Musician and TV personality Jools Holland has asked Chop Shop to work their modified car magic and make him a custom recreation of the classic Jet 1, a Rover Car Company gas turbine concept car, circa 1950, that achieved a record breaking 152mph.
Will Leepu's artistic integrity survive working to such a strict design brief? And can the team cope with grafting together a 50-year-old Rover 80 body shell and chassis, 60-year-old body Rover 75 body panels, with a 30-year-old Jaguar XJ6 4.2 litre engine and suspension?
Jools has certainly never seen tuning like this before!
This car is proving to be Chop Shop's greatest design and engineering challenge to date, and with a collective age of 140 years, this custom classic is even older than Bernie!
