ROSENGART / FRANCE

Lucien Rosengart started his car production in 1928 with a licence of the famous AUSTIN Seven, a small four cylinder car.  In 1933 he bought a licence  of the German ADLER, a front-drive car.
Later the ROSENGART Super traction was built with a CITROEN engine.
After WWII  Mr. Rosengart  offered a car with a small flat twin engine called ARIETTE.
But he failed to compete with PEUGEOT, RENAULT and PANHARD.
The factory was closed in 1955.

Nomen est omen:  you see a rose on every ROSENGART emblem.
