ATALANTA 4.3-LITRE

2-seater sports, 2-door saloon, drophead coupé.

Hairy Anglo-American with 112bhp Lincoln-Zephyr engine and three-speed synchro 'box (though not its horrid dashboard shift), in the usual Atalanta chassis with suspension and brakes as the fours. Four-seater bodies had 112ins wheelbase, acceleration times interesting, and 17/20mpg possible. Abbott did the Aston Martin-like bodies: Lalique mascots were optional on Atalantas.
