Lucas P100 Range of Headlamps

Genius of the Lamp now fabricate a range of replica Lucas P100 R Headlamps.

The model shown is the Lucas P100 RX with stone guards, secured by 4 knurled nuts making it possible to use with or without when necessary. The headlamps are based on an exact replica of Lucas P100 R headlamps, but with a few mod cons. Some advantages of purchasing this range are:

  1. The lamps are fitted with halogen bulbs producing a much brighter illumination of roads and particularly good if driving at night or rallying.
  2. Double filament bulbs allow a 'Full' or 'Dipped' beam and therefore replaces the old type dipping mechanism.
  3. Headlamps will pass new MOT requirements.
  4. A new pattern lens that allows for a more direct beam of light for travelling at speed but also illuminating well the sides of the road.
  5. If the unexpected occurs, replacement parts are easily obtainable from 'Genius of the Lamp'.
  6. The lamps are a brand new build and so will last a lifetime - that's our guarantee!
