Rare Warp 8 Kit For Sale Again

The amazing Warp 8 that I posted ages ago is back on eBay (#130277374011) in Blackwood, Caerphilly, UK. If I was in the UK I’d snatch this ultra-rare oddity up in a heartbeat. It’s such a special car! Please, someone restore this beauty!

    I AM SADLY THE SELLER OF THIS RARE BEAST. IT IS SUCH AN INCREDIBLE LOOKING CAR, AND SINCE IT HAS BEEN FOR SALE WE HAVE FOUND OUT MORE ABOUT ITS HISTORY, WHICH UNTILL NOW HAS BEEN A MYSTERY. EVEN MORE INCREDIBLE IS THAT IT WAS MADE BY ONE MAN, OWEN WILLIAMS. IN ABOUT 1972. HE MADE A WOODEN MODEL TO SCALE, BEFORE MAKING A FULL SIZE BUCK TO TAKE A MOULD OFF. THIS CAR HERE IS THE FIRST OUT OF THE MOULD. THE OTHER CAR, IT SEEMS ONLY 2 WERE MADE DUE TO THERE OVER ENGINEERED BODYWORK, 20MM THICK IN PLACES WITH STEEL TUBE FASTENED TO CHASSIS THEN BODY DROPPED OVER AND LAMINATED TO TUBE, FAR TO TIME CONSUMING AND EXPENSIVE TO MAKE IT COST EFFECTIVE TO MASS PRODUCE. IT ALSO APPEARS THAT BOTH HAVE HAD THE PORSCHE ENGINE UPRATED TO ABOUT 105HP FROM 90 BEFORE FITTING. IT WAS WELL WORTH DOING BECAUSE DESPITE THE LOOK OF THE CAR IT DRIVES AND I HAVE TAKEN IT AROUND OUR INDUSTRIAL ESTATE MANY TIMES AND IT IS VERY QUICK, I’M SURE THAT HAD IT GONE INTO PRODUCTION IT WOULD HAVE GIVEN SOME OF THE SO CALLED SPORTS CARS OF THE DAY A WIPPING.IT SADDLY SEEMS THAT IN THE PERSUITE OF THE ULTIMATE QUAILTY KIT CAR OF IT’S DAY THE ENDED THE PROJECT BEFORE IT STARTED. I REALLY HOPE THE NEW OWNER WILL DO IT PROUD THEY RESTORE IT.I WILL PASS ON DETAILS OF THIS WE SITE SO THEY CAN KEEP YOU INFORMED.THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO MENTION IT HERE HOPEFULLY NOW IT WILL NOT JUST VANISH, LIKE IT HAS APPEARED TO HAVE FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS OR MORE.
