Leon Motor Company is a multi-million dollar car company that focuses on producing sports cars for the western world. The company has acquired many smaller companies along the way, such as Velox, Gallus, and Hayai to appeal to customers across the world. Leon was founded in 1947 as a steel factory which produced panels and chassis for many popular car brands. In November 1952, the founder of the company, Doug Leon, after seeing many possible improvements in the chassis and panel design in the car manufacturers demands, he decided to attempt creating his own cars. Thus, the Leon Motor Legacy began. With the funds he gathered from his factory he employed a team of experienced designers to help him with designing his first automobile. By January 1953, Leon and his team had completed the design and development needed to start manufacturing, and in December the first Leon cars were released to the public. Currently, Leon produces sports cars able to compete against a wide range of cars such as Chevrolet and Ford, and all the way up to Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren.
