Sheffield Simplex Car

Sheffield Simplex Car

This is perhaps the most famous car made in Sheffield and it was produced at the Fitzwilliam Works in Tinsley.

The car was the idea of Earl Fitzwilliam, who thought Sheffield could produce the finest car in the world.

In 1913, The Times named the Simplex, “one of the best and most remarkable vehicles available, representing the highest point to which motor design has yet attained”.

This prototype is one of only three Simplex cars remaining, and is thought to be the last type of the car ever produced.
