"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

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

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...
