I presume the badge is either Vignale or Sincar ?

According to Richard Calvers latest book, LHD cars built for SINCAR did have a Vignale badge which matches the outline visible in the picture. Whether that was on all of those cars is not known.
Notice also the different (lower) location of the INTERCEPTOR badge on the front grille.

I already love my Interceptor, but I must admit I would have swapped it then against a Bizzarini (or Grifo ?)...and even more so now !
The sales guy does not seem very busy , though...

Watching a Bizzarrini powersliding around Goodwood, alongside a 250 GTO doing the same, is a memory that will always be precious to me. Not a posers car, it combined looks, performance and an unbeatable name!

I think the sales guy is awaiting an incoming transmission on his antenna...

Hi Steve.
It could be one of our two jensens (2603 or 2606). Do you have more information about this photo ?
It's a very nice one.

I know its a bit geeky but the wiper park position of the cars in Paris is different from the Geneva picture.
