Steadman TS100 for Sale - Registration No. XLX121
A decade or so ago we found our dream car the Jaguar SS100 .It soon became apparent that they were really only for the collector with prices in excess of £650K and they do not handle well either,at least not up to modern day performance standards, anyway for motorway unstressed travel.So, we then started looking into Suffolk replicas,last listed at just under 100k, now forced into closure by Jaguar copyright etc, but as they are really only fibreglass copies,they still sit up high ,with a poor centre of gravity,no power brakes,no power steering,narrow track etc
Seven or so years ago we discovered Steadman who had the answer as he had been inspired by an original and decided he could do better by building his own homage to overcome all the original SS's failings through his company Ottercraft ltd , so he produced 28 extremely rare Historic registered cars,ours is number 15,taking 1850 skilled man hours each to coach build in heavy 18g aluminium on a steel chassis, using both round and square tubing with cross bracing to improve torsional stiffness,no ash frames here.The strong secure passenger cell is protected by a heavy aluminium bulkhead firewall.
They very rarely come to the market, so we joined the club and after 6 years eventually became the custodians of XLX 121, formerly our chairmans manual with overdrive 4.2 XK powered,power disc brakes,power steering,heater demisters,aero's,side screens,tonneau, full weather gear+real unique provenance,from the factory build record archives ,factory owners manual along with FSH,less than 14K miles.Our chairman still retains his identical black automatic which he now finds an easier drive,I only ever wanted a manual, but I suppose needs must.
Our car has every option and some;walnut dash was a non factory later commission,Jaguar spinners,Jaguar radiator top sculpture,spotlights+hand spot,Woolton carpets,leather bucket seats, door cards and trim , power steering and power brakes,recent fully bespoke stainless exhausts , 5 x new tyres, battery and alternator.
Replacement value is at a premium due to its condition,rarity and genuine provenance P.O.A.
A lesser fibreglass SS100 replica is for sale currently at 50k:
There are many pictures before our ownership and our light restoration and detailing of XLX on this our club site.
