18 January 2005

Westfield landed its latest blow in the rapidly-developing lightweight sports car war at Autosport International. That came in the form of the new Sport 2000 S – a £250bhp, £33,000, front-engined two-seater which features the first full overhaul of Westfield’s tried-and-tested chassis for 15 years.

The new car runs an aluminium Ford Duratec inline four-cylinder powerplant which is now bolted directly to the car’s structure rather than suspended inside it on pedestal rubber mountings as before. It is mated with a competition six-speed sequential gearbox, and both electronic traction and launch control are included on its option list.

The Sport 2000 S costs £32,950 fully assembled, or £29,950 in kit form.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
