The Nine Le Mans was a car made by Singer between 1933 and 1937.

The Le Mans was introduced at the 1933 Motor Show.

The engine had been thoroughly reworked and featured a high-lift camshaft and a fully-balance crankshaft. The new sump was now ribbed aluminium instead of being pressed steel.

The chassis (being 7ft 8in) was a special design. It was double-dropped to lower the car between the axles.

The Nine Le Mans was entered in many sporting events both by private owners and by works cars. The works car visited Le Mans again in 1934 and performed well, coming first and second in their class.

Later that year the Le Mans was revised. The twin Solex carburettors were switched for twin SU carburettors.

The chassis had 7ft 8in long and had semi-elliptical springs all round. Lockheed hydraulic brakes were fitted on all four wheels as standard.

The Le Mans two-seater cost £215 when it was new.
