    I remember seeing that car in a double GTE feature in Revs a few years back, at the time, it was red with lots of white bits on the bodywork, and white speedline wheels.

    It was then rebuilt with a load of SBD goodies, and made bonkers amounts of power and torque for an XE, earning the owner another mag feature

    Then it was stripped again as the owner sold the engine on, and ran it with a standard XE, when it was featured in Revs for a third time
    If I remember correctly

    Completely wrong car Andy. The GTE your talking about is Mike Warners old one, that had a few face lifts here and there and was running SBD Tb's.

    The one COO speaks of is very very mint, although its not worth £4k, unless your a real enthusiast who will keep it garaged for life.
    Its been for sale alot lately iirc

    but it did have a double feature with another Red GTE didnt it, please tell me I got that bit right, I am too young to be loosing my marbles

    It was a few years ago since I read that mag, and has long since gone in the bin, but from what I can remember they were a pair of very fine examples.

    I hope mike throws up a pic to reassure me that I am this side of sane!!!!!

    Yes, My car was featured along with Justin Claxton's reg GTE. His had the GTE 16V plate on it. I had the white bits. At the time, my engine was only mildly modified - only exhaust, air filter and chip IIRC. I think it was December 1998!!! Well remembered.

    At least the grey matter is not going too soft then


    I can rememeber reading that, and wishing I could afford a GTE, at the time I was driving a corsa 1.2, that used to be by nans car . I was only 17 at the time though. Thanks for clearing it up mike, but I was still wrong in the first place
