Was this you I saw on A404 near Henley yesterday? Looked and sounded beautiful
More to the point was that your car on Top Gear right near the stage?

Looking at the side windows It looks like the Top Gear car could be a Tribute. It doesn’t appear to have any nose stripes so don’t think it’s the Mirage one. Anyone?

Yes Mirage GT has a quarter light like a genuine 250.
Tribute has sliding windows unless it has the Grassbank upgrade with electric window and quarter light as in photo here.

And a Mirage doesnt use a Z3?

No, it’s got its own chassis and one piece body and looks very nice quality. Would need IVA too and home built cost around £120k I believe but what a beautiful looking car. BMW M52 or 54 straight six power plant, not a V12 but engine would look lovely like this!

Definitely not a Tribute - the screen angle is correct, the nose is the right length and those wheels look like Boranis.

It’s got sliding side windows like some of the Competizione cars - Ross Brawns car can be seen with the sliding windows in when on track. Tribute sliding windows have the Land Rover window locks which this doesn’t have.

GTO Engineering car?

Not on a par with some of your exotica but my little toy comes back from the paintshop next week.

They'll be black with a little red piping on the outer edges.


More work to do but at least I've started.

Post some pics when it’s done, go careful with that nice new paint.
This was my pride and joy 4 years ago. 4.7 V8 sounded gorgeous. Should’ve kept the reg number.
