Andrew is the 'new' owner of the car having only owned it for ten years, people with a long memory may remember the car as TVM100 when it was owned by John Pilling, he had it since the mid eighties. The car was originally PKW190J and had that plate again when Andrew first bought it.

The colour and interior trim (black with pistachio piping) are original, this is one of the few cars to have piped trim when new.

I very nearly bought this car in 2000, Sarah hated the colour and I put my thumb nail through the cover sill, John was getting the body work done anyway but I was too impatient and rather stupidly bought an SP at Cropredy. I then had to wait a few years before getting my own FF.

Andrew and Lynne use the car regularly and the car has been seen on many rallies including on the continent.

Radiator airflow reduced by even more badges? :wink:

p.s. didn't realise what the chassis no. was - that makes it a really cool registration number!
