59 Plate 850bhp Fully Forged One-Off GTR

So I’m reluctantly looking to sell my beloved car. I’ve had it for nearly 4 years and it’s been perfect since day one so it’s obviously with a heavy heart that I’m looking to move it on. The only reason for the sale is purely down to the fact that I don’t use it, even more so now the kids are a bit older and want to take their bikes everywhere.

The car has literally wanted for nothing! Garaged when not in use, only used at weekends and serviced by ACSpeedtech religiously every 6 months, in fact, on my last service in May Andy informed me that I’ve now actually run out of pages on my Service Book! The previous owner was as meticulous as me which is why I knew this was the car for me, he also had the car serviced and looked after predominately by ACSpeedtech and in the earlier days Litchfield too.

Since day one of ownership I’ve looked to make the Car my own starting with a new wrap, wheels, various carbon pieces etc. This modding has progressed through ownership and three of the most recent mods have been the biggest in my opinion, the first being a full forged engine build and power upgrades by ACSpeedtech (details below), this work was carried out and completed in the summer of 2017 at around 44k miles (currently on 53k) at a cost of just under £20k. Second was a full body respray in a unique one off colour. This was a proper job with everything off of the car and the company who painted the car (Prospray) believe it to be probably their best work since they started over 20 years ago, I have to agree, the finish of the job is immaculate the only downside to the colour is the fact that most of my photos don’t pick up the true colour, it’s one of those colours that really needs to be seen in order to appreciate the different levels (full progress pictures can be provided if requested). This work was carried out in Summer 2018 at a cost of just under £8k. Lastly I had a full MY17/EBA front end upgrade which included bonnet, headlights, front bumper, DRL’s, grilles and splitter etc, all parts used were OEM.

As I’m sure you can tell, this car has had thousands and thousands spent on it and I’m pretty sure I’ve missed lots of bits off too (loads of receipts including ones from previous owners too). If you’re looking for a truly one off car that is ridiculously quick, has all the looks of a later GTR but with the rawness of a CBA, as well as piece of mind with the recent engine build then this car is the one for you. Andy and Alan at ACSpeedtech will be able to give you pretty much a complete history of the car and they will also back up my comments around it being extremely well looked after mechanically as well as being in fantastic condition inside and out from a cosmetic aspect.

I have to point out that I’m in no real rush to sell so will happily wait for the right owner if necessary. With regards to viewings they are obviously strongly recommended due to the uniqueness of the car but when it comes to test driving I will be the one driving and only the interested party will be able to accompany in the vehicle during the test drive, hopefully you understand my reasons for outlining this.

More pictures can be provided and I’ll also try and upload more recent interior and engine shots when I have them as these were done prior to the engine build although look wise there’s not much difference to be honest. If you check out my Instagram page which is thatatomicgtr you’ll also see lots more pics on there too.

Ridiculous amount of interest, itís always generated that but only part exchange offers and no serious cash buyers.

I think itís always been the way with modified GTRís but our cars at sub £50k are incredible value and you would think anybody in the market would do the math and snap it up.

Iíve been looking at pricing for parts and sadly itís likely it will return to stock (minus the colour) and sold on. I done that with my last GTR almost 4 years ago, didnít think Iíd be repeating history.

Love the look of youíre car by the way.
