The light car as we know it today owes much to Singer Motors, for they were one of the first firms to concentrate on this type of car and have expended considerable time and energy on its development over the years.

The Nine Roadster, Series 4A, illustrated here, is a four-seat light sports car in the Singer tradition and a well-tried favourite.

The coachbuilt body has a neat and businesslike appearance, while the raised facia contours behind the windscreen and the low door lines heighten its sporting character.

Colour finishes are in maroon with upholstery in Burgundy, black with signal red, signal red with signal red, grey with red and green with brown.
