Profile

The Strathcarron SC-5A is the latest in a modern trend of using a powerful road bike engine in a lightweight open sports car. The donor in this case is a 1200cc Triumph, capable of 125bhp in the 550kg SC-5A. Drive is transferred through a 6-speed sequential gearbox to make the most out of the available 10,000rpm plus, most of which is needed before the Strathcarron really starts to move.

An extremely basic cabin makes even it's rivals from Lotus and Caterham seem luxurious, and at nearly 23,000 the Strathcarron seems overpriced considering it's performance and the quality of the opposition. Unfortunately, Strathcarron folded in 2001 putting a sad end to the SC-5A.
