Alvis 12/50 FWD, year 1928. Chassis number 546X. Colour blue combined with a black leather interior. The Alvis 12/50 FWD is a very special and rare (sports) car, this Alvis model was the FIRST production car featuring Front Wheel Drive! The other specifications were exotic too; the four-cylinder engine sported an overhead camshaft and a supercharger! The cars were very successful in their race classes at Brooklands and at Le Mans. Only 140 examples were built, and 35 cars are still known to exist today. The Alvis comes with a wonderfully documented history file. In three massive file folders you will find a chronological history, period photographs, (service, restoration and overhaul) invoices and many more documents of interest. The history in a nutshell is available on request as PDF file. This ultra rare Alvis 12/50 FWD is a collectors dream. In the 1990s the car was restored to original condition in the UK. In 2014 the automobile was purchased by a Dutchman who had the engine fully rebuilt and a new exhaust made for road use. The engine was Dyno tested and fine-tuned. This magnificent automobile is in a wonderful condition. Alvis 12/50 Front Wheel Drive cars are scarce and seldom offered for sale, this is your opportunity to acquire one of these ultra-rare thoroughbreds!
