De Dion-Bouton was a French automobile and a tram manufacturer between 1883-1932. The company was founded by the Marquis Jules Felix Philippe Albert de Dion, Georges Bouton, and Bouton's brother-in-law Charles Trpardoux and was named the De Dion Bouton et Trpardoux Est.

 

They had been already supplying steam engines for boats and thought of making a steam car. With the boiler and engine mounted at the front, driving the front wheels by belts and steering with the rear, they first built one in 1882 but that burned to ashes during trials. They built a second one and named it La Marquise in 1883 with a more conventional steering and rear-wheel drive, capable of seating four and it was a success.

 

In the same year the firm launched steam tractors that was designed to tow carriages for passengers or freight. These used an innovative axle design which would become known as the De Dion tube. These tractor carriages were a commercial success as it moved several passengers and cargo over long distances.

 

In 1:43 scale this is a metal model handcrafted in Italy.
