2016 Sylva J16 Vectis - NOW SOLD


A 1.8 K Series VVC powered, mid-engined, 60-style sports car in French Blue.

Based on a 1.8 VVC MGF re-utilising a number of parts that were reconditioned prior to installation.

Very light, weighing in at c570kg with 42%:58% front to rear weight distribution so goes and handles very well as you would expect of a car designed by Jeremy Philips.

Build work completed to a high standard, with panel work very tidy and interior well-trimmed and finished.

IVA’d in March 2016 and just passed its first MOT in March 19 with just over 1000 miles on the clock.

I will let the private plate go with the car, too, which clearly matches the model/make.

Grey powder-coated space frame integrating MGF rear subframe.
MGF front uprights and hubs with HiSpec 4 pot callipers and rotors
Independent tubular wishbone front suspension.
AVO adjustable front shock absorbers.

1990 Aston Martin Replica Circa 1930's based on TD kit

This is an excellent example of the marque with added benefit of modern, simple mechanics. In British Racing Green it has a nippy 1800cc engine. It is a head turner in any situation. Sorry to let it go but family circumstances dictate that it sadly needs to be parted with.
