Real High-Performance. — The latest “Competition” model Allard, the J-type two-seater with “oversize” 4.3-litre V8 Mercury engine and light-alloy two-seater body, on a tubular framework, which conforms to sports-car race regulations. The chassis is seen in the picture alongside and you should make a careful inspection of this new J-type Allard on Stand 132.

High Speed For Three. — The 2 1/2-litre Nuffield Products Riley is here seen in its latest guise, that of a side-by-side three-seater roadster, priced at £958. exclusive of p.t. The high-efficiency four-cylinder Riley engine inclined o.h.v. actuated from high-set camshafts, results in a maximum speed exceeding 90 m.p.h., in spite of the comfortable, weatherproof bodywork. The Riley exhibits occupy Stand 174.

Quality, Performance and Refinement on 2 Litres. — The Type 401 Bristol saloon is one of Britain’s really great cars, fast, refined and very fully equipped. Its performance is such that,wilh a 2-litre six-cylinder engine, it is more than a match for many cars of more them twice this engine capacity, while its ruggedness was proved when it came home first of all the British cars in the Monte Carlo Rally. A full range of Bristols, by the famous aeroplane company at Filton, will repay inspection on Stand 139.

Efficiency With Simplicity. — The J-type Allard chassis, which offers reliability and very high performance with refined running and the owner of which can avail himself of the world-wide Ford servicing facilities. Front suspension is by a divided axle and exposed coil springs, the engine is a bored-out, long-stroke V8 Mercury, the remote gearbox control will be noted, also the very low build, while a de Dion back axle reduces wheelspin and ensures leech-like road-holding.

Indianapolis Hero. — The compact, powerful Austin A90 “Atlantic” sports saloon, seen here with its electrically-operated hood erect. Its 2.2-litre engine develops 88 b.h.p., so that very high performance is achieved, while one of these cars ran for 11,875 miles at Indianapolis at over 70 m.p.h. This and a comprehensive range of Austin models are on view on Stand 145.

Exciting New Britisher. — Every high-performonce car enthusiast will want to see the new E.R.A.-Javelin on, Stand 151. With an E.R.A.-built, Eberhorst-designed. 7 ft. 9 in.-wheeIbase tubular chassis housing the well-known, Javelin flat-four engine and using that car’s efficient torsional suspension system. the E.R.A.-Javelin should offer distinctly brisk performance with reasonable economy of operation. The coupe body shown is merely a prototype, which can be seen at Jowett’s West End showroom, while a chassis is on show at Earls Court.
