The only Factory Lightweight Squire and works demonstrator produced
Fabulous period competition history, including an award on the 1936 RAC Rally
Restored for one of the greatest Squire aficionados, JB8776 has since successfully completed the Mille Miglia twice
An opportunity to acquire one of the most fabled pre-war Supercharged sports cars of all time, indeed she is truly an automotive unicorn!
Founded in 1931 in Henley-on-Thames, Squire Motors was the ambitious creation of an equally ambitious twenty-one-year-old, Adrian Squire. Having draughted ideas for an elegant 1½-Litre tourer at just fourteen, less than a decade later he was producing machines to rival contemporary Bugattis and Alfas.
 No more than a dozen Squires were built, but with impressive top speeds and dazzling braking performance (stopping from 30mph in less than 10m), the lightweight Squire encapsulated the road-going Grand Prix racers of the era. Each car sold came with the guarantee that it had reached 100mph at the legendary Brooklands circuit.
 JB8776 was the sixth Squire created, and the only factory lightweight example ever built. The Squire’s 1, 496cc inline-four OHC engine was overhauled and rebuilt by the previous long-term owner and is comfortably capable of propelling the head-turning two-seater to the promised 100mph, even over a considerable distance.
 From the 1936 RAC Rally and VSCC events to two successfully completed Mille Miglias, JB8776 has enjoyed the longest and most successful sporting career of any Squire. Her performance, drivability, and rarity make her an appealing entry for some of the most selective and prestigious automotive events across the globe.
