The Appeal

The Southern Roadcraft SRV12 offers a fantastic alternative for those who admire the  classic lines and spirit of the Ferrari 365 Daytona and want a fantastic driving experience  without the price tag. It's striking how much the SRV12 looks like the Daytona, from its  elongated front end to that distinctive back end. Finished in red, the car emanates cool that  clearly draws inspiration from its Italian counterpart.  

When it comes to driving the SRV12, there's a unique pleasure to be found. Starting the 5,343cc Jaguar V12 engine, you're greeted with a satisfying roar. The car moves with a 
blend of power and refinement, giving you a driving experience that is both engaging and  comfortable and far above that of many other kit cars. The custom chassis offers good  handling for a vehicle of this size, making it more than capable on twisty roads as well as  straight stretches. And while the SRV12 may not be the real Daytona, it commands its own  form of attention. 

The mileage is low, which bodes well for its mechanical condition and it’s clearly been kept  indoors. All these factors contribute to the SRV12 being not just a car to admire in your  garage, but one to actually drive and enjoy. It offers a balanced blend of aesthetic appeal  and real-world usability, making it a noteworthy option for anyone interested in classic car  ownership with aloof the style of a Daytona.

When you step inside the Southern Roadcraft SRV12, it's like entering a time capsule that  takes you back to the golden age of grand touring. The black and red leather seats offer a  superb level of comfort and plenty of support for more spirited driving.

 There's something  incredibly satisfying about the tactile feedback of the classic switches and knobs; they click  and turn with a mechanical sureness that's missing from more modern, touchscreen-centric  interiors. Whilst many are purely aesthetic to recreate the look of the Daytona it's still very  much an interface that rewards a driver's touch, adding an additional layer of connection  between you and the car. 

Driving the SRV12 is not just about getting from point A to point B; it's an intimate  experience that engages all your senses. With the top down and the sound of the big Jaguar  V12 in your ears it doesn’t matter what the SRV12 was designed to look like, it’s a superb  car in its own right.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.
