The Vauxhall 30-98 is a car manufactured by Vauxhall at Luton, Bedfordshire from 1913 to 1927. In its day, its best-known configuration was theVauxhall Velox (velox, veloc– being Latin for “swift”/”fleet” and the source of English velocity) standard 4-seater with open tourer body. Vauxhall’s own description was the 30-98 hp Vauxhall-Velox sporting car. The 30-98 is also known to enthusiasts by Vauxhall’s chassis code E.

In 1995 it was authoritatively described as one of Britain’s best-known sports cars and in the mid-20th century reported by Automobile Quarterly to be affectionately known as the last of the Edwardians and decreed as the first and perhaps the best British sports car.
