Offered by Bonhams | Paris, France | February 1, 2023
Brennabor-Werke AG was a German automobile company that was founded by the Reichstein brothers in 1871 to produce child carriages. A decade later they got into bicycles, with the Brennabor name first appearing in 1892. Motorcycles arrived in 1901, and to-order automobiles became available two years later.
Actual production started in 1908, and this Type B was produced just three years after that. The B was available from 1911 through 1913 and is powered by a 1.3-liter inline-four rated at about 12 horsepower. Top speed was around 35 mph.
This car spent decades upon decades in the U.K. before entering the collection from which it is offered. It’s been regularly used in various rallies and events and now has a pre-sale estimate of $24,000-$27,000. Click here for more info.
