- This 1934 Ariel sprint special was created by the current vendor
- He has campaigned it on many sprints and has recorded a staggering standing quarter mile at 14.4 seconds and a speed of 102 MPH
- The engine is based on a 500cc OHV red hunter but is fitted with complete Jawa internals. Currently running on methanol
