Only 2 previous owners, last since 1978! Used only as private car, never actually raced or rallied. The paint finish is top RR standard as you would expect from marque specialists.
She makes a very throaty sound when fired up and is a real “head turner”, depending on how brave you are, it should be capable of 100 mph plus, however previous driver rarely exceeded 80. On the road it drives very tight and positive, like new in fact and is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on!
DIY maintenance is straightforward, especially forward of the windscreen thanks to the flip-up front end. Parts availability is also very good.
The Triumph Car Club were interested in doing an article on this car but the last owner never quite got round to it. Now on the market due to his advancing years, so ready for new owner to enjoy to its full potential.

*Overton Vehicle Overhauls is a family run business established in 1968 of highly qualified Engineers who usually cater exclusively for Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars from a routine service to full rebuild. They have extensive experience on vehicles from the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost to the latest Bentley Continental GT and Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph models. The last custodian also owned a RR Cloud 2 which Overton serviced and knowing their expertise and skills he chose them to build a one-off GT6-Spec Special subsequently nicknamed the SPIDER! Drive it and you will be captured by it.
