We had a couple of 5 GTLs back in 1979/80, a three door and then the five. Nice cars but bodywork a bit poor and the N-S engine layout made some servicing tricky.
This seems an exciting update, I would certainly consider one of these if it ever hits the showrooms. The grill on the bonnet is a nice design throwback. I wonder if the bonnet will hinge at the front, like the old models?

There's some Flair to that design.
I predict the launch will be a real Event.

They’ve told us at the launch we will be staying in tents!

I mean really, Camp, Us?

Love it, but this would be a winner
That would look great with rally light pods & Philips livery, being ragged around the Tour de Corse.
Just missing the soundtrack.

Agreed, the "wurrrr" of the electric motor and screeching of tyres would lose some appeal, but not a lot, could always do an engine conversion on it hehe
