The West Coast Sales Manager of Rootes American Motors Inc., Ian Garrad, realized that the Sunbeam Alpine's image was that of a touring car rather than a sports car, and he set about changing its image using the Shelby Cobra as a guide. Sunbeam asked Carroll Shelby to produce one functional prototype. Shelby's prototype was fabricated by Shelby employee George Boskoff and sent to England for evaluation. The Tiger was born. After doing extensive engineering studies, Rootes Group subcontracted development and production to Jensen, located in West Bromwich. Production of the Tiger reached 7,085 cars. The Shelby prototype has survived, along with a number of other historically significant Tigers including Lister Le Mans racers.
