Wasn't the 14 GTL introduced in 1979, a year after this was released?

That’s interesting this doesn’t have a date but the back page mentions the 18 was due to be launched in the uk which might help date it.

It doesn’t mention their F1 team which by 1979 was beginning to get some results.

From Carweek, Car magazine's relatively short-lived offshoot to the weekly titles:

The Arna made it to 1997.

'Fantastic'. None of them lasted beyond 2010 (the cars that is, not the fleet managers, although a few too many jollies like this might also have seen some of them off prematurely).

R14 GTLs came out in the UK in Autumn 1978. My father bought an early-ish GTL, WTH882T, registered on 1 Dec 1978.

It survived until 1992. All our 14s had long lives, even though everyone knows* they were useless, terminally rotten and mechanical scrap after 18 months.
