1903 De Dion-Bouton Type S (01)

1903 De Dion-Bouton Type S (01)

De Dion-Bouton was a French automobile manufacturer and railcar manufacturer operating from 1883 to 1932. The company was founded by the Marquis Jules-Albert de Dion, Georges Bouton (1847–1938) and his brother-in-law Charles Trépardoux.

The company was formed after de Dion in 1881 saw a toy locomotive in a store window and inquired about the toymakers, to build another. Engineers Bouton and Trépardoux had been making a starvation-living on scientific toys at a shop in the Passage de Léon, close to the "rue de la Chapelle" in Paris. Trépardoux had long dreamed of building a steam car, but neither could afford it. De Dion, already inspired by steam (though in the form of rail locomotives) and with plenty of money, agreed, and De Dion, Bouton et Trépardoux was formed in Paris in 1883. This became the de Dion-Bouton automobile company, the world’s largest automobile manufacturer for a time, becoming well known for their quality, reliability, and durability.

De Dion-Bouton war zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts eine der erfolgreichsten Automobilmarken.

Die beiden Franzosen Albert de Dion und Georges Bouton taten sich 1882 zusammen, um zunächst dampfbetriebene Fahrzeuge wie La Marquise zu produzieren.

Der Firma gelangen einige Innovationen, so wurde 1890 ein einzylindriger benzinbetriebener Motor patentiert, außerdem wurde 1893 die De-Dion-Achse erfunden.

Mit einem dampfbetriebenen De Dion-Wagen gewann Albert de Dion das Rennen Paris–Rouen 1894. 1895 stieg man aber endgültig auf Benzin als Antriebsstoff um. Der Motor war so erfolgreich, dass auch viele andere Marken mit einem De Dion-Bouton-Motor angetrieben wurden.

1900 war die Marke mit 400 erzeugten Wagen und 3.200 Motoren der größte Automobilhersteller weltweit. Rückgrat der Firma war noch immer die einzylindrige Voiturette, 1910 gelang die Herstellung eines 35 PS starken V8-Motors. 1913 wurde der letzte Einzylinderwagen gebaut.

Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg begann der Niedergang der Firma. 1932 baute die Firma das letzte Auto. Die LKW-Produktion endete 1952.

Jeep

Jeep

Jeep é uma marca registada atualmente em nome da Chrysler LLC Group. O termo jipe virou sinônimo de automóveis destinados ao uso fora de estrada, ou off road, normalmente com tração nas quatro rodas. A palavra jipe é um aportuguesamento do termo em inglês jeep, derivado da pronúncia em inglês da sigla GP, que significa general purpose ou "uso geral", embora essa não seja a origem da marca Jeep.

O veículo surgiu durante o esforço de guerra americano, no final dos anos 1930 e início dos 40, em que era necessário um veículo leve, com capacidade de superar terrenos difíceis e com obstáculos, e com capacidade para levar alguns homens e armamentos. Ao final da segunda guerra, a Willys requisitou o registro do nome Jeep.

O primeiro protótipo foi o Bantan BRC cuja traseira é semelhante às traseiras do Jeep Willys e do Jeep Ford, mas a frente é arredondada, bem de acordo com o design típico do final dos anos 1930.[carece de fontes] Está na mente coletiva que o primeiro Jeep foi o Willys MB ou simplesmente "42" (de 1942), mas isso é um erro. Antes dele, outros modelos de Jeep foram enviados para as frentes de combate, como o Willys Quad, o Bantan BRC 40, o Willys MA e o Ford GP ou Pigmy.[carece de fontes] O veículo da Ford era denominado "GP" e pode ser confundido com a origem da denominação Jeep.

