I think my Y10 fire was 336 XKM, I'll look out the photos.

Motor road tested Y10 Turbo B331 XKM in the 22 June 1985 issue, Sports Car tested Y10 Turbo B335 YKK in August 1985, and Motor published a 'Brief Test' of a Y10 Fire in 23 November 1985, but I don't have a copy of the latter so cannot confirm a Reg Number.

I wonder how much it would be if it had five speeds :-)

The eBay car does have five speeds: I went to look at it yesterday as it's only a few miles from home.

It's a super little car, no blemishes that I could find on the paintwork apart from a chip on the wing-top under the bonnet (bare metal, but not rusty). There's a small scuff on the rear bumper, and a bit of alloy corrosion under the bonnet, but it does look like a two year-old car. The seller describes it as 'mechanically spot on', which I would dispute: the clutch pedal is sticky and probably needs a new cable, the brakes are spongy, again probably needs flushing and new fluid, the cambelt hasn't been changed in living memory, all the tyre are crazed and need replacing ... you get the idea! Basically it has been parked up and mechanically neglected, but a thorough service should sort it out - apart from the clutch and brakes, it drives really nicely.

It was registered by Lancar in August 1984, and sold through Tony Brooks to the only registered owner in October, so I doubt it was ever a road test car, but presumably was one of the first imports; I wonder why Lancar pre-registered it/

All in all, a lovely buy, but as has been pointed out, that's a lot of money for a Y10!

Having just replaced the rear brake flexi hose on my Y10 I suspect this one needs the back axle taking out and having its' one replaced. Being first sold by Tony Brooks is interesting as my Flaminia was first sold by his garage too.

It's the one the thread is all about Brian. They are going to have to try every outlet they can find at that price I think. Note the lack of any mention of an MOT. Kevinlincs suggests it's not "ready to go" but has been immobile for years and more in need of recommissioning.

Thanks Frank,
I'd forgotten it was this one🙄
I think they'll have to try hard as well, haven't seen a Y10 fetch that sort of money for a long time.
Being that it's a business selling it, I assumed it was Mot'd, I might give them  a ring later.

It's not MOTd at the moment, although I would expect them to put a certificate on it if they were able to sell it at anywhere near that price!

An mot will be supplied when car sold,  rear brakes have been changed, new exhaust
system fitted, and will have service before sale.
It's near Newark on Trent and they were quite happy to answer,
Last on the road on 2017, since then ha been in their possession.

That sounds rather more like it. Trade sellers usually put such things in their advert.
