MARENDAZ 13/70, 13/100

2-seater, 4-seater, sportsman's coupé.

First product from the reformed company, the 13/70 is a Continental-engined car, with coil ignition, outside exhaust, 12 gallon tank, 116ins wheelbase and good for 75mph, with 30mpg as well. It's still got cantilever rear springs and Marendaz's fully-floating rear axle (perfect for ripping crown wheel and pinions apart), plus hydraulic brakes with a 2:1 reduction on the pedal. The 13/100 was the blown version; whether any were made is open to conjecture. Cars are still extremely elegant.
