“For those who recognise merit in a car.”
Exhaustive testing and competition on the Continent have proved beyond question the superiority of the Frazer Nash — B.M.W., and its overwhelming success under conditions where other cars fail.
While it is conventional in so far as its transmission system, it is markedly in advance of other cars where chassis design and suspension are concerned.
“The Autocar,” after prolonged tests of both open and closed models, said they “showed remarkable stability with an entire absence of sidesway even under violent cornering, and extraordinary safety on wet treacherous surfaces,” adding, ” it is a car with a remarkable capacity for making a very fine average . . . because of the acceleration and cornering abilities. The comfort of riding is exceptional . . . and really bad surfaces can be taken fast without shock in an extraordinary manner.”
It is, in our opinion, without equal where other cars of its type and its class are concerned. The engine is absolutely quiet, extremely smooth and flexible ; it has a refined, yet lively, top gear performance ; perfect steering (high-geared and positive but very light), while the car definitely possesses ‘large car’ comfort, an attribute which other light cars sadly lack.
The i-litre 6-cylinder saloon costs £35°, completely equipped. The Frazer Nash—B.M.W. is a unique proposition—we believe if you try the car you will agree with us that it is the finest light car on the market, and it is worth trying if only to realise its extraordinary safety and superlative, even uncanny, road-holding qualities.
