Not a classic and not on the road, but maybe still of some interest. Walked by the showroom here in Zurich and clueless as I am I was unaware of this car

I have been scanning b&w negatives and saw, for the first time, that I had serendipitously caught an Interceptor in the background of this photo, taken in about 1978. For many years, my research in London was funded by the Muscular Dystrophy Group and one of their fund raising events was a bed race, medical students and others pushing hospital beds or other wheeled "vehicles" along a course. I think it began in South Kensington. Anyway, I had never noticed this Interceptor. I can make out the letters of the license plate - UGK and the first number is 5 or perhaps 6. Is there anyway to find out who owned it?

There's only one interceptor with reg starting UGK still on the road and that's UGK574M. I wonder if it's that one?

Was up for sale in 2015: https://www.joc.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=21649&p=157851&hilit=ugk#p157851
