About Atalanta

The Atalanta was an English automobile manufactured from 1937 until 1939 by Atalanta Motors Ltd in Staines, Middlesex.

Two models were made.

The 1937 car used Albert Gough's somewhat erratic 4 cylinder overhead cam 1496 cc 78 bhp and 1996 cc 98 bhp engines with three valves and two spark plugs per cylinder which had been previously fitted to some Frazer Nashes where Gough had worked. An Arnott supercharged version was also available. Three or four speed gearboxes were offered. The car had a tubular steel chassis and all round independent suspension using coil springs. Two seat open sports and two seat drophead coupé bodies built by Abbott were available.

From 1938 the car could be had with a 4·3 litre V-12 Lincoln Zephyr engine giving 112 bhp which proved to be the more popular. The car had a 3 speed gearbox. A four seat version on a slightly longer chassis was made as well as the two seaters.

The cars were very expensive and the outbreak of war stopped production after only about 20 cars were made. The company continued in existence making pumps and becoming Atalanta Engineering Ltd.

Tips and tricks for lowering car insurance costs in Great Britain

If you’re trying to finesse the lowest price of car insurance in Great Britain, there are a few things to watch out for. Car insurance marketing is clever. Its aim is to make you feel you’re getting the best deal but to maximise the insurer’s profit at the same time.
