BW used to have 2 of them and sold one to Ken Weger (the blue car) several years ago.
That sits in Ken's collection north-west of Chicago and perhaps 70 miles south of where the restored one that sold now resides.
So TWO of them in the USA within a short drive of each other.  I seem to recall seeing 2 others over the years, at least one in France.

The buyer of the Reyonnah at the auction has already driven it once and intends to drive it a bit more after he finishes with his new garage.
He says it is quite nice to drive.  So that is the only review I can find at the moment.

My pal Pierrick  still has the green and cream one in France as far as I know.. Good that at least one still resides in its country of origin. The books say they had either an Ydral 175 or AMC 250 engine. Also that there was a plexiglass dome hinged canopy model offered but that may never had been made. I have never seen one pictured.  I think there great!
