    Astra mk3 4x4 feat in Max power??

    Hey guys

    I was watching one of the max power dvd's which featured an Astra F (mk3) GSI 4x4 which courtney had done the conversion for. It was running the C20LET motor, with a full 4x4 conversion and 400bhp. It was white, iam wondering if you guys had seen this car before? or if you have seen any other sort of conversions like this.
    I didn't think a 4x4 could be done on an astra, i would have thought it would have been easier doing it on a astra mk4 instead of an mk3???

    It was made in about 1996 for a guy who lived in jersey.

    Cost about £20k+

    And courtney said they would never do one again.

    Last i heard the car was dead.
    Cant Think of Anything Funny To Say

    AMD had a MK3 Astra van with this conversion up on their ram where we were all there earlier this year

    That particular car was the 1st mk3 to have the 6-speed box fitted and also the 1st to have the 4x4 conversion, well ahead of its time. Featured twice in Max Power.

    It is now a FWD 2.0 16v with an FWD F20 box. So who ever has it now, I wonder if they know the potential that lies beneath!!!

    Bet it handles well with the I.R.S.

    Even the MK5 Astra doesnt have that (I think Vauxhall made a mistake there).
