Launched in 2011 at the Stoneleigh Kit Car Show, the GTA was introduced as a development of the Lotus Seven-styled Tiger Avon sports car. Based on the road- and track-proven Avon chassis, the GTA was designed to appeal to a broader range of buyers. The full width bodywork, with a distinctive rear end treatment, not only gives the GTA character, but also provides improved aerodynamics and slippery, curvaceous lines. The forward-hinged front end offers engine access, whilst the cockpit was designed to comfortably accommodate larger drivers, whilst offering the nimble handling characteristics of the Avon model.

This beautiful factory-finished example has covered only a handful of miles since being completed by the Tiger factory in early 2023 on behalf of the owner. The powerplant for the build was a new crated 2-litre Ford Black Top Zetec Engine with lightened flywheel and alloy sump, fed via Tiger Alpha Throttle bodies and breathing through a Zetec tubular four-into-one exhaust system. The engine drives through a Type 9 gearbox, Ford Sierra 3.92 differential with matching driveshafts and alloy hubs, a quick steering rack, Spax shock absorbers and uprated four-pot disc brakes on each corner. Caliber Motion Wheels in Graphite are fitted, shod with grippy Toyo tyres. The chassis was powder coated and the body finished in British Racing Green with a yellow nose surround, and sensibly a rollover hoop was added. The cost of all of this effort was over £28,000, as indicated in the accompanying file.

Putting out a healthy c.170bhp, and weighing under 900kg, this very recently completed Tiger makes a very interesting, fun and unusual sports car for fast road or track use. Completed in January 2023 and with fewer than 10 miles recorded, the GTA is offered with a Certificate of Newness by Tiger, V627/1 report, IAC/IVA documents, and UK V5C.
