A 1930’s Classic Is Revived

The legendary Alvis 4.3 litre is back in production, according to the Telegraph website, complete with “engine management, hydraulic brakes and fuel injection”. One of the most innovative car manufacturers of the 1930’s is back in business, and judging by the new and improved model, Alvis are back with a vengeance.
Red Triangle, the well-established Alvis Service Company have decided that the first steps to rejuvenating the classic Alvis is to wait until the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month, when the marque plan to announce details of this unique project, which will see the re-introduction of the “famous Alvis 4.3 litre model, 71 years after the last 4.3 litre Alvis was produced”, according to Easier.com.
The Telegraph website has reported that anyone lucky enough to find an original Alvis model at auction would be looking to pay in the region of £400,000 – £450,000 for the elegant, open-top pre-war car. Red Triangle however plans to “produce new continuation models which will cost from around £170,000”.
Like most classics, this vintage motor has played its part in motoring history, with the 4.3 litre model taking the title of “fastest non-supercharged production car of its day, covering 0-60mph in around 11 seconds”, according to Easier.com, with the “continuation” series hopefully living up to this historic heritage.

According to Alan Stote, Red Triangle and Alvis Car Company proprietor, the re-birth of the Alvis model is “part of our overall business plan, which is to maintain service to existing Alvis owners but also to reintroduce selected authentic Alvis models in line with the vision of the Alvis Board all those years ago”.
With its original allure and modern enhancements, the Alvis will be faithful to its classic roots while welcoming modern technological improvements – meaning this vintage vehicle should prove just as big a hit in the present as it was in the past.
