The Tiger HS6 is our tribute to the classic Lotus 6. With our long history of producing this type of car, we felt it appropriate to launch a car that reflected the design that started a legend.
The period look however, is not just on the surface. The engine, gearbox, axles, hubs etc., can all be sourced from early donor cars to give your finished HS6 an authentic look and feel, inside and out.
An ideal donor for the HS6 would be the Triumph Herald or Spitfire. These are plentiful, and are readily available with decaying bodies but excellent mechanical parts. Even the E93A or 100e side valve engine from an old Ford would look very authentic and work well.
The kit has been designed to enable the customer to adapt their build to cater for preferences on the degree of period authenticity, versus ultimate performance, especially as brand new high performance engines and transmissions can also fitted.
The Triumph Herald for example, will provide, amongst other items, the Engine, Gearbox, Hubs, and even the instrumentation. The rear axle can be sourced from various old cars – like Escort, MG and others.
The HS6 is only available as a factory built car. Various older classic power units can be used. Contact Tiger for more information.
