    I find it very interesting that nobody has questioned the white lines that runs over the righthand side of the car. My own car has it over the lefthand side mainly to correspond with models and pictures.

    I think I know why or shall I say I have my own version and that is that the lines "should" go over the drivers side so that he can orientate himself with the "car to road alignment" when running sideways in competition. Maybe a little like the yellow marks on sport steering wheels nowadays.

    You mean it's not for lining up slow pedestrians?

    I heard an interpretation that the lines were put on the side the driver sat on, to aid rescue workers assist the driver out of an overturned R8G by indicating which side he will be on. True or not, unsure.

    Therefore, in a RHD world they would be on the correct side.

    I like the car but your hub caps are missing. By choice or cannot find good ones?

    Ye gods! Those driving lights look like they've had too much red (or, perhaps, blue) cordial.

    cheers! Peter

    I posted this a couple of weeks back in Renault Eye Candy. Bit small but perhaps someone with better skills than me can enhance it, Cheers Brian

    I'd say Peter Jansen left it behind, after entertaining the young lady and doing research on his future rally car.

    I presume shes supposed to be santas little helper , and how douse the 4 stud alloy wheel fit into the equation ,the hat has me a little confused as well ,think what they are implying is that these modifications will blow your mind ,and on closer inspection that large steering wheel seems to be similar diameter to the spoked road wheel ,b like driveing a bus, pugs

    That's right. Note the tied bow on top of the hat with the two earflaps on the side.

    your eyesight's better than mine with that blurry photo Simon. I can see something on top, but no earflaps.
    I'll go with your interpretation in lieu of further evidence.
