I think silver with brown interior would be right up there though :D

I have seen this car on the forum before so I am sure it is well known.
It looks like it has quite a few mods with a 3000cc motor so not sure if it is a rotary.
Up for sale at a whopping £12995

that's a really old ad... first saw it back in 2009 and it was already an old ad then! Same as that white one on the same site.

I hope this ad is more recent than the last one I posted :oops:
A series 3 supposedly for restoration but I think the seller is optimistic that anyone would take this project on.
Only good for spares and it looks like there might be a TWR body kit if it were salvageable

No TWR body kit. It looks there might be a TWR front spoiler only. Or I am wrong ?

I doubt if this is on our register as it has been off the road for 21 years

You're right with that one.
DVLA says last taxed 1998/1999.
Also DVLA says 1st registered Dec 1991. That means an import car or a clerking error?

Many thanks for the spot.
