Spectre was a small British manufacturer that successfully produced the Spectre R42, designed as a modern Ford GT40 for the 90’s. The Spectre car company appeared to melt away in the late 1990’s but the rights and property were taken over by C2P (Concept to Production) Ltd who continued to secretly develop the idea of a new Spectre model while providing automotive consultancy work to various manufacturers. By 2001 C2P were designing a new supercar under the name of Project 007 and the Spectre P107 here is the prototype that was built up to prove the concept in 2003. Unusually this unique prototype is now road registered in the UK and provides a truly one-off car that can still be suitably personalised by the new owner.
Built using a lightweight carbonfibre body, this sleek two-seater is presented in the original ‘tiger stripe’ camouflage from the original road testing. Scissor doors gain entry to a custom cabin featuring leather, alcantara and wilton carpets. Through the glass partition behind the seats you catch a glimpse of the 4.6-litre Ford V8 nestled in front of the rear axle which is mated to a CIMA 6-speed manual transmission. Originally purchased as a partly dismantled prototype from the factory, the current vendor set about a 5 year rebuild to UK regulation standards and registered the car in 2015. This extraordinary and unique car comes with a plethora of spares including mechanicals and body moulds, allowing the next custodian to customise the vehicle to their own specifications. A full specification sheet can be sent to any interested parties.
A truly one off and individual car that offers an opportunity to continue development of your very own British Supercar or simply take to the roads as is. However, do expect to be stopped and questioned because this is a car which attracts a lot of attention.
