Is that what they call a G60? Or is that different again?



G60 refers to the G-lader supercharger used on these cars.

Very nice example. Hopefully I should get mine out the barn and running over Xmas with a new 1.9 lump.
G refers to the shape of the chambers of the supercharger and the 60 refer to 60mm width compression chambers.

Thought I recognised your username from somewhere - turns out it's from e38!

Nice Rallye mate. Looks tidy. What's the interior? Looks like a 'rado bench but can't make out the fronts.
