Comments
Driven by Yvan Muller for the opening two rounds of the 2005 BTCC before being converted to a two-seater and used for demos. Muller would switch to V2005-016 for the remainder of the season.

The car continued to be used as the team's demo vehicle until mid-2006 when it was raced by Turkish driver Erkut Kizilirmak for 2 rounds of the BTCC.

Following Kizilirmak's races, the car was converted back to a two-seater.

The car was added to Vauxhall Heritage Collection at Vauxhall Motors in Luton during 2010.
Vehicle kept in open storage from 2015 until sold to Simon Bloomfield in 2017.
