Can con­tin­u­a­tion clas­sics be used on the road?

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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

Alvis YES

‘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
