Allard Motor Works Ready to Roll

Allard Motor Works, for those who don't already know, is the Canadian firm that has recreated Sydney Allard's 1950s J2X two-seat roadster. According to a recent report the company is now ready to begin sales of the right-hand drive modern day interpretation. Called the J2X mkII, it is set to be distributed in Europe exclusively through Phil Dunmore's Premium Classic Cars of Iken, Suffolk. Although official pricing is still not finalized, expected cost is somewhere around £100,000 ($160,000).

The Allard rebirth is the brainchild of Canadian Roger Allard, who ironically doesn't have any connection to Sydney Allard. The new car is being thought of as a slightly larger recreation of the original J2X and is powered by GM 350 hp 5.7-liter V8 and mated to a five-speed manual. Chrysler 5.7 and 6.1-liter V8 engines are also offered if the buyer so chooses. The new car also has much imrpoved safety and practicality than the original.

The rear-wheel drive retro roadster has also been endorsed by both the British Allard family and has been recognized by the Allard registry. A few J2X mkII's have already been built, one specifically for Jay Leno. Photos courtesy of Allard Motor Works.
