The Basics

Is the Aristocat a replica kit car, and if so, what is it a replica of? The Aristocat Sports is not a replica of any specific Jaguar XK model, but evokes the spirit of the XK120, XK140 and XK150 models of the 1950's. It has XK120/140 wing profile, but is more akin to the XK150 with the extra width from the front being only half an inch per side wider. The more up to date spaceframe chassis is different to the original car`s ladder frame.

The Aristocat FH Coupe is a dimensionally exact replica of the XK120 / 140.

 

How long will it take to build an Aristocat? Anything from a few months to 10 years depending on the time you want to commit to it. Martin Webb (The Aristocat Register Chairman) took about 1200 hours of build time.
