eBay, For Sale, Tornado | Thu, 31 Jul 2008 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
Due to immigration of the owner, the original Tornado demo car of their Mclaren M6GTR replica is for sale in Oxfordshire, UK (eBay #120288988375). It seems to be in great shape with a current MOT, and a new 440 HP 357 V8 and 21 Turbo transmission, and a recent year-long conversion giving it fixed headlights and a rear end modification (take a look at the previously posted Tornado to see what a difference it makes).

Mark in West Midlands, UK is selling this McLaren M6 GTR replica by the British company Tornado who made them from 1984 through 1992. Mark’s is running a 3.5 Rover engine (bored out to 3.9) mated to a Renault 30 transaxle. The rear end bodywork has been reduced by 4″ to improve visibility, and the suspension has been redone with adjustable coil overs to improve its track performance. He’s asking £5,000 with proceeds going to finance a new auto project.
Email him at mark.h****@***.com if you’re interested.
I like M6 (some pictures of the original) clones in general, but I have to admit that I prefer the Montage and the Maurader interpretations because the square roof and general blockiness of the Tornado throws off the aesthetics a bit for me. Still, I sure would be happy behind the wheel of a Tornado!!!
