Is this Car Known?

Post by First-Car as Marina » Wed Jan 03, 2018 1:45 pm

So I was watching an oldish episode of Doctor Who (2013?) the other day and saw a familiar looking car. Just wondered if anyone knew of it? I assume the BBC own it and going by the MOT history it only goes to the MOT station and back :think:.

Yes I believe it belongs to a company who supplies cars for filming, it has appeared in quite a few programmes. It used to be a Teal Blue car with an early front valance used in historic rallying before it became a later Harvest Gold car....
