PE­TER GOR­DON SAP­PHIRE COS­WORTH 4X4

Fast Ford - - Club Meet -

Pe­ter’s car is one we’ve spot­ted a good few times in the past. No won­der as he’s owned it for 20 years and is a vet­eran of the show scene. And not just Show & Shine, Pe­ter com­peted in mod­i­fied con­cours for years up and down the coun­try with his im­mac­u­late Saph. There’s plenty of clean­li­ness and pow­der­coated parts, but also a healthy spec putting out 400bhp too. A T34.63/GT30 hy­brid turbo, wasted spark con­ver­sion, and Siemens 55lb in­jec­tors give it plenty of go, plus smart mods like a Rey­land hy­draulic clutch con­ver­sion en­sure it’s nice to drive. Pe­ter might wince at com­pli­ments of how mint his car is given that it may have been cleaner in com­pe­ti­tion be­fore, but we can barely tell the dif­fer­ence and be­lieve that the car will be a whole lot more fun now be­ing used rather than judged!

It may be con­coursclean, but this Saph still kicks out 400bhp!
