White Gen1 SEC Rego "GAP-W941" - where is it today?

This photo has always fascinated me of this mint white Gen1 coupe with the 80's model posing on the bonnet in her leopard skin bathers but also i have since worked out it was taken in front the famous "Berlin Victory Column" in the Street called "StraBe des" that leads into the large roundabout called "Großer Stern" that surrounds the statue

That is a busy street and has the bricked paved centre for pedestrian use and also cars park there.
It appears a professional shoot based on the model used in the pic and its appears the pic was taken in the 80's and it is Berlin so it would appear a German owned car or even one of the surrounding countries - perhaps someone recognizes the license plate.

Does anybody know anything about this coupe and this pic
Was it a promo shoot for the car or perhaps a famous German female model of the 80's?
It appears a Lorinser body Kit so perhaps a Lorinser photo shoot but then they would have swapped out the license plate on for the pic.
Perhaps a Mafia Boss and his wife out for Sunday drive
Thomas does it ring e bell with you perhaps?
