The boys and girls at Dowsetts Classic Cars in Hertfordshire have been with further developments on the excellent Mazda MX-5-based Tipo 184 kit inspired by the iconic Alfa Romeo 158.

The subject of a TV series devised and presented by Ant Anstead, there’s also a single make race series for the car organised by the BRSCC.

The company has been working on a roadgoing version and just before Christmas the demonstrator passed its IVA test.

It, therefore, now joins the wonderfully quirky list of road-legal single-seaters.

Starter kits cost £14,490 inc VAT and consist of all the major bespoke components required for your Tipo184 build, namely the bespoke tubular spaceframe chassis, handbuilt body panels, aluminium grille, handbuilt exhaust and gear linkage, laser-cut dash panel and steering column.

From this …

… to this. A Tipo 184, based on Mazda MX-5 donor

A shortened and balanced propshaft is available on an exchange basis for UK customers and to special order for the rest of the world. You can buy all the parts in individual packages although a complete kit is also available at £23,994 inc VAT.
