TRIUMPH 12-6 SCORPION

Coachbuilt saloon, de luxe coachbuilt saloon, 2/4-seater tourer, coupé.

Playing the Wolseley Hornet game - take your four-cylinder chassis, graft on a couple of extra cylinders and lengthen the frame without any serious reinforcement. Add some flashy styling and you have a runabout for madame. It started off with three speeds, quarter elliptics at the rear, friction dampers and 863/4ins wheelbase - by its demise there were four speeds, hydraulic dampers, semi-elliptics and a 921/4 wheelbase. Still pretty horrid, though.
