Seldom has the history of any motorcar been so short and exciting as are the collective episodes and happy memories of the Sunbeam Tiger. Produced by the Rootes Group in Britain from1964 to 1967, the Tiger remains an important part of the life of everyone who touched it.

Historic pictures of Tigers built, and of Tigers planned but never to see the light of day. Here's what Ian Garrad and Carroll Shelby had to say about this delightful British vehicle.
