    For some time now I've had a thing for fat-****d guppy looking cars flying under a flag of convenience; but I like Picasso & Moore too, so I won't be losing any sleep if my taste is questioned :D:D

    Saw this at Silverstone Classics last year. It is AWESOME in the flesh and looked very well built.

    Good to know. The base price is 90K which whilst not low, seems reasonable(ish) for what is pretty much a super car. But I suppose the real "on the road" price, with all the toys, may well be different :dk:

    Is that the same firm which was around in the 70's?
    Trident
    Car company
    Trident Cars Ltd was a British car manufacturer based originally in Woodbridge then in Ipswich, Suffolk between 1966 and 1974 and again after being restarted in 1976 from premises in Ipswich. The new company stopped production in 1977-78. Wikipedia

    The fastest diesel sports car in the world can run 2000 miles on a single tank-- does really depend on the size of the tank no? ;)

    A mate's older sisters boyfriend had one, a Venturer IIRC, took me for a short ride. I was very impressed I was as a non driving teenager at the time.
