Put your location in your control panel, someone near to you may let you sit in their car

If your looking for a professional kit then the Luego Viento is the the daddy. The Haynes roadster is a touch wider than book and book is a touch wider than a tiger, especially an Avon.

I am to big for mine really. I couldn’t tour in It but I can put up with it for a Sunday blast. Have you sat in something “book” sized ? Mk Indy, Luego velocity. With minimal seats you may be surprised

I went to the Kit car show at Stoneleigh for exactly the same reason armed with a tape measure. I measured the width and where I could sat in cars. Several surprises. Almost all of the Tigers are made for midgets. Westfields of recent years are all wide body. MEV Exocet has a lot of room. Widest 7 (apart from the super wide Luegos) is the Robin Hood 2B (+) (50 cm). GBS Zero does a really good wide body car.
What did I settle on? The 44cm wide Haynes Roadster with a top hung brake pedal system which gave me somewhere to rest my left boot on a longer journey. Wetfield and GBS would be similar, the 2B is ok but not a patch on the other cars for general driving. (Sorry no experience of MK etc - even though the HR was designed by MK)

There is a variant of the Tiger Supercat designated the XL which has increased cockpit width. A fairly rare beast but there is one currently for sale on the Tiger Owners Forum.
