1971 Renault 8

Lot: 171

Sold for (£): 5,170
Offered for sale is a 1.1L 1971 RENAULT 8 manual that has been with the current owner for the last 3 years. Coming with a partial history file, this lot's condition scores 75 / 135.

Classic Car Auctions says:

Built with competition in mind and utilising a Salv Sacco built RS Gordini engine, full roll cage and alloy tank. Sitting around 4" lower than a conventional R8 and churning out approximately 105bhp, this entry will always keep a smile on your face.

Included amongst the documents is the RAC Motor Sports Association Competition Car log book issued in 1999.

We are informed the car has been issued with a 'daytime' MoT certificate, we are told principally because the light switch could not be found.

This exciting car is offered with no reserve and may be just what you are after.
