Ex-works driver Scott Bradshaw owned this Honda Civic EF Rally Car, team mate of Mark Higgins in the 90’s in Civic EG works cars. The car is also reported to have previously been a Honda cup car from hence the low mileage of just over 20,000kms but there is no paperwork to verify this. 3rd OA in Isle of Man Rally 2017, it also featured as course car on the Manx in 2018. Eligible for rallying, it is currently used for Targa and Historic road rallies with local motor clubs. It has a current MUK passport valid until 2027. The EF is an important car of its era as no other manufacturer was producing a 1600cc hot hatch that produced 170bhp from factory exceeding that ultimate 100bhp per 1000cc. As far as we are aware the original EF works cars no longer exist. Branding has been removed for RR regs but Robbie Head assisted in ensuring the works livery was period correct and images will be included in the sale.

The car came over from the Isle of Man so I am the first UK owner. I have had a large amount of work done on the car to bring it up to a better standard which included a lot of jobs completed by Jamtech Motorsport. Since owning the car from late 2022, another £4000 has been spent. Due to low mileage and being an import, it is rot free, if you want perfection the paint/livery could do with some attention at some point. Being a rally car, it has seen some minor offs so the underside has some dents and ripples. Runs and drives really well. Quick car considering its lack of weight and would be competitive in class with he right crew.

The sale includes custom sill stands, two sets of wheels, A set of refurbished Compomotives with near new Hankook slicks and a set of other 4x100 15’s with a pair of road tyres. There are a number of spares included in the sale. To enter its next proper rally the car just needs in date seats and fire extinguisher. But it could be enjoyed as an RR/Targa car or used for rally show events as it is, It is also legal for historic classes. The sale includes a current V5C showing 0 previous owners, UK reg documents as well as all paperwork I have gathered in my ownership such as parts and servicing receipts. Built on a rare non sunroof shell this car is road legal, ready to be used and enjoyed. More images and videos are available upon request.
