DARRACQ 3-LITRE

2-door saloon, 4-door saloon, limousine.

The standard choice of two- and four-door saloons was extended to include a limousine on the 11ft 4ins chassis for this and the 4-litre. In sports saloon form the 3-litre would manage about 85mph, and although this was fast for the time you really needed to fork out the extra £150-odd for the 4-litre to make sure you stayed ahead of the big Vauxhalls and Humbers on the straight - of course, the Darraqs would leave them wallowing on the corners.
