Autotrivia Quiz

Sunbeam Tiger.
Sunbeam Tiger.

Last week I asked what sports car lost its engine because the name was sold to another company. An easy one, It was the Sunbeam Alpine with the Ford V8 engine. A sort of copycat idea inspired by the Ford Cobra. Unfortunately, Sunbeam was bought out by the Chrysler Group who said they couldn’t sell cars with the engine coming from Ford, one of their competitors. Interestingly, the name Sunbeam Tiger was first used in a V12 Sunbeam in the 1920’s which topped 240 km/h to get the world Land Speed record.

So to this week. What car would Jay Leno, Paul Newman, Weird Al Jankovic and Elvis Presley share?
