Persu Experimentallimousine 1924 by Autocult
Aurel Persu was a Romanian engineer and a true visionary. In 1914 the German authorities awarded him a medal for his work on the potential for space travel, but it was this slightly more down to earth machine that was truly ground breaking, the first car to have the wheels smoothed into the bodywork, which he received a patent for in 1924. The styling was inspired by a falling raindrop and the end result is a very unusual looking machine. The narrow track helped keep the drag co-efficient below levels designers today are only just achieving and there was no differential. The only colour images that we have been able to find are hand touched and show the car in either dark green or brown the latter on a 2010 postage stamp! The car survives but has no paint left on it, so we can’t be sure if the excellent black paint is authentic or not.

A relatively new maker of very well finished resincast models, established in 2015. Very imaginative choice of subjects, often concentrating on the more eccentric episodes in motoring history! Production limited to 333 pieces of each subject, which often means that we get one delivery and that is it, so pre-orders strongly recommended!! Made in China for Germany.
