Looks to be the same car judging by the wheels. I can’t see any turbo badges on the top car? Where are you looking?

Owner is David Cavannagh and he only had it about 2 weeks before it started to backfire and set light to the rear bumper. He said it was completely gone in a minute or so.

I think SilverDreamMachine had 610 style lights, and it was badged Turbo in rear quarter windows.

Yes, I was looking at the rear window graphics.. the engine looks like 610 at first glance, but the top and exhausts are wrong...which is why I concluded espace engine.
Could well be the same car, but it’s “had some work” from standard.
No sign of boost pipes or inter cooler either,

Yes looks like the burnt one was an atmo or atmo conversion of some sort so probably not silver dream machine unless it was rebuilt.

The tungsten car from Historics Brooklands resold very quickly so you may do ok hanging out for the big ticket price.
