AGA / GERMANY

AGA emblem
Finally I´am able to present you an emblem from AGA / Germany built in my home town Berlin.
In 1919 the AGA started their car production with a small 1.4 liter with 4-cylinder 16 hp engine. In the mid - twenties they sold quite well, offering a better 20hp engine. So there were a lot of AGA taxi cabs in Berlin. The last AGA was the AGA - SPEZIAL still proudly presented at the International Automobil exhibition in Berlin in 1928.
But there was never a regular production and AGA closed the car production still the same year.

Der AGA- Wagen, published in 2011.

  1. That is no radiator emblem but a advertisment-sticker. Best regards Dr. Merz, author of the only AGA-book ever
