That is just a plain insult to lovers of motoring history and historic racing cars.

Don't worry Nik, it will stop - when the electricity runs out, which is going to be sooner than everyone thinks.

I can’t image computer generated V8 noises sounding particularly authentic.
How will it pass an IVA test with regards to protrusions and lighting.
As Roger was saying we will be running out of the electricity especially in the SE. It wasn’t that long ago they thought we would be rationed in trying to keep the lights on over the winter. Madness.
I wonder what price it would be without the electric motor and batteries.
I guess it will make Gerry’s offering rather attractive.

Juergen Mohr was producing the AC MkVI based on his Mohr Cobra, which was a modified version of the Dax Supertube.
Mohr’s company, Gullwing gmbh was producing Mercedes replicas until that was ‘shut down’.

This makes interesting reading!
