A wolf in sheeps clothing?
The 190bhp Lag 1 V6 is a wolf in sheeps clothing,the engine is a cracker with just a few
problems to spoil the fun,the gearboxes can be weak though(as in so many Renaults of the same era unfortunately).
If I could afford the fuel bills then I'd have one,it's a shame that they never made an estate V6 though as a hatch wouldn't be big enough for all of us.
An ignition coil (also called a spark coil) is an induction coil in an automobile's ignition system which transforms a storage battery's 12 volts to the thousands of volts needed to spark the spark plugs.
This specific form of the autotransformer, together with the contact breaker, converts low voltage from a battery into the high voltage required by spark plugs in an internal combustion engine.
In older vehicles a single (large) coil would serve all the spark plugs via the ignition distributor.
In modern systems, the distributor is omitted and ignition is instead electronically controlled. Much smaller coils are used with one coil for each spark plug or one coil serving two spark plugs (so two coils in a four-cylinder car). These coils may be remote-mounted or they may be placed on top of the spark plug (coil-on-plug or Direct Ignition). Where one coil serves two spark plugs (in two cylinders), it is through the "wasted spark" system. In this arrangement the coil generates two sparks per cycle to both the cylinders. The fuel in the cylinder that is nearing the end of its compression stroke is ignited, whereas the spark in its companion that is nearing the end of its exhaust stroke has no effect. The wasted spark system is more reliable than a single coil system with a distributor and cheaper than coil-on-plug.
Where the coils are remote mounted they may all be contained in a single moulded block with multiple high-tension terminals. This is commonly called a coil-pack.

Yes the chap says it has GTi,s for breakfast and when he took me for a spin (complete with his driving gloves on) I have no cause to doubt him.
Too many people rely on full history, I say it is how a car feels on the day of test that matters and I may have all the problems which will surely dawn before long,better stick with the old plodder.
Must be a rare beast now though.
