Vehicle History


Imported 10 years ago and put away after only 2000km, then bought by the previous owner who sold it to me. He only bought to sell and the car has only 1 previous owner.  There were 1000 RA models made every year mostly in white, red ones are very very rare. Later ones coming in blue too. Its in exceptional condition having only covered 81,000kilometres 50,000 miles. It drives very well and is a real time warped example.
