Description

In 1882, the company De Dion-Bouton was created and with it, the entire French car industry. In 1889, the first combustion was invented by the Marquis Albert de Dion and Georges Bouton.

The first car wasn't made available until 1899. This was the Model D, vis-à-vis (face to face). 

The Peugeot Bébé or Baby was built in Audincourt, France. The Type 69 was unique in that it used rack and pinion steering.

Following the fall of the iron curtain in 1989, an old Opel 10/20 was discovered in the barn of a farm in East Germany. The car needed substantial refurbishment. After extensive research, the car was finally fully restored in 1998.

This car had a very simple design, allowing theRenault AX to be mass produced. It was a popular car, and was sold at a modest price for an car with two-seater chassis bodywork.
