Engine:
Meadows 4ED, 1496cc with twin carburettors, 52bhp

Wheelbase:
9' 3"

The V type is essentially an S type, but with a twin port head and two carburettors instead of the supercharger, and with a Weymann Sportsman’s Coupé body like that fitted to some Hypers. It also has the brake servo and 15 degree sloping radiator. The engine as in the Hyper is set back in the frame, giving the car good balance and handling qualities. 105 V types were built, of which 10 survive, seven in the Club.
