By looking at the videos and looking at the upload date...

I'd say that might have been arrocuda's car...

Nope.... it's not my car, although it is a similar colour. I notice that the car has an Alpine boot lid and dash. Also has no sill covers, (Alpinesque). Only thing that says Rapier to me is the C pillar trim. Having said all that it's missing the tombstone seats you would expect to find in an Alpine.

Only has a single downpipe from the engine so it's not a V8.... nice stainless exhaust though! One other thing I noticed is that the shift stick doesn't look standard Rapier or Alpine.

Building the 'Mark II' fastback Rapier ('Arrocuda').

Gave it a watch on my old lappy - couldn't see all the spots arrocuda made, but I did see there was a Rapier Owners Club key fob! Also don't forget that the high-back seats were dropped from the Alpine from c. late 71/ early 72 onward as Chrysler decided people did not like them and replaced them with Rapier ones from then on. Video a good find in the first place andyb Cheers. G.
