Probably the best and certainly the fastest Austin A30 in the world!
Details Specification

'The Austin A30 'Speedwell' was raced successfully in period by the Formula One twice World Champion, the late and legendary Graham Hill. This car was built under guidance of Goodwood saloon expert Rae Davis as a nod to that original car replicating both the colour scheme and look of the original car, as well as the results on the track.This immaculate and special car was built from a lightweight seam welded shell and features a T45 welded in FIA roll cage, special front springs and roll bar with Armstrong adjustable Lever shock absorbers by Pete Cauldwell of Worldwide Imports. The rear features special springs with an 'A' frame anti-tramp bar and adjustable Lever shock absorbers as well as EN40 steel half shafts, double bearing hubs and a limited slip differential. The new 'lightweight' interior features a a period Stack dashboard and instruments, with belts and seat all in date. The unique engine is prepared and hand built by none other than Neil Brown of Neil Brown Engineering, the man responsible for the build and development of the Works Honda engines in the current BTCC incorporating new parts from MED and Swiftune. Owned and more recently raced by the legendary Gordon Shedden, twice British Touring Car Champion and all round nice guy, 'Flash' has too many commitments in 2016 to race this particular car, which now represents a unique opportunity to acquire a famous and very successful Goodwood friendly saloon. Run and prepared by the famous Neal family owned 'Team Dynamics', who are responsible for the running of the Honda Works cars in the current BTCC. The car is 'on the button' and offered absolutely ready to race and win, and is eligible for numerous series - such as the HRDC series for 1950's cars, and is also a highly likely invitee for the next 1950's St. Mary's Trophy grid at the Goodwood Revival. Uniquely, the new owner will also benefit from a test day ‘handover' if required from Team Dynamics and Flash.
