Roaring Twenties to roaring twenties in this astounding Amilcar

Rétromobile might be a few weeks away, but Classic Driver dealer Dylan Miles has already laid a claim to the star of the show award with this exquisite Amilcar C6 Brookland Voiturette, a car that, as this fun short film shows, is still a veritable giant-killer 93 years later...

The new Amilcar C6 

The French manufacturer Amilcar produced only around 45 of the six-cylinder C6 voiturettes, of which this example – commonly known as the ‘Humphreys’ car thanks to its highest-profile racing driver owner – is arguably among the most storied. The ultra-significant car raced at Brooklands an extraordinary 56 times and boasts a history file that is as extensive as it is entertaining. Now, without further ado, we’ll let Dylan Miles transport you back to 1927 and the oh-so-British launch of the handsome voiturette. If you haven’t thought about a career in acting before, Dylan, it’s never too late!
