1903 - 1905

As Korte, Atkinson & Co., this firm had made motor tricycles and quadricycles of De Dion-Bouton type since 1900, and in 1903 a new company launched the Korte car.  It had a 12/14hp 2-cylinder engine mounted transversely at the front of the car, with a 4-speed gearbox and double-chain drive.  4-or 6-seater tonneau bodies could be provided.  A distinguishing feature was a large acetylene headlamp which projected way ahead of the front of the car.
