Agreed ..it's already strangling them ...very difficult to build an authentic retro styled car based on new regulations ...My friend in Holland has had his business affected greatly by currently changing regulations ...it's happening everywhere ...cars like the MEV Replicar try their best , but a whole rear panel full of various different coloured tail lights ..amongst other concessions they have to make ..just doesn't do it for me when trying to create a retro looking vehicle ...

Its a real shame but we can't stop it ..

if i showed you guys the build photos of the 250 california when it was at the same stage as this car ,you wouldn't believe it was the same car (250)

brian knows what hes doing, this car will evolve as its being built,
there's no definate shape to follow like if your copying an already excisting car on the market. they do a bit, stand back have a look ,then might change the whole thing.
the base idea was the bmw 328 hommage but it will change as they go along and if the guy whos funding it likes what he sees, and what he wants.

I could never understand why they sold so many more Chimaeras than Griffiths.

Not over here, you still see quite a few Chimaeras but a Griff is a rare sight nowadays.

Well.... I like it! But then I always liked the Alfa SZ. Looks like a concept version - very similar to a pic on deviant art.
