After an absence of 70 years, the Invicta name could be set to return to racing following the launch of the S1 sportscar at the Motor Show in October.
Designed and built in secret, the 4.6-litre S1 is a £70,000 GT car in the true sense of grand touring, and has been created with racing firmly in mind.
Last produced in the early 1930s, the Invicta marque was successful in both racing and rallying (Donald Healey won the 1931 Monte Carlo Rally in a 4.5-litre model) and it is this heritage which company owner Michael Bristow is eager to recreate with the new 320bhp model.
“The S1 can very easily be turned into a race car. It has been designed with competition in mind and embodies the values and spirit of the pre-war cars.”
