Amilcar, a prominent sports racing car manufacturer in France during the interwar period, enjoyed considerable success between 1921 and 1937. Remarkably, just one year after commencing production, they clinched their first victory in the world's inaugural 24-Hour race, firmly establishing their legacy.

This 1924 Amilcar CGS stands out as an exceptional vehicle. It boasts an elegant, well-proportioned body painted in a deep blue hue, complemented by a brilliantly polished metal hood. Notably, the car underwent an older restoration conducted by the renowned bodywork expert Rod Jolley, known for his top-tier craftsmanship.

Inside, the car features a black leather interior that has acquired a delightful patina over time. An interesting detail is the repositioning of the passenger seat further back to enhance comfort for two occupants. The dashboard is adorned with a series of period-correct gauges, creating an awe-inspiring visual experience. Behind the passenger seat, you'll find access to the boattail, providing ample space for luggage.

During its rebuild, the car was thoughtfully upgraded with a larger and period-appropriate 1244cc M2 side valve engine featuring an aluminum head, delivering an impressive 50 bhp output. The vehicle was listed with a minimum top speed of 120 km/ h (75 mph) and has the potential for further tuning to achieve even greater performance.

With only two meticulous owners over the past six decades, this car has been meticulously maintained, preserving its authenticity and exceptional condition. Additionally, a custom-made trailer can be included with the car if desired.
