Built originally to compete in the 1910 Prince Henry Trial held in Germany, the C10 3-litre Vauxhall has since been acknowledged as Britain’s first true sports car. This 1911 car has been owned by Vauxhall Motors since 1946 and is thought to be a pre-production example, one of only nine surviving cars in the world. It is fitted with the earlier 3-litre 60bhp engine, a lightweight chassis and low front axle.