Segundo a Chrysler do Brasil, o nome Jeep deve-se ao personagem de histórias em quadrinhos chamado "Jeep". Em 16 de março de 1936 a personagem conhecido pelo nome de Eugene the Jeep foi criado pelo cartunista E. C. Segar para fazer companhia ao Popeye. Ele era do tamanho de um cachorro e nativo da África e capaz de passar para a quarta dimensão. Ele resolvia todos os problemas do Popeye e da Olivia Palito e sempre falava a verdade. Este personagem cativou o público e se tornou rapidamente popular. O termo "Hey, he’s a real Jeep!" ou "Ei, ele é um verdadeiro Jeep!" era constantemente empregado para pessoas que demonstravam uma capacidade superior. [carece de fontes]

A ligação entre o nome Jeep e a tração 4×4 é creditado ao piloto de teste da Willys, Irvin Hausmann, que escolheu o nome para o seu veículo em 1940 durante testes para o exército americano. Até então eram referenciados por outros nomes como Bug, Blitz Buggy, Puddle Jumper, Peep ou Quad. O nome Jeep foi trazido a público por Katherine Hillyer no jornal Washington Daily News, em 16 de março de 1941, quando relatou que ao final de uma demonstração alguém da platéia perguntou a Hausmann como ele chamava aquele veículo e ele respondeu: "It’s a Jeep!", ou "É um Jeep!".[carece de fontes]

No Brasil, a Vemag produziu o Candango, entre 1958 e 1963, uma versão sob licença do DKW Munga. A Vemag tentou lançar esse veículo no Brasil denominando-o como Jeep DKW-Vemag, mas a Willys detinha os direitos sobre a denominação Jeep e daí surgiu o nome …

Cadillac is a luxury vehicle marque owned by General Motors Company. Cadillac vehicles are sold in over 50 countries and territories, but mainly in North America.
Cadillac is currently the oldest American automobile manufacturer and among the oldest automobile brands in the world. Founded in 1902 as the Cadillac Automobile Company, it was purchased in 1909 by General Motors and over the next 30 years established itself as America’s premier luxury car. Cadillac pioneered many accessories in automobiles, including full electrical systems, the clashless manual transmission and the steel roof. The brand developed three engines, one of which (the V8) set the standard for the American automotive industry.
Cadillac was purchased by the General Motors (GM) conglomerate in 1909. Cadillac became General Motors’ prestige division, devoted to the production of large luxury vehicles. The Cadillac line was also GM’s default marque for "commercial chassis" institutional vehicles, such as limousines, ambulances, hearses and funeral home flower cars, the last three of which were custom-built by aftermarket manufacturers. Cadillac does not produce any such vehicles in their factory.
In July 1917, the United States Army needed a dependable staff car and chose the Cadillac Type 55 Touring Model after exhaustive tests on the Mexican border. Two thousand three hundred fifty of the cars were supplied for use in France by officers of the American Expeditionary Force during World War I.[5]
Pre-World War II Cadillacs were well-built, powerful, mass-produced luxury cars aimed at an upper class market. In the 1930s, Cadillac added cars with V12 and V16 engines to their range, many of which were fitted with custom coach-built bodies; these engines were remarkable at the time for their ability to deliver a combination of high power, silky smoothness and quietness.
Automobile stylist Harley Earl, whom Cadillac had recruited in 1926 and who was to head the new Art and Color section starting in January 1928, designed for 1927 a new, smaller "companion" car to the Cadillac which he called the La Salle, after another French explorer, René Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle. That marque remained in production until 1940.

The Coupe deVille (sometimes spelled Coupe Deville or Coupe DeVille) was a model of Cadillac from 1949 through 1993.
The Coupe deVille was introduced by Cadillac late in the 1949 model year. Part of the Cadillac Series 62 line, it was a closed, two-door coupé, Cadillac’s first pillarless hardtop. Intended as a prestige model, at $3,497 it was one of the most expensive models of the Series 62 line. It was luxuriously trimmed, with leather upholstery and chrome ‘bows’ in the headliner to simulate the ribs of a convertible top. The first-year Coupe deVille sold 2,150 units, but 1950 sales were more than double, and 1951 more than doubled those of the previous year. By 1961 it was one of the company’s most popular models, with annual sales above 20,000.
Cadillac De Ville nomenclature always followed a tradition: Two doors with steel roofs were always Coupe De Ville, four doors were always …
