ZÜST / ITALY

ZÜST radiator emblem

The Italian ZÜST  company started car production in 1906. They offered cars and trucks. In 1908 they participated at the Paris to Pekin race and finished  third. In 1908 the first ZÜST truck was built and the Italian army ordered 600 military trucks. But this was not enough and they closed before the end of WWI in 1917 and the company was sold to OM.
