Ask someone to name a French automaker and their reply will almost certainly be Peugeot
. However, there have been several others over the years. A case in point being Bugatti
, a French company that its now in the hands of the Volkswagen
Group. And then there's Deutsch-Bonnet, later known simply as DB, which was in business from 1938 until 1961. Founded just before the outbreak of World War II, the automaker first focused its attention on making lightweight race cars.
