Here are a list of magazine articles that are either directly about
the V8 or contain other interesting information:
||Earliest road test of a V8 ? The test car has 270HP and quad
Dellortos, but the pictures are of the earlier development car with a Holley.||
||An early road test of the 270HP JE Motors car H782 GEA.
Contains test data.||
||Another test of the 270HP car. Longer than the Autocar
report, but with less test data. Still has acceleration times.||
||Not specifically about the V8, but a comparison of 8
Westfields, all with different power plants. Apart from subjective
comments most of the cars were weighed as well. The V8 checked in at
1522lbs and had a 52/48 F/R split without a driver.||
||A twin test of the ZEi and the 330 SEiGHT. The V8 was tested
on sticky tyres and road tyres to try to beat the record 0-60. They achieved
some blistering times (0-100mph in 7 seconds!).||
||A test of H782 GEA when fitted with the 330HP TVR engine.
I don't find tests by this magazine very interesting as they are full
of hype and contain no test data.||
||Nothing about the V8, but an interesting article by Chris
Smith (Westfield MD) about racing a Westfield. Explains all the mods
for racing in the most cost effective order.||
||A road test of M501 MOJ - 330HP and lots of carbon fibre
inserts on the bright yellow bodywork. Usual sensationalist crap that
this newspaper format produces.||
||Some time in '94
||An article by Jeremy Clarkson entitled 'Go West, Young Man'.
Full of hype, but an entertaining read. You can find it in his book
'Clarkson on Cars'.||
||A brief test of the 330HP demonstrator with figures.||
||The Westfield SPa and the V8 were tested for this report.
Most of the text concerns the SPa, but there is a 1/2 page or so on the
V8. Includes a lot of test data (for the SPa) as is usual for Road & Track.||
||A one page article on the SEiGHT Euro. Subjective test with
outrageous figures from the factory. There is no way a 200HP V8 can do
0-60 in 4.3!
|The Daily Telegraph
||A couple of articles - one about the new SEiGHT Euro and one on
the GT3 racer that was campaigned in the Privilege Insurance race series.||
||Article that gives the development story of the V8, from
the first factory car through to the type approved Euro. Quite interesting,
has a few inaccuracies.||
||This is a 3 page article in an Australian magazine. All
subjective stuff, but an entertaining read.
||Report on the SEiGHT EURO and the 1800 Speedsport.
||Report on a SEiGHT fitted with a TVR Giffith 500 engine.
