The Carlton Carrera is a kit car that was produced between 1985 and the mid-1990s.
Originally the Carrera was based on Ford Cortina mechanicals, and used the Ford engine range up to the V6. Carlton made some changes and developed the Carrera later to take a Jaguar running gear and the capability to accept the Rover V8 and even the Jaguar V12.
The Carrera had a ladder frame chassis with a tough fibreglass body. It made use of the Cortina dash to give it a production quality feel inside (even if it was from the 70s and 80s). The Carrera was available as a 2+2, full 4 seater or a cabriolet.
The kit was fairly popular back in its day, selling over one hundred during its production run.
