The name “100” came about because the car was able to break the 100 mph barrier. In October of 1955, the BN2 was introduced, and was similar to the BN1 in design, except with larger drum brakes and a new four-speed transmission with overdrive. During its production run, 3,924 examples of the BN2 were produced.Engine Type: OHVCylinders: 4Horsepower: 110Manufacturer and Coachbuilder:British Motors Corporation (Longbridge, England)Price When New: $3,275The Nethercutt Collection “Dialogue is a necessary evil.”—Fred Zinneman Semper & Adhuc is an independent French watch company whose modern designs are influenced by the Art Deco movement.
