Cottin & Desgouttes cars in Movies

Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang

The United Artists film Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang, launched in 1969, starts with a sequence of imaginary “Grand Prix”. Alongside several make-believe cars built for the film, there were a few real Edwardian cars, including a Cottin & Desgouttes. It appears this was the  Grand Prix 1911 that now belongs to George Wingard.

Three images from Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang – the Cottin & Desgouttes is number “37”. In the first two pictures, the car is behind number “3” – the star of the movie.

La vie est un roman

Alain Resnais’ 1983 film La vie est un roman : the opening sequence of this movie stars Fanny Ardant and André Dussolier in a Cottin & Desgouttes. Here are a few pictures:
