Manufactured between 1934 and 1939, the Type LR was a lightweight sports roadster that in tuned and modified form provided privateers with a competitive mount for the 175cc racing class. Indeed, an LR won the French Championship in 1937 while another 175cc Terrot won its class at the Bol d'Or in 1938. The LR was powered by an overhead-valve engine with bore/stroke dimensions of 56x71mm, which drove via a three-speed gearbox initially, later versions having four speeds. A dry weight of 90kg (198lb) and a top speed of 120km/h (62mph) were claimed. Modified for racing, this handsome Terrot LR is offered with French Carte Grise normale.
