the only v8 mk3 ive seen is a red one and its not what id call a mk3 as its a space frame with a mk3 shell without the floorpans put on top iirc it was for tarmac oval racing

its hard to tell if any of these are real especially the salloon one as you can get those sound boxes with speakers mounted under the car that make the noise of a v8

the MK2 with the Audi 4.2 in the boot is genuine, there's a vid of it on a rolling road, and a flypast.

the MK3 Saloon is fake.

My MK2 3.0 rocks when you rev it, V8 long moutn will rock loads in an astra.
