1914 Sunbeam 12/16

The Sunbeam 12/16 is an automobile initially built by the British automaker Sunbeam from 1910 to 1914.

The first versions of the car were fitted with 2416cc four-cylinder T-head engines. However, the 12/16 vehicles built after October 1911 were powered by 3016cc L-head engines.

Sunbeam stopped manufacturing the 12/16 in 1914 with the arrival of World War I, but the Rover Company took up production of the vehicle that year to provide staff cars for the allied powers during the war. About 6731 examples were produced, 4950 of which were made by Sunbeam, and 1781 were built by Rover.
