Avions Voisin C20 (1931 - 1934)

this example was exported to Brazil with additional cooling

Shown for the first time in the Paris Salon in 1930, the C20 Voisin with its fabulous sleeve valve V12 engine confirmed the place of Avions Voisin as one of the world's thoroughbred cars. The chassis was underslung enabling the car to remain low and giving exceptional weight distribution. This resulted in the passengers being separated by the high propshaft tunnel running through the interior.
