".....The most fun I've had in a car...ever!" These are the words Top Gear's Richard Hammond used to describe his test drive of the original Wildcat.
The Wildcat first appeared in 2000. Over the last decade, this formidable competition-focussed off-roader has developed into perhaps the most balanced and consistent Rally Raid machine available, combining exceptional performance and handling with a satisfying ability to extract the very best from every driver. Victories in the World’s most demanding Rally Raids and Cross country championships including record making success at the Dakar, Tuareg and Pharoan Rally’s, stand as testament to the Wildcat’s innate capacity.
The Challenge Car* is centred around a high strength space frame chassis, providing extreme rigidity for both safety and off-road handling. All new suspension turrets have been designed to carry fully adjustable coilover dampers with remote reservoirs. Wildcat electronics and engine management have been specifically programmed to accommodate the new GM derived LS3 V8 offering over 430 bhp and 540 Nm of torque. The drive train has been strengthened to allow for the uprated power units with either 6 speed, manual, automatic or sequential transmission options, whilst the transfer box, differentials and axles have been uprated accordingly.
* With The Wildcat Challenge, owners can climb into their professionally maintained car and run a worry free rally at a selection of major UK and European Off-Road events. Wildcat’s professional rally staff will fully support their Wildcat and give them the thrill of a lifetime.
Owners can satisfy their dreams of epic desert adventures on a classic rally raid in Morocco, or try racing in one of Wildcat's European Baja’s. Race cross country on a WRC rally stage, or Welsh Hill climb. The Challenge allows owners to take their off-roading to a whole new level.
