...It's got to be a replica....... hasn't it ? :shock:
From a bit of a paddle around on classiccarcatalogue etc my best guess for that would be a Ferrari 365 GTS. Quite a rare beast.

looks very similar to this

"The S in the 365 GTS stands for the spider chassis and official numbers talk of 122 cars being produced altogether, of which 7 are right hand drive models. Because the price value between the two models, several berlinettas were converted into spider versions, also consequence of the fact that not many spiders were built to begin with. The main difference between factory made spiders and berlinettas is the slanted windshield

Indeed, it was a Ferrari Daytona, but I think it is one of the converted Berlinettas - so it's just not worth owning :rofl2: A rare outing for that particular car though as the MOT records show it clocking up only about 200 miles a year. :shock:

It's an easy mistake to make, they share a lot of design characteristics :-D

Proper "in the wild" spot.....This was one of the herd of Jaguars we encountered on Sunday in North Wales. The colour was a bit different, sort of a ........beige...then again the DVLA have it down as Gold. Date of first registration is 2015 but manufacture date 1965, so maybe an import.

Quite a few "in the wild" spots on the Scottish Leg of our holidays this week, and also a considerable quantity of "in the Zoo" spotting which I will post up on the "Classics under £10,000" thread.

The particular zoo in question was the Morris and Leslie Classic Vehicle and Machinery Auction taking place today at Errol airfield Perth which we managed to catch the viewing day yesterday.

The biggest "stir" from the live spottings was on a very sunny Sunday afternoon in Callender when three Ford Capris roared into the carpark by the river. The general public love a Capri!

....the aforementioned trio of Capri's in the wild...although even such a rare site as this fails to remove the mobile phone from examples of Homo sapiens in the background :) You may just catch sight of what may be Homo neanderthalensis, behind the wheel of the orange Capri :) ( where is the tongue in cheek emoticon :!: )

....and rarer in the wild than a Moray Firth Bottlenose Dolphin, we have Citroenus Zedexius at Rosemarkie, Black Isle looking out to the Moray Firth from the "Dolphin Mile" stretching along to Chanonry Point.
