The success of the Nine Sport at Le Mans led immediately to the introduction, in 1933, of the first Le Mans model. This was the two-seater equivalent of the Nine Sports and it typified the British sports car of the 1930s. At a price of £215, an output of 34hp and a top speed of over 70mph with the windshield lowered, it provided keen competition for its closest rivals, the J2 and P series MG's. The Le Mans four-cylinder performance engine of 972cc included high lift harmonic cams, a counterbalanced crankshaft and an extra-large capacity ribbed oil sump for greater cooling capacity. Body changes included the addition of an externally mounted 12-gallon slab fuel tank, fitted with a quick action filler cap and twin rear-mounted spare tyres to complete the competition look.

This attractive Le Mans Speed sports tourer from Coventry has benefitted from a lifetime of routine maintenance and only shows three previous owners. In 2009, a full and comprehensive overhaul of the car was completed, this included rebuilds of both the steering box and gearbox and an engine rebuild by the Singer workshop was also completed at this time. The bodywork was refreshed with a full respray in the original colour of royal blue and the wheels were re-wired and re-chromed by the specialist firm, Ashley Motors, in Hampshire. Representing the most desirable specification of the marque, this MoT test certificate exempt Singer Nine is offered to auction with a V5C registration document and full weather equipment.
