Welcome

''1991 - Raider model was launched. This was a special edition in honour of DIDIER AURIOLS wins and was finished in Motorsport blue colour coded wheels with blue flecked seats black carpet else note there is no decals and there is no truth in the ruhmers that the RAIDER was faster it was exactly the same engine .they where made in a limted edition numbers expected to be in there hundreds.

Raiders are sort after because of there limited numbers, if you had the chance to own some thing of a limited edtion then you more than likely would , 5's are rare in standerd form let alone the raiders''
