    Description:

    Inspired by the success of the Shelby Cobra, Ian Garrad, sales manager of the Rootes Group in Los Angeles, sent the weakly motorized Alpine Series II in the early 1960´s to Carroll Shelby and another example to Ken Miles, a former Shelby employee and racing driver. Both built a 4.7-litre Ford V8 into the two-seater, which was less than four metres long and just over one and a half metres wide. Sunbeam boss Lord William Rootes liked the prototypes so much that he immediately launched a new model and commissioned Jensen Motors in Wolverhampton to produce it in series.

    Only 536 examples of the Tiger MK II were built. Production was just intended for left-hand drive vehicles. An exception was a small series of 16 cars with right-hand drive! Of these, 6 cars were ordered by the Metroplitan Police, the rest were sold to private drivers. Further 6 vehicles were built up as RHD and delivered by the Hartwell company.

    This rare Sunbeam Tiger MK II was manufactured at Jensen Motors on 26 May 1967 and delivered to the Roots dealer George Hartwell, well known for his Hartwell Racing Team, and was driven by George Hartwell and his son Alan Hartwell himself. This Sunbeam Tiger is known among Sunbeam enthusiasts as the “Hartwell Six Tiger”. It has a well-documented history and was in the hands of a leading member of the Sunbeam Tiger Owners Club and founder of the Sunbeam Spares Company for around 25 years.

    A few years ago, the Tiger was extensively restored and technically optimised by marque experts. The vehicle has a German road registration with a historic approval.
