The Lambda was produced between 1923 and 1931. This model featured a V4 2-litre engine producing 49hp, a 3-speed manual gearbox, independent suspension, and a monocoque shell (allowing the car’s body to support the load). Top speed was 75mph/121kph (Data courtesy of Wikipedia and Autoevolution.com).
