Explanation:
potrebbe essere 'clone' invece di 'done'? Forse si riferisce al fenomeno di 'clonare' le macchine, crimine molto diffuso in Inghilterra (cioè se compri da un privato potresti ritrovarti con un'auto rubata con la targa falsa, copiata da un'altra macchina). Te lo chiedo perchè clone e ringer significano entrambi 'copia esatta'.
