Asking Price: Price On Application
2018 Dowsetts Comet
Current Mileage: 1,560
Registration Number: MY51ADC
As with so many iconic 1960’s British sports cars, such as the AC Cobra and Jensen Interceptor, a classic British design is mated to an all American V8. The Comet’s GM LS3 V8 provides 430 BHP and 575 Nm of torque from its 6.2 litres. Aligning raw power with modern levels of refinement and reliability perfectly.
A Tremec five-speed transmission transfers power to the road via a limited slip differential and without the intervention of electronics. The powertrain is positioned behind the front axle, giving a front-mid engine configuration which creates a neutral handling balance. The composite body sits on a box frame chassis, suspended by wishbones and a De Dion rear end.
Built to order in 2018 by Anstead’s team at Dowsetts Farm, ‘MY51 ADC’ remains the only V8 powered Comet on the road.
Finished in Porsche Crayon grey (an excellent but perhaps not obvious choice), accompanied by a lavish and extremely well appointed quilted oxblood leather interior.
The fit and finish of the Comet is highly impressive for a car of this nature, more-so its dynamic ability and finesse took me quite by surprise. During the 300 or so miles I have covered in Comet so far, I am growing to admire and enjoy the car more and more.
Bravo to Ant and his team for thinking outside the box, and executing it properly. A feat not often conquered by low volume car makers.
Offered for sale now having covered 1,560 miles from new and in perfect order throughout, this remarkable, hair-raising, charismatic, unique and undeniably charming motorcar offers the chance to enjoy a one off Comet at a fraction of their cost when new.
