Allard J2X MK II at Allard J2X MK II

The modern-day resurrection of the magnificent Allard J2X is set to return to the European roads with a projected price of around £95,000. The new Allard has the same recipe of powerful engine – lightweight body as the original sportscar. It’s got a a 350 bhp, fuel injected, GM Ram Jet V8 with over 400 lb ft of torque.

Unlike the original car though, its modern underpinnings provide comfort, reliability and blistering performance. So you can enjoy that amazing classic look and incredible performance with peace of mind.

The original Allard J2X was a limited production road racing car which totalled only 83 cars during its original production run between 1951 and 1954. The combination of powerful American V8 power and a lightweight chassis created a formidable machine that was put to good work in the hands of drivers such as Masten Gregory, Carroll Shelby and movie star, Steve Mc Queen.

Premium Classic Cars Director, Phil Dunmore says: “The Allard J2X MK II is an outstandingly good, high-quality, high-performance low-volume sports car, and its appeal will be obvious to anyone who sees or drives one. It is true to the original design but offers far greater levels of comfort, reliability and refinement. This is a bespoke, modern performance car with its roots in a glorious past and that’s a recipe that will appeal to a lot of discerning European enthusiasts.”

The J2X MK II can be seen on the Premium Classic Cars stand at the NEC Classic Motor Show, stand no. ID31, over the 12th, 13th & 14th November.
