The Speed Model was a car made by Sunbeam between 1932 and 1934. A total of over 100 cars were made.

The engine was a 2916cc six cylinder unit with overhead camshafts and pushrods. The engine was connected to a four speed gearbox via a single plate clutch. The car was fitted with totally revised inlet and exhaust manifolds. The engine produced 72bhp and the top speed of the car was 84mph (135kmh).

The chassis was 10ft long and had semi-elliptical leaf springs all round. The car was also fitted with Lockheed hydraulic brakes.

Two body styles were available, a two door close-coupled saloon and a four-door pillarless saloon.

The two-door saloon cost £745 when new.
