2012 Wildcat 300STR


(from Wildcat Press Release)  Born with the offroad pedigree of the Wildcat comes the new 300STR. Designed not only to treat the roughest terrain with contempt but also to have the poise of a sports coupé, the Wildcat 300STR is in a league of its own. A crossover vehicle to beat all crossover vehicles.

The 300STR can be equipped with such creature comforts as air conditioning and even a space to take your golf clubs.

When the Wildcat was tested by Richard Hammond and the 'Stig' on the Top Gear, the car’s adaptability really shone through and following a period of intense R & D, this new model offers both on and off road performance. Giving the driver a unique opportunity to own a car that is at home in the City of London as it is in the deserts of Morocco.

Based around a lightweight tubular chassis, the 300STR encompasses all of the racing heritage that the Wildcat possesses to provide the discerning driver with a positive road driving experience. The rigidity of the space-frame construction gives a taught positive feel to the driver.

The body is manufactured from composite fibre glass giving it a highly durable corrosion resistant finish in a wide choice of colours with wildcat graphics pack.

The 300STR series car is powered by a 4.0 litre Rover V8 developing over 270 BHP, its smooth power delivery and robust design matching the Wildcat’s characteristics perfectly.

The transmission is a five speed synchromesh gearbox with a two speed transfer box, the system providing both smooth road performance and extreme offroad performance.

The 300STR is equipped with 300mm long travel remote reservoir dampers with specially wound coil springs designed to match. This gives the car poise and presence on the road whilst being able to absorb really tough terrain offroad.

Steering is power assisted with a chassis mounted steering damper fitted to absorb any steering forces fed back from the roughest terrain.

Stopping is dealt with using a powerful servo assisted braking system coupled to large disc brakes front and rear.

The interior is fitted out with a wipe-clean sound deadening headliner and side panels, cosseting the driver in this extreme machine. The carbon style dash top adds style to the interior, complemented by the purpose built SPA analogue dash system, giving the driver all the key information he needs whilst at the wheel of this unique car. The heated windscreen and two speed powerful wipers keep the view of the road even in the worst conditions. Air conditioning is available as an option.
