The origins of the Invicta Company go back to 1924, when Noel Macklin and Oliver Lyle joined forces to create a car that combines American flexibility and performance with European quality and roadholding. The price was only a secondary consideration, a factor that contributed significantly to the fact that both companies were unable to survive the depression of the early 1930s. Like Bentley, Invicta fought rising costs and falling sales. The latest chapter in Invicta‘s history began in 1980, when Mike Bristow acquired the rights to the brand and began manufacturing „continuation“ versions of the brand‘s most coveted model: the 4ó-litre S-type „Low Chassis“. He also had plans for a modern Invicta, which made its debut at the British International Motor Show 2002. This was the „S1“, a deep-drawn coupé designed by Chris Marsh, a man with rich experience in the development of special vehicles and in endurance racing. The S1, manufactured in collaboration with Leigh Adams of Automotive Design& Prototyping Ltd., contained only proven components from mass-produced vehicles in order to reduce costs and increase reliability. A Ford Mustang V8 engine and transmission were chosen and the powertrain was installed in an enormously strong tubular steel chassis equipped with a Racing wishbone suspension and ventilated AP disc brakes. The carbon fibre body was glued to the chassis and contributed to the torsional stiffness of the vehicle, while a concealed, integrated roll cage held the occupants safely in the event of a rollover. As you would expect from a car with a list price of around £150,000, the Invicta was exceptionally well equipped, with leather trim, power steering, heated front and rear windows, air conditioning, el. windows, satellite navigation & central locking as standard. The factory demanded a maximum speed of 180 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 5 seconds. Despite ist more than sufficient performance, the Invicta S1 simply could not keep up with the price and was even more expensive than an Aston Martin DB7 Vantage. The company went bankrupt in April 2012.
This rare, modern British super sports car, from 2009, is currently part of the private collection of the seller of important Invicta automobiles in Germany.
The Invicta brand has been available intermittently throughout successive decades. Initially, the manufacturer was based in Cobham, Surrey, England from 1925 to 1933, then in Chelsea, London, England.....
