Inspired by the lightweight MGC GT fitted with a 2 litre MGB engine that was raced in the Targia Florio by Paddy Hopkirk and finished ninth overall in the unlimited prototype class. This car has been built regardless of cost with bills exceeding £25,000. Built on an original shell, it has been painstakingly restored to obtain excellent lines and panel fit. Finished in Iris blue with a distinctive yellow marker valance. The engine is an unleaded 2 litre MGB engine with gas flowed and ported head, fast road camshaft and a balanced & lightened flywheel (with just 600 miles under its belt). To keep everything where it should be, uprated suspension has been fitted with negative camber wishbones and uprated shocks. Interested parties should note that all components are either new or reconditioned.
