WVKCG - Members Cars
Here we have a kit that was built
by Bill Witham. It is a Tornado Raptor V8. The
kit was supplied by Tornado Sports Cars in Kidderminster
I can tell you it was a nightmare
to build, but having said that it went through the SVA on the second attempt
having failed on just one or two Ďsharpí edges and a little electrical
problem that developed half way through the test.
It has a standard 3.5 Rover engine, with a Weber carb and Mallory ignition
and it has the standard Rover 5 speed manual gearbox with a Ford Granada
diff and running gear.
Itís much more fun to drive than I ever thought.
Future development has to be the 4.6 Cosworth cylinder block.
Iím sure most KC builders could write a book on the experience. If you would
like the full saga of what went well and what didnít, Iíll need a bit more
If you would like your kit car shown on the
members page, then
email me with photographs and some words and I will put it on the web.
