A Kit Car is an motor vehicle that is assembled from a set of parts that a manufacturer sells and the buyer then either assembles into a car themselves, or retains a third party to do part or all of the work on their behalf. Usually, many of the major mechanical systems such as the engine and transmission are sourced from donor vehicles or purchased from other suppliers.

Kit Cars vary in completeness ranging from as little as a book of plans to a complete set with all components included. Because they are so unique, when it comes to insurance make sure you use a specialist broker
