Was that V8 not called a Sunbeam Tiger? I seem to recall a tale about an american V8 engine being shoe-horned into an Alpine for the US Market and they called it a Tiger. Could be wrong of course, twas a long time ago :cry:

Initially the Sunbeam Tiger was fitted with a 260ci, the subsequent rare MarkII was fitted with a 289ci motor. A sort of soft AC Cobra.

Dead right Dadlushe and Lana, it was a tiger! the tail fins by this time had disappeared in favour of a rounded light cluster and along the side ran a chrome strip incorporating the word tiger. usual upgrades to suspension and brakes... at that time cortina gt's and lotus cortina's were the car that used to be the DB's but i left a lotus cortina standing from the lights as the tiger at that time hadnt been officially launched so he thought he was up against a standard alpine....they were quite fun to drive!!!! :shock:
