    That’s insane. I know Magnus got a nice 924 GTS for less then that last year. It was a low mile best of breed example for the 924.... insane.

    A rare sighting of a Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 V-Spec II Nür, but no not in Midnight Purple (because this one's actually a wrap!):

    The 250LM has a 3.3 litre engine so logically should have been a 275LM as some people refer to it. Ferrari insisted it be called 250LM for homologation reasons as a continuation of the 250GTO. Ferrari themselves never referred to this car as a 275LM.

    I forgot about that, i got fooled by the sign next to the car which stated it was a 275.

    I think it is safe to say that I could not drive that car for a number of reasons lol.

    My main reason is that I can't get into my race suit any longer. :whistling:

    Oh, and that I don't own a 250/275LM. If I had that sort of money a 250SWB would come first.

    I do think that anyone with an OMP race suit should be able to double-declutch to synchronise the engine & drivetrain revs and avoid the nasty crunch. Perhaps even heel-and-toe to do it while braking too. :cool:

    I have driven a real crash box on a 1904 car: now that was a pig to change gear on with the hand throttle to try to match revs. Steered beautifully though. The 250LM would have dog engagement, not moving the actual gears.
