Wedges without popup headlights

Post by scimjim » Thu May 14, 2020 5:09 pm

While looking for cars with popup headlights for this thread, I keep coming across wedge type cars that I expect to have popups but don’t :shock:

Like this Ginetta prototype, the gorgeous T11 on Wolfrace or turbines 🥰

It’s the same (one off) prototype with some minor mods carried out after an accident. More info here

What others are there, preferably with the back story as many are prototypes/one-offs.
