    Just stunning. Really like the body shape. Glad they chose the Manta as their basis. I wonder what a Capri from the same era would look like.

    Nice to see some swedish cars in here! Been fortunate enough to see this one go around a track a couple of laps at a trackday held by a magazine. The sound is....strange to say the least. Got some looks at it sitting in the pit area, very nice. One of my favourite cars! Also, got a magazine review of it, I could scan it in later, if you guys wanna have a look at it .....
