I saw that on Thursday and took a couple of pictures. I don't think the colours did it any favours !

Hopefully I'll post more picts from the Dubai Motor Show tomorrow.

Nice adds with the Bristol and the Roller David. The Vertigo is a taste I have never acquired. It will certainly stand out in the cabinet though.

Interesting comparisons. I have that Tourer and I've always considered it one of my smallest cars. But it's surprisingly large compared to the Mini. :o

The tampo'd clear plastic discs are an interesting alternative for spoked wheels. I'm not aware of anyone else doing that.

I could easily live with the Vitesse (in fact I have an Altaya now) but the Spark is a nice upgrade.

Fine addition David. Very nice and one for the list

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Yeeez! :o

That PW's DB4, with the usual David MG wheel swap, looks better than the Vitesse, and almost as nice as that new Spark! 8-)

It's not a PW or Spark but.........................Cararama ! Yes it does have BBR wheels and close to it does stand well against the Spark DB4GT.

To my aged eye it has the touch of the Facel to it.

A very non-Alvis look to that one.

The Cararama DB4 stands up very well after the wheel swap. Didn't know they even did the DB4.

Matrix have added a an extra delicacy of line to Graber's Alvis. Windscreen seems to be a poor fit though. There was a handsome metallic grey 1:1 at Salon Privé three or four years ago.

Now I know why it was half price!.
Hadn't noticed, simple fix, thanks for pointing it out.

I will admit 99.99% of my collection all have numbers on their doors, so looking through these is an education for me. I do rather like the Matrix models.

Yes agree Dave, and the only reason I know that is because I saw a Facel at Paris Retromobile this year in the Baillon Collection.

In that typical colour of the time it does have a period charm and as another Solido fan I agree they've done a good job there.
