Conceived for competition in the 20's, the Amilcar has a straight six cylinder engine with a double overhead camshaft, a dry sump system and a compressor. It was a real Grand Prix car despite it's only 1100ccm. When it was launched in 1926 it achieved no less than 74 victories in that year, such as the Italian Grand Prix, the Provence Grand Prix and the Brooklands 200 Miles.
