Found some cool old adverts for the N600. Another car I haven't seen in a very long time.

There was a red S800 on one of the continual repeats of Bangers & Cash the other day, another rare car these days.

I've never driven one nor seem for couple of years, but I remember those had some rather peculiar gear lever operation.

Oh yes! That would be a nice car to drive!

Spent a cold winter's evening trying to get one to start but the cam belt had jumped so no joy.

Jonny Smith has videos of his S600 coupe being restored on his YouTube channel 'the late brake show' , worth a look if it's your sort of thing.

Such a cool car!  8) If you get to 10 min through Johnnys video, he talks about the chain driven rear end. Absolutely bonkers. I would say I'd love a go in one, but there is no way I would fit.  :D

Probably unlikely to appeal to those who complain that they can hear their engine.

;D I think anything from that era would fall into that category!

Not at 8000+RPM though!

Jay Leno has one

That Jay Leno video was cool, well worh a watch. Great production quality and the sound of that car driving by......awesome. Sounds like a mini F1 car.  8) Thanks for posting Bazzzzer.

Red line 9500 RPM, it's doing 8800 RPM at 70mph! Twin exhausts and everything. As Jay said "It's great to drive a slow car quickly" I would agree with that 100%
