Ziyaad Jagot sent through pics of his 2.8i Citi. Yes, I know that sounds strange, but that’s only because he doesn’t use the more common term of a Mk1 VR6. Ziyaad says: “Ever since I first heard the gurgle of a VR6 back in primary school, I always dreamed of owning one. As the years went by, the passion only grew stronger, I became obsessed with the idea of a transversely mounted, narrow angled six-cylinder.” I can safely say he’s not alone in his plight, there are many who feel this way, but not everyone actually does something about it. He continues “Then I went bonkers… completely nuts! How about the weight of a Mk1 equipped with the smoothness and refinement of a VR6?” That’s just what he created!
The Mk1 obviously features the sweet sounding VR6 lump but the extra make it even cooler. It’s been fitted with new pistons, a Gotech management system, a NEX coilover suspension (damper adjustable), VR6 brakes upfront, a complete s/steel 76mm exhaust system, 17″ ATS Aqui rims coated in black, red and white, and a customised intake manifold (matching the rims). He says: The car is smooth and refined on cruising, scud missile when booted!” We believe every word he says!
