elements of NUMMI Corolla, A40 Celica, Ferrari 365 GTB/4 in there. Excellent alloy design, those HUGE badges on the rear must be an attempt to keep people from asking "What the heck is that?" in every parking lot.

Love the tiny Union Jacks on the fenders. Hate the giant American safety reg buggy pushers.

Wow, how did that get there!
What a horrible car. Looks like it was designed in sections by two or three different blokes, and only the guy on the rear kept his mind on the job / wasn't smashed.
The front end looks so miserable.
I think the giant badges are a warning to those behind to keep distance
bonus feature: tell car burglars h thieves "move along, nothing to see here"

I KNEW one of you guys would find one of these eventually!
Best of material, for sure. (even though you guys have ceased doing that due to how busy you are)

a sure sign that your car is a good one: when it's found this at a donate-your-wreck-to-charity lot.

there's another one of these in town. i've seen it driving twice, plus offered for sale on ebay.

thought this was it, but it's not. so keep your eyes peeled.

thanks, guys.

Nice car I wonder if it's comfortable for the front and rear passengers . I'd love to hear that European horn

This is unbelievable. And does it remind anyone of Jeremy Clarkson's "Full Throttle" video? @18:17 http://putlockertv.ist/watch/oxQ6Q8Gn-jeremy-clarkson-at-full-throttle.html and again at 44:39.

These are SUPER rare! Less than 800 were made in 1980, they sold 400 that year, then a couple hundred more of the leftovers in 1981. The rest got modified to RHD (very easy to switch over on this car) and sent to Australia! What mess the British car industry was in at this time.

Can't see one of these without the Human League "Don't You Want Me" song playing in my head.

I really appreciated them thinking outside the box AMG wheels for sale on every single occasion I have called them since; they have had superb customer service. They are just good quality people. They went above and beyond on each and every occasion since their original conversation with me. I would recommend them to anybody…..
