Description for luxury vehicle RENAULT R8 GORDINI FOR SALE

FOR SALE

R8 GORDINI

 

This 1968 fully restored R8
Gordini is offered for sale to the classic Renault enthusiast.

 

R8G was purchased by current
owner at Shannon’s Melbourne auction in September 2013 for $27,500, having
had three previous owners.  The immediate
past owner loved Gordi for over 25 years before having to reluctantly sell at
the auction.

 

“Gordi” was in reasonable
shape but needed quite a bit of repair and restoration to be an enjoyable daily
drive and to participate in classic racing events.

 

The restoration was done by
Ray Watson at Gecko Engineering over an 18 month period and included the
following:

 

BODY

 

Gordi was completely stripped
before media blast.  This revealed a very
sound body with very little rust but had some damage on the driver side pillar.

 

PAZ Automotive Spray Painting
was commissioned to do the necessary repairs and respray in Gordini Blue.  The result is a stunning looking as new
Gordini body.  Total cost of for body and
panels was $24,500.

 

All rubber seals were replaced
for doors and windows.

 

ENGINE

 

The engine has been
completely restored with all new parts, where available, and used parts sourced
from around the world which were then serviced and brought back to as new
standard.

 

The new parts include the
pistons and liners, cam shaft and followers, gaskets etc.

 

With new exhaust and muffler
from Auto Bleu Gordi sounds awesome and drives easily in traffic, on the open road
and on the track.

 

MegaJolt electronic ignition
was added after initial restoration. 
This transformed the Gordi into an even easier and well behaved car to
drive.

 

GEARS and SUSPENSION

 

The gears, clutch and running
gear were fully stripped, serviced and repaired where necessary.  There was not much work required as all were
in good condition.



 

ELECTRICALS

 

The wiring loom was replaced
with new one.  Fuses were modified and
relays added to modern electrical standards.

 

WHEELS AND TYRES

 

The Gordini wheels with
Michelin XAS tyres are in very good condition.

 

There is also a set of four
Brahim rims included in the sale. These came from a Renault A110 with near new Dunlop
SP Sport 200 175/65 tyres.

 

Both 15 inch wheels.

 

OTHER

 

In preparation for historic
racing a roll cage was and a retro style racing seat plus four point racing
harness were fitted.  These are removable
to restore Gordi back to original seats.

 

There is also a car cover
that I had made for Gordi.

 

There is also a range of
spares that came with the car plus original exhaust and muffler.

 

The restoration in including
paint, panel parts and labour was over $100,000.

 

But the result was worth it.

 

Now due to changing
circumstances it is time to offer Gordi to a Renault enthusiast who appreciates
a car famous in Australian rally history and a legend in European racing.

 

I am open to offers that
reflect the time and money that has gone into making “Gordi” a car that will
provide the new owner with many, many more years of driving pleasure.
