The Sima-Violet is prominent on the list of ugly cars.  French cycle cars were never very beautiful to look at, but the cars by Sima-Violet are downright ugly.  The factory on the Rue Lazare in Paris manufactured the small racing cars between 1924 and 1929.  The model was powered by an air-cooled, two-cylinder, two-stroke engine.  The small racings cars were very fast though.

The relatively light car actually did not consist of much more than a chassis with an engine and a seat and the 496 cc engine delivered sufficient horsepower.  In 1927, Sima-Violet finished in third place in the Boulogne Grand Prix.  The make was justifiably proud as first and second place were taken by Bugatti.  The Sima-Violet was powered by a 1484 cc, four-cylinder, two-stroke, boxer engine equipped with a Cozette compressor.
