Top class sporting credentials. A class win at the 1949 Monte Carlo rally. Followed by another class win at the 24 hrs race at Spa.
Streamlined, ahead of its time styling (1947 remember). Many other cars still had mudguards and running boards. Capable of 80 mph long before we had motorways. Tough, plenty of ground clearance, beefy chassis. Perfect for rallying. 1st UK curved windscreen too.
Seating for six. Compact boxer four. All-independent torsion bar suspension.
It had a bit of a reliability issue, and was rapidly overtaken by major manufacturers.....bit of a shame.
