The car is well known to some people here :oops:

It was converted to LHD in Berlin three years ago and the gearbox and shifting was changed. Completely restored.

My info is it was converted to LHD way back in the 1990s by Cropredy Bridge Garage (Paul Vierhout told me that in 2010), the gear shift gate and the gear shift knob have changed since the last photos I have from 2013 (as has the colour) so I think the box may have been changed but it was already LHD when the work was done. 115,000 Euro is near enough £100,000 (GBP) and it will be interesting to see if that price can be achieved, it is the most expensive C-V8 I've seen, though I've been told of others advertised for more, but I've never been given proof that they were advertised at that price, or told which cars they were.

It's 112/2387 by the way, first owner David Jacobs, British radio and television presenter and DJ.

Sorry for my misunderstandable posting. I meant it was restored (interior, body, engine, ...) in the last years in Berlin. I saw it in the workshop and we had a long discussion with the owner.

The LHD conversion was done earlier. :oops:

The roof lining is Alcantara now, very interesting idea 8)

From memory it doesn't have the original engine and has a 4 speed auto that probbaly needed modifications to the chassis tubes for clearance and/or mounting. Can anybody confirm or add to this?

Yes this car is modified with a crate engine and an A518 overdrive.
Mods where made to chassis and bellhouse.

A good but not original car.
112-2371 was my first one, others followed :wink:

I remember talking to Chris at Medway Interceptors, around the late 1990s, he had just bought the car from David Jacobs, but not collected it at that point. He said it was a good original car, garaged, unused for a few years, just covered in a thick layer of dust but otherwise intact and in decent shape.
