This class and overall championship-winner as well as Knockhill (upto 1500cc -class A) lap record holder (60.017s) & Brands Hatch Indy (56s) on Avon ZZR's- (driven by a novice)

Was built from a solid media blasted bare shell in early 2016 that started as a very nice standard road car.

No reasonable expense was spared which included seam welding and a comprehensive, integrated rollcage by Scott Mcminn Motorsport

Other notable features which were also all brand new in 2016 are:- twin 45 webers, CSC Full Race Exhaust (Zircotec coated) 50l foam fuel tank, Oversized Rad-Tec radiator in conjunction with a Mocal Laminova, heated Evans windscreen,, LED lights, Accusump(electric), etc

There will be many parts i have missed so if you are genuinely interested please give me a call as its easier than answering emails

This X1/9 has been unbeaten in its class all season and 100% reliable until it had secured the title- only one outing in 2019 and won each time it was out

Car cost as per usual a lot more in both time and parts than what I'm asking so please no offers. I dont want a swap for anything as i already have another project on the go. If it sells it sells and if not i'll happily keep it and venture down south more ...would make an ideal CSCC 1970's/80's Future Classic

£20,000 for a straight sale OR £25,950 to include spares package below (£10k worth) and happy to arrange delivery to anwhere in the UK

£10,000 spares package available by separate negotiation to include 2nd complete 1300cc engine (140hp/ twin 40's and includes manifold, alternator etc) another fresh Bacci Romani Dog-Box (4:8) with LSD, drive-shafts,wet wheels/tyres etc (which were thought necessary but unused as car behaved all season long).

A great car that is easy and comfortable to drive (comfortable for drivers upto 6'3") and which both handles and stops nothing like any regular Fiat X1/9 !! could easily cope with double the horsepower !!

I would also be prepared to help any new driver if they wanted to race it in the SMRC Classics Championship. I have full list of all set-up information and timing results sheets from every time the car has been driven.

videos of the car racing can be viewed on the "Scottish Classic Sports and Saloons" facebook page or 'SM RC" Youtube channel
