Here is a clip by the northern author/broadcaster driving his 827 Vitesse.

Lovely bit of archive that - thanks.

Funny how Parky mentions that he loves the climate control with a close up of a full ATC panel (10:36) yet his car seems to have only the earlier "manual" type aircon. Perhaps he got a free upgrade for his efforts...

Really nice to watch, though. Did bits of him driving around on the motorway remind anyone else of the opening or maybe closing credits of Executive Stress (later series') with Peter Bowles and Penelope Keith (seem to remember that was an E reg fastback, no less!)
