Alvis to continue production of 1936 car!


Amazing news from Alvis that they are to reproduce the 1936 Alvis 4.1 Litre sports car. Time to save up the pennies!

Alvis, arguably one of the most innovative car manufacturers in the 1930s, is set to return to business in the 21st century with ownership of the brand name having been formally transferred to Red Triangle, which for the last 40 years has been providing parts and restoration services to Alvis owners and has also been the safe custodian of all the original designs, plans and complete historic record of the cars produced.

With the legal transfer of the Alvis car trademarks, Red Triangle has formed a new company called The Alvis Car Company Limited. There is evidence from the original Alvis company board minutes that seventy-seven of the chassis that were officially sanctioned for production were never fulfilled because car production had to be suspended in 1940.

The newly formed Alvis Car Company will announce details of a continuation series of these cars at Goodwood and will be displaying on their stand a brand new 4.3 Litre chassis and engine. These are the first steps towards the reintroduction of the famous Alvis 4.3 Litre model, 71 years after the last 4.3 Litre Alvis was produced.

The 4.3 Litre Alvis was the fastest non-supercharged production car of its day, and the continuation series will live up to that heritage. Manufactured from the original drawings, the 4.3 Litre Alvis in-line six cylinder engine will be faithful to the 1936 design, in maintaining all its period character and quality, yet by utilising modern technology it will be emission compliant. Moreover, by using modern materials, fuel injection and engine management, this powerplant will deliver even more horsepower.

  2. Is this the Alvis featured in the school scenes of the BBC dramatisation of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy?
