Llandow Laps main article banner pics Ep3

Brace yourself for perhaps the most gorgeous, wallet-troubling face off-yet, in Episode 5 of Llandow Laps. This time, Chris will be setting lap times in restomod creations from two of the UK’s most respected specialists: Tuthill’s 993-generation 911-based SCRS; and the Alfaholics GTA-R. As you might expect with a combined cost of nearly £1 million, both cars have been extensively re-engineered, with the Tuthill 911 SCRS’ 3.8-litre flat-six producing 324 PS, and the featherweight, carbon fibre-bodied GTA-R pumping out 243 PS courtesy of its 2.1-litre twin-cam inline-four.

It might look like the plucky Alfa isn’t in with a chance, but at just 797kg compared to the 911’s 1,215kg heft it should make a worthy competitor, or at least a wonderful thing to watch sliding past the majestic, caravan-filled vistas at Llandow.

Put your headphones in, turn up the volume, and join us for another grin-inducing Grudge Match, with the added bonus of Sound Recordist Ren’s famously dextrous digits.

Please note: Collecting Cars does not condone any drinking games which revolve around Chris’ use of the word ‘beautiful’ in this episode.

Have your say!
