Last week I asked what car was this? Built 1924, 1100 cc dohc engine developing 130 bhp at 6,000 RPM, top speed recorded at Brooklands being 128 MPH. There were only 40 of these cars made (so it’s not a Bugatti). It was the Amilcar, very similar to the Bugatti, and these days, with such limited production, very rare.
So to this week. Another ‘What car is this?’ V12, OHV engine, 9.4 liters, brake servo driven off the gearbox, 5.3 meters long. An 11 liter option which gave the car a top speed of 115 mph. Hint: Pre-war!
