IN THE JANUARY ISSUE
TWO TIGERS TESTED
In the January 2005 issue of WHICH KIT CAR? Adam Wilkins gets an
exclusive first drive of the Tiger Cat XL. While it’s pretty
much dynamically the same as the existing Cat, it now offers greater
cockpit space thanks to a widened body and chassis. Yet it has lost
none of the car’s original lines. While at Tiger’s HQ,
he also got the chance to test the latest R6S, the lightweight model
fitted with a Ford Zetec engine and sequential gearbox.
Lamborghini Countach replica made a big impact in the 1980s with
many kit car firms offering copies of the contemporary supercar
king. Now that the original has become a classic in its own right,
the replica scene has experienced a resurgence of interest. Peter
Filby meets the UK’s leading specialist to freeze-frame today’s
Countach replica scene.
JBA Engineering has been one of the kit car industry’s main
companies since it was established in 1982. In all that time, the
firm has remained in the same hands and the primary model, the Falcon
tourer, has been a key player in the market. But since the summer
of 2004, new man Tim Banwell has been in charge. Ian Stent met him
to find out his plans for the future. To find out if the Falcon
is in safe hands, check out the latest issue.
JBA UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP
This month’s reader’s car is something of a step back
in time. The Siva Edwardian is one of the quirkier offering from
the past and, today, it’s a rare sight. Rarer still to find
one as outstanding as the example pictured here.
