Description

The Sunbeam Tiger was a racing car of the 1920s, built by Sunbeam of Wolverhampton. It was the last car to be competitive both as a land speed record holder, and as a circuit-racing car. The chassis and bodywork of the Sunbeam were conventional for racing cars of their time. The car's novelty lay with its engine. Sunbeam's 1925 Grand Prix engine had been a successful 2 litre straight-6 twin-overhead-cam. This car was to use a pair of the same block and head arrangements, mated to a single 75 vee crankcase to produce a 3,976 cc V12. Supercharging brought the power up to 306 hp (228 kW).show more
