Fernandesz, Letourneur, Labourdette, Figoni, Graber, Nutting... you name 'em, they'll have bodies this one and it'll be beautiful. Advertised 100mph depends on weight and axle ratio, but on 145bhp and a shortish (122 or 130ins) wheelbase it should be within reach. Chassis 31/2ins lower than standard, and one-shot lubrication's part of the package. Quadruple SU-carburettor conversion listed in Britain. New cars still being sold off as late as 1935.
