The Ronart W152 was designed to specifically recreate the 1950s' era of the last of the great front-engined Formula 1 cars, albeit not a replica but a one-off design which, having been around for nearly 40 years now, is now regarded as a classic in its own right. Power for the cars came from Jaguar six-cylinder, V8 and V12 engines. This example uses a 1999 Jaguar XK8 as its basis, and utilises a 3996cc V8, but was registered in November 2014. Its V5C shows just one owner and its MoT is valid until June 2024. The odometer records 7609 miles. The vendor's husband, who has passed away, oversaw and got involved with the building of the car. Since he passed away in October last year, the car has been occasionally started but stored in a trailer until being driven to its recent MoT. It's reported that it was driving well when in regular use but will require some recommissioning due to the vehicle being unused.  

Accompanying the Ronart are its V5C, current MoT certificate, Ronart brochure, laminated information sheet and assorted invoices. There's also an unmounted altimeter as well.
