2009 SECMA F16
Offered by Bonhams | Bicester, U.K. | May 22, 2021
SECMA (which stands of Societe d’Etude et Construction Mecanique Automobile) is a French microcar manufacturer that was founded in 1995 by Daniel Renard in Lambres, France. Many of their initial models were very small, with some essentially just looking like four-wheeler ATVs with doors.
The F16 was launched in 2009 and is a street-legal buggy-style sports car. Most of these French microcars are powered by like 20-horsepower lawnmower engines. Not this bad boy. It has a rear-mounted 1.6-liter Renault inline-four making 103 horsepower. It also has a five-speed manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive. Decent sporting credentials for a car weighing about 1,200 pounds.
There has since been a re-styled F16 Turbo model introduced. This naturally aspirated F16 actually looks kind of fun. And no one would know what in the world you were driving. It should sell for between $13,000-$17,000. Click here for more info and here for more from this sale.
Update: Sold $9,315.
