Yes it is.

Not all it seems, I don't believe for a minute that it was built 30 odd years ago. And there are a number of things that don't fit with many other GpB cars that I have seen.

Having said that it is a lovely car.

The SMG cars, they have done a few now. The engines are built in the UK tho. Phillipe's prices are eye watering.
