DAVRIAN IMP

2-door 2-seater sports coupé.

Designed and built by Adrian Evans, the Davrian used Rootes Imp powder pack and rear suspension in a glass-fibre monocoque. Like the Imp, engine and transmission were at the tail, but the light weight gave acceptable road holding. 200 built by 1972. Firm moved from London to Dyfed, Wales, in the mid-seventies, and still build this basic car, re-engined with Ford units, as Darrian. Also in the seventies, some Davarians with Mini Cooper/VW engine and transmission packs.
