Well that was unexpected! Amaranth Violet Sport rescue!

Well that was unexpected!

After first hearing about this super rare
Amaranth Violet Porsche 968 Sport in Southport way back in January 2020 I finally viewed it with a great friend three weeks ago. Sadly a deal could not be done as the seller was being very unrealistic in what he wanted for the car.

It was time to forget and move on.

Then last week I got a message that he was prepared to let the car go and accept my offer.

So this last Tuesday was another trip to Southport this time with my trailer guy Phil to collect the car.

The car has really not been used recently and has incredibly only done 382 miles in the last 9 years!

Car is currently filthy inside and out, so major clean later this week, before we start gathering parts to give it a major service, MOT and get it back on the road!
Really enjoying the Amaranth car now its back on the road, last few small jobs and enjoy for the summer!
