Hi Chris,
The car is interesting indeed.  I thought all Series 1 VDP (1981) had 
leather upholstery.  I have a set of seats like those pictured and am 
certain that they came from a Series 1 3500SE (1981).  This is the first 
LHD 1981 I have ever seen.  BL sent a test fleet of '81's to the US and 
my seats came out of one of those.  Ted Schumacker wound up with all of 
them under a contract that said they all had to be destroyed.  There 
can't have been too many LHD '81 VDP, but if I had to guess, I'd say the 
car was a modified SE.  I don't think the front spoiler was factory 
installed either.
