Sir,

A further distinction omitted by Mr. Alan K. Clerk in his comparison in your August issue of the 2-litre Frazer-Nash with a 3i-litre car of approximately half the price, is that the former appears to be relatively unembarrassed when the road deviates from the straight.

While this observation may not apply in regard to such vehicles as have a “C’ in their name, will these be available at half the price of the Frazer-Nash and can it be said that they afford the “adequate comfort and protection” attributed to the type without the suffix ?

A comparison, to the detriment of the smaller-engined vehicle, of ears of such dissimilar engine capacity, is of little value, but it would be of interest to be informed in what respects the power unit designed by the “clever Germans in 1986” should be regarded as obsolete. Does your correspondent claim any outstanding novelty in the design of the 3i-litre engine, good as it undoubtedly is ? Has it not, in fact, much in common with earlier power units, including that of a sporting motor car designed in Wolverhampton by some clever Englishmen (with perhaps a little French inspiration) long before “finicky little airfield circuits” were thought of ? I am, Yours, etc.,

Chelmsford. C. W. J. BRovviv. * * *
