Allard J2

Model J2 was conceived after the Sydney Allard visited the United States in the late 1940s, and see how effective it may be a powerful American V-shaped eight-cylinder engine, mounted in a light two-seater car with an open top. He chose the V-shaped eight-cylinder engine Mercury, modified Ardun, volume of 4.3 litres, although some of the cars were sent to America in General without an engine and in the end they put one of the two preferred buyers types of engine: V-shaped eight-cylinder Cadillac or Chrysler with a spherical combustion chamber, the volume of 5.4 litres. At that time, as a model J2 was considered to be light, its tubular chassis with fixed criss-cross levers were also flexible, and that didn't help management. Another disadvantage was an independent front suspension, while the rear suspension De Dion improved the business. The model was very high speed, but gave a lot of trouble on winding roads and turns because of the large steering wheel, widely spaced pedals and uncomfortable shift, which hindered the fast driving in any place except the direct road. Later model J2X with elongated front part for the location significantly improved suspension was much better car.
