Found this on PistonHeads where the author admits his countrymen never tire of the tried and true roadster formula for which the U.K. is famous. The Aquila is the new old kid on the block and features equal parts old and new in its retro, flared-fender form. The car sits on a ladder frame chassis and is motivated by a standard Ford Zetec four-cylinder making 130 hp. It’s good for a 6.7 second trip to 60 and top speed of 120 mph. Optional engines include a straight six as well as a Rover V8. Prices have not yet been announced for the Aquila, although they should surface in time for the car’s on sale date in April.
