Pictured is just one of two short chassis 8-litres equipped with a Gurney Nutting Tourer body. The body of the second car was transferred to a Rolls Royce Phantom chassis, making this the sole surviving example. Although the car was reconditioned and refurbished in recent years, it remains in a highly original condition. It was offered by Christies in their 2004 Le Mans Classic auction, where it exchanged hands for a healthy $574.410.
