No, it's not ex-Tony Pond or Malcolm Wilson, but to consumers of car magazines,
might just be THE Metro 6R4.
Those of you who know of the late Russell Bulgin, unarguably the greatest motoring journalist of the past 50 years, will doubtless be fully aware of 'Welsh Rarebit', a story he wrote in 1986.
For those of you who don't, Bulgin somehow managed to drag Ayrton Senna to Wales in 1986 - mid season - to test a load of rally machinery. This is the 6R4 from that magazine article.
Why was the story significant? Because it was brilliantly written and because it lightly pricked the bubble of Bernie's emerging F1 circus and its immaculate corporate presentation by juxtaposing JPS overalls against Welsh mud. It also remains a definitive text for the understanding of a man addicted to driving vehicles as fast as humanly possible.
As for the car itself, in light of recent comments on a Sport Quattro, I have to admit I haven't driven one! (Shameless! - Ed) But the value in this machine, to geeks like me, is that it was instrumental in Ayrton Senna de Silva and Russel Bulgin creating, for Cars & Car Conversions, one of the greatest features ever printed in a specialist car magazine.
Here's some footage from the day which leaked onto YouTube:
