Let us introduce the
21st Century Allard
from Autoweek . . .
Roger Allard seems to be obsessed with doing this thing right, with proper, modern engineering and an attention to detail you have to see to appreciate, right down to the fabric wrapping on the wiring harness. The leather-lined cockpit is a treat, the bucket seats much more comfortable and supportive than the bench in the original, and the parts of the body that are plastic are cleverly disguised in places that others neglect.
Overall, the J2X is up to the standards of the best replicars we've seen, and it's a bunch of fun to drive.
"The Allard Motor Works J2X MKII is a modern hand-crafted version of the famed British competition roadster that stirred crowds in Europe and North America in the early 1950s. Our modern version integrates the latest technology into the same design, to provide a safer, more comfortable and reliable vehicle than its predecessor, without compromising performance.
Allard Motor Works is reintroducing this limited production roadster for classic and vintage car aficionados, as well as collectors. The J2X MkII is recognized by the Allard Registry, which has awarded our J2X MKII special serial numbers and a place in the Registry.
Allard Motor Works is committed to keeping this legend alive by releasing no more than 100 new J2Xs per year for the enjoyment of sports car lovers from around the world."
