“On revient toujours à son premier amour” This quote from D.H. Lawrence comes immediately to my mind when welcoming this superb Alvis Speed 20 SC Tourer into my classic car garage.

Thirty years ago, when I started my classic car activity, many Alvis Speed models, be it Speed 20, Speed 25 or 4.3, sporty Tourers, elegant DHC models and Saloons from various coachbuilders passed through my hands and books.

Often classic car friends and customers asked me which prewar car I personally would prefer to own.

My answer always was : an Alvis Speed 20 Vanden Plas Tourer SC or SD.

Why? In my opinion Alvis constructed in the mid-30-ies the best British sportscar around. For its time very modern engineering, with independent front suspension, full synchromesh gearbox and a potent 2.8 liter six-cylinder engine fed by 3 SU carburettors developping nearly 90 HP.
