Original Atlas Series

The Amil car – “Tintin in the Land of Soviets” (1929)   Back in Berlin, Tintin has a dangerous Bolshevist arrested by the police and receives twenty thousand marks as reward for his capture. Having decided to travel to Russia again, he immediately purchases a powerful sports car. Accelerating he speeds off in the pouring rain (see page 138), only to loose control on a level crossing at the same time that the train for Brussels passes … The racing car Tintin buys seems to have been inspired by Hergé from various “great sport” models of the 1920s. Among these certainly the Amilcar CGS.
