EG. Autokraft are renowned specialists in the world of replicas. Their productions are considered to be one of the most accurate. The dimensions of the evocation are exact and allow genuine parts to be used if required, although most used Jaguar V12 engines and running gear. The team behind these models was headed up by Emilio Garcia and Peter Jacobs. The bodies being made by Peter, whose pedigree includes designing the RS200 Ford rally car and the GTD, a very well made Ford GT40 replica. Ownership of an Autokraft replica has been enhanced by its thriving international owner's club where help completing and improving the cars can be sought.
This example presents extremely well in the classic red with beige Connolly leather seats, Wilton carpets and a Nardi steering wheel. HKH 862L retains the identity and the 5.3 litre, V12 engine and automatic gearbox of its Jaguar XJ12 donor car. A comprehensive recommissioning took place in 2013. At that time, special attention was paid to the cars indicators, door rubbers, pop-up headlamps and instruments. The extensive work undertaken at this time included the fitting of a reconditioned power steering rack, the changing of both the gearbox and engine oil, a new battery, radiator and double-lined mohair hood. This Spider is described by the vendor as being 'tremendous fun to drive' and it is easy to see why. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate, this usable Evocation is guaranteed to turn heads.
