Coachbuilt in 1913 and bought new by Monsieur Lefranc of Joinville, France. This car remained in his ownership, kept at the family home, until 1989 when it passed onto the present custodian. Built using the highest quality materials and bristling with design and technical advances this is one of the very first of the Sizaire - Berwick marque. In 1913 the 20hp model was comparable only to the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost and this car is believed to be a unique example with its Henri Labourdette built berline body.
As the earliest and one of the best preserved Sizaire - Berwick’s the car is well documented. Mentioned in the July 1957 Motorsport synopsis of the marque as “in perfect condition” and verified by Maurice Sizaire himself as the oldest in existence in the world, January 1965.
Naturally the car is matching numbers and with superb preserved upholstery still in original fabric. A sympathetic and comprehensive mechanical restoration was carried out in 2014 by a French pre-war specialist. This truly special luxury motorcar is now offered for sale.
