Here’s a brand that we haven’t heard from in quite some time: Avions Voisin. If you know about these guys, then you’re either way past your lean years or you’re a complete auto nut the likes of which we haven’t seen before.
Founded in 1905 as a plane manufacturer, Avions Voisin began producing cars in 1919, but only lasted 27 years before officially calling it quits in 1946. Decades after folding, the company is getting set to return to the game with the A-JT Concept, a car that was inspired by the brand’s history while also offering modern adaptations to keep it in line with the times. Specs and details behind the A-JT concept are still being kept in the dark.
What we do know is that the A-JT concept will not be classified as a supercar, but will instead fall in the same luxury range as the Audi A6 and will be sold as a limited-run vehicle, similar to the Bugatti Veyron.
Avions Voisin is scheduled to debut the first prototype in all its glory at the 2011 Auto Rai Motor Show in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in April 2011. We’ll make sure to scoop up all of the official details at that time, so stay tuned!
