2001 Birkin S3

Recommended Posts

I never thought this day would come, but it is time to sell my Birkin. I just don't get enough opportunities to drive it here on the North Olympic Peninsula. This is a 2001 BIY component built car with 23,000 miles. I've been its caretaker for over ten years, and upgraded nearly every system in the car. When initially tuned, it made 178 HP on the wheel dyno. Sadly, I've never tracked this amazing car.

The car has a full hood with side curtains and a half-hood (Birkini). I also have a spare wheel carrier and a bolt-on rear cargo rack that go with the car.


Potentially available, as well, is a 7x14 enclosed trailer with ramp gate and interior tie-downs.

Beautiful car (and great price)! And that's a lotta hp for a Zetec, but consistent with your mods. What is engine's redline? I'd love it if mine made that much power! Good luck with the sale. Ideal time of year to do so.

Randall was gracious enough to let me drive this car when I was considering which route to go. It is an excellent car with all of the development issues resolved. The availability of the trailer is a real plus. It’s just the right size.
