I spotted this Suffolk Sportscars kitcar on carandclassic.
At first I was struck by the quality of build and attention to detail but still surprised at the high bidding prices for what is essentially a kit car as we know it.
Then I noticed something wrong....
It s still registered as the Jaguar Donor car, as shown on the picture of the V5.
But it also states that is correctly registered as Historic which it is not eligible for. It is what the DVLA call a 'Kit Conversion' and therefore not eligible for Historic status and should not be MOT exempt.
It also states that it was completed in 2012 by Suffolk and should have undergone an IVA test which clearly it didn't.
The advert says "Once complete, Suffolk Jaguar carried out final road tests and licensed it with the DVLA on the 17th April 2012."
Notice they used the word 'licensed' and not 'registered' !!
The advert is not untruthful (apart from saying correctly registered as Historic) but is very misleading.
Someone is about to buy a very expensive ornament.
