johnh875 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
It has been a while since I checked in here, and there have been some interesting discussions. The Giocattolo was a development of that mid-engined V6 Sprint you saw Gerard, initially Paul Halstead wanted to build that car but Alfa Romeo would not come to the party to supply engines, so he went for a Holden V8 instead.

The Nagari could have been called the Mk8 Bolwell, although there were only 5 models before it - they started with MkIV on the basis that people were less likely to buy a Mk1! At least one of the 4 Bolwell brothers worked at Lotus for a while in the 1960s. An example of each Bolwell model was on display at PI, and someone did say to me they are working on a new car too.

Thanks for the info John! Bolwell to make a new model then? In case of lack of inspiration they could produce again the Nagari as was or with minor changes. Remember the Pantera story?
