Dufaux was a Swiss car manufacturer established in Geneva in 1904 by Charles and Frédéric Dufaux. The first Dufaux was built to enter the famous Gordon Bennett Cup race, held that year in the region of Taunus near Frankfurt am Main. Manufacturing race cars became too expensive, so they ceased production in 1907.

This powerful 1904 Dufaux Byplace Course Type 100 monster, with one of the biggest engines in the Muse National De L'automobile Museum, was built by two brothers, who later abandoned automobile production for banking.
