    If ever there was a car that was worth restoring.

    Being one of my absolute most favorite cars this is beyond sad. I think I'm going to take a few min and sit in a corner, smoke a cig and rock back and forth with my head between my knees.

    I guess, you can.. but i guess.. you would have to wait a while until, things are settled in Iraq. .. like the 575 that was stripped bare and left in the open.

    Located in my backyard. Why, would you be interested in
    buying this old beat up car? It cant be worth much, can it?

    Hahaha.... pick yourself up off the floor... just kidding. Not
    sure where it's located. I grabbed it off the internet a few
    years ago. Thought it was a cool photo.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but has this been restored yet? I'd love to see the original color rather than that sun faded red into pink.

    They had quite a few stashed away in Highgate back in the day,Assad's brother owned Witanhurst,the biggest house outside Buckingham Palace. A friend was the 'live in property manager'.The cars are long gone now.

    Nowadays the Russians have it...there is a 25 car underground garage for starters.
