you're right dada, I thought tough ones are easy to find out, easy ones definitely tickle the brain veins.

ID 719: Its an RHD so cant be an american or australian and seems like a mid/rear engined one. This does not seem to be a production model , seems like a limited edition one.

@ AyAn!: You knew what you were doing when you asked me to hold back. It's actually more fun to watch people come up with crazy theories.

Never give out the exact number of units manufactured if you want the guesser to put some effort into the identification (ie search) process. I made that mistake once and got taken advantage of (so to speak). Since that time I've been sticking to the 'approximately / fewer than' formula.

EDIT: I don't mean to sound patronizing, by the way. This is just a friendly tip.

You guys are sure having fun arent you. It was my bad on Australia not being a RHD. So guess will start googling now for 1980's-90's cars from australia . Damn this one is tough and google isnt helpin much out here, not even with the number of units manufactured. I have stopped all my work since last 2 hours and just busy googling.

Sorry to rain on your little parade, ladies. ID 719 is the Australian Purvis Eureka.

Many years ago, Auto India had carried an article on obscure sports cars of the world. This car had been featured there, and somehow, from the 1/2 page write-up, the term "fibreglass supercar" had stuck on to the mind.

When I saw the photo, I racked my brains out to remember something more than fibreglass supercar. This was until you guys started hollering about it being Australian or not Australian!

So here's a word of advice. STOP GIVING HINTS UNTIL ASKED FOR.

EDIT- Sorry Aniket didnt see the post but then i repeat my above concern.....isnt this a Kit Car and thus quantifiable under the rules of this thread?

Edit-II Ya no hints, just checked under 683 cars produced and presto, the name comes up on google search.

Well there were too many hints. I searched for "Australian fibreglass coupe" .

Well, the tip about not giving away the exact number of units was a general piece of advice directed at everyone. In any case, I'm somewhat surprised that nobody mentioned the British Nova kit car on which the Eureka was based. Even if you've never heard of the Purvis it's easy to track it down on the strength of the Nova connection.

Absolutely right Aniket Da and V16!
This is an Aussie Purvis Eureka.One weird thing about this car is it had no doors!Entrance to this car had to be made though a electrically operated canopy which had to be raised!!
