The Broadbest Centaur was a kit car produced in the 1980s.

Broadbest were one of the early adopters of producing Lamborghini Countach replicas. The Centaur was introduced in a period where a few manufacturers came onto the market and offered kits resembling the Countach. It's not known how many Centaurs were finished as actually driveable cars. 

The Centaur was a one piece GRP body tub on top of a space frame chassis. The weight was claimed to be 1100kg although this is disputed. A big problem for these cars in the day was the panel fit, especially the doors. 

The Centaur used the Rover V8 for it's powerplant and the 5-speed gearbox and transaxle from a Renault 27.
