Back to our Roots: The Vauxhall D-Type

Before World War I, horseback was the go-to mode of transportation. During those four years of conflict, the vehicle was born. The car pictured above didn’t see front line action, but it was one of the defining vehicles of combat. The Vauxhall D-Type or “25hp” had a 4-cylinder 3,969cc engine and maxed-out around 60mph. This machine crossed battlefields on the Western Front, Egypt, and Russian Empire. Only two D-Types survive today but it will forever be appreciated as the car that started it all.
