Finally, a pretty one. You've had some real dogs lately.

 

Don't know what it is, but it's certainly good looking.

Yes it's beautiful - it looks Italian but it's right hand drive, or is the image reversed?! This one is really making me think.  :unsure:

Keep trying! Think of it this way... even if you can't find the answer, just by searching for the answer you'll probably learn something!  :)

Ten correct answers. Not bad! I've been lucky enough to see one of these in the wild. I also knew Winston Bolwell when I was a child.

It's easy enough to find them with a google search. A majority of them have survived, as far as I know. Approx 100 of the coupe were built. http://www.bolwellca...models_mk8.html

The wheels had really thrown me, thanks for the link. I now know that Boswell made them himself to copy the Lambo design. He had square holes, Feruccio had triangles. Maybe that's where the strength came from......

 

Boswell makes me think of Roswell, who remembers that?

Looks like a nicely done combo of Italy's Greatest Hits -- Ferrari front half, Maserati Khamsin/etc. razor edges, Alfa Montreal louvers, DeTomaso wheels, Michelotti design for cars like Iso Grifo, Lambo Miura windows, quite a few.
