THOSE mourning the loss of TVR and Marcos may have a 2-seat 6.0-litre V8 roadster alternative – the Breckland Beira.
And getting hold of one has now become a little easier. The manufacturer has just signed up a new dealer.
Dream Machines of Heathfield, East Sussex, is the latest appointment for the Norfolk manufacturer, which has designs on further expansion in the UK and Europe.
Dealer principal Tony Waite was certainly excited by the opportunity. ‘From our long experience representing marques in this sector, there is a healthy demand for high-quality, limited-production two-seat sportscars with proper enthusiast packaging and great dynamics.’
The 155mph car is based on the Opel GT platform (the ‘Vauxhall VX220’ replacement that sadly isn’t coming to the UK). Breckland has added bespoke body, suspension and brakes – plus a 400bhp, 155mph Corvette engine that, courtesy of an extra fuel tank, can be run on LPG.
A further boast are low running costs. Mike Rawlings, commercial director of Breckland, said: ‘The Beira has been specified to give tremendous performance and driving pleasure but without the pain of high servicing costs, which are so frequently the blight of ultra-high performance sportscars.’
Sounds tempting? Reckon selling a Beira could be of interest? Then drop them a line here. We’ll be doing the same, to see if we can’t road-test what sounds an intriguing sports car…
