I thought the same thing but then as you say thinking about it and having converted it it's nearly £500.

Here is a good link for converting prices.

Just used this as I was speaking to a guy while getting the car MOT'd who got his 3.0S brand new for £3100, which apparently in todays money is around £18300, still seems reasonable for an amazing car! :lol:

I was thinking the same.
It might have been the way the press cars lights were wired up. Back in those days, it wasn't unknown for press cars to differ in specification from the normal cars on sale to the public. The car could even have been a pre-production car made before the final spec of production cars had been determined. Does anybody know for sure, as a Google search of the registration doesn't throw up any results. It's not one of the better known VHK cars.

A bargain!
You can't buy much for that money nowadays. For example, the base model Toyota GT86 is over £22K.

What colour are they?

Could have, but I didn't see the sidelights come on first.

Great video, brilliant to see the press GL & S together, would love to own either. Tester likes them too, good man.
