Classic looks and rapid performance speak for itself, please listen to what our customers have said regarding their 'Build' of Mk1 & Mk2's -
  • "The Cabrio's electric side windows, proper heating and demisting facility, plus an excellent soft top were all vital deciding factors, along with the fact that it is a one donor kit car."
  • "As the build progressed, never did I once find myself regretting my choice."
  • "With all that excellent weather gear and the Cabrio's other practical features, the car gets used as often as possible."

Of course the motoring press have also raved about the earlier Cabrio's, please read on -

  •  "This car really does handle like a circuit racer and yet, rides like a grand tourer." 
  • Even more beautiful with two tone paintwork. "I can testify to the effectiveness of the hood, no draughts or undue noise. Also with the heater on full, the windows up and the hood folded neatly away, the pool of warm air trapped in the cockpit keeps cold days at bay."
  • "Chassis responses are instantaneous - acceleration is fierce; roadholding is pure sports car, all done in genuine comfort."
  • "A classic with zero scuttle shake - a hallmark of all Marlin kits."
  • "What can I say - this Cabrio kit is superb in every detail. As always, the quality of 
    the Marlin kits never fail to impress me."

Javelin aspire to the same high standards with the new Mk3 Cabrio, 
now using all BMW running gear.

Friendly efficient service and product excellence is paramount to Javelin's business ethic!
