You are probably referring to the Spanish Tauro V8 Spider or British Breckland Beira.

As far as I know, neither car made it into full production.  I know of three Solstices that were converted to V-8 status by Performance Autowerks of Chicago and then shipped to Tauro in Spain for the completion of the conversion.  I never heard much regarding the Beira, so won't comment.

:dunno:
