Old English White perhaps? Sort of a putty colour so might even be called that!

Found it, it was a colour available on the Sport 220 of the same year. It follows the same naming convention of Exige Signature Orange, in that it's officially ''Signature Grey' but sometimes gets referred to as 'Elise Grey' or Elise Signature grey'

Hi Steve @Glynnsport, Good to hear from you again and i'm glad you're still enjoying your Cup. Thanks for the extra info on the background and build plaque. That should mean mine is the 80th car, with Stubox's silver car being the 1st of 2016 (potentially last too).

Interestingly, I had another dealership (not B&C) offer me your car whilst it was still awaiting collection from the Factory, but I wasn't happy with the trade-in offer on my V6S. I still have photos in my inbox of the car with its shipping protection (let me know if you want copies). Good thing it worked out that way, as B&C must have purchased it into their stock to eventually find it's way into your garage, and in the meantime I drooled over the interior spec in person at the Festival and subsequently cut a deal on my own unique Cup build. Happy days!

P.S, I'm booked onto the Hethel day with LoT in April, if you can make it. Oh and my intel can partially be accredited to the fact your business card lived on my desk for well over 18months after we met :lol:

Ha, ha...loving that my business card is still sat on your desk 18 months+ later ?.

I was aware that another Retailer was involved before B&C but I gather B&C snapped it up from under them before they paid for it. As you say, worked out well for both of us ? Would love copies of the pics you took please. 

Interesting then, from what you now know, it may be only 81 road versions were built then or certainly not many more than that.

Arun, sorry I missed your P.S. in my previous post.  Is it the Hethel day on 7th April? If so, unfortunately I can't make that as I'm already instructing in the McLaren at Thruxton. Let me know what other plans you have during the year. Would be good to catch up again. Cheers.

Just added car 123,

We have 23 cars accounted for, not bad going. Interesting that the total is around 80 road V6 Cups, the original plan was for 50 a year but that included race cars, so sounds about right.

Thank's Jonny ... interesting to know that we have more or less a quantity of cars built ... 80 pieces ... this will certainly give a real "value" to a car trought and built for racing but also for road use.

Hi Trevor

The Caterham in front is an R400. I've track driven R400s many times and they are a match for almost anything on this kind of twisty circuit. So pleased the V6 Cup could keep up. I should confess that I was on Avon ZZRs which are terrific on the Cup car.

Hi Imran

Cadwell is 2.19 miles long but is a testing circuit with loads of changes in height. Set in beautiful countryside in a natural bowl, on a sunny day it is a joy. You should definitely try it.

@Black Knight you've just made me put Cadwell Park on my priority list for 2018. Never done the circuit and looks a very interesting challenge!

The mountain is interesting, can get air in some machines, and hairpin has zero run off, just a tyre wall.

I stumbled across  V6 Cup #59 during a recent window shopping session online. Previously a German registered road car, converted by Van der Kooi in the Netherlands with new clams and CupR aerokit, Komo EX460 kit and Kobra brake kit, 3-way Nitrons, rollcage and most notably, a KAPS sequential transmission.

This one should be a weapon as the Youtube vid highlights..though its history does make me wonder if it was perhaps a resurrection of the white German Cup that ended up on its roof on circuit (merely speculation sorry)
