This Tiger HS6 is a tribute to the Lotus MkVI of the mid‑1950s, Colin Chapman's first production vehicle. It was factory‑built by Tiger Racing near Peterborough, who first registered it for a SVA/IVA in May 2011. It was bought as new by the current owner less than a week later. Circuit Motor Bodies then fabricated additional aluminium work (nose cone and front wheel guards).

The basis for the car is a 1967 Triumph Spitfire, with its engine and base parts all forming part of the Tiger. Its registration number, NEG 262E, was changed to 100 UXA in April 2016 to complement its 1950s' appearance. The vendor believes that this could well be the best example of its marque and, with its additional rear‑mounted oak case rack, it would 'make a great weekend trip/show car'. It was driven to the Classic Le Mans event in France in 2014.

The odometer reads 10,164 miles while the current MoT certificate is valid until 13 August 2022. There has only been one private owner with the first being Tiger Racing itself.

The history file includes the V5C, current MoT certificate, and all other ones back to its first in 2012 - which help confirm the low mileage as genuine. The stack of bills include one for the conversion of the engine to unleaded fuel in 2014 plus the original bill of sale, for £15,594, along with receipts for improvements and upgrades such as a high torque starter motor, aluminium radiator and chrome fittings - an insurance valuation document summarises all the modifications. The Tiger also benefits from dual braking and gas shocks, with recent new tyres. Also in the folder are pictures of the construction, along with shots of original Lotus MkVIs for comparison.

The useful accessories and spares that come with the car include the tonneau cover, oak luggage rack, stubby screwdriver/10mm socket (for turning Dzus fixings/tightening u-bolts to oak rack), car jack plus wheel brace and mallet for wheel spinners, warning triangle, Triumph Spitfire owner's workshop manual, and template for aero screens. A box of unused items includes an electronic ignition conversion set, with instructions, timing chain replacement set, spare 12v fuel pump, various gaskets, points and condenser, SU carburettor butterfly inlets etc (not used from reconditioning kit), thermostat and various fuses. Used parts include an original Triumph Bakelite gear knob, original aluminium fuel filler stem and Tiger 'Super Six' nose cone badge.
