INVICTA BLACK PRINCE

Saloon, drophead coupè, various specials.

Twin overhead camshafts to all-alloy engine, 12 sparking plugs, three carburettors, twin electric umps, a 24-volt start/dynamo, built-in electrically-operated jacks, all-independent torsion-bar springing, and an infinitely variable 'hydro-kinetic turbo transmitter' which reputedly didn't like going into reverse. Superbly elegant, but much too heavy and complex to succeed. Most survivors have been converted to four-speed synchromesh, usually ex-Jaguar.
