'Bunny' was built in 1921 at the Henniker Mews , Kensington, premises of Bamford and Martin. It used a shorter than usual chassis and was among the earliest vehicles produced by the company. It had an interesting and varied competition history.
It originally appeared painted green with a short, round tailed body. In this form it competed in the 279 mile Grand Prix de Voiturettes held at Le Mans in July 1921. This was not the 24 hour event that we know today. 'Bunny' was driven by B S Marshall and finished 6th out of the 19 cars which started the race.
It later appeared with a long tailed body that was left as unpainted aluminium. In this form it broke ten world records at Brooklands in May 1922. The drivers were H Kensington Moir, Sammy Davis and Clive Gallop.
The two models shown here were made in May 2020 from resin kits manufactured by Automobiles Michel Ligeret in France.
