Carroserie D'Avant, Chamonix, France, Est. 1946
The French automaker was founded by Pierre D’Avant, eldest son of a machine worker and a seamstress. He grew up in the French countryside after the Great War and studied engineering. After his father’s passing he took over the family business, training and employing his younger siblings, and grew the small machine shop into an engine factory by 1923 implementing his original designs, supplying power units to regional motorcycle manufacturers. Pierre designed his first automobile, the Fantome, in 1940, powered by his first 4-cylinder engine.
This thread is dedicated the cars and history of Carroserie D’Avant, a work of fiction inspired by real history and events. It is one of a few Automation car companies I’ve created in my time with the game. My original thread was dedicated to Bronx Motor Co. as an engine supplier to various other carmakers in that universe, but I decided to reboot that thread and spinoff each company with their own dedicated thread inhabiting the same universe.
I hope you all enjoy my creations!
