Just came across this pic I took of the AU prototype or whatever it was called that I took for a spin in a few years back.

There was a pretty funny sticker inside that threatened dire consequences if it was driven in public.

Grill was from the Futura, wheels look like they never made it to production, but I preferred them to the final product...

Just thought I'd post it if anyones interested, now that its definitely not a secret anymore. :CraZ:

Sorry if the image was distorted for some peoples views, i tried to clip the image size down so it would be easier to view however I was unsuccesful so I put it back to the way it originally was.

Just about every Falcon prototype photo I have seen seems to have the same background, the white wall with the row of trees in front. If you look at the AU prototype photos wheels published when it was launched you will noticed it was also taken at the same spot.

Anyone own a helicopter and a good zoom lens?
