Driven by Henry Segrave (who became Sir after this record) this car, one of the most beautiful LSR vehicles of all time, set a new Land Speed Record at 231.446 MPH in 1929.
Introduced in 1976 this model had the shortest run in my production. Only 160 were built before I decided to stop due to the excessive amount of time required by many of the details that were completely hand made, including the lettering on the head rest, which was done by hand on each model!
The model was delivered without the wooden base that appears in the photo.
The real car is part of the National Motor Museum collection at Beaulieu, UK.
