GB343 now has a new home! Collected today Very Happy

The JE 5.0L Supersport has a lovely growl and power delivery, but it really is effortless to drive. I missed out on this very car about 5 years ago to the owner who just sold it to me...!

Long time lurker, as nearly bought a Puma 2.4 off Jeremy back in 2010 - ended up in a Supercharged Range Rover Vogue SE...as you do. Still had the itch though, so finally picked up the 50th when it came up.

Thanks all. So far so good! Drives really well. There are a few bits I will tidy up at some point, but these are minor details. The only small problem is the hole in the fuel tank.... Laughing

So it sounds like there are a few JE powered ones on the forum then!

Thought I would stick this out there, looks like I might be looking to part with GB343. My TVR obsession is taking over, with my Griff, Cerbera and 'new' one on the way, something will need to give.

A few bits since I picked it up - recently had new OEM shocks and springs, stainless exhaust with hedman tubular manifolds and tornado chip for the 5.0L mapping all done last November. Any ball park thoughts on value? Prices are all over the place, but I guess around 32k, given the JE lump and pieces.


Anyone looking, drop me a PM.

Sorry to hear your thinking of selling, I would hope it's worth every bit of 32k with it being a JE 5.0 and as you have done all the bits.

Yes, I guess an asking price of 32000 is about right. You can haggle down but not up.

Yeah, thanks guys. Just needed an idea and thoughts. In no rush, great fun as it is to drive, but I think it will need to go to make the space.
