1971 – 1975 Opel Ascona A 19 SR (02)

1971 - 1975 Opel Ascona A 19 SR (02)

The Opel Ascona is a mid-sized car produced by Opel. It had three generations produced from 1970 to 1988. In motorsport, the Ascona 400 rally car driven by Walter Röhrl won the World Rally Championship drivers’ title in the 1982 season.

The Ascona took its name from the lakeside resort of that name in Ticino, Switzerland, and already in the 1950s a special edition of the Opel Rekord P1 was sold as an Opel Ascona in Switzerland, where the name was again used in 1968 for a locally adapted version of the Opel Kadett B into which the manufacturers had persuaded a 1.7-litre engine borrowed from the larger Rekord model of the time.[1] The Opel Ascona A launched in 1970 and sold across Europe was, however, the first mainstream Opel model to carry the name.

The Ascona was introduced in September 1970 and ended production in August 1988, to be replaced by the Opel Vectra A.

Der Opel Ascona bezeichnet die automobile Mittelklasse von Opel zwischen 1970 und 1988. Der Name Ascona stammt vom gleichnamigen Dorf am Lago Maggiore in der italienischsprachigen Schweiz.

Schon Ende der 1950er Jahre wurden in der Schweiz einige Sondermodelle des Olympia Rekord P1 als Ascona bezeichnet. Außerdem gab es Ende der 1960er Jahre eine besondere Ausstattungsvariante des Kadett B als Ascona 1700 in der Schweiz.

Nachfolger des Opel Ascona ist der Opel Vectra.

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.
