Overview

1901-1908

The Beaufort Motor Company was English, but the cars were made for it by the Berlin firm of Argus, and so ascribing the make's nationality is a matter of debate. Beaufort cars were first seen at the April 1902 Motor Show and comprised two single-cylinder models, a 6hp with belt drive and a shaft-driven car of 8hp, both having magneto ignition which was quite unusual at this early date. Larger two and four-cylinder models soon followed and the cars seem to have sold well enough since there are regular references to them in period motoring literature. A six-cylinder car was introduced in 1906, but an attempted expansion into the bus industry in 1907 led to the failure of the business.
