Just wondering what ever happened to this.   Does anyone know where it is now if it wasnt rapped round a lampost

Cheers

I'm sure it was J210 ODU, but that number isn't recognised on the DVLA website...  :-\

Had a private plate on it at one point.

I remember seeing this at a meet in Cardiff when (iirc) Adrian Ford owned it. That would've been ten years ago or thereabouts.

I'm sure it was the most powerful G40 about for a while, with around 170bhp.

The answer is in here:

Shame I can't log in. Keeps saying I need a public profile, which I've created, and I still can't get in.

Did you approve me?

Only pics I can find on there are of it on the same plate as above. But I assume as MyCarCheck says it's on a green G40, that it's now dead:

The vehicle details for J4 OVW are:
Date of Liability   01 04 2007
Date of First Registration   29 08 1991
Year of Manufacture   1991
Cylinder Capacity (cc)   1272cc
CO2 Emissions   Not Available
Fuel Type   PETROL
Export Marker   Y
Vehicle Status   Unlicensed
Vehicle Colour   GREEN
Vehicle Type Approval   Not Available

Date of liability here meaning the date the tax ran out. It's not SORN (as it says unlicensed) and if the plate had been taken off the car it would've thrown up a blank. If I put the reg in for the car my engine came out of it gives the same information as above.

My guess is it was broken for spares between April 2006 and April 2007.

sadly it would seem so.  that's how I understand it when the tax thing says unlicensed for so long.  Either it's written off or someone has a hell of a lot of unpaid tax fines building up on their doormat!

Ah right, that makes sense. Must've been exported that year then and slipped off the DVLA radar.

Sweet

I should imagine a G40's a good weapon on your roads?!  ;D

Good to hear they are living on strong, showing the new breeds another way to be quick!
