Coachwork: DeCorvaia et Cie
The French Lorraine-Dietrich company built automobile and aircraft engines from 1896 until 1935. In 1913 Dietrich introduced a new model in two wheelbases, the A1-6 and B2-6, joined three years later by the B3-6, with either a short or long wheelbase. All used the same 3,445cc six-cylinder engine.

A team of three Lorraine-Dietrich B3-6s came in first, second and third at the 24 Hours of LeMans race in 1926. the winning car, driven by Robert Block & Andre Rossignol, averaged over 100 kilometers per hour. To celebrate their success at Lemans, the company built several LeMans style chassis.

This Sports Roadster example is one of the LeMans style motorcars and wears coachwork by the French coachbuilder DeCorvaia et Cie.

The B3-6, nicknamed 'the Silken Six' was famous for their quietness of the engine; like many French racing engines, such as Bugatti, it had no cooling fan to disturb the peace.
