It was also necessary to submit a chassis for testing to the EC Directive, Regulation 14, for seat belt anchorages, having a pull test to a load of three tons. The Aristocat passed first time on the Rig at Manchester Metropolitan University, organised by STATUS.
Designed to suit various budgets, the Aristocat can be built using around 80 % of the components from the donor Jaguar, even including such items as the seats and dashboard plus instruments, thus helping to reduce build costs. Additionally, there are various kit options, including three different windscreen options all varying in cost. Weather gear and chrome work can also be purchased.
