Just watched it through a couple of times. I've seen clips of it before, but never the whole thing. The car being driven (quite slowly) was the show car, hand built by visioneering. Note the sliding windows, central hand brake, different wings, (with the side markers at he ext ram ends) black panted steel door edges, hand trimmed interior with softer seats, etc. etc. Many of these features are also on the lotus built Pilots. 19 and 20.

Incidentally, Pilot 20 could be available for a new owner…it should really be in a private collection or a museum somewhere. It seems sacrilege to use it on the road. Please get in touch if you are interested.

Would the newly revamped Gaydon or Coventry museums be interested Chris?
