In one of the more than 10 records one let run the car at full throttle for 3 days. The three drivers alternated, the drive remained the same. Before you now smile about the achieved average of 112 km/h, the engine has only 300 cc. And remember, it's the year 1954 and the circuit is called Montlhery located south of Paris.

Lloyd, that embodiment of a wooden box covered with Leukoplast comes to world record honours. In 1955 tries it again with the LP-400 engine and provides prompt 125 km/h. Instead of the original body, this car adorns one of light tube and aluminum, 'Superleggera' call it the Italians.

The car reportedly creates 150 km/h, a lot for a 40-HP-car. In the case of the relatively narrow rev range of the engine of course, a three-speed gearbox is problematic. How good that Montlhery had a steep curve, so one could stay in top gear. 06/12               Top of page               Index
