Rootes Group:
Rootes American Motors Inc. saw the potential for using the Cobra engine in the small Sunbeam: Ford''s 4.3-litre (260 cu in) Windsor unit. Rootes commissioned a prototype from Carroll Shelby, the man behind the Cobra project - transforming the car into the wildly popular, versatile Sunbeam Tiger.

Car's Background:
The Sunbeam Tiger was conceived on the West Coast of the USA and inspired by the success of the AC Cobra. The spotlight is increasingly on the Sunbeam Tiger, which offers a comparable character and level of performance for a fraction of the outlay for the pricey AC Cobra.

This "POOR MAN''s COBRA" model blended the Alpine body shell with an American Ford V8 engine normally found in the AC Cobra. The Ford 260 cubic inch (4260cc) V8 provides 260bhp and can propel the Tiger to 140mph.

Accelerating from 0-60 in about 7 seconds, Tigers have enjoyed success in both racing and rallying over the years. Rack and pinion steering ensures precise handling. An all-synchromesh four speed gearbox is standard, which can be coupled to an optional limited slip differential. Despite the large capacity of the V8 engine, the Tiger manages to return a respectable 20mpg thanks to its light open body.

About 7,000 Tigers were manufactured from 1965 to 1967.
