DESCRIPTION

  • Sylva Autokits is a kit-car manufacturer based in Lincolnshire that was founded in 1981 by Jeremy Phillips and has developed and produced a number of small and lightweight sports cars
  • The Phoenix was a built-for-racing machine (also known as the Mk4 Striker). The core chassis was similar but the fibreglass bodywork was developed for race purposes with a curved and lowered front and wheel covering outer edges
  • Used extensively in the kit-car race series, the design was sold by Sylva to Stuart Taylor Motorsport who have since sold it on again. It has recently found a new home with Raw Engineering
  • Understood to be only one of two examples produced with the Honda VTR Firestorm 1,000cc motorcycle engine
  • Weighs just 460kgs with 134bhp, 102nm torques, revs to 9,500rpm; 4-valve heads, baffled modified sump for circuit racing, oil cooler, fuel injection, and re-packable stainless steel side exhaust, electric fan, 6-speed sequential gearbox, Quaife reversing box, clutch-less shifts when rolling and a Sierra long ratio differential
  • Comes with two spare (near-complete) Honda Firestorm engines and spare injection bodies
  • 4x 13” Minilite wheels plus 2x 14” Minilite rears for a fast circuit; Yokohama 2x 14” 0038 soft , 4x 13” 0038 soft and 4x 13” wets
  • Roll-cage, 5-point harness, plumbed-in fire extinguisher, Anderson remote plug, gel battery and quick-release steering wheel
  • AVO coil-overs dampers (nearly new), 4-pot discs brakes all round, foam filled tank (long range) and lap timer fitted
  • Accompanied by a four-wheeled lockable Brian James Trailer (original invoice in photos attached), with full PVC cover, ramps, extra ply floor, spare wheel, lock, winch, internal wheels and tyre rack (for 6)
