The French are also proud of their automobiles. Proof of this can be seen at the Musée Peugeot, located 310 miles [500 km] from Paris, in Sochaux – which is also home to the biggest factory emblazoned with the lion crest. It’s known as “The Peugeot Adventure,” after all, its biography stretches back 130 years, farther back than actual cars. Back then, they produced bicycles, home appliances and even coins. But what is most amazing are the well-preserved rarities, including the Type 1, a steam-powered tricycle from 1891, considered the first car in the history of Peugeot automobiles; and the Type 2 1892, the family’s eldest with a gas-powered engine. For racing fans, the competition wing features rally cars, automobiles designed for long-duration competitions, and even a 1994 McLaren.
