The Alvis 4.3 liter was a car that Alvis built from 1936 to 1940 as the successor of the 3½ liter .
The 4.3 liter SA presented in 1936 had a six-cylinder in-line engine with overhead valves with a cubic capacity of 4387 cc (bore × stroke = 92 mm × 110 mm), which - ventilated by three SU carburetors - a power of 137 bhp (101 kW) at 3600 / min. gave. Chassis were available with the wheelbase 3150 mm or 3226 mm. With the same gauge as in the predecessor, 1422 mm. The chassis also corresponded to its predecessor: Rear was a driven rigid axle installed, which hung on semi-elliptical longitudinal plate springs. At the front, the car had independent suspension on a transverse leaf spring.
The top speed was 161 km / h. This corresponds to 100.5 mph. So it was a real "hundred-mile car".
The 4.3 liter was available as a touring car, as a sedan or as a convertible. The superstructures were 4851 mm long and 1778 mm wide. Normally, Alvis provided only the chassis that was ready to drive, and made the bodies on behalf of the factory or the customer.
In 1940, the production of the 4.3 liter was discontinued without replacement due to world war 2 .
