 This beautiful large Wolseley Limousine is an M5 model, built in 1912 and delivered to the Shuttleworth Family in July 1912 - it is fitted with a 24hp in-line six cylinder engine, giving the car a top speed of 50mph despite the heavy coach built body, and cost the Shuttleworth's £803 and 15 shillings. As can be seen it is a fantastic example of a prestigious motor car of the period with no expense spared in the manufacture.
