Probably based on the Silver prototype.
Looking very much as the silver car except for the color, seats and other minor details. Makes it's "debut" in Cannes May, 1997






Here seen outside the Olofström facility..

.. and here at a gas station

This car is used for PR and some press, but I don't know much about this car.. focus was probably on coming further with the project.. after this car there was some silence because of the new Margretetorp facility was planed and set up for the future.

Later "Purple" or Brown prototype..

This car had a "twin".. An early design study made together with Sven-Harry Åkesson after a 1:10 scale model. This one is probably made before 1996 (I think it was used as an mold to create parts for the first prototype?)
Seen 1:05 into this clip:

Some other pictures, notice the wheels!


I think the base of this one was later used to create the Blue (first red) design study.
