1946-1951 ALLARD K1/K2 specifications


Allard’s first post-war sports car was a leap forward. Although it looked ungainly (a subsequent family trait) it was a great car to drive, proving very effective in competition. The technical make-up might have been simple, with a box-section frame, transverse leaf springs and a steel body, but careful chassis development was the key. The fitment of a powerful V8 engine (from the Ford Pilot) delivered plenty of effortless performance. The end result was a charismatic English sports car that has a loyal following to this day.
