Default Very interesting facts about the Seville & Jerez launches


Many thanks to you Reebs for this new investigation and interview with Peter Morgan about the R40 launch in Seville and Jerez in early 1999. Many nice facts and photos from the two events. For me as the owner of former S909XDA, this is worth a lot to me. S909XDA will then be one of the four Arden Green 2.5 V6 auto Connoisseur in Seville, mentioned in your article here.
Enclosed here are two photos of the car still in U.K. in 2007, just before shipping to Sweden. Also a photo showing my Seville Press Launch Pewter Model from that event. No.3 of 700. I bought this example from Denis Chick, former Director of Product Communications at Rover Group. He was kind enough to sell his example to me.

Kind Regards! // Christian Carlsson Sweden

Superb archival material, Paul!

Many thanks for collating such a brilliant resource - the basis for a book?

All the best, Nicholas/Zircon
