The grille on this non-US 710/Violet intrigues me. Is it unique to the SSS model, which this car appears to be?

I'm more intrigued by the fact that the SSS badge is on the hood... :P

And I believe that is the SSS grill.

IIRC the standard grill looks like this:

I've never seen a 160J SSS over here that hasn't had the badge on the bonnet (that shot's from NZ btw).

damn, I fully expected the question to be about the rotary turbo Cosmo next to the Violet/160J. :lol:

Had an answer ready to go and everything!

Check out the subtle side window differences, and the Violet has a crease line that goes from the grille down by the rocker. :tu:
