Sunbeam Imp - BTCC - B McGovern Scale - 1:43

The Sunbeam was a premium marque of Rootes Engineering and so when the management decided to have a premium version of the popular Hillman Imp (another Rootes Engineering brand), it decided to name the car as the Sunbeam Imp.

This was necessitated by the fact that the Mini Cooper was already a popular brand and by giving this new model twin carburettors and wider wheels, the firm wanted to have a larger slice of the market. This car’s USP was its silent and smooth engine. The nippy Sunbeam Imp could produce impressive power for such a small car.

In the BTCC^ (British Touring Car Championship) of 1972, this car that was tuned by George Bevan (a dealer of cooking gas range as well as race car tuning specialist) was driven by Bill McGovern who raced it to championship victory.


^ the BTCC first took place in 1958 and until 1987 was known as the British Saloon Car Championship
