Jowett Jupiter
By 1949 the Jowett Javelin was on the market and Gerald Palmer had been persuaded back to Nuffield and his place at Jowett was taken by Roy C Lunn. The Jupiter came about as a sports car based on Javelin mechanics but developed jointly with ERA at Dunstable. Bodywork was designed by Jowett's Mr Korner and wrapped around a space-frame with engineering by Robert Eberan von Eberhorst who had designed the 1939 Auto Union GP cars. The Jupiter was exhibited at the 1950 London Motor Show and a development model won the 1½litre class and achieved a new record at the 1950 Le Mans 24hour race. 900 Jupiters were produced before Jowett pulled out of car production in 1954
