1938 Alta Supercharged Sports 2-Seater arrives at TK

A wonderful 1938 Alta Supercharged Sports 2-Seater has just arrived at our workshops, with a fascinating history of both its maker, Geoffrey Taylor's Alta Car & Engineering Company of Surbiton, Surrey and the car itself, chassis number 66S. 13 Alta cars made between 1931 and 1935 whilst later pre-war Alta cars were even more select, with only six believed to have been made from 1935-39. With supercharger, these Alta engines were rated at 180bhp, giving a top speed approaching 120mph. This made the Alta one of the fastest pre-war sports cars and certainly one of the fastest in the 2-litre class.
