1935 Singer Nine Le Mans 4 Seater Sports


  • Attractive “long tail” Le Mans body
  • Full four seater, one of approximately 400 made
  • Well fitting soft top with side screens, plus full tonneau
  • Good history with plenty of work completed

The Appeal

Introduced in 1932 the immortal Singer Nine became one of the most popular and successful pre-war British sports cars. What really set the Nine apart was its success in the trials and reliability events of the day. 

As with many sports cars in the early 1930s, Singers were thinly disguised competition cars that could be driven as normal transport during the week, but with little more than the removal of a spare wheel, could be winning on the track at the weekend. In 1933 Singer entered a field of 9hp Sports models at Le Mans finishing in a creditable 13th overall position. 

In 1935 a four-seat version of the Le Mans was also available, somewhat of a hybrid of the Sports and the regular Le Mans. This example was built in late 1934 as a four seat Sports Le Mans, was purchased by the Seller from a friend in 2008. He has enjoyed driving the Singer for more than 3,000 miles over the past fifteen years, using it primarily for local shows and road trips.  

It has received plenty of regular maintenance plus plenty of more major work by marque specialists when necessary.  Running well and fun to drive, it is offered in good and nicely original condition.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
