SPEC­I­FI­CA­TION En­gine 1495cc, in-line 4 Power 85bhp Torque n/a 0-60mph n/a Top speed 100mph Most revered of all the early As­tons, the Ul­ster was named in cel­e­bra­tion of the Works rac­ers’ suc­cess in the 1934 Tourist Tro­phy and was ef­fec­tively a replica of those fac­tory cars. With power now up to 85bhp from the lat­est ver­sion of the 1.5-litre ohc four, it was enough for As­ton to guar­an­tee a 100mph top speed. These cars are dis­tin­guished by their sleek body and boat-shaped tail, which houses a hor­i­zon­tally mounted spare wheel. Twenty-one Ul­sters were built, all of which are be­lieved to have sur­vived.
