Good one Dave!

They look like Vauxhall/Opel wheel trims off a senator or something?

A kit car of some description....?

You're barking up the right tree...lots of Vauxhall DNA there...the mirrors remind me of the MK2 Astra...

That's it...well done...from 1977.
I think they must have been influenced by the v6 A310 lights from the previous year..though the lines on the headlamp covers are horizontal like the GTA but pre-date the GTA by many years..
Shame the equus did not go to production.

cannot help thinking M. Redele or someone at Dieppe must have seen this....
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Panorama blue (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.
