Which ones got the v12? And what's the story behind it? I knew the prototype was v12 4wd but thought that was the only one.
BIG 220 - burgundy with fixed headlights - is the V12 car - some people claim it's the show car but I don't believe it is??

The production cars are shorter and have a different wheelbase - fitting a V12 would be a challenge - the showcar was allegedly a non-runner anyway?

Don Law runs 220 racecars even now - my guess is someone found an engine and grabbed an angle grinder and the rest is - erm - whatever it is??




The V12 prototype referred to. I believe it's on display in the Heritage Motor Centre Gaydon. It had mouldy tyres...
