What kind of car is in the Fructis advert?

It's bugging the hell out of me. There are elements of 80's Aston there, but I swear it's not one. Then maybe American muscle car, but I don't think it's one of them either. There's some Jensen in the headlights, but that's a red herring too I think.

hmmmm, interesting one. I immediately thought Aston too but I don't think it is. I'm tempted to say it's american but it seems somehow too elegant, too European.

Nothing. I saw the car on the TV, so I looked on visit4info, because they have videos of all UK adverts

Re: What kind of car is in the Fructis advert?

I love those cars too.

There's a saying about them that goes along the lines of; it's a £1000 car with an £8000 engine.

Comes under the same category as the Alfa Montreal and Citroen SM in my opinion. All superb cars but with very exotic (i.e. expensive) engines. But then there's another saying that goes; you can't take it with you.

In other words, a great way to go bankrupt...

Incidentally, re. the ones in The Italian Job. They were 2 litre cars, later ones were fitted with a 2.4 after the capacity was increased in the Ferrari Dino 206 as it then became the 246. So there you go! (And I should know).

OK, then, on a related note, what's the car Stephen Fry gets to drive in "Kingdom"?


My first thought was Facel, but can't find it. It's driving me nuts!

Re: What kind of car is in the Fructis advert?

There's something a bit 'not quite right' about Alvises.

I always think of them being owned by country vicars. Not nice vicars though; the type that enjoy the company of choirboys a bit too much.
