RONART W152 S6 4.2Ltr
The Ronart W152 is a British, hand-built, high-performance two-seater sports/racing car suitable for use on road or track. It reproduces the classic style of the front-engined Grand Prix cars, and combines today's performance with reliability, safety and advanced composite materials.
This is a very rare opportunity to purchase one of the finest Ronart W156 Sports available on the market today. Utilising Jaguar running gear, these cars are fiercely sought after throughout Europe. This particular example has just been refurbished by the renowned historic race car fabricator Max Szewczyk, to an exceptionally high standard, with many hours being lavished on this 1940/50’s inspired racer.
It is 'today's classic', one that will never go out of style and is unique amongst other cars available today. Evocative of the Grand Prix racing cars of the 1950's, such as Mercedes, HWM Jaguars, Vanwall and the 250F Maserati. Approximately 100 cars have been built, most of which are known, but some are not.
Finished in Gunmetal metallic coachwork, complemented by hand crafted aluminium detailing and professionally trimmed in the finest period Ox blood leather upholstery. The backbone chassis was designed by Spyder Engineering Ltd, who manufactured chassis for Lotus. The cockpit is made as a monocoque design utilising Kevlar and steel tubes for extra rigidity, and the body being manufactured in fibre composite.
