Roger Allard seems to be obsessed with doing this thing right, with proper, modern engineering and an attention to detail you have to see to appreciate, right down to the fabric wrapping on the wiring harness. The leather-lined cockpit is a treat, the bucket seats much more comfortable and supportive than the bench in the original, and the parts of the body that are plastic are cleverly disguised in places that others neglect.
Overall, the J2X is up to the standards of the best replicars we’ve seen, and it’s a bunch of fun to drive.
“The Allard Motor Works J2X MKII is a modern hand-crafted version of the famed British competition roadster that stirred crowds in Europe and North America in the early 1950s. Our modern version integrates the latest technology into the same design, to provide a safer, more comfortable and reliable vehicle than its predecessor, without compromising performance.
We are finding places to make improvements as we go. Some of these improvements will not be noticeable by the client, however amongst those that are significant are the following: body panels alongside the engine are now removable; we offer title steering, power steering, lights in the trunk compartment, solid covers for the tail light fixtures and wiring, cleaner wiring harness, mud flaps, optional console to accommodate two cans of pop, the iPhone and more; a bluetooth speaker unit to facilitate the use of GPS directions; a “Legacy Key” – this will be a USB key engraved with the J2x serial number and loaded with all of the specs, part numbers, sources, owner’s manual, electrical wiring layout, and more.”
Currently, we will be installing GM’s RamJet 350 EFI. Other engine options to come as soon as a) these are available and b) that we get our ‘low-volume manufacturer’ accreditation.
