The Sunbeam Tiger was a British sports car produced from 1964 to 1968. The two-door body was simple and refined and was often referred to as a small Shelby Cobra. Powered by a V8 Ford enginelike the Shelby’s A.C. Cobra, the Sunbeam Tiger had a power output of 164 hp, which was more than twice the power of its predecessor, the Sunbeam Alpine. 60 mph could be reached from still in 9.5 secondsalmost twice as quick as the Alpine. The engine was linked to a four-speed gearbox provided by Ford. The live-rear-axle also came from Ford but the chassis was the one of the Alpine, modified by Shelby. The suspension was stiffer and a new rack and pinion steering was installed. To sum up, the Sunbeam Tiger offered satisfying performance, slick design and great handling, road holding and comfort. 6,495 examples of the first generation of Sunbeam Tiger were sold before an upgraded version was introduced in 1967, featuring boosted performance.
