Not RV8 although similar. That B is for Bertone, isn't it?

Far too difficult with just this to go on unless you really know your wheels...so straight off a bit more of a clue.

There will be better wheels, but this is a £450 car, and the wheels themselves with the patina are unique to this version of model.
So Whats this then :?: clues/more revealed with guesses. Precise model and version name required.

Yes very very warm Mick, but which version :?: Très cher!

The colour was one of 5 available and was Nordic Green...

That's the one, more expensive when new than the Clio Williams.

Came across it on Petrolblog


Well done!

Looks to be a very comfy small car but probably went pretty well!! I had a 1.4 RT Auto for a while and it was a decent drive:

We I guessed a SAAB convertible on the Lights thread so I'll stick with that.

Weird, my daughter had one of those too - even in the yellow of the first image. Never occurred to me that it might be the SAAB.
She likes her cabriolets. Called the SAAB the Bananamobile.
