Good Article but wrong about the Ro 80s headlights, Mk 1 had twin lamps & 1970 - ON had rectangular & Fog lights, never mentioned the Micro-switch in the gear stick knob this operated the Servo for the clutch which took some getting used to, or the Inboard front discs brakes & stainless bumpers! :o

If you want something done properly ........ :roll: A car that was decades ahead of it's time and really deserves more recognition today IMHO.
