The judges at this year's 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance have been searching all day to find this year's 'Best in Show', and they have finally come up with a winner. Peter Mullin's 1934 Voisin C-25 Aerodyne earned the title after being named the best car in the 1932-1937 European Classic category. Yes, the same Peter Mullin of the renowned Mullin Automotive Museum.

Haven't heard of Voisin? Founded by Gabriel Voisin, one of the leading European engineers and aerodynamicists at the turn of the 20th century, the company first manufactured airplanes before building automobiles after World War I. Their debut car, the C-2, was launched at the Paris motor show in 1920.

The C-25 was unveiled more than a decade later at the Paris Motor Show, featuring a 3.0-liter inline-6 producing just over 100 horsepower. Three design variants were made including the Cimier, Clariere and our featured example, the Aerodyne. Just 28 examples of the C-25 were ever produced, making it a very rare and desirable car.

      Neat, 14 pictures of the front of the car and one frontal off to the side. It would have been nice to see the rest of the car.

      Very interesting to see this car. I can see lots here that might have influenced the Citroen 2CV, which was being engineered at much the same time. And yes, the repetitive spam here really gets in the way of enjoying the site.

        I was thinking the same thing... and from the front view photo (no comment required), I'm amazed at how narrow this car is. Look at how shoulder-to-shoulder the two men in the front (one of them presumably Mr. Mullin) are. Nice to see Best In Show go to a car that isn't, apparently, monumental in scale.

      I had the chance of visiting Peter Mullin's house once a few years ago (friend of a friend) before his museum opened and his collection is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen, and some amazing stories to go with the cars.

      Voisin made some of the most incredible car designs of the Thirties. Visualize a Bugatti on acid. Their craziest design (can't remember the model number) was a straight-12. Yes, straight-12. Essentially two 6 cylinder engines end-to-end on a common crankcase. You can only imagine the length of the hood.
