The Type BP1 Bébé Peugeot was designed in 1912 by Ettore Bugatti and built under license by Peugeot, making its first public appearance at the Paris Motor Show in 1912. Production began in 1913 and continued until 1916. In total, approximately 3,000 Type BP1 Bébé Peugeot cars were built. This 1913 Type BP1 Bébé Peugeot, #11198, is a single-family-owned automobile that has spent the majority of its life in New England. Passed down through generations, it was purchased new by the current owner’s grandfather in 1913 on Broadway in New York City. After purchase, the car was driven over two days to the family summer estate in Lenox, MA, to be used for touring the countryside and town “without having to saddle a horse.” The day after arrival at the family estate, the car was immediately put into service giving rides to the family and neighborhood children. According to family stories the “elaborate suspension handled the dirt roads and fields with ease.” In 1953 the Peugeot underwent a reconditioning by the current owner’s father, repairing what was needed and keeping all of the original parts save for a new top, upholstery and paint. Recently the car has been serviced by a qualified early auto restoration shop. Careful attention was given to repairing what was mechanically necessary while not impacting the period patina and authenticity of the car. Vehicle is sold with a current Maine registration and Certificate of Title.
