The 18 was a car made by Beverley-Barnes between 1926 and 1928.

The 2.4 litre 18 was a downsized version of the 24/80 although there were a few differences. Drive to the valve gear was by a two-stage chain and both the crankshaft and camshaft managed with five bearings instead of nine.

The car had a multi-plate clutch and a four speed gearbox. There were Perrot system brakes on all four wheels.

The engine was still an 8 cylinder unit that had coil ignition. The crankshaft and camshaft had torsional vibration dampeners. Carburation was by a single Stromberg unit. The chassis, axle and brakes all came from the Bean Fourteen.

The chassis cost £445 and the tourer cost £495.
