This is the second volume of a series of publications on the De Dion Bouton company. The first volume: 'An Illustrated Guide to Type & Specification 1899-1904', published in 2016, documented the development of single and twin motor vehicles in the first five years of production.
During these five years, fourteen single cylinder and two twin cylinder Type vehicles were manufactured.
By 1905 the motor car industry, barely a decade old, was going through a period of dynamic change with the early stages of mass production, improved machine tooling, different types of customers emerging, new commercial opportunities and rising competition, especially from America. In the years from 1905 to 1914 De Dion Bouton met these challenges with a mixture of high energy, innovation and entrepreneurship, launching eighty-two different Types of vehicles in single, twin, four and eight-cylinder configuration.
This book sets out to trace the course of vehicle development, summarises the essential technical information, and clearly identifies the characteristics of each Type.
