Dax Cars, a British sports car manufacturer founded in 1968 and headquartered in North Weald, Essex, England, has a remarkable history. Originally known as DJ Sportscars Int., the company began as a fibreglass moulding business and achieved a significant milestone by becoming the first British company to produce a kit-based replica of the AC 427 Cobra. On 15th of August 2017, John Kox assumed control of the Dax 427 production from the 427 Motor Company, formerly known as Dax Cars & DJ Sportscars Int.
One of Dax Cars' notable creations is the DAX GT40, a British sports car model inspired by the legendary American endurance racing car, the Ford GT40. DAX introduced the GT40 replica in the late 20th century, paying homage to the original GT40 that rose to prominence in the 1960s for its dominance in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. The DAX GT40 faithfully replicates the distinctive design and performance characteristics of the classic Ford GT40, featuring a mid-engine layout and aerodynamic bodywork that closely mirrors the original. Like its predecessor, the DAX version is renowned for its robust engine options, precise handling, and striking resemblance to the iconic racing car. Enthusiasts and collectors alike value the DAX GT40 for its ability to deliver a nostalgic driving experience reminiscent of the golden era of sports car racing, solidifying its status as a sought-after model among automotive aficionados.
Correctly registered as a Dax and presented in the iconic Gulf livery as seen on many GT40 evocations, this particular example was first registered on 1st of July, 2006. Having been in the hands of its first owner for 15 years, the car was acquired by the vendor in December 2021. ‘LG06 CKL’ benefits from a specification including 15’’ Halibrand alloys with faux aluminium spinners, a black interior with GT40 seats made by RCR, Black dashboard with ETB instruments, right-hand gear change, Titon pedals, a Mountney detachable steering when with GT40 centre, Luke Hannah seat belts and a 12v socket for convenience. Powered by a Rover V8 reworked by John Eales, with a JE102 cam, mated to a UN1 gearbox, the car also benefits from a Stainless Steel Bundle of Snakes exhaust system, as well as Spax adjustable coilovers, a large capacity aluminium radiator, twin fuel tanks and a cut-off switch.
With an MOT valid until 15th December, 2023 with no advisories, the car currently displays just 14,531 miles on the odometer and comes with a history file containing a large collection of invoices and receipts, previous MOT certificates, a wiring diagram and the current V5C document which displays 1 former keeper.
