Allard J2R

270 bhp @ 4800rpm

The fastest of all the Allards, this had the short wheelbase frame of the Palm Beach, but with a de Dion rear axle (located by an A-frame), a full width body and a variety of engines, although the 5.4 litre Cadillac V8 was the favourite.  Sydney Allard actually led the first lap at Le Mans in 1953 in one, but the race was won by a Jaguar C Type with proper aerodynamics, a space frame, and disc brakes.
