RIP

The best looking car to this day, atleast in that manga anime style i like. It's got a few damn big problems, but it's still a nice car.

Well, if you fix it up.

Wish i could've seen what the old bugger would've done if he did "invent" more cars.

respect:

Oh come on! It was shit!! Being in Back To The Future does not a good car make. Stainless steel (why?), rear-engine, gullwing doors (ooh, coz they work so well) and a crappy Renault Douvrain engine...the thing was an ego-fuelled mess. If you want a rear engined renault engined sports car from that era, get a Renault A310 - far more interesting.

Oh, RIP btw.

RIP but like DaGaffer I think you'll find it was more than the recession that caused its failure, basically the car was shit and he was wanted in the UK on fraud charges.

RIP my arse. Burn in hell more like!

The twat was a fraudster, and ripped syphoned off millions from his companies and other private investors into his own personal accounts.

He didnt even design the car ffs, that was down to Lotus.
