Would appear to be an early one?

Hmm, there were pre-facelift V8's but unless PWC sold them as part of the stock, none of the prototypes were sold as the interior finish was never completed on them (and barely finished on many of the sold ones).

If it is a prototype, it would be interesting to find out how it escaped longbridge

And exactly how it differs from a production model if at all . . .
It's a K Series . . . . keep topping it up . . . . it'll be fine . . . . . .

From I have read "elsewhere", it would seem expensive? Although from what I see it's a good price for a V8?

The V8's do hold a premium, mainly for their rarity, if (and I mean if) this is s genuine prototype it would be cheap for a collector.

However as this is road registered its more likely it's a press car

And as a result difficult to price perhaps? With such rarity owners could ask almost what they want, and if a purchaser wants it enough they will pay.

True, start high and work down to what the market will pay, after all if you start low you stay low
