The SS90 was a sports car with six-cylinder side-valve Standard engine of 2663 c.c. 2,642 mm long, the chassis was a shortened version of the one used on the SS1, and was also supplied by Standard. The cars rapidly gained attention for their elegant sporting styling, but were not well regarded by the sporting fraternity as their performance did not match their appearance. True sports car performance had to wait for the SS 100, which had similar styling and suspension but more powerfull engine.
