Anyone familiar with this Coupe at F40 Motorsports?

Greg, agreed it does look very nice! That's Wayne Carini's place, could be his personal car is he told me he was working on a coupe a couple of years ago.

Only thing that does not look right is the vin plate - should be etched, not stamped in that font...

I don’ t think it is Wayne’s personal car. He told me that he had purchased a coupe from California which had a non Lotus motor, and that he had a crashed coupe. His intention was to make one from two. This does not match the the profile of the car in his ad.

Nice looking car, though.
