French Engineer Marcel Alamagny by the year 1948 had developed a small 4-seat, 4-wheeled prototype automobile. The body was built with symmetrical front ends. The wheels were configured in a diamond pattern, and the Alamagny was powered by a small 569cc four-cylinder Simca engine--mounted transversely.

Shown at the 1948 Paris Salon, this prototype was never manufactured.
