Breaking the Supercharged Sylva Phoenix...:(
jeffw - 12/9/17 at 05:09 PM

So the time has come, the end is nigh. Serious enquires only please. The Phoenix is a Cat B write off and cannot be returned to the road. There is rear bodywork damage and may have bent the chassis. The car starts and runs/engages gear and drives/stops without any real issue although this was only at low speeds. Engine seems fine and gearbox goes up and down the box without an issue. Car does appear to track straight.

Engine package - 400BHP/300 ft lb
Zetec Blacktop - forged pistons, rods, Neil Roper head (new), CNC Heads 300 cams
TTS/Omex Rotrex Kit
Omex ITBs with 660cc injectors & GTiR Plenum on a billet backing plate.
Omex 600 ECU
Zero Exhaust (Big)
TTV Flywheel & Tilton twin pack clutch
Raceline sump and waterrail.
All the intercooler/radiator/loom/remote filter/oil cooler/fuel system etc etc.

Everything you need up to the Gearbox


Quaife QBE60G sequential Gearbox, Helical version to suit above - 5500
Quaife QBE60G Gearbox - 6-speed HELICAL
Ratios : 1st :2.682 2nd2.00 3rd 1.55 4th 1.244 5th 1.000 6th 0.863
Input shaft type: Ford Short
Clutch: Cable clutch / Normal Release Bearing
Bell housing : Zetec
Comes with manual shifter.

Full paddleshift system for the above with Geartronic GCU, compressor/valves/accumulator/60G fittings/actuator/blipper, basically everything to make a 60G on paddles - 1500

Race Technology Dash 2 - 450

Race Technology Video 4 with 4 cameras - 800

Tillet 3.5 Carbon seat, 2 off, 150 (these are used and have damage/cracks in them)

Indycar blade ARB to fit Striker/Phoenix - 300

Racelogic traction control system - no wheel sensors - 300

3 Sets of Force wheels 13" Split Rims (Red/Blue/Black) with slick tyres (Sprint Compound) 8" fronts, 10" rears 900 a set. Black set has Dunlop race slicks on.
1 set of Compomotive 13 " Split Rims 8" fronts, 9.5" rears 400
1 set of 13" Dunlop race slicks, Ecoboost FF size 100
1 set of 13" Kumho F3 wets, hardly used 150

English Axle bracketed for a Striker/Phoenix with Wilwood brakes (including hand brake), Quaife ATB with a 3.54 CWP and 3J half-shafts. CWP is likely to need replacing at some point in the near future - 1000.

Tilton Top mounted pedal box with hydralic clutch and brake pedal. 500

There is a long list of other parts including LED headlights, savage dash switches, new extinguisher, two sets of Schroth 6 point harness, SPA Steering wheel, Front Wilwood Midlite calipers and discs.

So this will work in one of two ways.

Option 1 - someone offers me 17K for the complete car and then breaks it or repairs it as a track only car, if this happens I will allow the 4.5K worth of Penske shocks to got with it, you will get the car and all wheels/tyres I have for it. There will be no V5.
Option 2 - I get a series of serious offers for the various elements, when I have enough I will get my mechanic to strip the car and dispose of the chassis/body. For this to happen I will need to have sold the engine/gearbox. So I'm not selling all the wheels tyres and rear axle before the engine/gearbox

I will also not be shipping large objects (engine or box), if you want it, come and see what you are buying and take it away. All the items are sold as seen, no comeback or returns. To my best knowledge it all works but I can't be 100% certain. The car is based in Kent and will likely be broken up in Chatham.

Any questions please ask away.

There are loads of videos/pictures online if you need to see what it looks/goes like.

Couldn't you get a new chassis, iva and off you go again?

jeffw - 13/9/17 at 05:26 AM

You could, but it needs a new custom rear body and a new chassis. There would then be the faff of getting it through IVA (probable need a cat now).

OMG...cant believe after all that development it's come to this....So sorry to see this disappearing from our pages, it was an outstanding car, and in it's last guise looked simply stunning....Dam that person who ran into the back of you!!!!!!.

Sad to see this car not being used or turning up at the garage any more , have done lots of work on this for Jeff and thought that this was the year it was going to do the business. Have spilt lots of blood and sweat on it so hope who ever gets the car and parts puts them to good use. It was truly a one off.

jeffw - 13/9/17 at 08:31 PM

Sold in one package.

jeffw - 14/9/17 at 10:11 AM

Right, the guy who was down to buy it all is a waster. I'm open to offers on the whole car as it stands at 15K. Wheels/tyres except a set on the car will remain with me.

Before I actual start breaking this...

One last chance to let it continue to live.

The chassis appears to be OK (i will not guarantee it is but it measures up OK) and I have has a estimate from Sylva Sportscars to repair the rear tub and spray the car for 3-4K.

In the hope that someone will buy it and use it as a trackcar or compete in it I am prepared to do the following.

Complete car (400BHP supercharged engine/anciallaries etc etc etc) as listed with one set of Force Wheels (either black with race slicks on or red with sprint slicks) for 15K. It will have no V5 so would require re-IVAing to get a new plate.

intrested in the front discs and calipers if you do break it...
