A Brief History:

The Sunbeam Motor Car Company was founded by John Marston, who produced the first experiment car in Wolverhampton in 1899. Production of Sunbeam commenced with the Mabley, built under licence from De-Dion.

In 1902, A Berliet designed 4 cylinder was sold in the UK under the name Sunbeam, by 1904 a redesigned version was being produced by Sunbeam in a 6 cylinder configuration.During 1905 other models (12/14, 10/12) were in production, design for these models was attributed to Angus Shaw who joined Sunbeam in 1905.

The model 12/16 1909 - 1911 was designed by Louis Coatalen. Coatalen was responsible for Sunbeam's entry into motor racing. In 1912 the Sunbeam 12/16 model came 1st, 2nd & 3rd, in the Coupe de L'Auto. By 1918 Sunbeam cars had won almost every racing category for which they were eligible at Brooklands. During the war Sunbeam production was directed to Army requirements and ambulances, and later to the maunfacture of aircraft engines. Motor vehicle production was low, due to the redirection of resources and Rover were allowed, under licence to produce Sunbeam vehicles.

Post the World War, Sunbeam merged with Talbot/Darraq in doing so formed STD Motors Ltd. New models (12/16, 14, 16 and 25hp) were marketed. Inclusion of front wheel brakes being a feature of the 16 and 25hp models.

Motor racing remained a feature of Sunbeam's history, with wins at the 1923 French Grand Prix, the Spanish Grand Prix of 1924, and also being entered in the Monte Carlo Rally.Sunbeam also held the world land speed record, being the first car to exceed 150 MPH.

By 1930 the 7 bearing engine was being produced for the 20hp, 23hp and the 25hp production models, the later also equipped with hydraulic brakes. The Speed 20 model with the 20hp engine commenced in production in 1932, and the 4 cyl Dawn of 12 hp in 1933, a sports version the Sports 21 was an uprated derivative of the earlier Speed 20.

The Rootes Brothers purchased the Companies assets in 1935, marking the end of the Sunbeam.
