It’s shiny and extreme, weird, overdone, and in-your-face in a manner that puts a grin on you just walking around it
Sydney Allard’s famous one-off hillclimb car, the 1947 Steyr-Allard, is the best known of all his vehicles. Allard competed in the British Hillclimb Championship with this car for five years, finishing 3rd in 1947 and 1948, 1st in 1949, 2nd in 1950, and 3rd again in 1951. The car held records at various hillclimb courses and sprint events in which it competed. After being sold in 1952, the car continued to compete until the early 1960s. It was acquired by the current owner in 1994 and restored to active competition in 2001. This car has been fully documented in hundreds of books and magazine articles.
