I like that car a lot. Ignoring the donor/base car (to remove purists from the equation) its a cracker.

In my opinion it needs an older 911 as I think the more recent ones are a bit bloated to...

It was a prototype to launch a design business so they don’t actually produce it which is a shame. Given...

New direction for DNA

I just checked the DNA site which has been down for ages.

They now have pics of a rather nice 356 Speedster with some modern/outlaw styling cues.

No other info on the site as yet but a very...

DeHavilland v6

I sadly missed the DeHavilland open day on Sunday as I live 9500 miles away.

I don't suppose there is any update on the present/future status of DNA?

Well that looks very nice indeed. LOTS of photos to follow please! Is the paint matte, or is it just short of final painting? Your car has turned out very well and I'm jealous.

Oooooooh me like!

Not cheap at 1200, but plenty cheaper than DeHavilland at 1650. I can't find them on the Intatrim site though. Where am I going wrong?

It's pretty ballsy to chop the whole front end! If you can do it in your garage you would think that manufacturers could fix it up in a pro workshop.

Thanks Ross. If the badges were fitted by dealers, I wonder if the practice was accepted by Ferrari? If so it would effectively mean that Ferrari badges on the Dino were ok.

Hi Dave,

I just noticed that the 246 has a Ferrari badge on the boot lid. I thought that the Dino never had any Ferrari badges? I might be wrong (it happens a lot!).
