Hi

Just catching up on an old Classic Cars mag and came across this ‘Beta’.

Isn't 'Beta' a fairly common term now for a prototype or an early iteration of something in a development stage, particularly in the software industry?

Hi Neil

You are correct, often on software for pre release where it is suitable for folk to play with and find any serious last minute bugs before release.

The thing that interested me here is that this was not a pre release car, but a specially built version and just called Beta from what I have read on it.
