Between 1932 and 1958, the company produced 1900 cars, which were typically fitted with big V8 engines. Among them was the Type P saloon that won the 1952 Monte Carlo Rally in the hands of Sydney Allard.
The J2 two-seater finished third at Le Mans in 1950, and had success in American road racing.
Typically fitted with large, powerful engines, It was followed by the J2X and then the JR, of which only seven originals were made.
“As a family we have been passionate in reviving and continuing the legacy of what Sydney Allard created over eight decades ago,” said Lloyd Allard, as he spoke about his family’s involvement in the project.
“Since we’re all passionate drivers, engineers and archivists, it’s been important to stay true to our roots and passion.
“We see this car as a tribute and we’d love to see the JR continuation model car follow in the footsteps of my grandfather’s legacy and get back to Le Mans. Likewise, it would be a pleasure to see our creation on the historic and competition car circuit.”
