They are the "Poor man's Cobra" since Shelby's team developed them. It's a blast to drive, especially when the kid with the Honda and coffee can muffler can't figure out why the old, fat, bald guy in the british 4 banger just smoked him.

Cool cars and a hoot to drive unless you're on the gas to hard leaving a corner. Ask me how I know. Chuck

It is fun to drive. It was meant not to be quick, but to be competitive on a road track, but the V8, even a small one, does let it get out of it's own way. Big Grin I'm pretty sure all the panels are steel. It even has a full frame, although it's not box steel like you'd expect. It's two stamped halves welded together. I had wanted one since I was in high school, and when one came along for a good price in 2000, I wasn't strong enough to walk away.

Every time I see a sunbeam tiger, the theme from GET SMART runs through my head!

Great car and wish I had one as they are huge fun!
