I`m sorry, but IMHO disregarding any pedigree the car may/may not have, it looks to me more like a kit car than most replicas on this site??
One example being the dash board.:confused::(

Nice side pipes, interesting to see the VIN plate is still "Surrey, England" Hmmm, maybe not then!

It may have the pedigree, but it doesn't have the looks. I would prefer a Crenson if I could afford one. Looks more authentic.

What a shame that a remarkable car like this has to degenerate into a cartoon of it's former self.

The rear end is higher than my Pilgrim (which is too high for good looks), the side pipes on the blue car look as through they has come off a Ford Escort, the dash is deplorable and the rear lights are just bug ugly. They cannot even make a decent bonnet prop !

I would rather have almost any of the cars we see at Stoneleigh rather than this deplorable crap !

First impression was that it looked like a GD.................
Pilgrim style dash insert just isnt right
Ginetta rear lights look so wrong, including those frenched in reversing lights between boot and lights.!!!!

Yes, such a pity. I actually like the machined ali dash binnacle - the previous MK IV? had a similar one. But, sadly I have to agree with the other posts - those rear lights are truly awful. And it looks like some rusty mild was used on the underslung part of the read exiting exhaust pipes. These cars shouldnt have downturned rear exhausts - it looks like they are hung in shame - they should be straight out the back and in your face. Oh well I expect someone wil buy it, and scoff and the replicas. :-((

looks like an early sheldonhurst/GD mongrel with a not so modified imp exhaust ! YUK. No offence to any of the afore mentioned owners, but to say its the real deal ? Give me the shelby concept cob anyday, now that's automotive progression.

Oh dear, where did it all go so wrong!!!!

"it's a living, breathing legend for the 21st century", when was it ever about that?

That back end and those rear lights, not to mention the dash, mesh at the front.................................Who'll be the next to try when it folds again?

Managed to have a look at this.

There is so much wrong with it. The front of it looks like a Billy wide mouth Bass, and as has been said that the side pipes look like something that's been cobbled together.

Love the options list (Passenger reversing mirror) really is that an option !!! I wonder if the pioneer head unit is IPOD compatible... Can I put a DVD in instead....


The shots look Maltese in origin....


Are they offering two cars - one in aluminium and one in composite both in the same over the top shape ????

Glad I shopped at Dax and not at AC

I think it says a an awful lot on how this industry has progressed where now a production car does not seem to measure up to most of the "kits" being built by individuals. I think you all deserve a big pat on the back?
