Not for the faint-herated!
An oddball from 1974, please do not be too hard on British Leyland.

From the days when BL thought they coudl retain a 'high-end' badge in their range and that sticking a BIG grille made a car look more expensieve and exclusive. You can see why they went bust !!!

I'm going to guess that Matra moved it...because I didn't.

EDIT: Wouter confessed.

Do you think they actually realised they were calling themselves after a British Motor company that was once great but in the end only put out poor copies of other cars that showed no imagination, no skill and nobody bought them.

All I can say then is that the photos flatter it, drakkie.

These are ugly monstrosities in real life.
Like shoulder-pads and spandex in the 80s

Vandenplas did OK with the Bentley 3-litre, and then lost track somehow.
