I have seen the T6 Fabrications website http://www.triumphspitfirelemans.com/ and have been really taken by their Triumph GT6 Le Mans reconstruction cars. I was wondering if any one here knew what sort of costs would be involved in getting a Triumph GT6 Le Mans built by them to that sort of standard you see on their website.

Is there anyone in the west Midlands area that has one?

Has any one here dealt with T6 Fabrications?

I think Jigsaw Racing had one a le mans not sure of the base vehicle.

They are up near kettering.

Google should bring up there details.

the t6 gt6 lemans is a fibreglass body tub, very very good quality, but not original as the original was aluminium bodied with a fibreglass roof. Expect around £6000 for the bodyshell complete.

Do T6 GT6's come up for sale second hand all that often?

In stead of asking for a T6 Le Mans price here have you considered giving them a call - number is at the bottom of the Specs & Pricing page.

As for the Jigsaw Le Mans replica this is a true replica and not an inspired-by kit. They have said they would make one for someone else but the price tag was probably going to be 6-digits (Le Mans cylinder heads don't come up often and a hand-built aluminium body doesn't come cheap!). On the other hand the origonal Jigsaw car was good-enough and had enough origonal or re-manufactured parts to get FIA papers to race at the Le Mans Classic and FIA classic races.

Thanks J17

Couldn't get hold of anyone at the time and knew someone here would know.

I have also emailed them as well.

they are produced in such limited quantity and with such quality, they wont be any cheaper in fact they probably worth more due to the lead time on one.

i've been into spitfires for 10 years, never seen one second hand for sale, nor do i ever expect to see one.
