Guys,
will get the pics today or tomorrow (If it is parked on the road. It is either their qualis or the Fiat in the garage).
I saw it yesterday but it was very dirty.
Manson you are right about the location. (some building between PDP and Silver Arch).
SS, the Porsche was BLUE and he always lived in Delhi,
Nitroxx, it does not belong to a relative or friend (or else it will not be in such bad condition).

Guys,
Heres another Fiat with a two door. Ive got a Fiat Coupe a 72 sports with a 1600cc 100 BHP Twin cam belt driven engine which has all original parts in working condition and is under restoration. This engine is very familiar and a very successful one used in all races & designed by ex-Ferrari engineer Aurelio Lampredi. Will post you pictures and details pretty soon. My other cars are Fiat Siena TD60 & Fiat Palio GTX.

Its got a pretty decent report here... though it does not seem at all Bangle-y... admitted that the BMW is a totally different design requirement, but if its the same designer, there are always some tell-tale marks that are common to each car.
Example: Pininfarina/Ferrari : All their cars have 3 distinct sections when the profile is viewed. The front box, which houses the front wheels, the doors, which are ALWAYS pushed in, and the rear, which again, juts out of the main frame, making a bold statement, unlike so many other cars which have smooth lines making the whole body in one surface. Just look at the F40, the F50 and the F60(Enzo) and you wqill realise this design cue is common only to Ferraris.

Somehow, I think that that this couldn't have been Bangle alone...

I remeber seeing the car - it was being sold by a guy called Ryan - he had an X/19 which I looked at. This coupe was also sitting there. If I am right, it was a left hand drive car converted to right hand drive - the wipers were still set up for left hand drive- windscreen was badly scratched. Unfortunately the X1/9 went before I could consider bidding for it
