KEY FEATURES

worldwide patented power drivetrain system

Under the brand-new heritage bodyshell from British Motor Heritage, sits the patented power drivetrain system, which places the electricmotor at the rear of the car.

turntide lithium-ion battery

Turntide lithium-ion battery technology sits under the bonnet, providing perfectly balanced weight distribution. This gives the driver much better handling of the car, retaining that sports car feel, and allows the maximum battery volume to be housed.

iconic bodyshells

British Motor Heritage body shells and panels are produced utilising traditional skills matched by the extensive use of modern materials, equipment and processes. 

The bodyshells are manufactured to the original specifications courtesy of the original tooling. 

HAND-STITCHED LEATHER UPHOLSTERY

With the very highest levels of craftsmanship every finished interior is exquisite from the accuracy of the patterns to the quality of the stitch detail.
