Richard-Brasier was not named after a guy named Richard Brasier. In fact, it was named for Charles-Henri Brasier, formerly of Panhard and Mors, and Georges Richard, he of his own eponymous company. The partnership was founded in 1902, but Richard left the company during 1905 and went on to found Unic. Brasier soldiered on alone.

This Model D is from the final bit of Richard-Brasier production and is powered by a 6.5-liter inline-four that was good for almost 60 horsepower. These were well-performing cars in their day, hence probably why it was sought out for the Mullin collection, from which it is being offered.

The car carries coachwork by Deshayes Freres & Courtois. Gooding & Company are testing the waters at Amelia with some of the less valuable/desirable Mullin cars before the “big auction” at the museum later this year. You can read more about this car here.
