Rarely seen quality for this magnificent example of a 12/ 70 Alvis Special. The car was manufactured in 1939 but first registered on 15th May 1940. The car features an eye-catching aluminium polished aluminium body. Powered by the tractable six cylinder Alvis 'Silver Crest' 2, 7 liter engine which undergone the most complete and thorough overhaul process and fitted with the close couples Silver Crest synchromesh gearbox, the car is a real pleasure to drive and incredibly easy. The final engines-up was assisted by a Technical Director for a Formula One team. The standard of workmanship is consistent throughout the whole vehicle starting with the strengthening of the original Alvis chassis. This seldom-seen competition Alvis is the result of over 3000 man hours of labour and a substantial financial investment. The car is very richly documented, a photographic record of the restoration confirms the attention to detail resulting in a championship and class winning car, securing the 'Ruth and Jim Hubert Memorial Trophy' for Alvis Racing Drivers in 2009, with a record number of championship points and a record that still stands today. In 2010 the car beat 250 competitors at the Car Club Prescott Meeting being awarded "the Silver Con-Rod Trophy". The car has predominantly been used as a fabulous road car, the huge amount of torque at low revs and synchromesh gearbox lends itself to pleasurable driving off the track. Rare opportunity to purchase a real collector's item... The car is sold in EUR (€ 205. 000).
