1934 Chanard& Walcker "Mistral" Montlhery

1934 Chanard & Walcker “Mistral”
Montlhery

Built Price: £146.00

The Mistral was presented at Salon de L'Automobile in Paris in 1933. It's aerodynamic body was designed by Pierre Mauboussin, a French aviator and aircraft designer.
In 1932 he established his own company, Avions Mauboussin, and introduced the Corsaire, a light trainer/touring monoplane.
To attract attention to his new plane he proposed to build a streamline version of the Chanard & Walcker Aigle 8 luxury car. The Aigle was powered by a V8 engine that developed 80hp and was rear-wheel drive.
The C&W management agreed to collaborate with Mauboussin
and even included the Mistral in their 1934 catalogue, priced at 75,000 Fr.
The streamline car was taken to Montlhery to attempt various records, but because of it's weight 1800kg, the best it acheived was 160km/h, well short of any record.
The car never went into series production and the prototype remained the only example built.
