I now have my new car, so the 888 must be sold ASAP!
Will listen to any offer!!
Car is also now SORN as I will not be using it.
For sale is my pride and joy, my Vauxhall Astra 888 Coupe.
Below is some information about the car if you are not sure what you are looking at:
Astra Coupe 888
The Astra Coupe 888 born to celebrate the phenominal success of the 2001 British Touring Car season. Vauxhall together with Triple Eight Racing produce only 100 of these special Coupe's which transfer the passion, excitement and power of the track car to the UK's roads.
The 888 styling based upon the track car gives this car unqiue aerodynamic profile, race proven chassis modifications and a sports interior all adds up to the driving experience like no other. The short shift enabled gear throw, multi point sequencial direct injection, drive by wire throttle and an air cooled intercooler for the 2.0L Turbo charged 16v engine pushing out 192HP means you will be seeing 60MPH in under 7 seconds. The special 17" OZ lightweight wheels, lowered Eibach springs and dampers and Michelin Pilot Sports tyres transfer the brings the handling of race car to street. The high performance Ferodo brake pads, ABS and ESP gives you confidence to leave your braking to the very last moment.
The interior carries the 888's passion to the interior with a colour coded custom centre console, blue alacantara gaitors, 888 gear knob, 888 Racing aluminium pedals and Sparco Alacantara bucket seats makes you feel your inside something special. With a 3 spoke racing steering wheel and the cushioning Sparco seats, quickshift gear lever for faster shifting and shorter travel you'll feel the passion of a touring car driver and the will to hit the track.
If you think that all this performance comes at the price of comfort then you'll be pleasently supprised to know, that the 888 comes with air conditioning, 4 disc CD multichanger, cruise control, electric windows & door mirrors, 888 foot rest and a drivers information display including trip computer and check control warning system. The 888 brings the comfort of driving on the open road with the agression of competitive racing encompassed in the Astra Coupe 888 edition.

For sale is my Astra 888, number 51 of the 100 ever made with only around 70 remaining on the roads today.
These cars are now a rare part of Vauxhall history and heritage.
She has been very well looked after through her 10 years, complete Vauxhall full service history. Has never wanted for anything.
I have a whole pile of receipts in a folder that contains nearly all MOT certificates. It also includes an original Astra 888 sales brochure which are hard to come by.
The car is virtually standard, only a few modifications:
There are a few bad bits as you would expect from any 10 year old car - I'm just trying to be honest!
At the beginning of August, the car had brand new CV joints, driveshaft and discs and pads front and back.
Since I have owned the car, it also had a full service from Vauxhall and a new radiator.
If you want to come test drive the 888, then you MUST provide me with proof of your insurance.
Please feel free to get in touch if there is anything you want to know.
Thanks for taking the time to read everything, when you buy this 888 you will be very lucky.
