Overview

1905 - 1907

The Hornet was a light car powered by a 9hp 2-cylinder engine under the seat, driving through an epicyclic gearbox and single chain to the rear axle.  It had a dummy bonnet and 2-seater body.  An 18hp 4-cylinder was also listed.  The car is said to have been made for Horner & Sons by the Lenox Autocar Co., though this company cannot be traced as a British manufacturer.  In 1908 a second-hand Hornet with 10hp 2-cylinder Stevens engine and Vincent body was advertised.
