Get to know the car!

Supercharged

The KN was first delivered in September 1935 and still retains its original KN-type engine and other components, and she is believed to have been rebuilt to K3 pointed-tail specification already in the late 1930s, but little is known of her racing history due to the untimely death of the previous owner shortly after my purchase. The car is fitted with a Marshall K150 supercharger, stronger Armstrong pre-selector gearbox and Girling hydraulic brakes just a sum up of the complete specification list.

LIFE'S A CLIMB BUT THE VIEW IS GREAT

Hill climb shake down

In the specifications list (underneath) you'll see that the car was built for competitive track and hill climb use: in complete road trim and weighting 850 kg, making this car powerful and great in handling corners. The current owner used the car numerous times in hill climb and rally events and can attest that it is equally tractable on the road and completely shaken down and sorted out.

Be amazed

If you're looking for a fast, fun, exciting and reliable prewar car. This two-seater is the one.
You'll be amazed with its power and road handling.
