Kougar Cars were founded during the mid 1970’s by Rick Stevens and many competed in circuit racing and sprints both in the UK and USA. The founder still today maintains an active interest in Kougars as President and Concours judge for the Owners Club. Built on Jaguar running gear, Kougars were not inspired by any particular car but there is resemblance to the Frazer Nash TT Replica, Healey Silverstone and HWM cars of the 1950’s. The Kougar is based around a substantial tubular space frame chassis, fibre glass body and weigh less than 1000 kg’s with running gear from the Jaguar S Type and 420 Saloons of the late 1960’s.
This exceptional, correctly registered (Kougar) example has a rich history of extensive European touring and is a former Concours award winning car. WPJ 27G has had many continental trips including most of Alpine Europe, the Mille Miglia route, Le Mans Classic, Spa 6 hours, Angouleme, Caux Retro, and the Nurburgring Old Times race. The car has also been driven up the Prescott Hill Climb, around the famous Nordschleife track a number of times and competed in the Brighton Speed Trials in the late 1980's/ early 90's. In total the car has covered over 90, 000 miles and has been subject to continuous development upgrading throughout its life and many articles detailing works done by the owner/ builder, who was Chairman of the Kougar Owners Club have been published in the Club Magazine. It has also featured in Kougar Cars Ltd sales brochures.

The most recent owner purchased the Kougar from the original builder/ owner in 2013 and on purchase he had the intention of giving the car a cosmetic makeover but went much further. Over 400 man hours of mechanical/ electrical work was undertaken by a Jaguar master technician during 2013/ 2014 and there is a detailed file documenting the restoration program as well as photographs. The body was then completely re-furbished and re-painted, the interior was then re-trimmed, seats re-trimmed in leather, new carpets and a two piece double duck hood and around 9000 miles have been covered since the work.

The car offers an incredible spec with the uprated Jaguar 3. 8 engine being treated to new 9:1 pistons, new bearings, lightened flywheel, Kent fast road cams, Big valve cylinder head and high flow water pump. The car also features rebuilt triple two inch HD8 carbs, twin fuel pumps, electronic ignition, thermostatic oil cooler, custom made high efficiency aluminium radiator with Kenlowe fan, stainless steel exhaust system, 5 speed Getrag gearbox, 3. 31 Power-Lok differential and the Jaguar springs and anti-roll bar and adjustable shock absorbers are re-routed due to the much lighter 980kg weight of the Kougar against the 1500kg donor Jaguar Saloon. The Kougar has discs all round retaining the Jaguar servo assisted S Type/ 420 braking systems with Series One XJ6 calipers. This impressive car also boasts triple laced 15x6 competition wire wheels with 205/ 70/ 15 VR rated Blockley tyres, aluminium turned dash with Jaguar instruments and Moto-Lita steering wheel.

This is without doubt one of the very best examples known to exist, it has had multiple 1st place Concours awards, the most recent one in 2019 at the Kougar Owners Club meeting. The car presents beautifully with an exceptional finish and the engine bay is ultra-impressive with the highly polished cam covers and general high level of detailing. On the road the Kougar is magnificent and the performance is matched by a fabulous, loud exhaust note. The uprated 3. 8 Jaguar unit offers blistering acceleration, the five speed Getrag box is superb to use and this quick, light car just wants to be driven and driven. Upon test drive its clear to see why the car has been so extensively toured, it's something very special on the road and is in top class mechanical condition throughout.
