Known History

Alvis was founded by Thomas George John and G.P. de Freville. The first cars built under the Alvis name were manufactured in 1920, and the last Alvis (sports) cars came out of the factory in Coventry 47 years later. The ending of the brand name Alvis was sealed when it was incorporated into the British Leyland concern, where it became part of Rover.

 

The Alvis cars were of great quality and workmanship and were very fast as well. As for their cars, many parts were designed and manufactured by Alvisĺ own staff, and production was small-scaled and exclusive.

 

In the 1920s, Alvis was the first British car model to experiment with four-wheel drive. In fact, in 1925, they even manufactured sports and racing cars equipped with front-wheel drive, which had also been fitted with an overhead camshaft.

 

The Alvis Speed Twenty was manufactured between 1932 and 1936 and was equipped with a "Silver Eagle" engine. This Alvis Speed Twenty is equipped with the, more powerful, 3.5 litre speed 25 engine. The Alvis Speed Twenty presented here has the Silver Eagle logo on the grille. The Alvis had standard a hare as its logo.
