The Higham Special, aka "Chitty 4", was Louis Zborowski's largest car. Using a 450 hp V-12 Liberty aero engine of 27 litres capacity, with a gearbox and chain-drive from a pre-war Blitzen Benz, it was the largest capacity racing car ever to run at Brooklands. Still not fully developed by the time of Zborowski's death in November 1924, it was purchased from his estate by J. G. Parry-Thomas for the sum of £125.
Parry-Thomas rechristened the car Babs and rebuilt it with four Zenith carburettors and his own design of pistons.
1926 April: Parry-Thomas used the car to win the Land speed record at 171.02 mph.
1927 In a further attempt on 3 March, Parry-Thomas was killed. Babs was buried at Pendine Sands in Wales
The car was restored and is now on display at the Pendine Museum of Speed.
