Yes once the 4wd is done a 2wd will be next but will have the Inspire4 DNA.

Looks epic

Many times I tried to get details off them to buy or put something together! But they never gave a price or anything just said make an offer. Then messages not returned etc.

I really believe in this day and age something could of been done via crowed funding

But hayho

It's like they just gave up. Their website had hundreds of parts for the x11 still available until it went offline not that long ago.

Wonder what they did with it all. Took it to the tip?

But what's the point in keeping it all and doing nowt with it. If the amount of spares on the site was correct the surely he's having to pay to store it. Seems a waste

Great work Dyna, I can appreciate the amount of work in what you've completed there.

Great read ... and on the same time, very sad.
IMHO the owners won’t sell. Only want to gain mucho money out of it, as far as I see it, they have. O heart for the pred.
Not as much off heart that many (ex-) pred-owners have.

And indeed, the non-existing service for the pred is what killed it.

It’s an utter shame. LUUUVE that car and would lobe to see X12 being sold again, maybe even versions 13 ..14 ...
