Main information

Comp Safari / Rally Raid


Bowler Wildcat 200

Up for sale here is my 2001 Bowler Wildcat 200.

This car is purpose built onto a space frame to compete in the likes of comp safari, hill rallies, rally raid, dakar, toutes terrain, NORC, AWDC, SCCC, BCCC, SASLRC etc...

Under the bonnet is a 5.2 John Eales V8, believe me when I say this thing shifts and sounds awesome.

The car had been stood for a while until I purchased it in early 2014. The previous owner enjoyed spending money on the car but left it parked in his garage! He had recent bills from QT services totalling over 20k on various upgrades he had done to the car at QT headquarters. The bulk of the money was spent chassis strengthening / wrapping, fitting the latest type QT tubular radius arms, altering the suspension turrets to the current spec & 4x new Donerre shock absorbers fitting.

In the short time I’ve owned the car it has been maintained meticulously and has had an absolute fortune thrown at it. This has been spent on:
Full re-spray in Land Rover, Metallic, Santorini Black
Custom made stainless steel front bumper, steering guard, tailgate handle & side bars

Battery cut off switch
Serpentine belt
Throttle cable

2x Coil packs
Various wheel arches
Spare Front wing

This is an amazing, iconic car that is highly competitive even in the hands of a novice like myself – current class leader in N.O.R.C. Results can be seen here: http://www.norc.org.uk/pages/results-2015

I am still competing with the car so it will be mechanically sound but will have the usual battle scars you would expect of a race car.

It was used as a wedding car in July and had an MOT at this point although it is currently SORN.

I’m not in any rush to sell it so please, please...no dreamers, timewasters or stupid offers...I’ll just carry on racing it.

We regularly export vehicles through our business so I am able to arrange container loading & worldwide shipping if the need arises.
