Re: What Car do you drive??

Markornot - Wow - that is marvellous 😎 A mate inherited a Sud last year, but it isn’t pristine. He has a number of cars (inc E36 M3 and an E30 M3) but he loves the little Sud.

Re: C60 Elite 1000 LE - Prototype

The broader hour hand sword is interesting. It reminds me of the early rendered drawings that were teased prior to the rollout of the final Mk3 design.
