Nice paint, chrome, and interior. The car starts right up and runs strong. Inspired by Carroll Shelby’s success in shoehorning a Ford V8 into the AC Ace to create the Cobra, Rootes asked Shelby to perform the same trick with its Sunbeam Alpine sports car.
Vastly superior to its Alpine progenitor in performance terms. Tigers would go on to enjoy success in both racing and rallying over the years. Don’t miss this iconic British roadster with V8 power.
