Description: 1901 Panhard Racing Machine
Engine: 4-Cylinder Panhard
Bore: 3.58 inches
Stroke: 5.11 inches
Displacement: 192.3 Cubic Inches
Between 1895 and 1903 almost every motor race of consequence either took place in France or was of French inspiration. During this period speeds of the competing cars rose dramatically from the sputtering 18 miles per hour of Emile Levassor's 1.2 liter Panhard to the thunderous 90 miles per hour on the 13.7 liter Panhard that De Knyff drove in the Gordon Bennett Cop of 1903.

This Panhard is the same vintage as the one Etienne Giraud and his mechanic drove to victory in the 1901 Paris to Berlin race at an average speed of 35.5 miles per hour.
