Between 1900 and 1950, Imperia wrote one of the finest pages in the history of the Belgian automotive industry. The brand experienced both commercial and sporting success. Its flattering sales were accompanied by convincing success in different international competitions on road or circuit. Its connection with Minerva, another Belgian make, also enabled it to occupy the prestige cars niche with models that were the benchmark of elegance and distinction.
Innovation as a trademark.
With its own circuit on top of its Nessonvaux plant, Imperia Mark 1 showed boldness and innovation during the 50 years of its epic existence. Its sporting successes have not hidden the fact that with the Auto-Mixte in 1905 Imperia created the first hybrid engine, also called at the time the "petro-electric" engine.
The sole aim in reviving the brand is to make a similar impression in a highly-specialised and forward-looking field.
Being able to rely on such an eminent past is already a guarantee for the future.
