At the start of 2020, I put out a video about a lost British sportscar called the Connaught Type-D, with the unique thing about it being that it had a tiny 2.0-litre supercharged V10 engine. We had so many people messaging us to rediscover the car after the company went under in 2004, so I set about trying to find the unique sportscar. And after some serious digging, I found it!

Here's Mike's original video:

  • What a unique piece of engineering and automotive history. Thanks for documenting this car before it got lost in time!

  • I designed this in 1997 while I was a Reliant with Tim. I have all sketches and digital models if you're interested.

  • I didn't know this one, thank you for the video!

    Maybe people were put of by the styling a bit. The front just doesn't scream "V10 sportscar". Having that said, still great engineering!

  • I would love them to investigate the Robert Jankel Tempest, I remember reading about this as a child and it sounded amazing

  • I think they were in Rugby to start with and then moved to South Wales. Visited them a couple of times and it looked really good but never materialised. I think they also designed a regenerative braking device that could be retro fitted to vans and got a contract with a supermarket and for whatever reason the car didnt move forward, shame. Looked better in the flesh than in the photos.
