When somebody mentions Scotland, most people think of Whisky, Kilts, Snow and Rolling Hills, not of Scottish Cars.
And yet Scotland - a country with a past of legendary inventors and engineers - have indeed built some brilliant cars!
All Scottish car manufacturers have since faded into the annals of history, but in 1927 in the town of Dumphries a company called Arrol-Johnson created the beautiful vehicle seen here.
So, here's a little about the company. Later known as Arrol-Aster, Arrol-Johnson operated from 1896 until 1931 and in fact produced the first automobile manufactured in Britain. They also developed the world's first Off-Road vehicle - for the Egyptian Government - and also built a vehicle which traversed snow and ice on Ernest Shackleton's Nimrod Expedition to the South Pole. Did I mention before that the Scots knew a bit?
There isn't a lot information around relating to this particular model, but I believe it has a straight-six engine of 2370cc and a 4-speed gearbox.
