Without Googling, from memory, it's the Rover 75 x 2, with the push-me, pull-you option.
Rover 150?

Quiet correct and it is written on the side of the car. I just thought it was a great name.

I believe it's a Bentley Mk VI, with a special coupe body by Facel.

Specifically the Bentley Cresta II, the second Facel Metalon bodied Bentley. The Crestas were the brainchild of Jean Daninos. Bentley eventually refused to supply him with chassis and launched the Continental. Daninos went on to make the Vega using his contacts from WWII to secure engines from the US.

Not a Hai. When I googled Hai I found out what the car was though. But that would be cheating.

Just did some superficial reading on the designer. Seems like the Hai and this car are related, and also the Alpine 310.
