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.

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.
