This car was unused and in dry storage for nearly fifteen years before being reactivated in July 2004. It was purchased with various other cars as a “job lot” by a Personalised Number dealer in order to obtain the registration number 7 WK. We bought the car (perhaps very unwisely!) on 28th November 2004. It has been sympathetically refurbished to provide an good example of the marque, complete with the patina of age. After such a long period of inactivity, many items no longer worked. Considerable “tinkering” has resulted in most now operating properly again! The coachwork has been resprayed in the original Shell Grey metallic.

The car is now used extensively in the UK and has also completed trips to Brittany (2006), Jersey (2007), Cognac (2009), Northern Spain (2010), Normandy (2011), Guernsey (2012), Isle of Wight (2012), Isle of Man (2015) and has covered over 18,000 miles since purchase in 2004.
