Footnotes

  • Hanomag's first motor car – the 2/10PS - was launched in 1925. The 2/10PS was powered by a 499cc 10hp single-cylinder engine, which drove the rear axle by a chain (there was no differential). Top speed was around 60km/h. Production ceased after three years when 15,775 had been made, very few of which survive.

    One of the very last built, chassis number '15460' was formerly exhibited at 'Movie World' in Buena Park, California as part of the Brucker Collection. This Hanomag was featured in 'Car Classics' magazine (May 1969 edition, copy on file) in an article describing how it had been used in smuggling activities across the US/Mexico border. The car was seized by the authorities and later found its way to 'Movie World' where it was restored to former glory. There is a registration document on file in the name of 'Movie World' (James Brucker) dating from 1978.

    In December 1991 the Hanomag was sold to Belgium and since then has formed part of a prominent private collection (import document on file). The car is largely in original condition, though the bodywork has benefited from refurbishment over the years and a mechanical overhaul was carried out at the same time. Photographs of the restoration works are on file together with a publicity panel featuring Ferdinand Porsche with the Hanomag. A very modern looking car for its age, '15460' is one of the very rare surviving 2/10PS models and worthy of a place in any important collection.

    Ex collection Brucker
    Hanomag 2/10 PS « Kommisbrot » 1928
    Châssis n° 15460

    •Conçue avec l'aide de Ferdinand Porsche
    •Une des voitures légères les plus populaires de son époque
    •Autrefois exposée au Movie World de Buena Park, en Californie
    •En provenance d'une importante collection belge
    •Une des rares survivantes

    La première voiture Hanomag – la 2/10 PS - fut lancée en 1925. La 2/10 PS était animée par un moteur monocylindre de 499 cm3 de 10 ch entrainant l'essieu arrière par chaîne (sans différentiel). Sa vitesse de pointe était de l'ordre de 60 km/h. La production cessa au bout de trois années après que 15 775 exemplaires aient été construits, dont très peu ont survécu.

    La voiture, une des toutes dernières fabriquées, numéro de châssis 15460, était autrefois exposée au Movie World de Buena Park, en Californie dans la collection Brucker. Cette Hanomag a été l'objet d'un article dans le magazine Car Classics (numéro de mai 1969, au dossier) relatant ses activités de contrebande à la frontière américano-mexicaine. La voiture avait été saisie par les autorités et avait plus tard trouvé le chemin du Movie World où elle avait été restaurée. Des papiers d'immatriculation au nom de Movie World (James Brucker) datant de 1978 figurent au dossier.

    En décembre 1991, l'Hanomag fut vendue en Belgique et a depuis fait partie d'une importante collection privée (papiers d'importation au dossier). La voiture est globalement dans son état d'origine, bien que sa carrosserie ait fait l'objet d'une rénovation dans les années précédentes et qu'une réfection mécanique ait été effectuée à la même époque. Des photographies de la restauration figurent au dossier avec une publicité montrant Ferdinand Porsche avec l'Hanomag. Voiture à l'aspect très moderne pour son âge, 15460 est l'une des très rares 2/10 PS survivantes et mérite sa place dans toute collection importante.
