About Quiz #382: No winner: 1924/25 Rhemag 1 Litre


About Quiz #382: No winner: 1924/25 Rhemag 1 LitreWe never know what will happen with our weekly quiz, but certainly the Rhemag made by the Renania Motoren Fabrik A.G. (Weikonsee, Berlin) seems to have been too hard, even to our more experienced readers... because we haven´t received one single response! Not one reader dared trying to guess for marque or model. To us there were two distinctive clues about the car´s origins: The Continetal whitewall tyres and the headlights, both very common in many German cars of the 1920s.

Anyway, the information about this ephemeral car builder is hard to find in books or internet. As you can see in this page, Rhemag was launched at the 1924 Berlin Motor Salon and lasted only till 1925. Previously the company had produced 11 cylinder rotary aero engines under Siemens-Halske license.

We found the photos accompanying this article in the old french magazine "La Vie Automobile" dated 10-2-1925, being the article signed by Henry Petit. The car is described as a 1 Litre four cylinder (62by86 mm) with the engine block made of aluminium. In the article the car was claimed to run really well, reaching the speed of 100 km/h in 400-500 metres from standstill. Undoubtely an interesting machine, but as far as we know none of these has survived. Or? 

Next week a new chance. Or right now at PostWarClassic!
