JOWETT JUPITER REVIEW

The two-seater Jowett Jupiter was designed for two conflicting requirements. It was intended as a comfortable well-appointed touring car as well a car to go racing. Its big bore tubular chassis was designed by Professor Eberan-Eberhorst while at ERA; he was also responsible for the DB3 chassis. With rack and pinion steering and using the same suspension as the Javelin, and with the engine developed to over 60bhp, the Jupiter emerged as a lively comfortable car with advanced handling for its day. It had many successes in production car events including three Le Mans wins and the outright win of the 1951 Lisbon International Rally. The Jowett Jupiter chassis is made from a low-rusting steel with the eye-catching all-enveloping bodywork aluminium, and as the car was hand-made it has become a favourite for restorers; the survival rate is over 50% of the 901 cars built between 1950 and 1954. There are also some interesting examples with bodywork by coachbuilders such as Abbott, Beutler and Farina.
