The highlight of the Auburn 12 was undoubtedly its engine which produced 160 bhp and enough torque to move even the heaviest bodies with ease. This was attached to a free-wheeling differential that disengaged the engine when the throttle was released. Furthermore the 12 was also equipped with an overdrive ‘Dual-Ratio’ axle gear that allowed for high top speeds and reduced fuel consumption.
