The Vitesse was a car made by GN between 1919 and 1922.

The Vitesse was fitted with a 1086cc V-twin engine with an overhead camshaft with pushrods although later engines had an overhead camshaft for each cylinder.

The engine was mated to a three-speed gearbox via a single plate clutch. The engine produced 35bhp and the car had a top speed of 84mph (135kmh).

The Vitesse had a boat-tailed body which was quite popular at the time.

The chassis was 8ft 6in with quarter-elliptical leaf-springs all round. Brakes were only fitted on the rear wheels and they were cable operated.
