    I see from the name on the nose of the car what it is , but do not believe i have ever seen one before. The last two pictures look like Graham Hill in the diver's seat.

    It is the two versions of the Rover BRM gas turbine racer. It was out at about the same time as Chrysler's Turbine. It raced at Le Mans in 1963 with Graham Hill /Richie Ginther driving as an Experimental Class and in'64 with the new coupe body it was entered but did not start. It raced in '65 as a Prototype with Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart as the drivers,but failed to finish.
