    Found these amazing Vauxhall prototype pics from Makke's Garage website, which has a decent history of vauxhall cars and prototypes.

    Gorgeous car: looks like there's a fair bit of the old opel GT in there

    And what about the Vauxhall Equus from the late 70's??

    looks very much like a gull wing kit car I almost bought many years ago, I think it was called the eagle ss. the front end and cockpit are almost identical, the rear ed is a bit different though.
