This was a car by Daimler in England that copied the PL's designs. Daimler cars came to England by Frederick Simms and met Gottlib Daimler in Germany 1890. Then came the agreement that Simms would import a motor. This 6 seater "bus" was also built in England by Daimler. Therefore, this is known as the vehicles often online mentioned for an English coach. In England was C.S. Rolls dealer of that brand. Then Daimler cars alone remained in England

Panhard-Levassor Pheaton Tonneau 1902 type B. Ref. 1, 4 cyl 2411 cc 10 CV hp 65 km/h.
1886 the French took over the patent rights of Sarazin of Daimler's engine. They was good friends with Lavassor. However, he died 1887 and Lavassor married the widow. It meant that Lavassor got the French patent rights to the Daimler engine. Now there was every possibility that the firm could start car manufactureing. It had a joinery , which at the time, built machines for wood, there were a number of knowledgeable employees in woodworking. The only engine manufacturer of importance was the Benz and Daimler. Daimler engine was of V2 type. The DeDion's engine could run at 900 rpm was not on sale until 1895. (cont. next picture)
Anhard Levassor Tonneau Type B
Panhard-Levassor Pheaton Tonneau 1902. Ref. 1
4 cyl 2411 cc 10 CV hp 65 km/h.
 The first car that PL made had all the characteristics of a modern car has even today. Engine in front, 4-speed transmission, traction on the rear wheels, with a chain, a steering wheel for steering and 1895, it had purchased the Maybachs float feed carburetor. It participated in the competition Paris, Rouen. Cars had open gearboxes. This was for obvious reasons already to the following year to change to closed ones. Panhard lived on his high engine knowledge and with this gap led the market. This meant that development stopped and Panhard carswas struck by conservatism after about 1910. However, commpany survived until 1967 when the Citroen basically had bought the entire Panhard company and the last Panhard cars were manufactured. Dyna Panhard.
Georges Richard 1894. Ref. 1
Georges Richard 1894. Det. Ref. 1 

Georges Richard 1863-1922, was a French racing driver and even an industry pioneer. He started a car dealership for manufacturing in Paris suburb Ivry Port 1897 along with his brother. 1895 they had learned enough and produced their own model. (cont. next picture)

Georges Richard 1894. Ref. 1.Detail.
From the beginning they copied Benz cars. 1900 produced cars under licence from the firm Vivinus in Belgium. Around 1901, he became a business partner with Henri Brasier. During 1905, 1906 started a new firm named Unic. See below
Georges Richard Tonneay Poney 1901. Ref. 1
Georges Richard Tonneau Poney 1901. Ref. 1. Georges Richard 1897 see below. The model was given the name Poney as they were easy to operate and that the weight was low compared to other brands.
Benz Victoria 1893. Ref. 1
Benz Victoria Vis-a-Vis 1893. Ref. 1
Benz big problem with the first car was steering. He was forced to build a "dreirad". This solved the Benz on the model called Victoria. He developed a system of kingpin steering. This gave the opportunity for the front wheels to turn in different angles. This system is basically the prevalent today. The solution was that wheel turn around a relative to a vertical, horizontal and inclined "king pin". Of course everyone has heard of camber and caster angles without really knowing what it mean. This got the Benz patent,  forcing other manufacturers with various advanced solutions. See picture. The new front end benefits demonstrated by Theodor Freiherr von Liebieg 1894 when he drove from Reichenberg in Bohemia via Mannheim to Reims and back.(cont. next picture)
Benz Victoria 1893. Ref. 1
Benz Victoria 1893 Vis a Vis det. Ref. 1
  A run which of course was a pure marketing show in 2 ways. Theodor would prove the car's economic opportunities, and Benz would get investment money. To the public it proved the car's safety. Despite this, the market was not yet positive for buying cars. Only a few Victoria were sold. Possibly, it may be due to the lack of rubber wheels. Air rubber rings did not come until 1898. The engine was 1 cyl. with bore 150 and stroke of 165. Displacement was 2915 cc. Note that the Bugatti Museum has no copy of the Benz "Dreirad".

