"Built with Jaguar's written permission, the Aristocat uses all Jaguar components housed in a steel spaceframe chassis. For ease of build the Aristocat uses the XJ series suspension, un-modified, resulting in the car being five inches wider than the XK120 or XK140, but only one inch wider than the XK150. The additional width, added down the centre of the car, allows for a more spacious cockpit and boot than the originals and drivers of well over six feet can be easily accommodated.
Designed and built by Autotune as a replica of the famous Jaguar XK120, this open topped beauty retains the spirit of the famous Coventry marque. This Aristocat presents extremely well in green with a red interior, beige seats and sits on wire wheels. With the engine and mechanics of a Jaguar XJ6 4.2 it is easy to see why the vendor describes this Aristocat as enormous fun to drive and a real head-turner. He should know as he has owned it since 1987. The Aristocat marque has shown itself to be a well designed and proven vehicle and attracts a worldwide following. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until the end of January 2020, GRC 577N surely deserves a closer look.
