Good spot Steve - rare cars are they to see out and about. Loads of "normal" C4s...

Spotted this rare(ish) beast today:

What made it stand out for me is that it is a 2.2 HDi version...

Normally they're the petrol versions that I seem to see...

I am really liking 406 Coupes at the moment, a 2.2HDi would be a superb choice. 8-)

Pretty pretty. If only it had proper suspension, as was intended.

Terrific looking car.

That is a sad sight, though I do like to see such finds :lol: Looks to have been there many years, its a very early one to. Is this in the UK?

I spotted a C5 today, a black one on a 56 plate. It was in the oncoming lane, stopped at a set of traffic lights. AT the same time there was a C5II VTR in silver. Had I not of been driving I would have taken a picture, sadly I was driving a Ford :shock:

I do like to see naturally decayed vehicles, there are many in my Photostream, but this one was relatively intact until somebody burned the barn down in May this year. It says in the news story that the barn was derelict and the fire wasn't being treated as suspicious but only one of these can be true. Looking through the remains I'd say it was being used for storage by a neighbouring business.

It is in the UK, in Fife.
