Its V8 was built by Traco, stretched to 4.3 litres and fitted with quad-Webers. The flares were a work of art. It ran a Muncie gearbox, lightweight body panels, and Jaguar diff. Bill Shaw had been enlisted to oversee the program. Its thought two cars were built, one of which ended up in Australia after the BL Competition dept closed, and became a Sports Sedan.
