MARS / GERMANY  ( 1904 - 1912 )

The "Mars - Werke AG" began in Nuremberg in 1904 with the production of so-called Voituretten. MARS automobiles were first presented to the public at the motor vehicle exhibition in Leipzig in 1906. 

They built two and four seaters and commercial trucks ( "Geschäftswagen"). The cars had a friction drive.

Also due to licensing disputes with Maurer Automobilwerke about the friction drive automobile manufacturing was discontinued around 1912. Until 1957 MARS motorcycles came from Nuremberg.
