AutoHunter's Jeff Sutton reviews this iconic roadster


Ever wanted a car that is produced by a British company but has the touch of the legendary name of Shelby? Well tune in to the next episode where our Automotive Expert Jeff Sutton goes over this 1966 Sunbeam Tiger!

This car represents the fun and sporty aspect of classic British sports cars vehicles but one thing. Speed. Carol Shelby and Ken Miles stepped in to help the Rootes Group shoe-horn a 289ci V8 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor in to the Alpine body, paired with a 4-speed manual transmission, essentially building another Shelby Cobra!
