ELITE / GER

The German ELITE started  car production in Brand / Erbisdorf ( Saxonia ) after WW1.
As the name suggested they offered luxury cars. Car production ceased in 1929. Only small quantities of cars were built so you have look years for an original ELITE emblem.



The ELITE of 1924 with V-shaped radiator had three emblems: two on the radiator and one on the gas cap
