MNR Vortx RT+ ZX10R on pistonheads

Anybody know anything about this MNR for sale? http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/682922.htm

Have tried to contact the seller but currently had no reply. Anyone recognise the car or have comments on the advert?

Cheers

"it has phenominal acceleration (60 in 3 secs)and bags of power in every gear, it's like F1 for the road."

Hmm, I wonder....

That figure is probably not far off. BEC cars actually accelerate very quickly. My R1 powered Vortx does 60+ in first gear so it is only a matter of dumping the clutch and floor it.

"not for the faint-hearted"

hmmmm, haven't heard that one before. I supose it means that if a person had a faint heart (whatever that is) then maybe he hadn't better buy that car?

Cant get through to the seller anyway so perhaps it's sold or something. Or maybe he's on holiday.......

I reckon 3 seconds 0-60mph is slightly optimistic. 4 seconds is probably more realistic. Still damn quick though

I met Wynn at MNR the day that I ordered my kit. He was collecting his.

I think it's a nice build. If I remember right he lives on Anglesey. There are some pictures of the car on the MNR site.

And probably as quick as you could ever want for the road - maybe too quick in most situations!! Some people just wont accept that BEC's are flippin quick!!

I saw this car (and spoke to the guy) on a trackday at anglesey, it was very nicely made and was going very well on the track
