Can continuation classics be used on the road?
Aston Martin DB4 GT NO
‘Aston Martin Works will be delivering a track-only car. After that it would be up to the individual customer to decide whether or not they want to try to register their car for road use.’ Kevin Watters, Aston Martin Works
Jaguar Lightweight E-type NO
‘Type Approval is needed for us to register new factory cars. We can’t Type Approve these, so we sell them as competition cars, though some owners have had their cars registered.’ Tony Schult, Jaguar Heritage
Jaguar XKSS NO
‘It’s built as a 1957 car to 1957 standards. Owners can submit for Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) testing, but we’re actually selling them as period competition cars.’ Tony Schult, Jaguar Heritage
‘Our continuations are as close to the originals as we can get. Modifications are needed to comply with current IVA regulations, but they can be road registered on current UK plates.’ Richard Joyce, Alvis Car Company
