Looking for a very clean Y10 Turbo?

Having ran one back in the day as a daily for about 3 years, would certainly be interesting to drive it again, or would it? Things have moved on a bit!
If I had the room/spare money for a larger car collection, would be nice though.

I had one a lone car for for two weeks when my Inetrale was having work done to it. They were fun but that was 20 years ago and things have moved on a tad. Bet there aren't many around these days and certainly not looking as good as that one.

Mine was certainly a giggle to drive, you had real turbo lag!
I could never get more than an average of 30 mpg out of it though, 1049cc and 85 BHP, although had mine on the rollers and it was 99 BHP when at the same time, Escort RS Turbos weren't making their stock 130!
Compare to my M140i 30 years later, a cylinder capacity 3 times bigger, output power 4 times greater, and an average of 35 mpg!
