I still have a magazine featuring the Etna (Modern Motor, Australia circa 1984). I'll see if I can dig it out and post some scans.

Here's the magazine article from Modern Motor March 1985













I absolutly love that interior shot, especially the steering wheel. Interesting that the writer is adamant that this car is going into production (in 1988!) I wonder what went wrong?
