Given that is an “off the shelf” wide body kit from RWB these don’t seem as unique I thought they were.

I thought that “Number One” was the first UK built RWB. It is a grey 993 and was at a PH Sunday Service at Silverstone. I saw the car there but subsequently heard that Akira Nikai had attended the Sunday Service (this last bit may be just a rumour).

It was not built by this new RWB UK entity so maybe why it has been overlooked.

Edit:
Seems the bit about Nikai san was not just a rumour:

He was definitely there, I was there too and saw him, smoking a ciggy as one would expect .... I thought that 993 was his first UK build too, not sure why this orange 964 claims to be the first
