Basically, the Warwick was just a slightly different Peerless : The entire vehicle front was now hinged, the space frame chassis stiffer and revised the dashboard. The car was powered by a four-cylinder in-line engine with 1991 cc (later 2138 cc), the 100 bhp (74 kW) at 5000 min -1 (or later at 4600 min -1 ) made. Although the car was offered from 1960 to 1962, believed to have originated only 40 copies.
The vehicles were at a wheelbase of 2400 mm 4115 to 4445 mm long, 1600 to 1626 mm wide, 1295 mm high and weighed 1016-1067 kg. One of these cars was tested in 1961 by the British car magazine The Motor . It was found a top speed of 169.4 km / h and an acceleration of 0-100 km / h in 12.6 s. The gas consumption was 8.8 l / 100 km.
The test car cost £ 16,666 including taxes. Two prototypes of the later successor 3.5 liter or 305 GT were completed in 1961 and had the light aluminum V8 engine from Buick , which was later adopted by Rover. The motor had 3523 cc and provided 155 bhp (114 kW) John Gordon and Jim Keeble (who had previously used the Buick V8 in a Peerless) later used the Warwick frame as the basis for a car powered by a Chevrolet engine, designed by Giugiaro and built by Bertone . This was originally introduced in 1960 as Gordon GT and built in 1964 as Gordon Keeble .
