The Parma was a VR, and they did a Faclon to go with. They made a one off run for Dawn Trading, around 94. If you could find a new in bag item these days you would be lucky, as you can imagine they went pretty quick.

I do know of one VR that survived, painted up in GTS-R yellow/black...

I found a shop claiming to have the VR in stock.... In Germany! but they won't ship outside the EU. Dammit, I was in Norway 2 weeks ago
