nice pics, the road through those cliff faces is nice
but this is the same single car they have been showing for ages,  does it even run?
I would be a lot happier if I saw a few different ones running around with camo and test gear in ice and the desert etc.

As far asa I know they just towed this shell to those spots for some happy snaps

Last I read they were planning on designing an engine for it now too

AFAIK there is as you say this shell that gets dragged around for Promos, photos, etc. There is one that has the Toyota engine in it but not sure if it is drivable or not.

The new engine that is being developed will be tested in a mule(s) until ready to go in the new body. One of the mules is an older shaped Esprit.

Most likely won’t see any of the new bodied cars getting around until late next year.
