1951 Jowett Jupiter Sports For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 21 September 2019. Estimate:€30,000 - €50,000 Advanced engineering by von EberhorstInnovative horizontally opposed four-cylinder engineOne of only 1,200 built Long a maker of two-cylinder cars, Jowett Cars, Ltd introduced a horizontally opposed four-cylinder on the eve of World War II. After the war, this evolved to the Javelin saloon, a sleek fastback car with a 1,486 cc overhead-valve engine. In 1951, a sports two-seater named Jupiter appeared, using the Javelin engine in an innovative torsion-bar-suspended tubular chassis designed by Austrian engineer Robert Eberan von Eberhorst, known for his work on the Auto Union Type D Grand Prix car. Restored in bright green, the car is upholstered in beige leather, complemented by a varnished wood instrument panel. As befits a sports model, it is fitted with a 5,500 rpm rev counter. A bench seat allows three passengers, enabled by a column-mounted gear change. Charming and seldom seen, this Jupiter Sports would prove a conversation piece wherever it goes.Tecnologia muito avançada, assinada por von EberhorstInovador motor de quatro cilindros horizontalmente opostosUm de apenas 1200 construídosA Jowett Cars, Ltd já produzia automóveis de dois cilindros há bastante tempo quando, pouco antes do início da II Guerra Mundial, lançou um modelo com motor de quatro cilindros horizontalmente opostos. A seguir ao conflito, o conceito evoluiu, dando origem ao Javelin, uma berlina com linhas esguias, destacando-se a traseira fastback, e motor de 1486 cc, com válvulas à cabeça. Em 1951, apareceu o Jupiter, um desportivo de dois lugares, com o motor do Javelin. Tinha também um inovador chassis tubular, com suspensão por barras de torção, desenhado pelo engenheiro austríaco Robert Eberan von Eberhorst, conhecido pelo seu trabalho no Auto Union Type D de grande prémio.Restaurado em verde claro, está forrado a pele bege, complementada por um painel de instrumentos em madeira envernizada. Como é próprio de um desportivo, está dotado de um conta-rotações graduado até às 5500 rpm. Um banco corrido permite três passageiros, com a ajuda do comando da caixa na coluna de direção. Charmoso e pouco visto, este Jupiter Sports será tema de conversa em qualquer cenário.RM Sotheby’s is pleased to announce that this Jowett Jupiter was the winner of the 1951 Rallye Internacional de Lisboa, driven by Joaquim Filipe Nogueira.
