Yeah, that was the test mule.

It had an Anni interior, and recaro seats, flared wheel arches (about an inch wider), longer front bumper (final production car's is squarer and flatter)

Can't remember who made the exhaust pipe on it (it certainly wasn't sebring, like production R32's were)

It had SuperTurismo OZ wheels

This particular R32 was the one they pounded around the Nurburgring to fine tune the chassis set up, so it's basically one of the Daddies!

Wow, really like the blended skirts and flared arches on that! They should have kept that design IMO.

Accountants are to blame for most things.......they can take the heat for this one not getting into the public domain!

It might have made it but perhaps the price would have been greater than what the marketing people said customers were prepared to pay. I often blame the bean-counters for a lot of things but maybe it has more to do with the state of the market in general??
