I recall Henry Catchpole said he expected a final spec car in about a month's time. It's been over a month since we saw all the VP car videos

I’m expecting a Top Gear review soon. They mentioned in the VP review they’d be testing a production car “next month”, which likely means publication in the May magazine and online around the same time.

The 'May' magazine is already out... so the June mag I would guess - due later April/early May publication date.

I'm at the factory tomorrow afternoon for the tour. Now where did I put my camera glasses.

Do it. Seriously.

Pics not allowed? Come on.. They have at least $2500 from most of us and $5k from a lot of us.. All we want are the photos we were told "are coming soon" every week since October. 😡

Im trying to be positive, but with all the feedback on what is currently being produced on the Hethel production line, I find it hard to believe Top Gear and the like (with their own production lead times) will actually have a TRUE production vehicle for test without compromise.

They’re getting there. This might be old news but on factory visit yesterday I saw cars labelled PP (Production Prototype), the 3rd and final prototype phase (following Validation and Tools & Testing prototypes ).

Words can’t really describe the feeling of seeing all the colours and so many Emiras all at once in one place, it’s quite overwhelming! They all look stunning.

Back to the OP question - I think this month or next latest is entirely likely.

Quick pic from when we left. Interesting roof adornments!

I think you may just have spotted one of the new blue colours! (See door jam)
