It is a good sized 10 hp 4-cylinder engine with a blind side valve.The equipment is complete with electric lights, dynamo and starter.

The rate of Dion was higher than cars great series.

Our De Dion Bouton torpedo is one of the famous 10 hp 20s'. In 1983, is an amateur Garenne-Colombes who purchased the car, which was a ruin.
. Elegant and well proportioned, this classic Torpedo. a beautiful restoration. Regarding the de Dion Bouton, a total dismantling absolutely was made and a restoration from the frame depth was started. Everything has been redone, revised or reconstructed according to its origin. Electricity in cotton thread, nickel plated parts, bearings, pins, springs, all mechanical, engine, gearbox, including a bridge bevel nine, brakes ... nothing was left to chance or forgotten. Even the original wheels were retained despite the price of tires heels at the time.
The upholstery is a high quality leather carpets and hood have been redone by Antoine, who worked for the saddle Body Lecoq. Extremely consistent, one sprain was made some time after the end of the restoration, replacement of the front axle without brake axle braked to improve safety and braking, this improvement could be made at the time.
One story that struck me was when returning from a rally night we broke down in a motorway with a Citroën DS that pulled the trailer with Dion. We unloaded the De Dion, pulled the team to leave the motorway and after up everything on the side of the road, we came back with Dion for the last 30 miles!
It is amazing to see that almost thirty years after its restoration, the De Dion ID is still beautiful.
The next owner will also enjoy this wonderful and elegant car.
