A famous Hill-Climb Special,the Freikaiserwagen, was inspired by Dr Porsche’s pre-war thinking. Powered by a mid-mounted 1096cc Blackburne V-twin, it first appeared in 1936, and won the Shelsley Walsh outright record in June 1949. It was dismantled in 1950

The orginal engine was located, ad the car is restored to its 1930s specification, when it boasted a GN chassis and Morgan front suspension.
