Price announced for TV star Ant Antstead’s Tipo184 - the world’s most cost effective way to feel like Fangio

03.03.2021: • Tipo184 is the world’s most cost-effective way into classic race car ownership • Conceived by TV star Ant Anstead and uses Mazda MX-5/Miata mechanicals • Single-make race series for Tipo184 starts this year

•    Tipo184 is the world’s most cost-effective way into classic race car ownership

•    Conceived by TV star Ant Anstead and uses Mazda MX-5/Miata mechanicals

•    Single-make race series for Tipo184 starts this year



The innovative Tipo184 will be one of the world’s most cost-effective ways into classic race car ownership, it has been announced. Prices for the beautiful self-build kits, which are based on economical and easy-to-source Mazda MX-5 running gear, have been set at just £16,450.



Brainchild of TV personality Ant Anstead and experts at Dowsetts Classic Cars, the Motorsport UK-compliant Tipo184 evokes the Alfa Romeo 158, driven by Juan Manuel Fangio in the 1950s, widely regarded as one of the most successful race cars of all time.



Ant Anstead:
“I was so inspired by the Alfa 158 that I made my own version of it from scratch. It’s so satisfying building and then driving your own beautiful car that I wanted to give other enthusiasts the chance to get into their garages and workshops, open up the toolbox and do the same.



It’s been a tough time for plenty of people in the past year, so I’d also underline how good for your mental wellbeing it is to make something as beautiful as the Tipo184 from scratch.


“It’s also important that it was extremely affordable. That’s why we’ve kept the cost of the kit to the minimum and it’s based on easy-to-source, affordable MX-5/Miata components.



“Once it’s built, you have a car that will let you feel the sensations that Fangio would have experienced - balancing the car delicately in a four-wheel drift as you explore the limits of grip. It’s a car that will allow you to enjoy close racing with identical cars in a one-make series, or simply the thrill of driving it down a winding country road on a summer’s day.”


Tipo184 owners will be able to take part in a new race series, run in partnership with the British Racing & Sports Car Club (BRSCC). Billed as one of the most affordable single seater race series in the world, the series will start as a UK-based set of track days, culminating in a demo-race at Cadwell Park on the weekend of 28th/29th August.



The planned race format for 2022 will consist of a 15-minute qualifying session followed by two 15-minute races at major circuits across the UK. Plans are also in progress for race series in Europe and the US.



The Tipo184 starter kit can be purchased directly at www.tipo184.com and is available globally, with customers in the US and Europe now able to take advantage of heavily reduced shipping costs because of new collaborations with local chassis manufacturers. Limited build slots for 2021 are still available.
