I do not feel your article gives credit to the performance of the Alvis 4.3-litre which you state took 15.3 seconds to accelerate from 0-60 m.p.h., and I give below figures in my possession:
Four-seater sports tourer (34 3/4 cwt.):
1937: 13.8 sec. (maker’s specification tables).
1938: 11.9 sec. (Autocar road test).
1939: 11.3 sec. (Motor road test).
Flying quarter-mile 105 m.p.h.
Saloon (39 3/4 cwt.):
1938: 9 sec. from 0-50 m.p.h. (Motor road test).
Maximum 100.56 m.p.h.
I believe I am correct in saying that the Alvis 4.3-litre saloon was the fastest standard saloon with the smallest engine made in this country before the war.
President, Alvis OC.
