From the first full year of BB512 production, #21149 is one of just one hundred and one, right-hand drive examples delivered new to the UK market. Records suggest as few as eleven, RHD 512BB's were specified in this distinctive colour combination.

Circa £10k was spent by the vendor, in preparing the car for the 1994 FOCGB National Concours, at Cottesbrooke Hall Northampton. This involved him working on the car, in his free time at Rardley Motors - including an engine-out detailing of the bay area and repainting the lower half of the car, and front valance. #21149 achieved a second place in Class F.
