I don't know if this is the case in question, but I remember that Lotus used a model in a state of undress at the press day of the British Motor Show when (I think) the S2 Elite was launched. The organisers promptly told the company that 'nudes' were not permitted even on Press Day. Chapman, as ingenious as ever when faced with rules, decided to add a glove!

Brian,

Assume your wife was out when you took that picture !

Oh, I see, she IS your wife. My apologies.

So how on earth do you find time to drive all those cars ........?
