Spotted today in darkest Somerset outside the premises of an Audi specialists, its Gene Hunts car! I doubt its the very car, just like all the clone 'Del boy' Reliant Regal vans and 'Starsky & Hutch' Ford Gran Torino's there are about....

Aha, AM Cars, they are one of the longest-established Quattro specialists in the UK. I wouldn't be surprised if they located and fettled said Huntmobile, having said that the front numberplate does look like it's been stuck (rather wonkily) over the original one...

2003 Renault Espace IV 2.0 petrol - living up to its reputation...

In my defence, it's a hoot to drive and you're never alone at a car show. In fact here's me standing by a Torino at Croxley Green last year 8)

But when all's said and done, it's easy to make it look standard again, then it's just a 60s Beetle with speedy bits underneath

Watching cars in the cinema or TV when you're young has a big effect :oops:

I quite like it. I adored the films as a kid and was instrumental in me buying a couple in my yoof. But at least your car is authentic and accurate to the original, you see loads of inaccurate Herbie replicas - mostly superbeetles. I saw a Daewoo recently with a 53 on it. I wasn't fooled.

I often see a dark red Ka with the stripes and 'ocho' numbers on it... silly. Should get a pic of that actually.
