“The Ideal Car for the job !
—the Frazer Nash behaved marvellously, and absolutely shot up all the hills. On Ibberton, I got into second, and climbed the last part of the hill at colossal speed ‘ . . . extracts from a new owner’s letter, who took his Frazer Nash through the Exeter.
There is undoubtedly something peculiarly satisfying to a driver (whatever carping critics may say) in handling a car with unlimited power and capable of flattening out stiff trials hills.
With its powerful brakes, efficient transmission with direct and silent drive on all gears and probably the easiest and most fascinating gear change in the world, the Frazer Nash is (as ‘The MOTOR” says) – ‘ cheap at the price’ and has a performance which it is almost impossible to equal except by spending very much more money. Responsive to the slightest touch, always under complete control and possessed of an acceleration which is as thrilling as it is rapid, this car is such as will satisfy the most fastidious and experienced motorist.”
Of all cars tested by “The AUTOCAR ” during 1931, the non-supercharged I i-litre Frazer Nash had the finest acceleration figures, irrespective of horse-power or price, and a speed of 87.38 m.p.h. over the timed half-mile (with a standard top gear ratio of 3.8 to I).
Built throughout to an owner’s personal requirements, the new Frazer Nash is characteristically English in its individuality as compared with the average mass-production car of to-day. Depreciation is negligible, while it has the highest secondhand value of any sports car on the market—facts worthy of serious consideration, and too often neglected by the purchaser of a new car.
