Overview

The prototype Bassett (which still exists) was built in 1899, but a new car 'on which the Bassett Motor Syndicate has been working for some time' was shown at London's Agricultural Hall Exhibition in May 1901.  It was a 4-seater powered by a 4hp Schwanemeyer engine mounted below the rear seat, with 2-speed gearbox.  The engine, transmission and rear axle were contained in a single aluminium oil chamber.

Little was heard of it after its announcement.
