    "What's this car?" Official Thread

    I'm creating this thread - in part because of Vaigra - to have a decline in "what's this car" related threads.

    This thread is where you can mention any car that you don't know about, have pictures of or only descriptions of. You can ask other members to help you with these, and there's undoubtedly plenty that have enough knowledge to help you out.

    Here's a couple pics to start it off, a car I spotted in 2005, and have no idea of what it is. Any help would be appreciated. Original and zoomed pic provided.

    Pretty sure it's a Davrian Mk8

    Fellow Scot Andy Bryson raced A Mk8 in Aus regularly and in the Targa Tasmania and still competes in Imps in Australia regulalry I think ( not sure if he's still based out of Singapore ). I found a pic of Andy's but it's in Red ( but 8 yoears ago ). So this is either a new owner, new colour or another car.

    EDIT:^^^^^^ Found a pic of him in Targa Tasmania a few years back

    Daan, what do you think of my thread title editing? Better?

    I saw this one ages ago at the Zandvoort track. I thought it was a Fairthorpe, but I am not sure....

    This is a GTM Rossa. Mk II i think, but i am not too great with that kind of thing.
    Matra is wrong about it being a GTM Coupe.

    Ah, Thanks, but what is a Midas? A Kit-Car?
    Welcome to UCP

    Edit: I checked here
    Midas Gold

    but it might not be the car I am looking for...

    Sorry, must have been busy when that was posted first time

    It's GTM Rossa - another great little kit car with suprisingly good performance and handling

    No it's not a Fairthorpe. It's either a kit car called a Quantum or a GTM coupe...
