jaguar.. lister... 1958?
I though Jaguar too at first because of the shape and color, but the Jags had knock offs
I was originally thinking Jag too, but perhaps MG MGA?
I'm saying Lotus because a) BRG in colour and b) the post before was LotusF1 . Probably had AC looking at past Lotus liveries ;)
I thought Lotus as well...not sure what model, though.
Not a Lotus, Not a MG....
Hmm AC ace?
Austin Healey 100-6 ?
It should be a Ginetta, probably a G4.
No, sorry, not a Ginetta or a Healey! The clue is in the wheels...
ooops should have been Aston Martin
Cooper or BristolNot Anon. George Booth
im going to guess the racing green is a trick, and the car isnt british.1952 glasspar g2... ?
That wheel is definitely British. I'll narrow down my previous guess; it's a 1955 Bristol 450.If I recall properly, the Bristol works team had a specially designed power wrench that could simultaneously unfasten/refasten all six bolts securing the rim to the spyder. And with the correct torque!George Booth again. Apologies for not having a proper signature!
Okay I checked the library. I knew it was a '50 "special", but the name eluded me. I was close with my Bristol guess.It's a Keift-Bristol.George Booth again.
keift briston it is..http://www.motorsnaps.com/v/Cars+K/Kieft/Kieft_Bristol.jpg.html
not an Aston, not a Bristol. This car is so rare I don't think anyone can guess! Bwahahahah!
Sorry for the translation, I not very comfortable in discussing mecanics in english, I'm french.There is something strange inside the wheel. 2 devices (1 on the right, 1 on the left) which seem to be the brake pads, ok. But what surprises me is the disc. Doesn't look normal...
It is like the brake disc is part of the wheel rim.
Wild guess: Scarab?
I wanted to say Jaguar XKSS, but then I remembered how the wheel archs cover half the rim on an XKSS.
HA, I can't believe I finally have you Axis readers stumped (well Justin has anyway)... More hints: It is a british car, and it had a twin cam engine...only 3 were made...
AC, was it the F1 car England tried to enter but failed miserably at?
H.R.G. 1500 Twin Cam

Yep, HRG 1500.http://forsale.classicandperformancecar.com/detail.aspx?ad=10532&d=150
haha. the hint made it too easy. Typing "twin cam, british, 1 of 3" into google brings it up as the 4th entry :P
Anon delivers as usual. Thanks 4chan.
I consider you stumped but Marmot wins :) For Sale in Vegas
