Video: 1934 Avions Voisin C-25 Aerodyne visits Jay Leno garage
If you ask why is a 1934 model featured in the Jay Leno Garage show the answer is very simple: the 1934 Avions Voisin C-25 Aerodyne is the winner of this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The car was built by Avions Voisin - an automobile brand founded by aeronautical engineer Gabriel Voisin - so is no surprise why the Aerodyne is part car part plane. The car’s exterior design language is inspired by the Art Deco and streamlining movements so that it offers a sense of motion even standing still. The Voisin’s streamlined aluminum coachwork features a number of extraordinary details, including the marque’s striking signature bird-in-flight hood ornament, flowing skirted pontoon fenders and massive retractable arched roof.
This particular car belongs to Peter and Merle Mullin, founders of the world renowned Mullin Automotive Museum. There were only seven Avions Voisin C-25 Aerodyne and just four of them still exist today.
