One more car added in the storage place! The first R-sport, 1982 edition...

Collected yesterday in France, whole day trip Belgium-France-Belgium (900km)

Good points: genuine R-sport (!), black with nice beige interior, only 100.000km, no brakedown during the trip.

Bad points: rust of course but it can be saved :-), engine/carbs to be adjusted, lack of maintenance the last years.

I just LOVE to roaring noise of the B19 with twin carbs, it was nice to play with it downtown sm48

The owner is Quentin, I have enough cars waiting for repairs :D

Some pictures of course!

Very nice! Is there any writing (make, part no etc) on that rear spoiler? French R-Sport road tests of the day tend to show the R-Sport looking exactly like that, with the edges of the rear spoiler "drooping" down the side of the boot lid. I haven't seen that spoiler on V300s in any other markets.

Cheers
