    And another; Built by a 2nd cousin twice removed. And it's possible that a great(?x)-grandfather is the one who drove it (well, the 2nd one actually - since the original burnt to the ground right after it was sucessfully tested!) to London to obtain the very first patent for such a vehicle.

    And there's even a song to go along with it. Can anyone guess the name of it? :rolleyes: ...the song that is! :D

    Looks a bit like a Rolls Silver Shadow estate car but rear lights don't look correct.

    That's difficult.
    Maybe some sort of Rover/MG design study??

    I guessed you were trying to give me a clue. :)
    I was going through the Jag design studies - F type, XK180, RD6. etc and of course none matched up. I'd forgotten about the Kensington.

    Here's the next one.
