Vauxhall Motors, Ltd, of 174-r82, Great Portland Street, London, W.’, are showing a fine example of the famous Vauxhall Wensum, and it is very improbable indeed that any visitor to the Show with any inclination whatever towards sporting cars will go out again without having looked over this car. The name Wensum is an indication of the typi, of body, thus following out
the usual Vauxhall practice, and this type is supplementary to the Velox, which formerly was the principal sports body. The Wensum is purely a sporting body, which is intended to convey, by its design, a vivid impression of power and speed. A Vauxhall Wensum
won the first prize in its class in the recent Boulogne Concours d’Elegance.
Those who are not acquainted with the details of the chassis of this well known sporting car may be interested to learn that it has a four-cylindered engine, of 98 mm. and 140 mm. bore and stroke, with overhead valves, and capable of developing ’12 h.p. The braking equipment includes the Vauxhall four-wheel system and independent rear brakes. The Velox sells for £1,150, and the Wensum, for f,1,300. Both models are designed to accommodate four passengers.
