Dream Cars 2

Voisin was originally an aeroplane company founded by Gabriel Voisin and his younger brother Charles by buying out fellow aviation pioneer Louis Blériot. After the death of Charles in an auto accident in 1912, his brother carried on in the business, and the company made aircraft for the Aéronautique Militaire during the Great War.

Following the war, Gabriel quit the plane biz and made cars for a couple decades under the name Avions Voisin.

The C25 Aérodyne cost more than the contemporary Bugatti Type 57.

Of the twenty-eight examples of the C25 that were produced, only eight featured the dramatic Aérodyne styling, with its disc wheels and retractable sunroof.
