Vehicle Description

As a top retailer of Camaros, Corvettes, Mustangs and MoPars, RK Motors Charlotte makes it easy for you to find a cool version of the usual suspects. With that in mind, we're also the outfit that strives to bring our clients a variety of unique and well-done offerings that exist on either the fringes of a marque or the fringes of the hobby. On that note, our latest one-of-a-kind classic is this sweet Sunbeam Tiger: a professionally restored hot rod that features a decidedly European flavor.

Best known as the ride of choice for agent Maxwell Smart, the Carroll Shelby-developed Sunbeam Tiger has made an art of confidently lurking in the shadow of 'Ol Shel's juggernaut Cobra. It's the car for those who consistently evade notoriety and value prime exclusivity over all-out ego. The product of a three-year rotisserie restoration, this Tiger backs 260 cubic inches of all-American V8 with nimble athletics, a sporty 4-speed and the unparalleled glory of open-air driving. And if you're a discerning enthusiast who's looking for old school fun wrapped in timeless style, it's a Smart choice for your next classic!
