Armstrong Siddeley cars built to aircraft quality and even some models named after aircraft Typhoon, Hurricane, Lancaster, Whitley.

Here today is one of the last models built the Armstrong Siddeley Star Sapphire. The Star ceased production in 1960 it was competing with Bentley Jaguar. The Armstrong built cars to such a high quality but unfortunately was not able to compete on price hence ceased production in 1960 with the Star. The company then decided to  concentrate on the aircraft side of the business that most people remember  the name Armstrong for. They are still an affordable classic with its own club stores.
