Sports carsEdit

In addition they built a small number of road going sports cars developed on the Lea Francis Sports Chassis, which achieved considerable competition success. These were of types L2 and L3, and three examples of the stark Cycle Winged L3/SR Sports Racer. Two sports cars, based on the A Type Formula 2 cars, the ALSRs were also built for competition work. In 1962, Jack Fairman attempted to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 in a Connaught race car, but failed to find the necessary speed to make the field.

The name Connaught derives from Continental Autos, a garage in Send, Surrey, specialising in european sports cars such as Bugatti etc. where the cars were built.

In 2004, the Connaght name was revived by Connaught Motor Company for their Type D Syracuse and Type D-H hybrid supercars.
