Imperia TA-8 Sport

In August 1947, Imperia relaunched the manufacture of a model of its own design, the TA-8. It is a front-wheel drive similar to the pre-war models but the German Adler engine, which has become unavailable, is replaced by a Hotchkiss mechanism.

Imperia acquired in Paris the stock of engines that were initially intended for the Amilcar Compound. It is a 1340 cm³ (65 x 95 mm) in-line 4-cylinder engine with 45 hp and a three-gear transmission.

The TA-8 is available with three different body styles: two-door sedan, four-seater luxury convertible and two-seater Sport roadster. About a hundred units were manufactured until 1949. The TA-8 was the last Belgian private car.
