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 time. "

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.
