This one? I thinks it’s Beaujolais isn’t it (a later GTE colour)?

About time we had an update :)
Not much news in general but two Coupés on the web at the moment ...

One for sale in Preston at 8500 sterling, looks too cheap to me for a lovely car
Chassis 834 reg KPR 701G

The other appears in an article 'Reves de Voitures' and I am unable to identify it.
Photo taken at Lëtzebürg Old-timers Autojumble in Luxembourg but it is not necessarily a Luxembourg car.
There are no Luxembourg Coupés on the register.
Anyone recognise it?

And as this is technically a coupe, I’ll put it here - has the Triplex GTS eventually been sold?

Apparently it is in Switzerland and will be appearing at this show soon

The Luxembourg car appears to have an interior light on both B pillars. I think standard was only the drivers side B pillar, so making it a slightly more recognizable feature. And the red interior of course :)

The Luxembourg car is chassis 114.

The one in the background of that 5A advert is one of the pair advertised over in Ireland as discussed elsewhere on the forum

Wow, loads of material there, thanks chaps.
I'll have a look at the other thread for the background car.

One dutch one (bronze green) is recorded, with question marks on its double identity - scimitar coupé lhd holland 94-88-DG cf 72-32-ZP chassis 0414
original dutch car, stanford hall ‘84 wim deinum, re-registered 94-88-DG (?)
was 72-32-ZP (?), original dutch car reg jan ‘67, last owner change ‘79
White cars being rather common I'll have to research the other.

The body shell looks ok, and not much to dismantle to remove it ;-)

Has 66OGLE still its british number plate? (was in USA and now as you say apparently in Switzerland)

The Luxembourg car certainly has the characteristics of Oliver Pfeiffer's car, very sad to see it in that state when it looked like this only a few years ago ...

660GLE is marked on DVLA as exported - if the number plate is on retention I didn’t think it would show against the car online?

Here it is in 1992 at Curborough!

Nice!
Now the car is converted to LHD, still in 'go fast' condition including a very small tank.

I am going to post an update of the register, but I keep finding things to add / change :)

Here is chassis 0487, I think the first photo in Ben C's ownership.
