I would like to know just who owns the designs and, possibly less importantly, the tooling for their products. I have tried some more to find out what happened, but have drawn a blank, If the company was liquidated, and there is some evidence to suggest that, the liquidator is obliged to sell everything of value to the highest bidder. It does seem that someone, somewhere owns the rights to the twin cam head and the 6 speed box. Maybe that party wants to just sit on them and do nothing, but there must still be money to be made.

 

There was some more information in link below on the Mk1 forum a couple of years back:-

Jack Knight Twin Cam Heads

Maybe BMW (or whoever came after them) bought up all that stuff and just shoved it in a cupboard.

 

Not because they ever wanted to produce it, just because they didn't want those products on the market place?

I remember back in 96 pricing up a 6 speed box for a hillclimb car. no change from about 7k (pounds sterling).
