Ascari Ecosse


Would you like a pre Noble Noble???? Then this rare beast is for you. Built by British manufaturer Ascari Cars between 1998-99. In all only 17 of this V8 BMW mid-engined car were produced. Designed by Lee Noble (who would go on to open his own supercar building company Noble in 1999) and based on the company’s previous car the FGT, this has all the hall marks of a great car. Over its short life the car was produced with both the 4.4ltr and 4.7ltr power plants with the latter having 400bhp on tap.
This would accelerate it from 0-60mph in 4.1s and continue up to 200mph!!!! When you see the clip below you can see just how long this car is, its huge, and vary rare. Its surprising that in 2001 Ascari seemed to struggle to get rid of the last one, discounting it from £95,000 to £89,000!!!! Wonder what it’s worth now.
