I recently came into possession of this rig (my first) and have yet to retrieve it. I've inquired in a couple of places on the interweb, and no one seems to have seen this "coach" version of an EML before. Anyone here have any ideas?

The bottom looks like a Tour-T, but never saw one with a hard top. Maybe its a one off / custom job.

For those interested;

Got the rig home late Friday evening. (3700 mi. round trip)
Turns out to in fact be an EML that was once an open car. DocMike called it right, a Tour-T. The English gentleman who gave it to me retired as a mechanical engineer for Rolls-Royce. He Split the car in two front to back, and added 4" of width then made the hardtop, door ect. The door is amazing in real life! It shuts just like a Rolls if you can imagine that! lol and all the body lines line up perfectly.

The bike has a medallion on it from BMW for 200,000 miles. It is now showing 271,000 and he told me the one caveat to taking possession of it was that I had to put enough miles on it to receive the 300,000 medallion from BMW!!

All that has been done to it is a valve job at about 250,000. He says he changed the oil every 5k and it never used a drop in between.
