Just a quickie, how many P57 ('62) cars were built?

Were some of them modified from '61 cars?

Try this page:

The British Racing Motors information centre

So, there says there were three pure P57 and five P578. I assume that all P57 become P578 later

Three P57s - correct - five P578 numbers but the truth of how many cars were built is FAR more complicated....

Indeed...

Cine cameras have that effect.
