Just saw his daughter had posted this, I was sure this thing would've been mentioned here already but couldn't find it so I'm posting this now.

There was a RR powered by a Merlin here in the 80's RR took the owner to court for mis-use of the label or some thing like that last time I heard it had totally burned out due to a electrical fault, could this be the car?

Ian: The first Beast was a red fastback (looked similar to an early capri after the long nose) and it did indeed have a RR grill and it did burn out completely so that is it. RR found out by sportscar owners calling to see what new model it was that had just smoked then on the freeway :D

Roost: Not sure but she sounds friendly and seems to be as interested in the car as her dad, she even posted his email and told people in the WW2-forum that her dad was still friendly and happy to talk about the car.

Btw, I actually think I heard someone speaking danish when the car was shown in the later part of the video with the hood up, but then again from what I've heard then a lot of danes live in Spain either part or full-time. Little Denmark anyone? :D
