SP2 Highwayman is what i was after. i’ll give it you, becaus SP is hard enough.
Ladies and gentlemen the ShittyShops™ have returned.
it’s ridiculously familiar, but i can’t for the life of me place it
First clue: Based on an altogether more famous car.
Nope, not the Capri (or a Mercury )
Also nope to both, but very very slightly warmer.
i was getting strong kit vibes, but i think i’m barking up the wrong tree with that assumption
Not a Tasmin.
It’s not a kit no in that it was put together by a company and sold as a product. It is based off another car as I say however, with the custom body parts and an engine swap from the base car manufacturer’s family of engines.
is it some kind of gemballa-y, RUF-y porker 924/944?
No, not a Porsche. Not a fastback style thing.
now you see that was my original thinking, hence why i was thinking kit car likes, like the Clan Clover or Clan McCoy
any more hints?
Aye, it’s German
long shot, but Irmscher or Karmann??
No, neither of the above. The company is still going in the automotive business and has UK ties.
this is truly tough.