Benz Vis-A-Vis type Ideal 1897. Ref. 1 
It gave 5 HP at 700 rpm. Because of  imbalance higher RPM than about 700 was not allows. It was De Dion that solved this problem. The top speed was 35 km/h and fuel consumption was 2 L/10 km (on the road) the cooling system held 160 l!! Benz production figures were only 69 cars between 1885 and 1893. Exports to England required a softer ignition system. The law of red flag! This meant that in front of a car, a person with red flag warning was walking. This law was removed 1896

This model was equipped with a very original system, with which every speed was controlled with separate pedals. 4 pieces in total. It required a certain level of driving skill. When the car wasn't paid off anymore, it was decided to form an Automobile Club in France together with Count De Dion and baron Zuzlen. Ref. 1.

1886  Sarazin got the patent rights for  Daimler's engine. He was good friends with Lavassor. However, Sarazin died 1887 and Lavassor married the widow. It meant Lavassor now owned the rights to French patent of Daimler engine. Now there was every possibility that the firm could start car manufacture cars. It had a motor, as the company built mostly of wood, there were a number of knowledgeable employees in wood processing to make the coachwork. The only engine manufacturer of importance was Benz. Daimler engine was of V2 type. The Dion's engine could run at 900 rpm, came not until 1895.(cont. next picture)

Engine in front, 4-speed transmission and traction on the rear wheels, with a chain, a steering wheel for steering and 1895, it had purchased the Maybach's float carburettor. It participated in the competition Paris, Rouen. Cars had open gearboxes. This was for obvious reasons already to the following year. Panhard lived long on his engine knowledge and with this he controlled the market. This meant that development stopped and Panhard cars led by conservatism after about 1910. However, survived until 1967 when the Panhard  basically had bought the entire company by Citroen and the last Panhardbilarna were produced.

Allers car parade wrote about Bugatti cars 1947.
Ettore was born in Italy, and since then he has been both German and French citizen, because he then 1900 had their factory in the controversial Molsheim (or Alsace, as one might say nowadays). Bugatti was from the beginning aracing driver and won with a Bugatti car Italy's greatest road race Verona-Brescia-Manlova.
For a year because hespecialized entirely on building race cars. In addition to this specialty, he has built elegant, fast, and very expensive sports cars.
Bugattis biggest success Ettore Bugatti  won with 1924 model years. This model the Bugatti 35B, 35C.  dominated European racing world in the years 1936-1931 and was well up in front even after 1931 when the bimotore Alfa took the lead. Bugatti 35B had with 60 mm bore and 100 mm in stroke, model C had only 88 in bore. It was 2 litres or 2,3 liters, but because the smaller engine was "square" and could withstand higher engine speeds were both about as fast. Here in Sweden have Bugatti been driving 167 km/h at straight road in Ystad sand forrest. 200 km/h is nothing extraordinary for a two liter wagon.
Bimotore Alfa went up in approximately 220 km/hour in 1931 and became sanabbare with the years, and the 1939 annual 1.5 liter Mercedes made the note about 280 km/h. .
Bugatti however had an amazing road holding ability. The rigid frame and suspension made the car and with a talent driver at the wheel, able to defeat the faster but more fragile Alfa-Romeo and Delage race cars. Bugatti won 1045 victories during year 1926, and in 1927 won the mark 806 wins. When the Germans came with their racing cars 1934-1939, it was as if Ettore Bugatti lost the craving. He began instead to build sports cars.

(Note. Bugatti had begun his project, in the early 1930 's, with the high-speed train that was run with Royale engine, which was made of 25 copies and only 6 cars made. There was not enough time to indulge in fast cars.)

2.3 liter engines have been used for some sports cars, but a base engine was designed the 1933 with 3 liter. For this Ettore Bugatti built a series of elegant luxury cars. Typical features of these have been the wing profile used for the fenders-the. Compare for example, Buick or Cadillac 1947. Bugatti has also pushed  the two colour paintings. We have been able to see paintings in black and white, black and yellow, green and beige. Bold statements and striking effect.
