MINERVA AP 22-28CV

Saloon, coupé, drophead coupé, limousine, various customs.

Again, two chassis lengths, a 144ins version and a 130ins sports model with 15bhp extra, which averaged  50mph between Marseilles and Ostend in protoype form. The company's best seller here (£900 for a limo), and examples were owned by many crown princes throughout the world, including the Shah of Persia and the King of Siam. 65mph possible, first gear very low, beautifully made, as ever, but the market flagging badly by this time.
