Tune in to our Facebook page on Wed 16 Jun at 1pm for our next online event!

Find out all about the Sheffield-Simplex car with our Head of Historic Engineering, Eddy Foster.

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’.

The prototype held at Kelham Island Museum is one of only three Simplex cars remaining and is thought to be the last type of the car ever produced.

If you can’t make the live broadcast, the video will be available to watch later on our Facebook Live page or on our Sheffield Museums Live archive page.
