Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1907 De Dion Bouton 8HP For Sale.
Shown in fully restored condition this really is a stunning example. Every aspect of the car has been meticulously gone through with great attention to detail including keeping the original panel work to the car.
All brass work is in great condition with stunning oil lamps and horn fitted to the front.
The four-seater coachwork is furnished in black leather upholstery and is in magnificent condition both in the front and rear compartments.
The engine is presented in the same condition as the exterior and starts and runs beautifully.
This car comes with an extensive file, documenting the history and bills throughout the restoration and is offered perfect and useable condition.
Although it was Karl Benz who first made the motor car a viable proposition his primitive slow-revving engines and designs were left on the starting blocks when Panhard brought in the Système Panhard, a design that was to mould the future of the motor car for the next century, and when De Dion Bouton introduced their fast-revving engines in the last decade of the 19th Century.
Early rear-engined De Dion Boutons, gave way to a new generation of front-engined cars for the 1902 season, again single-cylinder models with atmospheric inlet valve and mechanical exhaust valve. De Dion's gearbox was virtually foolproof for the first time car driver, the fast-revving engines were supremely reliable and De Dion back-up and service was second-to-none.
This car so typifies the front-engined De Dion Bouton introduced for the 1902 season but reflects so many of the improvements during the period 1902 to 1907, not least of which is the three-speed gearbox.
