The Black Prince was a British 4 wheeled cyclecar made in small numbers in 1920 by Black Prince Motors of Barnard Castle, Durham.

The car was designed by H. G. Wright and was available with either a single or twin cylinder Union air-cooled engine rated at 2.75 horse power. Drive was through a two-speed belt system although gear transmission was an option.[1]

Both the open body and the chassis were made of wood. The flexibility of this was used as suspension.[1]

The number made is not known but at least two survive.[2][3]
