2000 Vauxhall Vectra GSi V6, 2498cc. Registration number X307 FDT. VIN number WOLOJBF19Y1184505.
In the late-nineties, Vauxhall was campaigning hard in the British Touring Car Championship with the Vectra, so it made sense to have a road car that would celebrate that fact. It made even more sense for the people screwing the race cars together, namely Motorsport Developments (MSD), to get involved.
As such, in 1999 we were given the petrol V6, 192bhp, five-speed Vectra GSI. It featured uprated cams, bigger brakes, lower suspension, model-specific alloy wheels, a remapped ECU and a performance exhaust system. It was only built in limited numbers (3,900 of which 317 were an estate) and offered race fans and performance fans alike the chance to get behind the wheel of a Vectra that resembled the cars on track. And resemble it did, thanks to the body kit consisting of a side-vented front bumper, skirts, rear spoiler. Inside a leather steering wheel, Recaro seats and dark trim with GSi branding.
On the road, the GSi had very good poise and precision, the 2.5 V6 had 192bhp, a top speed of 148mph and could crack sixty from static in 7.8s.
FDT, in Star Silver, is a one owner example with only some 70,000 miles on the clock; it was bought new on the 11th September 2000 from Perrys of Doncaster for £22,245. It comes with two stamps in the book, at 5,755 miles in 2001 and 14,569 miles in 2002. The MOT history confirms the current mileage and it has just had a full service including the cambelt and the brakes overhauled.
Sold with the V5C, fresh MOT, MOT history, various service receipts, full booklet pack.
