After its career in rallycross races was this ex-factory car saved by Dean Hetherington, former DTV mechanician, who restored the car into its original spec in the beginning of 1990s. The car was bought into our collection in 2014. Few months later, we have decided to make complete restoration of the car and fine tune all the differences between current and original factory spec. This final restoration was finished in april 2017. Car was rebuilt into tarmac spec.
