A bit of history on the UNIC

Georges Richard established in the Richard Company in Paris approx 1850 to make photographic meters & equipment, Then later developed Bicycles the company later turned to building horseless carriages circa 1897. 1901, Henri Brasier was hired as an engineer, who eased Richard out of the firm which then became known as Richard-Brasier and then, simply Brasier. Monsieur Richard than went on to establish a second company, Unic, in 1906.
Richard chose the name Unic because he planned on building a single size of a two-cylinder engine, groups of which would be used to make four- and six-cylinder models, which was truly a unique idea. By 1911, engineering had advanced to the point where the 800 cc engine of the Unic GS was a single monobloc of four cylinders, although the name persisted.

Around two-thirds of Unic production were developed to taxi cabs, which eventually filled the streets of London and Pairs. This example, however, had a private owner and was given custom coachwork by the Gordon Carriage Works, of London UK

800cc side-valve 2 cylinder engine 12 horsepower. There is a 4-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel mechanical brakes.
