The Cresta was a more expensive version of the Velox. From 1960, it had a 2,651 cc engine of 115 bhp. The Cresta and Velox had front disc brakes. They were also available with overdrive as an optional extra. The three-speed gearbox was operated by a column-mounted gear-lever. The 1964 Cresta had a 6-cylinder of either 2,651 or 3,299 cc. Because these engines produced 115 and 130 bhp the top speed was about 100 mph (160 kph).
