Description

Model. This represents the racing car built by the Sunbeam Company of Wolverhampton, England, which in 1912 took the first three places in the Coupe de I'Auto race at Dieppe, France. It had a 3 litre, side-valve engine, single carburettor and four-speed gearbox. The maximum speed was 80 miles per hour and it was the forerunner of the famous and succesful Sunbeam racing cars driven by Henry Segrave and others in the 1920s.
