Rekindling on old British Marque is always a worthwhile exercise. Founded in 1937, Atalanta of Middlesex’ time was short lived, although one of the most advanced brands of the time. The brand built 22 cars in two years of production powered by both a 4- cylinder and in the second year, a V12 powerplant. In 1939 when the war broke out, the company abandoned production of cars, instead turning to pumping equipment.
Atalanta had big dreams. In 1938, the brand would head to Le Mans with their 1.5 litre 4-cylinder powered model. Unfortunately the car retired early due to a broken driveshaft. Born again in 2011 under the stewardship of Martyn Corfield, an avid fan and supporter from Staffordshire, acquired an original car from an auction and the proceeded to acquiring the required licensing to build a modern day example. Corfield sought the finest materials to ensure perfect fit and fit finish, a re-engineered, re-mastered version of the orginal. This is one of just two newly built Atalantas.
Powered once more by a 4cylinder engine, this time a 2.5 litre Ford-sourced unit, affords the Atalanta a healthy 214hp and 198lb ft of torque. The transmission is a manual five-speed Borg Warner unit with a revised and updated Atalanta aluminium casing. Unlike other vintage lookalikes, everything on the Atalanta has been bespoke. As such the fit and finish on the cars is unlike anything similar, that might borrow switchgear and the like to make it work.
Very much encapsulating the 1930s spirit and style, this Atalanta Roadster is presented in black over an elegant British Racing Green leather interior. A modern day take on a 1930s sportscar, this UK registered example presents on the button as is available to view at our showrooms just outside London immediately.
