Information about Hommell

Hommell is a distinctive marque in the automotive landscape, founded by Michel Hommell, a French publisher and sports car enthusiast. Launched in 1990, Hommell aimed to capture the spirit of classic sports cars infused with modern dynamics. This vision was embodied in their debut model, the Hommell Barquette, which premiered at the 1994 Geneva Motor Show. This car was a revelation, combining a lightweight chassis with a potent engine, wrapped in a body that echoed the elegance of vintage racing cars.

Built in the quaint town of Lohéac, Brittany, Hommell cars were crafted in a factory that was part of a larger automotive ecosystem, including a museum and a racetrack. This synergy between history, culture, and engineering became a unique selling point for the brand. However, despite a strong start and a passionate following, Hommell ceased production in 2003 due to economic challenges.

Today, Hommell remains a revered name among enthusiasts, celebrated for its brief but bright flare in the automotive firmament. The cars, especially the Barquette, are coveted collectibles, appreciated for their design purity and driving pleasure. Hommell’s legacy is a testament to the enduring allure of a brand that dared to dream differently in the competitive auto industry.
