I've been reading Kit-car magazine this afternoon and come accross this little beast.

Powered by a familiar choice of mid-mounted K-Series, T16 or KV6 engines, or an Audi TT engine, this car weighs a mere 850kg for the road going version of 750kg for the track!

The interior shares many parts with the Rover 200 / MG ZR series.

The below is quoted from their website :


The Shelsley T2 is a sportscar developed from the ground up, using years of top level competition experience, to provide ultra-safe handling and high performance, yet give the sort of road comfort levels many sportscars only dream about.

Originally this car was created for the 'Fast, but Getting Slower' hill climb driver, who demanded not only precise and sharp performance, but also a practical everyday all-weather car, that would suit Road or Track!

Quality of finish is absolutely superb, the body panels are manufactured in hi-grade composite with no flash lines and unlike many specialist handbuilt sportscars, the T2 is built with production car values. Featuring individual body panels all round, which can quickly and easily be fitted or replaced with just a few bolts, - with no major work involved!

'Enjoying the open road in this stunningly quick dream machine, with its massive rear grip allowing safe and precise handling, gives you the confidence to enjoy this driving experience to the full.'

Body colour is in the GRP gel coat and is available in an outstanding choice of 250 colours!

The T2's supple ride produces natural safe understeer when pushed hard. Reaching 0-60 in approximately 4secs and an amazing 50-100mph roll on in fifth gear. This is true driving flexibility - and the car in standard trim will do 150mph.

'Many years of refinement in top level competition, lead to the development of the T2, whose general feel is very safe without any drama when driven fast or slow.' - Steve Hole.

Safety - has been kept to the fore at all stages of the design. Primary and secondary safety features include - excellent visibility, outstanding handling and braking, SIP, and Intelligent crumple zones to protect the occupants.

Comfort - no compromises here either. The superb dashboard equipment and heater are as used in the Rover 200/25, the lack of wind noise and buffeting allows normal conversation even at very high speeds and the long travel suspension produces a wonderfully supple controlled ride.

For those with specific needs - Factory Built and Full Race 'Super Light' options are also available.

A true Supercar yet the kit is Only £7,855 (ex VAT)

I like one of these for a play toy. Especially with a sweet KV6 inside it.
