: Dave - Just read the article -looks like someone else considered the twin cam option !!
: Interesting there was a big V8 version - I wonder -did it race the Gilbern GT with the V8 in it ?
Hi Chris, I found the American powered V8 in Thames Ditton back in the early 80's. The owner was not clear about its past, although it had a really chunky roll cage, I suspect the car never raced. Don't confuse this one with the Daimler V8 based Tornado prototype which still exists in Kent, a very different animal which won at least one rally in France. Glad you liked the article, Good car interesting history, written with a good understanding of our cars.
