New British Sportscar Breaks Cover

The Beira – from Norfolk-based company Breckland - is a hand-built, two-seat roadster.

It’s powered by a General Motors (GM) 6-litre LS2 V8 engine, more commonly found in Corvette and Pontiac GTO models, and also has a GM chassis.

The Beira is designed to run on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as well as petrol, which the manufacturers say will make the car easier on the pocket.

Running costs

Breckland director Mike Rawlings said: ‘We wanted to showcase Breckland’s design and engineering capabilities and produce an exciting driver’s car, with excellent handling dynamics, terrific performance and great looks.

‘We also looked seriously at environmental concerns and, as a result, the Beira is designed to run on Liquefied Petroleum Gas as well as petrol.

‘This not only helps to reduce running costs and emissions, but also means Beira is capable of a range of some 700 miles between refuelling stops - that’s the equivalent of travelling non-stop from the north to the south coast of France.’

Custom-built interior

The Beira features a custom-built interior, including electric windows, air conditioning and airbags in the steering wheel and passenger dash.

The central instrument cluster also includes a 7 inch TFT colour-touch screen, DVD player, direct iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, and an in-built 30Gb hard disk drive (HDD) navigation system with full European mapping.

The car will be available from November. The on-the-road price has yet to confirmed but is expected to be in the region of £55,000.
