BENZ SÖHNE / Germany

In 1906 when Carl Benz left the BENZ & Cie Company he had founded,  he started a new factory together with his sons Richard and Eugen. The start was very difficult. Only prototypes were built until 1908.  In 1913 a car with sleeve valves engine was offered. Car production  ceased in 1924.
It seems that only two BENZ and SÖHNE cars survives today.
