard to find.
We have heard it said a thousand times before, but if I don't get the right buyer/price I will keep the car.
Here's the content of the ad, I'll leave the photos there.


Mitsubishi FTO GP Version R Aero Series, 1998, Manual, White

Engine/Trans/Clutch:

Recent service, 5w 30 oil, oil filter, plugs etc.
The spark plugs are Denso Iridiums, supposedly better performance/economy and they last 60K miles to boot.
Aux belts changed Power Steering/Alternator/Air Con including tensioners and crank pulley changed perviously.
Brand new alternator fitted about 2k Km's ago.
The cambelt (timing belt) had been replaced when I bought the car about 30K kms ago.
ITG Maxogen filter, recently cleaned and reoiled as part of last service. Stabiliser bracket fitted, to stop the filter shaking about.
New battery about a year ago, battery tray cleaned and repainted.
2006 Clutch change (Camskill replacement), very little mileage on the car since this.
Gearbox oil changed at second last service.
LSD as standard with GPvR's.


Suspension/brakes/wheels/tyres

Springs replaced with Apex lowering springs.
CV boots replaced.
Front and Rear cusco strut braces.
New brake discs and pads all round, EBC dimpelled and grooved front discs, solid rear EBC's - Callipers fully refurbed, new pistons, seals etc and painted blue. Brake fluid change to dot 5.1. Serious stopping power.
Rota Circuit 10's with very good tyres, fronts have less than 1000 Km's on them.
Larger ARB's than regular FTO's, shortened drop links front and back.
5mm wheel spacers all round with spigot rings.
Blue anodised D1 spec wheel nuts.
Blue/silver valve dust caps.

Exterior:

Genuine Hiro Rear spoiler.
Rear and side tinted windows.
Delocked rear boot.
Silver front Mitsi badge, side Mivec stickers and blue rear FTO.
Standard GPvR HIDS with new ballast boxes.
Blueflame Quad exhaust - including decat (bolt on CAT also provided, good cat for emissions. Always flys the NCT)
Two small fto-Ireland stickers for the side window's.
Lighter body than usual FTO's as its a GPvR.
New 110db horn fitted for last NCT, proper big sound!!


Interior:

Aluminium dial rings and centre cups,
Blue front GPvR seats and black rear seats. Front seats changed for ones that are in excellent condition.
Black headliner and black sun visors, not too many around with this, headliner was removed and dyed black.
Momo steering wheel, changed for one in excellent condition.
Full clifford alarm fitted with boot release, comes with two fobs.
ipod ready alpine radio/cd player.
AC but not climate control (weight saving).
Original manual in the glove box.
Aluminium foot rest.
Momo gear knob.

NCT till January 2017, properly declared off the road so no problem re-taxing it. This car has got everthing it ever needed. Bodywork is in great condition. Especially for an 18 year old car. Most desirable FTO model, manual white GPvR. Excellent car, ideal for an FTO enthusiast. Not your usual rubbish, very few like this now. This is a real enthusiasts car, last 4 owners that I know of were FTO-Ireland club members. You won't put a car together like this for the asking price.

Please no swaps.
€3000

At least you'll still have one left Gino. That price will also fend off the tyre kickers and dreamers.

Good luck with the sale.
The price is about right I think, not that it reflects the market.... that's a different story though.

Lovely looking example.

Had a bit today alright. Very sad to see the car gone, but delighted to say it went to a great home. The new owners are FTO mad people, so I'm happy to know it will be very well looked after. Best of luck to them.

That's a good news Gino, I would say knowing that it's going to a good home makes parting with the car a little easier (never had to do it myself).
