Brichet Carrosserie

1922 - 1933

The Brichet Carrosserie in Geneva built its bodies between 1920 and 1933, designing both two-seater sports cars and heavy luxury sedans. F. Brichet used different chassis, including Cadillac, Hispano-Suiza, Ballot, Bugatti and Alfa Romeo chassis. Only a few of the Brichet vehicles still exist. There is a beautiful Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS from 1931 and a Brichet Delage from 1923, the Delage had a 32 hp 4-cylinder in-line engine and reached a top speed of 90 km/h. The Delage was equipped with a 4-cylinder in-line engine. The special thing about the Delage was the braking system, which did not work on just one axle but on all four wheels, as it was common at that time. It was not possible to determine whether the bodybuilder also used this brake system in his other cars due to a lack of information about the Brichet designs.
