History of the Voisin C25
Gabriel Voisin, an aviation pioneer, established Voisin. In the 1920s and 1930s, this French business created just a few vehicles, the most famous of which was the C25 Aerodyne. It was not only designed in the fashionable Art Deco style of the 1930s, but it also had an aerodynamic body constructed of aluminium and influenced by the world of aeronautics. Gabriel Voisin had, after all, been building aeroplanes for a few years. The C25 also had several novel features, such as a "floating" windshield with no top frame and adjustable shock absorbers.
The C25 Aerodyne was speedy, too, with either a 100-horsepower inline-six or a 113-horsepower V-12 engine. However, it was also incredibly pricey. It was far more costly than the more prestigious Bugatti Type 57, which was priced from 88,000 Francs. As a result, Voisin could not find many buyers, and just 28 automobiles were produced between 1934 and 1937.
