1965 MK1 Sunbeam Tiger 5.0L V8

sign up


This is some of the best fun you can have in a car! Starting the V8 produces an earth-rumbling sound track that penetrates the cabin, slipping the car into first gear and setting off only invigorates all of your senses.

The noise, the smell and all round sense of occasion this Tiger offers is like nothing else on the road. The 1965 Sunbeam Tiger is a classic British sports car known for its combination of sleek design and powerful performance, making it a fantastic classic car collectible. The story of the Sunbeam Tiger is a beautifully complicated Anglo / American affair that has somewhat been forgotten over the last 60 years.

This Sunbeam Tiger has had an extraordinary life that many cars could only wish for. It came back to the UK from South Africa in 1989 and has since become a competitive and championship-winning historic racer. Under the lightweight bonnet reveals a David Henning Motorsport prepared 302 5.0L engine which has a list of additional upgrades. Along with safety features, drive train and suspension setup has resulted in the following success in the 2000's: 2005 Class A Joint Champion 2006 Sunbeam 3rd in the Championship, Class A Joint class Champion 2007 Sunbeam Intermarque Championship winners, Class A Runner Up and Runner Up in Championship 2009 Sunbeam Intermarque Chamionship winners, Class A Runner Up and Runner Up in Championship 2010 Sunbeam 3rd in Championship and Class A Runner Up In its more recent history, it has been to fewer race events, however it has been lovingly maintained. All of the safety equipment has been kept serviced, along with all the mechanical components.

The current owner in 2023 commissioned 20k of work to prepare the Tiger for his entry into Classic Car racing. Since the work has been completed and with one demo day at Castle Coombe due to ongoing backpain the owner has decided to sell. This gives the new owner a great opportunity to jump straight in and use it on the track or the local B-roads.

There is to much information to list on the build of this Championship winning car so please enquire for more information. It must also be mentioned that the original numbers matching 260 ci engine and ancillaries with two sets of Minilite wheels and tyres plus seats are available with separate negotiation.
