Duct over the rear wheel reminds me a little of the 550/575M

Rear reminds me of Lotus Elan M100?

Maybe it's just me though....

The squarness of the rear wing makes looks a little AM Vantage-ish (90's version) but the tapered rear screen gets me thinking Corvette again. Anyway, if it's got custom coachwork it might be totally irrelavant to what the car is based upon.

Maybe that's a Pininfarina badge just in front of the rear wheel.

for extra points, its based on an Omega (of all things!) and is powered by a twin-turbo version of the Omega's V6.

Well done!

I'll give you that. It is the Pininfarina Chronos - based upon the Lotus Carlton would you believe, so with a 3.6 litre Lotus developed twin turbo. Which should make it capable of 190mph or more (176mph in the Carlton).

Early 1990's.

I think the design cues for the 406 Coupe are there too.
