Footnotes

  • Sussex-based kit-car builder Pilgrim manufactures sports cars in a variety of classic styles, the Sumo being influenced by the legendary AC Cobra. Introduced in 1987, the Sumo offered enthusiasts a less expensive route to 'Cobra' ownership, using Ford Cortina engines and running gear. The Mk2 brought with it Ford Granada independent rear suspension and the option of Ford V6 engines or, later, the Rover V8. In 1993 the Mk3 Sumo was introduced in two forms, one using Ford Sierra running gear, the other Jaguar. The steel chassis combines ladder frame, spaceframe and monocoque construction techniques, while the bodywork is hand crafted in glassfibre. Like many similar vehicles the Sumo is available for self-build or as a 'turn key' car, with a wide range of options to individual customer choice.

    This Pilgrim Cobra Replica is powered by a Chevrolet '350' 5,657cc, V8 engine that produces 260hp and drives the wheels via a competition clutch and a five-speed gearbox. As the car weighs only 1,100kg, exciting performance is guaranteed. It should be noted that the date of manufacture given on the accompanying Austrian registration papers - 1971 - is actually that of the donor car used in the Pilgrim's construction.

Saleroom notices
