60. Darracq 200hp

60. Darracq 200hp


By 1905 it established branches in the UK, Spain and Italy and then expanded into both cars and aviation engines. In 1920 the British arm became the majority shareholder in Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq (STD Motors) which was sold to the Rootes group in 1935 such that Darracq ceased to be a distinct marque, instead becoming a badge-engineered Sunbeam.  In 1900, the company produced its first vehicle with an internal combustion engine by Ribeyvolles, this was a 6.5 hp voiture legère powered by a 785 cc single and featured shaft drive and three speed column gear change. While not as successful as hoped, one hundred were sold. In 1902 Darracq signed a contract with Adam Opel to jointly produce vehicles in the German Empire under licence, with the brand name “Opel Darracq”.

In 1905, the company expanded to Britain, incorporating the A. Darracq Company Limited with a capitalization of £ 650,000.–

Darracq won the 1905 and 1906 Vanderbilt Cup at Long Island, New York.

Here we see an Darracq 200hp in the 1907 Coppa Velocit di Brescia.
