First and best selling model was the Wildcat .
Although it is not an exact replica of the E-Type, the Wildcat produced by JPR Cars is described as 'the definitive E-Type kit', recreating the MKI Jaguar profile but with its own personality intact. More than three years of development have followed from the time of the prototype's completion, so that the Wildcat is now easy to build in kit form and an efficient performer once completed. Using any of the Ford engines from 1600 to V6 3000cc, or the Rover V8, the Wildcat is mechanically simpler and more reliable than the big Jaguar. A Ford Pinto based version is available for the American market and a range of Japanese engines can be fitted in the Far East export model. A complex spaceframe backbone chassis provides the basis for a strong GRP bodyshell and an original type forward hingeing bonnet. A glassfibre hardtop is also available.
The vehicle was 20 cm wider than the original. A chassis of TVR formed the base. The rear rigid axle came from Ford . Initially a four-cylinder pinto engine from the Ford Cortina was used in the vehicles. Later, more powerful four- and six-cylinder engines from Jaguar Cars , the Ford Sierra components were used. This model created until 1996 about 122 copies. The Wildcat 2 + 2 supplemented the range in 1987. The vehicle was 23 cm longer and offered two small rear seats in addition.
