The first Vauxhall car was made in 1903 and early models were tourers, but in 1908, a 3-litre 20hp car was entered in the 2,000 Miles Trial, winning its class and making best individual performance. It featured a new side-valve engine which by 1910, had been tuned to provide 60hp. A low 4-seater body was fronted by a pointed radiator incorporating the famous flutes which characterised Vauxhall cars until 1958. Two of the new cars were entered in the Prince Henry Trials in Germany, after which the model was named. By 1913, the engine size had increased to 3.9 litres. One of the first true sports cars, it evolved into the 4.5 litre Vauxhall 30/98.
Probably one of the most original cars in the Museum, this 2-seater Prince Henry was purchased new on the Isle of Wight by Mrs F.A. Cheverton and laid up in 1923, having covered only 15,000 miles. The car has hardly run since.
