A visit to the Olympia Motor Show.

Sunbeams have not made a sports car since the old 3-litre model, but this year they have come back with a "Speed Model." I liked the look of it. The saloon on the stand was finished in two shades of blue, with an attractively curved rear panel. I understand that the car is designed for comfortable fast travel rather than a terrific maximum speed, and it should therefore be ideally suited to such events as the Monte Carlo Rally.
