The DREWGARD Coupe is a project in preparation. It is intended to be a high performance Grand Touring car. Andrew Gardner has designed and registered the general appearance and is preparing a steel body fitted with XJS suspension parts.  The car is inspired by his ownership for many years of a 1960's Ford V8 powered TVR Tuscan.

Apart from the Jaguar Facelift XJS front and rear axles, steering and brake system, a 2007 all aluminium Chevrolet Vortex 5.3 litre V8 engine and GM auto gearbox make up the main elements of this car.

New work creating a rear valance, incorporating a diffuser, number plate panel and exhaust outlets , is being carried out.

This is the Chevrolet 2007 Vortec all aluminium 5.3 litre V8 engine, awaiting ancillaries and installation.

This is the GM 4L60 automatic gearbox destined for this build but a Tremec manual gearbox would be highly suitable as well...
