a very short production run that saw little more than
twenty five cars leave the factory, the Latham F2 proved
to be a revolutionary and influential car.
Launched in 1987, the F2 is believed to have been the
first open-topped road car in the world to feature all-composite
monocoque construction (ie: no steel or chassis of any

and most were fitted with Triumph's award-winning 2

around 160-180 bhp when fitted to the F2, guaranteed
exhilarating acceleration and performance. This, combined

suspension, produced a car that offered its owners remarkable
handling as well as fast, practical motoring. The Latham
F2 ultimately became the inspiration for a remarkable

information about the Latham F2 and the company that
built it; a register of those cars that actually left
the workshops and are still driven on the roads today;
and a source of inspiration and support for owners and
enthusiasts wherever they may be.
