ASTON MARTIN 2-LITRE SPEED MODEL

2-seater sports.

Built for cancelled '36 Le Mans, essentially an enlarged 11/2-litre, still with Scintilla Vertex magneto, dry-sump lubrication, and four-speed crash 'box, though frame is stiffened and brakes are now hydraulic. BMW 328 performance plus 110mph, but murderously expensive and it didn't sell. Straight bevel back ends on prototypes, spiral bevel on production cars.
