ALVIS SPEED 20 SA

Sports tourer, drophead coupé, sports saloon, numerous customs.

Engine as for Silver Eagle 20, but giving 87bhp and wedded to a unit 'box with central change. Massive chassis, heavy controls and powerful mechanical brakes, but tourers (Cross & Ellis or VDP) weigh in at only 25cwt, and 90mph is possible. Handier than the later more sophisticated ifs versions.
