    Well one consolation is that you can play Auto Id solitaire - you can select your own subject then try to work out what it is!
    Thanks to Michael and Bill for the information and thanks Matt for posting it in the first place and for brightening up my evening! 
    Cheers,
    -Don.

    And did it inspire the first Audi TT?

    Yes, not a Pegaso for sure. And I agree, it's trying to look like something it's not.
    Cheers,
    -Don.

    So what is it?
    I'd got as far as looking for special bodied Simca Arondes...
    Cheers,

    Hi Michael
    I think you missed me off the list! I got both the French and Brazilian variants and you Emailed me with a yes to the latter.
    Thanks for putting these up,
    -Don.

    Well I'm sure this isn't based on a Porsche!

    Yeah, I never imagined anyone would attempt such a thing on a 911. Like another band trying to cover a Beatles song - it just isn't going to work.
    So we'll overlook the fact that this isn't a production car 'cause it was so interesting.
    It looks like it might have been a road car not a 'pure' racer which may explain why when I passed through Aachen in '68 the streets were deserted.
    Keep 'em coming Michael!

    No idea. It looks dreadful in a way I can't imagine any manufacturer endorsing.
    Can't wait to find out what it is.

    Yes, very familiar.

    Lovely colour choice. Nice.

    Got it now!
    I should have known! I knew what it was but couldn't find the maker so thanks for the clue! You live and learn...
    Cheers,
    -Don.

    A dreadful thing...
    I knew it was a Fairthorpe (founder was Air Vice Marshall  Donald Clyfford Tyndall Bennet, CB, CBE, DSO) but the Electron that it was based on didn't have all the hideous fibreglass and plop all over it - and sure enough it's a reincarnation from the 80's masterminded by his son, Torix. It was designed to fit a V8. I'm not making this up....
    Thankfully this particular one only has a 2.3 litre Ford V6 in it.
    Thanks,
    -Don.

    Depends where you look, but I dredged the manufacturers name from the dark corners of my memory after a few days trying not to think about it!
