    Nice film, I think we’ve posted it before but a worthy repost, that SV is the Prototype 4758 which we used to own.

    Joe - 666RU reappearing brings a new question - what is the identity of the red QV in Malaysia registered WAR86, as we thought it was this car? Also, do you know of any more cars stashed in lockup garages in the UK or have they all come to light? I’ve seen four recently - there was one or more near Cardiff I hear. Robert

    From speaking with the original ad executives at Alpine there were several cars used in a variety of the campaigns. As the campaigns took off the executives tell a wonderful story of making a board presentation on why they should actually go out and actually purchase one. The Alpine Corporation is documented to have purchased two cars. The first I do not have an identification of, the second was the Downdraft I have been the caretaker of for the last 20 years.

    The other car almost looks like an artists rendering. Certainly, the red at the back below the boot where the US toasters might have been is confusing - I've never seen that.

    I think you might be onto something. Certainly unusual & quickly identifiable if it exists.

    A few other things don't look right to me either - the front wheel appears to be set back in the wheel arch, and right at the front is almost a Ferrari 308 like black bumper
