The Rolland-Pilain cars pioneered many innovative solutions despite very limited financial resources. One such feature was hydraulic brakes. The models ranged from family cars to sports and luxury cars.

The partners started by repairing and selling motor vehicle, before they started producing their own cars, which appeared only in 1907.

In 1911 the business relocated to 44, place Rabelais, still in Tours, and the company became a Société anonyme (effectively a limited liability company). The company would retain this status until the money ran out, in 1925.
A lack of funds led to Rolland and Pilain losing control of the company in 1926. Things went downhill from there. Automobile production ended in 1927 and the company was declared in default of its debts in 1928. After a period of struggle, the factory closed in 1932. When production ceased, more than 5,000 cars had been built.
The car is totally original. But the condition is not very good. It has to get a new paint job. The interior of the car is also not good. It has a lot of cracks in it. One of the headlights is missing also. It is a great car, but you have to put a lot of work in it. To get a good idea of the car, we advise you to come to one of the viewing days.
