That's a scan I did out of the Neko Publishing book; the front of the car is near the spine and I couldn't get it flat enough to come out properly!

Man, those teardrop lights look good on the GT; better than the hex-lights in my opinion.

Anyone keen to make a replica?!??!

It's possible this is a prototype of the PR80 Bellett Coupe; they just ran a 1500 OHV motor... they were basically a Bellett sedan coupe! They were dropped well before the end of the PR90 run.

Was 8 built. All handmade.
I know of a 91 that's getting the teardrop treatment as we speak, so a replica of sorts is being done.
