Wow. That is great news. Where did you find them?
From what I understood they'd gone to someone who planned to put the Biota on the market as a golf cart.

Is your early car the aluminium bodied prototype? I have a colour picture of that car (it was lime green) on the show stand at Olympia that you might find interesting.

The story, along with some pictures, is in this months CKC.

Nice one John. I always liked the Biota.

Putting 2 and 2 together, I guess the Biota on display at Detling was one of those?

i found the moulds in Mansfield the guy had owned them for over  30 years and they where just lying in his garden
No 1 is a fibreglass car, the aluminium car is in Doncaster awaing restoration and i belive it was lime green.
i would certinly be interested in seeing any Biota pics

Feel free to drop me a lione at jeroen@jeroenbooij.com and I will send you the picture. I have many other Biota pics, including some that were taken in the factory when they were built.
