Sec­ond Se­ries/new In­ter­na­tional/le Mans 1932-1934

VANTAGE - - The Specialist | Chicane -

Price re­duc­tions, made pos­si­ble by out-sourc­ing more com­po­nents, and con­tin­u­ing mo­tor­sport suc­cess at Le Mans and else­where helped lift sales of what are now known as the Sec­ond Se­ries cars. Par­tic­u­larly well re­ceived was the Le Mans model in­tro­duced in 1932. Its high-com­pres­sion en­gine pushed power up from 60 to 70bhp. Tour­ers and sa­loons were still built but were over­shad­owed by the sports cars – more than 100 ex­am­ples were sold of the Le Mans alone. There was also a (much rarer) four-seater ver­sion.
