I know it's Xmas, but if you're going to send an email out about the putting 0002 in a museum then you could have least got the right number of digits in its nomenclature* and used a photo of the correct vehicle... 🙈🙊🙉

* OK debatable as both two and three leading zeros were used.

Interesting as I thought all prototypes had to be destroyed. Does this mean the other prototypes might be retained for display or sale?

I think I saw the rules allowed prototypes also to be placed in official museums.

A few photos of 0002/002:

There is no law that say that they have to be destroyed. It is just very hard to register them for road use.

I think it has to do with tax credits, more specifically Research and Development (R&D) tax relief that can be applied to Corporation Tax.

In UK, this is currently 13% of qualifying expenditure, set to raise to 20% next year.

Companies are not be able to claim relief for the cost of things that can be resold or have a lasting value to the business beyond the duration of the project. Hence the need to scrap.
