The 24/80 was a car produced by Beverley-Barnes between 1923 and 1926.

The engine had eight cylinders and a bore of 75mm. This gave a capacity of 3959cc. Twin Zenith carburettors fed different halves of the engines with the air inlet being heated with exhaust gases. The engine could produce 80hp and take the car to around 55mph (89kmh). Ignition was by a Scintilla magneto and the car also had a three speed gearbox. This drove a tyre pump from its output end and was connected to a multi-plate clutch at the input end.

Vanden Plas, James Young and Harrington all supplied bodies. Standard designs were saloon-limousine that were suitable for all weather. The wheelbase was 12ft 6in long and had semi-elliptical springs all round.

The chassis cost £750 and the Saloon/Limousine cost £1250 when new.
