Since 2017 Vauxhall Astra BTCC
Good to see Vauxhall back in BTCC. 2016-11-23 16:15
Autobianchi Bianchina Cabriolet
Autobianchi Bianchina Cabriolet but not sure which series. 2016-11-20 19:17
1979-1983 Daimler Sovereign MkIII
Daimler grille and bootlid handle. The type of rear seats rule out a Vanden Plas version (or the 1983+ 4.2). Plate check gives engine as 4235cc so this is definitely Sovereign (also given by plate check).

Daimler Sovereign was available with the Series 3 body from 1979-83 but Daimlers with this body were built until 1992 (for the Double Six). Car is dated 1982 by the check. I'll put in the range for the model, but if preferred it can be the range for the body.

D.F.P-NSU seems to be the correct name, it's a prototype based on an NSU 1200 TT:

2012 Audi A1 quattro
Looks like an A1 quattro (Limited edition of 333 from 2012) to me. 2016-11-02 11:32
2009-2015 Lotus Evora
2009-15 (not an Evora 400), as far as I can tell there's no visible differences between a standard Evora and an Evora S. It's Sports Racer trim (introduced at the very end of 2012) by the two tone. 2016-11-02 11:26
Since 2016 Fiat Tipo
I'm adding the English versions of colours but is it a problem if the names are not the same (so not translations)? For example on the UK Fiat site Bleu Méditerannée is named Elba Blue (when the translation is Mediterranean Blue). 2016-11-01 19:54
2002-2004 Marlin Makaira
I can't find much info on this car. According to Parkers it was listed on the market from 2002-2004 and according to other sites there was only one ever built.

EDIT: Found this webpage giving more info on this: marlinmakaira.info/index.html

1975-1978 Jaguar Sovereign Coupe
Sovereign for me, we can just see a badge saying 4.2 next to the numberplate. According to: www.xjconvertible.com/history.php 1,677 built with 111 in LHD. 2016-10-29 04:12
Jaguar unknown
It's a 1973-78 XJ-C converted to being a Convertible. These didn't come from the factory but aftermarket coachbuilders like Lynx (who also made the Eventer, a kind of XJ-S Estate) and Avon. 2016-10-29 04:04
Citroën Unknown
The plate says 1970 car (imported in 2012) but I don't know the actual year range.

I'm not quite sure how this game works yet so sorry if I made a mistake with the two I posted. Are there any rules on age of pics or whether cars from motorshows or classic car shows are allowed?

Really like the new look. :beer: 2016-08-20 04:38
1992-1995 Rover 800 Coupé [R17]
1996-99 models were a facelift with a slightly different grille and taillights as well as different engines. Separate page I guess? 2016-08-04 17:50
1995-1999 Rover 200 MkIII [R3]
I'm going to try and do as many Rovers as possible (I was working on those when I was first posting), do some Austins and Morrises (though these are more difficult to find info for) and also go through some Vauxhalls (but those are basically duplicates of the Opels so fairly straightforward). 2016-08-01 14:40
1994 Rover Metro Cabriolet (100 Cabriolet) [R6]
Unveilled in 1992 but not sold until 1994. 2016-08-01 13:40
Since 2008 Mitsuoka Himiko (Roadster)
Sold in UK as 'Roadster' since earlier this year:
2016-08-01 01:43
1984-1987 Opel Kadett GSi 1.8 A7 [E]
sajmon14 is right, it has Opel on it only because it was entered by the GM dealersport team (this was towards the end of time that there were dealers that sold both Opel and Vauxhall). It was badged as a GTE (the Vauxhall version) and the picture is from the 1988 Lombard RAC Rally where entry number 15 was a Vauxhall Astra GTE raced by Derek Bell and Micheal Nicholson.

There was an Opel Kadett in that rally but from the GM Europe team, no 23 raced by Mats Jonsson and Lars Backman.

2012-2014 Ford Falcon MkVII [FG]
The range of models here is quite complicated, the XR6 and XR6 Turbo may need to be listed separately but they have the same motors as the G6 and G6 Turbo (but with a manual gearbox).

For the record, front view is G6 and rear view is XT.

2011 GPR Motorsport Proton Gen-2 BTCC
In the UK the road car is sold as Gen-2 Persona. 2012-09-29 19:10
1990-1993 Ford Orion MkIII
I think it was 1993/94 for the Orion/Escort change over. The Orions with the facelift had a chrome bar across the grill that the later Escorts lacked.

Nice! I'd only seen the Coupe before and didn't know about this. 2012-05-15 04:04
Since 2011 Chevrolet Cruze (Cruze Sport6) [Delta II]
I'd suggest that model origin for this should be Australia, as the hatchback design was developed by Holden. 2012-04-08 21:00
2012 Honda Crosstour
IMO, the new European Civic is a retrograde step from its excellent predecessor in styling terms. In Europe, Honda are increasingly seen as struggling. No one knows what they stand for any more. 2012-04-08 17:09
2008-2015 Renault Laguna Coupe [X91]
Sold in the UK but only until the start of 2011. 2012-03-19 21:53

I see one of these most days on my way to work. Numberplate is V6XGT IIRC. 2012-03-14 19:41

Want. 2012-03-04 04:15
2008-2012 Volkswagen Passat CC (CC) B6 [Typ 3C]
I saw one of these the other day. It had two aerials and blue LEDs in the grill so I think it must have been some kind of unmarked police car. 2012-02-28 14:03

2007-2010 Dodge Avenger Series II [JS]
There's a mistake. The Avenger was sold in the UK: www.autotrader.co.uk/search/used/cars/dodge/avenger/postcode/b66he/radius/1500/quicksearch/true

And I think most European states as well.

Saab No more GM cars for me ever again. :(

EDIT: The frown is for Saab. The fact that I won't buy a GM car probably merits a smile.

2008-2011 Infiniti FX Series II
We don't get any RWD versions here (probably applies to all of Europe) and US only lists 35 as being available with it. 2011-12-09 21:50
2011 GRMN Sports Hybrid II

I quite like the look of this car. Is the interior lifted straight from the old MR-2?

1959-1963 DAF 600
It MIGHT have been sold here.

The later ones definitely were.
