Post GTM libra Project car
hi here we have for reluctant sale my GTM libra project. I had planned to completely rebuild the car into my dream track day toy but unfortunately I need to make some room as I have just bought my brothers s2000 of him to help him with his move to Portugal. The car is powered by a 1.8L rover k series vvc engine.It has had a lot of work done to it by myself and the previous owner to get it to a high spec. It has the more desirable vvc engine ( comes factory fitted with bigger valves). The engine is a strong revy motor that behaves the way it should and the gearbox feels great It is fitted with ultra stick toyo r888 tyres. The car was registed just before emissions testing became a requirement so this car can be tuned without having to worry about the emissions for the mot. The car has been fitted with sparco bucket seats, four point quick release harneses and a removable steering wheel. It has a kill switch fitted on the dash with a normal ignition barrel connected to a push button start so is hill climb friendly. I believe the previous owner had planned to hill climb it.

it will need a couple of small jobs doing to get it back to its former glory. It will require a new throttle cable and the fitting of the supplied rear shock absorbers to get it MOT'd and back on the road.I have a brand new set of protech rear shocks and springs to go on but have not had time to fit them. It could do with a new water temp gauge and spedo as these do not work. I was planning on fitting a motec digidash so never got round to fixing as the car would have been sent away for this.
There is a small crack on the rear clamshell but this is an easy repair which again I haven't had time to get done.

The car as mentioned earlier is of a very high spec with the following having been done to the car/ fitted,

team dynamics pro race wheels
ported head,
lightweight flywheel
New Double adjustable front protech shocks
New protch rear shocks (need to be fitted)
rebuilt ap front break calipers with new discs and pads
rebuilt rear calipers with new discs and pads
new handbrake mechanism
new alternator
new battery (less than 6 months old)
new headlight covers
new rear clamshell stay
recent service
new rear tyres with less than 30 miles use
nearly new front tyres
power flow exhaust stainless exhaust back box
sparco bucket seats
removable steering wheel
4 point harneses
hid lights
twin radiator fan upgrade

I will include a spare set of spark plugs, a carbon fibre effect coil pack cover, a rover engine lifting cradle for easy removal of engines. Old headlight covers (slight damage but may be useful) a haynes rover manual.

The car will need to be trailered away

"new rear clamshell stay"
"Crack on rear clamshell"

Was the need for the former linked to the latter :wink:

I’m fairly sure this was sold. If you look on facebook under ‘GTM kit car owners’ there's posts from Dean Graham who’s doing a full restoration job on it.
