Motor Sport; Sports Models for 1931
An entirely new sports model has been added to the Invicta programme. This has a 4½-litre engine similar to the standard type. The car is of exceptionally low build, the highest point of the body being but 3ft. 3ins. from the ground. The chassis frame is upswept in front, and underslung at the rear, and the whole is heavily cross-braced. A 4-seater "Le Mans" type body is fitted, and a large square-shaped tank of 18-gallons capacity is placed at the rear. An example of this new car will be at the forthcoming Show.
