Warne Car Co

Offices at 152 Shaftsbury, Avenue, London

Built cyclecars in the late Edwardian era.

In the London " Evening News," Mr. John Phillimore says in regard to the running of the "WARNE CAR" -
"The absence of vibration, too, was marked, both at high as well as low revolution rate. I soon felt that the car was capable of good speed, and would prove a fine hill climber. This was amply proved when we tackled Brockley Hill. Without any undue 'rushing' we went up in fine style.

"THIS WAS THE BEST PERFORMANCE I HAVE YET DONE ON A CYCLECAR.

In traffic she is all one wants, being flexible and possessing a most surprising speed in picking up. The "WARNE" car, the TRUE cyclecar, embodies motorcycle simplicity and economy with car comfort and cleanliness. The same service can be obtained from a "WARNE" car costing under £100, as from a car costing £400, at about one-tenth the running cost.
