Invicta will reveal a much improved version of its 170mph 320bhp S1 luxury two-seater at The Sunday Times Motor Show Live at Birmingham’s NEC on Tuesday 25 May.

The 2004 model Invicta S1 showcar features a carbon-fibre body in granite-silver with saddle-tan, black and magnolia interior trim. The S1’s suspension has revised settings for a more comfortable ride and softer mounting bushes to isolate the cabin from road surface-shocks.  Inside, the quality and finish of the all-leather hand-crafted interior is greatly improved.

“The 2004 Motor Show marks a new beginning for Invicta,” comments Invicta Chairman Michael Bristow. “Last September, Invicta proudly handed over its very first customer car, just 11 months after the prototype S1 made its world debut at the NEC. Now, after building and testing two prototypes and several customer cars, we have incorporated numerous small but worthwhile improvements in response to media and customer comments. We are delighted to return to the NEC with the improved, definitive, full production, 2004 specification S1 model.”

As standard, the Invicta offers metallic paint, full leather interior, air-conditioning, RDS tuner/CD player, reverse-parking sensors, satellite navigation, anti-theft alarm, Tracker recovery system and 19 inch, five-spoke alloy wheels shod exclusively with TOYO Proxes T1-S directional tyres.

Yours, on the road, for £77,000.
