    Yes it lookes like an lotus but i don't find an lotus wich looks like the car on the picture. But it is small light and has the engine in the back .. middle... it was said that the car is an old rare expensive supersportscar. If its an kitcar like an lotus super seven it wouldn't be expensive and not rare i think .. ?

    Rare...more than likely. The kit car company probably made 4.3 of these kits before they went tango uniform. Expensive? Doubtful....well, perhaps to make, but not to buy now.

    I suspect it's a Farboud GT.
    A what?
    Check their website
    farboudsportscars.com

    This car was a prototype with a shape losely based on a Porsche.
    Their new mode on the website is more original.
    The engineering is now done by Chris Marsh, formerly with Marcos.

    It is the Farboud GT and was driven by Arash Farboud I believe.
