J15 Specifications

Sylva J15

Iconic English racing cars like Lotus, Merlyn, Elva, Lola, Chevron and Cooper are the inspiration for this classic looking sports racing car. The Sylva J15 evokes this “Spirit of the Sixties” with modern mechanicals.

The beautifully sculptured glass fibre body cleverly disguises the higher engine cover necessary to hide the fantastic all alloy Ford 1600 Duratec engine and gearbox. Similarly the single headlights are carefully absorbed into the flowing body lines, with perspex headlight covers available to complete the retro look.

The cockpit with its wrap around screen should accommodate most and has been praised for its ergonomic qualities and seat comfort. The sills offering a surprising amount of covered stowage space.

The multi-tube chassis has its side intrusion framework triangulated into the structure to give superb rigidity and greater driver protection. The suspension layout, derived from the J15’s acclaimed stable mate the Riot, is designed to give sensible road characteristics but will not disgrace itself on the track, following in the much envied Sylva tradition.

The superb Ford power plant is extraordinarily light and doesn’t compromise the handling in any way. The combination of this in a streamlined car that tips the scales at around 500kg yields performance normally found only in exotic machinery. This allied with excellent fuel economy and low exhaust emissions keeps everyone happy!
