Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Alta Car and Engineering Company was a sports and racing car manufacturer from England, commonly known simply as Alta. Their cars contested five FIA World Championship races between 1950 and 1952, as well as Grand Prix events prior to this. They also supplied engines to a small number of other constructors, most notably the Connaught and HWM teams. The company was founded by engineer Geoffrey Taylor in Surbiton, Surrey, and produced its first automobile in 1929. Alta''s first vehicle was a sports car powered by a 1.1L engine, featuring an aluminium block, wet liners and shaft-driven twin overhead camshafts, which Taylor designed himself. It was offered in normal or supercharged form giving 49 or 76bhp. A choice of 4 speed non synchromesh or pre-selector gearboxes was available. These were mounted on a low-slung chassis frame with open two or four seat bodies. Thirteen were made of which five are thought to survive.
