Saw this on the M6 early evening Thursday. Without looking on the Internet (I had to in the end) but does anyone know what this is? Clue #1: As far as I know it is unique; #2 It was built in 2010; #3 and it cost £750,000...

It WAS a V6.

 

However, I've been doing some more research and I'm getting confused now - not helped by two different spellings of its name!

OK.... I've been doing some research and its now confession time (prompted by a close relative doing a reg. lookup)...

 

I've c*cked this up good and proper. On the motorway I looked up the name Nemisis and found a Wikipedia entry for an electric car called Nemesis which was based on the Lotus Exige, converted in 2010. This was further linked to a YouTube clip that had both Nemesis and Nemisis in the title. My mistake was to jump to the conclusion that Wiki contained a spelling error.

 

Today I first looked up the Lotus Exige to match the body shape and it became clear this was not that car. So I did the Reg. lookup and it came back as a Lamborghini Aventador. It was then I looked up "Lamorghini Nemisis" and a model with the full name: Lamborghini Nemisis Aventador was revealed.

 

So I must apologise for leading you all up the garden path. But I did learn something about the electric Lotus - quite an interesting read at: https://en.wikipedia...ki/Nemesis_(car).

 

Special apologies to those of you who guessed Lambo straight away!

Turns out my confusion is further reinforced:

 

FAS 774 = 1988 White Lotus Esprit Turbo (SORN)

FAS 77A = 2014 Lamborghini Huracan (Orange!!!)

 

This is fun innit!

So is it an Aventador or a Huracan? Digging further the Nemisis name has been used on both of them and also on the Gallardo...

 

(Tomorrow's class lesson will be on...)

I`d say it was a Huracan, look at Google images and it`s bang on, the only reason I didn`t chip in earlier was because you said it wasn`t a Lambo  :lol:

I'm 100% that it's a Huracan. In fact it looks like a Performante edition but via an aftermarket livery because the true Performante has just two exhaust tips higher up and more central (as below)
