Jaguar Challenger (factory built)

1972 • 5,000 Miles • SOLD

An unusual car for BSC to offer but she came from a very good classic car customer of ours who purchased her in order to enjoy everyday.
She was factory built and supplied and is mainly based on Jaguar XJ6 components including the lovely twin cam 4.2 litre engine and gearbox.
The Challenger company made a few cars and sold them mainly to customers who could not afford the price of an original series One roadster but still wanted
To have the looks and practicality of more modern mechanicals.
Most of the suspension,instruments etc are Jaguar based and you feel like you are at home when everything is reminiscent of the brand.
She has only covered 5000 miles since new and also has hard/soft tops
On the road she drives really well with only 984 kgs and loads of power progress is brisk and she handles well a very tight chassis compared to some original E Types.
Overall a great proposition for someone who wants a good useable great looking classic whilst easier to drive than the original.
Just had a thorough service, new mot and a new mohair tonneau fitted.
