1899 Leon Bollee For Sale

Léon Bollée Automobiles was founded in 1895 in Le Mans. In 1896 it patented and began manufacturing the three-wheeled vehicles he had invented in 1895 which he called the Voiturette.The position of the passenger, at the front, earned the Voiturette the nickname "Mother-in-law killer" ("Tue Belle-mère", in French). These had a horizontal motor and were equipped with rubber tires. A new model with many modifications was brought to the 1897 Paris-Dieppe race, driven by Paul Jamin, and the Paris-Trouville race and won both events with respective speeds of 24 mph (39 km/h) and 28 mph (45 km/h). This is an 1899 example.

In very good condition and has finished the London to Brighton Veteran Run.
