National Auto Collection: The Schlumpf Collection - Vintage

A collection of baby cars from the early vintage period.

The little blue car is a 1913 Peugeot Bebe, designed by Ettore Bugatti.

1913 Le Gui torpedo 82. A very rare French marque.

1906 Sage and 1907 Mercedes.

The 1906 Sage came with both a two seat 'summer' body and a 'winter' limousine body.

1905 Mercedes Simplex roadster.

1905 Mercedes Double Phaeton 28/50.

A 1910 Mors Type N closed tonneau in the front and at the rear, a 1909 Delaunay-Belleville F6 omnibus. This bus was used by the hotels of Nice to ferry guests to and from the railway station.

1906 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost. This example is built as a two seat cabriolet.

1919 Renault Type EU 'torpedo.' I'm a great fan of these magnificent, scuttle bonneted cars.

Can you name a Swiss car manufacturer? 1911 Piccard-Pictet limousine.

1911 Rochet-Schnieder torpedo.

Clement-Bayard torpedo.

1925 Citroen Type c3.

1925 Mercedes Type 28/95 torpedo. Ferdinand Porsche was behind the design of this magnificent beast.

This strange little three wheeler was built in Britain, originally intended as a gun tractor/carrier. It was too odd however to be really successful.
