Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Sorry, not much news lately.
Here's one strange item from a Moroccan web site :shock:
It is a Coupé which has been for sale in Lyon for years, not very seriously.
The ad has been cancelled so it is possible that it has at last been sold -
probably not in Morocco

Mystery Car

Now that IS interesting.
And the mystery car is much prettier than the Hooper.
The rear wings also look like the Hooper, and not like a normal SP250.

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

NO, IT'S A GENUINE PHOTO !
In France rally cars often run without number plates (probably so the insurance company doesn't know they compete)
