I’m quoting this again in full because a Rayton-Fissore Magnum is SPOT OF THE FLIPPIN YEAR and it only got four likes.

Pure AS gold.  Didn’t @wuvvum have one for a while?

Never heard of them before, looks like a Fiat Uno on steroids

I spotted this rarity in Rome a few days ago!

 

What the heck is that?  I spy what appear to be bits of BX...Iveco Daily front indicators?  Guessing some locally made odd Heinz 57 ...

More than just the indicators - the Magnum was built using the shortened chassis, drivetrain and braking system of the Iveco Daily AWD - all the ingredients you could ever want for your Italian competitor to the Range Rover...

Apparently 6,000 built over 18 years of production, of which 1,200 were the V8-engined Laforza.

Never seen one in the metal either!

Fascinating.  Always fun when you encounter something totally unknown from smack in the middle of what you consider to be the time period you had decent knowledge about...

All the points to the first person to spot one in the UK then...

Taken in the Rolls Royce car park in Derby.

So most likely owned by a Safety engineer Or a Engine Health monitoring Engineer or a project manager.

In Buckingham today, looked tidy and I followed it round Buckingham and it turned into Tesco's so my guess is it is in regular use.

 

It is, I've seen that one in and around that area a few times.  Wasn't hanging around last time I saw it either.

Anyone on here own a silvery blue G reg Hyundai Stellar with plate ending in XMM? Haven't got the footage off me dashcam yet but fuck me was it fit, probably never going to see one on the roads again as long as I live.

Edit: Think the full reg was G876 XMM?

Spotted this awesome Cavalier at my local 24hr asda. It just so happens that I tried to sell this one on here not too long ago, but it went for more on eBay. Wasn’t mine but I could have bought it. Looks like it’s giving it’s next owner a Stirling service.
