Bignan

Information about Bignan

Founded in 1918 by Jacques Bignan in Courbevoie, Paris, the Bignan brand was a notable player in the early automotive industry. The company started strong with Jacques Bignan producing bespoke engines and then launching his own automotive venture immediately after World War I. The first Bignan car, introduced at the 1919 Motor Show, was known for its robust 2,940 cc four-cylinder engine. Bignan achieved some motorsport success, notably a podium finish at the 1923 Le Mans 24 Hour race and a victory at the 1924 Monte Carlo Rally. However, the company faced difficulties in the late 1920s and was taken over by Société La Cigogne in 1926. Bignan’s operations continued under various ownerships until it eventually went out of business in 1931. Despite its brief lifespan, Bignan made a mark with its engineering innovations and competitive spirit in motorsports.
