ALTA 1½-LITRE/2-LITRE

2-seater sports.

Base specifications as for 9HP, only lots more power, up to 160bhp if you specified the blown 2-litre unit. These cars weighed barely 1600lbs, giving 120mph and 0-60 in 7secs. Rounded, sloping grilles not unlike an early post-war Allard's, cycle-type wings, vestigial road equipment. Four still exist.
