Hi all,
After 7 wonderful years with a LWB GU 4.8 auto (what a car!) I have taken courage and “upgraded” onto a manual, GQ this time, 4.2 carby. Gold/ red velours with cool box and 3rd row, Here a few photos.
Best regards

Thank you all! Yes, it’s the most luxuriously finished Y60 I ever come across. It will be hard to take off-toad but eventually I know I will! 😁

Welcome to the forum Zibello, very nice GQ.

That red velour interior is magnificent, well and truly out of fashion by GQ days I believe, but I love it.

You are right, the new GQ is only a 1993 but everything seems early seventies, the colours, the finishing, the driving… The previous GU I had didn’t have that feeling. I guess this is the charm of this GQ, a sort of time machine

Looks like a very neat blank canvas you have there. The first scratch is always the hardest. But they were built to be used
