C10 (1924)

In view of the lack of reliable information about the mysterious 'Petit Laboratoire' that contested the 1924 ACF grand Prix at Lyon, we have to rely on educated guesswork.

According to René Bellu in 'Toutes Les Voisin' it was a 10HP, the same horsepower rating as the Voisin C7, which was launched after the Grand Prix in the summer of 1924.

A final test of the robustness of the firm's new production engine, perhaps? At any rate, the little car failed to cover itself in glory, retiring very early in the race.

An interesting information (source S. Pozzoli) : this little Voisin shall have run in some hill-climbs after the Lyon GPACF, without its wings and windscreen, as testified on the photo below.

Presumed specifications

The C10's appearance alongside the C8/9 in the October 1924 catalogue indicates that it may have been available for public purchase on special order (as the C6 of the previous year had been). Unlike the C6, however, there's no evidence that any found there way into private hands.
