Welcome to the new/old Atalanta Roadster

atalanta-roadster1

The original Atalanta was technically advanced for the time. The company’s original aim was ‘to fulfil the exacting requirements of professional and amateur drivers on both road and track’. Just 21 cars were produced before the outbreak of war in 1939 forced the demise of the company. Only seven of the original Atalantas still exist, of which four are in running order.

The new car is the result of a joint venture between Staffordshire-based motoring enthusiast Martyn Corfield and Cheshire-based restorer Trevor Farrington.

It blends Atalanta’s original 1930s philosophy with modern safety features, and more than 85 per cent of the components are unique to the car’s design. The exterior is a hand-crafted aluminium over ash coach-built structure.

Limited commissions for the Atalanta are being taken and each will be built to an individual specification.
