Alvis: Still Making Cars How They Used To Be

The Alvis Car Company are manufacturing to special order a limited number of famous Alvis models. They are faithful to the original design and by using the Works Drawings from the period they retain all their traditional character and quality, yet are emission compliant. The cars carry Alvis chassis numbers and engine numbers which follow on from the last in the model sequence, which is why they have been designated the Continuation Series.

Vanden Plas

Tourer

The 10ft 4in. wheelbase Vanden Plas Tourer expresses grace, speed and breeding in every line. The powerful 4.3 Litre Alvis engine provides acceleration of 0-50mph in 7.6 seconds. The imposing frontal appearance is enhanced by a sweeping waistline flowing into a fared decking at the rear into which the spare wheel is sunk in a neat and pleasing manner.

With it’s streamlined individual wings and absence of runner-boards, this model presents a low, sleek appearance in keeping with the characteristics of the chassis. The hood and side curtains give protection from the weather, yet it can be folded down into very small and neat proportions. A wide range of upholstery and paint finish is available to meet every customer’s personal preferences.

Lancefield

Concealed Hood

With coachwork specifically designed for the 1938 London Motor show, the Lancefield Concealed Hood is an excellent dual-purpose model meeting the requirements of those who require a closed four seater whilst also allowing them to enjoy the thrill of driving an open car of breathtaking appearance and outstanding performance.

The wide doors allow easy access to both front and rear seats. Large winding windows and narrow screen pillars give maximum visibility. The hood is readily and unobtrusively folded into a concealed compartment within the coachwork at the rear; with the hood fully erected the car is weather proof, whilst it is possible to fold back the front section only; leaving the rear seats protected. The body may be painted and trimmed in a wide range of colours and leathers.
